# Vlookup (search All Of Column A For The Highest Number In The Range)

Sep 4, 2009

I WANT it to search all of column A for the highest number in the range (which will change daily to a new high number above the highest currently), and return the value in column 4 (column D) that corresponds to that value from column A. This is what I have, but it is not working, it is giving me the number (1) in Cell A800 (which is the lowest valued number in my range. The numbers range in value from 1 to 762 with none repeating (they are sequential). The formula I have is :
=+VLOOKUP(MAX(A76:A2000),A76:I2000,4)

## Highlight Highest And Lowest Number In Range Of Cells Several Times In Same Column?

Jul 28, 2014

need to understand the easiest way of highlighting the highest and lowest number in a range of cells several times in the same column.

As I said the cell range will be in the same column. So highlight the highest number green and lowest number red in cells a3 to a9 and then repeat the same process again in cells a11 to a17 and so on.the cell references are an example.

So I have several separate sets of numbers in the same column.

## Locate Highest Number In Column B Then In Column C?

Mar 10, 2013

I need to locate the highest number in column b then in column c minus the users score from the highest so they can see how much they are behind the highest score. eg.

A B C D
fred 150 highest
dawn 125 25 points needed
mark 100 50 points needed
kevin 80 70 points needed

## Rank Items In Column K From Highest To Bottom With Corresponding Number In J

Dec 20, 2013

I am looking to have the items in column K 1 through 16 listed from highest to lowest and at the same time post the corresponding number from column J 1 through 16.

So that it reads as follows:

04 - 18 - 06
02 - 17 - 06
08 - 10 - 03

Item 04 has 18 points and is listed in 6 columns etc.

How can I get Excel to do this?

## Count Highest Number Of Duplicate Text Entries In Range

Nov 2, 2011

I have a column that is filled with different names. Some names appear more than once. There is one name in fact that appears four times.

I am looking for a formula, or VBA if that's necessary, that will look through the range Y2:Y50, and return a value of 4, because the person that has the most duplicates, her name appears 4 times.

If everyone's name appeared only once, except for a person whose name was in that range twice, then the formula would return a 2.

## Formula To Count Highest Number Of Continuous Cells With Data In A Range And Their Sum

Apr 1, 2009

I have a range of 30 cells in a row. From that row there are groups of cells that have data that might be 1-7 cells populated in a row and in between these groups are blank cells in the row. I need to see what is the highest number of cells in a continuous row that contain data, what the mode is for continuous cell counts, and what is the average value for the data from the continuous cells. The average is a nice to have but not entirely necessary as most cell data will be fairly similar and I can get a close enough average just by knowing the average number of cells that contain data in a row. I have to do this calculation for about 1000 rows of individual data so its important a formula fit in one row.

Almost need a count function to count starting with each cell and then stopping at the first no no value it finds. Then it would show those counts and I could run a formula to pick the highest count and also show the mode of counts.

I will let the experts at it!, my weak mind could not think this one through. I thought something to do with MATCH for a while but no go from what I could do.

## Concatenate In A Vlookup To Search For A Resource Number

Mar 4, 2010

what i am trying to do is use concatenate in a vlookup to search for a resource number and date, then return another column in the array.

the formula looks like:
=VLOOKUP(CONCATENATE(D7,\$H\$6),Roster_Allocation,7,FALSE)
but only results in NA.

if i search for the resource number only, i get the correct result.
also, the res# and date are concatenated in the table array. could this be related to the way excel is storing the dates (40241?) even though both concatenated fields look the same?
i have also tried adding a new coumn which has the res# and dates concatenated as the lookup value but still all NA.

## Vlookup: Search A Certain Range Of Cells

Apr 3, 2008

1. can i limit vlookup on sheet2 to search only a certain range of cells on a sheet1.

example, I want vlookup to look in sheet1, colum A - Y but only look between rows 1 and 100

2. If 1 can be done, and i happen to add a row in worksheet1 (making it 101 rows vice 100) will the vlookup code on sheet2 include that 101st row or do i have to redo the range manualy.

## Formula: Average Value Of Cells Left Of Highest N Values In Above Column Range

Sep 24, 2006

I need a cell formula that will (a) identify the highest N values in an above specified column range, (b) color the interior of those N cells (I suspect that this is not possible), and most importantly (c) return the average value of N corresponding cells, where the corresponding cells are located on the same rows as the identified N high value cells but in a specified column to the left (not necessarily adjacent)

Does anybody know what this formula would look like?

Example:

-----------------------
...| A | B | C | D | E | F |
-------------------------
1 |....| * |.........| 7 |...
-------------------------
2 |....................| 2 |...
-------------------------
3 |....| * |.........| 6 |...
-------------------------
4 |....................| 1 |...
-------------------------
5 |....| * |.........| 5 |...
-------------------------
6 |....................| ? |...
-------------------------

? = average of B1,B3,B5 where (N = 3) and (specified column to the left = B)

## Use VLOOKUP Function When Column To Search Is Not Column A?

Sep 27, 2012

use the VLOOKUP function when the column I need to search is not column A?

I have a Workbook with two worksheets in it and in Sheet 1 I have 10 columns of various text and numbers. In cell A1 of sheet 2 I will fill with a certain code that appears in column E in Sheet 1. The result I would be looking for should come from Column A in Sheet 1. I thought that the following would work copied into B1 of Sheet 2 but it doesn't appear to - =VLOOKUP(\$A1,'Sheet 1'!E\$1:\$E\$481,1,FALSE).

## VLookup To Search Range On Different Sheet And Return Appropriate Corresponding Cell

Jan 22, 2014

I need to lookup to search a range on a different sheet and return the appropriate corresponding cell.

Basically its if a1 is found in the other sheets range a1:a100 then return the corresponding Bcolumn value from the different sheet.

Formula
=VLOOKUP(A2,'All Users'!A\$2:A\$100,'All Users'!B!2:B!100)

Example of 'All Users' Sheet

A B
STAFFIDSTAFFNAME
24177John
10487Paul
20031George
84087Ringo
85772Pete
24485Stuart

## Vlookup: Search For Value In SECOND Column Of Table Array And Return Value From FIRST

Oct 7, 2008

I'm looking for a formula to search for a value in the SECOND (instead of first) column of a table array and return a value in the same row from FIRST (instead of the same or another) column in the table array. Formula would be searching for the unique production order number in the column B and return production line id from the column A.

A1 production line_id
B1 poduction_order_number

A2 L1
A3 L2
A4 L1

B2 505212
B3 504234
B4 505663

I was trying vlookup(504234;B2:A4;2;0) to make formula go search from right columns to the left but then excel is switching the search table to A2:B4 and gives #N/D!
One remark-there is no possibility to switch these 2 columns to simplify. I have to leave them as they are.

how to find text from a row in column, where is a lot of text and return row number, of located text?

## Search Date - Get Row And Column Number

May 22, 2014

I have this horizontal list of dates.

4/1/2014 5/1/2014 6/1/2014
A C E
B D F

I am trying to search for a certain date and get its row and column number. I am having trouble finding the dates due to its date formats.
4/1/14 4/01/2014 etc

I am using this code to search Set Foundcell = Range("1:1").Find(What:=(Sheets("Data").Range("AF1").Value)).row

When debugging the value of the Foundcell I am getting NOTHING as a result even if the the value at AF1 is 4/1/14
However if I find using the .Find(What:="4/1/2014").row i am getting the row number

I also tried application.match function. foundcell= Application.Match(Sheets("Data entry").Range("AF1").Value, Sheets("Data entry").Range("1:1"), 0) result is NOTHING

## Column Number In VLookup Formula

May 15, 2014

Is there a way to put a formula within a Vlookup formula that will act as the column number? For example I have this simple Vlookup formula: VLOOKUP(\$B4,'TAB'!\$A:\$N,8) and 8 references the year 2014. Well if I update the numbers on the separate tab and the year 2014 changes to a different column, I want the formula to automatically change to that.

## Find Column Number From Search Pass To Integer Cell Reference

Jul 21, 2007

I am building a Workbook which takes data from SheetA and inserts it into SheetB.
Part of the data is only entered when a positive value exists.

I then do an export from SheetB.

The problem is that I need to get the column number and pass it to the cell reference based on the field name in row 1.

Dim sFindstring As String
Dim rFindcell As range
Dim iR As Integer
Dim iC As Integer

sFindString = " Find this string in the cell"
'Using cells find the findstring
Set rFindCell = Cells.Find(What:=sFindString, After:=[A1], LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)

'OK so look here
iR = 3
'I am trying to pick up the column number
iC = rFindCell.Column

rFindCell throws an object or with block variable not set error. Is there some property that I need to set.

## Link Search Box With VLookup To Provide Search Result

Jul 15, 2012

What i have so far is:
-3 Sheets (Sheet1 - Search, Sheet2 - Data, Sheet3 - Result)
-Sheet1 has a userform ready to link up - this opens up when workbook and worksheet is activated.
-Sheet2 has some example data to search - the search is for column 1 (see attachment)
-Sheet3 has a template ready for the data to be pasted to.

I would like the search result is column 1 to copy the data from columns 1 to 7 to sheet3.

I want the template/layout to remain after the pasting of results. (everything protected from editing, if possible).

Once finished (ie go back to sheet1, i want the data from sheet3 to be cleared.)

## Automatically Increment Column Number In Vlookup

Oct 29, 2009

I have the following formula. How can I change it so thst when copy/drag the column number automatically increments by 1

IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(\$A2,'Purchase Order Pivot Table'!\$5:\$500,67,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(\$A2,'Purchase Order Pivot Table'!\$5:\$500,67,FALSE))

May 17, 2013

I'm currently working with a largish file of about 300 columns and 40K+ rows.

1. To populate the cells, I have to find a match in column A first.define all of its entries as a range and make Excel's Find dialog box look for matches only within this range?Because right now I have to either constantly select column A before doing the search or move the cursor manually to the top cell before every search to prevent Excel from looking elsewhere... This is turning into a real drag. How to speed things up a bit?

2. After I've found a match in column A, I need to find the right column. All of them have a unique entry in the second row (B2, C2, etc.). The huge problem is there's a c..p load of these columns and identifiers aren't arranged according to any recognizable pattern. So, every time I have to do another search on row 2 to find the column I need. All of this is mind-numbingly, excruciatingly slow.

I'm currently working with a largish file of about 300 columns and 40K+ rows. So two questions:

Is there a way to make Excel jump to a specific column based on a value in a specific cell (in this case, B2-....MO2). Like maybe creating a form with buttons or checkboxes, so that whenever the right box is checked the focus would move to that column and to the row where the Find dialog just found a match in column A. Only I've never had anything to do with programming, so wouldn't even know where to start with this...

## Search Changing Range In Given Column (VBA Code)

Aug 1, 2013

I'd like to create a macro that searches a column within a changing, variable range.

For example, I have a roster with a list of teams. Each team is separated by a blank row. In each team, there are a varying number of team members, and one team leader. Column I has the position code, which designates whether the person is the team leader (SL), or just a team member (RD).

What I'd like to do, is search each team for the team leader, then check another column (Col A) just within that team for another value, and if that value is present return the last name of the team leader as well as the name of the member with the value in Col A.

The problem is, I'm not sure how to search a varying range in Col I. Teams can vary in size from 3-11 members (including leader), and the number of teams varies each day. I don't have the option of changing the format or layout of the roster - it's automatically generated by some other program and given to me in a CSV list.

For example, from this sample data of two teams

Testing Program : DKSFS
Scoring Center : Concord
Rater Schedule Date : 07/29/2013

[Code]....

how to define that range in Col I which changes with each new team. My approach is to find a way to search a range (essentially the values between blank cells ) in Col I for the value "SL", then search that same range in Col A for the value "VM". If there's a value of VM within that range (team), then copy Cols A-E, write them to a list, and insert that person's team leader last name at the right.

how to define a dynamic range in Col I? I already have a working macro written which generates that last time, sans team leader name, just trying to figure out how to search that changing range in Col I for each team to find team leader name.

Note, not all teams will have a member flagged with that VM marker in Col A.

## Create A User Defined Function To Search A Column Of Data For A Part Number

Mar 25, 2008

I want to create a user defined function to search a column of data for a part number.

If it exists I want to have a the UDf returna "fail" otherwise "pass"

Here is the code I was trying to use

Function firstpass(SN As String) As String
ws = Worksheets("Defects")
c = ""
With ws.Range("a1:a9999")
Set c = .Find(SN, LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
End With
If Not c Is Nothing Then
firstpass = "Pass"
Else
firstpass = "Fail"
End If

End Function

This function only returns a "#value" and I don't quite know how to troubleshoot it.

## VLOOKUP - Using Column Name Instead Of Column Number

Mar 24, 2003

I would like to do a VLOOKUP (or similar operation) to grab information from a column based on a column name instead of column number.

I would like the formula to read:

=vlookup(a2,t5:t10,"COLUMN_NAME",FALSE)

## Search Column, Match And Insert Copied Range

Apr 30, 2007

I'm currently trying to insert the copy range of one worksheet to another. Let's say I have 3 worksheets, one main and two additional info sheet. I want to search column C in main worksheet for blank cell and use column F in the same row as the worksheet name which I want to copy from, then use column E from main worksheet as the keyword for the range I want to copy(range from column E to column Z). But when inserting, I want the keyword in main worksheet such as 'G' in the same row as blank cell to match the 'G' in copied worksheet. Because the 'G' in main worksheet is not in the same column for each row, I try to search the forum but can't find the inserting part. I also attach the example workbook.
