In column A, I have 5 rows, a,b,c,d,e. In cell C1 have the value c.

In cells D1, I have this formula:

Code:
=Match(C1,A1:A5,0)

which returns 3 as expected.

If instead column A contained a, "",c,d,e and cell C1 contains a blank cell, the match function returns N/A.

How can I change to return the value of 2?

Thanks

Hi,
try this in D1

=IFERROR(MATCH(C1,A1:A5,0),2)

Hopefully this works for you.
