an easier method may be to run a simple macro that deletes all rows where column B is empty?

SORRY, I LOOKED AT 'DESIRED' NOT 'CURRENT' -

1. you shouldn't use 'current' as a sheet name.

2. try this:
Sub FixData()
  Dim x As Long, lastRow As Long, thisUser As String
  lastRow = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("XXX").Range("B65000").End(xlUp).Row + 1
  x = 2
  While x < lastRow
    If Cells(x, 1) <> "" Then
      x = x + 1
      While Cells(x, 1) = "" And x < lastRow
        Cells(x, 1) = Cells(x - 1, 1)
        x = x + 1
      Wend
    End If
  Wend
End Sub

Here's one way to do that:

Sub CopyData()
Dim i, r As Integer
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
i = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For r = 2 To i
  Range("A" & r).Select
    If Len(Range("A" & r).Value) > 0 Then
      Selection.Copy
    Else
      Range("A" & r).Select
      ActiveSheet.Paste
    End If
  Next r
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

With a macro

Sub fillwithuppercells()
ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns(1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).FormulaR1C1 = "=r[-1]c"
End Sub
