Data Table Is Pasted In For VLookUp - Not Have To Redo Table Name Each Time
Jun 2, 2013
I created a lookup table that works quite well. It even has if statements in the LookUp Formula. However, I have to update the table it pulls the information from each day. I wind up recreating the range each time because the table always has more rows each time. Is there a way I could just paste the table in each day and not have to change the range? The columns never change.
and what I want is to say put a formula in cell B3 on Sheet 1 pointing to cell C3 that has zip code 33333. I want it to then take that and look in Sheet 2 and search A1:D3 and when it finds 33333, return "territory 2" back to cell B3 on Sheet 1.
I have a Takeoff sheet where an estimator enters a part# and the rest of the data is entered on the Takeoff sheet by using Vlookup to retrieve the information from the Products Sheet (there are about 12,000 products with 12 fields for each product). I need to then take all of the parts on the Takeoff sheet, and summarize the data, which is what Pivot Tables are for. The thing I cannot find out, is if this can be done. The machine keeps running out of memory (it has 32g, so I question that, and I tested with a 500 row sheet and got the same result), so I can never get the Pivot Table to actually create, or get a useful error message. Searching the web and this forum tells lots about Vlookup IN a Pivot Table, but not creating a Pivot Table from Vlookup data. I copied the data values to a new sheet to test the data and the Pivot created fine, so I believe the data itself is properly formatted.
I have a workbook where in Sheet1 Cell A1 is a customer name, and A2:A5 contain parameters for the customer. I would like to be able to input those data to a Vlookup table on Sheet2. (The Vlookup is used to fill values on Sheet3).
I have been trying to create a macro to copy those parameters from sheet1A2:A5 by finding the match for A1 in the Vlookup table in Sheet2 and then copying to the corresponding matching row , A2 pasting into column 3 (on the corresponding row of course), A3 into colum 4, A4 into column 5 and A5 into Column 6.
I get a file every day that contains online orders for a client. They have made the state and country fields on the order form free text, so sometimes the State field has CA, sometimes California, sometimes even Cal or Cali. Oregon may be represented as OR, Oregon, or Ore (and one time even Orygon.)
The country field may have US, USA, United States and sometimes United States of America.
Well, they need this data imported to their system with the states fully spelled out: Oregon, California. And the country spelled out as well: United States, Canada.
Right now I have a lookup tables worksheet that I just have a macro run a vlookup on. But I'd like to know if there is a way I could just put it all in the code, without the external tables.
i.e. some code that, in English, would basically say, "If the value of any cell in column K is among these values, replace it with those values, otherwise just leave it as it is". Could I do that while containing the two sets of values right in the code rather than on a worksheet?
I really just want to replace the standard abbreviated state/country codes with the full text, and if the value does contain Cali or Ore, let them manually make the change. Hopefully that will finally nudge them to just make the online order form utilize a drop-down list of states and countries, rather than free text.
I'm using VLOOKUP with MATCH to find data in a table. I now have to add a third condition to the look up. I've attahced a file as an example. I'm not sure how to list the data for the third condtion. I created another table with the data for third condition.
Okay I'm having a mind block on the best way to create a table from user supplied date and time. Once the user updates the date cell and then the time cell it will return only the data specified provided both arguments are true. This data is provided from sheet one where the data is constantly being added to.
I am using a vlookup with a table that has data which uses a number which correlates to an item. A person types the number into a cell which triggers the vlookup. See example
So..if someone enters let say number 36 into the look up cell..since 36 does not exist in the table the vlookup returns the value next to cell 37. Is there a way to use vlookup so that if a number it is looking up does not exist it wont return the next value? I would like to return an error message if the number being looked up does not exist.
I have a lookup table which needs to be able to retrieve data from columns as well as rows and not sure if this is possible.
My data is set up with an ID number, financial year and data across the columns e.g
ID F/Y Apples Pears 9999 2004/5 5 4 9999 2005/6 7 8 9881 2003/4 5 3
My lookup table will have the ID number field which will be manually entered to lookup the information on the data sheet. e.g
ID 9999 FY Apples Pears 2004/5 5 4 2005/6 7 8
I can't work out a way to get excel to only give me the number of apples and pears for that year for that ID number. Not all ID numbers will have the same number of financial years so I may need to use VBA.
I have several spreadsheets referencing the "Data" sheet's table (about 35 columns, and the row lengths will differ from 10 to several hundred).
I need to be able to filter the table in "Data", and have the hidden rows not show up everywhere else in the document. I have both vlookups and index formulas in the other spreadsheets, and what I'd like to do is be able to filter by any column in the table and have only the shown results show in the other sheets.
I know this might be accomplished using subtotal, and Row, etc., but how to set it up with the different formulas I have going on in the sheet that pull data from the table. I need this to work with both the vlookups and index cells.
On a daily basis we have to manually fill in a time sheet, and I was trying to think of a way where I could just copy and paste it into excel and it would show me on another sheet the total amount of hours I have worked over the month. This gets slightly more difficult, as different clients have different campaigns, and you can work on any variety during the day (however, not all of them do).
Typical raw data looks like this:
Client Hours Campaign
Rubber gloves 4.1 SEO
Therefore I would like to combine the data and then send it off to another report that looks like this:
Rubber gloves - SEO Rubber Gloves - PR Bottled Water
1/12/12 4.1 2.3 2.8
This would allow me to keep a check of how many hours I am working on each campaign over the month, and ensure that I don't run over on time. I have the boxes prepared for the 2/12/12, 3/12/12, etc. where I paste the raw data, and let excel break it down and put it in the report automatically.
I have been entering the data manually so far and I'd quite like to avoid a pivot table or chart (but i am open to it).
I have a report I am attempting to populate with data from a pivot table in another worksheet. Column A holds all the reference numbers (primary key), column B contains various start dates, and I want column C to contain all the payments made since the start date for each reference number.
The source data is a pivot table with Row = Reference number, column = transaction date, values = transaction amounts. This is an extremely large table, as I'm processing data from almost 1,200 cases, which each have around 20 payments spread over the last year, on completely random days. What I would like to do is build a formula in my report which looks up the records for the reference number from column A, and then adds up all the payments which have been made after the date in column B (and ignore any payments in the table which are before that date).
And to make things more complicated:
if an error is generated, it needs to return as 0, not #N/AThe report has the dates in UK format dd/mm/yyyy, but the pivot table has the dates in SQL format: yyyy-mm-ddThe pivot table is connected to a SQL database via ODBC and has to refresh every time it is opened.
I have a vlookup function which takes the data from a table in a closed file. A folder where the file would be located will change based on the value in the cell reference.
I used below formula which works, but every time when i drag or try to edit and enter, the path of the file path brokes and i need to reselect the path where the file is located. Is there a way where i can stop this?
I have created a table in Excel 2010 (pls see attached table named post.xlsx).
Then copied the above table into PowerPoint 2010, using "paste link" (I tried to attach the PowerPoint file but the system says "invalid file type" and I cannot attach it).
I have received income data for another month - the new month is 13 and the corresponding new income is 100. I typed 13 and 100 into the Excel table post.xlsx and thus extended the table by another column.
Then I went back to PowerPoint slide, then right clicked on the table there, then clicked "update link".
The newly-typed column in Excel table is not get updated in PowerPoint table.
I have enable Refresh on Open for my excel pivot table, but user need to click "Enable Automatic Refresh" , only solution i came across is to change the registry setting. Which i dont have access to edit registry(admin disable the access).
Alternate solution i try to use Access macro to automate the process and use Outputto save it as a excel file A. Then use excel file B to update pivot table from excel file A.(as excel A data is always latest) The problem is i will get "....A file name already exist...do you want to overwrite.." prompt. Which defeat the automate process.
Any other solution to enable the automatic refresh on open the excel workbook?
Or Access can overwrite the exist file or save it as another file name with timestamp ?
In the attachment you will see an example of what I am trying to accomplish. What I am trying to do is find VBA code that is either specific to this worksheet or in a macro. When the sheet is opened I enter a date in B2. I then enter data into A7, B7, and C7. What I would like to happen is when the data is entered into A7, B7, and C7 the sheet goes and finds the same date that I entered in B2 and copies that data from A7, B7, and C7 into F7, G7, and H7.
I would like to have a macro to automatically generate a statistics table (on the "statistics" tab) with the 5 following fields: Fragment names / # samples / # of failed samples / % of success / # of variations in the fragment (SNP). At the bottom of this table, I would like to have a cell with the average % of success for all fragments. The data to generate these statistics are on the "gene name" tab (please note that this name will change every time I will work on a new gene). To make things easier, I think the macro should be run from this tab.
1. The Fragment names are displayed in row #5. I use one column per variation per fragment. If one fragment has 3 variations, there will be three columns and I will merge together the fragment name cells. The fact that some cells are merged can be a problem when copy-paste to the stats table (as I would like to get rid of the merging).
2. # of samples corresponds to the number of cells in blue in column A. The number of samples can change from one report to another but is always constant in the same report.
3. # of failed sequences. In the table, I type "Failed Sequence" (if the analysis has failed) and "Missing Sequence" (if the analysis has not been done). When a sample is failed or missing, it is for the who fragment, no matter how many variation there is in the fragment, so I usually merge the cells of all variations for this failed sample.
4. % of success: this is quite easy #sample/#of failed+missing sequence for this fragment
5. # of variation is equal to the number of variations for this fragment (can be 0, 1, 2, etc.). When there is no variation in a fragment, I put '-- in all cells of the corresponding fragment on the "gene name" tab. Fragment 3 on my file is an example of 0 variation.
Is there a function to convert the data shown in table 1 to table 2 without rearranging the columns and rows? because i don't want to use TRANSPOSE. I want a function, somthing like SUMIF with OFFSET or INDEX and MATCH or any other function.
I have a large table that I want to reconstruct. For simplicity sake, let's just says it's 3 rows (excluding headers) by 3 columns.
Item Description 1/1/2014 1/2/2014 1/3/2014
Cheese Burgers 2 3 4
Hot Dogs 5 12 6
Beverages 2 5 3
I want to reconstruct it so that the column headers become values in the table. The table headers are dates, in this case, if that gives clearer picture. So the new table would have 9 rows, (3 rows of data, excluding the header times four columns).
Item Description Date Quantity
Cheese Burgers 1/1/2014 2
Hot Dogs 1/1/2014 5
The above example is sorted by date but I would be indifferent if it's sorted by the Item Description.
Is there an easy way to do this? Pivot possibly? Again, my data table is large: 36 rows x 181 columns. Using the copy/paste/transpose feature is pretty impractical.
I was wondering if there is any way possible to link your pivot table filters to filter the data the same way in the table that it comes from? So if i had date as one of my headers and i filtered the date to a specfifc date, is there a way to also filter the date in the data source sheet?
I did a data table yesterday and it worked. I tried again today and the results are incorrect. They are coming out as a constant (the same result as the original formula). Has anyone had this happen before and figured out how to fix? My spreadsheet is fairly complex. Does the data table formula need to refer to the "base" cells? For example, if the formula refers to cell F15, but in F15 the formula is +C15, does my data table formula need to use C15?
I have a table of data which represents data in different categories by week.
My ultimate goal is to have another table representing the data for each month - for instance - for each of the categories the data for :
06/04/2009 13/04/2009 20/04/2009 27/04/2009
is summed to make the data for the month of April.
The way I'm doing this at the moment is very long-winded
I'm using a whole new table - the size of the original weekly one - for each month. A calculation decides whether to effectively leave a cell blank or insert the appropriate data based on a date being within a particular range.
So in each "month table" there is the same list of week values:
06/04/2009 13/04/2009 20/04/2009 27/04/2009 04/05/2009 11/05/2009 etc.
but for each "month table" only the cells adjacent to the dates within the relevant month will return actual numerical values within them
This is an example of the forumula I am using in these tables: =IF(AND(($AD7>=MIN($AE$5,$AE$6)),$AD7<=MAX($AE$5,$AE$6)),$C7,"NA()")
Then a master table sums the totals for each month.
I want to be able to keep this table but get rid of the ones for every month as the sheet is getting unwieldy!
I have tried several times to attach the sheet for clarity but each time upon trying to "Submit New Thread " I am getting page not found errors - the sheet is only 133KB and I have tried zipping and sending also - I can't make it any smaller.
I have a Vlookup which I want to modify so that it can become dynamic as the table array part of the vlookup will change.
So the basic vlookup is as follows: =VLOOKUP($R$3,ATTRIBUTION_FACTSET!$M$60:$P$73,2,0) but the data I am looking for wont always be in the range M60:P73.
So I tried to make it dynamic by doing the following: =VLOOKUP($R$3,INDIRECT("ATTRIBUTION_FACTSET"&"!M"&U1&":P"&V1),2,FALSE) The idea being that U1 and V1 would be numbers that can change so in this case U1 would equal 60 and V1 would equal 73
This vlookup is giving me #N/A and no matter how I modify it I cannot get it to work.
I have a table thats acting as a database analysing player data and I have a second table in a report sheet based on the database table. In my report table I have a drop down with the player names at the top and I want the data cells underneath to populate based on that particular players data from the database.
