I have a cell which returns a value from elsewhere (its a vlookup formula)
with an iserror function attached so that if there is no result the cell
appears blank (but its not as it contains the formula).  next to the cell I
have a cell with conditional formatting which changes bases on whether the
cell is "blank" or not but i can't use "isblank" as the cell contains the
formula.  How do I get around this?  The cell result can be a mixture of
alpha and numeric characters and can be totally unique so i can't base the
conditional formatting on the cell value.
