VLookup - Single Value Lookup Returning Multiple Records Into Multiple Columns
Feb 7, 2014
Certification and Training tracking.xlsx
I want to create a certification only list on a separate tab of training that has been completed where a certification has been issued (as indicated by a "Y" in the "Certification?" column on the training tracking tab) and then populate from some of the fields vs. all of the fields.
What I have now, only pulls the first occurence, not all occurences. I saw that I could have identified the multiple columns that needed to be populated, but it didn't work either, so I'm fine putting a separate vlookup in each column.
I have a table of data (say Column1 to Column 5) with multiple rows.
Column 1 to 4 will have the lookup values in multiple rows and Column 5 data should be picked up using vlookup or other lookup function.
I managed to somehow bring all these lookup values in (Column 1 to 4) in a single column in another sheet. I am now trying to use some lookup or other functions to match this single column and pick column 5 data in original sheet. Result i am expecting is lookup value in first column and next to it column 5 value.
It is basically a lookup wherein lookup value is spread over multiple rows and columns and result column is fixed. I tried using vlookup, but lookup value column and column number had to change every time when i moved from column1 to 4.
I'm working on a database right now for our school, similar to a directory. What I want to do is be able to look up what items a staff member has been issued and when/if they were returned. What I have right now is one sheet with all the information about the staff that looks like the one below. I want to create a separate sheet where you could look up a staff member by last name and can find all the information in the array relative the the specific cell looked up.
Last Name First Name Position Building Items
So, on the "lookup" sheet, I want to be able to input either Doe and have the look up return cells B2:E6, or if I input Smith it should return cells B7:D11.
I've been experimenting with Vlookup, hlookup, index, and match but haven't been able to get exactly what I want..
I have attached a file with an example of what i am looking for. The data in columns A and B are my original Data. There are multiple instances of e-mail address on the left but I need to bring in each data horizontally. I would like a formula to enter into E2:J6 to pull the information in.
I have a range of columns i.e. 23 columns (i.e. B through X). Someone can write records in these columns (starting from B21).
Duplicates are considered the rows with similar data in columns 3 and 11. I know about the removeduplicate method and works really well but i want the duplicates not to be removed. Instead another column shall be checked for date of entry (user will entry date in format dd/mm/yyyy). The newest entry will change the value of the cell in column 4 (islatest column)to TRUE while all other records will be FALSE. This will work with the filtering of data on a pivot table on another worksheet.
I am trying to rank records from multiple sections of a single array. Since there are over 100 sections I want to use a formula. Using the MATCH function I have the first row for each section of the array (Col D below). The psuedo code of what I'm trying to do is:
RANK(B1,Bfirst row of section:Bfirst row of next section -1)
Example (results in Column C):
A B C D 1 West 100 3 1 2 West 150 1 4 3 West 125 2 4 East 50 3 5 East 75 2 5 East 140 1
I will also need to increment the section as I complete each section of the array. Am I trying to do too much in a single cell??
I have a set of related variables that are split over multiple worksheets, and I need to be able to take specific information, duplicate certain values and produce an output sheet for use in a separate piece of software.
The variables are: Position Number (Sheet 1) Position Title (Sheets 1 and 2) Position Requirement (Sheet 2) Requirement Importance (Sheet 2)
The output sheet requires a list of all the requirements for each position number, which means the position number itself needs duplicating (in new rows) X number of times, where X is the number of requirements assigned. The appropriate requirements are then to be pasted in next to each position number (and the requirements can be found by comparing position number to title, and from title to requirements).
Normally, Iíd be able to do this using lookups and so forth, but my problem arises when I have multiple position numbers with the same related title (in the attached example, there are three plumbers with unique position numbers). I canít figure out how to say to Excel ďa plumber has five requirements, and there are three plumbers, so duplicate each position number for each plumber five times, then insert the appropriate qualifications (and their associated importance values) next to the position numbersĒ.
I have two workbooks at the moment, one which holds a whole host of customer and accounts details and another which holds only the customer details. What I'm trying to do is cross reference the two to determine if a customers details appear on both and if they do highlight this, ultimately I'd like it to pull the customers account number back but even if it highlights a match that would be sufficient.
The only unique criteria I have to do this are customer surname and customer postcode.
In the Customer details spreadsheet I'm attempting to enter a formula which will look at the specific surname & postcode held on the row in which it is entered. It will then look at all of the rows on the other spreadsheet and determine whether any of them meet both criteria.
If they do I'd like it to display "match" if they don't I'd like it to display "no match"
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
I am trying to connect a special date and a price to a special name (please see the attached file).
In sheet 1 I have the following: - In column A I have a set of different names. - In column B I have a set of different dates. - In column C I have a set of different prices on bonds that off course refers to the different names at their respective dates.
In rest of the sheets I want an overview of the different bonds, and what their prices are at the exact date. The problem is that if I use the vlookup it is only the first value that will be extracted. How can I get all of the prices corresponding to the different dates to the correct bond. I also want the possibility to update this every day.
I have attached a sample spreadsheet which describes my problem.
In C2 and C3 under the first business coalitions column, I have written in text what I would like to be displayed automatically with a formula. The trouble is that, as you can see, Abbott Laboratories is a member of 3 business coalitions. Therefore, a simple vlookup doesn't work because that would only return 1 result.
On one of the reports which i am doing to identify the series of values for a single input data. In the attached spreadsheet there are 2 tables, table 1 has complete data with column a is the lookup value and column b is output value
I have to fill the table 2 in the same manner as shown in the attached template. there could be many different for a single lookup value but i am targeting to look for the 1st 9 matches and last matched value. eg. if i am looking for the value 9 which has 15 different values i want to display the 1st 9 matches (p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x and ad - being the 15th match)
Not sure whether this could be possible by using formulas?
Basically I'm trying to find column #3 value in my third sheet and return the second column value. Problem is that the data is located more than once in the third sheet so I need the value of each one of them. So, with this example, Q5942X is located twice in the third sheet and each time, it has a quantity of 2. I would need either to return the value 2 twice horizontally or even better, add the two together. The first sheet, the example is row #45.
This formula should be in the column following "majoration".
I have a questions regarding extracting records using a partial text search in multiple columns.
I would like to do a partial text search of the letter "j" in the Name column, and search for the number "1" in the Phone column and extract the corresponding records.
The formula I have been using is as follows: =IF(ROWS(C$2:C2)>$B$2,"",INDEX(C$2:C$6,SMALL(IF(AND(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("J",$K$25:$K$29)), ISNUMBER(SEARCH("1",$L$25:$L$29))),ROW($J$25:$J$29)-ROW($J$25)+1),ROWS(C$2:C2))))
I know something very similar was posted before, but unfortunately, it wasn't what I was looking for. I have a Worksheet tracking several associates and the department they have done work in. (Our associates are contractors for other departments). I need to have a final worksheet that allows me to pull up a name, and display every dept they worked with in the past week.
I have attached a copy of what I am trying to do. I've been researching vlookup for a while and everything I try doesn't seem to work. I'm also fairly new to Excel, so most of this is my first time trying these formulas.
In the attached test.xls file, I have two sheets created. The first is "Responsibility," and the second is "List." The data in "List" is what I am trying to pull from. As you can see, the people's names are listed more than once as the list goes down. On the "Responsibility" page I have each person's name one time. In the "Extinguisher" column, I'm wanting it to list every number that is found next to the person's name on the "List" sheet. For example:
Column B2 on the "Responsibility" sheet should read as follows:
I am attempting to place a formula in cell b3 in the attached spreadsheet on the "sheet to pull data into" tab 1 (cell is highlighted yellow) to retrieve value in the yellow highlighted cell in the "Sheet that contains data" which is on a seperate worksheet within the same workbook.
The cells highlighted red in the "sheet to pull into" tab (cells: a1, a3, b1, and b3) are the criteria that needs to be matched to those cells on "sheet that contains data" tab in order to ensure the value returned is correct.Sample of problem.xlsx <----see the attached sample spreadsheet.
I built an Excel Macro to pull information from my schedule and compile it within another Worksheet. The Macro below searches for an instance of "Unavailable" and then populates my Data Worksheet with the WeekDays (ie: M-W-F or ALL Week), the Details (ie: Vacation or Training) and the Name of the employee. I struggled with a way to populate my employee name as "unavailable" isn't always offset by the same amount of characters to employee name (as it is with WeekDays and Details). Instead, I collected the row in which "Unavailable" was found.
I used the Vlookup function to populate the number of Absences and it worked swell.
C2 is populated with Weekdays (ie: ALL week or M-W-F) O contains a list of possible day combinations P contains the number of days
I hoped to use a similar function to populate my employee names. This didn't work well a 'tall.
I'm attempting to match a name with the row and column numbers of data that is laid out in a grid format. It looks something like this:
Denson Matthews Smith
This works just fine, except for the fact that once in awhile the same name will appear in the grid twice, and the row and column returned will be off (it will return the row for one of the Smiths, for example, and the column for the other).
I know why this is occurring so I'm looking for a better way to do this. The good part is that I don't necessarily need both locations returned for each "Smith" ; I just need the correct row and column for at least one of the instances. I'm looking for a better way to do this.
