Looking Up Text And Returning Scores

Jan 18, 2007

| item1, item2, item4 |

Elsewhere I have a set of points for these like this:

| item1 | 4 |
| item2 | 2 |
| item3 | 3 |
| item4 | 1 |

(the |'s represent cell borders, if it isn't obvious)

What I want is a formula that can grab the text, then produce a total score. So, for my example, the result would be 7, totalling the scores for item1, item2, and item4.

I know that the score lookup is trivial (just a VLOOKUP), but I can't figure out how to do the scan for the data from a single cell. I want the items to remain in a single cell if possible.

Find Top X Scores Out Of 50 Scores?

Aug 17, 2009

There are scores in B1:B10 (10 scores). I want to take the top 8 scores. So I used this formula which works just fine.

=SUM(LARGE(B1:B10,1),LARGE(B1:B10,2),LARGE(B1:B10,3),LARGE(B1:B10,4),LARGE(B1:B10,5),LARGE(B1:B10,6) ,LARGE(B1:B10,7),LARGE(B1:B10,8))

But I'm trying to make the formula a bit more dynamic. Is there anyway to have a set of data in B1:B50 (50 scores will probably be the most) and take the top x scores? X will be set in a separate cell (lets just say A1)?

Map Scores To Scaled Scores

Feb 13, 2008

I have a raw score for each case. I need to map those raw scores to scale scores. For example, a raw score of 0 to 0.49 maps to a scale score of 120, a raw score of 0.5 to 0.99 maps to a scaled score of 110, etc. There are a total of 13 possible scaled scores (120, 110, 100, ... 20, 10, 0). Is there a way to do this in Excel2003? (Note, if anyone on the list is 'bilingual' (Excel and SPSS), I'm looking for the Excel equivalent of the SPSS command RECODE raw (lo thur .49=120), (.5 thru .99=110), etc. INTO scale.

Returning Text Against Text Based Criteria?

Jul 19, 2014

I need to analyse more than 4500 product of my company. I have data in more then 20 separate excel worksheets, I need a function or a vba code to return the text against my product names.

I my main file i have the names of the products, sales and purchase data and analysis. In other files I have the categories list against those products. In the main file the products are according to brand and categories have different products from different brands grouped together. I want a function something similar to sumif but for text.

Example

What I need
Art no. Product Name Brand Group Category Subcategory
y-123 abc lux hair care shampoo hair shine shampoo
A-123 bca loreal skin care anti acne anto acne soap

Main file
Art no. Product Name Brand Group Category Subcategory Q1 sales Q2 sales Q3 sales

A-123 file with categories against respective products.xlsxmain file what i have.xlsxmain file.xlsxwhat i need.xlsx

Category files

Art no. Product Name Brand Group Category Subcategory

Returning Text Values From Text Or Numeric?

Jun 4, 2012

I have two (2) different values in the same column one value is text (INV) the other is a time date stamp 05/18/2012 10:48:32. The text i want to return in a seperate column for these two is if it is INV then the result is "PENDING" if it is a date 05/18/2012 etc. then the result would be "PAID" example:

Payment Status
05/08/2012 10:30:12
INV
05/17/2012 08:27:37
INV
and so on...................

Returning A Numerical Value From Text

Oct 25, 2013

I'm trying to streamline my spreadsheet a bit. Sometime last year I managed to use the formula found (on the attached file) in cell K4 to assign a numerical value to a lettered grade. However, it's been a year or so since I thought about it and so I've completely forgotten how to edit it to make it more appropriate for this spreadsheet!

Essentially what I'm trying to do is a workaround for what I've already done in columns E and F: I'm trying to show the difference between two grades (letters) as a numerical value. Is there a way to do this, or is the VLOOKUP work around I've used in columns E and F going to be the simplest way?

Returning Specific Text Only

Mar 21, 2006

here is my text strong:

PO: Trans:DC:MMU - DO NOT BREAKTICKET:ALLOC:RE ORDER OF # 103157131,
101915744. MMU - DO NOT BREAKAP:

I want to return text starting with ALLOC but stop at and not include AP.

Returning Text Based On Max Value In A Table?

Apr 14, 2014

I am looking to return text based on the maximum value in a table.

Dog
2

Cat
10

Horse
4

Fish
27

Lion
1

Let's call the column with the animals over it "A" and the one with the numbers "B", and the rows are 1-5 to make explanations easier

I am looking to have a formula return the name of the animal with the highest three numbers (fish, cat, horse), but don't need the numbers. I am pretty confident this would be an index match formula, but I'm not too familiar with those functions.

Returning Number As Text In IF Formula

Oct 6, 2009

This is probably a pretty basic question, but I can't find an answer in Excel help or on the interwebs. I have an IF formula and I'd like 0 returned if the statement is false (e.g. =IF(A1<>0, A1, 0)); however, I would like the 0 returned as text. I've tried the TEXT function and using ` in different places, but all to no avail.

Returning A Text In A =minimum Function

Dec 11, 2009

I have 3 columns of numerical data. In my fourth column, I would like to return the minimum value from the 3 previous columns (=min). However, instead of returning the lowest number, I would like it to return the column title (=text) of the lowest number. I haven't been able to locate a function that does this.

Calculate A Formula Instead Of Returning Text

Mar 28, 2006

I am compiling data from several different, variable, worksheets. I am using
concatenate to add the name of each worksheet into a formula to pull the
appropriate data.

However, it is returning the text of the formula instead of
the results of the formula. How can I make it calculate the result instead of
simply displaying the formula text?

Returning Most Occurring Text In A Range

Jun 6, 2014

Store 1
Store 2
Store 3
Store 4
Top Selling
Second
Third
Fourth

[code]....

I am trying to find two formulas:

Formula 1: Formula 1 will be entered into rows 6:9 (in this example). I need it to return the highest selling product (by store) in order form highest selling to lowest selling. I have a makeshift formula already but it cannot report in order (only the highest selling) and it cannot get past the one return index( limitation. When it finds two high sellers it prioritizes the ranking based on how well that product has sold across the other stores. Product 1 sold 13 times across all stores. Product 2 sold 9 times across all stores. So if product 1 & 2 tie for Store 3 (as shown in the example) Product 1 would be chosen based on its sales across the row.

Formula 2 : Same as formula 1 but with Stores (in column 6-9). It reports the highest selling store and treats ties the same way as formula 1.

Returning A Text Value Based On 2+ Conditions

Jun 17, 2009

I'm trying to lookup values that are a combination of text and numbers. The difficulty is I need to use two criteria to look it up. I've been trying to use a combination of Sumproduct and Index,Match but it doesn't seem to be working. I think I need to add some sort of text function in there. Below is some data for example purposes.

A B C E F G
M S Get value from G M S 5G
M T M T 6M
M U M U 7H
M V M V 8K

Web Query Returning Text But Not Numbers

Oct 3, 2009

I have this web query to retrieve Stock Market data for individual scrips which used to work fine till 2 weeks ago:
[url]

Since then all it returns is the text in the tables. Numbers eg dates and stock prices come as blanks.

These show up alright in the browser (Mozilla as well IE).

Some other tables at this site plugged into query return complete data. eg [url]

I tried many different scrips with same results.

Since it was working fine till 2 weeks ago AND other tables at this site are working fine, I suppose the site changed something.

Returning Number From Text String

Jul 24, 2007

I have been trying a few formulas to return numbers from a string of text. The problem I am having is that there are more than one set of numbers that I need returned.

Here is an example of the text entered in F2

"K2PT bus structure [2 locations] & strain structure South West of L9L12-12 [1 location] / Use #4/0, std, cu conductor, connector Cat ID#10842 at structure leg & connector Cat ID#9655 at #4/0, std, cu gnd loop to connect #4/0, std, cu gnd loop to str leg."

What I need returned in a cell H2 is the numbers beside the Cat ID#

10842, 9655

I tried a Return Right Value formula, but I think because there are more than one possible value it isn't working properly.

Returning Text If Data Meets Certain Criteria

Apr 24, 2014

IN column J(on sheet 1) i want it to return text (OB) if Sheet 1 column A1 equals Sheet2 Columns A1:A500. And if Sheet 1 column A1 do not equal Sheet2 Columns A1:A500 return text(IB).

Returning The Displayed Text Of A Date Cell

Nov 20, 2008

Take the displayed date from a cell, in this case formatted as yyyymmdd, and simply display the date as plain text, not converted to the 1900 date system. For example, I have a date cell that reads 20080610, but everything I have tried returns 39609. But I want it to return 20080610 in plain text so that I can use RIGHT and LEFT functions to extract the year, month and day.

Returning Text From Nested IF And Vlookup Statements

Jul 26, 2006

I am trying to return a text statement using nested IF statements. In order to find the value in the IF statements, I have to use lookups.

Example: ....

Returning Row / Column Number Of Cell That Contains Particular Text

Jul 16, 2014

I am looking to write a formula that will return the row or column number of the cell that contains a particular text within the string. I know it can be done with script, but need it as a formula. Also, to add another level of difficulty, I'd like it to be a traditional formula, no special keystroke to activate. It will be used within a much larger formula.Ex. If G5 has the string "CURRENT DATE" in it, and I look for "DATE", the formula would return 7 for the column or 5 for the row.

Vlookup - Referring To A Column Other Than The First And Returning Text

Sep 28, 2006

I have two worksheets. On one worksheet will be a place to enter a five digit number. In the adjacent cell, I want to search on the second worksheet in a three-column area for that same five digit number. The five-digit numbers on the second worksheet are located in the third column and the text I want returned from the second column. I cannot change the order of the columns as the first worksheet will be an "add-on" worksheet to a widely used spreadsheet within our company (this spreadsheet already has the second worksheet formatted).

Finding And Returning Unique Text From Incomplete Table?

May 11, 2014

I am building a table that assigns three roles to chores: Accountable, Helper1, and Helper2. I have a "user interface" tab, where there is a dropdown list where particular chores can be selected. I am looking to have the people in each role for the selected chore returned into the cells. I have attached an example file to clarification. For example, I am looking to have the name (Mike, Shannon, Tom, Blake, Kelsey, Sam) from tab #2 populated into the related cells C3, D3, and E3 on tab#1. I think it's possible with a long imbedded IF function, but I am looking for a more simple solution if possible.

Sort Dates Linked To Formulas Also Returning Text

Jun 18, 2007

I have a list of football fixtures that I want to pace in date order. The fixtures are however linked to a grid which has the following formula =IF(FIXTURES!C1="","",FIXTURES!C1 )

so that a zero doesn't appear until a result is actually added. Unfortunately when you sort the fixtures into date order the grid still looks at the original square, NOT the moved one appertaining to the fixture.

Find First Blank Row Ignoring Formulas Returning Empty Text

Oct 2, 2007

I have a range that is filled with formulae and the the number of rows in the range with data changes as the formulae reevaluate the inputs. So the rows with visible data changes between one row and 200 rows. By looking at the output in the first column of the range, Col M and finding the last row where the formulae returns data, I need a way of selecting across the columns of the range (M1 through to Qi) where i is the number of rows that have data in.

Returning Row Numbers Where One Word Contained In Text String - Multiple Occurrences

Oct 30, 2013

I am trying to identify the row(s) where a match occurs when there can be multiple occurrences of the match.

A
B
C

1
john brown
Brown
True

2
Cathy Smith

3
Brown excavating company

4
XYZ Corp

5

The first test I ran in cell C1 with the information above was to determine if "Brown" was located in the range of A1:A5 using formula:
=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH("*"&B1&"*",A1:A5,0))=TRUE,"True","False")

In the case of the word "Brown" it occurs in the range of A1:A5 three times, so the result of the above formula would be "True"

Now what I would like to do is return the locations, in this case the row number(s), where the word brown is contained range of A1:A5 because in the case of the word Brown, it occurs three separate times in the range of A1:A5. I would like the resulting value of the formula in this case to be "1, 3, 5" indicating the word Brown occurs in rows 1, 3, and 5. The formula also needs to work in case there is only one match as well.

I tried using the below array formula:
={MATCH(FALSE,ISERROR(SEARCH(B1,'Working List of Vendors'!\$A\$1:\$A\$5)),0)}
But it would only return the first occurrence of the match which in this case would be row 1, or "1"

Comparing Customer Names In Rows And Returning Text Data In Different Cells If Same

Jan 26, 2010

I've got a list of donor names, names listed multipled times in Column A, each row with different donation data. For instance:

Sheet 1

A1 - Mary Jones, B1- Internet Donation
A2 - Mary Jones, B2 - Silent Auction Purchase
A3 - Mary Jones, B3 - Event Ticket Purchase
A4 - Gary Jones, B4 - Foundation Grant
A5 - Gary Jones, B5 - Internet Donation
A6 - Sara Parker, B6 - Event Ticket Purchase

I want Excel to compare rows A1 and A2, and if the name has not changed, enter the donation data from Column B into another sheet that will just list that person's name once:

Sheet 2

A1 - Mary Jones, B1- Donation1, C1 -Donation2, D1 - Donation3
A2 - Gary Jones, B2 - Donation1, C2 - Donation2, D1 - Donation3 (which would return no value because there the name changes

Does this involve IF, MATCH or VLOOKUP formulas?

Top 5 Scores

Jul 7, 2009

Is it possible to make a top 5 scores section?

Ive been reading up on Arrays and how to use Arrays etc so i believe that it could be done with an array but i could be complete wrong.

what i have is players names in A4 and there averages in H4. i have 22 players listed but i want to take the top 5 scores from h4 and display them in a different section with there as so: NAME(A4): AVERAGE(h4) repeated 5 times and updates Automatically.

Look Up Highest Scores

May 9, 2007

What is the best way to look up and return the 10 best performers out of a list of say, 40. I have columns representing people's names, their school's name, their age and their total score. The following formula is to add up the 4 highest scores for each school: SUM(LARGE((\$A\$2:\$A\$499=Y2)*(\$C\$2:\$C\$499),{1,2,3,4})) (entered as an array) Now I want to display the 10 best performing schools (who will be determined by calculating their 4 best scores).

Placing Value On Bottom 3 Scores

Mar 3, 2014

I am trying to do the following:

901 > 0 pts
851 - 900 gets 1 pts
LOWEST 3 scores gets 2 pts

Example of what i have for the top three
=IF(D8="-",0,IF(RANK(D8,D\$8:D\$34)<=3,2,IF(D8<79%,0,1)))

I have tried to change it but cant get it to work for the bottom 3 scores.
