Hello

I have a problem. So let say i have this set of data set, and some of them are blank. I want to replace these blanks with a 0, so i tried using go to special and change it to blank, it did not work for me. However it only work if i clear the blank cell with a backspace, then i tried it again and it work. I was wondering if there away where i dont have to backspace every blank cell to use the go to special?

It work, but do you know if i can just replace the blank cell automatically and directly to the column that has data already? A better way of putting it is that find and replace the blank cell with zero.

yeah i tried using find and replace...but it did not work for me. Its giving me something like "can't search for it" i think it is because my blank cell has information on it. it only work if i backspace it or something.
