In Excel 2007, how should I change my formula so I don't get a #VALUE error?

I have this formula now in O27:

=VLOOKUP(C12;Travbanor!B6:M100;13;"")

The value in column 13 (referred to in the formula) is a customized date value in the format YYYYMMDD (localized: ÅÅÅÅMMDD), which I however need to enter as, for example, "2016-11-27" whereupon Excel automatically converts it to "20161127" in O27.

But I get a #VALUE error for above VLOOKUP formula for some reason.
