# Formula To Ignore Blank Cells And Copy Data That Meets Criteria?

Apr 27, 2014
I have a worksheet (Data) that lists when pupils are in for Nursery sessions during the week. If they are in they have a 3 (hours) by their name in the relevant columns.

In the AM worksheet I now need to pull through a "register" so under each daily heading I need to pull through everyone that has a 3 next to their name under Monday AM / Tuesday AM / Wednesday AM etc. from the Data sheet. However, I don't want it to copy any blank cells. I then need to do the same for the PM sheet.

In cell C1 I hace A1-B1 and in cell DI want to display the status of the cell C1 like this : =IF(C10 ; "NOT OK" ; "OK") This means that when the value of the cell C1 is different then 0 cell D1 will display "NOT OK" and if the value of cell c1 is 0 then D1 will display "OK".

The PROBLEM: Because the cell C1 contains a formula (A1-B1) the D1 cell will display "NOT OK" even if the cell C1 doesn't show any number.

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 have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.

e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?

I have set up a formula to count the occurrences of multiple conditions in a table of data (see below..) the formula reads from 4 cells of criteria but I will not always use the 4 criteria and maybe only need to use say 2 criteria - when I do this my formula doesn't work - my example below shows this... How do I make the formula continue to work when some criteria cells don't have any entries?

This table is a simple example but my main work will have a much larger table (poss. several thousand rows) and probably about 10 criteria cells, so running a big formula with 10 nested IF statements will be too cumbersome... any smart workround for this within the SUMPRODUCT formula?

The top left cell (Fruit) is A1..

FruitColoursTownsNamesApplesRedLondonHarryApplesGreenParisBertPearsBlueLondonFred

PlumsRedVeniceSteveApplesRedLondonBertCriteriaResultFruitPears0ColoursTownsLondonNamesFred

FruitColoursTownsNamesApplesRedLondonHarryApplesGreenParisBertPearsBlueLondonFred

PlumsRedVeniceSteveApplesRedLondonBertCriteriaResultFruitPears0ColoursTownsLondonNamesFred

The formula currently in my Result cell is

=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A6=B10)*(B2:B6=B11)*(C2:C6=B12)*(D2:D6=B13))

which returns 0 and should be 1 in this example...

I have gotten a code. It goes into Sheet 1 and picks up all the Rows (entire row) in which Column A = 1.

Instead of copying the entire row, I need to just copy the row but only specific columns (i.e. Row 2, Column B,C,D,E,G).

Is there a way to specify where it pastes values in Sheet 2 (say from column D) because Column A-C have pre-filled data which do not change. And when it pastes, it has no gaps (despite a gap in the copied columns (i.e. Column F in sheet 1 was skipped)).

VB:

Sub cond_copy()

'assuming the data is in sheet1

Sheets("Sheet1").Select

Sheet2.Range("A2:G5000").ClearContents

[Code] .....

I want to create a sumif formula that will sum the data if it meets five different criteria. I tied to do an “Or” statement in the formula, but it doesn’t work. For example, I want to sum all the rows that contain: Apples, Bananas, Cherries, Pears, and Plums. How do I write the sumif formula so that it will do this?

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'm using the following on the Worksheet_Activate event to update rows with the date, (Cell AD1 contains the current date):

Code:

Range("X2:X2000").Formula = "=IF(IF(ISBLANK(W2),,$AD$1)=0,"""",IF(ISBLANK(W2),,$AD$1))"

Is there a way I can amend it so it only updates those cells which currently have no data?

At the moment it is changing every cell with the date which overwrites existing dates - I want it to update the new stuff only.

Say I have a column of cells filled with numbers that are ascending. What I would like to do is to pick out the first cell that meets my condition. For instance, these cells contain irrational numbers that increase from 0 to 100. I would like a formula to pick out the first cell that exceeds 10.2, and to return the row number of that cell.

In the case of descending numbers, if I would like to pick out the first cell that goes below 10.2, would the formula be the same?

I'm trying to find the correct formula to sum text that meets two criteria. If C2:C1023 is Equal to TEXT from J8 and F2:F1023 is equal to TEXT J4 add up the total times J4 shows up in C2:1023

=SUMPRODUCT(Sheet3!C2:C1023=J8,Sheet3!F2:F1023=J4,Sheet3!C2:C1023)

As per attachment, see data : 2604 Stock.xlsx

On sheet 1 column A and B. On sheets 2 I would like to make a seach tab - so if the people type part of the word or code it must return all the data from sheet 1 to sheet 2 that meets that criteria in full or part thereof. I have tried but can't get it to work, might it be that it is on 2(two) sheets ?

I do not understand code so I really do not know what to do where. Basically it should work as a Ctrl-F (find-all) function.

We were so close!. But it appears that the assumed correct answer only works if there are no repeating N. The repeating N gets the same count as the last Y and it throws off the sum ....

I´m trying to do a macro that changes the color of all fonts in a row if the cell in the column "R" has the date lower than a specific one, something like this:

Dim Data2 As Date

Data2 = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("today")

Range("R12").Select

Do While ActiveCell <> ""

If ActiveCell < Data2 Then

ActiveCell.EntireRow.Select

Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 3

Else

ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate

End If

Loop

But it just don´t work. The macro does that in the first row, than it stops. Do you have another code for this, or another way to do?

I have a row of cells, say, A1 to G1. I wish to sum the values in cells, say, A1, C1, F1 and G1 only. The chosen cells can have values 0, >0 or Blank. How do I sum the values and ignore the blank cell(s) without getting #VALUE!? Filling the blank cells with "0" is not an option.

(Any blank cells may have a value added at a later date).

Edit: I could use multiple 'IF' statements, but this is cumbersome. There must be a simpler way.

I am working on 2 tabs in a workbook.

The first tab has raw data - The second is my summary.

TAB1 -includes

column A = name range column B = Evaluation Result 1 %

column C = Evaluation Result 2 %

column D = Evaluation Result 3 %

column E = Evaluation Result 4 %

TAB 2 on...The remainder of the tabs are summary for each name in column A of Tab1.

each summary tab includes

A3 = name

A7 = Evaluation Results 1

A8 = Evaluation Results 2

A9 = Evaluation Results 3

A10 = Evaluation Results 4

The evaluation results can include any % from 0-100 and can also be blank. I need to count the 0 but ignore the blanks so for example on Evaluation Result 1, Im using

=SUMIF(Tab1!$A:$A,Tab2!$A$3,Tab1!$B:$B)

So I can find the name in the list of names and the % score for the evaluation - however I don't know how to ignore the blank cells. If the cells are blank I would like to see "-". if they are 0% I would like to see the 0%.

I have been using this function to count the number of unique text values in a data set:

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH(B2:B10,B2:B10,0),MATCH(B2:B10,B2:B10,0))>0,1))

It works great if I want to count number of unique text values overall. However, I want to count the occurrences of unique text values if they meet specific criteria. (Like a countifs function would if it could count unique text).

I have this formula which is counting the number of cells in a column that fall within each calender month.

However, if there is a formula at the bottom of column B and C that yield a "", the formula breaks.

In my workbook, B/C:133 have a formula =""

I will need the formula in column E to work if there is a formula that yields a "" in column B and C.

I have a spreadsheet for which I have to set up a formula to get the minimum value from a range of cells, but that range can include blank cells, errors (#DIV/0) and zeros, all of which I want to be ignored. I can work out how to ignore EITHER the zeros

(=MIN(IF(C10:G100,C10:G10)),

or the error cells

(=MIN(IF(ISNUMBER(C9:G9),C9:G9)),

How to exclude both. If I try to combine both of these exclusion criteria it doesn't work and I end up with the answer #DIV/0, which is one of the values I want it to ignore.

I am watching 100 stocks when the stock market opens at 9:30 EST. Not all the stocks will come available to buy or sell at 9:30 but will become available at different time intervals, sometimes 10 minutes after the market opens. When a stock opens it is common for it to spike up, then spike down, then go into a "normal" trading pattern, this is called a slingshot pattern.

If I have a predetermined price up or down for 100 stocks, how can I write a macro that will look at the stock prices and if it shoots above or below a certain value it will submit a buy or sell order? (I already know how to submit the buy or sell orders, just need to get an idea of how to get the macro to constantly check the prices and if it meets my criteria to take action.)

Note: I already have a macro running at one minute intervals to collect data. One minute intervals is to long, I need it in second intervals or less to pick up the slingshot pattern. Is this possible?

I have tried to set up a list of cells to highlight in red any numerical values which are greater than 0 using conditional formatting. This works fine, except that all blank cells are also highlighted in red. Formula is currently: cell value is greater than 0. What do I need to do to ignore the empty cells?

Excel 2004 for Mac

I'd like to give a conditional format to a range of cells so that only one cell in the range has a gray background. The condition must include three criteria:

1) The cell cannot be blank, AND

2) The cell's value must be the minimum in the range, AND

3) The cell's value must not equal any value preceding it in the range.

My own attempt looks like this for cell J8 in the range C8:AF8:

=AND(NOT(ISBLANK(J8)),J8=MIN($C8:$AF8),J8$C8:I8)

Problem: This condition works great for all values entered EXCEPT ZERO. When J8 is the first zero in the range, if it is preceded by a blank cell anywhere else in the range, it fails the third criterion (J8$C8:I8) because Excel treats the blank cell as though it's a zero. Result: no gray background.

How can I get Excel to "ignore" blank cells.

I have 2 sheets, sheet1 and sheet2. On sheet1 I have a cell (w,3) which displays either "OK" or "Needed". It will be like this for every row on the sheet. On sheet2 I have more information. I have been trying to create a macro or VB function that everytime the workbook is opened will scan the entire column W for any that say "needed" and if/when one is found copy the data in the cell in column A of the same row from sheet1 to column A of the first blank row in sheet2.

So say cell w,6 displays "needed", I then want to have cell a,6 copied from sheet1 to sheet2 into the first column A that is blank. I don't really care if when w,6 changes to "OK" it removes the entry on sheet2 or not, in fact if it does that would be great.

Here is the code that seems to be not so complicated and has copied information from one sheet to another, can't get it to work consistantly. I copied it off a similar post on this site and am not sure what the last value = "1" is doing but I doubt its helping my cause. The cell I need to trigger the action is in the 23 column, the cell I need copied is always in the first and the cell I need it to be copied into on the 2nd sheet is always in the first column as well. I'm pretty good with regular logical statements but I feel that a lack of knowledge about all the available commands is really whats hurting me on this....

I've got a work book (2010 btw) with several tabs.

On tab 5 is an inventory list with "Stock Number and Nomenclature" merged in row A7-Q7 and down to row A23-Q23.

Beside each Item there are â€śRequired Quantities (EA)" in Colum U7-U23. After an inventory is executed, The values are placed in Colum V7-V23 (INV).

Stock Number Nomenclature EA Inv

34419-43450 Mission Modu 1 â€śXâ€ť

After inventorying.... I need a formula that "compares the required quantities (EA) to the actual inventoried values (X)".

IF the actual inventoried quantities are equal to or greater than "Required Quantities" - Display Nothing in tab 6

IF the actual inventoried quantities are LESS than the "Required Quantities" - Display â€śStock Number and Nomenclature" in tab 6 for a shortage list, ignoring the "blank cells".
