    Vlookup and partial data match problem

    I have the following in worksheet 1

    Cell B2
    30543

    Whereas in worksheet 2, I have the following

    Cell A2
    S51410

    Cell B2
    11-DEOXYCORTISOL, LC/MS/MS, SERUM [30543X]

    I'd like to do the following:
    Condition: Exclude any 'X' at the end of cell B2 from the 2nd sheet and if the value (i.e.30543) is similar to Cell B2 from the 1st Sheet.

    then result: Display value of Cell A2 from the 2nd worksheet (S51410) in Cell E2 of the 1st Sheet

    I am about to bang my head on the wall with this. Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks

    It is possible with LOOKUP.

    Try this;

    =LOOKUP(9E300,SEARCH(B2,Sheet2!B$2:B$50),Sheet2!A$2:A$50)

    Adjust the ranges.
