# Add Two Matching Values Using Vlookup

Sep 17, 2009

How can i add a value suppose 10 which is in cell A2, now i use vlookup to search
lookup_value=A2(i.e.10),
Table_array=column c,
Column_index_number=1 and
range_lookup=0

so when vlookup finds the matching value the sum should be 10+10=20
also it should match -10, so that sum will be 0.

## Vlookup (matching Phrases For Values)

Jul 5, 2007

I am doing a project where I have two lists, one list is much larger than the other but has more info. I need some of that info for my other list, so I have used vlookup, but it hasn't helped.

The formula that I am using is
=VLOOKUP(B2,[Report.htm]report1183662451726!\$A:\$B,2,FALSE)

now the value I am searching for is "ANOS" which I know is in the search column, but the answer when I search is #NA. When I take out false the right value will fill in fro "ANOS", but if two words are similar such as "ALLN" and "ALEX" then it will give the same values for both which isn't right.

## Vlookup Of Partial Matching Values

May 6, 2007

I have a worksheet with 2 tabs. Tab 1 has data in two columns, column A contains a part number (6 characters long) and column B contains a value for each part number.

Tab 2 is a sheet with multiple colums of data. I need tab 2 to look at the data in tab 1 and display the value of each part number in a specific column that has corresponding part numbers but are 15 characters in length. The part numbers in tab 1 are the last 6 characters of the part numbers in tab 2.

I have been trying to use vlookup in tab 2 but it won't work because the column of part numbers in tab 2 is a full part number and the part numbers in tab 1 are only a partial part number (last 6 characters of part number in tab 2).

Tab 1 is a worksheet that is created from a Access query of a sql database. I cannot control the abbreviated part number that the query generates.

Tab 2 part numbers (the full 15 character number) also is generated from another access query which I also can't control.

Is there any way I can have tab 2 sheet look at the data in tab 1 and display the values for the part numbers in tab 2.

## Align Matching Row Values Column And Remove Non-matching Row Values?

Jan 27, 2014

see attachment below for easier comprehension of what I need to be done. Note that I have around 20 subjects (2 in example) and about 15000 values per subject (5 per subject shown) Basically, I want matching rows to be aligned (see grey) and non-matching rows to be deleted, throughout the 20 or so subjects.

## Matching First 4 / 5 / 6 Or 7 Words Via VLookup

Feb 12, 2014

I am trying to match the first few words in a spreadsheet with another column via vlookup. I tried [URL] ..... but it didn't work.

see attached spreadsheet. If column A and column N match up, I need a YES in column, otherwise a NO. I need formulas for the 4 first words matching, 5 words matching etc.

## Vlookup And Matching 2 Criteria

Dec 23, 2008

I have an output table that looks like the followings:......

There is 1 input for the spreadsheet: What month? Enter 9, 10, 11 etc. I need it to pull from a data sheet that is set up as such:......

So effectively it needs to vlookup the name in column A, (A, B, or C), and then it needs to match that to the column that has the same name as the output table (Crit.1 or Crit.2 and the number of the month above it (10,11,etc). I attached an excel sheet to better demonstrate

## VLookup - Matching Two Cells?

Dec 8, 2011

Is it possible to do the following?

Worksheet1!A2 holds a text value
Worksheet1!B2 holds a text value

Worksheet2!D2 holds a text value
Worksheet2!C2 holds a text value

Is it possible to use vlookup to find a match for Worksheet1!B2 in Worksheet2!C2 where the combination of Worksheet1!A2, Worksheet1!B2 is the same as the combination of Worksheet2!D2, Worksheet2!C2?

## Keyword Matching And Multiple VLOOKUP

Dec 6, 2012

I am looking to automatically assign products to a relevant categories on my website and I am working on a spreadsheet. Each category is has a four digit number assigned to it and categories are limited to 3 (Primary, Secondary & Tipperary)

For example:

Computers - 1000 - Desktops - 1100 - Dual Core PC - 1101
Computers - 1000 - Desktops - 1100 - Quad Core PC - 1102

So as you can see you can tell a Dual Core PC is in the Computer & Desktop categories just by looking at the first two digits. The last two digits are the category number. 01, 02, 03 etc.

What I wish to do is associate keywords to the category determine which category that product should be assigned.

Product ID
Product Title
Product Description
Product Spec1
Product Spec2

1
HP Desktop PC
HP Desktop PC's are computers
Intel Dual Core Processor
500GB HDD

2
HP Desktop PC
HP Desktop PC's are computers
1TB HDD

Keywords assigned to category 1101 are Computers, Computer, PC, Desktop, Dual Core.
Keywords assigned to category 1102 are Computers, Computer, PC, Desktop, Quad Core.

And the spreadsheet looks like this:

The script/sum would look at all the cells and match the highest count of keywords to that particular category and populate additional fields called Cat1, Cat2 & Cat3. Therefore the final spreadsheet would look like this:

Product ID
Product Title
Product Description
Product Spec1
Product Spec2
Cat1
Cat2
Cat3

1
HP Desktop PC
HP Desktop PC's are computers
Intel Dual Core Processor
500GB HDD
1000
1100
1101

2
HP Desktop PC
HP Desktop PC's are computers
1TB HDD
1000
1100
1102

How this can be implemented? possibility with the use of VLOOKUP or MATCH commands?

I believe a vlookup would be fine but there's was only 1 value to match but as it's multiples it would need to prioritise based on the number of keywords matched and not just the first match found.

## Matching Cell Formats Based On Matching Cell Values

Jan 28, 2010

I have a cell (A1) that contains text.
That text will match a single value in a reference list (i.e. range of cells e.g. Z1:Z26).
When the match occurs (e.g. A1 = Z16), I want the format of the reference cell (fill color, text color) to apply to the cell of interest (A1).
The reference cells are manually formatted.

I know that I could create a long list of conditional format formulas instead of using the reference, but it seems that there must be some way to tell excel: if the cell value contents are equivalent, the formatting should be as well.

## Retrieving Values Based On Matching Values On Separate Worksheets

Feb 17, 2010

Is it possible to have a formula where it will retrieve a specific value on one sheet based on matching values? Unfortunately, hlookup wont work as there are several values in the table where the 'lookup_value' is the same.

Example:

On sheet 1 (titled BSRC), I have a table which has a list of values in column 1. On column two I have the 'lookup value' which needs to be matched and all values underneath it to be retrieved from sheet 2 (titled CSRD). The 'lookup_value' range is on row 9 of sheet 2.

I have attached a sample spreadsheet for clarification.

## Align Matching Values In Columns A And B And Bring Corresponding Values With Column B

May 15, 2014

I would like to align the matching values in columns A and B but I want the values that correspond to b in c,d and e to go with the column b value.

C D and E don't necessarily have a value in there but if it does it needs to move with B

## Excel 2010 :: VLookup To Return 2nd Matching Value

Mar 10, 2012

Is is possible to construct a vlookup to identify that there are duplicate values in the Lookup_value and the Table_array and return the second and third values in the Formula result?

In the acutal project the Lookup_values and Table_arrays are in separate worksheets, but I think the example below represents the issue I'm working with.

I'm using Excel 2010

## Matching Row Values Together And Adding Corresponding Row Values

Jun 14, 2007

To best explain my problem I will use this example

Dog 2 400
Cat 4 300
Car 1 200
Dog 7 800
Car 8 900

That data is in the top of my worksheet, and I would like to be able to find all the dog values then reference the 2nd and 3rd column and add all the dog values up and then post the totals in a area below like this

dog 9 1200
cat 4 300
car 9 1100

Stipulations
1) there are different amounts of values, there may be 1 dog value or 10 dog values, I would like the program to recognize the dog values and add the corresponding values.
2) dog, cat, car values are not the only values, there may be others like "tree, apple" but are not in use. So only values in the top of the spreadsheet get referenced to the bottom part.........................

## Matching Values

## Matching Values Between Sheets?

Jan 4, 2012

I'm trying to store a value in ColumnA Row1 Sheet1 in a variable and check to see that value exists in Sheet2. If the value is in Sheet2, I want to copy the information in Row1 Sheet1 and paste it in the row of the matching value in Sheet2. I need to then check the value in ColumnA Row2 Sheet1 and check again for it in Sheet2 and I need to continue to do this until the data ends in Sheet1.

Code:
Dim x As String
Dim y As String
A = 2
B = 2

[Code]...

The above is the code I've been trying to use. It has two flaws:

It won't let me copy into the row of Sheet2 (not a big deal though)The rows get all mismatched and it doesn't actually search ALL the rows in Sheet2 so it misses some of the values that actually DO match (the big issue) I've racked my brain for hours trying to figure it out using the above method and I think I've reached the point where I'm overthinking it way too much. I also found the "Find" method but I couldn't quite teach myself how to use it.

## Matching Up Values From 2 Columns

Jun 30, 2009

I have two columns of data, in A and B. Column A has about 500 rows of numbers, while column B only has about 150. All the numbers that are in column B exist in column A.

(Column B is a monthly product production list, while column A is a "master list" of all products that can be produced)

I need someway to match the data in Column B with Column A so they line up.

I was thinking something like this, but don't know how to do it:

"Where value in column A = value in column B, then copy this data into cells D1 and E1" (so the values line up next to each other)

is this possible? Maybe with some advanced filter? Or a macro? It seems kind of silly, but I just need to have the data next to each other without doing it manually.

## Sum Values With Matching Month

Nov 17, 2006

I am trying to Sum all the values in Column G that have the same month ( date format is mm-dd-yy) in Column B but am not sure how to do this. I have tried the Vlookup but that only returns one value.

## Matching Two Values In Same Column And Returning Value From One Row?

May 12, 2014

In the attached example I paste in a report from another system into Sheet2 (rough data layout in example).

In column B in Sheet1 I have tried using Match and Index formulas to try and return only the Local Shipment figures from on Sheet2 for each staff member.

The issue i'm having is that the data in Sheet2 can change based on how long the report is run. There is also no way I can change the way the raw data is set out in Sheet2 as it's an external system.

Basically i'm looking for a formula that isn't locked down to certain cells and can work with data moving up and down columns at different stages. The key data never changes from column A and F in sheet2. But what does change is whether each person has one or both of Sales & Local Shipment data in the reporting. This obviously changes based on what is completed each day.

So I need a formula that matches the persons name in column A in Sheet1 with Column A in Sheet2, then looks for the first mention of 'Local Shipment' below it and returns the cloumn F value which is in the same row as 'Local Shipment'.

## Formula For Matching Values In Two Different Sheets Then Getting A Sum?

Aug 13, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where I have two different sheets; a summary sheet, and a more detailed sheet that lists out items on invoices.

The summary sheet shows invoice number, amount invoiced, and total paid against that invoice.

The detailed sheet goes into more details, and shows whats on the invoice, and any reasons for them not being paid.

I want a formula on the summary sheet that picks up the invoice number from the details sheet, and then brings through the figures. The details sheet may have more than one line for an invoice number, so the formula needs to be able to add up too.

I've tried a vlookup, but it doesnt seem to work, and I dont think it will do what I want.

## MATCHING Multiple Values And SUMMING?

Feb 8, 2014

We have a table that records payment dates and amounts ... and it categorizes how the payment was made. See attached file to understand the process.

Column A records the payment date. Two or more payments can be recorded for the same date!!!

Column B records the amount of payment.

Column C records the method of payment (OL or LB or CC or CK).

Here's what we need:

On a given date (cell J4), we need to match any dates in Col A ... and we need to SUM all payments that match that date .... and the SUM needs to be based upon the method of payment (OL or LB ...) and values stored respectively in E4,F4,G4,H4 (or left blank if no date match).
