# Nesting VLOOKUP In IF/vice Versa & Pivot Table

Jun 3, 2009

I've attached a sample/equivalent workbook of what I'm working on which will hopefully make it clear(er).

>There are two worksheets/month. Both worksheets (represent 2 different categories) are structured the same, two columns: model code & \$ amount. >The model codes change (in # and actual model), between categories and month.

>The data for each month rolls up into a year-to-date summary worksheet, with 4 columns: Model (includes all models YTD, each only listed once), category1 YTD, category 2 YTD, & Total YTD).

Previously this had been done by manually entering any new models for the month into the rows in the YTD summary sheet. And the totals for each model (highlighted in yellow in the YTD tab in my sample) were just done by an adding formula, with the new month's data manually entered into each individual cell at the end of the formula (...+X). I know there's a much better way to do/automate this! (there are a lot more models than I've put in my sample aka it's way too time consuming manually).

My problem is twofold:
1. (main issue) I have been trying to do this using various IF statements nested in VLOOKUPS, and vice versa, but the issue that arises is for models in the summary sheet that don't exist in a given (month's) table. I want the value for those models (for that specific month) to be zero, but I cannot figure out how to get that to work in my formula. The only piece that works for me thus far is =VLOOKUP(A3, 'Jan Cat1'!A2:B18, 2, FALSE), but I've tried nesting it in IF statements, nesting IF statements in it, using ANDs & ORs, no avail.

I'm not even sure any of these options are the best ways to reach what I'm ultimately trying to do. A pivot table may be better? But I will need to keep/preserve the summary sheet for each month (so there cannot just be one big updated master pivot table).

2. If I could find a way to automate/refresh & update the row of models each month, it would be the sprinkles on the icing of this cupcake.

## Updating One Cell Changes Another Or Vice Versa

Dec 11, 2006

Let's say that row a,b,and c contain a list price, discount %, and discount price respectively. I want to be able to change either the discount % and it will recalculate the discount price or change the discount price and it will recalculate the discount %. So to put it more clearly:

cells in row A: Contain the List (undiscounted) price. This will never change.

cells in row B: Will be a discount %. It is equal to:
(list price - discounted price)/list price. needs to be recalculated if discounted price changes. Also, it should only contain data if the cell in Row A - list price - contains data.

All cells in row C: Will be a discount price. It is equal to:
(1-discount %)*list price. needs to be recalculated if discount % changes. Also, it should only contain data if the cell in Row A - list price - contains data.

## Linking Cells So That Changing One Changes Another And Vice Versa

Apr 9, 2014

I am looking for a code that will be able to link cells H9:I14 on Sheet 1 with cells H7:I12 on Sheet 2 of the same workbook so that if I change H9 on Sheet 1, H7 on Sheet 2 will show the same figure and alternatively if I change H7 on Sheet 2, H9 on Sheet 1 will show the same figure. If this could work for all 12 of the cells and their equivalents respectively.

Furthermore, If a blank column or row is inserted, hence the cells move, the link will remain useable.

I have plenty of different columns throughout the workbook where this needs to be done so I imagine I can just adjust the code as necessary to incorporate different cells.

## Separate A Text Into A Number Or Vice Versa

Feb 12, 2007

How can I separate a text or a number. For example in column A I have a data written like these 123text, text1234, 123text123, 123-text and in column B I only want to put the text or the number only so it means that if I have in column A "123text" in column B I only want to put "text" word. Another information is that the number is not always 3 number and the text is not always 4 character.

## Positive To Negative Number And Vice Versa

Aug 22, 2008

I need to have a formula or code so that when a number is entered in cell E12 or F12 or L12, or M12 would treat a positive number as a negative and a negative number entered would be a positive in that respective cell.

## Turn Column Letters To Numbers And Vice Versa?

Jun 16, 2014

How do i turn column letters to numbers and vice versa

take y values from column and take x values from row

I have 'resolved' values in column A1:A10
I have 'received' values in row B11:K11

I need to fill out a table using the tables axis values stored in the column and row above.

## Convert Calculation Result To Negative If Positive & Vice Versa

Jul 1, 2008

I have a column of numbers such as

1001150
1001124
2224445

I need add a period in the following locations

10011.50
10011.24
22244.45

I figured this out using a format rule of

#.##

I then need to make the numbers negative so I did

-#.##

but this doesn't "stick", if I filter the numbers by negative numbers, none of them show up. So how do I make the formatting actually become the numbers? Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;After doing some more research I found the "precision as displayed" option. I can't find this option on Excel 2007, but I moved the files into 2003 and the option doesn't do anything. It is not permanently changing the column that I have added the formatting too.

## Line Chart To XY Chart And Vice-Versa

Feb 5, 2010

Attached is the sample data worksheet. Chart 1 is XY type chart using Seconds (2nd column of sample sheet as x-axis from 42510 to 42530). How do I change it to Line chart using Time (1st column of sample sheet as the X-axis) retaining same data from 42510 to 42530 on both primary and secondary axis?. And how do I again change it back to XY chart?

## VLOOKUP Vs Pivot Table

Jan 29, 2010

In creating a new sheet to allow for multiple piece of information to auto fill; I am struggling on a small VLOOKUP issue. On my parts information page (where the info is being pulled from) I want to be able to separate out data based on the manufacturer while still leaving enough open/blank space for future additions. My issue is that with VLOOKUP every time I add to the current list(s) of data, I have to re-sort to alphabetic in order for it to work right. This means that the separation I am looking for disappears for the most part. Maybe I am doing something wrong or I am missing something, which if so, do Pivot Tables work better for this situation?

How my sheet is working is the user can pick from a list of items, click a button and the item is then transferred to another page, when it transfers the corresponding cells on the transferee page will auto fill with the rest of the info in those cells, thereby displaying not only the item picked but all of the realative data with it.

## Pivot Table Using Data From Vlookup

Feb 5, 2014

I have a Takeoff sheet where an estimator enters a part# and the rest of the data is entered on the Takeoff sheet by using Vlookup to retrieve the information from the Products Sheet (there are about 12,000 products with 12 fields for each product). I need to then take all of the parts on the Takeoff sheet, and summarize the data, which is what Pivot Tables are for. The thing I cannot find out, is if this can be done. The machine keeps running out of memory (it has 32g, so I question that, and I tested with a 500 row sheet and got the same result), so I can never get the Pivot Table to actually create, or get a useful error message. Searching the web and this forum tells lots about Vlookup IN a Pivot Table, but not creating a Pivot Table from Vlookup data. I copied the data values to a new sheet to test the data and the Pivot created fine, so I believe the data itself is properly formatted.

## VLOOKUP, IF Condition And Pivot Table

Feb 22, 2009

Have following table:
No. Be Country
1 D GB
1 C DE
2 B DE
2 A GB

I want to present it as follow:
GB DE
1 D C
2 A B

Did not solve it with a pivot table. Not either with VLOOKUP combined with IF. I am thinking in the direction: If 1 in the first column and GB in the third, return the D. But I am not getting it right.

## VLOOKUP Against Pivot Table In Macro

Sep 19, 2007

one part requires a pivot table to split two seperate pieces of data. the macro is running fine until this point when i get the AddFields method error (run time 1004). the Visual Basic error is as follows:

ColumnFields:="Int.Ext"
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Lab Hrs")
.Orientation = xlDataField
.Caption = "Sum of Lab Hrs"
.Function = xlSum
End With
ActiveWorkbook.ShowPivotTableFieldList = False
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-6
Sheets("FINISHED WORKSHEET").Select
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll ToRight:=4
Range("AA1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Int Lab Hrs"
Range("AA2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-25],Sheet1!C[-26]:C[-24],3,FALSE)"
Range("AA2").Select

is this basically a write off or can anything be salvaged to make it run correctly. the pivot table will always use the same columns etc. every month it is run.

## Pivot Table And VLookup To Make Graph?

Feb 25, 2012

This is how my pivot table would look like to start. Over time I would refresh and more things will be added. I want to make a Pie chart, and everytime I refresh the Pivot I want the Pie to get updated.

[IMG][/IMG]

BUT I want to do this on a separate tab. So basically I want to do a Vlookup of sorts. Where all the Fruit items are pulled and automatically updated when I refresh the Pivot. Then I would do the same for Veggies.

## Vlookup N A Pivot Table And Keep Getting An Error Message

Feb 15, 2008

I am trying to to a vlookup on a pivot table and keep getting an error message (The error states that The formula you have entered contains a error) and excel will highlight the 0 in my formula. The formula is

=IF(ISERR(VLOOKUP(G17,'Curr Month'!\$G:\$H,2,FALSE)=TRUE,0,VLOOKUP(G17,'Curr Month'!\$G:\$H,2,FALSE)

## Nesting Multiple Vlookup Conditions In An If Funciton

Sep 24, 2009

I am not sure if the VLookup or the If function will be the best way to perform this tast but I think it is they way I would want to go.

I have attached a sample workbook of what I am working with.

On sheet 1 I named the table array Ear_Tag.

This is information that is provided to me from the farmers.

Note that there are sometimes more then 1 pig with the same tag number. The only way to tell them apart is by the Test Date.

On Sheet 2
Is where I record the test results.

I dont want to have to look up each pig after each test and fill in the rest of the cells manually. I would like to have a look up of the ear tag and the test date to find the correct pig. Then each of the cells will fill in the correct information.

## Vlookup (name Range Change Dynamically When The Pivot Table Is Refreshed)

Oct 26, 2009

I have the following vlookup formula in my spreadsheet.

IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(\$A2,'Purchase Order Pivot Table'!\$5:\$500,67,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(\$A2,'Purchase Order Pivot Table'!\$5:\$500,67,FALSE))

It works perfectly for my current requirement, but it looks at data in a pivot table which is created from a dataset. If I name the columns in the pivot table so instead of looking at column 67 it looks at a name range will this name range change dynamically when the pivot table is refreshed? If not how can I get it to.

## Combined VLOOKUP With A Date Range SUMIF From Pivot Table Data?

Feb 13, 2014

I have a report I am attempting to populate with data from a pivot table in another worksheet. Column A holds all the reference numbers (primary key), column B contains various start dates, and I want column C to contain all the payments made since the start date for each reference number.

The source data is a pivot table with Row = Reference number, column = transaction date, values = transaction amounts. This is an extremely large table, as I'm processing data from almost 1,200 cases, which each have around 20 payments spread over the last year, on completely random days. What I would like to do is build a formula in my report which looks up the records for the reference number from column A, and then adds up all the payments which have been made after the date in column B (and ignore any payments in the table which are before that date).

And to make things more complicated:

if an error is generated, it needs to return as 0, not #N/AThe report has the dates in UK format dd/mm/yyyy, but the pivot table has the dates in SQL format: yyyy-mm-ddThe pivot table is connected to a SQL database via ODBC and has to refresh every time it is opened.

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,'Transactions'!\$A\$2:\$B\$1194,2,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(A2,'Transactions'!\$A\$2:\$B\$1194,2,FALSE))

## Excel 2010 :: Pivot Table Reference Is Not Valid When Moving Data And Pivot Table Together?

Mar 19, 2013

On a worksheet, I created:

- a list of data
- a pivottable based on these data

When moving this worksheet this worksheet to another workbook, the pivot table can't refresh anymore. This throws an error message "Reference is not valid". To work around this problem I need to adapt the datasource. The same occurs if the list and the pivot table are on separate sheet, with the added strange behaviour that, when data an PT are split, it is not possible to move both sheet together.

This would not be a big issue if my problem had to be solved manually. The real problem is that I need to move the sheets from a C# program.

## Create Pivot Table: Cannot Open Pivot Table Source File

Jan 4, 2010

I'm trying to write a macro that will create a pivot table, and am getting an Error code 1004: Cannot Open Pivot Table Source File "Sheetname". My code is below. I've tried to note what each section does, and it all seems to work well except for the Pivot Table creation.

## VBA - Adjust Pivot Table Included Fields To Match Another Pivot Table

Mar 14, 2013

I have a worksheet with two pivot tables, one of which is visible to the user. Ideally, the user should be able to change the "Row Label" field settings of the visible pivot table and then press an "update button" that then adds the same field to the second pivot table.

Ideally, the ordering of the fields should also be made similar between the two tables, though this is of less priority.

I imagine it would be something in the style of:

"If number of Pivot1 active row label fields = X then
end if"

## Pivot Table Query: Make A Pivot Table To Summarise The Data

Jan 22, 2007

attached is a spreadsheet 6 people in my area use daily(ive copied and pasted the sheet in question to a new worksheet, as the file was too big). Ive been trying for about 3 days now to make a pivot table to summarise this data.

## VLookup To Pivot Table Using Match Function - Returns Error If Can't Find Match Value

Mar 11, 2014

I am having some trouble getting a formula to work. I am building a report that pulls figures from a pivot table in another workbook. I am using a vlookup with match function to get the column index to find the relevant data I want. Where I need to add two columns together I am using sum, with the vlookup & match formulas nested in them e.g.:

=SUM(VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("FAID",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("COMM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("BPCM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("COMD",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE))

Where:
F13 = Employee number
Column C on the pivot 156 workbook is where the employee number is based.
The Match formula is then getting the column index from the column headings of the pivot table ie. "FAID"

This in itself works fine, as long as it finds a match in the column headings. This is where i get the error as in the above function "COMD" is not in the pivot table. However I need to keep it included as it may appear on a future pivot table. Is there a way of getting the sum function to complete even though later in the formula it can't complete the vlookup? So it will ignore it, or assume the value is zero if it can't find it? The formula probably needs to do this for all the vlookups as some headings may drop off in future pivot tables.

## Change The Date On One Of The Pivot Table And Pivot Table Match

Apr 29, 2006

I have data that develops 3 to 4 pivot table each day. I would like to know if there is a way to change the date on one of the pivot table and have the other pivot tables date change to match with the first pivot table. At this time I am going to all 3 or 4 pivot table to select the correct date. The date is in the page position of the pivot table. I have attached a small sample of the data and the pivot tables.

## Nesting Index / Match Function Within Vlookup Function?

Dec 3, 2013

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.

[Code]....

This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. \$E3 is the date required, \$BA\$1:\$DN\$1 is the range the dates are entered in
Match: Lookup value = \$E3
Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$BA\$1:\$DN\$1
match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. \$A\$4 is the department name, \$B\$434:\$B\$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = \$A\$4
Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$B\$434:\$B\$452
match type = 0

Index: array = \$BA\$434:\$DN\$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

## Adjust Column Label Selection Multiple Pivot Tables Based On One Pivot Table

Aug 16, 2013

I have a pivot table in the first sheet which includes the field "Date" as a column label.

In the remaining sheets, except for one, there are pivot tables based on the same underlying dataset which also include the field "Date" as a column label.

I would like to adjust the selection (i.e., exclude some dates) from the column label in the first sheet and see if it is possible to make the same adjustments automatically to the pivot tables in the remaining sheets as well.

note that the field "Date" is used as a Column label, i.e., it is not a Report filter.

## Months To Be Sorted In Ascending Order In Pivot Table, Want To Use Multiple Colors In Pivot Charts

Sep 18, 2008

My input data for Pivot table has a column named "Month". The month values are like April 07, April 08, Nov07 in random order for period between Jan 07 to Aug 08.

When I create a pivot Table, this column is sorted alphabetically (April 07 is followed by April 08) but I need it to be sorted in the ascending order with respect to month (April 07 is followed by May 07).

I further use this data to plot a Pivot Chart. There is another issue here. I want to use separate colors for each series. I do not know how to achieve above 2 things.

## How To Use Pivot Cache To Create Another Pivot Table Instance On A Different Worksheet

Jul 7, 2014

I have a pivot table that I created and now I want to use the same pivot cache to create another pivot table instance on a different worksheet. how can I do that? My first worksheet gets saved as "OO By buyer" and now I want to create a new worksheet and drop the next pivot there.

## Pivot Table - Loop Through Pivot Item Children?

Jan 7, 2014

I'm not grasping the Pivot Table correctly. I've written code to create a sum of values based on a worksheet. Specifically:LocationIDDeptSum of Hours Worked. Location, ID and Dept are rows. This effectively provides the aggregate values that I need based on the row groupings.Here's where this is falling apart. I need to create a new worksheet based on these values. I assumed the three row values - Location, ID and dept - would be in a hierarchy. It's possible they are, I just can't figure out the object model.

When I loop through the PivotItems collection of the PivotFields("Location"), I get what I need. However, I'm unable to determine how to loop through the child values (just for that location). PivotFields("ID") returns all IDs. I can't figure out how to return only the child entries for each pivot item. GetPivotData hasn't been very useful for this. As far as I can tell, GetPivotData, while its return type is listed as Range, throws an error when more than one cell is returned. Worst case, I suppose I can just parse the data in the DataBodyRange of the pivot table - maybe not, I haven't tried that. I'm hoping there's a way to iterate through these collections, but based on what I've seen from Google searches, there may not be. Does my pivot table need to be rearranged? I suppose I could also just dump this data into a data table

## Excel 2010 :: (VBA) Pivot Table And Pivot Cache?

Mar 13, 2014

My macro is designed to look at a summary source tab and create a new tab for each unique project number. It then creates a pivot table from five different source detail tabs and filters on the project number. If a tab already exists it selects the tab and moves on to the next project number. There are six pivot tables created for every project.

New data is added each month to the source tabs and I have a macro to delete all pivot tables and the macro will recreate the pivot tables when ran again.

Issue: Running out of resources At work I'm limited to the use of Excel 2010 (32bit) so I'm restricted on 2GB of memory. At home I ran the file successfully (64bit) and it was around 3GB of memory.

My macro creates a new pivot cache for every pivot table where as I'm trying to only use 6 pivot caches in my coding. I kill it half way through and it's around 100+ caches causing unnecessary usage of memory.

Fix / Solution:

Correctly code the vba to only create six caches and code the rest the pivot tables to use that cache.The only difference in the Pivot Tables is that itâ€™s sorted on the Project Number.

Code:

Dim VBAPPPC As PivotCache
Dim VBAAPPC As PivotCache
Dim VBAPRPC As PivotCache
Dim VBAEXPC As PivotCache
Dim VBAMJPC As PivotCache
Dim VBAIVPC As PivotCache
Dim VBAPT As PivotTable

[code]...

## Pivot Table Name And Pivot Field Properties Not Getting Recorded?

Apr 20, 2014

1. I am trying to record a macro where I select a Pivot Table. But in the recorded macro "Pivot Table name" is not recorded neither the Pivot Field Property only the Range name is recorded. But on other systems (workstations) these details get recorded. Does this have something to do with excel settings?

2. I uploaded a macro enabled excel file on my company's "sharepoint" the drop down boxes present in the file get populated via a macro in "ThisWorkbook" page but sometimes these drop down boxes don't show any values. What can be the reason for this? Can't share the file because of data security policy of my organization.
