This is the formula "=IF(ISNUMBER(VLOOKUP(RC[-1],NSW!C1,1,0)),NSW!R2C6,IF(ISNUMBER(VLOOKUP(RC[4],NSW!C2,1,0)),NSW!R2C7,""))" Its working fine. I have the list of states with its local holidays, I need to add a condition to this formula, for EG if = "NSW" then it refers to NSW sheet and do the above function, ROWS and Columns are same for all the states

Is there a way to write a formula in a cell (Vlookup) and and also be able to type into that cell later if you dont want to use the Vlookup value? Kind of like a hidden formula (vlookup)

I need to remove an apostrophe from a column of 15K serial numbers.. (some are alphanumeric). I used the =clean function and it works. Now I need to remove the formula from the cell. When I use copy/paste values the apostrophe comes back. Ultimately I need this column of serial numbers for a vlookup. The original vlookup value does not have the apostrophe so I am always getting 'false' as a result.

I need to make a Formula with Nested IFs, currently i have =IF(C12<=500,VLOOKUP(C6,'Table 1'!B5:G35,3,FALSE)*Calculator!C12+250,IF(C12>=501<=1000,VLOOKUP(C6,'Table 1'!B5:G35,4,FALSE)*Calculator!C12+250,IF(C12>1001,VLOOKUP(C6,'Table 1'!B5:G35,3,FALSE)*Calculator!C12+250))) The part that isnt working is the C12>=501<=1000 and im not sure why!

Hi hope someone can help I have an extensive price file spread sheet within which I have set up a visual basic formula so that if any changes occur a date & time stamp appears in a cell. I then also have a Vlookup in place so in another location is someone views a particular product the said date appears using the below formula which works fine unless a product with no amendments is selected its returning a default date 00/01/1900 00:00 where I would prefer a blank empty cell. I realise there must be an IF statement to solve this but failing horribly to get it to work. Any help in the correct formula would be greatly appreciated. =VLOOKUP(H4,\$AO\$1:\$AP\$99999,2,FALSE) 00/01/1900 00:00 many thanks in advance

Vlookup returns #N/A but everything in formula looks correct. Data being looked up is 'general'. Does that matter? I usually use numbers.
