The VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP functions contain an argument called range_lookup that allows you to find an exact match to your lookup value without sorting the lookup table

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])

I certainly can't take the time to explain v lookup to you in this forum, but I can direct you to several sites that you can familiarize yourself with it. It's going to take you time to to understand it.

You probably need to organise your pricelist sheet so that you only have 2 columns, product and price. If this doesn't fix you, please provide the syntax of your vlookup code.

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.

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,........)

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.
