Tab 2

I have the column E in excel labeled 'Notes' in tab 1 adding at the bottom of the column using(=COUNTA(E2:E29), so if the cell is empty it doesnt add it up in the totals. In tab two i have that same column linked via formula. In tab 2 its counting the empty cells because even though they appear blank they have a formulas in them how do i get it to not count those cells. here is the formula im using in column E tab 2.

=IF('tab1'!E2="","",'tab2'!E2)

## Leaving Blank Cells Blank In Dragging Formula Combining Different Formulas In One Cell?

Aug 2, 2014

I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.

## Counting Non-coloured Blank Cells?

Apr 13, 2013

I have a Colom with dates, some cell are coloured and others not, some of the non-coloured cells have dates and some not. I would like to count ONLY the non-coloured cells without dates in them.

## Counting Blank Cells Using Sumproducts

Sep 1, 2009

I am trying to put together a table from which I'll attach a chart showing-at a glance-where open complaints are in our process:

are they open, closed, waiting for samples, waiting for QC, QC'd pending admin approval, etc.

my log consists of a lot of columns which track various pertinant info about each complaint. Such as A-complaint ID, B-date opened, C-date closed, K-initial QC investigation, L-final QC, M-admin status (pending/approved/denighed), N-notes (boiler plate notes like "pending ra samples" or "closed").

I used this formula alot in my various analyses =SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(Log!open)=\$O74),--('ComplaintLog (101408).xls'!iqc="pending")) without issue.

Until now. I want to search multiple criteria starting with the year (2009, in this case) and whether or not the issue is closed (date in column C). Only need a count.

How do I append the sumproduct formula? I've looked at isblank but get crazy results from #value to #name to 340 (I only have 292).

## Counting Blank Cells And Countifs

Jan 18, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that is used to capture information about Service Requests that my team handles in a 6 month period. At the end of January, the metrics for January will be added and the metrics for July will "fall off".

I need to be able to calculate the number of requests that were still active for each month. The formula I have created for this is below:

=COUNTIFS(Table1[Date Submitted],"Month Beginning of the First Month Being Reported", Table1[Date Closed], ">A Day Before Current Month Closing")

So, if my reporting period was July 2012 to December 2012, my formula for December would look like:

=COUNTIFS(Table1[Date Submitted],"7/1/2012", Table1[Date Closed], ">1/6/2013")

This accounts for anything that was opened in the months that was not closed before the month closing of the current month being reported.

I have two issues that I'm having with this formula:

1. The formula does not take into account the Service Requests that do not have a date in the "Date Closed" columns. Is there a way I can also count the items that have a blank "Date Closed"?

2. This formula will have to be changed every time a month "falls off". For example, when the reporting period changes from July to December to August to January, the formula for December will change to:

=COUNTIFS(Table1[Date Submitted],"8/5/2012", Table1[Date Closed], ">1/6/2013")

Is there a way I can have it change automatically without me having to do it manually?

## Value Not Available Error - Counting Blank Cells

Feb 24, 2009

I'm trying to to create a formula where if two different cells have no value (K10 & O10) a third cell will also be blank (N10)

I have the following formula which follows these steps when i evaluate it.

=VLOOKUP(K10&O10,\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "&O10,\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "&" ",\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

#N/A

How can i deliver a blank cell as the answer?

## Stopping A Graph From Counting Blank Cells As 'zero'

Aug 27, 2009

see attached doc. The graph is showing the overall % from the table above. However months april-december are blank although they have a formula in them. This is causing the graph to show thes months as 0%.

## Date Formula Counting Blank Cells

Dec 9, 2009

I have a simple date formula that I want to present "yes" in a cell when another cells date is less then or equal to "Today". I just can't figure out how to make it show my result cell as blank if my date cell is blank?

here is my formula....
=IF(G8 <= TODAY(), "YES", "")

## Counting Some Blank Cells And Ignoring Others In A Range.

Sep 5, 2009

Using formula rather than VB, I would like to calculate the number of blank cells that appear in a column BEFORE the first active cell but exclude any blank cells that appear after the first active cell. To elaborate, I have sheets that contain the days of each month and I need to exclude for other calculation purposes, the number of days (cells) where no entry of data has been input at the beginning of a month, NOT after the first data entry. ie. September has 30 days.

The first data entry is the 10th and there are no entries (thus far) after the 10th, the result that I seek, will be 20 (although only one cell has data), being the days left in the month AFTER the first entry. I have looked at COUNT functions but cannot find an solution. Perhaps it's not possible using basic formula?

## Counting Non-Blank Cells - COUNTA Returns 0

Jan 19, 2012

I have a formula counting non blank cells in another sheet 'Mem' I know there are 21 entries in Column M, which it used to show as the result. Today it shows 0. The 21 entries are still there.

Code:
=COUNTA(Mem!\$M:M)

The cell containing the formula is B6. The bottom bar of Excel has: Ready Circular:B6

I want to count the number of cells in column A that are not blank MINUS or EXCLUDING the cells in Column AD whose values are "Closed".

## Pivot Table Counting Blank Cells

Apr 2, 2008

why it is counting every blank cell as 1. I have tried to copy my data as paste as special value and run pivot again but I get the same result. For you visual consideration, I've attached a sample spreadsheet.

## Formulas That Include Blank Cells

Oct 9, 2008

I can't figure out how to make this formula work because I need to use cell AG46 and it contains an IF formula that leaves the cell blank if the sum = 0. I keep getting the #VALUE! error. How do you create a formula using a cell that has an IF formula that could leave the cell blank?

Basically this is what I need in cell I12:
=sum(a12)-(ag46*8)

## 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?

## Cells That Depend On Formulas To Remain Blank

Jun 13, 2009

i am wondering if there is a way that i can have these cells that depend on formulas to remain blank, until i have my data entered, or that they may remain blank, but give me running totals of only the cells i have inputted.

## Get Autofilter To Exclude Blank Cells That Contain Formulas

Feb 3, 2012

I have the following line in a macro:

Range("b22:L" & Range("J" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).AutoFilter

This selects rows based on whether they contain data and creates an autofilter of the range.

The data Im using this on will have blank cells as the bottom rows but they will contain formulas that blank the cells based on ISNA() conditions,

How do I get the above code to only select cells with visible data and ignore those that are blank but contain formulas.

## Delete Rows With Blank Cells But Housing Formulas

Sep 1, 2009

I have several lists that I need to be able to print out periodically.

The main worksheet that underpins each list is over 900 lines long and numerous calcs and formulae populate columns to provide the data for my 'print lists'.

I need my 'print lists' on seperate worksheets and I have linked the data from my main worksheet results, using IF statements to stop unwanted results being displayed by making the rows appear empty (i.e. to display "").

Due to the design of my main Worksheet it is inevitable that I have many rows in each 'print list' that are not required for that particular 'print list'.

I want to remove the 'empty' rows from the print sheets at the time of printing. I cannot use the GoTo > Special > Blanks > Delete Rows because the rows are not recognised as being 'blank'.

I have attached 2 screenshots of my 'print lists'.

P.S. I am not assuming anything but I have searched on OZGRID and it appears to me that I might need to use Excel/VBA?

## Formulas In Offset: Run It The Cells Remain Blank But The Code Is Above In The Fx

Apr 26, 2006

s1. Offset(1, 2).Range("K4:K464").Formula = "=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$B\$1063,2,FALSE)),"""",(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$B\$1063,2,FALSE)))"

How do you get code like above to work in Offset? When i run it the cells remain blank but the code is above in the fx.

## Counting Cells With Zero But Not Blank Cells

Oct 18, 2009

I know this question may have been posted before, but I can not seem to get this to work with my formula. I have a formula to count the values of a column so that I can convert it to a graph. I am giving a value of 1 to cells that contain numbers between 0 and 9.5 and giving a value of 0 to cells that contain numbers greater than 9.5. It works fine except that I have some blank cells that I do not want to get rid of and it is counting those as zeros and giving them a value of one. I want to ignore the blank cells or give them a value of zero.

=IF(AND(F2>=0,F2

## 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.

## Formulas Not Counting Before Re-accepting?

Jan 18, 2013

I have an xls-workbook that is saved in OpenOffice. It has simple formulas that shows correctly in Excel. Excel doesn't solve them before "re-accepting" (like going to formula bar and pressing enter). No editing of formula is needed at all (unless you count "enabling edit-mode" and accepting the empty edit as editing).

## Formulas For Counting Days

Jan 12, 2007

Is there a formula that will return the number of "weekdays" there are in any given month if I provide the month and year?

Is there a formula that will return the total number of days in February if I provide a year?

## Counting Formulas And Creating A Matrix

Feb 16, 2009

I have the following used formula to count how many occurances there are of a particular piece of text in a column:

=SUM(IF(range="text",1,0))

e.g. {=SUM(IF(K6:K16="H",1,0))}

I have repeated this formula for an adjacent column

e.g. {=SUM(IF(L6:L16="M",1,0))}

I need to find a way of counting number of occurances in these two columns (K and L) when text "H" and "M" are present in the same row.

To further complicate matters (well for me anyway) the text "H" and "M" care chosen from a list of options in the K and L columns.

What i ultimatly want to do is create a matrix to compare how many times all possble occurances of the various options listed in both columns are present in the same row in the spreadsheet.

## Excel 2007 :: Formulas In Cells Not Being Recognized As Formulas?

Jan 10, 2013

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

## Blank Counting Amongst Two Data Columns

Oct 17, 2013

So, in general I do have two columns F and G taken from the other xls.

Age is obviously difference between today and open date

Open date is open date.

Age and due date.png

In this case, I have 3 rows where there is no open date extracted, therefore is no age. The counter stops on them and shows 529 in total instead of 532 or shows the age as far more than 365 days. How can I count the blank cells, but only in the range of the list I do have, not the all blanks I have from the beginning till the end of the column, so I could (for similar in this case) have 3 blanks cells counted?

Sometimes is also stuck in the middle of counting (when blanks are inside there) and the total number is even smaller. What function can I use to count these 3 (or less, more inn the future) as BLANK to have the total numbers realistic?

## Counting Should Stop At Blank Cell

Nov 9, 2009

The code down below counts all cells from column A2 to I11. The problem; the code should stop counting if there is a blanc cell in a column and go to the next column to countinue. My query; how should the code be modified so it will stop counting if there is a blanc cell.

## Excel 2010 :: Bottom To Top Counting With One Criteria (Up To Blank)

Jul 7, 2014

find the attached excel 2010 file <Count LBP or UBP.xlsx>.

My requirement is if `LBO' is available (in Column A) then the formula should count the number of `LBP' available above the `LBO' upto the blank cell. If there is no `LBP' above the `LBO' then it should plot zero in Correponding Column B Cell. If 2 `LBP's available above the `LBO' upto balnk space it should plot `2' in Correponding Column B Cell.

As like `LBO' and `LBP' the formula should work for `UBO' & `UBP'. refer the attached excel file.
