We have data in Column1. In Column2 we want a formula that checks to see if a cell in Column1 has data in it, if so put a $ in the cell on Column2, if not leave it blank.

We want to drag this formula all the way down in column 2 checking.

I imagine this has to be a simple formula, any help?

Thanks!

Does this do what you want?

=IF(ISBLANK(A1),"","$")

Just in case you have whitespace character(s) in the cells and want them to be treated as blank cells, use the following formula for row 1 and then copy it down to other rows.

=IF(TRIM(A1)<>"","$","")
