Hi All. 
I am trying to add a loop that checks for blank values and assign 0 to them as my import is not allowing blank cells in csv.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Error: System.NullPointerException: Attempt to de-reference a null object

Hi All
had a quick question on writing a formula.So the use case is as follows.
We have separate timetrade links that oppty owners have that is linked to their calender for appointment fixing.So now we want to add this formula feild to email template where i can specify it the oppty owner is x then send x's timetrade link to the customer.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. 
Thanks Suman

We currently have a workflow email in place and it gets triggered where when someone changes the opportunity stage to (closed won or closed won annual) and opportunity department is (sales). However I want this workflow to get triggered only when if the opportunity owner changes/marks it as (closed won or closed won annual) and opportunity department is (sales). How can I do this? 

Thank you,

I created a  custom clone button for opportunity, using the following code: {!URLFOR( $Action.Opportunity.Clone , Opportunity.Id , ["opp3"=Opportunity.Name+"-Copy","opp9"="",,"00N54000000aRB3"=""...,"retURL"= URLFOR( $Action.Opportunity.View ,) ], true)}

One of the requirement is to give some fields the new values or empty them. When the button is clicked the new screen with cloned opportunity is opened and some fields got the new values except Date and Pick List (the ones that should be blank). I am not able to put a blank value to a date field or pick list. In the example, I provided opp9 is a ClosedDate. If I put any non null value, the clone will be created with a new value in this field, if I put ="', for a date or pick list, it's not working, the value from original opportunity stays on a cloned one.
Does anyone knows how to empty date and pick list on a clone?
