    Return zero if UDF-function return error

    I made a user defined function like the one below for a special purpose. The function works fine, but I want it to return 0 (zero) if the functions return an error like #value. Any suggestion on what I have to add to this function?

    Split is an existing Excel Function & using it as your UDF name will cause problems
    Hope that helps.

    OK. The name I use is Split1 in the function (have corrected it above). It is just an example. Do you know how this can return zero if I get an error?

    I gather that you expect to split a string numbers with your UDF.
    To return a zero when there is an error, I set the return value to zero at the start of the UDF, and then enabled on error goto errorhandler. That way when when an error happens it will skip to end and the value is already set.
