Hi,
Wrap your entire formula within IFNA:
=IFNA(your formula,value if na)
The following formula works well as long as the vlookup finds data. I need to work an IFNA into this formula, but since I have an "IF" condition before the vlookup, I can't add ifna in front of the vlookup or I will get an error of to many arguments. Am I missing a simple work-around on this?
=IF(B3="","",IF(C3="","Enter Name",IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=1,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Jan-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=2,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Feb-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=3,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Mar-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=4,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Apr-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=5,(VLOOKUP($C3,'May-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=6,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Jun-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=7,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Jul-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=8,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Aug-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=9,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Sep-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=10,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Oct-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=11,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Nov-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=12,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Dec-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),0))))))))))))))
Thanks,

Hi,
Wrap your entire formula within IFNA:
=IFNA(your formula,value if na)
I guess I am not following. This say to many arguments too.
=IFNA(B6="","",IF(C6="","Enter Name",IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=1,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Jan-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=2,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Feb-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=3,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Mar-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=4,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Apr-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=5,(VLOOKUP($C6,'May-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=6,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Jun-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=7,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Jul-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=8,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Aug-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=9,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Sep-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=10,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Oct-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=11,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Nov-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=12,(VLOOKUP($C6,'Dec-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),0)))))))))))))),0)
Thanks,

No, Wrap your ENTIRE ORIGINAL formula within IFNA:
=IFNA(IF(B3="","",IF(C3="","Enter Name",IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=1,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Jan-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=2,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Feb-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=3,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Mar-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=4,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Apr-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=5,(VLOOKUP($C3,'May-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=6,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Jun-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=7,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Jul-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=8,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Aug-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=9,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Sep-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=10,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Oct-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=11,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Nov-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),IF('PFP Goals'!$C$39=12,(VLOOKUP($C3,'Dec-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498,3,FALSE)),0))))))))))))))

I may be mistaken, but I believe the max number of Nested IF statements is 7. Currently you have 12. You would most likely do better by utilizing hidden "helper columns" which would enable you to separate your IF statements. You could then reference back to the hidden columns using another IF formula. Let me know if you need assistance with this or if it what I said doesn't make sense.
Helper columns are the way of the future!

Awesome. Thank you!
Jeff
You're welcome.
That's true for Excel versions prior to 2010, since Excel 2010, you can nest up to 64 levels.

Even though 64 levels are allowed, generally speaking, a formula that long is hard to read and understand. You can condense that entire formula to something like this:
=IFNA(IF(B3="","",IF(C3="","Enter Name",VLOOKUP($C3,INDIRECT("'"&TEXT(DATE(2000,'PFP Goals'!$C$39,1),"mmm")&"-Pay Paste'!$C$4:$Z$498"),3,FALSE))),"")
using the INDIRECT to select the sheet instead of 12 levels of IFs.
Cheers,

When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
