# Get Cell Reference As VLookup Result Of Different Sheet?

Dec 12, 2012
In workbook 1, I have summary sheet with columns

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 .

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

I need to use the result of a simple calculation in one cell on Sheet1 (=A1+2) as the row in a cell reference on a different sheet. eg =Sheet2!A"n" where "n" is the result of formula.

I have the following formula in cell L51 of all sheets calculating the volume depending on the monthly index that is chosen from the drop down menu in a particular sheet. =If(MIndex=0, SUM(D33:L50),If(MIndex=1,SUM(D34:L50),If(MIndex=2,SUM(D35:L50), 0))). I am getting the following message and I do not understand what it is about.

Microsoft Office Excel cannot calculate a formula. Cell references in the formula refer to the formula's result, creating a circular reference. Try one of the following

I am trying to use a VLOOKUP on a table of manufacturing die cuts of certain sizes.

A formula tells me a number close to the die that is available. The rule is to use the next larger size die cut for the job.

An example of die sizes are:

Die Sizes

108.0

112.7

114.3

117.5

My formula gives me 114.22, therefore, I should use the 114.3 die.

However, the VLOOKUP says 112.7, not the answer I want.

How can I adjust this VLOOKUP to give me the next size down? I am guessing a IF, but I am not the best at writing IF statements.

I am using VLOOKUP to find the size of a cam to be installed in a tablet press, based on the product code it will be running.

The array has two columns: (W) Product Code, (X) Cam Size.

Array: W4:X437

The user selects the Product Code from a drop-down list in cell E5.

The resulting Cam Size is displayed in cell E7. The VLOOKUP works fine.

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(E5,W4:X437,2,FALSE),"")

Occasionally, the cam size has to be updated. The user would then select a new cam size from a drop-down list in cell E9.

I have a "Update Cam Size" command button.

What I need to happen is for the value in E9 to replace the value in the array that is displayed in E7. Obviously, I have to know the location of the cell in the array, but I can't figure that part out. I've tried ADDRESS and MATCH functions, but it comes back with "#N/A" Value not available error.

=ADDRESS(MATCH(E7,W4:X437,0),2)

what I would like to do is view a cell result in my userform with out deleting my formula

It works perfect from the excel side but I just cant get it right from the user form side

Ok so cell D6 contains a vlookup formula. I want the vlookup result to appear in my userform. I can get this to work but it overrides the vlookup formula with the result. This means that when I go to use it again it just shows the same result.This is what I have:

Cell D8 has a Combobox with a list of names to select from

this is the formula in cell D6 =VLOOKUP(D8,B107:I754,2,FALSE) This retrieves the selected customers account number from the combobox. I need my userform to display the account number with out erasing the formulas because I will need to search for more account numbers after.

I have named the textbox in my userform Customeraccountb

In simple terms. Assume the formula in Cell F5 is =A1. I now want to reference F5 and use the =A1 ref, rather than the result of =A1. e.g. I want F6 to give me the result of A2. So want to refer to F5, add 1 to it (or refer to the cell below it).

I know there's the easy way of copying relative formulas, but my actual problem is a little more complicated. I'm using an IF formula in F5, along the lines of =IF(F4="Tomatoes",G1,A1) Therefore the result if F4 doesn't = "Tomatoes" is A1.

I now want to put a formula in F6 that gives me the contents of A2, specifically by reading the resulting reference from F5, and looking at the cell below it (A2).

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 have a sheet which uses a vlookup to find the data on a large sheet. normally to get the cell reference of the data i would use cell("address",......

However this appears not to work with a vlookup.

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.

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.

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 am trying to use vlookup so that when each site name is selected the relevant comments for that site are displayed.

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))))

The site name appears in C4, and is selected from another sheet in the workbook.

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.

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.

How can I do the following....if for example I have the following vlookup;

Code:

=vlookup(A12, 'sheet 2 $A$2:$ID50$, 3, false

How can I change the column index i.e. the 3, to reference to a cell.

Code:

=vlookup(A12, 'sheet 2 $A$2:$ID50$, H1, false

The above example doesn't work but I'm sure something can be done using TEXT or VALUE

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.

Can I do a vlookup and keep my cell references?

If I have a cell that has as its contents as sheet name, is there anyway I can use the cell's address to reference that sheet?

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 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 have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.

e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?

In Sheet2 I have a list of cell addresses showing values such as D5, D32, D59, D221, D869 stored in cells AB7:AB16. In Sheet1 the "D" column holds dates. I want to return the corresponding date for each D# cell into Sheet2 in column AC7:AC16. I'm unaware of the proper syntax for this. I though it would look something like:

='Sheet1'!('Sheet2'!(AB7))

I am setting up a spreadsheet that we can use with EditGrid online so we can post it in Forums. These will be used to track contracts for NFL players. I have used multiple formulas to do this. The problem is that I need to do this for 32 teams over 10 years. So what I want to do is be able to have a master sheet and then just have the other 32 sheets pull those formulas from the master but use the info on the individual teams sheet. I'll give you some basics.

The first year starts out where you type in a players position, name, contract length and his rating. here is an example of one of my formulas. The very basic first one

How can this be done?

E.g. say I want to create a list of cells each referencing to the first, second, third sheet, and so on.

Say, on one sheet cell A1 references to the second sheet's A1, cell A2 references to the third sheet's A1, and so on.

Ideally I'd love to be able to write something like

=Worksheet(1)!A1

=Worksheet(2)!A1

=Worksheet(3)!A1

and so on.

A1 = "Exhibit A"

and have a formula as such?

=IF($A4"",(IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH($D$2,' Exhibit A'!38:38,0)),"x","")),"")

where the sheetname in bold is pulled in by a reference to cell A1?
