# Run Match Function Combined With If And Iserror

Mar 4, 2014
I'm trying to run a match function combined with If and Iserror. I need this because I want to see if a given item number in one cell in one sheet in excel is ALSO located in a given range in another excel sheet. If that number is found, I want the result to say "yes". If the item number is NOT also found in the given range in the other workbook, I want it to say "no". This is what I have so far:

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH($C9,'Case Usage Summary'!$A$2:$A$45138,0))=FALSE,"Yes","No")

The problem so far is that this is actually giving me the wrong results. For instance, the above function attempts to located cell C9, denoted as item number 964, in another sheet called Case Usage Summary in the range between A2 and A45138. If it could find 964 in that range in the Case Usage Summary sheet, it should give an answer of "yes", if it couldn't then it should give an answer of "no". The problem is that it gave me an answer of "no", but I just looked through the list of item numbers in the case usage summary sheet and there IS in fact a item number 964 entered in the range. What is going on here? I tried this for some of the other cells, and it is just giving me "no" for all of them. What is going on?

I am trying and failing to use this

If (IsError(Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(StartAT, GradeArray, 0))) Then

StartAT is a text string that might be blank or a space or other invalid entry, GradeArray is a table which I am using to get a numeric value from a valid text entry. If the entry is invalid then I will use a value from an adjacent cell. The problem is that I get the 1004 error.

I'm having trouble with an iserror statement in part of a procedure I've been writing. This macro uses vlookup often, and will occasionally have errors so I have been trying to use the iserror function to trap them. The code is as follows: ....

How do I use the ISERROR function on a range. I have tried =ISERROR(A1:A10) but this doesn't work, it always gives the "true" output even if there is no error in that range.

I am attempting to create a vlookup formula that will count or sum a series of data so that I can pull it over into a summary sheet on a report. The vlookup formula that I am using is

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP($A34,'Jan 14'!$N$2:$AF$36,12,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP($A34,'Jan 14'!$N$2:$AF$36,12,FALSE))

It seems to be working I just cant figure out how to incorporate the count or sum function into it where I need it.

I have attached a sample of the file I am working with.

I know how to use the large function when looking for a specific criteria as the example below illustrates:

Code:

=IFERROR(LARGE(IF('2012'!$D$1:$D$7="Green",'2012'!$C$1:$C$7),1),"-")

What I'm trying to do is take this one step further and not only find the nth largest numbers in a set of data based on a particular criteria, but also sum those numbers because they repeat in a table: for example a sample table is below:

Account Accout # Store # channel $ sales

A 1000 10001 green $100

B 1001 10011 green $230

A 1000 10002 green $120

C 1002 10021 brown $145

A 1000 10003 green $100

D 1003 10031 red $20

B 1001 10012 green $50

So what I'm basically attempting to do is bring in the nth largest accounts within the "green" channel. Now if these were the top 5 stores I was looking for, the formula from above would suffice. However since this deals with accounts and the account # repeat I need to bring in the total sum of those repeating accounts instead of just one of the unique stores. So if I was seeking the largest account (NOT store) within the "green" channel the correct values this formula would be:

Account A $320

I would imagine we would need to combine a sumif with a large function or maybe involve sumproduct somehow.

i have two excel files which are data and master..both files will be use for salary calculating.. the vlookup formula will be use in master files for dragging the salary data from Data files..the formula as follow VLOOKUP(B4:B225,'D:Salary[Data.xls]AUG'!A$1:F$65536,6,FALSE))

the vlookup working fine to me.. but my problems is i want the data to be auto calculated when they have same value in two columns.. or if the name is similar/match in two columns (one for salary and another one for overtime), the salary should be auto calculated.

Data files will contain of these:

a:Employee ID

b:employee name

c:Employee salary/Overtime

Master files will contain of these:

a:Employee ID

b:Emplyee Name

c:Employee Nett Salary (that will be dragging from Data files)

is there any formula that i can used to combined with my vlookup formula?

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.

I am trying to match data from 2 independent sets, formatted slightly differently so not sure which function would work best for me. From the attached file, I am trying to match the date and time stamp (in cell A1) with that from the other data (in this example in cell E1) and return the data (from cell F1) to cell C1. So basically any date and time stamp before 04/03/09 04:00 will return a value of 44 (this value should appear, therefore in cells C1 - C30)

Basically where the columns say 2011 or 2012 AND 1, 2, 3. I want to be able to have it index the number below based on the GL number on the left and both the year and period on the top. I think that you can do with using the sumproduct function with the binary, but the computer is a little dated and it takes a while to run those calculations.

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.

[Code]....

This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. $E3 is the date required, $BA$1:$DN$1 is the range the dates are entered in

Match: Lookup value = $E3

Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'$BA$1:$DN$1

match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. $A$4 is the department name, $B$434:$B$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = $A$4

Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'$B$434:$B$452

match type = 0

Index: array = $BA$434:$DN$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

I'm using the match function to tell me in which column the first positive/non-zero number appears. However, the formula is returning the # of columns in the range. Here is what I'm using:

=MATCH(1,H6:CA6,TRUE)

I'm getting 72 back as a result, which is the number of columns between column H and CA.

Any ideas why this is the case?

I have the below code sent in by a MR Excel forum user

Public Function BigMatch(rngIndexColumn As Range, varMatchValue As Variant, rngMatchRange As Range) As Variant

Dim lngCol As Long

Dim rngCell As Range

lngCol = rngIndexColumn.Column

For Each rngCell In rngMatchRange

If rngCell.Value = varMatchValue Then

BigMatch = Cells(rngCell.Row, lngCol).Value

End If

Next rngCell

End Function

when using the BigMatch Function = BigMatch(any cell in the column you want to pull from, the value you want to match, where you want to find that value)

I am using 2 different sheets, Technology & Lessons learnt: when I try the BigMatch Function

=BigMatch(Technology!C17,'Lessons Learnt'!A46,Technology!W17:AD27)

Instead of returning 'Technology'!C17 its returning the value from Lessons Learnt C17,

Lets say the cell I'm working on is D3

D3 = A1+A3+A5 (It's a formula, and sometimes it returns "#VALUE")

I want cell D3 to have a formula and if the result in D3 ISERROR, put a value of 1 there.

I'm running into Circular Reference, and don't know how to do it ....

I have a very long function I created. But I need to edit it in a matter I have never done before.

Below is my function and i will like to add a new condition to it.

IF the text value in cell C7 is equal to any text value in Workbook2 B10:K10 and the value underneath that cell (I.e if B10 then B11 etc..) is Deleted then I want to have one of the conditions of my function below display "Deleted".

=+IF(AND(E7<=0,J7<>0,Y7<=0,AO7<=30),"Check Inventory",IF(AND(E7<=0,J7<>0,Y7<=0,AO7>=60),"Delete Listing ",""))

Using the address function to find the exact cell of a unique string text.

I'm using the following command to find the address of a string i have in a different cell.

=ADDRESS(MATCH("*$H$1*",A:A,0),1)

The string text is in cell H1, H2, H3.......(or on another sheet). The goal is to find the address of a cell containing the unique string text from cell H1, H2, H3.....(that entire column) in a sheet with 13,000 lines. Basically, searching for a specific cell address of a string text referenced from another cell.

I would think an if/offset/match function would do this but I can't seem to figure it out as it may require nesting.

I want to create a formula which i can put in column B which will match every name in A to the name in F but will enter the value as the unique number.

ie

A1 will contain Joe. E1 = 1 F1 =Joe. When I enter the formula in B1 it will show as 1. How would I write this as a formula?

I have a column of values (text) to choose from. I need to randomly assign them to names.

There are more values then names.

Each name has to have a value.

Each value has to be used only one time.

Not every value has to be used.

Column B contains names, column Q contains values.

Now. So far I've come up with below:

Code:

Sub randomize()

Dim Random As Integer[code].....

"Random" returns exactly the amount of values in column Q, so this works ok.

"i" counts iterations correctly, meaning as many times as names in column B.

I tried useing Match to rule out already used value but this code returns "unable to get Match property of the WorksheetFunction class" error.

I've been working on a payroll program for my small biz. I'm close to done BUT...When I use the Index Match function in a cell it works great. However I need to copy it down a column to work for pay periods going forward. When I copy it down of course it puts zeros or N/A.

Columns:

Gross Fed FICA Medicare State Net

F G H I J K

Gross is user input. FICA Medicare State and Net are simply calculated on the sheet. But to get Fed Income tax I use the Index Match function and it works perfectly. The rows increment properly with each new user input.

My question: Fed Income tax is dependent on what the Gross is in order to look up the tables with the Index Match function. How do I get the result of the function into column G? Can I increment up Column G and ignore the zeros that dragging the function down G creates?

I have a variable called LU which I am trying to use to do a match function in a macro.

OwnerOldRow = Application.WorksheetFunction.Match("C" & LU, "Owners1!$A2:$A65")

What I am hoping to do is find the row associated with column C and row value from LU. I have a stop on the line and LU is properly valued but it won't do the match. Is my syntax wrong. I am leaving the match type blank as it defaults to 1 which is the value I want anyway.
