IF(AND Function Using LOOKUP For Conditional Values

Dec 3, 2013

I'm new to excel and am attempting to use an IF(AND function that requires the use of two LOOKUP tables for the IF conditions, I have been unable so far to generate the answer I'm looking for.

I have a set of data in two columns, column A which has a series of dates from 1/09/2013 - 30/09/2013 (multiple for each date), and column F which has a series of 4 digit numbers (employee numbers). I also have two columns where I can enter in values for LOOKUP tables, one column for dates (O2:O4) and another for employee numbers (Q2:Q17).

What I am trying to achieve is a True/False answer in a final column for IF A2 = value from column (table) O2:O4, AND F2 = value from column (table) Q2:Q17. For the querry to be true the values in column A and column F must meet both conditions, be from a date in column O2:O4 and also be an employee from column Q2:Q17

Currently I get a #NA error and I know its due to my formula not being anywhere near correct, as far as I can tell it's a result of the LOOKUP part of the formula I'm attempting to create, as it generates a #NA area when the data does not meet the criteria in the columns (tables), I have attempted to include a ISNA section to the formula to alter the result if the data does not meet the two conditions but when applied to the whole data set it only responds with a False answer even if the data meets both conditions.

Data for once source Column A shipping container numbers (alpha & numerical) Column B the container size code Column C relevant date of arrival

Data from another source Column D shipping container numbers (alpha & numerical) Column E the container size code Column F relevant date of shipment

What I want is: If Column A containers match with Column B containers Then in Column G the containers that matched and Column H the container size code Column I the date of arrival Column J the date of shipment

Vlookup seem to be an answer, but can’t get it to work. I am not good in VB, so may be formulas would be better Named range and IF & Match FORMULA may be?!! The list will be approximately 20,000 numbers long. Have attached the sample file.

I have an "actual build" worksheet, which allows the user to select which materials were used, material properties (e.g. material grade etc.), including its corresponding length. The user can enter all these in manually, or select the material name from a pre-defined list (Reference worksheet contains this information), and then the associated properties are automatic lookups from the Reference worksheet.

So all this is fine / completed, and the LOOKUP returns its theoretical length from the reference table. However, its actual material lengths will almost never match the theoretical length, so what I want to happen is for a conditional format to highlight the cell, to notify the user that they need to enter a manual value. The auto-looked up length is still useful a proposed build on the worksheet, but having it highlighted to ensure it is manually entered later is the objective.

The other thing is it can't just check if it's a formula, it has to check if it is a formula with a MATCH/LOOKUP function. E.g. it needs to be unhighlighted if someone has a basic formula, ie = 2*0.42 if there two of the item etc..

Hence, I was thinking of having a conditional formula that "format only cells that contain" and then format only cells with "specific text" and "containing" and "MATCH(" text function, however this doesn't seem to work.

Is it possible to set up a lookup function with two lookup values? For example, say I have a list of items such as:

1 A 14 1 B 22 2 C 84 4 D 25

I'd like to have the lookup go to the above table and find the number 1 and the letter B and return 22. I can't seem to visualize how to make this work.

In my spreadsheet, one cell in every row has a string that contains the invoice number. I would like to get the invoice number in a cell of it's own. The problem is that different vendors use different lengths of characters for their inv #, so I can't do a one size fits all MID formula.

What would be the best way of getting the invoice number?

Is there a way to use the lookup function in reverse? The "lookup vector" on mine has to be descending, that is it it is a column going from high values at the top of the page to lower values at the bottom of the page. When using lookup function in this setup, excel gives me to wrong answer for some reason. If I make the lookup vector ascending, it works, but unfortunately the vector has to be descending in my worksheet.

I am trying to replicate a payslip from a list of data on a worksheet.

The list of data contains the employee name, location they worked, and number of hours.

Each employee will work at multiple locations throughout the month, perhaps 10 or so.

The payslip must contain each location worked along with the relevant data, in a list so to speak.

What function can I use to pull this in? Of course if it were one location I would use vlookups to pull in data. As this only returns the top match I would then need a different formula to pull in the second location in the cell underneath?

I am trying to use the INDIRECT function to look up values on a range of other worksheets. I have a column of data in col A which is essentially a lot of different worksheet names. On each worksheet I need to use VLOOKUP to find a value.

Easier to show formulas. This is an example of what I want to recreate:

=VLOOKUP(O2, test!B3:C13,2,FALSE)

I want to replace the text "test" with the text in column A. So the first INDIRECT formula looks like this:

=INDIRECT("VLOOKUP(O2, " &A1& "!B3:C13,2,FALSE)")

Which to me looks like it should work but I get a #REF! error. I've tried various permutations, e.g. having the INDIRECT part of the formula located in a different place (next to the "test" text) but run in to similar issues.

I have attached a sample spreadsheet which describes my problem.

In C2 and C3 under the first business coalitions column, I have written in text what I would like to be displayed automatically with a formula. The trouble is that, as you can see, Abbott Laboratories is a member of 3 business coalitions. Therefore, a simple vlookup doesn't work because that would only return 1 result.

I have a workbook with 2 different types of sheet - 1 containing source data and the others 'collecting' data from the source sheet, depending on what the sheet is for.

For example, the data source contains different pets, their names, ages and their owners.

The other sheets are on a one-per-owner basis.

What I would like to do is use a LOOKUP / MATCH function to lookup the owner name typed in cell A1 of the output sheet and match it with the corresponding owner name(s) on the source sheet. I would then like it to return with each pet and append the results on the sheet accordingly - like below:

John Smith (in cell A1)

Pet - Name - Age ------------------- Dog - Rover - 3 Goldfish - Tom - 1 Gerbil - Chewit - 4

I am trying to perform a lookup (vlookup) function in a cell in excel and wish to have the range as a variable, so that I can adjust which column the lookup function refers to.

I am trying to use lookup function to lookup for data in another table (we call it table A). Unfortunately, whenever the code is not in the table A, Excel will return the data from the previous row.... is there any possible way to prevent this... in another word, if the code does not exist in the table A, I want Excel to return 0 or some other figures.

I have a table of data (say Column1 to Column 5) with multiple rows.

Column 1 to 4 will have the lookup values in multiple rows and Column 5 data should be picked up using vlookup or other lookup function.

I managed to somehow bring all these lookup values in (Column 1 to 4) in a single column in another sheet. I am now trying to use some lookup or other functions to match this single column and pick column 5 data in original sheet. Result i am expecting is lookup value in first column and next to it column 5 value.

It is basically a lookup wherein lookup value is spread over multiple rows and columns and result column is fixed. I tried using vlookup, but lookup value column and column number had to change every time when i moved from column1 to 4.

I am having a bit of a problem creating a formula for this report that I have to update every week. I need to be able to find the room nights and net room revenue values for the specific rate code in the "MATRIX" workbook.

On "CURRENT REPORT," I need D4 to pull up the value on "MATRIX" that equals "Room Nights" in column H and "CONABC" in column J. The same thing needs to happen for F4 but with "Net Room Revenue" in column H. The full report has about 500 of these codes in column J, and I need a formula that I can copy easily and will not be affected if codes are added or removed. This is super last minute - I need to finish this report by tomorrow morning, so take a look at the attachments.

In Mr Excel's Pod Cast on April 12th, he showed how to use the OFFSET function to define a range inside a SUM function. Then he had Conditional Formatting that would highlight the range that was being summed. Can anyone tell me what the formula would be inside the Conditional Formatting dialog box to get the OFFSET range to have a certain format?

I have 3 Sheets named Paid, Rejected, and Reprocessed.

On the Paid and Rejected sheets I have 2 fields Customer # (Column A), and Amount (Column Q). (The customer # field has many duplicates but the amounts are never duplicates)

On the Reprocessed sheet I have all the rejected items (all fields) and also a field named Reprocessed. I need to use a formula that will check the Paid sheet for any items that have the same Customer # and Amount and return the amount

There are 8,216 rejected items and 45,047 paid items. Some items were originally rejected have been reprocessed and show under paid.

I am using excell for our estimating sheets. I am trying to automate some of the processes to ensure there are less mistakes.

I would like to automate the process so that if a number is put into the quantity column then certain cells from that row are copied to a different sheet.

I just dont know how to do it? Do I use Macros or Formulas?

I'm trying to set up a conditional format using a two way lookup. The chart is 15 colums across and perhaps 500 down. Index / Match functions do find the correct value - BUT - the challenge is there ARE duplicate values in either the column or row that are "all" getting highlighted with the conditional format (color a cell).

I have a problem with the formula that lookup all values in ascending order and returning all the corresponding values. eg: I was intended to lookup for the value in ascending order under the Total Occurrence and returning all the corresponding value under the Nos Group but encountered the same Nos Group was returned when there is same value appeared under the Total Occurrence.

I need to return the project codes for the project with the top 5 sales volumes within each Region for each product. If say, I have the following relevant columns (Project, ProdCode, Region, Sales) in columns A:D

I am trying to modify this formula to do one more thing, but I can't quite figure out how to do it. I have part 1 and 2, but part 3 is giving me a very hard time. The formula is not working correctly. It is supposed to do several things.

Do an HLookup for a row and return the last value in the row.If there is no value (blank), the value should be "Incomplete."If HLookup finds a value of "Fail," it should look to see if there is a value of "Pass" BEFORE (to the left of) "Fail." If this exists, then it should return a value of "OK."

Is there a way to specify conditional formatting using an Hlookup function? I want to format a cell with a specified color based on a horizontal lookup (see attached).

I recently learned how to count cells in a range based on the value from another column (excel 2007) How to count cells in a range based on the value from another column but now how I can go about returning a value from another column that matches the conditional counting. For example in the table below I'm first wanting to find the rows matching "chr15" from column A that also have a value from column B that is greater than 25,000 and less than 3,000,000. But what it I wanted to instead report the corresponding values in column C? I've played with VLOOKUP to no avail but I'm not sure if that's the right line of thinking. The answer would be the values in bold.

A B C 1 chr2 12008 AA 2 chr2 149700 BB 3 chr15 51 CC 4 chr15 5624 DD

The Problem: There is data in a step chart from left to right. On a separate step chart, Conditional formatting is set to lookup values from the first step chart and highlight non empty cells in the row. The formatting should only format the first non empty cell from left to right in the row. After formatting the first non zero value in the time line the formatting should cease. Note: the conditional formatting value and the value of the cell being formatted are not the same in either value or time but are related. The formatting is to illustrate the relation

Current Formatting formula:

=VLOOKUP($B395,$B$5:$DB$211,K$242,0)

Can I get all the information from Employee & Benefits tab to populate in the 401K worksheet. All information is on these two sheets except status, plan entry date, and 2009 compensation.

True under Employees tab means that a person is still active and I would like for that date to populate the 'Hire Date' column; whereas, 'False' represents a person is termed and I would like for the false date to populate under termed. Can you use the social security number if its a V Lookup because I have thousands of rows and multiple people with the same last name.

I would like to do is reference a table of data using the Vlookup function but add all of the results together. I have a table where I keep track of orders being distributed, and in an inventory sheet I want it to reference that table based on the serial numbers entered and total the results.

A B C D E 1 DAY 1DAY 2DAY 3DAY 4 2 AAA1638 3 BBB7325 4 CCC3847 5 DDD5562

This is what I have. Now I want to see, for each day which has the highest value. so it should return BBB for day 1, CCC for day 2, DDD for day 3 and AAA for day 1.The formula I am using:

Tell you what, it is giving me correct result for column B,C,D but not for E. The formula for column E should return AAA, but for some reason it is returning DDD.
