    Remove characters from cells if the have non data and characters as per attached sheet

    Greetings

    I have a sheet which contains racedata that has been scrapped for me.

    I am able to copy the information from the racadata worksheet into different sheets within my workbook

    I am experiencing a problem in certain events where the number of runners is than that the spaces on the template

    How can I write a formula or macro that will clear the ### character and or the zeros when the the data in column C is blank or empty. It must however keep the formula because in future events the column C can be filled in with names

    Thanx for all help received

    You've not included a Formula on the Worksheet, but it might be possible to just wrap it in IFERROR to stop the N/A

    =IFERROR([Your formula],"")

    Does that work for you?

    May be this
    In Q2 then copied down

    =IF(C2="","", YourFormula)
    Pl note
    Array formula should be confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter keys together.
    If answere is satisfactory press * to add reputation.

    As mentioned in post#2 simply wrap the formula in IfError like

    Re: Remove characters from cells if the have non data and characters as per attached sheet

    Hi

    Thank you so much for the solution. Its working, I made a few changes to my data and it worked

    I have a question

    Currently I am cutting and pasting data from one file and pasting it into the template

    Can this process be automated every time I get a new file

    The template has fixed spaces to which I paste the data. The identifiers in both files will be race and number

    Thank you in anticipation

    You probably can, but that's a completely different thing to this.

    Open another question and post examples of both your original sheet and the template sheet with what you'd like to happen.
