Retain INDEX MATCH Data From External File?

Jun 11, 2014

I've 1 master file with event info (dates, times, categories, prices etc). I have another file to track sales which uses index match to pull data from the master file (stored on a server) instead of double entering.

Upon opening the sales file, all the index match cells are blank until opening the master file, even after saving.

Is there a way to make the file retain all the data it pulls without setting manual calculation (manual spreads like a virus to other user's files - finance manager almost killed me last time)

I currently have a macro button set up to open/close the master file, but if I try to filter/sort the data without the master file open it all disappears again.

Get Data From Cells In External File - File Name Changes Daily

Aug 1, 2014

I have a file that gives some statistical data to my co-workers every 15 minutes. A common question I get is "How does that compare to last week?" Then I have to open the file from 7 days ago, find the data from the same time interval, and subtract it from this week's number in my head. I'd like to have excel do this for me.

I know how to get data from an external file. The problem is, these files are named with a date on the end of the file name. So tomorrow, the static formula won't work anymore (or rather, it will give data for a file from 8 days ago, instead of 7). I'd like to excel to use today's date, find the file from 7 days ago, and get the data from that file to compare to the current file.

Here's what I've done so far:

Code:
ThisDate = Range("C1").Value 'the cell with todays date in it
ThisDateName = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'now formatted the way I need it
ThisDate7 = Range("G1").Value 'the cell with the date 7 days ago
ThisDateName7 = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'formatted correctly
ThisDate14 = Range("G2").Value 'the cell with the date 14 days ago
ThisDateName14 = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'you know, in case of a holiday 7 days ago

I have no clue what to do next. I want Excel to: Use "ThisDateName7" to find the file with the name "pph_tracker_[ThisDateName7].xlsm"Get data from a cell in that file (say, C15)Subtract it from the data in the same cell (C15) in today's file (this week - last week)Give me the result in today's file (say in cell C20)Do that again for cells D15, E15, and so on (result in D20, E20, etc)

I assume I can figure out the rest from there. Can I use the variable names in an actual formula in cell C20? Something like:

=C15 - '[pph_tracker_{ThisDateName7}.xlsm]Sheet1'!C15
or even
=C15 - '[pph_tracker_{The Date in Cell $G$1}.xlsm]Sheet1'!C15
which would require no macros at all!

VLOOKUP / INDEX / MATCH Function: Match Data From 2 Independent Sets??

Oct 8, 2009

I am trying to match data from 2 independent sets, formatted slightly differently so not sure which function would work best for me. From the attached file, I am trying to match the date and time stamp (in cell A1) with that from the other data (in this example in cell E1) and return the data (from cell F1) to cell C1. So basically any date and time stamp before 04/03/09 04:00 will return a value of 44 (this value should appear, therefore in cells C1 - C30)

Importing Data From External File

Apr 13, 2009

I have bit of code that opens an external excel file (call it the source workbook), grabs certain data, copies the data to other excel file (call it the destination workbook), and then closes. I have most of the code completed but am running into an issue with how to grab certain data from the source workbook and copying it to destination workbook.

I want the code to read the data in the source workbook line-by-line.

For each line that is read, I want to copy part of that data (value in column A and column B) to column A and column B of destination workbook only if the value in column D is equal to Block. For column C and column D, I want to do some form of lookup, being I want the code to look at each line of data until it finds corresponding line in which column A = 60612105 and in which column B = the value in B. Once this line is found, copy the value in C to column C of destination workbook and value in D to column D of destination workbook.

I have attached two files. First file is the import file (destination workbook) which has two tabs; (1) import tab (2) desired result. Second file is the raw data file (source workbook). Hopefully this makes since.

Index Match Formula For Compiling Data

Jul 7, 2014

I am working on a spreadsheet where I need to have data from different sheets added but based on the instructor whose data I want to see in the summary sheet. I want to be able to type the name of the instructor in a cell and have all of the data appear below. I believe that an index match formula would work, but I do not know how to have the data from the different sheets added nested in the formula.

Index Match Vs D Function To Summarize Data

Oct 24, 2008

I have a project that has several worksheets of "summarized" data all pulled from one worksheet. The data worksheet is run through an external program and pasted into the workbook to update the information.

To this point I have used tons of index match array formula's to pull the information but I've found this to be extremely inefficient because there are hundreds if not thousands of formulas, and it takes several minutes to update. The file is also around 3MB which is way too big.

I was thinking about using VBA to simplify the worksheets, but then I came across an article about D_Functions and I'm thinking they may be the solution to my problems.

However there is one catch...I'm not sure how I would build these formulas to work in my worksheets. I understand the principle behind the D_Functions, but I can't seem to grasp the concept of integration and making it work in my scenario.

I've attached an example of this workbook, it has most of the forumla's deleted out to reduce the file size, but it should give you an idea of what I'm doing. Once you open it you'll have to unhide some columns to get to the nitty gritty of the sheet.

Feel free to take a gander...I'm open to any suggestions you may have at this point (except to trash the whole project hehehehe ). If you find a solution please explain the concept behind it. I really want to learn how to make this work rather than plugging in someone elses formulas.

Copy Data Of Index Match Function According Date?

Jun 24, 2014

I have the first sheet named "DPF" where I have a column "Date", "FIT", "Group" On my second Sheet named "Tracker" what I do want to do:

I select a date for example 18-07-2014 (Cell E3), if cell E4 I Have "Fit" and F4 "Group" In C6 I have E3-15, to get the date minus 15 days (03-07-2014) In C7 I have E3-12 (06-07-2014) and so on

What I want is, if the date of today is C6 or C7 or whatever, use the index match function to get the number corresponding to the date chosen (18-07-2014) for the FIT. But, once I get the figure, I want to keep it, because with the if function, once we are the 4th of July, the figure for C6 disappears...

Fri
18-Jul
FITGroup
Start
D-1503-Jul
D-1206-Jul
D-909-Jul
D-612-Jul
D-615-Jul
D-216-Jul
D-117-Jul
D18-Jul

So either a macro to copy the specific data into another sheet or a another way to keep it. Because the idea as the end is to do different scenario based on the result got per period..

Excel 2010 :: Index - Match With Data In Rows

Jan 7, 2013

Using Excel 2010.

Rows 1 and 2 (range: A1:CM2) within Spreadsheet X contain the range of data that I need.

Within Spreadsheet Y, Row 6 will change monthly and will be input by the user. The value in Row 6 equals the data in Row 2 in worksheet X.

I need to put a formula in row 4 of spreadsheet Y that returns the value of Row 1 in Spreadsheet X.

Unfortunately, I cannot change the spreadsheet layout, otherwise I could do an HLOOKUP formula using Spreadsheet Y Row 6 and Spreadsheet X Row 2 and be done with it. I assume that I need to use an Index-Match formula, which I am not as familiar with. In addition, all of the online support I have found explains Index-Match with data in columns, not rows.

Reconciling Large Amount Of Data When VLookup And Match / Index Not Ideal

Nov 12, 2013

I need a little coaching on big data. I have two reports, one from a production system the other from the invoicing system. I need to reconcile the two reports to ensure our invoicing ties out to production. At this time I am focusing on 1 particular item code, but there are potentially hundreds of item codes.

I have 1 Item Code.
I have a around a hundred invoices. (Sample 100)
I have a few hundred different customers. (Sample 100)
I have several hundred lines of billing data. (Sample 650)
I have several thousand lines of production data. (Sample 40,000)
In the billing system, per invoice I might have 1 or more billing lines for this item, usually no more than 2.
In the production system, per invoice I might have 5 to 50 or more production lines for this item per invoice.

Example
Prod System:
30 lines of data has a run amount and a total run amount for each line.

I am looking for tools to reconcile this data. VLookup and Index/Matching is not cutting it. VLOOKUP does not move beyond the first line found. Index/Matching wants to add all the prod together. I can get subtotals easy enough. I have tried Concatenation, but when it takes multiple production data lines to equal 1 billing line, this does not work. I needs some thing that can look at the Qty on a billing invoice and tie it out to various lines of production data to identify which production jobs went on that line of the invoice.

Here is a sample. These are fairly easy to resolve, but others are not so easy due to number of production and billing rows.

Invoice number
Billing item
Est. Quantity
Actual quantity
Billable Qty
Sales order
Position number
Sequence
Agreement
Billing source
Description
Total Billable Qty

External File(s) Referenced And File Links Change Based On Row Cell

Oct 22, 2009

I have attached the file I am working on. I am attempting to create a link to an external file based on the value of cells in column A. Then I would like to simply copy the formula down, lets say in Column B, the rows and as I do the external file reference will change depending on the value within the cell in Column A. I hope that I am making sense.

I am using Windows Vista with Excel 2007. The files will all be within the same file folder, however, there are hundereds of files so I won't be able to open them all for the indirect to work.

Retain Format Importing Text File

Jun 6, 2007

I am having problems choosing a format for the column in my spreadsheet that contains my account codes. This is especially a problem when the code starts with an '=' sign and is followed by a number or has a '' sign followed by a number.

I receive the file in a .txt format which I guess if I get it that way I would not have a problem but as I need to work on the file in excel before uploading it I experience problems. For instance when I open the file the codes that begin with '=' + a letter for instance =Y just comes up as '# name?' and only when I click in the cell can I see that it is =Y. Also the code '=1' just comes up as '1' as does '1' - now this causes problems as for a start I need to do Vlookups on the account code but now instead of three distinct codes I have 3 1's.

The only way that I have discovered how to solve this is to click into each cell and add a ' before the text. (this changes the format to text - right??) But obviously this is very time consuming - is their a quicker way to change these cells. I can't just right click and format cells - text. This does not work?

Offset / Index / Match - Using 3 Functions To Search For And Return Values From Data Sheet

Jan 19, 2014

Trying to grasp the concept of using these 3 functions to search for and return values from a data sheet.

The attached spread sheet has performance data for a group of employees.

What I need to do is find a particular employee then return a value for one of the category's.

For instance, I need to find "10TE03 ANGIE HOLLIS" Parts Usage on color or cell C10 in the attached sample.

Sometimes new category's are added to column A adding to the number of rows so a simple offset is not reliable.

Once I get that working, I then need to use a named range to total and average different data points for groups of employees by teams.

Maybe Offset-Index-Match is not even the way to go here?

VBA Code For Data Validation Input Message By INDEX MATCH When Cell Clicked

May 30, 2014

code that will be able to lookup a cell in Column J of Sheet1 by using a lookup value on Sheet2. The lookup value can be any cell in columns B, D, F, H, J, K, or N on Sheet2. The tricky part is, I want the result of this lookup (the result comes from Column H of Sheet1) to be placed as a data validation input message for the cell directly to the right of the lookup value when this cell is clicked.

For Example: Lookup Value is "416991" which lies in cell N8 on Sheet2. Look it up in Column J of Sheet1 and return the appropriate value "X" from Column H of Sheet1. "X" will then appear as an input message when cell O8 of Sheet2 is clicked.

Keep/Retain Leading Zeros When Importing Text File

Jun 5, 2008

i cant do this from importing the data, so instead i have to try and fix it with code. I get a sheet of data from an external source that removes the 0's in the front of the number. Its only a 4 digit number so 21 would be 0021. Now i have been able to trap the data i think i would need. i created a =len() statement to tell me how many numbers each cell has. here is the code i think how it would work.. i just need a little help with filling in the blanks. I would assume its something to the lines of " 00+string value if it was 2 numbers needed.

B2 has the Len values (4,3,2,1 etc) and A1 is the original string that has the values.
So i want the code to add 1 2 or 3 zeros to the front of the number based on the len value.

Range("B2").Select
While ActiveCell.Value <> ""
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 0).Select
Select Case ActiveCell.Value
Case Is = "3"
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 1).Select
Case Is = "2"
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 1).Select......................

Match & Copy Data From File To File

Aug 23, 2008

Is there an easy way to automatically copy data from 1 Excel spreadsheet to another when the data is slightly out of order? Currently an admin copies and pastes from file 1 to file 2 manually. There are approximately 800 names to copy. It would be ideal to type a command or press a key and have file 2 updated automatically. Is there a feasible way to accomplish this without spending a lot of money or time?

file 1 file 2

john 100 john 100
june 200 lance 50
marie 150 june 75
stan 100 marie 125
phone 50 stan 200
hold 25

In the example above, if lance doesn't appear in file 1 his amount doesn't get copied and his 50 remains the same. The amounts do not get added, just pasted over from file 1 to file 2 with the days sales results. Only the names on file 2 get pasted over. Phone and hold amounts in file 1 are ignored.

Index And / Or Match Formula With Multiple Match Required To Return A Value

Jan 21, 2014

See attached file, "Rate Sample Index-Match Formula".

I need a formula to return the value at the cross section of two (2) lookup values that match. This formula will be input into column D under, "RATE" on the 1st tab, "TEST FILE".

In the 1st tab, "TEST FILE" there are a series of columns as follows;

A = Service
B = From
C = To
D = Rate

In the 2nd tab, "RATES" there is a series of rates with drivers From (green) & To (blue)

The formula needs to do the following;

1. Lookup the "From" value in column B on tab, "TEST FILE" and match to column B2:B59 on tab, "RATES" both highlighted in green
2. Then Lookup the "To" value in column C on tab, "TEST FILE" and match to row C1:BH1 on tab, "RATES" both highlighted in blue
3. Then return the value at the cross section of the match "From" (point 1 above) & "To" (point 2 above) in range C2:BH59

For Example;

The rate From SYD To CBR = 0.33. I have highlighted this in yellow on both tabs to show where the formula needs to lookup the data to return the answer.

Additionally, if we were to add service as an additional lookup match how would this work?
