A1 has a date of 03/10/07
B2 has formula =A1 + 7
I want to copy that formula down the column B2 but if
B3 is empty I get 01/07/1900
How Do I make so that if there's no date entered in
A column I get blank cells but still retain formulas,
I've been running into this issue with other formulas but I couldn't find any solution searching this forum,

I'm trying to create a worksheet to automatically make a football league table update once results are entered. I have entered a formula using the "IF" function which compares scores and then awards points. However before a game is played and the cells are left blank, the formula detects this as a "draw" and awards a point. how to prevent the formula operating until a result is entered?

Probably a simple method that i have not tried. I have a table where some cells are populated with #N/A. I am trying to work out a formula in another cell saying if the cell that contains #N/A then leave this cell blank.

I am creating a worksheet for my buisness and I have input date of birth and have done a formula to work out ages but I dont know how to hide the formula and leave the cell blank so that when I create new information it automatically puts the age in.

I'm using a formula that I got from a previously made excel sheet. The formula does what I need it to do and looks like this: =INT((D10-10)/2)

The problem is, if I don't enter a number in the cell D10, all the cells with this formula show -5.

If I don't want data entered into D10 yet, I'd like all the cells with that formula to be blank until I actually enter a number in D10.

I think it has to do with using an IF statement followed with ""? Am I on the right track?

Also, if I have other formulas like =SUM(AP3:AQ6), but the cells it refers to are blank, how can I make the cell with the formula also be blank rather than show a 0?

I know I can turn off the "Show a zero in cells that have zero value" option, but I was wondering how to do it with the formula instead.

I am wanting to have certain cells of data from one worksheet appear on another worksheet once the cells on the first sheet have data entered in them.

I find that I can do a simple formula to copy the cell but I want the cell to remain blank until data is added in the first sheet (it will be a mix of text and numerical entries).

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.

On the attached worksheet if the data in col F changes from FLT to AWF,col M will flag up "faw".I would like to leave a blank cell instead of false if the condition is not met. Col P is an example of the result im trying to achieve.

I could really do with is this: =IF(F4>0,F4*3.4%+0.2,"") but I need to be able to make it either 3.4% OR 3.9%. What I thought was if I use another cell, say F3 which I can leave blank or put a 1 in, and tell it if it has a 1 it is 3.9% + 0.20 or if F3 is blank then it is 3.4% + 0.20.

Every AM I run a report that has ALL of our company order numbers from the 2 systems we use. I get those reports and put them into 2 columns. instead of manually inserting so they all match up, is there a way to do this automatically? ....

I have a 'Total' Cell (I23) that has the following Formula: =IF(SUM(D23:H23)>0,SUM(D23:H23),"")

But I would only like the formula to 'work' if another "Total" cell (I57) further down the sheet is Blank.Therefore if Cell I57 has a value, the Cell I23 is left Blank.

I'm want this formula, =IF($C30="Y",$A29+1,""), to leave cell A29 blank if cell C30 doesn't have a "Y" in it. If cell C30 does have a "Y" in it then I want to add one day to cell A29. Cell A30 should return 28-Feb, but in stead it returns 0-Jan.

Workbook has the possiblities of 366 tabs at the bottom, but for a normal calendar year will only have 26.

The tab name is the ending date of the pay period without the year. So for Feb 25, 2007 the tab would be named 0225

On a yearly calculations page I am simply trying to say IF TAB 0225 exists then cell equals '0225'!A2 otherwise the cell should be blank.

I tried this, but gets a reference failure instead of putting nothing...

=IF('0102'!A2=0,"",'0102'!A2)

In this example the possible tab name would be 0102. If the tab exists, everything works fine, but since in this case it doesn't, I get a reference failure. #REF!

I NEED the result to be empty if the tab doesn't exist.

Any idea would be helpful. I'd rather not have 366 tabs when only 26 are needed for any calendar year.

I'm trying to set up my formula so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

(I recommend skipping the below text and just opening the attached spreadsheet, instructions/what I'm looking for and trying to achieve and well laid out requirements and examples are in the spreadsheet and much more thoroughly explained then I can do below)

I'm setting up a table that grabs data from columns in a raw data spreadsheet.

For the purpose of the table I'm making, the formula needs to match up both the House, and the year/month from the raw data sheet, then if the two match and are side by side, return the value to the right either in the Plan Field or the actuals field depending on which field in the table the formula is in. If there is no entry or matching criteria for both the house and Month then it should leave the cell blank, not show a 0

So I have a SUMIFS formula that I'm trying to set up so that if there is no criteria match it leaves the cell blank.

So =SUMIFS(sum range, criteria& range, criteria&range), if no matching criteria can be found, leave cell blank, else if matching criteria found then return value from the sumrange.

Yeah kind of hard to follow, so attached is a very detailed and well laid out spreadsheet showing the example of what the formula is, how it's working/what it's returning and an example of what i want it to return/look like, so please check out the spreadsheet, it explains it a million times better.

Essentially though i want the formula set up so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

I have made a table which contains 2 date columns, Both formatted as date (dd-mmm-yy), the second column is calculated as the first column, + 30, The dates work out fine when adding to a date in the first columns, but from a blank cell it displays 30-Jan-00.

e.g Started Finishes

12-Nov-13 12-Dec-13

30-Jan-00

09-Nov-13 09-Dec-13

11-Nov-13 11-Dec-13

Rather than delete the rows with the blanks in the Started column, is there a formula that I can use so that the cells in the "Finishes" column is left blank when the "Started" cells are blank?

The current formula for cells in the "Finished" column is:

Its probably very simple question, but i can not work it out.

I am trying to design a simple worksheet so I can keep track of how much money my room mate has paid me and what she owes. She pays $142 a week rent plus $23 a month for internet.

Please open the attached workbook. You can see in E7 and 8 there is a red negative number. This is because my tenant hasn't paid me yet for those weeks (D7 & 8).

How can i get these cells to read $0 or leave the cell empty?

The reason why I need this to read $0 or nothing is because it is messing up my next calculation in D3 where it works out how much she has paid for our internet bill.

Thanking you in advance. And sorry if this is a really daft question. Its probably something really simple i have missed.

I am making a spreadsheet for use by my customers. Is there a way to leave cells that have formulas' in blank until the cells that make up the formula have entries in?

I would like to use the IF function so when cell B2 is empty, cell C2 will stay empty. the formula =MONTH(B2&C2) need to be used when cell B2 is not empty. this to convert text to number in column C

The worksheet (Payments) contains a list that allows the user to input accounting transactions. Almost every input cell contains a formula or data validation enabling selection from a dropdown.

The worksheet feeds the data to 3 separate spreadsheets (Debits / Credits / VAT) and the formulas for that are contained within dynamic ranges in the other 3 sheets. A command button macro then feeds that data from the 3 sheets to the Master sheet. This all works perfectly.

After the macro is run and the data is copied to the Master sheet, I would like all of the data in the 4 other sheets to be cleared without losing the formulas and data validation, ie so that the sheets are empty and clear for the next batch of inputs.

I have cells B5:AL22 I want to put 1, 0, or leave blank. I need the zero (0) to turn red with white letter, the 1 and blank cells to remain in the present format. I can get the 1 and zero (0), but I don't know how to get the blank cells to stay in regular format.

i have a mock up football issue here i want to enter scores in sheet 1 and they automatically fill sheet 2 etc i know i can just =and copy sheet 1 A5 and so so but that leaves zeros which will start allmy formulas with 1 point i need a formula that will leave sheet 2 3 etc blank untill any score is entered
