i tried to lock my sheet while still allowing the user to enter rows
so i expanded my table to add another 1000 rows

all the formulas allowed an ifna and returned a blank cell instead
the concatenated formula =(CONCATENATE(TEXT(C3,"mm/dd/yyyy"),B3,E3,F3,K3)) returns 1/00/1900
the column with the date returns an isblank as true
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.
