Checking if a cell is filled up with data


I would like to write a function that checks if a cell is empty or if
it has any kind of data. The kind of datas (numbers or words or bocth)
is irrelevant. The only thing that is important is whether or not the
cell is empty.  Has anyone an idea how I could write such a function?

Enter this formula in cell B1. If A1 is empty, then B1 will be empty,
else it will put the value of A1 in B1

Convert Cell Text to Matching Hyperlink?????
We have an Excel spreadsheet that contains information to scanned images being populated into our engineering database. In the spreadsheet there is information as to the creation time and date, size, title and other related information. One of the columns is the name and location of the actual TIFF image file. This field is just text. What we would like to do is convert the cell from just text stating the location and filename to a hyperlink pointing to the specific file. For example, the cell contents state : G: \folder2007\subfolder0320\00001234.tif We would like to still have the tex...

Large amount of cell text
Hi, We have a case where we have received records from a Hotmail subpoena. Microsoft has put the records in an Excel spreadsheet with all emails for a six month period being contained in a single column and tens of thousands of rows. The problem I am having is that some of the cells that contain the text from the email messages are very long, and makes reading of the cells difficult. An attempt to save to or publish to a different format for easier reading causes truncation of the text in those particular cells. Word Wrap, Autofit, nor simply double-clicking on the cell margin d...

"Data Range"
I'm running Access-to-Excel automation for a Calendar Year's Data. If I set the Data Range to 53 rows, by 2 columns, I can populate up to 53 weeks worth of Data...365 (366) days = "53 weeks". As the Chart fills w/ data for a full-year, I need to widen it (and print on 11 by 17 paper) to see all 53 data points. Is there a way to have the "Data Range" "select" only the number of weeks that have occurred...IE, If 12 weeks, the "Data range" plots only those 12 weeks...

Copying color formatting from cell to cell
On sheet A, I show work assignments by date and location. Dates are listed on the left column and jobs are listed along the top. I can assign Joe to "Job 101" on June 10, 2005 by putting his name under "Job 101" for June 10. If it is an all-day job, I put an * in front of Joe's name and it colors the cell yellow (using a conditional formatting rule). On sheet B, the dates are listed in the left hand column and then the employees are listed in columns next to the dates. I have used a look up formula to show "Job 101" under Joe's name for June 10, 2005. I ...

Linking Cells Between Sheets
This very straight forward function no longer works for me. When I enter "=" the cell reference cell changes to "ACOSH" as opposed to "VLOOKUP" on other computers.

Hello, I need help designing a VBA Macro: I have in cell A1 "Paid" in cell G8 "total" in cell H8 $100.00 What I need is: to cell.find "paid" then to do cell.offset to G8 to select.copy the value in H8. Is this possible ? Regards, Minimally, the code looks like this: Sub Copy_If_Paid() If ActiveCell.Value = "Paid" Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 7).Copy End If End Sub This works when the cell pointer is already on cell A1. A lot depends on how your information is displayed on the spreadsheet. Do you have many rows of Paid / Unpaid entries? Often I&#...

VBA solution to paste text into megred cells
I do realize that merged cells are bad news. I'm stuck with an Excel 2003 worksheet, which contains this dreaded feature. Users are complaining that on trying to paste text into merged cells gives Excel Warnings: "Data on the Clipboard is not the same size and shape as the selected area. Do you want to paste anyway?" And: "Cannot change part of a merged cell." Interestingly, though if the user hits F2, which places the cursor in the formula bar, then the paste operation works!

Authorizing checks with RMS
I recently removed PCCharge and setup my syetm to work with a preferred merchant provider to allow native processing of credit & debit cards.

Thanks, Richard Unfortunately, it's not. PC Charge is the only option for check processing in RMS as far as I know.

Check names not working for multiple address books / contacts

Printing Checks
I'm having a problem printing checks from Money 2003. I have three accounts that come up in one .mny file. Two of the accounts use 3-on-a-page checks and I want the name and address printed on them.

Which the maximum of characters of value in a cell?
When I impute a numerical sequence in a cell with more than 15 digits, excel does not conserve the typed value, modifying the digits from 16th typed. I ask: it is necessary to adjust some configuration in excel? Hi Excel's numerical limit is 15 digits. If you need to use more than 15, you'll have to enter it as text - either by formatting the cell as text before you type into it, or by starting the entry with a ' Hope this helps. Andy.
