Return Cell Address That Falls Within A Range Of A Custom Lookup Function

Jul 3, 2009

I am performing a lookup using the populare user defined function nlookup, which does not take a lookuparray argument to find lookup values. But I only want to return lookup values that fall into a certain array. To accomplish this, I figured out that I need a way to specify a condition of the type "if cell address of lookup value falls within range"

It should be possible if I find a way to return the cell address of the nlookup value, but as nlookup is not limited by a lookuparray argument, so I was not able to use the address/index/match that come up in similar questions.

Return 0-100% Grade On Value Depending On Where Value Falls Within Custom Range

Jul 30, 2012

I have a custom range -55% to 55% as part of a grading system for sales growth. I want to return a 0-100% grade depending on where within that -55% to 55% range a sales reps growth for a month falls. For exaple, if a sales rep scores 0% growth for a month, they will receive a 50% grade by where 0% falls within the -55% to 55% range.

Formula To Return Specific Value If Cell Falls Within Range

Apr 6, 2012

I am looking for a formula that will enable me to determine which one out of five thresholds a percentage falls within and the retuns a specific value for the corresponding threshold. Here is an example of the data (only showing three thresholds):

_____A________B_________C____
1 ___0.0%_____50%_____\$5.00
2 ___51%______75%_____\$15.00
3 ___76%_____100% ____\$25.00

Where the values in A1 and B1 are the low and high ends of one range. I would like the formula to determine which range the value falls within and return the value in collumn C (C1 for the A1:B1 range).

I can do this using multiple 'if' statements, but am looking for a much more streamlined way to determine the proper value in column C.

I have a range of cells (C29:BB29) containing zeros and integers, I want to lookup the smallest non-zero value from that range in another range (C11:BB11) and return the cell address from C11:BB11 to use in a further SUM formula.
Is that possible?

Return Cell Address Of Lookup Value

Jan 24, 2008

I'm trying to return the cell address of an lookup. The lookup result is correct, but when I try use the below Address function, it just returns the text value (i.e., the formula itself) instead of the cell address. Below is the an example of each: ...

Vlookup Function To Return The Cell Address

Return The Cell Housing UDF In Same Custom Function

Mar 5, 2008

I'm trying to create a user-defined function, but the function needs to know what cell it has been placed in. I want to use this cell reference to get some other offset values. I can easily find out offset values based on the ActiveCell, but not for those offset values based on where the UDF is actually placed, which could be almost anywhere on the worksheet.

Return Data That Falls Between A Range

Mar 12, 2009

Dates
1/2/2006
11/29/2007
7/3/2008

Table:
Year Start Date End Date
2005 01/30/2005 01/28/2006
2006 01/29/2006 02/3/2007
2007 02/04/2007 02/2/2008
2008 02/03/2008 01/31/2009

For each "Date", I need to scan the table and find which "Start Date" and "End Date" range does it fall into and return the applicable "Year". For example:

1/2/2006 will return 2005
11/29/2007 will return 2007
7/3/2008 will return 2008

Return Value If It Falls Within Values In Range Of Cells?

Jun 12, 2014

I am trying to learn more about functions like IF(), AND() MATCH() and LOOKUP()... but so far I cant seem to get it right. I am actually trying to get a simple working formula that can take a value from the first tab and cross reference it with a table in the second tab to return another value in the first tab.

For example....

On the first tab/sheet named "Details", i have a list of people, an area of work they fall in and then a column named region that categorizes their areas of work into groups

A
B
C

1
Name
Area of Work
Region

2
Mr A
J
?

3
Mr B
6
?

4
Mr D
Z
?

5
Mr E
18
?

Then on the next tab/sheet named "Category", I have a table which lists the areas that belong to a region;

A
B

1
Region
Area

2
1
A-J. 1-6

3
2
K-P, 7-15

4
3
Q-U,W,Z,16-20

I have tried formulas like IF(AND(B2=Category.B2),"1","ERROR") but it keeps returning me "ERROR" when it should return "1"

Return VLookup Based On If Value Falls Within Range

Jul 11, 2014

Data set

Column A Column B
PriceCode1 5.36

Sheet 2 Data Set

Column A Column B Column C Column E
PriceCode1 5.02 10.01 313
PriceCode1 10.02 50.01 314
PriceCode1 50.02 100.01 315

Formula on Sheet 1:

{=INDEX('Price calculation'!\$E\$1:\$E\$70,MATCH(C3&D3,'Price calculation'!\$A\$1:\$A\$70&'Price calculation'!\$B\$1:\$B\$70,1))}

The issue I am having is that the value isn't an exact match so it is returning line 3 with a value of 315 rather than line 1 and a value of 313. What am I doing wrong?

Find Value In Range Then Return The Cell Address?

Mar 16, 2014

construct a formula that finds a value in a range , then returns the cell address of that value.

Say, i wanted to find the amount 12385 from another sheet , range C2:AA12 (contains only numbers , no duplicates). result should give me the address of that value.

I have tried the address & match function but gives me an N/A error.

.range.find Need To Return Cell Address

Nov 14, 2007

when I use the range.find function to find a certain value in a column.. i want to return the address of the cell.. and save it in a range variable. how would I do that?

so this is what i have now.. but Rng does not return as a range.. it returns 69... when i use ctrl + G and type ?rng

set rng = .range(A:A).find(what:=69, After:=.Cells(1, 1), Searchorder:=xlByRows, searchdirection:=xlPrevious)
ok so say it picks up..... cell A69... how do i get it to save range A69

Return Single Cell Address From Range

May 18, 2007

I have a list of ID's on one sheet that are also located in a large matrix on another sheet.

This macro uses the Find_Range function to find each ID within the matrix and return the column header where the ID was first located.
There is also a line which return a list of ranges, indicating all the places where the ID was found.

What I want is to convert the list of ranges into a list of corresponding column headers (ie row 1 of all columns in the range)

' Number of id's in list
RowCnt = Application.WorksheetFunction. CountA(Columns("A"))

For I = 2 To RowCnt

LookFor = Sheets("ID List").Range("A" & I)
Set InRng = Sheets("Matrix").Cells
Set Found = Find_Range(LookFor, InRng, xlValues, xlWhole)
Sheets("RateID Count").Range("C" & I) = Sheets("Matrix") _
On Error Goto 0

Use Range Address From Cell In Index Function

Sep 15, 2007

I have a sheet with multiple tabs - 1 per employee. I'm trying to run an index on a select tab based on the contents of a cell in order to do a summary across all employees/tabs.

The person's name is Tulley and is listed on the summary page in cell A11. =INDEX(TULLEY!\$B\$4:\$M\$5,1,\$B11) returns the correct value. I would like to replace the tab reference with the name of the person concatenated with an exclamation point. This yields TULLEY! -

INDIRECT("A11")&"!". I thought that I would be able to replace the TULLEY! in the index formula with the indirect formula. This formula returns TULLEY!, but the index function doesn't work: =INDEX(INDIRECT("A11")&"!"&\$B\$4:\$M\$5,1,\$B11).

Lookup Cell And Return A Range Of Cells

Jun 9, 2008

I have data inputted into cells a-o in rows 1-250. I want to search, lets say row 1, (I do want to search all 250 rows if that info is relevant!) and if cell m is blank then I want to return all the info from row 1 into row 260. If there IS data in cell m then I want to return nothing. Bottom line I want to return all the data in all the rows that contains nothing in cell m.

Custom Function, UDF, To Return Nothing Or Empty Text

Jul 16, 2009

I am plotting a chart using data from custom functions. On occasion, the formulas return erratic values (due to the underlying data) which I wish to exclude from the chart. If the function does not pick up a value in the code, by default it returns a zero.I would like when this happens to have my function return nothing instead of a value - and I mean absolutely nothing, not a blank string. in this way, the chart line will totally ignore this point.

Lookup Data From Multiple Worksheet Using Indirect Address And Match Function

Sep 28, 2011

determining the correct formula to lookup various details from multiple worksheet:

Data as follows:
Sheet1: input
AB1MonthSales2AUG55003MAY4000

Sheet2: Data

AB1MonthSales2JAN20003FEB25004MAR30005APR35006MAY40007JUN45008JUL50009AUG550010SEP600011OCT650012NOV700013DEC7500

i dont know what is the correct range inside the match fuction to identiy the row number inside the Data sheet, i think the solution would be match(a2,Data!a2:a13,0) but things might get complicated if you have multiple worksheet such as sheet2: Data , sheet3: Data2, sheet3: Data 3

and each table has unsorted details compared to others sheets (Data vs Data 2)

Lookup Date And Return Specific Cell Value From A Range

Jan 31, 2014

I have a table that has a number of new starters and corresponding appointments offered, what I originally required was to lookup the chronological date after the new start date.

However this has now been scuppered by my boss who has requested that not only lookup the date, but also add who the appointment is with, but if I do this the first array formula stops working and to tell the trust I'm not to sure how to do it anyway.

IF Cell Falls Within A Specific Range Then

Oct 28, 2009

I am half way through a Worksheet where I am using VBA to perform more than the measly 3 Conditional formats that excel offer. This is working fine but I am now looking into a way of reversing the formats if a mistake is made and the condition is removed.

To make this sound more straightforward it is a rota sheet. If I enter Holiday the cells interior turns pink, Half turns light blue, On Call turns green etc. If this is changed I need to change it back to the original formatting.

I have partly done this with a Case "" but the Rota changes colour with different teams so I need to have an IF statement in there that say if the Target Cell falls within this Range say A5:AF10 change to tan IF the target falls within A6:Af20 change to sky blue etc. Below is the code I have so far.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Dim WatchRange As Range
Dim CellVal As String
On Error Resume Next
CellVal = Target
Set WatchRange = Range("A1:AF100")
If Not Intersect(Target, WatchRange) Is Nothing Then

Select Case CellVal
Case "Holiday"
Target.FormatConditions.Delete
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 38
Target.Font.ColorIndex = 1......................

Lookup Functions Find The Address Of The Minimum Value In That Range

Sep 19, 2009

I have a range of cells (say A1:D8).
I wanna find the address (say \$B\$2) of the minimum value in that range.

This command does it but it only works on a column. it does not accept a range spanning more than one column.
this will tell me the address of the minimum value.. but in a column... I need a range of many columns.

So I tried converting things to a Table.. but it never worked. basically the MATCH command is my problem. It only accepts single-column-ed ranges.

Return Range Address Across Different Columns Based On Conditions

Apr 23, 2008

I am trying to return a cell address range based on values in different columns. Attached is an example.

In Column A1 I have "Range" and below that a set of numbers from 1 to 31.

In Column B1 the name "Test" is used as an identifier, below that are the letters "a" though to "e". Once the letter "e" is reached the identifier "Test" is moved to column C "C6" and the alphabet continues from "f" down to "j". This process is repeated through the rest of the alphabet and the identifier moved to the next column after every 5th letter.

What I want to do is as follows:-

I would like to know the cell addresses of all instances of "test" from Column A numbers 6 throught to 24. The result should be C7:C12, D14:18 & D20:24. The results should ignore all instances of the identifier "test" and only return the cells which contain the letters of the alphabet.

I have tried using Vlookup which works well if the letters are all in the same column and I have incorporated the Address and Match formulas to return the range if all the alphabets are in the same column, but I do not know how to do this if the identifier "test" and letters move to a differnt column.

Dec 26, 2006

I am trying to create a correlation matrix that uses the =ADDRESS function to define the various columns of data which I want to correlate against each other (I require this flexibility because the number of columns and rows of data to be correlated will change). The basic formula I am using is something like the following: =CORREL((ADDRESS(Sheet1!\$C\$2+3,L2+2,,,"Sheet1")),(ADDRESS(Sheet1!\$B\$2,L2+2,,,"Sheet1")))

However, while the individual ADDRESS fomulas deliver the correct start and end cell references required, it seems that CORREL function won't accept the cell addresses that result from using the =ADDRESS function.

Lookup Function That Can Return Value From Array

Apr 11, 2014

I need a look-up function that can return a value from an array that can be 3 to 7 rows in height. I want the function to always look at the last row in the array.

This is how it looks:

Column A Column B
blank row
1000
A
B
C
SUM 15
blank row

In this case I want the function to return 15 if I search for 1000. The problem is that there are not always a fixed number of rows beneath the searched value.

Setting Range.Formula With Custom Function

For example, I want I37 on most sheets to have the same formula. So I have the following:

Custom Function Returns Range And Comment

Jun 20, 2006

I am trying to write a UDF that will calculate a value and return it to the cell, and also create a comment in the cell showing the formula used. Here is an example of the "=calculate(A2,B2)" placed in cell A1

Function calculate(ByRef X As Range,ByRef Y As Range)
calculate=x*y
calculate.addcomment "calculate = " & X & " * " & Y
End Function

the problem commes from the add comment field. I can add a comment to any cell but the cell the formula is called from.
