# Use Index / Match To Find A Value In Column But Ignore One Value

Mar 13, 2013

I'm using Index/Match to find a value in another workbook, but there is one value that I want to ignore. For example here is my function --

=INDEX(ZZANALYSIS_PATTERN.xls!\$A:\$H,MATCH(D8,ZZANALYSIS_PATTERN.xls!\$G:\$G,0),2)

In D8, the value is Blue. Here is an example with made-up values (X is meaningless values) --

A B C D E F G
X Apple X X X X Blue
X Pie X X X X Blue

When I use the function, I want it to retrieve Pie, but it always retrieves Apple. Is there a way to ignore Apple? I've tried throwing "Apple" in there a couple different ways, but nothing is working. Or, if I can search from the bottom up, that would work as well.

## How To Ignore Blanks In Index / Match Array Formula

Dec 2, 2013

I'm using the following formula to look at a range of cells and return the most common text entry. The formula works fine as long as there is text; if there are more blank cells than entries, then it returns a 'blank' and my formula cell is empty. How to clean this up so that it ignores blank cells?

=INDEX(C2:C11,MATCH(MODE(COUNTIF(C2:C11,C3:C11)),COUNTIF(C2:C11,C2:C11),0))

## Using Index / Match Function For Two Column Match Values

Aug 28, 2012

Basically where the columns say 2011 or 2012 AND 1, 2, 3. I want to be able to have it index the number below based on the GL number on the left and both the year and period on the top. I think that you can do with using the sumproduct function with the binary, but the computer is a little dated and it takes a while to run those calculations.

## Index Find Next Match

Nov 3, 2008

i am trying to find all the 0 in column P and return col M from the same rows, this finds the 1st, how do i find the rest?

=INDEX(M\$3:M\$100,MATCH("0",P\$3:P\$100,0))

## Using Index / Match In VBA To Find Cell Address Not Value

Jul 1, 2014

I have a data table, called Table1 in Sheet1. In a simple form it is

Customer ID
Comment

A
asdf

B
jkl;

So in VBA, I need to figure a way to give me the cell address of the matching cell in Comments. So say Customer ID starts at A1 ... that means the Comment for Customer A is B2.

How would I get that reference in VBA?

## Find Number In Array That Is Less Than INDEX MATCH?

Jun 25, 2014

Cell P14 = 4.7

My array is H42:N72, in H42:H72 I have numbers 15,14,13....0,-1,-2,-3, etc...

In N42:N72 there is a corresponding \$ amount that I would like to return based on finding the value which is greater than 4.7 (so, looking to match the \$\$ amount to the number 5 in column H42:H72)

I've tried using INDEX MATCH but can't figure this out.

## Find Value In Range With Two Criteria - INDEX MATCH MAX

Mar 28, 2012

I am struggling with a INDEX,MATCH and MAX formula. I am trying to retrieve values from column E with two criteria:

1. That the value in column C is equal to a lookup value
2. That the date in column A is the closest before date for a lookup date

I have attached an example file.

## Match And Index To Find A Value Within A Named Range

Nov 12, 2008

Is it possible to use Match to find a value within a Named range and then, based on that value, use Match and Index again to find a value two columns across?

I have a list of clients in Column A, with 10 cells between each. In Column B, I have a list of currencies (the same currencies next to each client) and in Column C the rate this client pays for this currency. I want to reference these rates from an external workbook. Is there any way to use Match to locate the client name, then use Index/Match to locate the rate for a particular currency, somehow telling Excel where to look the second time?

## Using Index / Match / Mini To Find Three Lowest Values In A Row

## Use Of MATCH And INDEX To Find First And Last Instances Meeting Criteria

Sep 30, 2009

I am trying to write a formula which finds the last instance of a number greater than 30 in a column (B). The values are not sorted from smallest to largest as they correspond to a time series (A) which needs to be preserved. Ultimately, I want the formula to return the time at which this value occurs, but I think I can do that bit using INDEX

I have a formula to give the first instance (row number) of a number above 30, which seems to work, but beacuse I don't fully understand how it works I can't modify it to give the last instance. The formula is:

=MATCH(1,INDEX(--(B2:B883>=30),0),0)

Having only just learnt how to use MATCH and INDEX, I thought each should have 3 arguments, so I'm confused about how the 4 arguments here work. Also I can't find much on using logic functions within INDEX. Can someone explain this formula, and suggest how I might go about finding the last instance please?

## Conditional Formating IF, Match, Index And Vlookup To Find Several Duplicated Value

Apr 11, 2009

This had been hunting me for weeks and I still could not come over it after weeks of study the conditional formating IF, match, index, Vlookup, etc to find several duplicated value, e.g Column B = Name 1 & Row B = Time and so on, where as Name will have data of Name 1 duplicated in different time, while row B, "Time"would change to a different Name and maybe it would go back to Name one.

My problem was dont know which formula I can use in a different sheet to bring back the data to Name 1 did Task A at Time A, while Name 1 did Task B at Time K, etc. If this is not Name 1, then Name B replace above.

## Index Match Offset - Find Contents Of Reference Cell

Jun 21, 2012

How can I modify the following formula to find the contents of reference cell, for example if the cell reference (G\$3) is equal to 9 I want it to use 8 instead.

Code:
IF(ISERROR(INDEX(tra!\$E\$2:\$E\$1100,MATCH(G\$3,tra!\$C\$2:\$C\$1100,0))),"",
INDEX(tra!\$E\$2:\$E\$1100,MATCH(G\$3,tra!\$C\$2:\$C\$1100,0)))

I tried using G\$3-1 but this doesn't appear to work.

## 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.

## Excel 2011 :: Index / Match Finds 1st Incident / How To Find Last Instance

Nov 23, 2012

I am working on a data entry sheet time and I am running into a wall. I am trying to code intelligence into sheet so that the user doesn't have to enter as much data.

I am using Excel for Mac, 2011, 14.2.3, But I would like to be able to have others use it on PC and in Excel 97 - 2004

I am developing a time sheet for work. I am trying to have excel generate the work order # for subsequent jobs.

'Daily Entry Sheet'!\$B\$8:\$B\$138 = Date

'Daily Entry Sheet'!\$F\$8:\$F\$138 = Property #

'Daily Entry Sheet'!\$G\$8:\$G\$138 = Property Location

'Daily Entry Sheet'!\$H\$8:\$H\$138 = Work Order Number

Following is what I presently have coded.

The following Works but is not completely as I need.

=IF(OR(\$F8=0,\$F8="",ISNA(G8),\$H7="Work Order #"),"",IF(ISERROR(INDEX(\$H7:H\$8,MATCH(\$F8,Prop.,0))),"",INDEX(\$H7:H\$8,MATCH(\$F8,Prop.,0))))

This works fine in that the match finds the first instance of the work order #. The problem is there may be a later worker order # for the same property which supersedes the old work order. I need to find that last work order number for property # 919 for example, not the first instance, as the index/match returns.

I looked for a function similar to the sumif or countif

=SUMIF(Prop.,\$F4,WorkOrdNum)

=SUMIF(Date,"="&\$V6,Total_____Hours)

But I don't need to add the work order numbers.

Countif can give me how many instances property # 919 is used,

But I haven't figured out how to use that to It would be ok if the function would return the largest number like the MAX function, best would be to select based upon the latest date.

## Find Three Largest Numbers From A Variable Starting Index Match Point

Sep 1, 2013

My data is set out in columns, where alternate columns provide day numbers for given years (we can call these type 1 columns), with adjacent columns containing values which correspond to those type 1 column day numbers (we can call these type 2 columns). There are about a hundred columns in total (50 of each type). I would like to get excel to return the three largest numbers within each type 2 column, but I want to exclude data within the type 2 column above the point which is adjacent to a specific (varying) day number in the type 1 column. The location of this point varies for all the type 1 columns, according to a third row of numbers (the look up start point), which are currently listed below the dataset in every type 1 column. So, for the type 1 column "year 1", I would want Excel to ignore the values 0 and 1, which are listed next to day numbers 78 and 79, and begin looking for the three largest values down the column starting from the value which is adjacent to 81 (which is a 2). In type 1 column "year 2", excel would start looking for the largest values from the cell adjacent to 78, so it would ignore the 18 at the top of the column,and would return 2 and 12. And so on.

## Formulas By Using VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, INDEX&MATCH Separately

Oct 8, 2009

I have this table

.......A.....B.....C....D
1.....I......a.....d.....g

2.....II.....b.....e.....h

3.....III....c.....f......i

As you can see, the number I has a,d,and g, II has b,e,and h, and III has c, f, and i

I want to make formula that if I make the input g it would return I, f would return III, and c would return III, and so on

I want to make four formulas by using VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, INDEX&MATCH separately.

## VLOOKUP / INDEX And MATCH For Second Value In Column?

## Sumifs With Index/Match Column

Aug 27, 2009

I have used this technique before with a sumif formula, to use the column that matches a reference cell but I cannot get this to work on a sumifs formula. What I have used previously in a sumif formula (only 1 criteria) is below.

## Using Index And Match For Two Criteria - One In A Column Other In A Row

Dec 20, 2012

How to get the following index/match formula to work.

I have 2 criteria that I need to find the result of in a table that has the one criteria down the column, the other across a row at the top.

The formula I have is thus far:

{=INDEX(\$K\$46:\$AV\$46,MATCH(L98,IF(\$K\$15:\$AV\$15=N98,\$K\$27:\$K\$82),0))}

In this L98 is the criteria I'm in theory doing a vlookup against the values in column \$K\$27:\$K\$82, and N98 is the theoretical hlookup against row \$K\$15:\$AV\$15, bringing back the intersection point from row \$K\$46:\$AV\$46

All I get is #N/A .....

## VBA For Multiple INDEX MATCH In One Column

Jul 22, 2013

Basically, I want a code that does a simple index-match function for a column - But for all the #N/A's that come up in that column, I'd like it go to another INDEX-MATCH function - and another after that. I'm trying to keep it all in one column.

Here is an example of the first index match

=INDEX([FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$A\$2:\$A\$15000,MATCH(L2,[FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$CJ\$2:\$CJ\$15000,0))

If this turns out an #N/A, I'd like those #N/A's to switch to this formula:

=INDEX([FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$A\$2:\$A\$15000,MATCH(M2,[FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$CK\$2:\$CK\$15000,0))

Then the remaining #N/A's to go to this one:

=INDEX([FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$A\$2:\$A\$15000,MATCH(G2,[FILENAME.XLSX]DealerDetails!\$G\$2:\$G\$15000,0))

The column I'm referring to will have around 2,000 records or less.

## Index And Match To Provide Column Heading Value?

Feb 22, 2013

I have two data points a Talk Time Value lets say 2:08 and the number of calls lets say 10 and need to pull the column heading value for the number of agents needed lets say 2. My "Grid" is saved in one sheet and the my variable data values are in another. I need to somehow pull the closet match of my talk time value 2:08 and the calls value 10 to match up on my grid and give me the Column Heading which is the number of agents. Which in this example would be 2 agents. Just for reference in my other sheet I have my Talk time Value in C3 and my Call number value in D3. I tried various Index and Match formulas but have not got the one that I need to work the closet I have is =INDEX(Sheet2'B1:D1,MATCH(D3,INDEX(Sheet2'B2:D7,MATCH(C3,'Sheet2'A2:A7,1),0))).

example: in Sheet 2
ColA Col B Col C Col D Sheet 1 C3= 2:08 D3=10
Row 1 1 2 3
Row 2 1:00 0 3 4
Row 3 1:15 1 5 6
Row 4 1:30 2 7 8
Row 5 1:45 3 9 10
Row 6 2:00 4 10 11
Row 7 2:15 5 12 13

## Excel 2010 :: Column And Row Match And Index

Oct 3, 2013

Whatever formula I try is returning an error of #N/A

I have two worksheets the first with transport data - customer,collection point, delivery point, haulier and number of pallets - all this information is in columns; the second sheet with the rates show haulier, customer, validity, delivery point in columns and then pallet numbers run across a row with rates tying in underneath. i have simplified this below.

I am just trying to reference all the data and work out what the cost for the variables would be in the example the cell i'm trying to find is H8 (320) -

I have already tried the following and several modified versions:
=INDEX('RATE LOOKUPS'!\$E\$6:\$I\$9,MATCH(1,('MASTER DATA'!A:A='RATE LOOKUPS'!C:C)*('MASTER DATA'!B:B='RATE LOOKUPS'!B:B)*('MASTER DATA'!C:C='RATE LOOKUPS'!D:D)*('MASTER DATA'!D:D='RATE LOOKUPS'!A:A)*('MASTER DATA'!E:E='RATE LOOKUPS'!E5:I5),0))

## Index / Match Lookup With Variable Indexed Column

Jul 23, 2014

I'm trying to perform an index / match lookup that can have a dynamic indexed column.

Sheet1 has the master table and sheet2 is where I'm putting the formula. The table on sheet1 has a RecordID field that uniquely identifies each record and that must be typed into Sheet2 [RecordID] column and then matched to sheet one to identify the record

Code:
MATCH([RecordID],Table1[RecordID],0)

The column headers on Sheet1 are used as data validation for the column [Field] on sheet2. The value of the Field column on sheet two should determine the the column on sheet1 to index.

This is what I have so far:

Code:
=INDEX(MATCH([Field],Sheet1!A:AQ),MATCH([RecordID],Table1[RecordID],0))

## Index Match Lookup, Variable Return Column

Sep 3, 2009

I would imagine that the title of this thread made little sense, so let me try to explain:

Sheet A has columns A-C populated with data. Column D needs to search Sheet B columns A-C for a match. (ie, see if the data on sheet A is also on sheet B) if this is true, then it needs to return the value of the LAST column of the matched row in Sheet B.

So, if Sheet A R1 A-C is 1,2,3. Sheet A R1 D needs to search Sheet B for 1,2,3. and when it finds it, (for example on row 9) return the value of the last column of Sheet B row 9. The issue is, the last value could be in column R or S or AA, there is just no way of knowing.

## Index Match - Increasing The Column Count Through A Vertical Autofill

Jul 28, 2014

So I am putting togther a process matrix template for a Value stream analysis. I would use brute for and simple tricks to make this work but I am handing it off in two weeks to a student and I want this to be as strait forward and as easy to use as possible.

________C_______D_______E________F______G___
_____Part#1___Part#2___Part#3___Part#4___Part#5
Drill 1___1_______2________0_______3_______0__
Drill 2___0_______3________0_______1_______1__
Drill 3___0_______0________0_______4_______2__
Lathe 1__0_______1________1_______0_______0__
Lathe 2__1_______4________4_______0_______1__
Lathe 3__0_______0________5_______1_______0__

The first worksheet has a list of about 180 machines running vertically, and enough space for 20-50 part numbers to plugged in running horizontally across the top. The next three worksheets have the machines organized and grouped together by processes. I planned to use an Index-Match such as =INDEX('Individual Machines'!D\$6:D\$194,MATCH("Drill 1",'Individual Machines'!\$C\$6:\$C\$194,0))

The goal would be to get the user manually fill in the first worksheet, and then allow the user to use the vertical autofill function to fill in data on the later worksheets. This would provide a flexible template that can be re-used for different and various product families.

So populate something like this with a downward autofill for the number of times the part# hits a machine.

_______Drill 1___Lathe 2___Lathe 3___
Part#1___1________1________0____
Part#2___2________4________0____
Part#3___0________4________5____
Part#4___3________0________1____
Part#5___0________0________1____

## Index/Match: Match Column "G" To Column "L" And Count Column "H" Based On The Table To The Right

Apr 3, 2009

I am having a little trouble with tying an index/match formula that would probably require an "if" portion to the formula as well.

If you take a look at the attachment, I'm trying to match column "G" to column "L" and then use the appropriate price according to the specified piece count in column "H" based on the table to the right.

## Excel 2003 :: Double Lookup (Index / Match Or VLookup) Within Same Column?

Mar 15, 2013

I have two spreadsheets, one with master file with original data and one that needs to pull in the original data. My issue is all the data to match off of is in the same column, and a number of other files link to the master file, plus it is used externally, so I cannot alter it, and I would rather not create a mock/copy file. Is there a formula that can look for 2 different items within the same column? Would prefer not to use VBA, but if that's the only option I'll take it. I am using Excel 2003.

Here is an example of the setup - I would need the formula to reference off the two different items/categories in the column, so lookup off the 'St. Louis' and following that, lookup off the produce items.

## Excel 2010 :: INDEX MATCH Only Returns First Value Instead Of All Matching Values In Selected Column

Jul 18, 2014

Excel 2010: I'm working with a sheet where I would like to get accurate results on the make and model of cars sold in a given week. The workbook contains several worksheets each representing weekly sales numbers for different vehicles.

The Make-Models tab has the lists used to create the drop-down selections.

The Sales tab allows one to create an ad hoc report on the total number of vehicles sold, by Make and Model. Cell B2 is named 'SelectedModel' and used in the formula found in column E, Total Sold.

Problem: When I select Honda, for example in B2 of the Sales worksheet then select Accord in cell B3 of the same. The results returned in E2, E3 and E4 are 2, 3 and 4, respectively, instead of 8, 3 and 7.

2 Honda Accords were sold on Monday and 6 on Tuesday of the same week. My formula is only returning the first matched value of 2 whereas I would like it to return 2+6, 8 for week 1. Same goes for other weeks.

Select any other make and model and notice the problem follows. I believe the error is due to incorrect usage of the formula or incorrect formula altogether.

IF(ISNA(INDEX(Week1!E:E,MATCH(SelectedModel,Week1!B:B,0))),0,
INDEX(Week1!E:E,MATCH(SelectedModel,Week1!B:B,0)))
