# 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.

## Formula To Average Numbers Leaving Out Blank Cells

May 26, 2009

Here is the formula I am using however it interprets the blank cells as 0% and includes it in the average. To make it more difficult there will be some 0%'s.

## Leaving Cell Blank If Certain Value

Sep 4, 2008

I have a spreadsheet table which shows different things but in particular has a column of data ranging from numbers 1 to 23. I carry forward these numbers to display in a different table, so am simply linking from the second table into the first to bring that data forward (literally using formula =B1, in top cell, =B2 in second cell and so on). That's fine.

However I would like to be able to show a blank for any occurences of numbers 4, 14 and 24.

Is there a formula that I could use to firstly carry forward the data, but to then leave blank if the value is either 4, 14 or 24?

## Leaving The Cell Blank But Allowing The Macro To Run

Mar 15, 2007

How can I have my macro run in its cell and still allow the cell to be blank? Say I have a number, 0.99, in the cell and I want to delete it and leave it blank. I can either push "Backspace" or the delete key and it still leaves zeros.

If I push the space bar it stops the macro (which I do not want to happen) and leaves the cell blank because I added a space.

## Adding Dates But Leaving A Cell Blank

Aug 20, 2009

How can i leave Cell D3 etc blank untill i have inserted the end date it will look tidier when i do my full spread sheet and also is there a calender on a toolbar i could put on my spread sheet for easy inputing of dates.

## Dragging Formulas: Replicate A Formula In Cells

Feb 11, 2009

If I need to replicate a formula in some cells, I usually drag it down or sideways. Is there any easier way to do this? I have large numbers of cells into which to drag the formula. Can I specify which cell range the formula is applicable to (i.e. A1:A10,000 or something) instead of dragging? If so how?

## Combining TODAY Formula And Returning Blank Value?

Apr 11, 2014

I'm currently using the following formula to return either a "PAST DUE" or "DUE" value in a particular cell based on the date entered in the cell in the previous column.

=IF(AND(TODAY()>=BG43+5,TODAY()=BG43+10,"PAST DUE",""))

However, if the reference cell is blank the formula automatically triggers to put in "PAST DUE" as the value. I would like to modify this formula so if the reference cell is blank that this cell will also remain blank. I've tried a few different options, but I'm getting an "too many arguments" error on what I've tried.

## IF Blank Or If Not Blank Function That Works With Adjacent Cell With Formula In It?

Aug 12, 2014

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?)

## IF Statement To Leave Cell Blank If Multiple Cells Are All Blank?

Mar 12, 2014

I am looking for an IF statement that would leave a balance cell blank if both the revenue and expense cells are blank, otherwise a formula would be calculated.

## How To Populate Blank Cells With Sequence Until Non Blank Cell Is Encountered

Mar 22, 2014

I presume this is fairly simple to do, since it's certainly easy enough to do manually by filling in a couple of rows and dragging them down, but I need it to be performed in a macro that I can run before other macros run.

What I need specifically is for the macro to go to G1 and insert the number .01... Then go to G2 and insert .02... Then G3 and insert .03... And repeat this until it finds the first non-blank cell ( row number this occurs at varies), at which point it ends and does nothing to that populated cell or any other cell in the column thereafter (including other blanks farther down).

This all needs to be done in Arial, 10pt, white.

## List - Filling In Each Blank Cells With Value Contained In First Non-blank Cell Above It

Feb 27, 2013

I have a list that looks something like this:

Column B

Row 4 Item 1
Row 5 Item 2
Row 6
Row 7
Row 8 Item 3
Row 9
Row 10 Item 4
Row 11
Row 12
Row 13
Row 14 Item 5

The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"

I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.

## 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))))

## Rearrange Columns By Number Leaving Blank Spaces

Oct 16, 2013

I have a lot of numbers in different columns:

A B C
1 1 2
2 4 6
3 6 9
4 8 .
5 9 .
6
7
8
9
.
.
.

I want to to order them so they leave blank rows if they don't match...like this:

A B C
1 1 2
2
3
4 4
5
6 6 6
7
8 8
9 9 9
.
.

## Combining Names: If The Cell Is Blank The Result Should Not Leave A Space

Jan 16, 2009

I have 6 columns and would like to combine them. If the cell is blank the result should not leave a space.

- Prefix
- First Name
- Last Name
- Middle Initial
- Last Name
- Suffix

Example: Mr. Henry J. Weeks, III
Example: Henry Weeks
Example: Mr. Weeks
Example: Henry J. Weeks, III

## Formulas That Include Blank Cells

Oct 9, 2008

I can't figure out how to make this formula work because I need to use cell AG46 and it contains an IF formula that leaves the cell blank if the sum = 0. I keep getting the #VALUE! error. How do you create a formula using a cell that has an IF formula that could leave the cell blank?

Basically this is what I need in cell I12:
=sum(a12)-(ag46*8)

## 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)

## Cells That Depend On Formulas To Remain Blank

Jun 13, 2009

i am wondering if there is a way that i can have these cells that depend on formulas to remain blank, until i have my data entered, or that they may remain blank, but give me running totals of only the cells i have inputted.

## Get Autofilter To Exclude Blank Cells That Contain Formulas

Feb 3, 2012

I have the following line in a macro:

Range("b22:L" & Range("J" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).AutoFilter

This selects rows based on whether they contain data and creates an autofilter of the range.

The data Im using this on will have blank cells as the bottom rows but they will contain formulas that blank the cells based on ISNA() conditions,

How do I get the above code to only select cells with visible data and ignore those that are blank but contain formulas.

## Converting Text To Numbers In Multiple Sheets While Leaving Missing Values Blank?

Jul 24, 2013

I have an Excel workbook with around 100 worksheets. All of them have similar columns, but the values are stored as text. The length of columns and missingness is different in different worksheets. I will be grateful if any of you could suggest a VBA that could convert the numbers stored as text back to numbers. I have been looking for an answer for a while, but cant seem to find one that automatically looks at every worksheet and converts text into number.

## Delete Rows With Blank Cells But Housing Formulas

Sep 1, 2009

I have several lists that I need to be able to print out periodically.

The main worksheet that underpins each list is over 900 lines long and numerous calcs and formulae populate columns to provide the data for my 'print lists'.

I need my 'print lists' on seperate worksheets and I have linked the data from my main worksheet results, using IF statements to stop unwanted results being displayed by making the rows appear empty (i.e. to display "").

Due to the design of my main Worksheet it is inevitable that I have many rows in each 'print list' that are not required for that particular 'print list'.

I want to remove the 'empty' rows from the print sheets at the time of printing. I cannot use the GoTo > Special > Blanks > Delete Rows because the rows are not recognised as being 'blank'.

I have attached 2 screenshots of my 'print lists'.

P.S. I am not assuming anything but I have searched on OZGRID and it appears to me that I might need to use Excel/VBA?

## Formulas In Offset: Run It The Cells Remain Blank But The Code Is Above In The Fx

Apr 26, 2006

s1. Offset(1, 2).Range("K4:K464").Formula = "=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$B\$1063,2,FALSE)),"""",(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$B\$1063,2,FALSE)))"

How do you get code like above to work in Offset? When i run it the cells remain blank but the code is above in the fx.

## 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.

## Keep Cell Blank If Referencing Cell Within IF Formula Is Blank

Jul 28, 2014

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:

Code:
=IF(MONTH(TODAY())>MONTH('Input Page'!B30),YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30), IF(AND(MONTH(TODAY())=MONTH('Input Page'!B30),DAY(TODAY())>=DAY('Input Page'!B30)),
YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30),(YEAR(TODAY())-YEAR('Input Page'!B30))-1))

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".

## Dragging Down Formulas With Inconsistent Cells

Jun 11, 2008

How figure out how to drag down a formula that looks like this for the first three cells (C3:C5)?

=(SUMPRODUCT(Polls!D2:D5,Polls!B2:B5))/(SUM(Polls!B2:B5))
=(SUMPRODUCT(Polls!D8:D11,Polls!B8:B11))/(SUM(Polls!B8:B11))
=(SUMPRODUCT(Polls!D14:D17,Polls!B14:B17))/(SUM(Polls!B14:B17))
...etc.

Is there a way to let Excel know that I'm adding six to each cell, rather than it automatically adding one?

## Count Blank Cells Within A Range Not Including Fully Blank Rows

Jul 15, 2008

I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

But I dont want it to count the cells if the entire row, within that cell, i.e. C6:AD6, is blank.

It should only count the blank cells within a row if there has been some data entered on that row..provided it has been entered within the specified range.

## Imported Data Creates Blank Cells That Aren't Really Blank

Feb 21, 2006

Here's what I'm attempting to do: For each column, X,Y, Z, I am attempting
to count nonblanks. However, the data was imported from Access and Oracle,
and Excel treats what appear to be blank cells as nonblanks. I've tested
this theory by highlighting a couple of "blank" cells and deleting them, and
my count changes. So, can I get Excel to put a value into my "blank" cells,
so then I could filter it out, or create a formula that would only count
dates in my columns (which is what I'm after).

This is what I'm looking at:

A B C
1 2/4/2006 2/6/2006 ("blank")
2 ("blank") 12/13/2005 1/7/2006
3 2/20/2006 1/15/2006 ("blank")

In each column if I use a COUNTA I'll get a total of 3, instead of 2 for A,
3 for B and 1 for C.

## Dragging Cells Changes Range In Formula Of Locked Cell?

Feb 19, 2014

I have a workbook with multiple sheets interacting with one another. On one of them the user is prompted to make lists of expenses in multiple columns. The column labels are in row one, and row two has the sums of all the cells below. I have every sheet in the workbook protected, so that only the cells that need to be modified are unlocked. The problem is that the user can drag cells around and change the range of the functions in row two (locked cells).

For example, A2 has the function =sum(A3:A100). But if the user drags the values in A3:A5 to A6:A8, the formula in A2 changes to =sum(A6:A100). Is there anyway that I can allow the user to drag cells (this could be a useful feature), but keep the formulas in the second row fixed?

## 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.

## Why After Paste Value The Blank Cells Are Like Not Blank Anymore

Aug 13, 2013

the situation is i have a sheet, contains like 500 cells, from A1, to T500, some of the cells are blank, then i figure that from cell A1 to E500 not all the words in capital, so i make it with upper on the2nd sheet, then, i copy + paste value back to the first sheet (A1 to E500)

i get wht i want, but why it's like there's no blank cells anymore on my worksheet.

like you know, if u want to jump from a filled cell to the blank cell, you would hit Ctrl + Down, it jump to the very end of the datas that i paste value before.

so when i hit Ctrl + Down from A1, it jumps to A500, meanwhile the filled cells only 10 cells.

## Copying Down Blank Cells Until Blank Row Is Reached?

May 24, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with data in 7 columns. Columns A-d have one line of data in them but the other 3 columns have more than one line.

How do I write a macro which will copy the first row of the first 4 columns down until I reach an empty row?
