    Vlookup in another sheet which involves an mathematical calculation and IF function

    Hello ,

    I am trying to figure out a formula that can lookup a number in Sheet 2, do an mathematical calculation and return me a 'Yes' or 'No' based on the answer of the calculation.

    The attached sheet clarifies it further.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    If your data in Sheet 2 column B was in order you could use VLOOKUP.
    It's not so we have to use this instead

    in Sheet 1!D2
    =IF((INDEX('Sheet 2'!E$2:E$5,(MATCH(A2,'Sheet 2'!B$2:B$5,0)),1)-2)/INDEX('Sheet 2'!D$2:D$5,(MATCH(A2,'Sheet 2'!B$2:B$5,0)),1)<3,"Yes","No")

    and copy down

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.
