```Good morning Brian and all:

I did this in my workbook:

Sheet 1     Sheet2
1st Matrix  2nd Matrix                 VlookUp                      Result
Name      Name                 Formula

0 A.D.     0 A.D. Empires Ascendant =BUSCARV(A2;Hoja1.A3:A6;1;1) 0 A.D.
2HFU       3D Chess                 =BUSCARV(A3;Hoja1.A3:A6;1;1) 2HFU
3D chess   Abe                      =BUSCARV(A4;Hoja1.A3:A6;1;1) 3D chess
```
```
```
```In the first case I tried to find "0 A.D. Empires Ascendant" from 2nd
Matrix - sheet 2- in the 1st Matrix -sheet 1- and found "0 A.D." ... it
was good !

But in the second case I tried to find "3D Chess" that is the third
element in the first Matrix-Sheet 1- and the found result is "2HFU" ...
it isn't good and confused me.

In the last case I tried to find "Abe" and found "3D chess" more confuse
to me.

As I can see the VlookUp find always the element that continue in order
in the list of the 1st Matrix not the name that I'm finding.

And if I used "=BUSCARV(An;Hoja1.A3:A6;1;0)" with zero at end, the tree
results are "#N/D" ("An" is for not to repeat tree times the formula)

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong  or there is a bug

Some time ago, VlookUp was using only to search exactly element (Only
equal) now it has so strange behaivor (At least to me)

Regards,

Jorge Rodríguez

No probs!

```
```I just order both matrix alphabetically and I
tried to use VlookUp but it gave me a several false-positive as you told me.
```

If you get false matches from a simple VLOOKUP(),
it is possible that you have not set the fourth
parameter correctly. If, as here, there may not
be a match, you need to set the SortOrder
parameter to FALSE or zero, irrespective of whether the list is sorted.

I trust this helps.
