IFNA function [MS]

The IFNA function returns the value you specify if a formula returns the #N/A error value; otherwise it returns the result of the formula.


IFNA(value, value_if_na)

The IFNA function syntax has the following arguments.





The argument that is checked for the #N/A error value.



The value to return if the formula evaluates to the #N/A error value.


  • If value or value_if_na is an empty cell, IFNA treats it as an empty string value ("").

  • If value is an array formula, IFNA returns an array of results for each cell in the range specified in value.


In the following example, IFNA tests the result of the VLOOKUP function. Because Seattle is not found in the lookup range, VLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value. IFNA returns the string "Not found" in the cell instead of the standard #N/A error value.
