Considerations when using the IFERROR function
The IFERROR function is based on the IF function, and uses the same error messages, but has fewer arguments. The relationship between the IFERROR function and the IF function as follows:
IFERROR(A,B) := IF(ISERROR(A), B, A)
Note that the values that are returned for A and B must be of the same data type; therefore, the column or expression used for value and the value returned for value_if_error must be the same data type.
