I have 2 workbooks in Excel 2010, each contain just 1 sheet. (see attached) I need to compare on sheet 1, cell D1 and column A:A (this column will be much longer), with the data in columns C:C & A:A on sheet 2, if a corresponding match is found, the data contained in column D on the same row on sheet 2 is written to the cell with the matching data in sheet 1.

My attempt is in cell D2 on sheet1.

I want to develop on the formula I have below to return the value in the same sheet as the formula from Cell AA2 if the result of the formula below returns #N/A

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(B2,Analyst!$J:$K,2,FALSE)), VLOOKUP(AP2,Analyst!$B:$C,2,0),VLOOKUP('IE STORES AGING 06-05-2014'!B2,Analyst!J:K,2,FALSE))

I have a sheet with Customer name in the first column and next 7 columns have unique serial numbers(alphanumeric) of the systems which that customer has purchased. In another sheet, i have the unique serial number in first column and I want to search this number in the 7 columns of other sheet and return the "Customer name" to this sheet. How do I do that ?

Vlookup searches only in 1 columns, so does match index. lookup didn't work as well.

Trying to write a formula that looks for the first number in the same row, then returns the value in that column in a different row. In the example included, cell A-7 should contain the formula. Within row 7, determine the column where the first number is listed (column D in this case), then return the value listed in row 3 of that column ('C' in this case).

I've tried Lookup, Index, and Match functions, but can't seem to get the right combination.

I have a workbook containing multiple sheets for documents issued to manufacturers. I have a summary sheet which contains all of the documents and I would like to be able to look up a document number against all the sheets, and return the name (or names if multiple finds) of the sheets containing this document.

I have got close to solving this by finding another post[URL] .... but I believe this doesn't work because it searches on values rather than matching text.

I have attached a simplified example file with the sheets to search being Fab 1, Fab 2 and Fab 3, and the formula need to go into column B of the Main Sheet.

Example for Ozgrid Forum.xlsm

I am looking up the largest value across various sheets (1 to 99) with the following formula:

=LARGE('1:99'!$B$1:$B$50;$C3)

That correctly returns the largest value in range B1:B50 across sheets 1 to 99.

However now I want to know the sheet name of the value above in a seperate cell, let say in: A3.

I'm using excel 2010.

I've got two worksheets ("June" & "July"). On both worksheets, column A is comprised of ID numbers and column B contains dollar amounts. I need to compare the ID numbers in Column A on each worksheet, and if they match I want to copy the ID number and the amount to a third worksheet ("Results").

View 5 Replies View RelatedOn sheet1, I want to insert a Vlookup formula that will look in the other two sheets and will return a value (say the variable Y) if two lookup values are met and return a blank if they are not met.

Example. Sheet1. CellA1 = apple CellB1 = 2. I want to search Sheet2 and Sheet3 row by row and if Sheet2 has A and B cells which correspond(a row with "apple" in column A and "2" in column B, return the value Y. If not, return blank. Sheet2 and Sheet3 will never have duplicate values (and if they did, returning a Y would be fine).

I have to match table column name with the column name in the sheets and get the values from column 6 in sheet2 if "# of values" in sheet1 matches with "Counter" of sheets for the same column.

if ("Table Column Name sheet1"="Column Name sheet2" then

if("Counter sheet2"="# of Values sheet1" then

return "Total # of rows Sheet2" from same row.

I am using Excel 2003.

Sheet 1 ....

I need a formula to add two (2) cells (one cell in sheet 1 and the second cell in sheet 2) and return a value of the two (2) cells in sheet 3. I would like the formula to return a zero (0) value instead of #VALUE! ERROR displayed in sheet 3 if a cell in sheet 1 has zero (0) value and the second cell in sheet 2 is blank. For example: sheet 1 D2 (0) + sheet 2 D2 (blank cell) = zero (0) instead of #VALUE! ERROR

In addition, if cells B11:B12 are blank in both sheet 1 and 2, I would like the formula to display blank in sheet 3 for cell C11:C15 instead of displaying #VALUE! ERROR.

Here is the formula I have: =IF(OR(ISBLANK(Sheet1!D2),ISBLANK(Sheet2!D2)),"",Sheet1!D2+Sheet2!D2)

Note: I have attached a sample data set for better conceptualization of the problem. Sample_Formula.xls

How to return address of the column or cell I selected from Application.Inputbox, not just return the value?

[Code] ....

I need a formula to return column header if there is data in the column, any data.But I also need to return the second, third, fourth header with data too

In column A row 2, I have =IF(M8"",$M$1,IF(N8"",$N$1,IF(O8"",$O$1,IF(P8"",$P$1,IF(Q8"",$Q$1,IF(R8"",$R$1,IF(S8"",$S$1,IF(T8"",$T$1,""))))))))

This returns the row 1 header for the first instance of data in row 2 columns M thru T But in B2, I need the second header with data in the column.

I need the results in yellow (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th) from the array to it's left

1St match2nd 3rd 4thColumn MColumn NColumn OColumn PColumn QColumn R

Column MColumn PColumn QData data2Data3

Column NColumn OColumn PColumn R Data Data2 data3 data4

Would use match/index but can't increment it to the second or 3rd match

I've been searching the forums for this problem but I can't seem to find any answers. Anyway, this is the problem. See screenshot.

I want to compare A1 for the values in column B, then return the corresponding cell (column C) in column D.

e.g. D1 = 2, D2 = 1, D3 = 4, D4 = 5 and D5 = 3.

Is there a way with the following formula to tell it that if value return is = to value of cell above then find return next value?

As an example, say I have in Sheet1, cell A1, the text Sheet2. And let's say I want to return the value of cell B2 on whichever sheet the text of A1 says. So, on Sheet1, I might have this:

I am currently looking at a simple data set spanning a few years of annual average data. I want to create a front sheet to show people in what year the maximum value was reached for each site but am having trouble returning the values......

The summary sheet is headed:......

I want the formula to say - find the summary sheet max value cell in the main data sheet row 2 (for XYZ) and return the corresponding column from row 1 (year). I've got myself in a muddle trying to create array data from the index function and want something simple. There are only about 30 rows so am happy to manually select the rows in question and repeat the formula entry so it doesn't need to be fancy.

I have a file with multiple column headers and data entries (dropdowns) into the rows. I wanted to create a secondary sheet...like a pivot table..if the vertical and the horizontal are both in the two columns selected it returns a value in the table.

I would use a pivot table, but it is a data entry sheet and the pivot table does not bring up all the horizontal and vertical values unless they have already been selected in the sheet.

I have the following formula in cell B1 to return the Sheet Name as the cell value ...

View 6 Replies View RelatedI have a sheet with about 200 columns of data and 1000 rows . I'd like to split this sheet into multiple sheets based off of info in column A. Column A contains numerical categories 001, 002, 003 etc So my result would be a sheet for each numerical category with all info from previous sheet. Each category contains 5-30 items associated with that category. Any other way to split this without sorting, copying, and pasting?

View 3 Replies View RelatedI have a workbook with about 200 sheets.

Each sheet contains lots of links to the other sheets, so the user can clink the link and then go to the new sheet.

But, how do I make a "return-function"? That can return the user to the sheet that was active before the link was followed? If possible I would like this do be doable for 5-10 sheets back.

This "return-function" is gonna be used by clicking a button on a floating toolbar I have connected to the sheet.

I have an excel workbook with about 20 sheets. I need to input the same formula in to every sheet for example.

Cell A197 = Today()

Cell A198 = "Stock "&Text(A197,"dd-mm-yyyy)

Cell A199 = Issued cheques

Cell A200 = Voided cheques

Cell A201 = Received cheques

[Code] ...........

The issue is that every sheet is at different cell numbers so my the formula above is incorrect.

I have tried to record a macro for each sheet within the workbook but this fails.

I want to calculate all datas from everyday of a month in a main sheet which is like;

{=average(if(('(1)'!$C$3:$C$15=C3)*('(1)'!$V$3:$X$15>0);'(1)'!$V$3:$X$15);if(('(2)'!$C$3:$C$15=C3)*('(2)'!$V$3:$X$15>0);'(2)'!$V$3:$X$15))}

In the main sheet C3 cell will be equal to c3:c15 serie and values in the v3:x15 serie will be greater than 0. Then formula calculate average of v3:x15 values based on c3 cell like vlookup. I'm writing formulas like that everytime and want it to get datas from all days of a month from 1 to 31. I tried '(1)31)' and when named sheets like 1,2,3 '1:31' i got #value error however when i write 31 if formulas for all days i got the correct results.

Essentially, sheet b is a list of 900 people I need to mail to. Sheet a has 3000 rows of people, many of whom don't need the mailing. It has mailing addresses that we need in sheet b.

We have two worksheets, sheet a and sheet b

compare sheet b, column c (email addresses) to sheet a, column x, (email addresses).

If they match, move sheet a, columns d, e, f, g, and h to sheet b.

I have a book with 250 worksheets, with one cell of data per sheet. It is the same cell in every sheet (C7). I need to somehow aggregate all of this into one column on the first sheet, 250 rows.

View 5 Replies View RelatedBasically I have an Excel workbook with 6 different worksheets containing data. In each sheet I have two columns that are the same in each sheet, called "Category" (column F) and "amount" (column G). In one of the sheets I also have "Category" and "amount" in column H and I.

I want to write a VBA code that copies these columns (until blank row) and pastes them underneath eachother in the summary sheet.

Version: Excel 2007 WinXP

I'm basically looking for something almost like an inverse function to INDIRECT. This function would first look at a cell's formula as a text string, parse out the first valid cell reference in A1 format, and return that cell as a text string.

Detail: I have a spreadsheet with cells that point to other values. I would like to get only the row number from the first cell reference in the formula residing in a given cell. For example:

Suppose A1 has the formula =AL267. and A2 has the formula =SUM(AL94:AL235)

I would like a formula in B1 that returns the text string, "AL267" so that I would know this is the first reference.

Ideally it could be dragged down to B2 such that it returns the text string "AL94" (and not "AL235") because AL94 is the first cell reference in A2's

Currently I am copying the formulas after hitting ctl+` and pasting that text into a text editor, followed by text operations to manipulate the results into the desired values. Any solution that didn't involve going out to notepad.

I am looking at formula to return the column header, see example attached.
