    Hey folks,

    I know how to use VLOOKUP, but how do I use it the other way around. I want to look in a range of cells in the rightmost column, and when I find the thing I want, to return the value in the left most column. Sort of VLOOKUP reversed.

    Can anyone help me?

    Use Index/Match

    e.g.

    =INDEX(A1:C100,MATCH(D1,C1:C100,0),1)

    where A1:C100 is the table your looking at

    MATCH(D1,C1:C100,0) find the row number from the criteria presented in D1

    and 1 being the Column number
