I have a worksheet where I have a drop down list and I am trying to auto fill the column to the right. I attached the Excel file. I am having some issue getting the value to populate properly. Could someone please take a look at this and tell me what I am doing wrong?

The field I am testing this on is D27 on the Worksheet tab.

"=IF(ISBLANK(C27),0,VLOOKUP(C27,list,2))"

I keep getting #NAME? but it is suppose to be pulling in the RATE (20) from the tab sheet2.

Thanks!

You don't have a range named List, so you actually want:
=IF(ISBLANK(C27),0,VLOOKUP(C27,List!A:B,2,FALSE))
