# Value Not Available Error - Counting Blank Cells

Feb 24, 2009

I'm trying to to create a formula where if two different cells have no value (K10 & O10) a third cell will also be blank (N10)

I have the following formula which follows these steps when i evaluate it.

=VLOOKUP(K10&O10,\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "&O10,\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "&" ",\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

=VLOOKUP(" "\$J\$77:\$K\$98,2,0)

#N/A

How can i deliver a blank cell as the answer?

## 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))))

## Counting Non-coloured Blank Cells?

## Counting Blank Cells Using Sumproducts

Sep 1, 2009

I am trying to put together a table from which I'll attach a chart showing-at a glance-where open complaints are in our process:

are they open, closed, waiting for samples, waiting for QC, QC'd pending admin approval, etc.

my log consists of a lot of columns which track various pertinant info about each complaint. Such as A-complaint ID, B-date opened, C-date closed, K-initial QC investigation, L-final QC, M-admin status (pending/approved/denighed), N-notes (boiler plate notes like "pending ra samples" or "closed").

I used this formula alot in my various analyses =SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(Log!open)=\$O74),--('ComplaintLog (101408).xls'!iqc="pending")) without issue.

Until now. I want to search multiple criteria starting with the year (2009, in this case) and whether or not the issue is closed (date in column C). Only need a count.

How do I append the sumproduct formula? I've looked at isblank but get crazy results from #value to #name to 340 (I only have 292).

## Counting Blank Cells With Formulas

Nov 29, 2011

PeriodWeek #DayDateNotes11Thursday29-DecBB vaca11Friday30-DecBB vaca

Tab1

PeriodWeek #DayDateNotes11Thursday29-DecBB vaca11Friday30-DecBB vaca

Tab 2

I have the column E in excel labeled 'Notes' in tab 1 adding at the bottom of the column using(=COUNTA(E2:E29), so if the cell is empty it doesnt add it up in the totals. In tab two i have that same column linked via formula. In tab 2 its counting the empty cells because even though they appear blank they have a formulas in them how do i get it to not count those cells. here is the formula im using in column E tab 2.

=IF('tab1'!E2="","",'tab2'!E2)

## Counting Blank Cells And Countifs

Jan 18, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that is used to capture information about Service Requests that my team handles in a 6 month period. At the end of January, the metrics for January will be added and the metrics for July will "fall off".

I need to be able to calculate the number of requests that were still active for each month. The formula I have created for this is below:

=COUNTIFS(Table1[Date Submitted],"Month Beginning of the First Month Being Reported", Table1[Date Closed], ">A Day Before Current Month Closing")

So, if my reporting period was July 2012 to December 2012, my formula for December would look like:

=COUNTIFS(Table1[Date Submitted],"7/1/2012", Table1[Date Closed], ">1/6/2013")

This accounts for anything that was opened in the months that was not closed before the month closing of the current month being reported.

I have two issues that I'm having with this formula:

1. The formula does not take into account the Service Requests that do not have a date in the "Date Closed" columns. Is there a way I can also count the items that have a blank "Date Closed"?

2. This formula will have to be changed every time a month "falls off". For example, when the reporting period changes from July to December to August to January, the formula for December will change to:

=COUNTIFS(Table1[Date Submitted],"8/5/2012", Table1[Date Closed], ">1/6/2013")

Is there a way I can have it change automatically without me having to do it manually?

## Stopping A Graph From Counting Blank Cells As 'zero'

Aug 27, 2009

see attached doc. The graph is showing the overall % from the table above. However months april-december are blank although they have a formula in them. This is causing the graph to show thes months as 0%.

## Date Formula Counting Blank Cells

Dec 9, 2009

I have a simple date formula that I want to present "yes" in a cell when another cells date is less then or equal to "Today". I just can't figure out how to make it show my result cell as blank if my date cell is blank?

here is my formula....
=IF(G8 <= TODAY(), "YES", "")

## Counting Some Blank Cells And Ignoring Others In A Range.

Sep 5, 2009

Using formula rather than VB, I would like to calculate the number of blank cells that appear in a column BEFORE the first active cell but exclude any blank cells that appear after the first active cell. To elaborate, I have sheets that contain the days of each month and I need to exclude for other calculation purposes, the number of days (cells) where no entry of data has been input at the beginning of a month, NOT after the first data entry. ie. September has 30 days.

The first data entry is the 10th and there are no entries (thus far) after the 10th, the result that I seek, will be 20 (although only one cell has data), being the days left in the month AFTER the first entry. I have looked at COUNT functions but cannot find an solution. Perhaps it's not possible using basic formula?

## Counting Non-Blank Cells - COUNTA Returns 0

Jan 19, 2012

I have a formula counting non blank cells in another sheet 'Mem' I know there are 21 entries in Column M, which it used to show as the result. Today it shows 0. The 21 entries are still there.

Code:
=COUNTA(Mem!\$M:M)

The cell containing the formula is B6. The bottom bar of Excel has: Ready Circular:B6

## Pivot Table Counting Blank Cells

Apr 2, 2008

why it is counting every blank cell as 1. I have tried to copy my data as paste as special value and run pivot again but I get the same result. For you visual consideration, I've attached a sample spreadsheet.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells In Formula Counting Days Between Two Dates

Jul 22, 2014

I have the following formula which counts number of days between dates in two adjacent cells excluding holidays

=NETWORKDAYS(U311,V311,\$AA\$4:\$AA\$14)-1

The \$AA\$4:\$AA\$14 refers tote range where the excluded holiday dates are stored.

I have included the -1 at the end as it over counts by one day every time. i.e. if the same date is in both cells it counts 1

However if no date is in both fields it count -1 (minus one)

If a date is just in one field it counts a very high number, example below.

-1

16/07/2014

-29879

20/06/2014
08/07/2014
12

[code].....

is there a better formula to use for this? How do I get the result to show ZERO when both cells are empty? can I get the result to show number of days to present date where there is only a date in first column?

## Counting Cells With Zero But Not Blank Cells

Oct 18, 2009

I know this question may have been posted before, but I can not seem to get this to work with my formula. I have a formula to count the values of a column so that I can convert it to a graph. I am giving a value of 1 to cells that contain numbers between 0 and 9.5 and giving a value of 0 to cells that contain numbers greater than 9.5. It works fine except that I have some blank cells that I do not want to get rid of and it is counting those as zeros and giving them a value of one. I want to ignore the blank cells or give them a value of zero.

=IF(AND(F2>=0,F2

## Ignore Blank Cells Zeros And Error Cells From MIN Function?

Oct 24, 2013

I have a spreadsheet for which I have to set up a formula to get the minimum value from a range of cells, but that range can include blank cells, errors (#DIV/0) and zeros, all of which I want to be ignored. I can work out how to ignore EITHER the zeros

(=MIN(IF(C10:G100,C10:G10)),

or the error cells

(=MIN(IF(ISNUMBER(C9:G9),C9:G9)),

How to exclude both. If I try to combine both of these exclusion criteria it doesn't work and I end up with the answer #DIV/0, which is one of the values I want it to ignore.

## Error Message On Blank Cells

Sep 19, 2013

I have an Input sheet that I want to validate that the user has entered values in all of the fields before they move on. Data is in rows 5 to 25, but could be in any column starting from column d to the last column. My procedure is not producing the error message. My code is copied below

Code:

## Vlookup Returns Error For Blank Cells In Gradebook

Jul 15, 2006

I've managed to set up a gradebook.

However, is there a way that I can get Vlookup not to return N/A when I have a blank cell on the report (not in the data table). I want to be able to calculate the progressive grade average of a stduent as the year progrsses.

## Prevent #DIV/0 Error In Average When All Cells Are Blank/Empty

May 19, 2008

I'm looking for a function that will display the average of a row of cells, while at the same time not displaying any error messages. It's easy to average cells without blank values, but to combine that with no errors is difficult for me. I saw many ways to do the average, one of which is:

= SUM(A1:E1)/COUNTIF(A1:E1,">0")

That function doesn't work for a row of blank cells (i.e., hidden rows), though. The result is an error message.

I also read about a way to ignore an error in a computation:

=IF(ISERROR(F1),"",F1)

The problem is when I combine those functions I get a blank cell no matter which function I put first, and without regards to cell values or not. The reason I want this to be error-free is that I have to average the "average column" at the bottom of the table, too (i.e., F100).

## Check For Blank / Empty / Error Cells In Select Case

Aug 3, 2012

I am using a Uderform in order to check if some cells in several columns are higher or lower than values I set in my textboxes.

However, I think I am having a mistake in my code (it runs but doesnt return the correct informations) as I have blank cells in certain columns.

Concretely I am giving 1 point if the criteria is valid (if for example the value in the cell is <= 1) but some of these criteria are 1 when they should be 0.

As I said it runs but I need to add a fix for empty cells / blank cells and if possible N/A error cells in this so that the code gives 0 to the criteria and moves to the next column (next select case)..

## Count Blank Cells To Avoid Runtime Error 1004

Mar 10, 2013

I got a macro connected to a button that select empty cells within a range and fill them with the value above. The code looks like this:

Code:
Range("A1:A10").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, 23).Select
Selection.Resize(, 4).Select
Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=R[-1]C"

[Code] .......

If you press the button twice you will get run-time error 1004 becuase Excel can't find any empty cells.

I want a function that counts blank cells before running the macro. If there are no blanks I don't want to execute the macro. That is to avoid run-time error 1004.

## Count Non-blank, Non-numeric, Non-zero, Non-space, Non-error Text Cells (2007)

Jan 29, 2010

I know different variations of this question get asked all the time... but I can't find an answer that I'm sure will *always* do what I want.

I have a range of cells (A1:A10), and I want to count all the text entries of positive length. That is to say, I don't want to count:

blanks
numbers
zeros
spaces
errors

I'm sure I need to use the LEN function, but I can't quite figure out how.

this counting expression will be inserted in a SUMPRODUCT formula

## Blank Counting Amongst Two Data Columns

Oct 17, 2013

So, in general I do have two columns F and G taken from the other xls.

Age is obviously difference between today and open date

Open date is open date.

Age and due date.png

In this case, I have 3 rows where there is no open date extracted, therefore is no age. The counter stops on them and shows 529 in total instead of 532 or shows the age as far more than 365 days. How can I count the blank cells, but only in the range of the list I do have, not the all blanks I have from the beginning till the end of the column, so I could (for similar in this case) have 3 blanks cells counted?

Sometimes is also stuck in the middle of counting (when blanks are inside there) and the total number is even smaller. What function can I use to count these 3 (or less, more inn the future) as BLANK to have the total numbers realistic?

## Counting Should Stop At Blank Cell

Nov 9, 2009

The code down below counts all cells from column A2 to I11. The problem; the code should stop counting if there is a blanc cell in a column and go to the next column to countinue. My query; how should the code be modified so it will stop counting if there is a blanc cell.

## Excel 2010 :: Bottom To Top Counting With One Criteria (Up To Blank)

Jul 7, 2014

find the attached excel 2010 file <Count LBP or UBP.xlsx>.

My requirement is if `LBO' is available (in Column A) then the formula should count the number of `LBP' available above the `LBO' upto the blank cell. If there is no `LBP' above the `LBO' then it should plot zero in Correponding Column B Cell. If 2 `LBP's available above the `LBO' upto balnk space it should plot `2' in Correponding Column B Cell.

As like `LBO' and `LBP' the formula should work for `UBO' & `UBP'. refer the attached excel file.

## Ignore Blank Cells And Truly Blank Cells In Named Range?

Jan 13, 2014

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.

## Counting Unique Values Within Date Range Formula Error?

Aug 21, 2013

I have an issues with a formulae I have written to measure two factors;

A; How many different countries appear within a certain date range. B; What countries are they.

I tried a unique list, but could not get it to work within a range? I dont particuarly care how the data is pulled through as long as I do it. At the moment I have become stuck in 'Unique Ranges' and have n given up?

The formulae issue is in the tab "Problem_Formulae", the dat in the sheet 1, and the date ranges in sheet 2. Also, just to make life a bit more challenging pivot tables are a no go .

## 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.
