    Ignore empty cells

    Hi,

    This is my first post to Excel Forum. I consider myself a VB novice... Here is my question. I have that macro to merge the content of a collumn range (email addreses). The macro will add a separator ";" beetween each addresse. I'd like it to ignore empty cells so it doesn't come out with a bunch of ;;;;;;; for the empty cells.

    Thanks for helping

    Re: Ignore empty cells

    Personally I would take the lazy approach and sort column N to get rid of empty cells :\ But I am also pretty novice at VB.

    If you don't need it to be VB, another really lazy way would be to add a new column O, and enter the following;

    Cell O3: =N3
    Cell O4: =N4&";"&O3

    And just copy cell O4 that all the way down, by the time you get to O600 you'll have them all, and none of the blanks will appear. Just copy/paste values and you'll have your email addresses in one line

    Hello nomis65,

    Welcome to the Forum!

    The Join method unfortunately does not allow you to skip blank cells. You would need to loop through the cells in the range and test if the cell is empty or not.
