I had this problem a few days ago and NVBC suggested Text to Columns, which worked initally but didn't seem to 'save' or stick... also, I'm not sure what is causing the problem to begin with. It was my understanding that Excel couldn't return a truely 'blank' value. If a cell was blank or empty, Excel still 'sees' it as Zero. WHY then, for the Love of Gummi Bears, will Excel not calculate my formula. It's a simple formula!

=A13+B13

I've tried
=SUM(A13+B13)

I've tried
=IF(ISERROR(A13+B13),"",A13+B13)

But if don't TYPE in a 0 or a number, then it just does nothing. 50 + 0 = should be 50 not blank or #VALUE!. 50 + Nothing = should be 50 not blank or #VALUE!

Attached is a small copy of what I'm trying to do. I've double checked that all number cells are formatted to numbers, not text. I tried the Data:Text to Columns trick. I've tried Tools:Options:Show Zeros. I've tried Manual and Automatic Calculation. They shouldn't have to type in 60 cells of Zero to get the simple calculation.

I have a long range of cells (U3:AX3), all of which are empty save one. Is there a way to search through the range of cells, and return the contents of the one cell that contains text?

I would do this with a series of nested IF statements if there weren't more than 30 of them!

I have been trying to register a macro and modify it. That was supposed to autofilter a table by date between values contained in 2 cells (start date & end date).

I declared variables for that, but for some reason, value returned are Emty (date 00:00:00).

Do you see something wrong in this small code?

Sub Filter() Dim fDate As Date Dim lDate As Date fDate = Range("B1") lDate = Range("B2") Range("B3:I3").Select Selection.AutoFilter ActiveSheet.Range("$B$3:$I$99").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:= _ ">=" & Val(fDate), Operator:=xlAnd, Criteria2:="

Ok, so I have a column of data in 24hr time format over a 24hr period from noon thru midnight and back to noon again. It has been necessary to make some of the cells in the column blank, and I am having difficulty extracting the first and last non-blank entries of the column (basically I want the earliest and latest time in that specific 24hr period). The time data is in order, so for example, some of the first values in the column are 14:30, 21:10, and 22:40, while some of the last values in the column are 02:20, 05:50, and 11:00, therefore the values I require are 14:30 and 11:00.

Any help that anyone can give on this matter would be greatly appreciated, but until then I guess I will keep plodding through the help sites and playing with formula until I spontaneously combust.

I have a range that is filled with formulae and the the number of rows in the range with data changes as the formulae reevaluate the inputs. So the rows with visible data changes between one row and 200 rows. By looking at the output in the first column of the range, Col M and finding the last row where the formulae returns data, I need a way of selecting across the columns of the range (M1 through to Qi) where i is the number of rows that have data in.

The macro I have is looping all sheets looking for empty cells in a specific column, and when it founds an empty cell the value for one cell is copied to the empty cell.

But in one worksheet it stops with the error:

Run-time error '1004' Application-defined or object-defined error

I have a sheet with a reference field that I want to sort. Each cell in the reference field has a formula in it, which specifies that the cell remain blank unless there is a value in the cell. The values are either text values or number values. e.g. =IF(ISERROR(S4),"",VLOOKUP(C4,'Rider Data'!A:G,6,FALSE))

When I sort the field in ascending order by the column that contains the formula above (using a macro written for this sort procedure), where the expected value is a text value, all the blank cells are sorted ABOVE the cells with text values in them, rather than below, even though they are blank cells. However,if I sort on a different column which contains time values or numerical values, the sort function works just fine. I have tested the VBA code that produces the erroneous sorting and confirmed that it happens only when sorting on columns that contain text values. I would like to sort text values in ascending order with blank cells BELOW the sorted cells.

I would like to rows based on multiple column conditions criteria. ie., if the columns N, O, P values are "", then hide the particular row. The logic given in the website here, i tried But, it is not 100% working. It works for a few rows at the start of the database & it works for the rows at the end of the database. In between, for a few rows, even if the column values are "" it does not hide those rows.

1) 4 values contains in each row based on the values from those cells the max value will display.

2) if more than 2 cells have empty,NR or NA text means the entire row has to delete.

3) if 2 or more that means 3 cells having values the empty cell,NR or NA cell will place value with the condition of macro that is 75% of other values which is maximum among them.

When I look at the cell: wsEmpRec.Cells(10,50).Value in the VBA Watch window the value is Empty. I mean, that's the actual word that shows up. I'm trying to test if there is a value in the cell but when I use: if wsEmpRec.Cells(10,50).Value = "" then the condition is not being met. How can I test for an Empty cell as opposed to a cell that contains an empty string?

i have this formula in cell e28 =IF(B28<>"",LOOKUP(B28,STOCK!A1:A500,STOCK!B1:B500),"") and when its empty it returns a blank cell

but in cell e29 i have exactly the same formula =IF(B29<>"",LOOKUP(B29,STOCK!A1:A500,STOCK!B1:B500),"") but i returns #n/a

why is this and how do i stop it i want the cell to be empty unless there is a code entered in b29 in which case it will look up the relevant info for me

Basically, I want to use look in one cell to get a value then in a table look in a coloum to find the same value then return a value from a different column in that row.

This is to organize groups of children participating in an event.

I'm linking one sheet in a workbook to another. The formula is simple,

='Link 1'!E1

If there is data in the cell, it replicates it which is what I'm after. However if there is no data in the cell it returns a "0", not what I want at all.

I have a current formula using SUM formulas obviously in the answer cell the answer is returning 0 due to no data inputed, how do i make the cell show empty.

eg. =SUM(A1*A3) returns answer 0 need cell to be blank.

I have a sheet containing collums with month an weeks. I try to find out which collum the first week start and where te last week the same mont ends.

Let say A5:E5 is filled with december in each cell. The row below (A6:E6) says week 48, week 49, week 50, week 51, week 52.

I want a formula telling me de Cell reference where desember begins en where it ends. In my Excample (A5 and E5). If Possible, I also could prefer that the cell reference was to rows below start/end. In my example (A7 and E7)

i'm trying to figure out a way that would return the address of the cell that contains the highest/lowest value of a range i.e. =cell("address",min(g3:g6)).

if the lowest value was in cell g4, i'd want the output from above formula to be $g$4.

I am trying to create a formula that will act like a vlookup but will return a different row. In other words, On page two I need to write a formula that says: In column 1 if you see "Extension 101" return column 2 of the row right beneath it, so on and so forth. So page two should return a mirror of what page one says, the difference is I would like people to type in "Extension 101" in a cell and it would return all the date.

A B

1 EXTENSION 101

2 INBOUND TALK TIME 55M19S

[code].....

Cell A1 would be typed in//Cell A2-A4 would be static//Cell B2-B4 would return these numbers based on info from A1.

Cell A1 would always be unique in column A (on both pages).

The conversion rate is updated daily from telephony reports, and I manually sort it into conversion order each day before sending it round.

What I want to do is find the highest converter for each team.

So:

Column A ('TeamLeader' range) has the Team leaders in, column B has the agent name ('Agent' range), and column F has the agents conversion rate ('conversion' range).

I think I'm on the right track with this formula:

=(MAX(IF(TeamLeader="Bonnie",Conversion))

But this only displays the figure in the Conversion rate, how to I get it to 'step back' 4 column's and show the agents name?

my spreadsheet to return the word unit if cell a18=1 or the word units if its over 1 but i also want the cell to remain empty if there is nothing input into cell a18 is this possible

Essentially what I'm trying to accomplish is import a file from Quickbooks and determine whether it was a Credit Card, Check or Invoice based on the account number.

For example:

45-12345 should return the value CC in an adjacent cell because it contains the "-" character. I0123456 should return the value INV in an adjacent cell because it contains the "I" character. 01234567 should return the value ACH in an adjacent cell because it doesn't contain either character.

I tried using VLookup, but I can't figure out how to write a formula for when it just contains a character, only if it matches it or is text/number.

All the answers I can find for this address either the auto-calculation setting or formatting the cell as a number. I am using this same formula in a bunch of cells to calculate totals: =SUM(E12:E17). It works find all over the sheet, except in one box. There is no difference in formatting or data type or anything.

The numbers being summed from the cells above the one in question are referenced from another sheet if that is relevant.

I am not sure if this is doable in VB or if there is an excel function to do this but I am using a rather large worksheet that is shared amongst my staff. I would like to have the sheet clear any filters that have been used by one member and for the sheet to save with the cursor in the home cell (A1). This way the sheet is ready for the next user. Can this be done with VB?

I am wondering if there is a way to return a cell reference by having excel look at a table with certain parameters. For instance... If there were a table with repeated dates such as: Feb 12 1500 1530 Feb 12 1745 1750 Feb 13 1215 1245 Feb 13 1610 1700 Feb 13 1850 1900 Feb 14 1050 1140 Is there a way to return the cell number (ie A6) for the first instance of Feb 14?

I have a sheet which uses a vlookup to find the data on a large sheet. normally to get the cell reference of the data i would use cell("address",......
