Problem with copy/paste VLOOKUP formula
When I enter a VLOOKUP formula in a cell and then copy and paste it all the
way down the remainder of the column, it not only changes the cell of the lookup value, it also changes the row/column of the table  array Example: If I enter =VLOOKUP(A1,G1:H7,2,0) in cell C1 and then copy and paste it to cell C2, it changes C2 to =VLOOKUP(A2,G2:H8,2,0). What I really want is for C2 to contain the result of looking up A2 in G1:H7 just like it does for C1. I dont want it to look in G2:H8. Similarly, pasting the formula into C3 causes it to look in G3:H9 i/o G1:H7.

Answer: Problem with copy/paste VLOOKUP formula
I understand your frustration with the VLOOKUP formula changing the table array when you copy and paste it. Fortunately, there is a simple solution to this problem.
Instead of using absolute cell references (i.e. A1, G1:H7), we can use mixed cell references (i.e. $A1, $G$1:$H$7) to lock the table array in place while allowing the lookup value to change as we copy and paste the formula. Here's how to do it:
Using mixed cell references is a great way to ensure that your formulas stay consistent as you copy and paste them throughout your worksheet.

Problem with copy/paste VLOOKUP formula
Use the $ signs which create an absolute reference. So in cell C1 the formula
would be =Vlookup(A1,$G$1:$H$7,2,0) "GKW in GA" wrote: When I enter a VLOOKUP formula in a cell and then copy and paste it all the way down the remainder of the column, it not only changes the cell of the lookup value, it also changes the row/column of the table  array Example: If I enter =VLOOKUP(A1,G1:H7,2,0) in cell C1 and then copy and paste it to cell C2, it changes C2 to =VLOOKUP(A2,G2:H8,2,0).

Problem with copy/paste VLOOKUP formula
If the table array is more than 2 columns, is it possible to paste more than
one column into the target cols. Lets say the tablearray instead of G1:H7, it's G1:I7.

Problem with copy/paste VLOOKUP formula
All you have to do is include the *entire* datalist cell references in the
formula, and then just change the column index number when you enter the formula in Column D. For example, in C1: =VLOOKUP($A1,$G$1:$I$7,2,0) And, in D1: =VLOOKUP($A1,$G$1:$I$7,3,0) And copy down as needed. Now, if you have a lot more columns to include in your lookup, you can use another function within the Vlookup formula to *automatically* increment the column index number as you copy the original formula across columns, along a row. And then copy down as needed. For example, if you had Columns G to K in your datalist, enter in C1: =VLOOKUP($A1,$G$1:$K$7,Rows($1:2),0) And copy across to F1. This would *automatically* increment the column index number, from 2 to 5. Then copy down as needed.  HTH, RD  Please keep all correspondence within the NewsGroup, so all may benefit !

vlookup(lookup_value,table_array,col_index,[range_lookup])
you can use =VLOOKUP(A1,$G$1:$i$7,3,0)  will return the value on I column (3rd column) =VLOOKUP(A1,$G$1:$i$7,2,0)  will return the value on H column (2nd column) is it answer your question?  regards from Brazil Thanks in advance for your feedback.

If you copy the formula across 5 columns, that A1 will change to B1, C1, D1,
etc. That's why I made the column absolute, and left the row relative.  Regards, RD  Please keep all correspondence within the NewsGroup, so all may benefit !

Problem with copy/paste VLOOKUP formula
RagDyer,
I am having trouble understanding the logic of your example =VLOOKUP($A1,$G$1:$K$7,Rows($1:2),0) of how Rows($1:2) causes the column indexing number to be incremented from 2 to 5. Would you mind explaining. Here is a practical of something I am actually trying to do: I have a workbook, BOOK1, that has one column, A. I also have BOOK2 that has column A thru F. Column A is formatted the same in BOOK1 and BOOK2, in fact BOOK2.A is a subset of BOOK1.A. I would like to use VLOOKUP to populate cols B thru F of BOOK2 into BOOK1.xB to BOOK1.xF in the rows for which BOOK1.xA = BOOK2.xA (x being the row number) "RagDyer" wrote: All you have to do is include the *entire* datalist cell references in the formula, and then just change the column index number when you enter the formula in Column D.

Problem with copy/paste VLOOKUP formula
The Columns() function
=Columns($A:B) has *nothing* to do with where or what your table array is! The Columns() function (different from the Column() function) *only* returns a number. For example, In A1 enter: =Columns(A:A) In A2 enter: =Columns ($A:A) In A3 enter: =Columns(A:$J) Now, select those 3 cells and drag across to copy to say Column J. See what happens? The good part about using this function is that *no matter* where you enter it, you *always* get the same number. So, =Columns($A:B) returns 2 if entered in A1 or entered in Z100. You can enter your Lookup formula anywhere, and just adjust the Columns() function to start with whatever number (column index) you need and it will increment (or decrement) as you copy it across. Rows() works exactly the same way, returning numbers as it's copied down.
