How to copy and paste skip blank cells in Excel?
Normally, when we copy some data cells in Range A which contains blanks and paste them into another Range B, the blank cells will be pasted as well, and the original data of the Range B will be missed. See following screenshots:
This will be annoying for us to miss some data, to avoid this, Excel provides a feature – Skip blanks for us to solve this problem.
The Skip blanks feature in Excel allows us to copy a data range with blank cells and paste the data within another area without overwriting the existing data with blanks. Please do with following steps:
1. Select the data range that you want to copy, and then press Ctrl + C to copy it.
2. Then select another range or cell that you need to paste the data, and then right click, choose Paste Special > Paste Special from the context menu, see screenshot:
3. In the Paste Special dialog box, check Skip blanks option, see screenshot:
4. Then click OK button, and your copied data of Range A has been pasted to Range B without the blank cells. See screenshot:
