|excel vlookup return text||1.28||0.4||242||74|
A common problem with VLOOKUP is a mismatch between numbers and text. Either the first column in the table contains lookup values that are numbers stored as text, or the table contains numbers, but the lookup value itself is a number stored as text.Why does VLOOKUP return 0?
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.
