Hi there

I was given this formula to search a worksheet against a cell.

=ISNUMBER(MATCH(A1,'Sheet1!$A$2:$A$606,0))

How do i now change the formula so that the data to the right (or left) of the column that i am seaching, is entered in the cell rather than just true or false.

i was using =VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet1!$A$2:$A$606,2,0) -but its not working.


Cell Sheet 1 Sheet 1
A1 Column A ColumnB

Can someone help me?

:rolleyes:

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.
