=IF(OR(F389="",(ISERROR(IF(F389=1,0.5,3)))),"",IF(F389=1,0.5,3))

this formula could be in any cell. Cell F389 currently has the value of #NA the formulas result is #NA but should show blank.


any idea where it is wrong?

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.
=IF(OR(F389="",(ISERROR(IF(F389=1,0.5,3)))),"",IF(F389=1,0.5,3))

this formula could be in any cell. Cell F389 currently has the value of #NA the formulas result is #NA but should show blank.

Would you describe in words what you need?

If cell f389 equals 1 show .5 else show 3 if cell f389 is anything but a number show blank...

after typing out what i needed i came up with a differant formula that works for what I am doing....

=IF(ISNUMBER(F389),IF(F389=1,0.5,3),"")


thanks for the effort though.
