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.

Count Of Dates Less Than Current & 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 "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.
Dim Rng As Range
Application.Volatile True ..............................

Returning The Contents Of A Non-empty Cell In A Range Of Empty Cells
I have a long range of cells (U3:AX3), all of which are empty save one. Is there a way to search through the range of cells, and return the contents of the one cell that contains text?

I would do this with a series of nested IF statements if there weren't more than 30 of them!

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.

Color Cells Based On Adjacent Cells Being Empty & Add Text
Im trying to make my life a bit easier, by adding a few macros and formulas to the spreadsheet (Everything was done completely manually before I got here!!!).
What I would like to do is take two columns, which contain a start and end time for work shifts, and colour them GREEN once I have entered a name in the Worker column (Along side the two with the time), and also to fill a cell with a Yes or a No. Im aware of auto conditioning, and Ive tried to have a play to get this to work, but I just cant work it out.
I have posted a link to an image which shows what I want. I hope I've explained it well enough!

Fill Empty Column Cells With Reference To Adjacent Cells
I would like a macro that when run, finds empty cells in a column within the used range and fills them with the same formula in the other cells in the same column but relative to the row.

I have a basic understanding of VBA so if someone can set me on the right track i'll have a go myself as i appreciate this would take a while to write out from scratch.

Lock Empty Cells In Range Based On Other Cells Content
I am trying to lock the unused cells in 32, 2 column by 7 row named ranges, based on whether or not two cells, above each range are equal or less than each other. In other words while one of the cells is less than or equal to the second cell all cells in the range below should be unlocked, as soon as that condition is no longer true the blank cells need to be locked.

I am trying to use this in the Workbook_Sheetcalculate so that the macro will run automatically.

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?

Fill Empty Cells With Cells Above
I have a situation where I am trying to copy to blank cells. All the data is in Column A. In Column A there are Account numbers that are attached to dates in Column B and Transaction Amounts in Columns C & D.

If there are multiple dates with transactions, then Column A does not repeat, but is blank until the next Account number. I am trying to have the Account number fill in the blank cells until the next Account number. I have a macro that runs and picks up the Account number and then copies the data in Columns B - D. However, the blank cells are messing up the macro.

I've got a worksheet from a contact details with some empty cells in it, since not everyone has fax number or POBOX, therefore that particular cell is left empty.

Is there any way to replace or put a "-" dash character or whatever into that empty cell so that the exported CSV file is not left with too many trailing commas ?

I'm looking forward for the reply.

[this CSV is to be use by Exchange Server 2007 Powershell script to import Mail-Contact from a CSV file, that's why not all of the contact entity has the parameter defined]

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...........

AutoFill Above In Empty Cells
how to find the next empty cell and then copy the data down, however; I am trying to do almost the opposite. I need to be able to click on a cell and have that cell's data copied above it until there isn't another empty cell. I will attach a small portion of my worksheet for viewing. Column A has account numbers and Column B has the brand of product. Unfortunately when I imported this data into excel from our software program it lists all the brands and then the account number is listed on the last row of brands.

Copy Row Above In Empty Cells
Suppose I have a column with a lot of different hours in each cell. I have already inserted a blank line between each cell in this columm and know I need to repeat the hour just above the blank cell onto the blank cell,like the example below:

Present worksheet:

00:08:32 8765.987 7654.876
xxxxx blank linexxxxx
01:35:41 123.456 9876.543
xxxxx blank linexxxxx

Future worksheet:

00:08:32 8765.987 7654.876
00:08:32 7654.876 xxxxxxxxx
01:35:41 123.456 9876.543
01:35:41 9876.543 xxxxxxxxx

So, in brief steps, I need to:
1. insert blank lines between each row
2.copy the content of the cell of the first column (just above the blank line) to the cell just below it, in order to repeat the time
3.copy the content of the cell of the third column (just above the blank line) to the cell in column 2 (on the blank cell in column 2 of the blank line just created)

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

=IF(S7="","",S7) - Will not produce 0 if the cell is blank, just leaves it blank.

Count One Cell And Then Count 52 Cells Later...
I'm a newbie to these forums, but I had a question that I couldn't find an answer to in the search feature. So, I joined and here I go....

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?

Returning First And Last Non-empty Cells Of Column
Ok, so I have a column of data in 24hr time format over a 24hr period from noon thru midnight and back to noon again. It has been necessary to make some of the cells in the column blank, and I am having difficulty extracting the first and last non-blank entries of the column (basically I want the earliest and latest time in that specific 24hr period). The time data is in order, so for example, some of the first values in the column are 14:30, 21:10, and 22:40, while some of the last values in the column are 02:20, 05:50, and 11:00, therefore the values I require are 14:30 and 11:00.

Any help that anyone can give on this matter would be greatly appreciated, but until then I guess I will keep plodding through the help sites and playing with formula until I spontaneously combust.

i did a select to make sure it was selecting the whole range I want and it works fine:

Range(Cells(iCurrentRow, iFirstDataColumn), Cells(iCurrentRow, iTotalCol)).Select
Inside my range I can have cells with 0s in them and cells with nothing in them. What I would like my if statement to do is return true ONLY when ALL cells have nothing in them. At the moment, even if I have 0's in some cells, it's returning false.

Insert Formula In Empty Cells

Next i

and now I need formulas in columns B and I in those blank rows. I'm happy to roll it in to the above piece of code, or put it in after.

I don't think I can use LastRow to define my range and replace blanks with formula because of the blank rows. I would need more of a "LastRow with only one blank in between populated rows" if such a thing exists.

The formulas will be ="*"&H3&" DWG "&G3 for cell B2 and =I3 for cell I2.
