Hello,

Can someone help me with the V-lookup formula for this action?

I would like to auto-fill Sheet 1 C2 with the date from Sheet 2 C2. I would also like to copy the formula down and if there is no date in Sheet 2 C2 then Sheet 1 C2 would be blank. Right now my formula: =IFERROR(VLOOKUP($A2,Sheet2!$A$2:$C$2,3,0),"") is returning with "01/00/00" when there is no date in Sheet 2.

Sheet 1
ABC
1Project #TotalWeek-ending Date
2123$50(V-lookup Formula)

<tbody>
</tbody>


Sheet 2
ABC
1Project #ClientWeek-ending Date
2123Carol9/16/2014

<tbody>
</tbody>

Thank you BobUmlas. How do I format the date to where I can type the ;;? I've used the Number drop down tool and changed the format of Sheet1 column C to short date.
