# Using Lookup Function In A Larger Formula

Nov 10, 2008

I am currently using the following formula:

=SUMPRODUCT(('Step 1_Data_Current Qtr'!T2:T10000=B2)*('Step 1_Data_Current Qtr'!C2:C10000<>"")*1)

...to count the number of instances in a data set where:

T2:T10000=B2 is counting records where the value in the cell is set to B2

and

C2:C10000<>"" is counting records where the value in the cell is not blank.

The current formular is working, but I want to change the formula so that the values in C2:C10000 is looking up specific names (in this case, physicians) and not just where the field is not blank. How can I change to lookup physicians in a specific list that may change, located in a separate tab from the main data set?

## Formula For Lookup And Count Function In New Updates

Nov 11, 2008

Having trouble getting a formula to work that will lookup a site number and count the number of times the site has a particular type of visit. For instance:

Site # Visit
1001 Active
1001 Active
1001 Discont.
1001 Screen Fail
1001 Active
1002 Discont.
1002 Active
1002 Screen Fail
1002 Active

I want a formula that will return the number of active instances for each site, like:

Site # # of Active Visits
1001 3
1002 2

## Multi Condition Lookup Formula/Function

Dec 11, 2007

I consider myself a beginning intermediate Excel user and am really learning a lot through this forum but have not run accross the answer to what I'm trying to achieve. I would like to return the value in the "Temp" column that meets all the conditions of the columns "letter", "day", and "time." Specifically, the "Temp" of "A", "Weekday", "East." I have attached a small spreadsheet. It seems Vlookup is the approach to use in combination with multiple if conditions or an array. But I am not yet comfortable with such a complex equation. Can someone provide me with some guidance or an equation that would work. So far this is how I've been learning. Looking at equations and deciphering how they are written.

## Lookup Function/Formula Across Multiple Worksheets

May 14, 2008

This formula works on 1 sheet but we are unable to make it work looking across multiple worksheets? Looking for a match to A3 in column G and wanting to pull the info from column E in the same row.

=IF('2'!G3:G271=A3, LOOKUP(A3,'2'!G3:G271,'2'!E3:E271),0)

## Formula / Function To Pull In Multiple Lookup Values

Aug 21, 2014

I am trying to replicate a payslip from a list of data on a worksheet.

The list of data contains the employee name, location they worked, and number of hours.

Each employee will work at multiple locations throughout the month, perhaps 10 or so.

The payslip must contain each location worked along with the relevant data, in a list so to speak.

What function can I use to pull this in? Of course if it were one location I would use vlookups to pull in data. As this only returns the top match I would then need a different formula to pull in the second location in the cell underneath?

## LOOKUP / MATCH Function To Lookup The Owner Name Typed In Cell

Jan 2, 2009

I have a workbook with 2 different types of sheet - 1 containing source data and the others 'collecting' data from the source sheet, depending on what the sheet is for.

For example, the data source contains different pets, their names, ages and their owners.

The other sheets are on a one-per-owner basis.

What I would like to do is use a LOOKUP / MATCH function to lookup the owner name typed in cell A1 of the output sheet and match it with the corresponding owner name(s) on the source sheet. I would then like it to return with each pet and append the results on the sheet accordingly - like below:

John Smith (in cell A1)

Pet - Name - Age
-------------------
Dog - Rover - 3
Goldfish - Tom - 1
Gerbil - Chewit - 4

## Lookup Table (adjust Which Column The Lookup Function Refers To)

Jun 12, 2009

I am trying to perform a lookup (vlookup) function in a cell in excel and wish to have the range as a variable, so that I can adjust which column the lookup function refers to.

## Find And Replace Formula For Locating Short Text Within Larger Text?

Jan 7, 2014

I have an existing Cash Flow Report that has a column of abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title where each cell contains a unique three lettered/numbered amount of characters (Example: 200). These three abbreviated character cells are specific and relate to their full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title (Example: WBS DWRRI-BW066-200).

In my attached excel model (Find, Locate, and Align WBS Elements to Cash Flow Report.xlsx), I need a formula for the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru B11 that will look at the abbreviated three lettered/numbered (WBS Element) titles in cells C3 thru C11, then search and recognize its unique counterpart contained in the, "SAP WBS Elements Export" sheet and return this full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title to the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru. B11, just to the left of its abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title.

## 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.

## Set Up A Lookup Function With Two Lookup Values?

Apr 18, 2008

Is it possible to set up a lookup function with two lookup values? For example, say I have a list of items such as:

1 A 14
1 B 22
2 C 84
4 D 25

I'd like to have the lookup go to the above table and find the number 1 and the letter B and return 22. I can't seem to visualize how to make this work.

## Lookup Formula With Two Lookup Values

Nov 12, 2008

I have 3 Sheets named Paid, Rejected, and Reprocessed.

On the Paid and Rejected sheets I have 2 fields Customer # (Column A), and Amount (Column Q). (The customer # field has many duplicates but the amounts are never duplicates)

On the Reprocessed sheet I have all the rejected items (all fields) and also a field named Reprocessed. I need to use a formula that will check the Paid sheet for any items that have the same Customer # and Amount and return the amount

There are 8,216 rejected items and 45,047 paid items. Some items were originally rejected have been reprocessed and show under paid.

Any thoughts on which formula I should use?

## V Lookup Or IF Function

Feb 3, 2009

Can I get all the information from Employee & Benefits tab to populate in the 401K worksheet. All information is on these two sheets except status, plan entry date, and 2009 compensation.

True under Employees tab means that a person is still active and I would like for that date to populate the 'Hire Date' column; whereas, 'False' represents a person is termed and I would like for the false date to populate under termed. Can you use the social security number if its a V Lookup because I have thousands of rows and multiple people with the same last name.

## Use Lookup Function In VB

Apr 22, 2009

How do I write a code for the following Excel formula:

=LOOKUP(E20,{0,2501,5001},{"CatA","CatB","CatC"})

I tried the following but not working

## Lookup Sum Function

Oct 23, 2008

I would like to do is reference a table of data using the Vlookup function but add all of the results together. I have a table where I keep track of orders being distributed, and in an inventory sheet I want it to reference that table based on the serial numbers entered and total the results.

## LOOKUP Function

Nov 21, 2008

A B C D E
1 DAY 1DAY 2DAY 3DAY 4
2 AAA1638
3 BBB7325
4 CCC3847
5 DDD5562

This is what I have. Now I want to see, for each day which has the highest value. so it should return BBB for day 1, CCC for day 2, DDD for day 3 and AAA for day 1.The formula I am using:

=lookup(max(B2:B5),B2:B5,A2:A5)
=lookup(max(C2:C5),C2:C5,A2:A5)
=lookup(max(D2:D5),D2:D5,A2:A5)
=lookup(max(E2:E5),E2:E5,A2:A5)

Tell you what, it is giving me correct result for column B,C,D but not for E. The formula for column E should return AAA, but for some reason it is returning DDD.

## Using Lookup Function

Jul 14, 2006

I just wanted to use lookup function in my code. But I had to re-write my for..next statement 8 times. How can I state it in one single lookup function used in a for..next statement. Here is my code

Sub iteration(r)
Dim i As Integer
Dim j As Integer
Dim x1(4) As Double
Dim arra(8, 2) As Double
Dim arrb(8, 4) As Double
r(1) = Worksheets("sonuc"). Range("j4").Value
r(2) = Worksheets("sonuc").Range("j6").Value
Dim myRange As Range
Set myRange = Worksheets("giderler").Range("b6:b11")
x1(1) = Application.WorksheetFunction.Floor(r(1), 0.5)
x1(2) = Application.WorksheetFunction.Ceiling(r(1), 0.5)
x1(3) = Application.WorksheetFunction.Floor(r(2), 0.5)
x1(4) = Application.WorksheetFunction.Ceiling(r(2), 0.5)
For i = 1 To 4

## Lookup Function Or Something

Sep 21, 2006

I have 2 worksheets, 1 containing a list of 5000 products and 1 containing a list of 3 columns with classifications in them (about 300 classifications). for example worksheet 1 has 5 products

Coke
Volvic
Mars Bar
Cornflakes
Bags Maltesers

The 2nd worksheet has 3 columns with the following info
Column 1 Column 2 Column3
(Catagory) (sub Cat) (Sub Sub Cat)
Minerals Soft Drinks 2lts
Minerals Water 1lts
Sweets Choc Bars Std Bars
Sweets Bagged Lines Std Bags
Grocery Breakfast Cereals

I want to be able to add a classification to the products in worksheet 1. For example to be able to choose a dropdown that has a list of each classification
and after coke select from the "Catagory) drop down, then select the "Sub Cat" drop down and then select the "SubSub Cat" dropdown.

Product Catagory Sub Catagory SubSub Catagory
Coke Minerals Soft Drinks 2lts
Mars Sweets Choc Bars Std Bars

As I said I have to do this manually for about 5000 items so I need to be able to do this as fast as I can. Can you use the lookup fuctions or something like that?

## #REF! In Lookup Function

Jun 27, 2007

how to fix the REF error in this formula. =IF((OR(G3="Hour (Truck)",G3="Hour (Truck + Dog)")),(VLOOKUP(G3,Rates!\$A\$186:\$B\$187,2,FALSE)),(IF(F3="Hanson",3.5,(IF(F3="Lakes",10,(IF(F3="NO",(VLOOKUP(E3,TonnesRates,MATCH(B3,Rates!\$B\$110:\$D\$110),FALSE))))))))). I have tried to attach the file with the minimal information in it to make it small enough but I can't get it below 48kb.

## Lookup Formula: Find The Longitude And Latitude Data From My "lookup" Sheet

Jan 28, 2009

In my workbook I have multiple sheets but I'm attaching a very simple workbook to demonstrate what I'm trying to accomplish. In my "Lookup" tab/sheet. I want to have known Latitude and Longitude data that will exist in columns A&B. Columns C & D will have address numbers and Street Name. I would like my lookup formula to find the longitude and latitude data from my "lookup" sheet, when the matching address information is typed in, in my 2009 sheet. I have to keep the street numerics and street name separate on this worksheet as well. I believe I'll need two separate lookup formulas as I need these formulas to start in cell G4 & H4 in my "GeoCoding1" sheet. Is it possible to have four columns of data to be viewed in a lookup formula? I tried this formula in cell G4 (GeoCoding1 sheet)

## Lookup Function For Two Columns And One Row?

Aug 1, 2014

I have read through other similar topics and tried using the index and match function to lookup but been unable to make the formula work.

I am trying to use the lookup function to pull data from a table using criteria in two columns and one row. I have attached a spreadsheet for example.

I want to use criteria of Day (eg . 1), Total height (cm), and jar # (eg. 1). I inherited this table from a previous coworker and don't have time to organize the data better.

In the spreadsheet I want to return the value of 8.8 (highlighted in yellow). The criteria I want to use to lookup the value are highlighted in red.

## Lookup-function Used On Months

Mar 25, 2009

The following Lookup-function does not work properly. Ay idea why? My Input in E13 is months.

=LOOKUP(E13, {"Jan","Feb","Mar","Apr","May","Jun","Jul","Aug","Sep","Oct","Nov","Dec"},{"012","001"," 002","003","004","005","006","007","008","009","010","011"})

## Lookup Value And Count Function

Nov 12, 2009

I am creating a spreadsheet to keep track of money and grouping them into categories. I have a column to group a purchase into a category (column E) and the amount spent in column F. I want column T to add up all of the purchase that were made according to the category in Column E.

## Looking Up Data That A Lookup Function Won't!

Dec 7, 2006

I have store numbers and store volume groups (one letter indicating their sales volume). This is sorted in somewhat of a table - the volume groups are in row 4 going horizontal, the store numbers are under their respective volume groups going vertical.

I have all store numbers listed vertically on another sheet, starting in A2. I want to search for the store number in A2 within the volume group data and return the appropriate group header when it's found.

## Lookup Function For Three Columns

Nov 16, 2012

A
B
C

Ap1
queens Carrots
Goja Apple

Ap2
fujja Apple
fujja Apple

Ca23
Goja Apple
queens Carrots

I tried to write a function so that it would search for a word from Column C in Column B, and then when it found it, give me a a combined result of Column A and B. For instance. I lookup up C1 (Goja Apple) in the range of all of column B; the function finds it in B3 (Goja Apple); then it returns the combined result A3 and B3 (Ca23 Goja Apple). I tried the =lookup, but I think the first column you select must be in ascending order, and that wont work for me.

## MID Function For Different Lookup Values?

Mar 26, 2014

In my spreadsheet, one cell in every row has a string that contains the invoice number. I would like to get the invoice number in a cell of it's own. The problem is that different vendors use different lengths of characters for their inv #, so I can't do a one size fits all MID formula.

What would be the best way of getting the invoice number?

## Set A Range To Use In A Lookup Function

Apr 10, 2007

I'm trying to set a range to use in a Lookup function but it's not working. I've done this other times with no trouble and I don't see why it's not working now.

If Target.Row > 2 And Target.Count > 1 Then
For Each c In selection

If c.Column = 11 Then
' confirm that Activity ID is in the Reference file list
Set Lookup_Vector1 = Worksheets(c.Worksheet.Name).Range("Activity_ID")
Error occurs on the Set Lookup_Vector1 line, Run-time error '1004': Application-defined or object-defined error.

The range Activity_ID is defined in the current worksheet but exists in another workbook. The c.Worksheet.Name correctly gives the name of the worksheet where the range is defined.

## Function With COUNTIF And LOOKUP

Jul 3, 2008

Look at 6 weeks of data, using "Tue" as the search parameter. I need to find the last 3 tuesdays (from current cell) and then sum the corresponding values in the cell I designate.

I'm fluent with LOOKUP and already have it finding and summing last few Tuesdays and corresponding sales totals, but I need it to only back THREE Tuesdays consistently, not 2 or 4, which it is sometimes doing now??? How do I force it to look back at "tue" and when it has found three times, it knows to stop and not consider any other Tuesdays it may find further back in the data?

## Modify A Lookup Function

Nov 1, 2008

i use the formula below in a wb. When it runs its searches col A for what ever is in H36. Is there a way to make it search col A & B for what ever is in H36?

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(H36,'PRICE-GAS'!\$A\$149:\$N\$6000,5,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(H36,'PRICE-GAS'!\$A\$149:\$N\$6000,5,FALSE))

## Lookup Function - Looking For Next Highest Value

Apr 23, 2006

Im just setting up a spreadsheet for structural timber design calculations. One of the requirements for this spreadsheet is to look up a Zx value from a table. Once the Zx value is found it returns a size of timber from another column. I have managed to create the function so that it looks up the Zx value and returns the size. However, if the function cant find the exact Zx value, which will usually be the case. The next lowest Zx value is used. Is there a way i can edit this function so that it returns the next highest Zx value instead of the next lowest. At the moment this is the code i am using.

= LOOKUP(Q92, 'Zxx Table'!E5:E172,'Zxx Table'!C5:C172)

Where Q92 is the value to be looked up. E5:E172 is the column of values to be searched. C5:C172 is the column of values where the result comes from. In addition to this just to further complicate things, can it return say the next 5 highest values? If a lookup function cant be used could you tell me another way that i can achieve this.
