Vlookup On Dynamic Range?

Aug 20, 2014

I'm trying to find a way to perform Vlookups against a dynamic range of data, where the number of rows/values in Col B is always subject to change.

The way that the workbook is structured is as follows:

Sheet1: Except for Cols A & B, this is a blank sheet. This is the sheet in which the vlookup values will need to fall into based on the number found in its' Column B

Sheet2: The sheet that contains the data that will be passed into Sheet1 via vlookup, and all of its Columns contain data.

So, basically, Sheet1 is a shell that needs to be filled with data copied over from Sheet2 based on vlookups against Col B.

The vlookups will need to be shifted back 1 column.

And examples of how the Vlookups need to work is:The value in Sheet2 [Col E], needs to get passed into Sheet1 [Col D]Along those lines:

The value in Sheet2 [Col F], needs to get passed into Sheet1 [Col E]

The value in Sheet2 [Col G], needs to get passed into Sheet1 [Col F]so on and so forth

So basically, all of the values passed into Sheet1 from Sheet2 need to be shifted back by 1 column until we reach the last Col (Col M in this file).


The value in Sheet2 [Col M], needs to get passed into Sheet1 [Col L]

The number of columns will remain fixed, but again the number rows will vary week to week in both of the two sheets, so I would need to have a way of creating a Vlookup through VBA that accounts for the dynamic range in Col B.

VBA - VLOOKUP In Dynamic Range

Oct 14, 2011

The workbook I'm working on has several sheets: Totals, Monday, Tuesday, etc set into a SheetArray.

The problem is that I'm trying to perform a VLOOKUP on data in worksheet "Monday" against column A in worksheet "Totals". However, the size of column A will change as the codes iterates through the days. Therefore, I need the range of column A in the Totals worksheet to be dynamic.


'Find any new projects in the daily data that are not in the Totals.
DayProjCount = Range(Sheets(SheetArray(A)).Range("AA2"), Sheets(SheetArray(A)).Range("AA2").End(xlDown)).Cells.Count
ProjCell = 2
With Worksheets("Totals")


During this process, the code should only find 1 error in ValidProject. But, each are throwing errors. I think it's because the VLOOKUP isn't searching through the correct range, but I don't know how to check it.

Dynamic Range In VLookup

Apr 10, 2012

I have a workbook with 100 worksheets. Each worksheet is setup the same way with dates down column A, and data in column B. In another sheet, I need to run a vlookup on the dates and data, but I need it to adjust for whatever spreadsheet name I give it. Is there any way to have the vlookup table array change as I change the worksheet it should reference?

VBA - How To Make Range Dynamic In VLookup

Sep 30, 2013

I have this code which looks information in a table. The problem is that the table is getting every time bigger.

Here the code:


With Worksheets("Sheet10").Cells(9, 3).Resize(, LastColumnf - 2)
.Formula = "=IFERROR(CONCATENATE(VLOOKUP(Sheet10!C2,Sheet12!$A$10:$C$550,3,FALSE),""."",
.Value = .Value
End With

How can I write $A$10:LastNewRow... Another problem rises here, LastNewRow might end up being the oldLastNewRow, i think. But maybe since it is getting bigger, there is no problem, I don't know.

Instead of having a static reference like $C$550 I would like to have a dynamic one.

Dynamic Range For Table_array In A VLOOKUP.

Oct 10, 2005

I'm looking up a value from another workbook. Simple enough in itself, but
heres the thing.

I'd like to write a dynamic vlookup that checks the value of another cell to
find the table array for it to look up from.

Basically I have a table of data, the column headers are dates. I have a
report that is run daily that I need to look up from. Rather than implicitly
referencing each sheet I'd like to tell the vlookup to check the date in the
column header and use that for the sheet. The range inside of the sheets is
always the same.

Dynamic Name Range Incorporating VLOOKUP

Aug 27, 2009

I'm trying to create a dynamic Named Range using VLOOKUP in place of a sheet name. (Using Excel 2003 & Win XP Pro SP2).

To illustrate:-

Employees.xls contains employee's details on separate sheets for each department, e.g. Production, Admin, Sales, Personnel, etc. Each sheet is 12 cols. and 1 header row. Sheet 1 of this book contains a 2-column Master List of all employees and their departments. MyBook.xls has an employee's name in A1.

I can get his department by using =VLOOKUP(A1,MasterList,2,FALSE) and what I want to do is incorporate that into the following in place of 'Admin' so that the range will refer to the correct department for whoever's name is in A1.

VB Define Dynamic Ranges, Use The Range For Find Or Vlookup

Jul 9, 2008

I have an worksheet that I import a csv into, each day a new csv is added to the bottom of the previous csv data. I have some code that extracts the date and month # from the cell and places them in helper columns. The code find the last used cell in the helper column and the imported data column to find the first and last row of the new day.

This part works fine. However, I assigned a variable name to the first and last variables and would like to uses these row number to define a range in order to use the range for a vlookup or find operation. This is where I get stuck. I want to use column x and row (variable from first bit of code) to column y and row (variable from first bit of code). Then use a vlookup/find whatever works to find the text I need and get the data. Tips on looping the code would be welcome as well.

I have searched for answers to the problem, on the board and web, but have not found a solution that works for me. (at least that I could get to work!!)

Below is the code as I have it

Public Sub Enter_Date()

Dim DateA As Date
Dim DateB As Date
Dim Cnt As Integer
Dim End_of, Beg_of As Integer
Dim Count As Integer
Dim NumtoFill As Integer

VLOOKUP With INDIRECT (become Dynamic As The Table Array Part Of The Vlookup Will Change)

Aug 18, 2009

I have a Vlookup which I want to modify so that it can become dynamic as the table array part of the vlookup will change.

So the basic vlookup is as follows:
but the data I am looking for wont always be in the range M60:P73.

So I tried to make it dynamic by doing the following:
The idea being that U1 and V1 would be numbers that can change so in this case U1 would equal 60 and V1 would equal 73

This vlookup is giving me #N/A and no matter how I modify it I cannot get it to work.

"Dynamic Named Range" In VLOOKUP

Jan 4, 2009

=+IF(G6=0.25, VLOOKUP(F6,Maple,2), IF(G6=0.375,VLOOKUP(F6,Maple,3),"-"))

This function determines where on the "Maple" named range to get the data based on the thickness of the material (.25 or .375 from G6 dropdown). What I'm wondering is if VLOOKUP's 2nd operator (in this case "Maple") can be filled in dynamically based on another drop-down menu. I have 8 different species and I'd like to avoid a lengthy IF/THEN statement. OR, is there a completely different function that I should be looking at here?

First dynamic range: called "Milestones" at A11
Second dynamic range: called "Activities" at A25

VLookup For Dynamic Ranges

Oct 28, 2008

I want to create dependent lists using data validation. The lists need to be created from ranges that will be growing as users add more data. I think the best way to create the list is a VLOOKUP. However, I am not sure how to use the VLOOKUP when the range is changing.

I have attached an example. I have a list on sheet "Vlookup" called "FRUIT" with "apple", "orange", "banana". Then to make the depedent lists I have created three other lists called: "APPLE", "ORANGE", "BANANA". I want to pull the COST from sheet "VALUES" into the lists "APPLE", "ORANGE", "BANANA". Users will be adding costs next to the FRUIT they purchase.

Dynamic Vlookup Based On Selections

Jun 29, 2014

sample.xlsmI am trying to create a sheet with dynamic lookup based on selections.

So if a user selects planning or costing and then the state then click on search then it cell B13 it should lookup from data sheet and give full state name and in cell C13 give the document name and in D13 give the print rule.

If in the data sheet the document type says planning/costing and there is no corresponding state to that document then it should be incliuded in all searches.

When I click clear then it resets the search. So if i select Planning and state as AL then the display should be
Alabama ABC DEF

A12 AA1 (aligned to previous row)
C12 AA3 (aligned to previous row)
E12 AA5 (aligned to previous row)

Also is it a better option to do planning and costing as a radio button or drop down list. Is there a way in the state selections to show the drop down list arrow at all times. Currently when the cell is not selected it disappears.

VLookup With Dynamic Column And Row Header Locations

Jan 29, 2014

I'm trying to pull information in one spreadsheet (SS1) from another spreadsheet (SS2). I've found that the following works, except when SS2 is closed. Is there a way to do the following formula so that it will work even if SS2 is closed?

=VLOOKUP(A19,A:H,MATCH("Column Header",OFFSET(1:1,MATCH("Row Header",A:A,0)-1,0),FALSE),FALSE)

Link A19 is the lookup value
"Column Header" is the column header we want to find
"Row Header" is the unique row header for the headers of the table

The Column Header could appear anywhere in Column A to H, and the Row Header can appear on any row in the spreadsheet!

Vlookup And Dynamic Named Ranges = #ref Error

Apr 3, 2008

I am trying to merge data from two worksheets onto a 3rd for a mail merge. The COLLECTIONS sheet contains the acct #, name and amount owed. The ADDRESSES sheet contains the acct #, name and all of the address information. The 3rd sheet is the MERGE sheet that I'm using as the reference point for my word document and the mail merge. Upon reflection the MERGE sheet is probably not necessary, but made sense to have it when I started out.

Never the less...
On the ADDRESSES sheet I am trying to name a dynamic range "AddressList" (I'm trying to go dynamic because the list of addresses will change from month to month). I am using the following formula in the refers to field when I name the range:


I think this is what is giving me my problem, because the named range does not show up in the list when I try to go to the named range.

Just in case that is not the problem, the #Ref is showing up when on the MERGE sheet I type a vlookup formula referencing the acct # on the ADDRESSES sheet. That formula looks like this:


which seems simple enough. Before trying to make the named range dynamic the formula worked fine, which is why I'm thinking the named range is what's giving me the problems.

Convert Dynamic Range To Static Named Range

Sep 13, 2007

My searches have not produced anything that I could apply to this situation.

I'm trying to write VBA that would:

1. Search a Workbook for Dynamic Ranges.

2. When a Dynamic Range is found the code would:

A. Determine the current coordinates for the range.
B. Change the "Refers To" value From "=OFFSET...." To "=Worksheet_Name $Column$Row:$Column$Row"

3. Save Changes.

4. Close File.

My apologies but I have very little experience in writing VBA. I understand about variables, arguments, and IF/THEN but just enough to use functions within Excel.

Set Range Variable To Growing Dynamic Range

I have been working on part of the code for my spreadsheet and it works fine in the spreadsheet “Databaseform” however when I copied the code to my master spreadsheet “Paul_PartLocDBCombo” it does not work, I get the error:

Method ‘ range’ of object ‘_worksheet’ failed
The code is then highlighted in yellow, the code is:
Set rng = wksPartsData.Range("a1", Range("a65536").End(xlUp))

Meaning this part is incorrect but I don’t know why? To work it: go to Databaseform and press start. Enter 7mm in the product field and press find all. It will then return all the matching results in the userform. Its this I want to try and achieve on the other spreadsheet when the button find label is pressed.

The reason is to anable FREEZING of the first row (display the totals all the time even when scrolling down) as the list will get very long after a while.

I can't dynamically name the numbers to be summed because the dynamic named range will include the sum number and create a circular reference. For example:


the bottom row (14) is the sum. Next week, my numbers are


I have a macro that will automatically put the sum formula in the correct row and column, but can't quite figure out the formula.
