Hi.

I am using the following vlookup:
=VLOOKUP(LEFT($A2,8)&"*",Dashboard_EA!$A$199:$P$213,5,0).

When the formula is not finding a value, it is returning #N/A.
I wish to replace this #N/A with "NO DATA".

Please advise me on how I should write the formula.

Thank you.
 

Excel Facts

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.
Hi,

=if(ISNA(VLOOKUP(LEFT($A2,8)&"*",Dashboard_EA!$A$199:$P$213,5,0)),"No Data",
VLOOKUP(LEFT($A2,8)&"*",Dashboard_EA!$A$199:$P$213,5,0))

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(LEFT($A2,8)&"*",Dashboard_EA!$A$199:$P$213,5,0),"NO DATA")

Prior versions:
Rich (BB code):
=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(LEFT($A2,8)&"*",Dashboard_EA!$A$199:$A$213,0)),
    VLOOKUP(LEFT($A2,8)&"*",Dashboard_EA!$A$199:$P$213,5,0),
    "NO DATA")
