Hello, I am trying to create a csv generator which will look up all the information from background speadsheets and bring it up in the necessary fields. I am not sure why but when I change the column index number (where the pricing info is), it does not want to work, can anyone help please? My formula is below: To look up Description =IF(LEN(E16)<1,IF(LEN(G16)<1,"",VLOOKUP(G16,MATCODE1,2,FALSE)),"") To look up Price =IF(LEN(G16)<1,IF(LEN(J16)<1,"",VLOOKUP(J16,MATCODE1,5,FALSE)),"")

I have a list of cities in my column a. I have all my active keywords in column b. I would like to extract all the city names so I get the destination in column C. Is this possible with a quick fix? I have tried to use a Vlookup true function, to get the closest variant. But this did not work. I have also tried an "If" with a "Is.number" and "Find" inside. But could not get this to work either. I am looking forward to hear from you. Best regards

in cell Q3 nest the existing VLOOKUP function in an IFERROR function. If the VLOOPUP function returns an error result, the text "invalid staff ID" should be displayed by the formula. Existing function is =VLOOKUP(Q2,CBFStaff[[Staff ID]:[Name]],2,FALSE)

I want to use vlookup to find values and if there is an error i want it to return the exact value that is there. so instead of zero or blank or error, I want it to return what is in the cell if there is an error.
