    Excel: I have a Pivot table on Sheet1 and a simple table on Sheet2

    I'm trying to 'partial match' vlookup from a pivot table as follows:

    Sheet1 1
    Pivot contains company name with ID number for row data and sales totals from Jan-Dec with Grand Total for column data. First 9 characters of name field are ID - then company name (ie 101236 - ABC Company)

    Sheet 2
    Table has Company Name only - therefore not an exact match - I can't change either so must do a partial match - is this possible?

    Without wildcard it results in #N/A
    Also tried with GETPIVOTDATA and result is #REF

    Here is my formula

    =VLOOKUP([@Supplier]&"*",SALES,15,FALSE)
