Duration formula Issue

Hi :)

I am using this formula to calculate the days between when an action was Requested and when it was Completed, with an extra bit on the end to add the word "days" to the count result.

=[Completed]@row - [Requested]@row + " days"

My issue is; when the Completed cell has no date I still get the word "days" when ideally it would remain blank/empty. I've tried a number if IF, ERROR formulas but can't get anything to work.

Essentially: If the Completed cell is empty: stay empty, but if the Completed cell has a date, make the above calculation.

Would appreciate any ideas you may have. Thank you.
