Formula help: =COUNTBLANK(offset(Inglewood!C$2,,MATCH(D3,Inglewood!$C$1:$N$1,0)-1,counta(Inglewood!$A:$A)-1)) This is helping me have conditional formatting based on empty cells from another tab. I want to change the range of data that is being seen. (i.e. instead of C2:C47 I want it to be C11:C47)

So in the School Summary tab - Column E is the formula
User 04/09/2018 - 09:16
So for Inglewood, I just want the items from Row 11 to Row 47 to be considered instead of the entire column
Excelchat Expert 04/09/2018 - 09:18
Following through the data...

Excelchat Expert 04/09/2018 - 09:21
What exactly do you want the formula to accomplish?
User 04/09/2018 - 09:21
I want it to collect the number of empty cells in the 'district' tab (i.e. Inglewood, LAUSD, Lawndale, etc.) for each individual school from C11:C47
User 04/09/2018 - 09:22
It's currently pulling C2:C47
Excelchat Expert 04/09/2018 - 09:27
I have changed the range.
Excelchat Expert 04/09/2018 - 09:27
User 04/09/2018 - 09:29
Yeah I see that, but when I test it (tab Inglewood) it's not accurate
Excelchat Expert 04/09/2018 - 09:29
Okay. Let me check the formula.
User 04/09/2018 - 09:29
Celll 11 through 47 says TEST in it with blanks at the top but it's still showing as 4 empty cells
Excelchat Expert 04/09/2018 - 09:33

Excelchat Expert 04/09/2018 - 09:33
