VBA To Fill Blank Cells

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.

[blank cell]
[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 In Blank Cells Referencing Non-Blank Cells Above
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.

Fill Blank Cells Going Up
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

A0-ATBV TRIO DV .018989
C0-ATBV C HN .017676
C0-ATBV C HNAC .0011

43-ATBETRIOHN .014646

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 Blank Cells In Range
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.

Macro To Fill Blank Cells
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.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 Within Column
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

Fill Blank Cells From Cell Above
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")
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

Fill Blank Cells In Column Range
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.

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

Fill Blank Cells With Data On Left
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.

VBA Procedure To Loop Through Sheets And Count Non-blank Cells
I'm trying to write a VBA procedure that will loop through all the worksheets within my Excel workbook one by one (the number of worksheets in the workbook may vary from month to month) and count all the non-blank cells in Row 12.

Fill With Blank Spaces
I have a worksheet where the user input data and i have to make a macro that exports certain cell from the worksheet to a text file without any separating symbol, just like “CONCATENATE and EXPORT”. This is not hard to do, i’ve done it already. But the difficult part is here. My customer wants this macro to be interactive with the user and with an AS400 server that takes the textfile and reads it to find the value of certain variables, something like the opposite process of CONCATENATE. The hard part for me is that if any of the cells concatenated is blank i have to fill the text file with blank spaces.

If the concatenated cells are:
|one| two| three| tour| five|

the exported text to the text file will be:

Find Blank Cell Then Fill Column With Data
I have a userform that I am using to populate a column with data. I have the following code to find the next blank cell on the first row to enter the data from the first textbox in the userform

ActiveSheet.Range("av1").End(xlToLeft).Offset(0, 1).Value = TextBox1

I was then going to populate the rest of the cells in the column by changing the range "A1" to "A2" and so on. The problem I have is that not all of the cells have a compulsory entry so when the end(xlToLeft) function may not always end in the same column and the data will be staggered.

First Entry

Second Entry

What I want to do is find the first blank cell in the first row, as that will have a compulsory entry, and then fill the rest of the cells in the same column. So if the first blank cell is D1 i want to go down then D2,D3,D4 etc.

I can do it going across the rows but cannot figure it out using columns.

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

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.

Fill Cells Based On Corresponding Cells Matching 3 Criteria
I am working on a spreadsheet for a shoe company. I have separate columns for the size, model, color, and item number of a shoe. I get everything except for the item number from a written document; I then have to find the item number for the shoe from another excell document called the Master List.

I was hoping there would be a way to have Excell auto-fill the item number for me. For example, if a shoe is a Red, Athens (the shoe model),size 12, its item number (which can be a pain to find) listed in the row of the Master List is aaabbb. So I want to just enter in the size, color and model number, and have Excell find the item number for me, and fill it in.

I have enclosed an example. Sheet 1 is the sheet I would be working on. Sheet 2 is a portion of the Item master list, which is actually 50k lines.

VBA To Fill Blanks In A Range With A Formula
I am in need of a solution (probably VBA) that can fill a range of cells with a formula IF they are blank. Ideally that range is a named range I can define in Excel. If that is too hard, then a hard coded column I hand-edit the script for is tolerable. Also, ideally, this script auto-executes whenever data changes on the sheet.

You formula I will populate is:
..but a simpler formula can be stubbed in.

NOte that it does have relative references, so the script needs to adhere to normal EXCEL conventions of enumerating cell references.

If the script points to a refernce cell that contains the formula that is uber.
Maybe it should do copy and paste instead of a string replacement in order to leverage EXCEL's referencing?

I'm stuck on this, and this would be VERY useful for many of my sheets to be able to point to a refernce cell containing a formula to fill in.
