Default VLOOKUP returns a 0 and I want a blank

This is my formula, how do I get a blank instead of a 0?
=VLOOKUP(B4,'[New Number Scheme.xls]Conveyor Schedule'!$A:$AD,11,FALSE)

Thumbs up Answer: VLOOKUP returns a 0 and I want a blank

To get a blank instead of a 0 when using the VLOOKUP function, you can use the IFERROR function to check if the VLOOKUP returns an error, and if so, return a blank. Here's how you can modify your formula:
  1. =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B4,'[New Number Scheme.xls]Conveyor Schedule'!$A:$AD,11,FALSE),"")

In this modified formula, the IFERROR function checks if the VLOOKUP function returns an error (which would happen if the lookup value is not found in the table), and if so, returns a blank. If the VLOOKUP function returns a value, that value is displayed as usual.

easiest way is:

=IF(VLOOKUP(B4,'[New Number Scheme.xls]Conveyor
Schedule'!$A:$AD,11,FALSE)=0,"",VLOOKUP(B4,'[New Number Scheme.xls]Conveyor
Schedule'!$A:$AD,11,FALSE))

Use an IF statement like such, change ranges to suit your sheet.

=IF(VLOOKUP(A1,G1:H3,2,0)=0,"",VLOOKUP(A1,G1:H3,2, 0))

Hi,
This page wraps long formulas, inserting annoying characters in the process.
You will probably find an extra space at each wrap point which you'll have
to remove.
ie after the first instance of Conveyor - remove one space
after the second instance of Number - remove one space
after the second instance of Conveyor - remove one space
Regards - Dave.

I think you just need to remove the second "equal" sign and there is a space
just before the second "equal" sign.

=IF(VLOOKUP(B4,'[New Number Scheme.xls]Conveyor
Schedule'!$A:$AD,11,0)=0,"",VLOOKUP(B4,'[New Number Scheme.xls]Conveyor
Schedule'!$A:$AD,11,0)
