The Vlookup function is not working as I thought it would.
Refer to this code (mod_GQ_Get_GQnumber1)...

Sub Get_GQnumber2()
    Dim rng As Range, cell As Range
    Dim lc As Integer
    Dim s As String, sInput As String
    lc = Cells(3, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    Set rng = Range(Cells(3, 1), Cells(3, lc))
    For Each cell In rng
        If cell.Value Like "GQ-*" Then
            MsgBox cell.Value
            s = Left(cell.Value, InStr(1, cell.Value & " ", " ") - 1)
            MsgBox "s: " & s

            On Error Resume Next
'            v = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(s, LkupRng, 5, 0)
            v = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(s, "Data", 5, 2)
            Sheets("DRA Summary").Range("F2") = v

        End If
End Sub

This is what happens...
Refering to the line...
v = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(s, "Data", 5, 2)
the variable "s" contains the value "GQ-000" as I would expect but the variable "v" winds up being "Empty" when excuted

What I am trying to do...
I want to take the value that is in the "Data" sheet, Row 2, Column E, which is the word "Yes" and move that value to the "DRA Summary" sheet Column "F" Row "2".

Can anyone tellme what I am doing worng here?

Thanks in Advance.

I am attaching the Workbook Data.xlsm which contains everything I am refering to.
