Check current cell is empty
I'm getting stuck...
If I enter some new data in Sheet2, column A, then this cell will be copied
to last cell of sheet 1 columnA automatically. This task can be done now
IF the data is overwriting some existing data, no need to copy.
my logic is
if the active cell is empty, and the target column is 1, then do the copy
else, do nothing
The question is: how can I check the current cell is empty?
Thank you in Advance
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) Then
MsgBox "Activecell Is Empty"

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10
2004 which is not a ra...Outlook needs Outlook Express to work

Is there a way to move a cell contents to another cell with a formula. ex:
if a5="Name" then move g5 to j5? Also, I am using
=INDEX(Sheet1!B3:B12,INT((RAND()*10)+1),1) to pick random names from a list.
I have the formula in different place pick random names from different list.
This does work, but I have different list with some of the same names and
with the random pick I do not want the same name to appear.
Thanks for any and all help.

I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be
used from a cell e.g.
"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.
