I am trying to use the vlookup function together with an offset function but i am not getting it to work properly.
The situation is as follows:
I have a column E in which i use the vlookup function to find its corresponding value in B which in turn refers to a named range. However, the figure i want the function to return is 2 columns to the right and 2 rows above the value which the vlookup funtion finds in the first column.
I have though of using the offset function, but i cannot figure out how to make this work.
In Mr Excel's Pod Cast on April 12th, he showed how to use the OFFSET function to define a range inside a SUM function. Then he had Conditional Formatting that would highlight the range that was being summed. Can anyone tell me what the formula would be inside the Conditional Formatting dialog box to get the OFFSET range to have a certain format?
I am having some difficulties using a combination of IF and the OFFSET function to display a range of cell values from another column based on a simple condition. The values I need to display at the destination cells should be offset by 8 columns to the right and "X" rows down from the reference column. The value "X" is to be determined via the IF function to check for the row index number.
For example, if Index value "X" = 8, then display the value of B2 in cell I9. IF X = "9", display B2 in cell I10 etc.
I have attached a sample worksheet that provides some examples.
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.
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
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.
In row E10:Z10 I have a series of values and in row E6:Z10 I have dates associated with each of the values in row 10.
I would like to create a formula to look in E10:Z10 for the maximum value and then return the date associated with that value. For example, if the maximum value is in P10, I would like the formula to return the date in P6.
I have tried without success to use the OFFSET function as follows:
I'm trying to create a formula that would return the value of the column next to it. Looking at the below example, in a new cell I would want to be able to return the value 7 based on the fact that it is in category b.
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 have a total line that gets moved down with each additional newly inserted row from a vba macro. I need the total line to sum all rows in column "B" beginning with the row immediately above the total line and continuing to 30 lines above that.
I was wondering if there was a way to use sumif and offset to guide the summing column in the example below. Perhaps I need to add an additional column, then formulate a solution. I want to sum the daily returns for the TSX when the slope is positive (green), and sum the S&P when it is negative. Currently, on signal day, I am summing that day's return, which I don't want to do. I want to sum starting on the next day (blue). The B column switches back and forth from positive to negative, so I will summing different data periods going back 1000 days. I am summing the TSX returns and S&P returns seperately to make it easier. Currently I have in C1=(sumif(b2:b1000,">0",c2:c1000)) Same for D2.
find attached the excel sheet. In sheet1 I have named the range I have inserted a Name(Test) for range $A$1:$A$2(range contains only texts) and have a list validation on cell $B$1 using the name. This works perfectly. In sheet2 I have named the range I have inserted a Name(Test1) for range $A$1:$A$2(range contains only numerics) and have a list validation on cell $B$1 using the name. This doesn't work.
I would like a consistent OFFSET function formula across a row but my columns move from monthly to semi-annual periods at a point in time. How do I handle the move from monthly to semi-annual periods in my OFFSET formula?
I am looking to do lookup list using the offset function. Scenario: I have 5 dealer groups, each with there own dealers. Each dealer has a list of customers. Once I select the customer it will bring up a list of their vehicles. I am stuck on selecting the customers and vehicles once the dealer group and dealer are selected.
product-id fecha entrega SUM of quantity Q-NATA90 22-jun 15 13-jul 15 03-ago 15 Q_nata is product code (fields) 22-june, etc are the dates of the individual orders (fields) 15 is the amount of each order (data)
I tried to set an offset function in a cell outside the table that, refers to the first DATA cell (upper 15) and returns the date of the order, like this:
I want to use a dynamic range in order to use this formula below in column A as long as there is something entered in column H = SUMIF($N:$N,A5,$I:$I). any ideas on syntax and will this be using the offset function within excel. I know I have posted a couple times about getting this formula to replicate itself down certain columns as long as someone enters text in another. I looked into the offset reply information somone posted but it seemed a little over my head.
ive managed to come up with this formula: = OFFSET( 'G:gailMVTR2007[B052,B261A.xls]B261A45'!$B$5,COLUMN()-3,0,1,1)
which pretty much does the same job as a paste special/translate, this works fine when both files are open and updates all the values that i could ever enter, however, when i open only the file containing the link and press "update" it returns a "#value!" error, i dont understand because it works fine when the other sheet is opened and there are no values other than a single number used.
I have an IF Function that I want to use to check mathematical errors between two sheets. For example Sheet2 is where I put all my material prices and Sheet1 cell A1 shows the total amount that is one Sheet2. On Sheet1, I have an IF Function in B1 that does the same calculation A1 does, but will display "ERROR" if A1 does not Match B1.
The IF Function works, my problem is that I want this to work from B1:B100 on Sheet1. But on Sheet2 the next SUM would be from row 42 to row 59.
How can I make and IF Function from B1:B100 on Sheet1 offset every 20 rows on Sheet2
Sheet1 B1 would be: Formula:
Sheet1 B2 would be: Formula:
I need to do this without having to manually enter each range to sum up.
My worksheet has 1096 rows of data including headers. I am trying to create dynamic named ranges using the OFFSET function but when I check to see if they are capturing the entire range I see they are not.
Here is my formula:
OFFSET(SiteTrac!$FA$1,0,0,COUNTA(SiteTrac!$FA:$FA),1) OR OFFSET(SiteTrac!$FA$1,0,0,COUNTA(SiteTrac!$FA:$FA)-1,1) OR OFFSET(SiteTrac!$FA$1,0,0,COUNTA(SiteTrac!$FA:$FA)-1) OR OFFSET(SiteTrac!$FA$1,0,0,COUNTA(SiteTrac!$FA:$FA))
I have tried all four but every time it continues to stop on row 409. I have tried to name different columns and they all stop short too.
i'm running out an option, i must use offset or index function but there are problem found: 1.Offset function cannot use a dynamic height or number of columns and the result are #NAME?, here is the code
VB: Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()Dim k As Variant Dim b As Variant Range(Me.RefEdit1).Name = "item"
i have 2 worksheets. one with portfolio stock data, and a second that i would like to use for dynamic charting. the chart worksheet has a drop down menu that chages a refernce cell to a number corresponding to the collumn in the portfolio worksheet for the chosen ticker
i would like to make a dynamic chart that updates the data ranges based on something like this: ....
I'm working in Excel 2010. I'm trying to create a dynamic range, using the OFFSET function. I've got it working beautifully but as soon as I save it and close the Name Manager the range stops working. When I go back into Name Manager I find all the cell references have changed (from C1:C600 to C1048572:C595 - or some other strange range).
P.S. What it's doing isn't so important as when the cell references are right it works. But just for full info: It's an OFFSET function, starting at A1. It will look at a list of companies and use a Match function to find out how many rows to offset (based on where the first instance of a particular company. And it uses the COUNTIF to make the range the same number of rows as there are entries for that company.
