Hi, I desperately need help with a pivot-table and can't find anyone else who's ever had this problem...I have a very large healthcare data table which for simplicity I will describe as follows. In essence the first two columns respectively are (A) location and (B) month. Let's say the third column (C) is the number of cases of the disease kidpox treated in each health centre during that month. The fourth column (D) is the total number of cases of everything treated during that month in each clinic. The fifth column (E) is the proportion of cases of this disease over all consultations for each health centre and month, and the formula in E2 is .....

In the adjacent columns we track redemption details of these free tickets. What I want to do is return the oldest expiration date from A only if the ticket has not been used (i.e. B is empty). This will allow me to see the date the upcoming tickets about to expire so we can make sure they are used.

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.

I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

=COUNTBLANK(C6:AD2506)

But I dont want it to count the cells if the entire row, within that cell, i.e. C6:AD6, is blank.

It should only count the blank cells within a row if there has been some data entered on that row..provided it has been entered within the specified range.

Using one spreadsheet with three date columns and two columns counting days.

If there is a value in Resolution date, then Column N is blank

If there is no value in Submit date and Resolution date, then Column N is blank

If there is no value in Resolution date, and there is a value in Submit date, subtract Submit date from todays date to show how many days it has been pending approval

Created on = J4

Submitted on = K4

Resolution Date = L4

Days to Approve = M4 I've got that formula =IF(L4="","",L4-K4)

Days Pending Approval= N4 (cell with formula)

If Resoultion Date L4 has a value, return blank

If Submit on K4 and Resoultion date L4 are blank, return blank

If Resolution date L4 is blank, and Submit on K4 has a value, subtract Todays date from Submit on K4 to show Days Pending Approval

Cell J4______Cell K4______Cell L4__________Cell M4__________Cell N4

Created on___Submit On___Resolution Date___Days to Approve___Days Pending Approval

4/5/13_______blank______Blank____________Blank___________Blank

4/5/13_______4/5/13_____4/7/13___________2_______________Blank

4/5/13_______4/5/13_____Blank____________Blank___________()Today-K4

I have a spreadsheet where cells L4 W4 have headers (no spaces in this range), e.g. Cust1, Cust2, Cust3 etc... etc...

Column C contains product names ....

Each product will have a value under each heading (but not all), e.g. Product A = Cust1:10 Cust2(blank) Cust3:4 Cust4(blank) etc... etc...

What I need is a formula that looks along the row for each product and returns the header name if there is a value. Therefore, in the example above the formula result would be Cust1Cust3 ....

I'm working with an excel worksheet that uses a TFS plug-in to retrieve tree-structured data from a TFS database. Each item has a "Title" depending on it's position in the tree, in some cell between "Title 1" and "Title 9" inclusive.

Currently I display the title in a new column on the same sheet as the TFS data using the formla below. Since custom columns do not automatically get applied to new items in the TFS list after refreshing, I have to click in a cell and apply to all rows everytime I refresh.

On a different sheet I have a pivot table which contains the work item "ID". What I'd like to do is just be able to retrieve the title for each work item in a column on the sheet with the pivot table, using index/match to find the row, and then return the title from the first non-blank title cell.

Current formula on the TFS sheet (note that '@' indicates "this row", and I've replaced the long table name with "TFSData")

Code:

=IFERROR(

INDEX(TFSData[@[Title 1]:[Title 9]],

MATCH(TRUE,

INDEX(TFSData[@[Title 1]:[Title 9]]"",

1,

0),

0)),

"")

I have a data set with the weeks of the year as my column headers and a value of 1 (from a pivot table) in a distinct row value (removed for privacy) showing whether it existed in a given week based on pre defined criteria. What i need to do is ID the first (from the left) non blank cell in each row and then return that cells column header. I then need to do the same for the last (from the left) non blank cell in each row and then return that cells column header. On the attached I've put values in column N and O to show an example of what I need to return using a formula.

In cell M19 (ie cell below the bottom right corner of the range), I need a excel function that returns the nearest (ie physical location) non blank cell value. I have searched the internet for weeks. The closest formula is the following (see below) but it is flawed as it returns zero if there are values in rows below the row of the nearest cell with non blank...and also zero if there is value in a column greater than the column of the nearest cell with non blank.

Closest formula so far:

INDEX(A1:M18,LARGE(IF(ISBLANK(A1:M18),"",ROW(A1:M18)),1)-ROW(A1:M18)+1,LARGE(IF(ISBLANK(A1:M18),"",COLUMN(A1:M18)),1)-COLUMN(A1:M18)+1).

And the function should be relative not absolute as the range can be extended..but the location of the formula remain same relative to the array size. (ie. always at below the right bottom cell).

NOTE: Ignore the special case where two non blank cells are the nearest. That will not happen.

I am using Excel 2010 and I am trying to average the amount of days in a month to a daily average per person in my worksheet.

Total sales per person

A5 = 10 - This is the Grand total per person for column A

A6 =4

A7=6

Daily average per person

C5=2.6 - Average for all persons here

C6=2.0

C7=3.0

The formula I am using is:

=(SUMPRODUCT($A$6:$A$15,C6:C15))/$A5

Which gives me an answer of 2.6 in cell C5 as shown above which is what I am wanting.

Please note that my cell range for my staff goes from 6-15 for both Column A and C where the other cells are blank in both columns.

My question is, If I was to clear all the data in both Columns A6:A15 and C:6:C15, cell C5 would return to a #VALUE. How to I change the formula so that if the cells were Blank, cell C5 would also be blank until I enter data for each person again?

I am using Excel 2010 and basically i am trying to fill a range of cell with a green color if any value was enter in a specific cells. Example: I would like to fill range: A10:c13 with a green color (regardless of the cells content in this range) if a value was entered in cell C10 or C11 or C12 or C13.

I've tried conditional formatting but unfortunately I'll have to apply formatting for every cell and for a range of over hundred cells is not efficient.

I have data in some of the cells within range A26:A39

These cells are populated via an IF function on another worksheet. Even though the cells appear blank (as in the value returned is ""), there is a formula in these cells. I think it's called formula blank?

I am looking for a way to copy the data from the cells within the range which are not blank (ie: not = "") and paste this data elsewhere on the sheet in a list with no blank spaces in between.

I anticipate that there will be 4 non blank cells within this range.

Ideally I would have data from the nonblank cells copied and pasted to cells

A41

A42

A43

I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.

I would like to use a excel formula to resolve this problem.

Column C is the anwser I pretend.

In the same cell it will return the name of the correct range.

Is there a VBA macro that can be written that will look in a range of cells in a coloum, look to see if its blank and then copy the value from the cell right above it into it?

I have a file with four columns of data that represent quarterly figures. I would like to hide the entire row if all four quarters are blank. The cells I need to check are P, Q, R & S and the data begins with row 21. I know how to get the last row in the range.

View 5 Replies View RelatedI have a spreadsheet where I want to filter out a row if the entire row has zeros across all the columns. I cannot just use a Sum() formula because some of the numbers are negative and there is a chance it could zero the sum out.

Currently to do this I am using the following to tell if there are values in each of my rows:

Code:

ABS(K3)+ABS(T3)+ABS(U3)+ABS(V3)+ABS(W3)+ABS(Z3)+ABS(AC3)+ABS(AF3)

Is there any way to write a formula where I don't have to keep adding to the formula when I add another column?

This formula counts how many dates in the range match the month in cell (Q3). How do I get this formula to to not count empty cells. I keep getting $VALUE! as my answer when I include all the cells in the range.

This is the formula:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(P20:P976-DAY(P20:P976)+1=DATE(YEAR(Q3),MONTH(Q3),1)))

This is the formula in the cells of the range that is being used above:

=IF(D26="","",IF(F26"",F26,IF(I26"",I26,IF($Q$3"",$Q$3))))

I needed this formula to leave the cell blank if all the data cells were blank that's why I have =IF(D26="","", at the begining.

I seem to be 'search challenged' today - I'm sure this is easy. How does one count the number of non-blank cells in a range using VBA?

View 7 Replies View RelatedI have a set of integers in the ranges of: B11 to B40, C11 to C40, D11 to D40.

Occasionally the values in the cells are deleted and thus left as a "blank" cell.

I am trying to copy the contents of all non-blank cells starting at A9 to R1 of another sheet " Record Form Games 3583). If A9 is empty it will skip a row and repeat until row 43. Each of the cells A9:A43 must also be able to act as a reference point for Offsetting and selecting a series of ranges in the same row.

I'm feeling pretty inadequate at the moment ... I'm trying to determine something that (I think) would be relatively simple ... How do I determine if a single column , for example, (B:B) is blank (or null)? Alternatively, how do I determine if a range of cells in a column or columns, for example, (B1:B30) or (B1:D30) is blank (or null)?

View 2 Replies View RelatedI have X amount of cells (formulasheet) , these are used to input data, which is then summarized into a sheet on the same file. I'm trying to find a code that forces the user to fill out all the fields. If the user do not, the "submit button" will not proceed, at least not work. Almost like a forum registrating, where it is required to fill it all some mandatory fields in order to proceed.

The cells datatypes are mixed, some are Integer and some are String.

Is there anyway that are code can be written "if the cell(s) is FALSE (nothing in the cell) then display message.

I have a spreadsheet which always contains data beginning in column A and through row H. However, there may be blank cell(s) in columns B through G. Therefore, if I use

I am creating a tracking spreadsheet where i can toggle between months (attached). It returns data properly when I select January or February from the yellow highlighted dropdown list. However, when i choose March, it returns 1/0/1900 because no data has been entered for March (table array) on the AAAG tab. How do I write the formula to return a blank cell on the summary sheet when no information has been entered into the table array yet?
