    Vlookup (excel 2003)

    Hi all, I've got to populate a templateA from a spreadsheet B. Whilst each person in spreadsheet B has a unique identifier, they may have more than 1 entry in spreadsheet B, each entry containing the unique identifer. This is causing a problem for the Vlookup I'm using in TemplateA as it only picks the first instance of the information in Spreadsheet B and doesn't look for any other instances. Is there any way to get the Vlookup to check all of Spreadsheet B to check for secondary / third etc instances?

    I hope I explained this OK. It's often quite difficult to explain these scenarios in the written word!!

    TIA
    Sheila

    Check out sdckapr's custom function VLookupAll in <post:=395,235>post 395,235</post:>. He gives examples of how to use it.
