Vlookup return value in adjacent cell in Excel

For example, you have two columns as shown in following screenshot. To vlookup the largest weight in column A and return the adjacent cell value of column B, please do as follows.

1. Select a blank cell (here I select cell C3), copy and paste the formula =VLOOKUP(MAX(A2:A11), A2:B11, 2, FALSE) into the Formula Bar, and then press the Enter key. See screenshot:

Then the adjacent cell value of the largest weight in column A is populated in the selected cell.

Besides, you can vlookup and get the adjacent cell value based on a cell reference.

For example, the referenced cell is C2 which locates value 365, for vlookup this value and return the value in adjacent cell. You just need to change the above formula to =VLOOKUP(C2, A2:B11, 2, FALSE), and then press the Enter key. See screenshot:

This Index function also works: =INDEX($B$1:$B$7, SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH($C$2, $A$1:$A$7)), MATCH(ROW($A$1:$A$7), ROW($A$1:$A$7))), ROW(A1))) + Ctrl + Shift + Enter.

Besides returning value in an adjacent cell, you can vlookup and return value in the next cell of the adjacent cell in Excel. See screenshot:

Then you can see the value in next cell is populated into the selected cell.

Note: 680 in the formula is the value which I vlookup in this case, you can change it as you want.
