#### Lookup Function #5

```I have a table set up where ARC and CRA are two separate entities and have
two separate values associated with them (ie. ARC=4568, CRA=3978).  When I do
a lookup using these strings, it give the value ARC=4568, and CRA=4568.  I
assume because they contain the same letters, just in a different order.  I
think Excel sees ARC and CRA as being the same thing.  Is there a way around
this??

THanks

Chris

```Christopher,

It looks like you have the lookup function structured wrong.  Excel should
be able to find the correct value.  You might want to look at the on-line
help for the correct syntax.

```What formula did you use? If the formula is referring to a table, is the
table sorted in ascending order on its first column? Also, did you see
the replies to your initial post?

```Hi Chris,

You probably left out the last argument, 0, as in Max' example

XML Validation #5
I'm validating an XML document against an XSD schema using the code shown below. Everything works good, but I'm trying to find a way to grab the node\attribute value that threw the error.

It wants to print my 5.5"X8.5" booklets on 11"X17"
For two years, I’ve used Publisher 2003 to print folded and stapled booklets on our Konica/Minolta Di5510 copier. Ever since Service Pack 3, no matter what I do when I send a 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" booklet job to the copier, the copier insists that I load 11" X 17" instead of the 8 1/2" X 11" I specified. (When I try to print an 8 1/2" X 11" booklet, it either changes my Publisher page set up to 4 1/4" X 11" and prints slices of two of my pages on each page of the booklet, or it prints a booklet with only half the pages.)

Exchange 5.5 Registry Keys
Hello I've googled for this without much luck : I'm trying to find out the registry key that defines whether a protocol (such as POP3, IMAP etc) is enabled or not.

While we're at it, the keys to see if Public Root Folders and Public Folders are implemented would be darned useful too. Can anyone advise, please?

Help with LOOKUP function
This function is in a workbook with 2 sheets. It _almost_ works perfectly. These "C" columns in two different sheets '2005-2006'!C:C,'2004-2005'!C:C, contain names of people.

return cell reference in a table based upon given lookup criteria
Is there a way to return the cell reference, or column/row coordinates, of a cell within an array or table by providing lookup criteria? Perhaps something like this: For a table of value in A1:E10 F1: (the value to find) G1: =ADDRESS(MAX((A1:E10=F1)*ROW(A1:E10)),MAX((A1:E10=F1)*COLUMN(A1:E10))) Note: Commit that array formula by holding down the [Ctrl][Shift] keys and press [Enter]. That formula returns the address of the 1st cell containing the value in F1, or #VALUE! if there is no match. Am I on the right track here? *********** Regards, Ron XL2002, WinXP-Pro "Travis" ...

Consistent function of Utilities logon screen when applying hotfix
When our users attempt to install a hotfix roll-up, when they are logging into Dynamic Utilities for the first time, the user interface is very touchy. What I mean is that they must click the username field and then type. Then, they must use the mouse again to click the password field and type. Then, they must click the OK button. If they try to use backspace, enter key, tab key, etc., extra characters are inserted. The only way that they can "edit" their username and password information during logon is to use the mouse to highlight and the type over the information. ...
