VLOOKUP() returning incorrect value
Using = VLOOKUP( "Salary",$A$1:B4, 2 ) to preform a search on this data:

Long Term
IRA Contribution-130
Yields: -130
Expected Value: 1000

Anyone else have a similar issue?
I need it to perform as Excel would, if you take the same data, same equation, different results. I don't want them to be sorted because they are in chronological order. I need the last instance of Salary that was introduced.
