# Reconciliation Formula(s) - VLookup Two Cells And Return TRUE / FALSE For Match?

Mar 26, 2014

I'm trying to create a rec report, ideally on one page, for multiple criteria. The situation is we get a report on our trade positions (investment stuff) from an outside service we use. We also have a report internally from what we've booked. We're looking to tie out are basic things like price, original par, revised par, trade date, counter-party banks, etc. I've consolidated data from both sources on one page (DATA) where all data points are lined up (say EXTERNAL is from rows 1-500, and INTERNAL is 510-1010). Now I need to create a front page showing the result of each tie-out. The lookup value will be a combination of the fund name + trade ticket number which would almost guarantee a unique ID (fund name XYZ, ticket number 12345 = XYZ12345)

Current tabs on spreadsheet: DATA, EXTERNAL, INTERNAL. I need to add a REC page

Question: What formula can I use to check on each and return TRUE/FALSE? The goal is to have about 8 columns on the REC, each for one of the tie-outs (let's use price as an example.). I know the basic VLOOKUP to return one value, but it appears in this case I will need VLOOKUP to check two matching values based on unique ID XZY12345, compare the price, and return TRUE if they match, FALSE if they don't

Here's something I saw from one of our spreadsheets that I think does the same to confirm counter-party, though I have no idea how to read this lengthy formula.

=EXACT(VLOOKUP(IF(Q2="COMPANY",R2,Q2),FUNDS!\$M\$1:\$N\$400,2,FALSE),
INDEX(PENDING!\$G\$4:\$G\$3218,MATCH(CP!C2,PENDING!\$N\$4:\$N\$3218,0)))

## Match And Return A True False Value

Sep 25, 2009

I have a master spreadsheet which shows agreeed rentals for vehicles, on the sample this is the "OCS" tab. I receive a spreadsheet which contains the actual rental charged, in my example this is the tab "Invoice" in my example the VRN are in the same order on both sheets, in reality the invoice spreadsheet is not in the same order as my OCS sheet. My task is to match the VRN field in the invoice sheet to the VRN in the OCS sheet, then look at the amounts and if they match then return "true" if they don't return "false

## Using VLookUp To Return True Or False?

Feb 21, 2014

If a value in cell A1 on Sheet Report is found in Range B2:B10 on Sheet Hierarchy Then return True Else False

I have the following so far:

[Code] .....

I want Match to be either True or False. Also, is there a way to know the cell the value was found in if True? How do I make this work?

## Return True/False If Cell Contains Formula

Apr 7, 2009

Is there a formula or VB code like the =TYPE() function that will return whether a cell contains a FORMULA? Here's the issue:

I'm writing a macro to update 10,000 sheets. Each sheet has a column that I'm updating with a new formula. Some of these formulas have been previously overwritten with a random number that would delete the formula from the cell. I have to leave the overwritten values where there is no formula, and replace the values of the formulas where they are still intact. I assume that if I can identify whether there is a formula in the cell or not, I can choose that cell to skip or update.

## Formula To Return True/False If A Row Has 6 Contiguous 0 Values

Sep 25, 2009

I have number data in columns F through AK. In column AL I want a formula that will look in columns F through AK from the left to right. Once it identifies a positive value I want the formula to identify if after that positive number there are any occurances where there are 6 0's in a row (anywhere up until column AK). The formula can return a True or False. I want to drag the formula down across many rows of data. If the entire row contains 0's, I do not want it identified as a TRUE

## Conditional Or VLookup (Gives True Or False If Text In A Cell Matches Any Cells In A Range)?

Jan 14, 2009

I need to create a formula that will give me True or False if text in a cell matches any cells in a range.

For example:

Column A and B have text:

Account
Date
Name
Species

Column C has other and sometimes matching text:
Name
Deal

What formula would I use to find out if all cells in Columns A and B are represented in Column C?

## Count Of TRUE & FALSE And Assign 1 To True And Yes And 0 To False And No When I Total The Rows

Nov 15, 2006

I am trying to Sum lines of info with "True or False" and "Yes and No". I would like to assign 1 to True and Yes and 0 to False and No when I total the rows. Never tried this in Excel, on Lotus and the formula does not work. I can find and replace, but I would like to be able to use a formula.

## Make OR() Return 0 Or 1 Instead Of True And False

Sep 11, 2009

Hi. Is there a way to make OR() return 0 or 1 instead of true and false?

Or to convert true to 1 and false to 0?

## True Or False Return For Each Group

Sep 4, 2007

I have no idea where to begin on this problem.

Group Name / Data
A / .01
A / .02
A / -.02
B / .05
B /-.01
C /.02
C /-.03

I need one true or false return for each group if the absolute value of the differences in any combination of a group's data is greater than or equal to .05.

Expected Result

Group A False
Group B True
Group C True

## Return True If Value Exist - False If Doesn't

Jan 23, 2008

I have two price lists in workbook. One containing "normal" price list, other containing "action" prices.

I want to search for a product name code from column A in "normal" price list in column A of "action" list, and if it is found to show it somehow in any column in "normal" price list sheet.

This way I know that there is action price attached to that product and that I have to search for the price in "action" sheet.

## Check Four Conditions Return TRUE Or FALSE

Nov 16, 2009

I have several rows with numbers that is either 0, a balance or a text like n/a. I need a formula that return true if all are 0 or contain n/a. If there is one balance shall it be false. Any suggestion? See example:

## Function Design Return True Or False

Jul 27, 2009

I'm trying to determine if a rangeName is defined so that I can delete it without a programming error. I've used the idea that if I try to goto a non-existant rangeName, I'll get an error. I've tried to design a function that will return true or false if the rangeName is defined on the basis of that idea. Can you take a look at the code and see where I went wrong?

## Return True If Value Exist. False If It Doesn't

Jan 23, 2008

I have two price lists in workbook. One containing "normal" price list, other containing "action" prices.

I want to search for a product name code from column A in "normal" price list in column A of "action" list, and if it is found to show it somehow in any column in "normal" price list sheet.

This way I know that there is action price attached to that product and that I have to search for the price in "action" sheet.

## Get AND Function To Return Back Results Other Than True And False

Mar 5, 2014

Here's my formula:

=AND([@[Tenure (Yrs)]]>=5,[@[2016 Sales]]>=150000)

(Where should I enter high and low? Do I need an if formula nested into it?)

I'm trying to get it to read if the customer reads both criteria which is they've been there 5 years and over 150000 sales =
High if not Low.

## Check Font Color And Return A True Or False

Nov 24, 2008

I am looking for a formula to return either True/False in Column J if the font color in Column H is Red.

Is there a formula that can do this?

## IF Function Return Specific Criteria For True And Then For False

Mar 5, 2008

I need to check one column to see if it is less than another one
If it is I need to have the IF function return specific criteria for true and then for false but then I also need it to rely on the results of another question from another column if the result of the first query is less than the figure in another column again I need to return specific criteria for tur and then for false
An AND function requires both to be true but when one isnt what do I write?

## Return A True/false Based On A Cell Containing A String Vs A Value

Jul 20, 2006

how return a true/false based on a cell containing a string (text) vs a value?

I have a column where most cells are blank, some contain text, and others contain dates. I would like to select and manipulate only the ones that contain dates (or values).

## Return Value To Cell Based On CheckBox TRUE/FALSE

Mar 12, 2008

I would like to create a qestionairre with checkboxes used to answer the question "Do you need____" (Check if yes). On the following workbook I would like a list of all items needed, and a list of items not needed on yet another workbook.

Is there a way to create these lists without having blanks for values that are not true? (and because Im sure there is HOW?)

## Conditional Formatting Based On True Or False Value Returned In Vlookup

Apr 21, 2014

i have a formula in a cell:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$D11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(\$D11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE))&IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$E11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(\$E11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE))

The first half of the vlookup searches for data and returns a dollar amount if true The second half of the vlookup searches for another data set and returns a dollar amount if true...

Both amounts could be the same, so I cant use a formula based on numeric value

the conditional format must determine which vlookup is returning the result

in other words I'd like to conditionally format (grey fill) if the first vlookup returns data and conditionally format (blue fill) if the second vlookup returns data

Probably have to "use a formula to determine which cells to format"

## Return True / False If Specific Criteria Met Between Worksheets In Same Workbbok

May 28, 2014

First one: The thought process is that inbound inventory data is logged on one sheet; outbound inventory data logged on another within the same workbook. When specific data from the inbound sheet (LPN column) is 'shipped' and entered on the outbound sheet, that specific data needs to be verified against the order number it was intended to ship against and if everything lines up, to have a TRUE value returned, or FALSE if not.

Second one: same type of thing - I'd like to look for the same specific criteria (LPN) between the inbound and outbound worksheets and if the same LPN is found on the outbound sheet, to return a value of "SHIPPED".

Third and fourth - same deal again except this time, would like to tie back the outbound Destination and ship date data from the outbound worksheet to the inbound worksheet.

A copy of the workbook is attached for reference with cells that require formulas highlighted in yellow on the inbound sheet and data cells from which the formulas will verify data in green on the outbound sheet.

## Return True / False If String Of Words Is Present In Another List?

Dec 5, 2013

I have two lists, one that is 99,000 lines and the other is 150. I am trying to find out where the word(s) in the list of 150 is present in the list 99,000.

1st list of 99,000 is in Sheet1 A1-A99000 and the second list is in Sheet2 B1-B150.

The caveat is that in column A there is additional words in that cell so you can not do a simple vlookup, because there may or may not be an exact match.

I have been stuck for hours and the best i can get is to use the match function but it is not working because it is not exact. Last thing i want to do is use the CTRL F key to lookup all the words.

## Data Validation: If Previous Column Is Having A Value, Then Return FALSE Else TRUE

Jun 27, 2008

I am applying data validation in my workbook. The data in ColS consist of:

ColS
(Row2) X
(Row3) Y
(Row4) Y
(Row5) Y
(Row6) X

In ColT, I am to apply data validation: i.e. If in concerned row of ColS is having "X" value, then I am to show an error message. Else, values from A2:A5 should be shown in the as list and these should be accepted in ColT.

## Return Values Of Adjacent Cells When Condition Is True Omitting Values Where Condition Is False?

Jan 15, 2014

Here's a simplified example:

ColA
ColB
ColC

Row1
A
Y
A

Row2
B
N
D

[Code] .........

I'm looking to return the values in column A adjacent to the cells in Column B equal to "Y". The kicker has been returning only the cells where the condition is true. Column C displays the desired behavior.

The closest I've been able to get is with a simple IF statement but I'm pretty sure the answer is a far cry away from there and likely requires an array formula. I'd prefer not to use VLOOKUP or OFFSET but will if the alternative is very complex.

## Multiple True Or False - Sum Of Corresponding Cells

Dec 4, 2013

I've got a mega excel sheet right now with multiple people making updates to it on a daily basis. As such I am trying to find a way to output various totals in a separate static table which i can grab at any point and be confident numbers are correct.

The problem, firstly I cant figure out how to have multiple true false formulas checking the sheet from 1 cell. i.e "Check column B True/False for RestrauntNameXYZ + Check column E for true/false GroupABC + check column G for true/false Lunch"

and then

Calculate sum of column A for all rows which above combinations of true/false checks spit out.

## Check Cells In Each Row TRUE/FALSE

Jul 31, 2008

I'm trying to assist is working with sensitive data, and for security reasons I am unable to post the Excel sheet here. Here goes:

The user is working with a sheet in which uses checkboxes, and wants to assign values from cells in the same row as the checkbox to corresponding cells in the sheet (not a different book) if the box is checked.

I guess I should just ask what the best way to accomplish this is? I was thinking I need to do an IF test (do checkboxes return TRUE/FALSE?) and then assign values from the cells I need to corresponding cells in the next sheet. The big question for me using this method: how can I use a single IF statement to assign multiple cell values?

## Formula For True/false Tolerance Percent

Aug 7, 2009

I need to be able to get a true/false from a tolerance percent.

Here is an example of what I am trying to do

cell a2 is Nitrogen
cell b2 is (Known gas%) 2.4800%
cell c2 is (unknown gas%) 2.4963%
cell d2 is =b2-c2 and I get the answer no trouble there. what I need is to take the answer in cell d2 and set a plus/minus 2% tolerance in cell f2 and get a true/false comparison.

## If Formula Evaluates To True When Condition Is False

Nov 1, 2006

In E5, put "INSERT". In G5, put the formula

=E5="INSERT"

Should I be getting TRUE as the result? I'm getting FALSE. Is something wrong or am I going mad...

## VLookup With A False Return

Jan 15, 2009

I have 2 columns of data: Column A is basically postcodes, but just the 1st part and Column B is a #2. If somewhere else on the sheet I type in the postcode IE. SW19 it will show besides it in my lookup the number 2. However if I type in a postcode that is not listed in Column A, I'd like to to return the value 1. I cannot figure this out. My code is:

## Hide Checkbox TRUE/FALSE & Sum Values Adjacent To TRUE

Aug 2, 2009

I have a worksheet where I have around 300 rows, each with 7 columns. What I want to do is add a checkbox to each column. I plan on setting non-applicable checkboxes to mixed status and locking the worksheet. I will unlock applicable checkboxes and sumif or countif their value according to row-based scoring, for example, each checked checkbox represents a value of 3. I do not know VBA and have chose to use the form control checkboxes rather than ActiveX.

I believe that a formula for this would be something like: =SUMIF(B1:B3,True,"3") or =COUNTIF(\$B\$1:\$B\$3,True)*3

I am wondering firstly if I have that right and secondly if there is a way to stop my checkboxes from displaying labels. Currently, if I click on one it displays True behind the active checkbox. If I uncheck it, it displays False.

## Logical Formula: Value If True/false To Be Another Formula, Not Just A Set Value

Sep 16, 2009

I want to use the If formula but want the value if true/false to be another formula, not just a set value. Here's what I came up with (obviously wrong, please excuse my lack of experience) =IF(D2>C2,"=(D2-C2)*5","=((60-C2)+D2)*5 ")
