    Age old question: How to make #N/A into 0, and blanks into 0 - sample uploadad

    Hi guys,

    As the title suggests, I am almost finished the worksheet, and am now needing to tidy it up. I have a certain row of data (23) that is giving me #N/A scores, due to no data as yet being inputted into the source sheet it is getting data from. The source sheets are constantly updated and changing, and this summary sheet has a formula to get info from the 40 or so source sheets and put the corresponding values on the summary.

    I have included a copy, not sure if it will work for you guys as you don't have the 40 or so sheets it picks data from on your computers (at least i dont think so, haha!)

    I need to alter the VLOOKUP formula so if it ever hits a non-value, it will just throw up a 0 instead of the ugly looking #N/A.

    In the final "Air Free" column, it also contains a formula that I would like to just show a 0 instead of a blank when no info can be calculated. It will display a 0 if the value is exactly that, 0, but I also want it to show 0 if there is nothing to display.

    Any help would be awesome, I hope you can see what I mean!

    Regards, Mitch

    User Iferror() function to mask the error with your desired output.

    =IFERROR(YourFormulaGoesHere,0)


    In O12 Cell

    =IF(C7="","",IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C7,'N:\AAAFolder Structure\TECHNICAL SERVICES\Ventilation\Bag Sample Spreadsheets\LW104 Smartmate files\[LW104 IR TG seal.xls]RESULTS'!$C$12:$I$110,4),0))

    Drag it down...

    Add the Iferror() to the rest of the Vlookup() formulas with the above approach.


    In I12 Cell


    =IFERROR(IF(H12=0,0,(H12*100/(D12-E12*3.77258+F12-E12*0.001577+G12))),0)


    Drag it down...
