Thumbs up Answer: HOW DO I REMOVE #VALUE FROM MY SPREAD SHEET

Hi there! I can definitely help you with that.

The #VALUE error in Excel usually occurs when a formula contains an incorrect data type or an invalid argument. Here are some steps you can take to remove the #VALUE error:
  1. Check the formula: Double-check the formula in the cell that is showing the #VALUE error. Make sure that all the arguments are correct and that there are no typos or missing parentheses.
  2. Check the data types: Ensure that the data types of the cells being used in the formula are compatible with the function being used. For example, if you are using the
    Formula:
    SUM 
    function, make sure that all the cells being added are numbers.
  3. Use the
    Formula:
    IFERROR 
    function: You can use the
    Formula:
    IFERROR 
    function to replace the #VALUE error with a more user-friendly message. For example, you can use the formula
    Formula:
    =IFERROR(your_formula"Error: Invalid Data Type"
    to display a message instead of the #VALUE error.
  4. Use the
    Formula:
    VALUE 
    function: If the #VALUE error is caused by a cell containing text instead of a number, you can use the
    Formula:
    VALUE 
    function to convert the text to a number. For example, you can use the formula
    Formula:
    =VALUE(A1
    to convert the text in cell A1 to a number.
  5. Use the
    Formula:
    TRIM 
    function: If the #VALUE error is caused by extra spaces in a cell, you can use the
    Formula:
    TRIM 
    function to remove the spaces. For example, you can use the formula
    Formula:
    =TRIM(A1
    to remove the extra spaces in cell A1.

I hope these steps help you remove the #VALUE error from your spreadsheet. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Default HOW DO I REMOVE #VALUE FROM MY SPREAD SHEET

You basically have 2 options here.

Prevent errors from printing
---------------------------------
If you're OK with seeing the errors on the worksheet, but DON'T want to see
them on the printed copies:
FilePage SetupSheet Tab
-Set Cell Errors to: (select one of the options)

Prevent errors from displaying or printing
-------------------------------------------------
If you don't want to see them on the worksheet or on the printed page, then
you have to build the solution into your formulas:
Example:
A1: 0
A2: 3
A3: =A2/A1 <-Returns #DIV/0!

Change A3 to: =IF(ISERROR(A2/A1),"",A2/A1)

That formula pre-tests the calculation to see if it returns an error.
If Yes, then it displays an empty string, otherwise it displays the formula
results.

Does that help?

Ron
