# Return Empty if "#N/A"

#### ckroon

Hi all.
I have this formula in many cells on a sheet:

=IF(ROWS(\$1:4)>\$CQ\$7,"",INDEX(\$A:\$CK,\$CL\$4+ROWS(\$1:4),MATCH(\$CP\$5,\$A\$1:\$CK\$1,0)))

It works great except I need it to return as empty if the result is #N/A.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

### Excel Facts

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Try

=IF(ROWS(\$1:4)>\$CQ\$7,"",IF(COUNTIF(\$A\$1:\$CK\$1,\$CP\$5),INDEX(\$A:\$CK,\$CL\$4+ROWS(\$1:4),MATCH(\$CP\$5,\$A\$1:\$CK\$1,0)),""))

Nope

Came back as #N/A as well.
Good idea though.

So what's casuing the error? Do you have #N/As within the INDEX range? Try

=IF(ROWS(\$1:4)>\$CQ\$7,"",IF(ISNA(INDEX(\$A:\$CK,\$CL\$4+ROWS(\$1:4),MATCH(\$CP\$5,\$A\$1:\$CK\$1,0))),"",INDEX(\$A:\$CK,\$CL\$4+ROWS(\$1:4),MATCH(\$CP\$5,\$A\$1:\$CK\$1,0)))

Solved

That was it!

It c orrected it to this:
=IF(ROWS(1:4)>\$CQ\$7,"",IF(ISNA(INDEX(\$A:\$CK,\$CL\$4+ROWS(1:4),MATCH(\$CP\$5,\$A\$1:\$CK\$1,0))),"",INDEX(\$A:\$CK,\$CL\$4+ROWS(1:4),MATCH(\$CP\$5,\$A\$1:\$CK\$1,0))))

and it works like a charm.

Thanks so much!
