Hi Expert's Excel 2007

I am using the following formula to complete the following scenario. .
Formula:-
=IF(o5="",IF(VLOOKUP(Sheet2!B2,Sheet2!$C$2:$Q$500,14,0)="",VLOOKUP(Sheet2!B2,Sheet2!$C$2:$Q$500,10,0),VLOOKUP(Sheet2!B2,Sheet2!$C$2:$Q$500,14,0)),"")

Scenario: sheet 1

If cell o5 is blank and sheet 2 col 14 is blank then look up col 12. If o5 is blank and col 12 is blank then look up col 14...sheet 2
