# Ignore Blank Cells Zeros And Error Cells From MIN Function?

Oct 24, 2013

I have a spreadsheet for which I have to set up a formula to get the minimum value from a range of cells, but that range can include blank cells, errors (#DIV/0) and zeros, all of which I want to be ignored. I can work out how to ignore EITHER the zeros

(=MIN(IF(C10:G100,C10:G10)),

or the error cells

(=MIN(IF(ISNUMBER(C9:G9),C9:G9)),

How to exclude both. If I try to combine both of these exclusion criteria it doesn't work and I end up with the answer #DIV/0, which is one of the values I want it to ignore.

## Using SUMIF Function To Ignore Error Cells

Feb 27, 2006

I need to get a subtotal of a range (eg: A1:A30), however some cells in this range have #N/A errors due to particular formulas they contain. I could go into these cells and add a formula which 'catches' these errors, but there are far too many given my current time constraints.

Is there any way to use SUMIF to add the cells which do not contain errors and skip the ones that do? (ie: SUMIF(\$A\$1:\$A\$30,""&"Error Parameter")).

## Ignore Blank Cells And Truly Blank Cells In Named Range?

Jan 13, 2014

Ok so my named range looks like this:

[Code]....

However, I want to ignore the "" cells and the truly blank cells... However, I think all of them will have "" since I have this formula in all of the ones I'm putting in the range:

[Code]....

How do I go about getting these results into a named range so I can use it on validation since validation only seems to ignore truly blank cells and not the "" ones.

## Count Number Of Cells In Column Per Month Ignore Blank Cells?

Jan 13, 2014

I have this formula which is counting the number of cells in a column that fall within each calender month.

However, if there is a formula at the bottom of column B and C that yield a "", the formula breaks.

In my workbook, B/C:133 have a formula =""

I will need the formula in column E to work if there is a formula that yields a "" in column B and C.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells

Mar 1, 2014

I have a row of cells, say, A1 to G1. I wish to sum the values in cells, say, A1, C1, F1 and G1 only. The chosen cells can have values 0, >0 or Blank. How do I sum the values and ignore the blank cell(s) without getting #VALUE!? Filling the blank cells with "0" is not an option.

(Any blank cells may have a value added at a later date).

Edit: I could use multiple 'IF' statements, but this is cumbersome. There must be a simpler way.

## Ignore Blank Cells But Keep The 0?

May 27, 2014

I am working on 2 tabs in a workbook.

The first tab has raw data - The second is my summary.
TAB1 -includes
column A = name range column B = Evaluation Result 1 %
column C = Evaluation Result 2 %
column D = Evaluation Result 3 %
column E = Evaluation Result 4 %
TAB 2 on...The remainder of the tabs are summary for each name in column A of Tab1.
each summary tab includes
A3 = name
A7 = Evaluation Results 1
A8 = Evaluation Results 2
A9 = Evaluation Results 3
A10 = Evaluation Results 4

The evaluation results can include any % from 0-100 and can also be blank. I need to count the 0 but ignore the blanks so for example on Evaluation Result 1, Im using

=SUMIF(Tab1!\$A:\$A,Tab2!\$A\$3,Tab1!\$B:\$B)

So I can find the name in the list of names and the % score for the evaluation - however I don't know how to ignore the blank cells. If the cells are blank I would like to see "-". if they are 0% I would like to see the 0%.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells With Formula

Nov 10, 2011

In cell C1 I hace A1-B1 and in cell DI want to display the status of the cell C1 like this : =IF(C10 ; "NOT OK" ; "OK") This means that when the value of the cell C1 is different then 0 cell D1 will display "NOT OK" and if the value of cell c1 is 0 then D1 will display "OK".

The PROBLEM: Because the cell C1 contains a formula (A1-B1) the D1 cell will display "NOT OK" even if the cell C1 doesn't show any number.

## Ignore Blank Cells In Conditional Formatting?

Feb 15, 2010

I have tried to set up a list of cells to highlight in red any numerical values which are greater than 0 using conditional formatting. This works fine, except that all blank cells are also highlighted in red. Formula is currently: cell value is greater than 0. What do I need to do to ignore the empty cells?

## Conditional Format: Ignore Blank Cells

Feb 5, 2007

Excel 2004 for Mac

I'd like to give a conditional format to a range of cells so that only one cell in the range has a gray background. The condition must include three criteria:
1) The cell cannot be blank, AND
2) The cell's value must be the minimum in the range, AND
3) The cell's value must not equal any value preceding it in the range.

My own attempt looks like this for cell J8 in the range C8:AF8:
=AND(NOT(ISBLANK(J8)),J8=MIN(\$C8:\$AF8),J8\$C8:I8)

Problem: This condition works great for all values entered EXCEPT ZERO. When J8 is the first zero in the range, if it is preceded by a blank cell anywhere else in the range, it fails the third criterion (J8\$C8:I8) because Excel treats the blank cell as though it's a zero. Result: no gray background.

How can I get Excel to "ignore" blank cells.

## SUM Formula: Ignore Error #n/A Cells

## Transfer Results Of IF Statement To Another Tab And Ignore Blank Cells?

Apr 15, 2014

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".

## Chart Omitting Blank Cells & Zeros

Feb 21, 2008

Here is a question about the chart in excel. I have a sort of data where only part of the data is in numbers, and when drawing the chart, the whole range of data were selected. Then on the chart, there is a line drop to the x- array, anyone knows how to get rid of it? It is a line chart. Here's an example if i did not clearly describe the problem

Here's data
X Y
4354.28
5354.75
6352
7343.82
8aa
9aa
10aa
11aa
12aa

and between 7 and 8 on x, the line will drop from 343.82 to 0, and i don't want this part, i want the chart to show to 7 and leave the 8 to 12 blank..

## Adjust Dynamic Range To Ignore Formulas In Blank Cells?

May 19, 2014

Attached is a spreadsheet I am working on that has a series of graphs with defined dynamic ranges. I am having 2 separate issues on 2 different tabs.

1) Ranges named AirRecBra4 (and Bra10); AirComBra4 (and Bra10); AirRemBra4 (and Bra10) are not pulling in data from the correct data points. Instead of using the last 26 data point, they are currently beginning at the top of the column (currently cells 11 to 36 is their respective columns). The formulas are copy and pasted from working offset ranges in the same tab but are reading differently.

2) On the last 6 tabs beginning with Stn Backlog, I want to have defined formulas beginning in cell B119 and continuing downward to at least F200. However, when I add the formulas, the offset reads the formulas as being data and adjusts for that. I do not know how to adjust the dynamic range to ignore formulas in blank cells.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells In Formula Counting Days Between Two Dates

Jul 22, 2014

I have the following formula which counts number of days between dates in two adjacent cells excluding holidays

=NETWORKDAYS(U311,V311,\$AA\$4:\$AA\$14)-1

The \$AA\$4:\$AA\$14 refers tote range where the excluded holiday dates are stored.

I have included the -1 at the end as it over counts by one day every time. i.e. if the same date is in both cells it counts 1

However if no date is in both fields it count -1 (minus one)

If a date is just in one field it counts a very high number, example below.

-1

16/07/2014

-29879

20/06/2014
08/07/2014
12

[code].....

is there a better formula to use for this? How do I get the result to show ZERO when both cells are empty? can I get the result to show number of days to present date where there is only a date in first column?

## Formula To Ignore Blank Cells And Copy Data That Meets Criteria?

Apr 27, 2014

I have a worksheet (Data) that lists when pupils are in for Nursery sessions during the week. If they are in they have a 3 (hours) by their name in the relevant columns.

In the AM worksheet I now need to pull through a "register" so under each daily heading I need to pull through everyone that has a 3 next to their name under Monday AM / Tuesday AM / Wednesday AM etc. from the Data sheet. However, I don't want it to copy any blank cells. I then need to do the same for the PM sheet.

## Referenced Cells Returning Zeros: Can These Be Made Blank Or String Data?

Aug 30, 2007

I have a summary worksheet consisting of columns that are referenced to other sheets within the same workbook.

If the cell in the 'referring' (original) sheet is blank then the forumula returns a zero instead of a blank in my summary worksheet, which is messing up some other calculations.

Is there a way to make these cells truly blank, or possibly into string variables instead, so that they do not interfere with my calculations?

## Change Empty Cells To Blank Cells (need To Use Skip Blanks Function)

Mar 8, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where a column has many cells being empty and others with values. I need to use copy-paste skip blanks to another column so it only overwrites cells that contains values. BUT The cells in the column appears to be empty, not blank, when I try use the copy-paste skip blanks it doesnt work. However, when I press delete in every empty cell the copy-paste skip blanks works for those cells.

Do you got a fast method to make all the empty cells blank?

## Value Not Available Error - Counting Blank Cells

Feb 24, 2009

I'm trying to to create a formula where if two different cells have no value (K10 & O10) a third cell will also be blank (N10)

I have the following formula which follows these steps when i evaluate it.

=VLOOKUP(K10&O10,\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "&O10,\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "&" ",\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

#N/A

How can i deliver a blank cell as the answer?

## Prevent #DIV/0 Error In Average When All Cells Are Blank/Empty

May 19, 2008

I'm looking for a function that will display the average of a row of cells, while at the same time not displaying any error messages. It's easy to average cells without blank values, but to combine that with no errors is difficult for me. I saw many ways to do the average, one of which is:

= SUM(A1:E1)/COUNTIF(A1:E1,">0")

That function doesn't work for a row of blank cells (i.e., hidden rows), though. The result is an error message.

I also read about a way to ignore an error in a computation:

=IF(ISERROR(F1),"",F1)

The problem is when I combine those functions I get a blank cell no matter which function I put first, and without regards to cell values or not. The reason I want this to be error-free is that I have to average the "average column" at the bottom of the table, too (i.e., F100).
