    (Urgent help) Replacing Product codes with Product name

    Hi,
    I am using excel for my business. It contains lots of invoice sheets. What I want to do is when I write a product code in the description column, it would automatically change it to full product name. I have been looking around in the internet a lot. But I could not find the solution. Please Help me.

    You can use Vlookup formula for this. https://exceljet.net/excel-functions...ookup-function check this link for better understanding about Vlookup.

    If still you have trouble then share your spreadsheet with desired result.

    For uploading the workbook you can go to advance and the click on attachment link ( see the signature and uploading workbook tips)

    Re: (Urgent help) Replacing Product codes with Product name

    Assuming you have a table somewhere which lists the product code in one column and the description in the next column, then you could use a VLOOKUP formula to get the description from the product code. However, this formula cannot be in the same cell as the one in which you enter the code, as your input would over-write the formula. So, assuming that your table of codes is in columns X and that you input the code into cell A2, then you could have this formula in B2:

    =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,X:Y,2,0),"")

    to return the description.

    Hope this helps.

    Pete
