    How do I adding a condition to an IF and Vlookup forumula

    Title: How do I add a condition to an IF and Vlookup Formula:

    I need to edit a formula to include a condition. I attached an excel file for ease of explaining the problem. I want to say if $E$5 has A to B then F5 will automatically have BOR, but if E5 has anything else then the Vlookup formula applies.
    I was thinking something along this formula:
    =IF(AND($E$5<>A to B,ISBLANK($B5),"",VLOOKUP($B5,'Drop Down'!$D$1:$E$500,2,FALSE)))
    I know I need to add BOR in the formula above somewhere
    Where am I going wrong?

    Thanks

    Try:

    =IF($E5="A to B","BOR",IF(ISBLANK($B5),"",VLOOKUP($B5,'Drop Down'!$D$1:$E$500,2,FALSE)))
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
