Hi! My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you today.

I am not familiar with the behavior you describe as seeing in Excel. Might you be willing to work with me via a remote session in order that I can see the error and figure out what's going on?

Look forward to hearing back from you soon!

you can create a macro to do it. but how difficult it is depends on which cells you want to erase and whether they remain the same consistent range
