# Excel: How to Use IFERROR Then Blank

You can use the following methods in Excel to return a blank value instead of an error value when a valid value isn’t returned from a formula:

Method 1: IFERROR Then Blank with Some Formula

```=IFERROR(B2/A2, "")
```

Method 2: IFERROR Then Blank with VLOOKUP

```=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(E2, \$A\$2:\$C\$12, 3, FALSE), "")
```

The following examples show how to use each method in practice.

### Example 1: IFERROR Then Blank with Some Formula

Suppose we use the following formula to divide the values in column B by the values in column A in this particular Excel spreadsheet:

`=B2/A2`

Notice that for each cell in column C where we attempt to divide by a blank value, we receive #DIV/0! as a result.

To return a blank value instead of an error value, we can type the following formula into cell C2:

`=IFERROR(A2/B2, "")`

We can then copy and paste this formula down to every remaining cell in column C:

Now for each cell in column C where we attempt to divide by a blank value, we simply receive a blank value as a result.

### Example 2: IFERROR Then Blank with VLOOKUP

Suppose we use the following VLOOKUP formula to look up the player name in column A and return the rebounds value in column C:

`VLOOKUP(F2, \$A\$2:\$C\$12, 3, FALSE)`

Notice that for each cell in column G where we encounter an empty value in the VLOOKUP function, we receive #N/A as a result.

To return a blank value instead of a #N/A value, we can type the following formula into cell F2:

`=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(F2, \$A\$2:\$C\$12, 3, FALSE), "")`

We can then copy and paste this formula down to every remaining cell in column F:

Now for each cell where we encounter an empty value in the VLOOKUP function, we simply receive a blank value as a result.
