=IFERROR(SUM(($B$34)/($B$33)),"0")
=IFERROR(SUM(($B$34)/($B$33)),"END OF MONTH")
=IFERROR(SUM(($B$34)/($B$33)),0)


These all get the error #NAME?

Why?

It looks like each of these have a non-breaking space (&nbsp) at the end so I'm assuming you copied the formula from a webpage and unintentionally included a space.  This space is not the same character as the one produced when hitting the spacebar on your keyboard.  Just delete that extra space after the last parenthesis and your formula should work.

Hi
I copied and pasted from my spreadsheet directly onto here

=IFERROR(SUM(($B$34)/($B$33)),0)
=IFERROR(SUM(($B$34)/($B$33)),"0")
=IFERROR(SUM(($B$34)/($B$33)),"END OF MONTH")

Both dont work

Please try:

=if(iserror(SUM(($B$34)/($B$33))),0)

SUM function isn't required here, lets remove that for a start so you are left with

=$B$34/$B$33

Now that will only give you a #DIV/0 error if the divisor (B33 here) is zero or blank, so you can check that

=IF($B$33=0,0,$B$34/$B$33)

IFERROR is only available in Excel 2007 and later - in earlier versions you'll get #NAME? error, my suggestion will work in any version of Excel
