The `IFERROR`

function in Microsoft Excel is a useful tool that allows you to handle errors that may occur in a formula. It is a handy function to use when you want to display a custom message or value if an error occurs, rather than the default error message.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to use the `IFERROR`

function in Microsoft Excel:

- Open a new or existing spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel.
- Select the cell where you want to enter the
`IFERROR`

function. - Type the
`=IFERROR(`

formula and press the`Enter`

key. - In the
`IFERROR`

formula, enter the formula or function that may return an error as the first argument. - Enter the value or text string that you want to display if an error occurs as the second argument.
- Press the
`Enter`

key to complete the`IFERROR`

function.

Here is an example of an `IFERROR`

formula:

`=IFERROR(A1/B1, "Error occurred")`

This formula divides the value in cell `A1`

by the value in cell `B1`

. If an error occurs, such as a division by zero error, the text string “Error occurred” is displayed in the selected cell.

You can also use the `IFERROR`

function to display a custom value if an error occurs. For example, if you want to display the value 0 if an error occurs, you can use the following `IFERROR`

formula:

`=IFERROR(A1/B1, 0)`

This formula divides the value in cell `A1`

by the value in cell `B1`

. If an error occurs, the value 0 is displayed in the selected cell.

In addition to displaying a custom message or value if an error occurs, you can also use the `IFERROR`

function to ignore errors and display the result of the formula or function. To do this, you can use the `VALUE`

function as the second argument in the `IFERROR`

formula.

Here is an example of an `IFERROR`

formula that ignores errors and displays the result of the formula:

`=IFERROR(A1/B1, VALUE(A1/B1))`

This formula divides the value in cell `A1`

by the value in cell `B1`

. If an error occurs, the `VALUE`

function is used to convert the result of the formula to a number and the result is displayed in the selected cell.

I hope this tutorial helps you understand how to use the `IFERROR`

function in Microsoft Excel. It is a useful tool that can help you handle errors and display custom messages or values if an error occurs.
