Didn't work with "" (#VALUE) or 0 (0), but this did (for #N/A for graph trend):

Thanks for the tip! Though I also had to use 0 instead of "" - was getting #VALUE error otherwise.

For the array formula version, I think using {=SUM(IFERROR(A1:C6),0)} is slightly more preferable as it's a little cleaner.
