Mistake #1. Writing the Vlookup Formula beforeGetting the Backend Table Array Ready
If you are like most users that focus only on writing the Vlookup andwait the answer to be pulled and be presented to you, big mistake.You may sometimes have the results done, other times you willstruggle until desperation.For example, the following Vlookup formula is correct:=VLOOKUP(A2,Haystack!$A$2:$E$12,5,0)
Just to remember the syntax:
 VLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,col_index_num,range_lookup)
 But it still returns an unwanted #N/A.Any change made to the formula will continually retrieve an error.
You need to change your frontend-only mindset. There are somany things to check at the lookup list first
, let’s see…
 Is the index column you are looking the left one?Is the index column free of duplicates?Is the index column entries free of leading, trailing spaces?Is the index column sorted ascending (for approximate match)
And other checks…
