In Excel you can have a data set that comes from an external source which isn’t always formatted to your liking.

One of the most common things you may encounter are blank cells in your Excel data which can hinder your analysis, especially if you are using a Pivot Table to analyze the data.

To find these annoying blank cells in Excel you will need to highlight all your data set (CTRL+*) and bring up the Go To shortcut:  CTRL+G > Special > Blanks.

Then you can fill in the blank cells with a color red and filter by that same color to drill down to these blank cells and take some formatting action.

I show you how easy this can be done below.
