VBA To Insert Zeroes Into Blank Cells

What This VBA Code Does

If you do any data loading to databases and prepare/clean that data in Excel, you have more than likely run into instances where you need to load zeroes. The below VBA macro is a handy subroutine that will instantly insert the value of 0 into any blank cells within your selection.

VBA Code:

Sub BlankCells_InsertZeroes()
'PURPOSE:Add Zero to All Blank Cells within Selection

Dim BlankCells As Range

'Ensure a cell range is selected
  If TypeName(Selection) <> "Range" Then Exit Sub

'Optimize Code
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False

'Store all blank cells in variable
  On Error Resume Next
  Set BlankCells = Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks)
  On Error GoTo 0

'Change the value of all blank cells
  If Not BlankCells Is Nothing Then
    BlankCells.Value = 0
  End If

End Sub
