# CountBLANK Not Working With Vlookup Function

Jan 27, 2014
I have 3 worksheets for 3 separate managers, each sheet has a column which uses a COUNTBLANK function to work out the number of days off an employee has had off in the last two weeks:

Now the formula works perfectly on each worksheet, however I also have a master worksheet (which is identically set out and formatted to the 3 manager sheets) which uses a vlookup formula to pull the data from all 3 worksheets into one at the beginning of the workbook.

The problem I've come across is that the COUNTBLANK formula doesn't work on the master worksheet - I think this has something to do with the vlookup formula entered into the cells which I consider to be blank, but excel doesn't?

I've tried using a separate vlookup formula to pull the data from the 3 managers worksheets and this does work unless an employee appears on more than one managers' sheet - then the data from both worksheets is added together.....

Is there another function I could use to display the information I need to?

I have a data set, with 20-30 columns and 3500 ish rows - in here I have to get different kind of information on each column.

One of them is Missing Values, that is cells that are blank in the specific columns, I know I can just use the countblank function and then just put in the number - but how do I do it if I want the formula to appear "inside" my pivot table, so that I have this range of data, and I want to calculate how many blank cells this specific column have.So my question is: Is possible to add the formula to my pivot table/data and get it to show next to the other information that I require on the different columns?

I have the following formula that has ceased to work in excel. I don't think there are any errors in it so I'm unsure as to why the link no longer works. Neither of the files I'm using has moved location on the server.

=IF(H7>0,(I7*H7)+((I7*H7/100)*VLOOKUP(B7,'T:FILEFILEFILE'!$B:$E,4,FALSE))+0.25,0)

I'm not sure if this makes much of a difference but people opening the file use various versions of Microsoft Office.

I am trying to create a single cell formula that returns the min value of an array returned from a vlookup function. This is part of a more complex solution that I am trying to implement, but I think I have narrowed my problem down to this issue, so I have created a very simple example to demonstrate.

Cells A1 to B5 contain a lookup table:

table.tableizer-table {border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;} .tableizer-table td {padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc;}

.tableizer-table th {background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold;}

LetterNumber D4 C3 B2 A1

Cells A7 to C8 contain the input values:

table.tableizer-table {border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;} .tableizer-table td {padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc;}

.tableizer-table th {background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold;}..................

Can anyone tell me how to count blanks in column B if they are next to criteria in column A?

PERSON 1 BLAH

PERSON 1

PERSON 1

PERSON 1 BLAH

PERSON 2

PERSON 2 BLAH

PERSON 2 BLAH

PERSON 2

I think I want something like if A:A = Person 1, then countblank in B:B?

I have 3 sheets ("zip", "report", "ches") in a workbook

I want "ches" column A to be filled with data from "report" column D if there is a match of "zip" cell A12 from "report" column S

I keep getting the error

"unable to get the Vlookup property of the WorksheetFunction class"

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim myRange As Range

Dim myRange1 As Range

Set myRange = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("report").Range("A1:S65536")

Set myRange1 = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("ches").Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)

myRange1.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("zip").Range("a12"), myRange, 4)

End Sub

I have a vlookup that returns an #N/A error due to the table array originally being formatted as text. The data is simply a two or three digit number.

I have tried everything I can think of to get the table array to equal the lookup value.

I formated cell to number. I tried tab delimated/finish. I tried typing a 1 in a different cell and doing a paste special then multiply. I tried copying to a different worksheet. I just cannot get it to work.

I was looking for a final result as follows

21-Aug-09 + 1 = 24-Aug-09 (Day + next 1st working day)

21-Aug-09 + 3 = 26-Aug-09 (Day + next 3rd working day)

VLOOKUP will only work to a set limit number of text characters in a cell. So I can search for the value "*orange*" if the cells contain a reasonable amount of text, but as soon as this exceeds some limit, it returns BLANK. I've also tried using INDEX/MATCH with same problem. Is there a workaround or alternative function?

For example:

This will work and return the text in cell A2

A2: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Orange. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

This will return BLANK

A2: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Orange. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

I have a spreadsheet with members details in and I've added a few columns showing:

Col Q: Paid 2008 (blank if No, 1 if Yes)

Col R: Show Paid Yes or No (shows a Yes or a No)

Col S: Date Joined (only entered if new and joined during 2008)

Col Z: Subs owing from 2008 (if existing members and owe last yr's subs)

Col AA: Subs to Pay in 2009 (a standard £35 or pro rata if joined during 2008)

Col AB: Pro Rata (if they joined other than at the beginning of 2008)

Col AC: EA Sub? (based on a yes/no column, to add £5 if yes)

Col AD: Total to Pay for 2009

So the formulae (or data entered) for the above columns are as follows:

Col Q: Paid 2008 - blank if no, 1 if Yes

Col R: Show Paid Yes or No - =IF(Q2=1,"Yes","No")

Col S: Date Joined - a date entered in format d/m/yy

Col Z: Subs owing from 2008 - =IF(R2="no", 35,0)....I want a default 35 in here

Col AA: Subs to Pay in 2009 - =IF(S2="",35,"Pro Rata")....says that if there is no date which indicates they are an existing member, they will pay the standard 35, otherwise they'll be paying a pro rata fee...................

Problem:

It all works fine until a certain row (27 actually) - then I get a VALUE! error which points to the Date Joined field. Now I've tested that value against the vlookup table and it returns the correct data, so why doesn't it do it in my spreadsheet????? I've tried changing the formats on the cells; clearing all data; entering a different date, but from that row in the spreadsheet down to the last row, it simply won't work! I've looked at each formula in each cell on the rows where it is working and the rows where it isn't and I can't see anything different.

What else can I look for? It is SO frustrating as it does what I need it to to do but only for a third of the spreadsheet!!!!

I have a column of numbers I want to look up, and a column of results to the right I want to spit out.

So I have the vlookup formula in column G, H a copy of that, except it's showing the formula instead of result. Same thing with I and J. So you can see the actual formula.

I've manually found the first two numbers and colored them red and green... but I can't seem to get the formula to work.. As you can see, it's only able to find the negative numbers, but not any of the positive numbers.

I tried to test the cells if they are equal or not, and they seem to be equal!

embedding the following

(VLOOKUP(A2,[svdlsa08_2007mast.xls]Sheet1!$A$2:$U$3869,1,FALSE)

in the following statement:

=IF(((VLOOKUP(A2,[svdlsa08_2007mast.xls]Sheet1!$A$2:$U$3869,1,FALSE))-A2=0),(VLOOKUP(C2,[svdlsa08_2007mast.xls]Sheet1!$C$2:$U$3869,17,FALSE)),"No Match")

The IF statement is designed to check a different value in the source spreadsheet against one in the destination sheet which should always match for the desired values, but this doesn't seem to make any difference to what is being returned - I'm still getting the first match instead of the appropriate one.

Is there a better way to force the VLOOKUP to return the value from the correct match and not just the first one?

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.

[Code]....

This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. $E3 is the date required, $BA$1:$DN$1 is the range the dates are entered in

Match: Lookup value = $E3

Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'$BA$1:$DN$1

match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. $A$4 is the department name, $B$434:$B$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = $A$4

Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'$B$434:$B$452

match type = 0

Index: array = $BA$434:$DN$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

I'm trying to compare two very large files to find some that are in one AND also in the other. I'm using =VLOOKUP(C2,Parts2!C:D,1,FALSE) and my results are #N/A for all of them. I have formatted both columns as 'General' because there can be letters and numbers in the serial number, I have also tried formatting as text to no avail. I have confirmed no preceding or trailing spaces or other special characters.

I am however, able to locate values in both documents using Ctrl F. I'm totally puzzled because I've always been able to figure out what's causing my Vlookup issues when I have them but this time I'm not able to.

I am trying to get this tricky formula to work with vlookup and if error. The problem is that excel will not recognize the formula when I try to drag it down, but instead repeats the same numbers over again. I've tried some combinations using vlookup, rows, and if error, but it doesn't seem to work. So I'm trying to drag down the formula from g3:g99, to reference either cells b8:99, or whichever value I enter into f1, on down to b99.

I am trying to use a =vlookup(and( type formula. Excel accepted my syntax, but the formula is not working. Here are the details:

=VLOOKUP(AND(E2,O2),'[SOURCE DATA FOR PROFILES.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B:$G,6,FALSE)

The values from cell E2 and O2 are both present on a row in the SOURCE DATA spreadsheet, and column 6 is the last column in my table (both values appear before column 6, but not next to each other).

The formula returns #N/A. Under those circumstances, shouldn't it return the value of column 6 on the row where those two values are present together?

Do the columns containing the values have to be next to each other in the table for this to work? Does the data type matter (one is a number, the other a street address)? The value to be returned is a number.

This vlookup has been in this workbook for years. All of a sudden any of the cells that have formulas won't work without placing the cursor after the formula in the bar and hitting enter.

It is keeping a marco from running correctly.

I have a vlookup formula: =VLOOKUP(TRIM(C101),Sheet2!$A$1:$B$500,(2), FALSE)

It is not working with General number values. Why is this? Is there something I should add?

The formula works if I swap columns to one with text or if I include text in the column.

Excel 2013

Our company has a shipping report spreadsheet that has the job number in column A and the ship date in column F. I want to track other things on a separate spreadsheet. So far, we are only down to row 1440 so in order to account for future jobs, my code on the other spreadsheet is:

=VLOOKUP(A2, '[Shipping Report.xlsx]Monthly shipping schedule'!$A$1:$F$5000, 6, FALSE)

Also, the jobs are arranged by ship date, not by number order.

This has worked perfectly for months but for some reason, it will no longer recognize job numbers greater than 1331. The format is the same between the working and non-working cell. Is there a max limit for vlookups that I am not aware of? If this was a sudden failure, I could nail it down but there has to be an underlying reason I'm not seeing.

Here is a sample of my spreadsheet:

Ship Date

1325 12/27/13

1326 3/10/14

1327 1/4/14

1328 1/31/14

1329 3/3/14

1330 1/22/14

1331 1/15/14

1332 #N/A

1333 #N/A

1334 #N/A

1335 #N/A

1336 #N/A

1337 #N/A

1338 #N/A

1339 #N/A

1340 #N/A

I have an Excel 2003 situation I cannot resolve. In one workbook, I have a table of multiplication factors based on a numerical general ledger code. On another sheet, I have a data extract including that code and a cost. In the latter sheet, I need to multiply cost by the appropriate factor based on the GL code - IF Code=X, then cost*factor.

Should be simple, but I have too many codes for a nested IF statement. I also tried a VLOOKUP, but since the codes are numerical, Excel interprets them to be in the thousands, while my factors are 1.xxxxxxx, and since the data being looked up thereby appears smaller than the keys, VLOOKUP will only return #N/A or ?NAME, depending on whether I try to nest it in an IF or not. I also have several thousand records per month to which this needs to be applied, so going manual is not an option.

The calculating is done in column E, the original cost is in column AB, the key (GL code) is in column R, and the GL code range with factors is on the !Factors sheet (column A=Code, B=Description, C=factor).
