# Multiple VLOOKUPS

#### Alex

Hi, I'm trying to use IF & VLOOKUP formulas to find data in a spreadsheet but
I can't seem to work with multiple arguments. This is the formula I'm using:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$M11,'Data
Table'!\$B\$2:\$S\$350,8,FALSE)),"",IF(VLOOKUP(\$M11,'Data
Table'!\$B\$2:\$S\$350,8,FALSE)=0,"",VLOOKUP(M11,'Data
Table'!\$B\$2:\$S\$350,8,FALSE)))

I've replaced my source data location with Data Table to make it shorter.
What I'm looking for it to do is show the result of the VLOOKUP when the
result doesn't equal an error or "0". I've tried OR as well and that doesn't
seem to work either. Whatever the outcome I get blank cells.

Thanks

Try
=IF(IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$M11,'Data
Table'!\$B\$2:\$S\$350,8,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(\$M11,'Data
Table'!\$B\$2:\$S\$350,8,FALSE))=0,"",VLOOKUP(\$M11,'Data
Table'!\$B\$2:\$S\$350,8,FALSE))

I have put the ISERROR check inside
IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$M11,'Data
Table'!\$B\$2:\$S\$350,8,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(\$M11,'Data Table'!\$B\$2:\$S\$350,8,FALSE)

.... and =0 test outside. Once this works then you can tweak it...

Which version are you using? 2003?

Is your Cell M11 Value available in Col B ?

I'm using 2003. I've just tried that and now it's back to resulting in an #NA
error. It accepts the formula just doesn't seem to be answering the arguments.

No I'm using multiple tables to get results for different teams so have a
number of them from column B - K and then another set from column M - T with
column M being where the lookup value is. My tables in columns B - K work
fine as they only use one argument (ISERROR) where these need to be able to
say if the result is an error or if it's "0". Hope someone can help as I keep
trying different things with no luck.

Thanks
