This is an example of expanding VLOOKUP( ) with functions, and it is a skill you need to become very comfortable with performing. This is the creative element of modeling that you will use to find solutions to problems. Note that when using VLOOKUPs, moderation is imperative. VLOOKUPs are processor-intensive, and while they are not volatile, they can affect the performance of your computer. Creating several VLOOKUPs that work from large tables (that is, more than 1,000 rows) is just asking for trouble.

While this may be partially right in that we now understand errors, but there has been little change in the number of errors that have entered into models. In fact, this situation has increased as more people rely on Excel spreadsheets. So, how does all this apply to the financial modeler? Well, we have established that errors will occur. The issue, however, is not that errors occurring, but how they are then treated. Dealing with errors is a fundamental part of financial modeling. The more complex and larger the model, the more likely it is that some of those errors will not be caught.

Every study that has attempted to measure errors, without exception, has found them at rates that would be unacceptable in any organization. These error rates, furthermore, are completely consistent with error rates found in other human activities. With such high cell error rates, most large spreadsheets will have multiple errors, and even relatively small ‘scratch pad’ spreadsheets will have a significant probability of error. Despite the evidence, individual developers and organizations appear to be in a state of denial.
