Ignoring Blank Cells/zero Calculated Values In Drop Down List

Oct 2, 2007

i have a list which is populated with data from another sheet.. if there is no data in the corresponding cell on the other sheet then the cell is blank.. i've tried using:

=OFFSET($Z$2,0,0,MATCH(REPT("z",255),$Z:$Z))

but it doesn't see the blank cells as blank i.e. no data in them as they contain formula's.. (even although there are no values populated) - can anyone offer any help in relation to this???

Ignoring Blank Value In A Drop Down List

Jul 25, 2006

I have a dynamic drop down validation List, which comes from another
spreadsheet list and have a few random blank cells in it. I need to
drop these blank values from the List without making any change in the
parent list. I may also have some duplicate values in the List and need
to drop them too.

Drop Down List With Blank Cells Throughout Range.

Jan 21, 2010

I've used this site for help many times, but this was the first time I couldn't find the answer to my question through searching. I've looked all over this site & elsewhere, tried 2 dozen different solutions, and nothing seems to work.

I've used a budgeting spreadsheet for years, which lets me plan bills weekly according to paychecks. For each month, going down the "Expenses" column, there lists are seperated by when they'll occur. So there may be three blank cells, then electric bill, mortgage, blank, blank, cable bill, blank, cell phone, blank, gasoline.

On the checkbook worksheet, I want to enter a drop down box for the Expenses. The problem is, every solution I've found for doing this is aimed at eliminating blank spaces at the end of the list. This by necessity has to have blank spaces throughout the list, but I would like them to disappear in the drop down menu.

Drop Down List Which Returns Values Based On What Has Been Selected In The Previous Drop Down List In The Adjacent Cell

Mar 19, 2009

I'm trying to create a drop down list which returns values based on what has been selected in the previous drop down list in the adjacent cell, e.g. if 'Apples' is selected in the previous cell then you should only be able to select from 'Gala, Granny Smith', or if 'Oranges' is selected you should only be able to select 'Seville, Blood Orange'. Is there a formula which would do this, or can I use a pivot table somehow? I'm totally stumped.

Drop Down List Which Displays A Different Set Of Values Depending Upon The Value Selected By A Previous Drop Down List

Oct 26, 2009

I need to have a drop down list which displays a different set of values depending upon the value selected by a previous drop down list. ie. (drop down box 1)= x, y, z. (drop down box 2)= either x1, x2, x3, or y1, y2, y3, or z1, z2, z3. I can produce a single drop down box thats not a problem but linking several drop down boxes is beyond me .

Ignoring Blank Cells In IF Statement

Aug 10, 2009

I'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?

Ignoring Blank Cells In Formula

Feb 5, 2010

I am trying to return the criteria MET, NOT MET & EXCEEDS. This works when each cell contains a number, but when one is blank the formula below returns "EXCEEDS" I'm guessing this is because is sees a blank as zero.

=IF(BN102<$BJ102,"NOT MET",IF(BN102>$BJ102,"EXCEEDS",IF(BN102=$BJ102,"MET")))

I've tried using this alternative but it still returns the same.

=IF(BO102<$BJ102,"NOT MET",IF(BO102>$BJ102,"EXCEEDS",IF(BO102=$BJ102,"MET",IF(ISBLANK(B102)," ",""))))

Basically I need to know how to make excel ignore the blank cell and not see it as zero thus returning "EXCEEDS". Although the cell values are integers they are derived from another cell using the following formula, I'm not sure if this makes any difference

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(BO11,$BH$63:$BI$87,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(BO11,$BH$63:$BI$87,2,FALSE)))

Excel 2003 :: Conditional Format Top / Mid / Bottom 33% Of Cells But Ignoring Blank Cells

Mar 25, 2012

I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....

Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003)
Top 34%:
=IF(INT(COUNT($D$3:$D$38)*34%)>0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D
$38)*34%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D
$38)*67%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D
$38)*100%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))

Counting Some Blank Cells And Ignoring Others In A Range.

Sep 5, 2009

Using formula rather than VB, I would like to calculate the number of blank cells that appear in a column BEFORE the first active cell but exclude any blank cells that appear after the first active cell. To elaborate, I have sheets that contain the days of each month and I need to exclude for other calculation purposes, the number of days (cells) where no entry of data has been input at the beginning of a month, NOT after the first data entry. ie. September has 30 days.

The first data entry is the 10th and there are no entries (thus far) after the 10th, the result that I seek, will be 20 (although only one cell has data), being the days left in the month AFTER the first entry. I have looked at COUNT functions but cannot find an solution. Perhaps it's not possible using basic formula?

Average Of VLookups Ignoring Blank Cells

Oct 24, 2011

I am trying to get a rolling 8wk avg of a large group of data. I am trying to take the avg of 8 vlookups:

=AVERAGE(VLOOKUP($A$9,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-7,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-14,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-21,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-28,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-35,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-42,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-49,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE))

However, in some cases, the cell to be looked-up may be blank. Using the formula above, the result of these vlookups is "0". I want to take the average of these vlookups excluding the blanks from the 'Raw Data' sheet.

LOOKUP Question Ignoring Blank Cells

Sep 30, 2009

I am trying to add up wins and loses for individuals on a team. 6 players
There are 3 games per match and one match a week for 15 weeks. One sheet per week.
The players are inputted randomly each week. And the scores are entered after the match.

The following is a part of the formula that I am using but it returns a #NA because the cells in the weeks not played yet are blank, players and scores. Is there a better way to do this or a way I can ignore the blank cells until they are entered. Thanks in advance.

=SUM(LOOKUP($A$17,'Week 1'!$C$20:$D$23,'Week 1'!$E$20:$E$23),LOOKUP($A$17,'Week 2'!$C$20:$D$23,'Week 2'!$E$20:$E$23),etc.)

A17 is the players name, 1st range is where the players name would be entered, 2nd range is where the score is entered.

Ignoring Blank Cells/commonly Occuring Text

Feb 14, 2007

1. First thing I am trying to do. I have a column of cells that have multiple values, some with text and some with no values at all. I want to be able to display in A1 the most commonly occurring text in cells C1:C15, and be able to display in B1 the number of times that A1 occurs in the same range. Below are the formulas that I am using. There are two problems that I am running into: First, the formula returns a #NA error if any of the cells in the range are left blank. Second, the formula counts the spaces or zeros, so if there are more blanks than the word amber then A1 returns and B1 returns the corresponding number.

A1
=INDEX(C1:C15,(MODE(MATCH(C1:C15,C1:C15,0))))

B1
=COUNTIF(C1:C16,A1)

2. Second thing I am trying to do. In A2 I want to display the second most commonly occurring text in the range, with its corresponding count in cell B2, and the third most in A3 and B3, etc

Illustration:

C1 Amber
C2 Red
C3
C4
C5
C6 Red

Desired result:

A1 "Red" B1 "2"
A2 "Amber" B2 "1"

Results with forumla as posted

A1 " " B1 "3"

I want to show in tab total view the advices for problems which come from a questionnaire. This questionnaire applies to its advices on the basis of given questions of the user. In the advice tab you can see the advice given for each question.

In column C indicated by 1 if the text should be to the overview tab and a 0 if the specified text should not be taken to the tab overview. How can I get in the overview tab only the text from column B which have in column C the value 1 (without the empty cels)? Even when the data in tab advice changes i want that the information in the tab overview also changes.

I don't know if this is best in a formula or macro but what I am trying to do is create a list of data with no empty cells from a list of data with empty cells.

What I want to say is if A1 is blank move to A2, if it's not return the value in A1 to B1. If A1 and A2 are blank then return the value in A3 to B1 and so on. Generally it's a sort function but I want it to happen automatcially and lkeep all my values in the original order

Original Version:

Date 1/4 Value 1/4
23/02/199913.506

5/05/199911.901

Select Current Region Ignoring Cells In Dropdown List?

Feb 17, 2014

I have a sheet with a data in range A1:J9. I have a drop down list in each cell from A2:A100.

I'm trying to store all values in A1:J9 in an array using the property CurrentRegion.value like below

Code:
Arr=Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Value
The issue is that is taking as current region the range A1:J100, even if I don't have selected any value in the drop down list from A10:A100.

Is there a way to force CurrentRegion to select only values from A1:J9 ignoring the blanks dropdown list values or a similar way to load an array with values in a contiguous range?

Ignoring Specific Values While Selecting Multiple Cells

Dec 20, 2012

I have to correct a spreadsheet that takes a bunch of values and creates an average.

=average(N15;N29;N43;N57;N71;N85;N99;N113;N127;N141;N155;N169;N183;
N197;N211;N225;N241;N255;N269;N283;N301;N315;N329;N343;N357)*100%

I didn't create this. Anyway, the problem is that most of these cells will be empty unless a whole bunch of other stuff is filled. These N cells take several values, put them together and create a new one. As time goes by they are filled. While they aren't filled, they'll return the DIV/0 error.

So when that formula I pasted there uses all of these values, it also returns a DIV/0 error because it is getting info from cells that have this error.

I managed to correct that with this
=averageif(N15:N357;"<>#DIV/0!")*100%

It works like a charm save for one problem. When I use averageif I'm forced to use an interval. Along this interval other values show up (it is always a value ranging from 0 to 2). So when the formula works its magic the results are slightly skewed because of this other value that I don't want.

So I figure there must be two ways around this. The first one would be using something like averageif that lets me use several handpicked cells instead of an interval. If I try

=averageif(N15;N29;N43;N57;N71;N85;N99;N113;N127;N141;N155;N169;N183;
N197;N211;N225;N241;N255;N269;N283;N301;N315;N329;N343;N357;"<>#DIV/0!")*100%

It doesn't work, it says I have too many values. So if I could the exact same thing as I did with averageif but keeping all of these values it'd be super nice.

The other solution, less nice but equally effective I guess, is using this same interval but having more than one criteria. The first criteria would still be the one telling it to ignore DIV/0 error, the second criteria would be the one to ignore any values equal or lower than 2.

Pre-determined Values In Drop-down List

I have tried doing this with the data validation tool, but the problem I have run into is that I do not want to store the items in the drop-down list (call or put) anywhere in the excel sheet.

How To Return Corresponding Values Based On Drop-down List

Jun 3, 2014

I have created a drop down list of various material sizes what I am needing to do is to select a material size from the drop down list and a corresponding value is input into the cell. So on say sheet two (Data Sheet) I have Cell A1 25x25 with Cell B1 100, Cell A2 30x30 with Cell B2 120 and so on. On sheet 1 Cell A1 has my drop down list being the material size ie 25x25, so what I need to happen is if I select 25x25 then Cell B1 is 100 or if I select 30x30 then cell B1 is 120.

How To Look Up Based On Two Values Generated From Drop Down List

Ok what I am trying to do is lookup a value in a table (kinda like one below but alot bigger). What I plan on doing is creating a drop down list for the rows that show "A, B, C etc) and then another drop down for (AA, BB, CC etc).

So lets say the 2 drop-down list are set to C and BB
I want to be able to fill another cell with the value -134

I would use If statements but like I said the table would be alot bigger than example. If possible I would rather not use VBA due to work security settings.

a b c
AA-110-110-129
BB-115-115-134
CC-117-133-136

List - Filling In Each Blank Cells With Value Contained In First Non-blank Cell Above It

Feb 27, 2013

I have a list that looks something like this:

Column B

Row 4 Item 1
Row 5 Item 2
Row 6
Row 7
Row 8 Item 3
Row 9
Row 10 Item 4
Row 11
Row 12
Row 13
Row 14 Item 5

The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"

I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.
