How can cells with formulas "=#N/A" have values?

In the attached workbook. Sheet=Master. In rows 96 to 108 Column E and Column G has formulas "=#N/A" in them. They display values. Can you explain that please?

These are the last values Excel had available before the formula got destroyed probably because it refers to a missing add-in or a query that is not longer available  (or perhaps it was created using a non-excel spreadsheet and the formula was not converted on save).

Given the name of the Tab I would guess this sheet brought information from other sheets and something in the formula got broken Excel can't re-evaluate the data so it just shows the last value it had available.

Usually, that means the formulas contained functions that are part of an add-in that's not available (like Analysis Toolpack Add-in, for ex), or that is available and conflicts with Excel functions.

HTH,

Looks like they need to be recalculated. If you go into each  cell, press F2 and then enter, the displayed value changes to #N/A.

However, pressing F9 doesn't appear to do anything.

Make sure that you have Automatic calculations set on in the Formulas Tab/Calculation Options section.

I find it sometimes makes a difference by formatting.

Suppose you want to add some numbers in the a column, but want to show the results in B1

In the B1 field, you type "=SUM(A1:A10)", and the A cells are formatted differently than the B cells, you may get this error.
