I am using this formula that works fine until it can't find wjat it is looking for

=IF(R34="Match","",VLOOKUP(LEFT(D34,4),MatchData!L:S,8,))

but if it can't find it returns #N/A

I have tried to add ISERROR but can't get it to work.

Thanks

=IF(R34="Match","",VLOOKUP(VALUE(LEFT(D34,4)),MatchData!L:S,8,FALSE))

I think you need the VALUE command to properly extract a numeric to satisfy the VLOOKUP.
