Mike and Bill Debate: “=LOOKUP vs. @LOOKUP”

Going back to “VLOOKUP WEEK 2012” Mike ‘ExcelisFun’ Girvin and Bill ‘MrExcel’ Jelen look at the ‘LOOKUP’ Function. Taking cues from an email Bill received from Dan Bricklin [co-founder/inventor of VisiCalc] Bill argues the point that “=LOOKUP” is ambiguous in Microsoft Excel when the Data Set Table is ‘square’. Mike, on the other hand, thinks that “=LOOKUP” is not an ambiguous Function in that scenario; that it is intuitive and dynamic. Follow along with Episode #1550 to hear the debate and decide for yourself.
