I usually find it convenient to use "" in formulas such as the following:

=IF(B12>0,B12/C4,"")

The problem of course is that an error will be returned if the cell left

blank with "" is used in subsequent calculations. Is there an alternative to

using zero instead of "" that still makes it obvious that the cell is

intentionally left unpopulated but that does not result in #VALUE# errors?

Can some one please help me to convert (calculated) zero to blank cell in a column? The calculated means zero is not typed in but is calculated from other cells by using formula.

Due to this calculated zero, most of the replies from all experts does not seem to be working. It was my fault as i did not make it clear in the beginning.

I have attached the sample spreadsheet.

Appreciate your help.

thanks.

Note to experts - Please try to reply again. Thank you.

I'm trying to run down through a very long/variable Column Y and add a SUM formula of the cells in Columns J:X to all blank cells in which the row also has an account number in Column A. (I've attached a truncated example of the spreadsheet). Basically, if there is a blank spot in the totals column that also has an account in column A, I need to sum a bunch of the values in between.

Here's a code I've written so far. I tried to add an active cell formula to this to allow the macro to work on any column but had even worse results. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

VB:Thank you,FillEmpty() Dim rCell, rColumn As Range Dim lLastRow As Long lLastRow = Range("Y65536").End(xlUp).Offset(0, 0).Row Set rColumn = Range("Y1:Y" & lLastRow) For Each rCell In rColumn If IsEmpty(rCell) Then If rCell.Offset(0, -25).Value Empty Then rCell.Formula = "=SUM(J:X,rCell.row)" Else End If Else End If Next rCell End SubIf you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

cells.

So if my formulas is

=A1+SUM(B2:B30)/Average(C1:C30)+Opcost

I want to know if either A1 is blank, any of the array items in the SUM or

Average are blank, if named cell Opcost is blank etc

Is there a way to evaluate the formula propertly of the cell object to test

for blanks? Am I wandering into Regular Expression territory with this one?

Or can I do it with VBA?

Thanks

Purpose: a drop-down box with no blanks between selections

Detail: I am trying to create an uninterrupted (no blank cells) list based on a list with intermittent blank cells.

Question: What formula (no VBA please) could I use to grab in sequence, data, without grabbing the blank cells?

Example:

(1) List (this list will dynamically change based on previous selections)

Apples

Oranges

Bananas

Cherries

Strawberries

Honey Dew

(2) I want it to read:

Apples

Oranges

Bananas

Cherries

Strawberries

Honey Dew

So that I can link this list to a drop-down for a seamless list.

Hope this helps - let me know if you need more details! Thanks!

The formula I am using is as follows:

{=VAR(AVERAGE(IF(A1:A100=2,B1:B100,"")),......}

This formula goes on using 2 to 11 in the logic test statement and takes the variance. But, if one of the cells is blank in the B column, an error occurs in the IF statement evaluation, leading to an error as the final answer.

This workbook will be used by others, and there is no way to predetermine which cells will be blank when data is pasted into the worksheet.

Thanks.

I can have it do an activecell (A1) currentregion selection, but I am not sure how to tell VBA to seach just the highlighted region for a blank cell after that.

Can anyone help me, please?

arrow down again to select the next cell.

If I record this it suggests I am selecting specific cells.

My issue with that is that column A will have a different number of rows

occupied by text and whatnot.

Is there a command or something that would select the first blank cell in

column A?

Thank you in advance. You guys are always willing to give an answer.

G

{=SUM(IF((Sev=1)*(Comp=1),1,0))}

Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!!!!

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?

A. There will be an autofilter active so it needs to know to go the first blank cell not the first blank visible cell (sense?)

B. This will be in a loop so if you set a variable like

I'm having major problems with my brain functions this morning so any help is appreciated.

I am trying to write a macro code that sorts certain rows based on if those rows have blank cells in column G. I have figured out the code to the point where it selects the rows where column G is blank, but then when I want it to sort these rows, it references a set cell. The problem with this is that I want to be able to reuse the macro without having to update it. The rows with blank cells in column G change on a weekly basis (one week it might be row 12 where the blanks start, the next week it might be row 18 where the blanks start).

Is it possible to have the sorting not reference a set cell?

Thanks in advance.

I've tried countless time to try and solve my problem, however I'm finally admitting defeat. Can someone please take a look at my problem and offer advice on how to solve this.

Basically I have data in column B (for example of this) and i want to copy each cell to the next blank cell below in column A.

So far everything I've tried has led me to only being able to copy to a preset offset value.

I've been trying to select each cell individually (B2), then offset it to the previous column, if that's not blank, then try the next row, until there's a blank, then copy, and go to the next cell (B3) and so on.

The attached show a before and after of what I'm trying to achieve.

I'm also looking to move further data (6 connecting columns) in the same way. Can you also please specify any slight changes I may need to implement other than the range.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to write a macro that would copy formula in B2 and then copy it down row B until it finds that a cell in row A is blank. This report changes all the time so I never know how much data is in row A. So I want the macro to stop copying the formula down row B when it finds a blank cell in Row A.

I tried the Do Until but it did not do anything unless I had something wrong. I recorded the intial copy B2 to B3 to see what it wrote. I tried an if statement also.

Any help would be apprieciated. I have Excel 2003.

I would like to copy the results of a calculation in a macro into the first

blank cell in column C. Note that this is NOT the cell below the ast row of

the colum.

There are more various blank and non-blanks below the first blank in column C.

How do I select the first blanc cell in Column C then?

The part of the macro below works perfectly except for the fact that it does

not copy the value in the first blanc cell but in the last cell. Adding a

line + 1 did not work until now.

Your help is really appreciated, Many thanks upfront.

If COMPANY = "SA" Or COMPANY = "sa" Then

' Select the SA 2006_2007 sheet for input

Sheets("2006_2007 BE Invoices Out").Select

Range("C1").Select

'Instruction below Brings me to the last non-blank cell, but need the

line below !!!

Range(Selection.Address).End(xlDown).Select

Sheets("Parameters").Select

Range("E16").Select

Selection.Copy

Sheets("2006_2007 BE Invoices Out").Select

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone,

SkipBlanks _

:=False, Transpose:=False

Is the only way to select the first non blank cell in a range to use an

if statement.

e.g If D1 is the first cell in range A1 to F1 with info I want to

return 1 for A to for B and so on. So D1 would return 4
