Use Evaluate

i = Evaluate("VLOOKUP(Sheet1!A2,Sheet1!A1:C10,3,0)")

Change ranges to suit needs.

I'm not very familiar with Evaluate()... but I don't think you can use RC[-1] in it. You'll have to replace it with cell names, for example A1.

You could use i=WorksheetFunction.VLOOKUP( ...

but I'm not sure that you can use RC[-1]. This is a relative reference, what is it relative to?
