Hi, I desperately need help with a pivot-table and can't find anyone else who's ever had this problem...I have a very large healthcare data table which for simplicity I will describe as follows.

But for some reason, when I copy and paste the resulting range of values elsewhere (to rid myself of the formula that determined them), the cells that did not return a value (where the statement is FALSE), are not recognized by a "Go To Special > Blanks" request, until I select all of the "empty cells" and clear them manually.

## Not Plot Empty/Blank Cell In Chart

Aug 21, 2006

For Excel 2000:

In worksheet A, there is a column of numbers that can be 0 or not zero.

In worksheet B, there is a column of cells that determines if a corresponding cell in worksheet A is zero or not.

'As an example, for cell 'B!C6
=If( 'A!B52=0,"",'A!B52)

The column in worksheet B is used in a chart.

The chart settings are:
Tools | Options | Chart | Active Chart- Plot empty cells as: Not plotted

The chart is not treating "" as EMPTY, and therefore is not presenting correctly.

How would I set the value of cell 'B!C6 to EMPTY (or null, or blank, or whatever Excel calls it) using an IF statement, such that 'B!C6 would evaluate to EMPTY, and be ignored by the chart?

Would this be any different in Excel 2003?

## Count/Average Number Of Specified Name Where Corresponding Cell Is Not Blank/Empty

May 1, 2008

sumif problem but it wont work with a countif or average if.

Column A has various names and Column B has amounts, what I need is to count the number of occurances "John Smith" has an amount in Column B. The previous formula I tried was

=sumif(A:A,"John Smith",B:B) but with either countif or averageif it errors too many arguements.

I wasn't sure if Dcount or an array would be suitable but have not used them before.

Pivot tables I'm sure will be the future with this but haven't got to the foot of that mountain yet.

## Convert Blank Formula Cell To Empty Cell?

Feb 26, 2008

I am using a IF(ISNA(Vlookup##,##,##)),"",(Vlookup##,##,##)) function, in order to remove N/A errors.

Is there anyway to convert the "" values to back to an empty cell without anything in it (i.e not text "", but empty as it was originally). I find that the file sizes are very large, when using this function, as data (although blank) is stored in each cell (i know this, because if I use cntr+arrow, it sees it as data, and not an empty area). I don't want to manually go through each cell and delete them as there is quite a bit of data (10000 rows , 2 columns, 30 tabs)
