# If(iserror) And If(n) - Any Difference

Aug 27, 2009
I learnt a new formula from this forum which -> if(n=(a1),a1,"S"). I use another formula -> if(iserror=(a1),a1,"S"). It comes out the same result.

May i know what is the main difference between these two formulae?

Lets say the cell I'm working on is D3

D3 = A1+A3+A5 (It's a formula, and sometimes it returns "#VALUE")

I want cell D3 to have a formula and if the result in D3 ISERROR, put a value of 1 there.

I'm running into Circular Reference, and don't know how to do it ....

I currently use the following formula using IF and ISERROR i.e.

=IF(ISERROR(IF(O12-(O12/100*80)<S12,"",IF(O12="","","Warning 20% or less Cover Remains!")))," ",(IF(O12-(O12/100*80)<S12,"",IF(O12="","","Warning 20% or less Cover Remains!"))))

What I’m after is to add an addition condition e.g. using “IF(O12-(O12/100*80)<S12” and “IF(O12-(O12/100*90)<S12” which would display either Warning 20% or less Cover Remains! or Warning 10% or less Cover Remains! incorporating ISERROR to avoid #N/A

Anyone have a way to create a macro that will convert a formula that returns an error into and IF(ISERROR) formula?

I have inherited a financial model in which the programmer did not consider that hundreds of the formula results would be #DIV/0 unless there are entries in the source cells. I would like to create a custom macro that would convert the formula to an IF statement, so that if the formula in that cell is currently creating an error, return 0, if not run the formula.

I require a worksheet formula, something along these lines:

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("Cat",OR(A1,A2))),"No","Yes")

The formula is in A3 and I need it to test both cells A1 and A2 for the existence of the word Cat. The word may be in either, both or neither of the cells.

I'm having trouble with a formula. What I want to do is create a conditional formatting so if a cell contains certain keywords, it will highlight that cell.

What I want is if a cell contains the word BOX or PO or P.O. to highlight that cell or show either a true or false.

What I have is =IF(OR(ISERROR(SEARCH("BOX",A1,1),SEARCH("PO",A1,1),SEARCH("P.O.",A1,1))),1,0)

It works if I do it separately but when combined it just stays 1 all the time despite the cell not containing those words. Am I organizing the OR and ISERROR right?

I have the formula below which sums range dv77:dv81, if dy77:dy81 is not an error. Works perfectly.

={SUM(IF(ISERROR(DY77:DY81),"",DV77:DV81))}

However I cannot seem to modify it correctly to work with a sumifs formula. Could someone please show me how it might work?, or a workaround?

For reference the sumifs would sum range(DV77:DV81), if range(E77:E81) is "Neutrogena" and range (A77:A81) is "9".

I want to conditionally delete rows if the date in the row is later than today. For example, I have a table that has a set number of rows and columns, however the dates included vary. The first column of each row has a date. I want to compare that date to "=today()" which is in another cell in the same worksheet.

This calculation sits quite happily in a workbook doing what it is supposed to do.

=IF(ISERROR(1- OFFSET(INPUT70!$A$1,20+B3,2)/OFFSET(INPUT70!$A$1,19+B3,2)-1),0,1-OFFSET(INPUT70!$A$1,20+B3,2)/OFFSET(INPUT70!$A$1,19+B3,2)-1)

In a sister worksheet is this calculation

=IF(ISERROR(1-OFFSET(INPUT71!$A$1,20+B3,2)/OFFSET(INPUT71!$A$1,19+B3,2)-1),0,1-OFFSET(INPUT71!$A$1,20+B3,2)/OFFSET(INPUT71!$A$1,19+B3,2)-1)

The name of the worksheet is all that is different.

I've written (with help from here) and IF statement, as below;

=IF('Raw - NUS'!G45="","",VALUE(TRIM(CLEAN('Raw - NUS'!G45))))

The issue is, that not all cells in my array are "" or a value, some are " " and some are " " which gives a FALSE to the arguement and returns a #VALUE! in the cell. Is there a way I can add an ISERROR to the FALSE, VALUE(TRIM(CLEAN('Raw - NUS'!G45))), result make this blank? I've tried OR, but it doesn't work.

I am trying to nest an ISERROR funtion into an IF AND statement.

Column B D E F

Cases Case Pack Reg Price VPR Price

1 14 2.25 0.00

1 14 1.75 2.00

When the value of F is zero, I want the formula to be B1*D1*E1, when the value of F is not zero, I want the formula to be F1*D1*B1. I can figure this part out. The problem is I have these values on a certain number of rows and I want a grand total at the bottom, but the rows that do not have values in them are giving me a #VALUE! error, which is messing up the grand total. I am not sure how to write the formula with the IF AND and ISERROR functions.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(R[-1]C[-1],Sheet1!C[-1]:C[1],3,FALSE)),""Error"",(VLOOKUP(R[-1]C[-1],Sheet1!C[-1]:C[1],3,FALSE)))"

which looks like this

=If(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet1!A:C,3,False)),"Error",(VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet1!A:C,3,False)))

in the spreadsheet. Can it be done to get a msgbox on error? And. Is there better way to get only the result of the vlookup above instead of using

ActiveCell.Copy

ActiveCell.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

I'm having trouble with an iserror statement in part of a procedure I've been writing. This macro uses vlookup often, and will occasionally have errors so I have been trying to use the iserror function to trap them. The code is as follows: ....

I would like some code that would wrap if(iserror) around a formula, so that if the result is an error then no text is shown. It would be good if I could select a range and the formula would be adjusted for all cells with formula in. (Would be even better if cells with references in could have if(isblank) instead!) I am currently spending ages adjusting all my formulas manually and haven't got time to try and work out how to do this with vba.(I'm not very experienced with it!)

e.g. =INDEX('Characs Single'!$B$1:$C$100,MATCH('1Report'!$B12,'Characs Single'!$B$1:$B$19,0),2)

would be come

=IF(ISERROR(INDEX('Characs Single'!$B$1:$C$100,MATCH('1Report'!$B12,'Characs Single'!$B$1:$B$19,0),2)),"",INDEX('Characs Single'!$B$1:$C$100,MATCH('1Report'!$B12,'Characs Single'!$B$1:$B$19,0),2))

why is this formula

=IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(H14:H16),"",(AVERAGE(H14:H16)

returning DIV#!0 if there is no data in the target cells, I thought the ISERROR was meant to stop that?

I'm trying to run a match function combined with If and Iserror. I need this because I want to see if a given item number in one cell in one sheet in excel is ALSO located in a given range in another excel sheet. If that number is found, I want the result to say "yes". If the item number is NOT also found in the given range in the other workbook, I want it to say "no". This is what I have so far:

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH($C9,'Case Usage Summary'!$A$2:$A$45138,0))=FALSE,"Yes","No")

The problem so far is that this is actually giving me the wrong results. For instance, the above function attempts to located cell C9, denoted as item number 964, in another sheet called Case Usage Summary in the range between A2 and A45138. If it could find 964 in that range in the Case Usage Summary sheet, it should give an answer of "yes", if it couldn't then it should give an answer of "no". The problem is that it gave me an answer of "no", but I just looked through the list of item numbers in the case usage summary sheet and there IS in fact a item number 964 entered in the range. What is going on here? I tried this for some of the other cells, and it is just giving me "no" for all of them. What is going on?

I have filled the following formula in many cells of a spreadsheet.

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(D75,'Sheet1'!$D$3:$D$5442,1,FALSE)),0,IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C75,'Sheet1'!$C$3:$C$54 42,1,FALSE)),0,IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!$A$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&G75,'Sheet1'!$B$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE),VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!$A$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE))))

I am wondering if I have nested too many functions for this to work properly. In the case where one of the first two if statements are true (an error would be produced), I am receiving a "0" as specified. However, in the case where the statement VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!$A$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE) results in an error then I should have the return of VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&G75,'Sheet1'!$B$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE), but am getting a #REF! error instead.

I'm having some difficulty getting ISERROR to work in certain cells that pull data from other sheets in my workbook. I have had no trouble getting it to work in cells that do not take data from other sheets.

This formula: =IF(ISERROR(DATEDIF($E$2,D18,"d")),"-",(DATEDIF($E$2,D18,"d"))) is an example of how I successfully got the function to work. All is well with this.

However, on a different sheet using these two formula: ='Mike Anderson'!A68 and ='Mike Anderson'!J536:L536 I could not get the ISERROR formula to work.

Unfortunately, I'm enough of a novice using Excel, that I don't know if I'm doing something wrong with the formula or if it's just not designed to work with values from another sheet. This is how I was trying to make the formula work =IF(ISERROR('Mike Anderson'!J536:L536,"",'Mike Anderson'!J536:L536)). Doing so this way created an error in which the little Excel helper guy that pops up highlighted the quotes inside the formula.

The error message I'm trying to get to not display using the "" is just a #DIV/0 message that fills the cell until some data is entered into the sheet.
