- Check the cell reference in the formula for any typos or errors
- If the cell reference is valid, check to see if the cell or range of cells is valid
- If the cell or range of cells is valid, check to see if the formula is valid
- If the formula is valid, check to see if the cell or range of cells is locked
- If the cell or range of cells is locked, unlock it and try the formula again

## 1. Check the cell reference in the formula for any typos or errors

To check the cell reference in a formula, you can use the Error Code function in the Tools menu. The Error Code function displays the error code that indicates that a cell reference in a formula is not valid.
