# Nested IF Limit For ISERROR And SEARCH

Jun 13, 2006

I am trying to write a formula requiring more than 7 nested conditions for ISERROR and SEARCH. Excel throws up and error if I exceed this limit ...

## 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.

## Code To Add Nested IF & ISERROR Formula To Cell

Jun 26, 2008

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?

## Nested Functions Limit

Apr 1, 2008

=SUM(IF(WEEKDAY(calendar,2)=2,IF(RIGHT(C35:C400)="H",
SUBSTITUTE(C35:C400,"H","")/7.5)))))))

I need to nest the above formula within an IF statement. Unfortunately, I am already up to the Excel limit of nesting 7 functions.

Can anybody see, at a glance, how I can achieve the same result with at least one less nested function?

## IF+ISERROR+SEARCH ?+OR?

May 3, 2007

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.

## Need Help With =IF(OR(ISERROR(SEARCH

Nov 6, 2008

I'm having trouble with a formula. What I want to do is create a conditional formatting so if a cell contains certain keywords, it will highlight that cell.

What I want is if a cell contains the word BOX or PO or P.O. to highlight that cell or show either a true or false.

What I have is =IF(OR(ISERROR(SEARCH("BOX",A1,1),SEARCH("PO",A1,1),SEARCH("P.O.",A1,1))),1,0)

It works if I do it separately but when combined it just stays 1 all the time despite the cell not containing those words. Am I organizing the OR and ISERROR right?

## Limit The Search Range In FIND() Function

Dec 2, 2009

I am currently using the simple code block below to jump to a cell on another sheet based on a user-inputted value to a cell on the current sheet. Although jump is too strong a word at the moment...walk slowly might be more appropriate.

The problem is that the sheet that contains the target cell hosts a very sizable used range and the FIND function can sometimes take almost a minute before finding and focussing on the required cell.

While I do not believe that a search range below that of sheet level for the FIND() function is possible, the cell that I am looking to jump to resides in a one-column, sorted, dynamic named range (=Bookings!JobID) on the target sheet, so I am sure that it must be possible to find and go the target cell in a much quicker timeframe than that being delivered at the moment. Just can't find something suitable at the moment.

## Nested IF(SEARCH The String In Column)

Dec 17, 2008

Column A contains an alphanumeric string up to 50 characters in length. I need a formula to search the string in Column A for the word "Appeal" and place that word in Column B when found. Likewise for the words "Grievance" and "Complaint". If none of the three words are found in Column A, the contents of Column B should be blank. Here's the formula I've played around with (it works on the first line but returns #VALUE! on following lines):

=IF(SEARCH("Appeal",A1),"Appeal",IF(SEARCH("Grievance",A1),"Grievance",IF(SEARCH("Complaint",A1),"Co mplaint","")))

I've tried entering it as an array, but that also fails. This seems like a pretty simple problem ,but I've spent several hours trying to make the formula work so I'm obviously doing something wrong.

## Lookup Nth Occurence In Range & Limit Rows To Search Based On Cell Value

Jan 14, 2009

I have a UDF for a lookup_occurrence formula (thanks to Dave), and I was wondering if it was possible to tweak the range it looks at with if statements.

I have a formula like this =Lookup_Occurence(B13, INDIRECT(\$N\$5), 1,1,5) where N5 says exit card 1.

I need it to only look at a certain rows within exit card 1 depending on the value entered in I5.

If value I5 says Period_1 it will only look in rows 12:46.

If value I5 says Period_2 it will only look in rows 48:82 etc.

I believe I need to modify the xl look part of the code with if statements.

Below is the code. I am wondering if I can replace the xlLook line with nested if statements. If I5="Period_1 then rows 12:46" etc.

Function Lookup_Occurence(To_find, Table_array As Range, _
Look_in_col As Long, Offset_col, Occurrence As Long, _
Optional Case_sensitive As Boolean, Optional Part_cell_match As Boolean)

Dim lLoop As Long
Dim rFound As Range
Dim xlLook As XlLookAt
Dim lOcCheck As Long

## ISERROR #VALUE?

Jul 26, 2007

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 ....

## If Statement With Iserror

Jun 12, 2009

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

## If(iserror) And If(n) - Any Difference

Aug 27, 2009

I 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?

## Multiple IF’s With ISERROR

Nov 5, 2009

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

## How To Use Iserror To Replace #value!

Nov 25, 2008

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

## IF (ISERROR) Macro?

Oct 6, 2005

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.

## Sumifs With Iserror?

Oct 15, 2009

I have the formula below which sums range dv77:dv81, if dy77:dy81 is not an error. Works perfectly.

={SUM(IF(ISERROR(DY77:DY81),"",DV77:DV81))}

However I cannot seem to modify it correctly to work with a sumifs formula. Could someone please show me how it might work?, or a workaround?

For reference the sumifs would sum range(DV77:DV81), if range(E77:E81) is "Neutrogena" and range (A77:A81) is "9".

## #DIV/0! Still Apearing When Using ISERROR

Jun 23, 2006

I want to conditionally delete rows if the date in the row is later than today. For example, I have a table that has a set number of rows and columns, however the dates included vary. The first column of each row has a date. I want to compare that date to "=today()" which is in another cell in the same worksheet.

## If Iserror Calculation

Jul 7, 2006

This calculation sits quite happily in a workbook doing what it is supposed to do.

=IF(ISERROR(1- OFFSET(INPUT70!\$A\$1,20+B3,2)/OFFSET(INPUT70!\$A\$1,19+B3,2)-1),0,1-OFFSET(INPUT70!\$A\$1,20+B3,2)/OFFSET(INPUT70!\$A\$1,19+B3,2)-1)

In a sister worksheet is this calculation

=IF(ISERROR(1-OFFSET(INPUT71!\$A\$1,20+B3,2)/OFFSET(INPUT71!\$A\$1,19+B3,2)-1),0,1-OFFSET(INPUT71!\$A\$1,20+B3,2)/OFFSET(INPUT71!\$A\$1,19+B3,2)-1)

The name of the worksheet is all that is different.

## Combining ISERROR And CONCATENATE.

Mar 25, 2009

I got this last night, and decided to see if I can combine two equations if possible. Here is what I have:

## Where To Put Put The 'iserror' To Remove #n/a When Using Conditions

Nov 16, 2009

=IF(E13<P13,SUM(F13-P13),SUM(F13-E13))

I can't work out where to put iserror to take away any error messages - i've been fiddling round for half and hour and cant work it out.

## ISERROR At End Of IF Statement Returns A #VALUE!

Nov 21, 2008

I've written (with help from here) and IF statement, as below;
=IF('Raw - NUS'!G45="","",VALUE(TRIM(CLEAN('Raw - NUS'!G45))))

The issue is, that not all cells in my array are "" or a value, some are " " and some are " " which gives a FALSE to the arguement and returns a #VALUE! in the cell. Is there a way I can add an ISERROR to the FALSE, VALUE(TRIM(CLEAN('Raw - NUS'!G45))), result make this blank? I've tried OR, but it doesn't work.

## Combining IF Statement With ISERROR

Jan 14, 2009

I have this formula, which works

## ISERROR Funtion Into An IF AND Statement

Sep 23, 2009

I am trying to nest an ISERROR funtion into an IF AND statement.

Column B D E F
Cases Case Pack Reg Price VPR Price
1 14 2.25 0.00
1 14 1.75 2.00

When the value of F is zero, I want the formula to be B1*D1*E1, when the value of F is not zero, I want the formula to be F1*D1*B1. I can figure this part out. The problem is I have these values on a certain number of rows and I want a grand total at the bottom, but the rows that do not have values in them are giving me a #VALUE! error, which is messing up the grand total. I am not sure how to write the formula with the IF AND and ISERROR functions.

## If Vlookup Iserror = Msgbox

Jun 13, 2006

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

## Iserror Function For Vlookup

Aug 8, 2006

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: ....

## Vba To Wrap If(iserror) Around Formula

Sep 20, 2006

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))

## Iserror Formula Still Returning Div#0

Apr 11, 2007

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?

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

Sep 16, 2009

How 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))

## Run Match Function Combined With If And Iserror

Mar 4, 2014

I'm trying to run a match function combined with If and Iserror. I need this because I want to see if a given item number in one cell in one sheet in excel is ALSO located in a given range in another excel sheet. If that number is found, I want the result to say "yes". If the item number is NOT also found in the given range in the other workbook, I want it to say "no". This is what I have so far:

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(\$C9,'Case Usage Summary'!\$A\$2:\$A\$45138,0))=FALSE,"Yes","No")

The problem so far is that this is actually giving me the wrong results. For instance, the above function attempts to located cell C9, denoted as item number 964, in another sheet called Case Usage Summary in the range between A2 and A45138. If it could find 964 in that range in the Case Usage Summary sheet, it should give an answer of "yes", if it couldn't then it should give an answer of "no". The problem is that it gave me an answer of "no", but I just looked through the list of item numbers in the case usage summary sheet and there IS in fact a item number 964 entered in the range. What is going on here? I tried this for some of the other cells, and it is just giving me "no" for all of them. What is going on?
