VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

I should have been more clear, I don't want to minimize the application (excel) just the workbook inside the application. So, is there a way using VBA to minimize (and then maximize) a workbook within excel without minimizing the application itself?

Thanks

Would this be what you are after?
Code:
    ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMinimized
'- or - 
    ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMaximized
