From: dnmusic on 7 May 2010 12:49 i need a formula that will look up a word then give me the numbers in a cell next to that word. the formula i'm using (which isn't working right) is =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A6,'Export 1'!\$B\$1:\$Z\$65467,11,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(A6,'Export 1'!\$B\$1:\$Z\$65467,11,FALSE)) this may be too much formula for what i need but i'm not sure... here's what i'm actually trying to do. i would like to set up a check list or something so when people select a certain row by adding a X, the following information will auto fill onto another sheet... From: Max on 7 May 2010 16:23 Your vlookup looks ok. If its not returning 100% correct results, then it's probably your data quality that's causing it, eg extraneous white spaces throwing correct matching off. You could use TRIM to improve robustness, something like this: =VLOOKUP(TRIM(A6), ....).
