Quickly Fill In all Blank Cells in Excel Report

Frequently clients will show me a report that they have downloaded from a Main Frame Computer or a Database Report. The report contains multiple blank cells. In order for my client to insert a Pivot Table or to perform Subtotals, they must fill in the blank cells by copying the value for the cell above. I have watched, in amazement, as clients copy and paste – or even type in – the missing values. There is an efficient way to perform this task. Here are the Excel Concepts that I cover in this short – 3 minute – Excel video training lesson:

  • Go To Special – Current Range
  • Go To Special – Blank Cells
  • Use Ctrl + Enter to register the formula into each cell in the selected range
  • Copy, Paste Special Values to convert formulas to values
