Count blank or nonblank cells with formula


In Excel, there are formulas that can help you quickly count only blank or nonblank cells in a range.

For instance, you need to count the blank cells only in this range as shown as below, and select a blank cell to type this formula =COUNTIF(A1:G11,"") (the range A1:G11 indicates the range you want to count the blank cells from, you can change it as you need), and press Enter button on the keyboard, you will count the blank cells. See screenshot:

Tip: You can use this formula: =COUNTBLANK(A1:G11) to count blank cells only, too. If you want to count only nonblank cells, you can use this formula =COUNTA(A1:G11) (the range A1:G11 indicates the range you want to count the nonblank cells from, you can change it as you need), or you also can use this formula =COUNTIF(A1:G11,"<>").


Count blank or nonblank cells with VBA

Please follow the next steps to using VBA code to convert count the blank or nonblank cells only.

1. Hold ALT button and press F11 on the keyboard to open a Microsoft Visual Basic for Application window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and copy the VBA into the module.

VBA: Count the blank cells only

Sub CountBlanks()

Dim rng As Range
Dim WorkRng As Range
Dim total As Long
On Error Resume Next
xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel"
Set WorkRng = Application.Selection
Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Range", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type:=8)
For Each rng In WorkRng
    If IsEmpty(rng.Value) Then
        total = total + 1
    End If
Next
MsgBox "There are " & total & " blank cells in this range."
End Sub

3. Click Run to run the VBA, and a KutoolsforExcel dialog pops up for you to select a working range, See screenshot:

4. Then click OK in the dialog, and another dialog displays to tell you how many the blank cells are in this selected range.
