Try in column A:

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!$A$2:$E$6,5,0),B2)

copied down.

I think you are also talking about the formula in column D.  It looks like you had and \ in the formula causing error:

s/b =IF(A2="FUSE DB",B2,A2)

Does this cover your request?

Thank you so much, just few changes

1. If i get a result as "Fuse DB" in Col "D" then it have to be treated as blank

which means after execute the below formula and if stil get "Fuse DB" it have to cosider ""(Blank)

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!$A$2:$E$6,5,0),A2)

2. If my Column "D' is zero and Column Has "Fuse DB" only then this Formula if I have data in Columd then Col E have to be blank

=IF(A2="FUSE DB",B2,A2)

In a nut shell i either have to have data in Col D or Col E

For part 1, try

=IF(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!$A$2:$E$6,5,0)="Fuse DB","",IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!$A$2:$E$6,5,0),A2)

for part 2, our description got a little confusing...  can you elaborate on that.

I did notice that the 0 in column A is text, so the current formula in column C should have the 0 in quotes...

=IF(A2="0",C2,A2)  

copied down.

and change G2 to:

=IF(A2="FUSE DB",B2,A2) to remove the #NA error
