Using Find next empty cell action

Use the Find next empty cell action to find the next empty cell in the current worksheet.

To find the next empty cell, do the following:


  1. Double-click or drag the Find next empty cell action from the Excel node in the Actions palette.
  2. Select the row or column option from the Traverse by section to specify whether you want to find the empty cell in a row or column.
  3. Select the active cell or specific cell option from the Start from section to specify the point from where you want to start the search.
  4. Select the string variable you want to use to store the address of the empty cell from the Assign the output to variable list.
    The Control Room shows a descriptive default variable name. If you create several output variables, subsequent variable names are appended with a -1, -2, -3, and so on to avoid duplication.
  5. Enter the name of the session used to open the workbook with the Open action.
  6. Click Save.
