In this article, you’ll learn how to check if matching numbers exist in different ranges in Microsoft Excel.
When we want to pick the values from first data to second data, we use Vlookup function. But, when Vlookup function does not get the common values in second data, Vlookup gives #N/A error. To avoid the #N/A error, we can use IFNA function.
Let’s take an example and understand how we can use these formulas to get the result.
We have 2 data sets. 1st is main data and 2nd is updated data. Now, we want to update the main data from the updated data.
In the main data, we want to update the manufacturer details from the updated sheet.
Follow below given steps:-
In this way, we can ignore #N/A error by using IFNA function in Microsoft Excel. Also, this function is compatible with 2007 and later versions of Microsoft Excel.
If you are using 2003 Microsoft Excel, then you can use below given function:-
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A4,$H$4:$M$19,6,FALSE)),”Not Found”, VLOOKUP(A4,$H$4:$M$19,2,FALSE))
