In this tutorial we will learn about **how to know the Assessee status from Pan Card using Excel** Formulas with the help of an example given below:

Now here I have a table along with the Pan Card Numbers given in each row and, along with that, there is a table named as 4th Character along with their short forms.

So now, How can I know the Assesses (4th Character) from Pan Card using Excel from the table?

**Note –** The Fourth Character in the Pan Number indicates whether you are a company, person, Body of Individuals or Government Entity

To know the Assesses status from Pan Card using Excel we will be applying 2 steps

**Step 1. MID Formula**

**Step 2. VLOOKUP Formula**

**Step 1. MID Formula**

1. Press **=MID** and open the bracket **=MID(**

Now here there are 3 parameters **(text, start_num , num_chars).**

The first parameter text means **text** from which you want to extract the substring.

2. Choose the cell where the **Pan Number is written** and press comma (,) **=MID(E4,**

The second parameter **start_num** means the starting position from which you want to execute your data

3. So write **4** and press comma **=MID(E4,4,**

The third parameter **num_chars** means the number of characters which you want to execute from your data

4. So write 1 as a character which you want to execute and close the bracket **=MID(E4,4,1)**

5. Press **Enter**

6. Copy the **Pan** Number and drag it to the **bottom** of the table

Now the 4th Character is been executed from the Pan Card Number so the next step is to apply VLOOKUP Formula

**Step 2: VLOOKUP Formula**

1. Press **=VLOOKUP** and open the bracket **=VLOOKUP(**

Now there are 4 parameters **(lookup_value, table_array, col_index_num , [range_lookup]).**

The first parameter **lookup_value** means the value to search for in the first column of the table.

2. Choose the **4th Character cell** which is executed from the **MID** Formula **=VLOOKUP(F4,**

The second parameter **Table_array** means two or more columns of data which is sorted in ascending order.

3. Select the entire **4th Character Table** and press **F4** Key **=VLOOKUP(F4, $B$4:$C$13,**

The third parameter **col_index_num** means column number in table from which the matching value must be returned

4. Then press **2** as column number **=VLOOKUP(F4, $B$4:$C$13,2**

The fourth character **[range_lookup]** means TRUE or FALSE for a match

5. So write **0 or FALSE** for exact match and close the bracket **=VLOOKUP(F4, $B$4:$C$13,2,0)**

6. Press **Enter **

7. Copy the **formula** and drag it to the **bottom** of the table and you will see the **Assesses** in the Pan Card Number

You can also apply the **MID Formula inside the VLOOKUP Formula**. So follow the steps given below to do it:

1. Copy the **MID Formula** without equal to (=) sign

2. Go to **VLOOKUP Formula** and replace the **lookup_value parameter to MID Formula**

4. Press **Enter** and you will see a **single consolidated formula** which tells you how to know the Assesses status from Pan Card
