If I have the formula, =B8/C8*D8*F8 and the sum is zero it gives me #DIV/0!. What do I have to add to have that cell read zero?

Hi,

the message is quite clear, you are dividing by 0. You need to check the content of C8 and make sure it is not 0. Because just about any number divided by 0 will not be 0.

Hi,

how about using an if clause? =if(C8=0,0,B8/C8*D8*F8)
