# Inventory to Invoice (most efficiant?)

#### Reaper_13_6

##### New Member
I have a list of inventory on sheet 3 with prices, location, seller, price, blah blah blah.

Each one with an inventory #. On the first page i have an invoice the same categories.
I'd just like to know the best way to make it so if i write the inv # in the first box A13.
I could have the rest of the boxes fill out ( A-J ), using inventory numbers and info found on sheet 3
(or is there another way?).

Should I be using excel at all? any help would be just great, Thank you.

(sry, am using excel 2000, on Win Xp SP2)

Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use \$ signs: \$V\$2:\$Z\$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying
Reaper_13_6,

Have you looked at a VLOOKUP formula?

Thanks a lot once i knew what it was called i was able to find what i needed easily.

Now i just need a way to make #N/A not appear.

I've read a lot about it so far but none of the solutions have worked for me. ill keep looking.

Thanks again.

Please post the formula so that we can suggest a fix.

Have a great day,
Stan

Reaper_13_6,

Here's a common method for returning a zero value if the vlookup formula doesn't find an exact match:

Code:
``=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(LUVALUE, LURANGE, RETCOL, FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(LUVALUE, LURANGE, RETCOL, FALSE))``
