Can you have a formula that if a cell is blank it will copy a value from another cell

i.e. if C:4 has no date copy A:4 to A:100

Sorry mate, not entirely sure what you're after.

If you change the "" in the formula I wrote to C4 it will mean:

if cell C4 is blank, copy the value in A4 into cell A100, otherwise (i.e. cell C4 is NOT blank) copy C4's value into cell A100

in that case, in cell A100:

=if(not(isblank(C4)),A4,"'))

you can change the "' to something else if you like
