# IsError And Vlookup :: Of False Or N/A Is Found

Sep 16, 2009How do I re write this formula to incorporate iserror function to show "" when a value of false or N/A is found.

=IF(K8<>"",VLOOKUP(F8,'My Sheet'!$F$2:$I$489,4,FALSE))

which looks like this

=If(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet1!A:C,3,False)),"Error",(VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet1!A:C,3,False)))

in the spreadsheet. Can it be done to get a msgbox on error? And. Is there better way to get only the result of the vlookup above instead of using

I'm having trouble with an iserror statement in part of a procedure I've been writing. This macro uses vlookup often, and will occasionally have errors so I have been trying to use the iserror function to trap them. The code is as follows: ....

View 9 Replies View RelatedI 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 want to combine these three functions

I have 2 columns of data: Column A is basically postcodes, but just the 1st part and Column B is a #2. If somewhere else on the sheet I type in the postcode IE. SW19 it will show besides it in my lookup the number 2. However if I type in a postcode that is not listed in Column A, I'd like to to return the value 1. I cannot figure this out. My code is:

I want Match to be either True or False. Also, is there a way to know the cell the value was found in if True? How do I make this work?

I have the following formula,

=IF(AH10="","",IF(VLOOKUP(AH10,Sheet3!C:D,2,FALSE)="","",VLOOKUP(AH10,Sheet3!C:D,2,FALSE)))

that I would like to return a blank cell not N/A if the value that is in "AH10" is not found.

I have a formula that has been working and it looks like this

=VLOOKUP(A13;'IFS export'!$A$1:$F$19000;4;FALSE)

Now I want to use the same formula in an other workbook and it gives an error

=VLOOKUP(A2;DRAWING!$A$2:$C$9168;3;FALSE)

When I type this formula I get the window that says

"This formula contains an error.

*For information about fixing common formula problems, press help.

And if I go and try to change the first formula that has been work it gives me the same error.

i have a formula in a cell:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP($D11,PRMC!$O$15:$P$1048576,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP($D11,PRMC!$O$15:$P$1048576,2,FALSE))&IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP($E11,PRMC!$O$15:$P$1048576,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP($E11,PRMC!$O$15:$P$1048576,2,FALSE))

The first half of the vlookup searches for data and returns a dollar amount if true The second half of the vlookup searches for another data set and returns a dollar amount if true...

Both amounts could be the same, so I cant use a formula based on numeric value

the conditional format must determine which vlookup is returning the result

in other words I'd like to conditionally format (grey fill) if the first vlookup returns data and conditionally format (blue fill) if the second vlookup returns data

Probably have to "use a formula to determine which cells to format"

Where in this function would I put " " to return a blank field if false is returned?

=IF(D18>=1,(VLOOKUP(C18,C7:E13,2,FALSE))-(VLOOKUP(C18,C7:E13,3,FALSE))+(VLOOKUP(C18,C7:E13,3,FALSE))*D18)

I'm trying to create a rec report, ideally on one page, for multiple criteria. The situation is we get a report on our trade positions (investment stuff) from an outside service we use. We also have a report internally from what we've booked. We're looking to tie out are basic things like price, original par, revised par, trade date, counter-party banks, etc. I've consolidated data from both sources on one page (DATA) where all data points are lined up (say EXTERNAL is from rows 1-500, and INTERNAL is 510-1010). Now I need to create a front page showing the result of each tie-out. The lookup value will be a combination of the fund name + trade ticket number which would almost guarantee a unique ID (fund name XYZ, ticket number 12345 = XYZ12345)

Current tabs on spreadsheet: DATA, EXTERNAL, INTERNAL. I need to add a REC page

Question: What formula can I use to check on each and return TRUE/FALSE? The goal is to have about 8 columns on the REC, each for one of the tie-outs (let's use price as an example.). I know the basic VLOOKUP to return one value, but it appears in this case I will need VLOOKUP to check two matching values based on unique ID XZY12345, compare the price, and return TRUE if they match, FALSE if they don't

Here's something I saw from one of our spreadsheets that I think does the same to confirm counter-party, though I have no idea how to read this lengthy formula.

=EXACT(VLOOKUP(IF(Q2="COMPANY",R2,Q2),FUNDS!$M$1:$N$400,2,FALSE),

INDEX(PENDING!$G$4:$G$3218,MATCH(CP!C2,PENDING!$N$4:$N$3218,0)))

I'm using VLOOKUP to search for results in another worksheet. What I need is 0 returned if the search fails. Currently I'm getting #N/A and that's causing my other formulas to fail.

View 8 Replies View RelatedI need to create a formula that will give me True or False if text in a cell matches any cells in a range.

For example:

Column A and B have text:

Account

Date

Name

Species

Column C has other and sometimes matching text:

Name

Deal

What formula would I use to find out if all cells in Columns A and B are represented in Column C?

When an exact match to the lookup value is not found, the function goes to the highest value that is less than the lookup value.

What do I do if I want to return the closest value, but not less than the lookup value?

For exampe, in my screenshot, if my lookup value is 6 horsepower, I want to return the efficiency for the next highest value (if no exact match) for 7.5 HP. Function would return 89.5

This formula works perfectly except when worksheet 2 has a code that is not on worksheet 1, then I get the error #N/A. I understand why I get the error, but not how to fix it. Obviously some sort of nesting - but what and how?

What I want on worksheet 2, column I - if there is a code on worksheet 2 but not on worksheet 1 - a return of "N/A"...

I have two columns containing numbers and have done a vlookup to see if the values exist in each column. Now I need a formula to return the numbers that were NOT found using the vlookup function.

I have a user form with a combobox (called STKCODE) that calls up a vlookup routine to search for this item in a named range on a worksheet and retrieve related data to display on the userform. All this works fine.

What I would like to know is how to easily determine the row number on the worksheet, representing the row the data is stored in, if thats at all possible....

I have an excel sheet with multiple columns. In one column I have X's and in another I have a limit. I need to look down the stuff column, find every X, match each X to its corresponding limit and then compare all the limits and return only the smallest limit found. I.e if I was looking down the stuff column I would find 4,6,8,8,3 and thus I would return 3 as my value. I am very new to working with excel formulas,

When I use VLOOKUP formula within a VBA routine ex:

For LoopCounter = 1 to LastRow

With Worksheets("0MATERIAL")

.Cells(RowCounter, 5).FormulaR1C1 = "VLOOKUP(RC[-2],'0MAT_UNIT'!R1C1:R65520C12,4,FALSE)"

End With

RowCounter = RowCounter + 1

Next LoopCounter

How can I find out what row or cell address that the VLOOKUP found the data? The above code works perfectly but the problem is I need data from that same row in columns 4-11. I replicated the .Cells line above and made each one a VLOOKUP (for column 4, 5, 6, etc...) but this kills the performance. I have around 32,000 rows in sheet 0MATERIAL and around 50,000 rows within sheet 0MAT_UNIT

I have a table arranged by columns into SETS of results. I am looking for a way to mark all the columns of a set as false if any one column of the set is false.

View 4 Replies View RelatedAA3 has the Vlookup formula done properly but the other two entries gives out the "N/A" because those particular entries aren't on the sheet being looked up.

This screws up the Sum portion (AD).

Anyway to do this so that instead of "N/A" on entries not found, it zeroes out?

.... Or is there a way to do the Sum formula on AD so that it ignores that "N/A" entry?

I am trying to Sum lines of info with "True or False" and "Yes and No". I would like to assign 1 to True and Yes and 0 to False and No when I total the rows. Never tried this in Excel, on Lotus and the formula does not work. I can find and replace, but I would like to be able to use a formula.

I have the following the forumula with just one if statement.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI learnt a new formula from this forum which -> if(n=(a1),a1,"S"). I use another formula -> if(iserror=(a1),a1,"S"). It comes out the same result.

May i know what is the main difference between these two formulae?

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'm currently using the following code, but it returns #value when the cells don't have anything to concatenate.

View 6 Replies View RelatedAnyone 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.

I require a worksheet formula, something along these lines:

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("Cat",OR(A1,A2))),"No","Yes")

The formula is in A3 and I need it to test both cells A1 and A2 for the existence of the word Cat. The word may be in either, both or neither of the cells.
