Select Special Cells for Microsoft Excel is a program that allows you to quickly find all cells that meet your criteria. This handy add-in extends the standard Microsoft Excel “Go to Special” dialog with essential options to select cells by value :
– Select cells based on a numeric value, find the max / min value in a range.
– Find dates within the specified range.
– Select cells of a particular type: constants, objects, comments, formulas or conditional formatting.
Use the Go To command to quickly find and select all cells that contain specific types of data, such as formulas. Also, use Go To to find only the cells that meet specific criteria,—such as the last cell on the worksheet that contains data or formatting.
Follow these steps:
- Begin by doing either of the following:
- To search the entire worksheet for specific cells, click any cell.
- To search for specific cells within a defined area, select the range, rows, or columns that you want. For more information, see Select cells, ranges, rows, or columns on a worksheet.

Fill Blank Cells in Excel Column
Some Microsoft Excel worksheets contain cells that have been left blank, in order to make the headings and subheadings easier to read. However, if you want to sort or filter the list, you need to fill in the blanks, by copying the value from the first filled cell above the blank. Follow the instructions on this page to fill the blank cells, manually, or with an Excel macro.
Fill Blank Cells From Above
In the screenshot below, cells that have been left blank, so the report headings and subheadings are easier to read. If you need to sort or filter this data, you need to fill the blanks cells, by copying the value from the first filled cell above the blank
To fill the blank cells manually, you will select all the blanks, enter a simple formula in each cell, then convert the formulas to values. Watch the video below, to see the steps, and the written steps are below the video.
What is the Go To Special function in Excel?
The Go To Special function in Excel allows you to quickly select all cells that meet certain criteria, such as cells containing:
- Formulas (numbers, text, logicals, errors)
- Constants (numbers, text, logicals, errors)
- Blank cells
Press Ctrl + Q on any cell to bring up the Arixcel Explorer window. It will show the formula components with their values and locations. You can use the arrow keys to explore the logical tree. Arixcel Explorer will be highlighting the selected formula parts and navigating to the referenced cells on the spreadsheet.
- You can continue working with the spreadsheet while the window is open and you can open as many Arixcel Explorer windows as you like. You can close all the windows by clicking on Excel Ribbon > Arixcel > Close All.
- Showing the target locations of VLOOKUP, OFFSET, INDEX and INDIRECT, as well as the cells selected by SUMIF, SUMIFS, COUNTIF, MIN, MAX, MAXIFS, etc.
- Showing the cells selected by logical filters inside array formulae. For example, the cells in column B corresponding to the year 2018 in column A, will be shown for the following formula:
- You can click on the formula in the bottom box to select its part and navigate to the relevant location, and you can Ctrl + click to select multiple parts.
- The logical choices of functions IF, IFS, CHOOSE, SWITCH are shown in bold.
- After closing the window, press Ctrl + Backspace to navigate back to the last explored cell. You can go as far as 100 “explorations” back.
- All highlight colours and keyboard shortcuts are customisable via Arixcel tab > Keyboard Shortcuts > Setup.
- Activate the first workbook, worksheet or select the block of cells that you want to compare and press Ctrl + Shift + S. Then activate or select the other item and press Ctrl + Shift + C. Arixcel Explorer will compare the two items and show any differences in their formulae in the same cell locations, highlighting specific formula parts in red and allowing you to navigate easily to the respective cells and back.
- You can compare either formulae or values, and for formula comparison you can choose whether to ignore any differences in inputs or not.
- You can compare multiple worksheets, or multiple blocks of cells in one go. Just select several items before pressing Ctrl + Shift + C. For blocks of cells, you can select the top-left cells only.
- If Arixcel Explorer detects that the worksheets are not aligned with each other, click on the Align button (second slide) to insert alignment rows and columns automatically. You can remove these rows later by clicking on the Arixcel tab > Comparison > Remove Alignment Rows.
- The adjacent differences are grouped into blocks for the ease of reference.
- While in the comparison window, you can press Ctrl + Tab to switch between the two sides and Ctrl + Q to explore the cell’s formula further.
- If you need to make a change to the spreadsheet, press Ctrl + Backspace to return to Excel, make the change, press Ctrl + Backspace again to return to the comparison window, and then Alt + R to recompare.
