# Formula To Show A Blank Cell When A SUM = Zero

## On my spreadsheet i have 4 columns which are in currency format. The 5th column (total) adds the 4 up which currently looks like this - =SUM(BG44:BG45) this shows £0.00 in the 5th column. What i need is a formula in the 5th column (total) so that when it adds up the 4 previous columns if the sum = £0.00 then the total column should show a blank cell.

Formula In Cell Show Blank If Zero
I have a spreadsheet which imports data from worksheets week 1, 2 etc to a monthly summary.
Is there any way I can show a cell as blank if the return equals 0?

I'm sure the resolution is probably simple but then so am I.

Display/Show Blank Cell Via IF Formula/Function
The following are on a sheet:

A1 = 5700
B1 = 235
C1 = 17:14
D1 = 5922
\$E\$1 = 09:01
\$F\$1= 3

\$E\$1 and \$F\$1 are (the only) absolutes/constants.

A2 contains the following:

=IF(A1>D1,B1,IF(A1+B1<D1,"d",IF(AND(C1<\$E\$1,B1<\$F\$1),"",B1))))

This translates as:

=IF(5700>5922,235,IF(5700+235<5922,"d",IF(AND(7:14<09:01,235<3),"",235))))

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.

If Sum Of Columns Is Blank Show Another Value
I attach a file for you to more easily understand my problem. I have a big table with information, then I would like to summarize this, if all fields for certain "Type" (see file) is blank, then I would like to use another value that I keep as a separate row in the summarize table. But I also need to have it to work if zeros are put in, I need to show that value, that's my biggest problem right now when using sumif forumla.

If Cell Is Blank Then Show Value Of 1
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?

Show Zero Value Instead Of Blank Cell
This is my formula. =IF(SUM(P5:P9)=0,"",SUM(P5:P9)

IF A Cell Is Not Having Data Show It As Blank
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.

Basic IF Function. Return Cell Value Or Show Blank
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.

Sum Below Until Blank Cell
The first program should fill in the coloured cell's per sort.
First it should look for non-blanc cell's in colum A.
Then it shoud sum up the totals between the different sorts of goods.
Then it should look for the next-blanc cell in colum A and do the same.

Basilcally I need a sum function that will add SUM(X:Y-1).
Where X is the row the Xth non-blanc cell is and Y is the X+1th row with a non-blanc cell.

A second program should run after the first one and should copy the coloured cell's to a result page at the end.
First it should look for non-blanc cell's in colum A.
Then copy the name of the product and the coloured cell's per artikel to an result page.

I was trying code such as IF A1 = 0, THEN A1 = "", but can't get the syntax right.

Formula To Show File Name In Cell
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)

Formula Which Changes If Cell Is Blank
I have a spreadsheet which projects the amount of work on hand each week. It runs up to the end of the year and shows the estimated figures and then each week I input the actual figures. The way it works at the moment is that it looks at the estimated work on hand, adds the work on which has been received and then takes off the work that has been cleared...this then gives an estimated level of on hand work.

What I want it to do is to look at the cell which would show the actual work on hand and if thats empty then go on to look at the estimated work on hand. In other words - I want a formula that looks at a cell to see if there's a figure in it and if not uses another cell instead. I have tried: =If(u5=0,r5+y5-z5)

but when I input a figure into U5 it inputs FALSE into the cell. I don't want it to do that, I want it to look in cell U5 and if there's something there then do U5+Y5-Z5.....and if U5 is empty then do R5+Y5-Z5

Convert Blank Formula Cell To Empty Cell
I am using a IF(ISNA(Vlookup##,##,##)),"",(Vlookup##,##,##)) function, in order to remove N/A errors. Is there anyway to convert the "" values to back to an empty cell without anything in it (i.e not text "", but empty as it was originally). I find that the file sizes are very large, when using this function, as data (although blank) is stored in each cell (i know this, because if I use cntr+arrow, it sees it as data, and not an empty area). I don't want to manually go through each cell and delete them as there is quite a bit of data (10000 rows , 2 columns, 30 tabs)

Formula To Show The Value Of One Cell Based On The Value Of Another To Automate Some Internal Processes
I'm trying to get a formula to show me the value of one cell based on the value of another to automate some internal processes. Cell J3 returns today's date, then J4 says what week number that is. J5 concatenates the two to make the look up. Column A is named range "PN", and columns C onwards are named ranges to match the column heading.

What I'm wanting is for the result in test cell 2 (J8), is to return the stock requirements for the current week, based on the result of cell J5. I can do this by using nested IF statements, but that would be 8 cells to calculate, then another one to find the cell that has a value. If there a way to get Excel to recognize the value in J5 as a range name, so it just needs the one formula?

Formula To Make Cell Blank Instead Of Zero
I am looking for a formula that will work with my current formula, and check that cells a1 and b1 contains information. If they do contain info then the original formula should carry on as usual and leave the answer in cell c1. I also need it so when no information has been entered in cells A1 and B1, C1 will be blank instead of containing a zero.

This is the formula I have at the moment:
=IF(SUM(A1=0,B1>0),B1-A1,"No Charge?")

A B C
10.1810.82

Blank Cell Shows 0 Or 12:00 AM If There Is Formula
I am getting 0 or 12:00 AM when I format cell as time and put formula.

G4 = todays date
E17 = time eg. 2:25 AM ( I have to format destination cell as time because E17 has time value

Formula works fine but when there is no data in E17 or E17 is blank then my destination cell shows 12:00 AM.

Formula To Show A Date Range Based On The Amount Shown In Another Cell
Attached is a excel file that has a working formula for tracking cashier variances. I edited out names etc.

I added a new cell called Track Back on the employee search sheet.

What I want to do is only show variances for the amount of days back selected in the Track Back cell.

For example if I select the last 30 days, only the last 30 days would show up below in the sheet.

I am not sure if this is even possible based on the forumla that is already on the sheet. I couldn't figure out a way of doing it. But there are a lot of people on here much better with excel than me

I need to get a formula to calculate the average of the best 3 scores out of 4, but there is some that do not have a value in a cell (so some are only out of 3 scores not 4) and if i simply drop the lowest value and sum the rest, it will incorrectly calculate the average.

Correction Of Formula: When The Result Is 0 It Just Leaves A Blank Cell Without A 0
I have this Formula in a excel sheet =IF(AND(COUNT(F12;G12)=2;G12<F12);G12-F12;IF(AND(COUNT(F12;G12)=2;G12>F12);ABS(F12-G12);""))

My problem is that when the result is 0 it just leaves a blank cell without a 0.
Can i correct this so that when the result is 0 it will actually show a 0 in the cell? I can´t put a 0 in the end of the formula because then it shows zeroes in all the cells without information aswell.

It should also be mentioned that this column contains various background color formatting, for both empty and text cells.

Removing Blank Entries That Show As Zero
I have a workbook containing several worksheets. I use one worksheet to collate information from the others. I do this by referencing the relevant cells I need from the other worksheets with the '=' command.

Conditional Format Formula: Allow The User To Blank Out The Cell Within The Year
i have a set of conditional formatting set up for my workbook, the first is simply that if the result is false the cell is blank(white text,white background). the second if positive result,keeps the text black till 1 year has passed. the problem is the third, i.m trying to allow the user to blank out the cell within the year (white text,white background)if certain criteria are met. the idea is that they change the entry in cell D from T to TX or from M to MX and the formula pick this up, but i keep getting a error saying "your formula contains an error", the formula im using is, =if(or(\$D5="tx","mx")) then i set the format to (white text,white background). its probably really simple but i,ve been trying to solve this now for around 8 hours and i.m stuck

Check Range & Show Blank Instead Of 0
See attached spreadsheet for example of the sheet I am using.

Problem 1.

Columns C and D show me figures when the number in col A is > 2500 or < 550 when these criteria are not met a 0 is displayed in the cell, is it possible to alter my formula so that nothing (a blank cell) is displayed rather than a 0 - I am wondering if there is something like null which I can use?

=IF(A4>2500,A4,)
=IF(A4<550,A4,)

Problem 2.

In column E (normal days) I want to display the value of A if it is > 550 but < 2500 - is there a way of doing this in a single formula? Again I would just like a blank to be displayed if the value of A does not meet the above criteria.

UserForm Show While Another Macro Runs Is Blank
I have a modal userform that I load to warn the user that the system is busy processing a scheduled job. The form is nothing more than a screen that comes up and says "One moment please..." with the form caption set to "Processing...". When I use the form in this way, if I don't use an application.wait command the form just shows the header without the text that it shows when I look at in the in the VBA IDE. (In other words it is just blank.)
