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 can return a value either from a onerow or onecolumn range or from an array. * 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 smaller than the smallest value in "lookup_vector", then #N/A is returned. * If "lookup_value" cannot be found, then the next smallest value is always returned. * If "lookup_value" cannot be found, this function cannot return #N/A. * The "lookup_vector" must be sorted into ascending order (1, 0, 1, a, A, FALSE, TRUE). * If "result_vector" is not the same size as "lookup_vector", you might still get the correct answer. * The vector form looks in a onerow (or onecolumn) range for a value and returns the value from the same position in the second range. * The array form looks in the first row (or column) for a value and returns the value from the same position in the last row (or column). * You can use the XMATCH function to return the position of a value. * You can use the HLOOKUP function to search for a value and return a different item from the same column. * You can use the VLOOKUP function to search for a value and return a different item from the same 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. * For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com * For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com
