I have a series of cells with a vlookup formula which either returns a date (if the lookup table has a date) or a blank. This works fine. I am trying to pick up the value of that cell and return a code letter in another cell which will either be "Y" or "N" if the cell is blank or has a date in it. The cell is formatted as a standard date field.
I have tried ISBLANK, looked at the LEN of the cell but am having problems solving this issue. Any help gratefully received.
Thanks Haytham, but I am afraid it does not work. Although the cell appears to be blank, If I ask for the LEN(cell ref) I get "01/01/1900". I have tried using that in the formula, but that does not work either.
The lookup formula works perfectly to either display a date or a blank cell, but I need to identify if it is displaying a date then another cell gets to show a code letter.
