Multiple Lookup Values Rows And Columns To Lookup Single Target Column On Right End?
Apr 7, 2014
I have a table of data (say Column1 to Column 5) with multiple rows.
Column 1 to 4 will have the lookup values in multiple rows and Column 5 data should be picked up using vlookup or other lookup function.
I managed to somehow bring all these lookup values in (Column 1 to 4) in a single column in another sheet. I am now trying to use some lookup or other functions to match this single column and pick column 5 data in original sheet. Result i am expecting is lookup value in first column and next to it column 5 value.
It is basically a lookup wherein lookup value is spread over multiple rows and columns and result column is fixed. I tried using vlookup, but lookup value column and column number had to change every time when i moved from column1 to 4.
I want to create a certification only list on a separate tab of training that has been completed where a certification has been issued (as indicated by a "Y" in the "Certification?" column on the training tracking tab) and then populate from some of the fields vs. all of the fields.
What I have now, only pulls the first occurence, not all occurences. I saw that I could have identified the multiple columns that needed to be populated, but it didn't work either, so I'm fine putting a separate vlookup in each column.
I know something very similar was posted before, but unfortunately, it wasn't what I was looking for. I have a Worksheet tracking several associates and the department they have done work in. (Our associates are contractors for other departments). I need to have a final worksheet that allows me to pull up a name, and display every dept they worked with in the past week.
I'm working on a database right now for our school, similar to a directory. What I want to do is be able to look up what items a staff member has been issued and when/if they were returned. What I have right now is one sheet with all the information about the staff that looks like the one below. I want to create a separate sheet where you could look up a staff member by last name and can find all the information in the array relative the the specific cell looked up.
Last Name First Name Position Building Items
So, on the "lookup" sheet, I want to be able to input either Doe and have the look up return cells B2:E6, or if I input Smith it should return cells B7:D11.
I've been experimenting with Vlookup, hlookup, index, and match but haven't been able to get exactly what I want..
Use a referenced lookup value from sheet "A", to return values, from several columns in sheet "B"
Things to note:
a) The lookup values sometimes repeat. I need all the associated values with each repetition as well.
b) The lookup values in sheet "A" are a comprehensive list, sheet "B" also contains some of these values but not all. Essentially, what I need to do is find a way to lookup each value in an account numbers column in sheet "A", against a different account numbers column in sheet "B".
If that value occurs in sheet "B" I want it to return the values from Columns X, Y, Z, (I want these values returned in sheet "A".
If that value does not occur in sheet B, the corresponding cells should remain blank.
If the lookup value occurs multiple times, I need all the corresponding values from each of X, Y, Z columns.
I have a table (Arrears) showing a list of customers with part numbers and quantities in arrears. A second table is a customer order table showing details of what needs to be shipped for a given date.
Based on these two tables, I would like to add a column to the Order table to show the values for arrears against the order quantity for the given date. In addition if there are no order requirements but there are arrears then insert a row to show the corresponding arrears.
see the attached spreadsheet for more details. This shows the two source tables (Arrears and Order) and the expected results showing the added column for arrears and the inserted rows.
I would like to put a formula (or make a macro) for Cell F7 (and all the other cells too) in sheet "Budget Sheet" that pulls the value $100 from cell G5 from sheet "Input Sheet" by looking through columns A-F for the account ID "5111100"
- I (for the most part) cannot change the format of "Budget Sheet" or "Input Sheet"
- I cannot have the formula (or macro) just look down Column F because the actual file I am working with has the pertinent account IDs scattered through columns D-F (it was exported from another program).
Notes: - I am using Excel 2003 SP3 - If necessary, I can make the reference to "5111100 · Bonus" if that would make things simpler
- Column G will always contain the dollar amount I need.
-I've been hitting the books trying to figure out how to get array formula working on this and cannot for the life of me get it to obey when I press ctrl-shift-enter.
I have 300 rows worth of data that looks similar to this, all organized in one column:
John Q. Smith Programmer 2111 NW 13th St Anywhereville, USA, 55555 (555) 555-5555 Joe P. Snider Organizer 5645 NW 45th St Anywhereville, USA, 55555 (555) 555-5555 Patty Williams Accountant 6454 NW 34th St Anywhereville, USA, 55555 (555) 555-5555
As you can see it is consistent with the name, position, address line 1, address line 2, Phone number, for every single entry. All my names are already alphabetized so I don't have to worry about it. What I want to do is have the information for each entry translated into 5 separate columns so it looks like this.

Supposing I started the sheet in the top left corner at A1, I was just going to have cell B1=A1 then Cell B2=A6 then just autofill down column B but it doesn't work. I have seen some people do something similar to what I want with VBA but I am convinced there has to be something simple in with an excel formula seeing as my information is already so organized and consistent.
I now need to determine the Terminal for postalcode 1086 in BE but since the postal code that I need to find is within a range (1070-1099) that is within a single cell, and there is a second argument (BE) in the next column, my novice knowledge of VLOOKUP() isn't sufficient to come to a result
On one of the reports which i am doing to identify the series of values for a single input data. In the attached spreadsheet there are 2 tables, table 1 has complete data with column a is the lookup value and column b is output value
I have to fill the table 2 in the same manner as shown in the attached template. there could be many different for a single lookup value but i am targeting to look for the 1st 9 matches and last matched value. eg. if i am looking for the value 9 which has 15 different values i want to display the 1st 9 matches (p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x and ad - being the 15th match)
Not sure whether this could be possible by using formulas?
I have attached a copy of what I am trying to do. I've been researching vlookup for a while and everything I try doesn't seem to work. I'm also fairly new to Excel, so most of this is my first time trying these formulas.
In the attached test.xls file, I have two sheets created. The first is "Responsibility," and the second is "List." The data in "List" is what I am trying to pull from. As you can see, the people's names are listed more than once as the list goes down. On the "Responsibility" page I have each person's name one time. In the "Extinguisher" column, I'm wanting it to list every number that is found next to the person's name on the "List" sheet. For example:
Column B2 on the "Responsibility" sheet should read as follows:
My daily receiving list has Item# received that day e.g. ReceiptList.xls Item# 123 456 I need to compare this to a Data Base list that has 10000 item# , seller, and status (this data base can have repeated same item# but varied seller and therefore different status e.g. Ing.xls (Data Base file) Item# Seller Status 123 ABC Approved 123 GMC Not Approved 456 ABC Pending 456 XYZ Not Approved 456 QRS Approved etc. +10000 items Now I need to compare the daily receipts to the data base file and pull all the sellers for those particular items and their status which like I said could be on many rows, one row, or not listed at all to the ReceiptList.xls(which I can then make sure that the received items are from an Approved source etc.)
I have been already fighting for about a week with this problem. I attached the Excel-file. I have three input data and as output I want to get also three different data. For Vendor I use the VLOOKUP function. For agreement# I have used (not in this file) CONCATENATE by adding an extra column to the data table and then use VLOOKUP.
The actual problem is to find the price because it is based on the three input data. I can't seem to find a function for it. I've tried INDEX, MATCH, IF, nested them for as far as my knowledge reaches. The problem lies for as far as I know in the del.date cell. For example, input date is: Client#:912345, Product:E569831, del.date: 16.7. (July 16th). This input date should return cell G12.
I am trying to create a formula that will look in 3 columns containing 300 rows, and give an answer if the criteria in all 3 columns is met on a single row. example: A B C 1 Blue Bag 60 2 Red Bag 100 3 Blue Bag 60
I want to check ALL the rows in the 3 columns that satisfy the criteria "Blue" and "Bag" and "60" and count how many times this occurs. I have tried COUNTIF but with no success, unless I am doing it wrong.
and I want to look up an approximate value in Col2, say 310, and return it's next-highest friend from Col3, in this case "g". This is easy enough with INDEX and MATCH. But I want to take it one step further and only use those values which are approved by Col1 - so in this case I want 310 to ACTUALLY return "e"
I found some good information here which gets me close. The following works very well. It uses a boolean & operator to match two values at once, but it only works for exact matches. This example goes down the list and finds the first "sydney" which has an "x" and gives the result "h".
I've been working this for ever and can't seem to figure out the best way to go about it. I have attached an example sheet. All I need to do is figure out the Dept #... which is listed in Row 1, Column F:H. I want to match the project numbers and then return the AA, BB, or CC in Column B.
I'm using an index array formula I learned here to lookup a value between 2 sheets in a workbook. I have had no trouble using it when matching just 2 pieces of information (first & last name), but now I need to make 3+ matches to get the value & the formula is no longer working.
When I check "show calculation steps" in the attached example, I can actually see that all 4 items have successfully matched across the 2 sheets but for some reason the formula is still not pulling in the desired value. Am I wrong to think that I can match more than 2 items w/ this kind of a formula?
I have attached a file with an example of what I need. The data tab show the data has been given to me. I need it in a different format to be able to load it into our system. The Needs tab shows what format I need. Basically, I need to convert this table into a flat file, where there is a record for each "X" value only.
I have been trying to auto update a table by looking up information from a table on top. However, for the top table there are multiple entries in the same column, and my look up only checks the first row and ignores the rest.
My formula at this point is: =IF(ISERROR(INDEX($C$3:$H$33, MATCH("X", I$3:I$33, FALSE), 4))=TRUE, "", IF(INDEX($C$3:$H$33, MATCH("X", I$3:I$33, FALSE), 4)=0, "", INDEX($C$3:$H$33, MATCH("X", I$3:I$33, FALSE), 4))).
If you can take a look at my attachment, this formula is in the cells I40:W40. Eventually, I will want to populate the entire bottom table with the same formula.
I have a worksheet which Sorted in ColA contains Product Id#, ColB contains Vendor, ColC contains Grade# (1 thru 6). Now there may be multiple Vendors (ColB) for same Product # (ColA) but with different Grade# ColC).
I would hope if you can please help me formulate for ColD to pull (list) ALL Vendors for the same Product# (there maybe as many as 6) PROVIDING that the Grade# (ColC) is either 3 or 4.
