Excel formula not updating automatically
“Trial and Error” has to be the most effective ways to learn something new. This will print “not found” whenever the vlookup returns any error (including #N/A) This is rare error. This is number error that you see when your formula returns a value bigger than what excel can represent.
This has a similar effect to manually selecting a cell, clicking in formula bar and pressing the Enter key, to recalculate the cell. First press ctrl Z and undo the actions you have performed. You see a cell full of # symbols when the contents cannot fit in the cell. a long number like 2339432094394 entered in a small cell will show ####s. And if the error is due to negative dates, make them positive. If you are using functions that work on numbers (like sum, sumproduct etc.) then the parameters should be numbers. In this case, the workbook calculation was set to Automatic on all the machines – that’s the first thing we checked.To check the setting, click the Formulas tab on the Excel Ribbon, and click the Calculate Options drop down.
