    Have you done any vids where you use if and vlookup to subtract one cell from another such as dr – cr as at the mo I have dr – cr = x and then I vlookup that into another schedule but it would be good if I could have everything in one formula.  I have just struggled to find anything in this area.

    a side note I want to share is that, you can do iferror(vlookup(xxxxx), " ") to remove the NA error message.

    what if you have repeating numbers i your sales or goals column. Will you be able to sill use the if or vlookup conditions. I'm asking because i have a similar situation as this video however, i have some repeating numbers, and sometimes when i use the look up function that I'm trying to get picked up, another number in my table picks up another number with similar number in one column but a different number in the other column
