Hi All,
i have a few hundred rows of data for maintenance for trucks and the the unique data is the registration (rego) with its status
The rego could be in the column a few times as it might have a few maintenance issues. Once the maintenance issues have been fixed we change the status to "Completed"

I am currently using a vlookup to workout what is available and unavailable although the vlookup only finds the first match and displays the data. Problem i have is the first match could be "Completed" so i dont see the unavailable repairs.

Is there another formula to use apart from vlookup, or how can i change my formula to ignore the "Completed" matches?

Code:
=Iferror(vlookup(C2,Reverse!$B$1:AG2014,32,false),"Available")


Column C= rego
in reverse (lookup table), column B is the rego and column AG is the status


thanks in advance for your help
Sam

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.
