Open the file contained within the folder name shown above.  We want to display the rating for each curry:

Using Lookup Tables for Text messages

The curries are rated from Very Mild to a worrying Health Warning!.

In cell C4, create an =VLOOKUP formula that displays the rating message for each curry.

Use the chilli rating table in column E and F as your lookup table.  If you create a range name you will be able to use this in your formula:

=VLOOKUP (Lookup cell, Table Range, Column ref)

Change the Very mild rating to 1140 and the highest rating of 20 to 18 to check that your formula works:
