    Respected All,

    My doubt regarding vlookup function I just want match 2 cell. Both cell contain numeric cells. When I vlookup both cell showing Not applicable error. When I check both cell with "Is number " function one cell showing True & other cell showing False. I think one cell may be contain text format. Can I know any solution to change text formula to number formula. Please help me.

    do a text to columns - that will change the text number to a real number
    also try a formula in another cell - cell + 1
    can you attach a sample sheet
