# Excel 2010 :: VLookup To Return 2nd Matching Value

Mar 10, 2012
Is is possible to construct a vlookup to identify that there are duplicate values in the Lookup_value and the Table_array and return the second and third values in the Formula result?

In the acutal project the Lookup_values and Table_arrays are in separate worksheets, but I think the example below represents the issue I'm working with.

I'm using Excel 2010

ABCDEFG1=SUM(IF($A$2:$A$8=A2,1,0))=VLOOKUP(F2,$A$2:$B$8,2,FALSE)

I am trying to create a formula for a work report and I am afraid I am a bit of a novice with the more complex formulas. Here is what I am trying to do: Sheet 1 has Sales order numbers that duplicate based on the sales lines. Sheet 2 has single lines of sales order numbers and their assigned PO number. I would like to have Sheet 3 where it combines all data and duplicates and fills in the PO number to match all of the sales order numbers that repeat on the other sheet. I hope this makes sense. I can't seem to figure out if I need a VLookup or If or Match formula (or all of the above).

I am using Office 2010. I have a list of names in column A and a list of URLs in column B and I'm trying to find which ones have a match or partial match at least.

ex. (the name is in column A and the URL is in column B)

1 youtube www.youtube.com

2 Mr excel www.mrexcel.com

3 Wine Lover www.winelovers.com

4 Brian Jones www.ilovecats.com

In the example, I would like to highlight (or something) #s 1,2,3 as matches.

I have a column of Dates in Col B with corresponding X values in Col C. I specify a start date in Cell F14 and an end date in Cell F16. I then use the function shown in cell H6 to identify the starting row number (corresponding to start date) in Cell F6. If I used the same function to identify the end row (in this case 4/2/13), it would choose row 8 which is the first row in which it encounters that date. Unfortunately, I need the end row to identify the last row that date appears in. In this case, that would be row 11.

I'm using Excel 2010 and I have a copy of an address in Excel. I'm trying to identify all the people who live by themselves- without partners and spouses.

I have a column array like this:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T

PDENOStatusTitleFirst NamesInitialsSurnameSuffixDate of AttainmentFranchise FlagAddress 1Address 2Address 3Address 4Address 5Address 6Address 7Address 8Address 9Postcode

And the relevant columns is usually L. I am trying to figure out the formula that allow me to extract or at least highlight the people who live by themselves- or alternatively the people who live in the same house (which would therefore identify by exclusion the singletons).

Excel 2010: I'm working with a sheet where I would like to get accurate results on the make and model of cars sold in a given week. The workbook contains several worksheets each representing weekly sales numbers for different vehicles.

The Make-Models tab has the lists used to create the drop-down selections.

The Sales tab allows one to create an ad hoc report on the total number of vehicles sold, by Make and Model. Cell B2 is named 'SelectedModel' and used in the formula found in column E, Total Sold.

Problem: When I select Honda, for example in B2 of the Sales worksheet then select Accord in cell B3 of the same. The results returned in E2, E3 and E4 are 2, 3 and 4, respectively, instead of 8, 3 and 7.

2 Honda Accords were sold on Monday and 6 on Tuesday of the same week. My formula is only returning the first matched value of 2 whereas I would like it to return 2+6, 8 for week 1. Same goes for other weeks.

Select any other make and model and notice the problem follows. I believe the error is due to incorrect usage of the formula or incorrect formula altogether.

IF(ISNA(INDEX(Week1!E:E,MATCH(SelectedModel,Week1!B:B,0))),0,

INDEX(Week1!E:E,MATCH(SelectedModel,Week1!B:B,0)))

The for loop don't work in my excel 2010 macro. Probably the problem might be the Range("Fi") construct with the variable "i"?

Dim i As Integer

For i = 4 To 10004

Cells(i, 63).Select

Cells(i, 63) = Application.VLookup(Sheets(3).Range("Fi"), Sheets(4).Range("F:AY"), 45, False)

Next i

Im trying to write a code in vba in Excel 2010 that would incorporate the vlookup function in excel.

My Data Looks like this:

List 1Weight 1List 2Weight 2List 3Weight 3List 4Weight 4a2.00%j20.00%a14.00%p2.00%b4.00%k32.00%d2.00%y3.00%

c7.50%e10.00%g14.00%u6.00%d8.00%d15.00%h20.00%h7.00%e9.00%q13.00%y45.00%f8.00%f20.00%r5.00%q5.00%

d9.00%g35.00%n5.00%t10.00%h10.00%r14.00%i4.50%w15.00%b0.18Z0.04S0.04Total100.00%Total100.00%Total100.00%100.00%

Where I have X number of Lists, each composed of two columns. The 1st column has the name of each item in each list, and the 2nd column has the value for that item.

What I'd like to do is create a function that would let me choose two lists, and tell me the amount of items in List X and what their values are in List Y, and then total them. Also, I would like it to work the opposite way, and tell me the amount of items in List Y and what their values are in List X, and then total them.

So for example, If I wanted to look at lists 1 and 2, the function would calculate that for List 1, Items D & E are found in List 2 and have a total value of 25%. For List 2, Items D&E are found in List 1 and have a total value of 17%. For all items not in both lists, it would return values of 0.

The code I came up with so far looks like this:

Function AK_Overlap_Go(x, y)

Dim Temp(1 To 2, 2 To 1)

Dim x As Integer

[Code]...

One of the problems I'm having is that the lists contain a different # of items, and so I think I need to loop the vlookup for each row. However, I'm not sure how to do that and get the cumulative values for each list.

I have a table in columns A-D. I am trying to perform a vlookup to return the first non-blank in columns B-D based on the lookup value in column A. Columns F-I are what I am looking for the formula to do. I think I am close with the following array formula but not quite there.

Excel 2010LMN12#N/A3Sheet1Array FormulasCellFormulaM2{=INDEX($B$2:$D$9,MATCH($F$2,$A$2:$A$9,FALSE),

MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(INDEX($B$2:$D$9,MATCH($F$2,$A$2:$A$9,FALSE),0)<>"",),FALSE))}Entered with Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

If entered correctly, Excel will surround with curly braces {}.

Note: Do not try and enter the {} manually yourself

We have a business system which has some very disjointed reporting. To fix this I have multiple extracts that are then combined into a single report. I then add Year & Period from a lookup of a date in a particular field. Unfortunately most values are returned as #N/A but if I manually go into the sheet and select an offending cell and click then magically the formula then corrects itself.

So I thought I would be clever and use Sendkeys {F2} as part of my code. Unfortunately this is a bit hit & miss as it works on some but not on others. Also the Sendkeys piece repeats itself leaving my frontsheet a 1000 rows from the start. This is easily fixed by selecting cell A1as the last step.

My question is there methods in VBA by not using sendkeys that will achieve the same result and is consistent. I am using Excel 2010.

Code:

Sub Add_Calendar()

Dim cell As Object, c As Range

'setup for calendar data population

' Range("H1") = "Created Date"

Range("N1") = "Year"

Range("O1") = "Period"

'copy the format

I have Excel 2010 & Windows 7

I am using the following formula to copy the name of the tab - =MID(CELL("filename",C26),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,6)

I have a marco that creates a tab from a Master file, and I need to copy the name of the tab into cell A2, using the formula above. Then I use a vlookup on this cell, to get the data needed for about 10 other fields. I have these vlookups in the Master file. The vlookup doesn't work all the time. I get a #NA answer. Sometimes it does work. When I manually type in the project number on the tab, the vlookups work.

Sample of the vlookup: =VLOOKUP(A2,'AC-Program'!$A$1:$H$58600,2,0)

I was trying to find a way to use a value in cell A2 instead of the formula above, but I don't want to have to manually update it, I need it to be generated when the Marco generates the tabs.

Here is my macro:

Sub CreateSheetsFromAList()

Dim ws1 As Worksheet

Set ws1 = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Master")[code]......

Is there a way to add this function into this macro, and it will leave this field as a value instead of a formula?

Excel 2010. I have two very large tables of data:

Table 1 is a long list of unique items in no particular order, each of which belongs to a unique group of items, for example:

ItemsGroup ID

apple

pear

grape

fig

banana

guava

peach

mango

Table 2 lists all the Group ID numbers and in the same row as each Group ID number, shows the names of all the items belonging to that group, one item in each column. Different Groups have different numbers of items in them. For example:

Group IDItem1 Item2 Item3 etc.

214applepeargrape

33fig

7bananaguava

59peachmango

Is there a formula I can use in the second column of Table 1 to look for each item in Table 2 and tell me what group it is in? For example for "apple" or "pear" or "grape" it would look in Table 2 and return the Group ID number "214".

I have row 2 formatted as a fraction and row 1 formatted as percentage.

I am looking for way to return the percentage of row 2 in row 1. I.E. If i have 3/4 in a2, I want it to return 75% in a1. I have figured a formula to return a percentage for numbers with only 1 item to the left of the division sign (i.e., 3/4). That correctly returns 75%. I am struggling with working a formula to also return larger numbers (e.g. 12/15).

I have the following data in column H ....

Excel 2010H2Ms L Sentinella3Mr R and Mrs A Agarwal4Dr H M Bingham and Mrs G M VersaceSheet1

I would like to return (into columns I and J) only the surnames that exist in each cell, so it would return something like this ...

Excel 2010HIJ2Ms L SentinellaSentinella3Mr R and Mrs A AgarwalAgarwal4Dr H M Bingham and Mrs G M VersaceBinghamVersaaceSheet1

Notice, there are two surnames in H4, so one of the surnames would be returned into I4 and the other one into J4.

I'm able to write formula to strip out everything and return the surname but only if there's one surname in the cell, I can't figure how to do it when there are two.

I am working with an Excel 2010 workbook that has two worksheets in it. What I am trying to accomplish is I want the second worksheet to scan the first worksheet for a student's name, and count all of the instances that the student has a score less than a certain threshold (we'll say "5" for this example). I have tried using various combinations of vlookup and countif functions, but have not had much success. I did get it to a point where it worked, but only for the first instance of that student's name; it wouldn't continue searching the first worksheet for any other instances.

I have attached a sample workbook as a reference : Sheet1.xlsx

There is a formula

=vlookup(a1,Named_Range,2,false)

if I change a value in the range named "Named_Range" this vlookup does not update.

This formula works but does not allow for any updates. Meaning the vlookup returns the original value even after a cell has been changed. "Named_Range" is on a different sheet but in the same workbook.

Auto calculate is on. I have recalculated the cell manually. I have Office 2010

I am using the this formula to look up data using 0 to show not found. VLOOKUP is acting case sensitive. The Master Array data is in caps and the input is in lower case. There are no spurious spaces. Here are the results:

Code Name

0 River Branch Foundation = not found

X RIVER BRANCH FOUNDATION = found - in array as caps

The formula:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B2,'[Master Array - 2012.xlsx]Master Array'!$A$2:$B$3053,2,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(B2,'[Master Array - 2012.xlsx]Master Array'!$A$2:$B$3054,2,FALSE))

I have excel 2010....

I am having problems creating a chart off of the following data. Each of the cells which have a numerical value are v-lookuping from another sheet. It needs to remain this way as when I switch brands (through data validation), the numbers will update and the chart should as well. Right now, the chart shows these values as zero. I have done this a million times in excel 2007, but now with 2010, I keep having this problem

I am looking up the largest value across various sheets (1 to 99) with the following formula:

=LARGE('1:99'!$B$1:$B$50;$C3)

That correctly returns the largest value in range B1:B50 across sheets 1 to 99.

However now I want to know the sheet name of the value above in a seperate cell, let say in: A3.

I have my data arranged in a table on sheet1 as shown below.

Columns B to H contain the hours each person normally works on the days of the week Sun to Sat. In columns I to O are the hours that each person has booked as holiday for that week.

On sheet2 I would like to be able to enter a holiday day in C1. In A3 to A15 I would then have a list of all the people who will be working on that day and in C3 to C15 have a list of the people who are on holiday so the output on sheet 2 would look like this.

Basically I'm after the formulas for A3 and C3 that can be copied down the column depending on how big my table gets. I am using Excel 2010.

I need a formula or array to perform the following in Excel 2010:

I have 2 worksheets "Master Report" and "Free text comments". The master report will be shaed with individuals but the Free Text comments worksheet will not.

sample feedback report.xlsx

In cells D2 downwards on the "Master Report" I want to show the individual feedback comments from the "Free Text comments" worksheet that have been made by other people for the individual named in cell A2 on the "Master Report" worksheet. So on James' master report it would show the 8 individual comments listed for him on the Free text comments" worksheet.

I have searched the internet and tried various combos of lookups, IFs, index and match but have not come across the right formula yet.

I've got an old Excel sheet with Stephen Bullen's function for returning the active filter criteria (Rob on Programming: Excel: Displaying Autofilter Criteria). My status sheet may be filtered in multiple ways, and when the user is happy with the filter selections, she can create a powerpoint file with a graph and a summary of the filtered table. As we are using Excel 2010, users are very likely to select more than two filters.

Example: Range A1:E100 has the following headers: Field, Installation, Project,Type, Phase.

The controller wants to filter on:

Field equals north or south or west Phase equals completed

The manager for Field South wants to filter on:

Field equals southType equals maintenance or repair or modification Installation begins with Zeus.

As the filters are not shown when I copy the table to powerpoint, I would like to create a summary of the user's active filters that is pasted into a sheet (for subsequent copying to powerpoint). For the users in the example above, that table would look something like this:

Controller:

Active filters

Field: north, south, west

Phase: completed

Manager, Field South:

Active filters

Field: south

Type: maintenance, repair, modification

Installation: Zeus*

I've looked at various functions intended to take Stephen Bullen's code into Excel 2010's multiple criteria world (e.g. this: User Defined Function to Display AutoFilter Criteria for More Than Two Criteria in Excel 2007 / Excel 2010), but I have not been able to convert it to a functioning macro.

Any code that could be used for this sort of task, or any tips for relevant code?

2) how about the most recent date ?

I've got 3 columns of formulas that end up doing what I need, but I'm thinking it could probably be done easier with VBA.

I have 1 book with a sheet I'll call Log & another book with a sheet I'll call Source. On the Log, column E has the first 9 characters of vendor names & /vendor number (ex: EDMUND FI/00250), along with other data out through column P. On Source, the vendor names are in C & a short code for their name is in A.

I need to compare the first 9 characters in Log col E with the first 9 characters in Source col C. When a match is found, I need to return the short code from Source col A. BUT - if there's a duplicate in either Source col C or A, instead I need to return the word VERIFY, preferably with the cell highlighted in red.

Right now, I have, on Source col L:

Code:

=MID(C2,1,9)

and in source M:

Code:

=IF(OR(A2=A1,A2=A3,L2=L1,L2=L3),"VERIFY",A2)

This gives me the first 9 characters of the vendor name in L & the short code OR VERIFY in M

Then, in Log col R, I have an array formula:

Code:

=VLOOKUP(MID(E4,1,9),'[PRETICKET P ADDRESSES working.xls]Paddress'!$L:$M,2,FALSE)

This gives me either the short code or VERIFY from Source M. Also, sometimes it doesn't find a match & it returns #N/A. Then I have to do Conditional Formatting to make the VERIFY cells red & I thought I'd make the error cells be yellow (although I haven't figured out the CF for that yet)

Is there a better way to do this with VBA? I'm working with Excel 2010; just got it & still figuring it out.

I deal with a rather large excel database (the range is A1:AV168266) that contains customer information. Some of these various customers are affiliated with a group called "ascend" and I need to be able to filter all my list by every customer affilliated with Ascend. The trouble is that the word "ascend" can appear in 8 different columns and usually when it appears in one column it doesn't appear in the others and their can also be more text in the cell beyond the word "ascend". I want to create a formula that will simply look for the word "ascend" in any cell of a row and return a result I can filter by. I will be putting the formula in column AW and put it in all 170,000 rows of that column, that way I can just filter by a single column.

I've played around with combining COUNTIF with SEARCH and MATCH with SEARCH but nothing seems to work.

So in my excel document I have it such that on the first sheet (Labeled 'Sorted') the data is set up as follows: LOCATION, EXTENSION, NAMEWith the appropriate data under each header. On the second sheet (Labeled 'Locations_Ext') I have a named range called Locations; it contains extensions from a separate document, names of people associated with the extensions from the document, and their locations on the map. I am trying to have it such that the excel matches the extension number given on the first sheet with the ones that I extracted from the document on the second and output the location into the first column on the first sheet. The code I have set up for that process is:

=VLOOKUP(B(//SomeValue),Locations,1,FALSE)

I then want the excel to cross check the information that I took from the Visio to see if the visio is up to date with the latest info we have received (Which is the data on the first page under Extension and Name). The code:

=IF(C(//SomeValue)=VLOOKUP(B(//SomeValue),Locations,3,False),"Good","Error")

Both codes seem to be giving me this: #N/A as the results for every cell.. I'm using MS 2010
