Hi

When i use a vlookup even though it is correctly entered and all the data is correct, the outcome ends up being different to what it should be, also some of the boxes end up with Value and NA.

any help would be appreciated,

one of the formulas is below.

Code:
=VLOOKUP(H12,'Menu Data'!C12:D16,2)

many thanks

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

I cant see anything inheritantly wrong with your formula. Can you post some examples of your data set and what the outputs should be and what you are getting?

Please do not insert an image. Use Excel Jeanie - then we can copy from your post into Excel.
