I am looking for a formula to search a column for a name then when found give me the data the cell next to it.


Example:



A
B
1
Name
Age
2
Tim
18
3
Kelly
22
4
Josh
19

<tbody>
</tbody>




Search Column A for Kelly it finds it ins A3 but the result returned is from B3 which would be 22.

Being able to have the formula repeated in the same cell to add multiple rows for the name would be helpful as well.


Thanks


Tim

Hi Tim,

=VLOOKUP(C1,$A$2:$B$4,2,0)

Where you would enter the name in C1.

I don't understand the second part.
