      Humor me with a scenario where you have customer names and you must lookup some corresponding data. Obviously you plan to use VLOOKUP for this. But the lookup table has other plans. Instead of customer name, the lookup table has firstname-initial_of_lastname.  So for Bill Gates, the lookup table lists the name as Bill-G.


      Of course, you can write a complex VLOOKUP. But why bother? Use Flash Fill to do the dirty work for you.
