V lookup Errors!?


Can any one explain why my vlookup in cell B28421 insn't returning the correct value (PVR Direct Limited).

Instead it is just displaying the formula. When I hit enter I am not getting the desired result?

One simple option that may be worth checking, what is the format of the cell containing the formula?

If it is text, the formula will show as text and not calculate. Change to General and then re-enter the formula; or Press F2 go to beginning of formula and delete the apostrophe if it is there, press enter.
