vlookup multiple sheets

Explanation:

The trick is to write Sheet2!A1:B200 instead of just A1:B200. Sheet2! is the information that you analyze data from the sheet which name is Sheet2.

 

Example:

Lookup value is in A1 cell. You analyze data in Example_Sheet in A1:B10 table array. Number of column is 2. You want to exact match. Your formula is:

=VLOOKUP(A1,Example_Sheet!A1:B10,2,FALSE)
