#N/A

The #N/A error value is short for “not available,” and it means that the formula couldn't return a legitimate result. You usually see #N/A when you use an inappropriate argument (or if you omit a required argument) in a function. HLOOKUP() and VLOOKUP(), for example, return #N/A if the lookup value is smaller than the first value in the lookup range.

To solve the problem, first check the formula's input cells to see if any of them are displaying the #N/A error. If so, that's why your formula is returning the same error; the problem actually lies in the input cell. When you've found where the error originates, examine the formula's operands to look for inappropriate data types. In particular, check the arguments used in each function to ensure that they make sense for the function and that no required arguments are missing.
