  • what is the reason of summing 1 cell? – wilson Oct 8 '10 at 3:36

This is the simplified version of the formula you provided in the question:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(C24,'Ability Base'!A$2:B$50,2,FALSE)),
    "Not Ability",
    VLOOKUP(C24,'Ability Base'!A$2:B$50,2,FALSE)
)

Maybe you can tell your requirement in words if the above is not suitable.
