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 to be found 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) Whether to find an exact match:
True / 1 = Closest match is returned (table_array must be sorted) (default)
False / 0 = Exact matches are returned (table_array does not have to be sorted)

Remarks

* For an illustrated example refer to the page under Lookup Functions.
* XLOOKUP was added in Office 365 to replace this function.
* This function is not case sensitive when searching for text strings.
* This function supports wildcards (? or *).
* Wildcard character: ? = a single character.
* Wildcard character: * = multiple characters.
* This function should be used when you want to lookup a matching value in a particular row of a table and then return a value in the corresponding column.
* 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 a one of these.
* If "lookup_value" is text, then it can also include the two wildcard characters (*) and (?).
* If "lookup_value" is smaller than the smallest value in the first row of "table_array", then #N/A is returned.
* If "lookup_value" cannot be found and "range_lookup" is True, it uses the largest value that is less than the "lookup_value".
* 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" is left blank, then True is used.
* If "range_lookup" = True, then an approximate match is returned. In other words, if an exact match is not found, the next largest value that is less than "lookup_value" is returned.
* If "range_lookup" = True, then "table_array" must be sorted into ascending order (-1, 0, 1, a, A, FALSE, TRUE).
* If "range_lookup" = False, then "table_array" does not have to be sorted.
* If "range_lookup" = False, then an exact match will be found. If one is not found, then #N/A is returned.
* 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 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 functions as an alternative when your 'lookup value' is not in the first row.
* You can use the OFFSET and MATCH functions as an alternative when your 'lookup value' is not in the first row.
