I have a spreadsheet that won't calculate a vlookup. The formula displays as the formula, not the result. In the formula dialog box, it displays an answer for the lookup (I don't know if the answer is correct) and if I click into the formula, it displays the cell references as I'd expect. It just doesn't want to actually display the result. Formula is:


The vlookup uses static lookup array (hence the $ symbols). I first tried this in Excel on another computer and had the same problem. Tried forcing the calculation and setting the file to auto-calculate, but no joy. Then opened it in Calc, saved as ODS, then tried again and I'm getting the same problem.

What's more, the relative reference to A2, which should change as the location of the lookup changes, doesn't change, so it always references A2.

Any wisdom is greatly appreciated.
