i am having a list material codes and for each material code more than 2 suppliers are there
each will supply material in different dates .
i need the corresponding receipt date by comparing material code & supplier code for a list of material codes.
in vlookup v have the option compare one filed. but i need 4 2 fields.

I am not giving you a solution because I do not know your sheets. But I am telling you here how to go about it (famous adage: do not give fish but teach him fishing)

It is possible to do vlookup for two values
do this experiment

type in shseet1 from A1 C3 following data

a s venkat
a d ram
a f well

go to sheet 2
A1 ---a
B1 ---d
in C1 copy this formula

=INDEX(Sheet1!C1:C3,MATCH(1,((Sheet1!A1:A3=A1)*(Sheet1!B1:B3=B1)),1))

INVOKE THIS FORMULA WITH CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER as this is an array formula

you will get in C1 the value "ram"

this may give you idea how to go about it.
Hi venkat,

its not working.. i wnna do it for list of cells. it just give for single cell if v drag then it give irrelevant values.

i will give u ex.

your sheet1 is like this from A1 to c8

a 1 ram
a 2 ravi
a 4 anand
a 5 hi
c 9 hello
c 0 v1
b 5 vyu
d 5 du

your sheet 2 is like this from A1 to B4

a 5
a 1
b 5
c 0

in sheet 2 in C1 copy this formula ( I have slightly changed the macro for dynamic conditions)

=INDEX(Sheet1!\$C\$1:\$C\$100,MATCH(1,((Sheet1!\$A\$1:\$A\$100=A1)*(Sheet1!\$B\$1:\$B\$100=B1)),0))
not dollar signs (maximum of 100 rows;. if more modify )

INVOKE THIS FORMULA BY CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER
copy C1 to C2,C3 down.

you will get sheet 2 like this

a 5 hi
a 1 ram
b 5 vyu
c 0 v1

now do you get the hang of it.
HI VENKAT

Thanks ... its working.
but still some values are not matching give not available
if we gives in random order
i.e in sheet 1

A 1 ff
A 2 dd
D 3 ff
A 4 gg
B 3 hh
A 6 jj
C 1 rty
D 4 hjk
F 5 ghjk
F 6 fghj

second sheet

A 6 jj
D 3 ff
A 2 #N/A
A 1 ff

---

I do not know whether you have solved the problem

this has nothing to do with random or non random order. how did you get A 2 as not available (#N/A).
in my computer it is --------------dd

of course my version is excel 2002. still it should work in a future version. see whetehr there are any typo in sheet 2
when you type A and 2 are there any extra space. delete A and 2 and retype again. and get the formula.
Hi Venkat
