Want to assign a value to a data item with a VLookUp?

Say you want to assign a value to a data item with a VLookUp. The data item is a number that will be in a range, like a score of 87 on a test earning a B where the range was from 81-90.

Use a VLookUp without a Range-Lookup value. First create your lookup table with the lowest end of the range for each one, so if 61-70 was a D, 71-80 a C, 81-90 a B and 91+ an A, column 1 of your table would be 0, 61, 71, 81, 91, with the next column, F, D, C, B, A, respectively. If your grade were in D1 and your table in A1:B5, your VLookUp would read =VLookUp(D1,$A$1:$B$5,2).
