# Excel 2010 :: Autofill Entering Data Against Blank Cells

Jan 23, 2014

In earlier versions if I used the double clicked the autofill handle it would only fill down to the next adjacent cell containing data. Now it fills down to the bottom of all the data regardless of whether there is a blank cell or not e.g

X X X Z
X X X Z
X X X Z
X X
X X X

Now this happens

X X X Z
X X X Z
X X X Z
X X ...Z
X X X Z

How can I stop this as I need to enter different data in the next section?

## Excel 2010 :: SUMPRODUCT Answer To Return Blank When No Data In Specific Cells

May 12, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 and I am trying to average the amount of days in a month to a daily average per person in my worksheet.

Total sales per person
A5 = 10 - This is the Grand total per person for column A
A6 =4
A7=6

Daily average per person
C5=2.6 - Average for all persons here
C6=2.0
C7=3.0

The formula I am using is:

=(SUMPRODUCT(\$A\$6:\$A\$15,C6:C15))/\$A5

Which gives me an answer of 2.6 in cell C5 as shown above which is what I am wanting.

Please note that my cell range for my staff goes from 6-15 for both Column A and C where the other cells are blank in both columns.

My question is, If I was to clear all the data in both Columns A6:A15 and C:6:C15, cell C5 would return to a #VALUE. How to I change the formula so that if the cells were Blank, cell C5 would also be blank until I enter data for each person again?

## Excel 2010 :: Color Fill A Range Of Cells If Specific Cells Not Blank

Feb 7, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 and basically i am trying to fill a range of cell with a green color if any value was enter in a specific cells. Example: I would like to fill range: A10:c13 with a green color (regardless of the cells content in this range) if a value was entered in cell C10 or C11 or C12 or C13.

I've tried conditional formatting but unfortunately I'll have to apply formatting for every cell and for a range of over hundred cells is not efficient.

## Excel 2010 :: Average Non-Blank Or Zero Cells

Sep 10, 2012

I have a sequence of 40 columns of data, representing 10 weeks worth of events with 4 values per week

I need to average the first pair for each week, ignoring zeros and blanks, and also separately the 2nd pair of cells, across the whole 40 columns

I am trying to come up with a neater solution which takes into account the zeros, at the moment I have the following which does not, for row 34

=IF(\$AR34>0,ROUND(AVERAGE(D34:E34,H34:I34,L34:M34,P34:Q34,T34:U34,
X34:Y34,AB34:AC34,AF34:AG34,AJ34:AK34,AN34:AO34)*2,2),0)

I could use SUM, COUNT COUNTIF etc but its gonna get messy

## Excel 2010 :: Auto Summary From Non-Blank Cells

Aug 21, 2012

I have created a comparison sheet and compares my old one from last week to the new one I create for this week.
It populates cells with the differences and shows me the data from the new sheet. But since my they are so massive A5:AZ20,000 I want to create an auto summary or something.

Column A has each properties Unique Identifier And the rest is various info for the property. I would like it to return my unique ID and then the columns with new data that has showed up from the comparison some are text and some are numbers.

Also I am using Excel 2010.

## Excel 2010 :: Opens To Blank Row After Last Row Of Data?

Mar 31, 2014

When I had Excel 2010 and now with Excel 2013, whenever I open a workbook, it opens and displays to the row AFTER the last row of data. (So, if my last row of data is 38205, it will open starting at row 38206...hence I see no data until I hit Ctrl+Home). I have not found anything about this on the internet and I cannot find a setting. I need Excel to open to A1 so I don't freak out every time I open a workbook and see no data.

## Excel 2010 :: Autofill Ever Changing Range?

Excel 2010

I have this code in a macro, the range will change as more data is added. so that I dont have to keep changing the range. How can I have this code autofill from the activecell to the last cell that has data in column M.

ActiveCell.Range("A1:A50000").Select

## Excel 2010 :: Transposing Data With Blank Rows In Columns

Feb 10, 2014

We utilize large data sheets that can be as large as 300K in rows and 10 to 15 columns wide. Because of how we receive the data, we are forced to manipulate things so that all matching data for a record ends up on a single row. (e.g. Record#, Document Type, Husband Name, Wife Name, Wife Maiden Name, Etc.)

Right now here's how the data is received:

a
a
a
b
b
c
c
c
c
d
d
d
e
e
e
e

Using two vba scripts, we first separate the data with row spaces between the unique data as follows:

a
a
a

b
b

c
c
c
c

Then with another script, we transpose the data as follows:

a a a
b b
c c c c
d d d
e e e e

When we transpose the data, the end result starts at the top of the page and go down eliminating the original blank rows. Not a huge issue but I would like to be able to maintain the original data format of the rows so that the data matches the original sheet line for line. The end result would give me the data as follows...

a a a
b b
c c c c
d d d
e e e e e

where the vertical gaps between the letters matches the original rows. Like I said, not a huge issue since we can rejoin the transposed data to the original data fairly easily. But it would be nice if we could end up with the above format for speed sake.

The two scripts we use, one-to insert the rows and two-to transpose, take a very long time to run with the transpose script taking the longest by far. On a 30K row sheet, it will take on our systems around 30 minutes to transpose and about 15 minutes to insert rows. Because we have several columns that need to be transposed, a 30K row sheet will take at least 2 hours to complete. A 300K row sheet, that will take 10 to 15 hours to complete.

Is there any way to speed up the scripts either by upgrading to a faster CPU and or writing the scripts to preform faster?

My preferred solution would be to write (have) a formula to preform the transposition that gives me the results as noted above since formula's run so much faster than vba. Is this possible? I have tried all kinds of formulas and can not come close and of course the straight transpose function does not give me the solution I need as noted above.

I have enclosed an excel 2010 spreadsheet with 10K rows of data in rows along with the scripts I use (nothing sensitive here). The tabs at the bottom shows you the data before I transpose, then the data after it has been transposed . To speed up the scripts, I have stripped away the all the rest of the data from the original sheet except just what I need to transpose at one time. Once that is completed, we then re-join the transposed data with the original sheet. The six digit number you see to the far left of the data is the record ID number from the original data. We use this to rejoin the transposed data with the original data so that we know everything is back where it should be. (Note: The insert rows script is run on the original data and not the data you see on the enclosed spreadsheet. That is the only way we can generate unique rows with matching ID numbers. We arrive at this by taking the original data, concatenate the record ID with the column we want to transpose and add a # between the two so that we can break things back apart after the transposition using the text to column function using the # as the separator.)

The sheet I have attached is in the 2010 Macro Enabled format...(xlsm format). We use the xlsb (binary) format for the data to reduce the file size as our normal procedure and run the macros from inside that format. Changing from the xlsx to xlsb format did seem to speed up the scripts a bit and greatly improved the file performance as a whole e.g. saving and loading.

One thing I have done to speed up the scripts is to strip all the data away that is not needed for the transposition. That did work but only a marginal amount.

We are using windows 8.0 with 4G memory and your basic processor speed...e.g. nothing fancy.....just your basic stock computer. Nothing else unusual is installed or running on the computer or at the time the scripts are running.

For those of you that process large sheets, how much of a performance upgrade will we see in processing our scripts by either upgrading memory to 8G (or more or much more) and or getting a faster processor? Or have we reached the maximum script speed already? Or is this a limit to Excel.

One other issue to note: As I stated above, on the 30K row sheets, not a super problem with about 2 hours needed to run the scripts on all the data on the sheet. But on the 300K row sheets, it can take 12 or more hours to run and there are times when things 'lock up' running the scripts on sheets this size.

## Autofill Blank Cells

Jul 8, 2009

I have a column of names with some spaces e.g. A1: BROWN, A2:empty, A3:empty, A4:SMITH, A5: empty, A6:JONES etc. All the empty cells have the same name as the one above i.e. A2 and A3 should also read "BROWN". A5 should read "SMITH" and so on down the column. Is there away to create a formula that does this automatically. I've tried a simple if command in a duplicate column which looks at the first column and tests for a blank - if it finds one it enters the name from the cell above - but this only works once and some of the empty spaces need to be filled more than once e.g. A2 & A3 above.

## Excel 2010 :: Autofill Date Into Headers Of Column

Feb 19, 2014

I have been struggling to find where my code is throwing up an error 1004 on the last line of the below code. I have a number of tables which will update automatically from Pivot tables on another sheet.

So the first part of the code is adding in the new column and then I want to autofill the date into the headers of the column which I thought the below would do, but I just don't understand why I keep getting the error. My data is dynamic as it will grow month by month which is why I am using R1C1 referencing.

Sheets("PNN Table").Cells(9, 16384).Select
ActiveCell.End(xlToLeft).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -2).Select
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range(Selection, Selection.Offset(0, 1))

## Excel 2010 :: Autofill Type Mismatch Error

Mar 7, 2014

I'm using Excel 2010 and I wrote the code below to autofill a range that feeds a chart on the worksheet "Dashboard." Essentially, the user selects criteria on the Dashboard and clicks the "Submit" button, which causes an advanced filter to copy the data that matches the criteria into the range Sheets("HiddenSheet").Range("A2:H"). I need the code below to autofill the formulas in I3:Q3 in I:Q until the last row in A:H, but I keep getting a "Type Mismatch" error on the bolded line below.

One note - Columns K:Q contain formulas that feed off of Column C and into Column J - that's why the autofill range is different than the chart SetSourceData range.

Sub TimelineControl()
Dim Timeline As Chart
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim rngforTimeline As Range
Dim LastAxis As Integer
Dim LastA As Long

## Entering Data In 1st Blank Cell In Specific Row

Mar 5, 2014

I have created a form where a date and remark is added every few days. I am using Phone Number as the base of VLookup. I want a code so that the date and remark which is entered in a Text Box, is stored in the first available blank cell pertaining to that employee. I want the first date and remark to be under "Date 1" and "Remark 1".

Thereafter, if another remark is subsequently added for that employee, the form would ask to enter his phone number to identify which employee the remark pertains to. Then the Text Box where remark is entered should be stored under "Remark 1" if there has been no remark before, "Remark 2" if "Remark 1" already exists, "Remark 3" if "Remark 2" already exists and so on.

I do not want to enter it in a new row. I want to enter the remark in the next blank cell of the row which matches the employee Phone Number.

## Excel 2010 :: Copying 3 Rows Of Formula And Using Autofill To Only Add 1 Each Time When Copied Down?

Sep 2, 2013

I am using Windows 7, with Excel 2010.

I have one Worksheet Short Course - PB's Which contains all swimmer information and searches through all previous swims and reports back the swimmers current Personal best times (PB)

I am creating a work sheet to calculate percentage increases over a set date period. I have managed the calculations but can not get the autofill to function as I was hoping.

In my short course sheet 1 Row = a Swimmer and there details

In my new sheet, I have 3 rows for the same swimmer

Row 1= Swimmer and PB's before a set date
Row 2 = Swimmer and PB's After set date and upto Todays date
Row 3 = Percentage calculation of difference between the two rows to enable track performance increase

I have all of this working and in place and want to copy the formula's down now to cover all swimmers in the club.

When I copy the 3 lines down, Autofill adds 3 to the row reference for the first line and I just want it to add 1.

ROW3) =IF('Short Course - PB''S'!A3="","",'Short Course - PB''S'!A3)
ROW4) =A3
ROW5) = A3

## Mark Cells For Entering Data

Oct 4, 2007

Can I add something to a cell and have it so it does not print?

I need to mark certian cells to have data filled in, in those cells. However if data is not put in those cells I need them to be blank when printed.

Example:
I can put text in B7:
Enter Name Here

Then the user knows to put the name in that spot. If there is no name to be entered then I want to be sure that is not printed when I print the list.

Is any of this a possibility without putting 33 different labels on the page, which is one way. Or 33 different comments on the page, another way.
