    vlookup formula tweak needed

    Somewhat complicated vlookup exercise;
    Tab 1=list of work products to complete, 27392 rows, file name in Col A, document title in col C.

    Tab 2 = data dump of database 2, 138816 rows, file name in col H, document title in col. K

    Tab 3 = data dump of database 3, 13723 rows, document and or file name in col AS, document and or file name in col BO.

    Tab 4 cut and paste of tab 1 with vlookups ie "results"

    My sample formula is
    =vlookup(A2,tab 2!H5,2,False)

    I pulled this down all the way to row 27392.

    All results "n/a".

    Do I need 27392 formula or 138816?
    I need to check if the 27392 items in tab1 are present in the lines of tab 2, or the 13723 lines of tab 3.

    probably the below you are looking for

    =vlookup(A2,tab 2!$H$5:$h$138816,2,False)
    try this and copy towards down

    Still getting "n a" error. MS help states "enter a cell reference instead of a range reference". I had the cell reference in place earlier and got the same message.
