I have a very large excel spread sheet where I need to transfer text from Column B to Column D in the case where there is no date (blank cell or Null) in the same row in column D and there is text in column D (same row).  Please see the attached excel spread sheet which contains two sheets -  Example and desired result. The rows where the text from column B should be copied and pasted in the same row in Column D are highlighted in the sample sheet . Thanks

In order to run this, you will need to use an xlsm workbook.
Option Explicit

Public Sub Q_28351724()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim wks As Worksheet
    Set wks = ActiveSheet   'or specific worksheet
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each rng In wks.Range(wks.Cells(2, 2), wks.Cells(wks.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row, 2))
        If Len(rng.Value) <> 0 And Not (IsDate(rng.Offset(0, 2).Value)) Then
            rng.Offset(0, 2).Value = rng.Value
        End If
    Next
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
