# Fill In Blank Cells Referencing Non-Blank Cells Above

Apr 17, 2008

I have sporadic cell values in a column. I will be describing the lamen logic I use to fill in these blanks manually. Find the first nonblank cell in the column, then look for the next nonblank cell in the column. I count the number of blank cells in between. If even # of blank cells, then I give the first half of the blanks the value of the first nonblank cell and the second half of the blank cells the value of the next nonblanck. If odd # of blank cells, then I do the same with the exception that the odd cell that falls in the middle will be randomly designated the value of the either first or second nonblank cell.

## Referencing Blank Cells

Jun 8, 2009

I would like a formula that checks for blank cells only between C1:C10 and E1:E10 and then insert the first and last names of the person associated with these blank cells (which are located in A1:10 and B1:B10) on another worksheet, which for the sake of argument can be called 'sheet2'.

## Referencing Non-blank Cells

May 22, 2006

Say I have a column with cell values 4, 0, 0, 5, 0 , 0, 0, 2, 0, 3

What I am trying to do is have in the next column a formula which returns
the number adjacent to it multiplied by the number of blanks between it and
the next non-blank cell.

So, for the example above, the output would be 8, 0, 0, 15, 0, 0, 0, 2 etc

## 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.

## Distinguishing Between Blank Cells And 0 When Referencing

Dec 17, 2012

Suppose I have a cell containing the formula:

Code:
=INDIRECT("'"&B\$3&"'!J"&ROW(\$J11))

Which pulls data in from another sheet in the workbook. If the referenced cell is empty, this has value 0.

I'd like to then include this cell in the calculation of an average, ignoring it if the cell it pulls from is empty but including it if that cell contains 0.

## Sumif Is Referencing Blank Cells And Providing A Value

Oct 14, 2009

How do I get 'SUMIF' to ignore blank cells? sumif(a1:a10,h1,b1:b10) - then fill down

a= ID number
h1 = ID number
b= cost info

eg 'matt' in 'h' is finding 'matt' in 'a' and reporting on the cost info against that name in 'b', but in the middle of the list a blank is matching a blank and returning a subtotal which is in the cost column. I want to put sumif(a1:a10<>"",h1, b1:b10) but this doesnt work!

## How To Fill Blank Cells

Aug 12, 2013

I have a workbook with 15000+ Isometric drawing nos. in column A and and joint nos. in Column B. I want to fill the blank cells with the isometric drawing no.s for the corresponding joint nos. A sample worksheet is attached.

## VBA To Fill Blank Cells

Jul 10, 2007

I have two columns with data (length of column B represents total length of database.) Column A only has some blank cells.

I need to fill Column A blanks with the contents of cell above.

Monday
Tuesday
[blank cell]
Wednesday
Thursday
[blank cell]
[blank cell]
***end of column B

Therefore VBA to place Tuesday into blank and Thursday into the two blanks before bottom of the range of Column B.

Using record macro doesnt give me go to first blank etc.

something like

Start column A2 to End
Find first blank, copy active cell -1
Next blank cell. (ins some cases it will copy the name it has just filled into cell above.
Finish at last cell in Comumn B

## Fill Blank Cells Going Up

Apr 3, 2008

Is there any way to fill blank cells going up instead of down, other than having to go to each section and dragging the fill handle. I'm looking at a list of data that has a summ code at the bottom of each section of data. I need to fill the blank cells above the summ code for each section.

For example:

D2-NHL RACE .001515
D2-SERVICE CODETO1515

NHSUMM CODETO1515
A0-ATBV TRIO DV .018989
A0-SERVICE CODETO8989
C0-ATBV C HN .017676
C0-ATBV C HNAC .0011
C0-SERVICE CODETO7777

43-ATBETRIOHN .014646
43-ATBETRIOHNAH .0011
43-SERVICE CODETO4747
45-ATBECMBDVRHN .0133
45-ATBECMBDVRHN0 .0033
45-SERVICE CODETO66
NVSUMM CODETO6346963468

Everything above NV needs to be filled with NV and everything aboveNH needs to be filled with NH. There are over 13000 lines of data. How do I accomplish assigning or filling the related summ codes in the blank cells in between?

## Fill In Blank Cells In A Range

Aug 21, 2013

I would like to get some code that will fill blanks in a range.

I have not used the board facilities properly. In the following table I need each blank cell in column B to be filled with the text from the preceding cell that has text in it.

i.e. B2 to be populated with "text1". Cells B4:B6 to be populated with "text2".

The code needs to know that row 9 is the last row to populate.

A
B

1
text1

## Macro To Fill Blank Cells

Nov 29, 2006

I wonder if soeone could change the following macro so that the bottomcell
is set to be as far down as there is content in Column "A". As it stands if I fill in blank cells in Column "C" and the last cell with data is say C10 it does just this. But if the actual last row with data in column "A" is A14 then cells C11, C12, C13, and C14 are ignored. C11, C12, C13, and C14 should be the same as C10 above them.

Sub FillBlankCells()
Dim topcell As Range, bottomcell As Range
Set topcell = Cells(1, ActiveCell.Column)
Set bottomcell = Cells(16384, ActiveCell.Column)
If IsEmpty(topcell) Then Set topcell = topcell.End(xlDown)
If IsEmpty(bottomcell) Then Set bottomcell = bottomcell.End(xlUp).Offset
Range(topcell, bottomcell).Select
Selection.SpecialCells(xlBlanks).Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=R[-1]C"
End Sub

Other macros recognize the actual last row.... but have issues with columns formatted as Text. The macro above doesn't create problems with columns formatted as "Text".

## Fill Blank Cells From Cell Above

Nov 30, 2006

I am trying to fill down data in columns A:C but only if there is data in column D. I have butchered VBA into this working bit but the fill down stops too early.

Sub fillall()
Set x = Worksheets("Paste"). Range("A3", "c3")
Do
Range(x, x.End(xlDown).Offset(-1, 0)).filldown
Set x = Range(x.End(xlDown), x.End(xlDown).Offset(0, 2))
Loop Until x.End(xlDown).Offset(0, 3) = 0
End Sub

## Fill Blank Cells In Range

Dec 7, 2006

I have a set of integers in the ranges of: B11 to B40, C11 to C40, D11 to D40.

Occasionally the values in the cells are deleted and thus left as a "blank" cell.

I wish to create a macro that will find these blank cells in these ranges and replace them with a simple 0.

## Fill Blank Cells Within Column

Oct 8, 2007

If A1 has a value of ABC,
A2-A5 are blank
A6 has a value of DEF
A7-A10 are blank.
Is there a formula that will fill A2-A5 with ABC,
look at the value of A6 and see that it is different from A1-A5,
or not blank,
change the fill value to the new value, A6,
then fill down the value of A6 into A7-A10
instead of manually using the fill handle?

## VBA To Fill Empty Cells Until The 1st Completely Blank Row?

Feb 1, 2014

I am looking for code that fills empty cells found in columns A-F by copying and pasting the value from the cell of the previous row (of the same column) ignoring columns G onwards. The copying/ pasting then should stop when it encounters its first completely blank row.

## Fill In Blank Cells After Grouping Subtotal

I just did a Group Subtotal. How do I fill all the blank cells in a column with the information in the cell above it without going to every individual cell?

## Fill Blank Cells In A Column With Preceding Value

Feb 28, 2013

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.

A
B

41055182
905182

41054750
905182

[Code] ........

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"

## Fill Blank Cells With Data On Left

Dec 14, 2007

I have a macro that creates mutiple, though varing numbers of, columns. Once the columns are created, a blank column is set up to the right of them. When the data is ideal, only one cell in each row created by the populated columns will have data in it. So lets say that in this example, the macro created 23 columns of data. A1 is blank, B1 is Widget, and C1 through the end are also blank. I need a macro that will look at the rows and find the populated column and copy that string of data to the blank 24th column (to the right) created after the poulated columns. So X1 (the 24th column) will have Widget placed in it.

Now I need it to do one other thing. In another example, let say there are 5 columns created this time. In the third row, there is data in A3 and D3. If they are the equal to each other (A3 value being 143256 and D3 value being 143256), then I need the 6th column created to have 143256 placed in it. However, if the data differs ( A3 value being 143255 and D3 value being 143288) then I need the word "Scrap" to appear in the sixth column.

## Fill Blank Cells In Column Range

May 7, 2008

How do I make this to work with dynamic range instead running for complete column? For example: Run this code until last active cell in Column A. Column A will always has value so if cell A25 is last active cell in range then this code should stop executing for column R25. So execution of this code would depend on active cell in column A.

Columns("R:R").Select
Dim Cell As Range
For Each Cell In Selection.Cells
If Cell.Value = True Then ' if true do nothing
Cell.Value = ""
ElseIf Cell.Value = False Then ' if false change to Null
Cell.Value = "Null"
End If
Next

## Fill In Blank Cells If Adjacent Cell Has Value Then Do For Next Set Of Data

Feb 19, 2014

I'm trying every conceivable angle I can think of in vba and coming up empty. What I have is a spreadsheet similar to this:

Column A Column B

1. 1234567
2. 2345678
3. 3456789
4. 4567890 A0001
5.
6. 9876543
7. 9876543
8. 9876543
9. 1234578
10. 3456789 A0002

What I would like to do is to fill in B1:B3 with A0001 and B6:B9 with A0002. The number of rows in each set of data will vary, but the identifier (A000X) will always be located in the row in column B adjacent to the last entry for that set of data in column A and there will always be empty cells between data sets. The number of data sets will also vary.

## Fill All Blank Cells Above Subtotaled Reference Cell

Jan 3, 2012

Any other way of subtotaling data. I am an inventory analyst and do monthly/quarterly totals and averages of inventory used, and need a quick way to fill the blank cells with the part # that is below them, as shown below. I need the part #'s so I can then use CONCATENATE() and pull data from multiple time periods so the part #/year will match up down the page.

## Macro To Fill Blank Cells With Data In Above Cell

Dec 10, 2013

I have a small challenge, where I am trying to fill blank cells with the data from the last populated cell above.

However, I need it to be able to automatically recognise when a manual entry has beed actioned down the column and recalculate for below that cell with the new data.

The data in the cell is selected from a drop down. I want it to populate all the cells below, until the next drop down is selected. And automatically repopulate them all when it is selected.

E.g. Cell C8 has the value "DATA" selected, and everything below is autofilled with "DATA", but when I select cell C12 with different drop down list value "VALUE", all the cells below stay as "DATA" because they are obviously no longer blank.

What I need if C9 - C11 to remain filled with 'DATA" and from C13 to auto fill with the newly selected value "VALUE".

Need this to happen for as many rows and data selections from the drop down as needed (endless).

I have used:

Code:
Sub FillEmpty() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Application.Calculation = xlManual Dim cell As Range For Each cell In Intersect(Selection, _ ActiveSheet.UsedRange) If Trim(cell) = "" And cell.Row > 1 Then cell.NumberFormat = cell.Offset(-1, 0).NumberFormat cell.Value = cell.Offset(-1, 0).Value End If Next cell Application.Calculation = xlAutomatic 'xlCalculationAutomatic Application.ScreenUpdating = False End Sub

which does the auto fill, but won't change the cells below once one of them has been updated.

Info:

Drop down list has 31 possible selections at the moment

Starts at Cell C8

Needs to be flexible enough to add an indeterminate number of rows, and additional items to the drop down selection.

## Ignore Blank Cells And Truly Blank Cells In Named Range?

Jan 13, 2014

Ok so my named range looks like this:

[Code]....

However, I want to ignore the "" cells and the truly blank cells... However, I think all of them will have "" since I have this formula in all of the ones I'm putting in the range:

[Code]....

How do I go about getting these results into a named range so I can use it on validation since validation only seems to ignore truly blank cells and not the "" ones.

## Leaving Blank Cells Blank In Dragging Formula Combining Different Formulas In One Cell?

Aug 2, 2014

I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.

## Count Blank Cells Within A Range Not Including Fully Blank Rows

Jul 15, 2008

I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

But I dont want it to count the cells if the entire row, within that cell, i.e. C6:AD6, is blank.

It should only count the blank cells within a row if there has been some data entered on that row..provided it has been entered within the specified range.

## IF Statement To Leave Cell Blank If Multiple Cells Are All Blank?

I am looking for an IF statement that would leave a balance cell blank if both the revenue and expense cells are blank, otherwise a formula would be calculated.

## How To Populate Blank Cells With Sequence Until Non Blank Cell Is Encountered

Mar 22, 2014

I presume this is fairly simple to do, since it's certainly easy enough to do manually by filling in a couple of rows and dragging them down, but I need it to be performed in a macro that I can run before other macros run.

What I need specifically is for the macro to go to G1 and insert the number .01... Then go to G2 and insert .02... Then G3 and insert .03... And repeat this until it finds the first non-blank cell ( row number this occurs at varies), at which point it ends and does nothing to that populated cell or any other cell in the column thereafter (including other blanks farther down).

This all needs to be done in Arial, 10pt, white.

## Imported Data Creates Blank Cells That Aren't Really Blank

Feb 21, 2006

Here's what I'm attempting to do: For each column, X,Y, Z, I am attempting
to count nonblanks. However, the data was imported from Access and Oracle,
and Excel treats what appear to be blank cells as nonblanks. I've tested
this theory by highlighting a couple of "blank" cells and deleting them, and
my count changes. So, can I get Excel to put a value into my "blank" cells,
so then I could filter it out, or create a formula that would only count
dates in my columns (which is what I'm after).

This is what I'm looking at:

A B C
1 2/4/2006 2/6/2006 ("blank")
2 ("blank") 12/13/2005 1/7/2006
3 2/20/2006 1/15/2006 ("blank")

In each column if I use a COUNTA I'll get a total of 3, instead of 2 for A,
3 for B and 1 for C.

## List - Filling In Each Blank Cells With Value Contained In First Non-blank Cell Above It

Feb 27, 2013

I have a list that looks something like this:

Column B

Row 4 Item 1
Row 5 Item 2
Row 6
Row 7
Row 8 Item 3
Row 9
Row 10 Item 4
Row 11
Row 12
Row 13
Row 14 Item 5

The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"

I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.
