Conditional Formatting With INDEX/MATCH Functions On Seperate Worksheets.

Apr 16, 2009

I know there are many posts concerning this, but after scouring, I couldn't find one that fit my situation. I have a total of six worksheets, I am only concerned with two worksheets.

Worksheet (functions!)

This one has a list of numbers formatted as general. (Column G)

Is actually a formula/macro that outputs a number... (didn't know if this mattered?)

I am working on a scheduling system and am trawling through some old notes of some two or three years. I came accross two formulas, which I must have used a while ago. they are a little more baffling that what I have recently used, but I must have referenced them for a reason. Normally I write down explanations of the formulas in blonde, so that I can understand their reasoning at a later date, however, I can find no reference to them. explain what they actually do in a logical fashion. I have been looking at this for four hours, filling in date ranges and cells that they refer to, but cannot make sense of them.

I would like to use a custom function or excel formula, if already exists, that finds the text "12 months" and then returns the value of the column that holds that value.

I use the SMALL function to sort the data in date order e.g: A6= =SMALL($A$2:$E$2,1) = 1/1/13, B6= =SMALL($A$2:$E$2,5) = 2/1/13, etc:

1-Jan-132-Jan-133-Jan-133-Jan-135-Jan-13

I then use the INDEX & MATCH functions to place the names under the sorted dates e.g. A7= =INDEX($A$1:$E$1,MATCH(A6,$A$2:$E$2,0)) = "Dan", B7= =INDEX($A$1:$E$1,MATCH(B6,$A$2:$E$2,0)) = "Ed", etc:

The problem I have with this formula is that if there is a duplicate date (i.e. 3/1/13), the INDEX/MATCH formula returns a second "Aaron" rather than "Con".

How to modify this formula so it will return "Con" and not a second "Aaron"? Please note that duplicate dates may recur across the row.

The formulas always assume the data is in multiple rows rather than multiple columns.

I have 3 calculations I would like to make based on data in the spread sheet and I can't seem to get them to work with data from the two separate columns.

I tried a few of the index match max formulas I found here and could only get them to work with one column of data.

I have the spread sheet attached and the 3 calks I want to do are blank on the bottom.

I have different worksheets to contains information from different years. To make it comphrensve, I have created a mastersheet which contains all the info across the worksheets. And once I make an entry in the worksheet, I hope the mastersheet can be updated automatically. the function I set is INDEX('2011-12'!K$4:K$7,MATCH(Master!$B5,'2011-12'!$B$4:$B$7,0),1).

Yet, my problem is..... once I perform sorting in the mastersheet, the cells are wrongly matched. So, I just wonder how I can revise the function?

'ART 2013' contains a list of staff numbers in column C16:C752 and a list of dates in column M16:M752 (formatted as "mm-yyyy")

Within 'SUMMARY' cell G12 contains the date 04-2013.

What I would like to do is achieve a function that will look at 'ART 2013' columns C and M in and where the date in Column M is equal to cell G12 (04-2013) of the 'SUMMARY' worksheet excel will return the Staff Number in 'ART 2013' column C.

making a roster file for our school clinic so that reports can be generated automatically and there are less hand-written records around.

I am having trouble with the 'Supplies' sheet, where I am attempting to sum up the quantities (column k) adjacent to all occurrences of a supply in Column J sheets 1 through 31. So that we can know how much of x supply was used in the whole month and so on.

=INDEX('24'!$J$3:$K$106,MATCH(B5,'24'!$J$3:$J$106,FALSE),2) Returns a value, but that is because sheet 24 has a value for b5, problem is if i use +INDEX and any of the sheets dont have a value for B5, the result is either VALUE or N/A =SUMIF('1:31'!J5:J105,B6,'1:31'!K5:K105) gives a VALUE! error

I've also tried =INDEX('1:31'!$J$3:$K$106,MATCH(B5,'1:31'!$J$3:$J$106,FALSE),2)

1. Pupils have a target grade 2. Pupils can either do a higher or foundation Tier exam depending on their ability 3. Pupils do 9 modules and the grade bounderies are different for each module. 3. I use bar charts to report the results back to pupils and parents. Instead of just telling them you got 50% D your Target is C. I also want the target grade to be converted to a mark. I do not want to create another woorksheet inorder to use Vlookup. 4. I now know that Index and Match can do the trick of reading the left columns. But I cannot get them to first consider the Tier for each student.

I was thinking of usind IF

IF Tier is Higher then Index the Higher Table and Match else Index Foundation Table and Match to get the mark. But I do not know how to express this in a way that's readable by Excel

I have a table I use visually, and I put it in a spreadsheet. Instead of finding a table value based on row and column label decisions, I use it as follows. I decide the row by matching exactly the height, h = 8 ft. In that row, I match the next larger value of 10 kips, in this case the value is 12.72; I then pick the column header label, in this case the value is 4 x 8.

I don't know how to make"B8:L8" equivalent to "B"&3+row : "L"&3+row in the 2nd Match formula?

I think I could get this to work but the INDEX command is not returning an index of the row like it is documented. It is returning the value in the cell. In order to get this to work, I need to return the index of the row. I need to know what row the match found the item on because the value I need to copy is going to be in column J of that same row.

I have two worksheets within 1 excel document.1 worksheet is a hand filled and excel programmed worksheet (Name is website-upload)1 worksheet is a hand filled and excel programmed worksheet (Name is website-upload)

1 worksheet is a hand filled and excel programmed worksheet (Name is website-upload)

The other worksheet is a table from a database connection worksheet. (Name is ODBC_Products)

Each worksheet has a Sku column in it.

website-upload: Column AODBC_Products: Column B

Each worksheet has a QTY column in it.

website-upload: Column KODBC_Products: Column J

Goal: I would like to search the Sku column ODBC_Products and find a match for a sku that is listed in the website-upload sku column and then when I find that match, display the qty from the ODBC_Products worksheet to the website-upload worksheet.

Notes: I add columns and delete columns all of the time on this worksheet so I would rather do this in excel vs. a macro. I figure this can be done with something like:

I have a workbook that has 5 worksheets. Worksheet1 is the Summary tab, Worksheets 2-5 contains data all sitting under the same headings and formats however vary in row number e.g.

In Worksheet 1 Column AQ contains a Cost Centre number which I would like to extract the parent description of in Column BI of the same Worksheet and then the child description into Column BJ. Worksheet 1 currently has 16000+ rows and grows daily.The location of the Cost Centre in Worksheets 2-4 is contained in Column A and the Parent Description in Column W and the Child Description in Column Y.I am currently using this INDEX MATCH formula to search all worksheets but as you can imagine it's tediously slow and needless to say sometimes not reporting/updating the values correctly likely because it's frozen.

=VLOOKUP(AQ2,INDIRECT("'"&INDEX(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$4,MATCH(TRUE, COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&Sheet1!$A$1:$A$4&"'!A2:A63355"),AQ2)>0,0))&"'!A2:W63355"),23,0) this looks up Cost Centre in Worksheet 1 Column AQ and returns the results from Column W in Worksheets 2-4 to Worksheet 1 Column BI

Basically I have 2 sheets. The first an orders sheet which shows all orders from companies with the date of the order, whether it is a repeat order, and whether it has been delivered. The second sheet a customer account sheet which shows the order history by customer. I have used the following formula :

To extract the companies from the orders sheet however if a company has had no previous order (i.e. a new customer) and has not recieved a delivery yet I do not want him added to the sheet.

I have tried amending my formula in different ways but always encounter problems.

This had been hunting me for weeks and I still could not come over it after weeks of study the conditional formating IF, match, index, Vlookup, etc to find several duplicated value, e.g Column B = Name 1 & Row B = Time and so on, where as Name will have data of Name 1 duplicated in different time, while row B, "Time"would change to a different Name and maybe it would go back to Name one.

My problem was dont know which formula I can use in a different sheet to bring back the data to Name 1 did Task A at Time A, while Name 1 did Task B at Time K, etc. If this is not Name 1, then Name B replace above.

I have 2 worksheets - one is a monthly update, the other is last month's data.

I want to highlight the changes on the monthly update sheet using conditional formatting.

I named the columns as ranges on the "last month" worksheet, and then used =Match(A1,Jan,0) (wheras Jan is the range on the "last month" worksheet where A1 resides)

What formula do you use to say "if A1 does NOT match a value in range "jan", then format it"?

Basically, would like to have the following conditional formatting:

There is a fruit listed and the are person 1 and person 2. If the fruit under Person 1 or Person 2 matches the fruit under Fruit, the cell under either person 1 or person 2 highlights green; if it does not match, it highlights red. If the fruit has not been listed under fruit, such as in cell A3, cells B3 and C3 are not highlighted.

Is it possible to perform conditional formatting on numerous worksheets at one time. I have about 50 worksheets that I would like to perform the same conditional format on. Is there a way to do this.

I have an "actual build" worksheet, which allows the user to select which materials were used, material properties (e.g. material grade etc.), including its corresponding length. The user can enter all these in manually, or select the material name from a pre-defined list (Reference worksheet contains this information), and then the associated properties are automatic lookups from the Reference worksheet.

So all this is fine / completed, and the LOOKUP returns its theoretical length from the reference table. However, its actual material lengths will almost never match the theoretical length, so what I want to happen is for a conditional format to highlight the cell, to notify the user that they need to enter a manual value. The auto-looked up length is still useful a proposed build on the worksheet, but having it highlighted to ensure it is manually entered later is the objective.

The other thing is it can't just check if it's a formula, it has to check if it is a formula with a MATCH/LOOKUP function. E.g. it needs to be unhighlighted if someone has a basic formula, ie = 2*0.42 if there two of the item etc..

Hence, I was thinking of having a conditional formula that "format only cells that contain" and then format only cells with "specific text" and "containing" and "MATCH(" text function, however this doesn't seem to work.

I would like to have excel check if eight of ten of cells in a row are above a certain criteria, then if they are format the tenth cell to be red...so excel checks the ten cells above and if eight of them are above a certain number then that cell shades red.

The Problem: There is data in a step chart from left to right. On a separate step chart, Conditional formatting is set to lookup values from the first step chart and highlight non empty cells in the row. The formatting should only format the first non empty cell from left to right in the row. After formatting the first non zero value in the time line the formatting should cease. Note: the conditional formatting value and the value of the cell being formatted are not the same in either value or time but are related. The formatting is to illustrate the relation

Current Formatting formula:

=VLOOKUP($B395,$B$5:$DB$211,K$242,0)

Syntax for Vlookup(Lookup_Value,Table_array,Column_index_num,Range_Lookup)

I have 2 worksheets. One has locations with numbers, example:

275 Location 1 276 Location 2

I have all my locations on the second sheet, but in 2 different columns, listed with numbers only, example: 271 275 272 300

I have 2 scenarios I need help with.

1st: If any of the numbers on sheet 1 match the numbers in column 1 on sheet 2, highlight the number on sheet 1 in green If any of the numbers on sheet 1 match the numbers in column 2 on sheet 2, highlight the number on sheet 1 in red

2nd: If the number on sheet 2 matches any number on sheet 1, highlight green

I want these to apply to all the cells that have numbers (it could apply to all cells I guess as it should ignore it if it doesn't match, I would assume)

In a column in which there are repeating numbers is there a formula I can enter into conditional formatting that will highlight a cell when the number doesn't match the value from the value above it?

So in this example the values with an * would be highlighted.

Cell BM22 is a percentage calculation of the differences between two different days of volume for this stock and that formula is: =(BH22/BH25)-1 Cell BM22 currently is calculating the result to be -65.65%

When I set up a CLASSIC Conditional Formatting using a formula (="If($BJ$20=""SELL""") to check the if the text in cells BK10 match the text displayed in cell BJ20 - I get no error messages and no formatting?

I am using Mac Office Excel 2011. I feel like I have tried everything including changing the Number selection type of the cells to TEXT. Nothing seems to works.
