# Retrieving Cell Values Based On User Defined Number Range?

Mar 31, 2014So I have 2 sheets from a much larger worksheet where I wish for the first sheet to extract a row of values, one at a time from the second sheet using a range of numbers I enter as reference for where to look for the data. Sheet 1 can be thought of as a summary page and Sheet 2 is where data is stored.

I need to first check if any data under Sheet 2 column B fall within a specified range of numbers and if any of those numbers are found I want it to grab the largest and latest number from that range and pull all the data from certain columns in that same row and place it into Sheet 1, one column value at a time.

Sheet 1 A1 = A range of numbers as text. 10-15, 16-20 etc Only one range is entered. This also tells me what results I'm looking at.

Sheet 1 B4:B14 = Destination cells for the individual data I'm wanting to pull from Sheet 2 columns H:P. B4 wants H, B5 wants I, B6 wants J etc

Sheet 2 column A = A3:A102 are numbered 1:100.

Sheet 2 column B = A series of numbers anywhere from 10-70. Always in sequence and they can repeat. 10,10,11,12,13,14,15,15,15,16 etc. Ranges from B3:B102. Only one number per cell.

Sheet 2 columns H:P = Data in H3:P102 I want to extract to Sheet 1 B4:B14.

Now lets say I want a formula for Sheet 1 B4 which wants a value in Sheet 2 H. If Sheet 1 A1 = 10-15, I want to check whether Sheet 2 column B has any values equaling those and then tell me which row that last number appeared in.

Example: Sheet 2 B4=14, Sheet 2 B5=14, Sheet 2 B6=16. Use B5. (B6 is outside range and B4 isn't the last time the 14 appears.)

Then, knowing B5 is the value I want, find which row it is in (row 5 in this example) or use the number in A5 (3) and then find my way to column H (H5) where the value I want to pull is.

Example 2: Sheet 2 B4=14, Sheet 2 B5=14, Sheet 2 B6=16. Use B5.

Sheet 2 H4=10, Sheet 2 H5=32, Sheet 2 H6=42. Place "32" from H5 into Sheet 1 B4.

I'd like to also have some error control so I'm not trying to pull data from blank cells if it's relevant. Maybe check if Sheet 2 X3=0 and if it is, do nothing as no data appears if the cell is 0.

I have put a lot of time into trying to solve this myself but I feel way out of my depth. I've tried going step by step but I can't seem to figure out which functions are relevant and also things like how to return the range that the A1 values appear in or if using MAX, not having it return values outside of A1's range also.
