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.


IF #DIV/0! errors have appeared in your range, and you can’t change your formulas, you can apply Kutools for Excel’s Select Cells with Error Value utility to select all errors and delete them in Excel.

Step 1: Select the Range that you will select all errors, and click the Kutools > Select > Select Cells with Error Value.
