I have tried several different formulas to try and get rid of negative numbers and numbers over 365

User

What I would like is to be able to show all negatives and all numbers over 365 as blank cells

L2 is blank actually.

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 05:30

That is the existing formula.

User

yes, there will be blank cells and that is what is causing part of the issue, but those cells must be blank until the work is actually done.

Excelchat Expert

Ok. So, the end result also shall be blank when either is blank?

User
14/08/2018 - 05:32

end result should be blank if result is <0 or >365

Excelchat Expert
14/08/2018 - 05:32

Ok.

Excelchat Expert
