Hi Experts excel 2007

I need to amend the following. ..
=IF(C2="Completed","Complete",IF(C2<>"",C2,IF(AND(C2="",A2=""),"",IF(C2="",VLOOKUP(A2,H12:L19,2,FALSE)))))

To if c2 is complete then complete...if a2 has text then vlookup, if A2 is blank then c2..if a2 is blank and c2 is blank then blank. .

=IF(C2="Completed","Complete",IF(A2="",C2,VLOOKUP(A2,H12:L19,2,FALSE)))

however if the lookup fails this will return 0 - is that a problem?
