# If match doesn't exist #N/A

Hi,
Is there anyway when using the match function to get a blank cell "" or 0 if the match doesn't exist. Currently, if a match doesn't exist I get #N/A.
Thanks,
BX

Hello,

Try this formula, change the cell refs as required.

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(D11,F12:F15,0)),"",MATCH(D11,F12:F15,0))

Any good?

Correction: [2] should be...

=IF(ISNUMBER(SETV(MATCH(LValue,1D_LTable,0))),GETV(),"")
