Given below are the common MS-excel errors and the different ways in which you can fix them:

  • #VALUE!

The #VALUE! Error occurs when there are spaces, characters, or text in a formula where there should be a number. In Excel, formulas should contain numbers only and it will not respond to formulas if you have entered anything else. The easy solution for this issue is you should double check the formula you have entered and make sure you have used only numbers. You should also check for blank cells, missing formulas or if you have used any special characters.

  • #NAME?

‘#NAME?’ error occurs if Excel is unable to understand the name of the formula you have tried to run. It is also possible if Excel is not able to compute one or more values entered in the formula. In order to resolve this error, check the spelling of the formula or use the Formula Builder to let the Excel build the function for you.

  • #####

This error is displayed when the column is not wide enough to display the value you have entered. To resolve this error click on the right border of the column header and increase the width of the column.

  • #DIV/0!

This error can be seen when Excel is asked to divide a formula by zero or an empty cell. To resolve this error, you can change the value of the cell to a value that is not equal to zero or add in a value if your cell was blank. 

  • #REF!

This error can be usually seen when a formula references a cell that is not valid. The error implies you have mistakenly deleted or pasted over a cell that was used in your formula. To resolve this error make sure there are no formulas that refer to the cells you are deleting before you paste over a set of cells. Also, while deleting cells it is important to double check the formulas referred in those cells.

  • #NULL!

This error occurs when you have specified an intersection of two areas that do not actually intersect or when you have used an incorrect range operator. To fix this error, make sure you are using the correct syntax in your formula.

  • #N/A

!This error usually means that the numbers you are referring to in your formula cannot be found. It is also possible that you may have accidentally deleted a number or row that is being used in your formula or are referring to a sheet that was deleted. To resolve this error check the formulas and the sheets which you may have been deleted by mistake.
