I have three named ranges that I need to do lookups for First I need the formula to do a look up at the HUMANALOOKUP range and then if a value is not found go to LABLOOKUP and then if not found go to CHCSLOOKUP and if not found return a blank. the column layout of each worksheet is the same so the column index number same throughout the formula.

## Nested IFs And VLOOKUPs

Feb 6, 2009

I have a simple Staff Rote which is fed by data on Time Sheet. Currently it is working ok with two definitions;

T : Time
B: Break

If I introduce a 3rd and 4th definition like;
A: Leave
X:non working day
formule will get even more complicated.

Is there a way of simpifying this with a code and introducing the new definitions.

## Nested If & Vlookups

Jul 6, 2006

I am having trouble using an if statement with a vlookup.

The first calculation i am trying to do is calculate the cost of storage for the product, each product (3 of them) has it's own charging matrix which i have turned into a table on another sheet and therefore want to use the vlookup to return the correct values (meaning that i can change the underlying table and not have to change the formula each time a price change occurs), the sheet calculates the dwell time between entering and leaving, if dwell time is less than 7 days the charge is the number of days * products <7 days rate, if it is >7days then the charge is 7 days at the products lower rate and then the balance at the higher rate. I have a formula that is a longwinded way of calculating it for one size only but would like to add vloopup so that dependent on the units size the storage is calculated.

I have attached a sheet as an example, you will see the data table is quite large and as we consume extra services i plan to use a tick box to indicate use and then add this to a running subtotal again through an if and vlookup.

## Nested IF Statements Using VLOOKUPs

Dec 13, 2013

I'm trying to nest the following:

=IF(VLOOKUP(\$F6,'Dept location'!\$A:\$B,2,FALSE)>0,VLOOKUP(\$F6,'Dept location'!\$A:\$B,2,FALSE),FALSE)

=IF(VLOOKUP(\$H6,'Project location'!\$C:\$K,9,FALSE)>0,VLOOKUP(\$H6,'Project location'!\$C:\$K,9,FALSE),FALSE)

=IF(VLOOKUP(\$V6,'Dept location'!\$A:\$B,2,FALSE)>0,VLOOKUP(\$V6,'Dept location'!\$A:\$B,2,FALSE),FALSE)

To start with, not sure I have the ">0" part correct in the above IF statements. That expression is meant to be asking it: Is the VLOOKUP finding valid data (result #N/A)?

Next, comes the nesting part. If the VLOOKUP isn't finding valid data (result = #N/A), then I want it to move on to the next IF statement.

I have 3 different columns I want it to look at; hence, the 3 IF statements. In the end, if none of the three IF statements results in any valid data, I want it to give the result "Research".

## Nested If Statement With 2 Possible Outcomes And 2 Vlookups?

Oct 18, 2013

I have an If statement I am trying to get to work but not sure of the flow. Each part works seperately but not together. What I need is if column E is blank leave blank, if cell DI2 is Yes then use columns DJ to DP for the lookup if DI2 is No than use columns O to U for the lookup. The first 2 lines are the individual formulas that work independently. The 3rd was my last attempt at combining them.

=IF(\$E21="","",VLOOKUP(\$E21,\$O\$5:\$U\$476,2,FALSE))
=IF(\$DI\$2="YES",VLOOKUP(\$E21,\$DJ\$5:\$DP\$366,2,FALSE))

[Code]....

Jul 17, 2013

I'm very new to excel. I need a formula to put in a column (I) that returns ONLY a five-digit zip code from the adjacent cell in column J, which is a full address. Nearly every entry is written differently, and many do not contain a zip code. I would like the cell to be blank if the cell in J contains no zip code .

I'm using the formula:
=MID(J5,MATCH(TRUE,ISNUMBER(-MID(SUBSTITUTE(J5,"","#"),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(J5)-4)),5)),0),5)

This formula sometimes returns -**** format numbers, considering them to be negative and still five-digit. It also returns #N/A if no zip code is present, and I would like this to be blank. I'm sure I can nest the formula within an IFF, but have not been able to make it work myself.

## Average Of VLookups Ignoring Blank Cells

Oct 24, 2011

I am trying to get a rolling 8wk avg of a large group of data. I am trying to take the avg of 8 vlookups:

=AVERAGE(VLOOKUP(\$A\$9,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-7,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-14,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-21,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-28,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-35,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-42,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-49,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE))

However, in some cases, the cell to be looked-up may be blank. Using the formula above, the result of these vlookups is "0". I want to take the average of these vlookups excluding the blanks from the 'Raw Data' sheet.

## Vlookups That Return Multiple Values?

Dec 17, 2013

I am trying to write a formula that is based on a vlookup that will return multiple values. Attached is a spreadsheet that is an example for what I am trying to do. On the download tab it is an example of a general ledger. On the total tab I want to enter a GL# and have it list all the entries for that GL number. I know I can try an array, but I have not been able to figure that out.

## Nested If Cell A1 Is NOT Blank Then

Jan 7, 2010

if Cell A1 is NOT blank then

If cell b1 is blank then show I in cell c1
If cell b1 has a date (any date) then show C in cell c1
If cell b1 says "ongoing" then show O in cell c1
If cell A1 IS blank then c1 should show nothing.

## Nested IF / AND Returning 0 Instead Of Specified Blank?

Apr 14, 2014

My formula is returning a 0 when true instead of being blank as specified. If I designate a value other than "blank" (i.e. "A Word") it still returns a 0. What am I doing wrong?

=IF(AND(CBAuditType="PHYSICAL",TxtInsuredName=""),"",TxtInsuredName)

## Nested IF Checking Non Blank Cells

Dec 18, 2009

I want to create a nested IF formula that checks for blanks in three cells.

If A1=Not blank, then enter in "Live"
else
If B1=Not blank, then enter "Signed"
else
If C1=Not blank, then enter "Interested"
else
enter blank into cell

## Nested Formula: Validate The Cells Are Not Blank

Oct 28, 2009

Trying to create a formula, assume it will need to be a nested formula since I need to validate that cells are not blank and if so use a different cell .....

## Nested Vlookup Not Return Correct Value?

Feb 20, 2014

I have the following formula:

=IF(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #1'!\$A:\$K,6,FALSE)<(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!\$A:\$K,6,FALSE)-((VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!\$A:\$K,6,FALSE)*0.03))),'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!A3,IF(VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #1'!\$A:\$K,6,FALSE)>(VLOOKUP('CORE Data 3 Month #2'!\$A:\$K,6,FALSE))+((VLOOKUP(A10,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!\$A:\$K,6,FALSE)*0.03)),'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!C3,'CORE Data 3 Month #2'!B3))

The strangest thing is happen. The part of formula underlined and the part bolded are identifical. For some reason, excel is unable to find the value in the underlined portion but is able to find the value in the bolded portion. As a result, I'm getting a #N/A result. how this can be corrected?

## Fill With (blank) When No Data Found

Feb 3, 2009

Fill with (blank) when no data found
I have the following data lets say:

Mar 25, 2009

I'm using VLOOKUP to search for results in another worksheet. What I need is 0 returned if the search fails. Currently I'm getting #N/A and that's causing my other formulas to fail.

## Return Value If Match Found

Aug 25, 2007

I am trying to compare a single cell's Value in 1 worksheet to try to find a match in another column (or a range of cells). If I find a match I want the result to be a 1 and if it is not found then a 0.

Is this the Lookup function?

## Nested If Statement That Doesn't Give Blank Cell When It Is Evaluated?

Aug 29, 2012

I have a nested if statement that doesn't give a blank cell when it is evaluated. The cell is general formatted but results in a '0' in the cell instead of a completely blank cell.

If statement is:
=IF('Sales info'!B16="",'Sales info'!B6,IF('Sales info'!B6="","",'Sales info'!B16))

Why is this giving me a 0?

## Return Yes If Text Is Found Within A Cell

Dec 24, 2013

I currently have the below formula to search for text of interest (A1) within each cell of a column (B6:B30).

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A1,\$B\$6:\$B\$30,0)),"NO","YES")

The formula works perfectly if there is only a single value in the cells. But not so well when the cell has multiple values separated by a comma.

For example:

Column B

X
Y
Z
T, X, Y, Z

It would return a "Yes" for X, Y, and Z because those are found individually. However, T will appear as a "No", because it is found within a cell that is separated by commas.

## Return A Result IF A Certain Value Is Found In Another Cell

Jul 2, 2009

I want to return a result IF a certain value is found in another cell. I've attached a sample workbook, but here's a description:

On the "Inventory" worksheet, in column H, I want to lookup the quantity in column B from the "Warehouse Response" worksheet. If the Part # in column E of the response sheet is NI1088106, I want THAT value to show under the NI1088106 part number, and I want the quantities for the NI1089106 to show under that part number. Ideally, the result of the formula would show a "0" if no data is found.

Here's the formula I tried beside the NI1088106 data, but it's not giving the desired results: =IF('Warehouse Response'!E:E="NI1088106", VLOOKUP(LEFT(A3,3),data,2,0))

## Lookup Two Different Columns And Return If Both Found

Dec 3, 2012

I am trying to look in B1:B100 for the Cell that matches A1 and C1:C100 for the cell that matches A2 then return the value from D1:D100 that meets the 2 criteria.

## Getting Cell Match To Return FOUND?

Apr 14, 2013

I know I can do this by nesting a load of if statements but I was wondering if there is an easier way.

If in cell A2 I have the value 12 and I want cell A1 to return a value FOUND if any cell from A6 to A24 has the value 12 in it.

## Return Range Where Data Is Found

Aug 8, 2006

I am looking for a function that will search a range like 101-199, 200-249, 250-299 and so on.... Say I have a list of numbers like 155, 179, and 210. How can I find out what range they belong to? I am kind of looking at SumIf's but I cant seem to get that to work.

## Lookup Value & Return Text If Found

Sep 15, 2006

Im trying to create a formula that check to see if the value in H4 equal any value in the vlookup table m4:m48, if so, then Y, if not then N. the following does not work: =IF(ISNA(MATCH(H4,M\$4:M\$48)),"N","Y")

## Return Cell Value If Match Found

Oct 26, 2006

I need to pull data from Column C by looking at Column A. However it's not as simple as that. Under Column A, there are various fields, the first number represents a type of product and under what year it is currently in. So "300100" would represent a 3 yr product that is in it's third year, "210000" would be a 2 yr product in it's first year and so on. The problem is that when I pull data from the DB, some 3 yr products are flagged as products that are in their 4th or 5th years, which isn't possible. So I created an IF statement that takes this into account and ignores illogical combinations.

=If(A2="300100",C2,If(A2="301000",C2,If(A2="310000",C2,If(A2="210000",C2,If(A2="201000",C2,If(A2="510000",C2,If(A2="501000",C2,If(A2="500100",C2,))))))))

As you can see, I don't have the conditions "500010" and "500001" because it won't fit into the IF statement. Is there another way to go about doing this task? I've searched up the forums and someone recommended using the IF statement with VLOOKUP but I don't think it works in this particular case since I have 10 conditions.

## Return Corresponding Value Of Found Match In Matrix

Mar 15, 2008

A have a table like this:

X 1 2
A 9 5
B 8 4

I would like to have a condition that when is equal to B and 2, return the corresponding paragraph in the matrix (in this case 4)

## Formula To Lookup Two Values In A Row And Return Value If Both Are Found

Apr 1, 2014

I am trying to use a formula similar to VLOOKUP() to look in a table for two values and if both values are found, return another value.

Sheet2 is an example of my output file, sheet one is a generated file. i would like the vlookup formula in sheet 2 cell D2 and down to be something like this,

=VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!A:K,10)

But I would like to lookup A2 and B2, and the row that contains both values, return the value in the J column

## Lookup Return Error If No Match Found

Jan 11, 2006

If lookup doesn't find a match in the first column, can I get it to return an
"ERR" or "0", something that would let me know there was no match? Right now
it returns the value in the second column of the closest value.

## Return Maximum Value For A Range If Word Is Found

Mar 13, 2014

I have an Excel Worksheet with 80,000 lines on it. The Columns are arranged thus:

Col A
Col B
Col C
Col D
Col E
Col F

Code
Description
Cost
Rate
Mobile

0.13

1234
Australia Mobile
0.12
Not Mobile

[Code] ........

I am looking for an Excel Formula that will look up Australia & Mobile and then return the highest value of the range of cells it finds that meets that criteria and enters that value in the Rate column next to mobile (F3).

Then I just want a variant of the same formula that will look up Australia but exclude Mobile and then return the highest value of the range of cells it finds that meets that criteria and enters that value in the Rate column next to Not mobile (F4).

## Search Table & Return Heading Of Found Value

Sep 8, 2007

In a large spreadsheet that receives external data, I have codes (U, N or V) allocated at various times to different rows as shown in sample worksheet attached. Elsewhere in the spreadsheet, I need to display (for later export) these codes along with their respective number in a sorted list. Please review the attached:

In the spreadsheet you'll see a column of codes, the next column is the data reference number, then to the right is three columns, one for each code. As displayed in the sample book attached, each Code column is to display the data reference number (from column 2)that matches that column's code.

What formula can I use to list these numbers in the appropriate columns?

## Return Data Adjacent To Found Values

Jul 30, 2008

Is it possible to write some VBA code that will copy IDs from Sheet1 and then find these IDs in Sheet2 and return the values these IDs have?
