I have a few formulas that I need to eliminate the #DIV?0 message and for the life of me I cannot get the thing to work. I've looked at the old messages and nothing has sunk in. Help please.

=IF(M8>P8,M8-(L8/2),P8-(O8/2))

=IF(M8>P8,L8/2,O8/2)

=(F8*$D$3)/(D8+E8)

Thank you in advance.
 

Excel Facts

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.
I get an error message with this?

=IF(ISERROR((M8>P8,M8-(L8/2),P8-(O8/2)),"",(m8>p8,m8-(l8/2),p8-(o8/2))

The first formula should not return #DIV/0!. If it does, then there is already at least one #DIV/0! in one of the cells the formula is referencing.

The foregoing also holds for the second formula.

The third formula would return such error if D8+E8 is 0 or the foregoing stipulation holds.

What formulas do you have in the cells these formulas refer to?

This works but gives the #DIV/0! message when there is no entries with this formula which does work. but I get an error message when I try to add the ISERROR statement???

This works
=IF(M8>P8,M8-(L8/2),P8-(O8/2))

This does not...
=IF(ISERROR((M8>P8,M8-(L8/2),P8-(O8/2)),"",(m8>p8,m8-(l8/2),p8-(o8/2))

help please

With my limited no how it appears you are mixing up arguments.

Perhaps a different tack like

=IF(ISBLANK(E8),"",IF(M8>P8,M8-(L8/2),P8-(8/2)))

I could not ascertain (don't know how to export your sheet to my excel file) which cell, triggered calculations in other cells so selected E8.

Hope this helps and if someone can tell me how to export the HTML sheet above to excel would be appreciated.
