Correlation between two columns, ignoring errors

Hi all,

I want to check the correlation between two columns (column B and I), taking out all the values that give an error. Furthermore if a certain nth value in column B (I) gives an error, the corresponding nth value in column I (B) should also be ignored. I did it this way but it gaves a #VALUE error.


This is the formula I used:
=CORREL(IF(ISERROR(B2:B300);"";IF(ISERROR(I2:I300);"";B2:B300));IF(ISERROR(I2:I300);"";IF(ISERROR(B2:B300);"";I2:I300)))

so basically it should be CORREL(B2:B300; I2:I300) but then ignoring all the error values and corresponding values in the other column.

Any help would be appreciated :)

Thanks in advance.
