Hello Everyone. I feel I am over thinking this, but I hope someone can help.

I have a list of items I am looking up to have an output. The issue is I need multiple values across the table. When i drag the working vlookup string right, it changes the lookup value to the next column over and doesnt step up the col_index_#. I am hoping to not do a bunch of manual overrides to get it to work. Below is an example of what i want without typing it all in. There is alot of data to find and pull out specific items that will be used over and over again.

Thanks in advance

Lookup ValueItem 1Item 2Item 3Item 4Item 5Item 6
1234=vlookup(A2, Table1,2,False)=vlookup(A2, Table1,3,False)=vlookup(A2, Table1,4,False)=vlookup(A2, Table1,5,False)=vlookup(A2, Table1,6,False)=vlookup(A2, Table1,7,False)
2345=vlookup(A3, Table1,2,False)labEMEA7601Win7USA

Best guess based on the example.
Excel Formula:
=VLOOKUP($A2,Table1,COLUMNS($A2:B2),0)

Thanks for your reply. I want to find a unique number in a list and display A through J data. Does this explain it a bit better?

Yes. It didnt work for what i wanted. I found a work around that works with little effort but was getting to deep.

Can use $A2 and drag that down. :rolleyes: . Didnt think about this but it works. So i make one row of equations work and drop down to bottom. Thanks for your help.
