=VLOOKUP(AD15,CUID!$A$1:$A$45,2,FALSE)

AD15=4306889

CUID tab is just two columns.  The value 4306889 is in A6.  In B6 the text is 'Ace Hardware'.  My formula above is returning   #REF!

Any ideas?  I just want to find the value in AD column in column A of CUID tab and return the text value in corresponding row in Column B on CUID tab.....
