Hello experts,

could someone provide me with a formula that will do a vlookup with a MID formula but where there are sometimes spaces.


MD9 Look this up ME1 with no spaces

so my VLOOKUP would be something like:


to return the number 123456

but where the cell has a space in this one: 'ME1 2'

MD9 Look this up ME1 2 with a space

It returns an error.

Thanks in advance
