I tried with the VLookup, and HLookup and neither one worked for me. I have a reference table with all the data, and then input sheet where I want to bring this data by using one of the excel function. ie. When I enter office name on the top of the input page, I would like the Tax ID # in cell C3 to fill in using the excel function from the data on the reference tab. Same with cell C14 & C15. see attached for an example.

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.

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)

I have tried the Vlookup formula, and also the index/match formules but I can't get my desired outcome. As you can see the setup is fairly simple. For turnover I want to lookup the values based on Period AND profit center This last bit is my problem, how to define a double criterium.

The idea is to choose the wanted latest estimate (cell B1) and that for turnover, discount etc the values are based on 2 criteria (periode and profit center) I have also added the desired outcome to clarify my question.

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.

I think I need to combine functions to allow me to automate data entry from a table from another worksheet. If the Name entered in column A on Exp Breakdown matches a name in column A of Salary Breakdown I cannot seem to write a function to scan the table in Salary breakdown and lookup the percentage that person is paid from a specific program number. I have attached a sample worksheet to hopefully make it easier to understand.

I have data on two separate tabs. Data in columns A of both tabs potentially match. I am trying to identify and pull the value in column C of the second tab where the values in columns A match and the first instance where the value in column B on the second tab is less than the value in column B of the first tab. The values in both columns B are dates.

column A first tab = column A second tab column B first tab < column B second tab (first instance of less than) pull value from column C on second tab to appropriate row of column C on first tab.

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"?

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?

I would like to create a spreadsheet with 3 columns: employee ID, last name, first name. Then on the 4th column I would like to enter the employee ID and have the last name and first name auto populate into the 5th and 6th columns. How do I do this?

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...

I have used a lookup table to calculate the value in column H as follows, but cannot get it to work

Which gives me proper result...but the problem i m facing is i have many columns after L4 like M4, N4, O4 and so on....where i have to get the result.

So for that every time i have to paste the above formula and manually change the col_index_num i.e. 6 then 7,8,9 in every column where i use the above vlookup. So is there anyway that it will append the col_num_index by 1....i.e.

I am trying to find out whether it is possible to reference to a sheet index number, instead of sheet name, in a VLOOKUP formula.

For instance, normally I would write:

VLOOKUP(A1,'ExampleSheet'!A1:B10,2,False)

(I hope got the translation to English language Excel correct)

Let's say that the sheet index of Examplesheet is 2 (at least it is 2 the way VBA sees it).

Is there a way I could reference sheet number 2 in the VLOOKUP formula, instead of its name? My sheet names vary, but the formula should look in the same area, regardless of name.

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 should be 1/12/2010 The answer will be put in ROW A COLUMN I

When was the last time ANDY sold a car irrespective of color? The answer should be 1/12/2010 The answer will be put in ROW A COLUMN J

When was the last time BILL sold a RED car? The answer should be 1/10/2010. The answer will be put in ROW B COLUMN I

When was the last time BILL sold a car irrespective of color The answer should be 1/11/2010 The answer will be put in ROW B COLUMN J

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.

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

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)

Is there a way to automatically change the column index number in the VLOOKUP formula when copying the formula to columns? For example, when I copy a VLOOKUP formula from column A to column B, the cell references will change, but the column index remains the same. I'd like the column index to be increased by 1.

I need a formula for F3 that will round-down E3 and find its corresponding row in the table to the right and find its intersection with the coating listed in I3. Does that make sense?

I've tried, to no avail: =VLOOKUP(E3,$J$3:$Q$19,MATCH(I3,$K$1:$Q$1)+1) =INDEX($K$3:$Q$19,MATCH(E3,$J$3:$J$19,1),MATCH(I3,$K$2:$Q$2,0))

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.

I've 2 worksheets, Summary and Sales. I need to get the total sales figure from the "Sales" worksheet onto the Summary worksheet. Sales data are pasted onto the worksheet monthly. Tried using vlookup but problem is, the column containing the total sales figure may vary and I need to update the vlookup formula. Another problem is that sometimes the Total sales (the lookup value) is not in the first column. Tried using the Index and Match combo but cannot get it to work. I've attached a simple mock up to hopefully illustrate my case better. I believe the experts in this forum should find this rather easy!

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
