I need a SUM formula to look at E1:E400 and ignore "#N/A" and "#VALUE!" errors and sum the rest of the valid numbers in that column.

    SUMIF ignores errors in the sum range so you just have to set the criteria so that all numbers are summed.

    If you only have positive numbers in that range it would be sufficient to use


    but in the version I used 9.99E+307 is a very large number (almost the biggest you can get in Excel), so SUMIF sums everything that's less than that, should be any number including negative numbers
