nested if statment - needs if(isna

I have the following formula, which works fine. It returns either the
date, or the word current if the date is <=5 from today.

IF(((TODAY())-(VLOOKUP(\$A\$3:\$A\$126,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$8770,4,FALSE)))< =5,"Current",(VLOOKUP(\$A\$3:\$A\$126,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$877 0,4,FALSE)))

My issue is that if there is no date for the selection in my vlookup,
it returns #n/a. I would like to get rid of that.

I have added the if(isna(vlookup...), however, then it returns either
the word True to False.

I have also tried
=if(isna(IF(((TODAY())-(VLOOKUP(\$A\$3:\$A\$126,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$8770,4,FALSE)))< =5,"Current",(VLOOKUP(\$A\$3:\$A\$126,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$877 0,4,FALSE))),

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

First you can remove 8 parenthesis, then use something like

=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(A3,Cons!\$C\$3:\$C\$126,0)),IF(TODA Y()-VLOOKUP(\$A\$3:\$A\$126,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$8770,4,FALSE)<=5, "Current",VLOOKUP(A3,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$8770,4,FALSE))," Not
N/A")

don't know why you are using the whole range in the lookup, do you enter
this formula in a 124 row array?

Try

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(\$A\$3:\$A\$126,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$8770,4,F ALSE)),"",IF(((TODAY())-(VLOOKUP(\$A\$3:\$A\$126,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$8770,4,FALSE)))< =5,"Current",(VLOOKUP(\$A\$3:\$A\$126,Cons!\$C\$3:\$F\$877 0,4,FALSE))))
