Select your range of cells in column A. Edit / Go to / Special / Blanks.
Type = and then press up arrow. Then hit Shift Enter.
If you are happy with this result, select the range again and Edit / Copy
then Edit / Paste Special / Values to fix the values in place.

When a Lead comes in, there are times in which the Lead is already a current

to create it as a Contact underneath the already existing Account.
When you go to convert the Lead, this option is not available. I don't want
to bring them in as an opportunity. What are our options? It is surprising
that this functionality is not available, but I'm getting used to it. :)

My major problem with array formulas (and the much more user friendly

lot as they are computation demanding and are recalculated every time a cell
is changed anywhere in the workbook. I am probably the only person still

Change your formula to use NA() if the cell is empty. For example:
