This tutorial will demonstrate how to clear the formatting of a cell or entire range of cells.
You can clear cell formatting by using the ClearFormats method of the Range Object.
Note: Instead, if you’d like to clear everything about the cell use .Clear instead.
Clear Formats From a Range of Cells
This will clear Cell Formatting for Range A1:C1.
Sub ClearFormats() Range("A1:C1").ClearFormats End Sub
Sub ClearSheetFormats() Cells.ClearFormats End Sub
If you are working with an extremely large range in a large Workbook, Excel could potentially freeze. you could also loop through each cell to prevent Excel from freezing.
Loop through Cells and Clear Formats
The following example will eliminate the formatting for each cell in a range using a loop:
Public Sub RemoveFormatting() Dim c As Range For Each c In Range("A:A") c.ClearFormats Next c End Sub
