Hi Experts excel 2007

I have the following of formula in cell b2
If (A2="", if (c2="","", c2), VLOOKUP (a2,'sheet2'! $ a $2:$b $20,2, False))

Which is fine...I need to add the following step...if g2 date is less then todays date then replace c2 with complete,  if g2 has no date then above formula.

Mr.route217

i dint write your formula in Excel sheet as there are many references of other sheet which i dnt have. So above formula i had written in Note pad so it may ask for auto complete. just click yes. Or provide me sample file.


Thanks

Hold on...could be my fault

If g2 is blank then f2, otherwise if g2 has date then h2..then rest of the formula. ..

Sorry

Try this
=IF(IF(G2="",F2,IF(CELL("Format",G2)="D1",H2)),IF(A2="",IF(C2="","",C2),VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!$A$2:$B$20,2,FALSE)))

ok don't provide me sample WB but list down your criteria for whole formula.

like...
1.If G2 is blank then F2,
2.if G2 has date then H2
3.your rest formula criteria.

Firstly,  apologies ad I cannot upload. ..WB.

Based on this formula =IF(OR(G2="",G2<TODAY()),C2,IF(A2="",IF(C2="","",C2),VLOOKUP(A2,sheet2!$A$2:$B$20,2,FALSE)))

amend kindly do if g2 is blank the return h2..if g2 has a date then as normal as above.

There are two parts of formula tell me which part execute when as formula is conflicting with criteria.

Part 1
If (A2="", if (c2="","", c2), VLOOKUP (a2,'sheet2'! $ a $2:$b $20,2, False))


Part 2
=IF(G2="",F2,IF(CELL("Format",G2)="D1",H2))

Thanks
