Thumbs up Answer: ISNUMBER & VLOOKUP

Yes, it is possible to use ISNUMBER and VLOOKUP together in Excel. The formula you provided is a good start, but it seems like you're having trouble completing it. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use ISNUMBER and VLOOKUP together:
[list=1][*]Start by typing the formula you provided:
Formula:
=IF(ISNUMBER(VLOOKUP(E2,Sheet2!$A$1:$B$35... 
[*]The first argument of the VLOOKUP function is the value you want to look up, which in this case is E2. The second argument is the range of cells that contains the data you want to search, which is Sheet2!$A$1:$B$35.
[*]The third argument of the VLOOKUP function is the column number of the data you want to return. In this case, you want to return the data in the second column, so the third argument should be 2.
[*]Now, you need to specify what to do if the VLOOKUP function returns an error. This is where the ISNUMBER function comes in. The ISNUMBER function checks whether the result of the VLOOKUP function is a number or not. If it is a number, it means the lookup was successful and the function will return TRUE. If it is not a number, it means the lookup was unsuccessful and the function will return FALSE.
[*]Finally, you need to specify what to do if the ISNUMBER function returns FALSE. In this case, you want to return a blank cell, so you can simply leave the last argument of the IF function blank.

Putting it all together, the complete formula should look like this:

Formula:
=IF(ISNUMBER(VLOOKUP(E2,Sheet2!$A$1:$B$35,2,FALSE)),"""Not Found"
This formula will check whether the value in cell E2 can be found in the range Sheet2!$A$1:$B$35. If it can be found, it will return a blank cell. If it cannot be found, it will return the text "Not Found".

Try with a test data

=IF(ISNUMBER(VLOOKUP(1,A1:B5,2,FALSE)),"Numeric"," Not a numeric")

I still can't get it right.....I get #N/A......my code is
=IF(ISNUMBER(VLOOKUP(C214,Email.Filters!$A$1:$B$15 ,2,FALSE)), " ",
VLOOKUP(C214,Email.Filters!$A$1:$B$15,2,FALSE))

I am trying to look for part of the word, infact using
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH works, but since the list is long I think Vlookup should
be the right way to do...please help.

Thanks.

Are you trying to check for an error when there's no match?

=if(isna(vlookup(e2,Sheet2!$a1:$b$35,2,false)),"",
vlookup(e2,Sheet2!$a1:$b$35,2,false))

The below formula applies only if you have a match.. If you want to handle
that use ISNA() or ISERROR() or if you are using 2007 use IfERROR().

=IF(ISNA(formula),"",VLOOKUP)

=IF(ISERROR(formula),"",VLOOKUP)

Default ISNUMBER & VLOOKUP

Hi Jacob / Dave,

I am trying to get result if the e-mail addresses contains
".us" = USA, ".ae" = UAE, ".jp" = Japan...and so on.

I used =IS(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(".us",C3)),"USA", " ") and
it works fine, but doesn't work if the search is more than 6 times.

I am using xl2003.

Thanks.
Mukesh

Since you're returning "" if there is no match, you could use:

=if(isnumber(search(".us",c3)),"USA","")
&if(isnumber(search(".ae",c3)),"UAE","")
&if(isnumber(search(".jp",c3)),"Japan","")

Or if those are always the last characters in email address:

You could build a table (in another sheet):

A B
jp Japan
US USA
ae UAE

Then this formula will return the characters after the last dot:

=MID(A1,FIND(CHAR(1),SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",CHAR(1),
LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",""))))+1,99)

(999 is just a number big enough to cover the worst case possibility)

So you could use an extra column (say B) that contains those last few characters
and use a formula like:

=vlookup(b1,sheet2!a:b,2,false)
or
=if(isna(vlookup(b1,sheet2!a:b,2,false)),"Not on list",
vlookup(b1,sheet2!a:b,2,false))

You could actually embed the first formula into the second, but it gets pretty
long.

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(MID(A1,FIND(CHAR(1),SUBSTITUTE(A1 ,".",CHAR(1),
LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",""))))+1,99),Sheet2!A:B,2,FA LSE)),
"Not on list",
VLOOKUP(MID(A1,FIND(CHAR(1),SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",CHAR (1),
LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",""))))+1,99),Sheet2!A:B,2,FA LSE))

========
If I were doing it, I'd use the table on the other sheet, extra column and
shorter formulas. I could hide that intermediate column if it was distracting.

But updating the table would be easier than adding more stuff to the long
concatenating formula (which is limited to 1024 characters when measured in R1C1
reference style).
