Formula evaluates to #VALUE

I am computing the days between dates.  I am using Vlookup() to capture
the appropriate dates in another worksheet.  Basically it is this
(where B2 & C2 are in another sheet):

B2            C2            D2
1/1/06    1/20/06        19            (C2-B2)
1/1/06    2/1/06          31
3/1/06    empty          -38777   if  C is empty and B is present I get
a large negative number
empty    3/15/06      38791       if C is present and B is empty, I get
a large positive number
empty    empty           0          if both C and B are empty, I get 0
 NA        empty	#VALUE!  If either C or B is a text, then C-B
evaluates to an error (#VALUE!)

I have an elaborate formula that should take care of that:

=IF(OR(VLOOKUP($A9,'Proposal
Status'!$G$4:$AH$307,COLUMN(),0)-VLOOKUP($A9,'Proposal
Status'!$G$4:$AH$307,COLUMN()-G$1,0)<0,VLOOKUP($A9,'Proposal
Status'!$G$4:$AH$307,COLUMN(),0)-VLOOKUP($A9,'Proposal
Status'!$G$4:$AH$307,COLUMN()-G$1,0)>3000,ISERROR(VLOOKUP($A9,'Proposal
Status'!$G$4:$AH$307,COLUMN(),0)-VLOOKUP($A9,'Proposal
Status'!$G$4:$AH$307,COLUMN()-G$1,0))),0,VLOOKUP($A9,'Proposal
Status'!$G$4:$AH$307,COLUMN(),0)-VLOOKUP($A9,'Proposal
Status'!$G$4:$AH$307,COLUMN()-G$1,0))

In simplified terms, it is:
=If(or(C-B<0,0,C-B>2000,0,ISERROR(C-B),0,C-B))

If C-B < 0 it works - evaluates to 0
If C-B > 2000 it works - evaluates to 0
If either C or B contains text (ie NA, TBD), then C-B evaluates to and
error - #VALUE!
   However, in the formula I have accounted for that but I still get
#VALUE!

Anybody have a solution?

Using your simplified formula, I think you should put the ISERROR first
- otherwise you might have errors in C-B, i.e.:

=IF(ISERROR(C-B),0,IF(OR(C-B<0,C-B>2000),0,C-B))

Hope this helps.

Try:

=IF(AND(C10>0,B10>0),C10-B10,"")

Inventory Values Copied from Old into New Items
Guys, When I use the Copy function to create new items from older items, the invenory values are carried over. In other words, the On Hand, Committed... field values under the Inventory tab are the same as the source item. Now, this cannot be correct behaviour, since a new item is independent onto its own, with its inventory quantities totally unrelated to the item from which it was originally copied.

If you want the text from two or more cells in one, you can concatenate it using a formula =A1&" " & B1 will concatenate the contents of A1 and B1 (with a space between) into the cell with the formula you can then copy / edit - paste special, values this formula to turn it into a real value and then you can delete the original fields.

What does the $ symbol mean in a formula?
What does the $ symbol mean in a formula? example: =G8*($A$14*2)*100 thanx The $ is used for absolut referencing. For e.g lets take your formula =G8*($A$14*2)*100 suppose you enter this formula in cell B2, now simply copy this formula one cell to the right (C2) by and one cell down (B3). C2: =H8*($A$14*2)*100 B3: =G9*($A$14*2)*100 So you see that The original G8 has changed, whereas $A$1 remains the same in both the new formulae because of the dollar signs.
