    table_array:VLOOKUP help

    Hi,

    I have a vlookup where the table_array is the variable part..How do i do it?

    For example.

    VLOOKUP(B1, XXX, 3,FALSE)

    So in the formula XXX is the variable part..but i am not able to do it..Can anyone help in this regard...Basically, XXX is either Table1 or Table2 or Table3 etc..but i am not able to figure this out..

    Please help.

    To best describe or illustrate your problem you would be better off attaching a dummy workbook, the workbook should contain the same structure and some dummy data of the same type as the type you have in your real workbook - so, if a cell contains numbers & letters in this format abc-123 then that should be reflected in the dummy workbook.

    If needed supply a before and after sheet in the workbook so the person helping you can see what you are trying to achieve.

    Doing this will ensure you get the result you need!
    Hope that helps.

    Satish,

    If I understand your question right you could use Indirect.

    =VLOOKUP(B1,INDIRECT(B2),3,FALSE)

    B2 would contain Table1 or Table2 or Table3 etc
