Hello Experts,

I am trying to test VLOOKUP so I can get the hang of it, but as you can see it's returning an #N/A.

You can see how I am using the function at top.  Any help would be very much appreciated.

In fact this will not work. Vlookup has to have the value to be looked up in the first column of the range. You can try something like this instead.

=index($f$733855:$f$733860,match(d733855,$g$733855:$G$733860,0),1)
0
