Vba Vlookup And Return Row Number

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:

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.

Using VLOOKUP Return As Row Number In Function
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:

=CORREL($E$VLOOKUP(today-90,AD5:AE3143, 2):$E$VLOOKUP(today,AD5:AE3143, 2),$E$VLOOKUP(today-90,AD5:AE3143, 2):$E$VLOOKUP(today,AD5:AE3143, 2))

When I enter this, I am told that I have an error. Is there a better way to nest this vlookup?

Return Number/value Not Formula Using VLookup
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?

Vlookup Return Value From A Different Row
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.

Vlookup Return 0 When #N/A
I have a spreadsheet with 2 tabs.

Tab #1 is a complete list of ALL possible pipelines

Tab #2 is a partial list that will ONLY have a pipeline listed if there was activity for the month

I need a Vlookup on Tab#1 that looks up the activity from Tab#2.

However, when a pipeline is NOT populated on Tab #2, I'm getting "#N/A" on Tab#1.

Instead of seeing #N/A - I need it to say "0" so that I can sum the column total.

I tried to look at Error Types...and found that the error type for #N/A is 7, however - I can't figure out how to make the formula work.

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.

Hours Agency

Vlookup Horizontal Return
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)

=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.

Vlookup Two Values And Return Another One
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.

VLOOKUP: Range & Return
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.

Vlookup & Return All Values 2
Very similar to the original thread 'vlookup & return all values', i need to lookup a velue and return all the relevant values.

Unlike the original thread, i need the macro to return an array of cells, rather than just one.

The macro from the original post was this

Public Function FindSeries(TRange As Range, MatchWith As String)

For Each cell In TRange
If cell.Value = MatchWith Then
x = x & cell.Offset(0, 1).Value & ", "
End If
Next cell

FindSeries = Left(x, (Len(x) - 2))

End Function ............................

Vlookup Return A Formula Instead Of A Value
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!

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

Vlookup And Roundup Return #n/a
Which returns 0.03316

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.

VLOOKUP To Return Multiple Values
I'm having trouble getting my payroll data to combine. I've been using VLOOKUP to look up employees by their Personel Number (Column A) and return their name (column B), Cost Center (Column C), the Fund that they are paid from (Column D) and the Amount they are paid (Column E). The problem is that some employees are being paid out of 2 or more funds and VLOOKUP is only returning the fund that appears first, leaving out the other portion of their pay and thus making my grand total quite far off. How can I get Excel to return all the entries for a particular Personel Number? There are more than 16000 employees, so this is no small spreadsheet.

VLOOKUP Return All Columns In The Range
I wanted to lookup value A5, and return all columns in the range A1:D5, I could use the formula =vlookup(A5,$A$1:$D$5,2,false) and copy this formula 3 times changing the third parameter 2, to 3 , 4 and 5. i.e 4 VLOOKUP formulas.

I could, instead, convert the VLOOKUP into an array and enter it CSE i.e =vlookup(A5,$A$1:$D$5,{2,3,4,5},false). This returns the right answer but "appears" to have only used 1 VLOOKUP.

What if this was extended to say 26 columns so instead of "hard coding" the array constants I used =vlookup(A5,$A$1:$D$5,COLUMN(B:AA),false). Is this better than 26 indivisual VLOOKUP's in term of speed?

How To Return Exact Matches Only Using VLookup
I have the following formula which, if text is in A1, will lookup from a list of worker's comp codes to locate the code in A2 and return the wording for that

However, if there is not an exact match to the code in A2, it returns the wording for the next closest code.

Is there a way to make it so that it will only return the wording for the exact match and return "invalid code" if the number in A2 is not found on the list on the "Codes" sheet?

Vlookup To Return Blank Cell Instead Of #N/A
is there anyway to have a vlookup formula display a blank cell instead of #N/A if the value it was looking for is not found. For example the first spreadsheet contains the persons name say Bob, the 2nd spreadsheet that the vlookup formula is searching does not contain the name Bob right now excel shows #N/A but what I want it to show is a blank cell. I've tried conditional formating to just white out the text if #N/A appears but can't seem to get that to work.

a simple vlookup will extract the first occurance of home, but I need another formula to extract the second occurance so I can have them all on one line and have the data as:
