    Formula to return a custom value of "Asset Needs added to DB" if the #N/A error is return

    I've tried several different variations of this formula and cannot seem to work it out. I've tried it with IFNA,ISNA, IFERROR. I'm sure it's something simple that i"m just overlooking. Anyone that can assist with this, your help would be more than appreciated. I'm trying to make the formula return a custom value of "Asset Needs added to DB" if the #N/A error is returned.

    =IF(VLOOKUP(Data!D2,'PBU Central Master'!A:C,3,FALSE)=Data!C2,"With Same ID", "With Different ID"),IFNA("","Asset Needs added to DB")

    Re: IF Statement/Vlookup/ISNA

    Does the name better align with the rules? It's still a question about an IF Vlookup formula.

    Re: IF(Vlookup Formula with default response if N/A

    No - it's not telling us what you are trying to do. Change it to this, please: "Formula to return a custom value of "Asset Needs added to DB" if the #N/A error is returned".

    Re: IF(Vlookup Formula with default response if N/A

    When you have changed the title, you might wish to try this:

    =IFNA(IF(VLOOKUP(Data!D2,'PBU Central Master'!A:C,3,FALSE)=Data!C2,"With Same ID", "With Different ID"),"Asset Needs added to DB")

    Re: IF(Vlookup Formula with default response if N/A

    Thank you! That accomplished exactly what I was trying to do, and I did try the IFNA formula once before but did not think to have an IF formula behind it as well.

    I knew a second set of eyes would figure it out. Appreciate it!
