Dear Team,

I would like to have assistance from you related with an example related with vlookup. As shown in example.

On sheet 2 , I have values for A , B , C , D in numbers each and corresponding to alphabets in words such as Apple , Ball etc .

Now on sheet 1 , I know how to make vlookup with A and its corresponding number, if change the letter , the number too changes . This is perfect.
Now how can I add one more cell to it, so that when I change the letter , the number changes in one cell and another cell corresponding word comes too .

Appreciate your kind help and support.


Regards,

aaron

your question is not clear for me,
could modify  the sample with new request sample and make comments on cells to what values you want to see

never mind, I see
is it possible to make your order "A,1,Apple" instead of "Apple,A,1" in sheet 2
since the first column should be the index value in the range
otherwise you should have other formula columns for the above order "A,1,Apple" or "A,Apple,1" and use it as the vlookup range
