Questions and Answers on Excel Macros
Topic: What is the difference between "Delete" and "ClearContents"?
If I have a value of 30 in cell A2 and I use Range("A1").Delete to clear cell A1 the 30 from cell A2 moves up to cell A1.
When you use the word Delete, you are sending the cell to Kingdom come and the cell below (by default) take its place. If you just want to empty cell A1 use Range("A1").ClearContents
