    With certain downlaoded reports I work with, it is necessary to go through each of the matching values on the reference table and hit F2-enter before the vlookup will work.

    1. Why does this happen? I have tried changing the numerical format's, etc. but only hitting F2 seems to change the referenced field.

    2. I have no idea how to write the simplest macro, but am guessing I could write one to go down the column and F2 each cell.

    Any help? Thanks in advance.

    The downloadable file at the link above explains the Times One fix, which is probably the answer you need.
