# HLOOKUP

HLOOKUP checks the first row of the given data table for the specified value and returns a corresponding value in that column, based on the row given.

Syntax

HLOOKUP(lookup_value; data_table; row_index; [mode])

lookup_value: The value to look for in a range/array. E.g. "B"

data_table: The table containing the data to test. E.g. A1:G2

row_index: The row that you want to get the corresponding value from (starting with 1 for the top-most row in the data table). E.g. 2

mode: Specifies how the data_table must be,

-1 - The first row must be sorted in descending order. The exact match or the next greatest value is considered.

0 - The first row can be unsorted. The exact match or regex match is considered.

1 and >2 - The first row must be sorted in ascending order. The exact match or the next smallest value is considered.

2 - The first row can be unsorted. Only the exact match is considered.

Remarks

• Use named ranges for data_table . This helps refer a single source data table to create multiple tables for calculation and analysis.

• If you don't remember the complete text you have to search for, use  .* .?  and  instead.

.* - Can be used to replace any number of characters. E.g.  Zyl.*  finds  Zylker
.? - Can be used to replace a single character. E.g.  Karthi.?  finds  Karthik  and  Karthic

/ - Can be used to include *, ? and / in the search term. E.g.  Zylker/*  finds  Zylker*  and  Karthi.?/?  finds  Karthik?  and  Karthic?

• HLOOKUP is case-insensitive i.e. "APPLES" and "Apples" are treated similar.

Examples

 Formula Result =HLOOKUP( "B" ; A1:G2 ;2;0) 70 =HLOOKUP(2508; I1:O2 ;2;1) Ming Yin

Possible Errors

 Errors Meaning #N/A! The function could not find the value it was asked to look for. Commonly occurs in VLOOKUP and similar functions. If mode is 0 or FALSE, #N/A! indicates that the exact match is not found in the given data_table. If mode is 1 or TRUE, #N/A! indicates that the given lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first row of data_table. #NAME! The function name is incorrect or invalid. The given defined name (if any) is invalid. There is a typo in the defined name used in the function. Double quotes are missing for text values in the function. Colon missing in a cell range reference. #VALUE! The given argument's data type is incorrect or invalid. For example, the function =DATE(A1:A3) will return a #VALUE error when a text value is present in the range. The row_index value is less than 1 #REF! The given cell reference is incorrect or invalid. This error may occur when a cell/range has been deleted, moved, or pasted over. The row_index value is higher than the number of rows in data_table.
