Remove Empty Cells Automatically Per Row?

Oct 2, 2013

I'm needing to import a .csv into another software and it needs the fields formatted a specific way.

The spreadsheet I've been given has columns for different departments and an X to denote if they fall under it. As an example.


Joe Bloggs

Bob Smith

John Doe

For the import into this software it needs the fields like this, the name in the cell has to be exactly the same as the column header.

Is there an easy formula to scan the row, if an X is found substitute the X for the column header text and if no X in a cell delete it and shift all cells to the left within the row ?

The substitution is quite easy and I've played around with lookup or if statements to quite easily do that but the bit I'm having trouble sorting is removing any unnecessary cells in that row so only cells with data are listed in the row.

Remove Empty Cells From Combobox In Userform

Oct 1, 2003

it is possible to hide empty cells when using a ComboBox in a UserForm?

I have named the range from where I select my data and used the RowSource (ComboBox Properties window) to determine the selection. This works perfectly but I have many lines that are empty and I would like to know if they can be hide, or not selected, in the combobox.

Copy Cells To Empty Column Each Time And Remove Blanks

Oct 24, 2008

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.

VBA Code To Remove Value Of Cells In Column B If Value In Column A Is Empty?

Sep 26, 2013

I need to write a VBA code to remove the value of the cells in column B if the value in column A is empty. In my excel sheet, the user will paste hyperlinks in column B. If any link does not meet certain conditions, the cell in the same row in column A will be empty.

I want to have a change event so that after pasting links, it automatically deletes the links from the cells in column B if the cell in column A is empty

Remove Empty Row Upon Close

Jan 26, 2013

How would the attached file code be ammended to remove a blank row and then move all remaining rows below up one ?

Example: Open the attached file (Transport Log version 1). If you double-click in cell "X10" (for patient Abe Lincoln), the data for row 10 will be removed and written to Sheet #2. Closing the file and reopening, row 10 is empty with other rows below remaining. The goal is to move the data in rows 11 and 12 (and any subsequent rows that may be entered below those) up one row.

The above method would be an indication to users making subsequent entries to always use the first empty row below all existing data.

MyArr(3) = "b"
MyArr(4) = ""
MyArr(5) = "c"

Make Formula Cells Empty Rather Than Empty Text

Apr 17, 2008

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?

Remove Empty Table Rows Before Pasting New Data?

Jan 31, 2014

I have a table into which I paste values to ColumnA. The other columns have formulas. The number of values to be pasted varies. When the number being pasted this time is less than the number pasted last time, empty rows remain above the valid data after sorting, which is undesirable. I want to get rid of those rows just before (or after?) pasting the new values. The way I see it is I want to delete all but the first data row of the table so the formulas remain untouched in the first row. Then, as new values are pasted the formulas replicate automatically.

Sample file is attached : Sample.xlsm‚Äé

This code below is pasted from Automatically Add Date, Time or Date & Time and uses the Worksheet Change Event

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A2:A100")) Is Nothing Then
With Target(1, 2)
.Value = Date
End With
End If
End Sub

It automatically enters today's date into the corresponding B cell. How do I code it so that the date is automatically removed when & if I delete the corresponding A cell?

Automatically Remove Cell Colors

Oct 30, 2006

i am using a set of VB codes that was kindly provided by "dr". Please refer to the link below.

Highlight-Select Start Date To End Date

However, I am facing problems on how to delete or unfill the cells that are "coloured and filled with booking reference name" (i.e. being booked by the user).

In another words, currently, once a booking is made, the blank slots would be coloured to red and would reflect the customer name in those slots (with the use of dr's VB codes).

Comes the next day, if that booking needs to be cancelled, would the user be able to "delete" that booking that was made (i.e. uncolour that slot plus remove the customer name) without having to automatically go unfill the cells and delete the text in the cells?

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Empty Cells Based On Full Cells?

Nov 17, 2011

Working in Excel 2007. I am using excel for a data log (basically) and want it to format all empty cells in a row yellow if there is data in column A

Basically, If i have a value in A2, I want any empty cell between B2-G2 to be filled in yellow (as an idicator to the inputter that the cell needs to be completed).

there is already conditional formatting on these cells, which i want to maintain for the non-empty cells. I also have "0" as a value, so I couldn't use the basic conditional formatting setting it =0, it highlighted cells with $0.00, which i do not want.

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. Iím aware of auto conditioning, and Iíve tried to have a play to get this to work, but I just canít work it out.
I have posted a link to an image which shows what I want. I hope I've explained it well enough!
