I am running Libre office Version 18.104.22.168 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! . What is the trick to preventing the
display of aforementioned string.
o You shouldn't really think of suppressing the error message, but
instead of avoiding the error. (But that may be what you mean.) So
you could check the result of your formula using ISERR() or ISERROR()
and replace the message with whatever you prefer - possibly blank or
null. But I don't recommend this.
o How about correcting your data? If you want to do calculations on
it, the data really shouldn't have text values of any sort. (Are you
sure that blank cells are not automatically interpreted as zeroes in
a calculation?) It is quite easy to edit a spreadsheet to correct
problems such as this, even if there are hundreds of suspect values.
You could either modify the cell contents or simply create an
additional column or row containing the modified values.
o Alternatively, you can test for the presence of a genuine number
using the ISNUMBER() function. So
should do what you need.
I trust this helps.
