How to lookup a value with VLOOKUP()

The vlookup formula works by looking for the lookup_value in extreme left column. The second argument it takes is lookup_table, the third argument provides column to get the values from, here the MATCH() function can be replaced by a integer, but this MATCH() function makes more flexible to use. The last argument is used to get an exact match.
