Handling a error properly

Greetings EE Pros!

I have a WB with several WSs that when  I reset my data input, I get a #/Div0 error.  That's because the cells making a calculation are cleared and I have a divide by blank or -0- situation.  In order to properly handle it, I began by using an "If/Then" condition but that didn't result in getting the error and displaying either blank "", or -0-.  Then I tried Iferror but also didn't get a remedy for having #/Div0 not displayed when the error occurs.  What is the simple formula to trap the error and then display either blank or -0-?

Thank you!

IFERROR and, in early versions, IF/ISERROR, are what you should use for this.

What exactly did you try?

The general syntax for IFERROR is this:

=IFERROR(yourformula, resultiferror)

The general syntax for IF/ISERROR is this:

=IF(ISERROR(yourformula), resultiferror, yourformula)
