Full Version: Clear data in a Spreadsheet by programming means
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
There appears to be no way to Clear a Column (or Row) of data in a Spreadsheet by programming means.
So now I am required to write a Zero to each Cell in the Column, 1-10,000 Rows.
I have 6 columns.

Takes several minutes on the Prime.

You can do this directly in the Spreadsheet App.
It does it in an instant.
However, there really needs to be a way to do it programatically.
Needs to include a "Range" ability.

ex. Spreadsheet.Clear(A1:C10)

or better for programming and absolutely preferable


not really needed but could have for convenience:

Clear a Column (say A)
Clear a Row (say 2)

Any thoughts or is this a new feature request?
did you try this?
C1:F9999:="" or C1:F9999:={{}}
You can also execute this in the program of the spreadsheet app.

Honest to God, I thought I had searched the site and had actually tried what you have suggested.
Obviously, I had my head up my kazoo.

It works fine and you have my sincere gratitude.
Come here so I can give you a big hug.
