Is this a proper statement?

Code:
.Range("K8") = Application.VLookup("D*CUE2", lurange1, 8, False)
I'm not certain I can use a wildcard in this context. In fact, I'm not sure it's even the right formula for what I want to do.

I want to vlookup either "DRCUE2" OR "DTCUE2", whichever the vlookup finds first.
 

Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

Is lurange1 a Range object declared in your code? (? might be a better wildcard than * here)

Thank you Rory for your reply. 'lurange1' is declared as a range object, yes. The suggestion of using '?' over the '*' wildcard appears to have done the trick. I will have to continue to test.

I appreciate your help.
