How to remove divide by zero errors (#DIV/0!) in Excel?
For example, we need to calculate the average price for each fruit by the formula of =D2/(C2-B2) as below screen shot shown. However, #DIV/0! errors come out when the value in Q2 column is equal to the value in Q1 column. So how to prevent or delete these divided by zero errors? There are several methods to get it done.

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.
Step 2: Then all errors in the selected range are selected as below screen shot shown, and delete these errors with pressing the Delete key.
Note: This method will select all errors in the selected range, including #N/A error, #DIV/0! error, and so on.
Actually, Kutools for Excel’s Error Condition Wizard utility can also delete all errors in a selected range with changing formulas automatically.
Step 1: Select the range that you will delete all errors, and click the Kutools > More > Error Condition Wizard.
Step 2: In the Error Condition Wizard dialog box, click the Error types box and select Any error value except #N/A from the drop down list; check Noting (a blank cell) in the Error display section, and click the OK button.
Now you will see all errors except the #N/A errors are replaced with blank as below screen shot shown:
Note: This method will delete all errors except the #N/A errors.
