I have a Vlookup which I want to modify so that it can become dynamic as the table array part of the vlookup will change.
So the basic vlookup is as follows: =VLOOKUP($R$3,ATTRIBUTION_FACTSET!$M$60:$P$73,2,0) but the data I am looking for wont always be in the range M60:P73.
So I tried to make it dynamic by doing the following: =VLOOKUP($R$3,INDIRECT("ATTRIBUTION_FACTSET"&"!M"&U1&":P"&V1),2,FALSE) The idea being that U1 and V1 would be numbers that can change so in this case U1 would equal 60 and V1 would equal 73
This vlookup is giving me #N/A and no matter how I modify it I cannot get it to work.
troubleshooting dependent validation list formula. I found the Ozgrid instructions for the Dependent Validation Lists to be verfy informative and I downloaded the "MatchingLists.xls" to use as a starting point.
My challenge is this: The MatchingLists.xls example does not take into account that there may be MULTIPLE dependent lists that have spaces, numbers and other unique characters in the list's source celles. Therefore, I have decided to reference a NameLookup (named range) that has an abbrevieated name for each each item (without numbers & spaces) I am nesting VLOOKUP within the INDIRECT formula to achieve the results I need - but for some reason it fails occasionally and I do not know how to troubleshoot!
Data Validation Source =INDIRECT(VLOOKUP(SUBSTITUTE(E5," ","_"),NameLookup,2,0))
Excel's Data Validation simply returns the message "The source currently evaluates to an error". This is frustrating becuase it is not consistent. It works with some lists and not with others. How do I troubleshoot???
My worksheet is attached for your reference. The source data for the dependent lists is on the Lists sheet. The dependent drop-downs are in columns E-H on the drop-down sheet. The formula that I am having trouble with is in "Subcategory" (column F). For some reason, I cannot choose category "26_Heat_Exchangers" to populate the subcategories. There are a few other categories that this formula breaks on and I don't know why. Please tell me this is not some crazy limitation with Named Ranges.
I am having issues using the INDIRECT function to lookup data from a sheet with the same name as that appearing in a given cell. For example, in cell D27 i have the text "S1_358_810" (Not including quotations). I also have a sheet named "S1_358_810". My formula is as follows;
However this is returning #N/A. There is a list of numbers in sheet S1_358_810 in column N and from that I want the value in column Q (thus 17).
I have two workbook, test1 (master file) and the other one is test_10_05_2014 with 100 some of them being updated daily. The last portion of the file "test_10_05_2014" is the date and we have different file on daily basis.
using Indirect function in vlookup should give corresponding value for the particular name. Formula used is giving error,
I have used the 'VLOOKUP' function many times with success (eventually), but this time I might not be able to do what I want.
So, my question is this: using VLOOKUP, can I lookup 2 or more different table arrays in the 1 formula?
What I have is a member database of 140,000 , they all have a unique member ID number (eg. APL098829) and the program that contains these members has them broken down into 300+ .csv files (eg. APL_001.csv, APL_002, APL_003, etc)
When they come to an event their card is scanned. The members in my area are usually around the same numbers (ie. APL_097, APL_098). So this is why I would like to search these 2 database for their member ID and Return their name.
Not sure if this makes sense, after all it's 0150am here and I think I have nodded off a couple of times writing this.
I am trying to write a Macro that will do the following.
1. Using a new workbook 2. Open a file in a in a directory. Then 3. Run a vlookup using the opened file as the filename in the vlookup 4. Paste the results of the vlookup into the original file next to the file name. 5. Close the file and open the next one in the folder.
The folder contains about 2k files that it needs to loop through. I found a macro on this site created by Ravishankar and attempted to add to it. Not going so well.
I'm trying to create a macro that will find the parent folder of the active workbook, zip all files within that workbook, then email that zipped file to a distribution list that is located in a separate file within the same drive. ideally, afterwards it would also delete the zip file that had just been created. The vlookup would reference a stationary cell within each of the files i use (same tab name and cell location) 'Summary'!B2
I'm trying to compare two very large files to find some that are in one AND also in the other. I'm using =VLOOKUP(C2,Parts2!C:D,1,FALSE) and my results are #N/A for all of them. I have formatted both columns as 'General' because there can be letters and numbers in the serial number, I have also tried formatting as text to no avail. I have confirmed no preceding or trailing spaces or other special characters.
I am however, able to locate values in both documents using Ctrl F. I'm totally puzzled because I've always been able to figure out what's causing my Vlookup issues when I have them but this time I'm not able to.
I have six files that are formatted the same(fld1-1.xlsx, fld1-2.xlsx...). Each file contains an I.D. number (random 25 digit number) in column A and a note (1-9) in column B. The only thing that changes between files is the note column. I want to pull from these six files into a master file. When all six files are combined the note column in the master file is complete, there are no duplicates. Because a blank vlookup returns a zero, could I use an IF formula. Something like IF VLOOKUP FROM data01(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data02. IF VLOOKUP FROM data02(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data03.
I have about 85 files that I need to rename. These files contain data concerning delivery and quality data of each of our suppliers...1 file per supplier.
Current File Name: SupplierA 2012.xlsx New File Name: Supplier A 2013.xlsx
Is there a way to do mass rename the files..
and that leads to my second question...each of these files contain vlookups to 2012 data...which is contained in the a file with 2012 in the file name. I need to replace source data file (i.e. 2012 Index) with the new file containing the 2013 data (i.e 2013 Index). Is there a way to replace that source data across 85 or so files using some time of mass find and repalce? All the cell references remain the same
I am trying to develop an Indirect Indirect Validation drop down list. Example, Building - Floor - Room, i.e. Select Building from a Validation drop down list. Then based upon the Building selected, select only the Floors applicable to the Building Selected. I am able to achieve this via an Indirect Validation drop down. However, when I attempt to then select the Rooms applicable to the Floor of the Building I selected, I can not produce an Indirect Validation off a previous Indirect Validation.
In the attachment, I have used Plant - Location - Room. I have name ranged the selections, and have used Validations Lists for Plant, and Indirect Validations for Location. The error occurs where I attempt to do an Indirect Validation for Room.
I have a sheet using VLookup to find EMail and Web addresses. I can get the address to show up but not as an active URL address. Is it possible to have the address "active" so I can click on it and activate the EMail or Web Site?
I’m trying to develop a workbook which holds monthly data on loan information. It tracks the interest and balance on the loan. I want the first page to have a table displaying the interest payments for every individual tab. When I was brainstorming the idea, I was considering a sort of Vlookup function to find the tab the account is on and then a further function, possibly another vlookup which connects the month to that month’s interest payment. Can anyone help me figure this out?
The attached spreadsheet is obviously simplified, there are well over 30 tabs. But I would like it to, ideally, search the account number column, search the workbook for that account number, and then when on that page use the month at the top of the first page and retrieve the interest payment and put it back in the cell. It’d also be great if the formula can be transferred between workbooks. I’m not sure if that makes sense; basically if I were to copy that worksheet into the next months book, I would like that the formula read those tabs instead of becoming obsolete due to references from the first workbook.
I have a number (22.3) in a cell that is there from an Hlookup function. I am then using a vlookup to lookup the 22.3 (from the hlookup) in a column. The number is in the column, but the vlookup function cant find it. If I were to type over my hlookup formula so that I am hand-typing in "22.3" instead of it being their from the hlookup, then the vlookup works just fine. I hope that is not too confusing. I dont understand what is going on. I checked to make sure none of my cells are rounding and therefore creating a look-alike number when it really isn't and that is not the case.
