# VLOOKUP Returning Wrong Value

Dec 14, 2006
I have this formula that returns a grade mark for a specific score in a test:

=VLOOKUP(D4,'Grade scale'!$A$34:$B$42,2)

using these values in the lookup table:

Low scoreGrade

0.0% U

25.0% G

35.0% F

45.3% E

55.3% D

65.5% C

72.0% B

78.0% A

85.0% A*

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?

I am trying to use the Vlookup function to return State name based on the corresponding state code.

I have the list of State along with the Codes in adjacent sheet, arranged in ascending order. I am using the Vlookup function to list the State name based on the State code.

Vlookup function: Vlookup(A4,Sheet2.A2:B51,1)

This function returns me a wrong value. It gives "Arkansas" for the state code "AZ", when it should be Arkansas.

Also, if I add "FALSE" as a 4th argument, it returns "#N/A".

I am working on a form to pull employee identifiers such as employee ID, store number as well as sales performance. I am using the below formula but the data that is being returned is not the correct data for the specific employee. C5 is the employee name (last name, first name) in a single cell. A sample of the spreadsheet I am trying to pull data from is attached. Some employees the formula pulls the right data and some it does not...

=IF(C5="","",VLOOKUP(C5,'Raw Data'!A3:N15,2))

If the item in the vlookup table Array does not exist, the vlookup returns the result of an unrelated item. Is their another formula I can use?

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.

I am trying to determine if I can write a formula that will read text in one cell, such as insurance and if true enter the amount from another cell and if false then 0. I have tried a IF statement by add the text to name manager. However, the answer is 0 rather than the amount in the selected cell. I might need to use a different formula or function.

I have a table, let's call it Table1. Each column has the ability to filter but no filters are applied at the outset of this issue. I want to average a column labeled Column13. I also want to apply a filter to Column13 that states only show values over 50%. I apply the filter and in the cell I want the average calculated in I type the formula:

"=AVERAGE(101,Table1[Column13])"

The 101 (as far as I'm lead to believe) only applies the average to the rows *SHOWN*. However, the average I get back is 45.67%. This is obviously wrong as the filter states only show rows where the column is greater than 50%.

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.

I am using the formula: LOOKUP(A1,{"S","M","L","XL"},{"S","M","L","XL"}) on a cell containing: EF-2147.(S) so that it will return a S [or M, L etc. if it were .(M),.(L)] but it just keeps returning #N/A. I tried putting in "(S)" etc. in the lookup formula but it then started returning the wrong letters.

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.

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.

=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?

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?

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..

the following vlookup is not returning a value in the specified cell (C39). From the threads I have searched through it looks OK but not working

Sheets("Day 1").Range("C39") = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(Sheets("Day 1").Range("M2"), Sheets("PCO").Range("B1:C12"), 2, False)

Im sure from past experience I have missed a comma or something but buggered if I can find it!

I've created a spreadsheet to 'translate' number/letter combinations (sub-levels in the UK education system) into a numerical value. I looked up how to do this on google and, through a bit of trial and error, worked out that the lookuptable has to be in alphabetical order, etc.

My problem is when I enter in any of the 'P' values (see attached), it returns 0.5.

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.

Eg.

=VLOOKUP(B397, A$267:H$351, 7, FALSE)

... but rather than returning the value in column 7 on the row that matched with B397, I want the field below.

view the graph below:

A

B

1

EXTENSION 101

2

INBOUND TALK TIME

55M19S

3

OUTBOUND TALK TIME

1H22M13S

[code].....

I am trying to create a formula that will act like a vlookup but will return a different row. In other words, On page two I need to write a formula that says: In column 1 if you see "Extension 101" return column 2 of the row right beneath it, so on and so forth. So page two should return a mirror of what page one says, the difference is I would like people to type in "Extension 101" in a cell and it would return all the date.

A

B

1

EXTENSION 101

2

INBOUND TALK TIME

55M19S

[code].....

Cell A1 would be typed in//Cell A2-A4 would be static//Cell B2-B4 would return these numbers based on info from A1.

Cell A1 would always be unique in column A (on both pages).

I have the following Vlookup formula:

=VLOOKUP(G3,'Calculation for September 07'!C7:E1975,2,FALSE)

The formula is returning #N/A, but I see the lookup value in the table array.

What do I need to add to the formula to have the lookup value recognized?

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.

Not sure where to start with this one, an IF statement or vlookup? Basically I have 3 columns A, B, C (original sheet) and A, B, C in my working sheet. A contains car registrations, B contains a date and C contains a weight. I need to return C from my original sheet into my working sheet only when A and B BOTH match from my working sheet (there are scenarios where the same car registration has a different date next to it). So I want to return the weight only when the car registration and the date match in a specific instance from my working sheet.

Trying to pull data from one workbook to another using Vlookup.

The worksheet has 7 columns (date, day of week, time or arrival, package, departure time, patron count and group name) I would like to pull all the data for a specific date in a seperate workbook.

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.

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?

For example:

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?
