Fill Blank Cells for Microsoft Excel
How to easily fill empty cells in Excel
Fill Blank Cells for Excel will copy the contents downwards or upwards from the first populated cell. In addition, you can specify if your table has headers or choose to split the merged cells. This handy tool will make the filling routine a breeze!
Follow these steps to fill blank ranges in your table.
- Select a range in your table where you need to replicate cell values.
Tip. If you click on any cell in your table and run the program, it will select the entire table automatically.
- Run the add-in by clicking on its icon and you will see the Fill Blank Cells window with the list of your columns.
- Select the columns where you need to fill blanks by checking the boxes next to them. The columns you select are automatically highlighted in your table. If you have a lot of columns in your spreadsheet, you can benefit from the Clear All checkbox.
- It is also possible to indicate if there are header rows in your table. As a rule, the add-in identifies headers automatically. If it didn't, you can check the My Table has headers option. You can also uncheck this option if you don't want header rows to be indicated.
- Select the Fill cells downwards radio button if you need to fill the blanks using the value from the cell above the range with empty cells.
- If you want to fill gaps with the value of the cell below, select the Fill cells upwards radio button.
- If there are merged cells in your table, you can unmerge them by ticking the Split the merged cells on the add-in window.
