I have a spreadsheet with 36,000 rows of data. I am focusing on one column, Column A.
The column begins with Value 1 in the first row, followed by some blank rows, and then a row with Value 1 again.
As you continue down the column, there are more blank rows and different values in the non-blank rows (Value 2, Value 3, etc.).
I need some automated way to start in cell A1 and evaluate so that "If cell below me is blank, paste me there. If cell below me is not blank and not equal to me, paste different-valued-cell to cell below it, if that cell is blank."
In other words, the blank cells need to have the value of the most-recent non-blank cell, until a new value is reached. Then, the new value needs to be pasted in the blank rows below that value, until a new value, etc.
Please see the attached files to see what I am going for. There is a .xls file (for compatibility. I am using Excel 2007.) as well as a .PNG image (both of the same thing).
Your help would be greatly appreciated, as I have other sheets where I need to do the same thing. Thank you in advance.
