I have a spreadsheet where I do a lot of VLOOKUPs using both direct and indirect
referencing of criteria. On occasion, VLOOKUP goes nuts and refuses to find a valid
entry. Worse, at other times it picks up the entry from a totally different row.

This problem would occasionally happen in 1.1.3. In 2.0, it is happening a LOT.
What the hell is going on?

If you want to lookup the exact value set the optional fourth parameter to FALSE or zero.
