Trying to make a formula blank.

If the following Ln on a sheet, grabs a value and that value is a Date.

ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="ColI", RefersToR1C1:="=" & Me.Name & "!R" & Target.Row & "C9" ' LnReqDelDate

however if the cell it is grabbing in column 9 from, is blank it returns:  1900-01-00

I use the formula on =ColI on another sheet to put that value in.
Is there another way to write the formula  =ColI so that if it returns 1900-01-00 (meaning blank) , it can make it ""     ??

Custom format the formula cell with dd/mm/yyyy;; to hide 1900-01-00.

I cannot do that.. the required format is yyyy-mm-dd  because if it is not blank it needs to stay and use the date and in that specific reformat.

That's not the beg deal, you can custom format it with yyyy-mm-dd;;

Okay I made them bold so that you don't miss the complete syntax.
Glad it worked at last for you.
