I need to find which number in a row would be closest to zero, then display the associated name. The number can be negative. I used this, which works well if all the numbers are positive: =INDEX($C$1:$E$1,MATCH(MIN(C66:E66),C66:E66,0)). I'm running into a problem when the closest number is negative.
Say i had a col of random numbers, and their corresponding probabilities of occurring;
Neglect the nature of the sample, its just gibberish and not of concern here. The question is, if i enter a value in column C, how do i find the closest corresponding number to it in col A, and subsequently return its nearest corresponding probability from col B? For example, say i entered 8 in C1, then the formula would need to find the closest number to 8 in col A, which is 7, and return from col B the value of 0.001636.
I am working on payment/cost estimator and am looking for some ideas and formula or macro help. Basically what I am trying to do is set up a calculator where you would input the payment you could afford and it will tell you how much you can spend on the equipment. The problems I am running into are that when you factor in the interest rate and commission, the payments are round numbers so I need the formula to find the closest value. Example- $250 payment. The payments in the table w/ the interest rates are $158, $248 and $350. I would need it to pick the corresponding equipment cost for the $248 payment.
Make sense? If a macro would be easier I am fine with that, just have limited experience setting one up.
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.
I have a list of numbers Example: 8.325,8.2,8.075,7.95,7.825,7.7,7.575,7.45,7.325,7.2,7.075,6.95,6.825,6.7,6.575,6.45,6.325,6.2,6.075,5.95,5.825,5.7,5.575 ,5.45,5.325 ect
Then I have a formula solving for a number, but I may get 6.00, which is not in my list. I want to have a "seek down" and display 5.95 (as it is in the list) and not 6.00. I will always seek for a lower number. Is this possible with a formula.
I have a list with all our company cars (300). I also have a list with all the transactions of the fuel cards (12000 lines). Now I need the find for every company car (exact match) the nearest fuel-consumption-date (closest match to the given starting date) and take the mileage of that transaction. I've added an example. I have tried linking carnr and date (like carnr&"#"&date) and match these, but I don't always get the right car number.
I have a database where I have groups defined. For example, Parent 0001 is called Bag1. It contains an apple, orange, grape, and a pear. Parent 0002 is called Bag2, containing an apple, orange, and a peach. So on and so on...
Below is an illustration of what I explained above:
I have modified some code I found in these forums that once I enter a value in a cell I can have it find the closest match to that value and scroll down the list and paste that value as an offset. The code works perfectly, but my data will often contain the same values repeated and these aren't duplicates and I need to know how to loop the code to ensure it doesn't just find the first value but also the second (if the first is already populated) Code is:
Sub findclose() Dim rng As Range, Dn As Range, Mx As Single, oAd As String Dim num As Range
Set num = ActiveSheet.Range("B1")
---- What I need to do is insert a loop of some sort that basically says IF my offset cell has a value then to find the next closest amount and continue the macro.
So if my list was:
700 50 500 600 500
And I wanted to find 499 then my list would look like:
700 50 500 499 600 500
BUT if I wanted to match off another amount of 501 it would keep the 499 it found and then find the 501 making the completed list look like:
700 50 500 499 600 500 501
Right now the amounts are being overidden as I don't know how to loop it...
I have a sheet of pump test results, placed in rows, where the test rig is set at a specific speeds and flow and it records pressure. At each stage of the test a number of snapshots will be taken (Usually between 3-5 at each stage), so I have 3-5 rows of very similar data. I only need to use the best row from the selection available, so I am hoping to find a formula or code (Don't care which) that can look at the results and select the row of readings where the speed AND the flow are closest to the targetted data.
For example: In cells G6:G8 I have flow result values 0.129, 0.151, 0.156 and in H6:H8 I have speed result values 72.536, 71.82, 72.13. These are actuals. In cell N6 I have the target speed (75) and in O6 I have flow target (0.15), but these could be moved anywhere to suit really. What I was hoping to do, but am struggling big time, was to just flag up the row of readings where these two values are closest to the targets by placing a check mark in column L:L which I have formatted in monotype sorts and would like to place a "4" (Which gives me a check mark) on the 'best' row. From that I can do more with some simple IF statements.
Is this feasible, or am I trying to do something beyond Excels capability, it is certainly beyond mine at the moment. I was looking at the check mark method, but that is not essential, so if anyone has any suggestions on an alternative means of identifying the best row of data, that might make it easier to do, then I am listening.
I'm looking for a way to split a cell with text into two cells. The first cell can only contain up to 40 characters, the rest needs to go in the second cell. However, I don't want the text to be split in the middle of a word. So basically, if the text is in cell A1, I need to find the closest space to the left of position 40 in A1, and move anything to the right of this position to B1. Example:
Original text: A1: One green apple and a bucket of small onions that smell nice
I want to avoid this: A1: One green apple and a bucket of small on B1: ions that smell nice
I want to achieve this: A1: One green apple and a bucket of small B1: onions that smell nice
I have Excel 2010 & Window 7. I have 2 sheets of business names, some businesses in sheet 1 may be named slightly different in sheet 2 and not all businesses in sheet 1 are included in sheet 2. I would like to be able to find the closest match (from sheet 2) for the businesses on sheet 1 and return the closest matched business name.
Close Price Close Price Date s1s2s3s4r1r2r3r4 2.25 12/11/09 2.30 12/12/09 2.40 12/13/09 2.00 12/14/09 2.12 12/15/09 2.50 12/16/09 2.51 12/17/09 2.53 12/18/09 2.49 12/19/09
What I'm attempting to do is find what are the CLOSEST four indicator prices in data set #1 are above (r1, r2, r3, r4) and below (s1, s2, s3, s4) the closing price in data set #2. Also, I can only use the indicator numbers in data set #1 that are on or before the close price date in data set #2. Because of this, not all of the r's and s's will be filled in.
I would like to use just regular excel formulas, but I have a feeling that VBA may be my only option.
I have the following table of stocks with corproate action types and dates with a ticker / identifier per stocA1:
Type B1: ID C1: Date
I am trying to find the NEXT Dividendcorporate action that is CLOSEST to the current date. I've done some google trawling and found a few formulae that seem to work only if the identifiers or dates are in a particular order. ALso having trouble using TWO criteria
how to pick the closest value to any number in A from column C, and then depending on whether its positive or negative, display the corresponding value from D or E.
So if we had -20.77 in col A, it would pick the closest number from col C (In C1) and then display the value from D1. Similarly, if we had +20.4 in col A, it would pick the closest number from col C (C5), and display the corresponding value from E, E5.
I have 2 different sets of data: temperature data recorded at meteo-stations defined by latitude / longitude, and major world cities also defined by latitude / longitude.
After the user chooses the station's coordinates, temperature data is pulled out from the first data set; this works! However, I would like to be able to provide information about the closest city to the chosen meteo-station from the second data set.
I have an excel workbook with 2 worksheets. One worksheet shows the MASTER LIST of COMPLETE Customer Names (e.g. ABB Supplies Incorporated). The other worksheet has information on customers but the customer names typed in are incomplete (e.g. ABC Supplies). I need a macro that would look do a comparison of the customer names in the 2nd worksheet to the Master List worksheet and pull the data (complete name, address, etc.) for those that would match (partial match since company name is 2nd worksheet is usually incomplete).
i have 2 columns of data. Column A is state Column B is money owed to that state
So lets say A1 is florida and B1 is 29,000
I am trying for column C to tell me what values (and if possible the cooresponding state) are the 2 closest values above it and the 2 closest values below it in B1:B50. It can appear as a string of text like 27,000 CA 28944 (OR) 31000 (FL) 31200 (GA)
I am running a time series linear regression on a credit card company. The left most column is the amount of cards they had on a certain year and the prediction is the cards the regression formula predicted. The + and - are the columns added or subtracted the standard error which is 3.25. I am trying to highlight the closest +/- number to the original cards. For example, in the first Row 76.98 is closer to 78 than 83 is so i would like to have 76.98 highlighted...showing that subtracting the standard error gave us the closest prediction. The second column the 87.085 cell should be highlighted because adding the standard error gave us the closest prediction to 86.4.
