You would have to combine the use of 2 functions. The Address and Match funbctions.
Lets say the number you want the address of is located in cell F1 and you have 2 columns of numbers. One colum in Column A and the other in column B. I will give you 2 formulas. The 1st one will return just the row number. The 2nd one will return the cell address.

Option 1: Lets say you just want to know the row reference of the number in cell F1. Place this formula in cell D1. =MATCH(F1,A1:A20)
If you have another column ytou want the row number of, place the formula in lets say cell D2 and change the column references from 'A' to 'B'.

Option 2: If you want the cell reference, place this formula in cell D1 and D2 instead of the firt formula.
And just like the first option, for the 2nd column, put the formula in D2 and change the column reference 'A' to 'B'.

### IS THERE A FORMULA IN EXCEL THAT WILL HIGHLIGHT CELLS THAT MATCH A NUMERICAL INVENTORY LIST?

One way would be to create a colunn C and use the formula: =COUNTIF(B\$2:B\$200,A2) in cell C2. Then copy the formula down to C200. (assuming you have 200 entries in B...). This will put a "1" next to every number in Column A that has a match in column B. Then you could put a conditional formula in column A that will highlight the cell if the value in column C is equal to 1. Alternatively you could also simply filter for 1's in column C and then manually highlight the cells that show up in A!

### My MS Excel vlookup function ASCII type table contains both upper case and lower case letters, characters like ( and % or *, and numbers. It seems to return the numerical equivalent of upper case letters...

Correct a #N/A error Show All Hide All This error occurs when a value is not available to a function or formula.
1. Optionally, click the cell that displays the error, click the button that appears , and then click Show Calculation Steps if it appears.
2. Review the following possible causes and solutions. Missing data, and #N/A or NA() has been entered in its place
Replace #N/A with new data.
Note You can enter #N/A in those cells where data is not yet available. Formulas that refer to those cells will then return #N/A instead of attempting to calculate a value.
Giving an inappropriate value for the lookup_value argument in the HLOOKUP, LOOKUP, MATCH, or VLOOKUP worksheet function
Make sure that the lookup_value argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) is the correct type of value — for example, a value or a cell reference, but not a range reference. Using the VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, or MATCH worksheet function to locate a value in an unsorted table
By default, functions that look up information in tables must be sorted in ascending order. However, the VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP worksheet functions contain a range_lookup argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) that instructs the function to find an exact match even if the table is not sorted. To find an exact match, set the range_lookup argument to FALSE. The MATCH worksheet function contains a match_type argument that specifies the order the list must be sorted in to find a match. If the function cannot find a match, try changing the match_type argument. To find an exact match, set the match_type argument to 0.
Using an argument in an array formula that is not the same number of rows or columns as the range that contains the array formula
If the array formula (array formula: A formula that performs multiple calculations on one or more sets of values, and then returns either a single result or multiple results. Array formulas are enclosed between braces { } and are entered by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.) has been entered into multiple cells, make sure that the ranges referenced by the formula have the same number of rows and columns, or enter the array formula into fewer cells. For example, if the array formula has been entered into a range 15 rows high (C1:C15) and the formula refers to a range 10 rows high (A1:A10), the range C11:C15 will display #N/A. To correct this error, enter the formula into a smaller range (for example, C1:C10), or change the range to which the formula refers to the same number of rows (for example, A1:A15).
Omitting one or more required arguments from a built-in or custom worksheet function
Enter all arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function.
Using a custom worksheet function that is not available
Make sure that the workbook that contains the worksheet function is open and the function is working properly.
Running a macro that enters a function that returns #N/A
Make sure that the arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function are correct and in the correct position.

### Plz tell me Sir/Madam. what is Hlookup And give me example

This is Horizontal lookup , used to look up value in a 2 dimensional table .It searches for a value in the top row of a table or an array of values, and then returns a value in the same column from a row you specify in the table or array. Use HLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a row across the top of a table of data, and you want to look down a specified number of rows. The H in HLOOKUP stands for "Horizontal."

Formulae Syntax

HLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,row_index_num,range_lookup)

Lookup_value is the value to be found in the first row of the table. Lookup_value can be a value, a reference, or a text string.

Table_array is a table of information in which data is looked up. Use a reference to a range or a range name.

• The values in the first row of table_array can be text, numbers, or logical values.

• If range_lookup is TRUE, the values in the first row of table_array must be placed in ascending order: ...-2, -1, 0, 1, 2,... , A-Z, FALSE, TRUE; otherwise, HLOOKUP may not give the correct value. If range_lookup is FALSE, table_array does not need to be sorted.

• Uppercase and lowercase text are equivalent.

• You can put values in ascending order, left to right, by selecting the values and then clicking Sort on the Data menu. Click Options, click Sort left to right, and then click OK. Under Sort by, click the row in the list, and then click Ascending.

Row_index_num is the row number in table_array from which the matching value will be returned. A row_index_num of 1 returns the first row value in table_array, a row_index_num of 2 returns the second row value in table_array, and so on. If row_index_num is less than 1, HLOOKUP returns the #VALUE! error value; if row_index_num is greater than the number of rows on table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #REF! error value.

Range_lookup is a logical value that specifies whether you want HLOOKUP 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, HLOOKUP will find an exact match. If one is not found, the error value #N/A is returned.

Remarks

• If HLOOKUP can't find lookup_value, and range_lookup is TRUE, it uses the largest value that is less than lookup_value.
• If lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first row of table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value.

Example
The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

### I have a lock on my apple ipod. It's on the welcome screen.It need 4 numbers.Can i get a solve for this immediately.Model-a1136 serial num- 9c7169jvv9k emc 2065

Your iPod is "locked". Enter the correct 4 digits, to unlock it.

Keep trying -- from 0-0-0-0 to 9-9-9-9 is only ten thousand different combinations. Statistically-speaking, you'll only need to make FIVE thousand attempts, on the average, to find the correct value.

### Gateway MX6124 laptop: some keys on the right side of the keyboard display numbers instead of letters. Keys involved and actual display are: Row Starting with q: u=4, i=5, o=6, p=*, Row Starting with a:...

Your computer is in keypad mode. To check, turn off your Num Lock. On my system that disables the embedded keypad. To fix, go into setup (usually F1, F2 or delete when booting). Somewhere you should find a setting for using the embedded keypad. Mine has two options, Fn Key Only and By Num Lock. Yours may be different. One activates the embedded keypad, which you are seeing. Try the other setting.

### Hello i want to use h LOOK UP

Hi !!

How to implement Hlookup function:
• Select your data and sort it in ascending order
• Then type '=HLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,row_index_num,range_lookup)'.
Lookup_value is the value to be found in the first row of the table. Lookup_value can be a value, a reference, or a text string. Table_array is a table of information in which data is looked up. Use a reference to a range or a range name. The values in the first row of table_array can be text, numbers, or logical values. If range_lookup is TRUE, the values in the first row of table_array must be placed in ascending order: ...-2, -1, 0, 1, 2,... , A-Z, FALSE, TRUE; otherwise, HLOOKUP may not give the correct value.
If range_lookup is FALSE, table_array does not need to be sorted. Uppercase and lowercase text are equivalent. You can put values in ascending order, left to right, by selecting the values and then clicking Sort on the Data menu. Click Options in the sort dialog box, click Sort left to right, and then click OK. Under Sort by, click the row in the list, and then click Ascending.
Row_index_num is the row number in table_array from which the matching value will be returned. A row_index_num of 1 returns the first row value in table_array, a row_index_num of 2 returns the second row value in table_array, and so on. If row_index_num is less than 1, HLOOKUP returns the #VALUE! error value; if row_index_num is greater than the number of rows on table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #REF! error value.
Range_lookup is a logical value that specifies whether you want HLOOKUP 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, HLOOKUP will find an exact match. If one is not found, the error value #N/A is returned.
• If HLOOKUP can't find lookup_value, and range_lookup is TRUE, it uses the largest value that is less than lookup_value.
• If lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first row of table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value.
• If range_lookup is FALSE and lookup_value is text, you can use the wildcard characters, question mark (?) and asterisk (*), in lookup_value. A question mark matches any single character; an asterisk matches any sequence of characters. If you want to find an actual question mark or asterisk, type a tilde (~) before the character.
• In the example in the Excel training video the sorted data represents the density of water at different temperatures. The left most column gives the temperature in degrees and the top column specifies the 'decimal' degrees
• We looked up the density of water at 5.4 degrees celsius using the Hlookupfunction.

Still have problems, Check this video on the you tube.

Hope this would help,

Thanks,
