Hi,

I have a table on "Sheet2" within the range "B5:BH73".

I need a macro loop to iterate over each column.

It needs to check if row 10 = 0 then clear contents of cells 5 to 73 of that column.

I have the following so far:

For Each rng In Sheet("Sheet2").Range("B5:BH73").Columns
  'If cell 10 = 0 Then clear Cells 5 to 73
Next rng

Open in new window


How do I refer to cell 10 inside the For Loop so I can check its contents?

thanks

Hello,

maybe like this:

Option Explicit

Sub ttest()
Dim Rng As Range
For Each Rng In ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet2").Range("B10:BH10")
    If Rng.Value = 0 Then Range(Cells(5, Rng.Column), Cells(73, Rng.Column)).ClearContents
Next Rng
End Sub

Open in new window


cheers, teylyn

mhdi, although teylyn's code works just fine, if you want to know the syntax for your way then it could be something like this

For Each Rng In Sheets("Sheet2").Range("B5:BH73").Columns
  If Rng.Cells(6) = 0 Then Rng.ClearContents
Next Rng
0

Thankyou. I tried both versions but ended up using ssaqibh's code.

@teylyn your code seemed to always delete the contents on the first sheet of the workbook.
