Hi! Is it possible to use this lookup across multiple WORKBOOKS?

Hi Abdul Daim,

Our feature does not support finding values across multiple workbooks.
If you want to lookup values from different workbooks, the second method in this tutorial may do you a favor: Lookup values from another worksheet or workbook
