When you print your worksheet, you probably don’t want
errors, such as #DIV/0, to appear on the printout. Before Excel 2002, if there
were errors on your spreadsheet, you had to set up a conditional format to hide
them. Now, it just takes a few mouse clicks to ensure they remain visible on
screen but not on paper.

Follow these steps:

  1. Go
    to File | Page Setup.
  2. On
    the Sheet tab, click the drop-down arrow of the Cell Errors As box and
    select <blank>.
  3. Click

Now, when you print the spreadsheet, any cell that displays
an error on the screen will print out as a blank cell.
