    Lookup Question (excel 97)

    Can dates be used as one of the components using lookup, vlookup, hlookup etc? Also, are there any online tutorials or books available that discuss the use of lookup functions in depth?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, something like this should work:

    <pre>=VLOOKUP(DATEVALUE("2/2/01"),A1:B3,2,TRUE)
    </pre>

    If you run a web search, I'm sure you'll find plenty of US College tutorials. See if eBooks, , and <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.cpearson.com/excel/lookups.htm>Chip Pearson are useful. Walkenbach's <A target="_blank" HREF=http://j-walk.com/ss/books/bookxl15.htm>Formula Book</A> is often recommended.
