    Need Help figuring out - vLOOKUP to Extract Data Based on a Value in a Cell

    The situation I'm trying to solve for is very similar to #2 in this link: https://www.exceldemy.com/vlookup-if...text-in-excel/

    Which is solved with this formula: =VLOOKUP(VALUE(LEFT(B13,3)),D4:E10,2,FALSE)

    The only difference is that I will be using text (not numbers) and I don't want the lookup to be restricted to a certain # of characters (3 in the above example).

    The value I want to lookup with will be the leftmost piece of the text string.

    Any ideas?

    There are instructions at the top of the page explaining how to attach your sample workbook.

    A good sample workbook has just 10-20 rows of representative data that has been desensitised. It also has expected results mocked up, relevant cells highlighted and a few explanatory notes.
