Writing a line of code that tells the macro to go to the next row if a row already has content.

Hello There,

I have a macro down below.

Im just wondering if there's a way for that macro to go to the next row if there is content on the row that its about to use.
I was thinking of editing the GetCellText() function, but i receive an error.

Option Explicit

Sub WordToExcel()

    Dim sh As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim strFolder As String
    Dim strFile As String
    Dim strFullName As String
    Dim r As Integer
    Set sh = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1")
    'Insert Folder Link
    strFolder = "C:\MyFolder\"
    strFile = Dir(strFolder & "*.doc*")
    r = 2
    Do Until strFile = ""
        strFullName = strFolder & strFile
        CopyTableFromDocx strFullName, sh, r
        strFile = Dir()
        r = r + 1

End Sub

Sub CopyTableFromDocx(strMSWordFileName As String, sh As Worksheet, r As Integer)

    Dim objDoc As Word.Document
    'Dim lngTableIndex As Long
    Dim objWordTable As Word.Table
    Dim objWordCell As Word.cell
    Dim strLabel As String
    Dim strData As String
    Const mtrDsc As String = "? "
    Dim c As Integer
    Dim t As Integer
    Dim bFound As Boolean
    'Dim lngRowIndex As Long, lngColumnIndex As Long
    'Dim strCleanCellValue As String

    'get reference to word doc
    Set objDoc = GetObject(strMSWordFileName)

    objDoc.Application.Visible = True
    t = 0
    For Each objWordTable In objDoc.Tables 'step through tables
        t = t + 1
        'iterate cells
        For Each objWordCell In objWordTable.Range.Cells
            Select Case GetCellText(objWordCell)
                Case "Type:", "Category:", "Name:", "AlternateName:", "ID:", "Class:", "Width:", "Text:", "Text-Align:", "Border-Radius:", "Margin:"
                strLabel = UCase(Trim(GetCellText(objWordCell)))
                c = 1
                bFound = False
                Do Until sh.Cells(1, c).Value = ""
                    If sh.Cells(1, c).Value = strLabel Then
                        bFound = True
                        Exit Do
                    End If
                    c = c + 1
                If Not bFound Then
                    sh.Cells(1, c).Value = strLabel
                End If
                strData = Trim(GetCellText(objWordTable.cell(objWordCell.RowIndex, objWordCell.ColumnIndex + 1)))
                sh.Cells(r, c).Value = strData
            End Select 'shaded cell?
        Next objWordCell
        Debug.Print "Successfully copied table # " & t & " from " & strMSWordFileName
    Next objWordTable
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
        Debug.Print Err.Number & " " & Err.Description
    End If

End Sub

    Set rng = cl.Range

    If rng.FormFields.Count >0 1 Then

        For I = 1 To rng.FormFields.Count
            arrData(I) = rng.FormFields(I).Result
        Next I

Do you mean you want to skip non-blank rows in Excel?

If so, then before:

sh.Cells(r, c).Value = strData

Open in new window

you could add:
While sh.Cells(r,c)<>""
