Excel Formula

Hi, i am looking for a formula for the attached spreadsheet in column S that will only add columns K through Q IF there is something in column Q

Perhaps it would be easier to only total column R IF there is something in column Q......

basically I don't want any average figure until column Q/month 6 has an entry in it.

I just can't work it out!!!

Any help would be great, thank you

Re: Excel Formula

This formula will keep Cell S4 blank until something is in Q4.

=IF(Q4<>"", R4/7,"")

You'll probably want to do something similar in columns T through V, just to keep them blank until S has something in it.

I've generally found in my own sheets, that the  <>"" is a good way to say "not blank"    It could also be turned around, =IF(Q4="","", R4/7), which is then saying IF Q4 is blank, keep S4 blank; otherwise, divide R7 by 7.

Perhaps you mean

``=SUM(K4:Q4)*(Q4<>"")``

in R4
