    Is there a way to reference multiple values without using a nesting IF function?

    Let me clarify:
    our internal codes for subdivisions are not known to vendors and subcontractors, who I am in constant contact with. Instead of handwriting the full name, I would like to enter the code in a cell and have it return the full name to a form that will then be sent to the vendor.
    example:
    ams02, bgr12, cfs06 - enter any of these into one cell and have the appropriate name returned to another
    Ada Moorings, Bailey's Grove
    This will save me at least an hour a day.

    =VLOOKUP(A1,{"ams02","Ada Moorings";"bgr12","Bailey's Grove";...},2,0)

    or...

    =VLOOKUP(A1,B1:C10,2,0)

    ...where B1:C10 contains...

    {"ams02","Ada Moorings"
    ;"bgr12","Bailey's Grove"
    ;...}
