# If INDEX,MATCH Function Returns 0, Can I Change It To Use Value From Adjacent Cell?

Mar 16, 2009

If a INDEX,MATCH function returns a zero, how do I get it to use the value in the adjacent cell which is a unique number?
=INDEX(Sheet2!A:C,MATCH(A2,Sheet2!A:A,0),3)

## Index Match Several Returns.

Dec 24, 2007

agentsIDCount Name1ACCT1Name2ACCT2
Joe1113
Jimmy2222
Sarah3333

The above is A1 thru G1.
I have a list of accounts on Sheet2 that have the agent ID's (listed on K:K), Acct #s listed D:D and names E:E.

I want to match Sheet1 B2 with Sheet2 K\$1\$:K\$50000\$. I want to return the first match under this ID from Sheet2 Column E (to post on 1 Name on sheet 1) and then Column D (to post on 1 Acct# on sheet 1).

Then the next match goes to 2 name, 2 acct # and so on.

## Index/Match & Sum: Returns The First Number

## VLookup To Pivot Table Using Match Function - Returns Error If Can't Find Match Value

Mar 11, 2014

I am having some trouble getting a formula to work. I am building a report that pulls figures from a pivot table in another workbook. I am using a vlookup with match function to get the column index to find the relevant data I want. Where I need to add two columns together I am using sum, with the vlookup & match formulas nested in them e.g.:

=SUM(VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("FAID",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("COMM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("BPCM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("COMD",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE))

Where:
F13 = Employee number
Column C on the pivot 156 workbook is where the employee number is based.
The Match formula is then getting the column index from the column headings of the pivot table ie. "FAID"

This in itself works fine, as long as it finds a match in the column headings. This is where i get the error as in the above function "COMD" is not in the pivot table. However I need to keep it included as it may appear on a future pivot table. Is there a way of getting the sum function to complete even though later in the formula it can't complete the vlookup? So it will ignore it, or assume the value is zero if it can't find it? The formula probably needs to do this for all the vlookups as some headings may drop off in future pivot tables.

## Excel 2010 :: INDEX MATCH Only Returns First Value Instead Of All Matching Values In Selected Column

Jul 18, 2014

Excel 2010: I'm working with a sheet where I would like to get accurate results on the make and model of cars sold in a given week. The workbook contains several worksheets each representing weekly sales numbers for different vehicles.

The Make-Models tab has the lists used to create the drop-down selections.

The Sales tab allows one to create an ad hoc report on the total number of vehicles sold, by Make and Model. Cell B2 is named 'SelectedModel' and used in the formula found in column E, Total Sold.

Problem: When I select Honda, for example in B2 of the Sales worksheet then select Accord in cell B3 of the same. The results returned in E2, E3 and E4 are 2, 3 and 4, respectively, instead of 8, 3 and 7.

2 Honda Accords were sold on Monday and 6 on Tuesday of the same week. My formula is only returning the first matched value of 2 whereas I would like it to return 2+6, 8 for week 1. Same goes for other weeks.

Select any other make and model and notice the problem follows. I believe the error is due to incorrect usage of the formula or incorrect formula altogether.

IF(ISNA(INDEX(Week1!E:E,MATCH(SelectedModel,Week1!B:B,0))),0,
INDEX(Week1!E:E,MATCH(SelectedModel,Week1!B:B,0)))

## Index Function Working Correctly When Hit F9 But Returns Different Result

Aug 22, 2012

I'm compiling a list of names on a separate tab from a column that only lists the names sporadically. Problem: In the formula, the IF provides a TRUE, the row function, and consequently, the INDEX function (when I hit F9) provides the correct "name" and row number, but when I hit return, it provides the text 4 cells beneath what it should.

=IF(ROWS(F\$5:F5)

## VLOOKUP / INDEX / MATCH Function: Match Data From 2 Independent Sets??

Oct 8, 2009

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)

## Using Index / Match Function For Two Column Match Values

Aug 28, 2012

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.

## MATCH Function Returns Unexpected Result

Dec 3, 2013

In the attached file I used =MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(\$B\$2:\$B\$10="",0)) to retrieve the location of the first empty cell.

When using the "Evaluate Formula" tool, it is clear that the position in the array created by the INDEX function is the 6th. Nevertheless, the final outcome is 9, being the last cell in range.

## Nesting Index / Match Function Within Vlookup Function?

Dec 3, 2013

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.

[Code]....

This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. \$E3 is the date required, \$BA\$1:\$DN\$1 is the range the dates are entered in
Match: Lookup value = \$E3
Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$BA\$1:\$DN\$1
match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. \$A\$4 is the department name, \$B\$434:\$B\$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = \$A\$4
Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$B\$434:\$B\$452
match type = 0

Index: array = \$BA\$434:\$DN\$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

## Function To Returns Biggest Change (+ Or -)

Feb 1, 2010

I have some survey data for 2008 & 2009. I have a column calculating the difference on each question between the two years. I need to show the 20 biggest changes, positive or negative. Which function can I use for this?

## Index/Match: Change Value

Dec 5, 2008

This formula locates on sheet 1. Since i'm trying to reference this number 123456167 to the second sheet with the format that looks like 0123456167, I'm trying to change value so both would be the same but I'm keep getting the #N/A.
=INDEX(Sheet2!\$B\$2:\$C\$399,MATCH((VALUE(A2)),VALUE(sheet2!\$B\$2:\$B\$33),2))

## Using Index Match Function?

Mar 24, 2013

I've been working on a payroll program for my small biz. I'm close to done BUT...When I use the Index Match function in a cell it works great. However I need to copy it down a column to work for pay periods going forward. When I copy it down of course it puts zeros or N/A.

Columns:

Gross Fed FICA Medicare State Net
F G H I J K

Gross is user input. FICA Medicare State and Net are simply calculated on the sheet. But to get Fed Income tax I use the Index Match function and it works perfectly. The rows increment properly with each new user input.

My question: Fed Income tax is dependent on what the Gross is in order to look up the tables with the Index Match function. How do I get the result of the function into column G? Can I increment up Column G and ignore the zeros that dragging the function down G creates?

## Change The Index Number When Match

Jan 16, 2010

I have to do a vlookup in 12 sheets (named ranges)

I use the formula '=vlookup(a1;choose(1;range1;range2; etc);2;0)

In this case I have to change the 'choose index_num' every time to match.

Is it possible to do the lookup without changing the 'choose index_num'?

## INDEX Returns 0 When Cell Not Populated

Mar 28, 2014

See attached formula:

"=INDEX(DATABASE.xls.xlsx!\$AT\$5:\$AT\$2001,MATCH(AR10,DATABASE.xls.xlsx!\$O\$5:\$O\$2001,0))"

Cell AR10 is my target cell and then there are 15 other cells that populate when the correct information is put into cell AR10, but if one of the other cells does not have any information in it, it returns a "0" (zero). I am trying to get the cell to show blank as when I print I don't want a "0" (zero) in every cell that has not got any information.

2 x cells are showing telephone numbers, 1 x landline and 1 x mobile - sometimes we don't have a landline number, so I want the cell to show blank not "0" (zero)

The cell format is set to "text", but I have tried setting it to "general", "number" and finally settled on "text", but all return "0" (zero) if we don't have a number for them.

## Index-match Function Across Different Worksheets?

Mar 31, 2012

I have different worksheets to contains information from different years. To make it comphrensve, I have created a mastersheet which contains all the info across the worksheets. And once I make an entry in the worksheet, I hope the mastersheet can be updated automatically. the function I set is
INDEX('2011-12'!K\$4:K\$7,MATCH(Master!\$B5,'2011-12'!\$B\$4:\$B\$7,0),1).

Yet, my problem is..... once I perform sorting in the mastersheet, the cells are wrongly matched. So, I just wonder how I can revise the function?

## Index And Match Function Not Working?

Sep 27, 2012

I am trying to use index & match function to extract data from data base with has multiple critera in rows as well as cloumns but it is not giving correct results.

Example:

A
B
C
D
E

[Code].....

In C9 I typed =INDEX(\$B\$2:\$E\$6,MATCH(\$A9,\$B\$1:\$E\$1,0),MATCH(\$B9,\$A\$2:\$A\$6,0))

The result I got was #Ref!

what formula should I use in C9 to get 20, C10 to get 5 & so on

FB1 to FB4 are column headers (critera)
GL 1 to GL5 are row headers (critera)

## INDEX And MATCH Function Across Two Worksheets

Apr 5, 2013

I have two worksheets, named as follows:

Worksheet1: SUMMARY
Worksheet2: ART 2013

'ART 2013' contains a list of staff numbers in column C16:C752 and a list of dates in column M16:M752 (formatted as "mm-yyyy")

Within 'SUMMARY' cell G12 contains the date 04-2013.

What I would like to do is achieve a function that will look at 'ART 2013' columns C and M in and where the date in Column M is equal to cell G12 (04-2013) of the 'SUMMARY' worksheet excel will return the Staff Number in 'ART 2013' column C.

## VBA Index Match Function With Errors

Sep 29, 2013

I'm trying to replicate the iferror index match function from excel into vba. The excel version is

=IFERROR(INDEX('billing-data'!B:C,MATCH(C2,'billing-data'!C:C,0)+0,1),"")

Which works fine. In vba I have:

Cells(i, 19) = Application.WorksheetFunction. _
Index(Sheets("billing-data").Range("B:B"), _
Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(Sheets("payment-data").Range("c" & i), _
Sheets("billing-data").Range("C:C"), 0), 1)

There are some mismatches and I get an error message with this which prevents the all the data from being displayed.

I'd like to show Cells(i, 19) as null or blank if there is a mismatch or error.

## Make Index And Match Function Dynamic?

Aug 18, 2014

I have attached a workbook.

I have a calculated value in H2. This value will correspond to values in the table provided. This value is dynamic and will change based on criteria that will be added.

The value H2 is a combination of to "letters" D1 and A2 or A4 and B1 i.e. trace back where the intersection of H2 occurs within the table

In Cells A8 and A9 I am trying to represent which combination of letters will result in an intersection of the value H2. In the example provided it is C and A.

What i would like to do is have Cells A8 and A9 be more dynamic. So if for example the value in H2 changed to say R12,06 then the intersection would be B and B. Therefore Cell A8 = B and Cell A9 = B

The formula is cell A8 and A9 doesn't cater for this as the range is fixed. I need a dynamic range for the index and match function based on the where the intersection of H2 happens to be in the table.

## Taking An Index Match Function One Step Further!

Apr 8, 2009

I'm matching ISO country codes to country names.

This works great as long as the 'lookup_value' portion of the match fuction matches the 3 digit code on Sheet3.

Is it possible to return my desired result without this matching perfectly.

So a value in 'Sheet1 Column A' that begins A344xxxxxxx will return the same result in 'Sheet1 Column F' as if 'Column A' just had a 3 digit number.

## Index/Match Function Inside An Array

Jan 20, 2010

Solution for all: {=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(Sheet1!\$A\$2:\$A\$16,\$F\$34:\$F\$40,INDEX(Sheet1!\$B\$2:\$K\$16,0,MATCH(T\$10,Sheet1!\$B\$1:\$K \$1,0))),U34:U40)}

Say I have an Excel workbook with two sheets: Employee Hours and Employee Wages. On the Hours sheet I have 31 columns (Jan1 - Jan31) with inputs for the number of hours worked by each employee by day. On the Wages sheet I have listed the same 31 columns with their wages each day (I do this to factor in wage increases that occur fairly often).

My goal is to use an INDEX/MATCH function to calculate the total daily compensation for each day on the Wages sheet by multiplying hours*wages for all employees that day. Here's the code I'm using:

## Using MATCH And INDEX Function With Multiple Criteria?

Feb 9, 2010

We're selling language courses that have a different price depending on when a course is taken. We're trying to build a price quote application that needs to look up a certain school and course and price driven by a start date.

How can I build a lookup function that says: pick the price of school X and course Y when the start date falls between dd/mm/yyyy and dd/mm/yyyy?

I manage to build a look up function with MATCH and INDEX when the condition of start date is exactly matched but dont know how to instruct it to match a value between a start and end date.

## Index Match Vs D Function To Summarize Data

Oct 24, 2008

I have a project that has several worksheets of "summarized" data all pulled from one worksheet. The data worksheet is run through an external program and pasted into the workbook to update the information.

To this point I have used tons of index match array formula's to pull the information but I've found this to be extremely inefficient because there are hundreds if not thousands of formulas, and it takes several minutes to update. The file is also around 3MB which is way too big.

I was thinking about using VBA to simplify the worksheets, but then I came across an article about D_Functions and I'm thinking they may be the solution to my problems.

However there is one catch...I'm not sure how I would build these formulas to work in my worksheets. I understand the principle behind the D_Functions, but I can't seem to grasp the concept of integration and making it work in my scenario.

I've attached an example of this workbook, it has most of the forumla's deleted out to reduce the file size, but it should give you an idea of what I'm doing. Once you open it you'll have to unhide some columns to get to the nitty gritty of the sheet.

Feel free to take a gander...I'm open to any suggestions you may have at this point (except to trash the whole project hehehehe ). If you find a solution please explain the concept behind it. I really want to learn how to make this work rather than plugging in someone elses formulas.

## Translate Index / Match Function To VBA Code

Mar 17, 2013

How do I translate this to a vba code?

=INDEX('Workers List'!D3:D13,MATCH('Workers List'!C4,'Workers List'!C3:C13,0),1)

what i have done is

test = Application.Index(Sheets("Workers List").Range("C3;C13"), Application.Match(1, Sheets("Workers List").Range("D3:D13"), 0), 1)

But i keep getting an error, may i know whats wrong with it?

## 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.

## HOW TO Stop #NA Appearring In Index And Match Function

Nov 11, 2009

I have this equation

=(INDEX(abc!B8:D18,MATCH(Sheet1!C39,abc!A8:A18),MATCH(Sheet1!D39,percentiles,0)))

it gives me this #N/A. I'd rather have it show \$0.00.
