1. Highlight the range contains multiple blank cells.

2. Click Developer > Visual Basic, a new Microsoft Visual Basic for applications window will be displayed, click Insert > Module, then copy and paste the following code into the Module:

Sub FillEmptyBlankCellWithValue()
'Fill an empty or blank cell in selection
'with value specified in InputBox
Dim cell As Range
Dim InputValue As String
On Error Resume Next
'Prompt for value to fill empty cells in selection
InputValue = InputBox("Enter value that will fill empty cells in selection", _
"Fill Empty Cells")
'Test for empty cell. If empty, fill cell with value given
For Each cell In Selection
If IsEmpty(cell) Then
cell.Value = InputValue
End If
Next
End Sub

3. Click doc-multiply-calculation-3 button to run the code, and a prompt box will appear. You can input any value into the blank box. For example, I input “empty” into it. See screenshot:
