Excel Tricks : Hide Those %&@# Formula Errors
Errors in Microsoft excel may sometimes occurs while doing calculation, such us multiplying a word to a number, and many more, This post will help you to drop the unwanted characters that will result to errors in calculation, But you have to use this trick with caution. I recommend using this trick for Excel Advance users rather that Microsoft excel new user.
Problem : You are making calculation on Your Microsoft Excel Sheet and suddenly when you remove your Fixed Values, Your calculated answers returns the value ( #VALUE or #DIV/0 ). This is because a certain number ort any number has been divided by Zero.
Solution : You have to use the function ISERROR
ISERROR Returns TRUE if the value is any error value
Syntax : =IF(ISERROR(Original Formula),”",(Original Formula))
Sample : =if(iserror(B4*C4),”",(B4*C4))
Conclusion : This means that if B4*C4 will result to an invalid mathematical Calculation the answer will be null ( or blank )
