Excel IFNA function

Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2019-06-19

In Excel, the IFNA function returns a custom result when a formula generates the #N/A error, if no error is detected, the normal result will be returned.

The syntax for the IFERROR function in Excel is:

= IFNA(value, value_if_na)


  • value: Required. The value, reference, or formula that is checked for an error.
  • value_if_na: Required. The value returned if the formula is #N/A error value.


  • 1. If value is empty, it is evaluated as an empty string ("").
  • 2. If value_if_na is supplied as an empty string (""), a blank cell is displayed when an error is detected.


Returns the specific value for the #N/A errors.


In this example, we will use the IFNA function with a VLOOKUP function. If the lookup data is not found from the table, an error of #N/A is displayed, to fix the error value, you can combine the IFNA function.

Now, if you want to find the corresponding Order based on the Product, the normal Vlookup formulas can help you: =VLOOKUP(D2,$A$2:$B$8,2,FALSE), if the value not found from the vlookup table, an error value is returned.

To fix this #N/A error value, you can combine the IFNA function with the Vlookup formula as this:

=IFNA(VLOOKUP(D2,$A$2:$B$8,2,FALSE),"Not Found")
