vba 2010 excel.
userform.

I have a listbox.
That contains blanks items in the listbox

The code below will help get rids of dups in the listbox.
But I need to just get rid of all blanks or null values from a listbox.

I believe i just check for
If .List(z) = "" and/or If .List(f) = ""

But trying to figure out how to nest it here in the code ?



With UserForm2.ListBox49
        For f = 0 To .ListCount - 1
            For z = .ListCount To (f + 1) Step -1
                If .List(z) = .List(f) Then
                    .RemoveItem z
                End If
            Next
        Next
    End With

Try this update to your code, adding a "or blank" condition in your if statement.

With UserForm2.ListBox49
        For f = 0 To .ListCount - 1
            For z = .ListCount To (f + 1) Step -1
                If .List(z) = .List(f) or .List(z)="" Then
                    .RemoveItem z
                End If
            Next
        Next
    End With

'' loop get rid of blanks
 Dim l As MSForms.ListBox: Set l = UserForm2.ListBox49
  Dim i As Long: i = 0

 '' remove anything that looks like a blank
  While i < l.ListCount
    If "" = Trim$(l.List(i, 0)) Then: l.RemoveItem (i): Else i = 1 + i
  Wend


this works.

 .List(z)="" Then


added reverse solution here:
'' loop get rid of blanks
 Dim l As MSForms.ListBox: Set l = UserForm2.ListBox49
  Dim i As Long: i = 0

 '' remove anything that looks like a blank
  While i < l.ListCount
    If "" = Trim$(l.List(i, 0)) Then: l.RemoveItem (i): Else i = 1 + i
  Wend
