Vlookup when Lookup_Value starts with "~" seems to always returns N/A even if there a value to return.

I have rechecked my formula several time, its works with all value on my list except when lookup_value starts with "~".

~ is obtained on my keyboard (set as English United States) by clicking on
Shift + the key just left of the "1" key.

Anybody knows how to resolve that problem without changing the ~ in the lookup_value field (since this caracter is necessary to keep the field as a primary key)

Thanks

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Thanks!

I have tried the search function of the board to find it but I was unsucessful withthe following query: +vlookup +~

May I ask you the query syntax you entered to find it ?

Thanks
