I have a workbook that if I use just the array formula for the totals it works fine and if I use data validation and vlookup and the array formula for the totals it is giving me a #Value! instead. I have tried a couple of things and did find that as long as I do not use the vlookup in the one column (column d) the array formula at the bottom works but as soon as I add the vlookup to column D I got the error.

I want to use the vlookup to get the values for items on a different page - along with the data validation and then use the array formula to get a total for multiple items in the above columns. I have attached a workbook.

I am trying to use a combination of Concatenate and IF formula to produce an email.

My input.

D4: First Name:

D5: Middle Name:

D6: Last Name:

D8: Organization:

Once all these are filled, I want the formula to produce a result like

FirstName.M.LastName@Organization.com

I have used the following formula.

[Code] .....

Problem is if there is a middle name the formula works fine, but in case where there is no middle name, it produces the following result.

FirstName..LastName@Organization.com

How do I remove the additional (.) in cases where there is no middle name.

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

I'm trying to get the following formula to give me a result with the inches " symbol on the end.

=IF(SPECS!B2="K1318","1.388",IF(SPECS!B2="K13518","1.985",".950"&""""))

So I want either 1.388" or 1.985" or .950". The current formula will only give me .950".

VBA code to use input box result in a Concatenate function.

Sub test()

Dim DistName

DistName = Application.InputBox("Enter District Name")

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=CONCATENATE(R[-2]C[1],"" Diabetes Dist"")"

End Sub

I want to replace R[-2]C[1] with the result from the input box.

=IF($A2="","",IF(O$1="","",VLOOKUP($A2,HQA01!$A$24:$AG$525,6,FALSE)))

The above statement works great, but when I try to replace the HQA01 (worksheet name) with a cell reference it doesn't work anymore. I want to point to the cell that has that name of the sheet in it rather than hardcode each sheet name.

=IF($A2="","",IF(O$1="","",VLOOKUP($A2,$Q$1&"!$A$24:$AG$525",6,FALSE)))

When I try the &, or the concatenate function it appears to put quotes around the entire result

Trying to do Vlookup with If but dont know how , I can do the concatenate function and then Vlookup as in Sheet 3 but that is too much of load to deliver in quick time specially i have pull data in dynamic and continuous update.

View 14 Replies View RelatedI would like to Vlookup an association of data in a matrix where not all information is available. e.g:

Vlookup of following data (concatenate):

A1&B1&C1&D1

A2&B2&C2&D2

A3&B3&C3&D3

but in the mapping I would have a wild card (*) in certain columns (not always the same column)

The concatenate would be for exemple:

A1&*&C1&D1

A2&B2&*&D2

*&B3&C3&*

I know it works on the other way around (Vlookup of concatenate with wilrdcards) but I can not have wildcards in my source data.

I am trying to use a Vlookup and concatenate 3 cells from Sheet B onto one cell in Sheet A. I have managed to get it to work, but the leading Zero's are being dropped. I have formatted the cells on Sheet B using custom format and "00000" but they are not coming through on Sheet A.

Here is the formula I am using

=CONCATENATE(VLOOKUP($L$1,[EFT_Exceptions_20120413.xls]EFT!$A:$BE,10,FALSE))&"-"&(VLOOKUP($L$1,

[EFT_Exceptions_20120413.xls]EFT!$A:$BE,9,FALSE))&"-"&(VLOOKUP($L$1,

[EFT_Exceptions_20120413.xls]EFT!$A:$BE,11,FALSE))

I have drop down fields using a vlookup to grab the corresponding data in a colums next it which is being concatenated into a one big cell. The problem is a set of other columns that I need to pull data from but its dependant to a previous column. In the attachment you see which ever region is selected the following column data is grabbed and the same goe for title. Now when the location is selected the info in its column should be selected that corresponds to the row that the specific title is on. example

if selected: North America>Secretary>Texas

results: A Crazy Mix->;typical,Notepad, pen,square dance

Say in L4 on form test i want to look for the value of A4 in Drill data range a2 to z1000 and retun a concatenated string of something like "sav 407 : 08-may to 11-may"

View 3 Replies View RelatedI want to Vlook a value from a cell in another workbook then before I get the formula result I would like it to concatenate the result with another cell.

I have attached an example

AlEXAMPLE.xls

what i am trying to do is use concatenate in a vlookup to search for a resource number and date, then return another column in the array.

the formula looks like:

=VLOOKUP(CONCATENATE(D7,$H$6),Roster_Allocation,7,FALSE)

but only results in NA.

if i search for the resource number only, i get the correct result.

also, the res# and date are concatenated in the table array. could this be related to the way excel is storing the dates (40241?) even though both concatenated fields look the same?

i have also tried adding a new coumn which has the res# and dates concatenated as the lookup value but still all NA.

I have a problem:

Cell A1 has this formula: =MID(B11;8;3)

with this value: 428

Cell A2 has a lookup-formula =VLOOKUP(A1;Tabell;2)

Result is #N/A

Why??

If I overwright the formula in A1 (the MID-formula) with 428 I get the result I expect.

using the VLOOKUP when it doesnt have the values it needs it returns #N/A however what i need it to return is 0 or possibly just a blank cell.... can this be done without the need for code?

View 2 Replies View RelatedBeen working on this problem for a while, I need to have a vlookup (or other function) return locations based off of a concatenate (for unique identifiers). Only issue is that the concatenate formula creates doubles which returns the same location for each vlookup. I have attached an example file.

View 2 Replies View RelatedThis is the scenario----------------------------

Column A in sheet1

1101

1201

1301

1401

1501

1601

Column A Column B In sheet2

1101 | 14211

1101 | 14541

1101 | 14857....................

Below is the data I have.

Say I need to get values from Column C. VLOOKUP'ed values return the first value, but i need it to move on to the next result if the first one = 0.

so I will get

123 - not 0, but 0.22

234 - 0.1

345 - 0.....

If ur using VLookup, can u tell it to skip the first result and find the second result and return it?

View 5 Replies View RelatedThe 3 vlookup will be in a single cell for concatenation like :

=vlookup1&"-"&vlookup2&"-"&vlookup3

Problem the are 3 vlookups where it will return names (with format -> Fname, Given Name Middle) and probably blank returns.

I have problem with the replace since there are also spaces between the Fname,Gname and Mname sample name with spaces.

I have a formula that I'm trying to utilize VLookup to determine a specific bonus. The issue I'm having is when looking for the closes match, it is returning the value below where it should because it's rounding down. For example, the string I have reads:

=VLOOKUP(S5,'Rep Daily'!A1:B61,2,TRUE)

The value it's defining is 17.7485, so it's returning the bonus for 17.5 instead of 17.75. Even when I use the =Roundup function, it's showing 17.75 in the cell but the actual value of the cell is 17.7485 so VLookup is returning the lower of the two values.

I have put a VLOOKUP in place for a range of cells. Where the referenced cell has no entry it puts #N/A in the sheet. This is causing me further problems, is there a way to get all entries which equal this to leave the cell blank?

View 8 Replies View RelatedHopefully you will be able to help again. Is it possible to do a vlookup that references data on other tabs within the worksheet so that the result of the formula is in the cell not the formula.

So if my vlookup was =vlookup(a2,$a$1:$b$12,3,0) and the result was john smith i want just john smith in the cell. I know about copy and paste values but i was looking for a more automatic way. One that doesn't need intervention.

how to return a blank or null value when the vlookup formula would normally return a #N/A? I am using the False range_lookup argument to get an exact match.

View 2 Replies View RelatedCode: =VLOOKUP((LEFT(C4,6)),'Data from 7500'!$B$16:$G$195,6,TRUE)

And it works great, except that the data returned is off by one row. For example, the correct value for the sample name in B107 is located in G107, but the formula returns the value in cell G106. I've tried changing the TRUE to FALSE and that returns #N/A.

I have used in Index & Match formula in column G as follows :

=IF(ISNA(INDEX(R:R,MATCH(E13,S:S,0))),"",(INDEX(R:R,MATCH(E13,S:S,0))))

I have used a lookup table to calculate the value in column H as follows, but cannot get it to work

=IF(ISERR(VLOOKUP($E62,$M$3:$O$850,3))=1," ",VLOOKUP($E62,$M$3:$O$850,3))

My VLOOKUP formula is displaying in the cell instead of the result. The formula is VLOOKUP(A1, income_codes, 2, FALSE) and in the formula editor the result (00017) is calculated correctly.

However the cell displays =VLOOKUP(A1, income_codes, 2, FALSE) instead of the answer 00017.

My view options are not set to display formulas. The codes are formatted as text in the range income_codes as they start with zeros.

After using a vlookup to find a value in a cell I want it to return the cell belows information.
