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).
I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.
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.
The formula below calculates appropriately, however, if any of the cells (E12,E14, E21, E22, E28, E29) are blank, it returns a #VALUE! error. I would like the cell to remain blank. How can I do this? The formula is listed below.
spans over columns A:BM. column headers are in Row 2, data starts in Row 3 the number of rows varies month-to-month in column A, the values are either N or Y. Column B contains xREF numbers, where if the value = N, the xREF is unique; for values = Y, the xREF = an N value xREF number (hope that makes sense!) Where column A value = Y, some row cells are empty. All N record cells are populated. starting in Column C, I want all empty cells (basically all rows where column A = Y) to be populated with a VLookup formula where: Ø lookup_value = xREF in column B Ø table_array = all N values records spanning B:BM
I can get it to work for column C by autofilling to the last row but if I autofill across columns, the col_index_num stays the same and I can’t figure out how to increase it by 1 as it autofills across.
Sub RangeLookUp() Dim Rg As Range For x = 3 To Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row If Range("A" & x).Value = "N" Then Set Rg = Range(Range("B3"), Range("BM3").End(xlDown)) ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="TheRange", RefersToR1C1:=Rg End If Next x ' VLookup for blank cells........................
I want to populate a row with text "OFF" if a cell in column A is blank, I need the text to be from column F to Column S, I have a bit of code that finds the blank cell in column A and populates the cell in column F, modifying it to extent to column S.
i have two fields with dates - one field A1 for date authorised (for a data request) and one field B1 for date actioned (data request)
i need a formula to populate in C1 the following:
if A1 is blank then C1 is 'not actioned' if B1 is blank then C1 is 'not complete' if both contain dates then C1 to calculate the number of working days between the dates eg. A1 10.08.09, B1 11.08.09...C1 = 1 working day
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.
the situation is i have a sheet, contains like 500 cells, from A1, to T500, some of the cells are blank, then i figure that from cell A1 to E500 not all the words in capital, so i make it with upper on the2nd sheet, then, i copy + paste value back to the first sheet (A1 to E500)
i get wht i want, but why it's like there's no blank cells anymore on my worksheet.
like you know, if u want to jump from a filled cell to the blank cell, you would hit Ctrl + Down, it jump to the very end of the datas that i paste value before.
so when i hit Ctrl + Down from A1, it jumps to A500, meanwhile the filled cells only 10 cells.
I was curious if it is possible to give a single cell multiple number formats based on what the number is in the cell. So for example if my number is bigger than 1000, I would like to use comas so that it looks like this 1,000. However, if it is less than 1000 I would like it to look more like this 999.00.
I have one column that contains an If statement formula and would like the next column to then work off of the first column (i.e. if that 1st column returns a value then then adjacent column uses that result).
What is happening now is that it is returning #value (because I guess technically the cell isn't blank?)
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.
I'm am trying to combine columns B and C in such a way that the result will appear as B: C when C is populated and B alone when C is not populated. I've tried a variety of functions, and I'm unable to get the result I want. This is my most recent attempt:
in one column of my spreadsheet and it is returning the correct concatenation for the appropriate lines. However, I wish to have the column's cells return an answer of blank (" ") if B15, B16... etc is blank. In other words, at the moment, a correct answer would read something like '1810sd0000' C10 and B15 used, while an incorrect answer would still display '1810', but I want it to be a blank cell.
Using one spreadsheet with three date columns and two columns counting days.
If there is a value in Resolution date, then Column N is blank If there is no value in Submit date and Resolution date, then Column N is blank If there is no value in Resolution date, and there is a value in Submit date, subtract Submit date from todays date to show how many days it has been pending approval
Created on = J4 Submitted on = K4 Resolution Date = L4 Days to Approve = M4 I've got that formula =IF(L4="","",L4-K4) Days Pending Approval= N4 (cell with formula)
If Resoultion Date L4 has a value, return blank If Submit on K4 and Resoultion date L4 are blank, return blank If Resolution date L4 is blank, and Submit on K4 has a value, subtract Todays date from Submit on K4 to show Days Pending Approval
Cell J4______Cell K4______Cell L4__________Cell M4__________Cell N4 Created on___Submit On___Resolution Date___Days to Approve___Days Pending Approval 4/5/13_______blank______Blank____________Blank___________Blank 4/5/13_______4/5/13_____4/7/13___________2_______________Blank 4/5/13_______4/5/13_____Blank____________Blank___________()Today-K4
Im currently writing a payroll sheet within excell and trying to write an IF statement to make a cell blank if referring to another blank cell but it is showing the formula is incorrect. Below is the following IF statement that im using;
My workbook is for financial planning but I'm attempting to streamline an input page (name, birthdate, etc) that will be referenced throughout the entire workbook to trigger automatic calculations (present value, education calculations, etc).
The cell in the input page is a birthdate - which when populated will trigger a cell on a different worksheet to calculate the respective age using this formula:
The problem is if there is nothing written in the birthdate cell then the age cell will automatically calculate 114 (reference photo below). Ideally I'd like that cell to be blank if nothing is in the birthdate cell on the input worksheet. I'm assuming since I'm using an IF formula to calculate the age already then I'll need to use a macro to to an "ignore".
Column E has the amount of time each day. Column G is where I want the Sum to be displayed.
I need Column G to do a =Sum(E4:E33), but if anywhere in between E4 and E33 there is a period of 5 days where it totals 0 then I want column G to re-add from the first day where there is a amount in it.
Ex: E4 to E10 totals 7 (1 per day), from E11 to E15 totals 0, from E16 to E33 totals 18 (1 per day again).
In Column G at G10 it should total 7, at G11 it should be 6, G12 5 etc until it hits G15 where it sees the 5 previous days nothing was entered so it enters a value of 0, because G15 is set to 0, G16 will start adding from E16 till E33, until somewhere down the line it sees another period of 5 days where it adds up to 0 again.
