# How To Ignore Blank Cells With Formula

Nov 10, 2011
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 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.

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 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 have a list of assessment scores for students with a matching grade in text form. I want to show the percentage of students that receive "Adv" and "Pro" grades out of the total number of students (cells with data). But I have extra cells in case students are added during the year. I need to have the formula ignore any empty cells and count all of the "Adv" + "Pro" grades divided by number of students with data. I would like to do this by including the extra cells in the formula so I don't need to amend the formula should students be added. This is the formula so far. Maybe there is a totally better way to write this formula.

=SUM(COUNTIF(C7:C60,"*"&{"Pro","Adv"}&"*"))/COUNTA(C7:C60)

I have a table that looks similar to the below. I want to be able to extract the numbers between the brackets and add all up in the last column (as shown in example below).

I have used something like the below however it returns #VALUE in column F because of the empty cells.

(SUMPRODUCT(REPLACE(A1:F5,1,FIND("(",A1:F5),"(")+0))

I need a formula that will be applicable even when there are empty cells and return the results as shown.

In the below code, in the event that a textbox is blank, I get an error. I tried using the "VAL" function but that didn't work as I had anticipated. Is there a function that will allow me to bypass the blank textboxes? I am sure there must be an easier way than an IF statement that validates each textbox, right?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim v As Long, w As Long, x As Long

Dim y As Long, z As Long

v = Me.TextBox1.Value

w = Me.TextBox2.Value * 350

x = Me.TextBox3.Value * 400

y = Me.TextBox4.Value * 400

z = Me.TextBox5.Value

Me.TextBox6 = Format(v + w + x + y, "##,#0.00")

Me.TextBox7 = Format(Sqr(Me.TextBox6.Value) * 4, "##,#0.00")

End Sub

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..

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 am attempting to consolidate multiple worksheets into one. The consolidation works fine on worksheets that have data however, as in my example file, there are worksheets which are presently blank (empty of data) - save for the header row.

The problem:

On consolidation, the header row from the "Empty" worksheet becomes a row in the "master" worksheet that is created. How can a worksheet without data be ignored on consolidation?

i've got a pricing spreadsheet that's doing my head in. hopefully someone can help me with my latest formula issue.

when i expor the file as a pdf, you loose the column names. so...

a b c d e f g h

part ID qty 1 price qty 2 price qty 3 price discount price

i want to calculate the discount price as a perctange of either b/c or d/e or f/g groupinsg (qty break & price for that paricular qty amt). The problem is b/c are populated for all rows. some parts have a secdonary price break (d/e) and some have a tiertary price break (f/g).

I want to take the percentge discount off the high qty price break. So if f/g is populated I want to take it from that. If it's not populated, then e/f. and Only if f/g & e/f are NOT populated do i want to take the discount from b/c. is there a formula i can insert into H to do this?

I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.

I have been trying to import CSV files into Excel on my new computer. I previously had a windows 7 system with office 2007. I have now moved across to a windows 8 system with office 2013. The problem I am faced with is the CSV files which I imported without problems on my old system don't seem to work on the new one. The excel spreadsheet shows the numbers, but when I try and use any formula, the cell comes up with 0, as if there is nothing in the cell. When using my old system, it shows that it is a picture that needs to be converted to text, but I cannot find out how to sort this out in Windows 8. I have even tried various versions of office, 2007, and 2010 on the windows 8 system with the same problem. I have tried all the things I have found online, checking the regional settings and those type of things.

=(SUMPRODUCT((D6:D300="a")*(F6:F300="MATT")*(J6:J300)))

Count all A's that are also Matt and add up the corresponding figs in J. If use the formula above to 179 (where there are values in the cells) then I get the answer 170 which is correct. Currently with the it set to review all cells from 6 to 300 which includes blanks then it returns #value therfore I assume it is not coping with the blank cells.

I am trying to return the criteria MET, NOT MET & EXCEEDS. This works when each cell contains a number, but when one is blank the formula below returns "EXCEEDS" I'm guessing this is because is sees a blank as zero.

=IF(BN102<$BJ102,"NOT MET",IF(BN102>$BJ102,"EXCEEDS",IF(BN102=$BJ102,"MET")))

I've tried using this alternative but it still returns the same.

=IF(BO102<$BJ102,"NOT MET",IF(BO102>$BJ102,"EXCEEDS",IF(BO102=$BJ102,"MET",IF(ISBLANK(B102)," ",""))))

Basically I need to know how to make excel ignore the blank cell and not see it as zero thus returning "EXCEEDS". Although the cell values are integers they are derived from another cell using the following formula, I'm not sure if this makes any difference

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(BO11,$BH$63:$BI$87,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(BO11,$BH$63:$BI$87,2,FALSE)))

I'm looking to create a formula that will skip past any blanks until it finds the latest and most up-to-date value.

Some context: I wish to return a latest estimate value to a cell (A5), and this value is updated quarterly. Let's say that the quater 1 value sits in cell A1, Q2 in A2, Q3 in A3 and Q4 in A4. I wish cell A5 to display the latest estimate as soon as a user updates it on a quarterly basis, but default to the previous quarter's estimate if that latest view is unavailable.

I've tried using some IF(ISBLANK...) combinations but am getting nowhere !

NB want to try and avoid Macros across this worksheet so a formula solution would be best.

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?
