This question is too vague. Can you give your formula showing what you want done?

Here is the formula: =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(D2,'Workbook1'!B:D,3,))
I need to copy this to multiple cells in one column and replace 'D2' with the corresponding D-column number such as D3, D4, etc.

Select cell. You will see a tiny black square at the bottom right corner of the cell. Just drag the tiny square as far down as required.
