VLOOKUP Returning Wrong Value
I have this formula that returns a grade mark for a specific score in a test:
using these values in the lookup table:
The problem comes where the Grade is A or A* as the Vlookup table can't differentiate the two. Anyone know how to modify the formula so that A and A* are seen as distinct values?

IRR Function Is Returning The Wrong Value
I'm trying to figure out an Internal Rate of Return for a spreadsheet. The answer is supposed to be: 29.42% however I'm getting 25.94%. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong in my IRR function on the Profitability worksheet? I'm currently using Excel 2007 by the way.
Match Formula Returning Wrong Row Number
I have a spreadsheet, with a Match Formula, that appears not to work. It looks at cell F1, and scans through cell C2:C14, and want it to return the relevant row in Column B (My work network will not allow me to upload the file). Cell F1 is the name of the sheets within the workbook (one for every month). However my data currently only has Apr - Jun, but when I choose month May, the formula feturns Month June.
VLOOKUP - Pulling Wrong Data
I have a VLOOKUP, which uses a named range called Department. The first column is sorted in asending order. The department numbers are 4 digits, formatted numeric. The department numbers are in order up to Department #19000, then they jump to 50000 series. Here's the problem, the 20000 department seris is in the master database, and the lookup is returning the data relating to Department #19000, instead of NA.
Vlookup: Pulls The Wrong Data Until A Correct One Occurs
I am having problems with the function vlookup. I attached an excel file of my problem. It seems to pull the correct lookup, then it pulls the wrong data until a correct one occurs. My excel attachment should make more since of my problem. It will also pull data that is invalid. For example, the name "S5" is not a in my original data so it should not be able to find that?? Sorry, this is hard to explain - let me know if the file is not clear enough.
Returning 0 Value With VLOOKUP
I'm hoping someone can help. I've written a =VLOOKUP formula that works fine. What I'd like to do is if the value can't be found within the lookup then the formula returns a 0 rather than the standard #N/A. Can these be joined up in 1 formula?
VLookup Returning #N/A
I have a VLOOKUP formula that is working just fine in Column O.. When I drag it over to Column P (changing nothing in the formula only changing the month) why would it now return #N/A. There is nothing wrong with the source that I can see..

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(B14,'Metal Worksheet'!$A$8:$L$157,11,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(B14,'Metal Worksheet'!$A$8:$L$157,10,FALSE))*D14
As long as the lookup value is true the formula works but if the lookup value is false then I get #value! when it tries to multiply by D14. How do i get the formula to return a blank cell or 0 value if the lookup value is false?

Vlookup Returning #N/A When It Shouldn't
i sell solar panel systems and i've broken it down to 18 different packs that i can sell, the reason for this is that i can very quickly have a tailored quote for a particular client. what i want to do is is literally from a pull down menu have the 18 packs, pick one and for all elements of that quote to come up. i have used a data validation list for the pull down menu which works fine. for the 18 packs, each one has an array of info of between 15 - 18 rows and 4 columns wide (containg info like part description in first column, then cost in second column, quantity in third column and total cost in fourth. how i set it up was, i have all the seperate packs going for left to right on a spread sheet with the title name on top. i have created a quote area so when i use the pul down menu to get title all that pack info should come up. i have done this by using the hlookup command to return the first column on the left - description on parts and this works fine - then to return the cost in the second column, i am using a vlookup command by looking for the description on the left to return the cost. this works for 90% of the info and for the other 10% i get an #N/A when i know it shouldn't. all cells have the same format so i know this isn't the problem. i would really appreciate any help on this from anyone who has had this problem before.
VLookup, Returning A Value On A Vector
I want to use the V lookup function to return a value, but rather than returning the value in the same row as the match in the specified column, I want to return the value in the cell below.

... but rather than returning the value in column 7 on the row that matched with B397, I want the field below.
Vlookup Returning The Closest Match Down
I'm using vlookup to get a price for a unit of measure and it passes the value of the lesser not the greater. Is there anyway to get vlookup to pick the closest match as the greater value not the lesser one?
1000 units costs $8,000
4000 units cost $23,000
12000 units cost $68,000
If someone wants to buy 2500 units, I'd like the vlookup to pass the price based on 4000 units, but it passes 8,000 the value on 1000 units.
Can I use vlookup to give me the result of the greater unit not the lesser?
Vlookup: Returning Multiple Matches
I am trying to connect a special date and a price to a special name (please see the attached file).
In sheet 1 I have the following:
- In column A I have a set of different names.
- In column B I have a set of different dates.
- In column C I have a set of different prices on bonds that off course refers to the different names at their respective dates.
In rest of the sheets I want an overview of the different bonds, and what their prices are at the exact date. The problem is that if I use the vlookup it is only the first value that will be extracted. How can I get all of the prices corresponding to the different dates to the correct bond. I also want the possibility to update this every day.

The five-digit numbers on the second worksheet are located in the third column and the text I want returned from the second column.

Vlookup Preventing From Returning Smaller/other Values
I have a table of data, one column is for the names of all these branches of our offices, that consist of 2 alpha numeric digits. For instance one branch is 6G, then another is 6F, 8G, etc. The other column has a raw number in it. So I'm doing a vlookup for the first column to return the value in the second column. But, vlookup automatically returns a value thats the next one over if it can't find the vlookup value. For instance, if it can't find 6G it'll just give me the number it finds for 6F. But I don't need that! I just want it to return either a zero or n/a if it can't find 6G.
VBA - What Is Wrong With My For Each Next

Mod Function Works Wrong
I was trying to explain modulus to someone and they wanted to know why you can "flip" symbols mod(-6,7) = 1 in Excel. So I got to explaining that -6 Mod 7 is the same as -6-(|-6/7|)*7 which is how you get 1.
And that's when I realized... |-6/7| = 0 not -1. Then I looked in VBA and sure enough -6 mod 7 = -6. Apparently the problem boils down to the Integer conversion. Excel is performing the integer coversion by rounding down (INT) wheras VBA appears to be using CINT.
So here is how it work out in excel:
But in VBA you get
References Goes Wrong After Sorting
I have a problem with my references when sorting in excel. I have been searching for the problem, but did not found a useful solution.
I'm using excel 2003.
Let me try to explain my problem with a simple exampel.
I have a column with numbers and one with formulas pointing at these.
Now I want to sort column A, and the column B should keep pointing at the original number. So I want this:
But I get this:
This output is what I would expect if I used absolut reference($).
Using offset(B1;0;-1) will work, but I cannot use this, since I will add/delete rows and the reference is not neccessarily next to it. Plus it can be a rather large sheet.
I cannot use dynamically name definition either, because it is intended for other users, and this will be too much work for them. What I basically need is a simple formula they can enter.
My sorting is done via a VBA macro, so if there is anything I can do through macro/VBA that will be okay as well, since I can do this without the user seeing it.

Pivot Table Subtotals Are Wrong!

Filtering, Wrong Rows Removed
I have a module that imports data from a text file (120000 rows), filters and removes some unneeded (85000)rows and then puts the data in a designated workbook.
Problem: when filtering by some criteria it for some reason removes a row off the final file for each criteria. I have a total of 23 filtering criteria. I have attached a file for exemplification. You can run the module and import the file, it will be without first 23 rows, even if non of the deleted rows contained the filter criteria.
Error If I Enter Wrong Criteria

Result In The Formula Editor Box Is Wrong
I can't seem to tell if my formula isn't correct in concept, or if this is a known problem with Excel 2000?
I have written a short formula that is pretty straightforward, but is giving a different result in Excel's "Formula Editor" box (when you hit the = button) than is showing in the cell itself. The Formula Editor's result is showing as "TRUE" which is what I believe is the correct value, but the cell itself is showing the "FALSE" result of a different incorrect value.
Formula Evaluate To The Wrong Conclusion
In cell A1 is 13.00, the result of a formula.
In cell A2 is the formula =IF(A1>14.00,True,False)
The result of this formula is TRUE
In cell A3 is the formula =15-A1
The result of this formula is 2
why the formula in cell A2 would evaluate to the wrong conclusion? All cells are formated as numbers.
Pivot Table Subtotals Are Wrong Instead Of Zero
I've just started using Pivot Tables and have a problem right away. Couldn't find anything with the search function, but am not really sure, what to search for, either
Part of my data looks like this
NameLot #BinAmountABC123CB18C174.025 ABC123CB18C-24.975 ABC123CB18C-24.975 ABC123CB18C12.616 ABC123CB18C-12.616 ABC123CB18C-24.975 ABC123CB18C-24.100 ABC123CB18C-25.000 ABC123CB18C-25.000 ABC123CB18C-25.000
Now this is a material that is stored on a pallet with the code CB18C. The total sum of material that is added to/taken from this pallet adds up to Zero. My Pivot Table, however, believes the total is something like 2.84217E-14.
Sum of Amount NameLot #BinTotalABC123CB18C2.84217E-14 123 Total2.84217E-14ABC Total 2.84217E-14Grand Total 2.84217E-14
This problem occurs several times, the raw data adds up to Zero, but the Pivot Table calculates these tiny, tiny totals. Is this a known bug or can Pivots not handle 3 decimal data?
