Summary: Use the countblank function to determine the number of cells in a range that are blank.
If you need to determine how many blank cells exists in a range in a Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet, the =countblank function makes this task easy.
RANGE is a range of cells to scan.
For example, assume the following spreadsheet of a person's yearly sales report, broken down by quarter. The spreadsheet will notify the end-user of how many more entries are needed before, presumably, calculations can occur with the data.
1 1st Quarter 23
2 2nd Quarter
3 3rd Quarter 45
4 4th Quarter 28
6 ="Values Required: " & COUNTBLANK(B1:B4)
