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
Your right hlookup is very simular to vlookup, the key difference is it searches along the top row of the table, finds the matching data and gives you one of the below cells (depending on how you write the formula), just think of a vlookup on it's side.
The formula works like this: =HLOOKUP(lookup value, table, row_index_number, range_lookup)
lookup value = is the value you want to match against the table i.e. ABBA
table = the range of cells that make up the table you want to search i.e. A1:D300
row_index_number = the number of rows from the top of the table you want to get the value from, 1 is the top of the table, 2 is directly below
range_lookup = if you want an exact match type FALSE, if you want the nearest match type TRUE
