Ignoring text in cell formulas

Ignoring text in cell formulas

Price: FREE

Is there a way in Excel to write text in a cell which will be ignored in a formula. For example I have multiple formulas such as
=(10*$C$13)+(17*$C$17)+(20*$C$14)
I would like to have a tag as to what $C$13 actually is. That information is listed in B13 so it would be nice to just reference that cell as text, and have
it be ignored by the equation. However, I would still be happy if I could just
write in what C13 is. Unfortunately most of my equations are too complicated to have a built in function in Excel.

does not plot as 0) but still keeps the text visible. For example on certain days a well is not sampled and so is left with "NM". I still want the "NM"
to show so I can use that data in a report but would like to graph it as well. I realize that I could copy the data to a new location and get rid of the text there.however, my data is dynamically produced and I would rather not have to manual update my graph in that manner
