Need to return "Blank" cell but NOT NA()
For my chart, I need to return the equivalent of a
truly "blank" cell. The NA() function causes the graph to
interpolate the missing point, whereas a blank cell causes
the graph to plot nothing. I need to plot nothing.
I'm using layered lines, one dashed and one solid, so that
I can highlight interpolated points with a dashed style.
Currently, I use a white line to mask the solid line that
goes to "0" when the driving formula returns "" for the
solid line. This works in 90% of situations, but there
are some instances that are too complex (too man...How to change cell color based on content

We are trying to get a cell in the header of a sheet. Can this be done?
Example would be in our sheet in D9 is TFF. We want whatever is in D9 to go
in the header. I'm not sure this makes sense.
You could do this with a macro linked to the worksheet_change event.
Insert the following code into the macro sheet for the sheet with the
cell if interest.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
For Each Cell In Target
If Cell.Address = "$D$9" Then
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterHeader = Cell.Value
