I am using a nested VLOOKUP - against two look-up areas....  It works for part of it - but then I get #NAME? error when not found on either.  I've looked at the formula over and over but can't see where I'm off.  


if item in column k is not found in first area, then check to see if item in column l is found in second area.
Obtain value if found in one of the two areas.
Write out 'value not found' if nothing found in either.

Here's the formula:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(K5,tbl_Process_File_Counts!$D$1:$G$51,4,FALSE)), IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(L5,tbl_Process_File_Counts2!$E$1:$G$51,3,FALSE)),”count Note Found”, VLOOKUP(L5,tbl_Process_File_Counts2!$E$1:$G$51,3,FALSE)), VLOOKUP(K5,tbl_Process_File_Counts!$D$1:$G$51,4,FALSE))

Thanks for your help,
