    if cell contains text then return that text if blank return value of another cell

    Morning,

    I'm sure someones already solved this but i cant find the answer this morning.

    I'm looking to check a cell (H2) and if it has a value in it to display that value but if its blank then to display the value of cell (F2)

    Can someone help me with the syntax, i'm sure its an IFError type formula but i'm not sure.

    Thanks.

    Try this:

    =IF(H2<>"",H2,F2)
