# Match Any Part Of The Field

Jul 6, 2009

I have a large amount of numbers I need to check for in an excel spreadsheet but the problem is they may have other 'text' and other information surrounding it. For example global sub account = '8154','8111' so if I was looking for 8154 I would want to get a hit on that particular field based off a look up of sorts.

## SUMProduct (182 Matches Part 1 Of Which 32 Match In Part 2)

Nov 18, 2008

Using the below formula. I know that I should get the result of 32 if I am dong this correctly (182 matches part 1 of which 32 match in part 2).

=SUMPRODUCT(--(\$A\$1='7. PM BDE'! \$J\$3:\$J\$366))*(--('7. PM BDE'!\$L\$3:\$L\$366=1))

## Data Transfer (populate The Green Field Individual Part # )

Oct 20, 2008

This sheet is comprised of 3 different section. The purple section is an input field. Quantities are added based on product type and date. The blue section is a breakdown of all the individual parts that go into the specific product. The green section is a breakdown of all the possible parts in the entire product range.

What I would like is to populate the green field individual part # with the appropriate sum from all the different product types based on quantities desired. I'm sure this is a confusing description but it will make more sense once you check out the sheet.

## Match Part Of Full Name

Apr 24, 2012

I am looking to get a user's email address.

On Sheet A (Foreseen Absences) I have users enter their own data.
On Sheet B (email addresses) I have users' full names and email addresses.

I have the following formula entered on Sheet A to get the user's email address: =vlookup(C173,'email addresses'!A:C,3,0)

This works fine for staff who enter their full names, but I've got a few who are entering things like: G. Thoms or Marie which results in a #NA error.

Is there an easy way to update this formula to account for these instances?

## VLOOKUP To Match Only Part Of The Text

Feb 5, 2010

Please help me get VLOOKUP to match only part of the text. I have the following situation:

In "sheet1":
___A________________B______C
1__USER3 (12346ar)___0______411 PCS
3__USER5 (456ff)______0______112 PCS
4__USER8 (1246ew)____0______515 PCS

In "sheet2":
___A_________B________C______D
1__USER8____0_________0______=VLOOKUP(A1,'SHEET1'!\$A:\$C,3,0)*5

In "sheet2" , D1 I'll get #N/A if I do not type the complete name ( USER8 (1246ew) ). Is there a way to ignore this part " (1246ew)" and match only the name of the user?

Also when matching "515 PCS" can it automatically remove the " PCS" part so I can use only the number to make calculations?

## Criteria To Match Part Of String

Dec 3, 2008

I have a worksheet that I need to filter on 8 columns. I need to do this in the form (Col A = Bob OR SAM) AND (Col B = Apple OR Pear OR Banana) AND... etc for 8 columns.

I started this thread and we reached the conclusion that I needed either a macro to list out all the possible combinations on separate lines, or a complex criteria formula.

I'm trying to put together the complex criteria, but I am further stumped by the fact that some of the columns contain multiple terms with comma delimiters, so I'm trying to match part of a string, rather than a whole string, so the usual = ISNUMBER(MATCH(Sheet1!A2,Sheet2!\$A:\$A,0)) won't work. I tried using =ISNUMBER(FIND(Sheet2!\$A:\$A,Sheet1!A2)) instead, but I think this fails because it should be an array formula. I tried normal entering and CSE entering, and neither work, so I think this is a dead end.

## INDEX MATCH Based On Part Of Strings

Feb 7, 2014

Am trying to use index match to return value in column B based on matching 2 first chars on the left in column A.

Col A Col B
POS Majalt
POS Minalt
POS Instinctive
NB Viral
NB Sierra
NB Pierce
CLM Team1
CLM Team2
OS Tr1
OS Tr2
HR Tetra
HR Pentagon
IT penelope

Cell C1 : NBA MyFormula : {=INDEX(B:B,MATCH(LEFT(C1,2),"*"&\$A:\$A&"*",0))} <<== I need to find the match of NB only in range A:A to return the related values in Col B.

Expected Result:

NB Viral
NB Sierra
NB Pierce

Other than formula stated above, I've also tried with Isnumber(search), etc but all return errors.

## Evaluate Part Of String To Match Two Conditions

Sep 24, 2006

I m trying to evaluate part of a string to determine if a number and if 6 char's in length. If Yes, return the 6 digit number, else 0

My formula below returns a #VALUE! error
It worked before I added the 6 char length condition, but sometimes return values of greater length that I do not need.

=IF(AND(ISNUMBER(VALUE(LEFT(C1809, FIND(" ",C1809)-1))),LEN(VALUE(LEFT(C1809,FIND(" ",C1809)-1)))=6),VALUE(LEFT(C1809,FIND(" ",C1809)-1)),0)

## Match Part Number Then Extract Quantity Onto A Different Sheet

Apr 3, 2014

I have 2 sheets in a file. One is given to me from our parts department containing all parts on a given truck model. The 2nd sheet is exported as a database file from inventor and imported as an update able sheet in excel.

I am needed to compare part numbers between the 2 sheets and the qty of each. So far I have it where it matches the part numbers and turns the ones I don't have in the model red. Now I'm trying to match the part numbers and pull the qty of said part from sheet 2, the imported one, and compare it to the to the qty in the 1st. All I really need to accomplish is matching the part numbers then copying the qty from sheet 2 to sheet 1 onto a new cell of the matched part number.

## Match And Index Function Not Returning The Correct Field?

Sep 29, 2012

I am currently using the Match and index functions to search for specific criteria and return specific data based on that criteria. The problem is the formula is returning the first value at the beginning of the month rather then the end of the month value that I am asking for. I have my criteria set to zero so it should be a perfect match. with the live worksheet I have several tabs for different years. I want to take the end of month balance on each of those year tabs for each month in each fiscal year and add them together. My formula only has the one month because I am unable to get it to work much less adding in all of the years information. I have the employees choosing EOM for the last transaction posted during that month and that calculates the month number in the field next to it. I was thinking I could use the match to look for a specific month in that column and return the balance adjacent to it at that point.

## Find Range Of Part Number And Bring Back Value 0 If Match Or Value Of Another Cell

Sep 4, 2013

I need a formula to check a range of parts and bring back a value of 0 if matched or the value in another cell if it doesn't match.

Part number H-200-3
Part number H-200-3-A
Part number H-200-3-B

If I enter any of the above part numbers then cell B1 returns 0 if it is a different part number then B1 would need to match cell A1.

## Delete Rows If Column Has Fewer Than X Matches To Part String Match

May 5, 2008

I have data sets on multiple worksheets within a workbook (over 70). Based on the begining of a string, I need to count all instances with that begining, and if there are fewer than 12 instances, delete the entire row.

Data set example:

In this example, I need to count each instance of rows starting with 1/* - 9/*, and delete rows as mentioned. In other data sets the string might start Gi1/*, and so on. In the following code, if I do not loop, and only test against 1 value type, and ONLY run it once, it works. As soone as I try to loop through all possibilities, or run the macro a second time, it blanks out the entire worksheet, starting at row 3.

Dim c As Long
c = Worksheets(i).Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
With Range("A3:A" & c)
If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Worksheets(i).Columns(1), "1/*") < 12 Then
. AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="1/*"
.Offset(1).Resize(.Rows.Count - 1, 1).EntireRow.Delete
.AutoFilter

I have also tried to concatenate a variable with my CountIf criteria, but that fails miserably.

## Inventory - Match Part Number To Multiple Vehicles Sharing That Same Number

Jun 3, 2013

I have a spreadsheet listing all my vehicles and their respective oil filter part number. Now, some vehicles share the same oil filter and I am trying to find a way to return the vehicle description when using the filter # as a value. In my example below, I am looking to fill the third column with the Vehicle that also shares the same oil filter number. i.e. in the Dodge row, toyota would appear in the third column and vice versa in the Toyota row.

Vehicle
Oil Filter #
Also used with
Dodge
51515
Honda
54565
Toyota
51515

I am not well versed in excel lingo which is probably why I have a hard time coming up with a method that works.

## Want To Return Value From 2nd Column Based On Match In 1 Field With First Column

Sep 23, 2009

I'm working on a project in which I have 50 states + DC listed by 2-letter abbreviation, and want to return a value in another column that will be a non-unique number (some will duplicate in the second column.)

Also need to do this same operation with first column (state) and third column, which also is comprised of non-unique numbers.

Hlookup, lookup & pivot tables seem to not be a fit for this.

## Multiple Lookup: List Of Part Numbers Based On The Product Part Code

Feb 12, 2009

I'm creating a worksheet that gives a list of part numbers based on the product part code. In most cases I can use the following.

=LOOKUP(O6,{0,1,2,3,4},{"NONE (M25)","SMP-55-001","SMP-55-004","SMP-55-008","SMP-55-014"})

so this gives a part number depending on what number is placed in O6. What I need to do know is look at 2 different cells and for each combination of numbers give a different part number. so if A1 is 2 and B1 is 3 give a certain result.

## Auto Populate Field With Date When Other Field Is Selected From Validation List

Jul 4, 2013

In the following extract, I would like to have today's date placed into Col K when an entry is made into Col J.

Entry into Col J is from a validation list of 3 options. What I desire is that when one of these options is selected ("Complete"), then I would like today's date to be written into Col K.

Currently Col K has a validation list which comprises dates from 1st of each month from July to June.

I need a fixed date as text preferably, so was thinking the VBA function "Date" on a Change Workbook Sub.

The information is currently part of a Table in Excel 2007 that has about 500 records.

## Macro To Preset Field With Text If Condition In Another Field Is True

Jun 9, 2006

I have a macro that imports a report. If the Charge Type in column A is BTOREPLX, I need to prefill the field next to it in column B with the text "REPLX", e.g. "REPLXCDROM". I've attached an example of the report.

## Change/Move Pivot Table Row Field To Column Field

Apr 23, 2008

In building my pivot table my data that I want to show in the column area is showing up as rows stacked on top of each other. In the column section I'm trying to show Total Budgeted Amount next to Total Actual Amount but on the layout it's showing the two stacked on top of each other is there some kind of hidden key that I'm missing?

## Getting Zero Formula Field When Data Field Blank / Empty

Feb 13, 2013

I have a simple formula ='info page'!b2&'info page'!b5 in places that on my sheet adds a company prefix to a item number, prefix in b2 and item in b5, we have a client that we cant use prefixes but now when I leave the field blank its giving a zero and thats not good either. I'm pretty sure an IFERROR or something will work but can get the syntax right.

## Remove First Part Of String Of Text And Keep The Second Part?

Feb 12, 2014

Is there any way to remove the first part of a string of text in a cell and save the second part?

The first part of the text string is a team code that has a variable number of numbers, capital letters and sometimes spaces. The second part of the text string is a variable number of words in a team name that all start with a capital letter and have lower case letters. Every line has a different team code and team name.

The original spreadsheet also has a column with just team code. Is there a way of using this column to "subtract" the team code from the text string to just leave the team name?

## Auto Populate A Field In One Tab By Comparing Another Field In A Different Tab?

Jan 25, 2013

I have a tab called 'Tab1' in which I have column called 'Col1' and 'Col2'.

I have another tab called 'Tab 2' with columns 'ColA' and 'ColB'. When I enter a text in Col1(Tab1) I would like that text to be compared to data in 'ColA' from Tab 2 and when match found then get the corresponding value from ColB and autopopulate it in Col2 of Tab1.

## Lookup Function: Compare Every Part In The All Parts Worksheet To See If The Part Number Exists On The Active Parts Sheet

Dec 10, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with 2 worksheets. On the first "active parts" I have a list of active part numbers and on the second "All Parts" I have all of the parts available.

I want to compare every part in the All Parts worksheet to see if the part number exists on the Active Parts sheet - if it's there, I would like it to return the value "Active" in column B in All Parts. I have a formula in column B in All Parts that seems to work for the first few, but as soon as it finds one that is active, the rest of the cells below all return "Active".

## Copy Data From One Part# On Sheet 2 To The Same Part# On Sheet 1

Feb 10, 2009

What I am trying to do is automatically move the date received and the total qty received from the Rcvg. Log sheet to the RFMs Release sheet.

The problem is:

1) I don't know what I'm doing

2) On the Rcvg. Log several part numbers that are the same with different Qtys.

3) on the Rcvg. Log the are several part numbers that are the same using different programs.

What I would like to do is combine all the same part numbers with the same program add the total Qty received and paste the date received and total Qty into the RFMs Release sheet in the proper part numbers row.

Is this possible?

Attached is a shortened copy of the spreadsheet normally there about 3000 entries.

## VLookup To Pivot Table Using Match Function - Returns Error If Can't Find Match Value

Mar 11, 2014

I am having some trouble getting a formula to work. I am building a report that pulls figures from a pivot table in another workbook. I am using a vlookup with match function to get the column index to find the relevant data I want. Where I need to add two columns together I am using sum, with the vlookup & match formulas nested in them e.g.:

=SUM(VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("FAID",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("COMM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("BPCM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C:\$AQ,MATCH("COMD",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!\$C\$6:\$AQ\$6,0),FALSE))

Where:
F13 = Employee number
Column C on the pivot 156 workbook is where the employee number is based.
The Match formula is then getting the column index from the column headings of the pivot table ie. "FAID"

This in itself works fine, as long as it finds a match in the column headings. This is where i get the error as in the above function "COMD" is not in the pivot table. However I need to keep it included as it may appear on a future pivot table. Is there a way of getting the sum function to complete even though later in the formula it can't complete the vlookup? So it will ignore it, or assume the value is zero if it can't find it? The formula probably needs to do this for all the vlookups as some headings may drop off in future pivot tables.
