# Calculating Sum Of Cells Only Where Adjacent Cells Are Blank

Oct 17, 2008

Code:.....

I am constantly editing this (we currently have over 100 accounts) and therefore the totals are changing.I have a formula for Total but I need formulas for the other two, based on when the cells in columns F and J are blank or have dates in them: For active, the total is the sum of all numbers in column M but only when there is a date in column F and a BLANK in column J. For yet to enter, the total is the sum of all the numbers in column M but only when both column F and column J are blank. At the moment, my accounts run from row 6 to row 142, with the first line of totals in row 145, however this is constantly expanding.

## 2003 - Merging Four Adjacent Cells With Text And/or Blank Cells

Jun 14, 2008

I am trying to merge text, in four adjacent cells in the same row (say cells A1,A2,A3 and A4), into a single cell (say cell A5).

I would like a comma or full stop and then a space between each item merged (cell A5).

The text to be merged may appear in any one of the four cells (cells A1 to A4). Those cells without text are blank.

Only where all 4 cells are blank, will I need cell 'A5' to indicate this.

The formula needs to be relative as I will need to copy the formula down the spreadsheet so that it applies to additional rows.

## Calculating A Sum On Non Adjacent Cells Across A Row

Jun 17, 2009

See the attatched spreadsheet. I can not seem to figure out a formula that will calculate the totals for each type of data.

My goal is to have a sum for each location for # of audits, Critical Counts, and Major Counts.

## Sum 3 Non-adjacent Cells Some Are Blank?

Mar 5, 2014

I am trying to sum 3 non-adjacent cells. Some cells are blank, not always in the same row / column, and all are the result of vlookups. I tried: E = I+M+Q, but the result is #value!

-In column E (respectively F, G, H) that's where I want the result of the sum

-In column I (respectively, J, K, L), depending on the row, some cells are blank and some cells contain a number. That's the first term of my sum.

-In column M (respectively N, O, P), I have also blank and non-blank cells, depending on the row. This is the second term of my sum.

-In column Q (respectively R, S, T), also blank or non-blank cells. This is the third term of my sum.

I will need to extend this formula to F=J+N+R, G=K+O+S, H=L+P+T, and probably also a sum with 4 terms where E=I+M+Q+U etc.

## Only Countif Cells Adjacent To Columns Contains A Blank?

Apr 22, 2014

I have a formula (below) where I want it to count the cells that contain a date that is less than or equal to today, but only when the adjacent cell is blank. The latter part of the formula works, but I'm struggling to tell it to only do the count when cells in column I are blank;

=IF('QS12'!I10:I3120="",COUNTIF('QS12'!H10:H3120,">="&TODAY()))

## Fill In Blank Cells If Adjacent Cell Has Value Then Do For Next Set Of Data

Feb 19, 2014

I'm trying every conceivable angle I can think of in vba and coming up empty. What I have is a spreadsheet similar to this:

Column A Column B

1. 1234567
2. 2345678
3. 3456789
4. 4567890 A0001
5.
6. 9876543
7. 9876543
8. 9876543
9. 1234578
10. 3456789 A0002

What I would like to do is to fill in B1:B3 with A0001 and B6:B9 with A0002. The number of rows in each set of data will vary, but the identifier (A000X) will always be located in the row in column B adjacent to the last entry for that set of data in column A and there will always be empty cells between data sets. The number of data sets will also vary.

## Stopping Data Entry If Adjacent 5 Cells Are Blank

Feb 10, 2009

I've got six columns with drop-down lists in every cell. I don't want column six to be selectable if the first five drop downs don't have data in them too.

Equally, I want the data in column six to be undone if columnns 1-5 are then unselected. Can I do this?

I know that using data validation or VBA is an option but I'm not sure exactly how to set it up this way. I also don't want anyone screwing with what can and can't be entered according to these rules - I want to keep it watertight!

## Delete Rows Based On Adjacent Blank Cells

Aug 8, 2008

I would like a macro that deletes rows based on having two blank cells in adjacent columns. I have achieved this with the following code however i need it to only delete rows below a certain row. How would i achieve this?

Sub DeleteBlankARows()
Dim r As Long
For r = Cells(Rows.Count, 30).End(xlUp).Row To 1 Step -1
If Cells(r, 3) = "" And Cells(r, 4) = "" Then Rows(r).Delete
Next r
End Sub

Jan 5, 2014

I have a workbook with 30 worksheets. Each sheet has 84 rows of data (start in 15 columns (A to O). I would like to create a summary sheet that only shows the most important data from each sheet.

The summary sheet would have 12 lines of headers and formatted crap at the top.
The Summary sheet header columns would be:

Site (A), Date (B) Health (C), Status (D), Critical (E), Task (F),
Dependencies (G), Owner (H), T-Date (I), Task Date (J), Mitigation Date (I)

The data in the sheets are not in that order, of course.

That
1. puts the name of the sheet I am copying from in column A
2. the deadline date in Column B (that date is always in C10 of each worksheet)
3. and copies Cells from Column A,B,G,H,I,O in any row in which the value in A is not "good" into columns C through H. I would like to paste those rows into the summary sheet. I have code that loops through the sheets and rows in each sheet to find the rows to copy. I can copy cell values directly from the active sheet to the summary sheet, but because I am copying a cell at a time, it takes 7 minutes. Yes I am impatient :)

Here is the code snippet where the copying is done:

Dim sh As Worksheet 'current worksheet
Dim DestSh As Worksheet 'worksheet in which to paste summary
Dim Last As Long
Dim CopyRow As Long 'row to copy
Dim LastCopyRow As Long

[Code] ........

ExitTheSub:

Application.Goto Sheets("KMARollup").Cells(1)
End Sub

I think there must be a way to use ranges to build an array of cell values and paste only once but I am lost here.

## Highlighting Cells If Specific Data Appears In Adjacent Cells

Mar 18, 2014

I have a couple of spreadsheets that has several columns each containing several hundred thousand rows of codes. To quickly analyze this data, I am trying to come up with a conditional formatting formula to highlight the respective cells when specific values occur next to each other. A particular code will show up in many cells, but the code that is the respective adjacent cell is always different. I need to know when row A contains, for example, '9928559' and row B contains '36415RT'.

## Merge Date From Adjacent Cells Inbetween Current Cells

Nov 17, 2009

I have 2 columns of data and want to be able to merge as follows

COL A COL B
4123567 123.45
4125467 900.56
4356456 456.32

need to get result of

COL a
4123567
123.45
4125467
900.56
4356456
456.32

## Color Cells Based On Adjacent Cells Being Empty & Add Text

Apr 2, 2008

I’m trying to make my life a bit easier, by adding a few macros and formulas to the spreadsheet (Everything was done completely manually before I got here!!!).
What I would like to do is take two columns, which contain a start and end time for work shifts, and colour them GREEN once I have entered a name in the Worker column (Along side the two with the time), and also to fill a cell with a Yes or a No. I’m aware of auto conditioning, and I’ve tried to have a play to get this to work, but I just can’t work it out.
I have posted a link to an image which shows what I want. I hope I've explained it well enough!

## Fill Empty Column Cells With Reference To Adjacent Cells

Aug 11, 2008

I would like a macro that when run, finds empty cells in a column within the used range and fills them with the same formula in the other cells in the same column but relative to the row.

I have a basic understanding of VBA so if someone can set me on the right track i'll have a go myself as i appreciate this would take a while to write out from scratch.

## Ignore Blank Cells And Truly Blank Cells In Named Range?

Jan 13, 2014

Ok so my named range looks like this:

[Code]....

However, I want to ignore the "" cells and the truly blank cells... However, I think all of them will have "" since I have this formula in all of the ones I'm putting in the range:

[Code]....

How do I go about getting these results into a named range so I can use it on validation since validation only seems to ignore truly blank cells and not the "" ones.

## Total Cells Based On Adjacent Cells

Jun 28, 2008

I have multiple sheets cataloging multiple vehicles' mileages in multiple areas (one sheet per month). I want to reorganize this data by Vehicle ID rather than month.

Here is an example spreadsheet to help explain

I have attempted this by writing this formula ...

## Calculating Cells Used Based On Another Cells Data

Mar 6, 2008

I have a bit of an odd issue I need to solve. I use an Excel spreadsheet to track daily income for the store over a months' period. I have each day set to give me a rough estimate of profitability for that day. I also want to create a cell that tells me how much we've made so far, based on the number of business days so far in the current month. For example:

Day 1, \$1500, \$800 in expenses (monthly expenses averaged over the month, plus labor costs for the day), so a total of \$700 profit.

Day 2, \$1700, \$749 in expenses (same as before), so a total of \$951 profit.

The formula I'm using to calculate that isn't an issue, but I have the same formula for every single day, and each day has it's own cell with the estimated profitability for that particular day. In two other cells, I put the total number of business days in that month (in this case, 26), and in another cell I put the current number of business days we've had this month (in this case, 4), which is used partially to calculate the other cells. I want to use them to create another cell to contain the estimated profitability based solely on the number of business days out of the month we've had.

So E3 through E33 contain the individual days, I want to calculate - since we've only had 4 business days - what E3 through E7 would total. When I change it to 5 business days, i want it to calculate E3 through E8. So if we've had 4 business days, it only calculates the totals from the first 4 cells, if 5 business days, then the first 5 cells, etc, etc.

I can sort of picture it in my head, but I can't seem to find the necessary equation for it. It may require a macro, but I'd rather use a formula if possible. I'm not a big fan of macros.

## Sum Cells Adjacent To LARGE Cells

Feb 27, 2014

I have 500+ rows of data in column A (Credit), with corresponding data in column B (Cash). I use "=SUM(LARGE(A:A,{1,2,3}))" in C1 to find and sum the three largest "Credit" entries, how do I sum the corresponding cash values associated with those three large credit entries?

## VBA / Selecting Cells Of Certain Value AND Also Adjacent Cells

Jun 20, 2012

I have two simple columns of data: one with names (Column A) and the other with numbers (Column B).

I am looking for the most efficient way of selecting cells in Column B of a certain value and also selecting the cells to the left of those selected cells in Column A.

I have the current code based on SpecialCells, it works most of the time but for some reason it's buggy and sometimes returns an error. Is there another way doing this without using Special Cells?

Code:
Sub SelectbyValue()
Dim Cell As Object
Dim FoundCells As Range 'Range that's found
Dim WorkRange As Range 'Range to search
Range("E1:F4").ClearContents

[code]....

## Fill In Blank Cells Referencing Non-Blank Cells Above

Apr 17, 2008

I have sporadic cell values in a column. I will be describing the lamen logic I use to fill in these blanks manually. Find the first nonblank cell in the column, then look for the next nonblank cell in the column. I count the number of blank cells in between. If even # of blank cells, then I give the first half of the blanks the value of the first nonblank cell and the second half of the blank cells the value of the next nonblanck. If odd # of blank cells, then I do the same with the exception that the odd cell that falls in the middle will be randomly designated the value of the either first or second nonblank cell.

## Highlight Repeat Cells In One Column If Cells In The Adjacent Column Contain Specific Text?

Apr 14, 2014

I am trying to find a solution for highlighting cells in a column that are repeats, ie. >3. I also need these cells to only be highlighted if the adjacent cell in the next column contains specific text. I have tried using conditional formatting with a countifs formula to no avail.

## Excel 2003 :: Conditional Format Top / Mid / Bottom 33% Of Cells But Ignoring Blank Cells

Mar 25, 2012

I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....

Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003)
Top 34%:
=IF(INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D\$38)*34%)>0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*34%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*67%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*100%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))

## Excel 2010 :: Color Fill A Range Of Cells If Specific Cells Not Blank

Feb 7, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 and basically i am trying to fill a range of cell with a green color if any value was enter in a specific cells. Example: I would like to fill range: A10:c13 with a green color (regardless of the cells content in this range) if a value was entered in cell C10 or C11 or C12 or C13.

I've tried conditional formatting but unfortunately I'll have to apply formatting for every cell and for a range of over hundred cells is not efficient.

## Count Number Of Cells In Column Per Month Ignore Blank Cells?

Jan 13, 2014

I have this formula which is counting the number of cells in a column that fall within each calender month.

However, if there is a formula at the bottom of column B and C that yield a "", the formula breaks.

In my workbook, B/C:133 have a formula =""

I will need the formula in column E to work if there is a formula that yields a "" in column B and C.

## Change Empty Cells To Blank Cells (need To Use Skip Blanks Function)

Mar 8, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where a column has many cells being empty and others with values. I need to use copy-paste skip blanks to another column so it only overwrites cells that contains values. BUT The cells in the column appears to be empty, not blank, when I try use the copy-paste skip blanks it doesnt work. However, when I press delete in every empty cell the copy-paste skip blanks works for those cells.

Do you got a fast method to make all the empty cells blank?

## Copy Data In Non-blank Cells Within Range And Paste Into Cells On Another Worksheet

Jan 19, 2012

I have data in some of the cells within range A26:A39

These cells are populated via an IF function on another worksheet. Even though the cells appear blank (as in the value returned is ""), there is a formula in these cells. I think it's called formula blank?

I am looking for a way to copy the data from the cells within the range which are not blank (ie: not = "") and paste this data elsewhere on the sheet in a list with no blank spaces in between.

I anticipate that there will be 4 non blank cells within this range.

Ideally I would have data from the nonblank cells copied and pasted to cells
A40
A41
A42
A43

## Count Number Of Blank Cells In Range Starting And Ending Will Cells That Match String Values

May 13, 2013

I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.

## Macro To Combine Cells In A Row To 1 Cell While Skipping Blank Cells

Jul 2, 2014

I need to combined all non blank cells in a given row into 1 cell. But within each row i have 5 phases that the values fall into, which is denoted by the 1st charter 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. for example, in a given row i have 1-a, 1-c, 2-d, and 1-f and these values occurs in non consecutive columns starting from G to ALR. I need a macro that sorts these values in one of the 5 phases. So in another sheet the macro would combined [1-a 1-c 1-f] in Phase 1 and [2-d] in phase 2. and if there are other phases it would put them in the appropriate cell.

See attached workbook : Work Order Summary Sheet.xlsxâ€Ž

## Macro To Combine Cells In Row To 1 Cell While Skipping Blank Cells

Jul 17, 2014

However, in addition to what the macro already does, it is possible to add another work sheet in the same work book that outputs the values in separate cells? It also has to output the data in order: for example, in the first work sheet the data is inputted at random and has spaces but the macro will have to remove all the blank cells and output them in order based on the first value in the test string, 1, 2, 3, 4, and then 5;

input:

blank 3-x Blank 1-y blank 2-z 1-k

output:

1-k 1-x 2-z 3-y

## Ignore Blank Cells Zeros And Error Cells From MIN Function?

Oct 24, 2013

I have a spreadsheet for which I have to set up a formula to get the minimum value from a range of cells, but that range can include blank cells, errors (#DIV/0) and zeros, all of which I want to be ignored. I can work out how to ignore EITHER the zeros

(=MIN(IF(C10:G100,C10:G10)),

or the error cells

(=MIN(IF(ISNUMBER(C9:G9),C9:G9)),

How to exclude both. If I try to combine both of these exclusion criteria it doesn't work and I end up with the answer #DIV/0, which is one of the values I want it to ignore.

## Color Blank Cells In A Row Between 2 Cells With Specific Number

Jan 31, 2013

I have a similar question regarding coloring of empty cells between two cells with specific numbers as posted in below thread : [URL] .....

This is exactly what I want. But here I have some problem with formula.

=COUNTIF(A1:Z1,1)=1

Above formula could pick cell value 1 and color the empty cells in a row between the cells having value=1. But if I want to use the same formatting for other numbers like 2 or 3 it doesn't work.

For example in row(A1:Z1) I have A1=1, D1=1, and F1=2, K1=2, and O1=3, U1=3

I required multiple conditional formatting that could color the cells based on values first from A to D then from F to K and finally from O to U.

I'm using above formatting it works with cells having values 1 but its not working for 2, 3 or any other cells values.

I have already tried replacing 1 in above formula with 2 and 3 but it doesn't work.
