Dear Sir,

Please help me in filling the data in h, i, j , k , l, m column automatcially ignoring #N/A as shown in the image.


The technique for doing a multiple-result VLOOKUP is in my book (which you should get!) called "This isn't Excel, it's Magic" -- it's easier to show than explain, so please send me your email address and I'll send you a sample file -- use subject of "AllExpertsQ" and briefly redescribe what needs doing.
