    Formula to Return Blank Instead of Div Error

    Hi,
    I m having some trouble solving that DIV0 error, I checked different examples but cant find out how to solve it

    = IF(E17="LONG",((I17-G17)/G17),ABS(I17-G17)/G17)

    I get a DIV0 when the E17 is blank
    I d like excel to return 0 if E17 is blank, if you have any idea :

    Cheers

    Try this:

    =IFERROR(IF(E17="LONG",((I17-G17)/G17),ABS(I17-G17)/G17),0)

    Re: Formula to Return Blank Instead of Div Error

    The #DIV/0 ! will occur when G17 is blank - or zero, it's nothing to do with E17.

    Depending on what you're trying to achieve you should either ensure G17 is never blank or wrap the formula in an =IFERROR() function.
    i.e.

    Formula: copy to clipboard
