Find Value In Range And Return Data From Another Column?

Jul 10, 2014

I have attached a file to make this easier. Basically I would like to search "Points Scored" (B2:W9) for the highest score (which I already have done) and when it is found return the team's name that is associated with it. Then do this for the second, third, etc. as it can be seen in the "Main" sheet. I'm thinking an index/find approach, but I just keep getting "N/A".

i have is 3 sheets in the same excel document. Sheet 1 is the mater sheet, which is a compilation of sheets 2 and 3, however the sheet layouts are different.

The sheets consist of a list of names and details. Sheet 1 has all the names in the list, however sheet 2 and 3 only have partial lists that are in a different order from the original list. The details listed next to the names in sheets 2 and 3 are different and hence a straight forward row copy and paste will not work.

What i need is to write a vba script that can take the name from the master list, search sheets 2 and 3 for the name and lookup the variables placed in next to the name, then update the master sheet accordingly, then continue to the next name on the master sheet and do the update again, and so on until all is updated. I have already thought about using lookup functions in excel however there is 1000 names on the list and around 60 details so it would be messy.

I need a formula to find the maximum value in C1:E9 and return the corresponding number in column A. In this instance, the answer would be 12. I've been trying to make it work with a combination of Offset and Max formulas, but since the maximum could be in any one of three columns, I don't know how to make it work.

I need to write a conditional formula that will look up in a 2nd worksheet the last coloumn with data (note that there will be some coloumns in the row that will have data and some that will be blank, I need the last column for that specific row to be the return result)

I would like to find the value from Sheet2 Column1 in sheet1 Column1 and return value from Sheet1 Column2 and Column3 into Sheet2 Column2 and Column3

And if it doesn't find anything just return Not Found

The problem that a Vlookup is not working for me is because I want it to be the exact text from sheet2 column1 but in sheet1 column 1 it should not be exact as it might have some extra text as seen in the illustration above

I have made up 7 worksheets that are completely identical with exception of course to the data they contain. I have a master sheet that contains some of the data from each of the other sheets that will be shared between them. Things were working very well until I discovered that some data was duplicated on a couple of the sheets; and I am in need of adding more worksheets.

The formula I am using for this will not allow me to have more than the 7 worksheets. It is an IF statement array. So now I am wondering how will I be able to add these extra sheets. I would like to use my worksheet names in a range but have evidently done something wrong and could not get that to work before, ending up with this very long 'IF'. !Can worksheet names be used to create a named range?

Also, I would like to know if there is a way to prevent duplicate data on these sheets. I am using conditional formatting on each sheet now, but that of course only works on the current sheet.

I have are two worksheets, "Sheet 1" which is a bill of lading form and "Sheet 2," in which columns A and B contain Part Numbers and Weights respectively.

What I'm wanting to have happen is when a user inputs a part number into Sheet 1 (say in cell B6), it calls a UDF that looks up the part number on sheet two column A and returns the corresponding weight from column B (to say cell C6 on sheet 1).

I have an excel sheet I am working on and in columns F1:F2000 I have an IF statment, I need to be able to add more "IF"s to it but I will exceed the 1024 char limit. Is there a way I can put this formula into VB as a function called DocumentType() and then in excel F1:F2000 =DocumentType()?

I would like to use a macro to find a number in a worksheet, other than the worksheet i'm using the macro in. The number - in this case a material code located in Column A - must be entered by the user in an inputbox, and then return (copy&paste?) the value of another cell (the price of the material - in Column D) in the same row.

I recorded a macro envoking the find function, but then it only finds the number which I used during the recording. How do I change the code so that the user can input any number, or what code must I write?

I am drawing a complete blank of this one. I know it can be done but I can't seem to remember how I did this in the past.

I have a sheet that has cells A1 at MB, A2 as ML A3 as MD

Then in cells B1 I have MB,TL then in B2 I have ML and then B3 is Blank this time.

Then in cells C1 I have Jim, C2 has Jack, and C3 has Fred.

What I want to do is have a formula that is in cell D1 that looks at the value in A1 and finds that value in Column B and if it is found return the value in the same row in Column C. In the example it would show Jim since MB is found in cell B1.

construct a formula that finds a value in a range , then returns the cell address of that value.

Say, i wanted to find the amount 12385 from another sheet , range C2:AA12 (contains only numbers , no duplicates). result should give me the address of that value.

I have tried the address & match function but gives me an N/A error.

when I use the range.find function to find a certain value in a column.. i want to return the address of the cell.. and save it in a range variable. how would I do that?

so this is what i have now.. but Rng does not return as a range.. it returns 69... when i use ctrl + G and type ?rng

set rng = .range(A:A).find(what:=69, After:=.Cells(1, 1), Searchorder:=xlByRows, searchdirection:=xlPrevious) ok so say it picks up..... cell A69... how do i get it to save range A69

I was just recently forced to create my first UDF and after how well it worked I now am very interested in learning more. I am trying to create a function to sort a range by the values in a specific column and return the range. I know this should be really simple but for some reason my code dies whenever it gets to my inner-most loop. I need to use this in a larger function but for now this is my only question. I did find that Excel 2007 has built in Functions for this but my company still uses 2003.

My Public Function SortRange(rngToSort As Range, valCol As Integer) Dim Swapper As Variant Dim i As Integer, _ j As Integer, _ k As Integer

For i = 1 To rngToSort.Rows.Count For j = 1 To rngToSort.Rows.Count - i If rngToSort(j + 1, valCol) < rngToSort(j, valCol) Then For k = 1 To rngToSort.Columns.Count Swapper = rngToSort(j, k) rngToSort(j, k) = rngToSort(j + 1, k) rngToSort(j + 1, k) = Swapper Next k End If Next j Next i SortRange = rngToSort End Function

I need a formula that will return the minimum value from a column range that flexs without having to manually go in an change row references. There is a blank row between each section of data in order to separate info. As an example:....

Need to formula to flex to include rows 5 thru 7 in the first section but expand to include rows 9 thru 13 in the second section. =MIN(A5.A7) works but how do I get next section to flex to =MIN(A9.A13) without manually changing the cell references? There is always a blank row in between the sections to separate.

I've got a spreadsheet with various amounts in cells A3:L5. I want to find the last non-blank entry in each row but only where the entry is in a column headed "Guaranteed PRB" (found in row 1). Then I want it to return the column header title found in row 2, which is a date.

I've attached a sample of the spreadsheet with the expected answer in column M.

I have one Column (Col A) which has a list of values. In Col B I would like to filter out the values in Col A based on some criteria. For example, below I would like Col B to show all of the records in Col A where the LEFT six characters = "Active".

Col A: Inactive_Jim Active_John Active_Frank Inactive_Betty Inactive_Lucy Active_Tina Inactive_Jill Active_Tom

Col B would result in: Col B: Active_John Active_Frank Active_Tina Active_Tom

I'm sure this is elementary, but I can't seem to figure it out.

I need to create a formula that searches column E for text, let's say "BANANA", and when it finds that text, the formula returns the numerical value of the cell in that same row in column B. Let me know how this can be done.

I am having trouble with getting a value (which is the row and column value) from a set of numbers. I have attached an example table to try and make things clearer. What I have is a table with a set of Row Headers, and Columns Headers all numeric. e.g Columns headed 1, 2, 3, 4, Rows 30, 40, 50 etc. I want to find the 1st occurrence of a value e.g. 1.0 in the table (by 1st Up mean closest to top left), and then give me the value of the Row and Column Header that corresponds to that.

So for the example attached, I want to get the row Value 200 and Column 6 from finding the 1st occurrence of the number 1. I have tried various combinations of index and Match etc. But I can't get my head around the fact that the position of the 1st no. 1.0 can change, therefore I can't use any releative positions etc.

I am trying to create a run balance sheet (see attached sheet). Column C has a list of job numbers, with column D showing the reqd quantities. Once the job is run, the qty is entered in column F and either a balance or the word complete returns in column H. My problem is, is that, when a job with a balance attached to it is re-run, that balance should be returned in Column D.

Ie 574361 has a total of 707 of which 320.4 was run, leaving a balance of 386.6. When I type in 574361 again, I need column D (in the cell next to the job number)to automatically locate the last reported balance and return its value. I have tried VLOOKUP and INDEX, but cannot get the thing to return.

i tried using the lookup but it gave a different result. i want to search a value from sheet1 A to sheet2 A and copy the remarks from sheet2 B and paste it to sheet 1 B and if not found leave it blank.

I have 2 spreadsheets, I need to collect the data onto 'figures 07' from column D on 'spreadsheet 07' by date, based on the name matching. ie cell B4 on 'figures 07' should be 166 and cell C4 should be 72. I've tried IF and LOOKUP but they don't give me the correct answer Auto Merged Post;Here is the second spreadsheet, it wouldn't let me attach both of them on my first message

I have this table, which can be seen as a basic custom gantt chart: KLRWo.png

And I would like to fill the A column with start dates, based on the first filled cell of the range on the same row, and the header value of its respective column (row 1). It's easier to show my expected result than write it actually:

I have a spreadsheet with a column A of dates April 08, May 08, June 08 etc. Adjacent to each of these dates is a value in column B. I want to select the appropriate value relevent to the current date and use it elsewhere. Therefore if it happens to be Oct 08 when I open the spreadsheet I want the value in column B, adjacent to Oct 08 to be represented.

I'm writing a macro that will import data from one workbook to another, based on yesterdays date. I have the import functionality working, and I've been playing all afternoon, but I can't find a way to find yesterdays date in a range and use that row number as the row offset value in this line:

Rather than having a set row offset value (in this case, 14) I would like to use the find function to lookup yesterdays date in range "B50:B80" in the worksheet I've designated as "sh1" and return the row number of the cell that has yesterdays date and use this value as the row offset value, replacing the hard coded 14 that is in there currently. The date values in the range are formatted as per Date Format.jpg.

I have four named ranges (Segment, Keyword, Impressions and Dropdown) and I would like to create a formula-based ranking of keywords by impressions and clicks. Using the following array formula, I am able to return the correct values for impressions or clicks:

{=LARGE(IF(Segment=DropDown,Impressions),$H7)} where $H7 is the number ranking 1, 2, 3 etc.

My question is what array formula could be used to find which row in the array returned that number and then pulls the data from the same row in the other named ranges?

Essentially find row of {=LARGE(IF(Segment=DropDown,Impressions),$H7)} but return Keyword and Clicks on that row.

Other Notes: I cannot use pivot tables and some values might be the same which would make Vlookups not accurate for duplicate values.

Looking to find 1 of 2 words in a cell in column B and return the word found in the same row in column E. This seemed easy but I am not having any luck.

the cells in column B have several words in them but I am looking for 2 specific words "PLAT" and "ORIG". If the word is not in the cell, it should show a blank cell in column E in the same row, otherwise one of the 2 words should be in that row in column E. A VBA loop would be ideal but a formula that can do it might work as well.

Im trying to create a marco that will feed cells in one sheet from data from another sheet. I want to be able to enter a "project number" into the corresponding cell, then all other related areas will populate across. refer file attached. If i enter the project number in D4 (sheet 1), then the "Buyer", "Project name", and "Category" data will pull across from sheet 2.
