Hi,

I have a the following formula in a spreadsheet =IF(G39="","",(TODAY()-G39)) but the "" result is causing issues for me in a formula in another cell where if G39>120 then an X should be populated. Although G39 is blank the other cell is still populating as if G39>120. Thanks in advance for any help.

Spell Check in Excel
Press F7 to start spell check in Excel. Be careful, by default, Excel does not check Capitalized Werds (whoops)
Can you post the other formula? In what cell do you have "=IF(G39="","",(TODAY()-G39))"?

What's the formula in the other cell?

Can you post the other formula? In what cell do you have "=IF(G39="","",(TODAY()-G39))"?

The other formula is:
=IF(AND(\$K39="",\$I39>=120),"x",IF(\$K39>=120),"x",""))

The first formula is in cell I39.

K39 has this formula: =IF(J39="","",(TODAY()-J39))

Thank you!

Try this:

=IF(AND(\$K39="",--(0&\$I39)>=120),"x",IF(--(0&\$K39)>=120,"x",""))
