What do errors in geography mean

Correcting a #FIELD! #BLOCKED!

The #FIELD! Error occurs in the following circumstances:

  • The referenced field is missing from a linked data type.

  • The referenced field does not apply to the linked data type, so it does not exist.

  • The referenced field is paraphrase protected, so it cannot be inserted into the grid.

  • The referenced field is in a format Excel could not read.

  • The referenced cell does not contain an associated data type.

Insert a table column

If a new column tries to reference a field from a data type record, but the record does not contain data for that particular field, #FIELD! error occurs. If you z. For example, if you added a column to show the stock expense ratios, but the stock record does not have expense ratios in the first position, the result is #FIELD !.

Solutions:

  • With error checking enabled, click the floatie error in the cell on the left and select the option Ignore errors out.

  • Remove the column and replace it with a new column that points to a field that contains data.

If you like a formula = Enter A1. placeor = FIELD VALUE (A1; "Location")and cell A1 does not use the "Geography" data type, but #FIELD! error occurs. Likewise if you like a formula = Create A1. Priceor = FIELD VALUE (A1; "Price")and cell A1 do not use the stocks data type, then the error occurs.

This can also happen when a formula references a field of a data type, but the data type does not contain data for that particular field. For example, if you have a formula like = Entered A1. ExpenseRatioor = FIELD VALUE (A1; "Expense Ratio"), but the particular share has no expense ratio in the first place, the result is #FIELD !.

Solutions:

  • With error checking enabled, click the floatie error in the cell on the left and select the option Ignore errors out.

  • Delete the formula.

There are two main reasons for this error:

  • If the image that Excel tries to retrieve is missing some important information, it cannot be displayed and results in a #FIELD! displayed.

  • You are referencing an image of a data type that does not contain an image field.
