#### Convert zip codes to US state names with formula

2. Select a blank cell, enter below formula, and press the Enter key.

=LOOKUP(2,1/(\$D\$3:\$D\$75<=H3)/(\$E\$3:\$E\$75>=H3),\$B\$3:\$B\$75)

Note: In above formula,

• \$D\$3:\$D\$75 is the Zip Min column in the zip codes and US state names table I copied from the webpage.
• \$E\$3:\$E\$75 is the Zip Max column in the zip codes and US state names table.
• H3 is the specified zip code you will convert to state name.
• \$B\$3:\$B\$75 is the State Name column in the zip codes and US state names table. If you need to convert zip code to state abbreviations, you can change it to \$C\$3:\$C\$75 (the ST column in the table).
