I am trying to write a formula for the following can anyone help please?

I have column D with blank cells and some with purchase order numbers in them. I want to count the blank cells in column D but only if the blank is 3days older than the date recorded in column A. Once I have done this I want to count ther same on every work sheet and I have 24 off them and get one answer.

This will tell us all the outstanding purchase order older than 3days

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).

PeriodWeek #DayDateNotes11Thursday29-DecBB vaca11Friday30-DecBB vaca

Tab1

PeriodWeek #DayDateNotes11Thursday29-DecBB vaca11Friday30-DecBB vaca

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)

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?

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?

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%.

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", "")

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?

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

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.

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?

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

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.

I made a table like:

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I presume this is fairly simple to do, since it's certainly easy enough to do manually by filling in a couple of rows and dragging them down, but I need it to be performed in a macro that I can run before other macros run.

What I need specifically is for the macro to go to G1 and insert the number .01... Then go to G2 and insert .02... Then G3 and insert .03... And repeat this until it finds the first non-blank cell ( row number this occurs at varies), at which point it ends and does nothing to that populated cell or any other cell in the column thereafter (including other blanks farther down).

This all needs to be done in Arial, 10pt, white.

Here's what I'm attempting to do: For each column, X,Y, Z, I am attempting

to count nonblanks. However, the data was imported from Access and Oracle,

and Excel treats what appear to be blank cells as nonblanks. I've tested

this theory by highlighting a couple of "blank" cells and deleting them, and

my count changes. So, can I get Excel to put a value into my "blank" cells,

so then I could filter it out, or create a formula that would only count

dates in my columns (which is what I'm after).

This is what I'm looking at:

A B C

1 2/4/2006 2/6/2006 ("blank")

2 ("blank") 12/13/2005 1/7/2006

3 2/20/2006 1/15/2006 ("blank")

In each column if I use a COUNTA I'll get a total of 3, instead of 2 for A,

3 for B and 1 for C.

I have a list that looks something like this:

Column B

Row 4 Item 1

Row 5 Item 2

Row 6

Row 7

Row 8 Item 3

Row 9

Row 10 Item 4

Row 11

Row 12

Row 13

Row 14 Item 5

The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"

I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.

The formula below calculates appropriately, however, if any of the cells (E12,E14, E21, E22, E28, E29) are blank, it returns a #VALUE! error. I would like the cell to remain blank. How can I do this? The formula is listed below.

=(SUM(E34-E6)-(SUM((E12)+E14)-(SUM((E21)+E22)-(SUM(E28)+E29))))

the situation is i have a sheet, contains like 500 cells, from A1, to T500, some of the cells are blank, then i figure that from cell A1 to E500 not all the words in capital, so i make it with upper on the2nd sheet, then, i copy + paste value back to the first sheet (A1 to E500)

i get wht i want, but why it's like there's no blank cells anymore on my worksheet.

like you know, if u want to jump from a filled cell to the blank cell, you would hit Ctrl + Down, it jump to the very end of the datas that i paste value before.

so when i hit Ctrl + Down from A1, it jumps to A500, meanwhile the filled cells only 10 cells.

I have a spreadsheet with data in 7 columns. Columns A-d have one line of data in them but the other 3 columns have more than one line.

How do I write a macro which will copy the first row of the first 4 columns down until I reach an empty row?
