# Vlookup Formula to return "Item in stocK' if there is a match or "not in stock" if no match

I have the following formula below

Code:
`` =IF(IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A5,'[Group Stock Report.xlsm]shirts'!\$J:\$J,COLUMNS(J:J),FALSE),VLOOKUP(A5,'[Group Stock Report.xlsm]Trousers'!\$I:\$I,COLUMNS(I:I),FALSE))="","Item in stock","item Sold")``

The ref number in the source file is in Col A

Kindly amend my formula so that where the ref in Col A matches the ref for Shirts in Col J or trousers in Col I then return "item in stock" or "item sold"

Your assistance in this regard is most appreciated

### Excel Facts

What is the last column in Excel?
Excel columns run from A to Z, AA to AZ, AAA to XFD. The last column is XFD.

=IF((IFERROR(MATCH(A5, '[Group Stock Report.xlsm]shirts'!\$J:\$J, 0),0)+IFERROR(MATCH(A5, '[Group Stock Report.xlsm]trousers'!\$I:\$I, 0),0)) > 0 , "item in stock", "item sold")
