I had this question after viewing Backup Tapes inventory excels function.

Hi Experts,

How we create a condition if the tapes not found,
then it will copy the other cells?

Thanks in advance

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I can't see why ISNUMBER was needed. If the cell in D is empty then there may be an issue. If this is the case try

=IF((OR(D2="Not Found",D2="")),A2,"")
