The result is a variable/number (235), "d" or a blank cell ("").
This formula is in a column and works fine where there are numbers in corresponding cells. The problem arises with corresponding cells which appear blank (show no values) but contain references to other cells: they result in a "d" when nothing should be displayed.
So while a corresponding blank cell is correct if it shows no values, it gives me this problem - I don't want "d" or anything.
I have a page that shows staffing levels. If the member of staff is in work then I have to enter a value of 1 on each member so I can calculate the number of staff present. If they are on leave or similar then I enter a text value such as AL which discounts then from the total staff.
Is there a way to have the default value of 1 in a range of cells if the cell is blank automatically? Can this be done via VB?
there is data going to excel from database. The data is something like jan to dec sales and in a arbitrary fashion. now if there wont be data availble for say month of july then nothing will be there.
Now i need to nicely formulate data from jan feb ..Dec and in same order in another cells. Now for empty cells data after formualting it is coming as #N/A. and by this i am getting a same thing in the application where this excel sheet is being used. So for eliminating it i need to use 'if' such that if it is undefined or NULL then blank should be there in the formulated cell.
For example if I were to take the data in cells d3($358), d4($321), d5($130), d6($82) and skip a cell to now make the same data into cells d3, d5, d7, d9. Next, the data in cells f3, f4, f5, f6 would be merge into the blank cells of d4, d6, d8, d10.
The final result would look like column B. I have over two years of sales data in two separate columns that I need to merged into one column. Is there easier way without a simple cut and paste one cell at a time as this would take an enormous amount of time to complete? I’m not that good with VBA codes so a formula works good, but if VBA is the way to go then tell how to enter it on my worksheet.
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.
I have a column of dates in column E1:E100. E1 = 25/06/2012 E2 = 02/07/2012 E3 = 09/07/2012 etc.
In column F1:F100 I will insert "Y" in the one of the blank cells next to one of the date cells in column E1:E100.
In cell B1 I want to reference where the cell in column F is "Y" then use respective date in column E.
If i have "Y" in cell F1 then in B1 I want to show E1 (25/06/2012). If i have "Y" in cell F2 then in B1 I want to show E2 (02/07/2012). If i have "Y" in cell F3 then in B1 I want to show E3 (09/07/2012). etc.
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?)
I am trying to create formula that will show overtime worked in a given day. The code I am using is a simple one ([ cell - 8], for hours worked). The problem is when the time cells are blank/not used it shows a -8 in the cell. what I need to do to create a code that will eliminate the -8 from showing. The cell its self is taking the result from another cell with a formula and then subtracting 8 from the result of the formula in the other cell.
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:
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".
in my document column "L" have some formulas,it's like this. =150*1.5+25*1.5 i need to make that formula to two part.it's like this. =150*1.5 =25*1.5 that two part need show below that formula cell in two rows.
I am trying to get my cell to match the name of the file. I am aware of the following formula: =MID(CELL("filename"),SEARCH("[",CELL("filename"))+1,SEARCH("]",CELL("filename"))-SEARCH("[",CELL("filename"))-5)
This does return what I want, but members of my team often have several sheets open within one Excel window. The formula returns the most recently opened file within the window rather than the name of that particular file. This then distorts my results sheet as it ends up with the name of the most recent file opened rather than the person's name (which is what the file is called)
I have copy 65'000 formula text cells from a software and paste it to excel. But, the formula in cell is not activated. In order to activate the cell formula, I have to click on each individu cell and press enter to active it. But i got 65'000 rows of the similar cells. So, what is the quick way to all the text formula at the same time.
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.
