How To Insert A NULL Value

Aug 8, 2008

When I insert a double quote ("") into a cell as a Null value this causes problems when creating formulas that use the cell.

I've searched many posts to do with Null values but can only find information on checking for a Null value, like ISBLANK().

But, I've not been able to find any information on how to write a formula like
=IF(ISBLANK(A1), "",A1/B1)
and substitute the double quote ("") with a value that is Truly Null?


Return Zero If Zero Else Null

Nov 1, 2012

I'm looking up values from a pivottable.

I have the pivottable options to show nothing if error.

If the pivottable has nothing showing for the quarter I would like the formula to return nothing.

It's currently returning '0%'

So I'm getting the following

Qrt1 = 88%
Qrt2 = 0%
Qrt3 = 0%
Qrt4 = 0%

Average = 22%

The answer I want is

Qrt1 = 88%
Qrt2 =
Qrt3 =
Qrt4 =

Average = 88%

In the pivottable the only quarter that has a value is Qrt1 (88%) - The others are blank

Since there is a chance I could have a qrt with 0% I can't just iqnore the zero when averaging. how to do this?

Here is my formula

=IFERROR(GETPIVOTDATA("HHCompl",DataSelection_units!$A$5,"fldEntity",$A$1,"fldUnit",$A39,"Quarter",B$38)," ")

Counting Cells That Are Not NULL

Aug 25, 2009

I have a large number of customers listed in an excel sheet that may recieve a visit from my organisation. The reason for the visit may vary and sometimes a customer may recieve more than one visit. Each Row (or record) maps to a customer. Each column has a visit type which I insert a date in to say when the customer has been visited.

I am looking for a function that will return if a customer has been visited or not. As dates can be summed like numbers I am currently saying in the "Visits Recieved" column =if(sum of dates (visit type colunm) >0, 1,0) Then I simply sum the column to get my answer of how many csutomers have been visited.

Inserting A Null Cell Using IF

May 28, 2007

I have a simple formula, =IF(A1=0,"",A1) to replace 0 with blank. However ISBLANK doesn't recognize the result as blank, because it's really testing for an empty / unused cell rather than a blank one.

Is there something I can replace the "" with so that ISBLANK returns true?

Ignore Null Data In A Sum

Jul 24, 2009

I have two sheets in my workbook: one holds data (Sheet2), the other processes the data (Sheet1). Sheet2 has temperature data for each hour of every day during the year 1997 - about 9000 rows. Sheet1 averages the temperatures for each day together, and therefore has only 365 rows.

However, some of the data is missing - null values are represented by the value -9999. Sheet1 only averages hourly data if there at least 22 non-null values. If there are fewer than 22 non-null values, a message is written into the cell to indicate such. (See day 119 on Sheet1 in the attached file for an example of this)

I have the formula worked out to this point; however, I'd like to add in one more constraint: if a day has 2 or fewer null values, I still would like to average the data, but omit the null values in the average. (See day 118 on Sheet1 in the attached file for an example of this). My formula so far:

Using Null Value In Formula Created In VBA

Nov 1, 2011

I'm attempting to enter a formula into cells on a spreadsheet through a macro.

I want the formula to read:


but because this is being created within a macro it doesn't like the double quotations.

I can get it to display "0" but i want those cells to be NULL. Right now my only idea is to make an IF statement in the code that doesn't insert a formula in those instances, but I'd like to keep them all as formulas for later changes. Anyway around this dilemma?

Example Code (only a piece):


With Range("F1")
.Value = "=if(isblank(G1),,month(G1))"
.AutoFill Destination:=Range("F1:F" & lastrow)

VBA Setting Variables To Nothing Or Null

Mar 6, 2012

I've been looking at code a lot here and at the end I always see people ending their VBA code by setting the variables to nothing. Why is this done? Don't all the variables in the sub automatically get trashed when the sub ends?

So what would be the difference of me doing:

Sub emailUser(strSubject As String, strMessage As String)
'Allows you to email the user if an error occurs instead of giving a messagebox
'and stopping everything. This way if something can not be checked out, you know
'what happened and can redo it the next morning (or fix the error if need be)

Dim olApp As Object 'Outlook.Application
Dim Msg As Object 'Outlook.MailItem

[Code] .....

Check First 2 Cells Of The Last Row Is Null Or Not

Jan 19, 2009

In a column "V", when the user enter "Y", i need to copy the entire row to another sheet("Written-off"), its working fine.Sometimes the first 2 columns of that entire row where the user enter "Y" may be null, so using my code, copy first entire row where user put "Y" and paste to another sheet("Written-off"), then user also enter "Y" to wherever in "V" column, this time the entire row should overwrite the last row in the "Written-off" sheet.

I found the reason is first column of the last row was null, so when check the first cell, if it is empty then the next entire row should be copied that area.
Is there anyway to check first 2 cells of the last row in a sheet in null or not?

If Right(Left(ActiveCell.Address, 2), 1) = "V" Then
myColumn = "V"
If Intersect(Target, Columns(myColumn)) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
On Error GoTo last
If UCase(Target.Value) = "Y" Then
Target.EntireRow.Copy Sheets("Written-Off").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)(2)
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Exit Sub

Search Cells For Non Null Value

Nov 9, 2006

I'm having a problem with a seemingly simple formula I can't quite figure out. I need to search through four cells, M(n)-P(n), to find out if they have a value in each cell respectably. When the values are found I need them to form a make shift column in which the three cells underneath the cell with the formula are filled with any available values.

For example:
John Smith has the values: 1 in col M, 2 in col N, 3 in col O, and 4 in col P. That is of course ideal and I would be able to fill in the other cells very easy. But in my case John Smith has values: 1 in N, and 2 in P. Or whatever other order you can think of. I wrote a formula that looks like this:


This seems to work if they have a value in column M, but if for instance they dont but have a value in column N instead, it doesn't produce a result. Could someone give me some advice to what I am doing wrong? I am still new at writing formulas, so I'm sure there has to be some function I don't know about that would make this a lot easier.

0 As Valid Value Rather Than Null Or Empty

Apr 3, 2007

I am trying to define some variables as byte, but I want 0 to be a valid value rather than null. When there is no data, that is when I would like for the variable to be null.

Is there a way to accomplish this? In addition, I use the same variables in a loop, which are reset at the beginning of the loop. Is there a way to reset a variable without giving it a value (like 0)?

Summary Of Data Without Zero / Null

eg.: productlist + order amount + sum

Column A: Productname
Column B: Product price

Column D: Total (=B*C 'obviously)

Sheet: Summary = All rows of Masterdata WHERE Product quantity Is Not Null (<>0) starting from row 5 in the summary sheet. note that if a value in quantity has been reset in the Masterdata, the Summary has to be updated. I do not want to use an advanced filter because the whole workbook needs to act like a portable template for various users which once in a while gets updated using external connection with a ms access database. ( Import of access report). I have no idea whether a copy function or customized pivottable (does not works because too much data), ... would do the trick.

Count Unique Dates IF Corresponding Value NOT Null

Nov 6, 2013

I've come across a formula that I can't seem to get my mind fully around. I have a time-tracking sheet for employees that includes, among other fields, DATE and MILEAGE.

In my particular spreadsheet, DATE is from A2:A31 and MILEAGE is from G2:G31. The date column is set to the correct data type (date) and mileage is a general field and only has integers entered into it.

What I would like to do is count the number of unique dates on which mileage has been entered (field is not empty). If the total mileage for a day is less than 20, then do not count it. The reason for this is because an employee is entitled to be compensated for the total mileage of all service calls of a particular day minus 20 kilometers. If an employee, for whatever reason, enters say, 5km for the day, they should not be deducted 15km as would happen if the date was counted.

For example, if Jack traveled a total of 500km spread over 5 days, he is entitled to be compensated for 500 - (20 * 5) = 400km. The trick here is that if Joe has time billed on 6 unique days but only entered mileage on 5 of them, the formula still needs to return 5.

Here is what I have so far:


This formula sums up the total mileage traveled and then subtracts 20 * number of unique days. The problems with it is that it still counts days on which no mileage was claimed (corresponding mileage field is empty). In addition, if the total accumulated mileage for a day is less than 20 then it is also still counted.

Empty Cell Versus Null

Apr 29, 2007

How exactly does Excell treats uninitialized variables ? I have created a function which takes in one of the cell values as a parameter.. However, it seems that when I don't reference an empty cell, the code does not work. Let the function be ABC, and the let the cell be A1

When I use
=ABC(....,A1,....) , it works
However, when I use
=ABC(....,,....) I am getting an eror

Now , I tried using the IsEmpty function , and it seems tht when i use ,, or ,"", then the variable is not caught.. however, the variable is caught when i use an empty cell such as ,A1,

FYI, I am using the vba's formula method to assign this function to a cell. So when I use
"," & ActiveCell.Offset(to reach A1).Value & "," , I see blank ,, when A1 is empty

Averaging Data Not To Include Null / Zero Cells

Mar 10, 2014

I am having difficulty trying to solution this:

Row 1 = Dates e.g. 1-Mar - 31-Mar
Row 2 = Day of Week e.g 1-Mar(B1) = Sat(B2) through 31-Mar ending at (AF)

Column A has hourly time intervals
A3 = 0:00
A4 = 1:00 etc to 23:00

Numbers fall into cells by date/day and interval up to today 10-Mar

What I am trying to do at is average the days separated by Weekdays and the formula at AG for interval for weekday would be =AVERAGE(D3:H3,K3:O3,R3:V3,Y3:AC3,AF3) weekends (Column AH)would be =AVERAGE(B3:C3,I3:J3,P3:Q3,W3:X3,AD3:AE3)

I want to average the weekdays and weekend numbers without having to group the weekdays and weekends in a custom sort in the final column. That way when I add the data every day, it auto calculates in AG and AH. If I do it as it shows above, the AVG is skewed due to the blank cells.

Attached a sample worksheet.

Dividing The Sum Of Two Rows Ignoring Null Entries

Oct 8, 2008

I'm trying to craft a gradesheet for my son's teacher and I am runnning into a problem obtaining a students average. In one row I've listed the possible questions for all the tests whether the test has been taken or not. In the row below I've listed "questions answered correctly" for only the tests they've taken. I need a way to calculate the overall avergae of the student while ingoring columns with null values in the "questions answered correctly" row.

I know there is a way to ignore zeroes by excluding them with an IF statement but I didn't want to do that in case one of the students actually did get a zero. As the attached example shows the simple sum function renders a 25% average while the average should actually be 50%.
