In this article, we are going to learn how to use VLOOKUP function to check if a value exists in the data.
We use Vlookup function to look for a value in the table from the extreme left column, and then return the value in same row from the specified column.
|Value for that we want to lookup||Table from which we want to lookup the value||Which is column number we want to pick||Exact match or approximate match|
Let’s take an example to understand how we can use the VLOOKUP formula to check if the value exists in the data.
We have 2 data sets. 1st is main data and 2nd is updated data. Now, we want to update the main data from the updated data.
To retrieve the manufacturer details in the sheet, follow below given steps and formula:-
1) A4:- This is the loopkup range in the main data in which we want to update the manufacturer detail.
2) I4:R19:- This is the table range of the updated data from which we want to update the data.
3) 10 :- 10 we have mentioned to pick the column value.
4) False:- False we have mentioned for exact match.
This is the way we can check the value if exist in the data, using Vlookup function.
