Formula Help

Hey guys, need some help, I got this formula from an expert here:
=IFERROR(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(INDEX(F115:L115,MODE(MATCH(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(F115:L115,"-",""),"+",""),SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(F115:L115,"-",""),"+",""),0))),"-",""),"+",""),F115)

What it does is in F115:L115 find any matching data, ignoring the + or -.  In my latest set of data here is what i have
I115: is -TSRA, j115 is +TSRA and K115: is TS, so the result should be TSRA, but it is display the value of F115 which is blank.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Since the other cells are blanks the blank matches with a blank and the result is a blank.

Although TSRAs also match they come after the blanks so the blank is displayed

Hello Sandramac,

You can add another check to exclude blanks, i.e.

=IFERROR(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(INDEX(F115:L115,MODE(IF(F115:L115<>"",MATCH(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(F115:L115,"-",""),"+",""),SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(F115:L115,"-",""),"+",""),0)))),"-",""),"+",""),F115)

confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER

regards, barry
