what are you VLOOKUP in Column A. these are not Date values? then you can try this
=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,Your Range,Column Number,False),"")

Open in new window

.which returns to blank if there is no match up.

or you can try this which is more specific to your question.
=IF(CELL("Format",A1)="D1","",VLOOKUP(A1, Your Range, Column Number, False)

Open in new window

Hi itjockey


=IF(CELL("Format",A1)="D1","",VLOOKUP(A1, Your Range, Column Number, False)

I am using the above and surely it should be if a1 has a date then return back in cell b1..if a1 has not date the apply the vlookup formula. .
