Loop until Cell is empty

I am having trouble with a simple do/loop.  I want to loop until there is no value in the cell in column C.  Here is what I currently have:

Counter = 2
 
 Do
 Range("D" & Counter).Select
 Range("D" & Counter) = Range("Change!C9")
 Counter = Counter + 1
 Loop While ("C" & Counter) <> Null


This results in the first cell 'D2' being filled in but no other cells in row D.

I have tried Loop Until- this results in a never ending loop.  I have also tried
Loop While ("C" & Counter) <> ""- this results in a never ending loop.


Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong.

Change your loop to check for an empty string

While Range("C" & Counter) <>""

Entered

 Do While Range("C" & Counter) <> ""
 
 Range("D" & Counter).Select
 Range("D" & Counter) = Range("Change!C9")
 Counter = Counter + 1
 Loop

and worked perfectly.
