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
Hi, hope someone can help me. I don't use Excel much, but I'm creating a

Anyway, what I want to do is to make the cells stand out for those that
still owe money, either because a check is forthcoming or because they

I want the credit card orders to show up with a different color (eg YELLOW)

I have a column which calculated a date based on 3 working days from a date
input into a diff column. What I want to do I have the calculated date
appear bold if that date has passed based on the current date.
For example if I input 01/08/11 the next column calculates 04/08/11 (3
working days). I want the caluclated date to appear bold when I open the
spreadsheet on the 05/08/11 ro show the calculated date has passed.
I can use conditional formatting but can't get the syntax right

I have a range of cells spanning multiple columns and rows. I would
like, in my fantasy, to just hightlight all of them and say "multiply
by x" where x is an integer. Now, I know I can't do that because my
microphone doesn't work, so, other then a macro, is there a way to do
In an unused cell enter the numnber that you want to multiply by - it can be
an integer or a floating point number - then highlight the range to you want
to mutiply and then right-click and select Paste Special > Multiply > Ok
Don't forget to say "Multipy by x"...Query condition by date range
I'm trying to create a query to base a report from. I need it to return

would I write the criteria? I have part of it ready - [Please enter starting

We are trying to get a cell in the header of a sheet. Can this be done?

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.

For Each Cell In Target
If Cell.Address = "$D$9" Then

If May is null and either Jun or Apr are null then I would not count them.

I have 2 CF conditions associated with a cell (C14), one of which is:
Formula is =OR($C$4="Fred SOMEBODY",C14<>"10:30:00")
What happens when this is true isn't important/relevant.
The value in the cell appears as 10:30 (formatted as custom/hh:mm) but the
value in the 'formula window' is actually 10:30:00.
This type of condition works fine when the cell contains a simple number (or
text) but I can't get it to work for either times or dates.
I have tried it with and without the inverted commas (around the time value)
and have tried using 10:30 ...using named cells across worksheets

You defined the names so that the names included the worksheet name, too?
Then you can just use them by making sure you include the complete name:

How can you add a blank line or bottom margin in a cell to seperate the rows
for printing? In Word it is called a cell margin.
You can increase the rowheight by selecting a cell in that row and then:
and making it larger.
You could also add an alt-enter as the last character in that cell.
(might be messy if you're working with numeric values, though)
