Expanding my IF statement

Folks,
Below you will see in the formula bar an IF statement that is not getting what I would like.
#DIV/0! errorMy objective is this:
If there's a #DIV/0! error in cell O6, in cell P6 I would like to do this:
Replace the #DIV/0! in cell O6 with "Error" and in P6 have a remark saying "Please refer to Remarks". If no #DIV/0! error in O6 then in P6 have a remark saying "OK"

The first part should be:
=IFERROR(AVERAGE(N6:N10),"Error")

Try that and see if returns what your looking for

My pleasure, however, I spoke a little early. I'm having a problem still but haven't figured out how to solve it yet

Try this formula
=IF(OR(O6="",O6=0), " ", IF(O6=AVERAGE(N6:N10),"Correct","Incorrect"))

You're a good man Martin. This problem was just solved with my last post. I've decided to move away from the Correct/Incorrect.
However, I was preparing another post to you regarding printing we spoke of the other day.

Consider changing your Worksheet_Activate events to something like this (for the AVERAGE sheet).
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
With Worksheets("Average")
    .Range("O6").ClearContents
    .Range("N6") = 8
    .Range("N7") = 7
    .Range("N8") = 9
    .Range("N9") = 6
    .Range("N10") = 10
End With
ActiveSheet.Range("O6").Select
End Sub

Open in new window

And instead of putting that code in the Activate event and the TryAgain sub change the Activate event to
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
    TryAgain
    ActiveSheet.Range("O6").Select
End Sub

Open in new window

I know. My last two posts are just suggestions about what you could do when refreshing the sheet so that the data you put there would show up again after the user fooled around, left the sheet and came back, or clicked the TryAgain button. If however you were going to leave N6:N10 blank then my suggestions don't apply and in that case you might as well get rid of the TryAgain buttons.

OK...now I understand and  I like the idea of first providing data they can work with. I think I'll keep the Try Again forcing them to reenter the formula (of course they could simply change the values and it recalculates automatically, unless I disabled automatic recalc for each sheet. Then I would have to .......rats Martin! I'm making things hard for me. I'll have to rest on this.
