# Match Index: The Value Yes To Return The Row Number

Jun 22, 2009

in one column I am looking up the value Yes to return the row number.

=MATCH("Yes",C:C,0) in this case it returns a 2

I want to use this row number in a sum...

i.e. =sum(b2:b&x) where x is the row number from the formula above, but it just errors out.

## Index And Match Formula: Return The Correct Serial Number Based On Both The Matching

Jun 24, 2009

I'm trying to create a formula in cell f13 of my attached spreadsheet "Sample 1" that will search the 2nd attached spreadsheet "Sample 2" and return the correct serial number based on both the matching PO # (located in cell E10 on Sample Sheet 1 and in Column 5 on Sample Sheet 2) and Product # (cell A13 on my Sample Sheet 1). My current formula is not returning the correct result and I'm not sure why.

## Index And / Or Match Formula With Multiple Match Required To Return A Value

Jan 21, 2014

See attached file, "Rate Sample Index-Match Formula".

I need a formula to return the value at the cross section of two (2) lookup values that match. This formula will be input into column D under, "RATE" on the 1st tab, "TEST FILE".

In the 1st tab, "TEST FILE" there are a series of columns as follows;

A = Service
B = From
C = To
D = Rate

In the 2nd tab, "RATES" there is a series of rates with drivers From (green) & To (blue)

The formula needs to do the following;

1. Lookup the "From" value in column B on tab, "TEST FILE" and match to column B2:B59 on tab, "RATES" both highlighted in green
2. Then Lookup the "To" value in column C on tab, "TEST FILE" and match to row C1:BH1 on tab, "RATES" both highlighted in blue
3. Then return the value at the cross section of the match "From" (point 1 above) & "To" (point 2 above) in range C2:BH59

For Example;

The rate From SYD To CBR = 0.33. I have highlighted this in yellow on both tabs to show where the formula needs to lookup the data to return the answer.

## VLOOKUP / INDEX And MATCH To Return All Values That Match

Feb 4, 2014

I have two sheets of data , sheet A and Sheet B.

Sheet B contains a column called "Name" and for each name, and for each name there are corresponding numbers. In sheet A, I have a "list of interest" in column A. What i want to do look through the data in sheetB to find a match from the list of interest and return the corresponding letters, located in column A.

I have filled out the first two rows of results that should be returned as an example.

One idea i had was to put a vlookup formula in each column result 1 to result 6 so i can catch all 6 "Serves" columns from column B, but there may be duplicates in the serve columns and vlookup only reports the first match.

## Counting Number Of Times INDEX / MATCH Finds More Than 1 Match?

May 23, 2014

We know how INDEX/MATCH works, and it's very nice. I attached a COUNTIF to it to count how many times the index finds itself on another table; if it doesn't find itself, then it goes blank. However, this time I need to count how many times it finds a certain string condition in the other table.

The columns that need to be filled are shaded in dark pink.

## Using INDEX And MATCH: Look In The First Two, And Return A Value In The Third

Jun 25, 2009

I have two active worksheets. The first one is called 'Chart' and the second is 'Values'. I have three columns of data. I would like to look in the first two, and return a value in the third. =INDEX(Values!\$C\$1:\$C\$299,MATCH(Values!\$D\$1:\$D\$299,LEFT(Chart!A1:A16091,6)&" "&LEFT(Chart!C1:C16091,2)),0) .........

## Index Match Smallest Return?

Jul 1, 2014

I am very competent using the index match formula and have incorporated this into many spreadsheets to auto-fill for avoiding input errors. The objective I am attempting now is to retrieve from a list of 2800 entries the smallest return on an index match formula.

From the data below if my Index Match formula uses C1 to index and match my return is always a7 (-12.7) the first in the list, where my desire is a return of a19 (-14.11). To complex this problem I often have duplicate amounts that need to be listed when they fall into my parameters. I have figured that the Small function allows me to assign first smallest, second smallest, and so forth.

I prefer not to use vlookup for simplicity and error avoidance issues.

## Formula Index Match Return 1st Value Then 2nd And 3rd?

Aug 4, 2014

How can I modify this formula so it retrieves the 1st matching value (like always), but then the 2nd match, 3rd, etc.:

{=INDEX(\$A\$2:\$D\$6,MATCH(F2:\$F\$6&G2:\$G\$6&H2:\$H\$6,\$A\$2:\$A\$6&\$B\$2:\$B\$6&\$C\$2:\$C\$6,0),4)} sheet attached: Example.xlsx

## Index & Match To Return Value Between Two Dates

Feb 12, 2010

how to go about this, as I always get confused with Index and Match. In my example, in col A I have the Beginning of a period, Column B is the End of the Period, and the amount to be matched is in Column D. Range A1 to E4 is the source data. Below that, starting from A9 to A37 are dates. I would like to match the corresponding value in range D2:D3 if the date in range in A9 : A37 falls between the period stated in A2:B3. I've listed how the values should appear in C9:C37.

## Return Result From Match Not In Index?

Nov 10, 2011

What I want to do is, given the data in col. a, I want to supply a number(range) of strings which can be found in column a, whenever a string is found, which exists in given range, I want to write the string from the Key(col. c) in col b instead of the value from the string that matches a value.

See below for example of what I got working but not exactly what I was looking for

Col. A- Data
Orangegreen
Blackwhite
Blueyellow

Col. B - Result

Col. C - Keys
Orange
White
Yellow

I used

Code:
=INDEX(A1:A3,MATCH("*"&C1&"*",A1:A3,0))

This does produce a result, but not entirely what I am after.

This requires only one string to search for, and will in cell B1 result in a value of 'Orangegreen' as I can only supply one valeu to the function. What I want to do is supply the function with a range of values, and have those values outputtet in colb instead af the value of cells where the result is found.

I tried modifying the function to include a range, but that does not produce a valid result.

## Index And Match Return Higher Value

## Formula To Return Index Match

Feb 17, 2013

In column B I enter a date when a student attended tutoring.
In column C I enter the name of a student attending the tutoring.

In cell D4, I will be entering a student name

In cells D5:D55 I'd like a formula that transposes the dates (if any) that a student attended tutoring. So if a student has their name appear beside the dates ... 14-Feb, 22-Mar, 24-Mar .... then I'd like those three dates to appear in cells D%, D6 and D7.

How to formulate this ... I'm guessing it's going to involve an index-match formula.

## Index Match But Only Return Value If Cell To Right And Above 1 Is Negative?

Apr 3, 2014

I have an array formula which is working as expected returning the value of column K (offset by -1) if a number of criteria are matched.

[Code].....

The issue I'm having is there are occasionally duplicate values in column W and it's using the first value in its return, which isn't always correct.

Unfortunately due to the limited matches available the only way I can think to identify the correct value is by adding an additional criteria, which is that the correct value would always have a negative in Column X one cell above and to the right of where the value is being retrieved from. If there was no negative it would ignore this result.

Is there any way to add an additional criteria to the formula to stipulate that it must match a negative in column X but one cell above?

## Return Rows That Fit Criteria Via Index / Match?

Nov 6, 2013

I have a dataset of a few hundred rows, but will only provide a small sample of rows for this example.

I need INDEX/MATCH to return the correct values for the subset below.

Column A (Forecast Status) - Column B (Account Name)
Commit - Account01 (Row 1)
Commit - Account02 (Row 2)
Won - Account03 (Row 3)
Won - Account04 (Row 4)
Won - Account05 (Row 5)
Upside - Account06 (Row 6)
Lost - Account07 (Row 7)
Upside - Account08 (Row 8)
Won - Account09 (Row 9)
Commit - Account10 (Row 10)

In a new tab, I am creating a 'dashboard' view that will group each of the following:

Commit ONLY Accounts in cell A1 (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 1,2,10)
Won ONLY Accounts in B1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 3,4,5,9)
Upside ONLY Accounts in C1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 6,8)
Lost ONLY Accounts in D1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 7)

## Index/Match To Return A Blank Cell

Feb 25, 2009

make an adjustment to my Formula so that if the Index match locates a cell that is blank it returns a blank cell rather than a 0. I know we need to add in =IF(iserror( but i am aving trouble..

## Can Index Or Match Return Multiple Results

Nov 27, 2006

I've spent the last week trying to do the following, with little to no success....and I'm running out of hair to pull out!!

I have a worksheet (let's call it DATA) with the following column headers:
* Site Name
* Year Initiated
* Status

plus a whole bunch of other columns of information.

On a separate worksheet (let's call it RESULTS) I'm trying to create a summary of all the Site Names where the Year Initiated = "2004" and the Status = "Active". There will be multiple occurences where this is true.

I then want to create further results where the year = 2005, 2006, etc., etc. I've been trying to use the INDEX function with variations of MATCH, SMALL, ROW, etc., etc., but so far, no luck.

Advanced Filtering is not an option as I need to do further manipulating of the results on the RESULTS worksheet.

## Using A Forumla To Return The Position Of A Value Like Index Match

Jun 16, 2009

I have a workbook that uses several indentification fields one for Job ID, One as a subID which occurs for every part of a job, i am currently using formula

## Return List Of Values Index/match

Aug 26, 2009

I have a list of data that I want to average the number in column B when there is a match in column A

COLUMN A | COLUMN B
alpha | 100
beta | 200
gamma | 300
alpha | 400
beta | 500

What I'm looking to do is return the MEAN of values in column B where column A = alpha. Though, I would settle for returning a list of the values that match the criteria. Index/Match combinations don't seem to be helping me because they only return the first match, I'd like to return all matches.

## Index / Match Return Header Value Based On Row And Cell Value

Apr 24, 2012

I have a rather large table that I need to return the column heading from.

Within the table I have a list of Names in the left most Column (A) and a list of Percentiles in the header row (row 2) (incrementing by 5%). By inputting the name and a cell value I am trying to return the column header.

Using an example;

5% 10% 15%
Bob 3.5 4.1 4.15
John 3.6 4.2 4.30
Chris 3.3 4.9 4.95
Sammy 3.7 4.6 4.7

Like I said, knowing the name and the cell value, I want to return the percentage value. So for example, Bob would be one input value, and another input value would be 4.1. I would want excel to return 10%.

I have found different suggestions using a combination of index/match but even using these functions I cannot get it to return the COLUMN value instead of a cell value.

## Formula To Return Array To Use In Index / Match Function?

May 8, 2013

I need to find a way to find an array in a tab to use for an index/match function I have.

this is what i would normally use: =index(tab_array,match(\$a2, tab!\$a\$1:\$a\$1000,0),match(\$B\$1,tab!\$a\$1:\$zz\$1,0))

This formula would usually work fine when I know that within the tab, the array in which the row match is searching doesn't change. However, that array may change in the future, to say column H, without my knowing as it is a database that gets automatically populated from an upstream system.

Is there a way to search for an array within an index/match?

## 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.

## Excel 2007 :: Using INDEX And MATCH Function To Return Header Value

Mar 26, 2013

currently using Excel 2007 with Windows Vista.

I currently have a worksheet where I want to input a date (G2) and a rank value (H2) ranging from 1 to 4. The header value (B1:E1) corresponding to the date (A2:A4) and the rank (B2:B4) should be returned to I2 (currently returns #NA).

Using formula: =INDEX(\$B\$1:\$E\$1,MATCH(H2,INDEX(\$B\$2:\$E\$4,MATCH(G2,\$A\$2:\$A\$4),)))

which I found under: Find row, find value, then return column heading

However, the above formula does not seem to work with my date order or recurring data values of 1 to 4 over the 3 rows.

The worksheet layout is as follows:

Date

A

B
C
D

Date

Rank

[code]....

The return value under Header should be C.

I have reversed the order of the dates and put sequential numbers in B2:B4 as plug variables and the above formula will return the correct Header value but I need the formula to work with the current date order and repeating rank values of 1 to 4 in B2:B4. Do not wish to use VBA.

## Lookup / Match And Index To Return Percentage To Table To Draw A Radar Chart?

Jun 25, 2014

I'm struggling with match, index and lookup functions. I have a formula in column D that calculates the percentage of answers against the total score for that category. The way it calculates enables me to delete rows if they are not needed and still provide a total count and a percentage score.

Now the percentage is returned from a dynamic data set, I want to plot the percentages on a spider/radar chart. Instead of manually creating the chart or using a pivot, I wanted to lookup the percentages (column D) against the category (Column A) in question and plot so the chart updates as the user changes the answers.

## Offset / Index / Match - Using 3 Functions To Search For And Return Values From Data Sheet

Jan 19, 2014

Trying to grasp the concept of using these 3 functions to search for and return values from a data sheet.

The attached spread sheet has performance data for a group of employees.

What I need to do is find a particular employee then return a value for one of the category's.

For instance, I need to find "10TE03 ANGIE HOLLIS" Parts Usage on color or cell C10 in the attached sample.

Sometimes new category's are added to column A adding to the number of rows so a simple offset is not reliable.

Once I get that working, I then need to use a named range to total and average different data points for groups of employees by teams.

Maybe Offset-Index-Match is not even the way to go here?

## Index/Match & Sum: Returns The First Number

## Change The Index Number When Match

Jan 16, 2010

I have to do a vlookup in 12 sheets (named ranges)

I use the formula '=vlookup(a1;choose(1;range1;range2; etc);2;0)

In this case I have to change the 'choose index_num' every time to match.

Is it possible to do the lookup without changing the 'choose index_num'?

## Find Number In Array That Is Less Than INDEX MATCH?

Jun 25, 2014

Cell P14 = 4.7

My array is H42:N72, in H42:H72 I have numbers 15,14,13....0,-1,-2,-3, etc...

In N42:N72 there is a corresponding \$ amount that I would like to return based on finding the value which is greater than 4.7 (so, looking to match the \$\$ amount to the number 5 in column H42:H72)

I've tried using INDEX MATCH but can't figure this out.

## Reverse VLookup (Index Match) To Return Multiple Values Based On Single Lookup Criteria

Jul 11, 2012

I have encountered a situation where I need to essentially accomplish a reverse Vlookup (using index match) and return multiple values.

## Count Number Of Cells > 0 While Using VLookup / Index-Match

Aug 22, 2014

From the highlighted cells at B17 to B19, while using some kind of lookup or indexing method, I want to count the number of cells in that specific range that's great than zero. This list is just a sample, the list will be much bigger and order may not be the same--that's why I need to lookup the project name.

## Formulas By Using VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, INDEX&MATCH Separately

Oct 8, 2009

I have this table

.......A.....B.....C....D
1.....I......a.....d.....g

2.....II.....b.....e.....h

3.....III....c.....f......i

As you can see, the number I has a,d,and g, II has b,e,and h, and III has c, f, and i

I want to make formula that if I make the input g it would return I, f would return III, and c would return III, and so on

I want to make four formulas by using VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, INDEX&MATCH separately.
