Hi Guys, does anyone know how to put an ISNA around this Index Match formula?

=INDEX(Journals!P$5:P$1000,MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(Journals!B$5:B$1000=B7,0),0))

I'd use the more normal construction (for your original formula)

=INDEX(Journals!P$5:P$1000,MATCH(B7,Journals!B$5:B$1000,0))

or even

=VLOOKUP(B7,Journals!B$5:P$1000,15,0)

Then you can use IFERROR round either of those as andrew_man suggests, ie.

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B7,Journals!B$5:P$1000,15,0),"")

regards, barry
