How To Return Contents Of Last Non-blank Cell In Column
May 7, 2014
I am trying to figure out how to return the contents of last non blank cell in column B, based on the name in column A. So, if I choose "Sam", the result I am looking for is "blue". If I choose "Pete", the result I am looking for is "orange".
i need a code that moves down a column and for every empty cell in the column the cell to the left is cleared and then it moves on to the next cell down. the column is not always the same and will start from a selected cell, and the column will contain no more than 5 rows
Want to look in one column and find the first non-blank numerical value, then have it return a value from another column.
Used to nest multiple IF functions together from different cells, but it seems overly complicated and time consuming. Sometimes I have over 30 cells to check.
For example, if Column A contains weekly sales data by week, entered weekly, and Column E has corresponding comparison data from the previous year. I want to enter a formula to check the first row that has sales data entered and have it match up the comparison value in the other column.
I have this table, which can be seen as a basic custom gantt chart: KLRWo.png
And I would like to fill the A column with start dates, based on the first filled cell of the range on the same row, and the header value of its respective column (row 1). It's easier to show my expected result than write it actually:
how to make the data look like a table with three columns. Other than the date, it is space delimited. I have a tracking spreadsheet where Column A is populated with dates for the year. Column C contains daily values.
I don't always start entering daily values on the first day of the year, e.g., this year the first value in Column C corresponds to March 9. All values in Column C are contiguous - there are no blank cells until the value in Column A is greater than today's date code. I would like to use a formula (rather than VBA) to look down Column C and find the first non-blank entry where the value in Column A is less than or equal to today(). In this case, the formula should return the value for March 9, 2008.

I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.
I've got 12 columns (headed Jan - Dec), each of which contains a combination of numerical & blank cells. For each row, I want to select the first non-blank cell and return the column header that it lies in e.g. Row 1, first non-blank cell is in the Apr column, so I want the text "Apr" to be returned to another cell.
I have a conditional IF statement, where I want the content of the cell to be blank if the result of the IF statement is false, ie I want the content of the cell to be as if there were no formula in the cell (this if so that the formula COUNTA(Sheet1!$B:$B) only counts the cells where the result is TRUE).
For example, IF(A1=1,1,"") where A1 1, the content of the cell will have something in it (a space), and won't be blank.
in one column of my spreadsheet and it is returning the correct concatenation for the appropriate lines. However, I wish to have the column's cells return an answer of blank (" ") if B15, B16... etc is blank. In other words, at the moment, a correct answer would read something like '1810sd0000' C10 and B15 used, while an incorrect answer would still display '1810', but I want it to be a blank cell.
What formula would allow me to enter only a 6 digit number and return the entire cell contents, i.e, search for 115403 and get a return of 115403_WACO ? I have tried INDEX and MATCH, but I'm not getting the results I need.
I have inlcuded my workbook that I use for tracking the NFL season and I'd like to add in some team logos just to make it look a little cooler.
The attached workbook includes three sheets, the first of which uses a drop-down for selecting picks. The second sheet has the team logos and the third sheet feeds off the first.
I'd like for team logos to populate into the third sheet based on what is selected in the first sheet.
I've already tried a few methods, all unsuccessfully. I tried this [URL] which was a great idea but it didn't allow for the same image to be repeated potentially 100 times. I also tried a method involving named ranges and indirect lookups to the linked picture image but that would require a different named range for every person and every pick which isn't feasible.
if it's possible to just do a massive nested if statement with a vlookup to return an image but I haven't been successful in that either.
I would like cell CM2 to look at cell G2 and get the value there. Here is where it gets interesting. I would like it to reference sheet "LookupTables" in column A.
Cell G2 will be a 4 digit number.
Cells in column A of sheet "LookupTables" will be formatted like this: 3 digit number-4 digit number-4 digit number, like this "001-0001-0001".
If cell G2 exists in column A of the LookupTables sheet, (but it needs to ignore the first 4 digits and the last 5 digits of that number) then it should return that value in cell CM2. I would like it to look through the entire column A of the LookupTables sheet and return all numbers that match the above criteria, and separate them with a comma.
So, if G2 is 0001 and column A of the LookupTables sheet contains several values including:
001-0001-0006 004-0001-0187 098-0001-0874 098-0002-4356 (it should ignore this since the middle numbers don't match the value of G2)
then CM2 should display: 001-0001-0006,004-0001-0187,089-0001-0874
Also, if there are no matches, then it should just return a blank cell.
In Column A, in each cell in rows 1-10, there is various text that may or may not include "ABC" and "DEFG" as the first four letters. In Column B, rows 1-10, there is numerical data. What I would like to do in Column C, rows 1-10, is place a formula that would return the contents of the respective cell in Column B, but only where the first three or four letters in the respective cell in column A is "ABC" or "DEFG".
So right now I have a spreadsheet that looks something like this:
A B C D
As you can see, the stock names are slightly different in columns A & C (CORP. vs CORP, CO vs CO., etc). I need a formula in column D that searches column A for the first word in column C, and then retrieves the contents of that cell. I want to do this because I will then use a vlookup in column E to get the ticker for the stock.
Right now I have: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(LEFT(C1,FIND(" ",C1)),A:A,1)),A:A,"")
This formula searches column A for EXXON, but does not return the contents of the cell. Instead, it returns the contents of a different cell in the column.
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 a data set with the weeks of the year as my column headers and a value of 1 (from a pivot table) in a distinct row value (removed for privacy) showing whether it existed in a given week based on pre defined criteria. What i need to do is ID the first (from the left) non blank cell in each row and then return that cells column header. I then need to do the same for the last (from the left) non blank cell in each row and then return that cells column header. On the attached I've put values in column N and O to show an example of what I need to return using a formula.
I have a worksheet which shows multiple tests and whether they are completed or not[code]Test 1 Person1 Test 2 Person2 Test 3...Person12. I want to search for a specific test, e.g. pH which could be in any of the "Test" columns but only return it if it is not completed. The "Person" columns will be blank if no one completed the test.
I set up the Advanced Filter criteria with all the appropriately labeled columns and for the Person columns, I put ="" but it is returning all rows which have pH in them whether they are completed or not. What should I be putting in the Person columns of the criteria to only return those rows which have the pH test but it is not completed. I attached an example of the criteria range and the filter window to help clarify (the full spreadsheet is huge)
I am using the "IF" formula to pull in data into a forms section. I then save the forms section as a CSV file.
When the IF statement returns the "false" value, it is looking to pull over a "blank" cell. When that happems, a "0" pulls over. I tried to put a "" in the blank cell, but while the output of the formulaa looks "Blank" when I convert the tab to CSV, the output is a quote mark ". I need the formula to display a real BLANK cell or something that acts like a blank cell
I'm trying to do several things. I have 6 columns (A:F) with column headers and 12 rows of data and not every cell has a number as its content. Some cells are blank. I have attached my file.
Using Row 2 as my example: 1.) I want to return the contents of the FIRST non-blank cell in the range (A2:F2) in cell I2. 2.) If I2 is not blank, then I want to return the column header (text) which corresponds to the resulting number content of cell I2. 3.) I want to return the contents of NEXT non-blank cell in A2:F2 in cell K2. 4.) If K2 is not blank, then return the column header (text) which corresponds to the resulting number of K2.
I will then repeat the 3rd & 4th scenarios in columns L thru S.
What Iím trying to do is place all non-blank data up in the first-foremost columns (H thru S) as I possibly can so I can use the data from these new columns (H thru S) as my merge fields in a Word document.
In sheet1, A1: =Sheet2!B12 which returns 0 (zero) though B12 of sheet2 is the result of =sum(B1:B11) i.e 660. But if in sheet1 A1=Sheet2!D12 or any other cell in sheet2 instead of B12, A1 gives correct result. That means cell A1 itself is not a problem. I checked format of B12 which is number format.
