Hello everyone, this is my first time posting here. Anyway I was making a simple spreadsheet as I'm taking practice tests for some IT certifications and the spreadsheet I was making was to chart out my progress.
I had a range of scores in some cells and one of the formulas I used so that I didnt have errors in the sheet like div/0 went like the following:
=if(b5:b50="","",sum(b5:b50)) this seemed to work really well for the one section, however I tried to get a little fancy as always and I think I messed something up. Beneath that I tried to separate each practice test with the same sort of formula resulting something like the following:
=if(b30:b40="","",sum(b30:b40)) this however just returned an error #value. I dont understand why the first formula worked and the second didnt. Then again, I'm not really an excel guru, back in college I was really good with it but I dont really remember much. If someone could shed some light as to what I might be doing wrong I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks.
