When you see hashtags on Twitter or Facebook, they seem fantastic, but when you see them in an Excel sheet, you know you’re in danger. Yes, in this article, we’ll go through some of the most vexing Excel problems. Hopefully, after reading this post, you will understand the reason for the mistake and how to fix it.

1. ###### Error

This is one of the most common and straightforward Excel errors to correct. It isn’t a mathematical error, although it does happen when the column width is too narrow. For example, Figure 15000000 is too large and the column width is too narrow in excel, resulting in an error. The mistake vanishes when the width of the column is increased.

2. Name Error (#NAME?)

When Excel is unable to detect the text in the formula, this error occurs. For example, instead of writing SUM, you put SU, which is why we see the #NAME? in the respective column. You’ll see that after changing the formula to, let’s say, =SUM (A1:A4), you receive the proper result.

3. Value Error (#VALUE!)

When a variable in a calculation is incorrect, Excel displays a Value error. When a value is not of the intended type, the #VALUE! error shows. When cells are left blank, a function that expects a number is given a text value, and Excel treats dates as text, this can happen. It’s typically merely a question of entering the proper sort of value to fix a #VALUE! problem. You will get the proper solution without any mistakes if you adjust the formula for desired columns.

4. Division Error (#DIV?0!)

This is an easy concept to remember. When attempting to divide an integer by zero, the #DIV/0! error will appear. When a formula tries to divide by zero or a value equal to zero, the #DIV/0! error displays. Although an attempt to divide by zero causes a #DIV/0! error, it can also occur in other formulae that reference cells with the #DIV/0! error.

5. Null Error (#NULL!)

One of the most typical forms of error is this one. When you fail to appropriately separate the two cell references, you will see this error. When you input the range name improperly, refer to a deleted range name, or neglect to add quotation marks around a text string in a formula, you receive the #NULL error in Excel. It can also happen if you define an intersection of two regions that don’t meet, or if you employ the wrong range operator. You will achieve your desired result without any errors if you add an appropriate command between the two cell references.

6. Reference Error (#REF!)

A Reference Error appears when your formula has certain improper cell references. This usually occurs when you remove a row or column by accident. When a formula refers to a cell that isn’t valid, the #REF! error appears. This occurs most frequently when formula-referenced cells are erased or copied over.

Practical application of these errors is of utmost importance to master them. Watching some Excel training videos also helps in bringing fruitful results. Hence, they are highly recommended.
