# Need Help: formula doesn't recognize Results for another Formula

I have created a spreadsheet designed to list Missing Numbers and I need help formulating a formula to recognize the results from another formula. I currently have to

manually type in the numbers in the "Enter #'s" Column A5:A20. I want to use the formulas =B1, =Mid(B1,5,1), =Mid(B1,9,1), Right(B1,1), etc. to list the numbers that are in columns B thru G, however the formulas listed below does not recognize the numeric results produced by the formulas in column A5:A20.

Can someone help me solve this problem? Thank you in advance

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(0,\$A\$5:\$A\$21,1,FALSE)),0,"") This formula is in column B row 5

=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(ROWS(\$A\$5:\$C5),A\$5:A\$20,0)),"",ROWS(\$A\$5:\$C5 )) and this formula is in Column B row 6 to 20

B D F H
 #'s 3 - 6 - 4 -8 6 - 3 - 5 -8 8 - 4 - 7 -2 1 - 2 - 8 -3 Results of missing numbers 09 Enter #'s 3 0 6 4 8 6 3 5 8 8 4 9 7 2 1 2 8 3

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

The functions MID. RIGHT, etc. are going to return a text string and not a numeric value. If you need a numeric value try.
=MID(B1,5,1)+0
