SOURCE: about function

Dear sourabh, lookup function is used, when you're trying to use some calculation using a small parameter, vlookup = vertical lookup, so when you're using a vertical parameter you must use vlookup and hlookup for using horizontal parameter,so you act as if you had a small database which is used to help your formula.

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.

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])

The VLOOKUP function is a handy one to know when you want Excel to
lookup a value in one place and insert it in another. For example,
let’s say you have a list of all of your customers on a sheet named
“Accounts” and an invoice on another sheet named “Invoice”. When you
type in their account number on the Invoice, you want Excel to fill in
the name of the customer and their address (and this information is
included for all customers on the Accounts sheet). A VLOOKUP will do
this for you.

Here's a tutorial that will help:

An implementation of the vlookup in Excel could be:

You have an Excel table with student names and their grades.

You wish that you could somewhere in the sheet type a student name, and immediately retrieve his grade (based on the data in the table).

To achieve this, you can use "Vlookup": the function will look for the student’s name in the first column in the table, and will retrieve the information that is next to his name in the second column (which is his grade).

Hlookup is the same excpet it is for data arranged by rows instead of columns.

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.

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.

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.
