## Summing Cells That Contain IF Statement To Leave Cell Blank If Zero

## Leave Other Cells Blank If No Data In Cell

May 9, 2009

I'm using a formula that I got from a previously made excel sheet. The formula does what I need it to do and looks like this: =INT((D10-10)/2)

The problem is, if I don't enter a number in the cell D10, all the cells with this formula show -5.

If I don't want data entered into D10 yet, I'd like all the cells with that formula to be blank until I actually enter a number in D10.

I think it has to do with using an IF statement followed with ""? Am I on the right track?

Also, if I have other formulas like =SUM(AP3:AQ6), but the cells it refers to are blank, how can I make the cell with the formula also be blank rather than show a 0?

I know I can turn off the "Show a zero in cells that have zero value" option, but I was wondering how to do it with the formula instead.

## Count Number Of Cells In Column That Contain Specific Value But Leave Blank If None?

Mar 6, 2014

I have a spreadsheet that contains given answers to a multiple choice test. I want to count the number of times each possible answer has been chosen at the bottom of the column. I have tried to use COUNTIF and that works fine to give me the number times each answer has been chosen but there is just one annoying thing. If the given answer hasn't been chosed by anyone, a "0" is automatically entered into the cell. This tends to really clutter up the spreadsheet and I would prefer for the cell to be left blank if the answer hasn't been chosen by anyone.

The closest I can come up with is: {=IF(D1:D10="","",COUNTIF(D1:D10,"A"))} but unless the answer "A" is chosed in D1, the cell remains blank.

If "A" is chosed in D1, then the formula works and counts all the rest of the cells that have "A" as an answer.

## Formula To Leave A Cell Blank

Aug 25, 2009

## If Tab Exists Put Cell, If Not, Leave Blank

Feb 26, 2007

Excel Version: 2000

Workbook has the possiblities of 366 tabs at the bottom, but for a normal calendar year will only have 26.

The tab name is the ending date of the pay period without the year. So for Feb 25, 2007 the tab would be named 0225

On a yearly calculations page I am simply trying to say IF TAB 0225 exists then cell equals '0225'!A2 otherwise the cell should be blank.

I tried this, but gets a reference failure instead of putting nothing...

=IF('0102'!A2=0,"",'0102'!A2)

In this example the possible tab name would be 0102. If the tab exists, everything works fine, but since in this case it doesn't, I get a reference failure. #REF!

I NEED the result to be empty if the tab doesn't exist.

Any idea would be helpful. I'd rather not have 366 tabs when only 26 are needed for any calendar year.

## How To Leave Cells Blank Until Data Is In Source Cells

I am making a spreadsheet for use by my customers. Is there a way to leave cells that have formulas' in blank until the cells that make up the formula have entries in?

## Add Time (minutes) Or Leave Cell Blank

Jun 18, 2014

cell A1 has the time (09:00), cell A2 has the minutes (60), cell A3 is the sum of A1+A2.

Im using this formula =A1+TIME(0,A2,0) - which is fine, except A1 is sometimes blank, so therefore I would like A3 to be blank.

I thought I could use this: =IF(A1,"","",(A1+TIME(0,A2,0)) But it doesn't work.

## Leave Cell Blank From Formula Until Data Is Posted

May 22, 2007

I'm trying to create a worksheet to automatically make a football league table update once results are entered.

However before a game is played and the cells are left blank, the formula detects this as a "draw" and awards a point. how to prevent the formula operating until a result is entered?

## SUMIFS - If No Criteria Match Leave Cell Blank Else Return Value

Nov 5, 2011

I'm trying to set up my formula so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

(I recommend skipping the below text and just opening the attached spreadsheet, instructions/what I'm looking for and trying to achieve and well laid out requirements and examples are in the spreadsheet and much more thoroughly explained then I can do below)

I'm setting up a table that grabs data from columns in a raw data spreadsheet.

For the purpose of the table I'm making, the formula needs to match up both the House, and the year/month from the raw data sheet, then if the two match and are side by side, return the value to the right either in the Plan Field or the actuals field depending on which field in the table the formula is in. If there is no entry or matching criteria for both the house and Month then it should leave the cell blank, not show a 0

So I have a SUMIFS formula that I'm trying to set up so that if there is no criteria match it leaves the cell blank.

So =SUMIFS(sum range, criteria& range, criteria&range), if no matching criteria can be found, leave cell blank, else if matching criteria found then return value from the sumrange.

This is the exact formula I am using:

=SUMIFS(INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$B9, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$A\$8, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), Table!\$A\$9, INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$B\$8, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), TEXT(Table!C\$8, "yyyymm"))

Yeah kind of hard to follow, so attached is a very detailed and well laid out spreadsheet showing the example of what the formula is, how it's working/what it's returning and an example of what i want it to return/look like, so please check out the spreadsheet, it explains it a million times better.

Essentially though i want the formula set up so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

## Set Date In Table Cell To Be Date In Another Cell Plus 30 But Leave Blank If Other Cell Is Blank

Nov 19, 2013

I have made a table which contains 2 date columns, Both formatted as date (dd-mmm-yy), the second column is calculated as the first column, + 30, The dates work out fine when adding to a date in the first columns, but from a blank cell it displays 30-Jan-00.

e.g
Started
Finishes

12-Nov-13
12-Dec-13

30-Jan-00

09-Nov-13
09-Dec-13

11-Nov-13
11-Dec-13

Rather than delete the rows with the blanks in the Started column, is there a formula that I can use so that the cells in the "Finishes" column is left blank when the "Started" cells are blank?

The current formula for cells in the "Finished" column is:

=[@Started]+30

## Excel 2003 :: Write Formula That Will Leave Cell Blank If Nothing Is Entered?

## Copy Cell Data To Other Worksheet Cell - Leave Blank If Not Currently Filled

Jul 8, 2014

I am wanting to have certain cells of data from one worksheet appear on another worksheet once the cells on the first sheet have data entered in them.

I find that I can do a simple formula to copy the cell but I want the cell to remain blank until data is added in the first sheet (it will be a mix of text and numerical entries).

## 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

=(SUM(E34-E6)-(SUM((E12)+E14)-(SUM((E21)+E22)-(SUM(E28)+E29))))

## Ignoring Blank Cells In IF Statement

Aug 10, 2009

I've got four columns of data. The first column contains pricing for a bunch of products from our company. The other three columns contain pricing for three other competitors. So for example:

Product | Our Price | Comp1 Price | Comp2 Price | Comp3 Price
Gloves | \$4.59 | \$5.00 |\$6.00 | \$3.56
Hats | \$5.00 | | | \$4.59

In column G right after Comp3 Price I have an IF statement that says if Comp1 Price is less than Comp2 Price, Comp3 Price, and Our Price, to print "Comp3" in that cell. If it is not less than the comparable data, then check Comp2 Price then Comp3 price in the same fashion. If Comp1, Comp2, or Comp3 is not less than Our Price then print "My Company Name." This will allow me to see who has the lowest price for that product and also tell me if that lowest price is lower than our price.

My problem is that I can't get it to work out so Excel ignores blank cells. So for example, Comp3 has the lowest price amongst our competitors for hats and is also lower than ours. But when I check for Comp3 price being lower than Comp1 and Comp2, it comes back as negative because Excel sees those cells as zeroes even though they're blank. My formula is:

=IF(AND(C2<D2,C2<E2,C2<B2),"COMP1",IF(AND(D2<E2,D2<C2,D2<B2),"COMP2",IF(AND(E2<C2,E2<D2,E2<B2),"COMP 3","MYCOMPANY")))

This would do exactly what I need Excel to do if it would ignore the blank cells. The problem is that Comp3 has pricing for hats because they offer hats, but comp1 and Comp2 don't offer hats at all, so naturally Comp3 has the lowest price; however, according to Excel Comp1 and Comp2 have the lowest price because the cells are blank and counted as zeroes.

So, does anyone know how to work this out so Comp3 will be counted as the lowest price for hats, ignoring the blank cells of Comp1 and Comp2?

## 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".
