    Vlookup Issue

    I have the following table error

    Qty Type Code List Price Sub Total Line Total
    1 8 tier Special #N/A #N/A #N/A #N/A

    It should read

    1 8 tier Special A101001 20.00 40.00 32.00

    Under type my formula is =IF(B15="","",VLOOKUP(B15,picklist,2) )

    My data table looks like

    Type Code RRP

    8 tier super A011001 262.65
    8 tier super 24hr A071019 304.25
    8 tier super 48hr A021002 335.00

    How come I am getting the #NA

    Since your data is probably not in ascending order, you should add the False identifier at the end of the Vlookup in order to search exact matches....

    =IF(B15="","",VLOOKUP(B15,picklist,2,False))
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    Then you probably don't have an exact match...

    Make sure the Type column in your picklist table doesn't have any extra spaces in the field (beginning, between words, end).

    If still having issues, attach sample workbook.

    It is at no detriment to you and I appreciate your assistance here, but I would like to stress that I am entitled to post wherever and whenever I like. I like to keep my options open especially if I can get a different perspective against my question.

    Cheers
