# Excel 2007 :: Match Data In Two Columns And Return Header

Apr 20, 2012

I have two columns with team abbreviations, one simply says whether they are AL or NL the other is the result of a search with multiple occurrences of the team name. I need to match the long list with the short and put the column header AL or NL in the adjacent cell.

I'm using Excel 2007

The last formula I tried was =INDEX(\$AY\$1,MATCH(BB2,\$AY\$2:\$AY\$15,0),0)

The screen shot actually just part of the sheet copied since the screen shot look like a broken html page Ok I give up. I copy and paste a jpg it turns into code, I copy and paste the spreadsheet and formatting vanishes, I don't have a URL for the picture... I did look at FAQs and didn't find picture rules but I will look again. Meanwhile. . .

It's just six columns of data. The short list is in AY from AY2 : AY15
The long list is in BB from BB2:BB505
The column header "AL" is in AY1 and NL is in AZ1

## Excel 2007 :: Using INDEX And MATCH Function To Return Header Value

Mar 26, 2013

currently using Excel 2007 with Windows Vista.

I currently have a worksheet where I want to input a date (G2) and a rank value (H2) ranging from 1 to 4. The header value (B1:E1) corresponding to the date (A2:A4) and the rank (B2:B4) should be returned to I2 (currently returns #NA).

Using formula: =INDEX(\$B\$1:\$E\$1,MATCH(H2,INDEX(\$B\$2:\$E\$4,MATCH(G2,\$A\$2:\$A\$4),)))

which I found under: Find row, find value, then return column heading

However, the above formula does not seem to work with my date order or recurring data values of 1 to 4 over the 3 rows.

The worksheet layout is as follows:

Date

A

B
C
D

Date

Rank

Header

[code]....

The return value under Header should be C.

I have reversed the order of the dates and put sequential numbers in B2:B4 as plug variables and the above formula will return the correct Header value but I need the formula to work with the current date order and repeating rank values of 1 to 4 in B2:B4. Do not wish to use VBA.

## Excel 2007 :: How To Protect Inserted Header Data

Dec 3, 2012

I'm using Excel 2007. I know how to protect specific cells within a worksheet, but I have not been able to find any information online pertaining to locking or protecting inserted header/footer data, even if I protect the worksheet.

I'm not concerned about setting specific VBA commands to ensure the header/footer prints, but rather preventing other users from being able to edit the data upon distribution of the worksheet.

## Excel 2010 :: Match 1 Cell And Column In Sheet 1 To 2 Columns In Sheet 2 Return Data From A 3rd

Jul 23, 2012

I have 2 workbooks in Excel 2010, each contain just 1 sheet. (see attached) I need to compare on sheet 1, cell D1 and column A:A (this column will be much longer), with the data in columns C:C & A:A on sheet 2, if a corresponding match is found, the data contained in column D on the same row on sheet 2 is written to the cell with the matching data in sheet 1.

My attempt is in cell D2 on sheet1.

## Match Data From 2 Columns And Then Return Value From A 3rd One

Oct 4, 2008

1. i am comparing text
2. i have >100 countries, and with vlookup i have to type every single one, and this is what i want to escape (mb i need to refer to an array, or string, or no idea)
3. mb a solution could be sth with index, or match, i just tried it, copying some similar formula from www, but it didn't match the countries, and return the value respective for that country.

E.g. I have China in col1 (1st file), #employees 10 in col2 (1st file), and China in Col 1 in 2nd file. So, a formula should match China & China from both files, and return 10 as number of employees.

## Index / Match Return Header Value Based On Row And Cell Value

Apr 24, 2012

I have a rather large table that I need to return the column heading from.

Within the table I have a list of Names in the left most Column (A) and a list of Percentiles in the header row (row 2) (incrementing by 5%). By inputting the name and a cell value I am trying to return the column header.

Using an example;

5% 10% 15%
Bob 3.5 4.1 4.15
John 3.6 4.2 4.30
Chris 3.3 4.9 4.95
Sammy 3.7 4.6 4.7

Like I said, knowing the name and the cell value, I want to return the percentage value. So for example, Bob would be one input value, and another input value would be 4.1. I would want excel to return 10%.

I have found different suggestions using a combination of index/match but even using these functions I cannot get it to return the COLUMN value instead of a cell value.

## Find Min Value In Multiple Columns And Match The Header

Jun 1, 2007

I am trying to find min value for a row (product price) within two columns (price lists) and return row one (company name) in third column ( see the attachmet). My first idea was to use “min” and “if” but a problem occur when there are text or zero or none values in the price list. I tried with conditional formatting, offset function, match-index and other methods without success

## Find Matches In Multiple Columns And Return Header

Oct 29, 2012

Lets see if I can put this into words.

I am trying to find matches of a specific cell in various columns. Example:

Header 1 -------Header 2----------Header 3
-ABC123-----------abc123--------------abd123
-abd123-----------hjk321---------------hdn234
-Abc123-----------dsd123--------------sds332

If I searched for the value "abc123" I want it to return Headers 1 and 2 in a seperate column. It would not matter if the same value is in one column multiple times

So the results would show me the Column Heading for anything that reads: "abc123", "ABC123", "AbC123", "aBC123"

Is this possible?

## Excel 2007 :: Macro - Match Data And Copy Rows To Existing Sheet

Jan 11, 2012

I've already found a TON of threads about this process but nothing that matches specifically what I'm trying to do.

I have a spreadsheet that I'm using to auto fill other tabs with data that only matches specific criteria. Here's what I'm looking to do:

Columns I, J, K, and L may be marked as either Y or N (or blank). I have different sheets that require 1, 2, 3, or 4 of those columns to match Y. For example, on sheet 2 I want to copy the entire row if there's a "Y" match on column I and J. On sheet 3 I want to match "Y" against, I, J, and K. Sheet 4 I need to match only L, etc.

I need the data copied into the existing sheets to start on row 7. I have other data on rows 1-6 that cannot be moved.

I'm running Excel 2007.

## Excel 2007 :: VBA For Print Header For Multiple Sheets From One Source Sheet (but Not All)

Apr 18, 2013

I am working on a "3 worksheet" excel workbook. The first worksheet does not require any header.

I'd like to enter data into the second sheet (say cells A1 and B1), and use VBA to pull from those cells to generate the same custom header for both the second and third worksheets.

For example, I'd like the header to pull "# 123456" from cell A1, and "789" from B1 in sheet two, putting them in a centered header for both sheets two and three (same reference cells from sheet two for both, not new values of A1 and B1 from sheet 3 for sheet 3 header). I'd like to format in a way that looks something like this:

#123456

789

I'm currently running Excel 07, and was able to pull from a cell on one worksheet into that sheet's header but couldn't get it to span multiple sheets.

## Excel 2003 :: Index And Match - Table With Header Row Of Scores

Oct 4, 2013

Excel 2003

I have a table with a header row of scores 1-10 in B4:K4.

In column A I have a list of locations A5:A68. People in each location were asked to score an event between 1 and 10. The count of their scores is under B4:K4, eg Location 1, 3 people scored 1 (entered in B5), none scored 2 (C5), 6 scored 3 (D5) etc through to the score for 10 in K5.

What I am after is the average for each location so that in L5 I can say 'for all the respondents for Location 1, the average was:...

This may be a bit more complicated than it appears as presumably there will be a requirement to multiply the number of respondents by their scores and then ... ?

## Excel 2013 :: Highlight Cells If Data In 2 Columns Match

May 27, 2014

Please see the attached example. I'm trying to highlight cells only if 2 values in the row match 2 values in another row. If a book title/author combination matches that of another title/author combination in a different row, it would highlight. Some alternate rows will contain different titles by the same author, and some rows will have like titles by different authors...but they should not highlight.

The only situation where highlighting would occur is if the title/author pairing appears in another row.

I'm trying to decide if this would be a conditional formatting/highlighting rule, or if it would be a macro/vbs?

I'm using Excel 2013.

## Create PivotTable With Two Columns Of Data For The Same Column Header?

Dec 24, 2012

Can I create a PivotTable with two columns of data for the same Column header?

I have created a PivotTable in Excel 2003 with months for rows and cities for columns. I would like to have TWO columns of data for each city. The two data columns are: Average House Selling Price, and Number of Houses Sold. When I put both of these data fields into the PivotTable Wizard, they are listed below each other so that each Month occupies two rows, but each city occupies one column. I want the two data fields beside each other so that each month only occupies one row, but there are two data columns for each City.

## Match Cells In 2 Columns And Return Third Column Value If Equal

Dec 24, 2013

I have 2 sheets with thousands of clients. One has client contact information and one revenue. I was able to put the 4 columns on 1 sheet. I need a formula that will say if the value of the client name columns match, (Client name) then return the value in the third column (revenue).

One other question, b/c i copied from a pivot table, i have the client name and their email address below in a separate row. Ideally i would have the client their contact and their revenue in 3 columns next to each other. Is there an easy way to bulk move the email address from the row below the column to the column next to the client name?

## Macro To Copy Data From All Columns Containing Header To A Single Column In Workbook

Apr 11, 2014

I am a macro newbie and I think this is beyond me.

I've been trying all morning with no success to make a macro that will copy data from all columns of one workbook containing specified header text to a single column in a different workbook.

So for example, I've got a workbook called coupon barcodes that has multiple tabs for each person redeeming coupons on sheets 2-88 (sheet one can be skipped) and some of the columns are labeled "voucher 1" in cell A4 or B4 or C4 etc. with a list of all the coupon barcodes that customer redeemed below that. I want all of the data from all of the columns in this workbook that have the header "voucher 1" to be copied and pasted into one column (order doesn't matter) also labeled "voucher 1" in another workbook I have open called vouchering database.

There must be a way to do this that is easier than searching the internet all afternoon again
