Hello

Can someone tell me why in the attached document sheet 2 cell F5 is not returning the value of 1 (relating to sheet 1 cell c8) when using the vlookup function?

Thanks
Rob

Your lookup table range in the formula was column A only, should be minimum A:C  since you want the 3rd column data

=VLOOKUP(C5,Sheet1!A:C,3,FALSE)
0
