# Matrix Lookup To Format Cells

Apr 27, 2009

I have one sheet that is used to check off when certain questions are answered for an inspection of departments in a building. As the first image shows, Row 1 contains the questions; Column A contains the departments. I simplified this for the image, but the rows represent individual audits, over time, so a department will appear again and again on subsequent rows, as new audits are conducted. When it's time to do a new audit, the user starts a new row and selects the department in Column A from a drop down list (via data validation).

What I need to happen is when the user selects a department, certain cells under each question are filled with black, indicating that the question does not apply to that department.

## Matrix Lookup

Dec 4, 2006

I have a 5 x 5 matrix. When values are entered in 2 cell there needs to be a matrix lookup and the corresponding value needs to be entered into the 3 cell. Example :

- A B C D E
V 1 2 2 3 3
W 2 2 3 3 3
X 2 3 3 4 3
Y 3 3 4 4 5
Z 3 3 4 5 5

So if X and D are entered into the 2 cells the 3rd cell should show 4.

## Compare 2 Matrix's & Lookup Intersections

Mar 1, 2008

Assume you have unique colors across the top & unique fruit down column A. in Sheet1
I than have a two column tables in sheet two with uniqe fruit in column A & corresponding colors in Column B-H.

Is there a way for me to place an "X" on Sheet1 based on a lookup on Sheet 2, where the fruit intersects with the colors? I sure hope that's clear - I can't think of a better way to explain it. Or if there's a better way to solve this many to many matrix - do tell.

## Lookup The Values Contained Within The Matrix To Get Distances Between Them

Oct 8, 2009

I'm updating my database of distances between different cities in our records... but the source that i have to lookup is actually a distance matrix....something like this...

From/ToMumbaiPuneDelhiKochiBanglore
Mumbai024014501800900
Pune240015501650700
Delhi14501550028002400
Kochi1800165028000500
Banglore90070024005000

Now i need to lookup the values contained within the matrix to get distances between them. I'm hoping if i can do that i dont have to actually manually sit and list down all the possible combinations of cities and distances between them but directly lookup the distances from this matrix.

## Return Inverse Matrix Of Large Matrix

Aug 22, 2008

Using VBA, I wish to work out the inverse matrix of a large matrix (100*100), but keep getting the # Num! Error. I am using the minverse function. I have defined variable as "variant", does this give me the same possiblities in terms of number size as the variable "Double"?

## Writing Sub That Reads All Cells In Matrix?

Apr 11, 2013

How to write a sub that read all cells in the matrix ( a block of cells let's say: A5:F15).in two dimensionals. This is what I've done so far, but i got nothing:

## Pulling Data From Cells Into A Matrix?

Jun 22, 2013

In VBA I'm trying to grab numbers from a cell range (ie: A1:A10), and save them to a matrix or variable. I will later need to grab additional numbers and add it to that matrix. I have experimented several different ways, but belows demonstrates what I'm trying to do:

VB:
my_data = Range("A1:A10").Value
my_data = my_data&Range("B1:B10").Value

## Copy Cells & Paste Into Matrix

Jul 24, 2007

I have a spreadsheet with issue impact analyses tracked. I would have the Probability and Impact in two different columns with values ranging from 1 to 5. Each item has a reference number in Col A.

I have this matrix denoted in the file attached with Probability on the X axis and Impact on the Y axis as denoted in the image attached. you may note I have total of 9 cells in each block that represents different values of Impact for every value of Probability. Now I need to copy the reference numbers in the matrix presented at the bottom of the image in such a way that all the reference numbers with Probability 1 and varying Impact score will be sequnetially pasted in the cells of the squares with Probability 1 and Impact 1 to 5 (bottom most square blocks in the graph.

## Removing Blank Cells In A Large Matrix

Jun 12, 2009

This is my first post on this forum and I am an Excel novice. I have a worksheet with lots of blank cells and I need to shift all the cells with data all the way to the left (to column A). I cannot get the sort or filter functions to do this for me, and I've never used macros but it appears they might be useful for my problem. I'd like to find an automatic process to move the data left rather than drag and drop hundreds of times. I'm attaching the complete xls file for your viewing.

## Fill Empty Cells In Grid Matrix

Jan 16, 2008

I'm trying to write a sub function that when called will search left to right, top to bottom for the first empty cell in a 4x4 grid and insert a timestamp.

I've generated a large bulky bunch of code that seems to do the trick but I'm not terribly happy with it...

## Color Cells Within Matrix Based On Conditions Outside

Jun 5, 2008

In 'MAIN REPORT' there are thousands of columns of data, of which the important columns are 'Factory No.' and 'Row No' and 'Quantity'.

Each factory has its own worksheet as well.

In each of those factory sheets there is a 15x65 grid for each of the 65 rows that are mentioned in MAIN REPORT.

I have created and IF statement that checks if there is any data in 'Quantity row' and if there is it enters a "1" in the that cell of the virtual Factory grid.

This is the formula:
=IF('MAIN REPORT'!I2="","",1)
However, this simply checks that data while there is only 1 quantity for each row of each house.

Sometimes there will be different quantities (for diff. products), and I need a formula/macro that checks the line no. column and then,

If there are 5 items in row 7 for example then it will place five "1"'s in the first five cells of row seven in the corresponding factory sheet.

## How To Prevent Data From Moving Cells Within The Input Matrix

Apr 4, 2013

I have a worksheet that I will be allowing other to access so that I can get them to input certain data. I will be protecting the sheet to avoid having them inadvertantly overwrite any of my formulae. So, I have a matrix on the left for them to input data into with calculations to the right that they cannot change. Can I prevent them from moving cells within the input matrix

## Select Certain Cells In Matrix To Assign A 0-1 Or 1-0 Dyad 10,000 Times

Feb 23, 2010

I am a research student trying to calculate the linearity of a certain number of individuals (the subjects of my study).

In my matrix of individuals I have the row individuals dominant to column individuals given values of 1, and where individuals in the column are dominant to those in the row, a value of 0 is given. Where the relationships are "tied" a value of 0.5 is entered. I have more than 30 unknown relationships, which I have filled with "x".

What I have to do, is select these x-cells (Haha, Excels :P) and randomly insert a 1-0 or 0-1 dyad between the corresponding individuals. So if (in the data file) Garth and Nala are to have a 1-0 or 0-1 inserted to their corresponding cells, but they must be opposite; like if row-Garth gets a 1 on column-Nala, then column-Garth gets a 0 on row-Nala.

I have highlighted (in the second matrix) all of the non-x cells. I have to make 10,000 matrices (or at least replicate the application of these random 1-0/0-1 dyads 10,000 times).

## Lookup Or If Function: Find The Room Nights And Net Room Revenue Values For The Specific Rate Code In The "MATRIX" Workbook

Apr 7, 2009

I am having a bit of a problem creating a formula for this report that I have to update every week. I need to be able to find the room nights and net room revenue values for the specific rate code in the "MATRIX" workbook.

On "CURRENT REPORT," I need D4 to pull up the value on "MATRIX" that equals "Room Nights" in column H and "CONABC" in column J. The same thing needs to happen for F4 but with "Net Room Revenue" in column H. The full report has about 500 of these codes in column J, and I need a formula that I can copy easily and will not be affected if codes are added or removed. This is super last minute - I need to finish this report by tomorrow morning, so take a look at the attachments.

## Populate Cells In A Matrix From Goal Seek Values Based On

Aug 5, 2009

wish to write an VB macro in Excel (2003) that populates a 6 row by 10 column matrix (for a 3 D graph) by inserting values from matrix row column headers in cells in another worksheet and using goal seek to derive a value which will be pasted in the respective cell in the 6X10 matrix

Specific example: Matrix (Row Headers A2 to A7, Column Headers B1 to K1, Cell values are in B2 to K7). Please note row and column headers are numerical values since this is for a 3D graph

Macro to be written

Pick a value (numerical) from row header A3 in Sheet A and paste it in cell B6 in another sheet (Sheet B). Pick anothet value (numerical) from column header D1 in Sheet A and paste it in cell B7 in Sheet B.

Run a goal seek scenario such that cell S10 in sheet B is equal to 50 by changing cell G8 in Sheet B

Copy the value chosen/optimised by Goal Seek from cell G8 in Sheet B and paste it in Cell D3 (which is the relevant cell for the values for intersection of headers A3 and D1) in Sheet A

Macro should populate all cells in the matrix in Sheet A (matrix cells to be populated are B2 to K7) in a similar fashion

The macro should be locked in to the cells which are either being copied from or pasted into so that it still references them even if new columns or rows are inserted.

## Matrix - Identify Cell Content In Column For Row If Matrix Content True?

Mar 21, 2014

For a table like the one below produced for the sake of example (actual is much much bigger) I want to make it list rows that are true for a certain column for a certain variable in the matrix. So for say water terrain, which types of activity can I do i.e. swimming. Or for Offroad the activites which I can't do i.e. Run and Swim.

Jog nym
Run nyn
Walk nyy
Swim ynn
y=yes
n=no

## Set Up Conditional Format Using Two Way Lookup?

Jul 12, 2012

I'm trying to set up a conditional format using a two way lookup. The chart is 15 colums across and perhaps 500 down. Index / Match functions do find the correct value - BUT - the challenge is there ARE duplicate values in either the column or row that are "all" getting highlighted with the conditional format (color a cell).

## Lookup To Return Value And Format

Aug 3, 2007

My workbook contains two worksheets a scorecard template and a data sheet. I use the lookup function to retrieve statistics from the data to populate various fields in the scorecard template. The value can be numeric, currency or percentages depending on the lookup criteria. Although the data shows the correct formats in the data sheet, when the lookup retrieves the value it only shows the value as number format. Is there a way the cell can retrieve the cell format information as well as the value and apply it to the cell

## Lookup Based On Format

Jan 18, 2008

I am trying to read down a column of unknown rows stopping when it reaches a colored cell, calculate the results and return it to the colored cell "before" the read cells.

Is this possible?

For example:
A3 is a colored cell that I need to return results of say A4:A6
A4:A6 have the data
A5 is a colored cell that has results from say A6:A12
A6:A12 have the data
etc...

Now the data to calculate is from a Data Validation list that ignores Blanks
accepted values: Blank, Yes, No and Maybe
If ANY No, colored cell = No
If ANY Maybe, colored cell = Maybe
If ANY Blanks, leave colored cell blank
If ALL Yes, colored cell = Yes

"No" wins over any value
"Maybe" wins over Yes and blank
"Blank" wins over Yes

It may be possible to simplify by breaking the "results" cell into another column but the above mentioned is their preferred way to handle and "automate" it. Also might be easier to put the results cell at the end of the read cells?

## Lookup Tables With Time Format

Jun 12, 2006

I am trying to use lookup to search a table of data to return a value. The only problem is the data that I want to search is in [h]:mm:ss.0 format. And to make maters worse the search variable might not match exactly. I just can't get it to work. Basically I have a form that the user puts in their time to run a certain distance and I want it to return the corresponding VDOT value.

for example, if I can run 800m in 4mins 12 seconds, I would enter 04:12 into the form, and the function would look up 0:04:12 in column B and return the value of 66 from cell K38. I thought that it could be done by using lookup and the setting the relevant column by Offset but it doesn't and I'm at a loss. I've attched the data sheet so you can have a look.

## Convert Cells With Percentage Format To 'same' Decimal In A Column With Mixed Format

Jun 7, 2006

I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

## Time Format: Format Cells To Contain Minutes, Seconds And Hundredths

Oct 15, 2009

How can I format cells to contain Minutes, Seconds and Hundredths of seconds to be used in calculations eg 1.24.99 means 1 minute and 24.99 seconds. Example calculation is: 1.24.99 - 1.24.90 =0.0.09

## Graph To Automatically Change Format Depending Upon Lookup Information

Mar 9, 2012

I have a graph which displays information from a vlookup.. The vlookup can bring either numbers which are in percentages format or ordinary number format.

The question I have is is it possible for the graph to automatically change format depending upon the information who is looked up..

If so how can this be done..

## Excel 2003 :: Conditional Format Top / Mid / Bottom 33% Of Cells But Ignoring Blank Cells

Mar 25, 2012

I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....

Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003)
Top 34%:
=IF(INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D\$38)*34%)>0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*34%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*67%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$38)*100%)),MAX( \$D\$3:\$D\$38))
