Macro to avoid all kind of formula error.....

Posted by NiuB on December 31, 2001 6:06 AM

such as div , #n/a or anything when it returns nothing..
is it possible to create macro like the formula
that we create no need to have like iserror or is blank..
i'm thinking something like sub auto_open with this everytime we open the file..and the formulla
returns will shows nothing instead of error
likes #n/a, div# or 0..thanks..happy new year and hope
this possible

Sub CheckForErrors()
If IsError(Range("A1").Value) Then
Range("A1").Value = ""
End If
End Sub

This piece of code checks for an error in cell A1 and if there is one removes the content of the cell. Keep in mind this will delete the formula that is returning the error, and as such may not be what you want.
If it is what you want however, it can be looped to scan a particular area. Probably easier to use the CELLS(y,x) notation rather than the A1 notation.

The code can then be activated at your request or on workbook_open.

Hope this helps.
