    Partial text vlookup

    I am looking for a macro to partial text match vlookup between two sheets.

    Sheet1 - Monthly Report
    Column A
    Vijay
    David
    United States

    Sheet 2 - Master
    Column A
    Vijayanand
    Davidson
    United States

    I need a vlookup that will find any partial text in Monthly report matches in the master report. For eg. Vijay in monthly report is partially matched with Vijayanand in Master report.

    Regards,
    Vijay

    Try

    =INDEX(Master!A:A,MATCH('Monthly Report'!A2&"*",Master!A:A,0))

    Re: Partial text vlookup

    can you outline where the results are being listed - it's not clear - and the order in terms of criteria and lookup_array is of importance re: solution.

    If matching Monthly to Master as per Bob's post then see his example - going the other way around the approach would be different.
