Folks,
The below code is OK. However if I have no value in cell B2 I get the error #N/A in the range A4:A12. I'm having a problem not showing that error with IF(ISERROR and I may not be doing that correctly, if it is what I need not to show the #N/A error which is my objective.
=IF(HLOOKUP($B$2,$J$3:$M$12,ROW()-2,FALSE)=0,"",HLOOKUP($B$2,$J$3:$M$12,ROW()-2,FALSE))

for #N/A you should use ISNA instead of ISERROR

or you can simply add an IF(b2="";"";IF(HLOOKUP($B$2,$J$3:$M$12,ROW()-2,FALSE)=0,"",HLOOKUP($B$2,$J$3:$M$12,ROW()-2,FALSE)))

You suggestion works "almost" - if you will repost
IF(b2="";"";IF(HLOOKUP($B$2,$J$3:$M$12,ROW()-2,FALSE)=0,"",HLOOKUP($B$2,$J$3:$M$12,ROW()-2,FALSE)))
to
IF(b2="","",IF(HLOOKUP($B$2,$J$3:$M$12,ROW()-2,FALSE)=0,"",HLOOKUP($B$2,$J$3:$M$12,ROW()-2,FALSE)))

without the ; I can award you points. I do not want to post an incorrect solution.
