Hi,
thanks for looking?
When I download some nominal data from the finance systeminto excel the supplier number (which is a mixture of letters and numbers) appearseither at the start, middle or the end of a text string including otherinformation. Therefore if I am wanting to do a vlookup against this informationto get the supplier name against the supplier master table (supplier number inone row and supplier name in the other) it does not work, also the right, midor left has to be adjusted accordingly.
I have a master list of the supplier numbers in one column,supplier name in another column, thatthe formula can lookup to and hopefully it can return the supplier name as theresult.
I am not sure whether the formula I am looking for is like acontain formula, if it contains the supplier number return the supplier namefrom the list.
Hope this makes sense, any ideas?
