Getting a value from an array?

I have a value stored in a name called CH_FinGrp, in this case it is: X1, however X1 will refer to a value in a table on a sheet named: FinGrpFinUsedTable
How do I look down column A of the FinGrpFinUsedTable sheet to find the CH_FinGrp value, then grab the value in the cell to the right (offset one column right)
Then give that a name to use, like ActualFinishToUse = the result found?

So in my example, if X1 is the value of CH_FinGrp, it should return TR_E and assign that the name ActualFinishToUse

Hi,

pls try

CH_FinGrp = "X1"
ActualFinishToUse = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(CH_FinGrp, Range("A1:C18"), 2, 0)

Can this be made more dynamic?  Perhaps if I name the range ("A1::C18") to "FinGrpTable"  How would this change the way this looks?

If you're expecting the size of the table - currently in A1:C18 - to change, then I recommend you define it as a Table in Excel (Menu: Insert, Table...accept defaults).  The range will be named "Table1" by default; you can change that name in the Name Manager (Menu: Formulas, Name Manager).  Just highlight Table1, click Edit, then change the name (ex., FinGrpTable).

Then, in the VBA code you can replace any occurence of
A1:C18
with the new table name (ex., "FinGrpTable").

An Excel Table is very dynamic and the range will expand as needed when/if new rows are added.
