Is there anyway to write just ONE formula to get 0 when the #N/A is a result in the Vlookup?
Here is my Example:

Column H
=IF(VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!$A$4:$B$38,2,0),"0",VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!$A$4:$B$38,2,FALSE))

Column I
=ISNA(H2)

Column J
=IF(I2=TRUE,"0",H2)
 

Excel Facts

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

You should have:

In H2: =VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!$A$4:$B$38,2,0)

In I2: =IF(ISNA(H2),0,H2)

Note. I replaced FALSE with 0 which means the same thing to Excel.

The foregoing is one way to avoid #N/A. Other, single formula, alternatives are discussed in the thread Paddy quotes.

An additional option is:

=IF(ISNA(SETV(VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!$A$4:$B$38,2,0))),"",GETV())

if you and your users have installed the morefunc add-in, available from:

For the #na issue, I usually use IFERROR.
IE: =IFERROR(VLOOKUP,RANGE,COLUMN,FALSE),0)
