If I remove the vlookup part the formula return the correct results, but I want the resulting number be multiplied by a percentage (that what's the vlookup is trying to accomplish).

How to use offset in combination with match and vlookup. Well I think I have to use Offset to find the value ( cell with time in it).

I have in my workbook 3 sheets: Sheet1, Sheet2 and Agents.

In 'Sheet2' every week I upload a report with persons and every person has a certain amount of time behind their name.

In 'Sheet1' I want to get (load) the data: the person and time from 'Sheet2'.

In 'Agents' I only match the names. That's because the names in the report I upload in 'Sheet2' have a different lay-out then the ones I use.

The matching and to get the names correct in 'Sheet1' Is no problem. Though I get stuck with the cells where the time is placed in the report I upload in 'Sheet2'.

The persons are in Column C ( C7, C26, C45, C64 etc) but the value I also need to get is not in line behind the names. It's In the 7th row under the name and in Column L.

Example:

Wiebe (C7) time ( L14) Gary (C26 time ( L33) Kay (C45) time ( L52)

What I use to match the names and get data is this formula.

What I want to do is the following, I have two sheets, one where the data needs to be filled and the second where the date needs to be looked up. In Sheet1 I need to find a date for each of the NR2 and NR1 combination. But in the second sheet there are multiple NR1 occurences and also single occurences. So if there is only one, I need that date, if there are several I need the average of all the occurences for NR1, not taking into account the N/A ones.

(some examples from the file) NR2 NR DATE 100707987121951 100702347121960 100707750121960 100707721121960 100702422121960

[code]....

So for example, NR1 121965 has two dates, 03/09/2002 and 27/01/2004, so here it should calculate the average of these two and put that average in the first sheet.

I was thinking of something like IF(MATCH(?) gives one result,put that with vlookup, else AVERAGE of all MATCH that are not N/A)

I have attached an example s/sheet. Basically this is an excerpt of the data that sits in a pivot table. What I want to do is from another sheet query this data. I don't want to use another pivot table as they are quite hungry in terms of memory and the data source we have is quite large. In essence what I want to achieve is in cell G2 the user enters a code. A function (vlookup?) will then scan column A to find that code.

The function then needs to look across and sum the total of Requests and Responses for all the dates. Whilst the dates may change, the number of dates will remain the same. Once it has summed them it needs to return the totals to cells G4 and G5. Additionally it needs to fill in the relevant total (offset?) for the corresponding week as detailed in columns H-AH. It seems quite a simple lookup issue but I am not very versed in nested lookups. I have looked around and it seems INDEX woudl do the job but I am at a loss on how to construct this type of function.

I'm getting #REF's when I do this so maybe I have to do this a certain way. Anyway, I am getting data in my excel spreadsheet that is in Column B. I need to transpose the information so it goes in cells C1:X1. Those aren't the exact rows but just an example. So I got the transpose to work.

Now my problem comes with the VLOOOKUP. I typed in the formula properly with a lookup value that matched and then selected the table. I picked the column I wanted the formula to grab, and selected FALSE.

I have a formula that I can't get to paste successfully in the forum - it keeps getting cut off?!? ... but I think I can probably simplify my explanation to get the answer I want anyway.

I need to only show the value from AUS!$H$2:$H$17 if the C2 & D2 combination are the same as the AUS!$B$2:AUS!$B$17 & $AUS!$C$2:AUS!$C$17 combination.

i'm trying to take a selected row of about 7 cells (which are obviously all positioned horizontally) and have it inserted, via vlookup using the drop down option of 'Data Validation', to another location but having all the cells lined up vertically, meaning going down 7 cells. I would guess that a shorter explanation of what i'm trying to do is to have the vlookup transpose 7 cells.

I have 2 cells with numbers. In a 3rd cell I want to create a formula which looks at the 2 data cells and shows a value. The rules are the following: If C1 or C2 are bigger than Xthen C3=value1 else C3=value2. I have some basic excel knowledge but im not very familiar with functions. I'm using Excel 2007.

how to create a list (I know how to calulate the count) of combinations without repetition when choosing 2,3,4 and 5 words from a set of 5 in Excel 2007.

I have data in a 5x5 area and I would like a VB Script or Function that can give every possible combination of one number from each column added together.

I have a list of numbers from 1-7 would look like this each number in a seperate cell.

3 5 1 2 3 5 6 7 2 4 5 6 7 6 7 4 6 6

I want to use one number from each row (which there is only 6 rows) and then find every number from 1-7 that will complete the sequence 1-7. So with the numbers above (using one number from each row) the only other numbers that could be used would be 3 or 5.

The combos that would work: row 1 use 3 ----------- row 1 use 5 row 2 use 1 ----------- row 2 use 1 row 3 use 2 ----------- row 3 use 2 row 4 use 7 ----------- row 4 use 7 row 5 use 4 ----------- row 5 use 4 row 6 use 6 ---------- row 6 use 6 5 would complete ---------- 3 would complete

Remember the numbers and how many numbers in each row can change but will always be 1-7 and I always need to find every number that can complete the sequence 1-7 by using one number from each row.

on the extreme left column, i have 23 numbers from A1:A23. All 23 numbers are in the form of 4 digit. For example A1 there is 1234, i need to display the possible 3 digit combination of this in the same row (like say 123,124,234,134 in B1,C1,D1 AND E1).

Another example in A2 there is 3545, i need to display 354,455,355 in the same row in B2,C2,D2

I need to perform this operation for the 23 numbers on the extreme left row. Can give me some hint on the code.

I am trying to show the all possible combinations of a set of numbers in Excel, in my case I think permutations are more appropriate to use. For example: there are three numbers 1, 2, 3 I want to show results like:

1, 2, 3 1, 3, 2 2, 1, 3 2, 3, 1 3, 2, 1 3, 1, 2

The functions in Excel available only give the total number, but I want to see these combinations!

I was just wondering if it was possible to only allow cells in a worksheet to only allow values that are a combination of 2 arrays whether it be through data validation or other means. For example, if I have an array that has a b and c and a second one with 1 2 and 3, is it possible to only allow values a1 a2 a3 b1 b2 b3 c1 c2 c3?

I'm trying to use a combination of Hlookup and COUNTIF. I'm selecting a date value in a cell using data validation. I'm then wanting to write a formula to lookup that value in a row of dates, and then use a countif to find all the '1' values in that column.

I would like to check a combination of two cells, if these two cells are both empty (not zero, just blank) then it will return a blank in another cell. I tried using AND but am unsure how it works. I would like to use a "Case" Function.

Function FirstCheck(Count1, Count2) Select Case FirstCheck Case Count1 = "", Count2 = "" FirstCheck = "" Case Else FirstCheck = Abs((Count1 - Count2) / (Count1 + Count2)) End Select End Function

I have created a program where there is a spreadsheet containing all of the items in a loan tools store, which are issued out to people. I have created a "Search/Find" function within the "Issued Items" sheet. Within this search function, you are able to search all or any combination of the following criteria: Serial; Description; Name; Location. For example: If you just type data in the "Serial" field, it will just search that column and select the cells which contain that value.

The problem I am having is when searching multiple criteria, each and every cell in the columns which are searched is selected. Whereas, I would like only the cells which match all of the criteria to be selected.

For example: If I was to type "1" into the "Serial" field, "2" into the "Description" field, "Liam" into the "Name" field, and "Workshop" into the location field: Current: Serial column is searched and all cells with "1" in are selected. Description column is searched and all cells with "2" in are selected. Name column is searched and all cells with "Liam" in are selected. Location column is searched and all cells with "Workshop" in are selected. What I Would Like: Program to search each of the specified columns and only select data which meets the searched criteria. For example: Rows 20 & 28 to be selected as they both contain, Serial "1", Description "2", Name "Liam", Location "Workshop". Note: The sheet will have password protection.

i've attached a worksheet yet removed my attempt at formulas as it would have made most of you cry... what i'd like to do is select an item from a dropdown list (B1) (that i've built and it works, phew) and display the summary data (B3:B10) from the column or sum of columns in array (A12:F21) as explained in the relationship matrix.

I've tried ifsum and dsum (copied in each cell B3 to B10 of course) yet it doesn't extract items from the array with the drop-down selection. nor does it add columns together.

I am trying to sum 12 columns based on looking up a reference that is in one column. Basically I have 2 files where on both files Column A has a G/L account number. On the data file I have credits for each month going from column C to Column O. On the other I have one column where I want to bring in the sum of all the months based on looking up the G/L number in column A.

I have to write a formula which states the following:

if cells AA1,AB1 &AC1 = 0 then "Slow-Moving", if of these cells AA1,AB1 &AC1 contains a number then "OK", if cells, AA1,AB1,AC1,Z1,X1,Y1 all = 0 then "Non-Moving"

I believe an If and AND combination could work but its not working for me.

write a udf function to deal with the above ?I know large(a1:e1,1) for picking up the largest one in the row,but no idea to find the largest one when these five numbers are combined to build a 5-digit number.

[ want to find largest 5-digit (also 4 ,3 digit ) numbers combined by thess five numbers]

I'm trying to figure out how to setup a worksheet to find the most common 2 digit numbers going vertically from the bottom(cold) to the top(hot) it would consist of 90 digits 0 thru 9

each vertical line would be considered weeks 9 thru 1. week 9 would be the first vertical line of digits on the left. it could also contain the most common 2 digits horizontally. Both 2 digit values would be color coded ex. blue equals most common 2 digit horizontally and green equals vertically. I would also like to color code the most common 2 digit value diagonally as long as it is the most common of either the vertical or horizontal 2 digit. Each number is seperate on the worksheet they would not be pairs. im using excell 2003.

The numbers are file attributes, as you know these are

Normal = 0 Read Only = 1 Hidden = 2 System = 4 Volume = 8 Directory = 16 Archive = 32

These numbers are cumulative, so if a file has an attribute of 5 it is Read Only and System (1 + 4), it can't be anything else. Or if it has an attribute of 6 it can only be Hidden and System (2 + 4).

What I need is a spreadsheet that calculates every possible combination of these numbers, so I can check my Select Case statement has covered all possible combinations.

If it was just a one off project I could just work it out "by hand", but I have realised that there are several other projects I have that this would be useful in.

e.g. I am doing a skills matrix at work. If I give each skill a number, then give each employee a cumulative total number then I can have a spreadsheet that shows their skills. For each employee number there will only be one possible combination of skill that add up to that number.

My employer often adds new skills, so each time this happens I will have to check every combination is covered.

So I really need a spreadsheet solution, something I can input a group of numbers and it will show me a list of every possible combination of those numbers. The number of numbers in the group will vary, so a solution that only works for a group of (say) 6 numbers won't work. It has to work on a variable group of numbers.
