How can I make my lookup formula return a zero or blank if it can't find my reference in the lookup range. Right now, it's returning the last value in the lookup range when it can't find a the reference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Try to use VLOOKUP instead of LOOKUP... See my contrib in

Either add these missing values to your table or use an IF function to test your lookup_value.
