    Lookup on Part of Lookup Array

    Hi

    Assuming 1st row is a header row

    Sheet1, Column A

    1230000_XL07 - WB OPS
    1230001_XL08 - WB OPS
    1230002_XL09 - WB OPS


    Sheet 2, Column A

    1230000

    How do I lookup 1230000 and return 1230000_XL -07 WB OPS in B2

    TIA

    Perhaps:

    Sheet2!B2:
    =VLOOKUP($A2&"*",Sheet1!$A:$A,1,0)

    EDIT:

    if A2 will always be followed by _ then you could alter slightly to make a little more watertight given use of * (wildcard), ie:

    =VLOOKUP($A2&"_*",Sheet1!$A:$A,1,0)

    Ah...the wildcard!....I got to kick myself
    I was trying Vlookup and Match but wildcard didn't come to mind

    Thanks
