I have a multi-sheet file. Sheet 1 is Roster of employees. Sheet 2 is Master Sheet of all staff certifications. Sheets 3-10 is individual certifications.
Sheet 1, D13:D52 is list of employees using direct input. Sheets 2-10 Column D is linked to Roster sheet via formula "="ROSTER!D13", etc.
Column F on sheets 2-10 is Renewal Dates of certifications.
Column G (hidden) is simple forumua "=TODAY()
Column H, 13-52 has formula "=IF(-(G9-F9)=0,"",-(G9-F9))"
Conditional Formatting on Column H, 13-52
If <0, Red (Certification Outdated)
If 1-180, Yellow
If >180 Green

All formulas work ok UNLESS I remove a roster name from Sheet 1. If an entry is removed from Sheet 1, D13:D52, Sheets 2-10 displays a "O" in columns D, E and calculations are still performed in Column H, including Conditional Formatting.

How can I link Column D on sheets 2-10 to make it skips blank entries on Sheet 1 "Roster" to avoid the messiness of colored cells where no entry exists. Is there an IGNORE/BLANK function that will accomplish this?

TIA

Hi and welcome to the board!

Wouldn't it work if you linked your roster list from Sheet1 to Sheet2, Column D, with the same IF-formula you're already using, like:
Code:
=IF(Roster!D13="","",Roster!D13)
On my sheet it leaves the linked cell in column D blank instead of displaying 0.
