# Rounding Result Causes VLOOKUP Failure

Jan 25, 2007

Round Result Used As Vlookup Lookup_value Does Work For 6% in attached spreadsheet. I am an experienced user of Excel and have never come across something I could not solve before but this has stumped me. The issue is now sorted using different formulas but I do not know why the attached has #N/A errors in the Yellow highlighted cells.

## Formula With Text Function Rounding Up Result

Dec 8, 2007

I have the following formula: =TEXT(( SUM(D98,D117,D136))/12,"0")&"' - "&MOD((SUM(D98,D117,D136)),12)&""""

This formula adds the inches in D98, D117 & D136 and divides it by 12 to get the footage of the 3 cells. The problem occurs when you reach the half foot mark...for instance say D98 was 2-0 (24 inches), D117 was 3-0(36 inches) and D136 was 2-6(30 inches) added up this comes out to 7-6(90 inches)...the formula then rounds the footage up to 8 feet...this can understandably be frustrating when I'm trying to get an exact measurement...is there a way to force the formula not to round up?

## VLOOKUP Formula Dragdown Copies Previous Cell Result Instead Of Unique Result

Jun 10, 2014

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

## VLOOKUP-result #N/A

Jul 5, 2009

I have a problem:

Cell A1 has this formula: =MID(B11;8;3)
with this value: 428

Cell A2 has a lookup-formula =VLOOKUP(A1;Tabell;2)
Result is #N/A
Why??

If I overwright the formula in A1 (the MID-formula) with 428 I get the result I expect.

## Vlookup N/a Result

Feb 21, 2007

## Banker's Rounding Or Scientific Rounding

Jul 9, 2008

I am trying to round similar to Banker's Rounding or Scientific Rounding but I can't find a consistent formula that works perfect with decimals.

Using three decimal places for all the samples, I can get 0.0785 to round to 0.078 but 0.1785 wants to round to 0.179 instead of staying 0.078. Or 0.0005 will round to 0 but 0.5115 wants to round to 0.511 instead of 0.512.

Here is a list of sample numbers along with desired results:
.0785 should be .078
.5115 should be .512
.5035 should be .504
.0005 should be 0
.0025 should be .002
.0194 should be .019
.0195 should be .02
.0135 should be .014
.0115 should be .012
.8115 should be .812

I cannot find a formula which gives me all of these results. Here is a list of the formulas I have tried so far (NOTE: cell A2 is the working cell in my worksheet where I enter the number to be rounded)

1) =MROUND(A2,0.001)

3) =ROUND(A2,3)

4) =IF(ISERROR(IF(MOD(MID(A2,4,1),2)=1,CEILING(A2,0.001),FLOOR(A2,0.001))),0,IF(MOD(MID(A2,4,1),2)=1,CEILING(A2,0.001),FLOO R(A2,0.001)))

5) =EVEN(A2)

6) =ROUNDUP(A2,3)

7) =ROUNDDOWN(A2,3)

## How To Get Vlookup To Return The 3rd / 4th / 5th Ect Result

Dec 9, 2013

Been working on this problem for a while, I need to have a vlookup (or other function) return locations based off of a concatenate (for unique identifiers). Only issue is that the concatenate formula creates doubles which returns the same location for each vlookup. I have attached an example file.

## Vlookup: Result In Sheet1

Apr 27, 2009

This is the scenario----------------------------

Column A in sheet1
1101
1201
1301
1401
1501
1601

Column A Column B In sheet2
1101 | 14211
1101 | 14541
1101 | 14857....................

Mar 18, 2009

Below is the data I have.

Say I need to get values from Column C. VLOOKUP'ed values return the first value, but i need it to move on to the next result if the first one = 0.
so I will get

123 - not 0, but 0.22
234 - 0.1
345 - 0.....

## Skipping The 1st Result In VLookup

## VLookup With Concatenate Not Producing Result

[Code] ......

Trying to get columns 10, 11 & 13 to join so it says "Mr Noddy Bigshoes" (Salutation, Forename & Surname).

## VLookup True Result Rounds Down Not Up

Mar 12, 2014

I have a formula that I'm trying to utilize VLookup to determine a specific bonus. The issue I'm having is when looking for the closes match, it is returning the value below where it should because it's rounding down. For example, the string I have reads:

=VLOOKUP(S5,'Rep Daily'!A1:B61,2,TRUE)

The value it's defining is 17.7485, so it's returning the bonus for 17.5 instead of 17.75. Even when I use the =Roundup function, it's showing 17.75 in the cell but the actual value of the cell is 17.7485 so VLookup is returning the lower of the two values.

## How To Replace #N/A With No Entry For A VLOOKUP Result

Sep 24, 2009

I have put a VLOOKUP in place for a range of cells. Where the referenced cell has no entry it puts #N/A in the sheet. This is causing me further problems, is there a way to get all entries which equal this to leave the cell blank?

## If / Vlookup Display Result Not Formula

Dec 8, 2009

Hopefully you will be able to help again. Is it possible to do a vlookup that references data on other tabs within the worksheet so that the result of the formula is in the cell not the formula.

So if my vlookup was =vlookup(a2,\$a\$1:\$b\$12,3,0) and the result was john smith i want just john smith in the cell. I know about copy and paste values but i was looking for a more automatic way. One that doesn't need intervention.

## Removing #N/A Result In Vlookup Formula

Aug 12, 2009

how to return a blank or null value when the vlookup formula would normally return a #N/A? I am using the False range_lookup argument to get an exact match.

## VLOOKUP (LEFT) Returns Result Off By One Row

Jan 31, 2014

Code: =VLOOKUP((LEFT(C4,6)),'Data from 7500'!\$B\$16:\$G\$195,6,TRUE)

And it works great, except that the data returned is off by one row. For example, the correct value for the sample name in B107 is located in G107, but the formula returns the value in cell G106. I've tried changing the TRUE to FALSE and that returns #N/A.

## Using Result If Index &amp; Match In Vlookup

Dec 25, 2007

I have used in Index & Match formula in column G as follows :

## VLOOKUP Displays The Formula Instead Of The Result

May 5, 2004

My VLOOKUP formula is displaying in the cell instead of the result. The formula is VLOOKUP(A1, income_codes, 2, FALSE) and in the formula editor the result (00017) is calculated correctly.

However the cell displays =VLOOKUP(A1, income_codes, 2, FALSE) instead of the answer 00017.

My view options are not set to display formulas. The codes are formatted as text in the range income_codes as they start with zeros.

## Return Cell Below VLOOKUP Result

## RoundUp Vlookup Result If Greater Than X

Jan 25, 2008

I have a formula that calculates a revenue per day by taking total revenue devided by total days, from that I have another cell doing a VLOOKUP on that to find what tier that value falls under almost like a grade book, however I need the division to be rounded up if greater than x.xx5 because when I do the VLOOKUP sometimes it drops the product to the lower tier when I needed it rounded up. example:

=IF(ISERROR(Data!H6/Data!E6),"",(Data!H6/Data!E6))

if the value of those were to actually equal 1.256 I want to be able to have the VLOOKUP return the tier for 1.26 not 1.25

## Hyperlink To VLookup Result In Multiple Worksheets

Jan 31, 2014

I have a vlookup worksheet like described in this thread: [URL] .... This works perfect. I would like to be able to jump to the vlookup result using a hyperlink.

In the thread worksheet the formula in C2 is like
=VLOOKUP(A2,INDIRECT("'"&INDEX(\$G\$2:\$G\$9,MATCH(TRUE,COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&\$G\$2:\$G\$9&"'!C2:C100"),A2)>0;0))&"'!C2:D100"),2,0)

In cell D2 I placed the formula (font: webdings )

(Due to the Dutch Excel I use I replaced ";" to ",")

The link works because I hardcoded "Sheet2" into the formula where the result can be found. But it would be much nicer if I didn't had to put the sheetname into this formula.

Is it possible to use range G2:G8 like in the first formula to achieve this? I guess you have to use INDEX and/or INDIRECT but I barely understand the first formula ...

## Get Cell Reference As VLookup Result Of Different Sheet?

Dec 12, 2012

A -> SNO
B -> Customer Name
C -> Product Name
D -> MODEL

## VLOOKUP Sorta Works But Result Is Actually One Cell Up / Or Down?

Jun 12, 2014

I am trying to use a VLOOKUP on a table of manufacturing die cuts of certain sizes.

A formula tells me a number close to the die that is available. The rule is to use the next larger size die cut for the job.

An example of die sizes are:

Die Sizes
108.0
112.7
114.3
117.5

My formula gives me 114.22, therefore, I should use the 114.3 die.

However, the VLOOKUP says 112.7, not the answer I want.

How can I adjust this VLOOKUP to give me the next size down? I am guessing a IF, but I am not the best at writing IF statements.

## Vlookup Returns Data From One Row Above The Desired Result

Mar 18, 2007

I have a three or four letter abbreviation of a last name in A1. Column C contains a list of Last Names; column D contains a list of corresponding First Names; and column E contains a formula concantenating the First Names and Last Names from columns C & D.

I have the following formula in B1:

=VLOOKUP(A1,C1:E44,3,1)

I am attempting to match up the three or four letter abbreviation with the concatenated list to return the full name (First and Last) in cell B1, however, I'm not getting the desire result. I keep getting the name in the row just above the name I want.

## How To Return Blank Result If No Match For VLOOKUP

Jun 25, 2008

I'm using this formula (thanks to dafan & HalfAce [url]
=IF(VLOOKUP(\$A177,\$A\$736:\$C\$787,3,FALSE)=0,"",VLOOKUP(\$A177,\$A\$736:\$I\$787,3,FALSE))
to return the value located in the 3rd column of the range when the value in the 1st column of the range matches the data in A177.

However, there isn't a match for the data in A178 in the range, so the formula returns "#N/A". I would like the cell containing the formula to remain blank in those instances.

## Find Cell Address Of VLOOKUP Result And Replace With New Value

Jun 21, 2013

I am using VLOOKUP to find the size of a cam to be installed in a tablet press, based on the product code it will be running.

The array has two columns: (W) Product Code, (X) Cam Size.

Array: W4:X437

The user selects the Product Code from a drop-down list in cell E5.

The resulting Cam Size is displayed in cell E7. The VLOOKUP works fine.

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(E5,W4:X437,2,FALSE),"")

Occasionally, the cam size has to be updated. The user would then select a new cam size from a drop-down list in cell E9.

I have a "Update Cam Size" command button.

What I need to happen is for the value in E9 to replace the value in the array that is displayed in E7. Obviously, I have to know the location of the cell in the array, but I can't figure that part out. I've tried ADDRESS and MATCH functions, but it comes back with "#N/A" Value not available error.

## How To Get Excel Cell That Contains VLookup Formula To View Result In Userform

Feb 26, 2014

what I would like to do is view a cell result in my userform with out deleting my formula

It works perfect from the excel side but I just cant get it right from the user form side

Ok so cell D6 contains a vlookup formula. I want the vlookup result to appear in my userform. I can get this to work but it overrides the vlookup formula with the result. This means that when I go to use it again it just shows the same result.This is what I have:

Cell D8 has a Combobox with a list of names to select from

this is the formula in cell D6 =VLOOKUP(D8,B107:I754,2,FALSE) This retrieves the selected customers account number from the combobox. I need my userform to display the account number with out erasing the formulas because I will need to search for more account numbers after.

I have named the textbox in my userform Customeraccountb
