i am using a simple vlookup function

=vlookup(A13,$B$38..$C$76,2,False)

Even though there is correct value for A13 in the array table defined, it is
returning "N/A". Can someone tell me what is the problem?

Hi,
You may have leading or trailing spaces in your data.
Is "$B$38..$C$76" a typo?
Should probably be "$B$38:$C$76"

The problem is that whatever's in A13 is not in your table. You can check
with the formula:
=b38=$a$13
and copy this down.

You will get False for every entry in your table. Check for trailing spaces
or unprintable characters which make it look the same, but not to Excel.

Regards,
Fred
