# Search Table & Return Heading Of Found Value

Sep 8, 2007

In a large spreadsheet that receives external data, I have codes (U, N or V) allocated at various times to different rows as shown in sample worksheet attached. Elsewhere in the spreadsheet, I need to display (for later export) these codes along with their respective number in a sorted list. Please review the attached:

In the spreadsheet you'll see a column of codes, the next column is the data reference number, then to the right is three columns, one for each code. As displayed in the sample book attached, each Code column is to display the data reference number (from column 2)that matches that column's code.

What formula can I use to list these numbers in the appropriate columns?

## Return Heading Ascociated With Date Found In Table

Mar 1, 2008

Attached is a very small sample of a workbook that looks at community impact; before, during and after a project.

The source data (not shown) is down loaded from a system that can only supply the date in reverse order (see column A).
i.e. 20080229 = 29-Feb-2008. I've applied a conversion in column "C"....

= DATE(LEFT(\$A2,4),MID(\$A2,5,2),RIGHT(\$A2,2))

The 'properly' formatted date is then used to determine when on the scale of observation that given date falls.
e.g. the number of weeks before, during and after the project.

This is determined by the 18 week date 'matrix/ array' in columns F to X the red box is used to input the project start date, (& assumes the project runs to its normal 6 week time scale, it get REALLY messy if the boss prolongs or cuts short the project!)

From the result various figures and a graph using the properly formatted date are calculated, produced and presented showing....

The scale of the problem {before}
The impact of the project {during}
The lasting efftectivness {after}

You can see that I've managed a 'workaround' for the limit on the number of IF statements allowed in one formula using a rolling formula in columns; B then Z - AQ. This works OK, but!! combine that with the other formulae doing the impact calculations and 20000+ rows of data (with the acssociated workings in B + Z-AQ) the effect is to make make the file over 15Mb for 1!! worksheet, (the limit for emailing on the jobs system is 3Mb!!) & just to really make it scary sometime there are 2 projects on the go at once.

Before I created the attached the user responsible for these graphs and calculations manually counted dates & typed/copied & pasted the week number/tile, initially several days work followed by half a day every weekly update!

## Return Row Heading With Max Value In Table

Mar 23, 2014

I uploaded a simplified version of the workbook I'm manipulating for reference. I'm looking for a formula where I can get the ROW heading of a table to be returned based on the max value of a certain column. My column headings in the table are months. I have separate place in the workbook where I have the Months listed in a Column (A9:A......) and in Cells (B9:B....) I want to return the row heading name from the table. The tricky part is that the column headings don't always stay in same place, so Jan isn't always in A1, sometimes it is in B1 or C1 of the table.

Essentially from my months listed is separate part of the workbook. In the cell next to each month I want to match that month with column in the table. In that column find the max value and return the row heading.

## Search Sheets For Value & Return Sheet Number When Found

Feb 16, 2008

## Search A Table, Return An Array

Sep 24, 2009

0000AAAAABBBBBCCCCCDDDDD
1111SugarRaisinDirt
2222MilkWaterWaterFlour
3333FlourSugarDirt
4444EggsWaterFlourSugar
5555WaterMilkDirt

I looked for a way to represent my data in a cleaner way than this but couldn't find any tools....a point in the right direction would be helpful. I guess the old plug-in that converted Excel->HTML isn't available?

Column A is a finished product and B-D are the ingredients to make it however values in Column A are also ingredients (sometimes multiple times). I want a formula that searches for values in Column A within the table B1:D5 and returns an array, if possible, of the finished products where Column A was used.

For example, searching for Sugar would return "Flour, Water". Searching for Water would return "Milk, Eggs" (I'd rather not have Milk listed twice but beggars can't be choosers).

## Vlookup: Search For Value In SECOND Column Of Table Array And Return Value From FIRST

Oct 7, 2008

I'm looking for a formula to search for a value in the SECOND (instead of first) column of a table array and return a value in the same row from FIRST (instead of the same or another) column in the table array. Formula would be searching for the unique production order number in the column B and return production line id from the column A.

A1 production line_id
B1 poduction_order_number

A2 L1
A3 L2
A4 L1

B2 505212
B3 504234
B4 505663

I was trying vlookup(504234;B2:A4;2;0) to make formula go search from right columns to the left but then excel is switching the search table to A2:B4 and gives #N/D!
One remark-there is no possibility to switch these 2 columns to simplify. I have to leave them as they are.

## Complex List - Search For Text And Return Value In Table

Jan 20, 2014

I have a complex list of text (a chart of accounts) with various roll ups for subtotals on one worksheet, and monthly download on another worksheet showing the name of the account and the value. I wish to use match the text to return the value in the front sheet and avoid taking the simple route of linking the cells in case additions are added during the year.

I've tried using IF and VLOOKUP formulas without success - i guess becasue I cannot sort the table in descending order?

What would be the best sort of formula to search using the text, and return a value on the same row?

## Excel 2010 :: Return Search Results From A Table

Apr 5, 2014

I have my data arranged in a table on sheet1 as shown below.

Columns B to H contain the hours each person normally works on the days of the week Sun to Sat. In columns I to O are the hours that each person has booked as holiday for that week.

On sheet2 I would like to be able to enter a holiday day in C1. In A3 to A15 I would then have a list of all the people who will be working on that day and in C3 to C15 have a list of the people who are on holiday so the output on sheet 2 would look like this.

Basically I'm after the formulas for A3 and C3 that can be copied down the column depending on how big my table gets. I am using Excel 2010.

## Find Value In Row, Then Return Heading Above It

Jan 12, 2010

I have a 10x10 table. First row contains column titles (plain text, hardcoded). Each line below them has a 1 in *just one* cell. So, each line contains 9 zeros and one 1.

In the 11th column I want to check which column has the 1 in it and return the column's title. So, if the 5th row has a 1 in cell E5 I should get, in K5, the value of E1 (the title of the E column that is).

Feb 21, 2014

Encryption algorythim.xlsx

Here is my scenario I have all this data i want to search in. In the rows there are repeating values and in the columns they do not repeat.

As seen in the attached i am able to give a column and row by title and then get the intersecting cell data from that. (Encryption lookup)

What i want to do is give the column tittle and row value and get back the row title. (Decryption Lookup)

This shouldn't be too hard seeing that the data in the columns has no repeats.

Nov 18, 2013

I have a number of dates (columns) and under each date there is the demand value (Rows). Also, i have a column that has the current inventory. what im trying to do is to keep on adding the demand in one row (i.e multiple dates) until the sum just exceeds the inventory. After that, i would like to return sum the date at which we stopped adding. the point of this excercise is to see at which month will our inventory deplete according to the demand. Below is an example solved by hand.
