Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My MS Excel vlookup function ASCII type table contains both upper case and lower case letters, characters like ( and % or *, and numbers. It seems to return the numerical equivalent of upper case letters only, not the lower case, and fails on numbers, returning #N/A. The upper case letters and most of the other characters work properly.

  1. Optionally, click the cell that displays the error, click the button that appears ooui1_za06043871.gif, and then click Show Calculation Steps if it appears. \015\012
  2. Review the following possible causes and solutions. \015\012\015\012blueup_clv.gifMissing data, and #N/A or NA() has been entered in its place
    \015\012\015\012Replace #N/A with new data.
    \015\012 Note You can enter #N/A in those cells where data is not yet available. Formulas that refer to those cells will then return #N/A instead of attempting to calculate a value.
    \015\012\015\012blueup_clv.gifGiving an inappropriate value for the lookup_value argument in the HLOOKUP, LOOKUP, MATCH, or VLOOKUP worksheet function
    \015\012Make sure that the lookup_value argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) is the correct type of value — for example, a value or a cell reference, but not a range reference.\015\012\015\012blueup_clv.gifUsing the VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, or MATCH worksheet function to locate a value in an unsorted table
    \015\012By default, functions that look up information in tables must be sorted in ascending order. However, the VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP worksheet functions contain a range_lookup argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) that instructs the function to find an exact match even if the table is not sorted. To find an exact match, set the range_lookup argument to FALSE. \015\012The MATCH worksheet function contains a match_type argument that specifies the order the list must be sorted in to find a match. If the function cannot find a match, try changing the match_type argument. To find an exact match, set the match_type argument to 0.
    \015\012\015\012blueup_clv.gifUsing an argument in an array formula that is not the same number of rows or columns as the range that contains the array formula
    \015\012\015\012If the array formula (array formula: A formula that performs multiple calculations on one or more sets of values, and then returns either a single result or multiple results. Array formulas are enclosed between braces { } and are entered by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.) has been entered into multiple cells, make sure that the ranges referenced by the formula have the same number of rows and columns, or enter the array formula into fewer cells. For example, if the array formula has been entered into a range 15 rows high (C1:C15) and the formula refers to a range 10 rows high (A1:A10), the range C11:C15 will display #N/A. To correct this error, enter the formula into a smaller range (for example, C1:C10), or change the range to which the formula refers to the same number of rows (for example, A1:A15).
    \015\012\015\012blueup_clv.gifOmitting one or more required arguments from a built-in or custom worksheet function
    \015\012\015\012Enter all arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function.
    \015\012\015\012blueup_clv.gifUsing a custom worksheet function that is not available
    \015\012\015\012Make sure that the workbook that contains the worksheet function is open and the function is working properly.
    \015\012\015\012blueup_clv.gifRunning a macro that enters a function that returns #N/A
    \015\012\015\012Make sure that the arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function are correct and in the correct position.

Hi! I have a Sony Vaio VGN FW250j. The laptop worked just fine one day then the next, I noticed that certain keys (1,2,Q,W,S,Z)would not type in the certain characters when needed. The only time these keys input the correct character is when you have to pound the key until the letter or number pop up. Nothing has been spilled on it nor has the laptop ever been dropped. It is always kept in the case and is cleaned on a regular basis for dust....... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!
