I'm trying to make an excel formula that generalizes product names based on their format. So the general format would be XYZ08/T13. I know a ? is equal to a general letter, but is their a symbo that specifically means letter or number. I'm running into problems using the ? because the formula ends up identifying additional items that are not products as products.
Our company has a shipping report spreadsheet that has the job number in column A and the ship date in column F. I want to track other things on a separate spreadsheet. So far, we are only down to row 1440 so in order to account for future jobs, my code on the other spreadsheet is:
Also, the jobs are arranged by ship date, not by number order.
This has worked perfectly for months but for some reason, it will no longer recognize job numbers greater than 1331. The format is the same between the working and non-working cell. Is there a max limit for vlookups that I am not aware of? If this was a sudden failure, I could nail it down but there has to be an underlying reason I'm not seeing.
Here is a sample of my spreadsheet: Ship Date 1325 12/27/13 1326 3/10/14 1327 1/4/14 1328 1/31/14 1329 3/3/14 1330 1/22/14 1331 1/15/14 1332 #N/A 1333 #N/A 1334 #N/A 1335 #N/A 1336 #N/A 1337 #N/A 1338 #N/A 1339 #N/A 1340 #N/A
I am trying to use a =vlookup(and( type formula. Excel accepted my syntax, but the formula is not working. Here are the details:
=VLOOKUP(AND(E2,O2),'[SOURCE DATA FOR PROFILES.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B:$G,6,FALSE)
The values from cell E2 and O2 are both present on a row in the SOURCE DATA spreadsheet, and column 6 is the last column in my table (both values appear before column 6, but not next to each other).
The formula returns #N/A. Under those circumstances, shouldn't it return the value of column 6 on the row where those two values are present together?
Do the columns containing the values have to be next to each other in the table for this to work? Does the data type matter (one is a number, the other a street address)? The value to be returned is a number.
I am trying to get this tricky formula to work with vlookup and if error. The problem is that excel will not recognize the formula when I try to drag it down, but instead repeats the same numbers over again. I've tried some combinations using vlookup, rows, and if error, but it doesn't seem to work. So I'm trying to drag down the formula from g3:g99, to reference either cells b8:99, or whichever value I enter into f1, on down to b99.
I have a sheet set up with names. I have 2 other sheets with spouses and children that belong to the first sheet. I want to insert a formula that will look up the correct spouse (based on a member number) and put in it the column. Same with the children. I tried the vlookup function, but it did not return the correct result.
I used the formatting wizard to make all dates the format of dd/mm/yyyy but, now, when I put a date in the column it throws up a number '41313' instead of a date, even if I manually input the date in the same format as above.
Also, I have tried to turn cells back into general number fields, but this doesn't appear to be changing it back to a date format..
There are HUNDREDS of dates I might have lost if I can't get them to start showing as dates again!
I would like to create a formula that compares a number in one cell to the dates I have displayed in two different cells. If true, then I want it to display the Currency value from another cell.
______A________B________C________D_____ |1| Due Date | Amount | 1/01/2007 | 1/15/2007 |2|___4________$98_______________________
A2 is the DAY it's due B2 is the AMT that is due
I can create an IF...THEN statement where if A2 is >= C1 BUT less than D1 then the value is B2, BUT it only works if I change A2 to an actual date which means i have to change it every month...which would not help with forecasting future transactions. So in the example above, the value would be in C2 and not D2.
I am trying to sum up column V, when for a specific date in column z, and only sum when the two names EEM, Merri1* are involved. I used the * because there are a couple of variations for MErri1 after the 1. The formula is not working. I believe it's the way I'm combining this
I am trying to use a simple formula: COUNTIF($CT$2:$CT:$430749,CT2)
I am trying to fill this down all the rows (430,749 rows). The formula behaves as its supposed to up to around row 650. After this point, all resulting values are all the same, which happens to be the same value that was returned from the original formula in C2. However, this is not correct. It's like the formula just stops working after row ~650. I tried F9 without success.
Is there a way to put a formula within a Vlookup formula that will act as the column number? For example I have this simple Vlookup formula: VLOOKUP($B4,'TAB'!$A:$N,8) and 8 references the year 2014. Well if I update the numbers on the separate tab and the year 2014 changes to a different column, I want the formula to automatically change to that.
I am using vlookup to return a number from sheet 3. I then need to use the number that vlookup returns in a formula on the worksheet, but since the cell containing the number it returns is actually a formula itself (=Sheet3!A5), the formula returns #value!. How do I get just a number/value that I can use in the next formula?
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.
Two tabs in an excel spreadsheet. One with this formula and another one named Vlookup1 with the info (three columns indicating diagnosis codes for PT (Physical Therapy), OT (Occupational Therapy) and ST (Speech Therapy). Out of approximately 350 rows, this formula works perfectly fine with all but three customers’ names. It seems to be only with the last three customers –sorted alphabetically– and can’t figure out how to solve it. Have reduced the amount of rows in the info tab / have changed the format of all cells for these 3 customers / have retyped all information under another row and inserted above all the conflict rows but it always brings “0” as the cell value – not even False….
I have a vlookup that returns an #N/A error due to the table array originally being formatted as text. The data is simply a two or three digit number.
I have tried everything I can think of to get the table array to equal the lookup value.
I formated cell to number. I tried tab delimated/finish. I tried typing a 1 in a different cell and doing a paste special then multiply. I tried copying to a different worksheet. I just cannot get it to work.
VLOOKUP will only work to a set limit number of text characters in a cell. So I can search for the value "*orange*" if the cells contain a reasonable amount of text, but as soon as this exceeds some limit, it returns BLANK. I've also tried using INDEX/MATCH with same problem. Is there a workaround or alternative function?
This will work and return the text in cell A2 A2: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Orange. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
This will return BLANK A2: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Orange. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
I have two worksheets and VLookup is not working between the two worksheets. I made sure that type of text is same . COntent is trimmed to avoid any blank spaces. If i put the formula for the same sheet range i get the value but for another worksheet i m getting #NA error.
I use Vlookup all the time but this is one has be stumped. On the attached spreadsheet I trying to lookup the description on sheet 2 (lookup data) and return it to description on sheet 1 (orig data). I have the both fields formatted as text so I'm not sure why it's not returning the value?
I have the following formula that has ceased to work in excel. I don't think there are any errors in it so I'm unsure as to why the link no longer works. Neither of the files I'm using has moved location on the server.
I have 3 worksheets for 3 separate managers, each sheet has a column which uses a COUNTBLANK function to work out the number of days off an employee has had off in the last two weeks:
Now the formula works perfectly on each worksheet, however I also have a master worksheet (which is identically set out and formatted to the 3 manager sheets) which uses a vlookup formula to pull the data from all 3 worksheets into one at the beginning of the workbook.
The problem I've come across is that the COUNTBLANK formula doesn't work on the master worksheet - I think this has something to do with the vlookup formula entered into the cells which I consider to be blank, but excel doesn't?
I've tried using a separate vlookup formula to pull the data from the 3 managers worksheets and this does work unless an employee appears on more than one managers' sheet - then the data from both worksheets is added together.....
Is there another function I could use to display the information I need to?
