Count Empty Cells VBA

I am trying to count empty cells in the range from the macro.

Idea is to count empty cells in one row, but cells to be counted are discontinued (range A10:A15, A25:A30. ETC....). Other difficulty is that I can not define the range exactly like this, but I have to use ActiveCell.Offset (0,10) or ActiveCell.Offset(0,11) etc...
ActiveCell is A1.

I tried something like this, but it does not work since I can not define the range correctly.

Dim c
Dim numBlanks
numBlanks = 0
For Each c In Range("ActiveCell.Offset (0,10):ActiveCell.Offset(0,15)")
If c.Value = "" Then
numBlanks = numBlanks + 1
End If
Next c

How To Count Non-empty Cells?
I have like 20 columns. I wonder if there is an Excel formula that will count all the non-empty cells across 20 columns. For example, if there are 10 non-empty cells from row B1 to U1 then enter 10 in the result cell A1 and so on down the number of rows. Or, on the other hand, count all the blank or empty cells from B1 to U1.

Function To Count Numbers Excluding Empty Cells
Is there a function that will count a column of numbers where that will eliminate counting empty cells based on a certain date that will also capture any numbers that is added after refreshing the table from Access? I have attached a spreadsheet for an example. I need to count on the number in column V that equals 13 for the date of 12/22/09.

Count Empty Column Cells For Each Group Of Values
see attached workbook.

I'm attempting to count the empty cells in column C which correspond with the project reference shown in column A. I only want to perform this calculation where the project numbers change (see desired results in column D).

Am struggling with finding a way to define the different range of rows for each project ref within the formula. The full sheet has over 6000 rows and 1500 project refs.

VBA: Don't Want To Graph Empty Cells
I am making a program that several people are going to be inputting data into.

I selected a huge range to ge graphed, so people could simply add their data and it would atomatically appear on the chart. The problem is, that I don't know how much data I am going to get in total. I want to select a range, but only have it appear on the chart if the cells are not empty (I don't want a ton of empty slots on my chart).

This is the basic idea I was trying to work with even though this particular one is not correct. I am trying to set my range only equal to the cells that do not = 0.

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 12").Activate

Set graphdata = (Range("F30:IT31") <> "")

ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Data").Range(graphdata), PlotBy _

The code below checks for color coding and then populates 1 or a 0 in the database for the DSUM formulas

Im trying to optimize the code so that it runs faster. how can i code to skip the rows that do not contain data?

other optimization / best practices that you recommend are appreciated!

Count Of Dates Less Than Current &amp; Corresponding Cells Aren't Blank/Empty
I have a formula '= COUNTIF(A1:A5,"<"&TODAY())' that counts the number of expired dates in one column. I want to include a second condition to this formula that will check if another column of dates are blank then they should not be counted. So if for example a1:a2 have expired dates, and b1:b2 have both got dates then they should be included in the count.

"counta" Count Empty Cells
I am working with output that I copied from SPSS into Excel. I want to use "counta" to count the number of cells in particular rows or columns that have data in them.

I have used "counta" successfully in the past. However, this time it is counting the blank cells as well as those that contain data. When I click on one of the "blank" cells in Excel, nothing shows up in the formula bar.

Why is Excel counting the empty cells?

Count # Of Cells Minus Red Cells VBA
I have tried to figure out how to count all cells in a column and subtract any cells that contain characters with a red font. I'll attach an example. I need code that will work in VBA so that in the case that the column does not contain any cells with red numbers it won't come up with a debug error.

In excel I normally do this manually with this formula: =count("") I normally highlight all cells except the red ones. See attachment for example.

Also, the # of rows is never the same. Some files will be 100 rows, some will be 1000, depending on the store's file we get. so the code would probably have to contain something like .lastactiverow or something.

Count "empty" Cells
I need to compile stats on how many personnel are at work each day. If they are available the cell has no data in it. To do this I am using a VBA program (from your pages) which counts gemptyh cells and it works great, BUT, because the Excel spreadsheet is used by a number of my managers, when they change, erase data in the cells, some of them fill the blanks in with white while others choose the no fill option to create gblank cellsh. This means that if I set the program to count &#8211;4142 no fill, it will only count those, not white cells and vice versa. Can I modify the VBA program to count both? Can I reset gwhiteh cells to no fill? I have pasted the VBA I use below and it would be great if there was a way just to modify it to count white and no fillcc..

Function CountByColor(InRange As Range, _
WhatColorIndex As Integer, _
Optional OfText As Boolean = False) As Long
' This function return the number of cells in InRange with
' a background color, or if OfText is True a font color,
' equal to WhatColorIndex.

Count Blank Cells In VBA
how to create a macro that will count blank cells. I've tried several different variations of a basic 'count cells' macro, but I can't seem to find the right one.

Count Cells By Criteria In VBA
I need to select cells in a specified column (the number of cells will vary each time) and place a count of the selected range in the cell below the selection. Then I need to select cells in a different column and count only the cells with a specific value (in this case, it is a column with financial classes and I only want to count the cells with the value "MC" in it). Again, I would like this count placed in the cell below the selection. I've made some progress. Here's the code I've come up with to select the cells I need to count:

Sub CountSelection()
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select

Make Formula Cells Empty Rather Than Empty Text
Is it possible to make a cell "really" blank/empty based on an If statement? For instance:


Has a value_if_false of "". But Excel interprets this a bit differently than a cell that never had anything typed into it.

So if you have a column full of this formula copied down, and hit <control+down arrow>, you will go straight to the bottom and skip over all rows. Whereas if you have a column with values and empty cells alternating and hit <control+down arrow>, you will only skip the empty cells and go to the next value. Excel treats the conditionally empty cells as if they have a value, when it comes to this type of navigation. This holds even if you copy and paste "Values" for the cells over the formulas.

Is there any way to tell Excel to make the cells truly empty?

Count/Average Number Of Specified Name Where Corresponding Cell Is Not Blank/Empty
sumif problem but it wont work with a countif or average if.

Column A has various names and Column B has amounts, what I need is to count the number of occurances "John Smith" has an amount in Column B. The previous formula I tried was

=sumif(A:A,"John Smith",B:B) but with either countif or averageif it errors too many arguements.

I wasn't sure if Dcount or an array would be suitable but have not used them before.

Pivot tables I'm sure will be the future with this but haven't got to the foot of that mountain yet.

Ingoring Empty Cells When Adding Cells
I want to add across columns, which is not so difficult but I have to "ignore" the blank cells because of the way my formula works.

I'm not sure of the correct mathematical term for the addition I have to do but here is my example:

in this row are the values

1 2 3 4 5

In the row below I want to add the numbers so the result is

1 3 6 10 15

basically, a cell is always adding itself to the result of the sum from the previous cells. This formula I can handle, (=A2+B1 then autofill the results by dragging the formula across the empty cells) but when there are blank cells between values I get the error message! value. How can I write a formula which will ignore the empty cells?

Its length is from 1 to i where i takes dynamic value from varibable.

Now the problem is MyArr(1 to i) has some empty values.

Like say: if i = 5 then
MyArr(1) = "a"
MyArr(2) = ""
MyArr(3) = "b"
MyArr(4) = ""
MyArr(5) = "c"

Referencing Empty Cells?
I have set up a spreadsheet in order to track and calculate the number of students we teach at our organization. It is running prohibitively slow when entering new data. On one sheet each individual session is entered (the school, program, date, number of hours etc.) This is the Session worksheet.

On the next sheet(the Program worksheet) the maximum number of students for each unique program (this is usually a combination of school and the program) is calculated to ensure we are not counting students we teach weekly as new students. This is calculated using a formula:

"Session!G:G" = the unique program name on the Session worksheet.
"Program!A2" = the unique program name on the Program worksheet.
"Session!D:D" = the number of students in that individual session...........

Count One Cell And Then Count 52 Cells Later...

I have a whole lotta data (nearly 600 "pages" of data) that I pasted into Excel. Unfortunately, it's formatted poorly and I'd like to make it nice and purty.

What I started to do was to create a 2nd sheet and then do an "=" and then click the spot with the 'group name' and then another "=" underneath it and then clicked the spot with the 'premium' info, etc.

After a couple of these, I figured that I could simply make a formula to help me out with it. Please see the attached screen captures for some detail on my issue.

Can someone help me create a formula or a way to count a certain cell and then 52 cells underneath it and display it?
