Convert zip codes to US state names with formula

Please follow below steps to convert zip codes to US state names in Excel:

1. First, prepare the zip codes and US state names table in a worksheet.

In my case, I copy the zip codes and US state names from below webpage, and then paste into a new worksheet.

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).
