# VLOOKUP Formula Dragdown Copies Previous Cell Result Instead Of Unique Result

Jun 10, 2014
When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

what I would like to do is view a cell result in my userform with out deleting my formula

It works perfect from the excel side but I just cant get it right from the user form side

Ok so cell D6 contains a vlookup formula. I want the vlookup result to appear in my userform. I can get this to work but it overrides the vlookup formula with the result. This means that when I go to use it again it just shows the same result.This is what I have:

Cell D8 has a Combobox with a list of names to select from

this is the formula in cell D6 =VLOOKUP(D8,B107:I754,2,FALSE) This retrieves the selected customers account number from the combobox. I need my userform to display the account number with out erasing the formulas because I will need to search for more account numbers after.

I have named the textbox in my userform Customeraccountb

I created a simple auto numbering function whereby Cell A7 contained =Row()-6, and Cell A8 contained =(A7+1). I then shift, and pasted the contents of cell A8 until cell A600. My aim is to simply copy the increments of 1 - 600 into another column. However when i copy and paste i'm also copying the initial underlying formula ie: =( A?+1), Is there a way to copy the results, not the formula?

Hopefully you will be able to help again. Is it possible to do a vlookup that references data on other tabs within the worksheet so that the result of the formula is in the cell not the formula.

So if my vlookup was =vlookup(a2,$a$1:$b$12,3,0) and the result was john smith i want just john smith in the cell. I know about copy and paste values but i was looking for a more automatic way. One that doesn't need intervention.

how to return a blank or null value when the vlookup formula would normally return a #N/A? I am using the False range_lookup argument to get an exact match.

My VLOOKUP formula is displaying in the cell instead of the result. The formula is VLOOKUP(A1, income_codes, 2, FALSE) and in the formula editor the result (00017) is calculated correctly.

However the cell displays =VLOOKUP(A1, income_codes, 2, FALSE) instead of the answer 00017.

My view options are not set to display formulas. The codes are formatted as text in the range income_codes as they start with zeros.

I have a sheet that a VLOOKUP is looking at, and what I need is, if that VLOOKUP finds what it is looking for I need it to look at the cell 2 cells to the left, how is that done?

I am thinking something like:

Formula:

[Code] ......

I just don't know the offset part.

In workbook 1, I have summary sheet with columns

A -> SNO

B -> Customer Name

C -> Product Name

D -> MODEL

E -> Quotation Rate

I have to retrieve MODEL & Quotation Rate .

and also having seperate sheet for each customers say X1 , Y1 , Z1 ( so other sheet names as X1, Y1 & Z1)

In X1 sheet , I do have following columns

A-> Product Name ,

b-> Model (as of now limited to 1 per product name)

c -> Rate

Now my request is as follows Based on the Column b value in Summary sheet - i have to goto respective sheet and do vlookup for the respective product name and retrieve model and fill it in Column D. I heard i can use INDIRECT function and Vlookup in this junction .

I am trying to use a VLOOKUP on a table of manufacturing die cuts of certain sizes.

A formula tells me a number close to the die that is available. The rule is to use the next larger size die cut for the job.

An example of die sizes are:

Die Sizes

108.0

112.7

114.3

117.5

My formula gives me 114.22, therefore, I should use the 114.3 die.

However, the VLOOKUP says 112.7, not the answer I want.

How can I adjust this VLOOKUP to give me the next size down? I am guessing a IF, but I am not the best at writing IF statements.

I am using VLOOKUP to find the size of a cam to be installed in a tablet press, based on the product code it will be running.

The array has two columns: (W) Product Code, (X) Cam Size.

Array: W4:X437

The user selects the Product Code from a drop-down list in cell E5.

The resulting Cam Size is displayed in cell E7. The VLOOKUP works fine.

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(E5,W4:X437,2,FALSE),"")

Occasionally, the cam size has to be updated. The user would then select a new cam size from a drop-down list in cell E9.

I have a "Update Cam Size" command button.

What I need to happen is for the value in E9 to replace the value in the array that is displayed in E7. Obviously, I have to know the location of the cell in the array, but I can't figure that part out. I've tried ADDRESS and MATCH functions, but it comes back with "#N/A" Value not available error.

=ADDRESS(MATCH(E7,W4:X437,0),2)

I am currently using this Formula to Search a table on sheet 2 (Tabelle2) and copy the date in the relevent cell (Cells) into the correct cell on Sheet 1 (Master Sheet).

[Code] ..........

Used in cells E10:AZ30 and E33:AZ46

This works perfectly and is the formula behind all relevent cells in Sheet 1.

I would like to keep this but to add that it also copies the background color of the cell in Sheet 2 to the cell in sheet 1.

If i can Bring this Formula into VBA and add the color changing part, It must only work on the cells listed above..

I have a value in Cell A1. Now, I need to be able to enter a number into Cell A3 and upon hitting Enter (or clicking elsewhere), the number I just entered into Cell A3 needs to be replaced with the number I just entered multiplied by the number in Cell A1. For Example: Cell A1 contains the number 1.05. I type 2.50 into Cell A3 and upon hitting Enter Cell A3 reads 2.625.

I have a formula in a cell and when I use the formula bar it shows me the correct answer but it doesn't show me it in the worksheet. Only the formula shows up.

The same formula could be another place in my worksheet and work fine.

I have tried changing format. Copying formula from another location and changing the information to fit my needs it won't show me the result.

=K18+Sheet117!K18

K18 contains the number 54.00, and on Sheet117 cell K18 contains the number 404.00.

Cell A1 displays the formula rather than the result, which should be 458.00.

Other similar formulas I have in this workbook return a result of 0 when I know there should be a significantly higher number. Then, the same formula used to refer to different cells will return what appears to be a proper result.

I have created a visual schedule for my team using Excel (2003, SP3 if that matters). Essentially, the user puts in pre determined 1-3 character codes in individual cells, and the macros I have act like a complex Conditional Formatting to keep the formatting neat and consistent throughout the sheet. The actual values are inputted directly into the cells though (this is pertinent to my question), and are things like "A" "M" "$" and "TR"

I have a sheet for every day in a week. Since there are multiple team members on any given day, I have recently made another sheet which pulls a single Team Member's schedule Sunday through Saturday and displays their schedule for the entire week. I have used formulas (specifically VLOOKUP) to do this.

The problem that I am having though, is that the macros that I made to format the days of the week sheets, do not seem to recognize the result of the formulas in the individual Team Member's sheet, and thus do not format them as desired.

My macros are written to evaluate a cell's value via [ Range("example").value ] and will act upon it accordingly with more code. I am assuming that a [ Range("example").value ] would see a cells value as the text of the inputted formula, and not the result of that formula. Is there any way around this? or do I need to avoid the formulas all together and write in code to just copy over what I need?

(I hope this makes sense)

Sub startup

Dim numwords As Integer

numwords = WorksheetFunction. CountA("H5:H64")

Range("H1").Select

Selection.FormulaR1C1 = numwords

I have a quick question regarding this simple code thats been drviing me nuts. There x distinct pieces of Data in the range speciifed, but when i run this code, the reply posted in cell H1 is 1, instead of x.

Eventually the code will be built to check if the result is odd or even and then add an entry into the first blank cell if the result is odd.

Why is it that when I edit some cell's formulas and press enter the result is not the changed formula but the formula itself complete with the '=' sign infront of the fuormula. The work around for me is to cut the formula and paste it into a new cell then drag the old cell over the previous one I tried to edit.

I have 4 categories A, B, C & D. These are in desending importance, means A is most important and D is least important. Now there could be many A, B, C & Ds listed in a column. The challange is if coulmn contains A anywhere then the result should be A. If A is absent, then search for B, if present anywhere then display the result as B. It doesn't matter how many times A or any character is listed in column. I am attaching a sheet for better explanation.

I'm trying to use Advanced Filter to generate all the unique values within a list, only at times I want to Autofilter the data, then use the advanced filter to determine all the values of the slimmed list. For some reason, this works fine on column A, only returning the values that begin with a 1 when the column is filtered for all values beginning with 1. However, when I run the advanced filter on column 2 with column 1 filtered to all beginning with 1, all values all returned regardless of whether column 1 criteria is met. Either way, after the advanced filter, the autofilter has been removed.

I have a simple formula subtracting one cell from another using =SUM(XX,-XX). When I click on fx and bring up the function arguments box, the formula result is displayed correctly in that box. However, the cell containing the formula will only display a zero. I have tried reformatting the cells to no avail. I have also tried getting a result using =XX-XX and that does not work either.

Often I write the formula in the cell of an excel spreadsheet in vain, it does not work.

Excel only displays the formula in the cell such like = if(B2>2;2;0), and not the result.

Formula is correct, so I don't know why it happens. Most often this occurs when the formula is between worksheets or different excel files on the corporate server.

I am trying to find a way to display text that is the product of a concatenate function in a defined cell, but not to have the function itself in that cell. Basically, I want to have the below function in cell A1. I want to add a command to it to take the result and display it in cell A2.

=CONCATENATE(C5,"_",'Attachment 3-A'!C9:E9,"_",IF(C5="","",IF(C6="MPL",IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Lease","Lease_Contributable",

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Pre-Lease","Managed_Pre-Lease",

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,MPL!B:F,5,FALSE)="Non-Contributable","Managed_Non-Contributable","Error"))),

IF(VLOOKUP(C5,Sale!B:F,5,FALSE)="Assignable","Lease_Assignable","Managed_Non-Assignable"))))

The reason for this is that I need the cell to be selectable (it is generating a file name that needs to be selected and copied), but I don't want the code behind it to be seen. I can't find a way to make the cell selectable AND hide the formula from being seen when the cell is selected. This is because our people keep copying the formula rather than the resulting text.

I was hoping for something like a DISPLAYIN(target) function, but it doesn't seem to exist.
