Hi,

I have the below formula which returns some NA errors, can i add to it so if its an NA error it returns blank for that cell

=IF(E8="8455",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8455'!E:F,2,0),IF(E8="8456",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8456'!E:F,2,0),IF(E8="8457",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8457'!E:F,2,0))))

Thanks
Seamus

=IF(ISNA(IF(E8="8455",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8455'!E:F,2,0),IF(E8="8456",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8456'!E:F,2,0),IF(E8="8457",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8457'!E:F,2,0))))),"",IF(E8="8455",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8455'!E:F,2,0),IF(E8="8456",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8456'!E:F,2,0),IF(E8="8457",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8457'!E:F,2,0)))))

Perhaps you could use INDIRECT to get the sheet name for a shorter formula....

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,INDIRECT("'"&Fiscal_Merit!G11&"'!E:F"),2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,INDIRECT("'"&Fiscal_Merit!G11&"'!E:F"),2,0))

You can wrap the whole thing in a IFERROR statment:-

=IFERROR(IF(E8="8455",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8455'!E:F,2,0),IF(E8="8456",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8456'!E:F,2,0),IF(E8="8457",VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,'8457'!E:F,2,0)))),"")

If the formula returns any errors it will give you a blank cell.

IFERROR is available in Excel 2007 and later so if you have that version you can apply Funinig Stroll's suggestion to mine to get

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(Fiscal_Merit!G11,INDIRECT("'"&Fiscal_Merit!G11&"'!E:F"),2,0)),"")
