Using variable names for cells
I seem to remember a technique where I could assign a variable name to
the contents of a cell so that whenever I wanted to use the contents,
all I had to do was call up the variable name. Unfortunately I cannot
find the way to set up the process. Any suggestsions or ideas would be
appreciated. Thanks and a Happy New Year.

I am trying to write an average formula that takes into account the blank
I had only cells A2, A4, A6 filled out, but when I do =average(A1:A6), it is
not treating the blanks as zeros so the answer is much higher than it should
Should I do a logic formula within the cells?
If you know the range, you could do the division yourself:
But this would include other non-numeric cells in the count of cells (6), too.

I have a problem summing cells in a pivot table. When I double-click on a

I have a long list of formulas in column "E".
I need to know at a glance whether any value in this column is inequal to

Summing the column is no good because there could be offsetting values (e.g.
+5 + -5 = 0).

every formula in the column evaluates to zero or not (rounded to 2 decimals).

I have linked a cell from another sheet. If the original cell is blank, 0

To handle this, I conditionally formatted the linked cell, so if it equals
zero, the font colour is the same as the background colour of the cell so you
can't see the zero
But the zero still prints even though it is not showing prior to printing

of his comments.

Maybe you have a space before the = (Excel think it is text now)
