I am trying to build a macro that test for the value of each cell of a range (in a column), and if found, then the value of the cell of the same row (another column) will be set to 1. If not, then the macro writes a formula to get some data from BBG (this part is ok). this is what I have done so far but I have an error message, telling me "Not Else with out if" .

Code:

Sub Fx()

With Worksheets("DivRelease")

Dim LastLig As Long

[Code].....

I want to reference 2 cells to open a msgbox. Currently I use this formula in a cell "=IF(E4="C",IF(A4>30,"OT","")) I am trying to write a macro that will open a msgbox instead. This is what I've tried so far

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target(1, 1).Address = "$E$4" Then

If Target(1, 2).Address = "$A$4" Then

If Target(1, 1) = "C" Then

If Target(1, 2) > "30" Then MsgBox("1")

End If

If Target(1, 1).Address = "$E$4" Then

If Target(1, 2).Address = "$A$4" Then

Target(1, 1) = "F" Then

Target(1,2) > "38" Then MsgBox("2")

End If

I want to add an IF statement to my macro that will run only if a cell on the worksheet is not blank (empty). I know how to use the if statements but can't figure out how to test a cell for contents.

View 4 Replies View RelatedI'm testing to see if a cell has nothing in it, and if that is true then it will execute the code. My problem is that even though the cell is blank the field does have a drop down list (list validation set for that field) below is the code i used, but doesn't work.

If Range("b3").Value = " " Then

I am looking for an IF statement that would leave a balance cell blank if both the revenue and expense cells are blank, otherwise a formula would be calculated.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI am trying to determine Long Term Gain (LTG,) Long Term Loss (LTL,) Short Term Gain (STG,) Short term Loss (STL,) or No Loss nor Gain (NGL)testing two cells (A1 and B1)and setting a third cell (C1) to the text LTG, LTL, STG, STL, or NGL depending on the results of testing cells A1 and B1.

A1 represent a number of years and B1 represent gains or losses (negative)in dolars.

The way I see the logic is as follows:

If cell A1 or cell B1 are either one of them equal to 0, then it is neither a Gain nor a Loss (NGL.)

If cell A1 is greater than or equal to 1, then it is Long Term; else, if A1 is greater than 0 and less than 1, then it is Short Term.

On the other hand, if cell B1 is greater than 0, then it is a Gain; if B1 is less than 0 (a negative number,) then, it is a Loss.

I need to find (if it is posible in Excel) one formula to test the two cells for posible outcomes:

If A1 = 0 then C1 = NGL

If B1 = 0 then C1 = NGL

If A1 >= 1 and B1 > 0 the C1 = LTG.

If A1 >= 1 and B1 < 0 the C1 = LTL.

If A1 < 1 and B1 > 0 then C1 = STG

If A1 < 1 and B1 < 0 then C1 = STL

I can't seem to get this If statement to return an empty cell It returns 0

HTML Code:

=IF(+B7+C7="","", +$C$3-B7+C7)

The formula will go in D7

If either B7 or C7 is empty, leave D7 empty

If either B7 or C7 has a value, add or subtract from $C$3

If a cell is blank, what is the formula that can be used to place a 0 in that spot if the spot is empty. Also, what is the formula to leave a spot blank if no data can be pulled for its formula (to get rid of a #DIV/0! error).

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have a problem with finding the right function. My goal is to have the following function...

The cell D1 has the following function: [=IF(B1<=C1;"YES";"NO")] But I would like to have the cell D1 to be left blank, if the cell A1 is blank.

I have a conditional IF statement, where I want the content of the cell to be blank if the result of the IF statement is false, ie I want the content of the cell to be as if there were no formula in the cell (this if so that the formula COUNTA(Sheet1!$B:$B) only counts the cells where the result is TRUE).

For example, IF(A1=1,1,"") where A1 1, the content of the cell will have something in it (a space), and won't be blank.

I need to sum cells that contain this formula: =if($c$5=0,"",c5*b5). I am getting a wrong data type value error.

View 7 Replies View RelatedI have a nested if statement that doesn't give a blank cell when it is evaluated. The cell is general formatted but results in a '0' in the cell instead of a completely blank cell.

If statement is:

=IF('Sales info'!B16="",'Sales info'!B6,IF('Sales info'!B6="","",'Sales info'!B16))

Why is this giving me a 0?

I am trying to write a statement as follows. IF CELLK11 IS NOT VALUE BLANK AND F11=BLANK THEN TRUE = 1 FALSE = 0.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI've got four columns of data. The first column contains pricing for a bunch of products from our company. The other three columns contain pricing for three other competitors. So for example:

Product | Our Price | Comp1 Price | Comp2 Price | Comp3 Price

Gloves | $4.59 | $5.00 |$6.00 | $3.56

Hats | $5.00 | | | $4.59

In column G right after Comp3 Price I have an IF statement that says if Comp1 Price is less than Comp2 Price, Comp3 Price, and Our Price, to print "Comp3" in that cell. If it is not less than the comparable data, then check Comp2 Price then Comp3 price in the same fashion. If Comp1, Comp2, or Comp3 is not less than Our Price then print "My Company Name." This will allow me to see who has the lowest price for that product and also tell me if that lowest price is lower than our price.

My problem is that I can't get it to work out so Excel ignores blank cells. So for example, Comp3 has the lowest price amongst our competitors for hats and is also lower than ours. But when I check for Comp3 price being lower than Comp1 and Comp2, it comes back as negative because Excel sees those cells as zeroes even though they're blank. My formula is:

=IF(AND(C2<D2,C2<E2,C2<B2),"COMP1",IF(AND(D2<E2,D2<C2,D2<B2),"COMP2",IF(AND(E2<C2,E2<D2,E2<B2),"COMP 3","MYCOMPANY")))

This would do exactly what I need Excel to do if it would ignore the blank cells. The problem is that Comp3 has pricing for hats because they offer hats, but comp1 and Comp2 don't offer hats at all, so naturally Comp3 has the lowest price; however, according to Excel Comp1 and Comp2 have the lowest price because the cells are blank and counted as zeroes.

So, does anyone know how to work this out so Comp3 will be counted as the lowest price for hats, ignoring the blank cells of Comp1 and Comp2?

=IF($T$50=Controls!$B$2),"GO",IF(AND($E$52=3,Controls!$B$3=1.3,$U$1=8,$AB$1>=Controls!$B$2),"GO","")))

Why do I get a FALSE statement with this formula when T50=1, i want it to be blank.

No Profit

#1 If there is an amount in column B, I want column D to reflect that amount.

#2 If there is no amount in column B, I want column D to state the words "No Profit."

#3 Already in column B is the formula =C1-A1.

I tried =IF(B1=0,"No Profit",B1) but when I copy that formula down the spreadsheet, it inserts "No Profit" into all of column D. I only want "No Profit" to exist when there is a $0 resulting from the formula mentioned in point #3. When there is a blank cell in column D, I want it to remain blank until an amount is entered in that row?

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".

How do I test if a cell has #N/A?

View 4 Replies View RelatedI need a UDF to test a single cell if it is colored. If it is the result returned should be a 1, if not the result will be blank. This is what I have so far, but I don't know much about VBA.

I need to take a specific action when a cell has an actual formula in it versus when it just has a "value". Is there a procedure or command which will allow me to identify if a certain cell has a "formula" (like =sum(a1: a5) ) or just a value.

View 3 Replies View RelatedIs there formula to use if I want an IF statement to add a date "TODAY()" to a cell if a corresponding cell is highlighted? I would search for this in the archives if I had a clue what to search for. "Conditional formatting", maybe?

In Col J "Appt. Date", I want to add today's date if the cell in Col C of that row is green.

How would that work? My worksheet is posted below: ......

I find myself needing this often and hope there is an elegant formula that can make this easier.

Is there a formula that will test if a particular cell is referenced somewhere in another array or vector? Specifically, I find that I have to aggregate long lists into categories to fit budget formats of various lenders and investors. For example, my detail budget has separate rows for Water, Sewer, Garbage, Electrical, and Gas. These expenses have to be aggregated on one funders budgets as Utilities. Sometimes after going through this I find that my totals dont add up, i.e. I left an item out of the aggregated budget. I would like to be able to add a column on the detail budget to test if each budget item has been referenced in the aggregated budget.

Basically I have a column (lets call it column A) whereby I manually fill the cells green once I have received some documents, another column which has a numeric value in it (column B) and I want to create a third column which basically just copies column B but ONLY if column A is filled with a colour (actual colour doesn't matter cause I only use green)

I tried using the IF function but I don't know how to use cell colour as the logical test

I'm trying to write a macro to test whether a cell has any neighbouring cells that match it's value.

I'd like this to be cumulative so that the more matches, the higher the value.

I'd then like the result to be written in another cell to set up a separate grid.

So far I'm getting error messages and I don't know why:

In column AX2:AX2000 there is a value(alpha numeric) MB60176685 and in column AX2:AX2000 there are various values.

I would like to test if any cell in AZ 2:2000 is greater than 200. If yes then blank AZ in that row. If less than 200 go to the next row. The value of AX will remain the same in that row.

SEE EXAMPLE of results BELOW

AX AZ

201

MB400174444 10

MB400174444 155

I have the followinf formula

=IF(A2="","",IF(C2>TODAY(),"",IF(E2="",IF(B2="1st",WORKDAY(A2,4,$H$1),WORKDAY(A2,5,$H$1)),C2)))

What I am trying to do is cause (where the formula is) to:

If A2 is empty, put nothing,

If C2 is greater than today put nothing, otherwise put C2

If E2 is empty then if b2 is "1st" add 4 workdays to A2, otherwise add 5 workdays.

I seem to have a problem with getting the formula to put the value of C2 if it is not greater than today In otherwords if the date in C2 is 6th Jan, i want 6th Jan as the result of the formula.

I need a function that will use a column of text values and test these values

to see if one or more of the values exist in a single cell. If it does I need

the function to return true or false.

Ie. cell A1 contains the text "Jim Smith" the B column contains the test

names (column of test values ) ie. B1 is "bill" B2 is "fred" B3 is "jim".

Because Jim is in the cell A1 I would need the function in C1 to return the

value "true". If A1 contained the text "bob smith" then function in C1 would

return the value "false".
