I have a VLOOKUP formula where if the result is "#N/A" or "0" I want the cell to return the text "not provided".

I'm sure a nested formula would work, but I can't figure it out. Here's my formula at present:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP([Tracker Site ID],Table17,5,0)),"not provided",VLOOKUP([Tracker Site ID],Table17,5,0))

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

Try

=IF(OR(ISNA(VLOOKUP([Tracker Site ID],Table17,5,0)),VLOOKUP([Tracker Site ID],Table17,5,0)=0),"not provided",VLOOKUP([Tracker Site ID],Table17,5,0))
