Want in collum A to apply a formula where in all blanks in that collumn it populates the part in the cell above it before the next part comes up, than the blanks under that next part to put that part, etc..., etc...

Is there one formula I can use and than filter by blanks, select visible cells, apply and wa la it does this for me?
