# Vlookup and IF Statement

I'm trying to automate a spreadsheet that calculates pay rates based on weekend weekday and public holidays. I have column A as the date starting 01/01/2019 Column B has the formula =TEXT(A1,"dddd") to add the day.

Column C is a Vlookup to a Public Holidays table using the formula =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A1,\$G\$2:\$I\$17,3,FALSE))," ",VLOOKUP(A1,\$G\$2:\$I\$17,3,FALSE)). Column D is an IF Statement to pull Columns B & C together =IF(C1="Bank Holiday",C1,B1). there is then another formula that calculates the pay rate depending the day

Does anyone know if there is a way to combine the IF(ISNA formula in Column C with the IF statement in Column D?

Many Thanks

Firstly, assuming that you are not using a real old version of Excel, this formula:
Code:
``[COLOR=#333333]=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A1,\$G\$2:\$I\$17,3,FALSE))," ",VLOOKUP(A1,\$G\$2:\$I\$17,3,FALSE))``
can be simplified to this:
[/COLOR]
Code:
``````[COLOR=#333333]=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,\$G\$2:\$I\$17,3,FALSE),"")
[/COLOR]``````
So, couldn't you just use:
Code:
``````[COLOR=#333333]=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,\$G\$2:\$I\$17,3,FALSE),B1)
[/COLOR]``````
