# Nested IF, ISERROR, VLOOKUP Formula Simplification

Feb 12, 2009
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.

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?

Objective: To find out which customers order certain items and which customers dont order certain items. Many customers may order the same item eg customer A, B, C, D all order item "4567"

I have 2 worksheets.

Worksheet 1: Showing 30 item codes, item description and customers. Items in col A (A2:A31), description in col B (B2:B31) runnning down vertically. Customer name in cell 1 of all other columns running across horizontally, eg C1, D1, E1.... (C1:GF1). There are 186 customers. (A formula needs to start at C3 and dragged to GF3)

Worksheet 2: Raw data showing customers in column A and items in column B, There are 3,753 rows. Customer in column A are duplicated as the same customer may order a number of items so for eg

ABC PTY LTD 5671

ABC PTY LTD 5683

ABC PTY LTD 5692

ABC PTY LTD 5610

ABC PTY LTD 5611

Tried the below formula

=if(C1='S2'!A2),=if('S1'!A2='S2'!B2),"ordered","")

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(R[-1]C[-1],Sheet1!C[-1]:C[1],3,FALSE)),""Error"",(VLOOKUP(R[-1]C[-1],Sheet1!C[-1]:C[1],3,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

ActiveCell.Copy

ActiveCell.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

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: ....

I’m trying to develop a workbook which holds monthly data on loan information. It tracks the interest and balance on the loan. I want the first page to have a table displaying the interest payments for every individual tab. When I was brainstorming the idea, I was considering a sort of Vlookup function to find the tab the account is on and then a further function, possibly another vlookup which connects the month to that month’s interest payment. Can anyone help me figure this out?

The attached spreadsheet is obviously simplified, there are well over 30 tabs. But I would like it to, ideally, search the account number column, search the workbook for that account number, and then when on that page use the month at the top of the first page and retrieve the interest payment and put it back in the cell. It’d also be great if the formula can be transferred between workbooks. I’m not sure if that makes sense; basically if I were to copy that worksheet into the next months book, I would like that the formula read those tabs instead of becoming obsolete due to references from the first workbook.

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.

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)))}

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.

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'm trying to build this formula and I'm only half way through it and it already isn't working.

Column D - can be 1, 2, 3, or 4

Column E - can be any number

If column D is 1 or 3, then the VLOOKUP should look up column E and point to the answer in column 4 on another worksheet (Companies in this case). If column D is 2 or 5, then the VLOOKUP should look up column E and point to the answer in column 5 on another worksheet (Companies in this case). This is what I have so far, just trying to get it to recognize if it is a 1 or 2:

=IF(OR(D2=1,VLOOKUP(E2,Companies!A:G,4)),IF(D2=2,VLOOKUP(E2,Companies!A:G,5)))

What is making this not work? I'm getting a false. But before I added the OR, it worked for the D2=1.

Hi guys, hopefully you can shed some light onto this small problem I am having.

The current formula I'm trying to use is:

=IF(VLOOKUP(A4,EPG1!D4:AN26,6,FALSE),COUNTIF(PASS,""))+IF(VLOOKUP(A4,EPG1!D4:AN26,6,FALSE),COUNTIF(F AIL,""))

This isn't producing the desired results.

What I am trying to do in words is this:

IF... in this array it equals A4 then look at coloum 6 and then Countif col 6 says Pass and then add another if it says Fail....

In the example below I have created a validation list in B1 that references D2:D8. What I am then trying to do for cell B2 is create a vlookup and nested if statement that says if b1 is a number lookup the value in column D and return the value in colunm E and if b1 doesn't = a number, ie 'none' then return a null value. The same goes for B3 where if b1 is a number lookup the value in column D and return the value in columm F and if b1 doesn't = a number, ie 'none' then return a null value.dropdown list problem.

I have the following formula:

=IF(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #1'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)<(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)-((VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)*0.03))),'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!A3,IF(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #1'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)>(VLOOKUP('CORE Data 3 Month #2'!$A:$K,6,FALSE))+((VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)*0.03)),'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!C3,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!B3))

The strangest thing is happen. The part of formula underlined and the part bolded are identifical. For some reason, excel is unable to find the value in the underlined portion but is able to find the value in the bolded portion. As a result, I'm getting a #N/A result. how this can be corrected?

I have attached a small sample of some data I am working on (the total is about 6000 lines overall spread over 30 worksheets), but I am stuck trying to get a nested vlookup to work.

What I have

A list of codes contained in 'A' and values in 'B'. I have grouped together the codes in colum 'A' starting with the same 4 digits, and gave them a named range. Columns G and H show all the possible range names. 'K' is a list of all the seperate codes (I know it is the same as 'A', but this is just an example to get a formula working)

What I would like formula column L

to lookup the first 4 digits in column 'K', use that value to lookup the range name in 'G & H', then using the FULL code in K, look for that in the corresponding name range and return the value from 'B'

I am trying to match up two sheets and I the match criteria is based on the data from columns B, C, D, E, and G. Sheet 1 contains ~20,000 line items of data. Sheet 2 contains ~250 line items. I am comparing the info in sheet2 vs. the data in sheet1. Both sheets are formatted the same.

For each row in sheet2, I need to compare against all rows in sheet1. For example; for the first row in sheet2, determine if there is a row in sheet1 that contains the exact same data for columns B, D, E, and G (all must be true) and the data in column C is False. Examples:

Excel spreadsheet will contain a form that will consist of drop down boxes (data validation). Each drop down box will define the data that can be selected in the next drop down box.

The way I initially went about it, is creating nested IF statements. However, we all know there is a limit of 7 nested IF statements. I have 10! So below formula does not work:

=if(B5=1,F5:I5, if(B5=2, F6:I6, if(B5=3, F7:H7, if(B5=4, F8:J8, if(B5=5, F9:H9, if(B5=6,F10:G10, if(B5=7,F11:H11, if(B5=8,F12:H12, if(B5=9, F13:I13, if(B5=10, F14:K14))))))))))

I tried other workarounds such as CONCATENATE, or & signs. No luck. VLOOKUP does not work also, because there are multiple columns in col_index_num. Anything else I try gives me this message:

“The List Source must be a delimited list, or a reference to a single row or column”

What should really happen is this:

User selects value in first list box. Second list box shows values associated wih the value from the first drop down only.

I have the following vlookup working exactly as I want it to in excel: =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(LEFT(C2,10)& "*", NAME,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(LEFT(C2,10)& "*",NAME,2,FALSE))) -NAME is a defined section on another worksheet

The problem I have is when I come to use this within a vba macro I'm writing the wildcard section automatically gets spaces added so it goes from "*" to " * " and excel doesn't like it! The code I'm using to write it into the cell is simply:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _

"=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(LEFT(c2,10)& " * ",NAME,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(LEFT(c2,10)& " * ",NAME,2,FALSE)))"

how to stop the spaces being added?

I'm using the code below to lock certain cells depending on the value of other cells. The code below deals with one line of my spreadsheet only and as the spreadsheet comprises 38 data entry rows I've repeated this code 38 times in the worksheet module with the appropriate changes to row numbers.

It works, but causes much screen flickering and "thinking". I'm new to vba so no doubt I've made this code too extensive or lengthy or whatever (or just plain wrong).

Can anyone assist with suggestions on how to simplify the code and/or help with code to handle all 38 lines without repeating the routine 38 times?

Problem is if there is a middle name the formula works fine, but in case where there is no middle name, it produces the following result.
