Excel VBA: cell error value

The cell error value can be inserted into the cell, or the CVErr function can be used to test whether the cell value is an error value. The cell error value can be one of the following XlCVError constants.


error number

cell error values



0 # DIV /!
xlErrNA 2042 #N/A

Excel VBA tutorial: Cell error values · Examples
This example inserts seven cell error values into the A1:A7 cell area of 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 checks whether the active cell in Sheet1 contains a cell error value and, if so, displays a message. This example serves as a model structure for error handlers for cell error values.

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
