# #DivideBYZero

✭✭✭✭✭✭

Good morning, I have this formula that is displaying this error as noting is filled out yet in the columns

How to I not get this error and just have a 0 or leave it blank so it does not look bad? Thank you

=SUM(BAE@row / (([HRS/Day]@row) * [Crew Size]@row))

I don't know why you are summing it.. as the math is occurring on a row by row basis.. but anyway..

I think this gives you what you want.. checking for no value before doing the calculation..

=IF(OR([HRS/Day]@row = 0, [Crew Size]@row = 0), "", BAE@row / ([HRS/Day]@row * [Crew Size]@row))

It will leave a blank in the Duration Calculation until filled in.. You can change this to Zero by simply

=IF(OR([HRS/Day]@row = 0, [Crew Size]@row = 0), 0, BAE@row / ([HRS/Day]@row * [Crew Size]@row))
