The Exact Match Lookup

The existing exact match formulaE only use =VLOOKUP

In merged cell C21, create an =VLOOKUP formula to lookup the book Status.  Include a nested MATCH function instead of the column reference number.

You may want to create some extra range names to use in your new formula.

Change the Book ISBN code in merged cell B18 to 978-1-40020-96298-02-1 to check that your lookup formula works:


The new lookup formula containing =MATCH is more robust.
