# Find & Return One Of Many Values In Cell & Lookup Corresponding Match

Dec 10, 2007
Working on an export from an e-commerce application that lists the item purchased, unfortunately not by item #, but rather a lengthy description. I'm trying to construct an item number based on that description which contains several constants.

Each item ordered appears in a single row, comprised of ORDERID, QTY, PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I have several tables to pick out PRODUCT TYPE, COLOR, SIZE, etc. I need a formula to search to see which of the unique values appears in each in the cell and return the shortcut of that value.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION example "Sweater - Blue - Large - Wool"

TYPE TABLE:

Sweater SWTR

T-Shirt TSHT

Jeans JEANS

COLOR TABLE:

Blue BL

Green GN

Purple PL

Black BK

I would have separate tables for each part of the description.

The formula I'm seeking would search the PRODUCT DESCRIPTION cell for the range of values for each 'part'. So it would search to see which of Sweater, T-Shirt, or Jeans was in the cell and then return the one that was - SWTR in this example. I would modify this formula for each 'part', in its own cell, and then use an =cell#&"-"&cell#&etc... to combine these returned values.

I know I can write a large if- chain using ISERROR & FIND, though some of these lists will get lengthy.

I need to create a macro that will loop through a list of names on Sheet 1 / Column A, and if that name is listed on Sheet 2 / Column A, then it will set Sheet 1 Column B (for that one name) to "1".

The problem I've run in to is that both the lists change in length each time I have to run this (so no set range).

I've been able to get this to work with two ( nested) loops, where the first loop goes through the Sheet 1 list and the nested Loop looks for the name on Sheet2, but it is extremely slow.

Is there any simple VBA code or formula that I'm missing that could do this? I've tried to do something with the " Find" VBA command, but I can't see how it would apply to this if the list changes in size.

I have two excel sheets. The first sheet has a column with codes and another column with dates. There are more than one date for the same code. The second sheet has just one unique code. I would like to match the code on the second sheet with the code on the first sheet and return ALL the dates associated with that code to the second sheet - horizontally.

I've been searching the forums for this problem but I can't seem to find any answers. Anyway, this is the problem. See screenshot.

I want to compare A1 for the values in column B, then return the corresponding cell (column C) in column D.

e.g. D1 = 2, D2 = 1, D3 = 4, D4 = 5 and D5 = 3.

I have encountered a situation where I need to essentially accomplish a reverse Vlookup (using index match) and return multiple values.

I am looking for a formula that will satisfy the following:

1) find all the values in column "A" that match

2) In column "G", sum up all the values in "F" that go with the matching values in column "A"

3) For example, in rows 14-16, the values in column "A" match. Cell G16 sums up F14:F16

I have a large database of equipment on one sheet and an input form on another. For inventory control, when a user scans a number into the input form, the main inventory sheet is updated with the current location. I have it working using functions, but I need to do this in VBA. I am looking to do the following;

User enters 2222 on the input form. The code matches 2222 on the inventory sheet, moves the activecell 10 columns and updates a value in that cell. Cell A2343 is "2222" then Cell K2343 is changed to "WAREHOUSE 4". What is the best way to find the match and then select that cell in VBA?

I am wanting to use a vlookup or perhaps an array(?) to bring through multiple cell values based on being the maximum value. So say there are multiple employees (all with unique ids) under one manager (also with unique ID), I want to find the employee with the highest value in a particular column and return that employees details, such as name, employee number and the value itself, which are all in the same row. I have attached a basic example of the data involved.

I have two spreadsheets.

spreadsheet 1:

Lookup from Order numbers listed from A5:A177.

requested formula in I5: I would like a lookup to sheet 2 based on the order number (F19:F191), to return the cell above the first non-blank value.

spreadsheet 2:

Lookup value:Order number listed from F19:F191.

Data search:AY19:CI191

return the (date) which is in the range above the data search from row AY18:CI18.

I've had a look at few forums but i'm getting mixed responses, having to use index / match / lookup / min / --.

At work I have a spread sheet that I used to track material shortages by part number. So in column A of the spread sheet there is a list of part numbers that have shortages, column E contains a list of all sales orders that are affected by the shortage separated by a comma. I am trying to setup a query sheet where I input a sales order and get back a list of parts that are short for that sales order(basically reversing the original list to be by sales order instead of part number). The number of values in column E varies, sometimes a cell will have 1 value, sometimes 20+ and anywhere in between.

Example Sheet:

A

B

C

D

E

123

012

234

789, 567

465

789

890

012

I'm already got a INDEX/MATCH that would show both shortages for sales order 012. But I can not figure out how to get the shortages for 789 or 567.

I have exported an income statement report from the ERP system to Excel. Only items that are not equal to zero are populated. So if there has been no expense in the Central division for Consulting fees, it does not show up on the report. Here is the formula:use control shift and enter

small(if(row(A1:A100)-ROW(A1)+1>MATCH("Central Division",A1:A100,0),if(A1:A100)="Consulting Fees",ROW(A1:A100)-ROW(A1)+1)),1)(

Excel Jeanie HTMLSheet2

A 2 East Division 3 Sales 4 Cost of Sales 5 Payroll 6 Lights 7 Consulting Fees 8 Net Profit 9 10 Central Division 11 Sales 12 Cost of Sales 13 Payroll 14 Lights 15 Net Profit 16 17 West Division 18 Sales 19 Cost of Sales 20 Payroll 21 Lights 22 Consulting Fees 23 Net Profit

Excel tables to the web >> Excel Jeanie HTML 4

So this formula picks up the first Consulting Fees after the Central Division. The problem is it is going to pick it up under the West Division. So, how would I modify the formula so that if the row number is also less than Central Division Net Profit (A15), it is zero. (no offset or indirect)

I am trying to modify this formula to do one more thing, but I can't quite figure out how to do it. I have part 1 and 2, but part 3 is giving me a very hard time. The formula is not working correctly. It is supposed to do several things.

Do an HLookup for a row and return the last value in the row.If there is no value (blank), the value should be "Incomplete."If HLookup finds a value of "Fail," it should look to see if there is a value of "Pass" BEFORE (to the left of) "Fail." If this exists, then it should return a value of "OK."

Here is what I have so far....

I have two sheets of data , sheet A and Sheet B.

Sheet B contains a column called "Name" and for each name, and for each name there are corresponding numbers. In sheet A, I have a "list of interest" in column A. What i want to do look through the data in sheetB to find a match from the list of interest and return the corresponding letters, located in column A.

I have filled out the first two rows of results that should be returned as an example.

One idea i had was to put a vlookup formula in each column result 1 to result 6 so i can catch all 6 "Serves" columns from column B, but there may be duplicates in the serve columns and vlookup only reports the first match.

If lookup doesn't find a match in the first column, can I get it to return an

"ERR" or "0", something that would let me know there was no match? Right now

it returns the value in the second column of the closest value.

I am trying to create a quotation spreadsheet and want the drop down list to contain the materials but once a selection is made in the drop down list, i want other cells to be accordingly populated with data stored on another worksheet within the workbook.

The source of the drop down list is material and i need other cells to be populated with the adjacent data.

Here is a small list i have at present, which will be much larger when completed.

MATERIAL 20mm 30mm

Absolute Black £62.15£83.30

Absolute Black Premium£71.65£96.10

African Red £58.20£78.00

So if the selection in the drop down list is African Red then it should accordingly populate other cells with the values £58.20 and £78.00. Please help as i have tried many sources elsewhere but without any luck and this would be very benficial.

I would imagine that the title of this thread made little sense, so let me try to explain:

Sheet A has columns A-C populated with data. Column D needs to search Sheet B columns A-C for a match. (ie, see if the data on sheet A is also on sheet B) if this is true, then it needs to return the value of the LAST column of the matched row in Sheet B.

So, if Sheet A R1 A-C is 1,2,3. Sheet A R1 D needs to search Sheet B for 1,2,3. and when it finds it, (for example on row 9) return the value of the last column of Sheet B row 9. The issue is, the last value could be in column R or S or AA, there is just no way of knowing.

The logic of the formula like this....

TAB X, Column A contains a data set, each row is a unique value. In column B of TAB X, I want to input a formula that performs the following logic: Search TAB Z, Column C, for an exact match of data contained in TAB X, Column A....and if found, look in TAB Z, Column D...if a blank cell is contained there, then in TAB X, Column A, say "Unsettled" ; however, if there does exist any character (not-blank) in TAB Z Column D, then in TAB X, COlumn A, say "Settled".....but, if the data ID listed in TAB X, column A is not found whatsoever in TAB Z, Column C, then say "NOT FOUND". So for example, within TAB X, Column A there is a unique ID in one of the rows "ABC123", then searches "ABC123" in TAB Z, Column C. If found, it looks in TAB Z, Column D and that cell is blank, so TAB X, Column B, same row that contains ABC123, the result is "Unsettled".

on sheet 1

I have a list of race car numbers (20K, 15W, 2) in A1:A50 (may be more or less than 50)

Next to them in B1:B50 are the point values they earned for a night of racing. 100-97-94 etc.... these are points they have earned for a night of racing that week.

in C1 I have how many column over I need to write to (ex. 4 for Column "D" on sheet 2)

On sheet 2 I have all the total for each week.

example

A1 B1 C1

Car 4/22 4/29

20K 94 90

15W 97 100

......

What I need is some code to go down the driver list on sheet1 and write their points in colum D on sheet 2 when it finds the appropriate car number. If the car number does not exist then add the car to the bottom of the list (A50) or whatever, and write the points 4 columns over.

I'm struggling with match, index and lookup functions. I have a formula in column D that calculates the percentage of answers against the total score for that category. The way it calculates enables me to delete rows if they are not needed and still provide a total count and a percentage score.

Now the percentage is returned from a dynamic data set, I want to plot the percentages on a spider/radar chart. Instead of manually creating the chart or using a pivot, I wanted to lookup the percentages (column D) against the category (Column A) in question and plot so the chart updates as the user changes the answers.

I have a column with 11 different numbering schemes that go from 736466.01 through 736466.11 In the group from 736466.01 through 736466.07 I need to have the adjacent column look to those cells and if it finds 736466.01-.07 return "CM" if it is 736466.08-.11 I need it to return "TC". I created the formula below but it doesn't like something I have done unless I change the format of the 736466.xx to text. Anything other than 736466.01-.11 should return a "null" or "void" Can you help me improve this formula, or show me a better way of creating it?

=LOOKUP(E2,{"736466.01","736466.02","736466.03","736466.04","736466.05","736466.06","736466.07","736 466.08","736466.09","736466.10","736466.11"},{"CM","CM","CM","CM","CM","CM","CM","TC","TC","TC","TC" })

I have a workbook with 2 different types of sheet - 1 containing source data and the others 'collecting' data from the source sheet, depending on what the sheet is for.

For example, the data source contains different pets, their names, ages and their owners.

The other sheets are on a one-per-owner basis.

What I would like to do is use a LOOKUP / MATCH function to lookup the owner name typed in cell A1 of the output sheet and match it with the corresponding owner name(s) on the source sheet. I would then like it to return with each pet and append the results on the sheet accordingly - like below:

John Smith (in cell A1)

Pet - Name - Age

-------------------

Dog - Rover - 3

Goldfish - Tom - 1

Gerbil - Chewit - 4

Is there any option to match different values with the same "look up Value"?

For example.. I want to match the account number with the according amount. suppose, In the sheet 1, there is account number 1234 with amount $1, $2,$3 and in the sheet 2 there is same account number 1234 with amount $2 & $3. but I have got only one amount although it was not in the sheet 2 i.e. $1 with the vlookup formula. Thus, I am not able to find out the exact amount according to the particular account number.

I need to match more than 3000 this type of repeated data.

I'm trying to do in Excel 2000 that seemed way easier before I tried to write the formula. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

I have some data setup more or less like this:

1State DeptJan Feb Mar

2California 50128 31 6

3Utah 20119 3 11

4California 20122 49 22

5New York 301 29 51 15

I'm looking to write a formula to retrieve the numerical value located in the cell for a particular month, across from a particular department number and state - so I can plug it into another spreadsheet.

I tried the following formula for January, but I get an "N/A" error when I hit 'Ctrl+Shift+Enter' to use it...

=INDEX(C2:C5,MATCH(1,("Utah"=A2:A5)*("201"=B2:B5),0))

Can you not use static values in this type of formula?
