formula should be

 Code: =VLOOKUP(B2;Sheet1.A1:D87;4;1)

if this has answered your question please add "[Solved]" to the beginning of your first post title (edit button), that would save the busy people from looking in and perhaps interest learners like myself who are always looking for answers .

Sheet1 column B is the lookup column, not column A, so try...
 Code: =VLOOKUP(B2;\$Sheet1.\$B\$1:\$D\$87;3;0)

@Ken, but in earlier versions it was not like this. we could define any range and look the values.

I don't think you're correct there.
How would these earlier versions of VLOOKUP know which column to lookup when searching the table?
I have only ever known VLOOKUP tables to have the searched column being the table's left-most column.
