I need to use the VLOOKUP formula to pull data from a range of cells on another sheet in the same workbook.
Can anyone give me the exact syntax to do this. My workbook name is Estimate.xls and the Worksheet name is PriceList.Here is my formula which does not work! Thanks.
=IF(G313=0,"-",VLOOKUP(G313,PriceList!A1:D5000,4,0))

There's nothing wrong with your formula. Are you sure the value in G313 exists in your lookup table?

I also agree that the formula is fine yet I return only a "-" no matter what I type in G313. I have triple checked to make sure the values entered in G313 matches whats in the first column A of the LOOKUP table. There must be something simple I am missing....

Thanks for your reply.

Double check that the value in G313 has a corresponding match in column A of your data table. Check things like:

•One is a text value and the other is a numeric value (use the ISTEXT and ISNUMBER functions)
•One has trailing spaces (e.g., "Barrie " compared to "Barrie")

AS a follow up to this problem for anyone who is interested:

The worksheet I inherited was converted from Lotus 123 to Excel. Under the Options/Transition Tab the two transition check boxes for formulas were checked on which screws up the LOOKUP Formula as I had composed it. If I check those two boxes off the LOOKUP formula works as it should but all other formulas in the worksheet will not calculate but return #Value!

So, how do I make Lotus 123 transitioned formulas and the LOOKUP I created work together in harmony ? Can anyone help?
