Excel #Value error in Asia but not in the US

Davisro asked
Last Modified: 2015-11-04
I have a workbook managed in our Asia office that produces a #Value error in many columns but when they send the workbook to me in the US, I can't reproduce the problem. All of the columns in question have formulas that reference other columns on the same sheet.

My understanding is that #Value errors happen when you have a arithmetical formula referencing cells that are formatted as text, but i dont see that happening here...is there another reason this could happen?
