If you divide a number by 0 or an empty cell (e.g. "= A1 / B1", where B1 is empty or zero),
you will get the error message "# DIV / 0!".
You can't divide with an empty divisor or 0, as I learned at school (a long time ago :).
The error message confuses sometimes the user.
That doesn't have to be, you can use this formula instead of the simple division:
= IF (ISERROR (A1 / A2), "0", A1 / A2)
or = IFERROR (A1 / A2, "0")
there are a few variants.
This is how you get the desired quotient (result).

oops wrongly thought ... that happens when the thoughts are faster than the eyes allow
Mr. Riny_van_Eekelen recognized it correctly, Danke :))
The reason for the #NAME error in Excel is the incorrectly entered formula name. If you've entered a formula that doesn't exist, Excel displays the #NAME error.
The # DIV / 0 error message I mentioned comes up when you ask Excel to divide a formula by zero or a blank cell.
