Excel/Combining Non-cotiguous Range into Contiguous range without delketeing rows
I have a table that contains conditional formatting.
The table has:
5 rows of data
3 blank rows
7 rows of data
2 blank rows
6 rows of data
and so on...
I would like eliminate the blank rows by moving the data rows adjacent to the last data row.
I don't want to delet ethe blank rows becaus ethey contain conditional formatting teh references the value in th erow above.
How would you recommend accomplishing this task?
I would try sorting the data (sort not filter).
generally blank cells will in the sort key column will sort to the top or bottom - reverse you order of sort to achieve what you want if they go to the wrong end.
If you want to maintain the order except for the blanks, insert a column and number it to achieve the results you want - then sort on that column.
You can then delete the dummy column.
