VBA Macro Code for Excel 2010

Hi,
Can you help debug the below macro code? Thanks.

  Range("Q2").Select
     Application.CutCopyMode = False
     ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISBLANK(RC[-1]),(VLOOKUP($O2,Sheet2!$A$1:$E$4,2,FALSE),RC[-1])"

I am getting a runtime error 1004  application-defined or object-defined error

I have 4 columns: P, Q, R, & S that need to be populated if they are blank based on the values in a table on a separate sheet, sheet 2 if those values match the data in the cells in column O.

Cells in columns P & Q may be blank, or they may be populated already.  If populated, I need to keep that data.

Additionally, this data is updated daily real-time so I need to extract the data from the financial system  every 2 - 3 days.  After extracting it, I verify the data.  However, once verified it is verified.  I just need to find the new updated entries, and verify them.  So, column R is the verified column and is populated with yes or no.  There is a unique ID # in column D so how can I match the new extracted data with the previous day's verified data, and trabsfer the Yes verified to the new extract data in column R?

I have the following code that works great and is similar to what is needed above but it does not involve a vlookup & isblank combination.  And, can I make this it's own separate sub (that I can do easily), without any care as to what cell is active prior to calling the sub, or do I need to always get to the proper column (& 1st cell) prior to calling the sub?

You cannot mix addressing so use

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISBLANK(RC[-1]),(VLOOKUP(r2c15,Sheet2!r1c1:r4c5,2,FALSE),RC[-1])"

I think I missed a bracket!

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISBLANK(RC[-1]),(VLOOKUP(r2c15,Sheet2!r1c1:r4c5,2,FALSE)),RC[-1])"

For what it's worth ... and I do not recommend this because of the complexity but you can convert on the fly using application.ConvertFormula:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISBLANK(RC[-1]),(VLOOKUP(" & application.ConvertFormula("$O2", xlA1, xlR1C1, true) & ",Sheet2!" & application.ConvertFormula("$A$1:$E$4", xlA1, xlR1C1, true) & ",2,FALSE)),RC[-1])"

Thanks, Chris.  This worked.  I did not try to use the more complex answer but thanks for providing it in case I ever need it.
