I want to use vlookup to find a certain value and I already have this formula. The thing is, now what formula do I need to use to get the location of the above value which I have in the vlookup formula?

By location I mean the cell location, such as A5 or B7.

You probably want to use the MATCH() function instead. It will return the relative position of an item in an array which you can then provide as input for the INDEX() function.
