HLOOKUP

HLOOKUP(lookup_value, table_array, row_index_num [,range_lookup])

Returns the value in the same column after finding a matching value in the first row.

lookup_valueThe value you want to find in the first row of the table.
table_arrayThe cell range or range name containing the table of data.
row_index_numThe row number for the value you want to return.
range_lookup(Optional) A logical value indicating the type of match:
True (<> 0) Closest match, exact or the next smallest (default)
False (= 0) Exact match, the first row does not have to be sorted

REMARKS
* XLOOKUP was added in Microsoft 365 to replace this function.
* For an illustrated example refer to the page under Lookup Functions
* This function is not case sensitive when searching for text strings.
* This function supports wildcards (? and *).
* Wildcard character: ? = a single character.
* Wildcard character: * = multiple characters.
* To include the actual wildcard characters use a tilde prefix (~?), (~*) and (~~).
* This function cannot return values that are above the lookup row.
* The "lookup_value" can be a number, text, logical value, or a name or reference that refers to one of these.
* If "lookup_value" cannot be found and "range_lookup" is False, then #N/A is returned.
* If "lookup_value" cannot be found and "range_lookup" is True, then the next smallest value is returned.
* If "lookup_value" is smaller than the smallest value, then #N/A is returned.
* If "table_array" contains duplicate values, then the results are based on the first match found.
* If "row_index_num" = 1, the first row value in "table_array" is used.
* If "row_index_num" = 2, the second row value in "table_array" is used.
* If "row_index_num" < 1, then #VALUE! is returned.
* If "row_index_num" > the number of rows in "table_array", then #REF! is returned.
* If "row_index_num" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.
* If "range_lookup" = True, then the first row must be sorted into ascending order (-1, 0, 1, a, A, FALSE, TRUE).
* This function will only return values less than 256 characters long. If the matching value is more than 255 characters, then #N/A is returned.
* You can use the XMATCH function to return the position of a value.
* You can use the VLOOKUP function to return the value in the same row.
* You can use the LOOKUP function to return a value in a row (or column) that matches a value in a column (or row).
* You can use the INDEX function to return the intersection of a row and a column.
* You can use the MATCH function to return the position of a value.
* You can use the INDEX and MATCH combination as an alternative when your 'lookup value' is not in the first row.

1 - Return the value in the 2nd row from the "Wheels" column. Exact match. This value is correct.
2 - Return the value in the 2nd row from the "Bearings" column. Exact match. This value is correct.
3 - Return the value in the 1st row from the "Bolts" column. Exact match. This value is correct.
4 - Return the value in the 1st row from the "NoMatch" column. Exact match. There is no match.
5 - Return the value in the 1st row from the "Wheel" column. Closest match. First row is not sorted. This value is wrong.
6 - Return the value in the 1st row from the "Bolt" column. Closest match. First row is not sorted.
7 - Return the value in the 1st row from the "NoMatch" column. Closest match. First row is not sorted. This value is wrong.
8 - Return the value in the 2nd row from the "NoMatch" column. Exact match. There is no match.
