Col A has
ItemID Col B has
Model_Num Col C has a long list of
Model_Num. In Col D I want to lookup the
Model_Num of Col C and put the
item_id (colA) model_num (colB) to match (colC) new data (colD) -------- ---------- --------- --------- 870834 FD021 KPA8A 14667122 16595156 S3TA03B BW01B #N/A 10752514 FD1424B GM1500B #N/A 10756167 SU03B TA021 #N/A 14667130 KDAD FD021 870834 14667122 KPA8A FD021 870834
In the new data column (colD) I’m using the formula:
#N/A for everything though. Any help is appreciated.
You have a mistake in your VLOOKUP formula and/or the way your data is organized by column. VLOOKUP can not be used to look up values to the left of the lookup value in the VLOOKUP table – you would have to use an INDEX/MATCH function to do that – or you could just do this.
1) You could cut and insert your column A(item_iD) to the right of your current column B(model_num). Then adjust your VLOOKUP formula appropriately. (So basically your item_id and model_num columns are backwards currently).
If you want to keep your column order “as is” then you will need to use an INDEX/MATCH function which I can certainly provide:
Leave your data as is and put that in the top cell column D and then autofill down. It should give you what you want.
