# VLOOKUP Multiple Results In A Drop Down List

Feb 12, 2009

I am using the VLOOKUP function to pull multiple columns of information from another sheet in the same workbook based on a name. The sheet it is pulling from is a query. I am looking up product names, and in the query there may be multiple results that the function can find.

VLOOKUP only returns the first result that is found. What I am trying to do is get it to dump all the results into a drop down list in one cell. If I attach a drop down to one of the columns of information I am retrieving, then I can select which of the entrys to display, right? I think this should work I just don't know how to go about setting it up to do it.

How would I set up a VLOOKUP formula that attaches a drop down list containing all the results that the function finds?

## Vlookup With Multiple Criteria: Creating A Drop Down List Showing Alternative Choices With Sex

Aug 22, 2007

I am trying to create a simple user interface type thing so that someone is able to select from drop down lists someones information, such as whether they are male or female, aged between 19-35 or 35-67, whether they are studying in a business area, legal or construction etc (there are 6 variables in total), This will then give the probability of success of the person passing this course based on probabilities which I have already worked out. I have worked out how to do the first stage of creating a drop down list showing alternative choices with Sex, Age etc in the data validation options, however:

There are 517 possible combinations, as in Male aged 19 to 35 studying Business (with other variables) or Male aged 19 to 35 studying Law (+ other variables) etc etc etc each with their own probability of success. Due to the long nature of writing out Male1935BusinessNorthWestWhiteBritishCollegeBrown I have rewritten it so it appears in the excel file as M1935BNWWBCB, which obviously wouldn't make any sense to someone if they had to select M 1935 B NW WB CB from drop down lists.

Along side the M1935BNWWBCB there is the probability of success specific to that type of person. So for example I could would have:
M 60%
M1935 64%
M1935B 35%....

## Drop Down Box / VLookup Not Giving Results

Jan 8, 2009

I am making a company wide estimate sheet and having trouble with the drop down box. I have a drop down to pick the branch, but when I name the source it only says branch, even though I named the data on the branch sheet. I would like to be able to pick the branch initials and have it populate the phone and fax number under the main heading but am getting a error there.

Also for the labor is it possible to have it insert the correct labor into the formulas at the labor lines according to which branch is picked from the drop down.

## Drop Down Menu Based On Vlookup Results?

Feb 2, 2013

im trying to create a drop down menu that changes depending on the results of a vlookup. example: I have a vlookup function that populates a field with a product name based on the part number, however in some cases there are multiple products with the same part number. is there a way to create a drop down menu that contains all the product names shared by the same part number based on the part number that was entered?

## Vlookup To Access Data Based On A Drop-down List...

Nov 14, 2008

i have been looking around here and it seems like my problem is similar to many's regarding the vlookup function. to me, what i'm trying to do sounds simple enough, but it can't get it to work. i have a table that has three columns, Item Number, Item Description, and Amount.

Each item has it's own number, a corresponding item description, and ammount (obviously), but there are some repeats. What I want to do it input the Item Description, and have one field automatically pull up the Item number, and the next field, pull up the price. I am using a drop-down list for the Item Descriptions utilizing data validation. here is formula that i have been trying to use that is not working: =VLOOKUP(B2,Sheet1!\$A\$2:\$C\$18,1,FALSE). i have attached a trial worksheet that i am using to work things out on.

## VLookup With Multiple Results

May 8, 2012

I have a large spreadsheet of data, with lab results by date. Sometimes, there are multiple data points for a single date.

I need to produce monthly reports that list all the results for specific tests in a given month.

So, for example:

Date SG Property Tank
1/5/12 1.015 567324 2044
3/15/12 1.002 568210 2103
3/18/12 1.025 568056 2044
3/18/12 1.036 565200 2102
4/1/12 1.019 566713 2103

I would like to make a report for March that looks like this:
Date SG Tank
3/15/12 1.002 2103
3/18/12 1.025 2044
3/18/12 1.036 2102

And the next month, make a report for April, then May... etc.

I tried to think of a way to do this using vlookup or index/match, but couldn't figure it out.I also tried using filters and then automating some kind of copy/paste, but there is an extra line between the heading and the data, so that the date column is filtered as text instead of date. The source data is not my spreadsheet, so that would be difficult to change.

## VLookup With Multiple Results?

Dec 17, 2012

I would like to do a lookup function, in which multiple results are returned.

i.e.

VLookup Result 1
Result 2

## Displaying Multiple Results With VLOOKUP

Dec 8, 2009

Hi, I'm sure this will be an easy one for most of you. I need to extract data from an array for each time I have recorded a specific vehicle registration. I have used VLOOKUP but this only gives me one result. I need excel to display every enrty for the registration I am looking for. I have attached a sample file which should make more sence.

## Multiple Vlookup Results As A Text String

Apr 24, 2009

I have searched other postings but can’t seem to find the answer.

I was wondering if anyone had a solution on how to string multiple Vlookup results as a text string so that if I Vlookup “Pear” it will return “Red, Blue, Green” in adjacent cell
i.e

A B
1 Fruit Colour
2 Pear Red
3 Orange Purple
4 Apple Green
5 Banana Yellow
6 Pear Blue
7 Pear Green
8 Banana Black
9 Orange Green
10 Apple Black

Is Vlookup the right function to go with here?

## Drop Down List Which Returns Values Based On What Has Been Selected In The Previous Drop Down List In The Adjacent Cell

Mar 19, 2009

I'm trying to create a drop down list which returns values based on what has been selected in the previous drop down list in the adjacent cell, e.g. if 'Apples' is selected in the previous cell then you should only be able to select from 'Gala, Granny Smith', or if 'Oranges' is selected you should only be able to select 'Seville, Blood Orange'. Is there a formula which would do this, or can I use a pivot table somehow? I'm totally stumped.

## VBA Array VLookup And Multiple Results Output In One Cell

Oct 21, 2012

What I need is a script or formula with returns multiple results and puts them into one cell.

The Excel is used as a Project Managment Work Sheet for Resources, working on different Projects and their dedicated hours

The raw data table looks like this:
Column A: Project Name (=AllProjectsLists)
Column E: Resource Name (=MasterDataResources)
Column P: values from 0 to 8 (hours)

First I need to check per row the Resource Name. If the Resource Name is a match, than I need to check if in column P the value is bigger than 0. The result goes into a different sheet per row, one result per Resource, but the multiple results should be shown in one cell.

So the result should be something like:

Resource name "Thomas" .... Projects working on: "Project 1, Project 5, Project 13, ..." (in one cell)
Resource name "Mary" .... Projects working on: "Project 3, Project 9, Project 13, ..." (in one cell)

I tried with this one, but it only returns one vale per cell:

=SMALL(IF(E\$9=MasterDataResources; ROW(MasterDataResources)-ROW(\$A\$2)+1), ROW(1:1))
=INDEX(AllProjectsLists; SMALL(IF(E\$9=MasterDataResources; ROW(MasterDataResources)-ROW(\$A\$2)+1); ROW(1:1)))

## Vlookup Data And Return Results On Multiple Entries

Feb 16, 2009

So i have a spreadsheet that has a list of members and how many events they have attended. That is fine because i achieved this by doing a countif function on their account number. The spreadsheet has to sheets Events Attended TOTAl and List. In the list it has their name account number and what event they attended and what date. What i need is to have a function that will lookup their account number and return what event they attended but they might have been to 4 different events.

I have a total of 5 columns dedicated to Event attended so we can tell it to lookup first event and return result then have an if function in the next column to lookup event and if its returned in previous column move onto the next event attended.

## Dropdown VLookup Menu Returns Multiple Results?

Oct 11, 2011

I'm attempting something new, a dropdown menu using vlookup to find data . If i use the simple example below, using data from B-D on 1 worksheet, where i want to find people by county:

A B C D
Search by County Name County Town
John Sussex Brighton
Eric Yorkshire York
Jim Cheshire Manchester
Liz Sussex Hove
Sarah Avon Bristol

I've created a dropdown menu on a second worksheet,A2, by county search, to return a persons name,county and town. The problem is if i select Sussex i will get 2 names who live in different towns within Sussex. I've created a simple vlookup which works fine, but because of Sussex having 2 results, i created a second vlookup for the second result to appear in the cell underneath.

The problem is that for the results that only have 1 result, the second vlookup returns a the same result as the first result, which i dont want.

Is there a way where multiple results will be shown if they exist, but for one result to appear if only one result exists?

## Drop Down List Which Displays A Different Set Of Values Depending Upon The Value Selected By A Previous Drop Down List

Oct 26, 2009

I need to have a drop down list which displays a different set of values depending upon the value selected by a previous drop down list. ie. (drop down box 1)= x, y, z. (drop down box 2)= either x1, x2, x3, or y1, y2, y3, or z1, z2, z3. I can produce a single drop down box thats not a problem but linking several drop down boxes is beyond me .

## Drop Down List And Multiple Information

Aug 5, 2008

I created a drop down list of contacts for specific accounts:

Primary
Second
Third
Fourth

When I click on each one, I want in adjacent individual cells their name, address, phone, and email. The results should only show up in the same row as per list choice.

This drop down list applies to 20+ accounts so each contact info corresponds to the accounts.
A E F G H I
So: Account... Contact Name Address Phone Email
(DropList)
And do that for all the accounts.

## Concatenate Multiple Vlookup Results With Dash Exclude Null Values Or 0 Return?

Jun 10, 2014

The 3 vlookup will be in a single cell for concatenation like :

=vlookup1&"-"&vlookup2&"-"&vlookup3

Problem the are 3 vlookups where it will return names (with format -> Fname, Given Name Middle) and probably blank returns.

I have problem with the replace since there are also spaces between the Fname,Gname and Mname sample name with spaces.

## How To Get Drop Down List Value To Affect Multiple Cells

Sep 7, 2009

I have a rather simple problem (tough for me!). I am setting up a food log. I would like to have one column with common food items that I have in a drop down list. The list would be about 20+ things. The other columns would have relevant nutritional info such as calories, fat, carbs, etc.

The problem is how do I make the values in the other columns change depending on which food item I pick from the drop down list?

For example, if I choose bread from the list, how would I get the columns for carbs and calories to change accordingly.

The IF function would be too hard because I couldn't nest 20+ IF functions in the formula for each cell. Also, the drop down list would change as my diet changes, possibly reaching 50+ things.

Also, I would like to manually enter a serving size that would alter the nutritional values in each column (for example 0.5*Calories or Carbs).

It seems so simple in my head, but I can't figure out how to get it to work.

## List Multiple Results From Lookup On A Different Sheet?

Aug 28, 2013

I need to start a list in cell a8 on sheet1. I need it to find and list multiple results vertically. It will lookup what is in cell a1 on sheet1. The table of info is on sheet2 from a1 to b44. Column a on sheet2 has the values of what is in column a on sheet1 and column b is what I need returned to the cell with the formula.

## Populate Multiple Text Cells Using Corresponding Drop Down List?

Jul 5, 2014

The list is a crew list and I'd like to be able to select the foreman, but I'd like the crew cells to be populated with the information corresponding to that specific foreman. I've named the data range and created the drop down list but i cant figure out why the crew column wont populate with the crew. I am using a different sheet for my data.

I tried VBA but I am hoping I can use Index and Match.

=INDEX(crew, MATCH(C10, Personel!D2:F4, 0), COLUMN())

## Filling In Multiple Cells After A Choice From A Drop Down List

Feb 17, 2009

If I choose 1 thing from a list I want it to then fill in many cells with info.

For example: I have a color list to choose from, once I make my choice cells near it fill in with 1.5lbs yellow, 2lbs blue, 4lbs red,.....or what ever I have established as the "recipe" for my color choice. When I choose a different color from my list these cells each fill in with different values.

## Multiple Matches In Array (one Or Two Criteria) And List Results

Sep 15, 2014

I have used INDEX/MATCH/ROW/SEARCH functions, in different permutations, but I am unable to get the result. The data set is something similar to the below:

Car
Region
Own
Use
Color

Honda
North
Yes
I use it to go for work
Green

[Code] .....

I want to be able to do following (2 separate tasks):

Task 1 (if in A1 on a new sheet, I had Use, i want to list all the items in an adjacent column, skipping the blank rows)):

Use

I use it to go for work

Family trips
Weekend fun
2nd car
Work

Task 2 (if i had Honda (A2) and North (B2), I want to have the colors listed in Column 3):

Car
Region
Color

Honda
North
Green

White

I know this can be done by an auto-filtering or manual sort, but I have work with thousands of similar data on a regular basis, and i want to find a formula that will allow me to list the items based on different criterion.

## Dropdown List Displaying Multiple Results - No Functionality If Worksheet Is Protected

Nov 28, 2013

I wanted to create a multiple drop down lists (using data validation) in column B (50 in all, every 3rd line) whereby, multiple, comma deliminated, results would display in each of the cells - for use elsewhere in the spreadsheet.

I found some code (as follows) which worked perfectly for me

VB:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngDV As Range
Dim oldVal As String

[Code].....

As I mentioned above, I don't really understand the code and all I know is that the line about halfway down "If Target.Column = 2 Then" is defining which column (B) this will work in.

The problem I am having is that I need to protect the worksheet and the moment I "protect" the worksheet, the functionality of displaying multiple values goes away and the drop-down list reverts to only displaying one of the available values.

## VLookup With Multiple Items In List

Apr 2, 2013

In column A i have list with the names like this.

ROSEHILL 1
ROSEHILL 1
ROSEHILL 2
ROSEHILL 2
ROSEHILL 2
ROSEHILL 2
ROSEHILL 3
ROSEHILL 3
ROSEHILL 3

When i use the Vlookup to return the value in column M it does not work as you would expect, i have done some searches and found a few different formulas but can't get any to work, the data i am searching is listed on one sheet and the criteria and the formula is on another.

I tried this formula as an array but no joy.

=IFERROR(INDEX(Data!\$A\$2:\$M\$900, SMALL(IF(\$GO\$4=Data!\$A\$2:\$A\$900,
ROW(Data!\$A\$2:\$A\$900)-ROW(Data!\$A\$2)+1), ROW(1:1))),"" )

## Showing Different Results Dependant On Drop Down Box

Sep 19, 2007

I'm creating a spreadsheet to track orders as part of a project, the spreadsheet currently lists all the different options that can be ordered, it then lists all parts of the order, installation & setup etc.

However it is likely that not all of the options will be used.

What I would like to do is create a few drop down boxes for each option, if 'yes' is selected then the order tracking for that option shows below.

Example, the wants 'internet' so 'yes' is selected for internet using the drop down at the top of the page. Further down the page all the order tracking info is shown for internet. If 'no' is selected nothing is shown for interent.
