      xTxt = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.AddressLocal
    End If
    Set xRg = Application.InputBox("Please select range:", "Kutools for Excel", xTxt, , , , , 8)
    If xRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    If xRg.Areas.Count > 1 Then
        MsgBox "You can’t select multiple ranges to operate", vbInformation, "Kutools for Excel"
        Exit Sub
    End If
    xCount = xRg.Rows.Count
    For I = xCount To 1 Step -1
        If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountBlank(xRg.Rows(I)) > 0 Then
        End If
End Sub
