Can someone please help,

Is there any way to not show the error "#N/A" when a formula is waiting for criteria

my formula is ;

=INDEX(Supplier!$C$5:$C$505,MATCH(B12,Supplier!$A$ 5:$A$505,0),0)

and works fine when i enter a line, but until i enter the line it shows #N/A and looks un professional

Any ideas

Kind Regards

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.

You can use the ISNA function, i.e.

=IF(ISNA(formula),"",formula)
replace the two formula references with your formula

You should only put an equal sign at the very beginning of your formula, and whatch your parentheses i.e.

=IF(ISNA(INDEX(Supplier!$C$5:$C$505,MATCH(B6,Supplier!$A$5:$A$505,0),0),"",INDEX(Supplier!$C$5:$C$505,MATCH(B6,Supplier!$A$5:$A$505,0),0))
