Search First Non-blank Cell To Return A Value In Another Column?

Jun 9, 2014

Want to look in one column and find the first non-blank numerical value, then have it return a value from another column.

Used to nest multiple IF functions together from different cells, but it seems overly complicated and time consuming. Sometimes I have over 30 cells to check.

For example, if Column A contains weekly sales data by week, entered weekly, and Column E has corresponding comparison data from the previous year. I want to enter a formula to check the first row that has sales data entered and have it match up the comparison value in the other column.

Find First Non Blank Cell In Row Then Return Column Header?

Jan 17, 2014

I have this table, which can be seen as a basic custom gantt chart: KLRWo.png

And I would like to fill the A column with start dates, based on the first filled cell of the range on the same row, and the header value of its respective column (row 1). It's easier to show my expected result than write it actually:

Find First Blank Cell In Column & Return Adjacent Date Less Than Or Equal To Today

Apr 4, 2008

how to make the data look like a table with three columns. Other than the date, it is space delimited. I have a tracking spreadsheet where Column A is populated with dates for the year. Column C contains daily values.

I don't always start entering daily values on the first day of the year, e.g., this year the first value in Column C corresponds to March 9. All values in Column C are contiguous - there are no blank cells until the value in Column A is greater than today's date code. I would like to use a formula (rather than VBA) to look down Column C and find the first non-blank entry where the value in Column A is less than or equal to today(). In this case, the formula should return the value for March 9, 2008.

Return Contents Of 1 Cell Based On Contents Of Another Cell?

Mar 12, 2014

I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.

Making Contents Of Cell Blank Upon IF Statement

Feb 10, 2008

I have a conditional IF statement, where I want the content of the cell to be blank if the result of the IF statement is false, ie I want the content of the cell to be as if there were no formula in the cell (this if so that the formula COUNTA(Sheet1!$B:$B) only counts the cells where the result is TRUE).

For example, IF(A1=1,1,"") where A1 1, the content of the cell will have something in it (a space), and won't be blank.

Return Blank If Concatenating With Blank Cell?

Apr 3, 2014

in one column of my spreadsheet and it is returning the correct concatenation for the appropriate lines. However, I wish to have the column's cells return an answer of blank (" ") if B15, B16... etc is blank. In other words, at the moment, a correct answer would read something like '1810sd0000' C10 and B15 used, while an incorrect answer would still display '1810', but I want it to be a blank cell.

How To Return Cell Contents If It Contains Partial Text

Jan 2, 2014

Below is a small sample of Column A from a spreadsheet I'm working with. All cells in the column begin with a 6 digit number:

115383_BOSTON
115384_NEW_YORK
115385_PORTLAND
115402_LOS_ANGELES
115403_WACO
115010_SAINT_PAUL
115011_SAN_DIEGO
115130_WEST_NYACK
115021_CHAPEL_HILL

What formula would allow me to enter only a 6 digit number and return the entire cell contents, i.e, search for 115403 and get a return of 115403_WACO ? I have tried INDEX and MATCH, but I'm not getting the results I need.

Return Pictures Based On Cell Contents?

Jul 25, 2014

I have inlcuded my workbook that I use for tracking the NFL season and I'd like to add in some team logos just to make it look a little cooler.

The attached workbook includes three sheets, the first of which uses a drop-down for selecting picks. The second sheet has the team logos and the third sheet feeds off the first.

I'd like for team logos to populate into the third sheet based on what is selected in the first sheet.

I've already tried a few methods, all unsuccessfully. I tried this [URL] which was a great idea but it didn't allow for the same image to be repeated potentially 100 times. I also tried a method involving named ranges and indirect lookups to the linked picture image but that would require a different named range for every person and every pick which isn't feasible.

if it's possible to just do a massive nested if statement with a vlookup to return an image but I haven't been successful in that either.

Return Value Based In Contents Of Another Cell With A Twist?

Jan 7, 2012

I would like cell CM2 to look at cell G2 and get the value there. Here is where it gets interesting. I would like it to reference sheet "LookupTables" in column A.

Cell G2 will be a 4 digit number.

Cells in column A of sheet "LookupTables" will be formatted like this: 3 digit number-4 digit number-4 digit number, like this "001-0001-0001".

If cell G2 exists in column A of the LookupTables sheet, (but it needs to ignore the first 4 digits and the last 5 digits of that number) then it should return that value in cell CM2. I would like it to look through the entire column A of the LookupTables sheet and return all numbers that match the above criteria, and separate them with a comma.

So, if G2 is 0001 and column A of the LookupTables sheet contains several values including:

001-0001-0006
004-0001-0187
098-0001-0874
098-0002-4356 (it should ignore this since the middle numbers don't match the value of G2)

then CM2 should display: 001-0001-0006,004-0001-0187,089-0001-0874

Also, if there are no matches, then it should just return a blank cell.

Sumif: Return The Contents Of The Respective Cell

Nov 5, 2009

In Column A, in each cell in rows 1-10, there is various text that may or may not include "ABC" and "DEFG" as the first four letters. In Column B, rows 1-10, there is numerical data. What I would like to do in Column C, rows 1-10, is place a formula that would return the contents of the respective cell in Column B, but only where the first three or four letters in the respective cell in column A is "ABC" or "DEFG".

Find Value & Return Contents Of Offset Cell

Sep 3, 2006

On Sheet2 I have a table where I want M2 to do the following:

1.) Look at cell A2 where the name "John" is and B2 where the name "smith" is.

2.) Look at sheet1 and look in B2 and C2 for "John" and "smith"

3.) Once it matches the name, place the contents of sheet1, cell I2 into sheet2, cell M2.

So in short, match the name on sheet2 to the name on sheet1 and return the number in I2 to M2 on sheet2.

Maybe combining the persons name in to one column would make it easier?

Automatically Put Quotes Around Contents Of Every Cell Including Blank Cells?

Feb 13, 2014

I'm migrating data from Financisto for Android to CashTrails for iOS, and I need to format my CSV file a specific way for conversion to a CashTrails file.

I'd like to do the following in Excel 2013 (I have access to other versions if I need to):

1. Highlight a range of cells (i.e. A1-H20)

2. Apply following action: IF cell has data, add " to beginning of cell and " to end of cell, AND IF cell has no data, place "" in cell.

This can be done, right? I'm desperate!

It would look like this in Notepad.
Before:
Date,Time,Amount,Category,Tags,Account
12/31/13,12:00 PM,$3.99,General,,Checking
12/31/13,12:30 PM,$5.00,Shopping,gift,Cash

After:
"Date","Time","Amount","Category","Tags","Account"
"12/31/13","12:00 PM","$34.99","General","","Checking"
"12/31/13","12:30 PM","$5.00","Shopping","gift","Cash"

Search For Text Within Cell Then Return Contents Of That Cell?

Jun 19, 2014

So right now I have a spreadsheet that looks something like this:

A
B
C
D

[Code]....

As you can see, the stock names are slightly different in columns A & C (CORP. vs CORP, CO vs CO., etc). I need a formula in column D that searches column A for the first word in column C, and then retrieves the contents of that cell. I want to do this because I will then use a vlookup in column E to get the ticker for the stock.

Right now I have: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(LEFT(C1,FIND(" ",C1)),A:A,1)),A:A,"")

This formula searches column A for EXXON, but does not return the contents of the cell. Instead, it returns the contents of a different cell in the column.

Clear Contents Of A Cell Of Row A, If Cell In Row I Is Blank

May 6, 2009

I need to clear the contents of the cell in Row "A", if the cell in Row "I" is blank.

The issue, is there are roughly 1200 excel documents in a folder and subfolders. That is a painful amount of opening workbooks, sort ascending and deleting. Not on my top 10 list of things to do.

If someone could create a code to do this, and loop it through a folder (I can move all the files to a single folder manually, not an issue)

In cell B1 I want to reference where the cell in column F is "Y" then use respective date in column E.

e.g.

If i have "Y" in cell F1 then in B1 I want to show E1 (25/06/2012).
If i have "Y" in cell F2 then in B1 I want to show E2 (02/07/2012).
If i have "Y" in cell F3 then in B1 I want to show E3 (09/07/2012).

Advanced Filter To Return Rows W/blank Column

I have a worksheet which shows multiple tests and whether they are completed or not[code]Test 1 Person1 Test 2 Person2 Test 3...Person12. I want to search for a specific test, e.g. pH which could be in any of the "Test" columns but only return it if it is not completed. The "Person" columns will be blank if no one completed the test.

I set up the Advanced Filter criteria with all the appropriately labeled columns and for the Person columns, I put ="" but it is returning all rows which have pH in them whether they are completed or not. What should I be putting in the Person columns of the criteria to only return those rows which have the pH test but it is not completed. I attached an example of the criteria range and the filter window to help clarify (the full spreadsheet is huge)

Column Number Of Last Column In A Row Where Cell Contents Greater Than 0

Jun 24, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with rows of data. I need a formula that will return the column number of the last column in a row where there is a value >0.

Let's say that cells A1:F1 contain values. Some have values of 0 while others have values >0. I need a formula in cell G1 that will tell me the column number of the last value >0.

A B C D E F
0 2 5 0 6 0

So the formula in G1 would return a value of 5, which corresponds to column E.

I am using the "IF" formula to pull in data into a forms section. I then save the forms section as a CSV file.

When the IF statement returns the "false" value, it is looking to pull over a "blank" cell. When that happems, a "0" pulls over. I tried to put a "" in the blank cell, but while the output of the formulaa looks "Blank" when I convert the tab to CSV, the output is a quote mark ".
I need the formula to display a real BLANK cell or something that acts like a blank cell

Return First Non-blank Cell In Row

Oct 5, 2007

I'm trying to do several things. I have 6 columns (A:F) with column headers and 12 rows of data and not every cell has a number as its content. Some cells are blank. I have attached my file.

Using Row 2 as my example:
1.) I want to return the contents of the FIRST non-blank cell in the range (A2:F2) in cell I2.
2.) If I2 is not blank, then I want to return the column header (text) which corresponds to the resulting number content of cell I2.
3.) I want to return the contents of NEXT non-blank cell in A2:F2 in cell K2.
4.) If K2 is not blank, then return the column header (text) which corresponds to the resulting number of K2.

I will then repeat the 3rd & 4th scenarios in columns L thru S.

What Iím trying to do is place all non-blank data up in the first-foremost columns (H thru S) as I possibly can so I can use the data from these new columns (H thru S) as my merge fields in a Word document.
