I'm getting error when I assign below formula to field A21

Run time error 1004
Application defined or object defined error
 
    Range("A21").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!$A$10:$R$90,3,FALSE)"
    Range("A21").Select

If I apply same formula manually on cell A21 by pressing F2 the commend works.

Your formula uses A1 notation, not R1C1, try this.
    Range("A21").Formula = "=VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!$A$10:$R$90,3,FALSE)"

Yes of course. You are assigning an A1 style formula to the R1C1 formula property.

If you want to assign that formula you should just use the 'mycell.formula' property
