    IFERROR(A2/A3),"" and conditional formatting

    Another quick question for everyone. I am trying to format cell A1 to be blank when data has not been entered in A2 or A3. I have to use the IFERROR function in A1 because this cell is used in an average elsewhere in the spreadsheet. Therefore, it cannot be a hidden error value or the average function will not operate properly. I have attached an example.

    Any suggestions?

    I am trying to format cell A1 to be blank
    Conditional formatting can not make any cell as blank - but you can make the font as white to disappear the cell's content.

    Thanks for the quick reply. You are correct. I am trying to make everything white, but it is showing up green.

    well for a start off, you have no format set for your 2nd rule (wont change anything though)
    2nd, I would change both the formula inteh cell and the formula in the CF from " " to 0, and then format text as white
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools

    Hi picassov,

    If cell value is greater than 0.9, then cell background color should turn green ... is this you want ?
    If not, then try explaining in the same simple line as I explained above. thanks.
