I am using the vlookup function to look up data over
several columns. If there is nothing in one column, I
would like for it to return a blank cell instead of the 0
it returns now. Is there something else I can put in the
formula to do this. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
Best thing to do would be to post the formula that you're using.
You could test to see if the vlookup returns a zero and change it
to a blank or you may just want to set your page up to not display
Tools/Options/View & uncheck "Zero Values"

I'm having some trouble with VLOOKUP in Excel 2000 and after extensive

We have an Access 2000 database, some data from which I am exporting into an

adding a column of VLOOKUP(refno, namedtable, 2, FALSE) to link in a column
of information from the database to relevant lines in the report.

If I put 33 in place of hdr qne run the macro, the lookup runs fine?
Any help is appreciated
The variable "hdr" is named within VBA but you are posting a formula to a
cell. The formula in some cell reads
but "hdr" is not a named cell or definition within Excel only within VBA

When using Vlookup i get #NA returned in cells that have a number with a 0 in front. ie: 04011 returns #NA. I then try and type the number 04011 in the cell and find the 0 vanishes but the correct Vlookup result is returned. <br>
I need the 0 to remain in the lookup value cell as it should be 04011, how do i get the 0 to remain when typed? <br>

Why can't vlookup use calculated references?

No, a formula can only return a value.
If the format applied to the table was conditionally formatted, then
you could apply the same conditions to the cell with the formula.
Hope this helps.
