    How would you be able to replicate this within a file containing multiple worksheets - so that it can fill in the blanks of multiple (or all) the worksheets at the same time?

    Thank you very much for the tutorial on: How to fill blank cells with 0 or other specific value in Excel? Was a life-saver in this large workbook Im pressed for time with. It was easy to follow. I would note that not all Excel books have quite the same ribbon labels, ie Find & Select or Edit. I came across: [b] "Go To Special" Shortcut: ctrl + g[/b]. Someone else might find useful as well.

    Is there a way to stop this when reaching two blank cells in column "A"?


    Sub Test()
    'This macro will fill all "blank" cells with the text "Test"
    'When no range is selected, it starts at A1 until the last used row/column
    'When a range is selected prior, only the blank cell in the range will be used.
    On Error GoTo ErrHandler:
    Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).FormulaR1C1 = "Test"
    Exit Sub
    ErrHandler:
    MsgBox "No blank cells found", vbDefaultButton1, Error
    Resume Next
    End Sub

    For larger areas use the .specicalcells method;

    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 = 0 'InputBox("Enter value that will fill empty cells in selection", _
    "Fill Empty Cells")
    'Test for empty cell. If empty, fill cell with value given
    If Selection.Cells.Count = 1 Then Exit Sub
    With Selection
    .Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Select
    With Selection
    .Cells.Value = 0
    End With
    End With
    'For Each cell In Selection
    'If IsEmpty(cell) Then
    'cell.Value = InputValue
    'End If
    'Next
    End Sub
