    Thank you so much for taking the time to put up these video out of the goodness of your heart. question at 6.12 in the video you press f4 to give absolute reference to give the days left in the following row. I don’t quite understand why not just copy from the first formula(cell containing 0). I know it does not work but I am bit confused why it does not work and why when you press f4 the currency symbol appear. I don’t remember when you explained absolute reference

    Hi. Good question. There are a couple of things you can do. The easy way is to apply a ‘Conditional Format’ to the cell so that any negative value is formatted as white text. A better way would be to combine the date calculation with an IF function to put a message in the cell if the result is negative. For example: =IF(A7-$E$3<0,"Past",A7-$E$3). If you want the cell blank use "" instead of "Past". Hope that helps.

    Love the videos! Please Keep it up!
    Quick Q about the dates. When a show date has expired, it will show a minus figure in the “Days to Go” column. Is there a way of just showing nothing rather than a minus figure? It is not a huge issue but just curious.
    Thanks again!
