How to do a case sensitive vlookup in Excel?
Normally, when you use the vlookup function to return the corresponding value of a specific data, the result does not recognize the case sensitive of the text value, and this will make you crazy if there are multiple text value needed to be identify the case sensitive. But here, I can talk about a useful formula to help you solve this task.
Supposing I have the following data range which ID column contains text string with upper case or lower case, and now, I want to return the corresponding name of the given ID number, see following screenshot:
Type this formula into your specified cell: =INDEX(B2:B11,MATCH(TRUE,EXACT(D2,A2:A11),0)), and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys simultaneously, then you will get the correct result you need. See screenshot:
In the above formula:
- A2:A11 is the column that you want to look up in;
- D2 is the lookup value;
- B2:B11 is the column which the result will be returned.
