HLOOKUP Function

The HLOOKUP function is one of the lookup and reference functions. It is used to perform the horizontal search for a value in the top row of a table or an array and return the value in the same column based on a specified row index number.


HLOOKUP (lookup_value, table_array, row_index_num, [range_lookup])

The HLOOKUP function has the following arguments:

Argument Description
lookup_value A value to search for.
table_array Two or more rows containing data sorted in ascending order.
row_index_num A row number in the same column of the table_array, a numeric value greater than or equal to 1 but less than the number of rows in the table_array.
range_lookup An optional argument. It is a logical value: TRUE or FALSE. Enter FALSE to find an exact match. Enter TRUE to find an approximate match, in this case if there is not a value that strictly matches the lookup_value, then the function will choose the next largest value less than the lookup_value. If this argument is absent, the function will find an approximate match.


If the range_lookup is set to FALSE, but no exact match is found, then the function will return the #N/A error.
