    Default Creating a form

    I have a worksheet that has a field allowing for a user to enter a part #. However, I would like for a description of the item to appear in the adjacent cell once the user enters a code. Example of my master list:


    Part # Description
    1 hammer
    2 screwdriver
    3 wrench
    4 tape

    If you can assist me with this I would greatly appreciate it

    VLOOKUP( value, table, index_number)

    value = cell of part#
    table = range of inventory:
    A1:B6
    index_number = return column

    VLOOKUP(a2, Y1:Z6, 2) lookup part# in cell A2, in table Y1:Z6, return what is in column 2

    Thanks!

    Will VLookup also allow for me enter a default message like, "Enter a part # in the box to the left"?
