# Finding Multiple Values To Return Multiple Values

Apr 18, 2008

I have a bill of materials with a description column. I want to search that column for various words (ie. wheel, screw, spacer, shelf, etc) and return a value into another new column depending on that value (wheel inputs wheel, screw inputs hardware, spacer inputs hardware, shelf inputs shelf).

How Excel shows you how to search will only return one value because I can't use an else statement:

## Match Multiple Values With Multiple Values From Another Table - Return Single Value

May 12, 2014

I am trying to look & match key values from 2 areas of one table with two areas of another table; in turn, it'd return one value based on the lookup table...

## Macro For Multiple Lookup Values And Return Multiple Values

May 9, 2013

I have attached sample sheet.

I need to populate the Rep Names looking up 3 Criteria (Client Id,Curr Cov Id,Dom Buy Grp Id) from the Table 1, either one matches the Rep Names has to populate.

The data has to be pasted on WIP_Sheet in different columns.

## Finding Multiple Values For Specific Individual Through Multiple Sheets

Jan 5, 2014

I am working with a nonprofit to set up their financial ledgers. There is one workbook with 12 sheets, one for each month. The goal is to be able to set up a formula that searches through all 12 sheets for every donation that a specific individual has made. For instance, let's say that John Smith gave x amount of money on 1/1/2000, y amount of money on 1/10/2000, and z amount of money on 2/2/2000. This data will appear on 2 different worksheets. I have the following formula, which allows me to look through one sheet at a time:

{=INDEX(Jan!\$B:\$B,SMALL(IF(Jan!\$A:\$A=Smith!\$A\$2,ROW(Jan!\$A:\$A)),ROW(1:1)))}

Where Column A in each sheet is individual name, and column B is amount donated. Sheet "Jan" is the data for the month of January, and sheet "Smith" is the culmination of John Smith's donations for the full year. Using this array function, I am able to retrieve all data for John Smith in the month of January, but I can't find a way to make one function that searches for all of John Smith's donations in each month. Is there a way to build an array function in VBA that would accomplish this?

## How To Return Multiple Values In Multiple Cells If Argument Is TRUE In IF Functions

Jan 8, 2013

I want my IF function to populate two cells with two values if argument for IF function is found TRUE. Is it possible?

IF(logical_test, [value_if_true], [value_if_false])

value_if_true = return multiple values in mutiple cells (for example put number 8 in cell A2 and number 10 in cell A3 if function is TRUE)

How would I do that? I tried putting IF(logical_test, (A2="8",A3="10"), [value_if_false]) but it is not possbile...

## Finding Multiple Values At Once?

May 27, 2014

Actually i have to two sheets. In (1st file) I have the data of customers. And in (2nd file) I get the approved sales. So i have to find the numbers.

In my sales sheet, there is data of customers like name, address, phone number etc.

In my sales report sheet, i got multiple numbers in a notepad file which are rejected sales.

So basically, i have to copy every number one by one, and then have to find it in my excel sheet with CTRL+F and then i change the color of that cell which is rejected.

I want magic by which i simply add all the rejected numbers in one column of my file, and then do Abra Cadabra by which all the numbers which are rejected get in red colour automatically in the column in which there are all the numbers (approved as well as rejected).

## Return Multiple Values From Multiple Sheets?

Apr 23, 2013

I have a workbook with multiple sheets in it. One sheet is an Overview sheet, and the others represent the months (JAN, FEB, MAR, etc). On the Overview sheet, I have a few columns of data set up that I need to retrieve from the various sheets within the workbook. The thing is, this data can occur more than once on any particular sheet and it's very likely to occur multiple times throughout the workbook. For example, compressor #1 was blown down on January 1, January 15, February 5, February 9, February 12, April 22, and so on. Compressors 2-5 were also blown down multiple times throughout the year, as well as various other equipment that I have listed out throughout the numerous monthly tabs. On the Overview sheet, I have the columns Equipment, Date, Temp, Begin PSIG and MCF Loss. I'm needing to get the information from those tabs into these columns.

I first tried a simple VLOOKUP. After all, it's worked for so many situations similar to this, why wouldn't it work here? I quickly found that it won't work here because I need to return multiple results, not just the first one it comes across.

When I copy the formula down it seems to return the same results in every cell, not the next result, and the next, and the next, and so on.

## Finding And Replacing Multiple Values?

Jun 14, 2014

I'm currently doing a project which requires me to find and replace a large number of values.

ie. Column A Row 1 = 80099, Column A Row 2 = 554441, Column A Row 3 = Z5478, CAR4 = B89877 etc...

I need to replace these numbers with meaningful values and I have a reference table to tell me what these codes mean ie. 80099 = apple juice, 554441 = orange puree, Z5478 = pumpkin soup, B89877 = banana smoothie. The reference table is in a separate excel spreadsheet and is tabulated in two columns ie. Column A = "the code", Column B = "the value".

There are like 1000+ codes I need to find and replace which I know is going to kill me if I did it manually. How do I find and replace all the values?

## Finding Duplicate Values In Multiple Columns

Jan 4, 2013

I am not sure if Excel is able to do this but basically I am looking to find out which rows have some duplicate values. I have just read this back and it doesn't make a great deal of sense so I have attached an example spreadsheet.

Basically I am looking to find if E1:G1 duplicates further on down the list, hope this makes a bit more sense with the example attached.

## Finding Duplicate Values In Multiple Columns?

Jan 24, 2014

For my job I have to take hundreds of codes and compare them to other codes. For example, in column A I'll have 453 codes, in column B I'll have 352 and in column 97. I want to find common codes for all three columns. Sometimes, I'll have just two columns and sometimes it's multiple columns. I have tried a few formulas but nothing works that well. Any formulas or MACRO

## Finding Top 2 Values Per Group Based On Multiple Criteria

May 21, 2007

I am trying to find the top two values per group based on multiple criteria. The list I'm working with is not sorted and would be better for it to not have to be sorted as on-the-fly sorts will likely often occur from the raw data and I wouldn't want that to mess up the results I'm looking for here.

As an Example, here's what I'm trying to do:

Make Model Rating
Ford Bronco 64
Chevy Corvette 94
Dodge Intrepid 83
Chevy Chevette 34
Dodge Viper 72
Ford Escape 21
Ford Expidition 53
Chevy Impala 67
Ford Fairmont 11
Dodge Dart 33

## Finding Duplicate Rows Based On Values In Multiple Columns?

Mar 28, 2014

I have a data set which has 6 columns (and lots of rows). Every row is different but I want to aggregate them based on 4 fields and then find the average of the numerical column for the results. I basically want to Group based on 4 fields and find the average of the 5th field.

My initial approach was to introduce a column which is a combination of the 4 fields I want to group by, simply in the Excel file (=A2&B2&C2&D2) and then find duplicates of that. I have a solution for this in VBA but when importing new data sets in this method is very slow, so I want to be able to do the whole thing in VBA.

## How To Return Multiple Values

Jan 21, 2014

Basically I have a workbook that contains two worksheets, sheet1 contains flight numbers in column A and column E contains the Charge code that belongs to the flight number. The problem I have is that in some cases the flight number can appear more than once in the column and the corresponding charge code is different. Is there a way of using a look up to find the flight number and bring back the corresponding Charge code in sheet2?

Please note I have attached a summorised version of the workbook, the actual Travel# in sheet2 is in column R and the Charge code in sheet2 is in column AD.

## Return Multiple Values With One Value

Mar 26, 2014

I have list of 2043 rows and i have like 29 values i need to look up and return me several values that associated with that particular number but I want it to list them horizontally or even vertically but whenever i get the right code in one cell and i drag that green box it formats it in a weird way that gives me an error.

Here is the sheet I would like an VBA or macro.... my VBA code is already on here but somehow i get an error.

Book3.xlsx

So what i did was the first code followed this example still get errors [URL] .....

So match pcode columnsA to find and return the columnB result somewhere else on the sheet list them out horizontally preferred or vertically.

## UDF To Return Multiple Values

Jul 16, 2014

I'm looking to create a UDF called ListItems which will look through a range and create a one column contiguous list of non-blank values.

e.g. below is Range("A1:C3") --> ignore the Column Headers, they're just included for visual reference.

Column A
Column B
Column C

John
Peter
Mary
Andy
Dave
Karen

If the user used =ListItems(A1:C3) in cell D1, the result would be:

Column D

John
Peter
Mary
Andy
Dave
Karen

Couple of things to consider:

1. The user would most likely have to confirm this function with Ctrl+Shift+Enter --> that is fine

2. A UDF might not be the most efficient/suitable solution to this "problem", but I'm currently learning about UDFs, so am more interesting in how they work, than determining the most elegant/correct way to resolve this issue.

3. The order of the resultant values which I have used above (i.e. reading the range passed to the UDF from left to right one row at a time), is not critical, if it is easier to read top to bottom one column at a time, that would be absolutely fine too.

## Look Up One Value And Return Multiple Values

Apr 20, 2006

I'm trying to lookup one value in a column, and if I find that value in multiple cells, I want to return what value is next to the finding value.

## Vlookup To Return Multiple Values

Jul 6, 2007

Is there a way where i can vlookup a column and return all matches if there are multiple values?

## VLOOKUP To Return Multiple Values?

Jun 27, 2014

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"

## Vlookups That Return Multiple Values?

Dec 17, 2013

I am trying to write a formula that is based on a vlookup that will return multiple values. Attached is a spreadsheet that is an example for what I am trying to do. On the download tab it is an example of a general ledger. On the total tab I want to enter a GL# and have it list all the entries for that GL number. I know I can try an array, but I have not been able to figure that out.

## Return Multiple Values From Array

Dec 27, 2013

I am remodeling my home and have put together a budget template. I have uploaded the file to make things easy to understand. Basically I want to return the values from column F and G on sheet "ledger" to the corresponding account name to column H in sheet "budget". For example, rows 14, 21, and 22 in the "budget" sheet currently correspond to the "fuel" account. I would like those values in column G (or F) to be added and calculated in cell H58 in the "budget" sheet.

## Return Multiple Values Horizontally?

Jun 5, 2014

I managed to found an array formula that return multiple values with a condition. Below the formula:

[Code]....

I am attaching a simple file. In cell O4 I paste the formula, and I drag it as much as I need. But my issue comes when the formula begins the calculations. I need to calculate 50 columns with over 9,000 rows each column (over 45,000 arrays). Imagine the processing load to my computer and the consuming of time.

## Lookup To Return Multiple Values

Nov 11, 2008

Is there a way to use a lookup formula to return all values of a given text, not just the value of the first listing of the text. In an attempt to clarify my already confusing request, if A5 on "worksheet1" is "Land" I want E5 on "worksheet1" to return the summation of values assigned to "Land" "worksheet2" "column B" any time "Land" appears on "Worksheet2" "Column A".

## Use A VLookup To Return Multiple Values

Apr 7, 2009

I have a workbook with 2 sheets. The sheet called 'data' contains all purchasers names (which do get repeated), the item they bought and 3 item costs, all in range A1:E15. The 'lookup' sheet allows the user to enter a purchasers name in cell B1, then I want all the items that purchaser bought listed with the corresponding item costs. I've attached a sample spreadsheet.

## VLOOKUP To Return Multiple Values

Jun 3, 2008

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 Multiple Values?

Dec 19, 2011

I've been trying to research vlookup to see how I can use it or something like it to return multiple value for a dynamic chart I'm trying to build. I've found several paged to give examples but I can not seem to figure it out with my sheet b/c the examples differ from mine I have a financial spreadsheet with several categories and I want to make a chart for all my utilities. i need a array formula (i think) that will search for (example) My salary, my wife's salary and other income and extract those values in the next column (Credit (+)) to build a chart... (i will use this same concept to make other charts as well.) The Categories column is F and the values will need to be extracted for the chart are in G. doesnt matter where they are extracted to but for the sake of being speific ill say starting P50.

(first row below headings is row 5)
CATEGORYCREDIT (+)DEBIT (-)Salary - Byron\$ 2,571.11 Utility - Electric\$ (154.25)Salary - Felicia\$ 1,120.20 Utility - Gas \$ (79.47)Mortgage\$ (852.01)Salary - Byron\$ 2,499.53 Other Income\$ 150.00

## Return Multiple Values Using Index?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a table with a couple thousand rows. I am having trouble writing an index and match to return multiple matches.

I want to use the value in Column 1 (Search Name) to search through Column 2 (Code) and when it finds a match, return the matches from the Return Item column.

Not all of them will have a match (A1AT), but some of them will have multiple matches (ALB2).

Would the output be horizontal across? Where the various matches would come under columns 4, 5, 6, etc.

SearchName
Code
Return Item
A1AT
SDES
TDRNC

## Using IF To Return Multiple Values WITHIN A Formula

Nov 25, 2009

I've got a complicated logic formula which looks at multiple values on a large spreadsheet to return a singular figure based on whether all these conditions are met. It works well but I wan't to add an extra stipulation to it. I won't paste the full formula as it probably wont mean much without all the data so heres a mini version with simplifed conditions - but that DOESNT work:

=SUMIF(K10:K13,IF(H10="CAT","CAT",IF(H10="DOG","DOG",IF(H10="ALL",OR("CAT","DOG"),""))),L10:L13)

Its the last bit that I'm having problems with - I want to say if H10 equals "ALL" then in my table of values to add up not just "DOG" values or "CAT" values but "DOG" and "CAT" values

## Multiple Occurances, Return All Values

Feb 5, 2010

Is it not possible to use entire columns references when you're looking up one value and wanting it to return multiple corresponding values? For example, my formula seems to work fine when I use something like:
=INDEX(\$A\$1:\$B\$7,SMALL(IF(\$A\$1:\$A\$7=\$C\$10,ROW(\$A\$1:\$A\$7)),ROW(2:2)),2)
(with an array)

But if I change \$A\$1:\$B\$7 to simply \$A:\$B (and the rest to straight column references) it gives me a "NUM! error. I need my range to reference a dynamic range because values will be added to the table.

Basically, I need a formula that will return multiple occurances of the same lookup value.
