# Conditional Lookup, IF & Match Function

Apr 22, 2008

Data for once source
Column A shipping container numbers (alpha & numerical)
Column B the container size code
Column C relevant date of arrival

Data from another source
Column D shipping container numbers (alpha & numerical)
Column E the container size code
Column F relevant date of shipment

What I want is:
If Column A containers match with Column B containers Then in Column G the containers that matched and Column H the container size code
Column I the date of arrival
Column J the date of shipment

Vlookup seem to be an answer, but can�t get it to work. I am not good in VB, so may be formulas would be better Named range and IF & Match FORMULA may be?!! The list will be approximately 20,000 numbers long. Have attached the sample file.

## Conditional Formatting On MATCH / LOOKUP Function?

Mar 6, 2012

I have an "actual build" worksheet, which allows the user to select which materials were used, material properties (e.g. material grade etc.), including its corresponding length. The user can enter all these in manually, or select the material name from a pre-defined list (Reference worksheet contains this information), and then the associated properties are automatic lookups from the Reference worksheet.

So all this is fine / completed, and the LOOKUP returns its theoretical length from the reference table. However, its actual material lengths will almost never match the theoretical length, so what I want to happen is for a conditional format to highlight the cell, to notify the user that they need to enter a manual value. The auto-looked up length is still useful a proposed build on the worksheet, but having it highlighted to ensure it is manually entered later is the objective.

The other thing is it can't just check if it's a formula, it has to check if it is a formula with a MATCH/LOOKUP function. E.g. it needs to be unhighlighted if someone has a basic formula, ie = 2*0.42 if there two of the item etc..

Hence, I was thinking of having a conditional formula that "format only cells that contain" and then format only cells with "specific text" and "containing" and "MATCH(" text function, however this doesn't seem to work.

Length cell formula:

=OFFSET('Reference- Materials'!\$N\$5, MATCH(\$BO32, Materials_Item_Number, 0), 0) * \$AH32

## LOOKUP / MATCH Function To Lookup The Owner Name Typed In Cell

Jan 2, 2009

I have a workbook with 2 different types of sheet - 1 containing source data and the others 'collecting' data from the source sheet, depending on what the sheet is for.

For example, the data source contains different pets, their names, ages and their owners.

The other sheets are on a one-per-owner basis.

What I would like to do is use a LOOKUP / MATCH function to lookup the owner name typed in cell A1 of the output sheet and match it with the corresponding owner name(s) on the source sheet. I would then like it to return with each pet and append the results on the sheet accordingly - like below:

John Smith (in cell A1)

Pet - Name - Age
-------------------
Dog - Rover - 3
Goldfish - Tom - 1
Gerbil - Chewit - 4

## Lookup Until Conditional Match Then Return Last Value In Row

Mar 17, 2009

I am trying to modify this formula to do one more thing, but I can't quite figure out how to do it. I have part 1 and 2, but part 3 is giving me a very hard time. The formula is not working correctly. It is supposed to do several things.

Do an HLookup for a row and return the last value in the row.If there is no value (blank), the value should be "Incomplete."If HLookup finds a value of "Fail," it should look to see if there is a value of "Pass" BEFORE (to the left of) "Fail." If this exists, then it should return a value of "OK."

Here is what I have so far....

## Conditional Formatting Lookup To Highlight 1st Match Only

Mar 4, 2008

The Problem: There is data in a step chart from left to right. On a separate step chart, Conditional formatting is set to lookup values from the first step chart and highlight non empty cells in the row. The formatting should only format the first non empty cell from left to right in the row. After formatting the first non zero value in the time line the formatting should cease. Note: the conditional formatting value and the value of the cell being formatted are not the same in either value or time but are related. The formatting is to illustrate the relation

Current Formatting formula:

=VLOOKUP(\$B395,\$B\$5:\$DB\$211,K\$242,0)

Syntax for Vlookup(Lookup_Value,Table_array,Column_index_num,Range_Lookup)

## Excel 2010 :: Lookup For Match Function

Jul 17, 2014

I think I need some version of a lookup for match function. Here is essentially what I need: I have a column of data points. I need to output every position at which the data point changes to a different value (going from top to bottom). See below for an example.

Here is some sample data (with column headers)

Position
Data Pt

1
-7.5

2
-8.0

[Code] .......

Here is the result I need (I want to put a consistent formula into the second column below that returns the results shown in the second column below):

split 1 position
2

split 2 position
4

[Code] ........

Is what I am describing possible? Because I am inserting this into a template, I ideally need to do this outside of any sort of VBA work.

## IF(AND Function Using LOOKUP For Conditional Values

Dec 3, 2013

I'm new to excel and am attempting to use an IF(AND function that requires the use of two LOOKUP tables for the IF conditions, I have been unable so far to generate the answer I'm looking for.

I have a set of data in two columns, column A which has a series of dates from 1/09/2013 - 30/09/2013 (multiple for each date), and column F which has a series of 4 digit numbers (employee numbers). I also have two columns where I can enter in values for LOOKUP tables, one column for dates (O2:O4) and another for employee numbers (Q2:Q17).

What I am trying to achieve is a True/False answer in a final column for IF A2 = value from column (table) O2:O4, AND F2 = value from column (table) Q2:Q17. For the querry to be true the values in column A and column F must meet both conditions, be from a date in column O2:O4 and also be an employee from column Q2:Q17

=IF(AND(A2=LOOKUP(A2,O2:O4),F2=LOOKUP(F2,Q2:Q17),"Yes","No")

Currently I get a #NA error and I know its due to my formula not being anywhere near correct, as far as I can tell it's a result of the LOOKUP part of the formula I'm attempting to create, as it generates a #NA area when the data does not meet the criteria in the columns (tables), I have attempted to include a ISNA section to the formula to alter the result if the data does not meet the two conditions but when applied to the whole data set it only responds with a False answer even if the data meets both conditions.

## Conditional Formating Using Match Function

Nov 12, 2009

I am having many difficulties getting conditional formatting using the match function to work correctly in my excel document.

What I would like to accomplish is as follows in the 3Q09 tab. If a subdivision name is found in C-62 through C-70 and a match is found for the subdivision name in AB-24 to AB-66 I would like it so the AB-24 to AB-66 Subdivision name is bolded for every match. I removed the function formulas from the 3q09 tab I used to have since they didnt work and I do not want to confuse anyone.

This is correctly done on the "Working Correctly" Tab included in the same file, so please view this for clarification if you need it. Why it works on one tab and not the other simply baffles me.

## Lookup Data From Multiple Worksheet Using Indirect Address And Match Function

Sep 28, 2011

determining the correct formula to lookup various details from multiple worksheet:

Data as follows:
Sheet1: input
AB1MonthSales2AUG55003MAY4000

Sheet2: Data

AB1MonthSales2JAN20003FEB25004MAR30005APR35006MAY40007JUN45008JUL50009AUG550010SEP600011OCT650012NOV700013DEC7500

i dont know what is the correct range inside the match fuction to identiy the row number inside the Data sheet, i think the solution would be match(a2,Data!a2:a13,0) but things might get complicated if you have multiple worksheet such as sheet2: Data , sheet3: Data2, sheet3: Data 3

and each table has unsorted details compared to others sheets (Data vs Data 2)

## Fastest Lookup Method: Use A Key To Lookup A Value (VLookup, Index/Match, DGet, And The Rest)

Mar 26, 2008

Excel offers many ways to use a key to lookup a value (VLookup, Index/Match, DGet, and the rest). What's the fastest way to perform a lookup of a small table of, say, 30 rows of key-value pairs? Theoretically, it would be most efficient to use a branch table (also known as a jump table). See the wikipedia article for branch tables: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Branch_table. Does Excel/VBA have a way to create a branch table for such lookups?

## Lookup/Index-Match-Match Using Segments

Is it possible to return a value or a sum of values using segmented lookup criteria. The Sample 1 spreadsheet (attached) explains it better.

## Lookup Table (adjust Which Column The Lookup Function Refers To)

Jun 12, 2009

I am trying to perform a lookup (vlookup) function in a cell in excel and wish to have the range as a variable, so that I can adjust which column the lookup function refers to.

## VLookup To Pivot Table Using Match Function - Returns Error If Can't Find Match Value

Mar 11, 2014

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.

## VLOOKUP / INDEX / MATCH Function: Match Data From 2 Independent Sets??

Oct 8, 2009

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)

## Using Index / Match Function For Two Column Match Values

Aug 28, 2012

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.

## Lookup Function To Lookup For Data In Another Table

Jul 29, 2008

I am trying to use lookup function to lookup for data in another table (we call it table A). Unfortunately, whenever the code is not in the table A, Excel will return the data from the previous row.... is there any possible way to prevent this... in another word, if the code does not exist in the table A, I want Excel to return 0 or some other figures.

## Nesting Index / Match Function Within Vlookup Function?

Dec 3, 2013

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.

## Conditional Formatting: OFFSET Function To Define A Range Inside A SUM Function

Apr 13, 2007

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?

## Set Up A Lookup Function With Two Lookup Values?

Apr 18, 2008

Is it possible to set up a lookup function with two lookup values? For example, say I have a list of items such as:

1 A 14
1 B 22
2 C 84
4 D 25

I'd like to have the lookup go to the above table and find the number 1 and the letter B and return 22. I can't seem to visualize how to make this work.

## Nesting Ceiling Function In IF Function - Conditional Formatting?

## Lookup Match

Jan 8, 2008

I have a two sets of data, both which I have calculated variances plan Vs Actual, I would like to compare the previous months variances of different sheets. I have put a sort on the variances in descending order.

I want to match two fields E.g. B1 & D1 in sheet1 AND if they match then bring back L1 data in sheet2? The both sheets have same column names and in same order.

## Lookup Closest Match

Nov 3, 2006

I am looking for a fourmla to return a value in a column next to the closest value. Yes, this would normally be a vlookup example however in my application the numbers will not match exact as such in an client lookup application. I need to find the closest value to the value compared in the range and return the value to the right of it.

I have made up a small table attached with comparing what vlookup gives me and what I am looking for.

## Lookup Or Index And Match

Aug 4, 2014

I am setting up a spreadsheet, that will have multiple sheets for each branch, this will than be referencing back to another sheet for data. As i will be replicating the sheets I want to make the formulas as easy as possible so I dont have to change them in every sheet. I have attached an example, the data sheet will have a table for each month, the remaining sheets will be each branch, ideally I would like to have a formula that looks up the data sheet and returns a value for each month and then be able to replicate the formula across each sheet. As the formula is looking at 3 different areas (date, branch and mortgage balance) i have tried using idex and match, but are not having any success.

## Lookup With Partial Match

Dec 14, 2012

I am trying to create a lookup table that will lookup parts of a colum and return the second column in the table. For example, column A has a lot of different titles in it, they each contain different segments and codes in them but I need to see if NM is in the list and if it is I want to return a 1.

Column A Lookup COLUMN Lookup Result
NM01A NM 01
NM02B IN 02
IN01A
IN02B

I need to see if what is in the lookup column is in column A, and if it is then I need to return the lookup result.

## How To Match Value Between A Range - If / When Or Lookup

Nov 13, 2013

I would like to match a value between a weight range.

For example:
0-0.5 gram is \$2
0.5-1 gram is \$3

So, if my weight is at 0.3, the formula should give \$2.

## Lookup Using Partial Match

May 2, 2014

i need some formula to lookup with partial match "name", like this below :

name
property code
partial name (manual type name)
desired result
jim bob
1988.08.000250
jimmy bob
1988.08.000250

[Code]...

etc...

it's possible with excel formula?

## Lookup, Match, Combo

Jan 25, 2008

2 worksheets. The first has the raw data and I want to drag some stats onto the second.

I'm trying to make it look in one column on first sheet and identify matches for a range of numbers (say 100 to 199), then where there's a match, look across into another column and count instances of specific inputs (A). ie, 114 has A in column G as does 119 and 199, 115 has B = count will be 3 -

My attempts at stringing combinations of match, IF, Countif and lookup/vlookups have, frankly, been a tad pathetic!

## Row Lookup: Return Zero If No Match

Nov 14, 2009

I have exported an income statement report from the ERP system to Excel. Only items that are not equal to zero are populated. So if there has been no expense in the Central division for Consulting fees, it does not show up on the report. Here is the formula:use control shift and enter

small(if(row(A1:A100)-ROW(A1)+1>MATCH("Central Division",A1:A100,0),if(A1:A100)="Consulting Fees",ROW(A1:A100)-ROW(A1)+1)),1)(
Excel Jeanie HTMLSheet2

A 2 East Division 3 Sales 4 Cost of Sales 5 Payroll 6 Lights 7 Consulting Fees 8 Net Profit 9 10 Central Division 11 Sales 12 Cost of Sales 13 Payroll 14 Lights 15 Net Profit 16 17 West Division 18 Sales 19 Cost of Sales 20 Payroll 21 Lights 22 Consulting Fees 23 Net Profit

Excel tables to the web >> Excel Jeanie HTML 4
So this formula picks up the first Consulting Fees after the Central Division. The problem is it is going to pick it up under the West Division. So, how would I modify the formula so that if the row number is also less than Central Division Net Profit (A15), it is zero. (no offset or indirect)
