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

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,"")
