How to remove divide by zero errors (#DIV/0!) in Excel?

The formula of =D2/(C2-B2) will return the #DIV!/0 error if Cell C2 is equal to Cell B2. So we can estimate this formula with the IFERROR function to avoid the #DIV/0! error. You can do as follows:

In the Cell E2 enter the formula =IFERROR(D2/(C2-B2),""), and then drag the Fill Handle to the Range E2:E15.

Then you will see the #DIV/0! errors are prevented and shown as blank. See below screen shot:

Note: In this example we apply the formula of =IFERROR(D2/(C2-B2),"") to prevent the #DIV/0! errors. But different conditions require different formulas, and it may be complicated to prevent the #DIV/0! errors by formulas. Therefore, we introduce the following methods to remove #DIV/0! errors.
