Hi there,

I am trying to count the number of blank cells in a column.

So far I have:

Sub findrange()
Dim lastrow As Long

lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row

Range("h12") = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountBlank(Range("B2" & lastrow))

However this gives me an incorrect figure. The lastrow reference in the last line is where i think the problem is, but on its own it correctly selects the last cell in column B, so im not sure why the reference is wrong.

Any help would be appreciated.

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

You have a typo.

Instead of:
Rich (BB code):
Range("h12") = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountBlank(Range("B2" & lastrow))
try:
Rich (BB code):
Range("h12") = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountBlank(Range("B2:B" & lastrow))

The last part should be "B2:B" & lastrow
