    Help creating a VLookup to retrieve training status

    Hello. I need a Vlookup formula which searches one sheet for learners and retrieves data from a specific column. In the attached example, I believe the data to be retrieved is in column 15. I will use this as a template and update the 15 to the correct column number for future reports. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

    Try INDEX MATCH instead:

    =INDEX(Report!O:O,MATCH(A2,Report!A:A,0))

    In B2 =VLOOKUP(A2;Report!1:1048576;15;0), if I understand what you are trying to achieve
