Default vlookup puzzle

I have a 12 digit number in one area and doing the vlookup seems to be only
looking at the first 6 and rouding at that point. I need the lookup to look
at the entire 12 characters and do a match on all 12.

Please post your formula, the input values, whether your table was sorted, the reply you expected and what you got instead.

We're not clairvoyant!

You probably need to include the last option in the VLOOKUP formula........

=VLOOKUP(A1,MYTABLE,2,FALSE)
