Hey all ,

Hope you all are well . I have data in 3 columns A, B and C

Currently I run formula for vlookup that looks like this = "=VLOOKUP(E1,A:B,2,0)"

The results are ok. but I now want to add a condition that if column C's value = 1 then show me the result of vlookup from the formula above and if value is not 1 then do nothing.


for instance

Column AColumn BColulmn C
123abc3
124def2
125ghi1

<colgroup><col width="64" span="3" style="width:48pt"> </colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

Cell E1 = 123
output = ""

Cell E1 = 124
output = ""

Cell E1 = 125
output = ghi

So when "1" was found in target.row of column C then the vlookup worked for that particular row and output the desired value.


Will appreciate a lot..

THANKS.

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Maybe this:

=IF(VLOOKUP(E1,A:C,3,0)=1,VLOOKUP(E1,A:B,2,0),"")
