I am using the small function over a range of cells, but sometimes this range includes the #NUM! error, which then creates the same error in my answer. How can I write my function to ignore this error.

2
3
5
6
#NUM!#NUM!
5
9
7
4

<colgroup><col><col></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

Thank you

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

=SMALL(IF(ISERROR(A:A),"",A:A),1)

If the column in question was A. This is an Array so needs to be entered with ctrl+shft+enter

Wrap the formula in an error trap:

=IFERROR(your_formula_here,"")

Or you can try the function AGGREGATE with 6 (Ignore Errors) as second argument). Something like
=AGGREGATE(15,6,A1:A10,1)
