# Formula To Look At Data In Multiple Columns And Check For A Match

Nov 15, 2012

Any formula that can look at the data in multiple columns and check for a match - returning a value such as YES or NO. Below is an example of my sheet.

A
B
C
D
E
F
G

1
Name
Number
Name
Number
Name
Number
Match?

[Code] ..........

Basically the formula would be in Column G and would look at B, D, & F to see if they match or not. In the example above - row two - they all match. So a True, 1, or Text option such as YES would be great. Same as row 3 only you can see they are different.

## Formula To Index And Match For Max Value Across Multiple Separated Columns

Dec 30, 2013

I need to Index & Match the Max Value for 3 separate columns labeled "Price". The columns are not adjacent and cannot be moved. I am able to get the Max for the 3 Price columns using:

=MAX(\$L\$12:\$L\$45,\$O\$12:\$O\$45,\$R\$12:\$R\$45).

However, I need the matching value in column D labeled "Int. SF". I can only do this for one column at a time so far using this formula

=INDEX(\$D\$12:\$D\$45,MATCH(MAX(\$L\$12:\$L\$45),\$L\$12:\$L\$45,0)).

When I try to use all 3 columns with Index & Match

=INDEX(\$D\$12:\$D\$45,MATCH(MAX(\$L\$12:\$L\$45,\$O\$12:\$O\$45,\$R\$12:\$R\$45),\$L\$12:\$L\$45&\$O\$12:\$O\$45&\$R\$12:\$R\$45,0)), #VALUE! is the answer.

If I enter it as an array, the answer is #N/A. I tried making the 3 columns into a table (which I named Price1) and tried the formula again

=INDEX(\$D\$12:\$D\$45,MATCH(MAX(Price1),Price1,0)),

But that did not work either.

I tried using a V-Lookup, but can only get results for the first column, not the other two. I've attached my spreadsheet.

## Check Data For Changes In Multiple Columns And If Changed Copy To Another Sheet

Mar 8, 2014

This is my basic setup, each piece of equipment will have more than one routine to be performed:

Equipment Type
Make
Model
Serial
Location

To Be Performed
Frequency
Last Performed
Performed By
Next Due Date
R1

[Code] ..........

I want to track changes on "Last Performed" and "Performed By" and, if changed, copy both values to a separate "log" sheet. In total, there could be up to 10 routines for each peice of equipment. That means I would need to track 20 columns for changes. I would like this check to be done on save because that ensures that the user is satisfied with their changes and keeps the log from being flooded. And lastly, it needs stored in the log sheet in a way that I can identify which piece of equipment it was for and which routine was done.

## Match Data Across Multiple Columns

Dec 6, 2007

I wish to add more criteria to the "Find Feature to Find 3 Matching Criteria in 3 Columns in Excel" (http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/advanced-find.htm) up to 7 criteria if possible. How can I do this? I wish to display the results in a dialog box or in a different sheet. I also want to run the find feature from a different worksheet, perhaps using a button instead of having to make a selection in the table.

## How To Match Data Patterns Across Multiple Columns

Apr 14, 2009

I am using Excel 2007 and I need to search for data patterns that are spread across many columns. I am not sure how to search so that criteria is met across all the columns concurrently.

For example

I am interested in data that matches the following criteria ;

Column B has the value 55
Column C has the value 70
Column D has the value 80

Rows of interest are when all the criteria in columns B,C,D are met at the same time (e.g 55 in B, 70 in C and 80 in D).

## Match Columns To Check If Condition Met

Aug 29, 2007

If you open the attachment.. then you will see that Column A has all the names and Column B has it's Value.. likewise.. Column D has all the names and Column C has it's values...I'm trying to first match the names from Column A to Column D and then see if Column B matches to Column C..

## Check To See If Dates Match In Two Separate Columns?

Apr 6, 2013

what i am trying to do is look at an entire column, and see if that same date exists in the other Activity tab, if the dates match, then show the activity

here is the formula i am using, =IF(\$A9=Activity!\$A2,Activity!\$B2,"No Activity")

my problem is that i am only able to isolate one of the cells,, how do i check the entire column?

in other words, if i select two weeks, those two weeks of activity will show, if i select all weeks, all of the weeks activity will show, right now i can only get one of the weeks

my data looks like the following

1st tab
1/8/2013 - 1/14/2013
1/29/2013 - 2/4/2013
1/22/2013 - 1/28/2013

## Check To Match Columns Separate Sheets

Mar 20, 2007

I have a column on sheet 1 which contains 200 lines with a unique number in each row (account codes). I have another sheet (sheet 2) which contains the same column. sometimes an extra row for an extra account code is added to the col in sheet 1. I need to make sure that the col I have in sheet 2 always has exactly the same as the col in sheet one, where the same account code should never be repeated. I am currently trying to setup a sheet where I keep all the checks and controls.

## Excel 2011 :: Can't Get Index Match Max Functions To Work Sampling Data From Multiple Columns

Jan 29, 2014

I have 3 calculations I would like to make based on data in the spread sheet and I can't seem to get them to work with data from the two separate columns.

I tried a few of the index match max formulas I found here and could only get them to work with one column of data.

I have the spread sheet attached and the 3 calks I want to do are blank on the bottom.

I am using Excel 2011 for Mac

## Check For Value In Multiple Columns

Nov 26, 2007

I would like to count al the rows where in certain columns there are certain values.

For example:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Bakjes!\$C\$2:\$C\$4000="1");--(Bakjes!\$G\$2:\$G\$4000="")
This works fine. However, I would like to look in columns N2:W4000 as well if in that specific row value x is present. This gives:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Bakjes!\$C\$2:\$C\$4000="1");--(Bakjes!\$G\$2:\$G\$4000="");--(Bakjes!\$N\$2:\$W\$4000="x"))

This gives a #value error. Is it not possible to look in multiple columns at one time with sumproduct?

## Index And / Or Match Formula With Multiple Match Required To Return A Value

Jan 21, 2014

See attached file, "Rate Sample Index-Match Formula".

I need a formula to return the value at the cross section of two (2) lookup values that match. This formula will be input into column D under, "RATE" on the 1st tab, "TEST FILE".

In the 1st tab, "TEST FILE" there are a series of columns as follows;

A = Service
B = From
C = To
D = Rate

In the 2nd tab, "RATES" there is a series of rates with drivers From (green) & To (blue)

The formula needs to do the following;

1. Lookup the "From" value in column B on tab, "TEST FILE" and match to column B2:B59 on tab, "RATES" both highlighted in green
2. Then Lookup the "To" value in column C on tab, "TEST FILE" and match to row C1:BH1 on tab, "RATES" both highlighted in blue
3. Then return the value at the cross section of the match "From" (point 1 above) & "To" (point 2 above) in range C2:BH59

For Example;

The rate From SYD To CBR = 0.33. I have highlighted this in yellow on both tabs to show where the formula needs to lookup the data to return the answer.

Additionally, if we were to add service as an additional lookup match how would this work?

## Check If Data Match In Two Separate Sheets

Jun 9, 2014

In the attached sheet, i have data in 2 sheets in the same fromat. Both the sheets are seperate reports.

Coloumn A is the list of Team Ids, Coloumn B is the Ids of people who are assigned in the team. Sheet 2 also have the same details with changes in the people ID.

i am trying to find if the people IDs in report 1 is the same in report 2. i need a formula that will check if the people ID is matching to the same team ID as in report 1.. If its not the same, the formula should be able to show that.

eg :

In report 1, "197595" in coloumn B is against "4011-11341" in Coloumn A.

I need to check if "197595" is against "4011-11341" or some other number in report 2. If "197595" is not against "4011-11341" in report 2, it should show me " Miss match". if "197595" is is against "4011-11341" in report 2 as well, it should show me "match"Project match.xlsx

## Index And Match To Check Data And Provide Exception Results

Mar 25, 2014

Currently i am using index and match in excel but however i am unable to get the result tt I want.. what i need is

Data to check with item master whether all 3 (article, color code and size) matches and if it doesn't match, which of the field is wrong. (eg: wrong color code, wrong size or article don't exist).

[Code] .......

Above is my item master

Data to check

[Code] ........

Example case: 1

Checking first row of data check

Article number: 2-50660147

Color code: 6

Size: M

Result: "Wrong size"

But however, it returns as wrong size as it only reads the first time the article number appear in the item master and does not recognize the second time the article number appears with the correct color and size.

## Determine That Multiple Columns Are Empty Or Full Without Doing Manual Check?

Oct 23, 2013

I have an excel document with hundreds of columns. Each column should not be empty; they must have at least one value. Right now I'm applying a filter and going through each column one by one to make sure that it is not empty. How can I perform this check without having to go through each column one by one?

## Subtracting 2 Columns Of Data From Each Other When Labels In Separate Columns Match

Feb 20, 2009

I have four columns of data, as follows:

label 1, value 1, label 2, value 2

I need to create a formula in the fith column that for each line will tell excel to:

look for entry in 'label 1' in 'label 2' if there is a match, then subtract value 1 from value 2, display result.

I have tried doing this with SUMIF but am getting nowhere fast....

## Using Match Across Multiple Columns

Aug 6, 2008

I am trying to use the formula below

=INDEX(\$M\$4:\$AG\$75,MATCH(\$D\$3,\$K\$4:\$K\$75,0),MATCH(A6,\$L\$4:\$AG\$75,0))

The last MATCH function is where it fails, because the value I am looking at (A6) could be in one of 5 different columns between L and AG

## Lookup Multiple Columns Match

Feb 9, 2012

I have data like this:

Code:

500a
TRUE470b
440c
TRUE410d
TRUE380e
350f

[Code]...

and I want to look up an approximate value in Col2, say 310, and return it's next-highest friend from Col3, in this case "g". This is easy enough with INDEX and MATCH. But I want to take it one step further and only use those values which are approved by Col1 - so in this case I want 310 to ACTUALLY return "e"

I found some good information here which gets me close. The following works very well. It uses a boolean & operator to match two values at once, but it only works for exact matches. This example goes down the list and finds the first "sydney" which has an "x" and gives the result "h".

Code:

xmelbournea
sydneyb
xmelbourned
sydneye

[Code]....

When I use this approach on data like in my first example it falls over, my guess is because the boolean & falls down before the MATCH function has a chance to accept an approximate match.

## Match Multiple Columns To Lookup Value

Feb 20, 2008

I'm using an index array formula I learned here to lookup a value between 2 sheets in a workbook. I have had no trouble using it when matching just 2 pieces of information (first & last name), but now I need to make 3+ matches to get the value & the formula is no longer working.

When I check "show calculation steps" in the attached example, I can actually see that all 4 items have successfully matched across the 2 sheets but for some reason the formula is still not pulling in the desired value. Am I wrong to think that I can match more than 2 items w/ this kind of a formula?

## How To Delete Multiple Rows But That Match In Columns

May 22, 2014

ertret.jpg

I am trying to delete rows that contain the same addresses BASED ON COLUMNS.

Do you see how in columns C and D they all match EXCEPT for row 4? How do I delete allllll the rows that when c and d match.

I want to keep the ones that DO NOT MATCH.

P.S I HAVE 4000 ROWS I WOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH

## Index And Match Multiple Columns On Two Different Sheets?

Mar 13, 2014

I've got a problem where I am trying to return a value if two criteria from one table match two from another.

I have included a example of my issue.

=INDEX(Time!D:D,MATCH(Data!A2,Time!A:A,0)*AND(MATCH(Data!C2,Time!C:C,0)))

I have had a look around lots of forums but cant get my head around what is wrong with my formula

## Sum Multiple Columns And Rows Using Offset And Match

Mar 25, 2013

Below is a table of data I am trying to sum. In the first column, is the account code, second column has the Hotel number code, third column is the description and the 4-6 columns have amounts for March, April and May.

I am trying to sum the data for March, April and May for account 107000 using this formula, but it is only picking up the first row.

=-IFERROR(SUM(OFFSET(PnL!\$C\$9,MATCH(\$A29,INDEX(PnL!\$A\$10:\$A\$500,0),0),1,1,ControlMonth)),0) to sum

FYI:
PnL!\$c\$9 = is the block referred to as C9 below
\$A29 contains 107000
PnL\$A\$10 is the block below A9 below
ControlMonth is currently set to 3

## Find Min Value In Multiple Columns And Match The Header

Jun 1, 2007

I am trying to find min value for a row (product price) within two columns (price lists) and return row one (company name) in third column ( see the attachmet). My first idea was to use “min” and “if” but a problem occur when there are text or zero or none values in the price list. I tried with conditional formatting, offset function, match-index and other methods without success

## Formula To Match Between Two Columns

Aug 28, 2009

I need column F to be matched to column E, i want to see how many user id's from column F are in column E and for them to be highlighted in column E. note that the user id's might reflect more than once in column E. See attached..

## How Do You Sort Columns So That They Match Up With Other Columns With Like Data

Jul 2, 2008

I have two columns one is web addresses and the other is email addresses but the rows do not line up. I was hoping that since the second half of the email address matches the web address I could somehow sort them so that the email address column and web address column match up. Here is an example but keep in mind that this list is about 9k long and this is just a sampling so you may not see any in this example that match. Also I may have more than one email address per website.

## SUMIF Multiple Conditions (two Columns Match Criteria Add The Third)

Mar 17, 2009

Im trying to have a formula look at two diferent columns and if they meet the criteria add the third column.

I tried using sumproduct but It wont give me anything but error messages or a zero.

Looks like this
=SUMPRODUCT(A:A="Stewart",(G:G="Fiduciary"),C:C)

Need it to say:
if column A = Stewart and Column B = Fiduciary then add up the amount in Column C

## Chronological Listing & Match Criteria From Multiple Columns

Jun 14, 2007

I cant get this one off the ground. Normally I am pretty good to find bits and pieces of advice from other posts and put something together, but this one has me stuck from the get-go. I want to create several lists based upon the row(s) containing at least one set of criteria (day and time, contained in two differnt columns). Each row allows for up to 3 sets of days and times (i.e. columns B and C, columns D and E, and columns F and G) Each row is date and time stamped as to when the data was entered in that row (column H).

I want one list for each set of the various day/time combinations allowed in columns B thru G. The list should provide the name(s) contained in column A, in chronological order based on column H, when a criteria match is made in columns B:C, D:E, or F:G. This is far easier to understand with the attached sample. The lower section of the sample represents my desired output that I cannot seem to achieve.

## Formula That Will Check Multiple Criteria Before Returning Answer?

May 14, 2014

Attached worksheet which is an sales incentive plan. I need cell B69 to represent the amount in b68 unless neither b30 or b99 are > 0. In other words if even 1 of the cells b30 or b99 come back positive, you get the amount in b68. If it comes back 0 in both cells b30 and b99, then they get 0.
