Hi, I have 2 similar question.
I'm using a formula that I got from a previously made excel sheet. The formula does what I need it to do and looks like this:
=INT((D10-10)/2)
The problem is, if I don't enter a number in the cell D10, all the cells with this formula show -5.
If I don't want data entered into D10 yet, I'd like all the cells with that formula to be blank until I actually enter a number in D10.
I think it has to do with using an IF statement followed with ""? Am I on the right track?
Also, if I have other formulas like =SUM(AP3:AQ6), but the cells it refers to are blank, how can I make the cell with the formula also be blank rather than show a 0?
I know I can turn off the "Show a zero in cells that have zero value" option, but I was wondering how to do it with the formula instead.
Thanks!

Nope, no negative numbers will ever be entered. So I think shemayisroal's formula is just what I needed. Thanks guys!
I now have an idea and I'm wondering if it's even possible to do with a formula.
I currently have cell K20 with this formula:
=SUM(Y20,AA20,AC20,AE20,AG20)
The thing is, I don't want it to add up those cells unless I have a number entered in cell Y20. So, if I have numbers in the other cells, but not in cell Y20, then I would like K20 to be left blank. But if I enter a number in cell Y20, then I would like K20 to go ahead and add up all of those cells.
Is that possible?

Use the same technique:
=IF(COUNT(Y20),SUM(Y20,AA20,AC20,AE20,AG20),"")
I've used my own cell refs, but this works
Sheet1
G H I J K L 20 10 15 25 25
Spreadsheet Formulas
Cell Formula L20 =IF(G20="","",SUM(H20,I20,J20,K20))
