# If No Data Leave It Blank (cell Contains Formula)

Mar 31, 2007
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'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.

how to write a formula that will leave a cell blank if nothing is entered. I do not want it to show a 0 unless the cell entered is a 0.

In cell G16 - I am adding U46 and U58 together.

I do not have a problem when it is 1 cell - my formula works fine. When I have 2 cells added together, the formula does not work.

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 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.

When i use

Code:

=IF(ISBLANK(I31);"";I31-IF(ISNUMBER(J31);J31;0))

The cell gives me an error, i think because I31 has a formula that returns no value.

How can i stop the formula if cell I31 gives me no data??

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.

Excel Version: 2000

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.

cell A1 has the time (09:00), cell A2 has the minutes (60), cell A3 is the sum of A1+A2.

Im using this formula =A1+TIME(0,A2,0) - which is fine, except A1 is sometimes blank, so therefore I would like A3 to be blank.

I thought I could use this: =IF(A1,"","",(A1+TIME(0,A2,0)) But it doesn't work.

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.

This is the exact formula I am using:

=SUMIFS(INDEX('Raw Data'!$1:$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!$B9, 'Raw Data'!$1:$1, 0)), INDEX('Raw Data'!$1:$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!$A$8, 'Raw Data'!$1:$1, 0)), Table!$A$9, INDEX('Raw Data'!$1:$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!$B$8, 'Raw Data'!$1:$1, 0)), TEXT(Table!C$8, "yyyymm"))

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:

=[@Started]+30

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.

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 created this formula =G2*2.9%+.3

what I am trying to do is take the number in the G column multiply it by 2.9% and add 0.30. For instance if 20.00 is in the G2 cell, the number I want the formula to produce is .88

the formula works for me but what happens is the rest of my sheet that does not have any numbers in the G column gets filled with .30

How do I prevent the formula from calculating if the G column is blank?

I am trying to create a macro that sorts rows based on value of 2 columns, but every time that a value changes in either of them to leave an empty row between them. Is that possible? In simple words i want to separate my rows with the empty row while sorting them out alphabetically based on two columns.

Please check my screen shots. Test 1 is my spreadsheet before the macro. Test 2 is how i need it to be after the macro. The two columns that i want it sorted out is First GDS then Rate.

I have a spreadsheet that contains given answers to a multiple choice test. I want to count the number of times each possible answer has been chosen at the bottom of the column. I have tried to use COUNTIF and that works fine to give me the number times each answer has been chosen but there is just one annoying thing. If the given answer hasn't been chosed by anyone, a "0" is automatically entered into the cell. This tends to really clutter up the spreadsheet and I would prefer for the cell to be left blank if the answer hasn't been chosen by anyone.

The closest I can come up with is: {=IF(D1:D10="","",COUNTIF(D1:D10,"A"))} but unless the answer "A" is chosed in D1, the cell remains blank.

If "A" is chosed in D1, then the formula works and counts all the rest of the cells that have "A" as an answer.

I need to create a leave tracker wherein i will get the names of the person who want to take leave in that particular month. I have prepared a calendar to make an entry. I need to take care of the following things

1) The person must have sufficient leave balance available to take the leave. so i have to first check if he/she has sufficient leave balance.

2) There are four team leaders and each team has around 13-14 members. so if lots of people from the same team apply for the leave then they will not be eligible for leave. this i want to know in percentage as to how much percentage of people are taking leave from that particular team.

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'm looking to pull into Column B the last name only from the "full name" column (column C).

Right now, in Column B I have the formula =UPPER(MID(C3,FIND(" ",C3)+1,50)) to pull in the last name from the full name that is in column C. The problem is that when column C has a middle initial or a nickname, column B ends up having the middle initial and the last name. For example, if Column C has John "Buster" Jones, I get "Buster" Jones in column B but I only want Jones; or if Column C has Mary T. Smith, I get T. Smith in Column B but I only want SMITH

Is there a better approach so I only get the last name?

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:

Code:

=IF(MONTH(TODAY())>MONTH('Input Page'!B30),YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30), IF(AND(MONTH(TODAY())=MONTH('Input Page'!B30),DAY(TODAY())>=DAY('Input Page'!B30)),

YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30),(YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30))-1))

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".
