Excel function: "Not Isblank" with "Or" and if date is

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I need a Formula that notify me if one of two cells is empty (or both of them) while if more than 30 days have passed . I used it before but with just one empty cell and it works perfectly:

=IF(NOT(ISBLANK(H4));"";IF(TODAY()>=C4+30;"Action";""))

How can I make it with 2 empty cells?

Thank you all in advance

I solved it, Thanks for everybody’s help. I wanted to update it to check if one cell is blank and another one is NOT blank while more than 30 days have passed. Here is the Formula:
=IF(OR(NOT(ISBLANK(H4));ISBLANK(E4));””;IF(TODAY()>=C4+30;”Action”;””))

How to&Answers:

I can’t really test this due to how Excel localizes its function names (which is so stupid…), but you should be able to combine multiple booleans with AND or OR, depending on which behavior you want.

If you want to check if two cells are empty you can use AND(ISBLANK(H4), ISBLANK(H5)) as the condition; if you want to check if both are not empty, you put all that in another NOT: NOT(AND(ISBLANK(H4), ISBLANK(H5)). Similarly, if you want to check if at least one of the cells is empty, you can use OR: OR(ISBLANK(H4), ISBLANK(H5)). And if you want to check if none of the cells is empty, you can again again put that in an AND.

Answer:

You can test for both G4 and H4 being filled with COUNTA, which counts the cells that have any content, and combine that with your date check in an AND statement:

=IF(AND(COUNTA(G4:H4)<2;TODAY()>=C4+30);"Action";"")
