In Excel, you can apply the MATCH function to return the number of the row where the specified value is found. Please do as this:

For example, I have a range of data as following screenshot shown, I want to find the row number which ID is AA1005:

doc-vlookup-row-number-1

You can apply this formula, please enter it into a cell where you need: =MATCH(E1,A1:A10,0), and then press Enter key to get the row number you need, see screenshot:

doc-vlookup-row-number-1

Notes:

1. In the above formula, E1 is the value that we want to look for its row number, and A1:A10 is the range of cells where we want to search.

2. You should notice that the above formula returns a relative reference, not an absolute reference to the worksheet cell. In this example, if you change your search range to A2:A10, the row number will be 6.

3. To return an absolute row, you can use the ROW and MATCH functions to deal with it, please apply this formula: =MATCH(E1,A1:A10,0)+ROW(A1:A10)-1, see screenshot:
