Hi All ..

Having a problem here that is becoming a real PITA situation .

I am running Libre office Version on Arch Linux

I have a lot of cells with this or similar in

the problem is that if either D10 or K10 is blank  the result is displayed as
#VALUE!   that means several hundred times not only is it a pain but it mucks the
printing up as well the results do not look good covered in #VALUE!  .

If the cells are really empty, that should not happen. I guess, that the cells are not empty, but contain a "Blank"-character or an empty string. In that case Calc tells you, that it cannot calculate with text.

What is the trick to preventing the display of aforementioned  string

You can force the cell entries to be treated as numbers in a way, that text is treated a zero. That is done automatically if you use functions with an array as parameter oder explicitly with the function N.

=IF( N(D10)-N(K10)>0; N(D10)-N(K10);"")

For me the delimiter is a semicolon, I'm not sure about your comma as delimiter.

Kind regards


Pete .
