i have a "IF" statement that if satisfied will enter in today's date and time. problem is that the time is volatile and keeps getting updated whenever there is a change to the spreadsheet anywhere. how do i format the time so that it doesn't continuously update?

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

NOW() is volatile.

BTW, you should use "" to return nothing, not space.

You will need VBA for this, what range do you want this to happen on, what is the condition?
