Nested vlookup

My formula is:


The formula looks up the value in  "$W..."and returns the amount of orders. 
I alwayshave values for the first part of the lookup, but niot the second.

THe issue is that if there nothing to report back for the second lookup, it 
gives me an "#NA" errror instead of at least returning the value for the 
first lookup.

Any help?

Wrap both Lookups in their own ISNA() wrapper to trap for that error:-

Nested IF & Nested AND
I'm trying to compare two cells to create two different outcomes. The formula I'm using is as follows; =IF((AND(H15="Capitol",I15="both")),F15/2,),IF((AND(H15="Capitol",I15="MPL41")),F15,) Cell H15 does equal Capitol, Cell I15 does equal both, Cell F15 does equal $3,094.36. When I use this formula I get the correct answer of $1,547.18 =IF((AND(H15="Capitol",I15="both")),F15/2,) When I try to nest another IF as shown above I get the error #value!. By adding the IF((AND(H15="Capitol",I15="MPL41")),F15,) I...

Nested Groups
We have nested groups (specialty areas) inside of a main discipline group. All groups are set to expand on the local server. We are experiencing issues with using this main group to assign permissions on Public Folders and to set it as allowed sender for message restrictions for other distribution groups.

Vlookup in Excel 2003
when I enter a vlookup formula into a cell...I hit enter and the actual formula stays in the cell...SHOWING. It doesn't give an error message but just displays the actual formula with no action...Help, please! Perhaps the cell was formatted as Text. Format to General then F2 and Enter to re-enter the formula. Or you are in Formula View and see all formulas as a string. Hit CTRL + `(backquote above Tab key) to toggle formula view on/off.

I have read several posts regarding nesting, but I haven't quite found what has perplexed me for the last couple of hours. I'm using a set of IF functions to check 12 different cells to see if they match a particular cell. If it does, it returns a value of a different cell, if false it returns zero. These are contained within a SUM function. Now, here is the perplexing part. They aren't "nested" per se, because they are all on the same level. I can get it to work by checking up to 11 of the cells, but on the 12th, it breaks. Here is the formula with only the 11 entries...

Nested IF and VLOOKUP functions
I'm using the VLOOKUP function to return an exact value or #N/A, if no value is found.

I use the Vlookup a lot and sometimes in some very large spreadsheets. As you can imagine I spend a lot of time counting columns to find the column index number. Is there a formula I can use that will do that counting for me? For example if my lookup value is in column A and my return value is in column C the answer for this formula should be 3.

nested ifs
Hi all, I am unfamiliar with nested IF statements. I want to have a formula evaluate the following: b1=.005, b2 could =-.004 or b2 could =.004 If b1 is > than 0, then I want to add 1 to b1 and multiply it by 1+b2 if b2 is > 0, or by 1 less the absolute value of b2 if b2 is < 0. so: 1.005*1.004....which is (b1+1)*(b2+1) or 1.005*.996....which is (b1+1)*(1-|b2|).
