I noticed 2 things,
1- the lookup value was text and your lookup column is number, so you need to have consistent field type, either convert the Lookup column to tect or your lookup value to number

2- Vlookup can only find or look into item to the right not to the left, so here is the formula

=INDEX(B:B,MATCH(D2*1,A:A,0),1)

D2*1 converts the lookup value into number.

Hello,

Col_D values are in text. just convert them to numbers. Your VLOOKUP will be OK. Or use any of these,

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(D2+0,$A$1:$B$888,2,FALSE),"")

=IFERROR(INDEX($B$1:$B$888,MATCH(D2+0,$A$1:$A$888,0)),"")

Your table is sorted in ascending order on its match range. Given that:

=IF(D2="","",IF(LOOKUP(D2+0,$A$1:$A$888)=D2+0,LOOKUP(D2+0,$A$1:$A$888,$B$1:$B$888),""))

which should faster than a regular VLOOKUP with match-type 0 (or FALSE).

Note. D2+0 converts the lookup value in D2 from a text number into a true number.
