See attached a sample from a larger workbook I am working on. What i would like to do is in the Rec tab column G, keep the references from columns L & M as the Table Array and Column Index Number. I have =VLOOKUP(F:F,L:L,M:M,0), I would like to have =VLOOKUP(F:F,whatever tab reference is in column L as table array,whatever number is in column M as index number,0). I have included what I would like the data to look like in coulmn H.
I have a worksheet(Shed) and the range where numbers will be entered are B3:E46. In another sheet(Location) I have a in column A "Shift #", B "Shift Bus #" C "Location". what I am attempting to do is when a bus number is entered into Shed! ie.. b3=900, d15=350 etc.... Location! would lookup ie.900 in the Shed! and match it to Location! (column B) and from there provide the cell ref in column C. So I could then print Location! that would give me in Shift # order where each Bus # the shift is assigned to.
I have attached a spreadsheet with a small amount of the data I need to use. This is the distance between customers in kms. I need to be able to have excel look up the cell reference for distance between two customers though they will not always be the same customers every day in the same order.
i just want to use vlookup and hlookup to give me the row and column headings for 30 to 40 sesor at a time.... but i keep getting #n/a whenever the functions meet a table of more than one column! (reduced workbook attached)
it should surely be simple to get this data - but i've struggled to no avail. I thought that having the four separate worksheets was the problem - but i haven't had any look even when i dump the data into a single worksheet!
i basically just want excel to return the cell reference of a sensor number which exists in a table. sometimes a sensor can appear more than once, but its not very common and i could happily work around that by doing the manual search (ctrl f, find all).
any advice would be very much appreciated, i'm struggling and the number of sensors i need to test will increase in the coming months.. please help!
should i even be using vlookup and hlookup? ive tried all the other excel functions, but they don't seem to be useful?
i am trying to write some code to analyse a weightlifting movement that occurs 3 times. In particular there is a part of the macro where the user will input the start and end time of the movement using input boxes (to only select relevant data).
I want to then use a vlookup function to search for the start and end times in a range (1 column) in the time range and return the cell reference of these so i can select only these values and either create a graph or do more analysis. My code for this particular part so far looks like:
I am currently having real problem using the formula below:
What i am trying to do with this formula is return the cell address of an item that is in a different sheet.
The reference the for search is in Cell B7 which is a date, it then looks at a different sheet "Data" for this date which is in Column A. It then returns the Cell Reference of Column C of the same row.
Currently it is just returning the value of column C and not the cell reference.
I'm using a spreadsheet to assimilate data from a number of different files. Now I need to vlookup on this compiled data, but the vlookup cannot find the value because it is not looking at the value of the data in the cell, but rather the formula. How do I get vlookup to search a column by the value displayed in that cell, rather than the reference to some other file?
I am trying to create a lookup formula where the cell value to match has a formula behind it.
For example: =INDEX(AR7:AR371,MATCH(G28,AE7:AE371,0))
The trouble I'm having is that the value in G28 is derived from a formula and the Index Match formula then gives a #N/A result. If I change the value in G28 (a date) manually, so directly enter a date, the Index Match formula works ok.
Is there any way of getting the Index Match formula to work, or Vlookup would also do although that at the moment that has the same problem with G28 having a formula behind it.
I'm trying to get the vlookup to return the value "2"
Right now, I'm manually entering the tab name in the vlookup function, even though it's contained in cell B1.
The tabs are contained in the same workbook if that matters. Since this workbook is growing rather quickly, this is a painful process and doesn't feel very scalable. Since I'm using a mac, I need to do this with functions vs. macros. Does anybody know how I can reference a cell for the name of a tab in the vlookup function?
I was thinking I could maybe somehow do this with the INDIRECT function but I'm stumped.
A -> SNO B -> Customer Name C -> Product Name D -> MODEL E -> Quotation Rate I have to retrieve MODEL & Quotation Rate . and also having seperate sheet for each customers say X1 , Y1 , Z1 ( so other sheet names as X1, Y1 & Z1) In X1 sheet , I do have following columns A-> Product Name , b-> Model (as of now limited to 1 per product name) c -> Rate
Now my request is as follows Based on the Column b value in Summary sheet - i have to goto respective sheet and do vlookup for the respective product name and retrieve model and fill it in Column D. I heard i can use INDIRECT function and Vlookup in this junction .
I have problem with a spreadsheet that I am trying to create.
I have a large sheet of data which is dumped in from another program. This contains our deliveries and orders etc.
Now for planning purposes, I would like to see how much of each item I have on order.
I can use VLOOKUP, but that will only give me the amount for the first order it encounters. But not the 3rd, 4th etc. I could use SUMIF but I need the dates as well. After doing some searching I think I have found a way of doing this: I can get the first easier enough:
=VLOOKUP(D$11,'purchase order'!$A$1:$K$6000,5,FALSE), this gives the first order than the another =VLOOKUP(D11,'purchase order'!$A$1:$K$6000,11,FALSE) for its date.
For the second column to check any other orders I thought I could find the cell referance for the first SEARCH: which is
A108: ="A"&MATCH(D11,'purchase order'!A:A,0).
Is there any way of using this Reference to start a new VLOOKUP. So the Lookup Range starts at this reference?? To make things harder it is on another sheet.
I am doing a vlookup on a cell range where the value I'm trying to lookup (a date) exists, but it's not an actual number in the cell...it's a reference to another cell with that value (somewhere completely different).
So, I'm trying to vlookup(date(1/1/2011),A1:A12,2,false) to get the B column value.
A B 1/1/2011 # 2/1/2011 # ... 12/1/2011 #
However, the A column is not the actual date. It is a reference to another cell somewhere completely different that has the actual date 1/1/2011.
When I do a vlookup trying to find 1/1/2011, it can't see it there unless I overwrite the reference in A1 (for instance) with the actual date.
In reference to an earlier thread, which shg and ByTheCringe2 both were genereous in their assistance, I would like to add a wrinkle, as requested by the end-users. how to reference an earlier thread for people to reference but you can search " Sumproduct By Last (criteria) Month With Data". Edit by ByTheCringe2: Sumproduct By Last (criteria) Month With Data.
We had used the MAX function to find the most recent investments, per counselor, per bank. I now need to find the most recent investments as of a certain date (month-end perhaps). I have ideas, but I'm afraid my misperceptions/assumptions might hinder me from seeing all available options. Initially, I thought I could use a text or listbox on the summary sheet to enter a date that would link to the reference cell on the data page, and this reference cell would then be used in whichever formula I came up with.
I am trying to use VB to vlookup between to workbooks 1. Make active workbook WBK1 2. Make workbook being open WBK2 3. Copy and Paste between WBK1 and WBK2 4. Have a vlookup in WBK1 and bring in the values from WBK2 5. Close WKB2 6. Copy, Paste, and transpose values in wkb1 within wkb1
The script works fine until it reaches the vlookup step. I have used the vlookup by itself without the copy and paste code successfully but when I combine the two it provides me with the error 9. Subscript out of range.
I'm trying to use an offset from a Named Range as my source cell in a vlookup but get a -1004 Object not defined error. When Debugged the Range.Formula appears to be blank when queried. Using Record a Macro the Reference to a named range worked fine but I could not test for an offset or the use of the range reference. What can I do to use to make this work
Excel offers many ways to use a key to lookup a value (VLookup, Index/Match, DGet, and the rest). What's the fastest way to perform a lookup of a small table of, say, 30 rows of key-value pairs? Theoretically, it would be most efficient to use a branch table (also known as a jump table). See the wikipedia article for branch tables: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Branch_table. Does Excel/VBA have a way to create a branch table for such lookups?
I have an items list on page 2. On page 1 I want to create a drop down menu in C2 that references the list on page 2. Then when I choose an item, I want the additional information in cells D2 and E2 to come in automatically. The list on page 2 will be expanding daily, and when I expand it I can simply insert a new row so I correctly alphabatize it instead of constantly having to resort it.
With that said.... 1. How do you put in the drop down box that references information on a different sheet?
2. What is the best way to reference the information in my ever expanding situation: Index/Match, Vlookup, Lookup, or something I havent mentioned?
I'm looking to create a macro that will take data from an input sheet, and paste it into a cell in another worksheet, based on criteria specified in sheet1.
Specifically in the attached example, the macro would copy the data in cells C8:C10 of sheet 1, then paste them into sheet 2 based on the data specified in cell B3 i.e. it would paste them into the column headed Mar-09. I intend to make this cell a drop down, so that the user can then select the next reporting month and run the macro again to paste the data into the Apr-09 column.
