I have multiple Excel worksheets in a workbook in which I would like to, for each worksheet, inspect column C for the presence of only a hyphen "-".

  If there is only a hyphen present in the cell in Column C, then I want to copy what is in that same row in Column D into Column C.

  So, if row 10 of Column C has only a hyphen, then copy the contents of D10 into C10 and continue wherever there is only a hyphen in a cell in Column C.

Well, you can do it by VBA.

This will do it for one sheet.

Sub CheckColumnC()
Dim I As Long, WS As Worksheet
Set WS = ActiveSheet

For I = 1 To WS.Cells(Rows.Count, 3).End(xlUp).Row
    If WS.Cells(I, 3) = "-" Then
        WS.Cells(I, 3) = WS.Cells(I, 4)
    Else
        WS.Cells(I, 3) = WS.Cells(I, 3)
    End If
Next
End Sub

This should takes care of all the worksheets in the workbook.

Sub CheckColumnCAllSheet()
Dim I As Long, WS As Worksheet
Set WB = ActiveWorkbook
For Each WS In Worksheets
    For I = 1 To WS.Cells(Rows.Count, 3).End(xlUp).Row
        If WS.Cells(I, 3) = "-" Then
            WS.Cells(I, 3) = WS.Cells(I, 4)
        Else
            WS.Cells(I, 3) = WS.Cells(I, 3)
        End If
    Next
Next
End Sub
