PRJ2000: #ERROR Value in a Cell
Method 1: Values Are Greater Than the Maximum Value AllowedIf you use a formula and the #ERROR value is displayed because values are greater than the maximum value allowed in a field, divide the result of the formula to reduce the values of the numbers below the limit.
For example, if you have a formula in the Duration1 field that equals the Duration field multiplied by 35,000, the Duration field equals #ERROR if the value in the Duration1 field is greater than 72,270 days. You can divide the value by a factor, such as 100, to maintain values that are below the maximum of 72,270. You would need to note that the values in this field are 100 times greater than what is displayed. The following is an example of this:
Method 2: Division by ZeroIf you use a formula and the #ERROR value is displayed because a function is dividing a value by zero, use the IIF function to display a value that you choose instead of the #ERROR value.
For example, if you have a custom function in the Number1 field that divides cost by actual cost, you receive the #ERROR value when the Actual Cost field equals zero. You can use an IIF function to display zero when the Actual Cost field equals zero, and display the value of cost divided by actual cost when the Actual Cost field is not zero. The following is an example of this:
