Return A Lookup Value Based On A Range Of Options?

Jul 13, 2013

I have used the below formula which works in a standard cell, however I would like to have this is a VBA code using the Target.Offset option, however I can not get this to work. There may also be a better way of doing this.

The code is looking to see if the 1st cell (A118) is empty or not, if it is empty do nothing otherwise it then looks up the value in the 2nd cell (B118) and assigs the appropriate name from the range values.

=If(A118="","",LOOKUP(B118,{0,0;0,"";1,"Main Bank";71,"PFS";80,"Main Bank";106,"Dry Clean / Photo";112,"SCO";141,"Cafe";168,""}))

Lookup Data From Validation Drop Down And Return Multiple Corresponding Values

Jul 17, 2009

I have a worksheet containing a list of states in column A and a list of companies in column B (along additional data in columns C-L). I want create a lookup formula on a separate worksheet where users can select the state from a dropdown menu and it will return the information from columns B-L for that state.

For example:

Alabama ABC Company Active Expires December 2009
Alabama 123 Company Expired Expired April 2008
Alabama XYZ Company Active Expires August 2009
Alabama Larry Company Expired Expired May 2006

How can I do this without losing my mind? I've tried various Index, Small and Match formulas and none of them work.

Data Validation List Based On A Table That Can Change?

Jan 11, 2013

I am building an Excel file that will be used to track information and at the core of it all is a list of people from different offices where the number of people per office can change and/or a person leaves the company and is replaced by another. I'll simply:

Column A Column B
Office Employee
Hamilton Emp 1
Hamilton Emp 2
Hamilton Emp 3
Toronto Emp 4
Toronto Emp 5
Toronto Emp 6
Toronto Emp 7
Toronto Emp 8
Waterloo Emp 9
Waterloo Emp 10

This will be all on Worksheet 'Info'. I have a Worksheet for each Office and named them accordingly. On each worksheet I want to use Data Validation on a column, we will call it 'ChosenOne', set it as 'List' and have the Source pull all the employee names that belong to that office and use them as a selection

ex: Hamilton Worksheet, 'ChosenOne' would show Emp 1, Emp 2, and Emp 3 in the list.

If Emp 3 changed offices to Waterloo 6 months from now I would like to change A4 from Hamilton to Waterloo and the formula would not have to be changed and the next time someone selects 'ChosenOne' it would only show Emp 1 and Emp 2.

Of course this means on the Waterloo Worksheet, 'ChosenOne' would show Emp 3, Emp 9, Emp 10 now.

So basically I am trying to not specify a specific named range for each office and am hoping there is a way to poll information from a Table (or any other tool that can simplify this).

I would be ok with something like:

Column A Column B
Office Employee
Hamilton Emp 1, Emp2, Emp 3
Toronto Emp 4, Emp 5, Emp 6, Emp 7, Emp 8
Waterloo Emp 9, Emp 10

and just move Emp 3 from B2 to B4 but I don't know if a list can be created from multiple items in a single cell seperated by a , or ; or :.

Multiple Options Cell Values Based On Multiple Criteria Variable Inputs?

Mar 18, 2013

I maintain the data flow at my work. We send and receive the data using excel files with specific formatting that I then upload to the database. Each time I send or receive the excel file I must log them, this is what my code question refers to.

I use RDBMerge to merge all the contents of the 100 plus excel files into one worksheet. The first part of the macro cleans up the merge data for use in the log (i have attached an example of the clean data and finished log).

The blue shaded area of the "Raw_Data" is what the clean data looks like, the yellow column is what current macro records for each record.

As you can see by the example the Raw_Data is only two files LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 & LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121230_01, each with more that one record.

The log code in column "H" Is based on this criteria:
First Letter of the Unique ID in column "E" - O, M, or L
Program Type in Column "F" - U or R
1. O-U = U
2. O-R = RU
3. M-U = U2
4. M-R = R2U
5. L-R = R

You will note that Columns G-R of the "Log Sheet" correspond to the "Record Type" found in Column "G" of the "Raw_Data" sheet.

This is the area where my skill at using scripting dictionaries fails.

The results for the log list each file only once, but the log code for each corresponding "Record Type" in columns G-R of the "Log Sheet" must contain each unique instance of the code. In other words

if LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 contains an O-U with an "A" Record Type and an M-R with an "A" Record Type; then, on the log sheet there needs to be the codes "U/R2U" in the cell intersection of the LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 record row and "A" column (which is column "G")

So, If the File contains one of each code for each Record Type the corresponding cell must house one of each code separated by a "/" without any spaces. This means the cell value could no code, or one code and all the variations in between to all five codes. Also, for ease of human reading the log codes should be concatenated in the 1-5 order that I listed them in (U/RU/U2/R2U/R)

Here is my code so far.

Option Explicit
Sub test()
Dim dic As Object, a, i As Long, rng As Range, e, w, n As Long
Set dic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

Creating Validation List From Table Column Based On Data In Another Column

Dec 11, 2013

If I have a table as noted below with the following assumptions:

- this table will likely grow
- the 'Include' column data will change based on external criteria/formulas, so the 'Include' column will not be sorted.
- Macros aren't an option as this sheet needs to be macro free.



How do I build a formula that I can place in a data validation drop down to only include 'Item's that have Yes indicated in the 'Include' column?

I've been researching this and found answers if the 'Include' column was sorted via offset, but I haven't found any to sift through when unsorted. I feel like there is a simple answer to this that I am missing. Here is the sheet --> ExampleSheet.xlsx

Linked Validation Lists & Lookup Based On Choice

Aug 12, 2007

I'm trying to continue on this post: Populate Cells After Choice From Drop-Down

I'm trying to expand on CNL's idea. What I need to do is create a spreadsheet that autopopulates two blocks based on the dropdown box that preceedes it. I've got it to partially work, but can't figure out the next step. The differnce between my sheet and CNL's sheet is my drop-down is an indirect data validation.

The easiest would be to have my data in one long list, but my goal is to make it easier on the user to find the specific procedure (I'm trying to build a budgeting spreadsheet for a medical office). So in box A15 there is a list of the different service area, which gives a list of choices in C15 based on the choice selected in A15. My goal is to have G15 and G16 list the cost and charge respectively.

M1 - O3 is the data for Radiology
Q1 - S4 is the data for Labs
U1 - W4 is the data for Office

How To Arrange Data Range Into New Table Based On Multiple Criteria

Aug 27, 2012

I have a problem whereby I have a list of data that has a date, a transaction and a balance. I want to be able to rearrange this data into multiple tables, one for each month.

The pictures below explain the situation better, on the left is the list of data I need to sort, and on the right is how I'd like the data displayed. So for the May columns I would like to display all transactions that happened in May and, depending on whether it is an income or an expense, the amount in the corresponding column.

i.e. so the finish result looks something like this:

Multiple Table, Lookups And Validation

Mar 31, 2009

I'm having is with different Standards there are different names for the beam sizes - so i need validation in a single cell over mulitple tables. Also i then need to perform the lookup function ( or maybe this isn't the correct way) over the mulitple tables.

The attached spreadsheet will illustrate this better.
I am not too familiar with the advanced excel functions, but should be able to easily grasp these with an example or some guidance.

Multiple Parameter Lookup For Multiple Table Ranges

Jun 15, 2008

In the attached file i have multiple tables for different types of conservatory roofs (16 of them in total). The ranges at the top and side relate to milimeter measurements and the data in the middle relate to the price for that sized conservatory roof. The table works where the two ranges intercept each other. I have a formula to do this for one of the tables only. What i would like is a way of choosing which type of roof to use (i.e. which table to use) and then to be able to input the measurements and the price to be displayed. All of this needs to be done in one query so its as user friendly as possible. i've had is to use a pivot table, i feel it is not possible to use a pivot table to do this sort if thing after research into them, although i am un-familiar in the making of them

Lookup Function To Lookup For Data In Another Table

Jul 29, 2008

I am trying to use lookup function to lookup for data in another table (we call it table A). Unfortunately, whenever the code is not in the table A, Excel will return the data from the previous row.... is there any possible way to prevent this... in another word, if the code does not exist in the table A, I want Excel to return 0 or some other figures.

Data Validation Dependent On Lookup Flag

Aug 11, 2009

I have a worksheet (mileage) which has a client column (column B) which is validated so that the user can only choose clients from a dropdown list. The dropdown gets its values from another sheet (data) in the same workbook. In the data sheet each client also has a recharge flag (1 or 0) in a column beside it.

In the mileage worksheet column E is ‘mileage’ and column F is ‘recharge mileage’. What I need to do is create a validation rule or macro that only allows a user to input a value into the recharge mileage column if the client whom they selected from column B has a recharge flag of 1 (i.e. they are a recharge client). If they try to input a value without the client being a recharge client (or without selecting a client) it should give an error message.

Expand Table To Include Missing Times From Data And Sort Based On Multiple Criteria

May 6, 2014

I have a set of data (assume 2 columns, one with a long name and the second with a time). The names contain variables that must be used as criteria (a single entry may contain "Blue" and "On"/"Off") and times vary, based on when the Name turns "On" or "Off" [in minutes: 25 (On), 47 (Off), 89 (On), 100 (Off) and 137 (On)]. I need to create another table that automatically inserts values for all times, to include the missing times (0 min thru 24 and 26 thru 46, etc.). EX: If the first entry is "Blue-On" at "25 minutes", the cells from 0 minutes to 24 minutes are each "0" and become a "1" at 25 minutes - the following cells are "1" until 47 minutes (where it is turned off). (1 and 0 represent "On" and "Off", respectively)

How can I created a formula to insert the correct numbers into the correct places? I'm willing to have multiple cells with formulas and simply hide the columns that are doing the calculations.

Lookup Table Using Multiple Criteria

I have attached a demo spreadsheet to define the problem.

I wish to populate column K (Risk Rating) with data retrieved from the table, based on the corresponding information from Columns I & J.

e.g. I5 + J5 = Short term illness or injury + Unlikely. This corresponds to cell E9 (11) in the table so required response in K5 would be 11.

Output Based On Lookup Table

Dec 1, 2007

I created a Vlookup table so that when you type a ticker into Cell B3, it tells the user how many points and what percentage of the criteria the stock passes. I would like to create a macro (or something) that takes each ticker in the Ticker sheet, enters it in the Cell B3, and then transfers the data that the vlookup table produces to the output sheet. My attachment is a simplified version of the real spreadsheet.

I hope this isn't a duplicate question. I did look, but maybe I'm not phrasing it correctly. A reference to a similar problem works too.

Lookup Values From Multiple Formula Table

May 3, 2009

I have a sheet, called "output", in which I need to complete column C "calculated values". I need to complete the table based upon a formula table (which is in sheet "formulas").

For the first row of data, cell C2, I need to take the price per order ($0.25; cell A2) and number of orders (40; cell B2) and copy data to cell B4 and B6, respectively.

Once the data has been copied to to cells B4 and B6 on the fomulas sheet, I need to copy the calculated value in Row N to the output sheet. Note that the value being copied from N can be N11, N12, N13, N14, or N15 (the one that is <> to null).

Lookup In Table Based On List Choice

Aug 22, 2007

I have a way of getting a cell value from having a data validation linked to a row of cells containing lookup formulas.. which in turn are looing at a table.

I have attached a small example.

The problem is the spreadsheet is a large one and i was hoping I could shrink the size of this by removing the vlookup formulas by having some kind of index/match/lookup formula inserted directly in the data validation.

I got this to work using nested IF formulas but its not very practicable!

The attached example has data validation in column A that selects the task type. Choosing this then changes the values in the vlookup area.. which then becomes the validation list for cell in column B.

Data Validation From Table (Non-VB)

Aug 24, 2009

I'm building a workbook that has a tab for each department (sales, admin, tech, etc.) w/i a project. I also have an inputs and instructions tab where I have all of my lists and background info hidden.

Essentially, on each tab, the user will build a team for the project using drop down lists. The lists reference data on the inputs tab. This data includes a list of all of the titles in the company, as well as which department they belong to. I want the validation to be structured such that the sales tab drop downs only see sales titles, admin only sees admin titles, etc. I also need it to be dynamic in its drop down inclusions so that when I add/subtract titles, I don't have to reset the validation for new cell references. Below is an example of the what the reference data looks like.

Input Tab:

Col A --- Col B
Dept --- Title
Sales --- Rep
Sales --- Sr. Rep
Admin --- VP
Admin --- SVP
Sales --- Closer
Tech --- Analyst
Tech --- Developer

Link To External Source Workbook For Data Validation Lookup Values Returns Zeros

Mar 25, 2014

Say I have Source Workbook X 1, and Destination Workbooks X 4. The Source workbook contains a number of lookup values. I want the lookup values to be maintained in the single Source workbook, and I want this workbook to remain closed when the end users are using their Destination workbooks. It is critical that certain cells in the Destination workbooks have validated data in order for formulas and summarizations to be correct.

I'm happy if the Destination workbooks contain a lookup worksheet (perhaps hidden). In short, I'd like the contents from the Source workbook, Lookups worksheet, to just be replicated "as is" into the Destination workbooks, Lookups worksheet. I then want to do my data validation from that worksheet, which of course is open (data validation appears to only work with open workbooks).

I've investigated the techniques in this link: [URL]


1) Are the techniques in that link about the best approach? i.e. an external link plus array formulas?

2) A blank cell in the source workbook (text column but formatted as General) is resulting in a zero in the external link. How can I make the external link exactly match the text as entered in the source workbook?
