IF and #N/A
Hi I run Excel 2K I have a VLOOKUP table that returns the value of #N/A in some cells. This is not a problem. I am looking to have a formula in an adjacent cell that looks at the #N/A and returns somthing like this: =IF(L112=#N/A,"NO","YES) (I have tired this but it returns the value of #N/A) I have also tried =IF(VALUE(L112)=#N/A,"NO,"YES) but thie returns #VALUE! I have also tried putting the #N/A in inverted commas ("#N/A") but this also does not work. Any Ideas? Thanks John You can use: =if(isna(l112),"no","yes") J...

Find "#N/A" and clear
Hi, I'd like a macro to look into range "A1:A100" and if it finds "#N/A", to clear the content. but because the content in my range "A1:A100" is updated through the =vlookup, the macro can't seem to find that the cell is "#N/A". What should I do? Thanks!

#N/A

Omitting #N/A
I have a Vlookup formula that looks up a date on another worksheet if the date is there. The date may or may not be entered each time therefore the #N/A is returned as the value when the date is not there. The cell with the Vlookup formula is linked to another worksheet with a basic sum function which will not work because of the #N/A that is on the Vlookup spreadsheet. Is there anyway to keep the #N/A from populating that cell with the Vlookup formula? Thanks for the help. Todd Yes, use the ISERROR() function. e.g. IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(.....)=TRUE),0,VLOOKUP(....)). ----------...

Hiding #N/A With Conditional Formatting
Hi all, I've got a VLOOKUP list that, if nothing is in the a cell it is lookin up in returns a "#N/A" cell value. No problem there. However, I'd lik to hide these values, and just keep the returned VLOOKUP values. I thought this would be done easiest using conditional formatting o the cells, and setting the font colour to white if the cell value wa "#N/A". I tried the following condition: Cell Value / equal to / #N/A But Excel doesn't seem to like this. I've also tried the #N/A i inverted commas, and also typing #N/A in a cell (let's say A50) an doi...

INDEX returns #N/A for text?
Just a quick prob someone might be able to help with. I've got a master file linked to numerous subfiles which extracts data to form a matrix. Essentially it looks for a matching date in the subfile and returns the appropriate entry using: =INDEX('Z:\[Bath.xls]Availability'!$B$13:$V$13,1,MATCH(B3,'Z:\[Bath.xls]Avai lability'!$B$10:$V$10)) This works fine as long as the entries in the subfile are numeric values.

Simple? How do I average data while skipping #N/A errors?
Hi, I thought I would find a simple soution to this problem, but I haven' so far. I am simply wanting to average a large number of data groups but I really need to be able to skip the errors automatically. Is thi possible? The reason I need this is because I will have averages running alon the bottom of columns and along the end of the rows (so there are a lo of calculations), and the #N/As need to stay in because they translat through as discontinuities in line graphs I have plotted from th data.

Substituting #N/A
Hi all, I have a worksheet that records the status of various projects. The formula is dependent on another worksheet, and some of my colleagues have not filled this in, which then returns an #N/A in my project status cell. I would like for this not to be presented and instead simply have a message saying 'None Recorded' (or something along those lines). However, because I have a formula already in the cell, I'm not sure how to do this. The formula is as below: =IF(R105=E129,D129,IF(R103<E134,D133,IF(R103>E136,D137,D135))) Can anyone help me to accomplish my goal? TIA, ...
