I have this formula in a column
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(B192,ConsoTB!A:C,3,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(B192,ConsoTB!A:C,3,FALSE))
Whilst it is working for all items found in the sheet ConsoTB , it is not working for few matches even when the match exist in the sheet ConsoTB..
What could be the reason !!
 

Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Possible issues..

(1) The data type of the lookup value might be different from that of the value in the table.

(2) The values of interest might be surrounded with stray spaces or other invisible chars.
