    I need this formula shorter and simpler.

    =if(c6=11,"",if(c6=0,"",vlookup(c6,dutycode!$a$4:$d$14,4,)))

    column/row c6 has the code 11,
    but if a "0" is put in place of 11, "#N/A" will appear. So I added, if c6=0,"" will make "#N/A" disappear.
    Is there an easier way if c6 is blank or a "0" is place in c6.
    I saw a posting someplace like =if(a1=11,a1=0,e4) I think it is an IF(or( type statement.

    Hi

    Don't confuse shorter with better or more effiecient, often not the case. But here are 2 more options.

    =IF(OR(C6=11,C6=0),"",VLOOKUP(C6,dutycode!$A$4:$D$14,4,))


    =IF(COUNTIF(dutycode!$A$4:$A$14,C6)=0,"",VLOOKUP(C6,dutycode!$A$4:$D$14,4))


    I alos note you haven't used False as the Range_lookup argument, you may want to change that?
