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.

I'm trying to do is (in column L) find which column the figure in column K appears in the preceding columns, then look in row 9 and return the month when this was charged. I need some kind of reverse HLOOKUP-type function!

Sheet B contains a column called "Name" and for each name, and for each name there are corresponding numbers. In sheet A, I have a "list of interest" in column A. What i want to do look through the data in sheetB to find a match from the list of interest and return the corresponding letters, located in column A.

I have filled out the first two rows of results that should be returned as an example.

One idea i had was to put a vlookup formula in each column result 1 to result 6 so i can catch all 6 "Serves" columns from column B, but there may be duplicates in the serve columns and vlookup only reports the first match.

Where my variables would be based on whether a person is under EnglishSS1 and getting a score of <=10, the resulting rating would be 3. I know this is doable by doing a vlookup with a range lookup value of false. However I have roughly 70 column headers and it will be a bit taxing to combine an If and Vlookup statement to address it.

I have attached a sample sheet for reference : Book1.xlsx

I am trying to do an INDEX/MATCH to return a value based on multiple lookup_values.

The workbook is attached, and what I am trying to accomplish is this:

If 50, 75, or 90 are selected from Column D drop down of this (Main) worksheet, then return Column A, B, and C values for those rows to the Report worksheet.

So in my sample spreadsheet, John, Jim, and Jack's information should be returned on the Report worksheet because their Column D shows 50, 75, and 90. Alice, Wanda, and Cindy's information should not be returned on the Report worksheet because their column D shows Budget Only, Contacting, and 100.

My current INDEX/MATCH formula is =INDEX(Main!$C2,MATCH(50,Main!$D2),0), but this only works when column D has 50 chosen because I have only asked MATCH to return info if it finds something with 50 because I do not know how to ask it to search for multiple lookup_values.

So, as you will see, only John's information is returned on the report worksheet, but Jim and Jack's are not.

I know something very similar was posted before, but unfortunately, it wasn't what I was looking for. I have a Worksheet tracking several associates and the department they have done work in. (Our associates are contractors for other departments). I need to have a final worksheet that allows me to pull up a name, and display every dept they worked with in the past week.

I am trying to look & match key values from 2 areas of one table with two areas of another table; in turn, it'd return one value based on the lookup table...

I have sheet full of data containing results of multiple tests on various equipment.The sheet contains many columns of data but below are the specifc criteria i want to use to extract the data. As maintenance is carried out regularly the list is always growing. I want to create a dashboard summary of the "Machines" which i will colour using condition formatting. I will list the machines in the columns and would like the rows below each machine to be populated with the results.

Column 1 Lists the various factories Column 2 Lists the Machine Column 3 Lists the Part Column 4 Lists the result.

Results can either be "ok", "warning", "Alert" only

Excel offers many ways to use a key to lookup a value (VLookup, Index/Match, DGet, and the rest). What's the fastest way to perform a lookup of a small table of, say, 30 rows of key-value pairs? Theoretically, it would be most efficient to use a branch table (also known as a jump table). See the wikipedia article for branch tables: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Branch_table. Does Excel/VBA have a way to create a branch table for such lookups?

I would imagine that the title of this thread made little sense, so let me try to explain:

Sheet A has columns A-C populated with data. Column D needs to search Sheet B columns A-C for a match. (ie, see if the data on sheet A is also on sheet B) if this is true, then it needs to return the value of the LAST column of the matched row in Sheet B.

So, if Sheet A R1 A-C is 1,2,3. Sheet A R1 D needs to search Sheet B for 1,2,3. and when it finds it, (for example on row 9) return the value of the last column of Sheet B row 9. The issue is, the last value could be in column R or S or AA, there is just no way of knowing.

I have a dataset of a few hundred rows, but will only provide a small sample of rows for this example.

I need INDEX/MATCH to return the correct values for the subset below.

Column A (Forecast Status) - Column B (Account Name) Commit - Account01 (Row 1) Commit - Account02 (Row 2) Won - Account03 (Row 3) Won - Account04 (Row 4) Won - Account05 (Row 5) Upside - Account06 (Row 6) Lost - Account07 (Row 7) Upside - Account08 (Row 8) Won - Account09 (Row 9) Commit - Account10 (Row 10)

In a new tab, I am creating a 'dashboard' view that will group each of the following:

Commit ONLY Accounts in cell A1 (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 1,2,10) Won ONLY Accounts in B1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 3,4,5,9) Upside ONLY Accounts in C1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 6,8) Lost ONLY Accounts in D1. (Formula to be copied down to retrieve Rows 7)

I have two spreadsheets, one with master file with original data and one that needs to pull in the original data. My issue is all the data to match off of is in the same column, and a number of other files link to the master file, plus it is used externally, so I cannot alter it, and I would rather not create a mock/copy file. Is there a formula that can look for 2 different items within the same column? Would prefer not to use VBA, but if that's the only option I'll take it. I am using Excel 2003.

Here is an example of the setup - I would need the formula to reference off the two different items/categories in the column, so lookup off the 'St. Louis' and following that, lookup off the produce items.

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?

I would like a lookup that takes multiple criteria and that is not an array formula! Unfortunately I decided to use array formulae and my spreadsheet went to over 45mb!! Not good. I've searched the forum for an answer to my questions but couldn't find any! I've attached a spreadsheet as an example. The examples I am using have {Sum(IF)} formulae in it (array) and I would like to change those to others that will not increase the file size so much and will not take too long to calculate.

Basically, I would like a lookup that will return me the Amount Paid and Full Cost based on the person's name and the date. the data and the results table are both on separate sheets. It would be nice to bring that file's size back down to less than 4mb!!

I'm trying to do in Excel 2000 that seemed way easier before I tried to write the formula. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

I have some data setup more or less like this:

1State DeptJan Feb Mar 2California 50128 31 6 3Utah 20119 3 11 4California 20122 49 22 5New York 301 29 51 15 I'm looking to write a formula to retrieve the numerical value located in the cell for a particular month, across from a particular department number and state - so I can plug it into another spreadsheet.

I tried the following formula for January, but I get an "N/A" error when I hit 'Ctrl+Shift+Enter' to use it...

=INDEX(C2:C5,MATCH(1,("Utah"=A2:A5)*("201"=B2:B5),0)) Can you not use static values in this type of formula?

I'm struggling with match, index and lookup functions. I have a formula in column D that calculates the percentage of answers against the total score for that category. The way it calculates enables me to delete rows if they are not needed and still provide a total count and a percentage score.

Now the percentage is returned from a dynamic data set, I want to plot the percentages on a spider/radar chart. Instead of manually creating the chart or using a pivot, I wanted to lookup the percentages (column D) against the category (Column A) in question and plot so the chart updates as the user changes the answers.

I can manage an array formula that returns a value based on a criteria. Simple. But I want to add in an additional couple of criteria. Now I'm stuck....

My sheet looks at a manually entered postcode, finds out what region this is in, and returns a list of postcode I have defined as being in that region. (So the postcode WF1 3JY would return a region of Yorkshire, and list postcodes of WF, BD, L, etc)

I also have a list of engineers, with a column for their home postcode.I want to be able to list all the engineers from my list whose home postcode matches any of the values on the already created list from the postcode and region entered. So far I have this, which finds me all the engineers for just one postcode area.

I have a table with column headings of product ID Numbers (eg.1111) and row headings of Store number (Eg.1) with data showing the time each product was last sold at that store, I need something to consolidate for each store which Product ID's were sold prior to 5pm and what time they were sold.

EG

Store 1 1111 16:40 2222 13:00 Store 2 1111 15:05 3333 16:50

I would like to be able to use the Vlookup function to return more then one value as a result of the criteria. I have a cloumn of dates that populates the X axis of a gantt chart with data whilst the Y axis will be populated by a site reference resulting in a program of work, the Y axis data is the result of a vlookup function. My difficulty arises however with multiple sites, for instance where two or three sites will be visited on the same day. The vlookup function will only return the first value it finds in a range to the formulated cell. The result being a missing site(s) from the gantt chart / work program. is it possible to return all values to a cell i.e. site1, site2, site3. using a vlookup or do i need to use another method of doing this?

making a forumla that will return the second, third ewtc values using VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH. Attached is a dummy file almost identical to the one I'm working in. In the first sheet there's a dependent drop-down list with the values Sub1, Sub2 and Sub3. This corresponds with data in sheet two listed next to these names. The problem is when I try to populate the table below using VLOOKUP etc it just repeats the first row over and over rather than defaulting to the second and third row results

I have a list of data that I want to average the number in column B when there is a match in column A

COLUMN A | COLUMN B alpha | 100 beta | 200 gamma | 300 alpha | 400 beta | 500

What I'm looking to do is return the MEAN of values in column B where column A = alpha. Though, I would settle for returning a list of the values that match the criteria. Index/Match combinations don't seem to be helping me because they only return the first match, I'd like to return all matches.

I have a table of data (say Column1 to Column 5) with multiple rows.

Column 1 to 4 will have the lookup values in multiple rows and Column 5 data should be picked up using vlookup or other lookup function.

I managed to somehow bring all these lookup values in (Column 1 to 4) in a single column in another sheet. I am now trying to use some lookup or other functions to match this single column and pick column 5 data in original sheet. Result i am expecting is lookup value in first column and next to it column 5 value.

It is basically a lookup wherein lookup value is spread over multiple rows and columns and result column is fixed. I tried using vlookup, but lookup value column and column number had to change every time when i moved from column1 to 4.

I want to create a certification only list on a separate tab of training that has been completed where a certification has been issued (as indicated by a "Y" in the "Certification?" column on the training tracking tab) and then populate from some of the fields vs. all of the fields.

What I have now, only pulls the first occurence, not all occurences. I saw that I could have identified the multiple columns that needed to be populated, but it didn't work either, so I'm fine putting a separate vlookup in each column.

I have some data which I update every now and again. Then I extract and clean up and currently have it output to 4 columns.

The four columns currently looks like this:

A | B | C | D 1 name name2 stats stats2 2 .... 3 ....

Each column is then populated with a decent amount of names and stats, and the same name occurs multiple times. I'm looking up a specific name in the A column, and can extract the stats in C fine using INDEX/MATCH, but it only returns the data from the first instance the name occurs. I've googled it a bit and believe I could possibly wrap my head around returning multiple instances.

However, there are a couple of other criteria for my extraction of the stats which makes me believe I'm in way over my head. The data is in chronological order, with the newest on the bottom. I'm wanting to extract the stats in inversed order so starting from bottom going upwards, if that makes sense. Further, preferably I'd want to limit the amount of extraction to X amounts. And lastly to make it really complicated, for the newest entries stats are not yet available so only the names (column A and B) are populated, I need it to skip those entries, since, obviously, there are no stats there to extract, and I wouldnt want to end up with a lot of blank cells in my summary.
