To revert unsaved changes to the previous values, click the Refresh Sheet button. This also updates the sheet with the most recent saved edits from other users.
To clear saved or unsaved data, select one or more editable cells and:
- Press Delete or Backspace from your keyboard.
- Right-click and select Clear.
Clearing data generally results in blank cells, with these exceptions:
- Clear isn't available for blue cells.
- Delete, Backspace, and Clear result in zero for cumulative accounts that have the Plan by Delta account setting.
- Delete, Backspace, and Clear result in no change for cells with shared formulas. Instead, enter zero to clear.
- Delete, Backspace, and Clear result in no change for text selector and level selector cells in modeled sheets. Instead, choose another selection. You can clear text selector cells that have custom dimensions.
