#### Lookup / Array Range / find the value

```I have seen similiar examples but not that were not using exact matches to
retrieve data. This seems simple and maybe I am over thinking but I have been
unable to crack this nut. I have a table where the first tier sales runs
between 0 and 20k and awards 1K commission. I want to be able to enter the
salse result for various team members and obtain the correct commission
amount based on their sales for the period. How should I complete the
commission formula for this process?

Sales Value Start	Sales Value Stop	Commission
\$0 	                \$20,000 	               \$1,000.00
\$20,001 	                \$25,000 	               \$1,100.00
\$25,001 	                \$30,000 	               \$1,200.00
\$30,001 	                \$35,000 	               \$1,300.00

Sales	Commission
\$5,000 	\$0
\$25,001 	\$0
\$32,000 	\$0

```

```Suppose your data is from A2 to C5 and your lookup value is in A10 then put
this formula =VLOOKUP(A10,\$A\$2:\$C\$5,3)

```Since you have the list sorted try LOOKUP() as below

=LOOKUP(25001,A1:A5,C1:C5)

```As I indicated in my prelude you cannot use 25001 in the formula as this must
represent random values that will not always be an exact matc for column A. A
value between 0 and 20000 should return the answer 1000from column C. A value
between 20001 and 25000 should return 1100 from column C. Exact matches are
easy but if the actual value = 22500 it is between 20001 and 25000 so should
return 1100 from C. That I have not been able to accomplish. Thanks

```Thanks for pointing out this solution. I knew I had missed something simple.
I swear I tried this and I had a problem but I cannot recreate the problem
tonight and this is working for all my test data. i will test my actual rate
charts tomorrow but for now this looks good to go.

AVERAGE cells on another worksheet when the range is calculated
I am trying to average a range of cells on the main worksheet of my workbook, but the cells to be averaged are on another worksheet in my workbook where the range of cells to be averaged is calculated from an input cell on the main worksheet Huh??

How do I insert a formula into chart source data values field box?
My ultimate aim is to build a chart that refers to values in a range of cells held in a row on another worksheet. Normally this would be straightforward by manually editing the source data in the chart and pointing to the range of cells. However, over time the range of cells used to provide the values for the chart will change and I am looking for a method that will do this automatically. I thought if I could produce a formula that identifies the cells when the change I could simply paste that formula into the Chart's source data values field. Of course, I've tried it but it will not ...

Exact lookup questions
These questions are more out of curiosity than anything else. I have been experimenting with VLOOKUP with an exact match, and would like some background to what seems to me to be curious behaviour. In cells A1:A4 I have 0.1 0.5 =1/3 0.4 The =1/3 displays as 0.333333333 in the cell and as =1/3 in the formula bar. In C1 I have: =VLOOKUP(D1,A1:A4,1,FALSE) In E1 I have =D1-A3, formatted as scientific with 2 decimal places. If I enter =1/3 in cell D1 I get a match and E1 displays 0.00E+00, as expected. Now for the curious bits. If I enter 0.333333333333333 in D1 (15 3's) then E1 knows ...
