Delete rows with blank cells in a certain column using VBA in Microsoft Excel

In this article, we will create a macro to delete incomplete records which contain blank cells.

Raw data consists of some sample data, which includes Name, Age and Gender. It also contains some blank cells.


We want to remove those records which contain blank cells.


Logic explanation

We have created “BlankRowDeletion” macro to delete incomplete records. It searches and selects blank cells and then deletes the entire row which contains a blank cell.

Code explanation

Set Rng = Range("A9:C" & LastRow)

The above code is used to create a range object for the given data.


The above code is used to select blank cells within the specified range.


The above code is used to delete the entire row for the selected cell.


Please follow below for the code

Option Explicit

Sub BlankRowDeletion()

'Declaring variables
Dim LastRow As Long
Dim Rng As Range

'Getting row number of last cell
LastRow = Range("A1").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row

'Selecting all data
Set Rng = Range("A9:C" & LastRow)

'Selecting Blank cells

'Deleting complete row


End Sub

  1. I tried to use the code in this article and it deleted every row in the spreadsheet. I am trying to delete all the rows in the spreadsheet that have no values in the cells in column G so I modified the code to use that range. I think it is very close though. Thank you!!

  2. Thank you for this. I don't use Excel macros often and this was just what I needed. Easy to adapt for my purposes and it worked on the first try.

  3. "Consider the Following code to batch-delete the unused names in a workbook.

    Dim i As Integer

    For i = 1 To ActiveWorkbook.Names.Count
    Next i "
