#### #VALUE! Occuring in formula result

```I have a formula in cell A1:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B9,ALL!A6:E1091,5,FALSE)=TRUE),"",VLOOKUP(B9,ALL!A6:E1091,5,FALSE))

I used this formula to eliminate the #N/A that would appear if no value
is found in the vlookup.

The result in A1 was #N/A, but now it is blank due to ISNA formula.
However, now if I add cell A1 with others cells. =SUM(A1:A10), it
returns #VALUE!.

The blank cell as a result of the ISNA formula is causing this cell not

```Or if you don't want to have '0' in your sheet you may try
=SUM(VALUE(A1:A10))
entered as array formula (CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER)

```=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B9,ALL!A6:E1091,5,FALSE)=TRUE),"0",VLOOKUP(B9,ALL!A6:E1091,5,FALSE)
- That works, wow such an easy fix to what I thought was complex.

```You may want to use 0 instead of "0".

Since =sum() ignores text and ignoring text is pretty much the same as adding 0,
it shouldn't matter much.

But if you ever need to go back to do more arithmetic, you might be happier with
the number 0--not the text "0".

(and if you want, you could drop the =true from your formula.  It could save you

Multiple Value Lookup field
I need to add multiple values to a look up field and I just found out that new to Access 2007 I can add multi-values to my look-up fields. I just tried doing this, but for some reason in the look-up wizard there is no check box that says "Allow Multiple Values", so then I went to the Lookup tab in the field properties to see if there was an Allow Multiple Values property and there was none. Not sure if this would mean anything, but this table was converted from Access 2003 to Access 2007. Why do I not have this option and what I can do about it? On Mon, 12 Nov 2007 12:58:0...

Item Value List vs Item Movement History Report (including cost)
I have been trying to create reports for previous points in time, but I am so confused at this point as to what is what. I've ran an Item Value list, which shows the current value of items, and got an extended cost. Then I ran an Item Movement History Report that includes cost with a filter that begins before the store opened and ends today. The extended cost in this report was very close, but not the same as the extended cost in the Item Value list. Is there something that the Item Movement History Report takes into account that the Item Value list doesn't, or vise versa? Beca...
