The IFERROR() format is not available in Excel 97/2000 so if used will eliminate any chance of a coworker using Excel 2000 being able to use your spreadsheet file on his computer, and not all companies are consistent enough to upgrade ALL computer system software versions at the same time. The last place I was employed only had Excel 2000 available on the computer I used, but most of the front office computers had Excel 2010 installed and in use. This made it so many Excel spreadsheets somebody in the front office would create intending for me to use it on the computer in my area wouldn't work at all on my computer, but any spreadsheet application I wrote would load and run successfully on any computer in the front office.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
