# Search For Value In Multiple Column And Row Array And Return Value In First Column?

Dec 16, 2013

I have an array 20 Rows x 42 Columns, which contains a competition draw.

I need to search this array for a unique value and return whatever the time is in the first column on the same row as the value appears, and enter it into column C in the Womens Times sheet.

I also want to return into column D the court number from row 3.

The reason i want this automated is as teams enter / withdraw we may need to drag the games from court to court to fill gaps, so i want the Womens Times sheet to update accordingly.

I have been messing around with index and match, but cannot quite get it to return what i need.

I have attached an example ... on the sheet "Womens Times" in column A there is a list of game numbers ( #1W etc etc) indicating womens game #1 and so on. The main sheet i am using also has a seperate tab for the mens games, hence the designator of W or M on the end of the game number.

## 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.

## Nested Index / Match Array - Return Value In Column C When Matching Column A And B But With Few More Criteria

Jun 7, 2014

I am trying to use a nested INDEX and MATCH array formula to return the value in column C when matching column A and column B, but with a few more criteria.

The range containing all the data

A
B
C

1
Cat 1
January 1, 2014
John

[Code] ..........

I am looking for the array formula to return the name of the person in column C who is in Cat 1 after the date in column B.

For example;
C7 should return "John" because B7 requests "January 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C8 should return "John" because B8 requests "February 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C9 should return "Andrew" because B9 requests "August 15, 2014", which is after the value in B4

The best try I had for the formula in C7 was

{(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$C\$4,MATCH(1,(\$B\$1:\$B\$4>=B7)*(A\$1:\$A\$4=A7),0),3))}

This brings back "John" as desired in C7, but when copying down the table into C8 and C9 both C8 and C9 return Andrew.

I guess this is due to my ">=" condition in the Match formula and it is returning "Andrew" because "Andrew" is also after the date requested, but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get it to work.

## Search A Column Of Dates & Return Data From Another Column

Jun 8, 2009

I am trying to get a formula that will search one column range “B” and pull data from another, “D”. Dates are down column “B” and some of those dates are repeated several times. In column “D” there is only one piece of data (a number) entered for each day. Eg, if 08/06/2009 has been entered 3 times in column “A”, there will only be data entered in 1 of the cells of column “D” and blank cells in the other 2.

Column B -- Column D
07/06/09 -- 54000
08/06/09
08/06/09 -- 62000
08/06/09
09/06/09 -- 61000

I couldn’t get the LOOKUP function to work properly, as there are duplicate dates in column “B” and I often got a result of 0 returned.

As I’ve only got 1 piece of data added in column “D” per day and any duplicate days would just have blank cells in “D”, I can actually get a SUMIF function to work, SUMIF(B3:B60,DATE(2009,6,8),D3:D60). Although it does work, it doesn’t feel right using it and I would prefer a formula that would return just the one cell, instead of the sum of a range of cells.

## An Array And Return The Same Row In Another Column

Nov 9, 2007

I have an array with a lot of rows and columns filled with different codes.

I need to look into this array for one specific number and return the value in the same row in an specific column.

I can't use Vlookup in this case because it needs to have the values you are looking for in the first column and my values are spread in different columns.

## Finding Value In Array - Return Value On Same Row But Different Column

Feb 7, 2012

I have an array that is 60x100 (column x row).

I'm trying to search for a value in that array and return the value on the same row, but shifted to the right one column.

Example: If my value is found in D63, I want to return the value in E63.

I've been messing with Index, Match, and Offset, but I can't get anything working.

## 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.

## Macro To Search Column And Return All Rows Containing Value

Sep 13, 2013

I have a workbook that has 2 sheets. The main sheet is titled Data, and the second sheet is titled Archive.

I need a macro that will let me search all of Column A on Sheet2(Archive) and copy all rows whose Column A contains the value I input into Sheet1 B19, and paste it on Sheet1(Data) starting in cell A21. It can replace any information already on those rows on Sheet1 and I want to copy the information from Sheet2 not cut it.

This part isn't necessary but would be great, on Sheet2 in column D there is a Date it would be great to have another macro that would let me pull the same information as above but only pull a certain number of rows starting with the most recent dates.

## Search Partial String, Return Value In Next Column, Vba

Feb 13, 2008

I would like to search cells in column D for the partial string, "PIPE," (A full string may look like this: 'PIPE, 24"ODx0.375"WT API-5LX-65,ERW OR SMLS'). Then, if it's there, return the value "LF" in the corresponding cell in column C. If that string isn't found, then I'd like it to return "EA".

I know this seems pretty easy, but there's a small problem. The word "BENT PIPE," could be in Column D, in which case, I would want it to return "EA" instead of "LF".

## Search Common Data From One Column And Return Corresponding Data From Another Column

I have two columns of data and what I would like to do is have excel look over one column ( I5-I379) and for each cell that has say 30 in it I want it to return the value from a corresponding column (G5-G379), to form a separate column.......is this possible?

## Index / Array Return A Value From Same Column In Another Sheet

Jun 2, 2009

I am currently looking at a simple data set spanning a few years of annual average data. I want to create a front sheet to show people in what year the maximum value was reached for each site but am having trouble returning the values......

I want the formula to say - find the summary sheet max value cell in the main data sheet row 2 (for XYZ) and return the corresponding column from row 1 (year). I've got myself in a muddle trying to create array data from the index function and want something simple. There are only about 30 rows so am happy to manually select the rows in question and repeat the formula entry so it doesn't need to be fancy.

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

## Search For A Phrase In Column - Function Return Error

Feb 18, 2013

I am trying to search for a phrase in a particular column but the excel search function is returning !Value as an error...

Both fields are text so nit sure what is wrong here.

I have a list of cities that i want to cross reference across a cloumn of notes on another sheet. So, I really want to search for the city (Sheet1 Cell A1) in Notes Sheet2 Cell A1) and I want to return it in Sheet1 Cell B1 Whether it exisits in the notes. I then want to copy this down my list of cities in Sheet1 Column a.

## Search In Mulitple Columns And Return Corresponding Column/Row Result

## Search Row For Text And Return Column Letter Of First Occurrence?

Dec 14, 2011

Is there a way to have a formula search an entire row containing certian text, for example "x" and have the formula return the letter of the first column that text is found?

## Lookup Function - Return Value From Column That Relates To Array

Apr 12, 2013

I would like to write a formula to return a value from a column that relates to an array within which my lookup value exists. See the tables below:

ID
V1
V2
V3

105
27
3
149

[Code] .......

The tables above are on different sheets within a workbook. I would like to write a formula that returns the "ID" numbers from column "A" in the first table, based on values in columns B-D in that first table, into column "C" in the second table. For example, in this case, the ID number that corresponds with the value "12491" would be "109", since 12491 corresponds with 109 in the first table.

FYI, the "Value" numbers in the second table are calculated based on their rank (high-low) within the matrix in the first table.

I tried the INDEX-MATCH function, but it doesn't seem to work if I'm trying to find a value within a 2-D array- it only works if I'm looking in a single column.

## Return Highest Value Of Column Headings With Matching Text In Array?

Mar 7, 2013

I have an array of data with multiple codes stored in text...

I want to set a formula in a cell to look for all instances of specific text in an array. Then compare the value of all of the column headings, which are numbered across the top of the array, which contain a match in that column and return the highest value.

Example: 10x10 array, columns 1,3, and 5 contain "text" somewhere in those columns. Formula would return 5.

## Lookup/Match: Compare A1 For The Values In Column B, Then Return The Corresponding Cell (column C) In Column D

Jan 31, 2008

I've been searching the forums for this problem but I can't seem to find any answers. Anyway, this is the problem. See screenshot.

I want to compare A1 for the values in column B, then return the corresponding cell (column C) in column D.
e.g. D1 = 2, D2 = 1, D3 = 4, D4 = 5 and D5 = 3.

## Search Column With Multiple Conditions?

Feb 18, 2014

I want to display the cell content after it has verified two things: 1. It pertains to the running month 2. It has maximum serial number The file enclosed is self explanatory. The formula would be dragged as every day data is likely to be added. I have written a formula, but I get error.

## Return A Count From Multiple Columns - Each Column Has Multiple Answers

Sep 28, 2012

Want a single count of multiple columns based on the columns selected value. Data is in text format.

Have tried multiple COUNTIF statements and have tried using pivot table (Excel 2010) both only give me total counts for all. I think I need an OR statement somewhere, but not sure where?

In other words, if a single record has an "any" in the any fields or a "yes" in the yes fields, I want to to count that as one record.

Sample data:

Pegnancy Smoke
Pregnancy Alcohol
Pregnancy Marijuana
Pregnancy Powder
Stress Cigarettes
Stress Marijuana
Stress Alcohol
Stress Medication

[Code] .....

## 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.xlsxâ€Ž

## 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).

## 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
