If I have columns that I am trying to pull data from using a VB lookup from multiple named ranges, the contain the same literal except for the state, is there a way to do this without changing the original input.

Example :
Range NY                                                                                        Range NJ
ColumnA                                       Columnb                              ColumnA                  ColumnB
NY membership                           25                                           NJ Membership          50

I would like  to use the same vblookup to populate the following column if possible  The column I am trying to match on in the vblookup
does not have the State.  Is this possible?

 Membership        =vlookup(A1,NY,1,0)
