How would I go about deleting data from an entire section upon closing the workbook.  

I would like to delete the range B2:J1000 at the close.

Any ideas?  thanks,

The following macro (which must be installed in the ThisWorkbook code pane) will clear cells B2:J1000 from the first worksheet in the workbook, then save the file. It is triggered by the user trying to close the workbook.
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Worksheets(1).Range("B2:J1000").ClearContents
ThisWorkbook.Save
End Sub

Open in new window
