IFERROR will nor work in excel 2003. It works in excel 2007 & 2010

Use IF and ISERROR in combination

you need to use the IF() and ISERR() combination for #DIV/0 or #REF error's
if you get #N/A then you need to use ISNA() function....

i.e.:  =IF(ISERR(a1+b1),0,a1+b1) or IF(ISNA(a1+b1),"Null",a1+b1)
