For any error to be highlighted you can use this formula in CF

=ISERROR(A1)

or for specifically #VALUE! try

=ERROR.TYPE(A1)=3

Conditional formating

Fomula is     =ISERROR(B11) 'where B11 is the range you want to check for #NA

kind regards

In the attached I used the ISERROR version in column A but ERROR.TYPE to isolate #VALUE errors in column B
