In its simplest form, the VLOOKUP function says: =VLOOKUP (What you want to look up, where you want to look for it, the column number in the range containing the value to return, return an Approximate or Exact match – indicated as 1/TRUE, or 0/FALSE).

Why INDEX-MATCH is better than VLOOKUP. There are many ways of looking up and retrieving values from a table of data in Excel. The VLOOKUP() and HLOOKUP() functions are widely used because of their simplicity, but they have some limitations and can fall down in certain situations. The INDEX(MATCH()) combo is a far more robust and reliable method.

VLOOKUP function retrieves a 0 value when the value in column C is an empty cell. To convert 0 to an empty string we can use LEN and IF functions. LEN function has the result 0 for the blank cells. With IF function we are checking if the LEN function result is 0 and if the condition is met, lookup result is an empty string.
