Hi everyone

Are you able to help, im using a vlookup to return text in a coloumn on a different tab if there is a match based on a cell in my main working tab.

This currently looks at my August tab but I would also like it to return any text from a previous month too i.e a July tab

My curren formula here works for one return

=VLOOKUP('Current Extract'!F6, 'August 2020'!F:V,16,FALSE)

But I need something like this, can someone help how to merge 2 VLOOKUPs as I'm getting an error 😢

=VLOOKUP('Current Extract'!F6, 'August 2020'!F:V,16,FALSE)&VLOOKUP('Current Extract'!F6, 'July 2020'!F:V,16,FALSE)

Any ideas?

Try wrapping them both in an iferror
=iferror(VLOOKUP('Current Extract'!F6, 'August 2020'!F:V,16,FALSE),"")&iferror(VLOOKUP('Current Extract'!F6, 'July 2020'!F:V,16,FALSE),"")

Do you mean workbook, or worksheet?
