# IFNA

Formulas / IFNA
Trap #N/A errors.
`IFNA(value, value_if_na)`
• value - required argument to check for the #N/A error value
• value_if_na - required argument to return if the formula evaluates to an error value

## Examples

• `IFNA(VLOOKUP(E5,xtable,2,0),"Not found")`

The IFNA function can be used to trap errors when using other Sourcetable functions. This example will trap any #N/A errors returned by the VLOOKUP function and return "Not found" if the lookup value is not found in xtable.

• `IFNA(A2,"No Data Entered")`

The IFNA function can also be used to fill empty cells with a value, and will return "No Data Entered" if the cell A2 is empty or contains an error.

• `IFNA(SUMIFS(A2:A10,B2:B10,">0"),"No Positive Values")`

The IFNA function can also be used to combine multiple functions. For example, this formula will return "No Positive Values" if the SUMIFS function returns an error due to no values being greater than 0.

• `IFNA(INDEX(A2:A10,MATCH(B1,A2:A10,0),1),"No Match")`

The IFNA function can also be used to combine multiple functions and arguments, and will return "No Match" if the INDEX and MATCH functions return an error due to B1 not matching any value in A2:A10.

## Summary

The IFNA function is a logical worksheet function in Sourcetable which was introduced in 2013. It helps to trap errors and provides an alternative value if a formula throws an #N/A error.

• The IFNA function traps #N/A errors and returns a custom result when a formula throws an error.

What is the IFNA function?
The IFNA function is a built-in function in Sourcetable that takes two arguments and returns the specified value if a formula returns an error value.
What are the two arguments?
The two arguments are the value to check for the #N/A error value and the value to return if the formula returns the #N/A error value.
Are the two arguments required?
Yes, the two arguments are required.
What does the IFNA function do?
The IFNA function returns the specified value if a formula returns an error value. If a formula does not return an error value, the IFNA function returns the formula's result.
