# Lookup To Return Value And Format

Aug 3, 2007
My workbook contains two worksheets a scorecard template and a data sheet. I use the lookup function to retrieve statistics from the data to populate various fields in the scorecard template. The value can be numeric, currency or percentages depending on the lookup criteria. Although the data shows the correct formats in the data sheet, when the lookup retrieves the value it only shows the value as number format. Is there a way the cell can retrieve the cell format information as well as the value and apply it to the cell

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)

LOOKUPDIVDPTCC SALES 46120

010775010775 49,028,244.58

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.

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.

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

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

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))

I'm trying to set up a conditional format using a two way lookup. The chart is 15 colums across and perhaps 500 down. Index / Match functions do find the correct value - BUT - the challenge is there ARE duplicate values in either the column or row that are "all" getting highlighted with the conditional format (color a cell).

I am trying to read down a column of unknown rows stopping when it reaches a colored cell, calculate the results and return it to the colored cell "before" the read cells.

Is this possible?

For example:

A3 is a colored cell that I need to return results of say A4:A6

A4:A6 have the data

A5 is a colored cell that has results from say A6:A12

A6:A12 have the data

etc...

Now the data to calculate is from a Data Validation list that ignores Blanks

accepted values: Blank, Yes, No and Maybe

If ANY No, colored cell = No

If ANY Maybe, colored cell = Maybe

If ANY Blanks, leave colored cell blank

If ALL Yes, colored cell = Yes

"No" wins over any value

"Maybe" wins over Yes and blank

"Blank" wins over Yes

It may be possible to simplify by breaking the "results" cell into another column but the above mentioned is their preferred way to handle and "automate" it. Also might be easier to put the results cell at the end of the read cells?

I have rows with text and numbers. In order to ensure that the numbers are accurate, I have a "QC formula" that calculates a check using all of the numbers from 1 row. The challenge is that the "QC formula" needs to vary depending on a text value within the row.

How can I lookup up the text value and then return the correct active formula for that row? I have too many differet text values to do a nested If statement. see simplified example below.

Condition ABCFormula' Needed based on Condition

Red123A*B*C

Blue123A+B+C

Green123(A+B)*C

Hi there, please can you help me transfer data from 1 spreadsheet to another (I have attached a file which has 2 sheets).

I am trying to populate columns G to L (sheet B) with data from column H (sheet A) - the lookup is between 'Material' & '7410','7090','7680','7060','8630','7580' on sheet B & material & plant on sheet A.

I have tried H&VLOOKUP & INDEX/MATCH but I keep returning a #N/A..

I have a worksheet with the following values:

header row 15 17 19 25 etc.

each column underneath the row will have a value of 0 or -1

A B C D E etc

1 15 17 19 25

2 0 -1 -1 0

3 -1 0 0 0

4 0 0 0 0

etc

I want a formula that I would put in each row that would return the value of Row 1 if there is a -1 below that value. So, in this example:

Row 2 formula would return 17,19

Row 3 formula would return 15

Row 4 formula would return nothing

I am trying to automate the account classification of credit card (cc) expenses. The problem is charges to USAirways will always have random numbers after the vendor name on the cc download. I set USAIRWAYS as a Travel Expense and a simple Vlookup will not work.

For example, let's say a data dump in column C of the CC:

cell C2 is USAIRWAYS 037232A49429

CeLL C3:

USAIRWAYS 037282hf39647

Cell C4:

Facebook A8476H4

In column E I have my simple vendor name. Column F as the Vendor Account. For example E1 is USAIRWAYS. F1 is Travel Expense. E2 is FaceBook. F2 is Marketing Expense

In cell D2 & D3 I want to return Travel Expense anytime the formula sees USAirways in cell C2 returning the answer in column F after matching w/ column E. In cell D4 I want to return Marketing Expense.

I have a list of names in sheet1 column A and 3 more list of names on sheet2, sheet3 and sheet3. What I'm trying to do is find a match for each name on sheet1 column A on the other sheets and depending on which sheet it was found, I need a specific value returned to sheet1 column B.

For example, if A1 was found on sheet2, then on B1 I would need to return the value "Morning" but if it was found on sheet3, then I need the value "Afternoon" and if found on sheet3 I need the value "evening" returned to B1 and then the same for every other name on the list found on sheet1 column A.

What I tried was this.

This goes in Sheet1 B1 (then I would drag it down to search for the rest)

=IF(AND(MATCH(A1,'sheet2'!$E:$E,0)),"Morning",IF(AND(MATCH(A1,'sheet3'!$E:$E,0)),

"Afternoon", IF(AND(MATCH(A1,'sheet4'!$E:$E,0)),"Evening","Un-assigned"))

Now the problem with this is that it only works if there is a match on sheet2 but if there is no match, it just returns "N/A" and it does not move on to sheet3 and/or sheet4.

I also tried with vLOOKUP instead of MATCH and the same thing happens.

I also tried this and the only thing I get is "Un-Assigned"

=IF(AND(A1='sheet2'!E:E),"Morning",IF(AND(A1='sheet3'!E:E),"Afternoon",IF(AND(A1='sheet4'!E:E),"Evening","Un-Assigned")))

I have four columns, Play Date, 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

I have a total of 364 rows of data for this table.

My output table looks like the following:

{mod note - HTML not working and removed}

What I want the output from a formula(???) to do is put every 'Play Date' for each 1st, 2nd, & 3rd column for every number from 0 to 9. So under Column A for zero and 1st I want every date that is listed in the source table in column 1st to list out. All I can get is the first instance of a date and nothing else.esn't use that would be great.

FYI the formula that I used to get the one entry in column A row 4 was this:

=INDEX($AK$4:$AK$367,MATCH($A$2,$AL$4:$AL$367,0))

I have a large set of numerical data, with each column having a text heading in the first row.

I want to use a function similar to HLOOKUP that can return the numerical value in a certain row of a column that has a specified heading....AND if there is more than one numerical value that meets the criteria, I want it to return the lowest numerical value.

My numerical data cannot be sorted into ascending order.

I have two columns of data, one containing Groups, another containing Items. Like this:

Group | Item

A | Apple

A | Orange

B | Pear

B | Banana

C | Tire

D | Coffee

etc.

On another sheet, I have each of the groups listed as column headings. I want to resort the data and display it in columns instead of in a single list.

I can write a VLOOKUP to search for "B" for example, and return "Pear", but I want to return all matches for "B" not just the first one.

I have a list of values in column A (part numbers)

In columns B to E I have lists of similar values (part numbers, with row 1 representing their location e.g warehouse, office, etc).

In column F2 I would like to search for the value in A2 in the range B2:E100 and return the value in B1:E1 if the value appears... if it doesnt appear in any of the columns I would like 'not located' to appear in F2.

I've been trying to do this for a while but am making no progress at all.

I have a spreadsheet similiar to the below:

COLUMN A.....COLUMN B

Person 1.......Process 1

Person 1.......Process 1

Person 1.......Process 2

Person 1.......Process 1

Person 1.......Process 2

Person 1.......Process 3

Person 2.......Process 1

Person 2.......Process 4

Person 2.......Process 1

and so on.

In the list, the "People" aren't neccessarily in order, for example, later in the list, Person 1 appears again. There are a total of 10 processes, and any person can do any number of each.

What I ideally want is in Columns D, E, and F, is something like the following:

COLUMN D.....COLUMN E....COLUMN F

Person 1...........3.............Process 1

Person 1...........2.............Process 2

Person 1...........1.............Process 3

Person 2...........2.............Process 1

so a summary of the main data, showing how many each process each person has got.

I have, and failed miserably, getting arrays to work but that might just be down to my own incompetence. I have researched into Countif's and Lookups, but it's not quite working.

The data in columns D, E, and F needs to be fairly compact so ideally I wouldnt want any spare rows between the end of the summary data about Person 1 and the start of Person's 2 details.

I have exported an income statement report from the ERP system to Excel. Only items that are not equal to zero are populated. So if there has been no expense in the Central division for Consulting fees, it does not show up on the report. Here is the formula:use control shift and enter

small(if(row(A1:A100)-ROW(A1)+1>MATCH("Central Division",A1:A100,0),if(A1:A100)="Consulting Fees",ROW(A1:A100)-ROW(A1)+1)),1)(

Excel Jeanie HTMLSheet2

A 2 East Division 3 Sales 4 Cost of Sales 5 Payroll 6 Lights 7 Consulting Fees 8 Net Profit 9 10 Central Division 11 Sales 12 Cost of Sales 13 Payroll 14 Lights 15 Net Profit 16 17 West Division 18 Sales 19 Cost of Sales 20 Payroll 21 Lights 22 Consulting Fees 23 Net Profit

Excel tables to the web >> Excel Jeanie HTML 4

So this formula picks up the first Consulting Fees after the Central Division. The problem is it is going to pick it up under the West Division. So, how would I modify the formula so that if the row number is also less than Central Division Net Profit (A15), it is zero. (no offset or indirect)

In column "AT" I have a list of matchups between 2 soccer teams that looks like this

Row 1:Manchester UnitedArsenal

Row 2:Chelsea FCLiverpool

Row 3:TottenhamAston Villa

Row 4:Hull CityLiverpool

Row 5:Everton FCSunderland

Row 6:Bolton WanderersManchester United

Row 7:PortsmouthTottenham

Row 8:Birmingham CityStoke City

Row 9:WiganBlackburn Rovers

Row 10:LiverpoolFulham

In columns "AM" and "AN" I have a rating for the home and away team. So for example, AM row 3 would show the rating of Tottenham and AN row 3 would show the rating of Aston Villa.

Now what I want to do is set things up so that I don't have to enter every teams' rating in manually. I need a formula that would look from bottom to top (row 10 to 1), find the first row that contains Tottenham (for example), and then look to the right to either column AM or AN (depanding on if Tottenham is the first team in the matchup or second) and return the value in that cell.

On " sheet 1" I have a cell A1 with a number 12550 in it. On the following 6adjacent cells from B1 to G1 there are specific values assigned to them.

(Eg. $20, $30, $40, pork, 145, and spicy). There are currently 4 worksheets in the workbook and some of the worksheets contains the value "12550" in CellA1 of Sheet 1 while others don't.

I wish to search in a similiar column, from A1 to A50, throughout sheet 2, 3 and 4, for the value of "12550". Once the value is found in a sheet, the corresponding values to the 6 adjacent cells (from B1-G1 in Sheet1), are copied and pasted next to the "12550"cell. If there are no "12550" cells found in a sheet, the macro should continue as normal.

I have a large array of cells that go from A1 to A2500. In VB, I need to take a given date that resides in a cell, say 1/6/2006 in C2, and look for a match of it within this large array. When the match is found, I need it to look in the column to the right (IE, from A5 to B5) and assign the value there to a Cell (C1).

Could someone provide an example of the code I was use in VB for this? I'm having a lot of trouble with it.

I need to lookup for the largest number in B2:D2 (in this case 2.22) and return the corresponding header ("C"). I though it would be simple with hlookup() and max() but i can't make it work.

to give the If a Range.

I thought it would simply be:

But all I get is Blank Cell.

B24 has a Value but it does not appear in F15,F16 and F17 respectively.

I created a drop down menu from a named data range on a seperate spreadsheet in the same workbook. Based on the selection from that drop down menu I want a preassigned number to pull into another cell. I'm not thinking of the correct formula or something, because it's not working. Could it be because it's text? My spreadsheet with the data is as follows:

Bridger to American Fork 051725

Hunter to American Fork 051725

Hunter to Delta 051715

Hunter to Hiawatha 051728

Navajo to Am. Fork w/ front 051725

Navajo to Am. Fork w/o front 051725

The 1st column is the origination/destination and I named that range "freight hauls". Which is what the dropdown menu on another sheet (AP Reconcilliation) consists of. From that, I want the 2nd column number to pull into another cell on the AP Recon sheet. The formula I wrote that isn't working is: =index('AP Reconciliation'!A2:B8,match(A6,'Freight Hauls List'!B2:B7,0),2)
