    My formula result shows in blank cells

    Hello,

    I currently have a table to keep on top of due dates for letters etc. In column I I have a number of dates, which are all inputted by the user.

    Column R just calculates the number of days between that date and today.

    I then have a Formula in Column Q:

    =IF(R2>7,"Letter to be drafted","")

    This is copied down 200 rows so that this function is automated when dates are entered. However, where there is no date in Column I the values in Column Q all show "Letter to be drafted" but I want this to be blank.

    How can I get that formula to ignore it if I2 is blank?

    Many thanks

    How about this?

    =IF(I2="","",R2>7,"Letter to be drafted",""))
