# How To Use Index Match To Search For Value From Multiple Sheets

Sep 3, 2012

I have a set of values in column A in sheet 1 and a compilation of some of the same set of data in column A in sheet 2. Using the index match function, I have been able to list the corresponding values in column B of sheet 2 onto column B of sheet 1 (for those values which are common to both sheets - matching occurs between column A in both sheets). However, I now have some of the set of data in sheet 2 and the rest in sheet 3 (again, in column A). Is there any way of using index match to search in both sheets and index the corresponding value from column B of the sheet containing the matched value in column B of sheet 1?

I have tried this by nesting the index match functions for each sheet into two separate IF arguments but haven't had any luck. Is there a better way of doing this?

This is what I have currently tried in Cell B2 of sheet 1:

=IF(INDEX(Sheet2!\$B\$2:\$B\$3001,MATCH(A2,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$3001,FALSE),1),IF(INDEX(Sheet3!\$B\$2:\$B\$3001,MATCH(A2,Sheet3!\$A\$2:\$ A\$3001,FALSE),1)))

Excel keeps saying this formula has errors but I have no idea as to what changes I need to make to get the formula to model my situation. Then again, I'm not even sure if this is the approach I should be taking to create a formula that models my situation.

## INDEX And MATCH With Same Table On Multiple Sheets?

Aug 25, 2014

I have a workbook (workbook1) with multiple sheets (sheet a, sheet b, sheet c), all with the same column headings. One of the columns in each sheet of this workbook contains an invoice number.

In a different workbook(workbook2) I need to find the invoice details based on sheets a-c from workbook1.

So, in workbook2 I can input the invoice number in column a and the rest of the details will be pulled through based on whichever sheet (a-c) from workbook1 that the details are in.

Workbook1 is normally closed (from reading others posts, the INDIRECT function might do what I need but would not work with workbook1 closed)

Working with just 1 sheet in workbook 1, the following formula works perfectly:

=INDEX('[workbook1.xlsx]sheet a'!\$V:\$V,MATCH(A2,'[workbook1.xlsx]sheet a'!\$W:\$W,0))

How to do the same, but looking in sheet a, b and c at the same time for the answer?

## 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

## Index/Match Cross Search And Extract

Dec 2, 2009

sheet 2
column C is list of chemicals (to give context)
column A is a list of the publication numbers they apear in
column B is GOING to be the list of publication titles they are in

sheet 3
column A is a complete list of every publication number in our library
column B is the corresponding publication title

what i would like to do is extract the title from sheet 3 and input it into column B sheet 2 corresponding to whatever pub number is listed in column A of sheet 2

the code i have so far is in column b sheet 2 "=INDEX(Sheet3!B:B,MATCH(A2,Sheet3!A:A,0))"

now the problem i have is this works perfectly when only one pub is listed in a cell in column A sheet 2 but when there is more than one pub listed (ie "pub number" next line in cell "another pub number") it gives a N/A result.

is there anyway to call up multiple pub titles from the multiple pub numbers within one cell

## Index / Match Search In 3 Separate Workbook

Sep 29, 2011

I have been working on this 2 weeks and have finally come to the conclusion. I am trying to use index/match to find an article number in any 1 of 3 attribute files workbooks. I have been am using Vlookup, but the Master attribute file workbooks DO NOT list the article number in column A (but list them in F) and therefore I have been creating an altered copy every month to place the article numbers in column A so VLOOKUP would work. Index/Match would be a more efficient look up formula as I could link directly to the Master Attribute files without altering the workbooks.

Below is the formula I have been using that looks in 2 attribute files workbooks

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[TireAttributes.xlsx]TireAttributes'!A:C,2,FALSE)),
IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[PartAttributes.xls]PartAttributes'!A:D,2,FALSE)),"",
(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[PartAttributes.xls]PartAttributes'!A:D,2,FALSE))),
(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[TireAttributes.xlsx]TireAttributes'!A:C,2,FALSE)))

Below are the three (the new formula would incorporate a 3rd attributes workbook "Other" to the search criteria) Index/Match formulas I would like to "Tie" together to find the article number in any of the 3 attribute files workbooks and return column A if the article number is present or nothing if the article number is not present in any of the 3.

=INDEX('C:JDAAttributeFiles[OtherAttributes.xls]OtherAttributes'!A:A,MATCH(A8,
'C:JDAAttributeFiles[OtherAttributes.xls]OtherAttributes'!F:F,0))
=INDEX('C:JDAAttributeFiles[PartAttributes.xls]PartAttributes

## Index Match Or Array Search Function

Jul 30, 2014

Here is the table I am working with

Date
Open
High
Low
Close
Volume
Semi-Annual Yield
Theoretical Bond Price
Index
Coupon
Total Value
Peaks
Troughs

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

The Relevant columns would be "Date" column A cell 1, "Total Value" column L cell 1, "Peaks" column M cell 1, and "Troughs" column N cell 1. What I basically want to do, in the next column, column O, is this: If cell N# = "Trough" find the previous M cell = "Peak" and take the L cell in that "Peak" row and subtract the L cell in the Trough row from it (like =(L4-L9)/L4)). Then in column P, if the percentage drop was 5% or greater, I want to find the days between the trough we are looking at, in cell n10, and the NEXT Peak, cell M11, using the corresponding dates in Column A.

## 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?

## Retrieving Nth Results From Index Match Using Wildcard Search Term

Jun 9, 2014

I am building somewhat of a rudimentary search engine that looks for a name, address or unique identifier, using an Index Match formula that searches with a wild card:

=INDEX(Name,MATCH("*"&F3&"*",Name,0))

"Name": is the defined name for column C on a separate sheet.
F3: is "search field"

The current formula (above), only returns the first match. The source data is only 927 lines so not overly large. I would like to have an additional page that will show the potential results from the wildcard search via a formula. Therefore needing results; 2, 3, 4, 5 etc. from the Index Match. I have searched high and low for solutions but I have found none in regards to retrieving multiple results from a wildcard search, only on a specific term.

## Index Match Ascend Between 2 Sheets

Jul 7, 2014

I'm not finding much on INDEX MATCH ASCEND BETWEEN 2 SHEETS and 2 COLUMNS, other then tediously do each pair of columns VBA Asecend, which is what I am trying to avoid.

Sheet1 Column A2:A26 and Sheet1 Column B2:B26 is the source

Sheet2 Column A2:A26 and Sheet2 Column B2:B26 is the the Ascended of Sheet 1

The Reference to Ascend values is from Sheet 1 B2:B26, but must match the same in Column A

So if A2: A26 is, 1,2,3,4,5....and

B2:B26 is and asortment of negative, 0 and positive values, then the lowest value is to be shown first on Sheet2.

-----------
Sheet 1
A B
------------
1. 10.
2. 5
3. 0
4. -15
5. 3

then Sheet 2's INDEX is:

-----------
Sheet 2
A B
------------
4. -15
3. 0
5. 3
2. 5
1. 10

If blank, show "",

## Index Match Between Two Sheets In Matrix?

Jul 16, 2014

Question about what I think should be accomplished using an index match.

On Sheet1 I have values in O3:O132.

I want to find these values on Sheet2 in I2:I197

Then I want to return the matching value with column AL's corresponding value which are also in row 1 in columns J1:BM1 on Sheet2.

## Offset / Index / Match - Using 3 Functions To Search For And Return Values From Data Sheet

Jan 19, 2014

Trying to grasp the concept of using these 3 functions to search for and return values from a data sheet.

The attached spread sheet has performance data for a group of employees.

What I need to do is find a particular employee then return a value for one of the category's.

For instance, I need to find "10TE03 ANGIE HOLLIS" Parts Usage on color or cell C10 in the attached sample.

Sometimes new category's are added to column A adding to the number of rows so a simple offset is not reliable.

Once I get that working, I then need to use a named range to total and average different data points for groups of employees by teams.

Maybe Offset-Index-Match is not even the way to go here?

## Excel 2007 - Vlookup / Index / Match With Two Datasets On Two Sheets

May 22, 2014

I have two data sets across two worksheets. The first worksheet contains sales order numbers (Sheet1:column A) and other data . The second worksheet contains sales order numbers (Sheet2:column A) and the product details.

On sheet1, I had to manually duplicate a sales order number (inserting another row) if the number of units of the order is greater than 1. I then need to fetch the product details from sheet2 for each unit for that specific order number. However in sheet2, there are multiple products for one sales order number.

How do i create a lookup/match to fetch the product details for each sales order number without duplicating the product details if there are multiple products for one sales order number?

I know a simple vlookup function will return the values that it matches first and that is not what i want.

Example: Sheet1

Column A (Sales Order#) | Column B (Quantity)

0417436GPCP | 1

0417436GPCP | 1

0413412FACY | 1

0413412FACY | 1

## Index Match - Multiple Criteria And Multiple Matches

Dec 2, 2013

I would like to extract Bill cost from "rule" sheet and insert it to "data" sheet using index-match functions. My problem are multiple criteria and multiple matches.

The criteria are Column: Cost type, Power, Penalty Category (The logic goes like AND function).

And I want it to extract "Bills" value from "rule" sheet.

There are multiple matches in all columns (Cost type, Power, Penalty Category) which cause wrong extraction.

How do i solve this problem with index-match function?

## Index With Multiple Match

Mar 28, 2012

I tried searching some other Index/Match threads but figured I did not want to confuse the other original posters. I can index/match on a single set of criteria but what I am trying to do it add an additional match criteria into the equation and that is the last "MATCH" in my formula pasted below (MATCH(\$B3&"",O1:S1,0).

1)I need to match the value in Column A to Column N

2)Then for that combination, I need to match the combination value in Column B which ranges across Column O thru Column S

a.Ex. Cell A3

i.0001 matches to 0001 and B3 #50000 pulls in the value from Q3 (which would be 2)

Formula in J3

=INDEX(\$N:\$S,MATCH(\$A3,\$N:\$N,),MATCH(\$A3,\$N:\$N,),MATCH(\$B3&"",O1:S1,0))

## Search Sheets For Data Match, Paste Results

May 13, 2009

I have a worksheet named "List" with static values in columns A & B. I want to search all the other worksheets in the same workbook for the one that matches the value I entered in column B on the "List" sheet. The cell on the other worksheets with the possible match is B5. When it finds a match, I want it to take the data from cell B3 on that worksheet and paste it in Column C of the "List" sheet on the corresponding row (all rows in the "List" sheet have a different value in Column B).

In other words, when "List"b7 = worksheetb5 , then worksheetb3 is pasted to Listc7.

## Multiple Criteria Index Match?

Mar 7, 2013

I am trying to return a reference to the first cell that meets several conditions. I can calculate a column (say Col E) that tells if each row meets condition with

=IF(AND(IF('number of cases by year'!B28:B547>'cumulative distribution >0 '!F51,TRUE,FALSE),IF('number of cases by year'!\$A\$2:\$A\$521>=DATE('% of cases captured'!\$C\$3,'% of cases captured'!\$A\$3,'% of cases captured'!\$B\$3),TRUE,FALSE)),TRUE,FALSE)

Then to find the first time this is met I use

=MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(E2:E521,0),0)

Is there a way to do this all in one step? I tried

=MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(IF(AND(IF('number of cases by year'!B20:B539>'cumulative distribution >0 '!F43,TRUE,FALSE),IF('number of cases by year'!\$A\$2:\$A\$521>=DATE('% of cases captured'!\$C\$3,'% of cases captured'!\$A\$3,'% of cases captured'!\$B\$3),TRUE,FALSE)),TRUE,FALSE),0),0)

but it does not seem to work. It returns #VALUE

## Using Multiple Match Searches In Index

Jan 10, 2014

To summarize - Columns B through E are current MLB Players who I am trying to compare with the data in Columns G though J. My goal is to both use index and match to find the following in Column L: A comparable player name using the criteria of having an exact match for both position and age, but the closest approximation match between Columns E and J.

I have deleted a significant amount of player data to be able to upload the document on this site.

I am trying to find a way to combined exact and approximate matches in one single formula, but have been unsuccessful thus far.

## Index Match And Multiple Criteria

May 23, 2014

I am making a table that reads from an list of employees. I have attached a sample sheet (changed the names). The list includes Name, 2014 Start Date, Pay Type, Job Title, Location, Weeks, Hours, Avg. Hours.

I need a formula that will list employees on a separate sheet based on the following criteria:

2014 Start Date = 1/1/2014
Avg. Hours >=30

I have worked with a number of INDEX MATCH combinations but I cannot get the formula to quit at 30 Avg. Hours whenever I drag the formula down. I also have seen some employees that average over 30 hours get "skipped" over whenever I drag the formula down.

## Using Index Match But There Are Multiple Matches?

Jun 8, 2014

i'm trying to do with an index match formula. My index match formula goes through a list and returns a date based on an email address. My issue I have is what if there are multiple entries that match that email address? How do I return the most recent date?

e.g. worksheet 1 has all the data

A B C

email ID date

worksheet 2 has a list of specific email addresses i'm looking for info on

A B

email date

My formula in column B of worksheet 2 is along the lines of this:

index(worksheet1 C:C,match(worksheet2 A1, worksheet 1 A:A,false))

basically saying where you find the email address in A1 listed in column A of worksheet 1, return in B1 the value in the column of that row in worksheet1.

The thing is we could have the same email address listed a number of times, so i'm looking for the latest date to be returned, not the first one it finds.

## Multiple Matches For Index / Match

I am trying to get a formula to work that looks up a vendor, and then checks the quantity of their order (less than 99999999, less 500, less than 200, and less than 50). I get either a #NAME or #N/A when I try to use what I have written. I tried to include an =index(array,AND(Match(row 1,exact match),Match(row 1 less than quantity),Match(row 1,greater than quantity)),Match(rate,exact match)) returning the variable rate. I have had no luck using vlookup and pivot tables.

## VBA For Multiple INDEX MATCH In One Column

Jul 22, 2013

Basically, I want a code that does a simple index-match function for a column - But for all the #N/A's that come up in that column, I'd like it go to another INDEX-MATCH function - and another after that. I'm trying to keep it all in one column.

Here is an example of the first index match

=INDEX([FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$A\$2:\$A\$15000,MATCH(L2,[FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$CJ\$2:\$CJ\$15000,0))

If this turns out an #N/A, I'd like those #N/A's to switch to this formula:

=INDEX([FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$A\$2:\$A\$15000,MATCH(M2,[FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$CK\$2:\$CK\$15000,0))

Then the remaining #N/A's to go to this one:

=INDEX([FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$A\$2:\$A\$15000,MATCH(G2,[FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$G\$2:\$G\$15000,0))

The column I'm referring to will have around 2,000 records or less.

Index across multiple sheets returning multiple values

I am building a payroll workbook and I need to build a sheet that will allow me to choose an employee name and the formula will return all the data related to this employee. I found this forumla to do this: =IF(ROWS(...)<=...;INDEX(INDIRECT(...);SMALL(IF(...=...;ROW(...)-ROW(...)+1);ROWS(...)));"")

But in my workbook, the data is on multiple sheets . How do I adapt this formula to look into 12 sheets?

that data would be returned in order of the date of the pay.
