using a date in vlookup
i want to perform a vlookup using the Now() function to generate the
lookup value (A1), the 1st column in the table [col B] array will be
all the dates in a year listed consequtive,, and the 2nd column being
a value assigned to each day in the 1st column [B]. My formula is
vlookup(A1,B1:C367,2). The result I get is "#N/A. What am i doing
NOW() returns both the date and the time, so you would be better off
using TODAY(), which only returns the date.
Another problem might be that your dates in column B are really text
values that just look like dates - see what happe...Importing text files into Excel

1. We have a list of numbers.

This works well in two stages ie. =Average then =countif......but if these

Are we completely stupid (sensible answers only), or have we missed the
