Lookup Up/Match: Return A Value In Column A If My Data Matches Column B?

Jun 5, 2009

I have a tab that has 2 columns of data and I want to be able to return a value in column A if my data matches column B. If column B has the text TRUETRUE, I want to bring back the corresponding data in Column A. How do I return all the data in Column A for all the TRUETRUEs in column B? I can only get the first instance of TRUETRUE.

Lookup/Match: Compare A1 For The Values In Column B, Then Return The Corresponding Cell (column C) In Column D

Jan 31, 2008

I've been searching the forums for this problem but I can't seem to find any answers. Anyway, this is the problem. See screenshot.

I want to compare A1 for the values in column B, then return the corresponding cell (column C) in column D.
e.g. D1 = 2, D2 = 1, D3 = 4, D4 = 5 and D5 = 3.

Index Match Lookup, Variable Return Column

Sep 3, 2009

I would imagine that the title of this thread made little sense, so let me try to explain:

Sheet A has columns A-C populated with data. Column D needs to search Sheet B columns A-C for a match. (ie, see if the data on sheet A is also on sheet B) if this is true, then it needs to return the value of the LAST column of the matched row in Sheet B.

So, if Sheet A R1 A-C is 1,2,3. Sheet A R1 D needs to search Sheet B for 1,2,3. and when it finds it, (for example on row 9) return the value of the last column of Sheet B row 9. The issue is, the last value could be in column R or S or AA, there is just no way of knowing.

Lookup Column Values In Another & Return Value If Match Found

May 28, 2008

I need to create a macro that will loop through a list of names on Sheet 1 / Column A, and if that name is listed on Sheet 2 / Column A, then it will set Sheet 1 Column B (for that one name) to "1".

The problem I've run in to is that both the lists change in length each time I have to run this (so no set range).

I've been able to get this to work with two ( nested) loops, where the first loop goes through the Sheet 1 list and the nested Loop looks for the name on Sheet2, but it is extremely slow.

Is there any simple VBA code or formula that I'm missing that could do this? I've tried to do something with the " Find" VBA command, but I can't see how it would apply to this if the list changes in size.

Lookup Match And Return Comment Based On What Is In Relevant Column

Jan 15, 2014

The logic of the formula like this....

TAB X, Column A contains a data set, each row is a unique value. In column B of TAB X, I want to input a formula that performs the following logic: Search TAB Z, Column C, for an exact match of data contained in TAB X, Column A....and if found, look in TAB Z, Column D...if a blank cell is contained there, then in TAB X, Column A, say "Unsettled" ; however, if there does exist any character (not-blank) in TAB Z Column D, then in TAB X, COlumn A, say "Settled".....but, if the data ID listed in TAB X, column A is not found whatsoever in TAB Z, Column C, then say "NOT FOUND". So for example, within TAB X, Column A there is a unique ID in one of the rows "ABC123", then searches "ABC123" in TAB Z, Column C. If found, it looks in TAB Z, Column D and that cell is blank, so TAB X, Column B, same row that contains ABC123, the result is "Unsettled".

Lookup/Match Column Values On Another Worksheet & Return Adjacent Cells

Jul 1, 2008

I have two excel sheets. The first sheet has a column with codes and another column with dates. There are more than one date for the same code. The second sheet has just one unique code. I would like to match the code on the second sheet with the code on the first sheet and return ALL the dates associated with that code to the second sheet - horizontally.

Return Value From 2nd Column When Value In 1st Column Matches Given Criteria

I have a column containing text values eg M1, T2, M3, A4 etc. and I am trying to return the value (numeric) in a second column to a cell when the text value in the first column is matched.

Lookup & Return Data From Different Column

Apr 8, 2009

I have a book with multiple tabs in it. The first is a master customer file, including customer numbers. The next two tabs include multiple references to the same customers because they list multiple shipping addresses and contacts for each customer on a separate line. I want to be able to have the additional tabs refer to the master list and find the customer name, then return the corresponding customer # in the previous column for that customer. This is what I came up with: =IF(B:B=Sheet2!B:B,Sheet1!A:A,0). But the results simply returns numbers that increase by 1. It should repeat the same customer # for the number of times that customer name is listed based on how many addresses or contacts there are. What am I not doing right?

Match Data In Column Against Another & Return Value From Another

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.

Lookup Data Without Knowing Return Column

Aug 25, 2006

Got a bit of a stinker here. (Well, it is for me anyway. I haven't used Excel in months)!

I want to use a VLOOKUP function (I think) to retrieve data from a list of Exchange Rates on a separate sheet.

The user enters a 'Period' number, selects an 'exchange' variable (the blue text cells). The hope is to lookup the data on the 'FX RATES 06-07' sheet and return the result in the green cells.

I've tried using VLOOKUP but one of the arguements specifies that you nominate a column to return the information - that's the problem, we don't know that information when asking Excel.

Lookup Partial String To Return Data From Corresponding Column

Mar 22, 2007

I have a simple lists containing two columns. One column contains a five digit number and the other a vendor name. The vendor name in most cases is two to four words. I am wanting to type in a partial string of the vendor name and it return to me the 5 digit 'vendor' number.

Col A Col B
20567 3M Electrical, Inc.

I want to type in '3m' or '3M' or 'electrical' or 'ELECTRI' and it return the 20567. The other part of this is that there may be two rows with the same info in which I would need to see both...

Col A Col B
20567 3M Electrical, Inc.
21789 3M Tape Division

Is this possible with standard lookup features in Excel or does someone have a VbScript or macro that will accomplish this?

Lookup Formula That Matches First Three Digits Of Column

How To Count A Column If It Matches Data From Another Column In Seperate Rows

Feb 6, 2009

I have two columns with dates. Colum A has the date of the deadline of a document while column b has the day it was sent. Column X will display the difference if its a positive integer ( i.e. if the document has been sent after the deadline). Now i have another column Y which displays the month as an integer of when the document was actually received.

Now i need a counter which will count the number of instances a positive integer is registered in column X according to the month in column Y. I have been trying everything but cant figure a simple way to do it. Im doing this so i can be able to see how many documents are sent after the deadline per month.

Nested Index / Match Array - Return Value In Column C When Matching Column A And B But With Few More Criteria

Jun 7, 2014

I am trying to use a nested INDEX and MATCH array formula to return the value in column C when matching column A and column B, but with a few more criteria.

The range containing all the data

A
B
C

1
Cat 1
January 1, 2014
John

[Code] ..........

I am looking for the array formula to return the name of the person in column C who is in Cat 1 after the date in column B.

For example;
C7 should return "John" because B7 requests "January 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C8 should return "John" because B8 requests "February 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C9 should return "Andrew" because B9 requests "August 15, 2014", which is after the value in B4

The best try I had for the formula in C7 was

{(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$C\$4,MATCH(1,(\$B\$1:\$B\$4>=B7)*(A\$1:\$A\$4=A7),0),3))}

This brings back "John" as desired in C7, but when copying down the table into C8 and C9 both C8 and C9 return Andrew.

I guess this is due to my ">=" condition in the Match formula and it is returning "Andrew" because "Andrew" is also after the date requested, but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get it to work.

Compare Column In Different Workbooks & Return Corresponding Value Of Matches

Aug 7, 2008

I have two separate workbooks, each with a great deal of information, such as name, ssn, dates, statuses, etc. I would like to compare the SSN column for both workbooks, and when it finds a match (which there would be many) to copy the MOS cell from the same row to the other workbook. Here is my breakdown with names:

Workbook 1: Macros.xls
Workbook 2: MASS 162.xls
The SSN column is column C in both workbooks
When there is a match found between the SSN column in Macros.xls and the SSN column in MASS 162.xls, I need to copy the MOS cell (column E) from the MACROS.xls workbook to the MASS 162.xls workbook into the same row, but in column M, which is currently empty.

Want To Return Value From 2nd Column Based On Match In 1 Field With First Column

Sep 23, 2009

I'm working on a project in which I have 50 states + DC listed by 2-letter abbreviation, and want to return a value in another column that will be a non-unique number (some will duplicate in the second column.)

Also need to do this same operation with first column (state) and third column, which also is comprised of non-unique numbers.

Hlookup, lookup & pivot tables seem to not be a fit for this.

Match Text In Column Of Another Workbook & Return Nth Column Same Row

Mar 12, 2008

I have two excel files.
File #1 is a varying length and has 4 columns with ID #s in Column A.
File #2 is a two column file that contains a list of ID #s in column A AND modified ID#s in column B.

I need to match the ID #s in column A from file# 1 to the list in column A of file#2 then replace ALL instances of the matching ID #s in column A of file#1, with the values found in column B of file #2.

I've tried using the substitute function but I could only replace one found ID at a time.

Delete Rows If Column Has Fewer Than X Matches To Part String Match

May 5, 2008

I have data sets on multiple worksheets within a workbook (over 70). Based on the begining of a string, I need to count all instances with that begining, and if there are fewer than 12 instances, delete the entire row.

Data set example:

In this example, I need to count each instance of rows starting with 1/* - 9/*, and delete rows as mentioned. In other data sets the string might start Gi1/*, and so on. In the following code, if I do not loop, and only test against 1 value type, and ONLY run it once, it works. As soone as I try to loop through all possibilities, or run the macro a second time, it blanks out the entire worksheet, starting at row 3.

Dim c As Long
c = Worksheets(i).Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
With Range("A3:A" & c)
If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Worksheets(i).Columns(1), "1/*") < 12 Then
. AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="1/*"
.Offset(1).Resize(.Rows.Count - 1, 1).EntireRow.Delete
.AutoFilter

I have also tried to concatenate a variable with my CountIf criteria, but that fails miserably.

MACRO Lookup Columns Of Current Sheet And Matches It With Table In Tab Then Returns Hourly Pay In Column

Mar 5, 2014

I am having trouble with my macro. I have attached excel sheet for reference.

Basically, I want a Macro that Looks up columns B & C of current sheet and matches it with table in the charges tab, and then returns hourly pay in column D.

I have created the macro but it's giving me Run time 1004 error.

Also, my formula is incorrect. Maybe that's why my macro isn't working?

Lookup Value Then Return Value In Row 1 Of That Column

Nov 22, 2007

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.

Lookup Value & Return Same Row Different Column

Dec 21, 2006

I am looking for a formula, to change from this
IF Formula located in Cell F15
=IF(E15=A15,B24,"")

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.

Merge Two Workbooks. Copy Column Data Based On Numerical ID Match Of Another Column.

Mar 13, 2009

I am trying to get excel to search a workbook/(or worksheet if easier) for a matching unique value and fill in its associated data. My first workbook has the SKU (A) filled in but not the UPC (B). My second workbook has both the SKU (A) and the matching UPC (C) filled in.

I need to take both workbooks/(worksheets), compare the SKUs, and if a matching SKU is found, extract the UPC from Workbook 2 and fill in the UPC field in Workbook 1, and if no UPC is present in Workbook 2, then it leaves the cell in Workbook 1 blank.

Lookup Function Required To Return Multiple Matches

Apr 24, 2007

I have a list with 8 columns. In the majority of instances, Columns A & B will have duplicate information. I need to be able to search columns A & B & return the information from them PLUS all info contained on the same row's from columns C/D/E/F/G & H. EG:...

My column headings are as follows...

In column A (type) would be the type of contact eg:business/personal/family etc.

So... If looking for family I'd need excel to show me the region, contact, phone, email, add1, add2 & add3 for each family record. Hope this makes sense!
There are over 1000 records i need excel to search through & return matches.

I'm an intermediate excel user at best so finding it complicated. Tried vlookup but that stops when it finds a match & anything else seems over my head.

Return Column Name On Match

May 30, 2012

I am trying to return the column name to the user based on a cell value. I am using the formula =Match(C2,1:1,0). This returns a numeric value of the column based on the match. What I want to get back is "AL". Do I need to use some format calculation to achieve this?
