I have a spreadsheet where I track expenses.

Over time mileage rates, etc. change

I could manually enter an updated rate after each change, but I'd like to do it with a lookup process

Attached is a copy of the spreadsheet - The value I want as the lookup result is on the Expense Tracking Tab - "Rate" and the table I want to use as the source is the mileage lookup tab

Does anybody know of an existing formula / calc that does type of lookup?

Thanks

With a slight modification:

=IF(D2="Mileage",VLOOKUP(B2,'Mileage Rate Lookup'!$B:$D,3,TRUE),0)

This works great and allows for addition of newer mileage rates without any update.

Thanks
