Vlookup:keep Cell Reference As Lookup Criteria

Jan 7, 2010

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.

Lookup Numbers In Sheet And Assign It's Cell Reference

Apr 5, 2006

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.

Return Cell Reference From Multi-Column Lookup

Dec 13, 2006

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?

VBA: Vlookup And Return Cell Reference

Nov 11, 2008

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:

Vlookup, Using A Cell That Contains The Table Reference

Dec 12, 2008

I have a worksheet that uses a lot of vlookups and I have to update the filenames and locations quite often. I would like to update a single cell rather than updating every single formula.

However I am getting the #VALUE error when trying this.

Simplified Example:
I have: =VLOOKUP(A3,[Table.xls]Sheet1!$A$1:$B$4,2,FALSE)
I would like to place [Table.xls]Sheet1!$A$1:$B$4 into a cell (D1) for example.

And have my vlookup function as =VLOOKUP(A3,$D$1,2,FALSE)
This way I only have to update D1 when I want to change the filename instead of a whole lot of functions.

Finding Cell Reference Using VLookup

Nov 15, 2013

I am currently having real problem using the formula below:

=INDEX(Data!C:C,MATCH(B7,Data!A:A))

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.

Vlookup On A Cell That Reference Another File

Jan 9, 2009

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?

VLOOKUP Where Reference MATCH Cell Has A Formula Behind It

Jan 11, 2014

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 have a formula that is working, but it displays "0" if there is nothing in the cell. How do i get it to display a blank cell if thre is nothing in the reference cell.

this is the formula that i am using:

=IF($C$4="", "", IF($C$4="No Match", "", (VLOOKUP($C$4,Comments!$A$2:$U$295, 5,0))))

Reference A Cell For Tab Name In VLOOKUP Table Array

May 27, 2009

Sheet 1 contains:

Item Sheet 2
ABC =vlookup(A2,'Sheet 2'!$A:$B,2,false)

Sheet 2 contains:

Item Data
ABC 2

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.

Using Formula With Cell Reference To Work In VLOOKUP Function

Jan 30, 2014

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.

VLookup (or HLookup) Cell With Reference Rather Than Actual Number

Oct 13, 2011

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.

Can I do a vlookup and keep my cell references?

SUMPRODUCT Criteria Via Cell Reference?

Apr 12, 2006

SUMIF allows one to enter a [valid] criteria text string into cell D2, say
">14000", and then reference D2 as the function criteria, e.g.,
=SUMIF(B5:B10,D2,C5:C10).

Is there a syntax that SUMPRODUCT will accept that does the same thing? Note the inclusion of a comparison operator is important.

Averageifs Using Cell Reference In Criteria

Nov 21, 2013

I'm trying to use AVERAGEIFS to take the average of the values in a column that are > a low cutoff value and < a high cutoff value.

In my sheet, the cutoff values are calculated in two cells, and I need to refer to those values in my AVERAGEIFS formula.

Here's what I've tried so far:

=AVERAGEIFS(H2:H81,H2:H81,">B10",H2:H81,"<B11")

This gives me a #DIV/0! error.

If I replace the cell references in the criteria clauses (">B10" and "<B11") I get the correct answer, so I guess it's not handling these sections correctly.

Sumproduct By Reference Cell As Criteria

Jun 5, 2007

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.

Fastest Lookup Method: Use A Key To Lookup A Value (VLookup, Index/Match, DGet, And The Rest)

Mar 26, 2008

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?

Two Page Lookup Matching Criteria Based On Cell Value

May 26, 2009

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?

Macro Used Textbox In Worksheet Rather Than Cell Reference As Criteria To Find Matches

Sep 26, 2013

This is a continuation of thread 182629 [URL] ....

The End User wanted originally to type characters into cell C1 of a worksheet that the macro searched for in another worksheet, copying across every row containing the input.

The responses gave me the following code which worked perfectly:

VB:
With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & .[c1].Value & "*"
End With
If myFind = "*" & "" & "*" Then Exit Sub

Unfortunately, the user NOW wants a Text Box instead of putting the characters into a cell.

I added a textbox (originally called 'TextBox2' but renamed "Choice") and "Dimed" CHOICE As Range.

Then tried the following code:

VB:
With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & CHOICE & "*"
End With

But it generates a "RunTime Error 91" - Object variable or With block variable not set.

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.

Lookup Value Using 2 Criteria - Criteria Moves Between Columns

I would like to return the value of the cell at which a particular product and week intersect. e.g. if "product a" is in B20 and "week 8" is in L18, I want the value of cell "L20" returned.

Product to determine Row #, Week to determine Column # for returning value.

If they interest multiple times, I would like to sum up the values intersecting.

Neither product nor week # is unique in the sheet.

Multiple Reference LOOKUP Formula?

May 6, 2014

I'm trying to cross-reference three sets of criteria to find my result; however, I can't get the VLOOKUP function to perform correctly for this need. Maybe I'm using the wrong function.

I attached a simple workbook to highlight my challenge. The over-simplified language that I included in the attachment, which highlights my problem, is as follows:

IF:
(B5=Sheet2!B4:B12) ---> This line finds the correct row to reference, on the Control sheet.
(year(C2)=Control!C3:E3) ---> This line chooses the correct annual column on the Control sheet, for the given month (e.g., use 2014 assumptions for a 2014 month).
(month(C2)=Control!E14) ---> This line counts the expense only in the month when the expense recurs (e.g., April 2014, April 2015).

THEN:
SUM(Control!C4:E12) ---> This line finds the specific number based on the criteria above.

Lookup And Reference For Category And Date?

Jul 21, 2014

I'm having serious difficulties with getting together a formula for a little bit complicated lookup.

I have 2 tables. In the first table I have categories in the first column (e.g. red, blue, green), in the second column I have dates (DD.MM.YYYY). And in the third column I would like to get the values from the second table.

In the second table I also have categories in the first column, dates in the second column und values in the third.

I would now like to get the values from the second table that coincide with the categories. And in addition the dates should also be equal to the date in the first table OR the date from the second table should be as close as possible but BEFORE the date in the first table.

Example
Table1
Red 07.08.2005 ???

Table 2
Red 18.04.2005 three
Blue 11.06.2005 one
Red 06.08.2005 four

In this example the value that should be looked up is "four".

Vlookup For Two Reference Points

i have a vlookup formula that i am using and i have two question

my first is something that i noticed while reading mrexcels book and comparing to what i was told here.
i was refered to use column()+0 instead of what mrexcel says of col(the number)-how many to get the number i want.

now my setup is like this

in a1 i have a sheet named anaheim batting totals in a2-a16 i have week1-week16. now i have my formula that i enter in b2 that uses the reference in a1 to look up in the range in sheet week1( i manually entered the range location.) i then copy paste it down to b17 with the dbl click trick and then manually go into each of those formulas and change week1 to week2 to week 3 etc. i want to be able to reference the A column title(whichever week appears) and the a1 cell in the same vlookup formula. in essence to say lookup a1 in this range ex.a1:l450 in the sheet that is in the corresponding a column,i.e. week1.16 all set the same with the same range. the rest i can figure out, but i would like to have one formula to copy to all cells of my chart.
