#NA Problem using VLOOKUP
Im currently having an issue using VLOOKUP in that Im trying to get a
football league table to sort automatically.
My problem is that when two teams have the same points value the table
will only display the first team it recognizes will that point value
and display any other teams with that value as #N/A
Can anyone please advise on how to rectify this problem.
(I am new to using formulas etc so please be gentle with me)
Thanks in advance for any assistance

I have a workbook that I've just added data validation to one cell. FWIW,
the data validation is based on a named range. Here's the (perceived)
problem. When I've set up data validation in the past, the selection is the
same width as the cell. In this case, the list starts almost a full cell
width to the left. What am I missing?
In Excel2003 I can replicate what you describe under the following conditions:
1. the named range contains entries that are wider than the data validation
2. The data validation cell is r...Validating against a DTD

First of all, when i try to add my DTD file in XmlSchemaCollection

I am using NITF DTD for this and there is no DocType element in it.

I want to set data validation on a cell so that it will accept the following
(and only the following) text strings:
(1) "BR" (literally)
(2) "NT" (literally)
(3) "nA" where n is any positive integral numerical value including zero and
A may take any of the values "L", "P", "T", "V" or "Y"
(4) "An" where n is any positive integral numerical value including zero and
A may take either of the values "K" or "D".
Is this possible, please, and if so how? thanks

case of error. When selecting the cell - dropdown list is not coming visible.
In case I write something wrong it gives error message.

I have set up a data form and have data validation rules on the various input

unchecked. I have tried to do this, but it does not seem to work. Please

I have a sheet that is essentially just columns of data (except for the
column headings in the first row), and two of the columns are what I would
call 'mutually exclusive': i.e. if a value is entered in a row in either
column, the user must be prevented from entering any value in the same row
of the other column. The two columns already have some basic validation
applied (ranges of permissable numerical values), and this validation would
need to be applied for any values that are entered.
I am sure this can be done, but cannot see how!
Hope someone can help.

You can't return a null, buy you can return a null string...

You lost us. You just told us the formula is doing exactly what you want
("return of a blank cell is blank"). You'll need to provide a clearer
explanation of your problem. Examples are normally the best way.
