# SUM Formula: Ignore Error #n/A Cells

Dec 19, 2006
i m trying to add values in different sheets though some of the values have a #n/A in them and i want to ignore this = SUM(Set1!D9,Set3!D9,Set2!D9). However Set1!D9 is an error and I would like to ignore this value!!

I have a spreadsheet for which I have to set up a formula to get the minimum value from a range of cells, but that range can include blank cells, errors (#DIV/0) and zeros, all of which I want to be ignored. I can work out how to ignore EITHER the zeros

(=MIN(IF(C10:G100,C10:G10)),

or the error cells

(=MIN(IF(ISNUMBER(C9:G9),C9:G9)),

How to exclude both. If I try to combine both of these exclusion criteria it doesn't work and I end up with the answer #DIV/0, which is one of the values I want it to ignore.

I need to get a subtotal of a range (eg: A1:A30), however some cells in this range have #N/A errors due to particular formulas they contain. I could go into these cells and add a formula which 'catches' these errors, but there are far too many given my current time constraints.

Is there any way to use SUMIF to add the cells which do not contain errors and skip the ones that do? (ie: SUMIF($A$1:$A$30,""&"Error Parameter")).

In cell C1 I hace A1-B1 and in cell DI want to display the status of the cell C1 like this : =IF(C10 ; "NOT OK" ; "OK") This means that when the value of the cell C1 is different then 0 cell D1 will display "NOT OK" and if the value of cell c1 is 0 then D1 will display "OK".

The PROBLEM: Because the cell C1 contains a formula (A1-B1) the D1 cell will display "NOT OK" even if the cell C1 doesn't show any number.

I have a list of assessment scores for students with a matching grade in text form. I want to show the percentage of students that receive "Adv" and "Pro" grades out of the total number of students (cells with data). But I have extra cells in case students are added during the year. I need to have the formula ignore any empty cells and count all of the "Adv" + "Pro" grades divided by number of students with data. I would like to do this by including the extra cells in the formula so I don't need to amend the formula should students be added. This is the formula so far. Maybe there is a totally better way to write this formula.

=SUM(COUNTIF(C7:C60,"*"&{"Pro","Adv"}&"*"))/COUNTA(C7:C60)

I have a table that looks similar to the below. I want to be able to extract the numbers between the brackets and add all up in the last column (as shown in example below).

I have used something like the below however it returns #VALUE in column F because of the empty cells.

(SUMPRODUCT(REPLACE(A1:F5,1,FIND("(",A1:F5),"(")+0))

I need a formula that will be applicable even when there are empty cells and return the results as shown.

I have the following formula which counts number of days between dates in two adjacent cells excluding holidays

=NETWORKDAYS(U311,V311,$AA$4:$AA$14)-1

The $AA$4:$AA$14 refers tote range where the excluded holiday dates are stored.

I have included the -1 at the end as it over counts by one day every time. i.e. if the same date is in both cells it counts 1

However if no date is in both fields it count -1 (minus one)

If a date is just in one field it counts a very high number, example below.

-1

16/07/2014

-29879

20/06/2014

08/07/2014

12

[code].....

is there a better formula to use for this? How do I get the result to show ZERO when both cells are empty? can I get the result to show number of days to present date where there is only a date in first column?

I have a worksheet (Data) that lists when pupils are in for Nursery sessions during the week. If they are in they have a 3 (hours) by their name in the relevant columns.

In the AM worksheet I now need to pull through a "register" so under each daily heading I need to pull through everyone that has a 3 next to their name under Monday AM / Tuesday AM / Wednesday AM etc. from the Data sheet. However, I don't want it to copy any blank cells. I then need to do the same for the PM sheet.

So I highlighted bunch of cells where numbers are stored as text and chose "ignore error". But when I re-sort the list, the errors come right back again.

Is there a way to get them to stick so I don't have to keep choosing ignore error?

Is it possible to sort a worksheet and either ignore #N/A error or have it drop to bottom of sort. I'm sorting a table by the highest value in a column bit all of the rows with the #N/A error are shown before the rows I want to see.

I am running a macro which filters a column to show only records with "#N/A" (ie an error), and copies these to another worksheet. As I am aiming for no errors, there will be occasions when there is no filtered data.

My problem is that, unless I use something like xlCellTypeVisible, when there is no data shown it still copies and pastes all the hidden records. And if I do use it when no filtered data, I currently get an error "No cells were found".

I have tried many iterations of code correction and i think i'm currently blinded by staring at it so long!

My current if statement reads as follows:

[Code] .....

I think I might need to use some sort of On Error Resume Next statement, but I have never used these before. When I tried adding that before the If statement, it just ignored the criteria and tried copying hidden rows - the exact opposite of what I want.

I'd like something that said, if this condition = error, skip over entire if statement and carry on with rest of the sub.

I have the following two columns in A1:B4 (customer # followed by percentage)

1 0.5

2 0.9

3 0.8

4 #DIV/0!

In column D i have a list of the customer #s. In column E i try to identify if the customer in column D have a percentage >=.8.

I am using the below formula, but getting a #DIV/0! error due to the error in cell B4, which i am not allowed to change using an iferror formula.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A4=D2),--(B1:B4>=0.8))

Is there a way to get around this using sumproduct or any other method to determine if the customer in D has a percentage >= 80%?

I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.

I have this formula which is counting the number of cells in a column that fall within each calender month.

However, if there is a formula at the bottom of column B and C that yield a "", the formula breaks.

In my workbook, B/C:133 have a formula =""

I will need the formula in column E to work if there is a formula that yields a "" in column B and C.

I have a formulae set up on a sheet to calculate the average of the row. When there are no values in the row, it comes up with # DIV/0! as you cannot divide by 0 which I know. Is there a way to not show this until values are entered?

Let's say I have a set of values (A1:A10) where each contains a number, with a varied amount of decimal places (some may have 0, some may have 10)...how can I make a formula in cell B1 that averages A1:A10, ignoring the decimal places (rounding to the nearest whole number)

For example, if this was A1:A10

93.11

94

92.12321

95.1

96.7

98.1

99

100.03

88.6677

85.6675

If I did the Average (=AVG(A1:A10)), I would get 94.2498. But I don't want this, I want the formula to take into account the numbers rounded to the nearest whole number, meaning, I want to take the average of..

93

94

92

95

97

98

99

100

89

86

Which would give me a value of 94.3.. In this example, there isn't much of a difference, but I was simplifying the numbers for time sake

Working on athletics worksheet. Have worked out a formula to attribute a PB (Personal Best) in a MIN range not including the first cell entry (as first entry is not a PB) in events where less =PB

=IF(ISBLANK(F6)," ",IF(F6(MAX(V$5:V6)),"PB"," ")) keeps recognising first entry as PB. Any help greatly appreciated

first entry could be anywhere in the column but all entries after will be below it.

All I believe Juan Pablo posed a quick little diddy on how to have the SUMIF ignore #N/A?? I promised myself I would remember it but here I am asking if anyone remembers it or know how to have Excel add up a column even though the column contains #N/A's.

I want to stop those little green error checking markers in the top corner of cells from appearing in my spreadsheet. My formula is correct however the error markers appear in 40(ish) cells and make it look very untidy. I know there is the option of turning background error checking off, however isn't appealing to me as I have other worksheets where I want to check for errors. Also, my report is used by 20 people so I can't change the options which might affect other reports they may have.

What I'd like to do is either turn off the option for one specific worksheet, or add a few lines of code which sets the cell properties to ignore the error for each of the cells affected. I've tried to use macro recorder to work out how to ignore a cell but it doesn't record anything for this action. Is anyone aware of the correct piece of code to carry out this action?

I am trying to write a macro to find all cells that are returning cell errors (ie: #REF!) within a named range, to select only those cells, and then to clear the contents of only these cells. It is my understanding that replacing or altering the value is not an option because doing so will return a "" string value, instead of a clear cell. Replacing the cell's contents with a =na() is also unacceptable...these cells to be completely clear. I was unable to piece together a macro from searching around this site and thought it would be best to just ask.

I use the following sum array formula in a range of data, but receive a #VALUE!-error, because of some lines with text. Is it possible to ignore text like this by using IF(ISERROR...) or something else, combined with the array-formula below.

I have a cell with a formula in it. I want to use conditional formatting on this cell if the formula result leaves it blank. Given the formula is in the cell it's never recognised as blank. If an entry is input instead the formula then obviously I don't want the conditional formatting.

What formula can I use in the conditional formatting for it to recognise the Cell formula as blank?

I have setup a formula with an if statment, so if a cell on another sheet = a certian txt then my sheet A will equal a certian txt, But the problem is i also need to count the cells that contain txt on sheet A, but when i setup a CountA Formula on sheet A it counts the cells with Formula's in then is there a way to only count the result and not include the counting of formula's?

I'm running a chiropractic office. In order to see where I've been and where I'm going I keep track of things like new patient visits, patient report visits, cash in, insurance in, etc. I keep track of this on a daily basis on one worksheet. The weekly totals are paste-linked into another sheet. It is this sheet that I would like to use to create a dynamic chart however, in using the OFFSET function to create the chart, the formula counts the 'blank' cells b/c of the paste-link from the previous worksheet.

I have a row of cells, say, A1 to G1. I wish to sum the values in cells, say, A1, C1, F1 and G1 only. The chosen cells can have values 0, >0 or Blank. How do I sum the values and ignore the blank cell(s) without getting #VALUE!? Filling the blank cells with "0" is not an option.

(Any blank cells may have a value added at a later date).

Edit: I could use multiple 'IF' statements, but this is cumbersome. There must be a simpler way.

I am working on 2 tabs in a workbook.

The first tab has raw data - The second is my summary.

TAB1 -includes

column A = name range column B = Evaluation Result 1 %

column C = Evaluation Result 2 %

column D = Evaluation Result 3 %

column E = Evaluation Result 4 %

TAB 2 on...The remainder of the tabs are summary for each name in column A of Tab1.

each summary tab includes

A3 = name

A7 = Evaluation Results 1

A8 = Evaluation Results 2

A9 = Evaluation Results 3

A10 = Evaluation Results 4

The evaluation results can include any % from 0-100 and can also be blank. I need to count the 0 but ignore the blanks so for example on Evaluation Result 1, Im using

=SUMIF(Tab1!$A:$A,Tab2!$A$3,Tab1!$B:$B)

So I can find the name in the list of names and the % score for the evaluation - however I don't know how to ignore the blank cells. If the cells are blank I would like to see "-". if they are 0% I would like to see the 0%.

I have a graph that references a column which contains a formula. In the instances where this formula produces a zero value or a DIV/0 error, I would like the graph to contain a blank space.

As it is now, the zero or DIV/0 cell graphs as a zero value. I have tried using an IF statement which takes any zero or error and replaces the cell value with "": IF(A5/A6=0,"",A5/A6)

Even though the cell comes up as blank... a zero value still appears on the graph. The only way for me to have the graph ignore that cell is to go into the cell and delete the formula. This is unnacceptable b/c the data is updated daily... I do not want to have to go through my data every day and delete cells.
