# VLOOKUP Using Results Of Formula As LOOKUP VALUE?

Oct 25, 2013

I have a cell that I must remove the first 2 characters "RO" for each value in a column on a sheet called RAW DATA and put into a cell on a sheet called ROSS DATA. Some of the values in that cell have 3 digits after the RO and some have 5 digits. To do that I used

=REPLACE('RAW DATA'!A3,1,2,"")

Then I need to use this new resultant string as the lookup value in a VLOOKUP. The VLOOKUP will be looking at a named range called DAP on a sheet called DAP, in column 5 for an exact match and I need it to return that value to the cell.

I have tried using the indirect to no avail in different ways, and not sure that I fully understand the usage.

## Lookup Formula To Return Multiple Results?

Dec 8, 2013

I am trying to create a workbook where I can log what work I have done in one spreadsheet and allocate an invoice number to it. In a separate spreadsheet within the same workbook I have created an invoice template. When I enter in the invoice number into the invoice template it's not collecting the correct information.

For example, if I want the details for invoice 10 to show in the invoice template, details for invoice 19 appear.

I have used this formula:
=IFERROR(INDEX(ServiceRecord[[Invoice number]:[Date invoice issued]],
SMALL(IF(ServiceRecord[[Invoice number]:[Date invoice issued]]
='Invoice TEMPLATE'!\$F\$8,ROW(ServiceRecord[Invoice number])),ROW(1:1)),2),"")

I am wanting to add new information as time goes on and also to be able to put in any invoice number into the invoice template to recall information as needed.

## Lookup Formula Finding Incorrect Results

Nov 3, 2009

If I type in an age in A1, in A2 I want an age group to appear

the groups are
20-24
25-29
30-34
35-39
40-44
45-49
50-54
55-59
60-65

so far, if I type in an age then it normally enters the group ABOVE what I want

i.e. if I enter “24” then it put the group “25-29”. if I enter “42” it puts “45-49” and so on.

=LOOKUP(\$A1,{0,16,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55,60},{"<16","20-24","25-29","30-34","35-39","40-44","45-49","50-54","55-59","60+"})

## Vlookup And Match Results Given By A Formula?

Jan 22, 2014

I want to set up a formula which automatically does vlookup or same sort of function on numbers given out by a link through a formula.

As a example i have attached the sheet.

## Vlookup Formula Is Not Displaying Any Results

Dec 18, 2009

i put in a vlookup formula and it doesn't display any results, it just diplays the formula with the = sign in the cell. it does that with any formula i enter. i tried hitting it and everything.

## User Form That Will Display The Results From A Lookup Formula

Apr 23, 2008

I would like to create a user form that will display the results from a lookup formula. The userform would have 2 textboxes, so from the formula below BZ109 would be textbox1 and CA109 textbox2. Once data is entered in these textboxes you would hit submit to return the results in a message box. What would the code be for the sumbit button?

=VLOOKUP(BZ109, INDIRECT(CA109), 11, 0)

## Macro To Add VLOOKUP Formula To Lookup Another Workbook

Jun 26, 2008

I'm running against this problem: a file should be run whenever people want.
however, the last part to complete the file is that the file from yesterday should be opened.

From this file data will be extracted via the VLookup formula...that's the plan.

However, with dim statements it won't work.
for now the code is:

Dim mynum, mysearch, this1, that1, other1

'Open the file from yesterday. Define the date string of this week and last week
mysearch = Left(mynum, 8) & Right(mynum, 2) - 1 'mynum is a date string like 2008-06-26
this1 = "Outstanding invoices " & mynum & ".xls"
that1 = "Outstanding invoices " & mysearch & ".xls"
Set other1 = Workbooks(that1). Sheets("Raw"). Range("comments")
ChDir "Z: FINANCEF&AAPInvoices overdue"
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"Z:FINANCEF&AAPInvoices overdue" & that1

the "this1, that1" etc appear when you point with your mouse in the code as correct but
the VLookup function won't work: it takes a long time and when interupted the macro the cells show the VLookup formula with "[that1]" instead of the workbook's name.
I also tried to dim that1 as workbook but that did not help.

## Vlookup Formula Changing Lookup Range Automatically

Apr 9, 2009

As I copy and past my lookup formula down the page it is changing the lookup range which I think is what is giving me so many #N/A results. My first Formula is
=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,Coors2!A2:D3765,3,FALSE),IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,'AB2'!A2:C13944,3,FALSE),(VLOOKUP(A2 ,'WM2'!A2:C4843,3,FALSE))))

Then for instance at line 59 the formula is
=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A59,Coors2!A59:D3822,3,FALSE),IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A59,'AB2'!A59:C14001,3,FALSE),(VLOOKU P(A59,'WM2'!A59:C4900,3,FALSE))))

## Using List Of Data With Wildcards In VLookup Formula As Lookup Value?

Mar 8, 2013

I have a list of rules on how to group account numbers. An example is below. I have a very long list of full account numbers (no wildcards). There are roughly 75 rules on how to group the over 40,000 accounts. I want to use the vlookup to determine what group each full account number (always 11 characters) would belong to? It seems that the vlookup isn't treating the ?'s as wildcards. I can use the full account number rules with the wildcards in the cell in the sumif function though.

So ultimately I would like to have my list of account numbers like 40000000000 and 40000000001 know that they belong in group 1 based on the rule table below.

Full Account Number
Account
Subaccount
Group

## Fastest Lookup Method: Use A Key To Lookup A Value (VLookup, Index/Match, DGet, And The Rest)

Mar 26, 2008

Excel offers many ways to use a key to lookup a value (VLookup, Index/Match, DGet, and the rest). What's the fastest way to perform a lookup of a small table of, say, 30 rows of key-value pairs? Theoretically, it would be most efficient to use a branch table (also known as a jump table). See the wikipedia article for branch tables: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Branch_table. Does Excel/VBA have a way to create a branch table for such lookups?

## Change Formula To The Results Of The Formula For Cells That Have Results

May 9, 2006

I have a range that has formulas that are based on other fcells outside the range.

What I want to do is, if the cell has a value to remove the formula and paste the results. If the filed is blank (no results from the formula) to leave the formula in place.

There could be a marco to run when this process is needed.

## Results Show Results Of Formula, But Should Be Blank

Jul 27, 2006

I am trying to create formula that will show overtime worked in a given day. The code I am using is a simple one ([ cell - 8], for hours worked). The problem is when the time cells are blank/not used it shows a -8 in the cell. what I need to do to create a code that will eliminate the -8 from showing. The cell its self is taking the result from another cell with a formula and then subtracting 8 from the result of the formula in the other cell.

## Sum All Results Of Lookup

Aug 30, 2007

I have a sheet with Product IDs and amounts. A Product ID may occur more than once. I want to sum all amounts for all occurrences of each Product ID.
(see attached file)

I have written the following code, but as you can see, it is returning an error, so I've done something wrong. I'm also getting a Compile error: "For Each control variable must be Variant or Object"

Function GetTotal(PO_ProdID As Range, LURng As Range)
'
' Function to Lookup Concatenated PO # & ProdID
' & Return the Total of all dollar amount listed
'
Dim ce As String, tot As Long
tot = 0
For Each ce In LURng
tot = tot + ce.Offset(0, 1).Value + ce.Offset(0, 2).Value
Next ce
End Function

## Lookup Results Using Name Manager?

Mar 14, 2014

I have a workbook that I use to calculate sales by agents. In the workbook I have the following sheets:

Monthly_Report - Where the results are return to the from end user
team_ref_sheet - Where team / manager details are added / updated
data_sheet - Where my raw data is added

On my team_ref_sheet I have created 4 columns that have been renamed using name manager as follows:

team_manager
agent_names
dealer_code
employee_number

On my "Monthly_Report" sheet I have created a table where I want m data to be displayed to the front end user. The table starts in column C8.

In column D10 through to all the other rows I would like my sheet to reference to my "team_ref_sheet" and return all agent names in the range, up until it reaches a blank row.

## Lookup With Multiple Results

Oct 29, 2009

After a lot of searching and trying I still didn't get to something that works.

My situation:
sheet1
column A column B
true "abc"
true "bcd"
false "cde"
true "def"
false "efg"
false "fgh"

on sheet2, in cell A1, I would like to get all results from column B that correspond 'TRUE' in that row.

So, in cell A1 on sheet2, i would like to see "abc", "bcd", "def".

VLOOKUP returns only one result, of course. How do I solve this?

I'm not good at VB, so preferably only with formulas!

## Lookup Results For 1st & Last Day Of Month

Dec 30, 2006

I have a series of daily data in columns sorted by date (see attached .xls).

I am trying to create a table that extracts the value on the last day of a given month, and of the first day of that month, for each of the months in the data series.

I have been trying to get lookups and match functions to work but to no avail.

## Concatenated All Results Of Lookup

Aug 29, 2007

I'm trying to use this function which was posted as an answer (looking up a single value and returning multiple results, concatenating those results in one cell):

Function getfiles(DRng As Range, LURng As Range)
For Each ce In LURng
If ce.Value = DRng Then
holder = holder & ce.Offset(0, 1).Value & ", "
End If
Next ce
getfiles = Left(holder, Len(holder) - 2)
End Function

What is "ce" here? Auto Merged Post;additional info:

the original question was posted by jwhite68, Feb 27th 2007, "Return Multiple Values From Lookup To Single Cell"

## Lookup Number Results In #N/A

Sep 8, 2007

i have this file that has about 12000 rows of numbers (a individual number can appear more than one). i'm trying to use a lookup to find if that number appears and if it does then bring back the amount next to the number.. however because the vlookup sees that the number more than one in the list it will bring back #N/A every time. Is there a way to get around this??

## Lookup And Return Multiple Results

Mar 31, 2014

I want to look up a particular value and return according results horizontally and vertically. Attached is the excel.

## Lookup Value And Return Multiple Results

May 4, 2014

I have been using this formula to do lookup and return values

"=INDEX(ResultsColumn,SMALL(INDEX((CriteriaColumn=Criteria)*(ROW(CriteriaColumn)-ROW(FirstCellOfCriteriaColumn)+1),),COUNTIF(CriteriaColumn,"<>"&Criteria)+ROWS(A\$1:A1)))"

I'm using this formula in a roster scene to pick up people that call in sick and display their restored job in a different cell. The problem that I am having say for example employee one calls in sick at 2 pm and i assign that job in a corresponding cell to another, then employee 2 calls in sick for the 1pm shift (the call was made after i have already restored employee one a replacement), the formula automatically places the 1 pm in the cell above the 2pm.

Is there a way to stop it from changing the value once a value is entered in a corresponding cell?

## Two Item Lookup Multiple Results

Jan 15, 2009

I am trying to do a two way lookup with multlple results. In the example attached I want to know the names of the people who were in Boston on 01/02/09. I have tried a number of index, match formulas to no avail.....

## Returning Multiple Results For One Lookup Value

Jan 28, 2009

I have been searching all day about this topic and while there are many "solutions" none of them fits my criteria and I can't figure out how to tailor it.

I am using a very basic data sheet to populate a purchase order. I want to be able to search a style and have all the data (color, units and price) automatically fill in upon entering the style number, I have been using vlookup but this only works if there is one color per style.

I have found different lookup functions that give the value +1 when the data is sorted but it returns the value even if it doens't fit the search criteria, I only want to return the second value if it correlates to the initial lookup

## Finding Results Not In A Table Lookup

Jul 31, 2007

It highlights (with an x) all data that appears in both sheets a and sheet b. However I want it to highlight all the ones that are no on sheetA.

## Average Multiple Results For The Lookup

Dec 11, 2008

I have a lookup that needs to average multiple results for the lookup... columns
Q to W

Looks like it is only returning the first found value.

## Lookup And Pull Results Into New Sheet

Mar 27, 2009

I am trying to find a function that will scan down a column to find a particular criteria. I would like all the cells that meet this criteria to have their entire row pulled through to a new sheet.

For Example, In the attached spreadsheet, I would like everyone in sheet 1 to have their details pulled through to sheet 2 if they are in class 1, sheet 3 if they are in class 2, and sheet 4 if they are in class 3.

## Presentation Of Multiple Results Of A Lookup

Aug 17, 2005

I have some data arranged in columns/rows as follows:

Location Name
--------- ------
United States Sarah Buchannan
United States Walter Smith
France Phil Barney
Italy Anna Wilson
Germany Philip Watson
France Neil Anderson

I want to have some function in my spreadsheet that will neatly present the names of the people at a given location in a separate part of the worksheet

e.g. a display of all people in France would have something like:

France
-------
Phil Barney
Neil Anderson

Ideally I would like to populate cells rows in a different column with the multiple results of the lookup ("persons at a given location") and that change in location for any individual would result in the list of persons at a given location being automatically updated.

Did alot of digging around and managed to construct a UDF that would display the results of the lookup in a single cell - it is however not very readable. But, I found out that a cell based UDF is not allowed to populate other cells other that the one where the function is entered!

## Lookup Multiple Results Sort

May 23, 2007

I would like a formula to do a lookup multiple results but in a sorted matter.

Example: ....

## Lookup All Occurences & Merge Results

Oct 21, 2008

1st sheet is giving me partial results with a vlookup - only gives me the first match to my ref number.
2nd sheet is the source data and contains refs and one or more matches.
NB: This is just a sample of the data, however in my original excel file with 25000 records there can be one or even up to 10 matches.

What I'd like to achieve;
Sheet One; Column B should give all matches for the ref number found in Column A.
It should merge all these matches to fit one cell so that all matches are sorted one under each other with line breaks.
As there is 25000 records to treat I would rather not have to do anything manually!

I've read on the forum that it's best not to merge but I don't know how to get around the fact that I need all the matches per ref no in one cell to reimport into my database.

## Return Lookup Results Of All Occurences

Jan 30, 2008

I am using vlookup to return data from a range that could have the same name in column A.

There are 8 columns
Column 1 is Name
Column 2 is Sun
Column 3 is Mon
and so on.

The problem I have is that a name can appear in two places in column1 with relevant information in different columns:
Fred appears twice, on Wed he is on a course the rest of the week he is on leave. I need a C to be returned for Wed & A/l for the rest of the week.

## Add Two VLOOKUP Results Together In VBA

Aug 20, 2014

I have a macro which returns the results for

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP("EMPLOYEE",Z:AA,2,0)),0,VLOOKUP("EMPLOYEE",Z:AA,2,0))

As of today, the entry EMPLOYEE is sometimes written as it was EMPLOYEE, and sometimes as EMP. I have to add these two together. How do I change the code of the macro?

Before it was:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(""[EMPLOYEE"",C[-16]:C[-14],2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(""EMPLOYEE"",C[-16]:C[-14],2,0))"

I tried "=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(""EMPLOYEE"",C[-16]:C[-14],2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(""EMPLOYEE"",C[-16]:C[-14],2,0))"+
"IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(""EMP"",C[-16]:C[-14],2,0)),0,VLOOKUP(""EMP"",C[-16]:C[-14],2,0))"

as I would in Excel, but of course it doesn't work.
