    Jeff – You are an amazing teacher and I am so fortunate to have found you through a CPA event years ago. This post is a saved post to remind me about the match and other lookup techniques — as I await Xlookup on my version of Excel.

    Thanks for the teaching and CPE needed for my Illinois license.

    All the best,
