Experts,

Is it possible to use vlookup in Excel for a comment field.  I am asking because I have spreadsheet that changes as to what is in columns "C7 through C420".

I was looking for a way to display the description of the respective code.  The descriptions are too lenthy to add another column and stll have the required data on one sheet.

The file is a format that I cannot open and I am not sure that it is safe because I cannot see it.

Please see attached three versions of Vlookups that involves comments.

the files are macro enabled becuase the vlookups are user defined functions placed in the module of excel

Professorjimjam,

Can you assist me in implementing your code in the attached spreadsheet.  I have a sample of columns with comments. The vlookup in column "F" is what I would like to see in the respective comment in column "A".
