Hi,

I have two sheets, Sheet 1 and Sheet 2. Sheet 1 has reference values and sheet 2 has data. I have data in columns A,B,C,D in Sheet 2, and I want to lookup and match data from Sheet 1. Here's where it gets tricky- I want the formula to find a match in Column B first and if it can't find match/lookup value, it needs to move to column c and d. In the reference sheet there are just two columns, A & B, looking the value in A and Result value in B. I've tried to combine If and Match and Vlookup but to no avail. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

It may even be possible with formulas but I'm sure it would be possible with vba but it is not a task I would take on in a free public forum like this.
I understand, Let me know if we can discuss this offline? Or if you offer paid services, how much that would set me back. I know it could be possible, and I am pulling my hair on this one. Thanks!

That is not possible - see #4 of the Forum Rules

Have a look at the top of the forum:
