If cell is blank put N/A


I have created the below formula to check the contents of a cell and lump it together neatly. However, if the cell is blank, I would like it to return a result of N/A. How do I go about that? Not all cell's will have data and I don't want the summary to be confusing if it's just left blank.

="ABC:" + ABC@row + CHAR(10) + "CDE: " + CDE@row + CHAR(10) + "FGH: " + FGH@row + CHAR(10) + "IJK: " + IJK@row)


CDE: returns the cell data

FGH: returns the cell data

IJK: returns the cell data

    Hi @Tbrown

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    "ABC:" + IF(ABC@row <> "", ABC@row, "N/A") + CHAR(10) + 
    "CDE: " + IF(CDE@row <> "", CDE@row, "N/A") + CHAR(10) + 
    "FGH: " + IF(FGH@row <> "", FGH@row, "N/A") + CHAR(10) + 
    "IJK: " + IF(IJK@row <> "", IJK@row, "N/A")

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend & Happy New Year!
