How to sum a column with errors
I have a column where the cells contain a vlookup formula for an exact match
only. If there is no match, the value N/A# is returned. However, I would like to be able to sum the values that the vlookup does find. How do you write the formula so that instead of returning N/A# it returns zero or blank if the vlookup can't find a match? Thanks

How to sum a column with errors
Best way
change the vlookup formula to =IF(ISNA(Vlookup_formula)),0,vlookup_formula) that way you will get 0 instead of #N/A otherwise =SUMIF(Range,"<#N/A") will sum the non error values  Regards, Peo Sjoblom "blkane" wrote in message ...

Use the ISNA function inside of an IF Statement:
=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(...)),"",VLOOKUP(...)) HTH, Elkar "blkane" wrote: I have a column where the cells contain a vlookup formula for an exact match only. If there is no match, the value N/A# is returned.

Peo,
Thanks, I was reading some other threads at the same time you posted. I knew there had to be a way. I'm going to go with the ISNA function. This series of functions is new to me but I plan to use them more in the future.

I tried that and I kept getting a formula area that would point directly to
the double "" in the formula. I finally figured out that I was missing a parens just before the ,"". You both have been very helpful.

It's better to fix the #N/A errors but sometimes you may want to know if
there is an error. This will sum a range and ignore any #N/A errors: =SUMIF(A1:A10,"<#N/A") Biff "blkane" wrote in message ...
