How do I hide #VALUE! error text

I've tried as per the help to use conditional formatting and that
doesn't hide the text.

I've tried adding =IFERROR to my formula and it tells me there's an
error in the formula where I've added ,"",

My formulas are =INT(MID($B5,1,(SEARCH("M",$B5,1))-1))

I'd rather not use script thanks.

You need to get at the source of the error. If the cell does not
contain "M" then SEARCH will return an error, so this can be trapped.
Your first formula would become:


although you could use LEFT instead of MID in this case. Also, you
might want to return "" instead of the 0 in the middle.

Hope this helps.

Cannot Create File When That File Already Exists Installation Error

Combine cells and keep the values
Hello all. I comment you a strange thing that makes my Excel (Office 2003 SP2). (Perhaps is a piece of nonsense and I have reinvent the wheel) In the range ‘A1:A10’ of an empty worksheet I write several values (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10). In the cell ‘A11’ I put `=Average(A1:A10)'. (Result = 5.5) I select the range ’B1:B10’ and with `Format - Alignment', I combine the cells. I copy the combined range ‘B1:B10’ and in A1 I made a Special Paste - Format (if I combine A1:A10 directly does not work) The range ’A1:A10’ is combined and shows the value that was in A1 (1) but it conserves...

How do I hide gaps in an Excel 2007 chart?
I have a bar chart that is showing gaps and i don't want them. The select data > hidden and empty cell button does not give an option to hide gaps.

Graph line graphs where X & Y values meet

It draws the Line Graphs perfectly. I was wondering though that if a user could input their desired spend, Excel could then draw another line graph (like a 90 degree angle) to show where they would fall on the graph. Is this even possible? Are there better add-ons or programs for Excel that can do what I want? I mean, I can manually draw the meeting point lines but I would rather have something au...
