    Hi @pmolloy,

    Add an IFERROR round your current formula.

    For example, if you want the cells that currently have the error to be blank instead:

    =IFERROR([Margin $]@row / [Forecast Amount $]@row, "")

    If you want another outcome, amend the final "" portion.

    Hope this helps, but if you've any problems/questions then just ask.
