Inverting double value

Part of my indicator uses USDCHF open price inverted to give CHFUSD open value which normally is 1/USDCHF.

My indicator is working on one or two time frames but on others I am getting an error "zero divide" and it is pointing to this line of code? 

double   Quote = 1/ iOpen(EnumToString(QuoteCurrency),0,i); 

Is there another way to invert the USDCHF open value to stop this error?

EnumToString(QuoteCurrency) is not a valid symbol, why don't you simply use "USDCHF"?

Sorry EnumToString(QuoteCurrency) is an input I sometimes also use USDCAD

input   ENUM_FX_PAIRS  QuoteCurrency = USDCHF;

Since iOpen(EnumToString(QuoteCurrency),0,i) is returning zero, find out why. Print _Symbol and EnumToString(QuoteCurrency) and _LastError.

How should we know? You didn't show the function parameter value(s)

That is the problem with using names that do not describe the variable

Print out  EnumToString(QuoteCurrency), and make sure that it is a valid symbol (as WHRoeder has already said.)

Many brokers use a prefix or suffix and USDCHF will not be recognised.

Interesting, do you know a broker which use a prefix ?
