Complex List - Search For Text And Return Value In Table
Jan 20, 2014
I have a complex list of text (a chart of accounts) with various roll ups for subtotals on one worksheet, and monthly download on another worksheet showing the name of the account and the value. I wish to use match the text to return the value in the front sheet and avoid taking the simple route of linking the cells in case additions are added during the year.
I've tried using IF and VLOOKUP formulas without success - i guess becasue I cannot sort the table in descending order?
What would be the best sort of formula to search using the text, and return a value on the same row?
I looked for a way to represent my data in a cleaner way than this but couldn't find any tools....a point in the right direction would be helpful. I guess the old plug-in that converted Excel->HTML isn't available?
Column A is a finished product and B-D are the ingredients to make it however values in Column A are also ingredients (sometimes multiple times). I want a formula that searches for values in Column A within the table B1:D5 and returns an array, if possible, of the finished products where Column A was used.
For example, searching for Sugar would return "Flour, Water". Searching for Water would return "Milk, Eggs" (I'd rather not have Milk listed twice but beggars can't be choosers).
In a large spreadsheet that receives external data, I have codes (U, N or V) allocated at various times to different rows as shown in sample worksheet attached. Elsewhere in the spreadsheet, I need to display (for later export) these codes along with their respective number in a sorted list. Please review the attached:
In the spreadsheet you'll see a column of codes, the next column is the data reference number, then to the right is three columns, one for each code. As displayed in the sample book attached, each Code column is to display the data reference number (from column 2)that matches that column's code.
What formula can I use to list these numbers in the appropriate columns?
I'm looking for a formula to search for a value in the SECOND (instead of first) column of a table array and return a value in the same row from FIRST (instead of the same or another) column in the table array. Formula would be searching for the unique production order number in the column B and return production line id from the column A.
A1 production line_id B1 poduction_order_number
A2 L1 A3 L2 A4 L1
B2 505212 B3 504234 B4 505663
I was trying vlookup(504234;B2:A4;2;0) to make formula go search from right columns to the left but then excel is switching the search table to A2:B4 and gives #N/D! One remark-there is no possibility to switch these 2 columns to simplify. I have to leave them as they are.
I have my data arranged in a table on sheet1 as shown below.
Columns B to H contain the hours each person normally works on the days of the week Sun to Sat. In columns I to O are the hours that each person has booked as holiday for that week.
On sheet2 I would like to be able to enter a holiday day in C1. In A3 to A15 I would then have a list of all the people who will be working on that day and in C3 to C15 have a list of the people who are on holiday so the output on sheet 2 would look like this.
Basically I'm after the formulas for A3 and C3 that can be copied down the column depending on how big my table gets. I am using Excel 2010.
I have sheet 1 that in cells V5:V20 is a data validation drop down box. In cells W5:W20 I have another data validation drop down box. On sheet 2 I have a table that in column A matches the data in the drop down box's in column V on sheet 1. Row 1 on sheet 2 data matches the data in the drop down boxes in sheet 1 cells W5:W20. What I'd like to do is on sheet 1 Cells Y5:Y20 have a VBA code to lookup the data in columns V and W from sheet 2 and return the value.
In the attached sample file, one can see the setup of my data. I'm trying to reference the row number of a certain cell in a matrix with many cells of the same value. I have different Headers of each row, which should make it possible to use INDEX, MATCH or VLOOKUP. but i don't seem to be able to get it right.
Description.I need to return the "class" och each of the capability elements, i.e. If the capability in "Soups" is marked ("X"), at class 3, i need the integer "3" to be shown here.
I have a phone list and I am trying to add a search box to it that when you type in the Employee name, it will return the value of the cell adjacent to the search result so the extension can show up.
I am a VBA Novice, but I have found plenty of code for the searching aspect of it. I am having trouble figuring out how to have the search occur and then return a different value then what was originally searched for.
Ideally I would like the msg box to show both the employee's full name and extension.
I have a list of product numbers in col. A. In col. O I have a list of file names that contain the product numbers as well as additional characters. I need a formula that will search col O for the first instance of the text in cell A2 and return that value.
The next formula will return all instances that contain the text found in A2.
I'm trying to create a spreadsheet using several others in several different formats. What i need to do is search for a text string eg "EVP" in one column and return the numerical value of the cell in the column next to it - then sum all the values and create a table in the new sheet eg.
I have a spreadsheet containing several names. I want a formula or macro that will search a string of text within the cell. If the text exists within the cell, I need a code to populate. For example,
In cell E2, search for a phrase anywhere in the cell that contains "COM". In cell H2 look for the exact phrase "ASB". When "COM" is found in E2 and "ASB" is found in H2, in cell U2 return the value "COM ASBTVL".
In my case, E2 may not contain "COM", it may contain "DEN" instead. In that case, if E2 contains "COM", and if "H2" contains "SVC", then in U2 populate "COM APPSVC"
I'm guessing in my code I will need to list a set of criteria that will search row by row and return certain values when finding the text I specify.
Would a macro be best for this? Does anyone know how I would put that together?
I have a workbook containing multiple sheets for documents issued to manufacturers. I have a summary sheet which contains all of the documents and I would like to be able to look up a document number against all the sheets, and return the name (or names if multiple finds) of the sheets containing this document.
I have got close to solving this by finding another post[URL] .... but I believe this doesn't work because it searches on values rather than matching text.
I have attached a simplified example file with the sheets to search being Fab 1, Fab 2 and Fab 3, and the formula need to go into column B of the Main Sheet.
Here is an example of the data I get each day Letter order granting Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC's et al 4/16/12 request to add an alternate water source etc under CP11-72.Letter order granting Cameron LNG, LLC?s 4/5/13 filing of a request to introduce natural gas or process fluids into the BOG Liquefaction Project under CP12-15.Letter order accepting NorthWestern Corporation's 8/7/12 submittal of revisions to its transmission planning process to comply with the Commission's June 8, 2012 Order under ER11-2932.Letter order approving Public Service Company of New Mexico's 12/7/12 filing of a joint Offer of Settlement with Navopache Electric Cooperative, Inc under ER11-4534 et al. How can I set up my spreadsheet and what formulas can I use to search and return a value for each text string based on the attached table (column B)?
I am having a littler trouble with using a function to find text (last name) in a table and then return full name from the table. See attached sheet with example of what I am looking for.
A quick explanation:
Have a table with columns that have team and name of player. My input is the last name of the player and the team. Need a fomula that searches all the table and then returns the full name of player based on 2 conditions of last name and team.
I am trying to write a formula that will return a statement if a certain month is contained in the text within another cell. Formula is =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("Dec",Assumptions!B2)),"Ensure Journal is Non Reversing","")
Cell B2 contains a date in the format of Dec 08, so if this date contains Dec, then return "Ensure Journal is Non Reversing", if it doesn't then leave the cell blank.
At the moment it is putting in the first test for every month I select and not changing to blank.
I am trying to write code so I can control the PivotFields on a PivotTable from another sheet in the book. I cannot figure out how to get Excel to return a list of the fields in each page field. If I record code to change the Animal PivotField to show dogs, i get the following:
Need to do (preferrably as a UDF so I can call it many times and build the macro I really need) the following string testing macro. For a given column (B) - look to the field immediately to the left for a text string. This string will be searched for a list of other strings contained in Column D ( cells D1:D5). We want a case insenstive SEARCH (or find I suppose in macro terms) to return a true if the strings are found or false if it is not. Example test string in cell B1 would be:
I have hundreds of records of customer info and I am trying to categorize the job titles so that I can conduct some analysis with a pivot table. My problem is that there is about 20 different ways and variations of "manager" so Instead of autofiltering for "mrg." "Manager" "marketing manager" ect. and then replacing the text manually and using the enter and fill process (to create some standardization to compare "manager" to "director" to "c-level" to "consultant", etc.) and repeating this process over and over again...
I would like to create a VBA that would search the column "job title" for multiple text strings at once and if the text string was true in the cell then the cell would be replaced by a new text string "Manager". I was thinking a series of if functions within one vba but I am not sure if this is possible.
The idea is to have our technicians complete a timesheet showing how their time is being allocated between various tasks. I have created the spreadsheet and each row has a drop-down list with 6 options (Project Management, Audit, Office, etc) then a start and finish time which is calculated. I want to automate it so each each task option (Project Management, Audit, etc.) is calculated. There will be multiple entries for each task option over a weekly period. I tried VLOOKUP, but it does not work well with the text entries. I have attached a copy of the spreadsheet to better illustrate what I am trying to explain.
