# Making A Cell Blank Referring To Another Blank Cell?

May 8, 2014

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)))

## Making A Cell Blank

Feb 19, 2007

I have a spreadsheet with about 1000 rows. This is data that I've imported from another source and there are blank rows scattered throughout. I am trying to add columns together, but when I cut and past the sum formula, I end up with a 0 in a cell that should be blank. I've tried various iserror, isblank, isnull, empty functions, but am still getting a 0.

Here my example of one function I've tried:
a b c
1. 50 50 50 =if(isblank(a1:c1)," ",sum(a1:c1)) 150
2. 20 20 20 =if(isblank(a2:c2)," ",sum(a2:c2)) 60
3. =if(isblank(a3:c3)," ",sum(a3:c3)) 0

I would like that zero answer in row 3 to be blank otherwise I have to manually go through all the rows and delete these 0's out or cut and paste the sum function just on the rows with numbers.

## Making Contents Of Cell Blank Upon IF Statement

Feb 10, 2008

I have a conditional IF statement, where I want the content of the cell to be blank if the result of the IF statement is false, ie I want the content of the cell to be as if there were no formula in the cell (this if so that the formula COUNTA(Sheet1!\$B:\$B) only counts the cells where the result is TRUE).

For example, IF(A1=1,1,"") where A1 1, the content of the cell will have something in it (a space), and won't be blank.

## Leaving Blank Cells Blank In Dragging Formula Combining Different Formulas In One Cell?

Aug 2, 2014

I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.

## IF Blank Or If Not Blank Function That Works With Adjacent Cell With Formula In It?

Aug 12, 2014

I 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?)

## IF Statement To Leave Cell Blank If Multiple Cells Are All Blank?

## How To Populate Blank Cells With Sequence Until Non Blank Cell Is Encountered

Mar 22, 2014

I 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.

## 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.

## Replace #VALUE! Error For Blank Cells With Blank Cell

Nov 17, 2008

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))))

## Keep Cell Blank If Referencing Cell Within IF Formula Is Blank

Jul 28, 2014

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".

## Return Blank If Concatenating With Blank Cell?

Apr 3, 2014

in one column of my spreadsheet and it is returning the correct concatenation for the appropriate lines. However, I wish to have the column's cells return an answer of blank (" ") if B15, B16... etc is blank. In other words, at the moment, a correct answer would read something like '1810sd0000' C10 and B15 used, while an incorrect answer would still display '1810', but I want it to be a blank cell.

## Set Date In Table Cell To Be Date In Another Cell Plus 30 But Leave Blank If Other Cell Is Blank

Nov 19, 2013

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

## Formula To Create Blank Cell Based On Dollar Amount In Another Cell?

Jan 7, 2014

Ok, basically C3 is a dollar amount. The default total for C3 is \$0.00. If C3 is \$0.00 then this formula cell will display a blank cell. If there is any other amount in C3 then the formula C3-C2 will run.

I tried this but it's not working:

=IF(C3="0","",C3-C2)

## Copy Cell Data To Other Worksheet Cell - Leave Blank If Not Currently Filled

Jul 8, 2014

I am wanting to have certain cells of data from one worksheet appear on another worksheet once the cells on the first sheet have data entered in them.

I find that I can do a simple formula to copy the cell but I want the cell to remain blank until data is added in the first sheet (it will be a mix of text and numerical entries).

## Find Last Cell In Column And Paste Formula In Next Blank Cell Then Repeat On Remaining Columns

Jan 14, 2013

I need a macro to find the last cell in the column, then copy the formula to the next blank cell. Then, it goes back to the last cell (above) and paste's values. Then, go to the next column and repeat the process. I can do this but have to call each cell separatly...however, I would like to do it in a loop to simplify things. It would be great to even be able to just set the start and ending columns. Here is my current code:

Dim rng As Range, aCell As Range
Set rng = Range("C8, D8, E8, F8, G8, H8, J8, K8, L8, M8, N8, O8, P8, Q8, R8, S8, T8, U8")
For Each aCell In rng
Selection.End(xlDown).Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False

[Code] .......

It does not go to the next column, instead it stays in the same column and repeats the process.

## 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)

## Copy Cell Content Into Next Available Blank Cell In Sheet2?

Nov 26, 2013

I have 2 worksheets, let's call them "Sheet1" and "sheet2".

Sheet 1 has 2 columns (A, and B)

Ie. "Sheet1:"

Col A, Col B

Red
Green Yes
Blue
Yellow
Orange Yes

For each entry in Column "B" that has a "Yes" value, I need to copy the color value in column "A" into the next available empty cell in "Sheet2" in column A.

"Sheet2"

Col A, Col B

Red 3
Blue 5
Yellow 6

Final Result:

Col A, Col B

Red 3
Blue 5
Yellow 6
Green
Orange

how to do this particular challenge? For Sheet2, I think I'll need a function to determine the first available blank cell in column A.

## Formula With Offset From Active Cell And Sum Until Blank Cell

Dec 24, 2013

I have a formula in cel B1 : =SUM(A2:A100) / A1

I would like to use this formula many times in the sheet, so I would need a reference to the cell the formula is in, and have the SUM range until the next empty cell one column to the left.

So I would need something like (literally):

=SUM(Offset activecell (1,-1) : Offset activecell (1, (look for next empty cell -1)) / Offset activecell (0,-1)

## If One Cell Is Blank, How Do I Copy The Cell To The Immdediate Left
