Default Make #N/A blank if no value is returned

Using VLOOKUP some of my values are #N/A. The formula I am using is:

=VLOOKUP(1,$X$10:$Z$17,3,FALSE)

If the value returned is #N/A how can I make it display blank or null?

Thumbs up Answer: Make #N/A blank if no value is returned

Hi Babs! I can definitely help you with that.

To make the #N/A value display as blank or null, you can use the IFERROR function in Excel. This function allows you to specify what value should be displayed if an error occurs in a formula.

Here's how you can modify your formula to display a blank cell if the VLOOKUP function returns #N/A:
  1. =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(1,$X$10:$Z$17,3,FALSE),"")

In this formula, the IFERROR function wraps around your existing VLOOKUP function. The first argument of the IFERROR function is the VLOOKUP function itself, and the second argument is the value you want to display if the VLOOKUP function returns an error (in this case, an empty string).

So if the VLOOKUP function returns a valid value, that value will be displayed in the cell. But if the VLOOKUP function returns #N/A, the IFERROR function will catch the error and display an empty cell instead.

I hope that helps!

Default Make #N/A blank if no value is returned

you can also use conditional formatting in the spreadsheet..
use the formula =iserror(ref) where ref is the reference to the cells in the
worksheet. With this, use the formatting as text color white. You can
actually apply this to the entire worksheet and not just for the specific
#N/A cells. it would work coz the formula and formatting would make the cells
having #N/A blank.

And if you're using xl2007, take a look at =iferror() in Excel's help.

You've probably already had your answer to this, as Google Groups
hasn't updated since about 2pm yesterday, but in case you haven't then
try this:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(1,$X$10:$Z$17,3,FALSE)),"",VLOOKU P(1,$X$10:$Z
$17,3,FALSE))

Hope this helps.

Try

=If(Countif($X$10:$X$17,1)0,Vlookup(1,$X$10:$Z$17 ,3,FALSE),"")

Enter

Babs

One way is:

=if(VLOOKUP(1,$X$10:$Z$17,1)=1,=VLOOKUP(1,$X$10:$Z $17,3) ,"")

Good luck.

Try this:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(1,$A$10:$C$17,3,FALSE))," ",VLOOKUP(1,$A$10:$C
$17,3,FALSE))

Try this (not tested):

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(1,$X$10:$Z$17,3,FALSE)),"",VLOOKU P(1,$X$10:$Z
$17,3,FALSE))

You could try

isna(vlookup....)

or

iserror(vlookup...) for including other errors such as #REF!

the easiest way is =
if(iserror(VLOOKUP(1,$X$10:$Z$17,3,FALSE)),"",(VLO OKUP(1,$X$10:$Z$17,3,FALSE))

This way a "blank" is displayed
