    iS MY vlookup WITH TRIM Function correct?

    Hello all,

    Can someone kindly verify my vlookup and trim is functionaing correctly?

    I`m just a bit sceptical. I have put the formula in column M, I am looking to see if data from column L exists in columN k. cOLUMN k has an apostrophe in front, so I have used a trim function.

    TRIM removes spaces, nothing else. No problem there
    In your example you use the same value to lookup as in the lookup table, so it always returns a value whatever that may be.

    Try

    =vlookup(right(k16,13),$l$16:$l$5617,1,false)
