Vlookup is vertical lookup. It looks up a cell value from a table or database in excel. Try this: http://faculty.ucc.edu/business-greenbaum/C100SS_HVLOOKUP.htm

It is a function in excel that will look up to a value or data located in different sheet or in different cells. It is very helpful function to look for a bunch of data and compair and extract the exact information. syntax: =vlookup(lookup_value,table_array, col_index_num,[range_lookup])

EXCEL VLOOK Function


Just noticed a small syntax problem, try this:
VLOOKUP(S9,$S$14:$T$18,2,0)

I always add the last parameter of "0" to insure that that an exact match is found.

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,........)

M.S. Excel , vlookup formulla tell me use


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.
