Excel 2020: Skip Blanks While Pasting

Excel 2020: Skip Blanks While Pasting

A mysterious part of the Paste Special dialog is the Skip Blanks feature. What does it do? Say that you have a list of existing values. In another column, you have updates for some of those values but not all of them. In the next figure, select D2:D10 and Copy.
There are numbers in B2:B10. You want to update four of the numbers, so you type replacement values in D2, D4, D7, and D10. Select the entire range D2:D10 and Ctrl+C to copy.
Select the original values in B2:B10. Do a Paste Special and select Skip Blanks.
In the Paste Special dialog, choose the box for Skip Blanks.
The 87 in D2 overwrites the 92 in B2, but Excel does not clear out the 51 in B3.
The four numbers are updated. But anything next to a blank cell remains untouched.
