Date Formula Problem - Leave date blank if Null

I have a multiconditional formula which finds the earliest date of all
entries where all these conditions are met. If an entry does not consist of
all these conditions, I just want the cell left blank. How do I do that? I
have tried putting ,"" at the end of the formula but it still doesnt work.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
MIN(IF((report!\$D\$2:\$D\$3001=\$A\$3)*(report!\$I\$2:\$I\$ 3001=\$A\$11)*
(report!\$J\$2:\$J\$3001=\$A14)*(report!\$K\$2:\$K\$3001=\$A 15)*
(report!\$B\$2:\$B\$30010),report!\$B\$2:\$B\$3001))

Date Formula Problem - Leave date blank if Null

You might be better off using conditional formatting to "hide" the zero. You
could write the blank into the formula but then it'll be twice as long.

=IF((cond1)*(cond2)*(cond3)*(cond4)*(cond5),MIN((c ond1)*(cond2)*(cond3)*(cond4)*(cond5)*rng),"")

Conditional Format:

Select the cell with the formula
Goto FormatConditional Formatting
Formula Is: =cell_ref=0
Set the Font color to be the same as the fill color
Ok out

Eh!

Disregard that formula! See what happens when you're in a hurry to go to
dinner!

Try it like this (array entered):

=IF(SUM((cond1)*(cond2)*(cond3)*(cond4)*(cond5)),M IN(IF((cond1)*(cond2)*(cond3)*(cond4)*(cond5),rng) ),"")

Thanks for the info. I used your first suggestions about the conditional
formatting. I did not think of that. So I just used the option if cell
value =0 then I formatted the font color to match the cell background and it
works great!
Thanks again.

Yeah, I think that was your best option.

Thanks for the feedback!
