Copying Only Rows With Data In First Column - Skipping Rows With Blank First Column

May 12, 2014

I have 2 columns of data E and F. Column E has 11 different words that randomly repeat, Column F has 10 years of dates, about 1,000 entries (10/11/12 format). Both columns values come from formulas.

I am trying to copy cells E & F to columns K & L starting in row 2 only if there is is data in column E (one of the 11 words) and skipping all others rows. Both the E & F values of tthe row must be copied together, i.e if text is in E45, then copy E45 and F45 into column K and L starting with K2 & L2. This is a task which will be repeated multiple times as data is replaced in columns A-D.

Pulling Rows From Other Sheet - Skipping Over Rows If Column Is Blank

Jan 17, 2014

I am working in the attached spreadsheet. For anyone who does not wish to open the link, let's say these sheets are titled 'Sheet1' and 'Sheet2'.

Sheet2 looks like this:

Year Cat Name
2013 4 Sal
2013 4 Pat
2013 3 Pat


Now, how may I pull this data into a summary sheet (Sheet1) that skips over any instances where column A ("Year") is blank so it looks like this:

Year Cat Name
2013 4 Sal
2013 4 Pat
2013 3 Pat
2013 2 Pat
2013 5 Bob


Note: All columns are the EXACT same across each sheet(including Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3), if that extra piece of information works.

PS It is fine if, in order for a formula to work, I need to copy and paste the formula for the length of rows per each Sheet to consolidate.


So, in my industry, any summary-level data (shown on Sheet1) must have a linked reference to a particular sheet (Sheet2, Sheet3, etc.) so the user knows where the raw data came from. This is to ensure increased accuracy of data and minimize human error (like, if for example, I accidentally didn't copy and paste all the rows correctly).

I have uploaded the actual sheet to show what the data actually look like. I am trying to pull in 2013 data into my "Summary Page" and would like to have all the data linked to the '2013' sheet but skip any blank rows.

Here is my failed formula:

Getting Rows To Columns Macro Skipping Blank Rows

Dec 28, 2011

I have this in Column A, with about 120 entries:

Company 1
Contact 1
Address 1
City, ST, ZIP 1
Phone 1
Fax 1

Company 2
Contact 2
Address 2
City, ST, ZIP 2
Phone 2
Fax 2

Company 3
Contact 3
Address 3
City, ST, ZIP 3
Phone 3
Fax 3

I want this:

Company 1 Address 1 City, ST, ZIP 1 Phone 1 Fax 1
Company 2 Address 2 City, ST, ZIP 2 Phone 2 Fax 2
Company 3 Address 3 City, ST, ZIP 3 Phone 3 Fax 3

all the way down.

I can't figure out how to record the macro to tell it to then skip the blank line, collect the next set of data, and put it in the next row. I can do it for two, but then it just replaces the first two with the next two and I lose data.

Excel 2013 :: Averaging Rows Of Data Within Larger Blocks Of Datasets - Skipping Rows

Jul 16, 2014

I am trying to average different rows and columns within a larger block data set in a series. This data is from a 96-well absorbance microplate reader experiment. I only mention this to describe the raw data output I am dealing with.

Each set of data is in a 12 x 8 block with the next block below it with one blank row between. So I have a block of data contained between A1->L1->L8. The next block is contained between A10->L10->L17. This continues for a total of 28 blocks.

I want to take averages from rows or columns from each block and autofill them into a single column. So for example I'll need =Average(A1-C1) with =Average(A10-C10) below it and so on and so forth. My problem is that if I try to autofill from this already started column the third row will take the average of A2-C2 instead of A19-C19.

Is there a formula/script for me to skip the correct number of rows to the next data block?

I have attached my spreadsheet to this thread. I am using Excel 2013

Drag Copying Formula Down While Skipping Cells In Adjacent Reference Column?

Feb 2, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with temperature data, all in one column (D), that was recorded every 10 minutes for several months. In two adjacent columns (E & F), I would like to record the daily max and min temperatures. I can manually do this with MAX and MIN formulas in column E and F respectively, MAX(D1:D144). But when I copy this formula to the next row, I get MAX(D2:D145) when what I really want is MAX(D145:D288)....and so on...

Auto Copying Column Formulas To New Rows

Feb 14, 2014

I'm working on a spreadsheet that tracks project accepted and done over a course of time. I am expecting the data to eventually reach the thousands in a year's time. I have several formulas in specific columns that I need to replicate as the user enters new data into the next row.

While it is easy to copy paste the formulas from the cells above, we are looking to save time by having the sheet do this automatically which also prevents the user from accidentally deleting/modifying the said formulas. I am also looking to save file size which is why I am considering doing this in VB. An example of a formula that I need to move down into the next column is:


I am new to VB but would like to gain some understanding on how this works.

Copying Cell Contents From One Column To Multiple Rows

Mar 20, 2014

I'm sure there is an easier way than copying and pasting each individual cell from one spreadsheet to another. Is there a way I can define a batch of cells (city, state, phone #) and copy them into the other spreadsheet so I don't have to do each cell individually?

Here is a picture to show what exactly I am trying to do.


Also, the cells that belong in the same column and row on one spreadsheet are equal distance from each other throughout the other spreadsheet that has all the info in 1 column.

I am using MS Excel 2007 and I am trying to create a macro which will copy column E and paste the data in column E to the bottom of column D. However each week the amount of rows in these column with vary, they will always be the same amount of rows in column E as in column D but there may be 20 rows one week and a 100 rows the next.

The formula I currently have is below but this will only work for a specified number of rows. How I could change this to work for any number of rows?

Delete Rows :: Where The Corresponding Entry In Column Is Blank

Oct 7, 2008

I have data input in a particular column, say Column C.

I would like to have a macro that deletes the rows where the corresponding entry in Column C are blank.

In addition, there are multiple worksheets with the same data format in the same spreadsheet, but the number of row varies. It would be great if the macro can delete the row with blank cell in that column across all worksheet.

Insert Blank Rows Where Date In Column D Changes

Mar 21, 2007

I have a spreadsheet containing hours logged against a specific project, all of which have a 'Week Beginning' date.

I would like a macro to insert two rows above a change of date (in the D column). How best should this be done?

It's basically a formatting macro I'm after, to group records by 'Week Beginning' date.

I've spotted a few similar requests, but none of them appeared to include the function to check for a change in date, from the cell above.

Copy Rows Where Column Cell Is Not Blank

Dec 13, 2007

What I have are invoices that span an entire month that I need to convert into a format for the billing department. The columns I have right now are: "Invoice Number"Cost CenterAccountFundType of Service" Date of Completion"Unit PriceQty Total Price

I need to generate a file with the headings as: Cost CenterFund"Date of Completion"Account Total Price. Since Total Price only appears on the rows that have the final information I need, I want to have a script that grabs every line in which the Total Price column has data, generate a file of the summary lines, then throw that through another macro to reformat it into the final format, or just do it in one step. In summary I need to grab rows where Column I is not empty, whats the best way to do this?

Hide Blank Rows Based On Value In Column

Jan 13, 2008

What I have is a sheet where the cells in range A9:A3508 have a formula that evaluates to blank if any of a variety of conditions are not met (date falls outside desired range, does not meet filter criteria, etc.) and a number if these conditions are met. What I am looking for is for all rows in that range where A is blank to be hidden (not deleted), and for this to automatically update every time A changes (meaning that if A goes from blank to a number, that I will need that row to become unhidden again). I have considered just recording the macro and calling the function with a button, but as this is for external users, some of whom may be unfamiliar with Excel, I would rather keep it as clean, simple, and automatic as possible.

How To Count A Column If It Matches Data From Another Column In Seperate Rows

Feb 6, 2009

I have two columns with dates. Colum A has the date of the deadline of a document while column b has the day it was sent. Column X will display the difference if its a positive integer ( i.e. if the document has been sent after the deadline). Now i have another column Y which displays the month as an integer of when the document was actually received.

Now i need a counter which will count the number of instances a positive integer is registered in column X according to the month in column Y. I have been trying everything but cant figure a simple way to do it. Im doing this so i can be able to see how many documents are sent after the deadline per month.

Advanced Filter To Return Rows W/blank Column

Mar 25, 2009

I have a worksheet which shows multiple tests and whether they are completed or not[code]Test 1 Person1 Test 2 Person2 Test 3...Person12. I want to search for a specific test, e.g. pH which could be in any of the "Test" columns but only return it if it is not completed. The "Person" columns will be blank if no one completed the test.

I set up the Advanced Filter criteria with all the appropriately labeled columns and for the Person columns, I put ="" but it is returning all rows which have pH in them whether they are completed or not. What should I be putting in the Person columns of the criteria to only return those rows which have the pH test but it is not completed. I attached an example of the criteria range and the filter window to help clarify (the full spreadsheet is huge)

Adding Column Minus Rows That Have Data In Another Column

Feb 15, 2007

I want a cell on one spreadsheet (SP-A) to add up a column (M) in another spreadsheet (SP-B) rows 11 through 10000.

Here's the thing, I want that cell to actually display not the sum that it gets but that sum minus all numbers (in M column again) which column E is filled out with any data for their given row...

i'm not even sure if this makes sense lol... let me use example

on SP-B there's a column M.
in row 11, value = 3
in row 12, value = 5, in this same row column E is filled with whatever
in row 13, value = 2, in this same row column E is filled with whatever
in row 14, value = 6

in my SP-A I need the cell to display 9, since rows 12 and 13 have values in E and I don't want to add those to the sum.

Comparing Values In One Column And Inserting Multiple Blank Rows

Oct 13, 2006

I am working on formatting a spreadsheet report where the values will change in column A. Here is what I would like to do via a Macro. Compare the cells in column A (e.g., compare A2 to A3, compare A3 to A4, and so on). If the values between the two cells in column A are different, insert three blank rows and set the active cell to the next cell following the blank lines. Example:

if cell A5 is different from A6, insert three blank rows below row 5 and new active cell is now A9 and the comparison would start again. I have been trying to code the macro for this but with no success. Here is the macro I have been working on.

Sub Macro1()
Const NumRow As Integer = 3
Dim StartCell As Range
Dim RowNR, NewCnt As Long
Dim RowCount As Long
Dim Count As Long
Dim intRow As Integer
Dim bFmtComplete As Boolean
RowCount = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA _
(Range("A1", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)))
bFmtComplete = False
RowNR = 2

Compare Column B With All Rows In Column A If Match Place In Column C?

Aug 13, 2014

I want to compare two columns. I would like to see if the contents of column B appear anywhere in column A, for any amount of rows, and if it does, to place the match in col C.

So in the example below, red in B1 would be checked in A1 through A1000 or however long A is. When any row has red, place that match in that row for C.

This would be repeated until all rows in B are complete.

Col A: red
Col B: red
Col C: red

Col A: red
Col B: blue
Col C: not found

Rows To Column Data

Dec 11, 2006

Our Excel spreadsheet organizes names, addresses, and the amount of money per account in the following manner:

Column A Column B Column C ....Column X
Row 1:"Account Name" "Name of Company" "Money in Accout", etc.
Row 2: "Address of company"
Row 3: "PO box"
Row 4: "More information or State and Zip Code"
Row 5:"Account Name" "Name of Company" "Money in Accout", etc.
Where the "Name of COmpany", "PO Box", "More information or state and Zip code" are all located in Column B.

We have anywhere from twenty to a thousand or so names organized like this going down a spreadsheet. In addition, the number of rows underneath a particular Company varies.

So, I was wondering if anybody knows if a VBA program could be written where the code would move the cells that are put under the name of the company (i.e., Row 2, Column B; Row 3 Column B) so they'd appear only on row 1? Ideally, this program would know when to start putting the information on, for example, row 1 or row 5 because there is an account name in Column B.

1 Row Cell Covering 4 Rows But Next Column Divided In Separate Rows

Jun 5, 2014

I am working with an excel spreadsheet. There is a column for "name", and then the next column is for medical condition.

If the same patient has multiple (say, 4) conditions, the rows for "name" are combined into a single cell(let's say, a cell going from row 2 to row 5, witha a single name in the combined cell) , with the next column having four different cells adjacent to the single cell (cell 2 has "bleeding", cell 3 has "fever", cell 4 has "diarrhea", and cell 5 has "rash"). Some patients have only single conditions, single cells.

Will this mess up COUNTS and COUNTIF?

Is there a way to split the combined cell2-5 for ''name" into four cells all containing the same name?

Find Rows W/same Value In Column A And B And Offset Column C To Next Available Column

Aug 3, 2006

I need to combine rows that have the same value in column a and column b to the same row by offsetting column c to the next available column. For example, I would like the first 6 rows of the provided sample to appear like this.

0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities

Sometimes the values are the same in column c, sometimes they are different. I do not want to delete duplicate rows where they are the same. Sometimes there are 2 rows that have the same values in column a and column b, other times there may be 3 or even 4 rows with the same values in column a and column b. Regardless, I would like the values in column c combined on the same row in the next available column. It would be nice if the duplicate column a and column b rows (with a null column c cell) were then removed, but I could do that in the next step.

0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B24<@33><i>Available water capacity:<p> High (about 11.5 inches)
0014B24<@33><i>Available water capacity:<p> Very low (about 2.9 inches)

Aligning Rows Of Data So All Of Same Value Is In Same Column?

Apr 23, 2013

I have a data set with raw data from an online survey with >2000 rows of data, with each row varying in width from 2 columns to 4 columns wide of data, located in columns A through D. Each row has the value 2 in it as well as some additional values on either the right or left side (the location of the value 2 varies -- so it's not always in the same column). Picture attached of some example data for clarification:

Picture 1.png

I want to figure out if there is a function that can align all of the 2's in the same column -- let's say Column C -- while maintaining the same data that was to the right or left of the 2 (up to two values on either side) before all of the 2's were aligned in the same column.

I could certainly manually align the central column by copying and pasting repeatedly, but that would take an incredibly long time -- and I am sure that there is a better way to do this. I can use a VLOOKUP function to align all of the 2's in a column as well as everything to the right, but I have tried using the INDEX and MATCH functions to do a VLOOKUP to the left, but this doesn't seem to be working because the source column (where the number 2 is) varies by row, so it doesn't match in the same way that a VLOOKUP function does.
