# ISERROR Formula In Cell That Has Multiple Vlookups?

Apr 18, 2008
My problem is when i get a product that isnt in the reference sheets (ie. in cell I19), so when that happens i get "#N/A". I know i can add in ISERROR into my formula, but every time i've tried this it hasn't worked so im missing something...

I am using this formula

=IF(SEARCH("pipe",A2),VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!A4:B12,2))

to look up a reference code for "pipe". The reference codes for "pipe" are in column 2 of a table on sheet 2 and are dependant on the dimensions of the pipe given in column 1 of the same table. C2 in the formula is where the dimensions are given. (hope that's clear ).

What I want to do is to extend the above formula to look up column 3 of the table on sheet 2 if, for example, A2 contains "Bend", i.e., =IF(SEARCH("Bend",A2),VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!A4:B12,3)).

Combining those two formula using "=if(and " worked for me for the first test, but changing the contents of A2 from "pipe" to "Bend" results in a #Value type error.

I can't use if A2 = "pipe" because extra words could be introduced into A2, e.g., "copper pipe" - therefore the equals would not be appropriate.

I have two lists of IDs in 2 columns. I want to sort of do a vlookup of each row in one column to see if it is in the next column, and I want to sum a third column that goes along with column 2 based on whether the same IDs from column one is in the second column. And I want to do all this in one cell. For example:

A B C

TestA TestZ 10

TestB TestY 20

TestC TestB 8

TestD TestA 7

I need one cell to calculate for me that based on the IDs in column A, column B matches with the IDs TestB and TestA, therefore giving me the sum of 15 (8+7). Doing a vlookup and auto-filling down and then summing up is not an option, so I'm trying to calculate it within one cell if possible. And I can't get sumproduct to work because the matching IDs are not necessarily in the same rows.

Is there an easy way to change

='Week 1'!$D$21

='Week 1'!$D$30

='Week 1'!$D$39

='Week 2'!$D$21

='Week 2'!$D$30

='Week 2'!$D$39

to

=IF(ISERROR('Week 1'!$D$21), "", ('Week 1'!$D$21))

=IF(ISERROR('Week 1'!$D$30), "", ('Week 1'!$D$30))

=IF(ISERROR('Week 1'!$D$39), "", ('Week 1'!$D$39))

=IF(ISERROR('Week 2'!$D$21), "", ('Week 2'!$D$21))

=IF(ISERROR('Week 2'!$D$30), "", ('Week 2'!$D$30))

=IF(ISERROR('Week 2'!$D$39), "", ('Week 2'!$D$39))

Without having to change each one by hand?

There is a pattern to the numbers.

There are 5 weeks, rows 12, 21, 30, 39, 48 in columns D,I,N,S,X

I am trying to fix the below formula =IF(OR(ISERROR((F26-E26)/F26),((F26-E26)/F26)=1),"",(F26-E26)/F26). If I get an error from the formula I want it to return a blank cell. If I get 1 as the answer to the formula I'd like it to return a blank cell. This formula only works if the result is 1 but won't return a blank cell if the answer is an error.

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

For FormulaRemake = 2 To 2000

Worksheets("Data"). Range("D" & FormulaRemake).Formula = ""=If(ISERROR(Data!W"" & FormulaRemake - 1 & "")"" & ""=True,"",Data!W"" & FormulaRemake - 1 & "")""

Next

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

I'm having troubles with the syntax for the .Formula part. I read that when you do this you're supposed to double quote everything, except if you need a "" in it...?

Should look like this when done right: =IF(ISERROR(Data!W1)=TRUE,"",Data!W1) Also is there anything besides ScreenUpdating that will make this code run faster?

I currently use the following formula using IF and ISERROR i.e.

=IF(ISERROR(IF(O12-(O12/100*80)<S12,"",IF(O12="","","Warning 20% or less Cover Remains!")))," ",(IF(O12-(O12/100*80)<S12,"",IF(O12="","","Warning 20% or less Cover Remains!"))))

What I’m after is to add an addition condition e.g. using “IF(O12-(O12/100*80)<S12” and “IF(O12-(O12/100*90)<S12” which would display either Warning 20% or less Cover Remains! or Warning 10% or less Cover Remains! incorporating ISERROR to avoid #N/A

I have a table that has the data below

Month Jan Feb Mar Apr

Brand 0 1 2 3

I want to do a vlookup with match to find the month and then return the value of a rolling 3 months.. So if i look up Apr i want to look at the rolling 3 prior months average ie, average of (Jan,feb and March). i have the vlookup formulas working, its when i include the multiple vlookups (Match -1, -2 etc, the average is calculating the blank cells for some reason..

I'm attempting to work with a v-lookup that will have multipe results. In column A of my spreadsheet are invoices numbers and in column B are account numbers. An invoice can have multiple accounts. For example, there are two lines for invoice "ABC", each with a different result in column B (see below)

Invoice Account

ABC Cash

ABC Receivable

My goal is to have the vlookup bring in both values, but in separate rows (see below)

Column A Column B Column C

ABC Cash Receivable

I'm having issues with a formula that I am using to add three vlookups together. The problem is that there may or may not be data in one of the columns I am looking up with the vlookup. I am looking up hold times for reps each week then adding them together to get a monthly sum. This formula works when data is available for all 4 weeks. When I have a rep that started in the middle of the month there isn't data for all 4 weeks so I want Excel to just treat that as a 0 or Null, Currently it just provides a 0.0 for the whole thing instead of adding what is there.

=(IFERROR(VLOOKUP([@Name],Sheet2!A:H,2,0),0))+(IFERROR(VLOOKUP([@Name],Sheet2!A:H,4,0),0))+(IFERROR(VLOOKUP([@Name],Sheet2!A:H,6,0),0))+(IFERROR(VLOOKUP([@Name],Sheet2!A:H,8,0),0))

I am trying to write a formula that is based on a vlookup that will return multiple values. Attached is a spreadsheet that is an example for what I am trying to do. On the download tab it is an example of a general ledger. On the total tab I want to enter a GL# and have it list all the entries for that GL number. I know I can try an array, but I have not been able to figure that out.

Instead of doing a long long formula that is =VLOOKUP(x1,....)+VLOOKUP(x2,.....) is there a faster way of doing it in the one formula?

I want to vlookup one value into two different tables and return the 2nd column in the respective table it finds the value in. if it does not find the value in either table, return "". Currently I have the formula below, but it is not working 100%.

=IF(E6="Shipped","Printed",IF(NOT(ISNA(VLOOKUP(C6,Master!$GP$4:$GQ$5000,2,0)=1)),"Printed",

IF(NOT(ISNA(VLOOKUP(C6,Master!$HD$4:$HE$5000,2,0)=1)),"Ready","")))

I would like some code that would wrap if(iserror) around a formula, so that if the result is an error then no text is shown. It would be good if I could select a range and the formula would be adjusted for all cells with formula in. (Would be even better if cells with references in could have if(isblank) instead!) I am currently spending ages adjusting all my formulas manually and haven't got time to try and work out how to do this with vba.(I'm not very experienced with it!)

e.g. =INDEX('Characs Single'!$B$1:$C$100,MATCH('1Report'!$B12,'Characs Single'!$B$1:$B$19,0),2)

would be come

=IF(ISERROR(INDEX('Characs Single'!$B$1:$C$100,MATCH('1Report'!$B12,'Characs Single'!$B$1:$B$19,0),2)),"",INDEX('Characs Single'!$B$1:$C$100,MATCH('1Report'!$B12,'Characs Single'!$B$1:$B$19,0),2))

why is this formula

=IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(H14:H16),"",(AVERAGE(H14:H16)

returning DIV#!0 if there is no data in the target cells, I thought the ISERROR was meant to stop that?

I'm going wrong with this formula: =if(iserror(J3-VLOOKUP (H3,$H$730:$J$1456,3,FALSE)," "(J3-VLOOKUP(H3,$H$730:$J$1456,3,FALSE)). I feel like I've used a variant of this formula before without encountering any problems.

Basically i need to type in a formula in sheet 1 under each of the months that will match the account name and location from B1 and C1 to the data range in sheet 2 (Columns B and C) and return whatever value is listed on sheet 2 under column E. My gut tells me I need to use multiple look ups but I've tried this and got numerous errors.

I am trying to use an ISERROR function in an array formula, but it doesn't seem to be working. The formula I am using is as follows: ={IF(ISERROR(MMULT(Covar1,MMULT(MINVERSE(BC111:CX158),E161:E208))),0,MMULT(Covar1,MMULT(MINVERSE(BC111:CX158),E161:E208)))}

Sample data

2014

2013

2012

Country A

2%

3%

Country B

5%

6%

7%

[code].....

Now, whenever I type in any country it should show me the most recent figure available for that country.

Suppose, if I type Country A in, say cell A14, then it should give me output 2% in cell, say A15. When I change that same cell to country C, it should give me output 10%, country B should give me output 5%.

Currently I have used IF and multiple/nested VLOOKUPs to arrive at this output. Is there any better way to do this with VLOOKUP and OFFSET?

I am using Excel 2007.

I'm working on a macro which compares values in particular cells across different versions of a sheet. Unfortunately there are quite a lot of values, and my code is running very slowly.

I'm trying to get the data in a grid, with the file version across the top, and down the left the project name. For each file version I need to look up a specific value for every project listed.

At the moment, my macro is creating a seperate formula for each cell which does a vlookup on the project name to the specific external file.

The relevant bit of code is below

At the moment its runnig to slow by several orders of magnitude, Working on a 4 by 10 grid it takes about a minute, and I'm going to need it to be able to handle a 50 by 800 grid.

While the code is running, the CPU is not maxed out, so I'm assuming that its the calls to the file system which are taking all the time.

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Dim ccount As Integer

Dim rcount As Integer

Dim sFilename As String

Dim sPath As String

With ActiveSheet

For ccount = 1 To Range("c1").End(xlToRight).Column - 2

sPath = Left(FileNamesList(ccount), InStr(FileNamesList(ccount), "Pipeline ~") - 1)

sFilename = Right(FileNamesList(ccount), Len(FileNamesList(ccount)) - InStr(FileNamesList(ccount), "Pipeline ~") + 1)

For rcount = 1 To Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row - 2

by SDB.xls]Pipeline'!$A$1:$AO$300,3,0)

Cells(rcount + 2, ccount + 2) = "=VLOOKUP(""" & Cells(rcount + 2, 1) & """,'" & sPath & "[" & sFilename & "]Pipeline'!$A$1:$AO$300,3,0)"

Next rcount

Next ccount

End With

I have filled the following formula in many cells of a spreadsheet.

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(D75,'Sheet1'!$D$3:$D$5442,1,FALSE)),0,IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C75,'Sheet1'!$C$3:$C$54 42,1,FALSE)),0,IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!$A$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&G75,'Sheet1'!$B$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE),VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!$A$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE))))

I am wondering if I have nested too many functions for this to work properly. In the case where one of the first two if statements are true (an error would be produced), I am receiving a "0" as specified. However, in the case where the statement VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!$A$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE) results in an error then I should have the return of VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&G75,'Sheet1'!$B$3:$I$5442,9,FALSE), but am getting a #REF! error instead.

I have a table that calculates both grand totals and sub-totals, with one cell always showing the grand totals, and one cell that would show different sub-totals based on which filters are applied.

I am using the following formula to find the grand total:

{=SUM(IF(ISERROR(DL14:DL1541)," ",DL14:DL1541))}

I am attempting to use this (non-working) formula for the sub-total:

=SUBTOTAL(9,DL14:DL1541)

The problem is that I have a lot of cells with "#N/A" in them, and can't figure out how to get the sub-total formula to work. I've tried rewriting the sub-total formula in several different ways, but can't get it to work.

Lets say the cell I'm working on is D3

D3 = A1+A3+A5 (It's a formula, and sometimes it returns "#VALUE")

I want cell D3 to have a formula and if the result in D3 ISERROR, put a value of 1 there.

I'm running into Circular Reference, and don't know how to do it ....

How to determine the correct formula for this requirement?

Assuming I have 2 individual excel files and an index excel file (in reality, there are more than hundreds of file). For index excel, once the user enter part number (eg. 1 or 2), the excel will look for the part number excel file and determine vlookup function.

The only problem I have here is I can not make the index file automatically add the part number shown on most left column into the required formula (replace the part number file section).

I tried use the indirect function but this require each file to be opened, which is not possible for actual use. I am looking for a function that can work in closed worksheet.

Anyone have a way to create a macro that will convert a formula that returns an error into and IF(ISERROR) formula?

I have inherited a financial model in which the programmer did not consider that hundreds of the formula results would be #DIV/0 unless there are entries in the source cells. I would like to create a custom macro that would convert the formula to an IF statement, so that if the formula in that cell is currently creating an error, return 0, if not run the formula.
