Excel VBA - Coding a Msgbox and GoTO Exit Statement

Here is the code that is not working:
'Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'    If IsEmpty(Range("D3")) then  msgbox("error") GoTo Ex  end if
'    Range("A3:I3").Copy
'    Range("A6:I6").Insert Shift:=xlDown
'    Range("D3:I3").ClearContents
'Ex:
'End Sub

What I want to do is verify that the user has entered data before performing the Range commands.  If the cell D3 is blank I wish to display a Msgbox warning and then Exit the routine before the Range commands are processed.  Thought I could accomplish this with the Msgbox and the GoTo but something is wrong with syntax.  Appreciate any suggestions.

You might try revising your code like shown in the snippet below. I put the Range commands in an Else block of the If statement. In so doing, I could eliminate the GoTo statement.
Sub CommandButton1_Click()
If Range("D3").Value = "" Then
    MsgBox "error"
Else
    Range("A3:I3").Copy
    Range("A6:I6").Insert Shift:=xlDown
    Range("D3:I3").ClearContents
End If
End Sub

Hi,
And if you want to keep your own code separate statement with colon ( : ) on if - end if   block as follow:
Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    If IsEmpty(Range("D3")) Then MsgBox ("error"): GoTo Ex: End If
    Range("A3:I3").Copy
    Range("A6:I6").Insert Shift:=xlDown
    Range("D3:I3").ClearContents
Ex:
End Sub
