Finding the first nonblank cell in a row, from a specific position.

C.Offset(0, 5).Value = CH_FinGrp

Using this command to place a value on a sheet from within a For Selection loop.
What if the cell that this is going in is not blank?  How do I tell this to search for the first nonblank cell to the right of (0, 5) and place it there??

Slightly confusing question.

What if the cell this is going in is not blank? If so, it is the first nonblank cell. Are you wanting the first BLANK cell to the right?

If so you could increase the Offset command value within a Do Loop

ColOffset = 5
Do Until C.Offset(0,ColOffset).Value = ""
ColOffset = ColOffset + 1
Loop
C.Offset(0,ColOffset).Value = CH_FinGrp

Open in new window

If it goes one cell too far, might have to put the Until statement after the Loop rather than after the Do

ColOffset = 5
Do 
ColOffset = ColOffset + 1
Loop Until C.Offset(0,ColOffset).Value = ""
C.Offset(0,ColOffset).Value = CH_FinGrp
