vlookup for words content when there are duplicate values


Can somebody help me here.
Thanks in advance.

When I vlookup Material 1 to Material 2 for the Project No, I get
the vlookup Project No. as 222-56 for all the duplicate Material
How formula to use so that when there are duplicate values in
Material2, I want to have vlookup searching to match Project No.
containg "AA" as 1st choice ? (if no Project No. containing "AA", then
looks for its content "AB" and subsequently looks for "AC" if there is
no  "AB"). 

ColumnA		ColumnB		ColumnC
Material 2		Duplicate?	Project No.
224410		duplicate		222-AC
224410		duplicate		222-AB
224410		duplicate		222-AA
326544		no		110007

Material 1		Vlookup
224410		222-56
224410		222-56
224410		222-56
527770		#N/A

Linking a sheet's content into a Word document

Is there a way to implant text from the Excel spreadsheet (which is in another file) into the Word document, so that it automatically opens the Excel spre...

Retrieving MS Word document's author..
How would I go about retrieving the author ( and consequently, of course, the title, comments, etc :) ) of a MS Word document? I use CFileFind to search a directory for ..doc files.

Using a VLookup "type" reference but the result is the CELL not th
