# MATCH For Multiple Criteria While Ignoring Empty Array Cells

Nov 11, 2009
I'm working with a large amount of data (A21:BZ1503) and I'm trying to identify unique situations where any pre-defined combination of multiple columns in one row is flagged by producing a pre-defined value. For example:

I have my pre-defined criteria in worksheet 'X' hidden in my workbook -- note that there are many blank cells.

Worksheet 'X'ABCDE1Dept.CourseInst.Adj.2AGSM1.23MATH101Professor1.44ENGL1051.65ENGLProfessor1.86ETST1002

On worksheet 'A' the various users enter data -- each row is a unique group with data entered into the columns -- again note a cell can be blank:

Worksheet 'A'ABCDE1Dept.CourseInst.Adj.2AGSM110Professor3ETST2204ENGL108Professor5ENGL105Lecturer6MATH101Lecturer..............................

with a multiple criteria index match array!

I have attached an example where I need to bring back a result matching 4 specific criteria, but I cannot seem to get it to work at all!

I have attached an example dataset with the formula that I was trying to get right (and failing miserably!!)

I have sheet full of data containing results of multiple tests on various equipment.The sheet contains many columns of data but below are the specifc criteria i want to use to extract the data. As maintenance is carried out regularly the list is always growing. I want to create a dashboard summary of the "Machines" which i will colour using condition formatting. I will list the machines in the columns and would like the rows below each machine to be populated with the results.

Column 1 Lists the various factories

Column 2 Lists the Machine

Column 3 Lists the Part

Column 4 Lists the result.

Results can either be "ok", "warning", "Alert" only

I don't know if this is best in a formula or macro but what I am trying to do is create a list of data with no empty cells from a list of data with empty cells.

What I want to say is if A1 is blank move to A2, if it's not return the value in A1 to B1. If A1 and A2 are blank then return the value in A3 to B1 and so on. Generally it's a sort function but I want it to happen automatcially and lkeep all my values in the original order

Original Version:

Date 1/4 Value 1/4

23/02/199913.506

5/05/199911.901

14/05/199912.152

24/05/199911.607

7/06/199911.187

29/07/199911.828

2/09/199910.473

6/09/199910.429

Desired outcome:

Date 1/4 Value 1/4

23/02/199913.506

5/05/199911.901

14/05/199912.152

24/05/199911.607

7/06/199911.187

29/07/199911.828

How to do INDEX MATCH ARRAYS. (to populate my report I need to match multiple rows and columns from source sheet to import data).

Now I am trying to replicate same in VBA. (for this example row1&2 & column1&2 on both seed(source) and result(one I am trying to populate) sheets).

I wrote the code below that works just fine for 1 CELL.

Sub Button1_Click()

Range("C4").FormulaArray = "=INDEX('SEED'!$A$1:$f$6,MATCH(A4&B4,'SEED'!$A$1:$A$6&'SEED'!$B$1:$B$6,0),3)"

End Sub

I know in excel I can simply drag the formula across rows/columns to populate them automatically and the way I would do this in VBA would be by creating loops.

Here is what I have that needs improvement

Sub Button1_Click()

Dim iRow As Integer

For iRow = 3 To 4

Range("C" & iRow).FormulaArray = "=INDEX('SEED'!$A$1:$f$6,MATCH(AiRow & iRow,'SEED'!$A$1:$A$6&'SEED'!$B$1:$B$6,0),3)"

Next iRow

End Sub

Here iRow is to identify row number, and to keep simple I am only doing 2 rows. but how do i write MATCH statement to identify rows needed to be matched from SEED sheet?

I am having such a difficult time creating a macro that will reduce the 5+hours I have to spend each week manually copying & pasting all of this data. I making an IMMENSE difference in this worker bee's life!

I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 & Sheet2). Sheet1 has license #'s in column A and the state that the license belongs to in column B like this:

COLUMN ACOLUMN B11111Alaska11112Alabama11113Arkansas11114Arkansas

Sheet2 has three columns. Column A has the license #'s, column B has the state that the license belongs to and Columns C shows a line-of-authority tied to that license #.

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN

C11111AlaskaProperty11111AlaskaCasualty11112AlaskaLife11112AlaskaHealth11112

AlabamaProperty11112AlabamaCasualty11113ArkansasLife11113ArkansasHealth11114

ArkansasLife11114ArkansasHealth12345ArizonaProperty

I'm trying to write a macro that will compare the license # and state in Sheet1 to the license # and state in Sheet2. If it matches, append the contents of Column C to the corresponding row in Sheet1.

Here's the thing...Sheet2 contains the entries for all licenses in the company (so this table is HUGE). And there are multiple entries for each state license # (notice how there's two entries above for AK license # 11111 - one for the Property line and one for the Casualty line.

After my macro is run, I want Sheet1 to show all the lines-of-authority on a single line. So if I ran my macro on the above example, after it's run I would have this in Sheet1:

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN

C11111AlaskaProperty Casualty11112AlabamaProperty Casualty11113

ArkansasLife Health11114ArkansasLife Health

I am using this formula but I don't know how to get it to populate more than one cell.

Here is the formula:

=INDEX(APPROVED!$A$3:$A$1000,MATCH($F$4&$H$1,APPROVED!$D$3:$D$1000&APPROVED!$C$3:$C$1000,0))

It has multiple matches but I can only see the first match in the cell.

Using Excel 2010, I am trying to do a Sumproduct formula with two criteria, one of which needs to ignore text values.

Here is the set up:

Column AColumn BColumn C

(Side)(Qty)(Price)

Buy5,51215.67

Sell119,428null

Buy24,20945.77

Sell20,05412.25

...

I'm trying to find the sumproduct of Qty * Price if the side equals "Buy" (or "Sell") but ignoring the "null" value in column C. The formula I have is =SUMPRODUCT(--($A$2:$A$20="Buy")*IF(ISNUMBER($C$2:$C$20),--($B$2:$B$20*$C$2:$C$20)))

The result in the cell is 0, but if I open the Insert Function dialog box, I see the correct value being returned.

I have to correct a spreadsheet that takes a bunch of values and creates an average.

=average(N15;N29;N43;N57;N71;N85;N99;N113;N127;N141;N155;N169;N183;

N197;N211;N225;N241;N255;N269;N283;N301;N315;N329;N343;N357)*100%

I didn't create this. Anyway, the problem is that most of these cells will be empty unless a whole bunch of other stuff is filled. These N cells take several values, put them together and create a new one. As time goes by they are filled. While they aren't filled, they'll return the DIV/0 error.

So when that formula I pasted there uses all of these values, it also returns a DIV/0 error because it is getting info from cells that have this error.

I managed to correct that with this

=averageif(N15:N357;"<>#DIV/0!")*100%

It works like a charm save for one problem. When I use averageif I'm forced to use an interval. Along this interval other values show up (it is always a value ranging from 0 to 2). So when the formula works its magic the results are slightly skewed because of this other value that I don't want.

So I figure there must be two ways around this. The first one would be using something like averageif that lets me use several handpicked cells instead of an interval. If I try

=averageif(N15;N29;N43;N57;N71;N85;N99;N113;N127;N141;N155;N169;N183;

N197;N211;N225;N241;N255;N269;N283;N301;N315;N329;N343;N357;"<>#DIV/0!")*100%

It doesn't work, it says I have too many values. So if I could the exact same thing as I did with averageif but keeping all of these values it'd be super nice.

The other solution, less nice but equally effective I guess, is using this same interval but having more than one criteria. The first criteria would still be the one telling it to ignore DIV/0 error, the second criteria would be the one to ignore any values equal or lower than 2.

I am trying to run an array formula to match two dates on two seperate sheets as close together based on another cell. Below is what I currently have on some made up values. I am entering it as an array and ideally I would like it to run down the cells changing the reference A2 depending on which cell it is then to then enter this into a macro.

The formula I am currently using is:

=INDEX(Trees!B$2:B$75,MATCH(MIN(INDEX(ABS(IF(A2=Trees!A$2:A$75,(Trees!B$2:B$75-B2))),0)),INDEX(ABS(IF(A2=Trees!A$2:A$75,(Trees!B$2:B$75-B2))),0),0))

Sheet 1 (Named: Main)

Number

Date

Formula

1

15/06/2012

[Code] ....

Sheet 2 (Named: Trees)

Number

Date

I'm building a sales tracking list and I have empty rows between each entry to allow easier viewing of the data. When I add the empty row to act as a "visual space" between line entries, auto filter only sees the first line of text and not all 400 rows separated by empty rows.

Here is what I have. 4 Worksheets. The first worksheet is a summary page. I have 350 personnel that are broken down into three different groups. So each group has it's own sheet. Here is what I need to accomplish. Results need to be posted on the summary sheet.

I need to compare cells B2 & D3 for each row on a worksheet and display the number of times they match on a worksheet. For example how many times does EP & EP match on a certain row. I need to compare cells B2 & D3 for each row on a worksheeet and display the number of times they don't match on a worksheet. For example how many times does EP & MP occur.

I have a 14 column workbook with 40,000 lines (records)

Basically a mailing list of people and companies- no formulae.

There are MANY records where I only have a Person's NAME,the COMPANY name and STATE with the remaining columns empty. There may be more than one person (record) associated with the same Company.

There are quite a few records that have the no peoples names but COMPANY name, STATE AND address, City, Telephone, Sales, # Employees, and S.I.C. codes.

I would like to ask EXCEL to:

"Wherever there is a match of Column C (Company) and Column G (State) then

POPULATE EMPTY

Columns D (address), Column E (City), Column H (Zip), Column I (Phone), Column L (Sales), Column M (Employee #), and Column N (S.I.C. Code) from the info in the matching record that HAS the data.

My desired result is to have a list of peoples names with company , sales, phone # etc.

I have a range that is filled with formulae and the the number of rows in the range with data changes as the formulae reevaluate the inputs. So the rows with visible data changes between one row and 200 rows. By looking at the output in the first column of the range, Col M and finding the last row where the formulae returns data, I need a way of selecting across the columns of the range (M1 through to Qi) where i is the number of rows that have data in.

I'm tryig to find a way to index data in an array that meets certain matching criteria. I am looking for an employee's rate on a given day by searching a database that lists the dates that an employee's rate was changed. I was hoping to solve it with a crafty index and match array formula but have been unable to find something that works so far. I have attached a simplified example of what I am trying to do.

I would like to extract Bill cost from "rule" sheet and insert it to "data" sheet using index-match functions. My problem are multiple criteria and multiple matches.

The criteria are Column: Cost type, Power, Penalty Category (The logic goes like AND function).

And I want it to extract "Bills" value from "rule" sheet.

There are multiple matches in all columns (Cost type, Power, Penalty Category) which cause wrong extraction.

How do i solve this problem with index-match function?

I used a Fuzzy lookup to match the data that was shared between my two tables. I was able to run 3 different Fuzzy attempts to increase my accuracy because the source data had a lot of spelling errors and such.

Now I am at a point where I need to analyze the 3 possible Fuzzy matches. I am kinda stumped on the best route to do this and thought that an approximate match Hlookup would be the best route but I can't seem to get it to work.

Here is a pic of my table:[URL]

I am trying to match the cell outlined in red against the 3 cells outlined in green, when the best suited match is found I need to copy the green cell and the orange adjacent cells to it's left and right (ID# and Similarity). It would be best if the match threshold was in the low 90% range.

I am trying to understand how to use index and match in an array formula. Probably easiest to take a look at my example sheet. For some reason, the first result is working, but the others aren't.

[URL] .....

Alternatively, here is a screenshot.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

The formula I have tried is: =INDEX($E$3:$E$11,MATCH(1,IF($A$3:$A$11=G3,IF($B$3:$B$11=H3,

IF($C$3:$C$11=I3,IF($D$3:$D$11=MEDIAN(J3,K3,$D$3:$D$11),1,0) ,0),0),0),0))

confirmed with ctrl shift enter.

I've been trying to sum up invoices for specific contract lines while also taking into account if the invoice was deleted. There is a deleted column in which a "Y" is entered into the corresponding row meaning this invoice should no longer be accounted for.

I've been able to sum up the invoices per contract item just fine but I can't seem to get excel to account for the deleted column. I've attached a sample workbook which has dynamic named ranges already defined, the current array formula I'm using to sum up invoices and a pivot table that shows what the correct invoice amounts should be.

How could I add ">0" to the below formula array?

{=IFERROR(AVERAGE(IF(Reports!$A$1:$A$4000=A5,Reports!$H$1:$H$4000/86400)),"-")}

Reports!$A$1:$A4000 = column A lists multiple agent's names

A5 = a specific agent's name

Reports!$H$1:$H$4000 = column H contains a number which has been converted from time to a number

86400 = number of seconds in a day (the cell where I am placing the formula converts the number back to a time format)

The average I'm looking for will give me an average of all times which are greater than zero.

I have been trying for the last 2 hours to write a formula that does the following;

If a number appears in this table (on another worksheet named VAT Codes) then return VAT but if it appears in this table (on another worksheet named VAT Codes) then return NO VAT. The following formula returns VAT but N/A when it should say NO VAT; =IF(F3="","",IF(MATCH(F3,'VAT Codes'!$I$7:$I$19,FALSE),"VAT",IF(MATCH(F3,'VAT Codes'!$K$7:$K$143,FALSE),"NO VAT","")))

Why this formula code:

Code:

=INDEX(INDIRECT($A$3&D7&$A$4),MATCH(B7, INDIRECT($A$3&D7&$A$5),0),5)

Where A3 D7 and A4 concatenate to form a workbookname!named range1 and equally A3 D7 and A5 form workbookname!named range2 works perfectly well for a fixed range as named range, but not if the named range is dynamic using the typical OFFSET, COUNTIF method?

I need to be able to concatenate the range reference in this way, but for the named range reference to be a dynamic range that will grow and change with additions etc.

I am creating a summary page to analyse my golf scores. I have come to a dead end when looking at the Par statistics. Does anyone fancy a challenge and try to fill in some of the blanks on the summary tab. I am trying to use array formulas based on multiple criteria. for instance under the Best Par 3 section, it would look at all the Par 3's for whichever golfer is selected and then return the lowest number.

Im using an advanced filter that uses the following criteria

Days Late Note(s) Note(s)

>90 <>*agreement* <>*QTR*

This shows all data over 90 that do not incl the words agreement or QTR in a column marked Note(s).

My problem is that I do not want to show records that are Null in the Note(s) column.

Note(s)

<> Does not work (possibly because it is text and not Numbers)

as this does work if used on records that contain numbers.
