Vlookup only the last 6 characters

```I have a spreadsheet starting in cell A4. I want to lookup only the last 6
digits in column A and then lookup the value in column J and return the
appropriate value from column K.

The values in column A are 000322341; 000333456; etc.

The values in column J are 322341; 333456; etc.

Here is my current non working formula...
=VLOOKUP(RIGHT(A4,6),\$J\$4:\$K\$7,2,0)

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
```

```The RIGHT function is returning a text value, and I'm guessing that the
values in column J are true numbers.  So you'd need to covert the text back
to numbers in order to have the lookup work properly:
=VLOOKUP(VALUE(RIGHT(A4,6)),\$J\$4:\$K\$7,2,0)

Removing last character of cell
I am trying to remove a comma which happens to be the last character in the cell. Does anyone know how to do this? Mira, You can use a combination of the Left and Right functions. Insert a blank column to the right of column you wish to change. In my example I will assume the data is in column A. Change the formula as necessary. In the empty cell enter the formula: =IF(RIGHT(A1,1)=",",LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1),A1) This formula is checking to see if the last character in cell A1 is infact a comma. If it is the formula will return all of the characters in cell A1 except the last...

CRM 1.2 - editing the IIS 6.0 metabase

VLookup and Indirect
I am currently using INDIRECT to get the lookup_value for VLOOKUP The formula I am using is: =VLOOKUP(INDIRECT(D2),INDIRECT("'"&B2&"'!A2:F20"),2,) where D2 is a text string (example:Akan 1-1) When I use the above formula I get #Ref If I place D2 in quotes: =VLOOKUP(INDIRECT("D2"),INDIRECT("'"&B2&"'!A2:F20"),2,). The correct result is returned. However this locks the reference to D2. I need to be able to use this code so that If I move it to the 3rd column it will read D3 and I would prefer n...

Time Format #6
I'm having a problem adding together journey times. I have a start time (say 8:34:00) and an end time (say 10:23:00) and from this I calculate a journey time (1:49:00). I then add this journey time (using the sum function) across a number of different journeys giving me a total. This total is in some case in excess of 24 hours and Excel seems to revert to 0 at 24 hours and start the sum again. So for example I can see when I highlight the range that the total is 27:49:00 but the sum function returns 03:49:00. Any ideas? Cheers Lee Use a custom format: [hh]:mm:ss The []...

Finger Friendly Theme for Wince 6.0

Does Wince 6.0 Provides a Finger-Friendly theme (With large icons, buttons....) 2. Does it has a "Finger" friendly touch algorithm for a 5-wire touch pad? Indika No, I'd say that it doesn't.
