# Excel 2003 :: Write Formula That Will Leave Cell Blank If Nothing Is Entered?

Sep 28, 2011

how to write a formula that will leave a cell blank if nothing is entered. I do not want it to show a 0 unless the cell entered is a 0.

In cell G16 - I am adding U46 and U58 together.

Jan 15, 2014

I created this formula =G2*2.9%+.3

what I am trying to do is take the number in the G column multiply it by 2.9% and add 0.30. For instance if 20.00 is in the G2 cell, the number I want the formula to produce is .88

the formula works for me but what happens is the rest of my sheet that does not have any numbers in the G column gets filled with .30

How do I prevent the formula from calculating if the G column is blank?

## Excel 2003 :: Cell Value To Change If Date Is Entered In Different Cell?

Feb 21, 2014

I am using Excel 2003 at work.

New cases are entered on to the spreadsheet. The case remains open until a closure date is entered, at which point the case is closed. What I need is the following:

Cell A3 = should say "Open" if there is no value in cell Y3
Cell A3 = should say "Closed" if a date or any value is entered in cell Y3. Ideally it should only say "Closed" if a date is entered in format xx/xx/xx, but am flexible so that it says "Closed" if any data is input.

At the moment Cell A1 has a drop down list consisting of open and closed. I will remove this if it causes complication.

Jan 17, 2013

Cell B1 contains a date, then B2 contains a formula that says:

=IF(A1>TODAY(),A1,A2)

A1 contains a green tick and A2 contains a red cross.

What I am trying to add is that if B1 contains no date then B2 needs to be blank.

I tried using =IF((A1="",0),(A1>TODAY(),A1,A2) to get it to show a 0 if there was no data but this doesn't work.

## If Tab Exists Put Cell, If Not, Leave Blank

Feb 26, 2007

Excel Version: 2000

Workbook has the possiblities of 366 tabs at the bottom, but for a normal calendar year will only have 26.

The tab name is the ending date of the pay period without the year. So for Feb 25, 2007 the tab would be named 0225

On a yearly calculations page I am simply trying to say IF TAB 0225 exists then cell equals '0225'!A2 otherwise the cell should be blank.

I tried this, but gets a reference failure instead of putting nothing...

=IF('0102'!A2=0,"",'0102'!A2)

In this example the possible tab name would be 0102. If the tab exists, everything works fine, but since in this case it doesn't, I get a reference failure. #REF!

I NEED the result to be empty if the tab doesn't exist.

Any idea would be helpful. I'd rather not have 366 tabs when only 26 are needed for any calendar year.

## Add Time (minutes) Or Leave Cell Blank

Jun 18, 2014

cell A1 has the time (09:00), cell A2 has the minutes (60), cell A3 is the sum of A1+A2.

Im using this formula =A1+TIME(0,A2,0) - which is fine, except A1 is sometimes blank, so therefore I would like A3 to be blank.

I thought I could use this: =IF(A1,"","",(A1+TIME(0,A2,0)) But it doesn't work.

## Leave Other Cells Blank If No Data In Cell

May 9, 2009

I'm using a formula that I got from a previously made excel sheet. The formula does what I need it to do and looks like this: =INT((D10-10)/2)

The problem is, if I don't enter a number in the cell D10, all the cells with this formula show -5.

If I don't want data entered into D10 yet, I'd like all the cells with that formula to be blank until I actually enter a number in D10.

I think it has to do with using an IF statement followed with ""? Am I on the right track?

Also, if I have other formulas like =SUM(AP3:AQ6), but the cells it refers to are blank, how can I make the cell with the formula also be blank rather than show a 0?

I know I can turn off the "Show a zero in cells that have zero value" option, but I was wondering how to do it with the formula instead.

## Copy Cell Data To Other Worksheet Cell - Leave Blank If Not Currently Filled

Jul 8, 2014

I am wanting to have certain cells of data from one worksheet appear on another worksheet once the cells on the first sheet have data entered in them.

I find that I can do a simple formula to copy the cell but I want the cell to remain blank until data is added in the first sheet (it will be a mix of text and numerical entries).

## SUMIFS - If No Criteria Match Leave Cell Blank Else Return Value

Nov 5, 2011

I'm trying to set up my formula so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

(I recommend skipping the below text and just opening the attached spreadsheet, instructions/what I'm looking for and trying to achieve and well laid out requirements and examples are in the spreadsheet and much more thoroughly explained then I can do below)

I'm setting up a table that grabs data from columns in a raw data spreadsheet.

For the purpose of the table I'm making, the formula needs to match up both the House, and the year/month from the raw data sheet, then if the two match and are side by side, return the value to the right either in the Plan Field or the actuals field depending on which field in the table the formula is in. If there is no entry or matching criteria for both the house and Month then it should leave the cell blank, not show a 0

So I have a SUMIFS formula that I'm trying to set up so that if there is no criteria match it leaves the cell blank.

So =SUMIFS(sum range, criteria& range, criteria&range), if no matching criteria can be found, leave cell blank, else if matching criteria found then return value from the sumrange.

This is the exact formula I am using:

=SUMIFS(INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$B9, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$A\$8, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), Table!\$A\$9, INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$B\$8, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), TEXT(Table!C\$8, "yyyymm"))

Yeah kind of hard to follow, so attached is a very detailed and well laid out spreadsheet showing the example of what the formula is, how it's working/what it's returning and an example of what i want it to return/look like, so please check out the spreadsheet, it explains it a million times better.

Essentially though i want the formula set up so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

## Excel 2003 :: Referring To Cell Value In COUNTIF Formula

May 7, 2013

I am using Excel 2003

Cell B13 contains the row number of the first row of data on the sheet and B14 contains the row number of the end row of data. This is because the number of rows vary over time.

I'm trying to do a COUNTIF to test for duplicates in column R (contains integers) and I want to specify the range to count by referring to the value in B13 and B14 in the formula and so I have the following which returns FALSE for some reason even if the value in R19 appears more than once in the range ...

=COUNTIF(INDEX(R:R,\$B\$13):INDEX(R:R,\$B\$14),R19)>1

## Excel 2003 :: ROUNDUP Of Result In Cell That Contains Formula?

## Excel 2003 :: Reverse Track If Value In A Cell Is Used By Formula Elsewhere

Sep 25, 2012

I am using Excel 2003. Looking for a way to find out whether some data I want to delete in a sheet is used by a formula somewhere else within the file. Is there a way to check that? In other words, I have the number 500 in A1, and I want to delete it, but I don't know whether it will impact a calculation on another sheet that involves that value in A1.
