Hi,

This looks like it should work but doesn't.

   ActiveCell.Formula = "=(IFERROR(VLOOKUP(N2,Sheet3!$A:$B,2,FALSE),"")"

I'm using Excel 2013 and hours of googling says this should work.

Edit: The VLOOKUP works on it's own. I get Runtime error 1004 when I add the IFERROR part.

Thanks,

Whenever you have double quotes in the middle of a string in VBA you need to double them up.
ActiveCell.Formula = "=(IFERROR(VLOOKUP(N2,Sheet3!$A:$B,2,FALSE),"""")"

Oops, didn't notice the extraneous ( at the start.

Try this.

ActiveCell.Formula = "=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(N2,Sheet3!$A:$B,2,FALSE),"""")"

Open in new window

Hi Norie,

Double Double quotes along with another parenthesis did it.

Instead of adding a parenthisis you should remove the one after the = sign.

MInd you enclosing the entire formula in () won't do any harm.:)
