# VLookup With A False Return

Jan 15, 2009

I have 2 columns of data: Column A is basically postcodes, but just the 1st part and Column B is a #2. If somewhere else on the sheet I type in the postcode IE. SW19 it will show besides it in my lookup the number 2. However if I type in a postcode that is not listed in Column A, I'd like to to return the value 1. I cannot figure this out. My code is:

## Using VLookUp To Return True Or False?

Feb 21, 2014

If a value in cell A1 on Sheet Report is found in Range B2:B10 on Sheet Hierarchy Then return True Else False

I have the following so far:

I want Match to be either True or False. Also, is there a way to know the cell the value was found in if True? How do I make this work?

## VLookup Return Blank If False

Jan 17, 2012

I have the following formula,

=IF(AH10="","",IF(VLOOKUP(AH10,Sheet3!C:D,2,FALSE)="","",VLOOKUP(AH10,Sheet3!C:D,2,FALSE)))

that I would like to return a blank cell not N/A if the value that is in "AH10" is not found.

## (multiple) VLOOKUP Function To Return Blank Field On False

Mar 10, 2009

Where in this function would I put " " to return a blank field if false is returned?

=IF(D18>=1,(VLOOKUP(C18,C7:E13,2,FALSE))-(VLOOKUP(C18,C7:E13,3,FALSE))+(VLOOKUP(C18,C7:E13,3,FALSE))*D18)

## Reconciliation Formula(s) - VLookup Two Cells And Return TRUE / FALSE For Match?

Mar 26, 2014

I'm trying to create a rec report, ideally on one page, for multiple criteria. The situation is we get a report on our trade positions (investment stuff) from an outside service we use. We also have a report internally from what we've booked. We're looking to tie out are basic things like price, original par, revised par, trade date, counter-party banks, etc. I've consolidated data from both sources on one page (DATA) where all data points are lined up (say EXTERNAL is from rows 1-500, and INTERNAL is 510-1010). Now I need to create a front page showing the result of each tie-out. The lookup value will be a combination of the fund name + trade ticket number which would almost guarantee a unique ID (fund name XYZ, ticket number 12345 = XYZ12345)

Current tabs on spreadsheet: DATA, EXTERNAL, INTERNAL. I need to add a REC page

Question: What formula can I use to check on each and return TRUE/FALSE? The goal is to have about 8 columns on the REC, each for one of the tie-outs (let's use price as an example.). I know the basic VLOOKUP to return one value, but it appears in this case I will need VLOOKUP to check two matching values based on unique ID XZY12345, compare the price, and return TRUE if they match, FALSE if they don't

Here's something I saw from one of our spreadsheets that I think does the same to confirm counter-party, though I have no idea how to read this lengthy formula.

=EXACT(VLOOKUP(IF(Q2="COMPANY",R2,Q2),FUNDS!\$M\$1:\$N\$400,2,FALSE),
INDEX(PENDING!\$G\$4:\$G\$3218,MATCH(CP!C2,PENDING!\$N\$4:\$N\$3218,0)))

## Formula To Return Value Instead Of False

Jan 6, 2009

In the estimate form I have attached, I want it to auto figure shipping by placing a X in front of shipping type. Which it is doing but how can I get it to show \$0.00 instead of false when no X is placed in front.

## IF Function To Return A False Value

Jun 5, 2009

I am trying to use the IF function to return a false value if the combined sum of a row is not the same as either of the 1st 2 cells. If that makes any sense!

This is the formula I would like to use. =IF(SUM(g3:g9)=g1 or g2 then y if true and x if false. I thought it would be easy but I can't figure out how to do it

## IsError And Vlookup :: Of False Or N/A Is Found

Sep 16, 2009

How do I re write this formula to incorporate iserror function to show "" when a value of false or N/A is found.

=IF(K8<>"",VLOOKUP(F8,'My Sheet'!\$F\$2:\$I\$489,4,FALSE))

## VLOOKUP Gives Error With False Expression

Mar 1, 2010

I have a formula that has been working and it looks like this

=VLOOKUP(A13;'IFS export'!\$A\$1:\$F\$19000;4;FALSE)

Now I want to use the same formula in an other workbook and it gives an error

=VLOOKUP(A2;DRAWING!\$A\$2:\$C\$9168;3;FALSE)

When I type this formula I get the window that says
"This formula contains an error.
*For information about fixing common formula problems, press help.

## Match And Return A True False Value

Sep 25, 2009

I have a master spreadsheet which shows agreeed rentals for vehicles, on the sample this is the "OCS" tab. I receive a spreadsheet which contains the actual rental charged, in my example this is the tab "Invoice" in my example the VRN are in the same order on both sheets, in reality the invoice spreadsheet is not in the same order as my OCS sheet. My task is to match the VRN field in the invoice sheet to the VRN in the OCS sheet, then look at the amounts and if they match then return "true" if they don't return "false

## Return Blank Cell Instead Of False

Jan 24, 2013

I have the following formula:

=IF(ISBLANK(H16),"",IF(H16="Car","Ca",IF(H16="Boat","Bo")))

Where I would like it to return a Blank cell if H16 is blank. However it always puts False in the cell because there is a Vlookup that is hidden H16. Is there a way I can make it return as a blank cell instead of false.

## True Or False Return For Each Group

Sep 4, 2007

I have no idea where to begin on this problem.

Group Name / Data
A / .01
A / .02
A / -.02
B / .05
B /-.01
C /.02

I need one true or false return for each group if the absolute value of the differences in any combination of a group's data is greater than or equal to .05.

Expected Result

Group A False
Group B True
Group C True

## How Do You Make The IF, False Condition Return Nothing

Feb 21, 2008

Below is the forumula I am using. The problem is, when the condition is false, it puts a "0". This then effects the conditional formatting as well as the count function at the bottom. I need it to just leave the space alone when the If statement is "False"

=IF(G3="USD",IF(COUNTIF(Data!\$R:\$AH,\$J3),VLOOKUP(\$J3,Data!\$R:\$AH,2,FALSE),""),F3)

## Return True If Value Exist - False If Doesn't

Jan 23, 2008

I have two price lists in workbook. One containing "normal" price list, other containing "action" prices.

I want to search for a product name code from column A in "normal" price list in column A of "action" list, and if it is found to show it somehow in any column in "normal" price list sheet.

## Check Four Conditions Return TRUE Or FALSE

Nov 16, 2009

I have several rows with numbers that is either 0, a balance or a text like n/a. I need a formula that return true if all are 0 or contain n/a. If there is one balance shall it be false. Any suggestion? See example:

## Return True/False If Cell Contains Formula

Apr 7, 2009

Is there a formula or VB code like the =TYPE() function that will return whether a cell contains a FORMULA? Here's the issue:

I'm writing a macro to update 10,000 sheets. Each sheet has a column that I'm updating with a new formula. Some of these formulas have been previously overwritten with a random number that would delete the formula from the cell. I have to leave the overwritten values where there is no formula, and replace the values of the formulas where they are still intact. I assume that if I can identify whether there is a formula in the cell or not, I can choose that cell to skip or update.

## Function Design Return True Or False

Jul 27, 2009

I'm trying to determine if a rangeName is defined so that I can delete it without a programming error. I've used the idea that if I try to goto a non-existant rangeName, I'll get an error. I've tried to design a function that will return true or false if the rangeName is defined on the basis of that idea. Can you take a look at the code and see where I went wrong?

## Return True If Value Exist. False If It Doesn't

Jan 23, 2008

I have two price lists in workbook. One containing "normal" price list, other containing "action" prices.

I want to search for a product name code from column A in "normal" price list in column A of "action" list, and if it is found to show it somehow in any column in "normal" price list sheet.

This way I know that there is action price attached to that product and that I have to search for the price in "action" sheet.

## Get AND Function To Return Back Results Other Than True And False

Mar 5, 2014

Here's my formula:

=AND([@[Tenure (Yrs)]]>=5,[@[2016 Sales]]>=150000)

(Where should I enter high and low? Do I need an if formula nested into it?)

I'm trying to get it to read if the customer reads both criteria which is they've been there 5 years and over 150000 sales =
High if not Low.

## Check Font Color And Return A True Or False

Is there a formula that can do this?

## IF Statement: Look At Different Cells And Return Different Values If Ture Or False

Nov 6, 2009

I have an IF statement that I need to look at different cells and return different values if ture or false, depending on what is selected in cell J2

Cell D2
if J2 = "FMB/FPI" then retrun the value of cell Y7
if J2 = "FPI/FPI" then N/A
if J2 = "FMB/OTHER" then return the value of cell Y7

Cell E2
if J2 = "FMB/FPI" then retrun the value of cell AC7
if J2 = "FPI/FPI" then then retrun the value of cell AC7
if J2 = "FMB/OTHER" then N/A

Cell F2
if J2 = "FMB/FPI" then N/A
if J2 = "FPI/FPI" then N/A
if J2 = "FMB/OTHER" then then retrun the value of cell AC7

## IF Function Return Specific Criteria For True And Then For False

Mar 5, 2008

I need to check one column to see if it is less than another one
If it is I need to have the IF function return specific criteria for true and then for false but then I also need it to rely on the results of another question from another column if the result of the first query is less than the figure in another column again I need to return specific criteria for tur and then for false
An AND function requires both to be true but when one isnt what do I write?

## Formula To Return True/False If A Row Has 6 Contiguous 0 Values

Sep 25, 2009

I have number data in columns F through AK. In column AL I want a formula that will look in columns F through AK from the left to right. Once it identifies a positive value I want the formula to identify if after that positive number there are any occurances where there are 6 0's in a row (anywhere up until column AK). The formula can return a True or False. I want to drag the formula down across many rows of data. If the entire row contains 0's, I do not want it identified as a TRUE

## Return A True/false Based On A Cell Containing A String Vs A Value

Jul 20, 2006

how return a true/false based on a cell containing a string (text) vs a value?

I have a column where most cells are blank, some contain text, and others contain dates. I would like to select and manipulate only the ones that contain dates (or values).

## Return Value To Cell Based On CheckBox TRUE/FALSE

Mar 12, 2008

I would like to create a qestionairre with checkboxes used to answer the question "Do you need____" (Check if yes). On the following workbook I would like a list of all items needed, and a list of items not needed on yet another workbook.

Is there a way to create these lists without having blanks for values that are not true? (and because Im sure there is HOW?)

## Conditional Formatting Based On True Or False Value Returned In Vlookup

Apr 21, 2014

i have a formula in a cell:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$D11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(\$D11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE))&IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$E11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(\$E11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE))

The first half of the vlookup searches for data and returns a dollar amount if true The second half of the vlookup searches for another data set and returns a dollar amount if true...

Both amounts could be the same, so I cant use a formula based on numeric value

the conditional format must determine which vlookup is returning the result

in other words I'd like to conditionally format (grey fill) if the first vlookup returns data and conditionally format (blue fill) if the second vlookup returns data

Probably have to "use a formula to determine which cells to format"

## Return True / False If Specific Criteria Met Between Worksheets In Same Workbbok

May 28, 2014

First one: The thought process is that inbound inventory data is logged on one sheet; outbound inventory data logged on another within the same workbook. When specific data from the inbound sheet (LPN column) is 'shipped' and entered on the outbound sheet, that specific data needs to be verified against the order number it was intended to ship against and if everything lines up, to have a TRUE value returned, or FALSE if not.

Second one: same type of thing - I'd like to look for the same specific criteria (LPN) between the inbound and outbound worksheets and if the same LPN is found on the outbound sheet, to return a value of "SHIPPED".

Third and fourth - same deal again except this time, would like to tie back the outbound Destination and ship date data from the outbound worksheet to the inbound worksheet.

A copy of the workbook is attached for reference with cells that require formulas highlighted in yellow on the inbound sheet and data cells from which the formulas will verify data in green on the outbound sheet.

## Return True / False If String Of Words Is Present In Another List?

Dec 5, 2013

I have two lists, one that is 99,000 lines and the other is 150. I am trying to find out where the word(s) in the list of 150 is present in the list 99,000.

1st list of 99,000 is in Sheet1 A1-A99000 and the second list is in Sheet2 B1-B150.

The caveat is that in column A there is additional words in that cell so you can not do a simple vlookup, because there may or may not be an exact match.

I have been stuck for hours and the best i can get is to use the match function but it is not working because it is not exact. Last thing i want to do is use the CTRL F key to lookup all the words.

## Data Validation: If Previous Column Is Having A Value, Then Return FALSE Else TRUE

Jun 27, 2008

I am applying data validation in my workbook. The data in ColS consist of:

ColS
(Row2) X
(Row3) Y
(Row4) Y
(Row5) Y
(Row6) X

In ColT, I am to apply data validation: i.e. If in concerned row of ColS is having "X" value, then I am to show an error message. Else, values from A2:A5 should be shown in the as list and these should be accepted in ColT.
