Hello,

I am using a Vlookup to return values within a sheet using cell A2 as my reference some of the data that I am returning via the lookup are dates this is ok when there is a date value in the cell that I am returning but when the returning cell is blank it is returning a default date of 00/01/1900 how can I get to show a blank instead of 00/01/1900

Thank you
I think you need to use combination of iF and VLOOKUP,
like
=IF(vlookup(..)="","",Vlookup(..))

other way might be use a custom formula
