=vlookup(“New York”,A2:C100,3,False). Col A was sorted and is the City. Col B is the emp-name. Col C is where I want the emp-name it finds to go. Ex. Found “New York” hit in Row37 ColA. Next column cell B37 is his name which I want put in Col C row 37. It is going into row 2 of col. C. Ps. Thank you for replying. Am new to vlookup. I say I am advanced beginner ready to go into the intermediate category.
You were telling it to look up "New York" in column A, and return the value from column C in that row. But it sounds like you actually want to return the value from column B.
In the formula, you don't tell it which cell to return the value to. The value will be returned to whatever cell you have placed the formula in.
