# How To Ignore Blank Cells In Formula Counting Days Between Two Dates

Jul 22, 2014
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?

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 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.

a count formula.

Right, Column A on my sheet is the date that the work was completed. First thing is I need to be able to count how much work was completed per month. (I dont know why we have it all in one big sheet rather than monthly sheets but thats too logical!)

Secondly, column I is the number of days that piece of work took to complete. I need to be able to have a formula that looks at the month the work was completed, then total up the number of days that the work took.

(Example, if I have three bit of work completed in October, 1 took a total of 20 days, 1 took 15 and 1 took 10 it would = 45 days)

I know that this should be possible as I've had Excel doing more complex formulas than this.

I have a simple date formula that I want to present "yes" in a cell when another cells date is less then or equal to "Today". I just can't figure out how to make it show my result cell as blank if my date cell is blank?

here is my formula....

=IF(G8 <= TODAY(), "YES", "")

I need to do a total of the dates entered in the RAW DATA sheet that fall in between today's date and 7 days ago. I am comparing it to B3 in sheet 2. Have tried a COUNTIF but cannot get it to work.

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.

Within a user entered range of two dates, I would like to identify the individual calendar date(s) and count the number of Mondays which fall within the specified date range.I will eventually be using the same "Monday" code to find the same data for every day of the week within the dates ranges, but I figured I'd start with Mondays and build from there.

For Example: Date range 1/1/2013 - 1/15/2013 (date ranges could potentially encompass a full business quarter) Within the range, list each of the dates as dates. (used for comparative counting purposes elsewhere in the document)Count the number of Mons, Tues, Weds, Thurs, Fris, and Sats within the date range.Based on the example date ranges above; Mons = 2, Tues through Sats = 3 each.

I'm attempting to write a formula that will allow me to determine the number of days between two dates but to leave the cell with a zero in it if either of the first two date cells are blank or have N/A in them. Here's what I have so far:

=IF(AND(K5="N/A",L5="N/A"),0,L5-K5)

This will give me a zero in the cell if both date cells are blank or will give me the days between if not. How do I get it to also put a zero in the cell if only one of the date cells is blank?

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 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 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'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 “Required 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 “X”

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 “Stock Number and Nomenclature" in tab 6 for a shortage list, ignoring the "blank cells".

Attached is a spreadsheet I am working on that has a series of graphs with defined dynamic ranges. I am having 2 separate issues on 2 different tabs.

1) Ranges named AirRecBra4 (and Bra10); AirComBra4 (and Bra10); AirRemBra4 (and Bra10) are not pulling in data from the correct data points. Instead of using the last 26 data point, they are currently beginning at the top of the column (currently cells 11 to 36 is their respective columns). The formulas are copy and pasted from working offset ranges in the same tab but are reading differently.

2) On the last 6 tabs beginning with Stn Backlog, I want to have defined formulas beginning in cell B119 and continuing downward to at least F200. However, when I add the formulas, the offset reads the formulas as being data and adjusts for that. I do not know how to adjust the dynamic range to ignore formulas in blank cells.

I wanted to determine the number of days between two dates. Specifically, if the initial date is in one month, and the second is in a different month and an output would result a number of days in each month until the final date. BUT I have a large amount of data to do this for in a list view, way to put a formula in excel and just drag down the entire list to get the required information. see below for an example.

The result I'm looking for is the separate the months and only show the relevant months between the two dates in one cell or the adjacent. Something similar to the table outlined below.

I have a formula in column E: =NOW() for the date.

I need a Formula in Column H from H11:H300 such that:

i) when a date is entered in G11 the number in Cell H11 should be a difference between G11 and D11 as in rows 11, 13, &14 and

ii) Until a date is entered in cell G11 the difference should be between E11 and D11 as in ROW 12

Below is an example of what I want.

I would typically consider myself a decent Excel user, but I haven't been able to solve this one. Maybe it's just the lack of sleep now. I am attempting to combine 4 cells into one where the last cell contains a date. Below is the formula I am using:

=B3&" "&C3&" "&D3&" "&TEXT(E3,"m/d/yy")

It works when all of the cells have values, but the only problem I am having is that some of the dates (in column E) are blank. When this cell is blank the default date that displays is "1/0/00." If I add the typical, " " at the end it says the formula has errors. The need for the TEXT(E3,"m/d/yy") for the cells that contain dates is throwing me off.

I have a workbook with two sheets. The first has a list of job positions open, columns designated to stages in the employment process and in these columns, my staff enter the dates that they completed a particular stage.

"Position | Date Opened | Stage 1 | Stage 2 | Stage 3 | Stage 4"

Pos 1 | 01/01/2014 |02/01/14|03/01/14|07/01/14|09/01/14

This has a great number of entries and they are increasing and decreasing every day depening on the amount of jobs available.

On the second sheet, I am trying to set up a table which shows the average working days it is taking to complete each stage, divided into the months in which the job position was opened (i.e. for positions opened in january, the average completion working days for stage 1 was X amount of days etc...)

I have tried using =IF(AND(Logical, Logical),TRUE,FALSE) but this doesn't return any info as the logicals will always be false. I tried the OR function, but that requires only one of the criteria to be true to return a value. What I need is for the formula to return a number of days between two dates, ONLY if the opened date falls in one month.
