#VALUE! Error

in cell E8 I have this formula: =IF(ISBLANK(D8),"",D8*\$B\$2)
I get the #VALUE! error.
Can someone tell me why and how I can correct it.
I am just trying to say that if D8 is empty don't show anything, if
populated multiply D8 by B2.

Oh, I forgot to say that D8 does have a formula in it. So that must be why I
get the error--the cell is not blank. Is there anything I can do so it does

#VALUE! Error

There is probably some text character, like a space in the cell D8

=IF(OR(ISTEXT(D8),ISBLANK(D8)),"",D8*\$B\$2)

Try this:

=IF(D8="","",D8*\$B\$2)

#VALUE! Error

=IF(OR(ISTEXT(D8),ISBLANK(D8)),"",D8*\$B\$2) when placed in E8, says...

If EITHER D8 is text, OR D8 is blank, THEN leave E8 blank, OTHERWISE, return
the result of D8 times B2

The OP could also use

=PRODUCT(D8,\$B\$2)

this will return zero if any text value is involved and won't choke on it

<<<"this will return zero if any text value is involved"

Not really!
*Any* number in the range of Product() will be returned, not 0.

Can lead to some *possible* miscalculations.
