Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

Jon von der Heyden helped me with multiple cell lookups here: http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/showthread.php?t=478330

But I'm not sure what you want to do, so maybe that won't help too much.

Why do you want to merge the cells in columns A and B? So you can do a standard VLOOKUP? If that's why, see the post I linked. You don't need to concatenate the two cells and then use that as your reference--you can match column A and column B and return column C.
