Clear Contents From Specific Row

I found this code on the web here - http://www.vbaexpress.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-31071.html - and assigned it to a command button. It works fine for the entire row but I want to clear contents from left of column E. In other words, clear contents from A to E only.


Dim rStart As Range, rLast As Range, rConstants As Range

 If Not TypeOf Selection Is Range Then Exit Sub

 Set rStart = Selection.Rows(1).EntireRow.Cells(1, 1)
 Set rLast = Selection.Rows(1).EntireRow.Cells(1, Selection.Parent.Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft)
 Set rConstants = Nothing
 On Error Resume Next
 Set rConstants = Range(rStart, rLast).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
 On Error GoTo 0

 If Not rConstants Is Nothing Then
 Call rConstants.ClearContents
 End If

Thanks!

Find and change:

Set rLast = Selection.Rows(1).EntireRow.Cells(1, 5)

Works great, thanks! I will award you the points. I'm curious if this will this work on specific cells? For example, if I wanted to clear contents in A-E but skip C? I have another spreadsheet that I may want to try this on.

Sub test()
Dim rStart As Range, rLast As Range, rConstants As Range
Dim rStart2 As Range, rLast2 As Range, rConstants2 As Range

 If Not TypeOf Selection Is Range Then Exit Sub

 Set rStart = Selection.Rows(1).EntireRow.Cells(1, 1)
 Set rLast = Selection.Rows(1).EntireRow.Cells(1, 2)
 Set rStart2 = Selection.Rows(1).EntireRow.Cells(1, 4)
 Set rLast2 = Selection.Rows(1).EntireRow.Cells(1, 5)
 
 Set rConstants = Nothing
 Set rConstants2 = Nothing
 On Error Resume Next
 Set rConstants = Range(rStart, rLast).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
 Set rConstants2 = Range(rStart2, rLast2).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
 On Error GoTo 0

 If Not rConstants Is Nothing Then
 Call rConstants.ClearContents
 End If
 If Not rConstants2 Is Nothing Then
 Call rConstants2.ClearContents
 End If
 
End Sub
