I have data pulled from one spreadsheet to another. So when I am pulling a date from one to another if the date is not entered on the first copy it's giving me a Saturday, January 00, 1900. How can I keep it blank.

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

assume your formula is

=Sheet1!A1

you could do this

=if(Sheet1!A1="","",Sheet1!A1)

Hi,

Change your reference to =IF(ISBLANK(reference),"",reference)

Where reference is the workbook/sheet/cell reference that should contain the date.

Cheers,
Jon
