Vlookup to get Named Range


Good Morning all,

I have a workbook where I need to use a Vlookup to get pricing by work location and EE Name.  Basically, I'm trying to use a vlookup to lookup the named range (Ranges tab, rows 1-3) and then use that named range in another vlookup to get the pricing for that work location. I need the results to show up on the Data tab in column G. I tried the following to no avail:

=VLOOKUP(F2,"Ranges!" & VLOOKUP(Ranges!A1:B3,2,FALSE),2,FALSE)

The data is extracted from an access database and I need to format for billing statements to different EE's with different work locations.

For row 2 on the data tab, i would need it to return 20 (AB&C Co / Urban location)

For row 3 on the data tab, I would need it to return 15.

Any help would be appreciated.

You need to use the INDIRECT function to convert the looked-up range name to a range address. Please enter this formula in DATA!G2 and copy down.


I would replace Ranges!$A$2:$B$3 with a named range "Ranges"



Hello amberella, How did you make out? Did you get your lookups to work as you wanted?
