# How To Return The Maximum Value In A Multiple Results LOOKUP

Dec 11, 2008

What I am try to do is look up the highest (maximum) date in a lookup up that has multiple results.

Column in question is 'U' (FinishDate)
Maximum date that I want to recover is in column 'P' (DATE_COM)
LOOKUP VALUE is found in column 'A' (QUOTE_NUM)

I want to look up a particular value and return according results horizontally and vertically. Attached is the excel.

## Lookup Value And Return Multiple Results

May 4, 2014

I have been using this formula to do lookup and return values

"=INDEX(ResultsColumn,SMALL(INDEX((CriteriaColumn=Criteria)*(ROW(CriteriaColumn)-ROW(FirstCellOfCriteriaColumn)+1),),COUNTIF(CriteriaColumn,"<>"&Criteria)+ROWS(A\$1:A1)))"

I'm using this formula in a roster scene to pick up people that call in sick and display their restored job in a different cell. The problem that I am having say for example employee one calls in sick at 2 pm and i assign that job in a corresponding cell to another, then employee 2 calls in sick for the 1pm shift (the call was made after i have already restored employee one a replacement), the formula automatically places the 1 pm in the cell above the 2pm.

Is there a way to stop it from changing the value once a value is entered in a corresponding cell?

## Lookup Formula To Return Multiple Results?

Dec 8, 2013

I am trying to create a workbook where I can log what work I have done in one spreadsheet and allocate an invoice number to it. In a separate spreadsheet within the same workbook I have created an invoice template. When I enter in the invoice number into the invoice template it's not collecting the correct information.

For example, if I want the details for invoice 10 to show in the invoice template, details for invoice 19 appear.

I have used this formula:
=IFERROR(INDEX(ServiceRecord[[Invoice number]:[Date invoice issued]],
SMALL(IF(ServiceRecord[[Invoice number]:[Date invoice issued]]
='Invoice TEMPLATE'!\$F\$8,ROW(ServiceRecord[Invoice number])),ROW(1:1)),2),"")

I am wanting to add new information as time goes on and also to be able to put in any invoice number into the invoice template to recall information as needed.

## Lookup Maximum Value & Return Corresponding Row

Nov 28, 2006

i have a matrix

index| a| b| c|
0001 |1| 2| 2.22| ( probably it will be much clear to see the attachment)

I need to lookup for the largest number in B2:D2 (in this case 2.22) and return the corresponding header ("C"). I though it would be simple with hlookup() and max() but i can't make it work.

## Lookup Single Value In One Sheet, Return Multiple Results From The Other Sheet

Apr 6, 2008

i have two sheets, one to display results (Reults tab) & the other tab containing the data (Data tab)

what i am trying to do is some how create a search function and have a forumula which contains a LIKE function that looks up the data table
RANGE = Data!A2:K255

the search needs to lookup the primary column Data!B2:B255 ... if any results are found .. show them on the results tab.. and if multiple results are found, display those as well.. (in either instance, the whole row of information in respect to the results need to be dislayed and hopefully no duplicates are found .. eg, Data!A:K of a hit)

is there a formula that can achieve this? oh, the search is TEXT based and there should be no empty cells within the dataset

after some MASSIVE googling, i have stumbled accross this

B1 = Search box (txt field)

A6 (which will be a hidden column) contains =MATCH(\$B\$1,Data!A2:A255,0). this formula provides the first instance of the result and provides the row number

A7 contains =MATCH(\$B\$1,OFFSET(Data!\$A\$1,A6+1,0,8-(A6+1),1),0)+A6.
this is supposed to look for the next row number which contains a match and provide that row number

and througout my other columns, i have
B6=OFFSET(Data!\$A\$1,A6,1)
B7=OFFSET(Data!\$A\$1,A6,2)
B8=OFFSET(Data!\$A\$1,A6,3)
and so on

2 things i cannot recitify..

1, the match has to be EXACT ... unfortunately i cannot use exact .. needs to be LIKE .. eg, i cant use the search word "boat" as the range of data has "boats"
2, it comes up with multile .. irrelevent results.

## Lookup Maximum & Minimum. Return Corresponding Row

Nov 2, 2006

I have searched your forums and thought I had found a sufficient answer but could not get the vba to work. So any help is greatly appreciated. I am trying to determine a max value from a list then put that value in a cell. Next I want to determine how many times and on what day that max value occured. From there take the value and concatenate them adding a "," between them I have attached an example. I would like the values placed in cells F1 and H1 (the other is a min value and when it occurred)

## Return Lookup Results Of All Occurences

Jan 30, 2008

I am using vlookup to return data from a range that could have the same name in column A.

There are 8 columns
Column 1 is Name
Column 2 is Sun
Column 3 is Mon
and so on.

The problem I have is that a name can appear in two places in column1 with relevant information in different columns:
Fred appears twice, on Wed he is on a course the rest of the week he is on leave. I need a C to be returned for Wed & A/l for the rest of the week.

## Lookup All Occurrences & Return Results To 1 Cell

Jul 13, 2007

My task is that I have several documents exported in excel. The requirements in them were mapped to another document. The IDs were populated in a certain column but are now no longer needed. I have to convert those old Ids to the current ones. In my example I have populated Sheet one with the lookup table. In column A are the old IDs. In Column B are the new ones they map to. The old ones can map to several which is why there are more than one ID in some of the cells. In column D of Sheet 2 I have populated it with the old Ids. In Column A I'd like to have the lookup return the appropriate maps to the new Ids. For example for the first map in cell A2 it should return:

abc_18
abc_43
abc_6
abc_4
all in one cell.

Vlookup can return the first hit (abc_18 and abc_43 for cell D2), but ignores the other two IDs in cell D2. I was able to work around this combining the find, mid, and vlookup to return all values. The problem with that is that the formula gets monstrously big after just having it return 4. In the actual files it can be up to 30 IDs which would make that formula literally pages long since. I have pretty much no experience with macros, but it seems like the only solution since I have to send this off to various people so they can use it.

## Return Maximum Value Among Multiple Records With Same Key Using VBA

Mar 1, 2013

I am writing a VBA function that will search for a value in a column(say column B) in a table. This column can have duplicates. So my search needs to get all the records that match the value (including duplicates) and from these records i need to return only one value among records fetched that has maximum in another column in the same sheet(say column D).

Eg :

sno dept name marks r1 cs sush 55 r2 ece ram 68 r3 cs harish 77 r

So if i give "cs" value to search it must give me 77 as output. I tried to write my own Lookup function but isn't working and getting #value.

## Lookup With Multiple Results

Oct 29, 2009

After a lot of searching and trying I still didn't get to something that works.

My situation:
sheet1
column A column B
true "abc"
true "bcd"
false "cde"
true "def"
false "efg"
false "fgh"

on sheet2, in cell A1, I would like to get all results from column B that correspond 'TRUE' in that row.

So, in cell A1 on sheet2, i would like to see "abc", "bcd", "def".

VLOOKUP returns only one result, of course. How do I solve this?

I'm not good at VB, so preferably only with formulas!

## Return Multiple Results In Multiple Cells Based On Criteria In Yet Another Cell?

Feb 1, 2012

Worksheet 1: In column A I have a people's initials. In coumn B I have text boxes with miscellaneous text. (The same person could have multiple rows within this sheet.)

e.g.
AAA blue
BBB orange
AAA round
CCC smelly
AAA elongated

Worksheet 2 I want to show:
A2 = initials, B2 = first text box associated with that person, C2 = second text box (different row) associated with that person (if applicable), D2 = third text box (different row) associated with that person (if applicable), etc.

e.g.
AAA blue round elongated
BBB orange
CCC smelly

## Two Item Lookup Multiple Results

Jan 15, 2009

I am trying to do a two way lookup with multlple results. In the example attached I want to know the names of the people who were in Boston on 01/02/09. I have tried a number of index, match formulas to no avail.....

## Returning Multiple Results For One Lookup Value

Jan 28, 2009

I have been searching all day about this topic and while there are many "solutions" none of them fits my criteria and I can't figure out how to tailor it.

I am using a very basic data sheet to populate a purchase order. I want to be able to search a style and have all the data (color, units and price) automatically fill in upon entering the style number, I have been using vlookup but this only works if there is one color per style.

I have found different lookup functions that give the value +1 when the data is sorted but it returns the value even if it doens't fit the search criteria, I only want to return the second value if it correlates to the initial lookup

## Average Multiple Results For The Lookup

Dec 11, 2008

I have a lookup that needs to average multiple results for the lookup... columns
Q to W

Looks like it is only returning the first found value.

## Presentation Of Multiple Results Of A Lookup

Aug 17, 2005

I have some data arranged in columns/rows as follows:

Location Name
--------- ------
United States Sarah Buchannan
United States Walter Smith
France Phil Barney
Italy Anna Wilson
Germany Philip Watson
France Neil Anderson

I want to have some function in my spreadsheet that will neatly present the names of the people at a given location in a separate part of the worksheet

e.g. a display of all people in France would have something like:

France
-------
Phil Barney
Neil Anderson

Ideally I would like to populate cells rows in a different column with the multiple results of the lookup ("persons at a given location") and that change in location for any individual would result in the list of persons at a given location being automatically updated.

Did alot of digging around and managed to construct a UDF that would display the results of the lookup in a single cell - it is however not very readable. But, I found out that a cell based UDF is not allowed to populate other cells other that the one where the function is entered!

## List Multiple Results From Lookup On A Different Sheet?

Aug 28, 2013

I need to start a list in cell a8 on sheet1. I need it to find and list multiple results vertically. It will lookup what is in cell a1 on sheet1. The table of info is on sheet2 from a1 to b44. Column a on sheet2 has the values of what is in column a on sheet1 and column b is what I need returned to the cell with the formula.

## Lookup Multiple Results Of Same Value In Vertical Dataset

Jan 29, 2014

I am looking for a formula that would lookup multiple values/result, corresponding to one given value. I have attached a spreadsheet.

Column A and Column B consists of data set.

Column J has the "LOOKUP VALUE"

Column K is where we want the lookup results. We would require the result to be in ascending order which would determine the distribution.

## LOOKUP Multiple Results But Ignore Duplicates

May 30, 2006

I have this formula below it will return multiple results is it possilbe to modified it that it will return multiple results but ignore duplicates. I would like it to be a stand alone formula no helper cells or helper columns.

=INDEX(B\$2:B\$15,SMALL(IF(A\$2:A\$15=E\$2,ROW(A\$2:A\$15)-ROW(\$A\$2)+1),ROW(A1)))

## Multiple Duplicate Lookup Results In Single Cell

Aug 15, 2007

I have attached a copy of what I am trying to do. I've been researching vlookup for a while and everything I try doesn't seem to work. I'm also fairly new to Excel, so most of this is my first time trying these formulas.

In the attached test.xls file, I have two sheets created. The first is "Responsibility," and the second is "List." The data in "List" is what I am trying to pull from. As you can see, the people's names are listed more than once as the list goes down. On the "Responsibility" page I have each person's name one time. In the "Extinguisher" column, I'm wanting it to list every number that is found next to the person's name on the "List" sheet. For example:

Column B2 on the "Responsibility" sheet should read as follows:

1,2,3,17,24

Here is the formula I have in these cells:

=VLOOKUP(\$A2,List!\$A\$3:\$C\$38,3,TRUE)

## Multiple Comma Separated Lookup Results In Single Cell

## Can Index Or Match Return Multiple Results

Nov 27, 2006

I've spent the last week trying to do the following, with little to no success....and I'm running out of hair to pull out!!

I have a worksheet (let's call it DATA) with the following column headers:
* Site Name
* Year Initiated
* Status

plus a whole bunch of other columns of information.

On a separate worksheet (let's call it RESULTS) I'm trying to create a summary of all the Site Names where the Year Initiated = "2004" and the Status = "Active". There will be multiple occurences where this is true.

I then want to create further results where the year = 2005, 2006, etc., etc. I've been trying to use the INDEX function with variations of MATCH, SMALL, ROW, etc., etc., but so far, no luck.

Advanced Filtering is not an option as I need to do further manipulating of the results on the RESULTS worksheet.

## Return Multiple Results Based On Criteria

Dec 1, 2006

Here's the issue:

On sheet "master" I have a list of goals in column A.

Each has been assigned to at least one person. Each person will have their own sheet that will capture the goals assigned to them. As an example, see Al's sheet.

I am trying to get Excel to look for all of the goals assigned to AL on the Master sheet and list them nicely onto AL's sheet without out blank rows. (and for each, respectively on their own sheet). I could do this with Pivot Tables if the data were displayed differently, but I have been told that I have to display the goal assignments as shown.

I could use "x"s instead of their names to mark the assignment and I could combine the "goal-achieved expectations" and "goal #s" columns if it helps. I am not supposed to use filters either.

Note: Of course, a goal or an assignment could change on the master sheet, but the assignment is more likely to change.

how this done for AL, I can go ahead and create the other sheets.

## Vlookup Data And Return Results On Multiple Entries

Feb 16, 2009

So i have a spreadsheet that has a list of members and how many events they have attended. That is fine because i achieved this by doing a countif function on their account number. The spreadsheet has to sheets Events Attended TOTAl and List. In the list it has their name account number and what event they attended and what date. What i need is to have a function that will lookup their account number and return what event they attended but they might have been to 4 different events.

I have a total of 5 columns dedicated to Event attended so we can tell it to lookup first event and return result then have an if function in the next column to lookup event and if its returned in previous column move onto the next event attended.

## Single Formula/Function Return Results To Multiple Cells

Aug 26, 2006

I've got an If statement in Excel which features several VLookups - I need the IF statement to return differing results to 2 different cells, is this possible?

In plain English, I'm looking for something like

If(Vlookup(A2, B2:D5, 4, False), C6="y" And D7="ok", "False")

Obviously this is a very crude example

## Lookup Multiple Same Value And Return Multiple Corresponding Value In Ascending Order

Oct 9, 2008

I have a problem with the formula that look up multiple records with the same values and return multiple corresponding values in ascending order. I am using Excel 2003 and it is a bit complicated to explain so I have attached a sample spreadsheet to show what I mean.

What I want was after I have sorted the occurrence value in column E based on column B and I want to correspond the Rank in column D based on column A in ascending order for the same occurrence value in column E.

Eg: There is two occurrences for number 1 at E3 and E4, and three occurrences for number 2 at E5, E6 and E7 in column E. Then the Rank for the first occurrence for number 1 in D3 should be ranking 6 and the second occurrence for number 1 in D4 should be ranking 7, so the Rank for the first occurrence for number 2 in D5 should be ranking 3, D6 should be ranking 4 and D7 should be ranking 9 based on column A and B, etc.

## Search Workbook For Cells That Meet Multiple Criteria And Return Results From Rows

Jun 28, 2013

I would like to perform a search on only the worksheets listed in a worksheet titled table of contents. I would like to use multiple criteria for this search and send only the unique results to a worksheet titled results. Each worksheet listed in the table of contents has a cell address for each heading that I would like to extract data from the same column. The attached workbook example shows the data that I would like to collect when I search for cells that begin with "AB" and cells that begin with "CD". I collected this data by copy and pasting all the data from each worksheet into the results page and then applying filters and advanced filter to remove duplicates. This method does not work well for the original workbook as the data is quite extensive.

## Concatenate Multiple Vlookup Results With Dash Exclude Null Values Or 0 Return?

Jun 10, 2014

The 3 vlookup will be in a single cell for concatenation like :

=vlookup1&"-"&vlookup2&"-"&vlookup3

Problem the are 3 vlookups where it will return names (with format -> Fname, Given Name Middle) and probably blank returns.

I have problem with the replace since there are also spaces between the Fname,Gname and Mname sample name with spaces.

## Lookup And Return Multiple

Jan 30, 2009

I have a spreadsheet similiar to the below:

COLUMN A.....COLUMN B
Person 1.......Process 1
Person 1.......Process 1
Person 1.......Process 2
Person 1.......Process 1
Person 1.......Process 2
Person 1.......Process 3
Person 2.......Process 1
Person 2.......Process 4
Person 2.......Process 1

and so on.

In the list, the "People" aren't neccessarily in order, for example, later in the list, Person 1 appears again. There are a total of 10 processes, and any person can do any number of each.

What I ideally want is in Columns D, E, and F, is something like the following:

COLUMN D.....COLUMN E....COLUMN F
Person 1...........3.............Process 1
Person 1...........2.............Process 2
Person 1...........1.............Process 3
Person 2...........2.............Process 1

so a summary of the main data, showing how many each process each person has got.

I have, and failed miserably, getting arrays to work but that might just be down to my own incompetence. I have researched into Countif's and Lookups, but it's not quite working.

The data in columns D, E, and F needs to be fairly compact so ideally I wouldnt want any spare rows between the end of the summary data about Person 1 and the start of Person's 2 details.
