How to return a blank cell in my formula results when the referenced cell is blank?
I've been trying various different ways to add to my formula to return a blank cell when the date cell I'm referencing is blank, none seem to be working.
The formula should give me a 3 if the date is 0  90 days in the future, a 4 if between 90  120 days in the future, a 6 if 120  180 days and "over 6 months" if more than 180 in the future. I am using the value returned to setup conditional formatting so I need to figure out what to add into the formula to return a blank cell if the date cell is blank.
Formula:
=IF([Exercised Period of Performance End Date]@row <= TODAY(90), 3, IF([Exercised Period of Performance End Date]@row <= TODAY(120), 4, IF([Exercised Period of Performance End Date]@row <= TODAY(180), 6, "Over 6 months")))
Thank you!!

Give this a try. It will basically only run the formula when there is a date (which in turn leaves the cell blank if there is no date).
=IF([Exercised Period of Performance End Date]@row <> "", IF([Exercised Period of Performance End Date]@row <= TODAY(90), 3, IF([Exercised Period of Performance End Date]@row <= TODAY(120), 4, IF([Exercised Period of Performance End Date]@row <= TODAY(180), 6, "Over 6 months"))))

It worked!! Thank you so much.
