Hope this helps:

I have a general Ledger spreadsheet.  1 of the pages is a chart of accounts:

COL A                                       COL B

1234 (Account Number)         Rent (Account Name)

Another page is cash account data entry:

Account _____ Data entry (must match the entry in the chart page)

ACCT NAME (formula below)


the if function checks to see if there is an entry in the acct number cell.  if not, the acct name stays blank

the lookup checks the data entry cell, then looks on the CHART page from A1 to B114 (both columns)

I have 114 GL accounts.

Ashamed to ask but cannot get VLOOKUP to work.

I am trying to look up the value in column A in sheet 1 in sheet 2 column 1 and insert the value found in column 10 in sheet 1. Neither sheets are sorted.

=VLOOKUP(A2,'Bookings_Between_Apr_to Jun_2018_data'.$A2:$L64,10,0)

As I understand things 'Bookings_Between_Apr_to Jun_2018_data'.$A2:$L64 is supposed to define the array in which to search and I thought the $ signs fixed the range but no, when I copy the formula down the page the array changes.

Where am I going wrong please?

I think I have it.  Should have been:-

=VLOOKUP(A2,'Bookings_Between_Apr_to Jun_2018_data'.$A$2:$L$64,10,0)

Please forgive false alarm
