# Using Index Match But There Are Multiple Matches - Want Most Recent

Jun 8, 2014

what i'm trying to do with an index match formula. My index match formula goes through a list and returns a date based on an email address. My issue I have is what if there are multiple entries that match that email address? How do I return the most recent date?

e.g. worksheet 1 has all the data

A B C

email ID date

worksheet 2 has a list of specific email addresses i'm looking for info on

A B

email date

My formula in column B of worksheet 2 is along the lines of this:

index(worksheet1 C:C,match(worksheet2 A1, worksheet 1 A:A,false))

basically saying where you find the email address in A1 listed in column A of worksheet 1, return in B1 the value in the column of that row in worksheet1.

The thing is we could have the same email address listed a number of times, so i'm looking for the latest date to be returned, not the first one it finds.

## Multiple Matches For Index / Match

Jan 16, 2012

I am trying to get a formula to work that looks up a vendor, and then checks the quantity of their order (less than 99999999, less 500, less than 200, and less than 50). I get either a #NAME or #N/A when I try to use what I have written. I tried to include an =index(array,AND(Match(row 1,exact match),Match(row 1 less than quantity),Match(row 1,greater than quantity)),Match(rate,exact match)) returning the variable rate. I have had no luck using vlookup and pivot tables.

## Index Match - Multiple Criteria And Multiple Matches

Dec 2, 2013

I would like to extract Bill cost from "rule" sheet and insert it to "data" sheet using index-match functions. My problem are multiple criteria and multiple matches.

The criteria are Column: Cost type, Power, Penalty Category (The logic goes like AND function).

And I want it to extract "Bills" value from "rule" sheet.

There are multiple matches in all columns (Cost type, Power, Penalty Category) which cause wrong extraction.

How do i solve this problem with index-match function?

## Vlookup Or Index/match With Most Recent Record

Feb 7, 2007

I have a list of people and the dates they completed activities on. I would like to do a vlookup (or index/match) that returns the most recent event. For example, if I was after the most recent date that 'rogers' went 'fishing' it would be 03 Feb 07....

## INDEX With Multiple Criteria And Returning Multiple Rows But Only The Two Most Recent

Jun 10, 2013

I have a spreadsheet of prices (raw data), and I need to pull out both the most recent price for each item for a specific customer code for each item, as well as the second most recent price, (essentially the old price), for that customer code for each item.

I have columns for ITEM (code), PTC (Customer Code), PRICE, and EFF (Effective Date). For each item code, there are multiple prices for multiple customers, such as in the linked workbook.

I am currently using the formula, =INDEX(PRICE,MATCH(1,(F2=ITEM)*(G2=PTC),0)) to pull out the last price. This works because the last price is on top based on sorting. What I need is a formula that pulls out the next oldest price for that item/ptc combo. I tried using the SMALL function to no success.

## Index / Match In Macro With Duplicate Matches

Jun 3, 2014

My user has a worksheet that is hundreds of rows long. Column A contains the SerialNumber, col D contains the PartNo and col E contains the SerialNo. She wants her formula in col B to match the SerialNumber with SerialNo then return the value from PartNo into col B. =Index(PartNo,Match(A2,SerialNo,0)) gets me the match that I'm looking for so I thought I was done. Not so...she now tells me that there are duplicate, triplicate, etc., matches and the formula obviously is only pulling in the first match.

When she has a duplicate, she needs to have cells inserted into Col A & B. She does not want a whole row inserted because the PartNo and SerialNo will already be in the right places. I've tried inserting a helper column to enumerate the duplicates but I can't it to work. I also tried using ROWS in the formula to work with the duplicates but that only confused me. I'm pretty sure I'll need a macro to do this but I'm getting nowhere.

## Index IF Match Formula / Returning Room Number That Matches The Hours Used

Mar 21, 2014

I am trying to find a formula that populates a room number based on the number of hours used. I have a chart that is by building but multiple rooms within each.

Where I am having trouble is when there are more than one room with the same number of hours used then sometimes the formula populates the wrong room number.

Attached is my example spreadsheet of my chart. Book1.xlsx

I have shown what I need, what I have tried and a blank space to show where I need it to go.

## Show Multiple Index Matches

Jun 17, 2014

I am trying to populate a worksheet that takes information from a table on another worksheet. I have to match three columns and show multiple entries for each correct match. Attached is a sample worksheet.

Invoice.xlsx

The information should be on the "Invoice" sheet. The cells in green are what will be given. The cells in yellow are what should be grabbed from table 1 on "June Sands Tracking Sheet"

The delivery date, Customer and truck number are the given fields.

from there I want it to search the table and populate "Truck BOL #","Sand Yard","Time In Staging", "Time Out of Location", and "Sand Type"

I tried this formula in the BOL # column but it wouldn't work
=IF(OR(C10={"",""}),"",IF(COUNTIFS(Table1[Delivery Date],\$B\$7,Table1[Truck '#],\$E\$7)=0,"No Entry",IFERROR(INDEX(Table1[BOL'#],SMALL(IF(Table1[Delivery Date]=\$B\$7,IF(Table1[Truck '#]=\$E\$7,ROW(Table1[BOL'#])-MIN(ROW(Table1[BOL'#]))+1)),ROWS(C\$11:C19))),"")))

## How To Use Index Function When Have Multiple Matches

Sep 27, 2012

So here is how I have a template laid out:

A
B
C
D
E
F

ROW 1

Period 10
Period 11

[Code] ........

I have a SumIF statement in cell E4 but I would much prefer some sort of index or something where I can drag the formula down because the cells in column D will change (and require me to pick a different SUM range for my SUMIF function). Now my issue is I have multiple matches so when I use a typical index it returns the FIRST match.

Here is the formula I used in cell E11 to try and replicate the result in E5:

My index function works as it is designed but only returns the FIRST match. I should have multiple matches.

Is there a way to use an index function to return multiple results?

To clarify,the index function I put in cell F4 returns only ONE column (which is correct and will always be correct), which is related to the cell D4 but I have multiple rows (related to "7002" row match portion of the index function).

## Index And / Or Match Formula With Multiple Match Required To Return A Value

Jan 21, 2014

See attached file, "Rate Sample Index-Match Formula".

I need a formula to return the value at the cross section of two (2) lookup values that match. This formula will be input into column D under, "RATE" on the 1st tab, "TEST FILE".

In the 1st tab, "TEST FILE" there are a series of columns as follows;

A = Service
B = From
C = To
D = Rate

In the 2nd tab, "RATES" there is a series of rates with drivers From (green) & To (blue)

The formula needs to do the following;

1. Lookup the "From" value in column B on tab, "TEST FILE" and match to column B2:B59 on tab, "RATES" both highlighted in green
2. Then Lookup the "To" value in column C on tab, "TEST FILE" and match to row C1:BH1 on tab, "RATES" both highlighted in blue
3. Then return the value at the cross section of the match "From" (point 1 above) & "To" (point 2 above) in range C2:BH59

For Example;

The rate From SYD To CBR = 0.33. I have highlighted this in yellow on both tabs to show where the formula needs to lookup the data to return the answer.

## If Match Then SUM? - Wanting To Add Multiple Values If Criteria Matches

Mar 26, 2009

Column A would be Recipe Numbers, Column B the Planned Total.

I want to search column A for all matching recipe numbers.
Then, any recipes that match, look in column B for the planned totals, adding all incidents where they match.

Then the most difficult part, which just occured to me now.
I only need the Total Planned Total and Recipe name reported once.

Recipe#..........Planned Total
450................100
600................75
620................125
450................50
620................180
450................100
600................200
450................110

I will not be able to sort these lists.

If-Match-Sum? to display:
Recipe#............Total Planned Total
450....................360
600....................275
620....................305

I've researched for the first part... and it seems like Match will only find the first match and not look further? Am I wrong on this?
How to display the results hadn't even occured to me yet, since I was still trying to figure out how to GET the result.

## Index With Multiple Match

Mar 28, 2012

I tried searching some other Index/Match threads but figured I did not want to confuse the other original posters. I can index/match on a single set of criteria but what I am trying to do it add an additional match criteria into the equation and that is the last "MATCH" in my formula pasted below (MATCH(\$B3&"",O1:S1,0).

1)I need to match the value in Column A to Column N

2)Then for that combination, I need to match the combination value in Column B which ranges across Column O thru Column S

a.Ex. Cell A3

i.0001 matches to 0001 and B3 #50000 pulls in the value from Q3 (which would be 2)

Formula in J3

=INDEX(\$N:\$S,MATCH(\$A3,\$N:\$N,),MATCH(\$A3,\$N:\$N,),MATCH(\$B3&"",O1:S1,0))

## Multiple Criteria Index Match?

Mar 7, 2013

I am trying to return a reference to the first cell that meets several conditions. I can calculate a column (say Col E) that tells if each row meets condition with

=IF(AND(IF('number of cases by year'!B28:B547>'cumulative distribution >0 '!F51,TRUE,FALSE),IF('number of cases by year'!\$A\$2:\$A\$521>=DATE('% of cases captured'!\$C\$3,'% of cases captured'!\$A\$3,'% of cases captured'!\$B\$3),TRUE,FALSE)),TRUE,FALSE)

Then to find the first time this is met I use

=MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(E2:E521,0),0)

Is there a way to do this all in one step? I tried

=MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(IF(AND(IF('number of cases by year'!B20:B539>'cumulative distribution >0 '!F43,TRUE,FALSE),IF('number of cases by year'!\$A\$2:\$A\$521>=DATE('% of cases captured'!\$C\$3,'% of cases captured'!\$A\$3,'% of cases captured'!\$B\$3),TRUE,FALSE)),TRUE,FALSE),0),0)

but it does not seem to work. It returns #VALUE

## Using Multiple Match Searches In Index

Jan 10, 2014

To summarize - Columns B through E are current MLB Players who I am trying to compare with the data in Columns G though J. My goal is to both use index and match to find the following in Column L: A comparable player name using the criteria of having an exact match for both position and age, but the closest approximation match between Columns E and J.

I have deleted a significant amount of player data to be able to upload the document on this site.

I am trying to find a way to combined exact and approximate matches in one single formula, but have been unsuccessful thus far.

## Index Match And Multiple Criteria

May 23, 2014

I am making a table that reads from an list of employees. I have attached a sample sheet (changed the names). The list includes Name, 2014 Start Date, Pay Type, Job Title, Location, Weeks, Hours, Avg. Hours.

I need a formula that will list employees on a separate sheet based on the following criteria:

2014 Start Date = 1/1/2014
Avg. Hours >=30

I have worked with a number of INDEX MATCH combinations but I cannot get the formula to quit at 30 Avg. Hours whenever I drag the formula down. I also have seen some employees that average over 30 hours get "skipped" over whenever I drag the formula down.

## 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 Match With Multiple Criteria?

Jul 1, 2014

I need to write a formula using Index Match that is looking at to criteria field. I've done this formula before with one criteria field but now I need 2 and the way I'm writing it isn't working.

=(INDEX('Agent Weekly DataSheet'!G:G,MATCH('Agent Weekly Overall Scores'!B8,IF('Agent Weekly DataSheet'!F:F='Agent Weekly Overall Scores'!G8,IF('Agent Weekly DataSheet'!B:B='Agent Weekly Overall Scores'!C8,'Agent Weekly DataSheet'!B:B),0))))

## 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.

## Index / Match Or VLookup For Multiple Criteria

Jun 9, 2014

Getting a formula that will generate the corresponding rating attached to a row value and columns header as per below example:

EnglishSS1 EnglishSS2 EnglishSS3 Rating
10 20 30 3
20 30 40 2
30 40 50 1

Where my variables would be based on whether a person is under EnglishSS1 and getting a score of <=10, the resulting rating would be 3. I know this is doable by doing a vlookup with a range lookup value of false. However I have roughly 70 column headers and it will be a bit taxing to combine an If and Vlookup statement to address it.

I have attached a sample sheet for reference : Book1.xlsxâ€Ž

## INDEX And MATCH With Same Table On Multiple Sheets?

Aug 25, 2014

I have a workbook (workbook1) with multiple sheets (sheet a, sheet b, sheet c), all with the same column headings. One of the columns in each sheet of this workbook contains an invoice number.

In a different workbook(workbook2) I need to find the invoice details based on sheets a-c from workbook1.

So, in workbook2 I can input the invoice number in column a and the rest of the details will be pulled through based on whichever sheet (a-c) from workbook1 that the details are in.

Workbook1 is normally closed (from reading others posts, the INDIRECT function might do what I need but would not work with workbook1 closed)

Working with just 1 sheet in workbook 1, the following formula works perfectly:

=INDEX('[workbook1.xlsx]sheet a'!\$V:\$V,MATCH(A2,'[workbook1.xlsx]sheet a'!\$W:\$W,0))

How to do the same, but looking in sheet a, b and c at the same time for the answer?

## Index / Match And Concatenate On Multiple Answers

Mar 4, 2014

I have 2 worksheets, Worksheet 1 has Customer Magic Number on it as a reference and a few customer details and Worksheet 2 has Customer magic number and contact fields.

I am currently using the formula

=INDEX(\$C\$3:\$C\$575, SMALL(IF(N2=\$D\$3:\$D\$575, ROW(\$D\$3:\$D\$575)-MIN(ROW(\$D\$3:\$D\$575))+1, ""), COLUMN(A1)))

to show the contact codes in sheet 1 however I also need to show the Notes which are located in Columns G:I, Is there an easy to use the index & match functions as above with the concatenate function to add the notes in the cell beside where I am inputting the contact codes?
