I keep getting a #N/A error even though I think my syntax is correct. I am entering: =VLOOKUP(CELL REF TO VALUE I'M LOOKING FOR, PAGE AND ARRAY REF FOR POTENTIAL VALUES, # COLUMN THAT CONTAINS RESULTS, FALSE) Does anyone know why I would get a #N/A error? I have tried sorting the data and starting with an array value greater than my lookup value, and I know that all of my lookup values have matches in the array. Any ideas? If you're certain that there's a match, then the usual suspects are: Leading/trailing/extra spaces in either the cell reference (or the key column in ...

I'm currently using vlookup to select paragraphs of information depending on a dropdown list. The vlookup refers to an array in another sheet. Is there any way of showing an image as well so that when I pick from a dropdown list, it selects an image from one of the cells in the lookup array? Thanks Mike Mike Yes, there is a way. You can employ event code and VLOOKUP with Data Validation list selection to choose which picture to show?

I have just used some vlookups to find some information on a Unique ID. Unfortunately each week a few of these ID's are deleted and some are added- so a vlookup can not find information pertaining to them. The good news is that the data is sorted in such a way that when a vlookup returns a NA, b/c it can't find info on the related to the ID, that all data above it is what I need. For instance, after running a Vlookup I left with: ID's Region location 1 NY NYC 2 NA NA 3 CAL LA 4 ...

I have a worksheet that has dates in column B and file # in column A. In cell J12, i have this formula =min(B2:B100), in L12, I have a vlookup to return the information in column A that matches the date =vlookup(J12,A2:B100,1,0). I receive a #name error. Any ideas? VLOOKUP goes left to right. Are you able to move dates to A, and file names to B? what about having filenames in both A and another column to the right of the dates column (say in column C enter the formula =A12 in cell C12... then change the range in your VLOOKUP to B:C)? since your lookup value is a date returned wit...

I don't use Vlookup much and it's not working for me. I know it's user error so can you tell me what I did wrong? I have two worksheets in my file. In the first one, I have a list of addresses with a full unabbreviated US state name in column T, row 2. Column U is blank because I want to put the two-digit state code in there (starting with U2). In the second worksheet I have the full state name in Column A and the two-digit code for it in Column B (rows 1-50). Here's my formula starting in U2: =VLOOKUP(T2,StateCodes!$A$1:$B$50,2,FALSE) What is wrong? ...

I am creating a paste link from worksheet A to worksheet B. The cell on worksheet A is formatted with one word in regular arial font and the second word in italics. Is there a way to keep this formatting in a paste link at the destination (worksheet B)? So far, I have tried the paste link and immediately followed with the paste special format, but this has had no effect. Likewise, I am attempting the same exercise with VLOOKUP. Would anyone have a solution? Thanks! First, formulas can return values--they can't change formats. And second, excel doesn't support that kind of ...

Worksheet2. Column A is the name of a project Column B is a date Column C is word count Column D is photo count There are about 400 rows of information under those headings.

Then I need that row to appear on a new Worksheet3 under official names that I define. If this is a vlookup, I'd really appreciate a formula that allows me to look up the keyword "Clack" and put that row under my row called...
