#VALUE when saved in OneDrive


New Member

I have a workbook that works perfectly when saved locally. Even with hidden data and "Protect Sheet" enabled, all is well.

HOWEVER, when I save my workbook to OneDrive, and view the workbook online, all my functions return a [URL=https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=Value]#Value [/URL] error.

My worksheets have Review/Protect Sheet enabled with just a few cells unlocked to stop users I send the workbook to editing.
I do not think that Protection is the issue as if I turn off protection and resave, [URL=https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=Value]#Value [/URL] is still returned.

If I remove protection from Worksheet 1, and get a user to download it from OneDrive and save it locally, when they open it they are prompted to "Allow Editing", and all the Functions/Formulas snap into working.

Worksheet 2 Cell B87 (hidden)

Worksheet 1 Cell C4

Worksheet 1 Cell D4
=IF(C4>0,IF($C4='Sheet2'!$B$87,'Sheet2'!H13,0)," ")

All 3 of the above functions return [URL=https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=Value]#Value [/URL] in OneDrive

Any suggestions how I can get the functions/formulas to work when viewed online in OneDrive?

Whilst I don't use Excel Online, I don't think it supports the CELL function.
