excel formula or VBA

I have two Columns in EXCEL

below are the scenarios i have to cover in the formula
  1. IF I have data in Col A that have to updated in Column D
  2. If I have Zero in Column A then do a vlookup based on Column C in Sheet2 and pick update results of column 5
  3. even after vlookup if i do not find anything Column D have to be updated with Column B
  4. in Column A if i have the rows contain FUSE DB then col B have to picked
  5. Delete Fuse db word in results column

I know this is little confusing I am attaching a sample file

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

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)


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...

for part 1 i am getting an error and i have attached file with changes highlighted in red. Hope I am clear. Thank you so much for your time
and change G2 to:

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