# Index And Match Function Across Multiple Rows With Repeating Names?

Jun 4, 2014

I have a data set where the row headings repeat a lot. I have 5 headers repeated probably 30-45 times each. Eg. Truck, Car, Van, Tank, House, Car

At the moment I am using the formula...
=INDEX(\$B\$2:\$M\$45,MATCH(\$O\$2,\$A\$2:\$A\$45,0),MATCH(O4,\$B\$1:\$M\$1,0))

which will only return the result of the first occurrence of the cell it is looking for (for eg. I am looking for the values in the cells in columns labelled 'Car', is it possible for it to look past the first occurrence in the data set and find all the values?

## Index And Match With Repeating Values Without Repeating First Found Name

Apr 20, 2006

sorting data I use in a workbook for athletics. I've really chopped down my workbook for upload, In the worksheet "Leaderboard" I can call up stats for different lifts, and it finds (in this case) the top 5 lifts and the names for the kids that have those corresponding lifts.

My problem is that when two or more kids have the same lift, it will only call up the name of the first instance of that lift. You can see this in the "Leaderboard" worksheet, and the name "Adams, Andrew" appears for both lifts of 75. I would appreciate any help on how to correct this, as I've searched the Internet for weeks now looking for a solution. I've tried experimenting with different things as well, all to no avail.

## INDEX And MATCH Function Using Dynamic Worksheet Names

Apr 9, 2012

I have an excel workbook with a dynamic dependent drop down list setup, works a treat on the first worksheet i set it up on.

However here's the problem, my workbook contains a good handful of worksheets each named to reflect the certificate on the page, i need the drop down list to work on each tab. problem is when i setup the index/match function it requires a specific sheet name to make it work i.e.

However what i need it to do is reference the worksheet name, as new ones get added and names may change, something like

However this doesn't work, i do have a cell on each page that holds the Sheet name using the function:

=MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,256)

But I cant even get it to use that cell as a reference in my formula.

## INDEX MATCH For Repeating Lookup Value

Jan 22, 2014

So I have values in two colums like so -

A

aluminium
steel
plastic
aluminium

[Code]...

I now have another worksheet wherein I want a cell to recall a Value from range "A", using the code in range "B". So for example I'd want want my cell to search for the code to the left of it, "6464", and bring up value "Aluminium". HOWEVER, and here is where I feel it gets tricky - I intend to drag that cell down across a column - but when the cell encounters "6464" again, instead of showing "Aluminium", I this time want it to show the next entry under "6464" - "steel".

I hope this is clear. I'd post the excel spreadsheet but it is very large. Basically I want to INDEX MATCH function to remember its already recalled a specific value for code "6464" (in this case "aluminium") and to recall the the OTHER value related to this code.

My excel has a range of Purchase orders, and a range of the materials ordered under that PO number. I'm making a sheet that drags out all the PO numbers from my worksheet (which will have repetitions of 4-5 at a time), and then using those POs to find each material ordered that corresponds to that number.

## 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 Function For Multiple Linked Variables

Nov 21, 2005

I have a worksheet that has 6 columns of numerical data that all column
datasets are referenced together for each row. So for example the data
in row 5 in all colums is related.

Column C through F have 4 numbers that refer to the data in the first 2
columns. These are also ordered by row.

I need to look in column A for 0.00, and column B for 3.14 Both of
these must be in the same row or I need the closest value. When these
values are found in columns A & B, return the values from the same row
in Columns C through F.

## Excel 2007 :: Index Match VBA Multiple Worksheets Many Rows

Jul 30, 2014

I have a workbook that has 5 worksheets. Worksheet1 is the Summary tab, Worksheets 2-5 contains data all sitting under the same headings and formats however vary in row number e.g.

Worksheet 2 - 63000 rows
Worksheet 3 - 48000 rows
Worksheet 4 - 23000 rows
Worksheet 5 - 21000 rows

In Worksheet 1 Column AQ contains a Cost Centre number which I would like to extract the parent description of in Column BI of the same Worksheet and then the child description into Column BJ. Worksheet 1 currently has 16000+ rows and grows daily.The location of the Cost Centre in Worksheets 2-4 is contained in Column A and the Parent Description in Column W and the Child Description in Column Y.I am currently using this INDEX MATCH formula to search all worksheets but as you can imagine it's tediously slow and needless to say sometimes not reporting/updating the values correctly likely because it's frozen.

=VLOOKUP(AQ2,INDIRECT("'"&INDEX(Sheet1!\$A\$1:\$A\$4,MATCH(TRUE,
COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&Sheet1!\$A\$1:\$A\$4&"'!A2:A63355"),AQ2)>0,0))&"'!A2:W63355"),23,0) this looks up Cost Centre in Worksheet 1 Column AQ and returns the results from Column W in Worksheets 2-4 to Worksheet 1 Column BI

## 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.

## 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.

## 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.

## 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?

## 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:

## 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

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.

## Match And Index Function Not Returning The Correct Field?

Sep 29, 2012

I am currently using the Match and index functions to search for specific criteria and return specific data based on that criteria. The problem is the formula is returning the first value at the beginning of the month rather then the end of the month value that I am asking for. I have my criteria set to zero so it should be a perfect match. with the live worksheet I have several tabs for different years. I want to take the end of month balance on each of those year tabs for each month in each fiscal year and add them together. My formula only has the one month because I am unable to get it to work much less adding in all of the years information. I have the employees choosing EOM for the last transaction posted during that month and that calculates the month number in the field next to it. I was thinking I could use the match to look for a specific month in that column and return the balance adjacent to it at that point.
