This appears to be a duplicate

It would help if you give some more information:

What sort of value is in F5 (is it a number)
Can F5 match more than one value in the row?
What's in the intermediate cells like AU5 and AV5?

regards, barry

The breaking up of the formula worked. I apologize for the duplicate. I did not put the nesting error and I should have.
