I have a calculated column called SUID # that pulls the value from a single line text input called SUID. The formula in SUID # is:


If SUID is blank, the SUID # column will show #VALUE!

Is it possible to change that error text? I would like it to say "Please Enter the SUID Only on Package Pickup"

It'd be something like this:

=IF(ISERROR(RIGHT(LEFT(SUID,INT(FIND("=",SUID)-1)),LEN(LEFT(SUID,INT(FIND("=",SUID)-1)))-1)),"Please Enter the SUID Only on Package Pickup",RIGHT(LEFT(SUID,INT(FIND("=",SUID)-1)),LEN(LEFT(SUID,INT(FIND("=",SUID)-1)))-1))


  • This is perfect. I was trying that ISERROR syntax earlier, but couldn't get it right. Thank you! Dec 18, 2014 at 15:34

  • @ArsalanAdamKhatri Since I'm a new user, I have a 5 minute wait time to be able to close the question. I think that is a bit ridiculous, but it can't be helped. Dec 18, 2014 at 15:36
  • ^ Yes I observed that feature in the beginning.. I'm sure there will be strong reason for it.. Some new users usually leave the question open even when answered, and closing questions can only be done by questioner so thanks.. :) Dec 18, 2014 at 15:40
