# Iserror Function For Vlookup

## 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: ....

Related Forum Messages:
If Vlookup Iserror = Msgbox
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 And Vlookup :: Of False Or N/A Is Found
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))

Combine Iserror Vlookup And Left Functions
XL 2003

I want to combine these three functions

=VLOOKUP(e4,AGTNAME!\$A\$1:\$E\$3086,5,0)
=LEFT(E4,FIND("/",E4)-1)
and iserror

Nested IF, ISERROR, VLOOKUP Formula Simplification
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.

ISERROR Function With Range Of Cells
How do I use the ISERROR function on a range. I have tried =ISERROR(A1:A10) but this doesn't work, it always gives the "true" output even if there is no error in that range.

IsError 1004 & Match Function In VBA Code
I am trying and failing to use this

StartAT is a text string that might be blank or a space or other invalid entry, GradeArray is a table which I am using to get a numeric value from a valid text entry. If the entry is invalid then I will use a value from an adjacent cell. The problem is that I get the 1004 error.

Vlookup Function Together With An Offset Function
I am trying to use the vlookup function together with an offset function but i am not getting it to work properly.

The situation is as follows:

I have a column E in which i use the vlookup function to find its corresponding value in B which in turn refers to a named range. However, the figure i want the function to return is 2 columns to the right and 2 rows above the value which the vlookup funtion finds in the first column.

I have though of using the offset function, but i cannot figure out how to make this work.

Vlookup With If Function

This Formula doesnt seem to work, it shows me either every row with found or not found..

If there is a match to E24 in other sheet and has a value in column 10 it should say found otherwise not found.

Vlookup Function
vlookup function. find whats wrong with my code

VLOOKUP W/ LEFT Function
Function sequence giving me "N/A": =VLOOKUP(LEFT(C6,5),H:I,2,FALSE)

Basically, I have numbers that each start with a unique sequence. The first 5 numbers of that sequence represent a certain cell carrier.

What I want to do is have the function look up the first 5 characters of a cell and depending on the 5 characters, I want it to return a certain value.

My idea with the vlookup was to have the lookup value be the first 5 digits and then in my table, it would take only those 5 digits and return a value I have specified in the second column.

VB Code Instead Of VLOOKUP Function
The code instead of Vlookup that I'm using at the moment. It takes too long if you have 40,000 to 50,000 rows of data.

The data that I have is something like the sample bebow:

Col A from A1 to A15 with numbers like:
20000000
20000001
20000002
20000003
20000004
20000005
20000006
20000007
20000008
20000009
20000010
20000011
20000012
20000013
20000014

Col C from C1 to C10 with numbers like:
20000000
20000001..............................

Vlookup Function To Look Up In A Table
I need to create a summary table of dates and data. The trick is I need the vlookup function to look up say 7/1/08 in a table that all the dates are of the format 7/20/08 and so on. Is there a way to have the vlookup return the proper data by ignoring the day.

Dual Vlookup Function
[IMG]file:///C:/Users/Paul/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]I need a fairly simple formula (I think) I have this table in another worksheet. I would like to be able to input select from a list "integrity" in A1 and from another list select "20" in A2 and then in A3 this mythical formula (if A1 = Integrity and A2 = 20, then 120%) I suppose i could write a ridiculously large if,then statement but I was thinking more of using a duel vlookup function.

Using A Vlookup Function In A Macro
I am trying to use the Vlookup function in a macro but I can't figure out how to write it. I am using a controlled loop to cycle through my data. So for the first entry, my lookup data is in cell A2. The lookup table is located in a sheet called 'Trade Table' and the lookup field is in Column B and value needed is in column C. The results go in column G. The excel formula is as follows:

Summing In A VLOOKUP Function
I have a vlookup function that is looking up a range of cells. I would like it to look in the range and then sum up all of the values that meet the criteria. At the moment it will only bring back the value of the first match it finds in the range, I would like it to bring back the sum of all the values it finds in the range, is this possible? Example:

Vlookup(Jan-08,\$a3:\$c\$7,column 4 values, 0), if Jan-08 is listed in the range more than once, I would like it to add up all the values in column 4 that match.

Use Mid Function In Vlookup
using the Mid function in Vlookup. I want to get the mid of the value which i get using vlookup. Example: if my Vlookup gives the value as "GSC 03-Parts & Service Systems-GSMS-Test " i want to use the mid function to get the a new value as 03. I'm using the below

Vlookup But Do Not Want To Use Concatenate Function
Trying to do Vlookup with If but dont know how , I can do the concatenate function and then Vlookup as in Sheet 3 but that is too much of load to deliver in quick time specially i have pull data in dynamic and continuous update.

Can We Use Multiple If With VLookup Function
I have to extract multiple words from the string using VLookup function.

(Example :"Cell A1 "This is the best example")

Example : Finding "This" from cell A1- result VLookup (Sheet1) A1:D12
Finding "IS" from cell A1- result VLookup (Sheet2) A1:D20
Finding "BEST" from cell A1- result "Excellect"
Need to haev function for this

VLOOKUP Or INDEX Function?
I tried with the VLookup, and HLookup and neither one worked for me. I have a reference table with all the data, and then input sheet where I want to bring this data by using one of the excel function. ie. When I enter office name on the top of the input page, I would like the Tax ID # in cell C3 to fill in using the excel function from the data on the reference tab. Same with cell C14 & C15. see attached for an example.

I am performing a vlookup in a worksheet and want to retrieve a hyperlink displayed on another worksheet in the same workbook.

The Vlookup finds the item I am looking for, but the hyperlink comes in as text. Do I need to perform the vlookup differently when trying to retrieve a hyperlink?

Avoid #N/A! In Vlookup Function
I have been reading and studying up on everything I can get my hands on with excel, and today I read the golden rules sticky. One of them confused me, so I need to understand, so I can follow it. "Don't Nest 2 Lookups To Avoid #N/A! Allow it to Occur and Reference Like: =IF(ISNA(A1),0,A1) and Hide the Lookup Column." I need cells to be empty instead of returning #N/A! So I nested using the ISNA. I do not understand the formula example above and hiding the lookup column. Here is the formula I have in one of the cells: How do I change it, so it returns an empty value instead of #n/a without nesting the lookup =IF(ISNA(IF(\$I\$8="Student",((VLOOKUP(\$J\$8,'Exit Card Data.xls'!Card1_1,2,FALSE)))/D33,IF(\$I\$8="Class",(HLOOKUP(\$J\$8,'Exit Card Data.xls'!Card1_1,28,FALSE))))),"",(IF(\$I\$8="Student",((VLOOKUP(\$J\$8,'Exit Card Data.xls'!Card1_1,2,FALSE)))/D33,IF(\$I\$8="Class",(HLOOKUP(\$J\$8,'Exit Card Data.xls'!Card1_1,28,FALSE))))))

Also I really need the cell to be empty if nothing has been entered in I8 or J8, but right now it returns FALSE. For what I am doing, it is important that the cell is empty if no data can be found.

VLOOKUP W/ RANK Or MAX Function
I am dumping data out of SAP, including the following fields:

* Vendor
* Material
* PO #
* Qty
* Amt
* Date

I would like to concatenate the material and vendor and pull in the PO # for the most recent date.

The VLOOKUP part is easy on the material/vendor, but I haven't had any luck in integrating a MAX, LARGE or RANK function to pull in the PO corresponding to the most recent date.

Once the PO # associated with the most current date can be identified for the material/vendor combination, I will need to utilize another vlookup to match the PO # up against a separate data file to pull in pricing. If anyone can think of a way to accomplish this in one step as opposed to multiple formulas.

Inserting Vlookup Function In All Workbooks
I have around 700 workbooks in a folder on my PC.

My master file(master database.xlsx) is kept open from which i have to Vlookup the values into these 700 workbooks.

The "agent Id" column is common in both the master database.xlsx as well as those other workbooks also.

The thing i want to do is i need the data from the "reporting supervisor" which is in the master database.xlsx file to be available in the G column of the other 700 books ( i have attached only 4 sample books). The G column can be then named as "Reporting Supervisor". Since "Agent ID" is available in both files we can vlookup taking this as a base. I have attached the 4 sample files out of 700 as well as the master database file in a zip file.

IS Empty Function Wih Vlookup
I have the following code for a vlookup , the code has to ckeck for each of the cells in column A . If the cells is empty , it should not run the vlookup and need to continueto the next cell. The Vlookup is running for the empty cells too.

Dim lastrow As Long
With Sheets("BS")
lastrow = .Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
End With

Combining A VLOOKUP And PRODUCT Function
I am using the following formula to calulate the compounded rate of return for a series of monthly returns: {=(PRODUCT(1+(b1:b100)/100)-1)*100}

I would like to be able to integrate a VLOOKUP function into the above formula so that it looks at the dates in column A and then apply the PRODUCT function above to the return values in column B that fall between start and end dates specified in cells C1 and D1.

Nest A SUM Function In A VLOOKUP?
I have a template with multiple sets of the same categories. I want to consolidate the data for each category in a summary. However - the template is expandable by using a macro - so the number of SETS of categories is not fixed. So a simple SUM function won't work since the list of cells expands. I don't want to re-write the formula each time and the method I have is "brute force" with lots of extra columns.

My thought - If I do a VLOOKUP for "Design" and the data is the "unit cost" column can a formula be written to see all the occurences of "Design" and SUM the "unit cost" returns?? example book is attached. hit the "add option" button to see the way the sheet expands.

Vlookup: Function That Will Search For The Value Of The Vehicle
I have a lookup table (see attached file) which holds the min & max value for a vehicle, the min & max size of the engine and the premium. I want a function that will search for the value of the vehicle (e.g. 100000 in cell H5) within the min value and max value columns as well as the engine size (e.g. 2000 in cell H6) in the min size & max size columns return the premium from the associated premium (which should be 13,200).

Pull Sheet Name From Vlookup Function
I have a vlookup formula which can refer to any one of several sheets labelled by month.

I need to be able to show in a different cell which sheet (month) the formula refers to.
In other words - displaying part of a formula in a different cell.

Using A Variabel ColumnIndex In Vlookup Function
I have to combine / add up 2 regions of data. To do so I have made a bit of code that determines the "old value" in a cell, then copies the 2nd value in the activecell, and as last, adds up the previous value. This works if I use a fixed number for the column_index. However, this column_number changes for each column.
Therefore I want to use the value of "j" as column_index. Simply adding this to the code doesn't seem to work. This is the code as I thought would do the trick:

Vlookup Function When Data May Not Exist
How can I Vlookup a table where some of the data is missing I want the sum -

=IF(P5<5,0,IF(P5<23,VLOOKUP(A5,CFT_MEDIA_INS!\$A\$4:\$W\$33,CAMPAIGNS!P5,FALSE),0))

to return 0 if A5 does not exist in the lookup table.

IF(AND...vlookup Function: That Looks In Column M1 To See If It Is Empty
I am trying to write a function that looks in column M1 to see if it is empty. If M1 is empty then check conditions if R1 = vlookup(R1,AA:DD,4,False) and if vlookup(E1,CC:EE,3,false) is true then vlookup(E1,FF:GG,2,False). If M1 is not empty then return back M1. I am trying to make a formula for this. This is what I have so far

IF(AND(M1="",VLOOKUP(E1,[may11requests.xls]Sheet1!\$I:\$R,10,FALSE)=E1,VLOOKUP(R1,[may11requests.xls]Sheet1!\$M:\$N,2,FALSE)=R1),VLOOKUP(E1,[may11requests.xls]Sheet1!\$I:\$K,3,FALSE),M1)

VLOOKUP Function In Macro Code
Is it possible to Call the inbuilt Excel Functions (like VLOOKUP) in Macros. we have to pouplate cells with formula which uses VLOOKUP. one way was to update each cell with required Formula like: [code] Range("A1").value = " = 6*F7*(1-Vlookup(lookupvalue........))"[code] but this was stupid as no of cell to be populated was large and variable and moreover it will return formulae to cells rather than fixed value. What we tried was to defile an table_array as Array(x y) and then use this array to return required VLOOKUP value. However I was thinking is there any way to call function like VLOOKUP in Macros so that we can return a value to cell rather than formula.

If/vlookup Function Returning N/a Error
My problem is that I am getting the N/A error in cell M3 if L3 is empty. I would like the forumla to 'ignore' cell L3 if it is empty. I do not want a zero put in there. I have looked up information on ISBLANK function but the more I read the more confused I am getting

Vlookup Function Not Updating When I Insert A Column
I have two sheets. One called "Roster" and one called "final". On the final sheet i have cols for each question on the final exam. I also have a total col which sums up the pts for each question.

On the "roster" sheet. This is kinda like a summary sheet. On this sheet i use a vlookup (shown below) in the cells which are supposed to reference the cells on the "final" sheet for the total pts.

Aggregate Function On Vlookup Array Not Working
I am trying to create a single cell formula that returns the min value of an array returned from a vlookup function. This is part of a more complex solution that I am trying to implement, but I think I have narrowed my problem down to this issue, so I have created a very simple example to demonstrate.

Cells A1 to B5 contain a lookup table:

table.tableizer-table {border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;} .tableizer-table td {padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc;}
.tableizer-table th {background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold;}

LetterNumber D4 C3 B2 A1

Cells A7 to C8 contain the input values:

table.tableizer-table {border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;} .tableizer-table td {padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc;}
.tableizer-table th {background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold;}..................

Vlookup Function To Return The Cell Address
Is there a way to get the vlookup function to return the cell address, rather than the value, of the lookup?

Apply A VLOOKUP Function To Schedule Sheet
I'm trying to apply a VLOOKUP function to my schedule sheet. Attached to this post is a copy of the sheet.

The shifts that I'm entering in B7:AC7 should be looked up in the table located at K21:Q25. I'd like the looked up value to display in B8:AC8.

Using VLOOKUP Return As Row Number In Function
I am wondering about the best syntax for using a VLOOKUP return as the row number in a CORREL function. I want to create rolling correlations from today's date. I have a VLOOKUP function that will return the row number corresponding to the chosen day's date. I now need to use that returned value in the CORREL function. That is, I would like it to look something like:

When I enter this, I am told that I have an error. Is there a better way to nest this vlookup?

Range Of Values In A Cell? Vlookup Function
Column A includes a name
Column B includes an age
Column C states a division (this is the column that contains the Vlookup function)

Column G is where I have to put a range of ages (for instance, x=<0,>3)
Column H is where the division name is.

The idea behind this exercise is to use the Vlookup function in column C to reference column G, and return a value in column H. Here a copy of my formula in column C: =VLOOKUP(B3,\$G\$3:\$H\$12,2,TRUE). For instance, if Mike (A) is 16 (B) then he would be in the Midget division (C). C is calculated by comparing column B to G, then returning a value in column H. For some odd reason, I can't get column G to reference an age range, such as 1-5 years old.

Use The Worksheet Function Vlookup On Subtotal Values
Is it possible to use the worksheet function Vlookup on subtotal values? If so what is the formula? The problem that I am trying to solve is as follows. I have a sheet (1) listing part numbers that are not moving at a particular depot. On another sheet (2) there are details of sales relating to the non-moving part numbers at 6 other depots, I have added subtotals. Currently I am switching between worksheets to see if I can transfer stock. I would like to id on sheet 1 the total number of sales at other depots, then I can see what part numbers may be transferrable without a great deal of manual intervention.

Add Vlookup Function To Range With Macro
I wanna have a Vlookup Macro function in my spreadsheet. I perform a vlookup in the spreadsheet by using vlookup formula and I found out that it is waste of time to retrieve records from other file when I have a total of 55000 records in one spreadsheet. I plan to use macro functions to retrieve records instead of using vlookup formula. So is there any chance that I can create the macro based on my scenario? {i already attached my spreadsheet here, it is a dump data}

In the sample1.xls, I want to retrieve the records from the sample2.xls by using Material as the key field. When I run the Vlookup Macro, the system is able to help me lookup the value such as (Net Sales: January until Net Sales: March) and display the records in the sample1.xls based on the Material Key Field. So hope that my problems can be solve here.

VLookup Function In Macro To Populate Cell
If I put this in a cell it works fine =VLOOKUP(B3,DateRange,2,0) If I tell VBA to write that formula, it works fine.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-44],DateRange,2,0)"

If I put this in VBA: Range("AK1").Value = Application.VLookup(Range("B3").Value, Range("DateRange"), 2, False)

I get #N/A. I'm stumped - any ideas why this would happen, or how I can work this into my code? I need the vlookup to occur 1000s of times, and don't want to have to put the formula in the spreadsheet because I just want the results, not the formula.

ISERROR #VALUE?
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 ....

Excel VLOOKUP AVG Function? Plant Metrics
Basically I'm trying to streamline the way my company does it's metrics. I have a sample excel sheet attached. This data is copied and pasted into excel every week from our documentation operating system.
The numbers in red as you scroll down are time averages for that particular product stream which have to manually inputted which can be time consuming.

Would there be a way i could paste this info into excel and for it to insert these averages for each product stream automatically? It doesn't matter where these averages are placed, they don't have to be directly under the respective product stream.

IF (ISERROR) Macro?
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.

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

Sumifs With Iserror?
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".

Multiple IF’s With ISERROR
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
