#VALUE error
I am using Excel from Office 2007.
I transfered a spreadsheet program from a Works spreadsheet, which I had adapted from one supplied with the program. It calculates your mortgage payments. I adapted it to calculate ROI from several variables on prespective rental properties. In Excel I get a #VALUE error when a cell conditionally references another cell that references another cell. I have attached several of the cell functions. =IF(AND(F5,F6,F7),PMT((F6/12)/100,F11,F5),"") =IF(AND(G8,G9,G10),PMT((G9/12)/100,G13,G8),"") =IF(G24,G24/G5,"") The online help says that I shouldn't reference a function, but I need the return of that cell's function to complete another function in another cell. The cell may return my monthly mortgage payment. I then use that product and the product of say property taxes/12, management fees and yearly repair expenses/12 to calculate my estimated monthly expenses on a property. I can then calculate my free cash flow from that property for the month. If the cell referenced is blank, I'd like the cell referencing it to remain blank too. The spread sheet seems to work properly when the variable cells are filled, but I want the cells doing a calculation to remain blank if there are no values in the other cells. If someone can also point me to where I can read more extensively on the matter, I would be most grateful.  YMHS Radar

#VALUE error
Some thoughts:
In Excel I get a #VALUE error when a cell conditionally references another cell that references another cell. Yes, if you've got error value/s upstream, that will likely propagate to all downstream formulas pointing to it Perhaps as an example, to replace your: =IF(AND(F5,F6,F7),PMT((F6/12)/100,F11,F5),"") you could try trapping all the upstream cells using COUNT as a check that these contain numbers before evaluating further: =IF(COUNT(F5,F6,F7,F11)<4,"",PMT((F6/12)/100,F11,F5)) I'm not sure how F7 figures in your calc: PMT((F6/12)/100,F11,F5) but since you showed it in the AND part, I just included it. The "<4" in: =IF(COUNT(F5,F6,F7,F11)<4,"", is the check for numbers to be present in all 4 cells within the COUNT You could replace COUNT with COUNTA for checks involving a combination of text/numbers, eg: =IF(COUNTA(F5,F6,F7,F11)<4,"", ...

#VALUE error
=if(iserror(IF(AND(F5,F6,F7),PMT((F6/12)/100,F11,F5),"")= true, "",
=IF(AND(F5,F6,F7),PMT((F6/12)/100,F11,F5),""))) This will not return a value if the formula results in an error and you won't see the #error value in the cells.
