Am am trying to write a macro (Excel 2010) to delete the current blank cell and shift the data to the left. After that, I need to go down 2 cells and repeat the process. My column has about 10000 rows of data, so the process would need to stop after 5000 iterations.
So far I have come up with the following:
' DeleteCell Macro
I think I have the code to delete the current blank cell and move the data to the left. How can a make the cursor go down to do the process 5000 times?
Thanks for your help.
Cells.Select selects every cell on the sheet
selects the subset of cells that are blank. So it selects every blank cell on the sheet.
So that doesn't square with what you describe.
If you only had one cell selected, then you could do
activecell.offset(1,0).select would select the next cell
activecell.offset(2,0).select would go down two cells so if A1 is selected, it would select A3.
