# Return Cell Containing Search Criteria

Dec 8, 2009

If I have a 'key' value in a cell in one sheet, i want to use that value to find the cell in another sheet containing the 'key' and return the row number of the cell, if more than one value then I would like to be able to loop through all the rows containing that 'key' value returning the row number of each hit, kind of a programmatic version of vlookup?

## Return Multiple Values Using Three Search Criteria?

Jun 9, 2014

I'd like to extract the data from Sheet 2 (Data) that falls within the selected date range but the formula I've entered in F\$9 (see below) is giving me an error

=IF(ROWS(A\$9:A9)>\$A\$5,"",INDEX(Data!A\$2:A\$387,SMALL(IF((Data!\$A\$2:\$A\$320>=\$A\$2)*(Data!\$A\$2:\$A\$320<=\$B\$2)*(Data!\$B\$2:\$B\$320=\$C\$2),ROW(Data!\$A\$2:\$A\$334)-ROW(Data!\$A\$2)+1),ROWS(A\$9:A9))))

## Match 2 Criteria And Search Column And Return Value Based On Value

Feb 14, 2014

I have a spreadsheet that contains data for a fiscal year broken out by month and quarter. I want the formula to return the data from that month and use whatever the latest quarter is. For example in the data below:

If it has only pulled data only thru Q1 it would return Q1 for Jan-Mar, however once I have Q2 data I would want the formula to return Q2 for the months of Jan-Mar.

## Return Multiple Values That Match Single Search Criteria?

Nov 28, 2012

Attached is a sample workbook, but essentially what I'm looking to do is automate the process of searching through a data set where the value of interest (in this case, names) often has multiple entries, with different values attached to each instance.

I would like to be able to get a list of all values in a given column that match a specific name in another column.

Currently I'm using a basic INDEX/MATCH search just to see whether the data exists at all, but that's only half of what I have to do here, and I'm totally stumped on how to get a comprehensive list of all matches.

For reference, if you look at the sample, what I need is a list of all values in the "CPT" column that match the name searched for in the first column.

The actual data set size is at most 3-400 entries, if that makes a difference in how to approach this.

## Excel 2007 :: Search And Return Result With 2 Criteria In Different Sheet?

Nov 7, 2013

I use the following formula in excel 2007 (and it's working perfectly in 2007) but this formula does not work if I work with the same file in excel 2003 ...w why and what I have to adjust?

(I'm working with the dutch excel version so it might be that ";" must be ",")

## Search Workbook For Cells That Meet Multiple Criteria And Return Results From Rows

Jun 28, 2013

I would like to perform a search on only the worksheets listed in a worksheet titled table of contents. I would like to use multiple criteria for this search and send only the unique results to a worksheet titled results. Each worksheet listed in the table of contents has a cell address for each heading that I would like to extract data from the same column. The attached workbook example shows the data that I would like to collect when I search for cells that begin with "AB" and cells that begin with "CD". I collected this data by copy and pasting all the data from each worksheet into the results page and then applying filters and advanced filter to remove duplicates. This method does not work well for the original workbook as the data is quite extensive.

## Search For A Name And Return The Value Of A Cell

Jun 18, 2014

I am trying to search a sheet for a given name and return the total point for that marking period. The main problem i am having is that the names aren't in the same cell on each sheet. It is a list of students and each sheet represents a marking period.

I have attached the file

## Search For Value In Array And Return Specified Cell

Jun 25, 2014

I have a formula which I took from another post to return a particular value in a specified cell as follows;

=INDEX(A1:E9,M3+MIN(IF(A1:E9=K3,ROW(A1:E9)-3)),N3+MIN(IF(A1:E9=K3,COLUMN(A1:E9)-1)))

However I don't understand what the -3 and -1 does and I believe it is these entries that are causing the error.

See attached file : TEST.xlsx‎

## Search Value Of A Cell On Another Worksheet Then Return A Value?

Jul 31, 2013

I need a formula that will search for the value of C1, Sheet1 in Sheet2 then if found, return a value from that row in column D? If not found then return a message "search emails".

I can upload a dummy if that's possible?

## Search First Non-blank Cell To Return A Value In Another Column?

Jun 9, 2014

Want to look in one column and find the first non-blank numerical value, then have it return a value from another column.

Used to nest multiple IF functions together from different cells, but it seems overly complicated and time consuming. Sometimes I have over 30 cells to check.

For example, if Column A contains weekly sales data by week, entered weekly, and Column E has corresponding comparison data from the previous year. I want to enter a formula to check the first row that has sales data entered and have it match up the comparison value in the other column.

## Search For Date In Array And Return In Cell

Mar 6, 2014

i wish to have a result of the below.

there are random dates in a column say D6:D17 in the format of (10/02/2014), there could only be one date in this column array or there could be several, like:

1/02/2014
12/04/2014
17/06/2014
5/12/2014

i also have an aray below this in cells D19:D30 With the "A" column showing the months Jan to Dec.

i wish to look the array of D6:D17 and populate the below cells corresponding with the months only, see example below. the reason for this is i wish to then turn the cell green with conditional formatting if there is a date in that month fro the original array.

Date10/02/2014
Date10/04/2014
Date10/06/2014
Date10/08/2014
Date10/12/2014

## Search For Text Within Cell Then Return Contents Of That Cell?

Jun 19, 2014

So right now I have a spreadsheet that looks something like this:

A
B
C
D

[Code]....

As you can see, the stock names are slightly different in columns A & C (CORP. vs CORP, CO vs CO., etc). I need a formula in column D that searches column A for the first word in column C, and then retrieves the contents of that cell. I want to do this because I will then use a vlookup in column E to get the ticker for the stock.

Right now I have: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(LEFT(C1,FIND(" ",C1)),A:A,1)),A:A,"")

This formula searches column A for EXXON, but does not return the contents of the cell. Instead, it returns the contents of a different cell in the column.

## Add Up All Values From The Cell Above The Search Criteria

Apr 29, 2009

I am trying to add up all values from the cell above the search criteria. Although sumifs does work well, it wont search the entire sheet, it only works in specified rows.
Also, the problem is that the values to be added are determined via a vlookup based off of a cell whose value is chosen by a drop down choice.

## Search A Cell For Certain Criteria From A List

Nov 3, 2008

I would like for C1 to search through the data in A1 and see if it contains a match for any of the zip codes listed in column B. If it does than I want it to report the zip that was matched and cell in C2. If there is no match then I want it to return the value, No Match in C2. I need the whole column B to be included in this code.

## A Macro To Search And Change A Cell If Criteria Is Not Met

Dec 7, 2006

I have gotten good modifying existing ones to fit my purpose but still have a lot to learn about creating them. I would like help in creating a macro that would search out several sheets (JanD.....DecD) and search for names in column K and a location name in column L. If the contents of the cells do not meet the criteria of name and location then I want the name to be changed to "OTHER".

## MSG Box To Search And Return Adjacent Cell Value For Phone List Extensions

Apr 18, 2013

I have a phone list and I am trying to add a search box to it that when you type in the Employee name, it will return the value of the cell adjacent to the search result so the extension can show up.

I am a VBA Novice, but I have found plenty of code for the searching aspect of it. I am having trouble figuring out how to have the search occur and then return a different value then what was originally searched for.

Ideally I would like the msg box to show both the employee's full name and extension.

## Search For Each ID In Single Cell & Return Corresponding Cell

Jul 3, 2009

to search for specific text in a cell but not just one word or letter, in fact it could be many. I need to first verify that the exact texts exist in a table and then match the various text instances with corresponding data in that table.

At the moment, this works to search for one type of text and verify it's exsistence in the able and indeed return the corresponding value, but i need it to do it for all verified texts

=(INDEX(A2:A4,MATCH( LOOKUP(9.99999999999999E+307,SEARCH(" "&\$B\$2:\$B\$6&" "," "&D2&" "),\$B\$2:\$B\$6),B2:B4,0),1))

## Search Formula (return A Statement If A Certain Month Is Contained In The Text Within Another Cell)

Dec 21, 2008

I am trying to write a formula that will return a statement if a certain month is contained in the text within another cell. Formula is =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("Dec",Assumptions!B2)),"Ensure Journal is Non Reversing","")

Cell B2 contains a date in the format of Dec 08, so if this date contains Dec, then return "Ensure Journal is Non Reversing", if it doesn't then leave the cell blank.

At the moment it is putting in the first test for every month I select and not changing to blank.

## Search Multiple Worksheets Against List Of Non-Exact Search Criteria?

Nov 2, 2009

I have a workbook with many many sheets in it. The first sheet contains a single column with about 10,000 different values. I'd like to use each of these as search criteria against ALL data in the other sheets (of which there are a good 50 or so). If matches are found (they don't have to be exact case), then I'd like two things to happen:

1. The rows containing the matched search criteria in the first sheet are highlighted.

2. In the cells adjacent to the search criteria in the first sheet, hyperlinks to the matched data are created and named after the sheet upon which this matched data appears.

I've attached a sample file to this post with ideal sample 'answers' to queries made of the first 2 terms.

## Return Value When Criteria Met From Another Cell

Feb 10, 2008

I have the name of an employee in cell B5 that I choose from a list. In cell L18 I have the result of the quality monitoring for this employee for a certain task. Now I have a seperate spreadsheet where I need to come up with individual performance scores. What I need to do is return value in L8 if B5=the agent I'm looking for. This also means that I would need to be able to do this on multiple cells in the same sheet. I've tried: =IF('[Workbook.xls]Sheet1'!\$B\$5=Name Employee,'[Workbook.xls]Sheet1'!\$L\$8,0) But I get a #name error and being pretty new to this I have no clue what to do next.

## Find Function Where Search Criteria Isn't Exact Match For Cell Contents

Dec 19, 2011

I am new to VBA and am having difficulties in getting a find function to successfully locate search criteria within cell. When the search criteria matches exactly that of the cell contents then the code works; however should the search criteria only form part of the total cell contents (such as a seach for "the" in a cell containing "the cat sat on the mat") the code doesn't recognise it.

Essentially, I need the code to search a range for the required string and if found within a cell activate that cell and populate a combobox with the full cell contents of the activecell.offset(0,-2).

The relevant section of code attached below:

Dim role_count as range
Dim role as string

If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("Role_Count"), Role) 0 Then
Range("role_count").Select
Selection.Find(What:=Role, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _
xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Me.Controls(ComboBoxName) = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -2).Value

## Formula To Return Cell That First Meets Certain Criteria?

Mar 5, 2014

Say I have a column of cells filled with numbers that are ascending. What I would like to do is to pick out the first cell that meets my condition. For instance, these cells contain irrational numbers that increase from 0 to 100. I would like a formula to pick out the first cell that exceeds 10.2, and to return the row number of that cell.

In the case of descending numbers, if I would like to pick out the first cell that goes below 10.2, would the formula be the same?

## SUMIFS - If No Criteria Match Leave Cell Blank Else Return Value

Nov 5, 2011

I'm trying to set up my formula so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

(I recommend skipping the below text and just opening the attached spreadsheet, instructions/what I'm looking for and trying to achieve and well laid out requirements and examples are in the spreadsheet and much more thoroughly explained then I can do below)

I'm setting up a table that grabs data from columns in a raw data spreadsheet.

For the purpose of the table I'm making, the formula needs to match up both the House, and the year/month from the raw data sheet, then if the two match and are side by side, return the value to the right either in the Plan Field or the actuals field depending on which field in the table the formula is in. If there is no entry or matching criteria for both the house and Month then it should leave the cell blank, not show a 0

So I have a SUMIFS formula that I'm trying to set up so that if there is no criteria match it leaves the cell blank.

So =SUMIFS(sum range, criteria& range, criteria&range), if no matching criteria can be found, leave cell blank, else if matching criteria found then return value from the sumrange.

This is the exact formula I am using:

=SUMIFS(INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$B9, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$A\$8, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), Table!\$A\$9, INDEX('Raw Data'!\$1:\$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!\$B\$8, 'Raw Data'!\$1:\$1, 0)), TEXT(Table!C\$8, "yyyymm"))

Yeah kind of hard to follow, so attached is a very detailed and well laid out spreadsheet showing the example of what the formula is, how it's working/what it's returning and an example of what i want it to return/look like, so please check out the spreadsheet, it explains it a million times better.

Essentially though i want the formula set up so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

## How To Search 2 Criteria Using Search Function

May 16, 2014

I have an 'Update' Module that search the value of the Userform1.txt_sc.Value in Column B, but I want to search to 2 criteria, how can i amend the below code to search for 2 criteria ( userform1.txt_sc.value & userform1.txt_linenum.value )

## Search For Multiple Text Strings In A Cell - Return One Of Multiple Corresponding But Different String

Mar 11, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 1,000 rows of data.

Each Cell in Column A has a different long text string.

I need to see which (if any) of 10 specific small text strings exist within each long text string. Depending on which small text string is found I want to return a 3 digit code. If no small text string is found I want to return "Not Found"

E.g.:
- Cell A2 contains "randomtext,randomtext,APPLE,randomntext"
- I want to see if Cell A2 contains any of the words APPLE, ORANGE, CARROT.

Q: What is the most elegant way to accomplish this within a single formula that I could paste into each cell in Column B?

## Get A Cell To Return A Value If The Criteria In A Cell Is Met?

## Search Multiple Criteria If Match Append Multiple Cells To One Cell?

Apr 28, 2012

I am having such a difficult time creating a macro that will reduce the 5+hours I have to spend each week manually copying & pasting all of this data. I making an IMMENSE difference in this worker bee's life!

I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 & Sheet2). Sheet1 has license #'s in column A and the state that the license belongs to in column B like this:

Sheet2 has three columns. Column A has the license #'s, column B has the state that the license belongs to and Columns C shows a line-of-authority tied to that license #.

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN
AlabamaProperty11112AlabamaCasualty11113ArkansasLife11113ArkansasHealth11114
ArkansasLife11114ArkansasHealth12345ArizonaProperty

I'm trying to write a macro that will compare the license # and state in Sheet1 to the license # and state in Sheet2. If it matches, append the contents of Column C to the corresponding row in Sheet1.

Here's the thing...Sheet2 contains the entries for all licenses in the company (so this table is HUGE). And there are multiple entries for each state license # (notice how there's two entries above for AK license # 11111 - one for the Property line and one for the Casualty line.

After my macro is run, I want Sheet1 to show all the lines-of-authority on a single line. So if I ran my macro on the above example, after it's run I would have this in Sheet1:

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN
