    Hi,

    I have used the below code previously and I am trying to repurpose it for something else. I would like to offset the text in cells B10, B13, B14, B15 if the associated cell in column C is blank. is this possible in the below code?

    Hi, does anyone reply to say if something cannot be done? I would just like to know whether I need to explore other options.

    Many thanks.

    It frustrating when no one answers, but that's usually because no one understands what you're after: I can't tell from you posts or attachments.

    When the button is clicked:

    What do you want it to check for?
    What should it do if that condition is not met?
    And what should it do when it is?

    Re: offsetting text from blank cells

    And where does Column C come in like you state in your opening post ?
    Maybe this is what your after ?

    Avoid using Select, Selection and Activate in your code. Use With ... End With instead.

    Re: offsetting text from blank cells

    Thank you for your response and I apologise for not making it clearer.

    The original workbook I am working with has hundreds of cells where data is entered.

    before they save and send the workbook for approval (via another command button), I need a messagebox telling them what cells are missing data so they can only send it once completed. so the answer to your questions are as follows:

    What do you want it to check for? - missing information in series of cells
    What should it do if that condition is not met? message box with the 'name' of the cell they have not entered, not just the cell reference
    And what should it do when it is? - exit sub

    I can see that bakerman2 has also responded to this below.

    Best Regards.

    Re: offsetting text from blank cells

    Thank you Bakerman2 also for your response.

    I have just tested your code on my test workbook and that is exactly what I was looking for. If I wanted to adapt it so it looked for a series of individual missing cells in a range rather than a 'range' ie A1:A5 but A1, A7, A9, A15 etc, would that also be possible? so a random selection as originally mentioned in the first post.

    the test workbook was for illustrative purposes only.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Re: offsetting text from blank cells

    To provide a suitable solution we would have to know exactly what cells we're talking about.

    Re: offsetting text from blank cells

    Dear Bakerman2,

    Many thanks for your response. I really appreciate your assistance.

    I have attached a workbook and put an X in the Cells where I need the corresponding 'Text' some are in column A, some are in Row 20.

    it is A8, A11, A12, A13

    C20, H20, I20, J20, L20, N20, O20, P20.


    I realise this is a lot to ask and so if it is too complex, then please let me know.

    Many thanks once again.

    Re: offsetting text from blank cells

    Hi,

    Can you please help me with one last point...if the cells indicated below are all NOT blank, ie the form has been completed successfully, then how do I get the code to move onto the rest of the sub?
    I have included the first few lines of the rest of the sub at the bottom

    Many thanks in advance.

    That's great. Many thanks once again.

    I am experiencing some slight strange behaviour with the code but I will try to work it out.

    Many thanks and best regards
