A VLOOKUP row is an expression that searches for data that closely resembles or is exactly the same as the lookup value. An example is a list of website links. Some of the links start with “https://” at the beginning. An approximate match is fine because the rest of the URL will match; an exact match will prevent errors from being returned by the formula. This formula will only work for data that is identical to the lookup value.
To perform a lookup on more than one column, use the VLOOKUP function. It will attempt to lookup data in a sheet with more than one row. When you use the VLOOKUP function, you must enter the lookup value in column A, and the return value in column B. The column index argument is normally a hard-coded or static number. Otherwise, Excel will try to do a lookup on the same sheet as the function. The column identifiers are named col1, row1, and row2, respectively. In this way, if cell B4 has a score of 77, VLOOKUP will return grade B, instead of grade C.
You can also use a VLOOKUP function to find a single row or column. The ROW function will find the value in a cell or range based on the column reference. The lookup value can be a single row or column, and the match type will be either 0 or an exact match. The VLOOKUP function can return multiple values, depending on how you use it. You can even combine several columns with the VLOOKUP function.
