# Method To Show Multiple Answers

Jan 13, 2009

I am currently maintaining a database that keeps up to date records of employees in my company and their vacations including their nationality dept. etc. for the vacation reports i have a "last day of work," "return to work date," "Actual Return to work date," and at the end a "remarks" column,

Moreover I need to report how many employees per department/Discipline are on leave ex. ( mechanical, electrical, and so on.) That I did using countifs having whoever is remarked as "na" vs. actual return date, Discipline vs. each discipline. All works fine but what i want to ask is there anyway that i can list the names of employees that are on vacation under each discipline?? Ie. if 3 are in the electrical engineering department, can i list their names? or if Today()>Actual Return to Work day (ie they are late and have not arrived yet) is there a way that it can list the names of multiple employees? rather than having to work against each name etc.

## 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

[Code] .....

## MAX Multiple Answers

May 8, 2006

here's the formula that I'm using: =INDEX(\$C\$35:\$AF\$35,MATCH(MAX(C41:AF41),C41:AF41,0 )) where \$C\$35:\$AF\$35 contains names of people & C41:AF41 contains #'s. This works great if there isn't a tie. Is there a formula to search the range, find the max # and if there are two answers display both names. ex. the max# is 3 and both joe and sam have 3. it would then show joe / sam or something like that. Is this possible? If not, then if there is a tie for the max #, to have the cell just display tie.

## Vlookup And Multiple Answers

Jun 26, 2008

I have a table whereby I Vlookup a different spreadsheet on an order number (in this instance Z011352/001). There are multiple sketch numbers associated to this Z number.

I would like to be able to input the Z number and then obviously the Vlookup pulls up the first sketch number. This works fine.

If I then input the same Z number again it pulls up the same sketch number, but I want it to look in the current table (the one i'm entering the Z number onto), see if the sketch number is already present and if it is pull up the next sketch number in the list on the separeate spreadhseet. (I hope this is clear enough)

My Vlookup code is:

=IF(C1070"",VLOOKUP(C1070,'[CrossingsSchedule.xls]Update Worksheet'!\$E\$1:\$AC\$10000,20,FALSE)," ")

## Multiple Answers And Message Box

Jan 12, 2009

I have a message box in my spreadsheet. I want it so if the user puts in multiple answers that certain message box appears, if they put in a different set of multiple answers it shows up. For example, the code below is what I am using now. It says that if the user types 5225 in C16 and 3000 in C17 then a specific msg box appears. I want it to say if the user types in 5225 or 5226 or 5227 the same msg box appears but if they type in 5665 a different msg box appears. How would I change this code? ...

## Adding Multiple Answers To IF OR Formula?

May 6, 2014

I am using the formula =IF(OR(E2="COLD"),"33%")

Which changes my cell to show the text 33% if the text cold is entered into cell E2. Now what I would like to know, is if I can add multiple catch words to give alternate pre defined percentages. Such as warm and hot to give the respective answers as 66% and 99%

## Search Criteria With Multiple Answers

Apr 9, 2012

On my spreadsheet i want to find the results from 2 criteria that i entered.

My search criteria are "Oostbos" and "AA8", and excel has to find this from another spreadsheet that i made for rostering.

OostbosN3 evelineAA8N3 evelineAA8N2 MargaAA7

The problem is that i have multiple shifts with the "AA8" criteria, but my function only finds the first one.

I used the following function:

Code:
=IF(C8="";"";INDEX('Afdeling PG PH'!\$A\$6:\$A\$28;MATCH(C8&\$A\$7;'Afdeling PG PH'!\$B\$6:\$B\$20&'Afdeling PG PH'!\$AI\$6:\$AI\$20;0)))

Also when the AA8 cel is empty that i doesn't show anything.

How the second N3 eveline, shows the 2nd result and so on.

## Creating Table From Show Detail Method

Jun 17, 2013

Recently our IBS provider change something in their data. As a result after the export I can no longer use

HTML Code:
Set PTCache = ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create( _
SourceType:=xlDatabase, _
SourceData:=Range("A1").CurrentRegion)

I had to change the SourceData to:

HTML Code:
Set PRange = WSD.Cells(1, 1).Resize(FinalRow, FinalCol)
Set PTCache = ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:= _

Since I have done this when I get to this statement

HTML Code:
Cells(FinalRow - 1, FinalColumn).ShowDetail = True

It no longer creates "Table1". Which sends a Subscript out of Range error on this statement

HTML Code:
ActiveSheet.ListObjects("Table1").Range.AutoFilter Field:=10, Criteria1:= _
">0", Operator:=xlAnd
ActiveSheet.ListObjects("Table1").Range.AutoFilter Field:=12, Criteria1:= _
"

## Error 'Method Range Of Object Global Failed' On FindNext Method

Dec 10, 2008

I'm trying to get the Find and FindNext methods to work. Column C contains serial numbers and there's a chance that a serial number might appear more than once in the column. What I'm trying to do is get Excel to find the first occurance of the serial number, find what row it's on and then see if this matches the variable 'CurRowNo' (defined earlier in the code). If it doesn't I want it to look at the other occurances of the serial number, find what row they're on and see again if it matches CurRowNo.

The variable 'EngCount is the number of occurances of the serial number (also worked out earlier in the code). I've got the code below, but I get the error 'Method Range of Object Global Failed' on the FindNext line. I have no idea what this error means or why it's happening.

## Method For Aligning Multiple Conditions With A Predetermined Outcome

Dec 8, 2009

See example attached. I am building a form where a user need to provide different criteria to receive a specific hourly rate. Conditions are:-

1. Age
2. A / B / C / D
3. Weekend (W) or Mid Week (M)

There are 4 age groups, 4 categories (A,B etc) and 2 Daily rates, therefore there are 32 different possible rates. I have considered nested if statements but I think this would be a very long formula - is this the only answer?

## Count Unique Values With Multiple Conditions Array Method

Apr 28, 2014

I need to modify the underneath Count Array Formula to count unique values based on multiple conditions. I can get the formulas to work with NUMERIC values in Column A in the N1 & N2 tabs. However, I cannot get the formula to work when column A contains TEXT values in the TX1 & TX2 tabs.

I've attached the XL file for your review of the project.

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(('TX1'!\$B\$2:\$B\$15=B2)*('TX1'!\$C\$2:\$C\$15=C2)*('TX1'!\$D\$2:\$D\$15=D2),MATCH('TX1'!\$A\$2:\$A\$15,'TX1'!\$A\$2:\$A\$15,0)),MATCH('TX1'!\$A\$2:\$A\$15,'TX1'!\$A\$2:\$A\$15,0))>0,1))

## Method Of Interleating Multiple Dropdowns Or Form Control Boxes

Apr 18, 2008

I need to establish a method of interleating multiple dropdowns or Form Control boxes. The purpose is to select one item and have a selection of multiple items associated with the selected item. Example:

## Change Colorindex Within A Range Of Multiple Cells [ Alternate Method]

Jan 8, 2010

I have tried to go around the long way to achieve this but came up with pages of pointless code .... I know there is a better way I just dont know enough about VB to do it myself ... And I know this is EASY for many :-)

--------
Cell ranges h11 to as11 are a totals row.
If the total is 0, colorindex is set to vbpatternnone, if >= 1, then colorindex is set to vbpatterngray. Easy right ? I just dont kn ow how to do FROM/IF/DO range loops...
--------

Details:
The code in worksheet_SelectionChange will contain the following:

1: From range h11 to as11, variable1 = application.interior.colorindex of the cell.

2: Check if the cell is >=1 or <=0 ....

3: If >=1 then set application.interior.colorindex = vbpatterngray. Go to #5.
' (This inserts a pattern over the original color of the cell)

4: If <=0 then set application.interior.colorindex = vbpatternNONE
ALSO set application.interior.colorindex = variable1
' (This clears the cell pattern and returns it to original color)

5. Repeat steps to clear cell pattern and restore color / or insert pattern for all cells from range H11:AS11

6. End sub

## If- Returning 2 Answers

Aug 28, 2008

I have a sheet with this:

cell a1 = numbers from 1 to 10 or nothing
cell b1 = TO or OFF depending on cell a1
cell c1 = numbers from 1 to 10 or nothing

Now I have a formula in cell b1 that detects if theres text in cell a1.
IF A1 = nothing, then b1 = off, else b1 = to.

What I want to achieve is to do 2 things on the IF.

If a1 = nothing, then c1 = nothing and b1 = off. else, b1 = to.

how can I do this?

I looked everywhere and no one speaks of double answers on IF.

## Different Lists For Different Answers

Dec 3, 2008

Cell C7 is a drop down list with 3 possibles (Consumer,Commercial, Public). Depending on which is chosen, I want Cell C10 to provide a different list of possibles (Consumer Products, Commercial Products, Public Products).

I have tried to create a custom IF statement with the list choice & sometimes it refuses & sometimes it gives me the list, but with the formula string as the drop down options.

Is this forumula possible or is it beyond excel's capability?

## Excel 2007 :: Selecting Multiple Ranges - Error 1004 / Method Failed

Jan 10, 2012

I am using Excel 2007 and the following code is generating an error 1004 (Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed) on the .Range select line. I am trying to select a bunch of noncontiguous ranges and then format them all at one time.

Code:

With Sheet1
.Range("B9:G9,B10:D11,E10:E11,F10:G11,A13:G13,A14:D20,E14:E20,F14:G20,A22:H22,A23:D24,E23:F24,
G23:H24,A26:H26,A27:D28,E27:F28,G27:H28,B30:G30,B31:C32,D31:E32,F31:G32,B34:G34,B35:B36,E35:E36,C35:D36,F35:
G36,B38,B39:C40,D39:D40,E39:F40,B42:G42,B43:D50,E43:E50,F43:G50,A52:G52,A53:C54,D53:D54,E53:G54,
G61:G62,H65:H66,A56:H56,A57:H60,A61:F62,A64:H64,A65:G66").Select
With Selection.Interior
.Pattern = xlNone
End With
End With

I've written longer lines of code, so I don't think it's a line length issue. Is there a limit to the number of ranges or cells that Excel can select at one time?

## Search And Compile Answers

Oct 25, 2007

I have a workbook filled with many tabs / sheets. Each sheet contains the same structure of information and isn't an important aspect of this question.

I've looked at this topic http://www.mrexcel.com/board2/viewtopic.php?t=16683 and I'm unable to follow it well.

Is there a way to search all the tabs for a word and if it matches to copy the entire row into the search tab / sheet? Specifically for each and every searched match.

It would save my users trying to search each tab individually and possibly miss the data they are actually looking for. Hundreds of people use this reference workbook which stores where all our documentation is stored across numerous servers. Each row is one document and its corresponding storage information.

## If Statement With 4 Diffent Answers

Sep 3, 2009

This is my current formula that im using in cell U6

=IF(L6>=500,"Sept 8 2009","Sept 1 2009")

it works fine with just 2 answer cuz if its not one answer is another

=IF(AND(\$B\$2>=0,\$B\$2>=500),"Sept 8 2009","Sept 1 2009")
found this one online but it got frustrating...i change the values to mine

so what im looking for is a if formula or similar to the following

if L6 is between 0-500 i want U6 to say Sept 1 2009
if L6 is between 501-750 i want U6 to say Sept 8 2009
if L6 is between 751-999 i want U6 to say Sept 15 2009
if L6 is between 1000-1200 i want U6 to say Sept 22 2009

i try both if formulas (stated above) both but both return one or more results...i just want one

so....Example

L6 U6
***(decimal included)
0.00 than i would get the result Sept 1 2009
253.52 than i would get the result Sept 1 2009
647.36 than i would get the result Sept 8 2009
750.01 than i would get the result Sept 15 2009
1100.00 than i would get the result Sept 22 2009

if above 1200 i would get the result sorry your amount owed is to high

formulas are preferred *but will work with macros and other options

*if using macros or vba or what have you please explain how it will work

## Calculating A Number From Answers To An Audit

Dec 18, 2008

I have created a workbook that I store data from my audits, this data is in the form of Y if compliant, N if noncompliant and N/A if not applicable. Where the fun part begins is that each question has a different risk involved. I have used a simple 1 to 5 risk scores and given scores for compliance and non compliance to each score, for example a risk 1 if compliant is 100 points, if non compliant is -100 points, all the N/As are worth 0.

I currently calculate the totals in a different sheet in the work book, but I do this kind of manually, I have calculations to work out the totals and percentages and all that, but I cannot figure out how to get the Ys and Ns to appear in this sheet as 100 or -100. All I do at the moment is bring the Y, N or N/A over with a simple =corresponding cell in sheet 1 then manually change this to the number I require.

## Tabulating Correct Answers To A Test?

Apr 24, 2012

I would like to tabulate correct answers on a test given. The data is in excel as student answer (column header), with possible response of 0 or 1. Another column of Answer Key with response of 0 or 1. There are 80 total questions (rows).

I would like to be able to create another column of "Grade" with 0 (incorrect) or 1 (correct) so that I can tabulate % correct responses. I will eventually be analyzing correct responses by question, combining results with other students at same level, etc.

I will likely do further analysis in SAS, but want to get the data set together in Excel.
