Formula That Will Allow To VLookup Different Tabs In Excel
Jun 26, 2012
I need a formula that will allow me to look up data on different worksheets. I have 5 worksheets (1 summary, and 4 with raw data). The raw data tabs all have the exact same number of rows and columns but the data is from a different region. I want the user to be able to select from a drop-down menu which region they want summary data tab to pull from using a vlookup formula.
For example, I have five tabs in my workbook: Tab1) Summary Tab which needs to pull the data from the other four tabs, Tab2) named "West", Tab3) named "East", Tab4) named "South", Tab5) named "North". Using a drop-down list, I want to be able to select either West, East, South or North and have the vlookup formulas look at the corresponding tab for the data. So, in my example, if I select "North" from the drop-down menu, I want the vlookups to pull data from the "North" tab etc. I do not want to use PIVOT TABLES for this.
I need to create a formula using 2 different tabs within an excel workbook. I need to search column A on the first tab and column A on the second tab and if they match I need to compare column F on the first tab to column F on the second tab. (This column contains my staff names but the problem I am running into is on the first tab their names are listed first name last name and on the second tab they are listed last name, first name). If column A and F match I need to search column H on the first tab to column H on the second tab. If all columns match up to this point I need to take the data in column Q on the second tab and in put it into column K on the first tab. Is this even possible?
I have attached an example workbook where I have three worksheets i.e. Data1, Data2 and Master Data all of which have the same data format in each column
I have data in the Data1, Data2 tabs and was wondering if it is possible to copy the data from both these tabs (using formulas) onto the Master Data bearing in mind the rows of data in the Data1, Data2 can vary on week to week basis.
I have a summary page that includes the titles for each tab within the excel 2003 workbook. I want to use the names of the tabs in the summary page and create it into a formula to lookup fixed cells within the various tabs. Sorry for not uploading an excel doc but I was at work earlier and the thread did not load for some reason, so I am reposting it.
There seems to be oodles of vlookup VBA queries on here and i've spent a few hours reading, and learning, but this twist seems to be missing. Apologies if Ive missed it.
I have one spreadsheet which will contain a varying number of worksheets on a monthly basis.
Worksheet names will also vary but will always contain abc somewhere in the name.
I have one "destination" worksheet which needs to receive the values from whichever abc worksheet is applicable.
I'd like the vlookup in worksheet SER01 to look up values in its column A, compare them to column K in the abc worksheets and give me the value from column AD in the abc worksheet and deposit it in column H in the SER01 worksheets.
For another challenge - this is an outside chance only but the additional twist is that sometimes my lovely colleagues move the columns - so the columns in the abc worksheets may NOT ALWAYS be K and AD - but will ALWAYS be in the spreadsheet somewhere. As i say this is a now and again and i dont' know if its possible to search all columns in a range of worksheets... is that too much for the PC - will it fall over
There are 4 tabs titled: xy,xx,yx and ss. On tab ss; in cell A1, there's a formula that gives the sheet name of one of the remaining 3 tabs (so depending on a few conditions that are not important for this problem, its value is going to be xy, or xx, or yx.)
what I want to do is (say on cell A2), create a vlookup formula whose table array should go to one of the 3 tabs depending on the value of A1. So, if A1=xy , then, I want the table array to be ,xy!a1:b90, ..
However, I cant use an if clause (say: if(a1="xy",vlookup(..,xy!a1:b90,2,false),if(a1="xx",vlookup(..,xx!a1:b90,2..........) because I actually have 20 tabs and I dont want to go nuts with a bunch of nested expressions.
I have one tab for every month of the year plus a pivot table and summary page. Each month has 100+ products produced. In any given month the products could change, so a product could be on multiple sheets. I have used the pivot table to eliminate duplicates and create my summary sheet. Now I am trying to lookup the product description across the tabs using and if(isna(vlookup, but this does not seem to be able to handle more than a few tabs at once.
The second problem is I need to add the the production from each month for all the products produced in a year to the summary tab. I do not think the sumif function works here (or I am doing it wrong). I thought about an if(isna(vlookup +if(isna(vlookup and so on but do not think that will work either.
I am using this for my sheet =VLOOKUP(B1,master!$A$1:$C$45870,2,0)
I have added a tab "masterA" with 47K lines and a tab "masterB" with 38k lines. How do I get excell to start with master--if it does not find it there - go to masterA --and if needed go to masterB? ( checking in that order )
I have imported a table from my access database. sadly, it has over 65536 rows. I am going to have to break table down into mulitiple sheets on excel. Using a VLOOKUP formula normaly like this. =VLOOKUP(E5,MHIFUPK,5,0)
where E5 is my target,MHIFUPK is the sheet with the table array, and 5 is the price of E5. Now I will have multipe sheets, and I need to be able to refreance all of them in order to find E5. Anyway to do this besides upgrading to 2007, (wish I could get the company to upgrade)
I have two worksheets, contractor & list. Assume that Column (A) on the "contractor" worksheet is a named range from Column (A) on the "list" worksheet. On the "contractor" worksheet I would like to put in the contractors name, and auto populate the pay value in column (B). I have been using a Vlookup formula, but need to automate this process a bit more.
"Contractor" worksheet - Two columns: (A) I will input the contractors name from a dropdown list based on name range from my "list" worksheet. (B) is where I would like to populate the pay base on column (B) in my "list" worksheet.
I am using Excel 2007, I have a customer sheet and a sales sheet in the same work book. My customer sheet lists all customers with a single entry only each with a unique customer code. My Sales sheet lists at an item level but does include the customer code so if my customer has purchased more than one item the customer code can be repeated on the Sales sheet on multiple rows.
When I do a vlookup to display the amount each customer has spent on the customer sheet, only the very first sales figure is displayed, if further down the sales sheet the same customer has made another purchase I want this figure to be added to the first figure and all I want to see on my customer sheet is the final total figure.
The vlookup formula I am currently using is: =VLOOKUP(G2,Sales!$A$2:$B$1785,2,FALSE),
I'm thinking maybe a Vlookup will not do what I require, maybe I need a different formula/function?
I am using the following formula to copy the name of the tab - =MID(CELL("filename",C26),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,6)
I have a marco that creates a tab from a Master file, and I need to copy the name of the tab into cell A2, using the formula above. Then I use a vlookup on this cell, to get the data needed for about 10 other fields. I have these vlookups in the Master file. The vlookup doesn't work all the time. I get a #NA answer. Sometimes it does work. When I manually type in the project number on the tab, the vlookups work.
Sample of the vlookup: =VLOOKUP(A2,'AC-Program'!$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?
I'm using vlookup to find data, but the data is highlighted in different colours and I need this to appear as well as the data/text. Is there a way to do this? The data is individually highlighted with a specific RGB colour for each one and so far could not think of a way to do this. In the end there will be 81 RGB colours and text answers (just in case there is a limit, but if I had to I could break this down to 14 and less for each cell).
what I would like to do is view a cell result in my userform with out deleting my formula
It works perfect from the excel side but I just cant get it right from the user form side
Ok so cell D6 contains a vlookup formula. I want the vlookup result to appear in my userform. I can get this to work but it overrides the vlookup formula with the result. This means that when I go to use it again it just shows the same result.This is what I have:
Cell D8 has a Combobox with a list of names to select from
this is the formula in cell D6 =VLOOKUP(D8,B107:I754,2,FALSE) This retrieves the selected customers account number from the combobox. I need my userform to display the account number with out erasing the formulas because I will need to search for more account numbers after.
I have named the textbox in my userform Customeraccountb
I have just started using Excel 2007 after many years with 2003 and I must say that the new one is totally amazing except for one thing and Im sure there is an easy answer to this although the HELP was NO HELP
One the sheet I am working on I hide the sheet tabs through 2003 and now I see there is no options to unhide them. How do I do this.
I have a workbook with roughly 100 tabs and a summary tab for the data within the 100 other tabs. on the summary tab I have column A with the name of each tab, i would like to copy a formula down column B that pulls the data from each tab on cell C5 for example, maybe even look up other info too, but that is another question.
What i need to know is can i write a formula that uses the tab named in column A and pulls the cell C5 from that named tab without having to manually change the name of each tab in the formula?
The basic formula would be ='17003.05'!C5 however since i have 100 tabs, i did not want to have to go in and edit each tab name.
I have 2 inventory reports: what my store has and what my supplier has. I need to copy Tab1:K# to Tab2:T# provided that Tab1:A#'s contents match Tab2:A#'s contents. The A column represents the SKU of the item, but there is a difference in the amount of SKU's in each (my store sells ~6,000 items, supplier has ~10,000 items), so it's not as simple as sort by column A and copy pasting column K to column T.
For instance: On Tab 1, A2's value is , K2's value is [9.38]. On Tab 2, A70's value is , K70's value is blank, but I need it to be [9.38], to match Tab 1's respective SKU.
I almost thought I had it figured out with VLOOKUP, but I cant seem to get it right... It doesn't reference the correct number.

First tab, from the wholesaler: [URL] Second tab, store's stock: [URL]
knew if there was a way to hide the available tabs in an excel worksheet.
I know you may be thinking just right click and hide, however what I am looking for is a little different.
Basically I have a Macro Enabled work sheet which works on a "one click" system. The work sheet is full of buttons with assigned macros and data validation drop down boxes which link to many different tabs. The entire sheet is for information only so I will be locking the sheets to avoid data manipulation. The problem with right clicking and hiding the tabs is that it interfears with the macros.
All I really want to do is make these tabs not visible. I have set the sheet to open in full screen mode and they obviously are still there, but this is basically what I am looking to do. Not so much hide them in terms of sending them into the background, more so make them "drop off" the bottom of the screen to they are still active but not visible.
I'm trying to export a couple of tabs in excel to PDF format. The code below works perfectly for a single tab, but I'd like to export two tabs into a single PDF document. How to tweak the code to allow a second tab to be exported at the same time? In both cases, I'd like to export the print area of the tab.
I do have a file in excel with total 9 tabs. The last tab, has some formulas, which is taking data from tab 3 to 8 and calculates something. Tabs 3 to 8 are identical, (same data inputs from different departments). When I will distribute the file to some colleagues, they will need to add some tabs in between tabs 3 and 8, depending on their needs.
I want that in the formulas in the last tab 9, the data from the tabs entered additionally, is taken into consideration. How I can define the range of tabs, so that tab 9 takes then the data from all the tabs in that range, even if tabs are added in between?
I am using excel 2007. My workbook contains a tab with several buttons with hyperlinks to corresponding other tabs in the workbook. The hyperlink works fine when the tabs are visible, but do not work when I hide the tabs.
Is there a way use hyperlinks on tabs that are hidden?
