    Replacing Empty Cell With Formula

    Hello,

    I have a macro where I want to replace all empty cells in a range with a formula. Here is the code that I have currently:

    However, this replacement method removes the relative cell referencing. I need "G14" in the IF statement to update to whichever row the empty cell is in. For example, if the empty cell is K20, I need the replacement formula to be this:

    I think you could solve your problem by changing your formula a bit. Instead of saying "G14" you could say "ADDRESS(ROW(),7,1,1)" and i think that might solve it.

    Probably the ADDRESS function shall be nested in INDIRECT so it would be rather complicated. (and it's volatile, so will be fully recalculated each time anything changes in a sheet)
    Why not simply write the formula to all empty cells instead of replacing their content? The R1C1 notation would make this easy. Try:

    of course code is longer, but the formula in the worksheet would be just regular formula
    Best Regards,

    Thank you Kaper! I need to look into R1C1 notation and "on error" stuff to make sure I understand this 100%, but so far it looks to work well.

    This both On Error instructions switch of and on standard reaction to the execution time error.
    Why there could be an error? If case of no blank cells in a range replace was doing 0 replacements ;-) but assigning a no-cell range to a range type variable would cause an error.

    You can observe (and learn) row number column number notation also in a spreadsheet. In excel options/formulas you will find something like "use R1C1 adressing style"
