# Lookup Heading & Return Value X Rows Down

Oct 11, 2007

How do you count the number of columns in a range in order to reach ( find) a specific value in that row ?

## Lookup Value - Return Column Heading

Apr 14, 2010

I want to lookup the max value within a group of columns and return the column heading (specified a cell) that corresponds to the max value.

## Lookup Of Row (return Data From Specified Row) With Column Heading And Value

Feb 21, 2014

Encryption algorythim.xlsx

Here is my scenario I have all this data i want to search in. In the rows there are repeating values and in the columns they do not repeat.

As seen in the attached i am able to give a column and row by title and then get the intersecting cell data from that. (Encryption lookup)

What i want to do is give the column tittle and row value and get back the row title. (Decryption Lookup)

This shouldn't be too hard seeing that the data in the columns has no repeats.

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.

## Lookup Row In Column & Heading In Row

Dec 7, 2006

I'm trying to enter info in a cell based on what is entered in two other cells.

So I have a dropdown box for the species on another sheet as well as a dropdown box for rail sizes. Then I have to crossreference them to come up with an upcharge number. Sorry for my basic lingo. I hope it's understandable.

## Lookup Value In Row & Return Result X Rows Down

Aug 28, 2007

I am working on a spreadsheet for some packages we are sending to multiple recipients. I have figured out how to get all the weights calculated, now my Mailing Manager has asked me to come up with a calculation for the actual postage amount for all the 1400+ packages...Unfortunately it is not as easy as that would seem.

There are 9 different mailing zones and each zone has 19 weight categories and each category has a corresponding postage amount for the package. So I need to come up with a formula to calculate the package postage amount based on those multiple categories.

For example:
Zone 1:
0-1lb = \$2.12
1.1-1.5lb = \$2.12
1.6-2lb = \$2.21
etc

How do I go about entering in that information from which a formula can determine the proper package postage cost and what formula do I need to use in conjunction.

This is all done within a address list so each package is a row and all weights and zones will be in a separate column.

Package is in zone X and weighs Y pounds therefore the postage is Z. Something like that.

## Lookup And Return Names With Non-Consecutive Rows

Nov 6, 2013

Having an issue with an array formula.

{IFERROR(INDEX('sheet2'!\$A\$2:\$A\$14,SMALL(IF('sheet2'!\$C\$2:\$C\$14="X",
ROW('sheet2'!\$A\$2:\$A\$14)-ROW('sheet2'!\$A\$1)),C\$2),1),"")}.

Originally I did not need to skip any rows, but now I have to skip certain rows. I've tried using my current array formula and skipping the rows not needed but can't get it to work.

{IFERROR(INDEX('sheet2'!\$A\$2:\$A\$5,\$A\$9:\$A\$14:SMALL(IF('sheet2'!\$C\$2:\$C\$5,\$C\$9:\$C\$14="X",
ROW('sheet2'!\$A\$2:\$A\$5,\$A\$9:\$A\$14)-ROW('sheet2'!\$A\$1)),C\$2),1),"")}.

Can this still be done with an array formula? I need to skip rows 6, 7, 8. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but no names are appearing. Sheet 1 looks like this with "Job Titles" starting in A2 on sheet1.

Job Titles
Dept.
1
2
3
4

Claims
CSI

Outb Calls
CSI

CSI

Evaluator
CSI

I tried a new formula in cell C3

:=IFERROR(INDEX(Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$14,SMALL(IF(ROW(Sheet2!\$C\$2:\$C\$14)=9,
IF(Sheet2!\$C\$2:\$C\$14="x",ROW(Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$14)-ROW(Sheet2!\$A\$1)))),C\$2),1),"") entered as an array.

I should see the name "C. Pepper" followed by "L. Smith" when I copy the formula to the right into D3, "J. Rast" would be skipped as these are the rows not being picked up, but nothing is showing.

Sheet 2 looks like this with "Staff Name" starting in cell A1:

Staff Name
Mgr
Claims
Outb Calls
Evaluator

A. Hawkins

## Lookup Date Heading & Offset To Left

Apr 4, 2008

In the attached spreadsheet you will see the table of data in cells e6:L16. In cell N6 i am doing a hlookup to find the date in the table of data that is closest to the date in cell A4. The formula in cell M6 is where i am having the problem and i was trying to pull in data that is 4 columns to the left of where the hlookup date is in cell N6. The problem i am having is when i input any date higher than 06/30/07 the Index formula does not display the correct date. What is confusing me is that the Hlookup formula in cell N6 still works with higher dates but the index formula does not.

## Return Row Heading With Max Value In Table

Mar 23, 2014

I uploaded a simplified version of the workbook I'm manipulating for reference. I'm looking for a formula where I can get the ROW heading of a table to be returned based on the max value of a certain column. My column headings in the table are months. I have separate place in the workbook where I have the Months listed in a Column (A9:A......) and in Cells (B9:B....) I want to return the row heading name from the table. The tricky part is that the column headings don't always stay in same place, so Jan isn't always in A1, sometimes it is in B1 or C1 of the table.

Essentially from my months listed is separate part of the workbook. In the cell next to each month I want to match that month with column in the table. In that column find the max value and return the row heading.

## Find Value In Row, Then Return Heading Above It

Jan 12, 2010

I have a 10x10 table. First row contains column titles (plain text, hardcoded). Each line below them has a 1 in *just one* cell. So, each line contains 9 zeros and one 1.

In the 11th column I want to check which column has the 1 in it and return the column's title. So, if the 5th row has a 1 in cell E5 I should get, in K5, the value of E1 (the title of the E column that is).

## Return Heading At Point Total Is Met

Sep 2, 2007

I have a spreasheet with partnumbers listed in column A, a safety stock value in colum B, a restock date in column c, and quantities listed by month needed in the following columns, i.e.:

A B C D E F G
Part # Safety Stock Restock Jan Feb Mar Apr
123abc 50 Feb 20 35 20 10

In the example above, it is apparent that the safety stock will be delpeted in Feb.

I am trying figure out how to calculate the month that the safety stock will be depleted
and show this in another cell.

## Return Heading Of Column With Maximum Value

Sep 16, 2007

In attached example, I have 3 columns of fractions with a final row of sumtotals (taken from elsewhere). I test to see which column has the maximum value in each row and allocate the result with the column's heading. Sometimes, two or more columns have the same max value. In this scenario, I wish to select the column heading that has the largest sumtotal.

## Return Heading For Maximum Value Of Each Row & Color Max Row Value

Mar 8, 2008

I have inventory in 9 cities. Cities names are in B2-J2. Line items are rows 3-100
In column K, I have the max formula for that row. What I need is, in column L, the name of the location city from row 2 where the max qty is located also color the max qty in the row.

## Return Column Number Of Heading

Jun 9, 2008

I have range like (3E:3K) in this range are only 2 different expressions. "Result and " forecast". I wanna look from left to right for the first cell with the string "forecast".
And than I want to work with the column of this cell, only this column.

How do i do that?

Edited
I corrected the coordinates. I want to look in a specific column line (Nr.3) from there the first Cell with "Forecast" and from that String the row number.

They following 4 posts were based on wrong informations by me.

## SUM Until Specific Cell Is Reached And Heading Return?

Nov 18, 2013

I have a number of dates (columns) and under each date there is the demand value (Rows). Also, i have a column that has the current inventory. what im trying to do is to keep on adding the demand in one row (i.e multiple dates) until the sum just exceeds the inventory. After that, i would like to return sum the date at which we stopped adding. the point of this excercise is to see at which month will our inventory deplete according to the demand. Below is an example solved by hand.

Demand
Part #
month 1
month 2

## Search Table & Return Heading Of Found Value

Sep 8, 2007

In a large spreadsheet that receives external data, I have codes (U, N or V) allocated at various times to different rows as shown in sample worksheet attached. Elsewhere in the spreadsheet, I need to display (for later export) these codes along with their respective number in a sorted list. Please review the attached:

In the spreadsheet you'll see a column of codes, the next column is the data reference number, then to the right is three columns, one for each code. As displayed in the sample book attached, each Code column is to display the data reference number (from column 2)that matches that column's code.

What formula can I use to list these numbers in the appropriate columns?

## Return Heading Ascociated With Date Found In Table

Mar 1, 2008

Attached is a very small sample of a workbook that looks at community impact; before, during and after a project.

The source data (not shown) is down loaded from a system that can only supply the date in reverse order (see column A).
i.e. 20080229 = 29-Feb-2008. I've applied a conversion in column "C"....

= DATE(LEFT(\$A2,4),MID(\$A2,5,2),RIGHT(\$A2,2))

The 'properly' formatted date is then used to determine when on the scale of observation that given date falls.
e.g. the number of weeks before, during and after the project.

This is determined by the 18 week date 'matrix/ array' in columns F to X the red box is used to input the project start date, (& assumes the project runs to its normal 6 week time scale, it get REALLY messy if the boss prolongs or cuts short the project!)

From the result various figures and a graph using the properly formatted date are calculated, produced and presented showing....

The scale of the problem {before}
The impact of the project {during}
The lasting efftectivness {after}

You can see that I've managed a 'workaround' for the limit on the number of IF statements allowed in one formula using a rolling formula in columns; B then Z - AQ. This works OK, but!! combine that with the other formulae doing the impact calculations and 20000+ rows of data (with the acssociated workings in B + Z-AQ) the effect is to make make the file over 15Mb for 1!! worksheet, (the limit for emailing on the jobs system is 3Mb!!) & just to really make it scary sometime there are 2 projects on the go at once.

Before I created the attached the user responsible for these graphs and calculations manually counted dates & typed/copied & pasted the week number/tile, initially several days work followed by half a day every weekly update!

## Return Row Heading By Column Header And Specific Texted Cell Row Position

Jul 11, 2014

I have a data set, in which Sheet 1 have a matrix of high level showing Engineer, Program and commodity relationship.

I have to create separate sheet for each program on sheet 1, each program sheet should have Engineer name and commodity name from sheet 1.

Multiple commodities and multiple engineers should be separated by definite structure.

find worksheet with input and output (manual) as expected.

## Combine Rows With Same Heading & Have Values Into 1

Mar 25, 2008

I am having 3 rows with same address and want to combine rows with equal names into single and delete remaing two rows

## Arrange Scattered Rows Value To Underneath Appropriate Columns Heading

Aug 20, 2014

I want to bring some scattered rows in data range directly underneath the appropriate columns

Here is the description of manual way of doing the same task.

1. first, I check for last empty rows in column "M" i.e for country(By pressing CTRL + Down arrow key in column "M") and then i look into the immediate next empty rows where is the date values, usually i found it into next rows but in a different columns. so i copy the range one cell before from date values till last columns in that same row and i bring it back to the original row where it should be indeed.

For example after pressing CTRL+down arrow key in columns "M", If i see date values In next immediate rows "E7". I copied from "C7" or "B7" (one cell before date value cell) ,depending on In which cell the date value is sitting till last columns i.e "N7" and paste it manually to "D6". and I do repeat the same work manually till i aligned all rows to their proper place.

I am attaching my file also.

## Lookup Multiple Values In Same Column With Same Column Heading

Feb 10, 2010

Is there a formula to isolate observations in the same column (different values) and also all have the same column heading like the file attached?

## Multiple Lookup Values Rows And Columns To Lookup Single Target Column On Right End?

Apr 7, 2014

I have a table of data (say Column1 to Column 5) with multiple rows.

Column 1 to 4 will have the lookup values in multiple rows and Column 5 data should be picked up using vlookup or other lookup function.

I managed to somehow bring all these lookup values in (Column 1 to 4) in a single column in another sheet. I am now trying to use some lookup or other functions to match this single column and pick column 5 data in original sheet. Result i am expecting is lookup value in first column and next to it column 5 value.

It is basically a lookup wherein lookup value is spread over multiple rows and columns and result column is fixed. I tried using vlookup, but lookup value column and column number had to change every time when i moved from column1 to 4.

## Transpose Rows Keeping Heading In Column A And Data In Column B

Mar 2, 2011

I have an excel spread sheet with several rows of 265 (9A-IV) columns each with a heading. I would like to transpose the worksheet columns so that the heading is placed in Column A against the corresponding that is placed in column B. For example

ABCD14692571038Transpose to A1A2A3B4B5C6C7C8D9D10

## V Lookup And Return Value

Oct 8, 2008

I have this vlookup formula and as you can see when I run it works good. The only problem is that I would like to have formula that it something is not found I don't get #N/A , but rather a 0 or blank.

=VLOOKUP(A6,GL!A\$1:E\$76,5,FALSE)

## IF Or LOOKUP To Return Different Value..

Jun 15, 2009

Column A lists types of employees (managers, engineers, sales reps, etc.), each of which earns a seperate hourly rate. Column C lists hours worked, and Column D lists the total pay (Cx*Bx).

So column B is missing. Is there a way to generate the hourly rates in column B for each employee type in collumn A, i.e. if it's an Engineer, return \$29, if it's a Technician, return \$18, without an infinite set of True/Fasle conditions.

## Return A Value If The Lookup Contains...

Sep 11, 2009

I have two files with the below data:

File A
Bob Jones
Williams, K.

File B
Jones, Bob
Williams, Ken

The only commonality between the two files is the last name. I can easily separate the last name off File B, since it is always 'last name, first name'. I want a lookup formula to use the last name from File B (after I separate it), lookup to File A, and if it finds a cell in a specified column that contains the same last name, return data from another column within File A.

## Lookup And Return Value

Oct 13, 2008

I am trying to look up a value using VBA on 1 sheet and return it to a cell on another sheet.... I was hoping Evaluate sum product would work but I can't get it to. Basically I want to look up values in column C and D to locate the row then return value in column I specify.. below eg where Column C = SYD and column D = SHA, row = 6 .... value in L row 6 = 1

## Lookup To Return No Value

Sep 20, 2006

My Lookup formula gives back N/A rather than an empty cell. I was unable to find the solution in frequently asked questions. Everything points to using VLookup which I feel doesn't fit my situation as I am only looking at one row of text.

The length of my targeted range changes so I am wanting to use the lookup for an extra amount of rows to ensure I capture all the data at any given time. Once my lookup gets to the end of the list and finds a blank cell i get back N/A. I tried to include "" in my formula to combat this but it isn't working. I have been using IF statements elsewhere on my sheet but there are 30 arguments and I was forced to find an alternative.

This is an abridge version of my formula:

=LOOKUP(Data!A2,{"","0129","0133","0163","0167","0187","0197","0202","0212"},{"","0201-0129","0205-0133","0201-0163","0213-0167","0201-0187","0216-0197","0212-0202","0217-0212"})

Didn't know if I was supposed to use [code] for that. Figured better safe than deleted

## Lookup X & Y And Return Z

Jun 17, 2008

I am trying to set-up a formula that will look up two different values of a grid (x & y) and the result will be the intersection of the two values (z). If there is not a value at the intersecting cell i will have it display "n/a". I have attached an example of what i am trying to do but i have no idea how to set up the formula. I forgot to mention that the index or chart above remains constant but the lookups do change. I believe i may have figured it out. Here is what i came up with for cell C19. Should i have done anything different? =INDEX(\$A\$2:\$E\$8,MATCH(A19,\$A\$2:\$A\$8,0),MATCH(B19,\$A\$2:\$E\$2,0))

## Lookup Value And Return Info About The Value

Dec 18, 2013

How to return the value of what i looking up. for example i want to find the value of A1 from a range of B1:B10 if A1 is B1 then it return the value beside B1 for example the value of B1 is C1
