What I've been trying to do is if there in nothing in P7 then Q7 (where the If formula exits) is "". Else use the index function.

    The formula appears to have slanted quotes, ”, instead of straight quotes, ".

    Is that just a typo?

    OK error went away however the results were blank. In P7 are the results of a Multi.Mode function. In Q7 is my If statement where I'm evaluating what is in P7. If there is nothing than in Q7 there is nothing. If there is a value then Index finds the name of the Product in Q7. I'm not getting the Product name, just a blank
