What is vlookup & hlookup?


1024x768 Normal 0 false false false /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} These are Excel functions for Lookup tables. The purpose of Lookup tables is to bring a value to the table, find the closest (or exact) match, and then return another value.

An example is the federal income tax table. On your tax return you get your gross income and number of dependents, go to the Lookup table, and find your taxable income.

The V in VLOOKUP means that the table is vertical; HLOOKUP has a horizontal orientation.

If you use the Insert Function button in Excel and paste either function, the dialog box will explain each required field separately with examples.

Using Vlookup to copy data from another worksheet


=if(isblank(vlookup(Sheet1!A1,Sheet2!$A$1:$B$4,2,0)),"",vlookup(Sheet1!A1,Sheet2!$A$1:$B$4,2,0))

Vlookup


Check if the first parameter entered is of the cell for which you are doing lookup.

I mean sometimes its possible if you want to do a lookup for say cell A2, by mistake you enter it as =vlookup(A3,........)

Vloop


Are you referring to the VLOOKUP function in Microsoft Excel?

I love vlookup!

Suppose you have 1 worksheet with song numbers and titles in Row 1, Cols A:B:

Song# Title
123 Love Me Tender
234 Blue Suede Shoes
345 Dixie

Another worksheet has song number and performer in Row 1, Cols A:B

Song# Performer
123 Elvis Presley
234 Carl Perkins
456 Cher

Notice there is NO performer for song number 345 in the 2nd worksheet.

Now in the 1st work sheet, cell C2 insert this LOOKUP function: =LOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 in Col C. You should get a Performer for all songs even though there is not a song number 345 in the performer worksheet.

Help me out Mr. VLOOKUP.

Insert this VLOOKUP function in cell C2 of the first worksheet: =VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B,2,0)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 Col C. You should get the performer names for the 1st 2 songs, but not for 345 Dixie. The result should be #N/A.

That means VLOOKUP could not find a DIRECT match for song 345 in the second worksheet.

That is why I prefer VLOOKUP over LOOKUP.

I have found this explaination of the VLOOKUP parameters helpful:

1. Needle (A2)
2. Haystack (Sheet2!A:B)
3. RELATIVE Col containing result (2)
4. Need DIRECT MATCH ONLY (0)

Hope this helps.

VLOOKUP is to Searches for a value in the leftmost column of a table, and then returns a value in the same row from a column you specify in the table. Use VLOOKUP instead of HLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a column to the left of the data you want to find. The V in VLOOKUP stands for "Vertical." Syntax VLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,col_index_num,range_lookup) Lookup_value is the value to be found in the first column of the array. Lookup_value can be a value, a reference, or a text string. Table_array is the table of information in which data is looked up. Use a reference to a range or a range name, such as Database or List. If range_lookup is TRUE, the values in the first column of table_array must be placed in ascending order: ..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ..., A-Z, FALSE, TRUE; otherwise VLOOKUP may not give the correct value. If range_lookup is FALSE, table_array does not need to be sorted. You can put the values in ascending order by choosing the Sort command from the Data menu and selecting Ascending. The values in the first column of table_array can be text, numbers, or logical values. Uppercase and lowercase text are equivalent. Col_index_num is the column number in table_array from which the matching value must be returned. A col_index_num of 1 returns the value in the first column in table_array; a col_index_num of 2 returns the value in the second column in table_array, and so on. If col_index_num is less than 1, VLOOKUP returns the #VALUE! error value; if col_index_num is greater than the number of columns in table_array, VLOOKUP returns the #REF! error value. Range_lookup is a logical value that specifies whether you want VLOOKUP to find an exact match or an approximate match. If TRUE or omitted, an approximate match is returned. In other words, if an exact match is not found, the next largest value that is less than lookup_value is returned. If FALSE, VLOOKUP will find an exact match. If one is not found, the error value #N/A is returned. Remarks If VLOOKUP can't find lookup_value, and range_lookup is TRUE, it uses the largest value that is less than or equal to lookup_value. If lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first column of table_array, VLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value. If VLOOKUP can't find lookup_value, and range_lookup is FALSE, VLOOKUP returns the #N/A value.
