Cell Error Values

You can insert a cell error value into a cell or test the value of a cell for an error value by using the CVErr function. The cell error values can be one of the following XlCVError constants.

Constant Error number Cell error value
xlErrDiv0 2007 #DIV/0!
xlErrNA 2042 #N/A
xlErrName 2029 #NAME?
xlErrNull 2000 #NULL!
xlErrNum 2036 #NUM!
xlErrRef 2023 #REF!
xlErrValue 2015 #VALUE!

Example

This example inserts the seven cell error values into cells A1:A7 on Sheet1.

myArray = Array(xlErrDiv0, xlErrNA, xlErrName, xlErrNull, _ 
 xlErrNum, xlErrRef, xlErrValue) 
For i = 1 To 7 
 Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(i, 1).Value = CVErr(myArray(i - 1)) 
Next i

This example displays a message if the active cell on Sheet1 contains a cell error value. You can use this example as a framework for a cell-error-value error handler.

Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate 
If IsError(ActiveCell.Value) Then 
 errval = ActiveCell.Value 
 Select Case errval 
 Case CVErr(xlErrDiv0) 
 MsgBox "#DIV/0! error" 
 Case CVErr(xlErrNA) 
 MsgBox "#N/A error" 
 Case CVErr(xlErrName) 
 MsgBox "#NAME? error" 
 Case CVErr(xlErrNull) 
 MsgBox "#NULL! error" 
 Case CVErr(xlErrNum) 
 MsgBox "#NUM! error" 
 Case CVErr(xlErrRef) 
 MsgBox "#REF! error" 
 Case CVErr(xlErrValue) 
 MsgBox "#VALUE! error" 
 Case Else 
 MsgBox "This should never happen!!" 
 End Select 
End If
