MATCH is probably best for comparison, but VLOOKUP can do it, too. Whichever you pick, you'll need a wild card. The wildcard is added before and after the lookup value so MATCH or VLOOKUP will locate the "pc1" anywhere in the string.

 

MATCH:

=MATCH("*"&A1&"*",Sheet2!$A$1:$A$2,0)

VLOOKUP:

=VLOOKUP("*"&A1&"*",Sheet2!$A$1:$A$2,1,0)

 

MATCH formula showing return 1,2 results. But vlookup working fine. What i except.
