# Thread: Summing a range with errors in it

1. If I have a range that has for example #VALUE! and numbers in a range is there any way of summing the range and for it not to error, but give the sum of the numbers?

2. Someone helped me with a similar problem I was having with #N/A.
You might try this:
=SUMIF(A1:A100,"<>#VALUE")

If it worked for #N/A, I would think it would work for #VALUE

Hope it helps

3. that formula works, but remember its #value! not just #value

If it's not beyond your control to have errors like #VALUE!, #DIV/0!, or #REF!, I'd suggest to hunt them down and eliminate their causes (excepting perhaps #N/A in the process, otherwise use for a range with different types of error the following array-formula:

=SUM(IF(NOT(ISERROR(A1:A6)),A1:A6))

To array-enter a formula, you need to hit control+shift+enter at the same time, not just enter.
