## Lookup Column Header Based On Cell Value

Aug 11, 2009

I have a spreadsheet an excerpt of which is as follows:

K L M N
1 Doors Security Vehicle Key
2 TRUE FALSE FALSE FALSE
3 FALSE TRUE TRUE FALSE
4 FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE

Want I want to happen is to return the column header where there for a cell which contains "TRUE" in a blank column. If there isn't a cell with the value "TRUE" then to return "N/A". In the above example in blank column P for Row 2 would be "Doors", Row 3 would be "Security,Vehicle" and Row 4 would be "N/A".

In my actual spreadsheet I have 12 columns (L to W) which have the TRUE or FALSE values.

I know it has something to do with either HLOOKUP, INDEX and MATCH but can't seem to get it right. Any ideas?

## Lookup On Column And Row Header

Feb 9, 2010

I need a formula to lookup and retrieve data from a table of values. Given an EMP-ID in column A of the row that contains the formula and given a column name in row 1 of the column that contains the formula, I need to do a lookup. So, in effect, I am doing a lookup based on two values .. the column header and the row header.

I have attached a small model to illustrate what I need. Cell C-3 in the first worksheet will contain the formula to lookup and retrieve the value in cell C-7 in the second worksheet, based on the values in cell C-1 (column header = “Database Col 2”) and in cell A-3 (row header = “257”) in the first worksheet.

Nov 18, 2008

I have a list of names and the chores they need to do on a certain day. I need a formula that returns the chore the person needs to do when the date is filled in.

Ex: Sheet2 Col:A has names filled in A2:11 , row B1:J1 has dates that you would input.
formula goes in B2:J11
Sheet1 is the master with all the data the formula would be pulling from.
column A2:A11 has the names , row B1:S1 has the chore that needs to be done.
B2:S11 has the dates already filled in.

The formula should match the name in A2, John, with value from the table in sheet 2 and return the correct region, this case North.

## Column References: Get A Cell To Return A Value Depending On Whether Or Not A Cloumn Is Populated

get a cell to return a value depending on whether or not a cloumn is populated
for example. If i Have 3 columns EUR, GBP and CHF and there can (99% of the time) only be one entry in any of the 3 on any given row. How then can i get a 4th column to return the value EUR, GBP or CHF on the same row as an entry.

## Populating A Cell With A Column Header

May 13, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with a number of columns from a database export, where values in the column are either "TRUE" or "FALSE," Depending on whether or not the box was checked in the database. I am wondering if there is a way to populate a new cell with the text from the column if the value is "TRUE."

For example:

BOY
GIRL
John Doe
TRUE
FALSE

Is there a way that I could have another cell populated (I guess via function or macro) with "BOY," since the option for boy is true?

## Return ALL Non-zero Cell VALUE And Corresponding Column Header For All IDs

Oct 31, 2013

I have a table like the following where each ID can have no, 1 or multiple values associated with it:

Table1
ID>>>A>>>B>>>C>>>D
1>>>> >>> >>>10>>>

3>>>5>>> >>> >>>>2
4>>> >>> >>> >>>>

I have another table that only lists IDs
Table2
ID
1
2
3
5

I want a VBA code such that if ID is in Table2, VBA looks for the matching ID in Table1 and if the matching ID found, it looks for ALL non-empty cells and if a non-empty cell is found in the row, it returns the value in the cell and the header to give something like this

Table3
ID>Column1>Value1>Column2>Value2
1>>>>c>>>10>>
2>>>>D>>>50>>
3>>>>A>>>5>>>>>>D>>>>>>>2>>>

## Change Cell Depending On Column Header

Jul 11, 2007

I have a spreadsheet with names and start / finish dates columns down the left hand side then a row of week commencing dates along the top.

for each name row I would like to change teh fill colour of a cell to green to represent the week in which they started and to red for the week in which they finished. I therefore need to cross reference the start and finish dates for each name with the relevant week commencing dates at the top. Somehow! I presume there is some kind of vlookup type formula that I need to use in conditional formatting, but I am not sure what.

Nov 18, 2011

I've been trying find an appropriate formula to extract the column header from a table in a different sheet if the row header and value in that table is known.

In a different table I have product codes in column A and in column B i have the max number/quantity of products for that code. In column C i want to put the company name associated with the product and the number/quantity.

## Excel 2010 :: Sort Growing Column Starting Under Header Row At Cell C5

May 7, 2014

find macros to sort fixed ranges but not an entire column with existing header rows from 1 to 4.
