# Formula To Pull Latest Date From One Column Based On Entry In Adjacent Column

Jun 6, 2014

Any way to construct a formula in excel that will look at a reference in one column and find the latest date from the data in an adjacent column for that specific reference?

Below is an exctract from a much larger sheet of the columns in question.

The result in the last column should be 21/05/2014 for anything with D.O.001 in the second column and 15/05/2014 for anything with D.O.002.

Date Decision agreed
Disposal Order
Latest Decision date for D.O.

06/05/2014
D.O.001

## Formula Tweaking To Pull Adjacent Column Data?

Nov 18, 2011

I have three columns of data laid out like this:

Column A Column B Column C Column D
(blank) Purchase Orders Shipments # Shipment Reference Field
12345 1ZX123 xxOO12346
12346 1ZC345 KJH12347--45
12347 1Z7YYT 0000012345XXX

I'm trying to write a formula for column A that essentially looks at the field in column B, finds the instance of the data anywhere in the entirety of Column D, and when it locates it puts the corresponding field from Column C of that line in the results of column A. So the result above would turn out like this:

Column A Column B Column C Column D
(blank) Purchase Orders Shipments # ShipmentReferenceField
1Z7YYT 12345 1ZX123 xxOO12346
1ZX123 12346 1ZC345 KJH12347--45
1ZC345 12347 1Z7YYT 0000012345XXX

I have the origins of a formula here...but I don't know how to put in the part where i'm retrieving the data from Column C of the same line as the target data.

=INDEX(\$D\$1:\$D\$100, MATCH(B1,1*LEFT(\$D\$1:\$D\$100,LEN(B1)),0))

## Find Latest Date (Column A) Given Value Appears In Column B?

Nov 14, 2012

I need a formula to find the latest date (Column A) a given value appears in Column B.

Column A is a list of dates.

Column B can contain any of 6 values (For example: A, B, C, D, E, F).

And, to make it even more fun, the system I'm working on doesn't allow macros.

## Pull Last Entry From Column

Jan 8, 2008

I am trying to find a formula that will choose the last number from a column of data. The column has a number added everyday and I want the last number entered to be pulled to a different cell.

e.g.

34
35
35
33
38
37

so 37 is entered into the cell

## Conditional Formatting Date Cells Based On Entry In Adjacent Cell

Jul 22, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with 'due date' for returns in column L and 'received date' for returns, in the adjacent column M.

I would like to get the due date to turn red when it is overdue, ie. the date in the cell has arrived and no return was submitted. By trawlling the forum, I managed to accomplish this with the following in conditional formatting:
Cell value is less than or equal to =TODAY()

All's great.....but - I would like the date to turn back to black if I enter a date in the adjacent received column, column M.

In other words, I want to flag a problem if the due date has passed, but once I receive the return and enter the date I receive it, i would like the due date entry to revert back to the original formatting ie. black. So only the outstanding returns are highlighted.

## Formula To Return The Value In A Column Based On Cell Entry In Row

Jun 3, 2006

Trying to write a formula that looks for the first number in the same row, then returns the value in that column in a different row. In the example included, cell A-7 should contain the formula. Within row 7, determine the column where the first number is listed (column D in this case), then return the value listed in row 3 of that column ('C' in this case).

I've tried Lookup, Index, and Match functions, but can't seem to get the right combination.

## Create Formula In Column B To Add 4 Days To Date Based Upon Column A

Apr 3, 2014

I have a form in which users will manually enter a date in Column A. I would like to create a formula in Column B which will add 4 days to the date based upon Column A. However, the 4 days should only be added to a select set of dates which I would like to specify. If the date is not found in this select set of dates, then the result in Column B should be the same date as Column A.

## Sum Based On Adjacent Column Value

Jun 20, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with a list of account numbers and values(sheet1) and on a seperate sheet (sheet2) a list of all unique account numbers that appear in the transaction data sheet.

What I am trying to do is get a total sum for the values of each account number. What I am getting well I'm not quite sure what I'm getting. The problem appears to be when the xSubtotal variable is reset to 0 at the end of calculating all the values for the account number.

## Change Column Referenced In Formula Based On Date

Dec 12, 2013

I'm trying to create a list that references an existing data set where I have staff listed month by month and based on today's date, imports only if there is data in that column. I have figured out how to check if the cell is blank or not, but what I want to do now is change the cell that is referenced in the formula based on the date. Here is the format of the spreadsheet I'm working with:

A
B
C
D
E
F
G
H

[code].....

In this case, the "Team 1" and "Team 2" and "Team 3" references what team they are on that month. If it is blank, they aren't with the company any longer. The formula I am using is intended to import this data elsewhere, and is formatted like this:

=IF(ISBLANK(B2), "", A2) - My understanding is that this checks to see if B2 has data, and if it does, it inputs the employee name (A3) in that cell.

My ultimate goal is to be able to change the column referenced after the "isblank" calculation based on the date. So if today is April 2013, I want it to check B2, but if it's December 2013, I want the formula to check J2. Is there a way to do this? I don't mind if it's two steps (like if I have to put the date somewhere in the spreadsheet in order to run the calculation), but ultimately it would be the type of thing I could do that would leverage the existing data set so that I don't have to maintain two different spreadsheets of information.

## Find Date In Column & Return Adjacent Cell Value

Mar 22, 2008

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.

## Dynamic Averaging Based On Adjacent Column?

Nov 2, 2013

I have a column with random values that are generated my my machinery.I should not sort them, because they provide me with the performance graph. Lets say i have column "A"

0
2
9
9.5
30
90
22
15
9
0

As the max value of this is 90, and its 10% of MAX is 9, which occurs at 3rd and 9 th positions.I need to find the average of its adjacent range, with zeros not considered.It has to calculate the max value in the column, find 10% of max and do average of adjacent column from the sl. no of first occurrence of 10% value in first column to the sl no of last occurrence of 10% value in first column.

the exact 10% value may not always exist. 10% of 90 is 9, but if the max value is 94, the 10% would be 9.4 which doesn't exist. then it has to take the nearest available predecessor in that case.i get values in decimals mostly and only some of them are perfect integers, thus this consideration goes with it,and also, my range actually is B14:B10013

i would most probably have the 10% value within the first 50 "non zero" entries and reoccurring somewhere probably within the last 50 "non zero" entries.

## Formula To Add One Column Of Data With Every Value From Each Of The Adjacent 8 Columns

Mar 14, 2014

How to do this or if there's even a formula or even a macro i could run to run this data.

I have three rows of data (29-31) from columns D to Q.

I would like to take D29 and add each of the values in the adjacent columns exactly once and sum up the value D thru Q

For example I'd like to return not just Sum(D29:Q29) but also Sum(D29:R29)+Q30, Sum (D29:R29) +Q31.

I guess that might be considered a 1X3 matrix & and 8X3 matrix, but I'm not really sure how to set up the return values for these equations nor how to return them very quickly.

## Formula Dependent On Text In Adjacent Column
