Using IFERROR in Excel to Suppress Errors

by CAM on 10th November 2014 at 02:42 PM
I've been using Excel for years but I never knew about this one little formula that can save so much work. My predecessor has been using the ISERROR() function nested inside an IF() function to fill cells that return an error code as blank. This means if you have two columns of data that may not necessarily be filled, you can have a blank cell instead of #DIV/0, etc. A little tweak like this can improve readability quickly so you can quickly spot empty cells or not have to wade through errors if

A few updates

Quite a bit has happened since November...

First off my Kubuntu install fell apart after most of my games library was locked out regardless of WINE. The titles that did work with WINE were too big a pain to get working again and I just wanted my incredible gaming rig back! Since my Windows 7 CD Key was coming up invalid, I found myself forced to install Windows 8 and after an initial "I hate Metro" period it proved to be quite a usable OS...if you throw Metro out the window.

I've always had a soft spot for KDE, so when switching to Ubuntu on my primary home machine it was a no brainer to pick Kubuntu 12.10 over it's Unity-packing parent distro. So far the system has set itself up extremely quickly and given virtually no problems at all beyond a mouse cursor that refuses to stick to the style I tell it to, irritating but hardly a deal breaker. Given the last time I installed Ubuntu I was left seekign network drivers and spending hours getting a laptop to even start this

As a browser nomad, I find it hard to keep up-to-date with extensions and remembering to install even the basics when I jump from one browser to another. In the case of my work computer I have no say in the matter, but at home I have used no less then four different browsers since installing my OS. One extension I have routinely forgotten about is AdBlock, as you can probably tell from previous hilarious failures in targeted advertising.

Unfortunately the landscape of advertising

Moving Jobs

It has taken time for me to post this because I wanted to make sure everything was bedded down, calm and not influenced by the various emotional rollercoasters I have been on over the past week.

Currently I am a data assistant. At the end of the month I will be a data manager in a new school with a £5k pay rise, a scale going even higher and plenty of responsibility. And my own office. I don't care how small it is, I have my own office.

Of course, it comes at a cost!
