# 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: ....

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

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))

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'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?

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.

I am trying and failing to use this

If (IsError(Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(StartAT, GradeArray, 0))) Then

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.

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.

[Code]....

This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. $E3 is the date required, $BA$1:$DN$1 is the range the dates are entered in

Match: Lookup value = $E3

Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'$BA$1:$DN$1

match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. $A$4 is the department name, $B$434:$B$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = $A$4

Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'$B$434:$B$452

match type = 0

Index: array = $BA$434:$DN$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

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.

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 ....

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?

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

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.

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.

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?

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".

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.

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.

IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(E24;Sheet1!$A$6:$N$25000;10;FALSE))=0;"NOT FOUND";"FOUND")

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.

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.
