### How to delete the data but keep the formulas

Formulas don't usually contain data, but display some transformation of data held in cells that do contain the data.
ie cell C3 may have a formula that says "=C1-C2"

Which means that C3 will display the result of the operation of subtracting the content of C2 from the value held in C1"

Clear out only the cells that contain the source values (C1 & C2) and your formula (C3) will remain.
