# Lookup Value In Header Row And Return

Oct 1, 2009

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 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.

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 the lookup table the row titles (column A) are product codes, column titles (row 2, D through AX) are business names and the table values are quantity.

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.

## 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.

## Dynamic Lookup Based On Column Header

Jun 21, 2013

I'm trying to calculate a figure in a report tab that reads off the data tab and looks for a specific column based on the header of that column. My explanation is admittedly poor but I've attached a sample file with an outline of what I'm trying to do which I hope makes things clearer.

## 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?

## VBA - Lookup For Value In A Range And Returns Its Column Header

Jan 16, 2014

I have a table (A1:C5)

A2:C5 contain the data
A6 contains the value I want to search for I use this formula to return the column header of A6 A6=INDEX(A1:C1,SUMPRODUCT((A2:C5=A6)*COLUMN(A2:C5))) Now, if there are duplicate values in A2:C5, this will return more than one column header What I need is a vba code to view a msgbox with all column headers returned in this case

## If / Or Statement To Return Header

Feb 15, 2012

I am working with data that has numeric values in columns S, T and U. In column M I want to return the header of the column that has the largest value (S,T or U).

Here is the formula I am trying to use:

=IF(OR(S2>T2,S2>U2),\$S\$1,IF(OR(T2>S2,T2>U2),\$T\$1,IF(OR(U2>S2,U2>T2),\$U\$1)))

The problem is that it only sometimes works properly. I have found instances where the value in column T is greater than S and yet column S's header is still returned. What am I doing wrong?

## Lookup Column Header Value Based On Matching Table Value

May 16, 2013

I'd like a formula that'll return the column header by matching a lookup value with a table in the second sheet.

eg: sheet 1

Name
Cell
Region

John
111-2222

[Code] .......

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.

## Formula To Return Column Header?

I am looking at formula to return the column header, see example attached.

## Return Header Value For Furthest To Right Comparison?

Dec 12, 2013

I have a table with the follow values (simplified version): A1:E1 have text headers B1:E1 have formulas to pull in text values. Some are blank. Some have repeat values. F1 has the value I want to look up. I need F2 to look at A2:E2 and compare to F1. It needs to pull in the corresponding A1:E1 value for the furthest to the right A2:E2 value.

Example:
Column A B C D E F
Row 1 Jan Feb Mar Apr May Imp1
Row 2 [blank] Imp1 Imp2 [blank] Imp1

F2 should return "May" as a value.

## Right Most Cell With A Value And Return Column Header?

Dec 11, 2012

My file is set up like this:

Deal Jan Feb Mar....... Dec
A 0 11 0
B 0 0 23
C 13 0 12
and so on

Meaning deal A got cash of 11 in Feb and B of 23 in March

For a certain month (which could change), I want to specify the most recent month of a payment and return the month

So in April, row A returns 2, Row B March and Row C March

## Return Value From Column Based On Header Value?

Jul 16, 2013

Cells A3:A500 contain product numbers, e.g. 1001, 1002, 1003 etc.. etc...
Cells G2:N2 are column headers, e.g. North2011, South2011, North2012, South2012 etc... etc...
Cell F2 is a lookup that will return a year, e.g. 2011, 2012, 2013 etc... etc...

Against each product is a "yes" if it was sold in the north or south region for each year. This could be both north and south, one or the other or none at all.

What I would like is a formula in cells E3:E500 that looks at the year in cell F2 and if there is a "yes" in either the North or South for that year to return "yes" otherwise blank.

I am unable to upload a sample document due to firewalls.

## Return Column Header From If Statement

Jan 6, 2012

I'm working on a spreadsheet where I need to return the column header where the value in that row matches the criteria from an if statement.

The column headers are departments, the row headers are customers numbers, the values show the % of items sold in that department as a % of the total purchases by that customer.

I need to make a formula for each row so that if the % in any of the current row's values is 75%-100% then get the column header for the column that value is in.

I know it's an IF statement, but I don't know how to return the column header for the value when the if statement 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

## Search A List - Return Header / Value

Apr 5, 2004

I am trying to search a range for all of the nonblank cells, when I find one, return the column header and the value in that column. Vlookup won't work on this. It will only return a specified column.

Employee performance

ID area one | two | three

12947 23 | | 19
12948 32 | | 20
12948 |17 | 52

What I am trying to do is create a communication sheet. Employee ID 12947, your performance in area one= ______, in area two = ______ and so on.

## Look Up In Sheet2 And Return The Header Of Which Ever Column It Is Under

Dec 18, 2009

I have on sheet1 a name "brent alpha" which I need to look up in sheet2 and return the header of which ever column it is under,

Sheet 2 consists of 3 columns with a list of data under each one. As I said all I want to do is return the header.

## Find Last Entry In Row And Return Column Header?

Aug 1, 2014

I've got a spreadsheet with various amounts in cells A3:L5. I want to find the last non-blank entry in each row but only where the entry is in a column headed "Guaranteed PRB" (found in row 1). Then I want it to return the column header title found in row 2, which is a date.

I've attached a sample of the spreadsheet with the expected answer in column M.

I've got as far as formula:

=LOOKUP(2,1/(a3:l3<>""),\$a\$2:\$l\$2)

how to also make it look at row 1's headers too.

## Compare A String Of Values And Return The Header

Dec 19, 2013

Basically I have a string of dates, I want to get the max of the values that are before a specific date and return the header. Look at the file I provide for better understanding.

## Return Column Header Name For First Entry On Each Row Greater Than Zero

Feb 12, 2014

I'm currently using the formula

=IFERROR(INDEX(startmonthsp,MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(ISNUMBER(E2:AR2),0),0)),"").

The startmonthsp name refers to the months across the top of my pivot table. This formula works but I now need one small change. If the value in the columns are zero or less then I do not want the formula to return that column header (bypass it until it gets a positive value above zero).

Attached is a workbook that shows my formula in action.

## Return Column Header Of Last Positive Value In Range

Oct 21, 2009

I've got numerical data in columns A through AF, starting in row 4. I need a formula, starting in AG4 that I can drag down. I need the formula to look back across the row until it gets to the last posistive number, then return the column header of that column (the column headers are in row 3)

so for example

Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug

Data

0 3 0 0 8 0 0 0

the formula would return May in this example as 8 is the las positive value and the column header for that column is 8. There are no blank cells in the data.

## Find Value In Table & Return Column / Row Header

Nov 23, 2009

I am having trouble with getting a value (which is the row and column value) from a set of numbers. I have attached an example table to try and make things clearer.
What I have is a table with a set of Row Headers, and Columns Headers all numeric. e.g Columns headed 1, 2, 3, 4, Rows 30, 40, 50 etc. I want to find the 1st occurrence of a value e.g. 1.0 in the table (by 1st Up mean closest to top left), and then give me the value of the Row and Column Header that corresponds to that.

So for the example attached, I want to get the row Value 200 and Column 6 from finding the 1st occurrence of the number 1. I have tried various combinations of index and Match etc. But I can't get my head around the fact that the position of the 1st no. 1.0 can change, therefore I can't use any releative positions etc.

## Find First Non Blank Cell In Row Then Return Column Header?

Jan 17, 2014

I have this table, which can be seen as a basic custom gantt chart: KLRWo.png

And I would like to fill the A column with start dates, based on the first filled cell of the range on the same row, and the header value of its respective column (row 1). It's easier to show my expected result than write it actually:

## ID First And Last Non Blank Values In Row And Return That Cells Column Header?

Mar 13, 2014

I have a data set with the weeks of the year as my column headers and a value of 1 (from a pivot table) in a distinct row value (removed for privacy) showing whether it existed in a given week based on pre defined criteria. What i need to do is ID the first (from the left) non blank cell in each row and then return that cells column header. I then need to do the same for the last (from the left) non blank cell in each row and then return that cells column header. On the attached I've put values in column N and O to show an example of what I need to return using a formula.

## Scan Row For Text - Return Row And Column Header Info

Jun 2, 2013

I've been using a nice colorful spreadsheet to use to schedule rooms for an organization. Visually it has worked out well but now I need to automatically generate a 'report' using that data. So...

I want to scan each row of a table and create another table with that data transformed.
That is, scan each row and whenever I find any text in a cell I want to return that text (the room being used) as well as the row and column header information (who is starting to use that room and on what date). I've attached a jpeg to show the example.

Ideally, when I scan the row and find text to return the headers I'd like the row scan to also find when the fill color changes and return that column header, too as that that would be the date that the room stops being used.
