HLOOKUP

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

 

This function searches for a value in the top row and then returns a value in the same column from a specified row.

Syntax

HLOOKUP(value,array,row,approx)

Arguments

This function has these arguments:

Argument

Description

value

Value to be found in the first row

array

Array or range that contains the data to search

row

Row number in the array from which the matching value will be returned

approx

[Optional] Logical value indicating whether to find an approximate match; if omitted, uses TRUE and finds an approximate match

Remarks

If approx is FALSE, it finds an exact match, not an approximate match. If it cannot find one, it returns an #N/A error value.

If approx is TRUE or omitted, and the value cannot be found, then the largest value that is less than the value is used.

This function is similar to VLOOKUP except that it searches by row (horizontally), instead of vertically (by column).

Data Types

Accepts numeric or string data. Returns numeric data.

Examples

HLOOKUP("Test",A1:D5,3,TRUE)
