Hi there,

I'm having a really strange problem with Vlookups that I've never encountered before this is a copy of the formula I'm using:

=VLOOKUP(C2,SUPPLIERS!A1:B188,2,FALSE)

However when I use the autofill function The range automatically changes i.e instead of A1:B188 it automatically increments this to A2:B189 , and son on as a result my answers are not coming out the way they are supposed to be. I know this is probably a very simple problem however I can't get my head around it please someon help me out as my deadline is this afternoon.
 

Excel Facts

Select all contiguous cells
Pressing Ctrl+* (asterisk) will select the "current region" - all contiguous cells in all directions.

Fix the row references in the lookup range like this:

=VLOOKUP(C2,SUPPLIERS!A$1:B$188,2,FALSE)
