    Hiding errors (2002)

    I've seen someplace a way to hide error messages (ie N/A, #DIV/0! etc) using conditional formatting - but can't remember where I saw it and what the formula was to do it - any body out there know the answer?

    Highlight the range of interest (eg A1:F100)
    format - Condi Formating
    formula is (no quotes)
    "=iserror(A1)"
    <format>
    [Change the text color to match the background color]
    <ok><ok>

    [Unless it is black on black or white on white, it will not hide it during printing from most B/W printers]

    Change your formula

    Example: instead of the formula = AVERAGE(A1:A10) enter like the following: =IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(A1:A10)),"",AVERAGE(A1:A10))
