Am trying to use index match to return value in column B based on matching 2 first chars on the left in column A.

Col A Col B
POS Majalt
POS Minalt
POS Instinctive
NB Viral
NB Sierra
NB Pierce
CLM Team1
CLM Team2
OS Tr1
OS Tr2
HR Tetra
HR Pentagon
IT penelope

Cell C1 : NBA MyFormula : {=INDEX(B:B,MATCH(LEFT(C1,2),"*"&$A:$A&"*",0))} <<== I need to find the match of NB only in range A:A to return the related values in Col B.

Expected Result:

NB Viral
NB Sierra
NB Pierce

Other than formula stated above, I've also tried with Isnumber(search), etc but all return errors.

what the formula is if I want to hide all rows that begin with: "FORCE-MATCH CANDIDATE" in a specif column. The text after that string varies based on user input.

I have a spread sheet with towns listed in Column G from row 3-81. I months going across row 2 as column labels (they are dates in Jan-14 format). They go from column H-AF.

What I want to happen is to have a formula (not in VBA) which will compare the month in row 2 versus the current month. If it is more than 5 months ago I would like it to return the town in column G for the corresponding row. The only thing I am using to "mark" the last time the town was worked is an X so that is all it needs to look for.

I would like to ask how can I get to work the index match function (if there's any formula other than this current function its fine) if i have a start date and end date as range date then another criteria for name to get my desired result. im having a hard time to explain so i attached a workbook so you can around it.

I found a formula and tweaked it but still cant get to work.

I have a rather large table that I need to return the column heading from.

Within the table I have a list of Names in the left most Column (A) and a list of Percentiles in the header row (row 2) (incrementing by 5%). By inputting the name and a cell value I am trying to return the column header.

Using an example;

5% 10% 15% Bob 3.5 4.1 4.15 John 3.6 4.2 4.30 Chris 3.3 4.9 4.95 Sammy 3.7 4.6 4.7

Like I said, knowing the name and the cell value, I want to return the percentage value. So for example, Bob would be one input value, and another input value would be 4.1. I would want excel to return 10%.

I have found different suggestions using a combination of index/match but even using these functions I cannot get it to return the COLUMN value instead of a cell value.

I think I could get this to work but the INDEX command is not returning an index of the row like it is documented. It is returning the value in the cell. In order to get this to work, I need to return the index of the row. I need to know what row the match found the item on because the value I need to copy is going to be in column J of that same row.

I have two worksheets within 1 excel document.1 worksheet is a hand filled and excel programmed worksheet (Name is website-upload)1 worksheet is a hand filled and excel programmed worksheet (Name is website-upload)

1 worksheet is a hand filled and excel programmed worksheet (Name is website-upload)

The other worksheet is a table from a database connection worksheet. (Name is ODBC_Products)

Each worksheet has a Sku column in it.

website-upload: Column AODBC_Products: Column B

Each worksheet has a QTY column in it.

website-upload: Column KODBC_Products: Column J

Goal: I would like to search the Sku column ODBC_Products and find a match for a sku that is listed in the website-upload sku column and then when I find that match, display the qty from the ODBC_Products worksheet to the website-upload worksheet.

Notes: I add columns and delete columns all of the time on this worksheet so I would rather do this in excel vs. a macro. I figure this can be done with something like:

I have a table with Dynamic Headings and Expanding rows, that's setup like below: The formula in the Qty column would produce a "0", if the result of the Index Match has a blank. For example in a different table the reference cell would have "Heading3". Therefore the results in the Qty column would be like example below. The products in the table below are like 0's and 1's to trigger the formula to calculate with the variables, or give a zero. If the Index Match found "Heading2" the results would be based on cells under "Heading2 Column" etc.

I am trying to rank stores based on a quantity of run outs they have. I have a list of stores in order with the run out quantities. I use the large function to figure out the rank but when you have two stores with the same quantity it only finds the first on in the list.

I have sheet full of data containing results of multiple tests on various equipment.The sheet contains many columns of data but below are the specifc criteria i want to use to extract the data. As maintenance is carried out regularly the list is always growing. I want to create a dashboard summary of the "Machines" which i will colour using condition formatting. I will list the machines in the columns and would like the rows below each machine to be populated with the results.

Column 1 Lists the various factories Column 2 Lists the Machine Column 3 Lists the Part Column 4 Lists the result.

Results can either be "ok", "warning", "Alert" only

I have a table of sales by month per account. Each account has an associated country, but there may be many duplicates of each country per month.

I want to create a formula which indexes the country field and gives me the country with the highest total sum for a specified date range. I'd like to be able to drag the formula down and have the country with the highest sales, then the second highest, and third highest, and so-on. Column ranges are specified below.

I was thinking of using an array function utilizing index, large, sumif, and match, but I am getting stuck. I'm honestly not sure if what I'm looking for is even possible, but in Excel, everything is possible, so there has to be a way!

I'm trying to create a formula in cell f13 of my attached spreadsheet "Sample 1" that will search the 2nd attached spreadsheet "Sample 2" and return the correct serial number based on both the matching PO # (located in cell E10 on Sample Sheet 1 and in Column 5 on Sample Sheet 2) and Product # (cell A13 on my Sample Sheet 1). My current formula is not returning the correct result and I'm not sure why.

I'm trying to hone a quoting tool to generate an amount based on a given range and minimum charges for specified subsects of the range. If you reference the attachment I'm trying to calculate a charge in cell K15 based on values in B9 and C10 referencing the table I8:R9. What I cant figure out is how to create a minimum charge of 50 for J8:P9 (points A-G) and a charge of 95 for Q8:R9 (points H-I).

so this gives a part number depending on what number is placed in O6. What I need to do know is look at 2 different cells and for each combination of numbers give a different part number. so if A1 is 2 and B1 is 3 give a certain result.

in two seperate worksheet i download external data from 2 different website with some stats about teams. Problem is that theses websites user slighty different names for the teams ie. it will be man city from one source and manchester city from another. i need to somehow get the names to match up is there an easy way to do this?

I am trying to match data from 2 independent sets, formatted slightly differently so not sure which function would work best for me. From the attached file, I am trying to match the date and time stamp (in cell A1) with that from the other data (in this example in cell E1) and return the data (from cell F1) to cell C1. So basically any date and time stamp before 04/03/09 04:00 will return a value of 44 (this value should appear, therefore in cells C1 - C30)

We know how INDEX/MATCH works, and it's very nice. I attached a COUNTIF to it to count how many times the index finds itself on another table; if it doesn't find itself, then it goes blank. However, this time I need to count how many times it finds a certain string condition in the other table.

The columns that need to be filled are shaded in dark pink.

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?

Sheet B contains a column called "Name" and for each name, and for each name there are corresponding numbers. In sheet A, I have a "list of interest" in column A. What i want to do look through the data in sheetB to find a match from the list of interest and return the corresponding letters, located in column A.

I have filled out the first two rows of results that should be returned as an example.

One idea i had was to put a vlookup formula in each column result 1 to result 6 so i can catch all 6 "Serves" columns from column B, but there may be duplicates in the serve columns and vlookup only reports the first match.

Basically where the columns say 2011 or 2012 AND 1, 2, 3. I want to be able to have it index the number below based on the GL number on the left and both the year and period on the top. I think that you can do with using the sumproduct function with the binary, but the computer is a little dated and it takes a while to run those calculations.

I couldn't resolve the formula of Index-Match for getting the values that matches the following criteria

1) Match the "Category" of Table 1 to Table 2

2) Match the "value" of Table 1 to Table 2, if value is not present in Table 2 take the upper closest value.

Once the above conditions are met, Take the Result from Table 2

Table 1 is for Input and Table 2 is for Database.

Please note that Data in Table 2 should not be sorted in any way. I tried to use the -1 option of the Match function for upper closest value but it didn't work out.

Have a look at the file attached : IndexMatchUpperClosestValue_AlongwithExactMatch.xlsx

I currently have a spreadsheet with two sheets. The first is my reporting sheet and the second is called Stores. I currently am using the following formula in the reporting sheet:

I am looking to sum the values found at the intersection of multiple values based upon a vertical and horizontal lookup. The formula I am trying is as follows (which results in #Value):

I try to write the function that gets some "ref" and returns appropriate item. For example: if I give to function "C3", it returns "AAA" if I give to function "R18", it returns "BBB" (cause it between R15 to R26) if I give to function "R9", it returns "BBB" also.
