Resetting a Worksheet

EE Pros,

I have a macro that clears a number of cells through out a workbook.  Here's the slight dilemma.  If I fire the macro, and I have an outline collapsed on another worksheet, it will give me an error message.  For that reason, I need for the macro that clears the cells to "expand the outline" before it clears the results and thus works and won't give me the error on this line:  .Range("E:E") = "".  If I expand the OUTLINE to level 3, it will clear the Worksheet without a problem.  How do I add a line or two of code to auto expand the outline to level 3 before it tries to clear the cells?

Here is what the code looks like.

Sub ClearSelections()
'ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="password"
Dim I As Integer
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

   With Worksheets("Use_Cases")
   ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="password"


.Range("E:E") = ""
.Range("G800:G812") = ""
.Range("H7:H800") = ""
'.Range("r2") = 0
End With
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    Application.EnableEvents = True
.Protect Password:="jam"
End With
End Sub

Create a macro while doing it manually and then include code like you see in the new macro.

Try to insert this bit of code depending on how many levels you have in your Outline:

ActiveSheet.Outline.ShowLevels RowLevels:=1
ActiveSheet.Outline.ShowLevels RowLevels:=2
ActiveSheet.Outline.ShowLevels RowLevels:=3

Insert these lines of code before you Clear the worksheet
