# Multiple Vlookups In One Cell

## I have two lists of IDs in 2 columns. I want to sort of do a vlookup of each row in one column to see if it is in the next column, and I want to sum a third column that goes along with column 2 based on whether the same IDs from column one is in the second column. And I want to do all this in one cell. For example: A B C TestA TestZ 10 TestB TestY 20 TestC TestB 8 TestD TestA 7 I need one cell to calculate for me that based on the IDs in column A, column B matches with the IDs TestB and TestA, therefore giving me the sum of 15 (8+7). Doing a vlookup and auto-filling down and then summing up is not an option, so I'm trying to calculate it within one cell if possible. And I can't get sumproduct to work because the matching IDs are not necessarily in the same rows.

ISERROR Formula In Cell That Has Multiple Vlookups?
My problem is when i get a product that isnt in the reference sheets (ie. in cell I19), so when that happens i get "#N/A". I know i can add in ISERROR into my formula, but every time i've tried this it hasn't worked so im missing something...

Vlookups With Multiple Returns
I am trying to write a formula that will give more than 1 return for a vlookup statement.
The info i am looking up is sku code (col a) and expiry date (col b).
There are more than one entry for some skus , but I am only getting returned the first expiry date.

Combine Multiple Vlookups In One Formula
I am using this formula
=IF(SEARCH("pipe",A2),VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!A4:B12,2))
to look up a reference code for "pipe". The reference codes for "pipe" are in column 2 of a table on sheet 2 and are dependant on the dimensions of the pipe given in column 1 of the same table. C2 in the formula is where the dimensions are given. (hope that's clear ).

What I want to do is to extend the above formula to look up column 3 of the table on sheet 2 if, for example, A2 contains "Bend", i.e., =IF(SEARCH("Bend",A2),VLOOKUP(C2,Sheet2!A4:B12,3)).

Combining those two formula using "=if(and " worked for me for the first test, but changing the contents of A2 from "pipe" to "Bend" results in a #Value type error.

I can't use if A2 = "pipe" because extra words could be introduced into A2, e.g., "copper pipe" - therefore the equals would not be appropriate.

Faster Way Of Doing VLOOKUPs On Multiple Items?
Instead of doing a long long formula that is =VLOOKUP(x1,....)+VLOOKUP(x2,.....) is there a faster way of doing it in the one formula?

Slow Macro - Multiple Vlookups To External Sheets
I'm working on a macro which compares values in particular cells across different versions of a sheet. Unfortunately there are quite a lot of values, and my code is running very slowly.

I'm trying to get the data in a grid, with the file version across the top, and down the left the project name. For each file version I need to look up a specific value for every project listed.

At the moment, my macro is creating a seperate formula for each cell which does a vlookup on the project name to the specific external file.

The relevant bit of code is below

At the moment its runnig to slow by several orders of magnitude, Working on a 4 by 10 grid it takes about a minute, and I'm going to need it to be able to handle a 50 by 800 grid.

While the code is running, the CPU is not maxed out, so I'm assuming that its the calls to the file system which are taking all the time.

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Dim ccount As Integer
Dim rcount As Integer
Dim sFilename As String
Dim sPath As String

With ActiveSheet
For ccount = 1 To Range("c1").End(xlToRight).Column - 2

sPath = Left(FileNamesList(ccount), InStr(FileNamesList(ccount), "Pipeline ~") - 1)

sFilename = Right(FileNamesList(ccount), Len(FileNamesList(ccount)) - InStr(FileNamesList(ccount), "Pipeline ~") + 1)

For rcount = 1 To Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row - 2

by SDB.xls]Pipeline'!\$A\$1:\$AO\$300,3,0)

Cells(rcount + 2, ccount + 2) = "=VLOOKUP(""" & Cells(rcount + 2, 1) & """,'" & sPath & "[" & sFilename & "]Pipeline'!\$A\$1:\$AO\$300,3,0)"

Next rcount
Next ccount

Vlookups Recognize A Value
Any recommendations on vlookups being able to recognize a value that does exist within a table? It returns an N/A and the formatting is the same for both references.

Vlookups Retruning #n/a
I have a vlookup for one cell into another sheet however it retruns #n/a(cell A1) the cell adjacent is an if command (Cell B1) it reads if(b1>0,1,0) the only problem is if the cell (A1) will not return zero just #n/a how can I turn the #n/a into a zero? so cell A1 will return a zero and not #n/a

Vlookups In VBA
I have an array (partArray) that contains a number of parts that I need to get values for. The part array is populated (Thanks Norie!) by bring in the contents of a cell and splitting them into array elements. I then run them through a trim loop to remove the white spaces. Up till here thefunction works fine.

I created a partRSL array to hold the matching value for each part ( I know i can use multidimensional arrays but i dont understand them yet and need to deliver a prototype to get some approval from senior mgmt ).

The idea is that as we run through each element of the partArray we will vlookup the corrseponding value and assign it to the appropriate element of the partRSL.
When I use the function below it returns a #value. I think that the element of the partArray i want to lookup is not being used as a string and so the lookup is failing.
As a test to see that this is working i have the function returning the value of element 0 in the partRSL array as it is distinct from the rest. (It should be returning a number (integer)

' Initialise the array
Dim partArray() As String
Dim partRSL() As String
Dim i As Integer

'Populate Array by spliting the comma separated contents of the select cell and assigning each to an array element

'This works fine
For i = LBound(partArray) To UBound(partArray)
partArray(i) = Trim(partArray(i))
Count = Count + 1

Nested IFs And VLOOKUPs
I have a simple Staff Rote which is fed by data on Time Sheet. Currently it is working ok with two definitions;

T : Time
B: Break

If I introduce a 3rd and 4th definition like;
A: Leave
X:non working day
formule will get even more complicated.

Is there a way of simpifying this with a code and introducing the new definitions.

Can I Combine VLOOKUPS In A Formula
Basically i need to type in a formula in sheet 1 under each of the months that will match the account name and location from B1 and C1 to the data range in sheet 2 (Columns B and C) and return whatever value is listed on sheet 2 under column E. My gut tells me I need to use multiple look ups but I've tried this and got numerous errors.

Sum VLOOKUPs (not Cells)
I have a list of cells and for each of them I preform VLOOKUP in a certain table.

Now, I want to sum the values all the VLOOKUPs without viewing the results of each VLOOKUP. In other words, I don't want a cell for each VLOOKUP result. I am only interested in their sum.

Is there a way to do this?

Vlookups And Conditional Formatting.
I would like some conditional formatting to happen when the vlookup is true AND false.

The lookup is looking for a number, if the number is there, i want it to colour the background RED. When it is not there (the vlookup says #N/A) i want to have it coloured YELLOW.

Nested If & Vlookups
I am having trouble using an if statement with a vlookup.

The first calculation i am trying to do is calculate the cost of storage for the product, each product (3 of them) has it's own charging matrix which i have turned into a table on another sheet and therefore want to use the vlookup to return the correct values (meaning that i can change the underlying table and not have to change the formula each time a price change occurs), the sheet calculates the dwell time between entering and leaving, if dwell time is less than 7 days the charge is the number of days * products <7 days rate, if it is >7days then the charge is 7 days at the products lower rate and then the balance at the higher rate. I have a formula that is a longwinded way of calculating it for one size only but would like to add vloopup so that dependent on the units size the storage is calculated.

I have attached a sheet as an example, you will see the data table is quite large and as we consume extra services i plan to use a tick box to indicate use and then add this to a running subtotal again through an if and vlookup.

Nesting If Statements With Vlookups
I know how to do a vlookup and I know how to do an if statement. I also know how to do an IF(ISERROR or IF(ISNA ....

However, I can not get this to work:

=IF(C73<7,VLOOKUP(D73,'Package Mix'!\$G\$39:\$H\$45,2,FALSE),IF(C73<13,VLOOKUP(D73,'Package Mix'!\$G\$6:\$H\$36,2,FALSE),IF(C73>23,VLOOKUP(D73,'Package Mix'!\$G\$48:\$H\$56,2,FALSE),"")))

I can not wrap my head around how to make this work w/ IF(ISNA ....

Also, why must you use < or > .... I actually want the numbers to be 6,12, and 24... However, it seems when I use an equal sign it fails.

Right To Left Vlookups, But Not In Order
I have the following formula that works great when everything is in a straight range:

=IF(B60=1,INDEX(\$A\$3:\$A\$22,MATCH(B59,B3:B22,FALSE),1),"No Skin")

However I am trying to make it work where the data is broken up into multiple sections, for example instead of the
range being a3:a22 it would be a3:a6,a10:a15,a:20:a22 etc....

I tired this but it gave me an #N/A

=IF(B63=1,INDEX((\$A\$6:\$A\$9,\$A\$20:\$A\$23,\$A\$34:\$A\$37,\$A\$48:\$A\$51),MATCH(B62,(B6:B9,B20:B23,B34:B37,B48:B51),FALSE),1),"No Skin")

Vlookups And Editing Those Fields
I am trying to create an asset management database using excel, and would like to be able to add custom notes to each entry (index) so as time goes on, I can refresh my memory what we have done with a particular item. I have attached the current file I have created.

Essentially, when I use the GREEN drop down menu in the top right, I want it to display the notes/comments that I enter in the rightmost column of the data, as the attached file illustrates.

However, I want to be able to hide that rightmost column and be able to edit the data from the new area (white space) it is being displayed in, however as I have it set up right now, if I edit the cell, it edits the forumla and poof goes all the comments and the formula becomes messed up.

Vlookups From Combo Boxes
I am trying to use a vlookup from input from a combobox. In other words, if a user selects "Los Angeles" from a combo-box titled "city", I want the state of California to appear in a cell labeled "State" (A3).

Vlookups When 2 Values Not Find The Result
I need help using the vlookup formula when there is 2 values that needs to be looked up to find the result.

for ex:

VBA - IF Functions And VLookups Assistance
The will eventually end in a series of pivottables. I am currently at the step where I need to add vlookups. This is for an inventory management report that averages 20,000 rows and 20 columns of data. I add a few columns (using vlookups) to increase visibilty to the operations dept.

The first thing I need help with is creating the VBA language for using a vlookup table from another workbook that pastes the vlookup formula every cell to the bottom of the data

Then I need to utilize an IF formula for one column that says IF c2 is blank use vlookup-formula1, and IF it is not blank use vlookup-formula2, and then paste at every cell all the way down.

I hope someone can help, and I hope I didn't write too much to where everyone will skip pver this thread.

I am currently to this state, and ready to continue.

Can Vlookups Cope With Spelling Errors
I have a number of Vlooks set up to reference cost information set up against Names in various workbooks.

The problem is wherever a name is mis-spelt then the lookup fails to match the values.

Vlookups For Searching Specific Worksheets
I'm building a spreadsheet which has a formula which performs a vlookup on a sheet. Now I want to leave the vlookup formula so that you don't need to change it. What I want to achieve is that the vlookup table array references a cell in the current worksheet which is a name of another worksheet.

What this will enable me to do is to keep the forumla unchanged by by changing the cell with the worksheet name in it points the vlookup to a different sheet. This is because I have multiple sheets which have similar data on and I don;t want to edit the forumla to point to the different sheets.

Ifs , Vlookups ... Limited... Match / Index
I've started looking at a piece of work for ordering and bringing back matching data...

I just know i'm going to run out of If's only too soon...

Ive seen basic index and match formula, and use them now and again, but... do you "stack" them in the same way ... and would they assist with the limiting If's ?

I fear i will have around 20 "SPSA" type references ... and will need to look at diff columns depending on which is relevant... be very grateful for your guidance on the best way to approach this.. as i always end up with a messy workaround.. Thanks Chuf

=IF(LEFT(\$H10,4)="SPSA",VLOOKUP(J10,LookupLists!\$L:\$N,3,FALSE),IF(LEFT(\$H10,4)="SPSB",VLOOKUP(J10,LookupLists!\$P:\$R,3,FALSE),VLOOKUP(J10,LookupLists!\$D:\$E,2,FALSE)))

I have three named ranges that I need to do lookups for First I need the formula to do a look up at the HUMANALOOKUP range and then if a value is not found go to LABLOOKUP and then if not found go to CHCSLOOKUP and if not found return a blank. the column layout of each worksheet is the same so the column index number same throughout the formula.

Summarizing Data With Vlookups Or Sumproduct Formulas
I've got a tab with 32K+ lines of data in six columns. I need to be able to summarize it in a table based on two criteria (e.g. Region, Line of Business). I am currently using 16 sumproduct formulas (=sumproduct((type=a5)*(reg=a4)*revenue)) where type is the line of business and reg is the region column, and 8 vlookups per region. Each tab will have about 8 regions and I'll have 4 tabs. As you can tell, this spreadsheet will quickly get out of hand in terms of calculating speed. I can't really use a pivot table because of: 1) formatting constraints 2) the vlookups refer to a separate tab than the main data dump. What alternatives do I have other than array formulas to get the data in a nice little summary form? The formulas/presentation aren't very complicated, but I have yet to come up with a good alternative to the above.

Replace Fixed Reference In 0000's Of VLOOKUPs
Is there a more efficient way that I can swap out an ending fixed reference value in thousands of vlookup formulas across many pages within the same workbook? For example, let's say one of my vlookup formulas is: =vlookup(A2,'Apples!'\$A\$2:\$W\$47,7,false)

and I want to change the range to 'Apples!'\$A\$2:\$W\$200, across several variations of the same formula, across several pages within the same workbook. Can this be done easily without tackling each sheet separately using copy, paste special, formula?

File Size... Vlookups Resulting In 90MB File
I have created a monster Excel file that contains loads of vlookups and is 95MB and extremely slow.

I guess that vlookup creates tables in the background, hence the file size. Does anyone have any ideas on how to decrease the file size while keep the vlookup functionality?

Paste Multiple Cell Values From Multiple Workooks Into One Workbook
I’ve got a folder on drive C named “Customer Sheets”. In this folder at any time there could be over 500 individual customer sheets. i also have a "Summary Workbook" on drive C

What I need is a macro in my "Summary Workbook" that copies cells (“B3, B6, B12, B13, G5, G6”) form every customer sheet in my “Customers Sheets” folder and paste it into my “Summary Workbook” onto sheet2, every customer in a new row.

The “Summary Workbook” should run this macro every time it is opened or on my command so that the database is continually refreshed when a new customer sheet is made.

Match Value Of 1 Cell To Multiple Cells And Give Multiple Values
Sheet 2 is the problem.

I need to match cells e3:h3 whenver the dates change in in cells c5:c9 and then put there result of cells b5:b9 into the corresponding cells of e5:h9.

Basically what I'm saying is that I want to keep a track of all previous pay amounts from each pay period. So when the next period changes the date it also copies the new pay amount to the corresponding date of the previous pay section.

I have included a sample.

Multiple Sum If A Cell Value Equal Another Cell
I'm doing a spreadsheet where there is ten cells or top ten positions. Where there is one sheet for where the ten values and another sheet with cells that might or might not match the other sheet. For instance.

If any cell A1 on sheet 1 matches cell A1 on sheet 2 Then give cell A15 the value of 10. The If cell A2 on sheet 1 matches A2 on sheet 2 Then add another 10 giving A15 a total of 20. And so on up To A10. Then If it doesn 't match exactly lets say If cell A4 on sheet 1 match cell A2 the Minis 4 from 2 giving you 2 Then minis 2 from 10 giving 8 While still totaling In cell A15, which would equal 18 now.

Combining Multiple Cells In Multiple Worksheets In Multiple Workbooks Into One Table
I'm currently doing a survey using an excel workbook that contains multiple questions across multiple worksheets using radio buttons linked to certain cells.

I have around 400 workbooks coming back to me, so what i want to do is take specific values from across many worksheets within each workbook and combine them into a large master table in a seperate workbook.

I've tried using VBA, but not being very proficient at it i've hit a brick wall with that, so i'm hoping that there is an easier way to do it than what i'm currently pursuing.

Multiple Values For A Cell
I am working on a spreadsheet that has three columns.

A - Product (stays the same no changes)
B - Amount Ordered (varies)
C - Purchased By (varies)

My goal is to set up a formula that shows a summary of how much a person has ordered. Sounds straight forward, but the problem I am running into is when 2 or more people are making a combined purchase. In those cases the cost will be divided equally between the buyers. Is there a way to achieve this goal?

I included a sample of the spreadsheet. Typically this is about a 300-400 line report.

Check If Cell Is Multiple Of Another
I want to check if the value of a cell is the multiple of another

for example cell A1 is 6
and cell B1 is 2

This is valid because 2*3=6 but if cell A1 was 5 then it should display that its not valid!

Multiple Validations To A Cell
I have an excel spread sheet, Col I is a Date, Col K is a Date, Col P is a date and Col T is a text(with list validation) I have validation that if if T = "As is" and P <> I or K (which ever one has a value) then Error. Add Type:=xlValidateCustom, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:=xlBetween, Formula1:="=IF(T2= ""Accept as is"",(IF(P2=(IF(K2<>"""",K2,I2)),TRUE, FALSE)), TRUE)"

But if the user changes T to some other value then it is ok to change P, But they could put any value in that field. I Need to validate that P is a DATE also
I was trying to do a validation Greater than > 01/01/2007 but I can not do multiple validations on the same cell. How can I validate P is a date also

Programming Multiple Conditions In Cell
Attached is my worksheet. I need to program column C to adjust the value in column A according to the rules set in table J2:K17, but ONLY if the value in column B = mens. If the value in B does not equal mens, then leave the C cell blank. I've manually populated column C to show the end result that I'm looking for.

I tried a simple =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Small",A2)),"S",""), etc., but I can't figure out how to incorporate the additional condition that would let the cell return a value ONLY when a condition in B is also met.

NBVC helped me with a similar request previously, but with that formula, if the condition wasn't met, the cell returned "#N/A" instead of being blank.

Autofilter: Multiple Entries In One Cell
I'm making a database for people to easily find their documents at work. In some cells there are multiple entries because the document could be within two catagories, eg. memo and report. Is it possible to somehow list these multiple entries within the cell so that the autofilter will recognise them as seperate entries and find that document whether you filter for memo or report? If not, can you get the filter to search more than one column for the same result and show all entries that are, say, a memo, even if it says so in different columns? I want it to be as simple as possible for the user so that they can select what they want from the drop-down menu and not

Various Cell Values In Multiple Cells
I am running a 8 ball pool league and I am using a excel file to keep all the results in. We have over 200 people so the list is quite long.

Here is my problem. I have a list of 200 player with columns from left to right stating which days they are playing on. In each of these columns I note if that player won 3-0, 2-1 or lost 0-3, 1-2. The 3 and 0 or 2 and 1 are in separate columns. I am trying to write a formula to look for the players who have won 3-0 the most times to show how consistently well he has played.

I have tried =COUNTIF(A2:Z2,3) and this works fine, but the problem is, is that it counts the 0-3 that he lost as well, I only want his 3-0 win. His win score is always the first column so if he wins 3-0 I want it to count all the 3-0 wins and leave the 2-1 win or the 0-3 and 1-2 losses.

If Then Multiple Arguments For Single Cell
IM getting a too many arguments error on this ...

Cell Value Based On Multiple Conditions
I need to create a macro that will calculate a value based on the contents of multiple cells. Looking at the example attached, if columns A and/or B (employee ID and name) are empty, then allowable OT (G) should be 0. If either have data, then if Stage (F) is CAN, G should be 20. If Stage is FAS or FAR, G should be 10.

I'm not very savvy with IF statements, which is how I imagine this can be done, and I don't know if this would be easier to do as a macro or as a formula within G. Since the contents of the of the cells will be changing on a weekly basis, I'd prefer the formula to only be there if there is content on the line, so we don't have nulls showing.

Multiple Output From Any Cell Input
Im working a spredsheet for my work, it is a database of qualifications for certain employees. There are about a hundred different qualifications and about 20 different employees. And some of the qualifications overlap. I would like to input a certain date in one of the cells, and have it copy into some of the other cells where the quals overlap. But i would like to input that date into any of the cells that overlap, not just one.
