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.

Hold on...could be my fault

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

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))
