vlookup

I have two worksheets: the main worksheet has all the employees with the
employee number in column A sorted ascending and years of service in col D.
The workbrain worksheet has employee numbers in A and my formula in G which
is:

vlookup(a2,main!a2:d1491,4)
the information is correct that is returned, but I have employees that is on
the workbrain sheet and not on the main, and it is pulling in 10.75 on these
10 cells. Is there a way to add to my formula that if it doesn't find that
emp # to bring in a 0?

Pammy,

Try this

=IF(COUNTIF(Main!A2:A1491,A2)=0,"Lookup Not
Found",VLOOKUP(A2,Main!A21491,4,FALSE))

or to return Null

=IF(COUNTIF(Main!A2:A1491,A2)=0,"",VLOOKUP(A2,Main!A21491,4,FALSE))

Yes, change your formula as follows:

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP((a2,main!a2:d1491,4,FALSE),0)

vlookup(a2,main!a2:d1491,4)

Try using the 4th argument and setting it to either 0 or FALSE;

=VLOOKUP(A2,main!A\$2\$1491,4,0)

=VLOOKUP(A2,main!A\$2\$1491,4,FALSE)

Another possible method:

=SUMIF(main!A\$2:A\$1491,A2,main!D\$2\$1491)
