Tip #103 – Excel

Excel: What is your Problem?

This is not the most exciting tip I’ve ever put out (and I know some of them are downright spine-tingling!) but sometimes a tip can be helpful by – not telling you what to do…but by telling you what not to do. Below is a list of the most common error messages that you see in Excel; what they mean – and how to fix them fast.


NOTE: When you see an error indicator in a cell you’ll also likely see an error alert (a little green triangle in the upper-left corner of the cell). If you click on the cell then just hover over the green triangle – it will tell you what the problem is. Some of these pop-ups are clear…some are so unclear – they’re not worth the effort to read (yeah…I’m talking about YOU little Mr. #NULL!).
