1. ## If isblank or equals zero

Hi guys,

I hope you can help,

IÂm trying to achieve something here that I just canÂt seem to get my head around.

I want it to work out what i8/i7 is, but only if both of them have a value. I have a working formula for that. =IF(OR(ISBLANK(I7),ISBLANK(I8)),,I8/I7)

However when theyÂre both showing 0, it returns #DIV/0! Because it canÂt divide two zeros.

How can I put if I7 or I8 is blank or if I7+I8=0, ignore the formula otherwise do I8/I7?

Ultimately, I would like a formula that says if either cell is blank show 0, if the sum of both are equal to or less than 0, show 0, if they total more than 0, show the number.

Is this possible or am I asking too much?

I hope this makes sense.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.  Reply With Quote

Hi Asw091,

Here's two possibilities, I'm sure there's more:

=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(I7)=FALSE,ISNUMBER(I8)=FALSE),0,I8/I7)
=IFERROR(I8/I7,0)

It is the bottom number that cannot be 0 (dividing by 0 is undefined)... the top number is immaterial. So you might consider doing it this way...

Another possibility maybe...

=IF(I7=0,"",I8/I7)

🤯 no way. Talk about over thinking it..
