Lookup, Down, and Sideways

A very useful Excel feature

Excel does not have "relational" tables like database applications such as Access.

You, however, can make use of database functions including the ability to look up values in a table based on a value.

You could, for instance look up a salesperson's records based on an employee ID.

Using VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, INDEX, and MATCH in Excel to interrogate data tables

John Walkenbach has a book "Excel 2003 Formulas" with a 24-page chapter on Lookup functions and other database/list tricks.

Chip Pearson talks about lookups on his site as well..
