From: Malcolm on 27 May 2010 17:25 I'm using a worksheet that has a cell (C27) that totals rooms and a cell (J28) that totals rates and a cell (J29) that is the average daily rate total, rate/total rooms. I'm using the formula =AVERAGE(J28/C27). The only problem is until I actually input a number into C27 I get the #DIV/0! displayed in my ADR cell (J29). I don't always need this data so is there a way I can input the formula and not have the #DIV/0! in cell J29?

You don't need the AVERAGE function. =IF(C27=0,0,J28/C27) =IF(iserror(J28/C27),0,J28/C27) in 2007; =IFERROR(J28.C27,0) My preference runs to the if error formulas Sig  |  Next  |  Last Pages: 1 2 3 Prev: Date inconsistent help please :)Next: Date Help
