    Find Row Number (Excel 2003)

    Hi All, I think this may be easy and I'm just struggling ...

    I use a vlookup up to find a value ...

    =VLOOKUP(StudyNum,'Examine DataPool.xls'!StudyNumbers,4,FALSE)

    Is there a way to determine the Row number where the value is found?

    Thanks,
    --cat

    You would need to specify the first column of the StudyNumbers range, or create a named range corresponding to the first column of StudyNumbers.

    The formula
    <code>
    =MATCH(StudyNumber,'Examine DataPool.xls'!B3:B100,0)
    </code>
    will return the row number within B3:B100 where StudyNumber is found. If you want the absolute row number, you can use
    <code>
    =MATCH(StudyNumber,'Examine DataPool.xls'!B3:B100,0)+ROW('Examine DataPool.xls'!B3:B100)-1
    </code>
    You can replace B3:B100 with a name if available.
