How to loop through rows until blank in Excel column?
Here is a long column with data which is including some empty cells, and you want to loop through the rows until meeting blank cell. In Excel, there is no built-in feature can handle this job, but I can introduce some macros to do you a favor.
1. Press Alt + F11 keys to enable the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
2. Click Insert > Module, and paste below code to the blank script.
VBA: Loop until blank
Sub Test1() 'UpdatebyExtendoffice20161222 Dim x As Integer Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' Set numrows = number of rows of data. NumRows = Range("A1", Range("A1").End(xlDown)).Rows.Count ' Select cell a1. Range("A1").Select ' Establish "For" loop to loop "numrows" number of times. For x = 1 To NumRows ' Insert your code here. ' Selects cell down 1 row from active cell. ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select Next Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
In the code, A1 is the first cell you want to loop from, you can change it as you need.
3. Press F5 key to begin looping the column, then the cursor will stop at the first met blank cell.
Note: If you want to loop through data until meet continuous blank cells, you can use this macro code.
Sub LoopThroughUntilBlanks() 'UpdatebyExtendoffice20161222 ' Select cell A2, *first line of data*. Dim xrg As Range On Error Resume Next Set xrg = Application.InputBox _ (Prompt:="first cell select..", Title:="Kutools for Excel", Type:=8) xrg.Cells(1, 1).Select ' Set Do loop to stop when two consecutive empty cells are reached. Application.ScreenUpdating = False Do Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell) And IsEmpty(ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0)) ' Insert your code here. ' ' Step down 2 rows from present location. ActiveCell.Offset(2, 0).Select Loop Application.ScreenUpdating = False End Sub
Then you need to select the first cell you want to loop from in the Kutools for Excel dialog, click OK, then the cursor stops in the first continuous blank cells.
