# Counting Non-coloured Blank Cells?

## Counting Coloured Cells

Dec 28, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that contains various different coloured cells,
I need to be able to:
1. count the number of cells in a given range that are coloured a certain colour.

2. show the answer of a sum involving the above, i.e in range D1:D:5 the sum of 10 + blue cells, minus yellow cells = 12

eg.

ABCD12345Sum of 10 (plus blue cells minus yellow cells in range D:1 to D:5) should equal 12

## Counting Specific Coloured Cells

Jul 23, 2014

This code colours the NEXT cell when a certain cell houses a value.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Rng As Range
For Each Rng In Range("G2:C1417")
If Rng.Value = 6 Then Rng.Offset(1, 0).Interior.Color = vbBlue
Next Rng
End Sub

So in this case if a cell has a value of 6 then the Next cell down is colour coded blue.

Here is my question.Is there a way I could write some code to count the number of newly coloured cells on the sheet and then print the total.This would save me having to go through long sheets counting manually.

## Formula For Counting Coloured Cells.

Apr 15, 2009

I have a table of numbers with conditional formating, formula's are...

=COUNTIF(OFFSET(\$W3:\$AB3,1,0),W3+1)+COUNTIF(OFFSET(\$W3:\$AB3,1,0),W3-1) - color, lemon.
=COUNTIF(OFFSET(\$W3:\$AB3,-1,0),W3+1)+COUNTIF(OFFSET(\$W3:\$AB3,-1,0),W3-1) - color, light blue.

Column AC, I want to count the number of cells that are lemon for each row.
Column AD, I want to count the number of cells that are light blue for each row.

Is it possible?

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting And Counting Coloured Cells?

Nov 1, 2011

i have a spreadsheet in excel 2007. It shows a students target grade in one column and their recent test mark in another column. Firstly i have applied conditional formatting to say whether or not the student has hit their target, below or above, using red, yellow and green colours. This all works fine.

Now i would like to add a formula that counts the number of cells that are red, yellow or green etc.....

## Conditional Formatting (the Cell In 'Work' Is Coloured Red, If Not Then It Is Coloured Green)

Mar 31, 2009

I have a workbook (see attached) that has 2 sheets, Work and Holiday. I want to be able to enter a persons initials into the wrksheet 'Work' for each day of the week.

If that person is listed on the holiday sheet for that day as 'A' then the cell in 'Work' is coloured Red, if not then it is coloured Green. I have tried to get this to work using a defined list and various IF statements but all to no avail.

## 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?

## 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?

## 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

## 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

## Sum Column With Only Coloured Cells

Nov 14, 2008

I have a worksheet containing a large column with random coloured (red) cells, how can I Sum only the coloured cells and then only the empty cells?

## Copying Coloured Cells

Sep 9, 2008

managed to count cells based on colour, however if the colour is variable due to conditional formatting then the UDF doesnt work. So my next thought is just to copy the colours into another column next to it and then get the UDF to count those colours. however copying just the colours is not as easy as seems. when i use format painter the colour all comes out the same (once again i am presuming this is due to conditional formatting). the macros etc seem to complicated for this is there a simple thing i am missing?

## Toggle Cells With Coloured Backgrounds

Apr 17, 2009

Having searched and read lots of posts, but without finding the answer.

Is it possible to creat a macro that toggles a cell between [empty], [x], [o] and [n/a], with the [x] cell having a background colour of green, the [o] cell having a background colour of red and the [n/a] with a background of yellow.

The above cells won't have anyother function as they will be used as indicators in a progress chart.

## Can Link Row Of Coloured Cells Into Another Spreadsheet In Same Workbook?

Jan 14, 2014

I have created a Vacation Calendar workbook with 6 sheets. All the sheets contain the 12 month calendar. Each row contains an employee and the columns are the days of the week. I have to keep track of 5 departments. I have 5 supervisors that are on different sheets that need to be included on the 6th sheet. I have set conditional formating to show that when I type "v" in a cell that is will go green. Is there a way to populate this information to another sheet without having to copy and paste?

## COUNTIF Of Conditional Formatted Coloured Cells With VBA

Jun 10, 2014

I know the VBA code to count cells from a data set that were manually colour-coded.

The problem is that the code (pasted below) doesn't seem to pick up cells that were coloured via Conditional Formatting. How do I do this? What is the VBA (if there is one)?

Function COLORCOUNT(varRange As Range, varColor As Range)
Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In varRange
If cell.Interior.ColorIndex = varColor.Interior.ColorIndex Then
COLORCOUNT = COLORCOUNT + 1
End If
Next
End Function

## Macro To Count Rows With Coloured Cells

Mar 27, 2007

I have a sheet with colour coded cells and I need a macro that counts the number of rows with coloured cells.

I've tried the following code but I always get a count of 0 which isn't right.

Sub Count_Coloured_Cells()

Sheets("Issues").Select
Dim i, c
Dim LastRow As Long
i = 1
c = 0
LastRow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row

Do While i < LastRow + 1
If Rows(1 + i & ":" & 1 + i).Interior.ColorIndex xlNone Then
c = c + 1
End If
i = i + 1
Loop

MsgBox (c)

End Sub

Remember, it's the number of rows I need to count (i.e. one row may have several colour coded cells but I only need to count it once).
