Graphing Blank Cells In Excel?

Jul 23, 2012

I'm having some problems with graphing 'blank' cells for my thesis work.

I am filling in data still as I go, and I'm trying to set up my graphs as well so I can easily go in later and modify, fill in more data, or whatever. But all the cells I've formatted as coming back blank are labelled as zeros on the Excel graph. I tried putting in to return #N/A but then Excel is still graphing the cells as zeros. Frustrating. I really do not want to have to recopy over 1000 data points, find the zeros, and cut them out later, I'll have enough to do writing the dang thing. How to modify the formula to have it correctly skip the points when graphing (it's a line graph)?

This is the current formula I'm using. =IFERROR(AVERAGE(C41:Y41), "")

And I put in =IFERROR(AVERAGE(C41:Y41), "#N/A"), which shows the cell as #N/A (which, I'd much rather it be blank, as then I can read the data easier), but it is still graphing as 0.

Excel 2010 :: Graphing Binary Data

Dec 10, 2012

How do I graph this data? I am plotting the test results (Column A is the employee number, B is the Employee name, then each of the questions are Columns D through DX with DY being the total correct by each employee) (Rows are employees and then the Ratio that the question was answered correctly) The goal is to find questions that are routinely answered in correct or that have a problem with the question.

I was hoping to graph the correct and incorrect questions so those that are either high frequency correct, incorrect or not answerd identified I can improve the test.

Example of the spreadsheet. I am using =COUNTIF(D3:D15,"1")/12 for the ratio answered correct - this should also see the ones not answered as incorrect. 1 = correct answer 0 = incorrcet null=not answered

NO
Employee Name
Question
1
2
3

[Code]...

How can I graph these results to answer which questions have a high frequency of incorrect answers? I am thinking some kind of scatter plot.

Excel 2003 :: Conditional Format Top / Mid / Bottom 33% Of Cells But Ignoring Blank Cells

Mar 25, 2012

I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....

Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003)
Top 34%:
=IF(INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D\$38)*34%)>0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*34%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*67%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*100%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))

Excel 2010 :: Color Fill A Range Of Cells If Specific Cells Not Blank

Feb 7, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 and basically i am trying to fill a range of cell with a green color if any value was enter in a specific cells. Example: I would like to fill range: A10:c13 with a green color (regardless of the cells content in this range) if a value was entered in cell C10 or C11 or C12 or C13.

I've tried conditional formatting but unfortunately I'll have to apply formatting for every cell and for a range of over hundred cells is not efficient.

Excel 2010 :: Average Non-Blank Or Zero Cells

Sep 10, 2012

I have a sequence of 40 columns of data, representing 10 weeks worth of events with 4 values per week

I need to average the first pair for each week, ignoring zeros and blanks, and also separately the 2nd pair of cells, across the whole 40 columns

I am trying to come up with a neater solution which takes into account the zeros, at the moment I have the following which does not, for row 34

=IF(\$AR34>0,ROUND(AVERAGE(D34:E34,H34:I34,L34:M34,P34:Q34,T34:U34,
X34:Y34,AB34:AC34,AF34:AG34,AJ34:AK34,AN34:AO34)*2,2),0)

I could use SUM, COUNT COUNTIF etc but its gonna get messy

Excel 2011 :: Sorting Blank Cells To The Top Of List

Feb 5, 2013

I am trying to sort a list of business development leads. When a lead is dead I enter the date in the column entitled "Closed". Therefore, the Closed cell for active leads is blank. Whilst I still wish to retain the information of dead leads, when sorting I would like them listed at the bottom of the list. However, whenever I sort on the Closed column, whether using newest to oldest or oldest to newest, the blank cells are always at the bottom, instead of the top.

How to get the sorted blank cells to the top?

Save Excel File To CSV With Blank Cells With Formula Without Getting Commas?

Mar 20, 2014

I am working on a excel file that has a sheet that i want to convert to .csv. The sheet has formula's for the first three column that are warped an if statement that returns "" (blank) if certain conditions are not meet. However when i got to save the file as a csv i get a file with ",,,,,,," where there is no data. I would like to save csv and have only commas where this data.

Example
When i convert a sheet like
Firstname Lastname Password
Tim Cats Bo3n9x

it saves as
Firstname Lastname Password
Tim Cats Bo3n9x
,,,
,,,
,,,

In the .csv file.

Excel 2007 :: Inserting Number Of Blank Rows Between Cells

Mar 5, 2013

I have a worksheet with four data columns A,B,C,D starting in row 2. I want to add between every row, exactly 11 blank rows. So if we have:

Code:

A B C D

1 5 3 4
2 7 6 3
3 9 1 3

the end result should be:

Code:

A B C D

1 5 3 4
2 7 6 3
3 9 1 3

Do I necessarily need a macro for this? Or is there another quick and creative way to achieve this result?

Excel 2010 :: Autofill Entering Data Against Blank Cells

Jan 23, 2014

In earlier versions if I used the double clicked the autofill handle it would only fill down to the next adjacent cell containing data. Now it fills down to the bottom of all the data regardless of whether there is a blank cell or not e.g

X X X Z
X X X Z
X X X Z
X X
X X X

Now this happens

X X X Z
X X X Z
X X X Z
X X ...Z
X X X Z

How can I stop this as I need to enter different data in the next section?

Excel Function To Return Nearest Non Blank Cell Value From Rectangular Array Of Cells

Jan 10, 2014

Assume you have a rectangular range. Say A1:M18. There are values in some random cells (any number of cells) within the range. The rest of cells are blank. In cell M19 (ie cell below the bottom right corner of the range), I need a excel function that returns the nearest (ie physical location) non blank cell value. I have searched the internet for weeks. The closest formula is the following (see below) but it is flawed as it returns zero if there are values in rows below the row of the nearest cell with non blank...and also zero if there is value in a column greater than the column of the nearest cell with non blank.

Closest formula so far:
INDEX(A1:M18,LARGE(IF(ISBLANK(A1:M18),"",ROW(A1:M18)),1)-ROW(A1:M18)+1,LARGE(IF(ISBLANK(A1:M18),"",COLUMN(A1:M18)),1)-COLUMN(A1:M18)+1).

And the function should be relative not absolute as the range can be extended..but the location of the formula remain same relative to the array size. (ie. always at below the right bottom cell).

NOTE: Ignore the special case where two non blank cells are the nearest. That will not happen.

Excel 2007 :: Copy Column Of Data To New Location Ignoring Blank Cells

Excel 2010 :: SUMPRODUCT Answer To Return Blank When No Data In Specific Cells

May 12, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 and I am trying to average the amount of days in a month to a daily average per person in my worksheet.

Total sales per person
A5 = 10 - This is the Grand total per person for column A
A6 =4
A7=6

Daily average per person
C5=2.6 - Average for all persons here
C6=2.0
C7=3.0

The formula I am using is:

=(SUMPRODUCT(\$A\$6:\$A\$15,C6:C15))/\$A5

Which gives me an answer of 2.6 in cell C5 as shown above which is what I am wanting.

Please note that my cell range for my staff goes from 6-15 for both Column A and C where the other cells are blank in both columns.

My question is, If I was to clear all the data in both Columns A6:A15 and C:6:C15, cell C5 would return to a #VALUE. How to I change the formula so that if the cells were Blank, cell C5 would also be blank until I enter data for each person again?

Excel 2010 :: Filter To Select Records - Removing Unwanted Blank Cells

Ignore Blank Cells And Truly Blank Cells In Named Range?

Jan 13, 2014

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.

Excel 2010 :: VLookup Result Blank If Column Index Number Is Blank

Fill In Blank Cells Referencing Non-Blank Cells Above

Apr 17, 2008

I have sporadic cell values in a column. I will be describing the lamen logic I use to fill in these blanks manually. Find the first nonblank cell in the column, then look for the next nonblank cell in the column. I count the number of blank cells in between. If even # of blank cells, then I give the first half of the blanks the value of the first nonblank cell and the second half of the blank cells the value of the next nonblanck. If odd # of blank cells, then I do the same with the exception that the odd cell that falls in the middle will be randomly designated the value of the either first or second nonblank cell.

Count Blank Cells Within A Range Not Including Fully Blank Rows

Jul 15, 2008

I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

=COUNTBLANK(C6:AD2506)

But I dont want it to count the cells if the entire row, within that cell, i.e. C6:AD6, is blank.

It should only count the blank cells within a row if there has been some data entered on that row..provided it has been entered within the specified range.

How To Populate Blank Cells With Sequence Until Non Blank Cell Is Encountered

Mar 22, 2014

I presume this is fairly simple to do, since it's certainly easy enough to do manually by filling in a couple of rows and dragging them down, but I need it to be performed in a macro that I can run before other macros run.

What I need specifically is for the macro to go to G1 and insert the number .01... Then go to G2 and insert .02... Then G3 and insert .03... And repeat this until it finds the first non-blank cell ( row number this occurs at varies), at which point it ends and does nothing to that populated cell or any other cell in the column thereafter (including other blanks farther down).

This all needs to be done in Arial, 10pt, white.

Imported Data Creates Blank Cells That Aren't Really Blank

Feb 21, 2006

Here's what I'm attempting to do: For each column, X,Y, Z, I am attempting
to count nonblanks. However, the data was imported from Access and Oracle,
and Excel treats what appear to be blank cells as nonblanks. I've tested
this theory by highlighting a couple of "blank" cells and deleting them, and
my count changes. So, can I get Excel to put a value into my "blank" cells,
so then I could filter it out, or create a formula that would only count
dates in my columns (which is what I'm after).

This is what I'm looking at:

A B C
1 2/4/2006 2/6/2006 ("blank")
2 ("blank") 12/13/2005 1/7/2006
3 2/20/2006 1/15/2006 ("blank")

In each column if I use a COUNTA I'll get a total of 3, instead of 2 for A,
3 for B and 1 for C.

List - Filling In Each Blank Cells With Value Contained In First Non-blank Cell Above It

Feb 27, 2013

I have a list that looks something like this:

Column B

Row 4 Item 1
Row 5 Item 2
Row 6
Row 7
Row 8 Item 3
Row 9
Row 10 Item 4
Row 11
Row 12
Row 13
Row 14 Item 5

The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"

I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.

Graphing Every Second Column Of A Row?
