I am trying to obtain price of an item using vlookup() function on the identifier 0003128 (7 digits) stored with custom format 0000000 in one worksheet. However in other worksheet, the identifier is stored as 000312 (6 digits) with text format without the last digit 8. I tried using the left(A,6) function on 0003128 but instead of returning 000312 it returns 3128 and Im unable to use the vlookup() function.

I need a formula that will bring up the Model type of a product based on its Material code. All the models I need to generate have a "root" number in them (the first 6 digits define model type). This is what I need to fill out:

I have two columns of data that I need to use SUMPRODUCT on. However, in one of the columns, there might be text after the number. The text can be several different characters. I only want to use the numbers, never the text. Also, there are usually blank cells within Column B and at the bottoms of both columns because this formula is going into a template for future worksheets that all have differing numbers of rows.

Example:

14T 16

40

20 150

97L 67

13 12

For the above example, I want the result to be 9879 (14*16 + 40*0 + 20*150 + 97*67 + 13*12 + 0*0 + 0*0 = 9879).

I've tried using the LEFT function to only get the numbers before any text, but I can't make it work with the blank cells at the bottoms of the columns.

I have some code that run on Excel 2003, and fail on Excel 2000. It happens on functions Left, Right, Mid and Trim. I've found that I must use in "Late Bindings". If exist any convertion for above functions?

I'm trying to write a macro that looks up Column A so that each time it finds "Agent" as the first word in a cell, it takes that whole cell and copies it to another sheet.

I tried creating an array function that combines the If, Vlookup, and Right() and Left() functions, but no luck. Ideally, I would want this as a VBA macro.

I have a simple VLOOKUP that I can't manage to give the right answer. The contditions must be 'FALSE' as the the stock report database has so many similar numbers in it.

I ahve got the below range.what I want is if the first chracter starts with any of the below corresponnding value to be shown.I am using left and abs for this . but when the chracter stars with "N" or "E" . i am getting and error.

What I need is to find a max value within a range and then tell me what the row value in Column A is. Usually use VLOOKUP for this but this doesn't like minus numbers.

I think it has something to do with Match and Offset but can't get it to work properly.

I have attached an example, where the max of the total is 4,435 and belongs to Steve but how do I get this to do using formulas

I have a spreadsheet with over 20,000 rows. From another spreadsheet I need to find if any of a list of 90 customers are within the first, using a simple IF and vlookup formula which comes back yes or no.

I am using: =IF(A2 = VLOOKUP(A2,ihcust!B:B,1),"YES","NO")

However, although this works when they are spelt exact in both sheets if they are not it will say no. eg. If I was Looking up "Joe's Icecreams" from the list of 90 but in the other sheet it is listed as "Joe's Icecreams (admin)" it would not recognise it and come back no.

I have made an input form which the user can input the data of person they wish to sit.

I then used Vlookup to put this data on to a smaller table.

This will make more sense on this download of the program.

What my problem is....is that i have too rooms and i needed excel too look at the cell see that they want to sit in room one then it looks at what table they want to sit at then looks at the seat they want to sit at then put them there.

generally vlookup function gives a value from the right side cell. is it is possible to display a cell from the left side. in the attached excel file i want the numbers against the cell which contains mom.....

Function sequence giving me "N/A": =VLOOKUP(LEFT(C6,5),H:I,2,FALSE)

Basically, I have numbers that each start with a unique sequence. The first 5 numbers of that sequence represent a certain cell carrier.

What I want to do is have the function look up the first 5 characters of a cell and depending on the 5 characters, I want it to return a certain value.

My idea with the vlookup was to have the lookup value be the first 5 digits and then in my table, it would take only those 5 digits and return a value I have specified in the second column.

I have a issue with VLOOKUP and LEFT STRING ETC I have a lookup table see below

AB10 Grampian AB12 Grampian AL8 Anglia West AL9 Carlton LWT B1 Central West B10 Central West B11 Central West B13 Central West B14 Central West B15 Central West

In sheet1 I have name(column A) and value(column B) In sheet2 I have name (column C) and key(column D) In sheet 3 I have results

Example ( It is just a total nonsense example, the real data is net inflow of some funds that are unique) Sheet1 House 1000 Car 1500 pet 2000 Sheet 2 house1 car1 pet2

So in the sheet 3 I want to put a formula that is capable to sum all values of the sheet2 if the name has a key of 1in the sheet2, the key columns has values of 1 or 2

I think in SQL will be something with join and group by with having clause.

The result will be 2500 in the sheet 3.

What I tried: My attempt is to do something like this code ( using array functions).

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

Code: =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 a workbook which has data from 2 different time points (6 and 12 months) and this is signified by a prefix to an ID number which is a letter (A or B) and a number:

I need to analyse data separately so I'd like to create 2 separate workbooks, once which imports all of the 6 month data (1 row per case) and one for the 12 month data.

I thought that this would be based around a VLOOKUP of the first 1 or 2 characters but I can't work out how to integrate this with an 'IF' and link it to another workbook.

In the attached sheet I am trying to use the formula below but am getting a #NA error. I have narrowed the problem down to the use of the SEARCH and LEFT functions that I am using to determine the lookup value of the VLOOKUP formula.

what I am doing wrong? If I substitute the SEARCH and LEFT function with the number "14" it works just fine. You can find examples of both in cells B29 and C29 on the rename tab.

I have a large table with data to which I want to retrieve a name to the left of a certain cell. Clear as mud so far!

I've put together a small example of what I'm after. In cell F9 is the MAX of cells F2:F7. In cell H3 I then want a formula that will find the MAX of F2:F7 and return the text five rows to the left of that cell. In this example it would be Fred.

The second part of this question is how could I get it to display if more than one person had the same total....

I'm trying to apply conditional formatting (shading) to cells that are left blank.

(Purpose: I am designing a research template for a client to complete with data and want the spreadsheet to show them where they've "missed a bit"!)

(When I go to the conditional formatting box, it asks me to specify when "cell value is"..."between/not between/equal to/not equal to" etc. But there's no option to specify when the cell is blank.)

I have a sheet that a VLOOKUP is looking at, and what I need is, if that VLOOKUP finds what it is looking for I need it to look at the cell 2 cells to the left, how is that done?
