    In Excel, how can I get the row number of the cell that was correctly matched in a Vlookup formula? For instance, if my data in A1:A3 is:

    Apple
    Banana
    Cherry

    And I have a Vlookup, =Vlookup("Banana",A1:A3,1,false), this returns Banana but I would like to be able to return the row number in which it was found, 2.
