Find First Blank Row Ignoring Formulas Returning Empty Text

Oct 2, 2007

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.

How To Average Large Formulas Ignoring 0 And Blank

Jun 20, 2014

So in Cell K12 there is a rather large formula (I condensed it for this example).

This formula is to average out the respective cells in column J. For each cell there is a possibility of 9 different entries. NRT, N/O, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

So based on the formula in K12 I need Cell J12 to Display the answer.

if any one of the Cells referenced in the formula are NRT then I need it to Display NRT. Which the Formula does now.

The problem comes in when a Cell is N/O (Not Observed)

How do I get the formula to Ignore N/O currently I have it set up to recognize N/O as 0. But excel averages 0 in and it affects the answer.

I know in a simple formula I can add <>0 to the formula to ignore zeros. How to write it into a bigger formula such as in K12.

For example the current numbers in Cells J17:J25 should average 5 however the formula averages it as 1 because it calculates N/O as 0.

Ignoring Blank Cells/commonly Occuring Text

Feb 14, 2007

1. First thing I am trying to do. I have a column of cells that have multiple values, some with text and some with no values at all. I want to be able to display in A1 the most commonly occurring text in cells C1:C15, and be able to display in B1 the number of times that A1 occurs in the same range. Below are the formulas that I am using. There are two problems that I am running into: First, the formula returns a #NA error if any of the cells in the range are left blank. Second, the formula counts the spaces or zeros, so if there are more blanks than the word ďamberĒ then A1 returns ď Ē and B1 returns the corresponding number.

A1
=INDEX(C1:C15,(MODE(MATCH(C1:C15,C1:C15,0))))

B1
=COUNTIF(C1:C16,A1)

2. Second thing I am trying to do. In A2 I want to display the second most commonly occurring text in the range, with itís corresponding count in cell B2, and the third most in A3 and B3, etc

Illustration:

C1 Amber
C2 Red
C3
C4
C5
C6 Red

Desired result:

A1 "Red" B1 "2"
A2 "Amber" B2 "1"

Results with forumla as posted

A1 " " B1 "3"

Sort Dates Linked To Formulas Also Returning Text

Jun 18, 2007

I have a list of football fixtures that I want to pace in date order. The fixtures are however linked to a grid which has the following formula =IF(FIXTURES!C1="","",FIXTURES!C1 )

so that a zero doesn't appear until a result is actually added. Unfortunately when you sort the fixtures into date order the grid still looks at the original square, NOT the moved one appertaining to the fixture.

Hide/Filter Rows Containing Formulas, But No Data. Empty Text

May 8, 2008

I am developing a spreadsheet that, once all the code is run has numerous sheets added. On these sheets I have a significant number of rows that contain no data and could be hidden (I dont want to remove them, because later I need to re- import all these rows back to my master sheet). I tried code I found in the forum to hide a row if it is empty but this doesnt work as some of the cells contain formulaes referencing back to another sheet that is hidden.

I am trying, and failing, to write code to hide a row that contains no actual data, but still has formulas in some of the cells.

Returning The Contents Of A Non-empty Cell In A Range Of Empty Cells

Jan 8, 2008

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!

Sort Formulae Returning Nothing ("" Empty Text) To Bottom

Mar 26, 2008

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.

Hide Rows Based On Multiple Columns Formula Returning Empty Text ""

May 13, 2008

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.

Ignoring Empty Lines And Still Having AutoFilter Function

May 30, 2008

I'm building a sales tracking list and I have empty rows between each entry to allow easier viewing of the data. When I add the empty row to act as a "visual space" between line entries, auto filter only sees the first line of text and not all 400 rows separated by empty rows.

Return List - Ignoring Empty Cells

Nov 24, 2008

I don't know if this is best in a formula or macro but what I am trying to do is create a list of data with no empty cells from a list of data with empty cells.

What I want to say is if A1 is blank move to A2, if it's not return the value in A1 to B1. If A1 and A2 are blank then return the value in A3 to B1 and so on. Generally it's a sort function but I want it to happen automatcially and lkeep all my values in the original order

Original Version:

Date 1/4 Value 1/4
23/02/199913.506

5/05/199911.901

14/05/199912.152

29/07/199911.828

2/09/199910.473

Find And Replace Empty Text

Nov 5, 2009

I'm having this problem whereby a few cells in my work contain empty texts. An empty text is represented textually in VBA with a pair of double quotation marks with nothing inside (I think).

This means that the cells don't display anything visible, but are not blank/empty.

So what happens is that formulas such as ISBLANK(), COUNTA(), etc. are returning unexpected results.

Compare Formulas Ignoring Range References

Dec 20, 2006

I would like to rotate a Line Chart 90 degrees. I tried using an XY scatter chart but my Y-axis would be time values which are somewhat random but increasing. I would like to keep the spacing between plot points consistent (Y-axis spacing). I could simply use a number list for my Y-values to get consistent spacing but then I lose the time information. I donít necessarily need the time value on the Y-axis if I could get the information to display when mousing over the plot point. Any ideas on how I could accomplish this?

MATCH For Multiple Criteria While Ignoring Empty Array Cells

Using Two IF Formulas (3 Or More To Count If Other IF Formulas Are Actually Returning A Value)

Aug 24, 2009

I have a spreadhseet with various functions on it and what I am trying to do is this.

Cell E4 returns a >35 or <35 true or false value
Cell G4 is either blank or has "Yes" text type into it.

What I am trying to do is get cell F4 to return certain arguments.

E4 = >35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Email Hiring Manager"
E4 = ,35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Wait"

I have a basic IF formula that returns this
=IF(E4>35,"Email Hiring Manager","Wait")

Then if cell G4 is populated with a Yes the formula needs to overwirte the origonal if with the return arguments of
=IF(G4="Yes","Email Agency","Email Hiring Manager")

If yes then what would be Email Hiring Manager (yes will only be input if E4 is greater than 35) will be overwritten with "Email Agency"

Can this be done with two If formulas or does there need to be 3 or more to count if other IF formulas are actually returning a value?

Ignoring Blank Cells In IF Statement

Aug 10, 2009

I've got four columns of data. The first column contains pricing for a bunch of products from our company. The other three columns contain pricing for three other competitors. So for example:

Product | Our Price | Comp1 Price | Comp2 Price | Comp3 Price
Gloves | $4.59 | $5.00 |$6.00 | $3.56
Hats | $5.00 | | | $4.59

In column G right after Comp3 Price I have an IF statement that says if Comp1 Price is less than Comp2 Price, Comp3 Price, and Our Price, to print "Comp3" in that cell. If it is not less than the comparable data, then check Comp2 Price then Comp3 price in the same fashion. If Comp1, Comp2, or Comp3 is not less than Our Price then print "My Company Name." This will allow me to see who has the lowest price for that product and also tell me if that lowest price is lower than our price.

My problem is that I can't get it to work out so Excel ignores blank cells. So for example, Comp3 has the lowest price amongst our competitors for hats and is also lower than ours. But when I check for Comp3 price being lower than Comp1 and Comp2, it comes back as negative because Excel sees those cells as zeroes even though they're blank. My formula is:

=IF(AND(C2<D2,C2<E2,C2<B2),"COMP1",IF(AND(D2<E2,D2<C2,D2<B2),"COMP2",IF(AND(E2<C2,E2<D2,E2<B2),"COMP 3","MYCOMPANY")))

This would do exactly what I need Excel to do if it would ignore the blank cells. The problem is that Comp3 has pricing for hats because they offer hats, but comp1 and Comp2 don't offer hats at all, so naturally Comp3 has the lowest price; however, according to Excel Comp1 and Comp2 have the lowest price because the cells are blank and counted as zeroes.

So, does anyone know how to work this out so Comp3 will be counted as the lowest price for hats, ignoring the blank cells of Comp1 and Comp2?

Ignoring Blank Cells In Formula

Feb 5, 2010

I am trying to return the criteria MET, NOT MET & EXCEEDS. This works when each cell contains a number, but when one is blank the formula below returns "EXCEEDS" I'm guessing this is because is sees a blank as zero.

=IF(BN102<$BJ102,"NOT MET",IF(BN102>$BJ102,"EXCEEDS",IF(BN102=$BJ102,"MET")))

I've tried using this alternative but it still returns the same.

=IF(BO102<$BJ102,"NOT MET",IF(BO102>$BJ102,"EXCEEDS",IF(BO102=$BJ102,"MET",IF(ISBLANK(B102)," ",""))))

Basically I need to know how to make excel ignore the blank cell and not see it as zero thus returning "EXCEEDS". Although the cell values are integers they are derived from another cell using the following formula, I'm not sure if this makes any difference

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(BO11,$BH$63:$BI$87,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(BO11,$BH$63:$BI$87,2,FALSE)))

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?

Average Of VLookups Ignoring Blank Cells

Oct 24, 2011

I am trying to get a rolling 8wk avg of a large group of data. I am trying to take the avg of 8 vlookups:

=AVERAGE(VLOOKUP($A$9,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-7,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-14,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-21,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-28,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-35,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-42,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-49,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE))

However, in some cases, the cell to be looked-up may be blank. Using the formula above, the result of these vlookups is "0". I want to take the average of these vlookups excluding the blanks from the 'Raw Data' sheet.

LOOKUP Question Ignoring Blank Cells

I am trying to add up wins and loses for individuals on a team. 6 players
There are 3 games per match and one match a week for 15 weeks. One sheet per week.
The players are inputted randomly each week. And the scores are entered after the match.

The following is a part of the formula that I am using but it returns a #NA because the cells in the weeks not played yet are blank, players and scores. Is there a better way to do this or a way I can ignore the blank cells until they are entered. Thanks in advance.

=SUM(LOOKUP($A$17,'Week 1'!$C$20:$D$23,'Week 1'!$E$20:$E$23),LOOKUP($A$17,'Week 2'!$C$20:$D$23,'Week 2'!$E$20:$E$23),etc.)

A17 is the players name, 1st range is where the players name would be entered, 2nd range is where the score is entered.

Find Text And Insert 6 Blank Rows Above It

May 15, 2013

I have spreadsheet with data all over. I want a macro which identifies the first cell (in Column A) which has the text "BNY" and insert 6 blank rows above the text "BNY" (First text in the Column).

Once, it is done - the macro should also assign names to the last inserted row.

Column A - Should reflect "Bank", Column B should reflect "Field1", Column C should reflect "Field 2" and Column D should reflect "Field 3".

And after the names are assigned - It should also highlight the last inserted row in Yellow.

For Example:
Raw Data (Snap):
Bank
Field 1
Field 2
Field 3

JPM
123
456
789

[Code] .....

Output (After Macro):
Bank
Field 1
Field 2
Field 3

JPM
123
456
789

[Code] .......
