Good evening
I am probably, again!, too stupid to figure this out by myself,
so I would be grateful for a hint.

I have a file with something like 25 sheets listing the patients who
visited my clinic before
grouped by year. In one sheet I have all names (about 2,000).

To make my work easier I set up a VLOOKUP function to help me enter zip
In sheet 2021 that formula looks like
=VLOOKUP(N77,'Zip codes'.$A$2:$B$150,2,0)
and refers to a sheet with the zip codes 3 sheets to the right. This
works fine.

However, when I copy the data (whenever there is something new) to the
"ALL" sheet to the right of 2021,
I get a "N/A", because the formula AGAIN refers to the THIRD sheet to
the right, that does not have any zip codes.

I tried to figure out, how to specify the sheet "Zip codes" as the
absolute address,
like:     =VLOOKUP(N76,$zip codes.$a$2$:$zip #REF!.$B$220,2,0)
but so far all attempts (for quite a while now!) at placing those $
marks have resulted in errors.

As long as you have a ”#REF!” involved you'll get an error. Get rid of that
first (replace it with what's supposed to be there), and then try again.
And what's ”$zip”? Is that a cell name? Then that's wrong too.

Another way to get around it is to name your range. Then your formula could
look something like =VLOOKUP(N76;ZipCodes;2;0)
Named ranges are absolute, always.

Kind regards

Johnny Rosenberg

I am sure, this is something very simple, but being a simpleton I just
cannot figure it out.

Thank you.
