# Match Function To Return Column Number For Matching Date Errors?

Aug 5, 2014

I am trying to use some vba match function code to return the column number of the matching date. The date will be stored in a date variable.

Every time I run this code I normally get a match error even though the date is in the worksheet and the variable matches that date.

See below:

## 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.

## 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.

## Formula To Find Matching Values In One Column And Return Totals For All Rows That Match

Dec 26, 2013

table1.jpg

I am looking for a formula that will satisfy the following:

1) find all the values in column "A" that match
2) In column "G", sum up all the values in "F" that go with the matching values in column "A"
3) For example, in rows 14-16, the values in column "A" match. Cell G16 sums up F14:F16

## VBA Match Function With Multiple Criteria To Return Row Number

Jul 16, 2012

I'm trying to figure out how to write a VBA Match function that can look for multiple criteria and return the row number of a successful match.

I have about 255,000 rows of data on the worksheet "Filtered". Column B contains my Item Number and Column D contains the supply source. I want to find the row where ItemNumber and SupplySource match my variables and then return the value from Column C.

I can do a match for one criteria, but where I'm having problems is getting it so the two matches are on the same row.

## VBA Index Match Function With Errors

Sep 29, 2013

I'm trying to replicate the iferror index match function from excel into vba. The excel version is

=IFERROR(INDEX('billing-data'!B:C,MATCH(C2,'billing-data'!C:C,0)+0,1),"")

Which works fine. In vba I have:

Cells(i, 19) = Application.WorksheetFunction. _
Index(Sheets("billing-data").Range("B:B"), _
Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(Sheets("payment-data").Range("c" & i), _
Sheets("billing-data").Range("C:C"), 0), 1)

There are some mismatches and I get an error message with this which prevents the all the data from being displayed.

I'd like to show Cells(i, 19) as null or blank if there is a mismatch or error.

## Match Date In Column & Return Corresponding Value

Jun 17, 2009

I have used index/match before to match and extract data, but I can't seem to wrap my head around this one. It's probably best explained by looking at the attached workbook. Basically, I want formulas in 'John Doe!B' and 'Jane Doe!B' to look up the Name and Date values in column A on the 'Data' sheet, and then return the time value that is on the same row but in the 'Data!B' column.

I then want 'John Doe!C' and 'Jane Doe!C' to return the time that is two rows below the time shown in 'John Doe!B' - I've gone and manually entered and bolded the values in the workbook to show what I eventually want the formula to do. The data on the 'Data' tab will be extracted monthly into excel from tracking software my company uses, but there will always be a minimum of 3 rows of time for each date. As you can see in the example workbook, some dates will be omitted for some people, and while there will always be 3 minimum rows there will often be many more time entry rows for different dates as well. However, I'm only concerned with the 1st row and 3rd row for each date.

I was originally thinking a vlookup for 'John Doe!B' and then a hlookup for 'John Doe!C' that references the value in B might work, but I'm getting stuck on how to ensure the formula realizes the differences between the data and dates for John Doe and Jane Doe.

## Match Function Not Matching Text In Formula?

Jul 11, 2014

with Match function not matching text in this formula?

Using the below formula cell \$L\$11 (it contains "abc") will not match the respective cell contents in array E:E even though "abc" is in a cell within column E.

=IFERROR(INDEX('Paste In Data File'!G:G,MATCH(\$L\$11,IF('Paste In Data File'!C:C=B14,'Paste In Data File'!E:E),0)),"")

The cells within column E are populated using a formula such as =IF(MID(A6,3,1)="a",MID(A6,435,9),"")

Column A is the data source and contains a text string.

After much trial and error, it seems the cause preventing the match is; \$L\$11 contains typed in text "abc" and the above formula for column E is pulling in 9 characters, not just 3.

It seems that if I can modify the entry for the array E:E to just look at the left 3 characters only, it may work.Problem is I do not know how to modify E:E accordingly.

## DATE Function & IF Function (return A TRUE Or FALSE Based On A Date In A Cell)

Dec 8, 2009

I am trying to return a TRUE or FALSE based on a date in a cell.

for example:

if cell A1 = 07/11/2009

I want A2 to show TRUE or FALSE if A1 is 14 days or more behind todays date.

I have tried stuff like:

=IF(A1=TODAY()-14,"True","False")

but it just always says false. EDIT: I have just noticed that if I change the date in A1 to exactly 14 days behind todays, it returns TRUE. So, it does work. Do I need to add a GREATER THAN in there?

## Excel 2010 :: Find Matching Info And Return Another Number?

Dec 3, 2013

I am trying to create a formula for a work report and I am afraid I am a bit of a novice with the more complex formulas. Here is what I am trying to do: Sheet 1 has Sales order numbers that duplicate based on the sales lines. Sheet 2 has single lines of sales order numbers and their assigned PO number. I would like to have Sheet 3 where it combines all data and duplicates and fills in the PO number to match all of the sales order numbers that repeat on the other sheet. I hope this makes sense. I can't seem to figure out if I need a VLookup or If or Match formula (or all of the above).

## Average Column Of Cells But Ignore Errors And Return Average Of Numbers That Are There

Jun 14, 2013

E11 through E24 contains numbers and a few errors (#N/A) that need to persist (the errors need to show).

E10 needs to show the average of the numbers that are in E11 through E24, and just ignore the errors.

I have many columns like that - where the errors need to show and I need to show an average of the number/values that do appear, ignoring the errors.

## MATCH Function Inconsistent In Return Value

Jul 12, 2008

I am using Excel 2002 and trying to do something which should be simple with MATCH.

I have an array of numbers ordered, starting at 0 and incrementing by 0.05 up to 20. I am then using the MATCH function to find the relative position of numbers 0,1,2,3,4 and 5. However, for number 0,1 and 2 the return value is one less than what it should be, for the numbers 3, 4 and 5 it is working as expected. By the way, the match_type I am using is the default 1.

Also I have formatted everything to be numbers and tried various things already, so am beginning to wonder is this is a known issue.

## Using Index / Match Function For Two Column Match Values

Aug 28, 2012

Basically where the columns say 2011 or 2012 AND 1, 2, 3. I want to be able to have it index the number below based on the GL number on the left and both the year and period on the top. I think that you can do with using the sumproduct function with the binary, but the computer is a little dated and it takes a while to run those calculations.

## Return Value In Third Column If Values In First Two Columns Matching?

Mar 20, 2014

I have a two different workbooks book 1 and book 2 with some data.

If values of first two columns ( Column A and B) of both workbooks are matching then I want a formula that can return the value of third column (column c) of book 2 in book 1 column c.

example:

Book 1

column A / Column B / Column C

100 / 200 /

Book 2

Column A / Column B / Column C

100 / 200 / 300

now I want a formula that can return in column C of book 1 to display 300.

And the data runs across some 100 rows in both workbooks.

## 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.

## From Matching Numbers In One Column Return Value Of Second Cells In Another Cell?

May 19, 2014

I have a table with 4 columns where in column 3 I have part numbers and in column 4 I have the number sold. In column 3, the part sold can be listed several times with a different number sold in the column 3. What I need is code to go through the part numbers and return a total number sold for that part in a new column. I have sorted the table by part number, then by Column 1 which is for the date. The new total should go in the last column with the oldest date for that part.

## 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?

## Function For Matching Last 4 Characters To Second Column

Feb 21, 2009

I've been trying to find this on the web but haven't a clue now, I have a database query that I am pulling from an access database and now I am trying to match the last four characters of a referral string to a current location, let me show you what I mean. Example,

A(location string) B(current location) C(last location)
car/kitchen/house kitchen NO
kitchen/garage/car car YES
kitchen/car/garage car NO

I want to write a function in column C that matches the last four characters of the location string (column A) with the current location (column B) , and if they match have a YES in column C, or a conversely a NO.

## Find Matching Document Value And Max Date Using Function Based On Certain Parameter

Sep 22, 2009

I have the following info in a table:

name | doc date | doc value
a | 2009/01/01 | IN111
b | 2009/02/04 | IN222
c | 2009/02/05 | IN333
a | 2009/01/05 | CN111
d | 2009/03/01 | IN444
b | 2009/03/01 | CN222
a | 2009/04/01 | IN555

Firstly, I need to find the LAST DOCUMENT DATE for "a" where #doc_value starts with IN*** (invoice). Manually, I can see that it would be "2009/04/01", but my spreadsheet runs 6000+ entries. I need a function to do this.

Secondly, I need to find the corresponding #doc_value for that date (in this case, IN555).

## Return Highest Value Of Column Headings With Matching Text In Array?

Mar 7, 2013

I have an array of data with multiple codes stored in text...

I want to set a formula in a cell to look for all instances of specific text in an array. Then compare the value of all of the column headings, which are numbered across the top of the array, which contain a match in that column and return the highest value.

Example: 10x10 array, columns 1,3, and 5 contain "text" somewhere in those columns. Formula would return 5.

## 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.

## Excel 2010 :: INDEX MATCH Only Returns First Value Instead Of All Matching Values In Selected Column

Jul 18, 2014

Excel 2010: I'm working with a sheet where I would like to get accurate results on the make and model of cars sold in a given week. The workbook contains several worksheets each representing weekly sales numbers for different vehicles.

The Make-Models tab has the lists used to create the drop-down selections.

The Sales tab allows one to create an ad hoc report on the total number of vehicles sold, by Make and Model. Cell B2 is named 'SelectedModel' and used in the formula found in column E, Total Sold.

Problem: When I select Honda, for example in B2 of the Sales worksheet then select Accord in cell B3 of the same. The results returned in E2, E3 and E4 are 2, 3 and 4, respectively, instead of 8, 3 and 7.

2 Honda Accords were sold on Monday and 6 on Tuesday of the same week. My formula is only returning the first matched value of 2 whereas I would like it to return 2+6, 8 for week 1. Same goes for other weeks.

Select any other make and model and notice the problem follows. I believe the error is due to incorrect usage of the formula or incorrect formula altogether.

IF(ISNA(INDEX(Week1!E:E,MATCH(SelectedModel,Week1!B:B,0))),0,
INDEX(Week1!E:E,MATCH(SelectedModel,Week1!B:B,0)))

## 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.

## Return Date If Records Match?

Dec 7, 2012

I need to get dates from one file to another. They can be matched on ID.

So if the ID for a record from FileA matches the ID for a record in FileB, return the date from the date from the same row in FileA to FileB. I would just sort and copy them over, but FileA has more records than FileB. All distinct IDs share the same date.

## 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.

## Return State Value Based On Match Of Name And Number Between High And Low

Aug 27, 2013

I have a set of data (Data tab) that lists name, a high number, a low number, and the state that is associated with the name and range between the high and low number (see attachment). I am trying to figure out a formula that will return the state value based on a match of the name and the number between the high and low. I am trying to use Index/Match but i cant figure out the "between the high and low" portion.

## 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.
