Solving issues with "VLOOKUP"

VLOOKUP syntax

We often encounter "#N/A" while using VLOOKUP function to compare two lists. One of the most common problems that give rise to this error is extra spaces either to the end or to the beginning of the string.

What's the way out?

The simplest way out is to use "TRIM" function as a sub function.


While trying to use VLOOKUP in the normal course, the result will be "#N/A", whereas with TRIM nested in the VLOOKUP function will give the positive result.

(TRIM function removes the unwanted spaces in the beginning and end of a string.)

  7. The original conversion was applied to roughly 50 late-model Bally slot machines. Because the everyday machine stopped the reels mechanically in lower than 10 seconds, weights were added to the mechanical timers to prolong the automated stopping of the reels. By the time the New Jersey Alcoholic Beverages Commission had accredited the conversion to be used in New Jersey arcades, the word was 온라인카지노 out and each other distributor began adding ability stops.
