Please try this formula:-
=IFERROR(INDEX($G$5:$G$14,MATCH(TRUE,($G$5:$G$14<>" "),0))," ")

Open in new window

It is an array formula which you must commit with Shift+Control+Enter (as opposed to the usual singular Enter). If entered correctly it will show up in curly braces in the formula bar, else it will return a #VALUE! error which the IFERROR function will commute to " ".
Whether by design or accident your formula in G5:G14 has a "joker" in it:
=IF(F5=$A$4,"A"," ")
Normally, one would use =IF(F5=$A$4,"A","") where the alternative to "A" is a Nullstring. Your formula enters as single space instead. My above formula now looks for any alternative to a single space and ends up finding "A". The disadvantage in this might be that a Nullstring (If A4 is blank) is also an alternative to a single space and would therefore be found.

To match what you are doing, my formula also returns a single space, rather than the usual Nullstring, if the MATCH function finds nothing.
Unless all of this is part of your design I suggest that you replace the " " (single space) with "" (Nullstring) in both your formula and one or both instances of my formula.

Hi berryhoudini,

I want formula presets the value other then " " in cell G15. i.e. you can see from range G5:G14 there is some formula, if condition  doesn't match it returns to " ". else produce result.in over case Result is "A" in cell G9, so want that result should be produce in Cell G15.
