    # of days a cell has been blank from last date until now

    Hi All,

    Looking for formula or code that cell K4 will look at cell I4 and if their is a date in I4 do nothing, if I4 is blank look in cell E4 (which should have a date in it), then calculate the number of networkdays between cell E4 and the current date (today) the data is entered.

    Their will be many rows with data and each row has multiple places where their could be blank cells. Cells in yellow are where I was planning to put the formula.

    Not sure if code would be a better way to go about this.

    See attached file.

    A blank cell that should have a date in it means someone is working on a task but has not finished, when finished they will Initial and date it and move it on.
    Trying to figure out how many days it has been sitting being worked on from a blank cell that should have a date, to the previous date in that same row.

    Hope this is not too confusing.

    Thanks for any help, Bikeman

    Re: # of days a cell has been blank from last date until now

    Thanks very much for the formula, its works for the most part but I did not think about the blank cells down stream.
    If I have one blank cell in the row the formula work fine (see rows 6, 7 & 8) but if their are additional blank cells in the same row to the right, the formula enters a large number (see cells in red).
    Is there a way to keep the additional blank cells to the right that are in the same row "blank". For example row 8 cell O8 resulted in # 32 which is correct but cells S8, W8, AA8, AE8 AI8, AM8, AQ8 and AU8 would remain blank without the large number.

    Hope this is not a pain.

    Thanks for the help, Bikeman
