    Getting an equation to apply to cells only with info in

    Do you know if there is anyway I can get an equation to only apply to cells with information in?....eg. I have two collums, one with 'disposal dates' in and the other with 'extended disposal dates'. I would like to get the difference between them (Extended disposal dates- disposal dates) however not all of them have an extended disposal date, therefore some cells display as '#VALUE!' because its calculating the disposal date-blank cell.... How can i get round this?

    Column A Disposal Date
    Column B Extended disposal date

    in C1
    =IF(AND(A1<>"",B1<>""),B1-A1,"")
    and copy down the column

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.

    Test it

    =IF(OR(Extended_disposal_dates="",disposal_dates=""),"",Extended_disposal_dates- disposal_dates)

    =IFERROR((Extended disposal dates- disposal dates),"")

    OR

    =IFERROR((Extended disposal dates- disposal dates),0)
