```One way:

A1 = 100
A2 = 0 (or empty cell which evaluates to 0)

=IF(A2=0,0,A1/A2)

```Rohit,
Yes, it is possible. In the Cell that has the result as "#DIV/0!"
Type:
"=IF(ISERROR(C1/D1),0,(C1/D1))"
where 0 is zero or substitue "n/a"

when dividing a by b giving c; need to round-up c if it is not a whole number Excel has roundup but Access is devoid of this function. Round( a / b ) should give you what you need. That's actually Round( a / b, 0) where the number to the right of the comma is the number of decimals to round. As the helpfile in Access notes, if this is omitted, integers are returned.
