I am trying to write a formula (in the formula bar) that will only acknowledge cells with values. I have values in some cells and text in others, and have a general formula to encompass all of it. I get a #Value when I have cells in my formula that contain text. How do I "skip over" these cells without deleting them from the formula?

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

You may be able to use the N() Funtion
Code:
=N(A1)+N(A2)+N(A3)
It will, however, depend on your formula. N() terurns Text as a 0
