Excel 2010 :: Lookup Single Closest Match?

Apr 17, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 and need to create something like a histogram that will have large regions of null values. In other words, my histogram might look like this...

x x
x x x
100 250 420

[My laboriously drawn histogram does not display correctly. It is supposed to have 3 x's above 100, 2 x's above 250, and 5 x's above 420]

I have data in the form of:
Value Prob.
100 30%
250 20%
420 50%

I have Excel giving me a histogram that looks like this...
x x
[This histogram also didn't turn out. Again, it is supposed to be 3 vertical x's, 2 vertical x's, and 5 vertical x's]

What I have tried to do is to create a list based on the lowest and highest numbers (e.g., 100 and 420) and split that into equal increments. I then intended to use a VLOOKUP or something to pull back the probability associated with the number in my list nearest the data value I have.

I couldn't get VLOOKUP to work correctly, so was happy when I found the following thread on Ozgrid. [URL]

However, in each of the solutions listed in that thread, I get faulty results. I am attaching a file that shows the errors and what I am trying to get : Example.xlsx

Perhaps there is some easier way to do what I am attempting to do. This architecture makes sense to me, but sometimes the perfect solution doesn't make sense until I see it...

Lookup Closest Match

Nov 3, 2006

I am looking for a fourmla to return a value in a column next to the closest value. Yes, this would normally be a vlookup example however in my application the numbers will not match exact as such in an client lookup application. I need to find the closest value to the value compared in the range and return the value to the right of it.

I have made up a small table attached with comparing what vlookup gives me and what I am looking for.

Excel 2010 :: Lookup For Match Function

Jul 17, 2014

I think I need some version of a lookup for match function. Here is essentially what I need: I have a column of data points. I need to output every position at which the data point changes to a different value (going from top to bottom). See below for an example.

Here is some sample data (with column headers)

Data Pt



[Code] .......

Here is the result I need (I want to put a consistent formula into the second column below that returns the results shown in the second column below):

split 1 position

split 2 position

[Code] ........

Is what I am describing possible? Because I am inserting this into a template, I ideally need to do this outside of any sort of VBA work.

Match Upper Closest Value Using Index-Match

Jan 15, 2013

I couldn't resolve the formula of Index-Match for getting the values that matches the following criteria

1) Match the "Category" of Table 1 to Table 2

2) Match the "value" of Table 1 to Table 2, if value is not present in Table 2 take the upper closest value.

Once the above conditions are met, Take the Result from Table 2

Table 1 is for Input and Table 2 is for Database.

Please note that Data in Table 2 should not be sorted in any way. I tried to use the -1 option of the Match function for upper closest value but it didn't work out.

Have a look at the file attached : IndexMatchUpperClosestValue_AlongwithExactMatch.xlsx

Excel 2010 :: Multiple Formula For Single Cells?

Feb 18, 2014

I'd like to apply multiple formula to a set of cells on a summary page. My summary page also contains 3 variable dropdowns, and I'd like to display data based on the text selected in those dropdowns (pulling data from 2nd tab "Variables")

The following formula works in the first instance:

=IF(AND(H4="Product Type A1", H6="External", H8="Existing"), Variables!C4, 0)

What I'm struggling to do is add additional formula to the same cell in order to deal with the remaining eventualities of the drop down variables:

Variable 1:
Product Type A1
Product Type A2
Product Type B1
Product Type B2

Variable 2:

Variable 3:

Or am I better using a VLOOKUP or something?

Lookup Closest Value

Oct 2, 2007

I have a list of standard resistor values on a separate tab and I want to grab the closest one (either lower or higher, whichever is closest). If I calculate a number to be 8.9, I want it to grab 9.1 instead of 8.2 (which is what it's doing with VLOOKUP). Is there an easy way to find the minimum distance or something?

Closest Value Lookup In Table

May 22, 2014

I am looking for how to find a closest match for to a a given number in a table based on looking up the value of one cell to determine what column to look in, then compare the given number to the values in the column, and then return the value in a another column of the same row it finds the match in. Ive attached an d example.

The value in B2 is the value I am trying to find a closest match to. It first must determine which column to look in, and that is dictated by cell B3. So, since R-404a is entered in B3, column J is the column it looks in, and it returns 0.21, since it is the closest match .

Lookup Based On Closest Value?

May 8, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with column headings in Row 1, Column A-E of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50

I have values in Row 2 corresponding to the columns above of 25, 35, 45, 55, 65

in Row 2, column F, I have a value of 53.

What I need to do is look up the closest value to 53 in Row 2, but the lower of the value and place in G2.

For example, if I lookup 53 in Row 2, I want it to look at 45, and bring back the column heading of 30, and place in G2.

The formula you see below works great. It will lookup to the closest value that matches the criteria.


Here is the problem when I try to expand the range I get a zero.


Is there anyway we could overcome this?

I know I could use a formula array for this, but I would like to know if this could be done in a non-array formula ....

Find Closest Match To A Given Value

May 6, 2009

In the attached sheet, I am using !Staff times columns N and O to nominate a mid point break time relevant to the start,lunch break and finish times of a shift.

What I would like to do is match the result to the closest time from !Race Times Column D (highlighted green). So if for example the mid point of the shift is 10:37 (as in !Staff Times cell N23), it actually comes back with the !Race Times result of 10:35 which is the closest actual race.

Ideally I would like it to look both sides of the midpoint time until it came to the closest match, rather than always looking at an earlier time, or always a later time (eg the cell N79 has a value of 11:36, however the 2 race times are 11:35 and 11:40. Preference is it shows 11:35). If however the N79 result was 11:38 or 11:39, I would prefer it went to 11:40).

However if this is not possible then picking the next time in either direction will do.

VLOOKUP To Closest Match

Jun 17, 2009

I've got a vlookup function driven by the result of a simple equation.

=IF(C36="","---",VLOOKUP(C18/C39,'Engine & Configuration'!D1:G24,2,TRUE))

The issue I have is that I want the result to return the CLOSEST match, not an exact or rounded up match. For example, is my "C18/C39" equation returns a value of 1.000039, I want it to match with "1" in the array and not with 1.25. The FALSE option will not work because exact matches will be very rare.

The values in the array are not whole numbers, so I don't believe a ROUNDUP type code will help.

Excel 2010 :: Lookup With Different Columns

Mar 11, 2012

On my "Order" sheet, I enter an account no. that looks up the company name, address, etc on my "Accounts" sheet. Below the address info on the "Accounts" sheet is a list of the salespersons with their email address.

After entering the account no., I want to enter the salespersons name and automatically look up their email address. I can make the lookup function work if I tell the formula which column the salesperson is located in, but am lost how to write the formula to locate the salesperson based upon the column no. that contains their company info.

It's not pretty, but this works.


F1 - contains the account no. entered on the order sheet.

Accounts!A1:Z100 - range containing columns of account info.

ORDER!G9 - This is the row number value I obtained by using a match function to lookup the Salespersons name entered in cell F8, then I add 1 to render the value of the row that contains the email address located directly below the salespersons name.


Herein lies my issue, the salesperson name will not always be in Column B

I can write another Match to obtain the column no, but then I am using another cell to hold a calculated value for my lookup statement.

Excel 2010

In words, Find Mary Smiths email address, she works at the company with the account number in cell F1 on the order sheet.

Excel 2010 :: Add Single Record To Multiple Column Listbox In A Loop From Array

Mar 19, 2014


I have an array PeopleList(6,320) that contains

PersonID, FirstName, LastName, Email, Phone, Notes

What I'm trying to do. I have two separate requirements:

(1) To add the whole array to a listbox on form initialization - see Sub UserForm_Initialize()
(2) To clear the listbox and re-add only certain items based on what's typed in a textbox - see Sub txtSearchTerm_Change()

I have two errors:

Error 1 in UserForm_Initialize()

The listbox contents need transposing! It is displaying as

1 2 3 4 5
Tom Ben Heidi Julie Mark
Smith Jones Evans Simpson Petersen
x@yo.com a@bo.com c@do.com e@fo.com g@ho.com
02071001022 02071001026 02071001027 02071001028 02071001029

When it should be displaying as
1 Tom Smith x@yo.com 02071001022 Friend
2 Ben Jones a@bo.com 02071001026

Is there a way to transpose the array?

Error 2 in txtSearchTerm_Change()

I cannot find anywhere - even on MSDN - all the information I need how to correctly add a single record to a multiple-column listbox! What I'm trying is:

For i = 0 To UBound(SearchList) If InStr(1, SearchList(i), SearchTerm) 0 Then
With lstPeople
For j = 0 To UBound(PeopleList, 1)
.List(c, j).Value = PeopleList(j, i)

[Code] ......

How do I add a record to the listbox????

Full code for reference:

Option Explicit

Private PeopleList As Variant
Private SearchList As Variant
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

Vlookup Returning The Closest Match Down

Dec 8, 2009

I'm using vlookup to get a price for a unit of measure and it passes the value of the lesser not the greater. Is there anyway to get vlookup to pick the closest match as the greater value not the lesser one?

For example:
1000 units costs $8,000
4000 units cost $23,000
12000 units cost $68,000

If someone wants to buy 2500 units, I'd like the vlookup to pass the price based on 4000 units, but it passes 8,000 the value on 1000 units.

Can I use vlookup to give me the result of the greater unit not the lesser?

Formula To Return Closest Match

May 30, 2014

I am trying to find a closest match for a given value comparing to values in a chart. I got it to work..but it will only return a closest value that less than it. I need it to also look "up", and return a value higher than it if it is closer. I have attached the worksheet. The vlookup part is for choosing which row to use, based on the value in B1. The column index portion of the vlookup is where the trouble lies....I am comparing the value found it B2 to chose the column...and that column should be the closest value...but like I said before, it will only return a lower value. The formula is in cell B11 (Correction Factor). it SHOULD return 1.26....instead, its giving me 1.18. (200 is closer to 192 than 175 is)

VLOOKUP Closest Match Not Close Enough

Dec 13, 2005

I'm comparing one string array with another using VLOOKUP. About half
the list matches exactly if I use FALSE in the Range_Lookup. On the
items that don't match I used TRUE in the Range_Lookup but found it
doesn't get the closest match. See example:

Test Table Array

Lookup Value = AAACCCCC

VLOOKUP returns 1st item in Table (AAABBBCCC) ????????????

Of course item 2 (AAACCCCCC) is the better match but VLOOKUP doesn't
see it that way.

Does anyone know of a way around this problem? Maybe a character by
character match function that returns the item that matchs the most
number of correct characters?

Closest Match: Unsorted Data

Oct 26, 2006

problem is the data I receive does not always have the same time stamps


next time maybe


What I was doing originially in my userform was allowing form the user to input the starting time (without having to know the exact time) example 22:00. This works but the problem is when they enter the approximate end time 3:00. Without sorting the data how do I get the ending time to match the approximate time if the time doesn't exist in the data. I was using the Match function and the defined data range with 1 (i.e. Match(value, range, 0)). This works for the starting time but not the stop time since the data is not in ascending order.

I have a spreadsheet with two sheets, 'Sheet0' & 'Sheet1'. In 'Sheet0' I have a column named 'A_Sheet0' containing a list of numbers from Rows 2 - 50. In 'Sheet1' I have 3 columns, the first containing numbers 1 to 50, the second, 'B_Sheet1' containing a list of ascending numbers and the third is the column of interest. This column entitled 'Nearest Value' must read the corresponding value of Column 'B_Sheet1' then find the closest number to that from the numbers in 'Sheet0', column 'S_Sheet0'.

I have included a sample file with this thread, and in the 'Nearest Value' column I have manually input some of the nearest values for your information.
