I have a sheet with lots of IFERROR and VLOOKUP formulas. If I want to add two VLOOKUP formulas together, how do I create an IFERROR if no value is returned?

This is my current formula. I'm adding two VLOOKUP values together and dividing by two. I want to create an IFERROR if no value is returned.

=(VLOOKUP($G4,'C Round 24'!$D:$M,10,FALSE)+(VLOOKUP($G4,'C Round 24'!$S:$AB,10,FALSE)))/2

I think the 2nd one really can answer the question that you have

Not exactly. Are you able to fix the formula for me? Those involve nested formulas where one task is provided, then if there's an error, it moves to the next one. That's not what I'm trying to do here.

could you please let me know what error msg you get for this formula?

User

I don't get an error from that formula. That one works. I just don't know how to add the IFERROR part. When I try, its says there are two few arguments.

Yes. I believe it will work similar as IF function

Can you send me the example?

which means, you will need to define 3 parameters rather than 2

User

OK, it's working without dividing by two.

User

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP($G5,'C Round 24'!$D:$M,2,FALSE)+(VLOOKUP($G5,'C Round 24'!$S:$AB,2,FALSE)),"-")

IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,table,2,FALSE),"Not found")

User

Now, how do I add then divide the two VLOOKUP values by two

Excelchat Expert

What is "$G5,'C "

Excelchat Expert
22/07/2017 - 02:45

I'm not sure what that does

User

It's looking back to the cell G5 for the name listed.

Also, please double check the brackets that you added

Then, you will need to look at the logic that you designed
