# Avoid #N/A in an Index Match Formula

Hi!
I have the following formula that looks for values in a separate worksheet, whenever it doesn't find a value it places the #N/A symbol in the cell. Since I will be charting this information how can I get the cell to be left blank if nothing is captured ?

=INDEX('Act vs Bud'!\$I\$2:\$ES\$401,MATCH(\$A9,'Act vs Bud'!\$A\$2:\$A\$401,0),MATCH(B\$1,'Act vs Bud'!\$I\$2:\$ES\$2,0))

You can wrap it in an IFERROR()

eg

=IFERROR(INDEX('Act vs Bud'!\$I\$2:\$ES\$401,MATCH(\$A9,'Act vs Bud'!\$A\$2:\$A\$401,0),MATCH(B\$1,'Act vs Bud'!\$I\$2:\$ES\$2,0)),"")
