    OK. I think the pics are now visible in the first post. If anyone can't see them, then please let me know and I will investigate it further.

    Thanks.

    You can also add VLOOKUP function using range within a function:

    Hi Zbor,

    Could you explain this a bit because I'm not sure I understand the formula you posted? Also it's giving me an error (in error):

    There could be regional setting problem. In above I just replace ; with , but maybe you need to adopt something more.
    Here is original formula:

    @ abousetta

    Another problem that occurs with VLOOKUP is with numbers - the sought value might be a number but the lookup values in the table might be text values, or viceversa. This can be overcome quite easily like this:

    =VLOOKUP(D1*1,table,2,0)

    or

    =VLOOKUP(D1&"",table,2,0)

    and these can be combined into one formula to make it more universal. Perhaps you might like to cover that in your tips.

    Another problem you might like to deal with is where you have multiple names, e.g. if you had John Lee as the 4th item in your table in Tip #2.

    Hope this helps.

    Pete

    Unfortunately your post does not comply with Rule 2 of our Forum RULES. Do not post a question in the thread of another member -- start your own thread.

    If you feel an existing thread is particularly relevant to your need, provide a link to the other thread in your new thread.

    Old threads are often only monitored by the original participants. New threads not only open you up to all possible participants again, they typically get faster response, too.
