    When I tried to use the function I got an error stating "Ambiguous name detected: VLOOKUPWORKBOOK".

    I'm very new to macros and would appreciate any help you could provide. I'm sure you'll need more info so just ask and I will give it to you! Thank you!

    I have uploaded the workbook. I tried to use it on the tab titled "Master List" in cell D3.

    If you don't want to look in the file, I entered it like this:

    =VLOOKUPWORKBOOK(A3, 'TS-5D1'!D3:D103, 4, 0)
