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.

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

VLOOKUP(LEFT($A2,8)&"*",Dashboard_EA!$A$199:$P$213,5,0))

Excel 2007 and beyond:
Rich (BB code):
=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")
