## Check For Blank Cells In Range

Aug 25, 2007

I have X amount of cells (formulasheet) , these are used to input data, which is then summarized into a sheet on the same file. I'm trying to find a code that forces the user to fill out all the fields. If the user do not, the "submit button" will not proceed, at least not work. Almost like a forum registrating, where it is required to fill it all some mandatory fields in order to proceed.

The cells datatypes are mixed, some are Integer and some are String.

Is there anyway that are code can be written "if the cell(s) is FALSE (nothing in the cell) then display message.

## Formula To Tell If Range Has All Blank Cells In It?

Nov 13, 2012

I have a spreadsheet where I want to filter out a row if the entire row has zeros across all the columns. I cannot just use a Sum() formula because some of the numbers are negative and there is a chance it could zero the sum out.

Currently to do this I am using the following to tell if there are values in each of my rows:

Code:
ABS(K3)+ABS(T3)+ABS(U3)+ABS(V3)+ABS(W3)+ABS(Z3)+ABS(AC3)+ABS(AF3)

Is there any way to write a formula where I don't have to keep adding to the formula when I add another column?

## VBA Dynamic Range Till First Blank But Cells Contain Formula?

Jul 22, 2014

I've normally just dynamically selected a range using the xldown feature but because this row contains formula it goes always down to the bottom of the formula instead of the last cell which isn't blank.

How would i go about generating this dynamic range that stops at the first cell that contains no value (but has a formula)? Perhaps a do while loop which looped down until it hit the first blank and then assigned the cells it had looped through as the range?

## Formula To Make Cell Blank Instead Of Zero

Oct 29, 2009

I am looking for a formula that will work with my current formula, and check that cells a1 and b1 contains information. If they do contain info then the original formula should carry on as usual and leave the answer in cell c1. I also need it so when no information has been entered in cells A1 and B1, C1 will be blank instead of containing a zero.

This is the formula I have at the moment:
=IF(SUM(A1=0,B1>0),B1-A1,"No Charge?")

A B C
10.1810.82

## Check Range & Show Blank Instead Of 0

Apr 23, 2007

See attached spreadsheet for example of the sheet I am using.

Problem 1.

Columns C and D show me figures when the number in col A is > 2500 or < 550 when these criteria are not met a 0 is displayed in the cell, is it possible to alter my formula so that nothing (a blank cell) is displayed rather than a 0 - I am wondering if there is something like null which I can use?

=IF(A4>2500,A4,)
=IF(A4<550,A4,)

Problem 2.

In column E (normal days) I want to display the value of A if it is > 550 but < 2500 - is there a way of doing this in a single formula? Again I would just like a blank to be displayed if the value of A does not meet the above criteria.

## Check For Blank / Empty / Error Cells In Select Case

Aug 3, 2012

I am using a Uderform in order to check if some cells in several columns are higher or lower than values I set in my textboxes.

However, I think I am having a mistake in my code (it runs but doesnt return the correct informations) as I have blank cells in certain columns.

Concretely I am giving 1 point if the criteria is valid (if for example the value in the cell is <= 1) but some of these criteria are 1 when they should be 0.

As I said it runs but I need to add a fix for empty cells / blank cells and if possible N/A error cells in this so that the code gives 0 to the criteria and moves to the next column (next select case)..

## How To Alter Fixed XLSX File To Check For Non Blank Cells

Dec 19, 2012

I have attempted to alter this example to simply check if the cells are not blank by replacing the "X" with "<>", but I get errors in the SMALL function--it looks like the IF statement is just returning an array with all of the values set to FALSE, and none of the values in the array call out a location of the next filled cell.

How could you alter your fixed XLSX file to check for non-blank cells instead of "X" specifically?

## Conditional Formatting Conflict: Change The Cells Font Color And Bolding As Long As The Value Is Within That Date Range

Oct 19, 2006

I have two conditions setup in Options>View - Zero Values.", "style="background: #FFFFFF;padding: 2px;font-size: 10px;width: 550px;"");' onmouseout='GAL_hidepopup();'>formatting.htm" target="_blank">conditional formatting. The first is setup for alternate row coloring with this formula inside Conditional Formatting:

Formula is = MOD(ROW(),2)

My Second Condition is

Cell Value is between \$P\$10 and \$Q\$10. This sets the font bold and a different color. The two cell values are two dates. I want to change the cells font color and bolding as long as the value is within that date range. It works fine, but for cells that are on the row that is colored the second condition doesn't apply for some reason.

## Ignore Blank Cells And Truly Blank Cells In Named Range?

Ok so my named range looks like this:

Basically, looking at the range E6:L19 I need to ensure that any data that is entered into any of these cells ends in either H or W, and if it doesn't flags up a warning message (which I am hoping to link in with the Worksheet_SelectionChange event)

I'm managing it for one cell, but not a whole range.

## Searching For Multiple Characters Within Range Of Cells?

Dec 10, 2013

The following code works fine to determine if a particular character occurs within the selected range of cells:

Code:
Sub CheckIfCharacterIncluded()
For Each MyCell In Selection
If InStr(MyCell.Formula, "#") Then
MsgBox ("The " & "#" & " character was found in cell: " & MyCell.Address & " at position " & InStr(MyCell.Formula, "#"))
End If
Next
End Sub

However, I would like to extend this functionality to check for multiple characters, using some sort of array that contains all the characters I want to check for e.g. "#","*","£" and so on, without having to repeat the above code for each character for which I need to check.

## Search For Specific Characters In A Range Of Cells

Oct 5, 2008

I have a column of values of peoples initials and I want to cound how many times one persons initials occur in those cells. I can do this if the cells just contain one person i.e. "CH" or "DH" but if the cell has two or more peoples initials i.e. "CD DH" I can't do it as it only matches the exact search criteria.

How can I total the numebr of times a required set of initials appears in a specific column of cells? Not bothered is it requires a macro or a formulae, just can't seem to figure this one out.

## Formula To Check For A Value In A Range

Apr 23, 2006

is there a way to check for a value in a range, and return the value if it is not in the range, else return nothing?

H1 =85

B | C | D
25 | 50 | 75
40 | 30 | 10
12 | 9 | 66

None of the following IF statements will work:

{=If(\$B2:\$C4="","",If(B\$2:C\$4<>H\$1,H\$1,"")}
{=If(\$B2:\$C4="","",If(B\$2:C\$4=H\$1,"",H\$1)}

## Remove Characters / Spaces After Text For All Cells Within Range

Oct 12, 2013

Initially I'm simply copying a data table from a web page using "Ctrl + A" then "Ctrl + C", and then pasting the data straight onto a new worksheet so I can work with it. (After temporarily re-naming the old sheet)

But I keep finding what looks like double-spaces after some of the important text within the Range of cells I'm working with. I need to be able to select & conditional format the values of the text in some columns of the sheet, so need to loose these trailing spaces.

Unfortunately, it's not consistence as to how many spaces trail the text I need. Sometimes it's only one space, sometimes its two spaces ?

So far, I've had mixed success with a recorded "Replace" code but none of the other codes I have found on forum pages either don't work all or seem to give any consistent results. E;g; TRIM, CLEAN

I suspect my problem is, I do not know how to call the code properly, or trying to work with too large a range ?

The start of my code reads:

Code:

Sheets("Data").Select
Sheets("Data").Name = "Old Data"
Sheets(Sheets.Count).Select
ActiveSheet.Name = "Data"

[Code]...

' At the moment I'm using to select the pasted range I want to work on: Range(Range("C46"), Range("C46").SpecialCells(xlLastCell)).Select

This is where I need a code to work on the new Data sheet and remove all the trailing characters.

MsgBox "All data cleaned successfully !", vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "All Done"
