I am trying to create a macro and I need it to return the row # based on a vlookup of a date and not 100% sure how to do that.. Hoping to get a little assistance.

I am looking up a date in column A, and need it to return the row #, then I can do the rest of the macro I need. The date I need to look up varies, and is based on the following function I have in a cell elsewhere, but if there is an easier way in vba to write i'm open:

=IF(WEEKDAY(TODAY())=2,TODAY()-3,TODAY()-1)
which basically says if it's monday lookup the date from 3 days ago (friday), otherwise look up yesterday's date. So today it returns 6/8/09 and I need to find the row that has 6/8/09 as the value in column A.

Now the dates in column a, are all formulas that say previous row's date + 1, so the only row that has the actual date in it is the very first one, then we just add a day. Not sure if that matters, but figured I'd give all info.

I am wondering about the best syntax for using a VLOOKUP return as the row number in a CORREL function. I want to create rolling correlations from today's date. I have a VLOOKUP function that will return the row number corresponding to the chosen day's date. I now need to use that returned value in the CORREL function. That is, I would like it to look something like:

I am using vlookup to return a number from sheet 3. I then need to use the number that vlookup returns in a formula on the worksheet, but since the cell containing the number it returns is actually a formula itself (=Sheet3!A5), the formula returns #value!. How do I get just a number/value that I can use in the next formula?

I am trying to do a vlookup to 1 sheet based on customer number and return price. If no customer number than I want to do a vlookup based on dunnage number to return the price. This is what I have for a formula but it never returns a value if one is found in the first lookup.

Items in Column A1 are calculated by (B2/4+5)*1.4 Items located under the columns 2000, 3000, 4000, etc... 10,000 are calculated by taking the top number, eg 2000/(A1 cell value)+the column B number. 2000/7+0 = 286 (rounded numbers)

I need to find an way to look up for x number (2000,3000,4000, etc...) find the smallest number in that column and then return the value in column A1.

Cell A1 Number >2000300040005000600070008000900010000 70 2864295717148571000114312861429 84 24236148059971883795610751194

I am trying to write a formula, I have 6 sets of criteria with a lower and higher range, if the number falls within the criteria I would like it to return the Alpha number,

PROBLEM: B10 (see below) is a Vlookup and it is preventing C1 to return the name of the agency: AIB or MOODY - Instead I get TRUE or FALSE, No use to me.

I'm trying to use the VLOOKUP function to return value from a row below.

I have a large list of numbers (sheet Data) for the entire year with 8 different items per week, and I need to create a list for each week with group of 8 unique items as shown on "Week 21" sheet (I did it manually by copy and paste, highlights are just for the example, don't need to be at the original file). After the first 8th rows, it should start over until it gets to the last value on sheet "Week 21".

Basically, Column B on sheet "Week 21" should be statics, and once I change value on column A it should return values as in the example automatically.

How to create a formula in cell M2 that looks at the second row of numbers (0 and 500s) and tells me the rightmost value that is greater than zero. In this example it would return 12.

Second Question: Is there a way to return any counted value, for example the second-to-last number that is over 0?

I need this for a tracking sheet of scores. For example, 1 gets 100 points, 2 gets 90 points, 3 gets 80 points, etc. I need to set it up for 10 places. I have no idea and have fiddled with it for two hours now. I need to be able to put a 1 in the cell and 100 appears after I hit enter, etc.

I am trying to use vlookup to locate a cell in another work book. The identifier is in the same workbook as the vlookup formula however the table and column to look within is in another. The identifier will also show up in the other work book where the table resides.

I have this formula "=VLOOKUP(B5,$F$254:$G$258,2,FALSE)" I want it to return a "0" when cell B5 is not populated. How could I do that? Right now it returns "#N/A" and messes up my math down the sheet..

Been working on this problem for a while, I need to have a vlookup (or other function) return locations based off of a concatenate (for unique identifiers). Only issue is that the concatenate formula creates doubles which returns the same location for each vlookup. I have attached an example file.

Q1: In the range for the lookup I'm performing, the column with the possible match is the 2nd column. I've tested my function with this range, but it fails (range is $A$x:$K$x, with possible matches residing in column B). If I change the range so the 1st column has the desired data ($B$x:$K$x), it works. Can I modify the function to search using the 2nd column so I don't have to rearrange the columns in my worksheet?

Q2: Can I return an entire rold of data? If yes, how? I only know how to return one cell.

I have 2 columns of data: Column A is basically postcodes, but just the 1st part and Column B is a #2. If somewhere else on the sheet I type in the postcode IE. SW19 it will show besides it in my lookup the number 2. However if I type in a postcode that is not listed in Column A, I'd like to to return the value 1. I cannot figure this out. My code is:

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.

I have a formula that needs to return blanks as blank and 0s as 0. The vlookup formula will return blanks as 0, or I can make it return a blank whenever it is zero (below), but some cells may have a 0 record that need to return 0s, not blank.

Right now I am missing a few records that are entered as "0". I have:

i have a customer work book for outstanding orders of which there are hunderds of rows with there name order number and the items that are outstanding

when i have progressed all my purchased orders i take all the items and run it throught my work book using vlookup to return who wanted what items if any

but what if there are more then one customer wanting the same item how can i get vlookup to know that and return the next match

i'm still very new at excel so can someone please help me

attached is a small test of my work book

if you see item 3182Y/1.0/BLK you can see it is wanted by both a.f switchgear and amg

I don't even know if using the IF statement is the right function, but anyway. I am using VLOOKUP to complete a supply list, but of course if the supply name isn't on the first spreadsheet then the result is NA. Instead I want it to return 0.

Is it possible to write a vlookup that will return a value of Yes if the value is true and a value of No if the value is false?

I have data in column A on sheet 1 so the lookup value starts in cell A2 and the table array is on sheet 2 in columns A and B so the column index is 2.

Here is my starting Vlookup Formula I. I need to alter it as I will state after the formula...

Code:

=Vlookup(A2,REPORT!$A$2:$D$10000,4,0)

Instead of returning the data from column D upon the first match I need the smallest available number to be returned. There will be more than one match and they will all have different numbers to return so I need the smallest return from D.

So in "REPORT" there is many duplicates in Columns A but they all have different values in Column D and I need to return the smallest number from Column of all of those duplicates in Column A.

When I use my vlookup function and hit enter, the no value shows up and I can still see the function syntax that I wrote in the cell. Here's a sample of what my sheet looks like:

Number Name Hazard Number 2

[Code]...

I need to know the value in the 'number 3' column is for the 'number' column. For example, I need '1302-76-7' inputted in a column adjacent to one of the first three columns. Another example: I need 'na - 07' inputted in the same row that has a 'number' of '1073'. This is how I want it to look:

Number Name Hazard Number3

[Code]...

When I type in the vlookup formula listed above, nothing happens. This is exactly how it looks in my spreadsheet, even when I click another cell or hit enter. Is my syntax wrong or have I just missed something?

how to modify the below v looup formula so it returns only the first word instead of the whole value

=Vlookup($A7,DATA,13,0)

I am doing a comparison of locations but one sheet has just the Location, the other data is formated as Location-Address

I would just like to return the location as i have an IF formula which checks if both Match and because of this is returning false

Also ii anther part of my work book i am doing a look up on division, at present it is returning the Division name, However i would prefer it to just return the first 3 or 4 Initials of the look up

for example if the division called err.. Apples Pears Plums Ltd i would like to return APP if it were Apples Pears Plums Bananas Limited i would like return value to be APPB

I'm trying to vlookup age in column A, then find the closest match of that row, then return the top row's column value of that closes match(largest value less than or equal to). looking for a formula to accomplish this.

For example, for age of 1month, I have a value of 7.5. So, I'd like to return: "5th"

When I look at the formulas in B17 by clicking on the name of the fuction and then clicking on the function button, the roundup function arguments shows 0.071. Also the vlookup function arguments shows 0.071. Yet I get the #n/a as the result from the vlookup in B17.

I have tried coercing the formula by addin +0 like =VLOOKUP(ROUNDUP(B15,3)+0,$N$2:$O$91,2,FALSE)

I have also tired *0 like =VLOOKUP(ROUNDUP(B15,3)*0,$N$2:$O$91,2,FALSE)

Here is a kicker... When I replace B14 with 0.9 or 0.7 or 0.6, the formula works. but I get a #N/A on 0.5.

I have two workbooks which are data dumps from another program. Say I have WO #, Task #, and Cost in workbook1 and WO #, Task # in workbook2. I need to compare the WO# in workbook2 with WO# in workbook1 if it matches I need to compare the Task # in workbook2 with the Task# in workbook1 (but it must compare the same row in which the WO # match was found) then it must return the cost from workbook1 to workbook2 ( again the cost must come from the same row in which the WO and Task match were found in).

This could be a VBA code or even a formula that does not matter.

I am simply trying to do a standard Vlookup but since there are multiple returns for any given match the best results for me are to return them horizontally on the same line in seperate columns.

My original formula holds all the same information, nothing is different except where I want the values to be returned. Here is the original...

=VLOOKUP(K2,'Open PO'!$A$1:$D$13000,3,0) and...

=VLOOKUP(K2,'Open PO'!$A$1:$D$13000,4,0) I have been putting formula 1 (Single Return) into Column X but need the multiple returns to return to X, Y, Z, and AA

I have been putting formula 2 (Single Return) into Column AB but need the multiple returns to return to AB, AC, AD, and AE

There should not be more than 4 returns per match so if anyone could help me with a formula to return each of these formulas horizontally like this.

The main sheet on my workbook has 3 fields- 'Type' , 'Data1', 'Result'

For a given row, a certain formula will be applied on 'Data1' to calculate 'Result'. The formula will vary based on the value of 'Type'.

So example if Type = A, Result= Data1*10

Type = B, Result= Data1*20.

The actual formulas are a lot more complicated.

I know this can be done using a nested if statement, but I would like to know if this can be done using Vlookup (where the formula is returned and it is applied on 'Data1')?

I don't mind any other solution as well as long as I don't need to write a long nested if statement!

I have two separate worksheets, and I am trying to create a Vlookup or Index and Match formula. Here is the example:

Sheet 1 Cell A1= Employee ID: 123-D.

Sheet2 Vlookup A1 from Sheet 1, and match the first five characters to Column A, Column I and Column P. If a match, return name (e.g. John Doe) in Sheet 1, cell B1.

I am designing a workout template i have a table with sets and reps and i would like to be able to select a heading and return all of these values to a specified box.

I have an excel sheet with lot of data.i want to use vlookup function for getting what cell i want. the same time it will also check if and only if two cells are matching then return the result.is it possible. for example:

I have a list of countries in column A, there are duplicates in this list. In column B are numbers corresponding to the country.

A B IRELAND 1221 GERMANY 2341 USA 3443 IRELAND 2231

Ireland could be in the list and have up to 20 different values beside it in column B

On a separate sheet i have a drop down list of all the countries. I am looking for a vlookup or something similar to return a list of all the numbers beside IRELAND when Ireland is selected in the drop down list.

I had been trying a vlookup but this looks at the list and stops at the first "IRELAND" it finds and just returns the value beside the first "IRELAND"
