In my worksheet I want to average the range(C5:C35), yet suppress the #Div/0 error. The code below is not working.
=if(ISERROR(Average(C5:C35),"",Average(C5:C35)))

The mistake in your original formula is the location of the bracket

=if(ISERROR(Average(C5:C35),"",Average(C5:C35)))
should be
=if(ISERROR(Average(C5:C35)),"",Average(C5:C35))
