    I have a worksheet where I am populating data with a ISNA - VLOOKUP formula. I am trying to put in a check to ensure that the sum of the % is 100% and the sum of the allocated dollars equals the Gross amount. However, I keep getting a #VALUE! in the check cells. I assume it is because my populating formulas are not allowing the check cells to calculate properly. Any ideas how to correct this.

    I am including a spread sheet with the formulas on the populating cells.

    Thank you.

    MNN,

    If the formulas in D,E,G,H are calculating properly the only thing I can think of to try would to move your check columns to the RIGHT of those cells and see if it is a calculation order problem, .i.e., Excel tries to calculate B & C before calculating the cells they depend on, especially with the off workbook references.

    Since you may have text you should use something like
    =SUM(E3,H3)

    Instead of
    =E3+H3

    The SUM will ignore Text, the "+" expects each value to be a number so will give a #VALUE error if ANY of them are text.
