# Ignore Blank Cells But Keep The 0?

May 27, 2014

I am working on 2 tabs in a workbook.

The first tab has raw data - The second is my summary.
TAB1 -includes
column A = name range column B = Evaluation Result 1 %
column C = Evaluation Result 2 %
column D = Evaluation Result 3 %
column E = Evaluation Result 4 %
TAB 2 on...The remainder of the tabs are summary for each name in column A of Tab1.
each summary tab includes
A3 = name
A7 = Evaluation Results 1
A8 = Evaluation Results 2
A9 = Evaluation Results 3
A10 = Evaluation Results 4

The evaluation results can include any % from 0-100 and can also be blank. I need to count the 0 but ignore the blanks so for example on Evaluation Result 1, Im using

=SUMIF(Tab1!\$A:\$A,Tab2!\$A\$3,Tab1!\$B:\$B)

So I can find the name in the list of names and the % score for the evaluation - however I don't know how to ignore the blank cells. If the cells are blank I would like to see "-". if they are 0% I would like to see the 0%.

## 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.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells

Mar 1, 2014

I have a row of cells, say, A1 to G1. I wish to sum the values in cells, say, A1, C1, F1 and G1 only. The chosen cells can have values 0, >0 or Blank. How do I sum the values and ignore the blank cell(s) without getting #VALUE!? Filling the blank cells with "0" is not an option.

(Any blank cells may have a value added at a later date).

Edit: I could use multiple 'IF' statements, but this is cumbersome. There must be a simpler way.

## Count Number Of Cells In Column Per Month Ignore Blank Cells?

Jan 13, 2014

I have this formula which is counting the number of cells in a column that fall within each calender month.

However, if there is a formula at the bottom of column B and C that yield a "", the formula breaks.

In my workbook, B/C:133 have a formula =""

I will need the formula in column E to work if there is a formula that yields a "" in column B and C.

## How To Ignore Blank Cells With Formula

Nov 10, 2011

In cell C1 I hace A1-B1 and in cell DI want to display the status of the cell C1 like this : =IF(C10 ; "NOT OK" ; "OK") This means that when the value of the cell C1 is different then 0 cell D1 will display "NOT OK" and if the value of cell c1 is 0 then D1 will display "OK".

The PROBLEM: Because the cell C1 contains a formula (A1-B1) the D1 cell will display "NOT OK" even if the cell C1 doesn't show any number.

## Ignore One Of The Cells (P29) If Cell Value Is Zero Or Blank?

Dec 13, 2011

I have a spreadsheet and need to ignore one of the cells (P29) if cell value is Zero or Blank and display a blank cell which in this case is (Q2

My current formula is

=SUM(\$P\$19:P29)/2

## Ignore Blank Cells In A Average

Mar 3, 2004

I am doing an average of a column of cells. How do I tell excel to ignore the blank cells in the column and not calculate them in the average?

## 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.

## Ignore Blank Cells In Conditional Formatting?

Feb 15, 2010

I have tried to set up a list of cells to highlight in red any numerical values which are greater than 0 using conditional formatting. This works fine, except that all blank cells are also highlighted in red. Formula is currently: cell value is greater than 0. What do I need to do to ignore the empty cells?

## Conditional Format: Ignore Blank Cells

Feb 5, 2007

Excel 2004 for Mac

I'd like to give a conditional format to a range of cells so that only one cell in the range has a gray background. The condition must include three criteria:
1) The cell cannot be blank, AND
2) The cell's value must be the minimum in the range, AND
3) The cell's value must not equal any value preceding it in the range.

My own attempt looks like this for cell J8 in the range C8:AF8:
=AND(NOT(ISBLANK(J8)),J8=MIN(\$C8:\$AF8),J8\$C8:I8)

Problem: This condition works great for all values entered EXCEPT ZERO. When J8 is the first zero in the range, if it is preceded by a blank cell anywhere else in the range, it fails the third criterion (J8\$C8:I8) because Excel treats the blank cell as though it's a zero. Result: no gray background.

How can I get Excel to "ignore" blank cells.

## Transfer Results Of IF Statement To Another Tab And Ignore Blank Cells?

Apr 15, 2014

I've got a work book (2010 btw) with several tabs.

On tab 5 is an inventory list with "Stock Number and Nomenclature" merged in row A7-Q7 and down to row A23-Q23.

Beside each Item there are “Required Quantities (EA)" in Colum U7-U23. After an inventory is executed, The values are placed in Colum V7-V23 (INV).

Stock Number Nomenclature EA Inv
34419-43450 Mission Modu 1 “X”

After inventorying.... I need a formula that "compares the required quantities (EA) to the actual inventoried values (X)".

IF the actual inventoried quantities are equal to or greater than "Required Quantities" - Display Nothing in tab 6

IF the actual inventoried quantities are LESS than the "Required Quantities" - Display “Stock Number and Nomenclature" in tab 6 for a shortage list, ignoring the "blank cells".

## Adjust Dynamic Range To Ignore Formulas In Blank Cells?

May 19, 2014

Attached is a spreadsheet I am working on that has a series of graphs with defined dynamic ranges. I am having 2 separate issues on 2 different tabs.

1) Ranges named AirRecBra4 (and Bra10); AirComBra4 (and Bra10); AirRemBra4 (and Bra10) are not pulling in data from the correct data points. Instead of using the last 26 data point, they are currently beginning at the top of the column (currently cells 11 to 36 is their respective columns). The formulas are copy and pasted from working offset ranges in the same tab but are reading differently.

2) On the last 6 tabs beginning with Stn Backlog, I want to have defined formulas beginning in cell B119 and continuing downward to at least F200. However, when I add the formulas, the offset reads the formulas as being data and adjusts for that. I do not know how to adjust the dynamic range to ignore formulas in blank cells.

## 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?

## Formula To Ignore Blank Cells And Copy Data That Meets Criteria?

Apr 27, 2014

I have a worksheet (Data) that lists when pupils are in for Nursery sessions during the week. If they are in they have a 3 (hours) by their name in the relevant columns.

In the AM worksheet I now need to pull through a "register" so under each daily heading I need to pull through everyone that has a 3 next to their name under Monday AM / Tuesday AM / Wednesday AM etc. from the Data sheet. However, I don't want it to copy any blank cells. I then need to do the same for the PM sheet.

## Ignore Blank TextBox

Dec 14, 2009

In the below code, in the event that a textbox is blank, I get an error. I tried using the "VAL" function but that didn't work as I had anticipated. Is there a function that will allow me to bypass the blank textboxes? I am sure there must be an easier way than an IF statement that validates each textbox, right?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim v As Long, w As Long, x As Long
Dim y As Long, z As Long

v = Me.TextBox1.Value
w = Me.TextBox2.Value * 350
x = Me.TextBox3.Value * 400
y = Me.TextBox4.Value * 400
z = Me.TextBox5.Value

Me.TextBox6 = Format(v + w + x + y, "##,#0.00")
Me.TextBox7 = Format(Sqr(Me.TextBox6.Value) * 4, "##,#0.00")

End Sub

## SUMPRODUCT - How To Ignore Blank Criteria

Feb 15, 2012

I have set up a formula to count the occurrences of multiple conditions in a table of data (see below..) the formula reads from 4 cells of criteria but I will not always use the 4 criteria and maybe only need to use say 2 criteria - when I do this my formula doesn't work - my example below shows this... How do I make the formula continue to work when some criteria cells don't have any entries?

This table is a simple example but my main work will have a much larger table (poss. several thousand rows) and probably about 10 criteria cells, so running a big formula with 10 nested IF statements will be too cumbersome... any smart workround for this within the SUMPRODUCT formula?

The top left cell (Fruit) is A1..

FruitColoursTownsNamesApplesRedLondonHarryApplesGreenParisBertPearsBlueLondonFred
PlumsRedVeniceSteveApplesRedLondonBertCriteriaResultFruitPears0ColoursTownsLondonNamesFred
FruitColoursTownsNamesApplesRedLondonHarryApplesGreenParisBertPearsBlueLondonFred
PlumsRedVeniceSteveApplesRedLondonBertCriteriaResultFruitPears0ColoursTownsLondonNamesFred

The formula currently in my Result cell is

=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A6=B10)*(B2:B6=B11)*(C2:C6=B12)*(D2:D6=B13))

which returns 0 and should be 1 in this example...

## Ignore Header Row On Blank Worksheet On Consolidate

May 20, 2014

I am attempting to consolidate multiple worksheets into one. The consolidation works fine on worksheets that have data however, as in my example file, there are worksheets which are presently blank (empty of data) - save for the header row.

The problem:

On consolidation, the header row from the "Empty" worksheet becomes a row in the "master" worksheet that is created. How can a worksheet without data be ignored on consolidation?

## Conditional Format Cells Containing Numbers And Letters - Ignore Cells With Number Only

Jul 11, 2014

I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.

## Insert Blanks Rows In Alternate Rows But Ignore If Already Blank

Jun 26, 2014

i have this code which inserts blank rows in alternate rows,

Code:
Sub insertrow()
' insertrow Macro
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Dim count As Integer
Dim X As Integer
For count = 1 To 20
If activecell.Value "" Then
activecell.Offset(1, 0).Select

[code].....

what changes should i make in this code to insert rows only when ther are now blank rows. So first time i run, blank rows are already there, and when i update some data at the bottom and re-run it inserts blank rows again.

## How Do I Have A Graph Ignore Zero Value Cells

Nov 29, 2006

I have a graph that references a column which contains a formula. In the instances where this formula produces a zero value or a DIV/0 error, I would like the graph to contain a blank space.

As it is now, the zero or DIV/0 cell graphs as a zero value. I have tried using an IF statement which takes any zero or error and replaces the cell value with "": IF(A5/A6=0,"",A5/A6)

Even though the cell comes up as blank... a zero value still appears on the graph. The only way for me to have the graph ignore that cell is to go into the cell and delete the formula. This is unnacceptable b/c the data is updated daily... I do not want to have to go through my data every day and delete cells.

## Trying To Ignore Empty Cells In 2007

Apr 14, 2009

I want to create an excel sheet so that I can price out computer hardware so that I can see what it will cost compared to what we would sell it for I have the basic idea laid out but I'm running into a problem with cells that don't have any information in for pricing. I get a "#DIV/0!" for the formula that i have worked out.

I don't want to change the information in the cells that I have for pricing I just want it to show 0 and call it good. The other isssuse that i'm have at the bottom of the page I'm trying to show the totals for everything.

I did a simple (=F4:F34) to Show the total of all the information in the column but it's showing up "#VALUE!" I know that this is from the earlier error so if I could be shown how to make these errors go away that'd be great the final product that I would like to have is I want to use a macro to transport some of the information to a word document so that I can print it off and show our customers a quote without them being able to see the cost on everything.

Dec 19, 2006

I am trying to do is add together numbers in the same cell though in different sheets. However some of the sheets will not have numbers in them and it comes up with an error value. How can I ignore this and still have a value be returned if there is no values entered in some cells?

## SUM Formula: Ignore Error #n/A Cells

Dec 19, 2006

i m trying to add values in different sheets though some of the values have a #n/A in them and i want to ignore this = SUM(Set1!D9,Set3!D9,Set2!D9). However Set1!D9 is an error and I would like to ignore this value!!

## Ignore Duplicate, Ignore Then Paste

Jun 26, 2007

I have in column D starting D9, I have numbers starting at 1, and may finish at 100. But there could be duplicates, 1,2,3,3,4,5,6,6,7,7,8,9,10,10,11,12,13,.........

I would like to only copy the range D9 to H (End of column D), ignoring all the duplicate numbers, to another sheet.

So on the second sheet, it would be 1,2,3,4,5,6...... with the data copied from E,F,G and H.

## Ignore Empty Cells In A Sum / Countif Formula?

Jan 18, 2014

I have a list of assessment scores for students with a matching grade in text form. I want to show the percentage of students that receive "Adv" and "Pro" grades out of the total number of students (cells with data). But I have extra cells in case students are added during the year. I need to have the formula ignore any empty cells and count all of the "Adv" + "Pro" grades divided by number of students with data. I would like to do this by including the extra cells in the formula so I don't need to amend the formula should students be added. This is the formula so far. Maybe there is a totally better way to write this formula.

## Ignore Certain Cells - Trying To Calculate The Time Taken Between Queries

Jan 31, 2009

[url]

In the above, i am trying to calculate the time taken between queries. I do not want any times/queries that are from someone else on the network to be counted.

I need something to ignore the blank cells, and take data from the next cell above which has data. I3, I8 and I14 are currently the trouble spots, and should be displaying 00:00:00, 00:04:00 and 00:06:00 respectively.

Note that someone from the network could have literally thousands in a row before I perform another query, not just alternating like the screenshot.

B is the real life time the query was performed. F is how long the query took. F does not take in to account the seconds between queries, which build up, so i am using B.
