Make Formula Cell Appear Empty Until Data Is Entered

Jun 10, 2006

I'm creating a "universal-fluctuating" vendor inventory return worksheet for a auto parts store that consist of one criteria (cores, warranties, or N/R ) and will return one or two results of core cost and/or unit cost. This part of the task I have accomplished by using a drop down list for my criteria and my results will appear in two different columns using a Vlookup table. The problem is due to inventory fluctuating from cores and waranties on a month by month basis, vendor requiremnts differ for the number of units returned, and last make the boss happy on ink and papers supplies :D I was wondering if it is possible loop my code in a given column where it will move my code to the next row untill I reach a grand total?

Possible To Make Sum Formula Based Off Dates Entered In Different Cell?

Jul 28, 2014

How would you write a formula where the sum depends on what dates you enter in A1 and B1?

Date cells C1 to C365

A1 start date
B1 end date

Example:
A1 = 1/1/14
B1 = 1/31/14

So cells C1 to C31 will be added.

"=sum(c1:offset(c1,(b1-a1),0))

This formula works, except if you enter a different starting dates, it just counts from c1.

Make Formula Cells Empty Rather Than Empty Text

Apr 17, 2008

Is it possible to make a cell "really" blank/empty based on an If statement? For instance:

=if(a1>10,a1,"")

Has a value_if_false of "". But Excel interprets this a bit differently than a cell that never had anything typed into it.

So if you have a column full of this formula copied down, and hit <control+down arrow>, you will go straight to the bottom and skip over all rows. Whereas if you have a column with values and empty cells alternating and hit <control+down arrow>, you will only skip the empty cells and go to the next value. Excel treats the conditionally empty cells as if they have a value, when it comes to this type of navigation. This holds even if you copy and paste "Values" for the cells over the formulas.

Is there any way to tell Excel to make the cells truly empty?

How To Make Sure That Only Positive Numbers Are Entered In A Cell

Jan 13, 2008

I am trying to restrict data input to a cell for only positive numbers. Currently, I have used data validation to accept decimals and numbers greater than zero. The cell is formatted for percentage with 2 decimal places. The "error message" alerts you that you have to have positive numbers only. The catch is that when the error message comes up and you use the 'retry' button, the entry is multiplied by 100.

Make Static Date Appear When Cell Has Text Entered?

Jan 19, 2014

Any way where is a list of cells (b3:b113) has text entered, or specific text entered, it will enter a static cell in the corresponding "d" column.

I know of CTRL + ; but i don't really know how to get it to work as a macro, can't find a forumla that enters the static date, and i don't want to make a macro to copy + paste special the date when it happens.

So all i should have to do is entered text in column b, then it will add a time stamp, when that text was entered, it doesn't have to update.

Like all i need is this, but instead of the "now()" function, it will have another function that doesn't automatically update?

=IF(ISBLANK(E5)=FALSE,NOW(),"")

Make Vlookup Move On From An Empty Cell?

Nov 30, 2008

Hello there,

I am making a spreadsheet that tracks children's progress in school through the year.

I have a vlookup that turns their levels (2c,2b,2a,3c,3b,3a etc) into numbers so that the number of sublevels they have progressed during the year can be reported.

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(E5,$AD$10:$AE$28,2,FALSE)),"0",VLOOKUP(E5,$AD$10:$AE$28,2,FALSE))

However, when children join through the year, they will not have data to go in the 'starting grade' box, so I was wondering if it would be possible to make vlookup see that cell E5 is empty, and so look in cell F5 instead. It might even, perhaps, have to look in cell G5 if they join the class after Christmas.

Macro Copy / Paste Last Data Entered To Last Empty Row Of Different Worksheet

Mar 15, 2013

I am looking to create a macro to be assigned to a button that copies the last row of data entered and then pastes it to the last empty row on a different worksheet. This is a dummy spreadsheet to work with (I have more data, but the concept is one in the same). Sheet1 ("Branch1"), Sheet2 ("Branch2"), and Sheet3 ("All"), the names in brackets are names of the sheets, but for ease I'll refer to them as Sheet1, Sheet2, and Sheet3. I have columns beginning in B as follows: Date, Branch, Currency, Coin, and Total (the branch and Total are tied to formulas, however I just need to the text values and formats to come over to the other worksheet). have the portion regarding the copy of the last row in Sheet1, however it won't PasteSpecial.Selection in Sheet3 as it says the cells are not sized or formatted correctly.

VB:
Sub CopyB2()
lr2 = Sheets("Branch2").Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
lr3 = Sheets("All").Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
Sheets("Branch2").Range("B" & lr2).EntireRow.Copy Sheets("All").Range("B" & lr3)
End Sub

Formula To Make Cell Blank Instead Of Zero

Oct 29, 2009

I am looking for a formula that will work with my current formula, and check that cells a1 and b1 contains information. If they do contain info then the original formula should carry on as usual and leave the answer in cell c1. I also need it so when no information has been entered in cells A1 and B1, C1 will be blank instead of containing a zero.

This is the formula I have at the moment:
=IF(SUM(A1=0,B1>0),B1-A1,"No Charge?")

Make A Cell's Values Become A Formula

May 23, 2008

I have on my Sheet named "Data" in Cell K4

=CONCATENATE(L16,O25,L18,O25,K20,S25,N22)

The values of that cell become a formula.

I try to make a macro that pastes 'Data'!K4 into 'Data'!L3 and then have that formula functioning in cell 'Sheet1'!A31.

The problem is when I try to make a macro to do this it will always paste the values that were recorded during the macro rather than the unique formula that is created via cell 'Data'!K4 at the time.

Is there any way to have A31 actively using the values that are created with 'Data'!K4? at all times?

Skip Empty Cell In Formula?

Jul 1, 2014

I want to make the formula: x=SUM(A * e^(-b*d)), wherein A and b are parameters and d the distance.

I've just over 10.000 rows and 15 columns (B4 to P10013) with distances. For each column i give a formula =$S$2*EXP(-$R$2*B4) and extent that for all colums and rows, then I sum all the columns. This works fine, except for the fact that when there is an empty cell the outcome is wrong. Because I set for example A as 10. The answer for that cell is 10, because he sees an empty cell as 0, i guess.

So how do I skip these empty cells?

Making A Cell With A Formula Appear Empty

Mar 16, 2009

I have a chart with blank values in some cases. I have set up the chart to show those values as gaps, which relies on the blank cell being empty. However, my blank cells have a formula along the lines of: if (condition,value,"")

So the chart does not consider them blank, presumably either because the formula is in there, or because "" is not the same as blank. How can I make this cell appear blank for the purposes of the chart?

Leave Cell Empty Even When There Is A Formula In It

Jan 16, 2010

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.

Find Empty Cell And Add Formula

I have a spreadsheet that is pulled automatically from an access database.
The information that is pulled is invoices that have been paid for each of the temps working for our company.
Each month I have to give a figure per cost code on how much they are accruing so that they can see how much is still outstanding.

Right so what I am trying to do is have a macro take the temps charge rate then * 40 hours and place the amount into the empty cell.
As you will see in the attachement some of the cells are coloured. The purpose of the colouring is show that a invoice has been processed and paid for that week so no value is needed in that cell.

Then total all the cells at the end.

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)

How To Write Sum Formula For A Range In Last Empty Cell In Each Row

Sep 22, 2013

I have a spreadsheet. In this sheet the data is added daily so one column is increased everyday. The rows may also be increased. What I am trying to do is to sum the data in each row for a range of first cell in the row to the last non empty cell in that row and this has to be done for all the rows. So I thought the for loop would be useful for such requirement and I tried to write the following code. But unable to write the sum formula in the last empty cell in a row and I get the value error. The code is as follows.....

Sub sum_on_LastEmptyCell()
'find the last empty row in column A
lrow = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("sheet1").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1
'find the last empty column in a row

[Code] ........

Though one of my friend told that it can be done with "with and end with block but I am not aware of with and end with block.

It would be better if you tell me that how can I put the sum formula in my code. How can I use variables which return the row number and the column number in the sum range within the For loop because I want to put If Else condition for the calculations within the For loop i.e. if certain condition is true then I want this calculation to take place otherwise do something else. Moreover it will be easier for me to understand. Because I can use different formula based on different cells as well. Is there any way to do this?
