Insert Appropriate Number Of Blank Spaces In Cells B Through H

Aug 19, 2014

I am having trouble trying to figure out how to insert blank cells:

I need to insert cells, in columns B through H, equal to the number of returned IDs in column B.

Please take a look at the spreadsheet I attached.

Here is the code I am using to separate the IDs in column B so that I get one ID in each A cell. When I do this it separates them great, but then I have to manually go in and insert cells down so that the rest of the rows match up with the right ID.

Sub Macro1()
Dim fromCol As String
Dim toCol As String
Dim fromRow As String
Dim toRow As String

[Code] .....

Removing Blank Spaces From The Beginning Of Cells

Jun 16, 2009

I'm compiling several old worksheets into a single database for a research study. The worksheets contain patient data. Some of the worksheets have the patient's last name, first name, and middle initial entered all in one cell like this: Smith,John R. Compounding the problem is the fact that sometimes the name is entered with a space between the comma and the first name, sometimes not.

I have formulas to break the name out into three separate columns "lName, "fName", "midInit". However, if the name in the original cell has a space between the coma and the first name, then the “fname” column will contain a blank space in front of the name. This is problem because patients names can appear in the database more than once. Some patients are in the database several times.

If patient “John R. Smith”, for example, is entered in the database as”

“Smith” “John” “R “

and also as

“Smith” “<space>John” “R”

then the database won’t recognize them as the same name when I search for John Smith’s data. Right?

If so, then I need a way to eliminate the empty spaces in front of the first names. Like I said, some have empty spaces and some don’t. I could do this by hand, but there are over 1000 entries in these worksheets.

Insert Blank Cells Not Rows

Apr 2, 2012

I have the following macro that inserts a blank line when a field changes. This works fine. However I would like to use this in another spreadsheet that has several addition columns of unrelated data. Therefore I want to insert 1 (row of) blank cells only in the columns specified in the range. The range is 3 columns wide, E - G. I think I'm close, but ...

Dim myRow As Long
myRow = 3 'data starting row
Do Until Cells(myRow, 5) = "" ' the # is the column that changes which I want to trigger a blank insertion
If Cells(myRow, 5) = Cells(myRow - 1, 5) Then
myRow = myRow + 1

[Code] ..........

Macro Insert Cells In First Blank Column

Jul 6, 2008

I am trying to come up with a code that will copy column A entirely, and insert the copied cells into the first blank column. In the columns with information in them, there will always be text in the first cell, so that can be used as the test to find the first blank column, but I'm not sure how to get this done for my macro.

Insert Cell To Columns Having X Blank Cells In Row

Aug 25, 2008

I need to put an extra "spacer" cell in each row that contains either 8 or 9 blank spacer cells in columns A through H or A through I, respectively, so that everything in those rows shifts to the right by one column. The problem is that all the other rows don't need any extra spacer cells. There is no pattern to the rows that need the extra spacer cell (such as every 5th row, or something).

Insert Multiple Blank Rows At Designated Cells

Jun 13, 2014

I have a large list of cells in excel: 15, 33, 90, 102, 149, 159, 217, 228, 238, 247, 305, 312, 369, 417, 428, 486, 538, 548, 606, 621, 671, 679, 737, 805, 816, 874, 915, 923, 981, 1029,1038 .

Under each of these cells I would like to insert 20 blank rows. I have tried various codes but i'm struggling with the fact that as soon as I insert 20 rows at cell 15, all the other cellnumbers change.

This is a reformulation of this post: [URL] ...........

Fill With Blank Spaces

Jul 11, 2006

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:


But if one of the cells is blank:..................

Count Number Of Blank Cells In Range Starting And Ending Will Cells That Match String Values

May 13, 2013

I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.

Color Blank Cells In A Row Between 2 Cells With Specific Number

Jan 31, 2013

I have a similar question regarding coloring of empty cells between two cells with specific numbers as posted in below thread : [URL] .....

This is exactly what I want. But here I have some problem with formula.


Above formula could pick cell value 1 and color the empty cells in a row between the cells having value=1. But if I want to use the same formatting for other numbers like 2 or 3 it doesn't work.

For example in row(A1:Z1) I have A1=1, D1=1, and F1=2, K1=2, and O1=3, U1=3

I required multiple conditional formatting that could color the cells based on values first from A to D then from F to K and finally from O to U.

I'm using above formatting it works with cells having values 1 but its not working for 2, 3 or any other cells values.

I have already tried replacing 1 in above formula with 2 and 3 but it doesn't work.

However, I need it to display absolutely nothing in the cells, rather than a

Preventing Blank Spaces On Userform Textboxes

Apr 18, 2007

On a userform, I have three textboxes, one listbox, and an OK button. When the user presses the OK button, the information in these boxes is pasted onto a worksheet. I am wondering how I can detect if any of these boxes have been accidentally left empty, so as to prevent the user from pasting an incomplete entry onto the worksheet. This is what I have so far (this is part of the routine that executes when the OK button is pressed):

If EnterGrowerTextBox.Text = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Enter the Grower Name"
Exit Sub
End If
If EnterAmountTextBox.Text = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Enter the Number of Chicks"
Exit Sub
End If
If EnterBreedTextBox.Text = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Enter the Breed"
Exit Sub
End If......................

Color Blank Cells Between 2 Cells With A Number In Them

Apr 20, 2008

creating this code or fomatting in my excel file. I want to fill color in cells between the two cells that has value of say "1" or anything in it. There will be only 2 numbers at any time in any row that has the value in it. All other cells will have value of "0" or can be changed to empty cells. So, the formula should check from say range "A3 to Z3" in row and for example it gets the first numbered cell in C3 then it start filling color from C3 cell until it reaches the other cell in that range that has the number in it. Say the row "A3 to Z3" has 1 number in C3 and other in cell H3 then it should fill color between this two cells from C3,D3,E3,F3,G3 and H3.

Find Blank Cells With Number

Mar 6, 2008

I have this formula in columns C:D and G:F -

Try this formula. Array formulas will have curly brackets {} emcompassing the ENTIRE formula. You do not add these, you Enter the formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter and Excel will add them (details: Array formulas). Many more Excel Formulas


Some of the cells end up with nothing in them. Columns E and H are the differenced of C & D and G & F respectfully. The problem is that some of the cells in E and H state #VALUE! because there isn't any data in the other columns (C2 is blank, D2 is 24, E2 is #VALUE!). If I update C2 with 0 then I receive the correct answer in E2 of -24.

I want to have a macro auto fill all blank cells (even though there is the formula in them there isn't data) with a "0". I am using the below code and it is Compile error: Type mismatch at the "True" part of the code.

Sub FindEmptyCellAutoFill()
Dim rFound As Range

With ActiveSheet.Range("C:D", "F:G")
Set rFound = . Find(What:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues)
If rFound Is True Then AutoFillValue "0"
If rFound Is False Then Exit Do
End With

End Sub
