Default !Zero Divide Error

I'm getting a divide by zero error using this formula =B3/C3. I read the
response from Doug Robbins saying to type the formula directly into the table
cell; the formula in the response was { IF { SUM (C3:E3) } = 0 0 { =
F3/SUM{C3:E3) } }, using Ctrl + F9 for each set of field brackets. I tried
adapting my formula as {If(B3/C3)=0 0 (B3/C3)} which didn't work. I tried
{If{(B3/C3)}=0 0 {(B3/C3)}} which didn't work either. What am I doing wrong?
Also, is there any way to assign a macro to a drawn object in Word? TIA!

Default !Zero Divide Error

Hi cottage6,

Try:
{=IF(C3=0,0,B3/C3)}

I don't quite understand what you mean by "assign a macro to a drawn object". Perhaps you could elaborate in a new thread.

Cheers
