Looking Up Values Using Multiple Criteria - Funky Result

Apr 6, 2014

Spreadsheet 'Raw Table' has many, many rows, and a dozen columns of raw input data. Each row has date, number, and text fields.

Spreadsheet 'Dashboard' is a somewhat simple one page summary of one day's worth of data entry from Raw Table. Dashboard isn't a simple table, but more form-like in appearance (not sure if that matters). Essentially, the values from Raw Table are spread out in different locations in Dashboard, and not just in a row.

The Dashboard fields gets their values from Raw Table based multiple criteria, the most important being a manually inputted date entry at the top of the Dashboard. The other criteria are simple numbers (ie, 1, 2, 3, 4....) built into the formula. So a set of criteria for one particular cell in the dashboard could be: 4/6/2014, 1, 3. Those 3 criteria are unique identifiers: there is only one match, ever. If those criteria are met, then a value from a specific spot in that row from Raw Data is placed in the dashboard field.

Here is one formula example for one such field in Dashboard:

=INDEX(('RAW DATA'!$D$1:$D$20000),SUMPRODUCT(('RAW DATA'!$A$1:$A$20000=$D$1)*('RAW DATA'!$B$1:$B$20000=1)*('RAW DATA'!$C$1:$C$20000=3)*ROW('RAW DATA'!$D$1:$D$20000)))

The first sumproduct criteria is a match for the date in Raw Data's column A with the manually inputted date in Dashboard located at D1.

The second criteria is match for the value in column B with a value of 1. The third criteria is match for the value in column C with a value of 3. (Again, this is an example. The 1,3 set can be any specific combo from 1,1 to 8,8. Thus, a day's data can have no more than 64 records of a dozen date, number and text fields.)

The Index function is obviously array,row,column. So this example index function results in the contents of column D in the row that the sumproduct function generates.

This dashboard spreadsheet works perfectly everywhere except four fields (out of 100+ instances of the same formula). In the faulty spots, the value that the index function is returning in Dashboard is basically the contents of column D in Raw Table in the row that corresponds to the place the formula is located in Dashboard. It's almost like there's an error in the formula result, and the index is defaulting to the row number in Dashboard. But I've tested this 8 ways til Sunday. I can even straight-up copy these four faulty fields to another part of the dashboard, and the results are magically correct. And I've checked to see that the actual sumproduct function result is returning the correct row for these fields. I don't have an answer as to why it's defaulting to the formula row number in just these four locations, and not the row value that the sumproduct function is correctly producing.

I've thought maybe it was a data type problem in Raw Data, but that route produced a dead end. It has to be something with the Dashboard. I'm going to start over with a new Dashboard spreadsheet, and see what happens. One thing I did was, early in development of the dashboard, use ctrl-shift-enter in the first faulty field, then went back and changed the formula wholesale to something different, and copied that cell to (at least I think) the three other faulty spots. But if I went back and completely changed the formulas and did away with the brackets, the cells should be fresh, no?

Lookup Multiple Criteria & Sum Result On Multiple Criteria

Oct 21, 2006

I am trying to solve a problem. I am currently using this formula
= SUMPRODUCT(--(Sheet2!B2:Sheet2!B300="MARKETING"),--(Sheet2!D2:Sheet2!D300="200612"),Sheet2!E2:Sheet2!E300)

This formula works for me as it is but I would like to add more months to 200612. I want this to also be 200701 and 200702. In another cell there will be up to 10 months. Is there a way to do a Vlookup or something that will look up these months in another table, rather than keep typing them out in the formula?? Otherwise my formula will be very long.

So the info looks like this in excel
MARKETING 200612 -10
MARKETING 200701 -25
MARKETING 200708 -50
ECONOMICS 200709 -30

The info goes on and on. The two variables are the MARKETING column and the month column. My problem is that I would like a seperate table that can be the months. So 200612 and 200701 is one table, and 200708 and 200709 is another table. The table changes often so I dont want to mess with the formulas, rather a table.

Multiple Criteria Lookup Text Result?

Dec 10, 2013

So basically I am looking to build a formula that would take this information and return a text value.

if it could work anything like this sumproduct formula to bring back text that would be awesome:

But instead of a formula that returns a sum of values, the return is a single value. The three criteria will always be unique. There will never be a case where there is a duplicate of all three.

Matching Multiple Criteria On Single Rows And Returning Result?

Feb 5, 2013

I have two workbooks at the moment, one which holds a whole host of customer and accounts details and another which holds only the customer details. What I'm trying to do is cross reference the two to determine if a customers details appear on both and if they do highlight this, ultimately I'd like it to pull the customers account number back but even if it highlights a match that would be sufficient.

The only unique criteria I have to do this are customer surname and customer postcode.

In the Customer details spreadsheet I'm attempting to enter a formula which will look at the specific surname & postcode held on the row in which it is entered. It will then look at all of the rows on the other spreadsheet and determine whether any of them meet both criteria.

If they do I'd like it to display "match" if they don't I'd like it to display "no match"

Compare Values In Multiple Columns And Return A Result

Mar 17, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with three years worth of data for a property I manage. Each column has cost data for the year and the specific department/cost for that year as the row value.

I have a column between the years that calculates the percent of gross revenue for the specific department/cost.

I would like to find (or create) a formula that will compare the percentage (or specific cost) for the three years within the specific row and if the increase year over year over year exceeds a trigger value it returns something (check me out/true/false) whatever.

The cost items for the property are in the hundreds so I'm trying to come up with a way to quickly see what specific cost items are going up (or down) more rapidly then what would be considered normal.

Multiple Options Cell Values Based On Multiple Criteria Variable Inputs?

Mar 18, 2013

I maintain the data flow at my work. We send and receive the data using excel files with specific formatting that I then upload to the database. Each time I send or receive the excel file I must log them, this is what my code question refers to.

I use RDBMerge to merge all the contents of the 100 plus excel files into one worksheet. The first part of the macro cleans up the merge data for use in the log (i have attached an example of the clean data and finished log).

The blue shaded area of the "Raw_Data" is what the clean data looks like, the yellow column is what current macro records for each record.

As you can see by the example the Raw_Data is only two files LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 & LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121230_01, each with more that one record.

The log code in column "H" Is based on this criteria:
First Letter of the Unique ID in column "E" - O, M, or L
Program Type in Column "F" - U or R
1. O-U = U
2. O-R = RU
3. M-U = U2
4. M-R = R2U
5. L-R = R

You will note that Columns G-R of the "Log Sheet" correspond to the "Record Type" found in Column "G" of the "Raw_Data" sheet.

This is the area where my skill at using scripting dictionaries fails.

The results for the log list each file only once, but the log code for each corresponding "Record Type" in columns G-R of the "Log Sheet" must contain each unique instance of the code. In other words

if LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 contains an O-U with an "A" Record Type and an M-R with an "A" Record Type; then, on the log sheet there needs to be the codes "U/R2U" in the cell intersection of the LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 record row and "A" column (which is column "G")

So, If the File contains one of each code for each Record Type the corresponding cell must house one of each code separated by a "/" without any spaces. This means the cell value could no code, or one code and all the variations in between to all five codes. Also, for ease of human reading the log codes should be concatenated in the 1-5 order that I listed them in (U/RU/U2/R2U/R)

Here is my code so far.

Option Explicit
Sub test()
Dim dic As Object, a, i As Long, rng As Range, e, w, n As Long
Set dic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

Excel 2003 :: Formula For Counting Values Across A Range Using Multiple Criteria Across Multiple Sheets

Feb 9, 2014

I have saved this on a 2010 workbook as I am at home but this will be used on a 2003 workbook.

I have several projects on one spreadsheet which multiple users will be working and I am trying to create a summary sheet of the work carried out.

Each user is expected to carry out a task on each row of the data held in each worksheet (research, call, update etc) and each task (Option 1-5) is assigned a value. Each user is expected to meet a certain level of points per day to calculate productivity.

I am looking for a sumproduct along the lines of the summary sheet attached but mine just takes one sheet into consideration and I need one for all sheets.

Count Rows Meeting Multiple Criteria Of Multiple Values

Aug 10, 2009

I am trying to find a formula to count rows that meet multiple criteria, but one of the criteria can be multiple values. I have a list of people with a list of clients that they are responsible for. Each person is responsible for 10-20 clients. Every day I run a report that shows the project worksheets submitted for each client and if money has been awarded or not.

I'm wondering if there is a way to count, for each person, the number of project worksheets that show "awarded" in column K. That would mean that I would have to look for, for each person, any of their multiple clients in column B and "awarded" in column K.

I am trying to put the formula in D2:D9, as I use A2:D9 for a chart. O1:P79 contain the names of the people and the applicants that they are responsible for. A17:D158 contains the list of project worksheets (updated daily). I used =SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(B17:B999,P1:P14)) to count the actual number of project worksheets for each person, but I can't figure out a way to modify that to add in the "awarded" criteria also.

Fill In The 3 Criteria Fields, Calculate The Result, Copy The Result, And Place It Into The Correct Place On The Table

Oct 19, 2006

I have a macro that imputs data from an external database and puts it into a temporary worksheet. This data has 3 columns (ID, Date, Amount). I am then making another sheet which has X number of tables (one for each ID), with the years being the column headings, and months being the row headings. ie.

| ID X
| +------+------+------+--->
| | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 |
| Jan | $100 | $250 | $300 |
| Feb | $200 | $300 | $200 |
| Mar | $300 | $250 | $100 |
| Sum | $600 | $800 | $600 |
| +------+------+------+--->

| ID Y
| +------+------+------+--->
| | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 |
| Jan | $100 | $250 | $300 |
| Feb | $200 | $300 | $200 |
| Mar | $300 | $250 | $100 |
| Sum | $600 | $800 | $600 |
| +------+------+------+--->

Currently I have a few hidden fields for the DSUM Criteria. I start making the tables. And then filling in table based off of the month and year. Doing so I need 3 criteria:
>= First Day of the Month
<= Last Day of the Month
= ID #

The problem is it takes Excel too long to fill in the 3 criteria fields, calculate the result, copy the result, and place it into the correct place on the table. Is there another way to get this data into the correct tables faster? Instead of using DSUM?

SUMIF - Using Multiple Criteria (10 To 20 Values)

Jun 12, 2003

Sumif formula. I need to somehow put a loop on the criteria or something...

The formula is sumif(range, criteria, sum range). The problem I am having is that I have about 20 criteria to select, and sumif is designed for one criteria. I know that I can type the exact same formaula in and have something like this...

=SUMIF(D25:D107,Variables!A6,F25:F108) + SUMIF(D25:D107,Variables!A7,F25:F108) + SUMIF(D25:D107,Variables!A8,F25:F108) + SUMIF(D25:D107,Variables!A9,F25:F108)+ SUMIF(D26:D107,Variables!A10,F26:F108)+ SUMIF(D26:D107,Variables!A11,F26:F108)

This is OK for a few variables but some formulas have multiple criteria in excess of 15-20. the other thing is that the criteria list will grow over time as more variable are added, and instead of changing the formulas throughout the spreadsheet, I would like to have a big range that I can slowly fill up as I go along

The ideal situation would be if I could put a range in ( ie A6:A30) and then when I get a new criteria I just add it to this range. This will make administration eaaseier by giving me one location to update data.

I will show you an example.. I want to calculate the amount of petrol I use based on three criteria - BP, Shell, Caltex ( the criteria being petrol stations that come up on my bill).

A/ B / C/ D
Row / description / Amount/Variables
1 / Shell Petrol / $10/Shell
2 / Cat Food/$13/BP
3 / BP Store/$24 / Caltex
4 / Dog Food/$23
5/Shell Petrol / $98
6/Caltex Petrol/$31
7/BP stuff/$30
8/Shell Store/$70

What I have been doing is this...

=sumif(B1:B8,D1,c1:c8) + sumif(B1:B8,D2,c1:c8) + sumif(B1:B8,D3,c1:c8)

If I could somehow get the formula to choose the whole column D as the criteria range and get the 'sum if' to somehow loop so it goes down the d column and does the same calculation, but just changes the criteria variable each time, then instead of changing the formula, I could just add to the D column each time I had a new criteria I wanted to check.

I looked into DSUM and Pivot Tables. DSUM seems to work well with numbers, not variables and Pivot tables did my head in, especially seeing I know that there is a way to do this in a formula based way..
