Summary: Determine whether or not a particular cell contains any information.
In Microsoft Excel 2003, you can use the =countblank function to determine how many cells in a particular range are blank.
What if you only want to determine whether or not a particular cell contains any information?
CELL is the cell that you wish to check.
For example, in this spreadsheet, cell A1 will contain a user-inputted US dollar figure. Cell A3 converts the value to quarters, or displays "No Dollar Amount Provided" if no values were inputted into cell A1.
1 user input
3 =IF(ISBLANK(A1),"No Dollar Amount Provided",A1*4 & " Quarters")
