MLMissingDataAsNaN

Set empty cells to NaN or 0

Syntax

MLMissingDataAsNaN(flag)
MLMissingDataAsNaN flag
out = MLMissingDataAsNaN(flag)

Description

MLMissingDataAsNaN(flag) sets empty cells to NaN or 0. When the Spreadsheet Link™ EX software is installed, the default is "no", so empty cells are handled as 0s. If you change the value of MLUseCellArray to "yes", the change remains in effect the next time a Microsoft® Excel® session starts. Use this syntax when working directly in a worksheet.

MLMissingDataAsNaN flag sets empty cells to NaN or 0. Use this syntax in a VBA macro.

out = MLMissingDataAsNaN(flag) lets you catch errors when executing MLMissingDataAsNaN in a VBA macro. If MLMissingDataAsNaN fails, then out is a string containing error code. Otherwise, out is 0.

Input Arguments

Either "yes" or "no".

Specify "yes" to set empty cells to use NaNs. Specify "no" to set empty cells to use 0s.

Default: "no"

Output Arguments

0 if the command succeeded. Otherwise, a string containing error code.

Tips
