I'm looking to create a UDF called ListItems which will look through a range and create a one column contiguous list of non-blank values.
e.g. below is Range("A1:C3") --> ignore the Column Headers, they're just included for visual reference.
If the user used =ListItems(A1:C3) in cell D1, the result would be:
Couple of things to consider:
1. The user would most likely have to confirm this function with Ctrl+Shift+Enter --> that is fine
2. A UDF might not be the most efficient/suitable solution to this "problem", but I'm currently learning about UDFs, so am more interesting in how they work, than determining the most elegant/correct way to resolve this issue.
3. The order of the resultant values which I have used above (i.e. reading the range passed to the UDF from left to right one row at a time), is not critical, if it is easier to read top to bottom one column at a time, that would be absolutely fine too.
I have a bill of materials with a description column. I want to search that column for various words (ie. wheel, screw, spacer, shelf, etc) and return a value into another new column depending on that value (wheel inputs wheel, screw inputs hardware, spacer inputs hardware, shelf inputs shelf).
How Excel shows you how to search will only return one value because I can't use an else statement:
I have a workbook with multiple sheets in it. One sheet is an Overview sheet, and the others represent the months (JAN, FEB, MAR, etc). On the Overview sheet, I have a few columns of data set up that I need to retrieve from the various sheets within the workbook. The thing is, this data can occur more than once on any particular sheet and it's very likely to occur multiple times throughout the workbook. For example, compressor #1 was blown down on January 1, January 15, February 5, February 9, February 12, April 22, and so on. Compressors 2-5 were also blown down multiple times throughout the year, as well as various other equipment that I have listed out throughout the numerous monthly tabs. On the Overview sheet, I have the columns Equipment, Date, Temp, Begin PSIG and MCF Loss. I'm needing to get the information from those tabs into these columns.
I first tried a simple VLOOKUP. After all, it's worked for so many situations similar to this, why wouldn't it work here? I quickly found that it won't work here because I need to return multiple results, not just the first one it comes across.
When I copy the formula down it seems to return the same results in every cell, not the next result, and the next, and the next, and so on.
Basically I have a workbook that contains two worksheets, sheet1 contains flight numbers in column A and column E contains the Charge code that belongs to the flight number. The problem I have is that in some cases the flight number can appear more than once in the column and the corresponding charge code is different. Is there a way of using a look up to find the flight number and bring back the corresponding Charge code in sheet2?
Please note I have attached a summorised version of the workbook, the actual Travel# in sheet2 is in column R and the Charge code in sheet2 is in column AD.
I have list of 2043 rows and i have like 29 values i need to look up and return me several values that associated with that particular number but I want it to list them horizontally or even vertically but whenever i get the right code in one cell and i drag that green box it formats it in a weird way that gives me an error.
Here is the sheet I would like an VBA or macro.... my VBA code is already on here but somehow i get an error.
So what i did was the first code followed this example still get errors [URL] .....
So match pcode columnsA to find and return the columnB result somewhere else on the sheet list them out horizontally preferred or vertically.
I have a list of countries in column A, there are duplicates in this list. In column B are numbers corresponding to the country.
A B IRELAND 1221 GERMANY 2341 USA 3443 IRELAND 2231
Ireland could be in the list and have up to 20 different values beside it in column B
On a separate sheet i have a drop down list of all the countries. I am looking for a vlookup or something similar to return a list of all the numbers beside IRELAND when Ireland is selected in the drop down list.
I had been trying a vlookup but this looks at the list and stops at the first "IRELAND" it finds and just returns the value beside the first "IRELAND"
I am trying to write a formula that is based on a vlookup that will return multiple values. Attached is a spreadsheet that is an example for what I am trying to do. On the download tab it is an example of a general ledger. On the total tab I want to enter a GL# and have it list all the entries for that GL number. I know I can try an array, but I have not been able to figure that out.
I am remodeling my home and have put together a budget template. I have uploaded the file to make things easy to understand. Basically I want to return the values from column F and G on sheet "ledger" to the corresponding account name to column H in sheet "budget". For example, rows 14, 21, and 22 in the "budget" sheet currently correspond to the "fuel" account. I would like those values in column G (or F) to be added and calculated in cell H58 in the "budget" sheet.
I managed to found an array formula that return multiple values with a condition. Below the formula:
I am attaching a simple file. In cell O4 I paste the formula, and I drag it as much as I need. But my issue comes when the formula begins the calculations. I need to calculate 50 columns with over 9,000 rows each column (over 45,000 arrays). Imagine the processing load to my computer and the consuming of time.
Is there a way to use a lookup formula to return all values of a given text, not just the value of the first listing of the text. In an attempt to clarify my already confusing request, if A5 on "worksheet1" is "Land" I want E5 on "worksheet1" to return the summation of values assigned to "Land" "worksheet2" "column B" any time "Land" appears on "Worksheet2" "Column A".
I have a workbook with 2 sheets. The sheet called 'data' contains all purchasers names (which do get repeated), the item they bought and 3 item costs, all in range A1:E15. The 'lookup' sheet allows the user to enter a purchasers name in cell B1, then I want all the items that purchaser bought listed with the corresponding item costs. I've attached a sample spreadsheet.
I'm having trouble getting my payroll data to combine. I've been using VLOOKUP to look up employees by their Personel Number (Column A) and return their name (column B), Cost Center (Column C), the Fund that they are paid from (Column D) and the Amount they are paid (Column E). The problem is that some employees are being paid out of 2 or more funds and VLOOKUP is only returning the fund that appears first, leaving out the other portion of their pay and thus making my grand total quite far off. How can I get Excel to return all the entries for a particular Personel Number? There are more than 16000 employees, so this is no small spreadsheet.
I've been trying to research vlookup to see how I can use it or something like it to return multiple value for a dynamic chart I'm trying to build. I've found several paged to give examples but I can not seem to figure it out with my sheet b/c the examples differ from mine I have a financial spreadsheet with several categories and I want to make a chart for all my utilities. i need a array formula (i think) that will search for (example) My salary, my wife's salary and other income and extract those values in the next column (Credit (+)) to build a chart... (i will use this same concept to make other charts as well.) The Categories column is F and the values will need to be extracted for the chart are in G. doesnt matter where they are extracted to but for the sake of being speific ill say starting P50.
I've got a complicated logic formula which looks at multiple values on a large spreadsheet to return a singular figure based on whether all these conditions are met. It works well but I wan't to add an extra stipulation to it. I won't paste the full formula as it probably wont mean much without all the data so heres a mini version with simplifed conditions - but that DOESNT work:
Is it not possible to use entire columns references when you're looking up one value and wanting it to return multiple corresponding values? For example, my formula seems to work fine when I use something like: =INDEX($A$1:$B$7,SMALL(IF($A$1:$A$7=$C$10,ROW($A$1:$A$7)),ROW(2:2)),2) (with an array)
But if I change $A$1:$B$7 to simply $A:$B (and the rest to straight column references) it gives me a "NUM! error. I need my range to reference a dynamic range because values will be added to the table.
Basically, I need a formula that will return multiple occurances of the same lookup value.
I'm trying to use vlookup to return multiple values for the same unique identifier. I've read a couple of examples within the forums, but I haven't been able to find anything I understand. I have employee ID's and these ID's have specific access associated with their ID's and each access is listed within a different row. Within a new spreadsheet I removed all duplicates of the employee ID so now I no longer have a one to one match between spreadsheets, so I would like to create a vlookup that will list all access associated with each employee ID. I have attached a sample of the data sheet I am working with.
I've made a "Budget Calendar" so to speak.., with my bills on the first sheet, and the Months in the following sheets. What I'm trying to do is say, for instance, the day is the 11th on the calendar, (there are two bills due on this day), and I have the bill scheduled to be on the 11th, can I use a formula to return what bills are due?
On the "Bill Dates" sheet, you can see where I'm kind of going with this...
On the August calendar, under the 11th, I want it to say "Internet, gas (utility)" in cell D20, or "Internet" and "gas (utility)" in D20&21, respectively.
I can get E20 to return the total bills due for the day using "=VLOOKUP("11th",'Bill Dates'!$B$2:$D$395,3,FALSE)", and it'd be awesome if I could get it to return them in different rows as well.
I have a file with multiple sales for each product, each month it can change depending on sales and i want to get the total of each product. As the range is not defined this is where i am stuck. I want the total for each product based on the product name or cell reference.
Logic: Look through range and sum total each product equal to "A2" for example.
I am wanting to use a vlookup or perhaps an array(?) to bring through multiple cell values based on being the maximum value. So say there are multiple employees (all with unique ids) under one manager (also with unique ID), I want to find the employee with the highest value in a particular column and return that employees details, such as name, employee number and the value itself, which are all in the same row. I have attached a basic example of the data involved.
I am attempting to graph data based on work down in specific work centers to track efficiency. I can download all items that were finished for a certain time frame (yesterday, last month, last year, etc.), but the data only shows up as the item, quantity, and the date of closure. I take that info and copy and paste it to the close out tab of the other work book, where it references another sheet to pull in the time required to complete the task, and the work center that did the work. My problem is when an item has multiple work centers on the same item and then taking that info into a pivot table to graph. This can be done manually, but I was hoping I could create a way to only have to copy and paste the data and have it return the work done.
I have included a shortened version of what I am trying to do, eventually there will be 25000+ items on the data tab, but if I can get this to work, then i assume I can extrapolate.
In the attached sheet, I want to look up values from table (A1:G5) and then for each occurrence of a particular number, return the value in the same row in column H, and sum when there are multiple values (see green shaded area for desired output. For example, the number 8 occurs in E3, E4, and G5. I want to return the sum of the corresponding values in column H (1,5, and 2). I've spent hours trying to work this one out, I'm sure this is probably an array formula, but I can't manage to make it work.
