# If / Vlookup Display Result Not Formula

Dec 8, 2009
Hopefully you will be able to help again. Is it possible to do a vlookup that references data on other tabs within the worksheet so that the result of the formula is in the cell not the formula.

So if my vlookup was =vlookup(a2,$a$1:$b$12,3,0) and the result was john smith i want just john smith in the cell. I know about copy and paste values but i was looking for a more automatic way. One that doesn't need intervention.

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

I have a formula in A1 that I would like to execute from A2. I want the A1 to display the formula (so no "="), but I would like cell A2 to execute the formula in A1.

If A1 contains: "SUM(1+2)", how can I get A2 to display "3" without reproducing the formula?

A1: SUM(1+2)

A2: ????

I suppose I'm looking for something like this:

A2: ==A1

But, of course, that doesn't work.

If I do this it gets close:

A2: ="="&A1

But that returns "=SUM(1+2)" instead of executing the formula.

I am using the below formula to find the latest date (column N) based on fund (column G) and Vendor (column O) reference. How can I find (column I) where the balance of that payment is? I know there are formulas like INDIRECT RC[-1] but how to add them to my formula.

{=MAX(IF(Payments!G:G=B4,IF(Payments!O:O=C4,Payments!N:N)))}

Sub startup

Dim numwords As Integer

numwords = WorksheetFunction. CountA("H5:H64")

Range("H1").Select

Selection.FormulaR1C1 = numwords

I have a quick question regarding this simple code thats been drviing me nuts. There x distinct pieces of Data in the range speciifed, but when i run this code, the reply posted in cell H1 is 1, instead of x.

Eventually the code will be built to check if the result is odd or even and then add an entry into the first blank cell if the result is odd.

I am trying to find a way to display text that is the product of a concatenate function in a defined cell, but not to have the function itself in that cell. Basically, I want to have the below function in cell A1. I want to add a command to it to take the result and display it in cell A2.

=CONCATENATE(C5,"_",'Attachment 3-A'!C9:E9,"_",IF(C5="","",IF(C6="MPL",IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Lease","Lease_Contributable",

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Pre-Lease","Managed_Pre-Lease",

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Non-Contributable","Managed_Non-Contributable","Error"))),

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,Sale!B:F,5,FALSE)="Assignable","Lease_Assignable","Managed_Non-Assignable"))))

The reason for this is that I need the cell to be selectable (it is generating a file name that needs to be selected and copied), but I don't want the code behind it to be seen. I can't find a way to make the cell selectable AND hide the formula from being seen when the cell is selected. This is because our people keep copying the formula rather than the resulting text.

I was hoping for something like a DISPLAYIN(target) function, but it doesn't seem to exist.

My VLOOKUP formula is displaying in the cell instead of the result. The formula is VLOOKUP(A1, income_codes, 2, FALSE) and in the formula editor the result (00017) is calculated correctly.

However the cell displays =VLOOKUP(A1, income_codes, 2, FALSE) instead of the answer 00017.

My view options are not set to display formulas. The codes are formatted as text in the range income_codes as they start with zeros.

I have a s/s which is built on IF functions and references other sheets and I have used the s/s in the past without issue. However now I want to ammend the formula a little and excel will only display the formula itself, not the result of the formula. I have tried CTRL ~ to turn on/off the show formula function but this makes no difference.

My reason for changeing the current formula is that I need to turn a 2 (numeric) to 02 (which can be either numeric or text). This is the new formula.

=IF($A4="","",IF(VLOOKUP($A4,HCGTH1_DATA,22)=2,"02",VLOOKUP($a4,HCGTH1_DATA,22)))

Is there an issue with the formula or some setting in excel?

what I would like to do is view a cell result in my userform with out deleting my formula

It works perfect from the excel side but I just cant get it right from the user form side

Ok so cell D6 contains a vlookup formula. I want the vlookup result to appear in my userform. I can get this to work but it overrides the vlookup formula with the result. This means that when I go to use it again it just shows the same result.This is what I have:

Cell D8 has a Combobox with a list of names to select from

this is the formula in cell D6 =VLOOKUP(D8,B107:I754,2,FALSE) This retrieves the selected customers account number from the combobox. I need my userform to display the account number with out erasing the formulas because I will need to search for more account numbers after.

I have named the textbox in my userform Customeraccountb

I am trying to write a formula where the column header of the row in which a value other than 0 exists, will display for each instance (row) where a value exists in an array spanning 3 columns. So the result cell could be any of the three column headers, or a combination thereof.

I started the formula in P2 of the GL Detail-2012 tab. File attached.

Here is what I started: =INDEX($M$1:$O$1,SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF($M$2:$O$67756,))). Not working.

I've got results in row 3 - 16 386 and sometimes these results are exactly the same in some rows. What I now would need is row AB to display only one of each result and row AH to display how many percentages of the time this particular result appears.

I created a simple auto numbering function whereby Cell A7 contained =Row()-6, and Cell A8 contained =(A7+1). I then shift, and pasted the contents of cell A8 until cell A600. My aim is to simply copy the increments of 1 - 600 into another column. However when i copy and paste i'm also copying the initial underlying formula ie: =( A?+1), Is there a way to copy the results, not the formula?

I am trying to display the result of a custom VBA function as a label on a userform. The function is called and takes arguments from three text boxes on the userform. I attached it to the exit parameter. (This may be part of the problem; I'm not sure).

There seem to be two problems, first all the text boxes don't always contain data, but because the arguments are not optional, I get a type mismatch error when the code runs (I tried switching some of them to optional, but it didn't help as you can see from my 'commented code).

The other problem is that even when all the arguments seem to be met (i.e. the text boxes all have data), I still get a compile error that the argument is not optional. This only happens if I try and pass the result to some aspect of the userform. As you can see from the last coded line in the custom function, if I assign it to a range on the worksheet, it functions fine.

Private Sub txtStartDate_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)

Dim StartDate As Date

Dim EndDate As Date

If IsDate(Me.txtStartDate.Value) Then

StartDate = Me.txtStartDate.Value

Me.txtStartDate.Value = Format(StartDate, "m/d/yyyy")

Else: MsgBox "Please enter a date"

End If.............

I want to make a formula based on 2 times ex: 10:07:00 and 10:09:00. This formula should display "intime" if the diference between both is under 20 minutes, "outime" if the diference is above 20 minutes and it should display "error" if the time is under 0 minutes (this will only happen when someone makes a mistake typing in the time. For example 10:37:00 and 10:36:00)

I have a pivot table and perhaps that isnt the best way to do this. (Sample attached). Ultimately I need to display two columns only:

Application (ColA) Business (ColC)

There are three columns of data.

Applications (ColA) Usage(ColB) Business (ColC)

There are multiple instances of the same application in ColA, ColB has usage =true or blank and ColC has multiple instances of the same business.

Based on the count of Application in ColA, and the count of Usage =True, I need to return the Business with the MAX count.

Note: the usage cannot be a filter, it must be a count.

Currently I am working on a data entry form for CRM database using Excel. Now i am stuck at filtering and displaying the data from the spread sheet to the user form.

There are three text boxes to key in the filter criteria and a button which will filter the data from the spreadsheet based on the criteria in the three text boxes. Then the whole row where the filtered data resides will be displayed on text boxes on the user form.
