    VLOOKUP or ISNUMBER on data seperated by commas

    I have a data range (exported monthly via CSV) of sales & purchase invoices plus the account reference each of them have been raised against.
    I then have a list of current month invoices (including both sales & purchase) for which I would like to return the account reference for each.
    I can't do a straightforward VLOOKUP because some of the invoice numbers are grouped together in one cell, separated by commas.

    Is this solution possible?
    Example attached.
    ANY help at all would be appreciated - I'm so stuck

    Thank you,
    Laura

    Re: Wildcard VLOOKUP

    I've titled this Wildcard VLOOKUP but I don't actually think that's what I need.
    Great start!!!

    Perhaps,

    In G3, copied down :

    =IFERROR(LOOKUP(1,-FIND(F3&",",A$3:A$9&","),C$3:C$9),"not found")

    Regards
