I am creating a 'weekly average spreadsheet' (Excel 2007) for a teacher. It has a column for each student's name and his test grade for each day (M-F). The last column gives his weekly average.

She also needs an average for all the students' for the week (vertically). My formula is correct, i.e., =AVERAGE(H2:H11). However, I'm getting a divide by zero error because I have some blank rows above my formula (so she can add new students' names as they come.

How can I get rid of the divide by zero error so she can see the running averages as she inputs grades (but still leaving empty rows for new names)?

Thanks so much for your help!

Thanks for any help offered in advance.

In the attached sheet, I have formula in cell b8 to find minimum of range ("b4:f4"). Since cell d4 has divide by zero error, not able to get the minimum. I think we can use iserror function to sense divide by zero error. Is there a way to write a formula in cell b8 to find the minimum of range ("b4:f4") that will avoid divide by zero cells in range("b4"f4"), without macros?

Appreciate your help.

nothing in the other cells, the divide by zero error won't allow me to gain a value in the cell with the sum function.

Please help,

Skip

=IF(SUM(C6/D6)=0,"",SUM(C6/D6))

I appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Thanks,

simplified formula reads:

=B12/(B12 + H12)

The problem is when H12 and B12 both = zero. Zero divided by zero = divide

by zero error.

The desired result, display 0%

I looked at the online help, and it gives me a sample formula, but for the

life of me, i just can't seem to get it to work out with 'my desired

result'...

help... please...

The other issues is that column C may not always contain the text CPHA

Any help would be much appreciated! (Pulling my hair out on this one!)

E20 and E22 , when left blank = value of 0, Therefore " Divide by Zero

Error " condition occure affecting the rest of the form.

example =sumif(E20,E22)=<0*(E2/E22)*167

The forumula looks like this, and it's on every line.

VB:The problem I'm running into is that it chokes if I haven't entered the price for a place.=SUMIF(C3:D3,"="&MIN(C3:D3))/COUNTIF(C3:D3,"="&MIN(C3:D3))*B3If you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

I.E. if I have no price for shoes at the Grocery store (not sold there) and I haven't put in a price for Sams then it tries to divide by zero and gives an error.

I'd like to have all of the zeroes (or blank cells) ignored. Is that possible?

Thanks!

VB:But if I get a Zero or if I divide by zero I get and error. The result from C2/A2 is summed in a nother column, and i cant get it to sum because i get the error "#DIV/0!". I have tried everything, but i do not know how to get rid of it. Thanks for your help.=C2/A2If you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

but hopefully you get the gist! User entry actual figure is only

entered obviously when there is a figure so alot of the time will be

blank or zero the fixed value target is always on the sheet and the

percentage is basically how much percent of the target has been

acheived which is a pct value.

Is there anyway of substituting a zero in when you have a pct divided

by zero as normally it just comes up with the error message

ie

USER ENTRY ACTUAL FIGURE FIXED VALUE TARGET PERCENTAGE

5 B1/A1%

There is no user entry until a value needs to be input and until that

point the pct always shows up with the error message, I'd prefer a

zero, cosmetics I know but would be curious to know.

Currently get:

USER ENTRY ACTUAL FIGURE FIXED VALUE TARGET PERCENTAGE

5

NULLyadayadacannotdividebyzeroerrormsg

Would prefer:

USER ENTRY ACTUAL FIGURE FIXED VALUE TARGET PERCENTAGE

5

0%

Obviously as soon as a user entry does appear then the formula should

alter as usual and display standard percentage

USER ENTRY ACTUAL FIGURE FIXED VALUE TARGET PERCENTAGE

5 5 100%

I have lots of #DIV/0!.

This is the display you get when you have value divide by zero,

I want to eliminate to display this error when i open the sheet.

Basically when i go to the sheet with #DIV/0! then it needs to show blank with the formula

in the cell.

Is there a solution for this.

Thanks and looking forward for help.

I have an irritating problem. I am trying to do a seemingly simple division of 2 numbers, both declared as 'Long' variables. The first variable 'Itotal' represents the number of rows that contain a certain a certain piece of information.

Dim Itotal As Long Itotal = WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("M3:M50"), M04Input.Index)

I then delete some of these rows with some other code and then find how many rows are left containing the same piece of information:

Dim Ileft As Long Ileft = WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("M3:M50"), M04Input.Index)Finally I want to calculate the number of rows that are left as a proportion of the originals.

Dim Icomplete As Long Icomplete = (Ileft / Itotal)I've inserted several debug statements in the code and the 'Itotal' and 'Ileft' variables seem to be calculated ok. In the run I've just done 'Ileft' was 14 and 'Itotal' was 15. However I get an error statement relating to the final part of the code telling me that I'm trying to divide by zero. Clearly I'm not so why is this going wrong?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

When using formulas the following message appears if you try to divide by zero:

#DIV/0!

Is there anyway of fixing it so that if the denominator is zero, the equation will equal zero

ie.

Range("A3") = "=10/$C$3"

if C3 contained a zero then I would like the contents of A3 to contain a zero.

If anyone knows this one they are a genius!

Thanks

Mike

So everyone knows that when you have a number divided by zero, the result is undefined, and I'm having trouble working around that.

This is the function I wrote:

VB:Looks like a good function. In fact, it works for all concentration values and factor values as long as the factor is not zero, otherwise the value "calculation" would be undefined.Single calculation = conc / factor End FunctionIf you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

I was thinking of writing an "if" statement testing the value of the "factor" before calculating the function. If the value of the "factor" is zero, I'd like the value of calculation just to show up as zero.

Any ideas?

Any help would be greatly, greatly, greatly appreciated! =D

in column E i need to add a formula:

VB:And i would be extending it to the rows below.=($C2 - $B2)/$C2If you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

Now, obviously, if C2 contains a 0, it gives a divide by 0 error. How to modify the formula which makes it valid only if C2!=0(not equal to 0)

Thanks,

Ken

For example:

2006 Sales: 0

2007 Sales: 10,000

It would show the correct % increase in sales.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

anything that is divide by zero will get #DIV/0!. how can I show the result

ias zero insted?

ias zero insted?

I have this equation

Private Sub Cal_btn_Click() ThreePh_FC.Value = ((MVA_Base * 1000000) / ((3 ^ 0.5) * kV_Base * 1000)) / ((XCab_Pos * (Length / 10000000) / (((kV_Base * 1000) ^ 2) / (MVA_Base * 1000000))) + _ ((MVA_Base * 1000000) / ((3 ^ 0.5) * kV_Base * 1000 * If_3ph))) 'OnePh_FC = ((3 * MVA_Base * 1000000) / _ ((3 ^ 0.5) * kV_Base * 1000)) / Ztotal_1Ph End SubMy Question ;

1. If the user enter kV_Base = 0, then error msg came out. Division by zero. How to prevent the user to key in kV_Base = 0

2. And also, how to prevent user to key-in alphabet?

3 If there is any error (e.g above error) occur, is it possible to give the user an alarm or locked the button instead of return to the debug/VB error msg

4. If you refer to my attachment/code, at (Length / 10000000).If i use my calculator, there is no need to include 10000000. Initially it suppose to be 'length' only. But the answer need to devide by 10000000. Then I insert 10000000 to get the same answer as my calculator.

5. How to name an arry. I.e Colum A refer to People name (eg Smith, Dean, John) and the row 1 refer to Monday till row 7 refer to Sunday.

Thanks guys for reading my questions!!!
