Hi Benoit,

For some reason, it also doesn't work... I have a message saying that the formula is incoherent.

The N cell is indeed blank but it doesn't show any number when the G column does have characters in it.

Help!

to add an asterisk (*) as follows:

=SI(NBCAR(G70)*0;NBCAR(G70);"")


my posted formula should work. I guess the issue is caused by the
separators. I don't know what separators are used in a french system.
Try my formula and change the semicolon to comma.

You could use only
=NBCAR(G70)
and deactivate "In cells with zero values show 0" in the options.


Since SI = IF there has to be a reason if so I would write:
=SI(NBCAR(G70)=0;NBCAR(G70);"")

It's in fact (IF;THEN;ELSE)
