I'm having trouble getting my payroll data to combine. I've been using VLOOKUP to look up employees by their Personel Number (Column A) and return their name (column B), Cost Center (Column C), the Fund that they are paid from (Column D) and the Amount they are paid (Column E). The problem is that some employees are being paid out of 2 or more funds and VLOOKUP is only returning the fund that appears first, leaving out the other portion of their pay and thus making my grand total quite far off. How can I get Excel to return all the entries for a particular Personel Number? There are more than 16000 employees, so this is no small spreadsheet.
I have a list of countries in column A, there are duplicates in this list. In column B are numbers corresponding to the country.
A B IRELAND 1221 GERMANY 2341 USA 3443 IRELAND 2231
Ireland could be in the list and have up to 20 different values beside it in column B
On a separate sheet i have a drop down list of all the countries. I am looking for a vlookup or something similar to return a list of all the numbers beside IRELAND when Ireland is selected in the drop down list.
I had been trying a vlookup but this looks at the list and stops at the first "IRELAND" it finds and just returns the value beside the first "IRELAND"
I have a workbook with 2 sheets. The sheet called 'data' contains all purchasers names (which do get repeated), the item they bought and 3 item costs, all in range A1:E15. The 'lookup' sheet allows the user to enter a purchasers name in cell B1, then I want all the items that purchaser bought listed with the corresponding item costs. I've attached a sample spreadsheet.
I've been trying to research vlookup to see how I can use it or something like it to return multiple value for a dynamic chart I'm trying to build. I've found several paged to give examples but I can not seem to figure it out with my sheet b/c the examples differ from mine I have a financial spreadsheet with several categories and I want to make a chart for all my utilities. i need a array formula (i think) that will search for (example) My salary, my wife's salary and other income and extract those values in the next column (Credit (+)) to build a chart... (i will use this same concept to make other charts as well.) The Categories column is F and the values will need to be extracted for the chart are in G. doesnt matter where they are extracted to but for the sake of being speific ill say starting P50.
I'm trying to use vlookup to return multiple values for the same unique identifier. I've read a couple of examples within the forums, but I haven't been able to find anything I understand. I have employee ID's and these ID's have specific access associated with their ID's and each access is listed within a different row. Within a new spreadsheet I removed all duplicates of the employee ID so now I no longer have a one to one match between spreadsheets, so I would like to create a vlookup that will list all access associated with each employee ID. I have attached a sample of the data sheet I am working with.
I am attempting to graph data based on work down in specific work centers to track efficiency. I can download all items that were finished for a certain time frame (yesterday, last month, last year, etc.), but the data only shows up as the item, quantity, and the date of closure. I take that info and copy and paste it to the close out tab of the other work book, where it references another sheet to pull in the time required to complete the task, and the work center that did the work. My problem is when an item has multiple work centers on the same item and then taking that info into a pivot table to graph. This can be done manually, but I was hoping I could create a way to only have to copy and paste the data and have it return the work done.
I have included a shortened version of what I am trying to do, eventually there will be 25000+ items on the data tab, but if I can get this to work, then i assume I can extrapolate.
I have an excel sheet with multiple columns. In one column I have X's and in another I have a limit. I need to look down the stuff column, find every X, match each X to its corresponding limit and then compare all the limits and return only the smallest limit found. I.e if I was looking down the stuff column I would find 4,6,8,8,3 and thus I would return 3 as my value. I am very new to working with excel formulas,
When I use my vlookup function and hit enter, the no value shows up and I can still see the function syntax that I wrote in the cell. Here's a sample of what my sheet looks like:
Number Name Hazard Number 2
I need to know the value in the 'number 3' column is for the 'number' column. For example, I need '1302-76-7' inputted in a column adjacent to one of the first three columns. Another example: I need 'na - 07' inputted in the same row that has a 'number' of '1073'. This is how I want it to look:
Number Name Hazard Number3
When I type in the vlookup formula listed above, nothing happens. This is exactly how it looks in my spreadsheet, even when I click another cell or hit enter. Is my syntax wrong or have I just missed something?
I have two workbooks which are data dumps from another program. Say I have WO #, Task #, and Cost in workbook1 and WO #, Task # in workbook2. I need to compare the WO# in workbook2 with WO# in workbook1 if it matches I need to compare the Task # in workbook2 with the Task# in workbook1 (but it must compare the same row in which the WO # match was found) then it must return the cost from workbook1 to workbook2 ( again the cost must come from the same row in which the WO and Task match were found in).
This could be a VBA code or even a formula that does not matter.
I need "my sheet" to populate (columns A,B,&C) with some source data; however, I need the lookup to reference both retailer# and color (columns D&E) and return other information such as description, color description, etc...
I have a spreadsheet with twenty columns. Column A has an item number (say "Clutch"), and the remainder of the columns have values. However, there only be one column in the range B:T which will have a value on the same row as "Clutch" (say "Black" in column "N").
How I can I return "Black" using a vlookup or should I be using something else?
