Vlookup issue : When column are added to

I have successfully applied a Vlookup from reference sheet to my parent sheet. However, when a new column is added within that range in reference sheet then input value also changes and it doesn't remain static.

Is there a way to apply same logic like Excel with $ sign to make the Reference value/Reference column static.

    Hi @Kanishk Khera

    I hope you're well and safe!

    I'd recommend using INDEX/MATCH instead because it's not affected when you add/move/delete columns.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
