VLOOKUP #N/A Error
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
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.
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
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
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

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
