Hi i have an IF which i am trying to ignore errors and FALSE

=IF(ISERROR(BD2),"",IF(AI2<>BD2,"Re-assigned","Assigned"))

The above ignores the errors but still shows results with "FALSE"

Can anyone add something in to also ignore "FALSE"

Note this lookup is looking up another lookup

Thanks

the formula above cannot show results "FALSE", there must be another problem.

can you post the worksheet in question ?

I think you need another check.  Unless I don't understand the question this should work

=IF(ISERROR(BD2),"",IF(BD2=FALSE,"",IF(AI2<>BD2,"Re-assigned","Assigned")))

If you want to ignore errors and also cases where cell BD2 contains "FALSE", use the formula kgerb proposed.

Hey, attached is an example, go across to BD1+BD2 and i have highlighted them red, basically when the lookup in BE1 recognises that BD1 is FALSE, it needs to return blank
