Hello there,

i had the same question.  i'm sure by now you've found the solution but i will answer the post in hopes that it may help other newbies.

From Datasheet view select the replace tab

      in the "find what" field leave blank.  

      in the "replace with" field enter "some text"

      in the "search range" field enter "current column, row or all"

      in the "direction" field enter "all" 

      select both "match case" and "match entire field"

 the find should find all blank entries.  once those entries are found, you can then select "replace" or "replace all".  be careful with the replace all, i would suggest testing a single row before updating all.

I hope this helps someone else....
