Audit a Worksheet for Errors
On occasion, you may see an error message, such as #DIV/0! or #NAME?, in your Excel worksheet.
If you do, you should double-check your formula references to ensure that you included
the correct cells. Locating the source of an error can be difficult, however, especially in larger
worksheets. Fortunately, if an error occurs in your worksheet, you can use Excel’s Formula Auditing
tools — namely, Error Checking and Trace Error — to examine and correct formula errors. For more
information on types of errors and how to resolve them, see the table in the tip.
