I would like to return vendor details using VLOOKUP function looking up per vendor only if service contact is available. In addition, if there is no vendor found on the reference page, text "Add vendor to Vendor List" should appear.

Tried this formula and received error message #UNPARSEABLE

=IF(CONTAINS(“Yes”, [Service Contract]@row, IFERROR(VLOOKUP(Vendor@row, {Vendor details}, 3, false), "Add vendor to Vendor List"), “”)

I would appreciate any advice.

    You also need to correct your quotes. See how some are slanted and others are straight up and down? The slanted ones are called "smart quotes" which (ironically enough) are not recognized as valid characters in a Smartsheet formula. You will need to retype them directly in the sheet itself, here in the Community, or in a text editor such as Notepad (not Word).
