In general if you do a comparison between two values like A1=B1 then that isn't case-sensitive so you need to use EXACT function for that, i.e.

=EXACT(A1,B1)

so using EXACT your formula in AN136 would become

=IFERROR(IF($AL136="","",LOOKUP(2,1/(EXACT($AL136&"",LEFT(Temp!$M$18:$M$31,4))*EXACT($AM136&"",LEFT(TRIM(REPLACE(Temp!$M$18:$M$31,1,FIND("-",Temp!$M$18:$M$31),"")),4))),Temp!P$18:P$31)),1)

regards, barry
