I am working in an excel workbook where the first worksheet is the master worksheet followed by worksheets for each location. I want to do a VLOOKUP to match the the code in the first column of the master worksheet to the codes in the location worksheets (also in the first column). The data I want to pull into the master worksheet is in a different column in each of the location worksheets. Is there a way to setup the function so that it will pull from different columns in each worksheet without having to setup a different formula for each location in the master worksheet? For example, the information I need for location A is in column Q and the information needed for location B is in column S. I want to pull from the different columns using only one formula in the master worksheet.

If you have the names of the worksheets as headers, and you want to use VLOOKUP, here's the formula you'd need to deploy -

Assumptions -
1. B1 includes the sheet name;
2. A2 is the value you are looking up in each sheet
3. I have taken only two columns here (A:B). You need to change it to the number range of columns till where you have the data.
4. The column # will change automatically to the column where the formula is deployed.

Hope this helps !
