    vlookup issue

    I have a formula and it seems to have some issues

    the formula i have is
    Formula: copy to clipboard
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.


    for my first person it works fine
    For my second person it returns the wrong result
    form my third person it returns the correct result

    I have included a screen shot

    I actually want to return the data that is on column Q in the products tab but changed it to A to see which result it finds.

    could I achieve the same result in another way, I want to keep it as simple as possible as I wont be working with the data.

    You need an exact match, not an approximate one:

    =VLOOKUP(C6,Products!$A$1:$Q$93,1,0)
