## 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.

## 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.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells

Mar 1, 2014

I have a row of cells, say, A1 to G1. I wish to sum the values in cells, say, A1, C1, F1 and G1 only. The chosen cells can have values 0, >0 or Blank. How do I sum the values and ignore the blank cell(s) without getting #VALUE!? Filling the blank cells with "0" is not an option.

(Any blank cells may have a value added at a later date).

Edit: I could use multiple 'IF' statements, but this is cumbersome. There must be a simpler way.

## Ignore Blank Cells But Keep The 0?

May 27, 2014

I am working on 2 tabs in a workbook.

The first tab has raw data - The second is my summary.
TAB1 -includes
column A = name range column B = Evaluation Result 1 %
column C = Evaluation Result 2 %
column D = Evaluation Result 3 %
column E = Evaluation Result 4 %
TAB 2 on...The remainder of the tabs are summary for each name in column A of Tab1.
each summary tab includes
A3 = name
A7 = Evaluation Results 1
A8 = Evaluation Results 2
A9 = Evaluation Results 3
A10 = Evaluation Results 4

The evaluation results can include any % from 0-100 and can also be blank. I need to count the 0 but ignore the blanks so for example on Evaluation Result 1, Im using

=SUMIF(Tab1!\$A:\$A,Tab2!\$A\$3,Tab1!\$B:\$B)

So I can find the name in the list of names and the % score for the evaluation - however I don't know how to ignore the blank cells. If the cells are blank I would like to see "-". if they are 0% I would like to see the 0%.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells With Formula

Nov 10, 2011

In cell C1 I hace A1-B1 and in cell DI want to display the status of the cell C1 like this : =IF(C10 ; "NOT OK" ; "OK") This means that when the value of the cell C1 is different then 0 cell D1 will display "NOT OK" and if the value of cell c1 is 0 then D1 will display "OK".

The PROBLEM: Because the cell C1 contains a formula (A1-B1) the D1 cell will display "NOT OK" even if the cell C1 doesn't show any number.

## Ignore One Of The Cells (P29) If Cell Value Is Zero Or Blank?

Dec 13, 2011

I have a spreadsheet and need to ignore one of the cells (P29) if cell value is Zero or Blank and display a blank cell which in this case is (Q2

My current formula is

=SUM(\$P\$19:P29)/2

## Ignore Blank Cells In A Average

Mar 3, 2004

I am doing an average of a column of cells. How do I tell excel to ignore the blank cells in the column and not calculate them in the average?

## 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.

## Ignore Blank Cells In Conditional Formatting?

Feb 15, 2010

I have tried to set up a list of cells to highlight in red any numerical values which are greater than 0 using conditional formatting. This works fine, except that all blank cells are also highlighted in red. Formula is currently: cell value is greater than 0. What do I need to do to ignore the empty cells?

## Conditional Format: Ignore Blank Cells

Feb 5, 2007

Excel 2004 for Mac

I'd like to give a conditional format to a range of cells so that only one cell in the range has a gray background. The condition must include three criteria:
1) The cell cannot be blank, AND
2) The cell's value must be the minimum in the range, AND
3) The cell's value must not equal any value preceding it in the range.

My own attempt looks like this for cell J8 in the range C8:AF8:
=AND(NOT(ISBLANK(J8)),J8=MIN(\$C8:\$AF8),J8\$C8:I8)

Problem: This condition works great for all values entered EXCEPT ZERO. When J8 is the first zero in the range, if it is preceded by a blank cell anywhere else in the range, it fails the third criterion (J8\$C8:I8) because Excel treats the blank cell as though it's a zero. Result: no gray background.

How can I get Excel to "ignore" blank cells.

## Transfer Results Of IF Statement To Another Tab And Ignore Blank Cells?

Apr 15, 2014

I've got a work book (2010 btw) with several tabs.

On tab 5 is an inventory list with "Stock Number and Nomenclature" merged in row A7-Q7 and down to row A23-Q23.

Beside each Item there are “Required Quantities (EA)" in Colum U7-U23. After an inventory is executed, The values are placed in Colum V7-V23 (INV).

Stock Number Nomenclature EA Inv
34419-43450 Mission Modu 1 “X”

After inventorying.... I need a formula that "compares the required quantities (EA) to the actual inventoried values (X)".

IF the actual inventoried quantities are equal to or greater than "Required Quantities" - Display Nothing in tab 6

IF the actual inventoried quantities are LESS than the "Required Quantities" - Display “Stock Number and Nomenclature" in tab 6 for a shortage list, ignoring the "blank cells".

## Adjust Dynamic Range To Ignore Formulas In Blank Cells?

May 19, 2014

Attached is a spreadsheet I am working on that has a series of graphs with defined dynamic ranges. I am having 2 separate issues on 2 different tabs.

1) Ranges named AirRecBra4 (and Bra10); AirComBra4 (and Bra10); AirRemBra4 (and Bra10) are not pulling in data from the correct data points. Instead of using the last 26 data point, they are currently beginning at the top of the column (currently cells 11 to 36 is their respective columns). The formulas are copy and pasted from working offset ranges in the same tab but are reading differently.

2) On the last 6 tabs beginning with Stn Backlog, I want to have defined formulas beginning in cell B119 and continuing downward to at least F200. However, when I add the formulas, the offset reads the formulas as being data and adjusts for that. I do not know how to adjust the dynamic range to ignore formulas in blank cells.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells In Formula Counting Days Between Two Dates

Jul 22, 2014

I have the following formula which counts number of days between dates in two adjacent cells excluding holidays

=NETWORKDAYS(U311,V311,\$AA\$4:\$AA\$14)-1

The \$AA\$4:\$AA\$14 refers tote range where the excluded holiday dates are stored.

I have included the -1 at the end as it over counts by one day every time. i.e. if the same date is in both cells it counts 1

However if no date is in both fields it count -1 (minus one)

If a date is just in one field it counts a very high number, example below.

-1

16/07/2014

-29879

20/06/2014
08/07/2014
12

[code].....

is there a better formula to use for this? How do I get the result to show ZERO when both cells are empty? can I get the result to show number of days to present date where there is only a date in first column?

## Formula To Ignore Blank Cells And Copy Data That Meets Criteria?

Apr 27, 2014

I have a worksheet (Data) that lists when pupils are in for Nursery sessions during the week. If they are in they have a 3 (hours) by their name in the relevant columns.

In the AM worksheet I now need to pull through a "register" so under each daily heading I need to pull through everyone that has a 3 next to their name under Monday AM / Tuesday AM / Wednesday AM etc. from the Data sheet. However, I don't want it to copy any blank cells. I then need to do the same for the PM sheet.

## Count Blank Cells Within A Range Not Including Fully Blank Rows

Jul 15, 2008

I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

=COUNTBLANK(C6:AD2506)

But I dont want it to count the cells if the entire row, within that cell, i.e. C6:AD6, is blank.

It should only count the blank cells within a row if there has been some data entered on that row..provided it has been entered within the specified range.

## Count Blank & Zero Cells Where Corresponding Column Not Blank

Jun 15, 2007

I was curious if it is possible to give a single cell multiple number formats based on what the number is in the cell. So for example if my number is bigger than 1000, I would like to use comas so that it looks like this 1,000. However, if it is less than 1000 I would like it to look more like this 999.00.

## 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.

## Count Number Of Blank Cells Between 2 Cells Containing Data

## Count Blank Cells In VBA

Jun 9, 2006

how to create a macro that will count blank cells. I've tried several different variations of a basic 'count cells' macro, but I can't seem to find the right one.

If anyone would be kind enough to post a solution VBA, I would be extremely thankful, and so would my superiors. I'm an intern trying to get my foot in the door, and this would certainly be a first major step for me.

## Count Blank Cells..

Mar 21, 2007

I have a spreadsheet where I'm trying to determine the number of weeks that have transpired since the last sale of an item. COUNTBLANK is the direction I started in but it only shows the number of blank cells, it doesn't count the blanks until it recognizes a numeric value and stop. Essentially, I need a "count until x happens" function.

I've attached an example to walk through the issue. The weeks are across the top, the item number in col A, and I've put the result I'm expecting in col B.

## Ignore Blank TextBox

Dec 14, 2009

In the below code, in the event that a textbox is blank, I get an error. I tried using the "VAL" function but that didn't work as I had anticipated. Is there a function that will allow me to bypass the blank textboxes? I am sure there must be an easier way than an IF statement that validates each textbox, right?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim v As Long, w As Long, x As Long
Dim y As Long, z As Long

v = Me.TextBox1.Value
w = Me.TextBox2.Value * 350
x = Me.TextBox3.Value * 400
y = Me.TextBox4.Value * 400
z = Me.TextBox5.Value

Me.TextBox6 = Format(v + w + x + y, "##,#0.00")
Me.TextBox7 = Format(Sqr(Me.TextBox6.Value) * 4, "##,#0.00")

End Sub

## Count Of The Blank Cells In Column

Nov 3, 2008

I am creating a chart and want to get a count of only the blank cells in Column D only if there is information contained in Column A (same row). I am using Excel 2003.

## Count Blank Cells Only If A 1 Is Previous

Feb 19, 2009

getting a formula to do this

I have
......D E
5 )......1
6 )......2
7 )......3
8 )......4
9 )......5
10)......6
11)......7
etc down to 31

They only show up when the cell next to it is not empty.

=IF(ISBLANK(D5),"0",(1))
=IF(ISBLANK(D6),"0",(2))
etc

If nothing is put into say D5 D6 or D7 but something is put in D8 then i would like E8 to become 1 as it is the first to be filled.Then when D9 has something in it, it becomes 2 if D10 has nothing in it it gets left blank but when d11 has something in it e11 becomes 4 counting the blank cell in between.

How can this be done.

## Count Cells Until First Non-blank Cell

Feb 15, 2009

So what I have is an unknown number of rows, starting at row 2. The first row (row 2) contains information from A2:M2 but all rows after this in column M will be blank up to a particular row. What I want to do, is count how many rows are blank in the column M up to the last blank cell and fill this with a specific word. I have attached a basic layout workbook to show what I want. There is a comment on cell M3.

I have several in a row Cells A2: AE2 'I need to count all the empty cells but has a discretion.

If you find the letter 'X' will count all the empty cells before the 'X'.

DSA
X

1
2
3

5
6

0
0
0
0

See the example all cells that was before the 'X' were counted.

The result would be six cells (C3=6)

## Count Non-Blank Cells In Different Sheet?

Dec 10, 2013

I have a master sheet which shows from Jan to Dec (in 1 sheet), so I did a break down on each tab e.g Jan (First Tab), Feb (Second Tab), etc.

So basically now i have some cells that are blank, in the breakdown sheet which i copied from the master copy.

i use counta but it returns me 140 instead of 130(manually calculated). im guessing that is because in every cell of Jan tab i have "=master!D1" in it.

how do i formulate a proper formula for this?

## Do Not Count The Blank Cells In Range

Jan 19, 2009

This formula counts how many dates in the range match the month in cell (Q3). How do I get this formula to to not count empty cells. I keep getting \$VALUE! as my answer when I include all the cells in the range.

This is the formula:
=SUMPRODUCT(--(P20:P976-DAY(P20:P976)+1=DATE(YEAR(Q3),MONTH(Q3),1)))

This is the formula in the cells of the range that is being used above:
=IF(D26="","",IF(F26"",F26,IF(I26"",I26,IF(\$Q\$3"",\$Q\$3))))

I needed this formula to leave the cell blank if all the data cells were blank that's why I have =IF(D26="","", at the begining.
