IfError with else does this function exist in Excel

0 votes

I ran into a circumstance where I needed the following Excel function:

=IFERROR(value, value_if_error, value_if_no_error)

In other words, I'm seeking an else-clause IFERROR() method.
The problem is, you could theoretically do it like this:

=IF(IFERROR(function(),error_value),value_if_error,value_if_no_error)

But what if function() could result in an error value? IFERROR() would be unable to be used since, for example, function() returns a string that may include anything, including an empty string, but also an error.

Next to IFERROR(), there also is the ISERROR() function, which can be used as an input for an IF()-clause:

=IF(ISERROR(value),value_if_error,value_if_no_error)
