# Vlookup To Return One Value From Multiple Columns?

Sep 21, 2013

I have two separate worksheets, and I am trying to create a Vlookup or Index and Match formula. Here is the example:

Sheet 1
Cell A1= Employee ID: 123-D.

Sheet2
Vlookup A1 from Sheet 1, and match the first five characters to Column A, Column I and Column P. If a match, return name (e.g. John Doe) in Sheet 1, cell B1.

## Vlookup From Multiple Columns With Only One Return

Dec 19, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with twenty columns. Column A has an item number (say "Clutch"), and the remainder of the columns have values. However, there only be one column in the range B:T which will have a value on the same row as "Clutch" (say "Black" in column "N").

How I can I return "Black" using a vlookup or should I be using something else?

## VLOOKUP Return All Columns In The Range

Aug 31, 2007

I wanted to lookup value A5, and return all columns in the range A1:D5, I could use the formula =vlookup(A5,\$A\$1:\$D\$5,2,false) and copy this formula 3 times changing the third parameter 2, to 3 , 4 and 5. i.e 4 VLOOKUP formulas.

I could, instead, convert the VLOOKUP into an array and enter it CSE i.e =vlookup(A5,\$A\$1:\$D\$5,{2,3,4,5},false). This returns the right answer but "appears" to have only used 1 VLOOKUP.

What if this was extended to say 26 columns so instead of "hard coding" the array constants I used =vlookup(A5,\$A\$1:\$D\$5,COLUMN(B:AA),false). Is this better than 26 indivisual VLOOKUP's in term of speed?

## VLOOKUP To Return Multiple Values?

Jun 27, 2014

I have a list of countries in column A, there are duplicates in this list. In column B are numbers corresponding to the country.

A B
IRELAND 1221
GERMANY 2341
USA 3443
IRELAND 2231

Ireland could be in the list and have up to 20 different values beside it in column B

On a separate sheet i have a drop down list of all the countries. I am looking for a vlookup or something similar to return a list of all the numbers beside IRELAND when Ireland is selected in the drop down list.

I had been trying a vlookup but this looks at the list and stops at the first "IRELAND" it finds and just returns the value beside the first "IRELAND"

## Use A VLookup To Return Multiple Values

Apr 7, 2009

## VLOOKUP To Return Multiple Values

Jun 3, 2008

I'm having trouble getting my payroll data to combine. I've been using VLOOKUP to look up employees by their Personel Number (Column A) and return their name (column B), Cost Center (Column C), the Fund that they are paid from (Column D) and the Amount they are paid (Column E). The problem is that some employees are being paid out of 2 or more funds and VLOOKUP is only returning the fund that appears first, leaving out the other portion of their pay and thus making my grand total quite far off. How can I get Excel to return all the entries for a particular Personel Number? There are more than 16000 employees, so this is no small spreadsheet.

## VLookup Return Multiple Values?

Dec 19, 2011

I've been trying to research vlookup to see how I can use it or something like it to return multiple value for a dynamic chart I'm trying to build. I've found several paged to give examples but I can not seem to figure it out with my sheet b/c the examples differ from mine I have a financial spreadsheet with several categories and I want to make a chart for all my utilities. i need a array formula (i think) that will search for (example) My salary, my wife's salary and other income and extract those values in the next column (Credit (+)) to build a chart... (i will use this same concept to make other charts as well.) The Categories column is F and the values will need to be extracted for the chart are in G. doesnt matter where they are extracted to but for the sake of being speific ill say starting P50.

(first row below headings is row 5)
CATEGORYCREDIT (+)DEBIT (-)Salary - Byron\$ 2,571.11 Utility - Electric\$ (154.25)Salary - Felicia\$ 1,120.20 Utility - Gas \$ (79.47)Mortgage\$ (852.01)Salary - Byron\$ 2,499.53 Other Income\$ 150.00

## VLookup - Single Value Lookup Returning Multiple Records Into Multiple Columns

Feb 7, 2014

Certification and Training tracking.xlsx

I want to create a certification only list on a separate tab of training that has been completed where a certification has been issued (as indicated by a "Y" in the "Certification?" column on the training tracking tab) and then populate from some of the fields vs. all of the fields.

What I have now, only pulls the first occurence, not all occurences. I saw that I could have identified the multiple columns that needed to be populated, but it didn't work either, so I'm fine putting a separate vlookup in each column.

## Return A Count From Multiple Columns - Each Column Has Multiple Answers

Sep 28, 2012

Want a single count of multiple columns based on the columns selected value. Data is in text format.

Have tried multiple COUNTIF statements and have tried using pivot table (Excel 2010) both only give me total counts for all. I think I need an OR statement somewhere, but not sure where?

In other words, if a single record has an "any" in the any fields or a "yes" in the yes fields, I want to to count that as one record.

Sample data:

Pegnancy Smoke
Pregnancy Alcohol
Pregnancy Marijuana
Pregnancy Powder
Stress Cigarettes
Stress Marijuana
Stress Alcohol
Stress Medication

## Vlookup Formula To Return Multiple Values?

Jun 23, 2014

I'm trying to use vlookup to return multiple values for the same unique identifier. I've read a couple of examples within the forums, but I haven't been able to find anything I understand. I have employee ID's and these ID's have specific access associated with their ID's and each access is listed within a different row. Within a new spreadsheet I removed all duplicates of the employee ID so now I no longer have a one to one match between spreadsheets, so I would like to create a vlookup that will list all access associated with each employee ID. I have attached a sample of the data sheet I am working with.

## Vlookup To Return Multiple Values For Graphing

Mar 7, 2014

I am attempting to graph data based on work down in specific work centers to track efficiency. I can download all items that were finished for a certain time frame (yesterday, last month, last year, etc.), but the data only shows up as the item, quantity, and the date of closure. I take that info and copy and paste it to the close out tab of the other work book, where it references another sheet to pull in the time required to complete the task, and the work center that did the work. My problem is when an item has multiple work centers on the same item and then taking that info into a pivot table to graph. This can be done manually, but I was hoping I could create a way to only have to copy and paste the data and have it return the work done.

I have included a shortened version of what I am trying to do, eventually there will be 25000+ items on the data tab, but if I can get this to work, then i assume I can extrapolate.

## VLookup To Return Multiple Values In Same Cell?

Traditionally the vookup will return the first value it can match. I can return multiple values on different lines using an array formula but this is not useful.

In the example below I have table array A1:B8. Lookup criteria in cell A11 and want to return MULTIPLE values from column B in cell B11.

I would prefer to not use VBA if possible

## How To Get VLOOKUP To Return Multiple Instances Of Data

Jun 23, 2009

Sheet 1 has one column

Customer Number (unique)
e.g.

111
222

Sheet 2 has two columns

Customer Number

e.g.

Ideally, I would like;

Is there a function that can achieve this?

If not, can the multiple occurrences be returned in one cell, separated by;?

## Vlookup Data And Return Results On Multiple Entries

Feb 16, 2009

So i have a spreadsheet that has a list of members and how many events they have attended. That is fine because i achieved this by doing a countif function on their account number. The spreadsheet has to sheets Events Attended TOTAl and List. In the list it has their name account number and what event they attended and what date. What i need is to have a function that will lookup their account number and return what event they attended but they might have been to 4 different events.

I have a total of 5 columns dedicated to Event attended so we can tell it to lookup first event and return result then have an if function in the next column to lookup event and if its returned in previous column move onto the next event attended.

## VLookup Return Multiple Hits From Same Column Of Data

Jul 14, 2009

I am running a Vlookup on a large set of ID#'s that exist accross multiple servers.

The data is structured in (2) columns how you see below , and you will notice that the same ID# can show up on multiple servers.

However, the VLOOKUP is only returning the first match it finds.

Assuming that I want to keep the data structured as is, how do I make the vlookup return all matches?

ID# LOCATION
