I am using a “borrowed” formula from a coworker that I do not really understand however it is working for me, sort of.

=+IF(ISERROR(FIND("F",UPPER(CONCATENATE($V17,$W17,$X17,$Y17,$Z17,$AB17,$AC17,$AD17,$AO17,$AZ17)))),I F(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER($R$2),"NA",""),"FAIL",""),"PASS",""),4)="FFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFF","FAIL","PASS"),"FAIL *")

What this does is read the range of cells and immediately fails a quality check if it is in a critical cell, or fails if multiple non critical items fail.

I want to use an if/then to make cell blank if there is no data in one particular cell (which means no quality inspection performed). Here is what I tried:

IF(V18="","",+IF(ISERROR(FIND("F",UPPER(CONCATENATE($V18,$W18,$X18,$Y18,$Z18,$AB18,$AC18,$AD18,$AO18 ,$AZ18)))),IF(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER($R$2),"NA",""),"FAIL",""),"PASS",""),4)="F FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF","FAIL","PASS"),"FAIL *"))

The leaving the cell blank part of the formula works however it allows the remainder of the formula to only work if “fail” appears in the first cell it reads (in this case V18). If the “fail” appears in any of the other critical cells, it does not work at all.

Also as a side project not sure what the substituting to $R$2 does so if anyone knows how to clean this up, let me know.

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?")

I have 2 worksheets, i have one sheet that has a form with lists, when nothing is selected the cells are blank. On the other sheet I have a few cells which = some of the sheets on the other worksheet. when nothing is selected, the cell displays 0 even though the cell its supposed to be displaying is blank.

View 9 Replies View RelatedAny way of shortening the attached code. The first part 'Sub Loop1()' works great but I can't figure out how to shorten the second part. As you can see the distance between columns is always consistent i.e. add 5 columns to find the next outcome to work out the next result. Ideally I wanted to somehow loop through the next 5 columns again and again until the cell is blank.

First, I can get the balance formula, and when I drag the square at the bottom right, I am able to drag the entire formula down...I want to do that. However, when I drag it down, the number keeps popping up. I was wondering if there is a way to be able to drag the entire thing down and be able to make it so that it is hidden (the cell is blank) unless the debit or credit cell in the corresponding row is filled. Also, if possible, I want to be able to drag it down to infinity, so it can go on forever, so that there is no need to always drag it down when I add more things in it. I am attaching what I have till now.

I have a large spreadsheet with text, numbers and blank cells. Is there a code a can use to make all blank cell have a dash (-) without affecting the other cell with data.

I am calculating blood sugars for my daughter and putting them in a spreadsheet. The formula is simple:

Blood sugar - target blood sugar / 20 which yields the amount of insulin that she needs to take. I want this cell to be blank unless I enter a value in the cell above it.

Next, I take the value from that formula and add it to the amount of insulin that she takes for eating.

The value in the top formula can be 0 or less, but, if the value in the bottom one is less than 0, I want the cell to be blank.

Does anyone know how to use a macro to make a cell background blank if it is not orange or dark blue?

View 8 Replies View RelatedI 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 am looking for an IF statement that would leave a balance cell blank if both the revenue and expense cells are blank, otherwise a formula would be calculated.

View 8 Replies View RelatedI presume this is fairly simple to do, since it's certainly easy enough to do manually by filling in a couple of rows and dragging them down, but I need it to be performed in a macro that I can run before other macros run.

What I need specifically is for the macro to go to G1 and insert the number .01... Then go to G2 and insert .02... Then G3 and insert .03... And repeat this until it finds the first non-blank cell ( row number this occurs at varies), at which point it ends and does nothing to that populated cell or any other cell in the column thereafter (including other blanks farther down).

This all needs to be done in Arial, 10pt, white.

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.

The formula below calculates appropriately, however, if any of the cells (E12,E14, E21, E22, E28, E29) are blank, it returns a #VALUE! error. I would like the cell to remain blank. How can I do this? The formula is listed below.

=(SUM(E34-E6)-(SUM((E12)+E14)-(SUM((E21)+E22)-(SUM(E28)+E29))))

Im currently writing a payroll sheet within excell and trying to write an IF statement to make a cell blank if referring to another blank cell but it is showing the formula is incorrect. Below is the following IF statement that im using;

=IF( F4 <97, AM4*0.8, IF( F4 >=97, AM4*1.1, IF( F4=" ";" "; AM4)))

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".

However, I wish to have the column's cells return an answer of blank (" ") if B15, B16... etc is 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

I'm using this formula

=IF(AND($C$54="C",C3="C"),"C1",IF(C3=$C$54,1,0))

Where C3 compares with C54, I want to have a blank cell if C3 is blank.
