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".

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))

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")``````
