# SUMIFS - If No Criteria Match Leave Cell Blank Else Return Value

Nov 5, 2011

I'm trying to set up my formula so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

(I recommend skipping the below text and just opening the attached spreadsheet, instructions/what I'm looking for and trying to achieve and well laid out requirements and examples are in the spreadsheet and much more thoroughly explained then I can do below)

I'm setting up a table that grabs data from columns in a raw data spreadsheet.

For the purpose of the table I'm making, the formula needs to match up both the House, and the year/month from the raw data sheet, then if the two match and are side by side, return the value to the right either in the Plan Field or the actuals field depending on which field in the table the formula is in. If there is no entry or matching criteria for both the house and Month then it should leave the cell blank, not show a 0

So I have a SUMIFS formula that I'm trying to set up so that if there is no criteria match it leaves the cell blank.

So =SUMIFS(sum range, criteria& range, criteria&range), if no matching criteria can be found, leave cell blank, else if matching criteria found then return value from the sumrange.

This is the exact formula I am using:

=SUMIFS(INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$B9, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$A\$8, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), Table!\$A\$9, INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$B\$8, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), TEXT(Table!C\$8, "yyyymm"))

Yeah kind of hard to follow, so attached is a very detailed and well laid out spreadsheet showing the example of what the formula is, how it's working/what it's returning and an example of what i want it to return/look like, so please check out the spreadsheet, it explains it a million times better.

Essentially though i want the formula set up so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

## SUMIFS Multiple Criteria Including Blank Cell

Mar 13, 2013

I am trying to create a SUMIFS function to sum estimated hours for specific systems that do not have a Completed date. I do not want to sum remaining hours if it has been completed. i.e.

=SUMIFS(Hours, System#,"110-000-00, Complete (Date), ISBLANK)

System #
HOURS
Complete (Date)

110-000-00
0.5

210-000-00
0.5

## Return Blank Instead Of \$0.00 In Sumifs

Feb 26, 2010

Shortened for example;
I have created a drop down list with gas, groceries and travel as the categories.
column a is labeled expenses and formatted as currency.
column b is labeled category with the drop down list in each cell.

column d contains each item, gas, groceries and travel on separate rows.
column e will contain the total for each item in column d using "sumifs formula".

If there are no travel expenses, instead of returning \$0.00 I want the cell to be blank.
I know how to do this in a simple sum function but sumifs are sumthin else.
I have tried using <> for not equal to and everything else I can think of and I usually get a VALUE error.
how do I get it to be blank instead of \$0.00???

## IF SUM Unless Another Cell Has A Value Then Leave Blank?

Apr 20, 2014

I have a 'Total' Cell (I23) that has the following Formula: =IF(SUM(D23:H23)>0,SUM(D23:H23),"")

But I would only like the formula to 'work' if another "Total" cell (I57) further down the sheet is Blank.Therefore if Cell I57 has a value, the Cell I23 is left Blank.

## Leave The Cell If Its Blank

Nov 23, 2007

I'm want this formula, =IF(\$C30="Y",\$A29+1,""), to leave cell A29 blank if cell C30 doesn't have a "Y" in it. If cell C30 does have a "Y" in it then I want to add one day to cell A29. Cell A30 should return 28-Feb, but in stead it returns 0-Jan.

## Formula To Leave A Cell Blank

Aug 25, 2009

## If Tab Exists Put Cell, If Not, Leave Blank

Feb 26, 2007

Excel Version: 2000

Workbook has the possiblities of 366 tabs at the bottom, but for a normal calendar year will only have 26.

The tab name is the ending date of the pay period without the year. So for Feb 25, 2007 the tab would be named 0225

On a yearly calculations page I am simply trying to say IF TAB 0225 exists then cell equals '0225'!A2 otherwise the cell should be blank.

I tried this, but gets a reference failure instead of putting nothing...

=IF('0102'!A2=0,"",'0102'!A2)

In this example the possible tab name would be 0102. If the tab exists, everything works fine, but since in this case it doesn't, I get a reference failure. #REF!

I NEED the result to be empty if the tab doesn't exist.

Any idea would be helpful. I'd rather not have 366 tabs when only 26 are needed for any calendar year.

## Add Time (minutes) Or Leave Cell Blank

Jun 18, 2014

cell A1 has the time (09:00), cell A2 has the minutes (60), cell A3 is the sum of A1+A2.

Im using this formula =A1+TIME(0,A2,0) - which is fine, except A1 is sometimes blank, so therefore I would like A3 to be blank.

I thought I could use this: =IF(A1,"","",(A1+TIME(0,A2,0)) But it doesn't work.

## Hide Formula And Leave Cell Blank?

## Leave Other Cells Blank If No Data In Cell

May 9, 2009

I'm using a formula that I got from a previously made excel sheet. The formula does what I need it to do and looks like this: =INT((D10-10)/2)

The problem is, if I don't enter a number in the cell D10, all the cells with this formula show -5.

If I don't want data entered into D10 yet, I'd like all the cells with that formula to be blank until I actually enter a number in D10.

I think it has to do with using an IF statement followed with ""? Am I on the right track?

Also, if I have other formulas like =SUM(AP3:AQ6), but the cells it refers to are blank, how can I make the cell with the formula also be blank rather than show a 0?

I know I can turn off the "Show a zero in cells that have zero value" option, but I was wondering how to do it with the formula instead.

## How To Leave Truly Empty Cell If Criteria For IF Statement Is FALSE

Jul 2, 2014

How to leave a cell truly empty if the criteria of my IF statements is untrue. Currently, I'll write something like:

[Code] ....

But for some reason, when I copy and paste the resulting range of values elsewhere (to rid myself of the formula that determined them), the cells that did not return a value (where the statement is FALSE), are not recognized by a "Go To Special > Blanks" request, until I select all of the "empty cells" and clear them manually. Yet when I try to do a search on the same range for an empty space, I get no hits.

## How To Return Blank Result If No Match For VLOOKUP

Jun 25, 2008

I'm using this formula (thanks to dafan & HalfAce [url]
=IF(VLOOKUP(\$A177,\$A\$736:\$C\$787,3,FALSE)=0,"",VLOOKUP(\$A177,\$A\$736:\$I\$787,3,FALSE))
to return the value located in the 3rd column of the range when the value in the 1st column of the range matches the data in A177.

However, there isn't a match for the data in A178 in the range, so the formula returns "#N/A". I would like the cell containing the formula to remain blank in those instances.

## Return A Value If 2 Other Criteria Match

Jan 11, 2009

Rather than attempt to describe my problem here and risk cofusing people on what I want to achieve I have put a diagram together. I think this is the best way to illustrate my problem.

Diagram is available here

Please bare in mind I need this doc to be compatible with the 2003 version of Excel.

## Match Criteria And Return Value From Different Row

Feb 22, 2007

I have 2 rows of data and want excel to find the number of times that a number appears in the first row and then return the value of a cell in the same column but in the second row of data. I need it to repeat this until all matches in row one, and their corresponding number in row 2 have been found and then add all the results from row 2 together to give a single numerical answer. I have tried the ' lookup' function but this only returns the first number that matches the criteria and does not continue to find the remaining matches.

## 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

## Return Rows That Fit Criteria Via Index / Match?

Nov 6, 2013

I have a dataset of a few hundred rows, but will only provide a small sample of rows for this example.

I need INDEX/MATCH to return the correct values for the subset below.

Column A (Forecast Status) - Column B (Account Name)
Commit - Account01 (Row 1)
Commit - Account02 (Row 2)
Won - Account03 (Row 3)
Won - Account04 (Row 4)
Won - Account05 (Row 5)
Upside - Account06 (Row 6)
Lost - Account07 (Row 7)
Upside - Account08 (Row 8)
Won - Account09 (Row 9)
Commit - Account10 (Row 10)

In a new tab, I am creating a 'dashboard' view that will group each of the following:

Commit ONLY Accounts in cell A1 (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 1,2,10)
Won ONLY Accounts in B1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 3,4,5,9)
Upside ONLY Accounts in C1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 6,8)
Lost ONLY Accounts in D1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 7)

## Match Criteria And Return Lowest Numeric Value

Apr 3, 2006

I would like a Formula to match 3 criteria in the following order:

1. Numeric Reference (NOT Unique)
2. Numeric Values ( NOT Unique) - lowest value
3. Numeric Label (Unique)

The Numeric Reference that I'm looking for will vary (Input Cell).

Search /Match ALL specified (duplicate) References.
From the specified References Return the Numeric Label that has the "LOWEST"
Numeric Value .

Data Layout is 3 Rows:
1st Row E4:AC4 Numeric Values (NOT Unique)
2nd Row E5:AC5 Numeric Labels (Unique)
3rd Row E6:AC6 Numeric References (NOT Unique)

Sample Data:
E4:AC4 Numeric Values (NOT Unique) 145 127 120 160 130 170 160 160
E5:AC5 Numeric Labels (Unique) 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
27
E6:AC6 Numeric Reference 8 0 8 2
0 10 8 30

Scenario:
Looking for Numeric Reference 8, the relevant Numeric Labels are 20, 22 and
26. Their respective Numeric Values are 145, 120 and 160. The Numeric Label
with the lowest value of 120 is 22.

Expected Result:
Numeric Label 22

## Match Two Criteria And Return Multiple Rows

Oct 26, 2011

I'd like to return multiple rows with two matches on criteria (ID and First Term). I'm able to return all grades for a given ID but do not understand how to get the second criteria, First Term, in my statement.
