In H2, you should use the following formula...
=VLOOKUP(D5,N12:O15,2,0)

Open in new window


What are you trying to return in I5 based on E5? What is your expected output in I5?

I think Rgonzo got your desired output in I5. Right?

Your existing formula of:

=VLOOKUP(D5,N12:O15,O12:O15,2)

is very close to the syntax for LOOKUP, which should be

=LOOKUP(D5,N12:O15,O12:O15)

LOOKUP works similar to VLOOKUP but uses two separate ranges rather than one contiguous range. Where VLOOKUP relies on the reference column being the leftmost of the range, likewise HLOOKUP relies on reference being the top row; with LOOKUP the separate ranges can be either way round, ie the reference range can be to the right of the return range.

In addition, with LOOKUP the reference range can be a column and the return range can be a row.

Thanks
