# Add Nested ISNA & VLOOKUP With Wildcard Via Macro Code

Aug 23, 2008
I have the following vlookup working exactly as I want it to in excel: =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(LEFT(C2,10)& "*", NAME,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(LEFT(C2,10)& "*",NAME,2,FALSE))) -NAME is a defined section on another worksheet

The problem I have is when I come to use this within a vba macro I'm writing the wildcard section automatically gets spaces added so it goes from "*" to " * " and excel doesn't like it! The code I'm using to write it into the cell is simply:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _

"=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(LEFT(c2,10)& " * ",NAME,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(LEFT(c2,10)& " * ",NAME,2,FALSE)))"

how to stop the spaces being added?

I use the following formula. It works except it returns "0" if the field is blank. What alternate formula can I use that will return blank instead of zero if the field is blank?

=IF(B3="","",IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B3,Customers!$A$2:$L$1502,5,FALSE)),IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(VALUE(B3),Customers!$A$2:$L$1502,5,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(VALUE(B3),Customers!$A$2:$L$1502,5,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(B3,Customers!$A$2:$L$1502,5,FALSE)))

I'm trying to get data from another tab, but only if it is greater than or less than a certain number. Here's what I'm using but doesn't seem to work.

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A13, 'Aim MTD'!A2:T63, 5, FALSE)),">=22.00%",VLOOKUP(A13, 'Aim MTD'!A2:T63, 5, FALSE))

A13 is targeting the name of the person

Aim MTD is the sheet tab the info is in

And I want to select the information only if the cell value is 22% or greater. If the cell value is less than 22%, I don't want it to read or to read zero. I'm not an excel expert (yet), but hope to be one day!

I'm trying to use this formula but I get the error "too many arguments". How can I do the same as the formula without an error:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B12,GYROLOK316ANDM!A12:E2000,3,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(B12,GYROLOKBR!A12:E2000,3,FALSE), VLOOKUP(B12,VALVESFILTERS!A12:E2000,3,FALSE),VLOOKUP(B12,GYROLOK316ANDM!A12:E2000,3,FALSE))

I added in the VLOOKUP(B12,VALVESFILTERS!A12:E2000,3,FALSE) - when I used it without that it worked. But I have 3 sheets I need the the VLOOKUP to look over and this formula that I copied off another thread only had 2 tabs.

I have been using an IF,ISNA,VLOOKUP formula as follows which I am sure you are all familiar with :

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(K7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0)),"",VLOOKUP(K7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0))

This formula works correctly, displaying the lookup value for K7. My query is between the"" I can place text to display when K7 is blank and this works correctly too. However I would like to place a formula in here. The formula is VLOOKUP(I7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0 i.e. the lookup value is now I7 and not K7 when K7 is blank.

I have tried the following and variations based on what I know but they return errors.

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(K7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0)),(""& VLOOKUP(K7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0),VLOOKUP(K7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0))

Any better way of using I7 as the lookup value when K7 is blank.

It then places all the data on a new sheet. My problem is that some of the formula that the macro places on the new sheet come back with the result #N/A - which is fine, as they are the result of a lookup.

What I want to try and do, is at the end of the macro, get it to delete the row if the activecell is showing as #N/A

I've tried to write a small bit of code for it...

I need to lookup data from four different columns to match a value in another sheet. The lookup value has to start with "4" in order for it to be the correct match. I've tried the following formula for just two columns:

=IF(VLOOKUP($C2,'Sheet 1'!$D$2:$H$10000,5,FALSE)="4*",VLOOKUP($C2,'Sheet 1'!$D$2:$H$10000,5,FALSE),IF(VLOOKUP($C2,'Sheet 2'!$E$2:$G$10000,3,FALSE)="4*", VLOOKUP($C2,'Sheet 2'!$E$2:$G$10000,3,FALSE),"False"))

The problem I have is that the wildcard function isn't working in my If statement (apparentley that's how Excel was designed). The first vlookup returns the value "40042565" but Excel doesn't show it matching the criteria with the wildcard ("4*").

Any way to lookup the value in C2, search through multiple columns, and return the value that starts with "4"?

I would like to Vlookup an association of data in a matrix where not all information is available. e.g:

Vlookup of following data (concatenate):

A1&B1&C1&D1

A2&B2&C2&D2

A3&B3&C3&D3

but in the mapping I would have a wild card (*) in certain columns (not always the same column)

The concatenate would be for exemple:

A1&*&C1&D1

A2&B2&*&D2

*&B3&C3&*

I know it works on the other way around (Vlookup of concatenate with wilrdcards) but I can not have wildcards in my source data.

picture this.

Cell A1 = xyz3

Cell B1 = 5

Cell C1 = xyz3-hgfe-56f

I need to do a vlookup on C1 in range A1:B1 that will return B1 if C1 contains the string in A1. I've tried using the TRUE variable in the vlookup formula which does not require an exact match. This works for about 80% of my data but is not 100% accurate. Of course I've got a long list of data ... not just the 3 cells.

get the name of the File in a Vlookup VBA using wildcard characters. I have to do a VLOOKUP from a specific file which is stored in the same folder as the file in which I need to get this VLOOKUP done, however the name can change anytime keep a word common only for this specific file...

Ex:

I have a File called "Mapping as on 8th May" from where i need to lookup some information for my file and I intend to do this using VLOOKUP in VBA in a Module but since the name can change to anything such as"Mapping as on 16th May" I cant use it in the VBA code, so is there a way around this where If I have this file stored in the same folder then I keep the word "Mapping" specific and unique for all other files in the same folder that the search can pull this file name to be further used in my lookup..

how to use the wildcards in VLOOKUP lookup range for the file name as the columns are going to remain the same...

know if I can use a wildcard on R1C1 notation for my "lookup value" in my Vlookup, so that the Vlookup searches for a not exact match, but on the whole contents of the cell, not just the first several letters? I am using VBA, and the vlookup is in each cell of a for next loop, so I cannot use an actual cell reference which is where I've usually seen, and used wildcards. I've tried changing the Vlookup to have the lookup value be "Cells(n,2)" instead of "RC[-2]" to no avail. I need to make the vlookup evaluate all the words in cell "RC[-2]" prior to returning the value I specified, because otherwise it returns the wrong value even though I sorted my lookup table Column A A to Z.

I have configured conditional formatting to check valid entries in a dependant list. I used the solution provided by SHG at:

http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...ant-lists.html

Now I need to use a macro to activate and deactivate the conditional formatting due to performance issues.

When the formula for data validation includes the indirect funtion I got a compile error and the macro won't run.

I have a sheet with Names in it. I need to look those names up and find which org they belong to. The problem is the the names have many characters after them, and many names belong to a few orgs, with a the rest belonging to many orgs. (See below)

I have been trying to get a Vlookup to work, but since it can't go left, it won't look up the orgs that don't own at least three names. And I can't get the search to work on the names.

Names:

I’m trying to develop a workbook which holds monthly data on loan information. It tracks the interest and balance on the loan. I want the first page to have a table displaying the interest payments for every individual tab. When I was brainstorming the idea, I was considering a sort of Vlookup function to find the tab the account is on and then a further function, possibly another vlookup which connects the month to that month’s interest payment. Can anyone help me figure this out?

The attached spreadsheet is obviously simplified, there are well over 30 tabs. But I would like it to, ideally, search the account number column, search the workbook for that account number, and then when on that page use the month at the top of the first page and retrieve the interest payment and put it back in the cell. It’d also be great if the formula can be transferred between workbooks. I’m not sure if that makes sense; basically if I were to copy that worksheet into the next months book, I would like that the formula read those tabs instead of becoming obsolete due to references from the first workbook.

I am trying to run a routine in VBA that will Search for a Part-No. that normally contains asterisks. It is giving me bad positive Search results due to the coding looking at the (*) asterisk's as a wildcard character.

The following Part-No.'s are located in cells (C11:C16):

9L3Z*17757*BCP

6C3Z*16138*AACP

AE5Z*16138*B

AE5Z*17E811*CF

AE5Z*17E811*F

AE5Z*17E810*F

Part-No. to be Searched for:

AE5Z*17E811*F

When the below code is run, the incorrect Part-No. 'AE5Z*17E811*CF' is found in cell (C14) rather than the correct Part-No. found in Cell (C15).

Code:

'The following 2 lines are defaulted for ease of coding

pNumb = "AE5Z*17E811*F"

Range("C11", "C16").Select

convert this formula to VBA.

The are four formulas in there:

1. lookup formula.

2. remove the 1st number (exmaple: remove 0 in 0123 to become 123)

3. add a number (example: add 0 to 123 to become 0123)

4. convert a number into text format.

I'm trying to build this formula and I'm only half way through it and it already isn't working.

Column D - can be 1, 2, 3, or 4

Column E - can be any number

If column D is 1 or 3, then the VLOOKUP should look up column E and point to the answer in column 4 on another worksheet (Companies in this case). If column D is 2 or 5, then the VLOOKUP should look up column E and point to the answer in column 5 on another worksheet (Companies in this case). This is what I have so far, just trying to get it to recognize if it is a 1 or 2:

=IF(OR(D2=1,VLOOKUP(E2,Companies!A:G,4)),IF(D2=2,VLOOKUP(E2,Companies!A:G,5)))

What is making this not work? I'm getting a false. But before I added the OR, it worked for the D2=1.

Is it possible to Call the inbuilt Excel Functions (like VLOOKUP) in Macros. we have to pouplate cells with formula which uses VLOOKUP. one way was to update each cell with required Formula like: [code] Range("A1").value = " = 6*F7*(1-Vlookup(lookupvalue........))"[code] but this was stupid as no of cell to be populated was large and variable and moreover it will return formulae to cells rather than fixed value. What we tried was to defile an table_array as Array(x y) and then use this array to return required VLOOKUP value. However I was thinking is there any way to call function like VLOOKUP in Macros so that we can return a value to cell rather than formula.

Objective: To find out which customers order certain items and which customers dont order certain items. Many customers may order the same item eg customer A, B, C, D all order item "4567"

I have 2 worksheets.

Worksheet 1: Showing 30 item codes, item description and customers. Items in col A (A2:A31), description in col B (B2:B31) runnning down vertically. Customer name in cell 1 of all other columns running across horizontally, eg C1, D1, E1.... (C1:GF1). There are 186 customers. (A formula needs to start at C3 and dragged to GF3)

Worksheet 2: Raw data showing customers in column A and items in column B, There are 3,753 rows. Customer in column A are duplicated as the same customer may order a number of items so for eg

ABC PTY LTD 5671

ABC PTY LTD 5683

ABC PTY LTD 5692

ABC PTY LTD 5610

ABC PTY LTD 5611

Tried the below formula

=if(C1='S2'!A2),=if('S1'!A2='S2'!B2),"ordered","")

Hi guys, hopefully you can shed some light onto this small problem I am having.

The current formula I'm trying to use is:

=IF(VLOOKUP(A4,EPG1!D4:AN26,6,FALSE),COUNTIF(PASS,""))+IF(VLOOKUP(A4,EPG1!D4:AN26,6,FALSE),COUNTIF(F AIL,""))

This isn't producing the desired results.

What I am trying to do in words is this:

IF... in this array it equals A4 then look at coloum 6 and then Countif col 6 says Pass and then add another if it says Fail....

What I am then trying to do for cell B2 is create a vlookup and nested if statement that says if b1 is a number lookup the value in column D and return the value in colunm E and if b1 doesn't = a number, ie 'none' then return a null value. The same goes for B3 where if b1 is a number lookup the value in column D and return the value in columm F and if b1 doesn't = a number, ie 'none' then return a null value.dropdown list problem.

I would like to develop a user-friendly Excel 2010 spreadsheet that would allow the user to enter from 1 to 10 (i just picked this number at random just to have an upper limit) employee numbers in cells A1-A10 and "click" on the VBA Code button that would invoke an Access Query and in the process return all the applicable data gathered from the query back into the Excel Spreadsheet. Believe it or not, I can do all this mentioned so far. BUT what i cant do is my second option for the user which is allow them to pull ALL of the employees back into the spreadsheet using the same query.

In summary, using Excel as a frontend dashboard, I know how to get a specific number of employees' information from a query and I know how to get all employees' information from a query but I dont know how to get either/or. In other words, I could do this with two queries and two "VBA-Code" buttons but I would like to do it with one query and one button.

I have the following formula:

=IF(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #1'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)<(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)-((VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)*0.03))),'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!A3,IF(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #1'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)>(VLOOKUP('CORE Data 3 Month #2'!$A:$K,6,FALSE))+((VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!$A:$K,6,FALSE)*0.03)),'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!C3,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!B3))

The strangest thing is happen. The part of formula underlined and the part bolded are identifical. For some reason, excel is unable to find the value in the underlined portion but is able to find the value in the bolded portion. As a result, I'm getting a #N/A result. how this can be corrected?
