Hi Everyone, I am a bit of a self-taut amateur and have been using Excel to run a league of eight individual DART players. Everything has been going quite well.....But I have now hit a problem I just can’t seem to find an answer for, so would really appreciate it if someone could tell me if what I want to do is actually possible?

I am taking information off weekly result sheets of the match scores. Each match is 8 legs so a draw will be a 4-4 score line. The zeros in G10 and H10 is causing other formulas to give won draw lost returns before required so I need these cells to be BLANK.

Can I achieve this with conditional formatting? Or can I somehow rewrite the line in G10 to keep the cells BLANK until the actual match score is entered in my weekly sheets? Pulling my hair out trying to work out something which I suspect is quite simple to you guys out there. Any help, ideas or a solution would be greatly appreciated.

I have entered results from week 1and 2 which then brings the other formulas on this Players sheet into play.

The formula I have put in F10 -F21 is........ =IF(G12=H12,"Draw",IF(G12>H12,"Won","Lost")) I10 - I23 is...... =IF(ISBLANK(G10),0,IF(F10="Won",2,IF(F10="Draw",1,IF(F10="Lost",0,""))))

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

L44 is the cell that records the 3 games Dave wins in his Week 1 match that sheet contains the 4 matches played each week by all the eight players.
when the result is recorded in that sheet all the match stats are sent to the Players Match Stats Record sheets. the sheet im having probs getting the BLANKS in !

The cell numbers are different each week because of the playing order on any given week. THERE IS A SEPERAT SHEET that I record each weeks matches on from W-1 to W-14

I have just taken a screenshot of the workbook to give you an idea how I have tried to set it up.

Ok if you use
Excel Formula:
=IF(COUNTIF(L47:S47,"")=8,"",COUNTIF(L47:S47,"w"))
you can then use
Excel Formula:
=IF('W-1'!L44="","",'W-1'!L44)
