Good Morning all

I have written a formula to identitify blank cells in a range. Based on an ID in a seperate column i would like to tell my formula that these cellare intentionally left blank

Can i use some kind of look up formula to rule out the cells that i intentiionaly want to leave blank. So in the esample below ID 1 and 2 should be excluded from the formula, ID 3-5 should show as not blank and 6-7 should be blank

I hope that makes sense.

Best wishes all

Robert

You could simply add something like ISNA(MATCH(ID,List of ID's,0)) into your existing formula.

Depending on how you have written your formula you may need to change ISNA to ISNUMBER.
