Vlookup returns zero if the particular cell is blank. is there any way by which the result is blank instead of zero.
 

Excel Facts

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

Use an IF statement.
=if(vlookup(A1,B:D,2,0)=0,"",vlookup(A1,B:D,2,0))

IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,1:65536,3,FALSE))," ",VLOOKUP(A1,1:65536,3,FALSE))
