# Conditional Lookup (two Criteria) And Return Value Of Different Column

Apr 13, 2012

I recently learned how to count cells in a range based on the value from another column (excel 2007) How to count cells in a range based on the value from another column but now how I can go about returning a value from another column that matches the conditional counting. For example in the table below I'm first wanting to find the rows matching "chr15" from column A that also have a value from column B that is greater than 25,000 and less than 3,000,000. But what it I wanted to instead report the corresponding values in column C? I've played with VLOOKUP to no avail but I'm not sure if that's the right line of thinking. The answer would be the values in bold.

A B C
1 chr2 12008 AA
2 chr2 149700 BB
3 chr15 51 CC
4 chr15 5624 DD

[Code] .........

## Lookup 2 Criteria And Return Info In Specific Column

Feb 8, 2008

I've got a database that is sorted by date...

I need a formula that will look for 2 criteria and once it finds those 2 matching criteria, I need it to return the information on that line that's in column 6, let's say.

so in one column I have the date, the next column I have the sales persons name, 4 columns over I have their order number.

In cell a1 of worksheet 1, I have a drop down ready that has all my sales persons listed. In cell a2 I will manually enter the date that I need to reference.

I need the formula to then look for cell a1 and a2 in worksheet 2 where I have my spreadsheet with the info I mentioned above, match that criterium in worksheet 2, and return the info in column 6.

## Lookup Until Conditional Match Then Return Last Value In Row

Mar 17, 2009

I am trying to modify this formula to do one more thing, but I can't quite figure out how to do it. I have part 1 and 2, but part 3 is giving me a very hard time. The formula is not working correctly. It is supposed to do several things.

Do an HLookup for a row and return the last value in the row.If there is no value (blank), the value should be "Incomplete."If HLookup finds a value of "Fail," it should look to see if there is a value of "Pass" BEFORE (to the left of) "Fail." If this exists, then it should return a value of "OK."

Here is what I have so far....

## Return Data Based On Lookup Criteria

Aug 31, 2006

I have an array in excel, 4 columns: Month, Day, Stock, Price. I dont know the most efficient way to handle arrays. I know i can loop through an entire array to find a specific value, but if i have a large array, this doesnt seem efficient.

For example, I would like to find the price in an Array (or Range), when i know the value of two columns. If this were in a database, I would write sql like this: " select Price from TABLE where month = 1 and Day = 3". The result would be 40.21. How can i do this with an array? I have attached a sample spreadsheet with the example mentioned above..

## Lookup/Match: Compare A1 For The Values In Column B, Then Return The Corresponding Cell (column C) In Column D

Jan 31, 2008

I've been searching the forums for this problem but I can't seem to find any answers. Anyway, this is the problem. See screenshot.

I want to compare A1 for the values in column B, then return the corresponding cell (column C) in column D.
e.g. D1 = 2, D2 = 1, D3 = 4, D4 = 5 and D5 = 3.

## Lookup Multiple Criteria In Different Tabs To Return Result

Jun 5, 2008

I am trying to lookup two distinct values in two columns (turquoise and green) in 'Cust data' tab and correlate them to the same values in two columns on 'Driver activity' tab, then return a result from column in yellow on 'Driver Activity' tab to populate the driver name in yellow column on 'Cust data' tab.

File is attached.

## Conditional Formatting To Return The Following Results If The Criteria Is Met

Jun 19, 2009

I have a conditional format that does not seem to be working for me. Cell B2 has a drop down optionSelect, No, Yes); Cell B3 is supposed to be conditionally formatted to return the following results if the criteria is met:

If B2 is equal to No or Yes then colour should become Yellow
If B3 is >0 then colour should become Blue

The problem is when B3 is greater than 0 it does not change the cell colour to Blue.

B3 Conditional Format #1 is =AND(ISTEXT(B2),B2<>"Select")
turn background to yellow
B3 Conditional Format #2 is =AND(ISNUMBER(B3),B3<>0)
turn background to blue

See attached for spreadsheet with conditional formats

## Lookup Up/Match: Return A Value In Column A If My Data Matches Column B?

Jun 5, 2009

I have a tab that has 2 columns of data and I want to be able to return a value in column A if my data matches column B. If column B has the text TRUETRUE, I want to bring back the corresponding data in Column A. How do I return all the data in Column A for all the TRUETRUEs in column B? I can only get the first instance of TRUETRUE.

## Reverse VLookup (Index Match) To Return Multiple Values Based On Single Lookup Criteria

Jul 11, 2012

I have encountered a situation where I need to essentially accomplish a reverse Vlookup (using index match) and return multiple values.

## Lookup With Multiple Criteria: Return The Amount Paid And Full Cost Based On The Person's Name And The Date

Apr 21, 2006

I would like a lookup that takes multiple criteria and that is not an array formula! Unfortunately I decided to use array formulae and my spreadsheet went to over 45mb!! Not good. I've searched the forum for an answer to my questions but couldn't find any! I've attached a spreadsheet as an example. The examples I am using have {Sum(IF)} formulae in it (array) and I would like to change those to others that will not increase the file size so much and will not take too long to calculate.

Basically, I would like a lookup that will return me the Amount Paid and Full Cost based on the person's name and the date. the data and the results table are both on separate sheets. It would be nice to bring that file's size back down to less than 4mb!!

## Lookup Value Then Return Value In Row 1 Of That Column

Nov 22, 2007

I have a list of values in column A (part numbers)

In columns B to E I have lists of similar values (part numbers, with row 1 representing their location e.g warehouse, office, etc).

In column F2 I would like to search for the value in A2 in the range B2:E100 and return the value in B1:E1 if the value appears... if it doesnt appear in any of the columns I would like 'not located' to appear in F2.

I've been trying to do this for a while but am making no progress at all.

## Lookup Value & Return Same Row Different Column

Dec 21, 2006

I am looking for a formula, to change from this
IF Formula located in Cell F15
=IF(E15=A15,B24,"")

to give the If a Range.
I thought it would simply be:

=IF(E15=A15:A39,B15:B39,"")

But all I get is Blank Cell.
B24 has a Value but it does not appear in F15,F16 and F17 respectively.

## Lookup & Return Data From Different Column

Apr 8, 2009

I have a book with multiple tabs in it. The first is a master customer file, including customer numbers. The next two tabs include multiple references to the same customers because they list multiple shipping addresses and contacts for each customer on a separate line. I want to be able to have the additional tabs refer to the master list and find the customer name, then return the corresponding customer # in the previous column for that customer. This is what I came up with: =IF(B:B=Sheet2!B:B,Sheet1!A:A,0). But the results simply returns numbers that increase by 1. It should repeat the same customer # for the number of times that customer name is listed based on how many addresses or contacts there are. What am I not doing right?

## Lookup Value - Return Column Heading

Apr 14, 2010

I want to lookup the max value within a group of columns and return the column heading (specified a cell) that corresponds to the max value.

## Nested Index / Match Array - Return Value In Column C When Matching Column A And B But With Few More Criteria

Jun 7, 2014

I am trying to use a nested INDEX and MATCH array formula to return the value in column C when matching column A and column B, but with a few more criteria.

The range containing all the data

A
B
C

1
Cat 1
January 1, 2014
John

[Code] ..........

I am looking for the array formula to return the name of the person in column C who is in Cat 1 after the date in column B.

For example;
C7 should return "John" because B7 requests "January 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C8 should return "John" because B8 requests "February 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C9 should return "Andrew" because B9 requests "August 15, 2014", which is after the value in B4

The best try I had for the formula in C7 was

{(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$C\$4,MATCH(1,(\$B\$1:\$B\$4>=B7)*(A\$1:\$A\$4=A7),0),3))}

This brings back "John" as desired in C7, but when copying down the table into C8 and C9 both C8 and C9 return Andrew.

I guess this is due to my ">=" condition in the Match formula and it is returning "Andrew" because "Andrew" is also after the date requested, but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get it to work.

## Return Column Header Based On Column Criteria And Number Value

Feb 7, 2014

I have the following sample data set and I'm trying to return the appropriate column header based on criteria (i.e. DDD) and a number value which will be somewhere within the range of the table. In example below, the value returned should be Header 2 because the value is greater than those in Header 1 column (range H9 to L26).

Here's data table:

## Lookup Of Row (return Data From Specified Row) With Column Heading And Value

Feb 21, 2014

Encryption algorythim.xlsx

Here is my scenario I have all this data i want to search in. In the rows there are repeating values and in the columns they do not repeat.

As seen in the attached i am able to give a column and row by title and then get the intersecting cell data from that. (Encryption lookup)

What i want to do is give the column tittle and row value and get back the row title. (Decryption Lookup)

This shouldn't be too hard seeing that the data in the columns has no repeats.

Nov 18, 2008

I have a list of names and the chores they need to do on a certain day. I need a formula that returns the chore the person needs to do when the date is filled in.

Ex: Sheet2 Col:A has names filled in A2:11 , row B1:J1 has dates that you would input.
formula goes in B2:J11
Sheet1 is the master with all the data the formula would be pulling from.
column A2:A11 has the names , row B1:S1 has the chore that needs to be done.
B2:S11 has the dates already filled in.

## Lookup Data Without Knowing Return Column

Aug 25, 2006

Got a bit of a stinker here. (Well, it is for me anyway. I haven't used Excel in months)!

I want to use a VLOOKUP function (I think) to retrieve data from a list of Exchange Rates on a separate sheet.

The user enters a 'Period' number, selects an 'exchange' variable (the blue text cells). The hope is to lookup the data on the 'FX RATES 06-07' sheet and return the result in the green cells.

I've tried using VLOOKUP but one of the arguements specifies that you nominate a column to return the information - that's the problem, we don't know that information when asking Excel.

## Lookup For A Cell Value In Entire Sheet And Return Value From A Column

Apr 22, 2014

I have a sheet with Customer name in the first column and next 7 columns have unique serial numbers(alphanumeric) of the systems which that customer has purchased. In another sheet, i have the unique serial number in first column and I want to search this number in the 7 columns of other sheet and return the "Customer name" to this sheet. How do I do that ?

Vlookup searches only in 1 columns, so does match index. lookup didn't work as well.

## Lookup Function - Return Value From Column That Relates To Array

Apr 12, 2013

I would like to write a formula to return a value from a column that relates to an array within which my lookup value exists. See the tables below:

ID
V1
V2
V3

105
27
3
149

[Code] .......

The tables above are on different sheets within a workbook. I would like to write a formula that returns the "ID" numbers from column "A" in the first table, based on values in columns B-D in that first table, into column "C" in the second table. For example, in this case, the ID number that corresponds with the value "12491" would be "109", since 12491 corresponds with 109 in the first table.

FYI, the "Value" numbers in the second table are calculated based on their rank (high-low) within the matrix in the first table.

I tried the INDEX-MATCH function, but it doesn't seem to work if I'm trying to find a value within a 2-D array- it only works if I'm looking in a single column.

## Excel 2007 :: Lookup To Return Column And Row Label?

## Index Match Lookup, Variable Return Column

Sep 3, 2009

I would imagine that the title of this thread made little sense, so let me try to explain:

Sheet A has columns A-C populated with data. Column D needs to search Sheet B columns A-C for a match. (ie, see if the data on sheet A is also on sheet B) if this is true, then it needs to return the value of the LAST column of the matched row in Sheet B.

So, if Sheet A R1 A-C is 1,2,3. Sheet A R1 D needs to search Sheet B for 1,2,3. and when it finds it, (for example on row 9) return the value of the last column of Sheet B row 9. The issue is, the last value could be in column R or S or AA, there is just no way of knowing.

## Return Unique ID Based On Multi-Column Lookup

Dec 18, 2008

I'm looking for a formula (VBA I'm assuming) that will help me create a unique customer ID out of data that my website generates in order to import records into my accounting system.

I have a current list of customers in CSV format with the columns: CustomerID, CustomerName, CustomerZip

Each customer in our accounting system is assigned a unique,7 digit CustomerID in the format of XXX#### where XXX are the first 3 letters of their last name, and #### is a 4 digit number (with leading 0's) to create unique ID's for customer with the same first 3 characters of their last name. SAMPLE LIST:

SCH0001, Lindsey Schubert, 75230
SCH0002, Thomas Schoembs, 53132
...

What I'd like to do is pass the formula 3 parameters (Cust_First_Name, Cust_Last_Name, Zip) and have it parse the .CSV file and either return an existing customer's current ID or generate the appropriate new, unique ID, making sure in increase the 4 digit # accordingly and insert leading 0's if necessary.

Another caveat, if possible to work with, is the ability to also pass the formula another range of cells to append to the end of the .CSV file's data for comparison reasons. There are times when I'll bulk-import orders (or we receive numerous in the same batch) and the potential exists to have two customers that would have the same CustomerID created using JUST the .CSV data. Ie. If we use the example above and have new customers of Steve Schwab and Julie Schwitzer - we'd end up incorrectly assigning them both SCH0003, where if we'd read Steve Schwab's newly created info and customer ID of SCH0003, then Schwitzer would correctly be assigned SCH0004.

## Return Cell Reference From Multi-Column Lookup

Dec 13, 2006

i just want to use vlookup and hlookup to give me the row and column headings for 30 to 40 sesor at a time.... but i keep getting #n/a whenever the functions meet a table of more than one column! (reduced workbook attached)

it should surely be simple to get this data - but i've struggled to no avail. I thought that having the four separate worksheets was the problem - but i haven't had any look even when i dump the data into a single worksheet!

i basically just want excel to return the cell reference of a sensor number which exists in a table. sometimes a sensor can appear more than once, but its not very common and i could happily work around that by doing the manual search (ctrl f, find all).

any advice would be very much appreciated, i'm struggling and the number of sensors i need to test will increase in the coming months.. please help!

should i even be using vlookup and hlookup? ive tried all the other excel functions, but they don't seem to be useful?

## Lookup Partial String To Return Data From Corresponding Column

Mar 22, 2007

I have a simple lists containing two columns. One column contains a five digit number and the other a vendor name. The vendor name in most cases is two to four words. I am wanting to type in a partial string of the vendor name and it return to me the 5 digit 'vendor' number.

Col A Col B
20567 3M Electrical, Inc.

I want to type in '3m' or '3M' or 'electrical' or 'ELECTRI' and it return the 20567. The other part of this is that there may be two rows with the same info in which I would need to see both...

Col A Col B
20567 3M Electrical, Inc.
21789 3M Tape Division

Is this possible with standard lookup features in Excel or does someone have a VbScript or macro that will accomplish this?

## Lookup & Return Values Of Adjacent Column To Textbox

Mar 28, 2008

I have an excel sheet with cols of information e.g IDNo, FirstName,LastName etc. I have created a form in VB where you enter the IDNo (& Click on a command button called View) It should populate designated textboxes on the Form. Thus it should check the col where the IDNo is stored, find the IDNo and populate the adjacent cols i.e FirstName, LastName in designated textboxes on the form.

## Lookup Column Values In Another & Return Value If Match Found

May 28, 2008

I need to create a macro that will loop through a list of names on Sheet 1 / Column A, and if that name is listed on Sheet 2 / Column A, then it will set Sheet 1 Column B (for that one name) to "1".

The problem I've run in to is that both the lists change in length each time I have to run this (so no set range).

I've been able to get this to work with two ( nested) loops, where the first loop goes through the Sheet 1 list and the nested Loop looks for the name on Sheet2, but it is extremely slow.

Is there any simple VBA code or formula that I'm missing that could do this? I've tried to do something with the " Find" VBA command, but I can't see how it would apply to this if the list changes in size.

## Lookup Match And Return Comment Based On What Is In Relevant Column

Jan 15, 2014

The logic of the formula like this....

TAB X, Column A contains a data set, each row is a unique value. In column B of TAB X, I want to input a formula that performs the following logic: Search TAB Z, Column C, for an exact match of data contained in TAB X, Column A....and if found, look in TAB Z, Column D...if a blank cell is contained there, then in TAB X, Column A, say "Unsettled" ; however, if there does exist any character (not-blank) in TAB Z Column D, then in TAB X, COlumn A, say "Settled".....but, if the data ID listed in TAB X, column A is not found whatsoever in TAB Z, Column C, then say "NOT FOUND". So for example, within TAB X, Column A there is a unique ID in one of the rows "ABC123", then searches "ABC123" in TAB Z, Column C. If found, it looks in TAB Z, Column D and that cell is blank, so TAB X, Column B, same row that contains ABC123, the result is "Unsettled".
