count blank cells in a range using VBA

Hi,


I seem to be 'search challenged' today - I'm sure this is easy. How does one count the number of non-blank cells in a range using VBA?

I have a file........see enclosed.

I want to count the number of non-blank cells in a range from A to Z along a given row.

Then once the loop is done i want it to tell me the row which had the most non-empty cells but its not working.

I am trying to count the Maximum Number of Blank Cells between Non Blank
Cells in a Range.
e.g.
Range A1:a13
a1 - 2
a3 - blank
a4 - blank
a5 - 24
a6 - blank
a7 - 7
a8 - 51
a9 - blank
a10 - blank
a11 blank
a12 - blank
a13 - 6
The answer is 4. Cells a9 to a12.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Mal

Hi

In MS Excel 2007, I'm trying to use a function to search for (and display) a
specific text string that resides within a cell, providing that it is the
last non blank cell in a range of cells across a row.

e.g. If searching row 2:2 (or a section of this row) for the last non blank
cell, I want to then search within that last cell to locate the word "pass",
where the same cell may also contain any combination of text/number values.
If "pass" exists within the cell, I want to return a the same text value of
"pass". Note that “pass” may exist across various cells in the range.

-- I've managed to successfully return the entire contents that reside
within the last non-blank cell (with the following formula):

=IF(ISNA(LOOKUP(2,1/('QA Results'!$D2:$CY2""),'QA
Results'!$D2:$CY2)),"",LOOKUP(2,1/('QA Results'!$D2:$CY2""),'QA
Results'!$D2:$CY2))

-- I've also achieved similar results when searching the cell range for the
last known cell that successfully contains the text “pass” (this is not
necessarily the last non blank cell in the range). Again the entire cell
content is returned.

=IF(OR(ISNA('QA Results'!D2:CY2),ISERROR(LOOKUP(2,1/SEARCH("Pass",'QA
Results'!D2:CY2),'QA Results'!$D$2:$CY$2))),"",LOOKUP(2,1/SEARCH("Pass",'QA
Results'!D2:CY2),'QA Results'!$D$2:$CY$2))

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Forgive me for these trivial questions, but I cant find the answer using the documentation.

I want a formula to use the bottom non-blank cell in a range. How can this be achieved?

afternoon, i need to count blank cells in a closed work book where the range being counted contains formulas which return either a value or a blank. i need to count all the blanks.

any one suggest a way?

thank you

I posted this earlier, but my post disappeared somehow.
anywho, i would really appreciate any help because this is driving me nuts.
im using excel 2003:

Here is a screen grab of what i am trying to do:

http://skitch.com/lukehall/bey27/picture-1

i want to count blank cells in a column, depending on a value in another row.

B10 should count the blank cells which have "M" in column A (2)
B11 should count the blank cells which have "F" in column A (0)
C10 should count the blank cells which have "M" in column A (1)
C11 should count the blank cells which have "F" in column A (1)

Thanks guys,

Hi

Ok, I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

=COUNTBLANK(C6:AD2506)

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.

Any help?

Hey there all -
I am sure that this is terribly simple, but it has eluded me thus far. I am
trying to figure out how to find the first blank cell in a range. I am
working on creating a time sheet, and I need to be able to find the first
blank cell in a specific range of cells. I have found information on finding
the first blank cell in a single column, but this will be a two column range
that I am working with. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please help: How can i programmatically lookup the cell adress for next
non-blank cell in a range?

the formual finds c20 is the first blank cell and it
returns me the cell to the right, the next invoice number
avaiable, 121

I'm just trying to create a formula in a cell that will count the cells in a
range that don't have a "nil" fill color.

Hi,

i have few blank cells in column A. i find the last row containing data in column A and then i am trying to find the blank cells in column A which works fine.

once i find a blank cell in column A, i would need to select the range of cells till i find the cell with values,basically count the number of blank cells within a range.

now within this range i have values in column E, i need to find Min of these values and delete all blank rows which are not Min.

for eg, i identified first blank cell in A72, so i go to E71 and select the range of cells in E column till i find a non blank cell in A column which is E71:E72 in this case. i have 296 in E71 and 359 in E72, so i find the Min which is 296, so i delete the row which has 359.

Hope this explains.

please help.

Using VBA, given a range of cells, is there a command that will return the number of cells in that range? I could loop, but I'm looking for a simpler method.

Is there a way I can count the cells in a range up until a certain value and use this # as a variable?

Hi,

I need a formula which will generate the row number of the first blank cell in a range of five cells. (The other four cells will have numbers in).

I don't want to use VBA.

I wanted to use the match function but am not sure how to tell excel I want a blank cell. I have tried the following which DON'T WORK:

=MATCH("",D1:D5,1)
=MATCH(isblank(),D1:D5,1)

I'm using Office XP and I am looking for a formula, not VBA.

Many thanks!

I need to find a way to find a blank cell in a range of cells. The catch is, the range changes constantly. So one time it might be A1 to D6 and another it might be A1 to G60. Is there a way I can limit a Find command to seek out only the range on the sheet.

I can have it do an activecell (A1) currentregion selection, but I am not sure how to tell VBA to seach just the highlighted region for a blank cell after that.

Can anyone help me, please?

Hi All,

Some help from you all would be great on this on, I have a sheet wich I would like to copy the cell value from A2 and B2 to a Range that I have created called "Front_Desk" Which is N2:N20, I would like it to drop it into the next available BLANK cell in the range, when a Option is selected on a Combo Box (Drop Down List), I have tried and tried and i cant get it to work, Any Ideas

Thanks in advance

I'm writing a macro that copies a selection from one sheet and pastes it on a different sheet. However, I need it to paste it in the first BLANK cell in column "A". What would be the string for that? It would have to make that sheet the active sheet and then make the first cell in column A the active cell. However, I can't figure out how to get it to look for the first empty cell. I would guess it would be an "If Then" procedure, correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a function to count the cells in a range, which have a given
interior color?

I have not been able to find a countif function formula that will allow me to
count cells in a range only if they have been shaded certain colors. Any
info would be greatly appreciated!

Is there a way to find the first blank cell in a column using a formula?

I just finished writing this function, and thought other people might find it helpful. It returns the address of the last non-blank cell in a range. It seems like I'm doing this constantly in my programming, so I finally just wrote a function for it. Enjoy!

 
Public Function LastCellAddress(TableRange As Range) 
'This function returns the cell address of the last non-blank cell in a range. 
' 
' Use like this... 
' Dim LastCell as String 
' LastCell = LastCellAddress(TableRange:=Columns("A:E")) 
' Range("A1",LastCell).copy 
' This copies from cell A1 to the last data cell in A:E. 
' 
Dim FirstTableCell As String 
FirstTableCell = TableRange.Cells(1, 1).Address 
LastCellAddress = TableRange.Find(What:="*", After:=Range(FirstTableCell), LookIn:=xlValues, SearchOrder:=xlByRows,
SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Address 
End Function
