#Div/0
Hi  is there a way to avoid getting this result #DIV/0? Can I divide and get
a line or something instead when there is nothing to divide by? =B5/A5? Thank you

Here's one that's even more generic, but a little more dangerous  it
disregards virtually all errors, including divide by zero: =IF(ISERR(B5/A5),"",B5/A5) note that you can put something in there to show when it did have a problem (most likely a divide by zero: =IF(ISERR(B5/A5),"",B5/A5) "H" wrote: Hi  is there a way to avoid getting this result #DIV/0?

Hey thanks  is there a way to do something like this for  I'm getting the
#Div/0 on a few cuz T is 0 =+(X2/T2)*12 "JLatham" wrote: Here's one that's even more generic, but a little more dangerous  it disregards virtually all errors, including divide by zero: =IF(ISERR(B5/A5),"",B5/A5) note that you can put something in there to show when it did have a problem (most likely a divide by zero: =IF(ISERR(B5/A5),"",B5/A5) "H" wrote: Hi  is there a way to avoid getting this result #DIV/0?

Hi,
I second Bob's comment on your other post  please post a question to only one newgroup at a time. You have plenty of answers between your two post, but let me encourage you not to use the =+(X2/T2)*12 syntax First you don't need both = and + and in fact you should use only = to start your formulas. = is OK but not =+ It doesn't affect the formula results but it is extra typing, takes extra memory, and is bad style. Second =X2/T2*12 does the same calculation as your. So the parentheses are not necessary here.  If this helps, please click the Yes button.

I wholly agree with deprecating unneeded parentheses when they encumber readability. But I would say that 12*X2/T2 is better than X2/T2*12 in most contexts. Even though they are functionally equivalent, thanks to the equal precedence of / and *, I would say that X2/T2*12 is easy to misinterpret, and it is easy to raise questions about the intent ( X2/(T2*12)? ). If I were to express X2/T2*12 in that order, I would either write X2/T2 * 12 (added spacing) or, in fact, (X2/T2)*12.  original message  "Shane Devenshire" wrote in message ...

what about this when one of the columns has #div/0

It's a judgment call. Caveat emptor: If you start returning "" in some cells, it would be prudent to allow for references to such cells in your formulas. So: =if(iserror(12*n(X807)/n(T807)/n(V807)), "", 12*n(X807)/n(T807)/n(V807))  original message  "H" wrote in message ... what about this when one of the columns has #div/0 =+((X807/T807)*12)/V807 [.....] "JLatham" wrote: Here's one that's even more generic, but a little more dangerous  it disregards virtually all errors, including divide by zero: =IF(ISERR(B5/A5),"",B5/A5) note that you can put something in there to show when it did have a problem (most likely a divide by zero: =IF(ISERR(B5/A5),"",B5/A5) "H" wrote: Hi  is there a way to avoid getting this result #DIV/0?
