Hi DOUG KIMZEY,

Thank you for your comment. I am replying on behalf of ExcelDemy. Power Query sometimes shows grayed-out menus if you try to perform mathematical operations in multiple columns at the same time.

• To solve that problem, you can select the column >> select

Standard>> selectDivide(or whatever operation you want).• Select the

Valueaccording to your preference. Here, I want to divide by200because these scores are in200>> selectOK.• Now, you can see the values in the column are divided by

200.• In the formula bar, add your preferred operations >> click on the

Tickmark.• Finally, you will see that you have performed the grayed-out features without using them.

If this tip doesn’t work for you then please share a screenshot of your problem or the Excel file with us so that we can see what is causing the problem and solve it.

Hello JC,

Thanks for your comment. I am replying to you on behalf of ExcelDemy. The downloaded file works for me.

You can follow the steps from the Feature of

Eisenhower Matrix Template in Excelsection. If it still doesn’t work then check if all cells contain the formula in theEisenhower Matrix.And, while making your own

Eisenhower Matrix, check if you are applying for the same range as in this article. If not, change your ranges accordingly in the formula.Lastly, if you are using an older version of

Microsoft Excelthen pressCtrl + Shift + Enterwhile entering the formula.I hope this will help you to solve your problem. If none of these works then you can let us know at [email protected] with your Excel file and problem details. We will try our best to solve your problem.

Hi SEM,

Thanks for your comment. I am replying to you on behalf of

ExcelDemy. If you want to filter dates older than a number of days from today, you can follow the steps fromMethod-2. But, instead of the formula used here, write the following formula.`=C5<(TODAY()-30)`

30days from today. You can change the formula according to your preference.I hope this will help you to solve your problem. Please let me know if you have other queries.

Hi Penny,

If you check to see if the cells are blank or not then they will be evaluated as not blank because the cells contain formula. If you need blank cells then you can follow these steps.

Step-01:In aHelper Columnuse any of the formulas from this article. But instead of an empty string (`""`

) write a letter or a special character (`"#"`

) in the formula.`=IF((D5*E5)>2000,D5*E5,”#”)`

Step-02:Copy the values from theHelper Columnand Paste them asValueswhere you want the final output.Step-03:PressCtrl+Hand theFind and Replacedialog box will appear. Replace#with nothing and you will get your blank cells.Finally, if you check the cells, then you will see the cells are blank.

I have shared the necessary images for your convenience. I hope this will solve your problem. Please let me know if you have other queries.

Thanks!

Hello DQNOK,

Thank you for your feedback.

Hello Frank,

This article contains different methods for different situations.

Method 1.3hides the numbers that are less than Zero. But, if you want to hide zeros only then you can try the following code.`Option Explicit`

`Sub Hide_Rows_With_Zero()`

`Dim row As Long`

`Dim col As Long`

`Dim qq As Boolean`

`For row = 6 To 14`

`qq = True`

`For col = 2 To 4`

`If Cells(row, col).Value <> 0 Then`

`qq = False`

`Exit For`

`End If`

`Next col`

`Rows(row).Hidden = qq`

`Next row`

`End Sub`

I hope this will help you to solve your problem. Please let us know if you have other queries.

Thanks!
