Dear Experts:

I got thousand of entries in Column D.

A macro should now perform the following action:

As soon as the macro hits a blank cell in Column D, the cell that is located right next to it on the same row, i.e. on Column E,  should get the property bold .

Thank you very much in advance.

I have attached a sample file for your convenience.

Regards, Andreas

Hi,

Sub Bolding()

Set myRange = Range(Range("D1"), Range("D65000").End(xlUp))

For Each cell In myRange
    If cell.Text = "" Then
        cell.Offset(0, 1).Font.Bold = True
    End If
Next

End Sub

Open in new window

Or apply conditional formatting:

Highlight column E
Conditional formatting > Based upon formula
Formula:
=$D1=""
Format to be bold.
Accept.

This will do it without macro code.
