Specifying that a cell has no value Numerical/text ?

Posted by Dominic on March 28, 2001 3:30 AM

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
On Error GoTo Lastline
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then GoTo Saveline Else GoTo Lastline
End Sub

With the above code a "spacebar" entry has a value as well as text. How do I specify that the Cell must have no value whether it be text or numerical

Hi Dominic

I may have stuffed this up but, try this:

On Error GoTo Lastline
If Not IsEmpty(ActiveCell) Then GoTo Lastline Else GoTo Saveline

Hi Dave
It still reads that the cell has an entry when there is a space in it. What I am really trying to achieve is to test whether the cell value is numerical or text, and if numerical perform one action and if text another.

Have you tried:

If IsNumeric(ActiveCell) Then NumericAction
