How to calculate carton size in cubic ft.

Carton size and cubic feet auto calculate..
23May07
I have an Excel sheet for our "Shipping Manifest". It shows how many pieces
in a carton, carton size, cubic feet, etc
We have standard carton sizes we use which we've named
Carton A = 18 x 18 x 18 = 3.38 Cubic Fee
Carton B = 18 x 18 x 14 = 2.63 Cubic Fee
Carton C = 18 x 16 x 14 = 2.33 Cubic Fee
... etc, on down to Carton J
Is there a way to make it so we can type A, B, C, etc under "CTN SIZE"
column it will automatically enter the cubic feet for us under the cubic
feet column? Then at the bottom of the sheet we'll have a total which will
total up the cubic feet for us.

Set up a table. Name it something like CuFtTbl
A 3.3
B 2.6
C 2.3
...
Then use this formula
=VLOOKUP(CTN_SIZE,CuFtTbl,2,FALSE

Here's what I have currently.
Sheet1 has my Shipping Manifest
Sheet2 has the following data from A1 to B1
BOX C
A 3.3
B 2.6
C 2.3
D 2.0
E 1.5
F 1.0
G .6
H .4
I .4
J .2
I typed that data in, highlighted it all then converted it to a table
I think where I am having trouble is the "lookup value
I have written what Ron suggested and tried to go through the evaluate thing
to find errors.

You can use=IF(A1="","",IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet2!
You can us
=IF(A1="","",IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet2!$A$2:$B$11,2,0)),"Incorrect Value
Entered",VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet2!$A$2:$B$11,2,0))
replace A1 with the cell where you input the siz
or hard coded which means you don't need the table in Sheet
=IF(A1="","",IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A1,{"A",3.38;"B",2.63;"C",2.33;"D",2.04;"E",1.56;"F",1.04;"G",0.65;"H",0.41;"I",0.41;"J",25},2,0)),"Incorrect

Entered",VLOOKUP(A1,{"A",3.38;"B",2.63;"C",2.33;"D",2.04;"E",1.56;"F",1.04;"G",0.65;"H",0.41;"I",0.41;"J",25},2,0))

Thanks. I used the hard coded method. Is there a way for this to also work
in Excel 972003 format? It's not a big deal if it won't work, but three
machines in our office aren't upgraded to Excel 2007.
