## Excel Formula Retrieving Data From Very Large Dataset

Jan 17, 2013

I've been unsuccessful in trying to write a formula that retrieves a single result based on two criteria (from a large set of data on a separate worksheet). I've tried various INDEX MATCH combinations but no luck.

A
B
C
D
E

1
DATE
TEAM
PITCHERS
RESULT

2
4/1
nyy
Sabathia
???????

[Code] ........

So this is a very simplified version of my real data set which is about 20 times this size. The first worksheet is where I want to store my retrieved results (lets say D2 for example). I want to retrieve data from the second worksheet that matches two criteria (exactly) originating from my first worksheet. The two criteria to be matched from the first worksheet are, for example, A1 (sabathia) and F2 (the date 4/8). The complicated part is the desired result should be from the corresponding K/9 column in the second sheet, which in this case (based on sabathia and 4/8 criteria) is I2 (result would be 3). It's complicated since I can't just tell the formula to look down a specific K/9 column, I need to search ALL the K/9 columns in the sheet (of which there are many). Is this even possible with some sort of nested INDEX MATCH? Any possibilities outside of VBA programming, or is that the only way?

## Retrieving Data From A Website

Jul 31, 2013

retrieving data from financial website databases like yahoofinance.com and bloomberg.com. I'm trying to make an automatic stock analysis model to read from the website database and retrieve the data into excel sheets.

## Retrieving Data From Text?

Sep 22, 2013

i have a long list of what were once file names in excel that i need to retrieve data from. i have attached an example file with 2 file names which i recomend to view while reading this request.the file has 2 spreadsheets. the first one is just the file name in the format in which i recieve it. the second one is a table that i need to fill out from the data in those file names.

i have a problem with the following columns in spreadsheet 2:

1. column C: i have the command to copy the site name as it is to this column, but what i need is for the program to read if the site name is ZANUAH or ADORA and then write only Z or A. note that these two site names have a different number of charecters in them.

2. columnd D: similar problem. i need it to read the lab name and write AL if its MAGAMA, BA if its Ben-Ari and SH if its shafir. i have the command for excel to simply copy the word, but how do i make it write the letters that represent the lab name rather than the lab name itself?

3. column E: the report number is the 6 digit number in the file name. i have the command which retrieves it, but it has trouble when the length of the number changes. its important to note that sometimes the number might contain non-numerical characters like 219641-1.

4. column O:i have the command to get the data from the parentheses next to PSD in the file name into a box. what i need is to get it to copy just the letters C or NC from the file name into this column, without the number.

5. column P: same as column O, but here i need just the number, without the C or NC.

6. column T: all i need is for it to copy the last 2 letters from the file name, which i know how to do. the problem is that since the file names come with a .pdf at the end, all i get is df. so in fact i need it to copy th 6th and the 5th letters from the end of the file name, which is above my abilities.

## Retrieving Data From Table ...

Nov 21, 2008

I have a fairly simple matrix table that im needing help in which way to retrieve the information correctly.

Starting in row 10...
My Column A has length that i want to return

My Column B has a minimum value that i need A2 to be larger than, say 20
My Column C has a maximum value that i need A2 to be smaller than.
My Columns C & D, E & F, G & H and so on then have different sizes also available... but thats for me to work out later.

Is the best way to achieve this with a series of If statements as Vlookup only returns values to the right, and i want the value on the left, or what is my best way of tackling this problem.

I can attach a sheet that i started if the above makes no sense but my formula is useless so far...

## Retrieving / Returning Data From Different Worksheets?

Jun 19, 2014

I want to be able to choose a country from a drop-down list, and then have the spreadsheet retrieve/return values from that country, whose input data is located in a different worksheet. E.g. I want to be able to change the input according to what country I am looking at. I was able to do this with simple IF functions,but I'm realizing that this is not good enough. I want to eventually expand the number of countries that I want to return data from, and then the formula is not dynamic enough.

To make it simple: I want to be able to return the correct values for "page views" and "high" and "low" according to what country I choose from the drop-down menu in cell C3 on the "value calculator" sheet.

Also; in cell N15 and N16 I want the alternatives to be yes and no, and they cannot be yes at the same time. H

## Sorting And Retrieving Data Based On Two Columns?

Oct 19, 2012

I am working on a new budget spreadsheet that I am creating. I want to accurately calculate credit card expenses. As everyone who has a credit card knows, charges made this month are not due to be paid until next month. To make matters more complex, charges made from (for example) January 20 until February 19 are not due to be paid until March 20. With that in mind, I created a spreadsheet with a different tab for each month. Each tab has a place to put in all expenses. Here is an example:

date
Category
Expenses
Remarks

[Code].....

Obviously, The above example is from January. IN the February tab, I want to calculate everything in the "Expense" column that has a date in the "Date" Column before Jan 20 and where it says "Kohls - Frank" in the Category column. Of course, in the March tab, I would need to grab all of the "Kohls - Frank" expenses after Jan 20 from the January tab, and everything before Feb 20 from the February tab.

I figured out how to add up everything with the following formula: =SUMIF(Jan!A:A,("<="&DATE(2013,1,20)&E32),Jan!C:C) How can I filter on the Category tab?

Aug 27, 2009

I have two lists. One is a database (Worksheet 2) with a lot of information, and another is the list (worksheet 1) I need to fill up the data for. What I want to do is to search for the names that are in worksheet 1 in worksheet 2, and if there is a match, retrieve the missing data in those rows, and paste it back into worksheet 1. For example:
Worksheet 1: Joe
Tim 23
Matt

Worksheet 2: Alex 45
Joe 23
Mark 47
Tim 44
Matt 24

I basically want it to be able to search for the corresponding name, and then pull the number associated with it.

## Formula To Copy Data From Other Worksheet With Criteria

Mar 9, 2014

I have problem to copy data from other worksheet. yes, i can do Vlookup or IF function, but it will copy only when key in the formula, and it is not practical to do that if the columns are more that 10.

Situation is like this:
Worksheet 1 - > A1 Customer Name, B1 Amount, C1 Details.
Worksheet 2 -> A1 Customer Name, B1 Completion, C1 Total Cost, D1 Amount, E1 Date, F1 Details

I want to create a formula which will copy automatically all the data 100% completed in Worksheet 2 into Worksheet 1. What i have in mind is using something like this for Worksheet 1:

## Formula To Select Data Using Multiple Criteria

It needs to choose exempt or non exempt from column (C) then reference the # Years of Service column (F) to find the correct vacation days earned as defined in the two tables on the right, or those numbers could be used in the formula itself. . . I JUST DON'T KNOW! Nothing I am trying is working!

create a formula! Use the spreadsheet to maybe make name ranges? nested IF statements, or LOOKUP, or even VLOOKUP??? Or something that works. not to repeat, but. . . Nothing I am trying is working!

## Formula For Appending Data Based On Criteria

May 14, 2008

how to search for this so I'm just gonna ask. See sheet below I faked the resulting formula I need) for reference.

We have an engineering database that spits out data. One of the things it spits out is a list of equipment tags along with its associate electrical drivers (I.e. motors) and details for each. I need to do some extra playing around with the official equipment list that we have to produce.

In a nutshell, if an equipment tag only shows FIXED in any of it's drivers, I want the formula to show nothing (blank). However, if the word VARIABLE appears in any of that tag's drivers, I want it to show VARIABLE. I know there's a formula involving IFs and whatnot, I just can't figure it out.
