Envision two rows, one up top and one below it. The cell up top is blank but the one below has 9/24/12.

How can I create a function that will make the top one copy the value of the cell below it if it is empty?

P.S. I'm not great with scripts.


Assuming that cell A1 is the top row and A2 is the next row, put the following formula in cell A1.

=if(A2="", "New Value", A2)
