Excel/IF INDEX MATCH RETURNS BLANK

Question
HI

I Have this formula

=INDEX('Notification Gateway Tool'!$C$2:$D$113,MATCH(C5,'Notification Gateway Tool'!$C$2:$C$230,),2)

This should return a blank cell if there is no match,or indicates as Not Qualified if there is no match instead it still returns a #N/A. What do I need to change?

Answer
Eric

Your formula looks okay (without me knowing what the cell references in the formula have in them).  I suggest that you check all of the referenced cells and make sure they have no value in them or that they are appropriate to the formula.  Often times if a cell has an unseen value in it (such as a space), the formula will return the N/A error message.  Check it out.

Hope this works for you.
