I have an application that I want to read a digital volt meter (DVM) in two ways. The first way is to continuously read the DVM and display the voltage on the screen. The second is to only read the DVM a single time when I hit a button. I can get both to run independently but I can't get switch from the continuously running procedure to the single read procedure because I can't cause anything to happen (or be recognized as having happened) while the continuous monitoring process is going on.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
