Copy Preceding Single Cell Data Into Following Empty Cells In Same Column
Sep 5, 2013
I need a macro that will examine column A starting at A2 and working its way down copying the data in the first cell (A2) and then delete that row. If the next cells are empty (usually the next 5 cells) it should paste this copied value in each of the empty cells until it comes to the next cell with data in it. At this point it should copy this next value and delete the subsequent row and copy this value in each of the empty cells directly following (again, usually 5) until it finds the next cell that has data in it. At this point, again the whole process begins again repeating it self until it comes to the end where no more data is.
I am working with arrays that extend far beyond their actual content, and so i am looking for a way, through macros, to find the first blank cell in a column and then copy all preceding cells in that column.
I have been using this code I found awhile back to fill blank cells in a column with the preceding value. but it leaves the very last cell blank. Like this.
Is there a way to add possibly a "Do until column B is null or """?
Code: Sub FillBlanks() Dim rRange1 As Range, rRange2 As Range Dim iReply As Integer If Selection.Cells.Count = 1 Then MsgBox "You must select your list and include the blank cells", vbInformation, "OzGrid.com"
I have rather large Excel file that spans around 245 columns & has multiple users responsible for certain columns. Columns are chunked to provide data about a specific group. Every 72 hours, I need to provide to managers what’s currently on this file in a specific summary format.
I’ve recorded a macro that gets me half way there. Here’s where I’m clueless. After my macro deletes unnecessary columns, what remains are the columns for “Main Data” group + each of the 5 “Business” groups (Investors, Lawyers, Credit, Finance, and Support) which would have identical column headings.
(1) Name (2) Address (3) ID# (4) Control#
Furthermore, for each of the 5 “Business” groups, there are 9 slots (ie- a user can enter up to 9 unique entries for a particular group.)
Example- The Investor group contains 9 slots. Each slot will contain the 4 columns mentioned above. So there are 46 slots in total – 1 for Main Data, 45 (5 groups x 9 slots) for Business groups.
MY PROBLEM: I need a macro to now cut & paste all data from each of the 45 Business groups slots & then paste at the bottom of the MAIN DATA slot.
The final file would be 4 columns (as listed above) wide. Data from each of the 45 business group slots would be one below the other- all of it underneath the data in the Main Data group.
I attempted to record a macro where I’m copying a section’s data range starting from row2 to row4000 (I know there will never be 4000 entries. I did this just to ensure that all future data would be captured) then pasting that after the last entry in the Main Data.
Example- I’d copy data from Investor1 slot(starting at column E2-H2) & go about 4000 rows down. Then I’d press CTRL+Down Arrow key in column A & then click the down arrow one time to take me into 1st empty cell where I would paste my copied data. I was going to repeat this process for the remaining 44 slots.
I’ve added some extra entries to test the macro & the problem is that the recorded macro is pasting data in specific cell location in column A instead for looking for the 1st empty cell in column A & then pasting the copied data.
So far I've gone thought the net & tried to paste in a few VBA posts/tips that I thought would work. Here's what I have so far from tinkering around. I need someone to tell me what to replace the xxxxxxx line with. This would be the language to tell Excel to paste copied data range into the first blank cell in column A.

I am trying to come up with the most efficient way to copy data to multiple sheets within the same Excel workbook. The original data exists within one column on a summary sheet (could have up to 500 individual entries). I want to copy each individual entry to a unique sheet (that already exists), but in the exact same cell location within each sheet. I would only want to copy the original data value and not any formatting. Is there an efficient way to do this?
In my example spreadsheet, the original data is on the SUMMARY sheet. Sheets A through J would be the target sheets, with cell B2 as the target location for each of those sheets. My example shows the result of a manual copy paste value process, but I am hoping to automate that.
1 workbook, 2 worksheets (or tabs). On tab 1, I want a formula/alert that tells the user if any duplicate values exist in Column A of tab 2
Tab 2, Column A, has Unique ID's (6 digit numeric values)
The user manually inputs the ID's on new rows in Column A
Row 1 is reserved and in use for something else Row 2 is my header, so cell A2 says "ID" Row 3-623 currently contain unique ID's
When the user inputs a new ID into cell A624, then they return to Tab 1, I want my formula/alert on Tab 1 to tell the user that they have duplicates in Column A of tab 2. I know the Conditional Formatting, but if the user copies in 100 new values, they won't necessarily see the highlighted cells. My tab 1 is my "checks and balances" and the last place the user is suppposed to look to ensure that they haven't created any duplicate ID's. If the user sees a warning message that says duplicates exist, then I'll tell them that they need to look at column A (for cells that have been conditionally highlighted).
One issue that I'm running into with the conditional highlighting is that I want cells A3:A1048576 to already have the conditional formatting - this way when the user inserts a value into Cell A624, then A625, etc they conditional formatting is already there. Right now with data in cells A3:A623, cells A624:A1048576 are all highlighted with the Red/Bold Red Font (which is okay I guess), but ideally it would be nice to not count 2+ empty cells as duplicates and I'll have to have my formula on Tab 1 not include the blank cells.
I DO NOT want to use the Remove Duplicates feature of Excel 2010. If I remove them I could be removing data in columns B, C, D, etc that belong to the Unique ID. I just need the user to be told in Tab 1 that they DO have duplicates and I'll train the user how to research this and fix it.
The reason I want to look for duplicates in the entire Column A is because the list of Unique ID's will grow over time.
I have a worksheet on which the data is already grouped. At the top of each group is a row that contains only the group name. Since the rest of that row is blank, I want to use a blank cell on that row as a reference, then copy the group name to a newly created column, then fill that column down to the next group.
The goal is to create a column that contains the group name, rather than just having the group name as a " header" at the top of each group.
I'm trying to write a program for work. One sheet (whereiseverything.xls) will have a list of parts column E and where it is in the process column (k). Column E of this sheet will have multiple part numbers. (Sometimes duplicated.) I would like to figure out how to write a code to Auto filter (whereiseverything.xls) sheet and copy only one P/N from (whereiseverything.xls) column E onto another Workbook Worksheet (Commit status.xls) column. After that the sheet must copy all of the locations of that P/N from whereiseverything.xls column K into and under the P/N of the Commitstatus.xls.
It will continue to autofilter and copy from where is everything, the "one" p/n and all of its locations into another empty column of Commitstatus.xls until it no longer has part numbers to autofilter on whereiseverything. I am extremely green on VBA programming but here is my first attempt.
Windows("Where is everything commits .xls").Activate Windows("whereiseverything.xxx").Activate Columns("D:D").Select Selection.AutoFilter Windows("Where is everything commits .xls").Activate
Windows("whereiseverything.xxx").Activate Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="7516113-905" \<--this Is one p/n Columns("J:J").Select Selection.Copy....................................
Is there way i can have a macro attatched to a button that when clicked, will copy BX:BX on sheet1, remove all the blank cells and put it on D:D on sheet2. Next time it is clicked, it will put BX:BX on to the next available column after removing the blanks and so on, filling a column at a time on sheet2?
If the above is easy, it would be really good if it could paste into columns until it reaches column H and then go back to D again but paste below the data already there, then E, but below, etc. I think though that the last bit is asking a bit much and is just cosmetic and easier to print, so dont worry too much.
I need my macro to copy and paste from one worksheet to another, which is fine. However I need the copied value to be pasted into the last empty cell in a specific column. It is currently pasting each copied value into the last empty cell in column 'A' regardless of which column I specify it to copy to in my code.
I am a macro newbie and I think this is beyond me.
I've been trying all morning with no success to make a macro that will copy data from all columns of one workbook containing specified header text to a single column in a different workbook.
So for example, I've got a workbook called coupon barcodes that has multiple tabs for each person redeeming coupons on sheets 2-88 (sheet one can be skipped) and some of the columns are labeled "voucher 1" in cell A4 or B4 or C4 etc. with a list of all the coupon barcodes that customer redeemed below that. I want all of the data from all of the columns in this workbook that have the header "voucher 1" to be copied and pasted into one column (order doesn't matter) also labeled "voucher 1" in another workbook I have open called vouchering database.
There must be a way to do this that is easier than searching the internet all afternoon again
I have a macro that loops through several workbooks and copies data to one common sheet. Works great with one flaw that I have not been able to resolve. I am using the End Property example below, this works great as long as there are more than one cell with data. With one cell having data this takes you to the bottom of the sheet.
i need to have 6 or so cells copied and pasted into another sheet. (when a button is pressed) However before the data is pasted it checks if there is anything in the cell(s) that are being pasted into, if there is something then move down a line and paste. Here is the code i have already:
Sub Order2Invoice() Sheets("OrderDatabase").Select Range("B65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Select With ActiveCell .Value = Orderform!G5.Value .Offset(0, 1) = Orderform!E10.Value .Offset(0, 2) = Orderform!E11.Value .Offset(0, 3) = Orderform!E12.Value .Offset(0, 4) = Orderform!E13.Value .Offset(0, 5) = Orderform!E15.Value .Offset(0, 8) = Orderform!E15.Value End With Sheets("Invoice").Select End Sub
I have a workbook with many sheets of similar but not identical data. I need to extract columns from each sheet based on 5 header criteria and paste them to a single sheet. Each worksheet contains these 5 criteria.
I've been working with the VBA script I've pasted below. It's grabbing the 5 column criteria that I have in sheet 12, and comparing them to sheet 1 in the workbook, then copying them to sheet 12. This much is good, but I need the script to also return the data from the other worksheets as well. I've tried modifying the script based on other loop functions in other scripts I've found, but I'm not having any luck.
Is there an easy way that if any cell in column A is blank it can copy the value from the closest non-blank cell above it? I eventually have to export data from a workbook into a database. But I cannot have any cells in column A as null or blank.
1. There are no blank rows, and at least 1 cell in each row has a value. 2. The person who constructed the sheet did not fill in all cells in column A for each row, they imply that if the cell is blank then it belongs to the same value as whatever the cell above it has. Ie, all similar rows are grouped together. 3. Of course, I only need column A filled in for rows that have data in at least 1 of their columns. 4. Simple worksheets with no formulas to worry about.
Additionally, if it is possible to get a macro so I can apply the code to all worksheets in my workbook at once, can I get that too? In the example below (where .... are blanks) I would like A2 to read 'Fruit' and A4 to read 'Meat'
ColA ColB Colc ---- ----- ------- Fruit apple red .... grape green Meat ham pink .... beef brown
I'm trying to work out how to take all cells with data from multiple columns and stack them in a single column.
Here's the history...
I have multiple part numbers in single cells in column A. I perform a text-to-columns function. The resulting part numbers spread across multiple columns (say, B through K). Now I need to get all the part numbers, in their own cells, stacked in column A for one continuous list of single cell part numbers.
Is there a VBA option for cutting only the data cells from Column B-K and pasting the data at the bottom of column A while avioding blank cells?
I am looking for a formula function or a vba code where:
- In workbook1 find the first cell that is empty between range A7 - A10, - In workbook2, in Range G10- G13: find the word "Day1". - If the word "Day1" exists in cells G10 or G11 or G12 or G13, copy the particular cell or cells where "Day1" exists to the first found empty cell or cells in range A7-A10 in workbook1.
Lets suppose cells A8, A9, A10(workbook1) are empty cells, that means A8 is the first empty cell. And G10,G11,G12, G13 (workbook2) have the word "Day1" Then, Copy cell G10 into cell A8 Copy cell G11 into cell A9 Copy cell G12 into cell A10
I am using a worksheet to scan or enter students into a school event and determine their eligibility to participate in the event. Everything is working great but I need to do the following on Enter Student button click:
1) Cut scanned value (ID number) from input Cell A1 2) Paste value into next empty cell in column A (Rows build as students are inputted) 3) Copy Eligibility status (text) from column F into A6
I have a limited VBA/Macro background and have NEVER got a button to work.
At work, we've got a program that outputs the results of a search into an Excel file, in column 1 below.
17,43,61,63 17 43 61 63
23,29,53,57,77,79 23 29 53 57 77 79
17,29,63,69,71,75,79 17 29 63 69 71 75 79
11,43 11 43
I need to get that list of numbers listed out to the right, with one number per cell. The list in column one could possibly contain from 1 to 20 numbers, and the last number is always without the comma after it.
