    Good Morning,

    I want a small help with the VLOOKUP function.
    It doesn't work for me.
    I want to write the number of the desired object (in my sheet the object is the container).

    Thanks in advance,

    Attached file.

    Excel Version
    Excel 2016
    It should be:

    =VLOOKUP(N3,'CONTAINERS-TABLES'!C2:J5,2,FALSE)

    note, when referencing sheets with special characters like the dash or space, it is best to enclose the sheetname in single quotes.
    Also, the table range your reference should contain the lookup value in the first column... so column C in this case, then the index column number is counted from that column.

    Thanks a lot
    Now I can see why it didn't work for me. I didn't realize that it should be in the first column.
    Big Thanks
