excel vbs: fill column B with values of column A if B is empty

Dear Experts,

In an excel sheet I have values in seperate columns that need combined in that sense that if the cell in column B is empty the value of columnA 1 is filled in.
 I need to end up with 1 column ...

So that this:
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 18:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 18:00
12/03/2011 8:00      
12/03/2011 8:00      
12/03/2011 8:00      
12/03/2011 8:00      
12/03/2011 8:00      
12/03/2011 8:00      
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 18:01
12/03/2011 1:00      
12/03/2011 1:00      
12/03/2011 1:00      
12/03/2011 1:00      
12/03/2011 1:00      
12/03/2011 1:00      
12/03/2011 1:00      
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 16:15


Becomes that:

12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 18:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 18:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 8:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 8:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 8:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 8:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 8:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 8:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 18:01
12/03/2011 1:00      12/03/2011 1:00
12/03/2011 1:00      12/03/2011 1:00
12/03/2011 1:00      12/03/2011 1:00
12/03/2011 1:00      12/03/2011 1:00
12/03/2011 1:00      12/03/2011 1:00
12/03/2011 1:00      12/03/2011 1:00
12/03/2011 1:00      12/03/2011 1:00
12/03/2011 8:00      12/03/2011 16:15

You could use another column with formulas:
=if(B1="",A1,B1)
