# VLOOKUP / INDEX / MATCH Function: Match Data From 2 Independent Sets??

Oct 8, 2009

I am trying to match data from 2 independent sets, formatted slightly differently so not sure which function would work best for me. From the attached file, I am trying to match the date and time stamp (in cell A1) with that from the other data (in this example in cell E1) and return the data (from cell F1) to cell C1. So basically any date and time stamp before 04/03/09 04:00 will return a value of 44 (this value should appear, therefore in cells C1 - C30)

## 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.

## Nesting Index / Match Function Within Vlookup Function?

Dec 3, 2013

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.

[Code]....

This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. \$E3 is the date required, \$BA\$1:\$DN\$1 is the range the dates are entered in
Match: Lookup value = \$E3
Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$BA\$1:\$DN\$1
match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. \$A\$4 is the department name, \$B\$434:\$B\$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = \$A\$4
Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$B\$434:\$B\$452
match type = 0

Index: array = \$BA\$434:\$DN\$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

## VLOOKUP / INDEX And MATCH To Return All Values That Match

Feb 4, 2014

I have two sheets of data , sheet A and Sheet B.

Sheet B contains a column called "Name" and for each name, and for each name there are corresponding numbers. In sheet A, I have a "list of interest" in column A. What i want to do look through the data in sheetB to find a match from the list of interest and return the corresponding letters, located in column A.

I have filled out the first two rows of results that should be returned as an example.

One idea i had was to put a vlookup formula in each column result 1 to result 6 so i can catch all 6 "Serves" columns from column B, but there may be duplicates in the serve columns and vlookup only reports the first match.

## 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.

## VLookup To Pivot Table Using Match Function - Returns Error If Can't Find Match Value

Mar 11, 2014

I am having some trouble getting a formula to work. I am building a report that pulls figures from a pivot table in another workbook. I am using a vlookup with match function to get the column index to find the relevant data I want. Where I need to add two columns together I am using sum, with the vlookup & match formulas nested in them e.g.:

=SUM(VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("FAID",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("COMM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("BPCM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("COMD",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE))

Where:
F13 = Employee number
Column C on the pivot 156 workbook is where the employee number is based.
The Match formula is then getting the column index from the column headings of the pivot table ie. "FAID"

This in itself works fine, as long as it finds a match in the column headings. This is where i get the error as in the above function "COMD" is not in the pivot table. However I need to keep it included as it may appear on a future pivot table. Is there a way of getting the sum function to complete even though later in the formula it can't complete the vlookup? So it will ignore it, or assume the value is zero if it can't find it? The formula probably needs to do this for all the vlookups as some headings may drop off in future pivot tables.

## Index Match Vs D Function To Summarize Data

Oct 24, 2008

I have a project that has several worksheets of "summarized" data all pulled from one worksheet. The data worksheet is run through an external program and pasted into the workbook to update the information.

To this point I have used tons of index match array formula's to pull the information but I've found this to be extremely inefficient because there are hundreds if not thousands of formulas, and it takes several minutes to update. The file is also around 3MB which is way too big.

I was thinking about using VBA to simplify the worksheets, but then I came across an article about D_Functions and I'm thinking they may be the solution to my problems.

However there is one catch...I'm not sure how I would build these formulas to work in my worksheets. I understand the principle behind the D_Functions, but I can't seem to grasp the concept of integration and making it work in my scenario.

I've attached an example of this workbook, it has most of the forumla's deleted out to reduce the file size, but it should give you an idea of what I'm doing. Once you open it you'll have to unhide some columns to get to the nitty gritty of the sheet.

Feel free to take a gander...I'm open to any suggestions you may have at this point (except to trash the whole project hehehehe ). If you find a solution please explain the concept behind it. I really want to learn how to make this work rather than plugging in someone elses formulas.

## Copy Data Of Index Match Function According Date?

Jun 24, 2014

I have the first sheet named "DPF" where I have a column "Date", "FIT", "Group" On my second Sheet named "Tracker" what I do want to do:

I select a date for example 18-07-2014 (Cell E3), if cell E4 I Have "Fit" and F4 "Group" In C6 I have E3-15, to get the date minus 15 days (03-07-2014) In C7 I have E3-12 (06-07-2014) and so on

What I want is, if the date of today is C6 or C7 or whatever, use the index match function to get the number corresponding to the date chosen (18-07-2014) for the FIT. But, once I get the figure, I want to keep it, because with the if function, once we are the 4th of July, the figure for C6 disappears...

Fri
18-Jul
FITGroup
Start
D-1503-Jul
D-1206-Jul
D-909-Jul
D-612-Jul
D-615-Jul
D-216-Jul
D-117-Jul
D18-Jul

So either a macro to copy the specific data into another sheet or a another way to keep it. Because the idea as the end is to do different scenario based on the result got per period..

## How To Handle Duplicate Data Using Index And Match Function

How to deal with duplicate data in excel using index and match function. Is it possible to use the following function without having a unique value?

## Reconciling Large Amount Of Data When VLookup And Match / Index Not Ideal

Nov 12, 2013

I need a little coaching on big data. I have two reports, one from a production system the other from the invoicing system. I need to reconcile the two reports to ensure our invoicing ties out to production. At this time I am focusing on 1 particular item code, but there are potentially hundreds of item codes.

I have 1 Item Code.
I have a around a hundred invoices. (Sample 100)
I have a few hundred different customers. (Sample 100)
I have several hundred lines of billing data. (Sample 650)
I have several thousand lines of production data. (Sample 40,000)
In the billing system, per invoice I might have 1 or more billing lines for this item, usually no more than 2.
In the production system, per invoice I might have 5 to 50 or more production lines for this item per invoice.

Example
Prod System:
30 lines of data has a run amount and a total run amount for each line.

I am looking for tools to reconcile this data. VLookup and Index/Matching is not cutting it. VLOOKUP does not move beyond the first line found. Index/Matching wants to add all the prod together. I can get subtotals easy enough. I have tried Concatenation, but when it takes multiple production data lines to equal 1 billing line, this does not work. I needs some thing that can look at the Qty on a billing invoice and tie it out to various lines of production data to identify which production jobs went on that line of the invoice.

Here is a sample. These are fairly easy to resolve, but others are not so easy due to number of production and billing rows.

Invoice number
Billing item
Est. Quantity
Actual quantity
Billable Qty
Sales order
Position number
Sequence
Agreement
Billing source
Description
Total Billable Qty

## Index - Match Function To Output Data Based On User Input

Apr 30, 2009

I have a list of data that I'm using the index - match function to output data based on user input.

For example, I have:

1 10
2 15
3 20

So when '1' is selected another cell outputs '10'.

However what I want is for example if 1.25 is input, I want it to interpolate to spit out the correct number between 10 and 15.

## Match Up Data From Two Different Sets?

Nov 8, 2013

I'm attempting to create a mailing list for the company I work for, but the software that has the data record is very limiting. The two tables I received from the program are listed:

Customer
Number of Sales

name 1
#

name 2
#

name 3

I tried to illustrate that the address list has a different customer composition than the sales list; the address list has customers that the sales list doesn't have. This means I can't just sort alphabetically and drag the addresses over. My goal here is to create a datasheet that incorporates both the address and number of sales so that we can send the top 500 customers a mailing. How can I do this?

## Vlookup OR Index And Match.

Oct 22, 2009

I have a worksheet that has numerical data in A1:A22. In E1:E61 I have set values in numerical order and in F1:F61 I have a letter or letters that correspond to E1:61.

I am trying to write a formula in B1 that will look at the value in A1 and then match it up in E1:E61 and then return the corresponding letter in F1:F61.

e.g: in A1 i have an INDEX and MATCH formula

## Match/index/vlookup

Apr 3, 2008

I have two worksheets that I am hoping to use to generate one report in excel. Sheet1 contains the following information for my entire work center:

Sheet2 contains a list of Benefitors that are relevant to only me.

I want to pull the information from Sheet1 where the benefitors on Sheet1 match the benefitors listed on Sheet2 into Sheet3.

## Index Vlookup Match

Dec 4, 2008

I have a tab that has Employee Name in one column and the benefit they chose in another column. The employee name is repeated a number of times since they have chosen more than one benefit.

I am trying to create a new tab where the employee name in is the first column (only once) and each benefit is listed in separate columns along the top. I want to put an "x" in the column for the benefit the employee has chosen.

Is there a way to say "look for this employee, see if this benefit is what they chose, and if it is, put an "x", if not, leave blank"?

## Vlookup Or Index/match

Jun 5, 2009

I am trying to get the info shown on table 1 into table 2. I suspect index and match is the answer, but I am not sure.

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

May 1, 2014

If I have a column of data with a bunch of values (which can't be sorted & which is constantly changing so cant be broken into another column and then sorted) what formula do I need to output the second occurrence of a value in that column?

## Vlookup With Match / Index Option?

Mar 3, 2014

Attached example file has data with which I need to do the following;

On the tab "part list" I put in the part number in column F. Column C should then be populated automatically by looking up column F in the tab "Lookup" and showing the value found in column B of that tab.

The difficulty with this is, is that when the part number in column F starts with "DN", the lookup value should end with "FD/A" and when the part number in column F starts with "Z", the lookup value should end with "TY/A".

This last part I can't get it to work. I've tried vlookup with a index/match function inside, but it won't work somehow...

May 7, 2009

I want to create a formula that will use a database table as a lookup for index/match and vlookup type functions.

## HLOOKUP VLOOKUP INDEX & MATCH Etc

Feb 14, 2010

I don't want VB code but a worksheet formula.

I have a table full of names and cars sold. The table tracks the person's progress. It is like a diary. It's a simplied version of the DB I am currently working with.

Is it possible to do the following things? I have basically 2 types of questions.

1)When was the last red car sold?

2)When was a car sold irrespective of color?

The answer to each question will be put in separate columns.
I have only included January but I will do this for the entire year of 2010 and also I will do this for all of the names in my database. I think there are about 300.

When was the last time ANDY sold a RED car?
The answer will be put in ROW A COLUMN I

When was the last time ANDY sold a car irrespective of color?
The answer will be put in ROW A COLUMN J

When was the last time BILL sold a RED car?
The answer will be put in ROW B COLUMN I

When was the last time BILL sold a car irrespective of color
The answer will be put in ROW B COLUMN J

I have attached a thumbnail of a sample Database

## Index, VLOOKUP, MATCH Formula

Feb 28, 2010

I have the following arrangement
PVCu_Woodgrain_DoorF190210300#REF!

PVCu _woodgrain_Door is a drop down list that selects from a number of named ranges.

The Cell that shows (F1) and is called DOORSTYLE with 6 choices F1, F2 ... F6 (I cannot change these to numeric only values)

300 is the 2 previous cells added together. It is called DRSZ1 and will match a numeric value in the named array.

My formula cell with the issue has this formula;
=INDEX(INDIRECT(ARRAYDR1),MATCH(DOORSTYLE,INDEX(INDIRECT(ARRAYDR1),0,1)),MATCH(DRSZ1,INDEX(INDIRECT(ARRAYDR1),1,0)))

I know MATCH(DOORSTYLE,INDEX etc. should be a VLOOKUP to find F1 in the named array, but I just cannot get it right.

## Using Index Match Function?

Mar 24, 2013

I've been working on a payroll program for my small biz. I'm close to done BUT...When I use the Index Match function in a cell it works great. However I need to copy it down a column to work for pay periods going forward. When I copy it down of course it puts zeros or N/A.

Columns:

Gross Fed FICA Medicare State Net
F G H I J K

Gross is user input. FICA Medicare State and Net are simply calculated on the sheet. But to get Fed Income tax I use the Index Match function and it works perfectly. The rows increment properly with each new user input.

My question: Fed Income tax is dependent on what the Gross is in order to look up the tables with the Index Match function. How do I get the result of the function into column G? Can I increment up Column G and ignore the zeros that dragging the function down G creates?

## 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

## Combination Of AVERAGE With VLOOKUP And MATCH / INDEX?

Aug 14, 2014

What I want to do is the following, I have two sheets, one where the data needs to be filled and the second where the date needs to be looked up. In Sheet1 I need to find a date for each of the NR2 and NR1 combination. But in the second sheet there are multiple NR1 occurences and also single occurences. So if there is only one, I need that date, if there are several I need the average of all the occurences for NR1, not taking into account the N/A ones.

(some examples from the file)
NR2 NR DATE
100707987121951
100702347121960
100707750121960
100707721121960
100702422121960

[code]....

So for example, NR1 121965 has two dates, 03/09/2002 and 27/01/2004, so here it should calculate the average of these two and put that average in the first sheet.

I was thinking of something like IF(MATCH(?) gives one result,put that with vlookup, else AVERAGE of all MATCH that are not N/A)

## Vlookup, Index, Match, Offset, What Combination Should I Use?

Sep 22, 2009

I have attached an example s/sheet. Basically this is an excerpt of the data that sits in a pivot table. What I want to do is from another sheet query this data. I don't want to use another pivot table as they are quite hungry in terms of memory and the data source we have is quite large. In essence what I want to achieve is in cell G2 the user enters a code. A function (vlookup?) will then scan column A to find that code.

The function then needs to look across and sum the total of Requests and Responses for all the dates. Whilst the dates may change, the number of dates will remain the same. Once it has summed them it needs to return the totals to cells G4 and G5. Additionally it needs to fill in the relevant total (offset?) for the corresponding week as detailed in columns H-AH. It seems quite a simple lookup issue but I am not very versed in nested lookups. I have looked around and it seems INDEX woudl do the job but I am at a loss on how to construct this type of function.

## Returning Second / Third Etc Values Using VLOOKUP / INDEX / MATCH

Mar 1, 2014

making a forumla that will return the second, third ewtc values using VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH. Attached is a dummy file almost identical to the one I'm working in. In the first sheet there's a dependent drop-down list with the values Sub1, Sub2 and Sub3. This corresponds with data in sheet two listed next to these names. The problem is when I try to populate the table below using VLOOKUP etc it just repeats the first row over and over rather than defaulting to the second and third row results

## VLookup Or Index / Match Multiple Occurrences?

Jan 24, 2014

I have some data which I update every now and again. Then I extract and clean up and currently have it output to 4 columns.

The four columns currently looks like this:

A | B | C | D
1 name name2 stats stats2
2 ....
3 ....

Each column is then populated with a decent amount of names and stats, and the same name occurs multiple times. I'm looking up a specific name in the A column, and can extract the stats in C fine using INDEX/MATCH, but it only returns the data from the first instance the name occurs. I've googled it a bit and believe I could possibly wrap my head around returning multiple instances.

However, there are a couple of other criteria for my extraction of the stats which makes me believe I'm in way over my head. The data is in chronological order, with the newest on the bottom. I'm wanting to extract the stats in inversed order so starting from bottom going upwards, if that makes sense. Further, preferably I'd want to limit the amount of extraction to X amounts. And lastly to make it really complicated, for the newest entries stats are not yet available so only the names (column A and B) are populated, I need it to skip those entries, since, obviously, there are no stats there to extract, and I wouldnt want to end up with a lot of blank cells in my summary.
