Excel 2007 VBA VLookup function

excelvbavlookup

I have put together code to use vlookup using vba in excel. However, I am receiving an error indicating "Unable to get the VLOOKUP property of the WorkSheet Function class". "CustomerNumberList" is a two column range. I believe my issue is using the VLookup function. I am using "Offset" as an indicator of where I want VLookup to start looking in the sheet, in this case .Find "cust_num"(y+1, 0). How do I indicate what column I want VLookup to enter company name? Currently my module has a Select Case function that works in getting the company names in each cell, but I am dealing with thousands of lines so it can take 20 minutes to run. I am hoping this way is faster. Would someone be able to assist?

Sample Excel Sheets:
