How to use HLOOKUP in Excel

We will take an example to understand this in a better way. As we see in the below table we have data for student’s marks achieved in different subject. Now if I wanted to fetch data for a particular student for a particular subject then we will use HLOOKUP to get it. Here we took Steve as look_up value and will try to get data from the table(table_array) for the subject Botany which is 5 rows( row_index_num) below the names of students. Finally we will get value as 76.
