# Sorting And Retrieving Data Based On Two Columns?

Oct 19, 2012

I am working on a new budget spreadsheet that I am creating. I want to accurately calculate credit card expenses. As everyone who has a credit card knows, charges made this month are not due to be paid until next month. To make matters more complex, charges made from (for example) January 20 until February 19 are not due to be paid until March 20. With that in mind, I created a spreadsheet with a different tab for each month. Each tab has a place to put in all expenses. Here is an example:

date
Category
Expenses
Remarks

[Code].....

Obviously, The above example is from January. IN the February tab, I want to calculate everything in the "Expense" column that has a date in the "Date" Column before Jan 20 and where it says "Kohls - Frank" in the Category column. Of course, in the March tab, I would need to grab all of the "Kohls - Frank" expenses after Jan 20 from the January tab, and everything before Feb 20 from the February tab.

I figured out how to add up everything with the following formula: =SUMIF(Jan!A:A,("<="&DATE(2013,1,20)&E32),Jan!C:C) How can I filter on the Category tab?

## Looping Through Databased And Retrieving Data Based On 2 Variables

Feb 6, 2009

Another VBA problem I am having to need help with...

Andy Pope and DonkeyOte graciously helped me with the first stage here:

http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...-a-time-2.html

where I was trying to loop through 1000 records at a time and retrieve data from my Oracle database based on a single Field ID.

This is the code that ended up working...

## Sorting Rows Based On Columns

Jan 20, 2009

I have a worksheet with columns of Unique Words and corresponding Frequency of Occurrence for several years. I would like to sort the data so the rows match up on same Unique Words across years.

I am using Excel 2007.

## Variable Column Range Based On Current Selection For Sorting Columns

May 16, 2014

The first line of the code chooses the columns to select; all columns until there is no value. From there I need to have it sort those columns based on row 1. The problem is that the columns chosen are variable. It could be columns I:N (as shown below) or column G:Z or any other combination. (The code below was recorded if that matters at all.)

## Sorting One Giant Column Into Multiple Columns Based On Cell Color?

Sep 3, 2013

I was handed a pdf of some leads by a co-worker. Finally, I got the data into excel but it's in a pretty useless format... 30,000 rows of contact info with no rhyme or reason. I want to upload this into our CRM, but I need to get all the different bits of info into separate columns. I'm no excel pro, but I managed to use an Excel plugin called ASAP tools to bring some order to this chaos... All names have a blue cell color, all titles have a green cell color, work phone is red, and so on.

Does anyone know a way that I can sort these into separate columns? I've trying playing with the Filter function, but it hides rows which makes the output useless for my purposes.

## Sorting Data Into Several Columns?

Aug 14, 2014

I have an issue with some data that I need to sort into several columns. Basically, I have a column that has data listed in each cell like this; A 567 T 1 D3. What I want to be able to do is sort that data into several columns. I am not sure how to do this at all. I have attached my data to be looked at. I have already started the process but manually, and I don't feel like having to do this manually as this is very time consuming considering I am trying to sort the data into ~1927 rows and 5 columns.

## Sorting Data Into Columns

Aug 5, 2009

I need help with either a formula or macro for sorting data into specific columns. I need the entries under the headings Ar,Bj... to be sorted into the correct columns. To add to the problem, the data may not be exactly the same as the heading.

Attached is an simple example of a spreadsheet where the top is the original and the bottom is what I need the final outcome to be. The data is pasted from a different spreadsheet and will be changing each time.

## Sorting Data With Locked Columns

Feb 20, 2009

I have a spreadsheet on lets say 10 columns, now col 1 and 9 are locked so they cant be selected. Col 2-8 can be sorted by selecting them, but information in col 10 does not sort.

Question is there a way of connecting the cells in col 10 to the cell in lets say col 2, so thay when you sort the rows and cols between 2 and 8, the cells on col 10 are sorted as well As i have noticed you cant sort two differenr selections...???

## Sorting Columns To Align Data

Jan 16, 2012

I have to filter data in one column and have it align with data in another column. I need to do this because I have hundreds of product descriptions that I need to match up with the appropriate images. All of the image names will be like the first row (1244-?????.jpg) The problem I am running into the text data I am downloading is not matching up with the images. I usually have more images than text and sometimes I will have text that has no corresponding image.

## Sorting Data That Has Blanks In Some Columns

Feb 15, 2010

This is driving me crazy. I have a sheet with 5 columns, and 13k + rows of data.

I attached an example of how its is formatted...

The problem is, in column A "DBA" and D, "Address", some of the data contain 2 rows, and others contain 3 rows.

When I try to sort by DATE, for example, it ends up splitting up the addresses alphabetically...

How can I sort this data, by any of the columns, while still keeping the ADDRESS together?

I hope this makes sense to someone because it is driving me NUTS.

## Pivot - Retrieving Other Columns From The Same Row That Has Minimum Value

May 9, 2014

1) I have created a pivot table where one of the value is minimum of a "Rate". So far, so good.

2) Is there a way I can access other column values from the same row "MIN" value was picked up from ? Or I have do a VLOOKUP & INDEX ?

Attached is my excel that has sample data and what I need.

## Sorting Rows Of Data Into Columns With Headings

Aug 30, 2013

I have hundreds of rows of data which I need to sort into headings in a new tab.

E.g Column D has about 40 names which occur many times. Column G has 4 digit numbers which are unique.

I want to create in a new tab a column for each of these 40 names, using that name as the heading and then list the 4 digit numbers unders that heading. So if the name name "John" appears 20 times in Column D, it will get a heading in the new sheet and there will be 20 unique numbers listed below it from the data in Column G.

## Sorting Multi-rows & Columns Of Data In Groups

Mar 30, 2007

I realize that the easier resolve to this request is to use Access & we are moving to that application.

I have included a worksheet as an example.

We have a 'work in progress' (WIP) worksheet that contains 12 rows of data per job. Need to know how (or if) you can sort by the "Job #:" value while maintaining the group of information necessary for each individual job.

Not a normal sort because the values aren't entered in typical side-by-side row & column format.

## Sorting Data Based In Word

Jan 21, 2008

if there is anyway of sorting data from a word document into an excel spreadheet?

I want to sort be able to export the data according to the column on the far left hand side (month), into excel.

## Retrieving Cells Based On Dropdown List?

Jan 13, 2014

I want to be able to pick a word from a drop down list and for related information to appear in the next cell. I just don't know the function to do it.

Here's an example: I have a list of first names and second names in adjacent columns.
Excel question 1.jpg

In the 2nd sheet I have a drop down list of the first names:

Excel question 2.jpg

Is there a function to make the corresponding 2nd name appear in B1 when a first name is selected. I've seen examples where INDIRECT is used to create a dependent drop down list in B1 but I'd like the information to automatically appear.

## Data Sorting - Formula Based On Multiple Other Cells

I have some cells that are summed with total cost.... now i need to sort the totaled cells? How do i sort a cell that has a formula based on multiple other cells?

## Retrieving Cell Values Based On User Defined Number Range?

Mar 31, 2014

So I have 2 sheets from a much larger worksheet where I wish for the first sheet to extract a row of values, one at a time from the second sheet using a range of numbers I enter as reference for where to look for the data. Sheet 1 can be thought of as a summary page and Sheet 2 is where data is stored.

I need to first check if any data under Sheet 2 column B fall within a specified range of numbers and if any of those numbers are found I want it to grab the largest and latest number from that range and pull all the data from certain columns in that same row and place it into Sheet 1, one column value at a time.

Sheet 1 A1 = A range of numbers as text. 10-15, 16-20 etc Only one range is entered. This also tells me what results I'm looking at.
Sheet 1 B4:B14 = Destination cells for the individual data I'm wanting to pull from Sheet 2 columns H:P. B4 wants H, B5 wants I, B6 wants J etc

Sheet 2 column A = A3:A102 are numbered 1:100.
Sheet 2 column B = A series of numbers anywhere from 10-70. Always in sequence and they can repeat. 10,10,11,12,13,14,15,15,15,16 etc. Ranges from B3:B102. Only one number per cell.
Sheet 2 columns H:P = Data in H3:P102 I want to extract to Sheet 1 B4:B14.

Now lets say I want a formula for Sheet 1 B4 which wants a value in Sheet 2 H. If Sheet 1 A1 = 10-15, I want to check whether Sheet 2 column B has any values equaling those and then tell me which row that last number appeared in.
Example: Sheet 2 B4=14, Sheet 2 B5=14, Sheet 2 B6=16. Use B5. (B6 is outside range and B4 isn't the last time the 14 appears.)

Then, knowing B5 is the value I want, find which row it is in (row 5 in this example) or use the number in A5 (3) and then find my way to column H (H5) where the value I want to pull is.

Example 2: Sheet 2 B4=14, Sheet 2 B5=14, Sheet 2 B6=16. Use B5.
Sheet 2 H4=10, Sheet 2 H5=32, Sheet 2 H6=42. Place "32" from H5 into Sheet 1 B4.

I'd like to also have some error control so I'm not trying to pull data from blank cells if it's relevant. Maybe check if Sheet 2 X3=0 and if it is, do nothing as no data appears if the cell is 0.

I have put a lot of time into trying to solve this myself but I feel way out of my depth. I've tried going step by step but I can't seem to figure out which functions are relevant and also things like how to return the range that the A1 values appear in or if using MAX, not having it return values outside of A1's range also.

## Retrieving Data From A Website

Jul 31, 2013

retrieving data from financial website databases like yahoofinance.com and bloomberg.com. I'm trying to make an automatic stock analysis model to read from the website database and retrieve the data into excel sheets. For example, when opening the excel model the user gets a popup to enter the stock ticker, the user enters the ticker and gets a set of data. Is this do-able in excel?

## Retrieving Data From Text?

Sep 22, 2013

i have a long list of what were once file names in excel that i need to retrieve data from. i have attached an example file with 2 file names which i recomend to view while reading this request.the file has 2 spreadsheets. the first one is just the file name in the format in which i recieve it. the second one is a table that i need to fill out from the data in those file names.

i have a problem with the following columns in spreadsheet 2:

1. column C: i have the command to copy the site name as it is to this column, but what i need is for the program to read if the site name is ZANUAH or ADORA and then write only Z or A. note that these two site names have a different number of charecters in them.

2. columnd D: similar problem. i need it to read the lab name and write AL if its MAGAMA, BA if its Ben-Ari and SH if its shafir. i have the command for excel to simply copy the word, but how do i make it write the letters that represent the lab name rather than the lab name itself?

3. column E: the report number is the 6 digit number in the file name. i have the command which retrieves it, but it has trouble when the length of the number changes. its important to note that sometimes the number might contain non-numerical characters like 219641-1.

4. column O:i have the command to get the data from the parentheses next to PSD in the file name into a box. what i need is to get it to copy just the letters C or NC from the file name into this column, without the number.

5. column P: same as column O, but here i need just the number, without the C or NC.

6. column T: all i need is for it to copy the last 2 letters from the file name, which i know how to do. the problem is that since the file names come with a .pdf at the end, all i get is df. so in fact i need it to copy th 6th and the 5th letters from the end of the file name, which is above my abilities.

## Retrieving Data Of Certain Cell

## Retrieving Data From Table ...

Nov 21, 2008

I have a fairly simple matrix table that im needing help in which way to retrieve the information correctly.

Starting in row 10...
My Column A has length that i want to return

My Column B has a minimum value that i need A2 to be larger than, say 20
My Column C has a maximum value that i need A2 to be smaller than.
My Columns C & D, E & F, G & H and so on then have different sizes also available... but thats for me to work out later.

Is the best way to achieve this with a series of If statements as Vlookup only returns values to the right, and i want the value on the left, or what is my best way of tackling this problem.

I can attach a sheet that i started if the above makes no sense but my formula is useless so far...

## Retrieving / Returning Data From Different Worksheets?

Jun 19, 2014

I want to be able to choose a country from a drop-down list, and then have the spreadsheet retrieve/return values from that country, whose input data is located in a different worksheet. E.g. I want to be able to change the input according to what country I am looking at. I was able to do this with simple IF functions,but I'm realizing that this is not good enough. I want to eventually expand the number of countries that I want to return data from, and then the formula is not dynamic enough.

To make it simple: I want to be able to return the correct values for "page views" and "high" and "low" according to what country I choose from the drop-down menu in cell C3 on the "value calculator" sheet.

Also; in cell N15 and N16 I want the alternatives to be yes and no, and they cannot be yes at the same time. H

Then product will be printed and added together to the "sum row".

Nov 8, 2013

What I would like to be able to do is to call a procedure from an excel document to copy/retrieve all of the information between specified dates on the google spreadsheet and place into another worksheet in the excel document.

The spreadsheet is hosted in my googledrive and is confidential (i.e. I cannot publish it), so I am assuming I will need to add password credentials into the code, which will be an added complication.
