How to Use the IF Function and the VLOOKUP Function Together In Excel

The Vlookup function is an awesome function. It looks up information in a table where you have defined the lookup value in the left-most column of the table. In this video I share how to use it with an IF function after determining whether an individual has made their sales goal to determine their commission check.

Practice with my training file here. Also you might be interested in using the Match and Index functions as an alternative to the Vlookup if you have a large list of table columns.

    Hello, I am having trouble using the vlookup and if functions together. Would it be possible to send you the file too look at? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Sure, my email is stevechase@live.com. The only thing is that I do not accept corporate private data and that the example would need to be generic in that a solution could be posted online in this blog. I generally like to use OneDrive public folders to share the solution files with the readers.
