# Return a Blank if Error OR 0

Hi guys,

Wondering if anybody a help with the following:

I am currently using the following formula to return blanks when an error results from 'E25' being blank:

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(E25,'WORKSHEET'!\$A\$1:\$S\$1000,19,FALSE,"")

However, when E25 is not blank but row '19' in '\$A\$1:\$S\$1000' has no results, the formula returns a '0'.

In the case of there being no result to return, I'd like there also to be a blank (and for there to only not be a blank when there is a result to return - 'YES or 'NO' being the only 2 returnable options in this case).

I have tried OR and AND formulae but with no success.

I'm tired so maybe I have missed something.

Any help would be much appreciated.

=IF(VLOOKUP(E25,WORKSHEET!\$A\$1:\$S\$1000,19,FALSE)=0,"",IFERROR(VLOOKUP(E25,WORKSHEET!\$A\$1:\$S\$1000,19,FALSE),""))

Hi Fluff. That would error before the iferror ever had its chance. Maybe wrap the if rather than the vlookup.

=IFERROR(IF(VLOOKUP(E25,WORKSHEET!\$A\$1:\$S\$1000,19,FALSE)=0,"",VLOOKUP(E25,WORKSHEET!\$A\$1:\$S\$1000,19,FALSE)),"")

Excellent point, I obviously wasn't thinking clearly :banghead:

I forget to think all the time

You could also do this if the lookup is producing text results:

=IFERROR(""&VLOOKUP(E25,WORKSHEET!\$A\$1:\$S\$1000,19,FALSE),"")

Hi guys, thanks a lot for the replies.

Will give both options a go and get back to you!

Don't bother trying my suggestion from post#2, as Steve pointed out it won't always work.

Steve the Fish - Your solution works perfectly. You are clearly either a genius or some sort of divine entity.

Cheers!
