Hello Experts,

The formula I am using is this,...

="Bag Size: "&SUM(B3+1)&"""W x "&SUM(C3+1)&"""D x "&SUM(D3+C3+6)&"""L"

What I would like, is for my formula to check 3 cells.  IF they ALL have values then the formula above goes into action.  Otherwise, the cell returns " ".

Thank you in advance for your help!

Oops, I could have been a little more specific.  The cells it needs to check, are the ones I'm referencing in the formula.

Hello,

maybe

=if(count(B3:D3)=3,"Bag Size: "&SUM(B3+1)&"""W x "&SUM(C3+1)&"""D x "&SUM(D3+C3+6)&"""L","")

By the way, you don't need SUM(B3+1), you can just use B3+1, like

=if(count(B3:D3)=3,"Bag Size: "&B3+1&"""W x "&C3+1&"""D x "&D3+C3+6&"""L","")

cheers, teylyn

@ teylyn,

I am *very much* a newb when it comes to writing any formula beyond the very basics.  lol Thank you for the tip on the sum.  In looking at your solution, I would if it should be something like =>1. I'll try this out.
