I've got a statement that basically says:

(CELL AB6) ... my formula says that if either of these entries (HC, HL, HP, HE) are present in CELL A6 .... then take the value in CELL AA6 and divide it by the value in CELL F111.

My problem is: How do I get the value in AB6 to go blank/return to zero if the code that triggered it in CELL A5 is removed.

Here's the formula I have:
=SUM(SUMIF(A6,{"HC","HL","HP","HE"}),(AA6/F111))

CELL A6 ................ CELL AA6 ...............CELL AB6
HP ..........................4...............................2

(F111 = 2)

So, currently, if I remove "HP" ... the value in cell AB6 remains. And I need it to return to zero.

Thanks to all!

Hi,

was your formula really doing what you intended (except your zero-problem) ?

this would be my suggestion
=IF(ISNA(MATCH(A6,{"HC","HL","HP","HE"})),0,(AA6/F111))

kind regards,
Erik

seems you didn't see Aladins formula

NOTE that my formula doesn't check if F111 is zero, while Aladin's formula does !
& I think ISNUMBER is faster then ISNA
so use Aladins formula

also you didn't need the brackets (you had in your formula which I copied)
=IF(ISNA(MATCH(A6,{"HC","HL","HP","HE"})),0,(AA6/F111))
this is enough
=IF(ISNA(MATCH(A6,{"HC","HL","HP","HE"})),0,AA6/F111)
