Dear experts,

i'm seeking for a solution for my problem :
I've a worksheet (array) called "comp" up to 250 entries  (range A2:D250) in this form:
A         B              C               D
CMV    gal.com   dal.com    gil.com
DAL     dal.com
DEL     DEL.com  DAL.COM
FIL       FIL.COM  CEL.COM  GAL.COM
FUL     FUL.COM
MAL    MAL.COM
CFR     CFR.COM
......

In other worksheet called "PD" i've this formula below building prefix from displayname in B3  and
suffix (domain.com) depends on 3-LetterCode in B17.

for example:
B2= jones, mike
B17=CMV

smtp in B4 (!PD) should be mike.jones@mal.com
smtp in B5 (!PD) should be mike.jones@dal.com
smtp in B6 (!PD) should be mike.jones@gil.com

The formula below is working so far but only from a small range in the same worksheet.
How the formula should change for a bigger range in other worksheet called (comp)?
I've tried with (B17,comp!A2:D200,2,FALSE) but not working.

Thanks in advance!!!


=IFERROR(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(LOWER(RIGHT(B3;(LEN(B3))-(SEARCH(",";B3))-1)&"."&LEFT(B3;(SEARCH(",";B3)-1))&"@"&VLOOKUP(B17;A200:D204;2;FALSE));" ";"");"/,";"");SUBSTITUTE(B3;" ";"")&"@"&VLOOKUP(B17;A200:D204;2;FALSE))

=IFERROR(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(LOWER(RIGHT(B3;(LEN(B3))-(SEARCH(",";B3))-1)&"."&LEFT(B3;(SEARCH(",";B3)-1))&"@"&VLOOKUP(B17;A200:D204;2;FALSE));" ";"");"/,";"");SUBSTITUTE(B3;" ";"")&"@"&VLOOKUP(B17;A200:D204;2;FALSE))

If VLOOKUP( (B17,comp!A2:D200,2,FALSE) is not working, then possibly you don't have an exact match.  Look to see if there is an extra space in the cell that should be a match in comp! sheeet.

Also note that you can/should make the table range absolute ("freeze it") so that you can copy down formula without have to manually re-adjust range.

e.g.

VLOOKUP(B17,comp!$A$2:$D$200,2,FALSE)

The $ "freezes" the column/row in the formula so you can copy down/across with changing that parameter.

If you still can't get it, post a sample workbook showing the problem.
