# Lookups With Multiple Inputs

Aug 19, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with a medium-sized data set, and I need to look up values from the large table, and thin the table down to only the relevant values.

To arrive at each unique value, I will have to match 3 input cells to the first 3 cells of the data table, then copy values from across that specific line to the appropriate cells of my smaller table. I really don't need to sum or do any math in this step, its just a copy from the master table to the smaller table, the math will come later.

I think I'm attaching the file (remember-first post) so hopefully it will help with what I'm trying to accomplish. Hopefully this isn't a big deal, but I've been pulling my hair out on this all day and I just can't find a solution anywhere that really matches up to this.

## Multiple Options Cell Values Based On Multiple Criteria Variable Inputs?

Mar 18, 2013

I maintain the data flow at my work. We send and receive the data using excel files with specific formatting that I then upload to the database. Each time I send or receive the excel file I must log them, this is what my code question refers to.

I use RDBMerge to merge all the contents of the 100 plus excel files into one worksheet. The first part of the macro cleans up the merge data for use in the log (i have attached an example of the clean data and finished log).

The blue shaded area of the "Raw_Data" is what the clean data looks like, the yellow column is what current macro records for each record.

As you can see by the example the Raw_Data is only two files LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 & LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121230_01, each with more that one record.

The log code in column "H" Is based on this criteria:
First Letter of the Unique ID in column "E" - O, M, or L
Program Type in Column "F" - U or R
1. O-U = U
2. O-R = RU
3. M-U = U2
4. M-R = R2U
5. L-R = R

You will note that Columns G-R of the "Log Sheet" correspond to the "Record Type" found in Column "G" of the "Raw_Data" sheet.

This is the area where my skill at using scripting dictionaries fails.

The results for the log list each file only once, but the log code for each corresponding "Record Type" in columns G-R of the "Log Sheet" must contain each unique instance of the code. In other words

if LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 contains an O-U with an "A" Record Type and an M-R with an "A" Record Type; then, on the log sheet there needs to be the codes "U/R2U" in the cell intersection of the LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 record row and "A" column (which is column "G")

So, If the File contains one of each code for each Record Type the corresponding cell must house one of each code separated by a "/" without any spaces. This means the cell value could no code, or one code and all the variations in between to all five codes. Also, for ease of human reading the log codes should be concatenated in the 1-5 order that I listed them in (U/RU/U2/R2U/R)

Here is my code so far.

VB:
Option Explicit
Sub test()
Dim dic As Object, a, i As Long, rng As Range, e, w, n As Long
Set dic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

## Get A Count From Multiple Lookups

Jul 11, 2006

On sheet1 I have a column with multiple names. I need a function that can
look up all those names from column B of sheet2, and then count the occurance
of a value in column H of sheet2. Here's the example:

Sheet1 (note that some rows are blank, and some names may appear >1 time):

Helen Back

Cyndi Lou Who

Cyndi Lou Who

Sheet2 (names only appear once):
col Bcol H
Cyndi Lou WhoR2
Dan DangerR1
Dou LuvaR3
Hal BrookR2
Helen BackR1
Joe MamaR2
Lou DuvaR2
Mai TaiR2
Roberta FlackR3
Ron PopeilR2
Will NotR2
Yodan/a

I need a formula that can do lookup sheet1's names in col B of sheet2,
then give me a count of all values "<>R1" in col H. If names are repeated in
sheet1, I do want to include the multiple occurences in my count.

## Multiple Lookups In Single Cell

Jun 13, 2014

I am looking for creating a dynamic meeting log/calendar for my team. There's a couple of elements to my questions below:

I have a log with columns such as "Meeting Date", "Client", "Attendee" and have also set up month calendars on separate tabs which automatically update the dates according to a "Year" toggle using Janoffset, Feboffset, etc.

What I would like to do is have these calendars automatically populate a cell beneath each date with any meetings on that day. The client name and then a space then the attendee in brackets would be sufficient and with each meeting having its own line in the cell).

I have gotten a Vlookup working but have run into two snags: 1) where there is more than one meeting on a single day 2) I can only return one piece of information in the cell or otherwise have it blank, I can't have the client name AND attendee.

Is there any way to lookup all of that information in the one cell or is this just a pipe dream?

I have attached my workbook which contains my workings so far and in the first cell of Jan shown the "ideal" format. I'd like the data in.

## Multiple Table, Lookups And Validation

Mar 31, 2009

I'm having is with different Standards there are different names for the beam sizes - so i need validation in a single cell over mulitple tables. Also i then need to perform the lookup function ( or maybe this isn't the correct way) over the mulitple tables.

The attached spreadsheet will illustrate this better.
I am not too familiar with the advanced excel functions, but should be able to easily grasp these with an example or some guidance.

## Programming Multiple Inputs With Multiple Data Fields

Feb 19, 2009

I am trying to set up a "diet log" for my nephew to track his eating habits for a school project. I am trying to make the "total" section of the attached spread sheet auto calculating depending on the information placed in the "breakfast / lunch / dinner / snack" catagories. I have two worksheets in the file. The first being the preferred method of a single cell and seperating the items using only a ",". The second sheet has a little bit different lay out which I don't think will work as nicely.

Honestly, I am not sure if this will even be possible, but I figured I would try here as a final resort. Currently there are just some sample foods in there as I will let him fill in the actual workbook for his use.

## Multiple Lookups Based On Number In Cell

May 10, 2008

I'm trying to build a IF formula in column F, to use one of five different Vlookups based on cell content of D2 on down. I can't seem to figure this one out..

## Multiple Inputs Into Other Worksheets

Dec 26, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with over 70 worksheets. The majority of these are concerned with Work standards (National Occupational Standards), each of these standards are further broken down into performance criteria.

What I would like to happen is for a person to be able to enter a "Yes" or "No" response in a box to a specific question on an assessment report or a witness testimony worksheet. If a Yes is entered I would like the spreadsheet to automatically enter a reference i.e AR1 or WT2 (stated by the inputter on that worksheet) in each of the other seperate worksheets that cover this perfromance criteria with this reference.

Because many of the worksheets contain similar performance criteria, i.e "treating people fairly and with respect". The answer of "Yes" on the assessment report worksheet may require a reference inputting on anything up to 60 different worksheets. Is this possible or am I dreaming of the impossible?

I really should have asked this question before I wrote out all the seperate worksheets.

## Creating Contact List With Dropdowns / Lookups For Multiple Offices

Apr 4, 2013

I've attached my .xlsx file for easier understanding.

What I want to do is segment out a contact list by "market area" and "department" and pull the corresponding data with those labels from the Contact List tab into the main tab when validated by the dropdowns.

1.) The Market Area dropdown represents different offices.
2.) The Department dropdown represents departments within each office.

What I want the user to be able to do is to select the 2 dropdowns at the top and view an entire listing of the roster of those departments based on how they are labeled on the Contact List tab. I'm still a relative newbie to vlookup/hlookup so I've tried using them and encountered issues with it returning more than one value or being difficult to fill down the next series of values, etc. I simply want it to return the entire set of employees that fit the identifying dropdowns.

## VBA Code For InputBox With Multiple Inputs

Apr 7, 2014

I am trying to create a vba using only one macro button (excel). I would like for them to enter their names and have their own password that will then insert their signature(pic.jpg) in a specific cell.

I created a certificate in excel and I don't want 12 (number of people) buttons visible. Id rather have a long code. Im not sure if using If and Then and ElseIf is the way to go.

## Search With Multiple Inputs/Outputs

Jun 2, 2008

I am looking to create an excel search with two input and three output values on Sheet 1 that will link to a table on Sheet 2. To help illustrate:

Sheet 1:

The two white cells indicate the two input values, and the three blue cells indicate the three desired output values.

Sheet 2:

I want to enter the two input values (Length and Width), press the "Search" button, and have the corresponding output values (DWG#, Item #, and Tooling #) from Sheet 2 appear in the three output cells on Sheet 1.

## Expense Tracker By Month For Multiple Inputs Then Add Together?

May 14, 2014

I am looking to take the data off of a "detail" sheet and put it to a summary page. I want the summary page to find the capital and expense from "details" sheet by the month on the "details" sheet. Then for every month add all the expenses and capital and put as 2 values per month, Capital and expense, on the summary page. I am not really sure where to begin but have added my excel workbook that I have started.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Multiple Inputs?

Feb 19, 2013

I'm working on a fairly complex spreadsheet where I want to pull conditional formatting into an entire row. I have a column in tab1 where I have a bunch of beer styles listed. On tab2, I have a 2 columns: a complete list of styles with a 'yes' or 'no' in the next column based on certain criteria. What I'd like to do is have the column in tab1 highlight if that style in tab2 has a 'no' in the column next to it.

## VBA Functions - Multiple Inputs And Keeping Track Of Them

Sep 17, 2013

I have several formulas that I use over and over, so I'm creating VBA functions that I can call from a worksheet.

But...when I have multiple inputs going into a function, is there a way to remind the user which input comes next in the same way that Excel does with built-in functions?

For example, when you type in =PMT( Excel brings up the helper text so you know that the order of inputs is (rate, nper, pv, etc....

Is there a way to bring up that same helper text in my own function? So if I have up, down, right, left as inputs and give the spreadsheet to someone else, they can see it's up, down, right left and not right, left, up, down .

## Graph That Consolidates Multiple Inputs From Dropdown Form

Apr 22, 2014

1. I need a template that allows a user to select a location from a dropdown menu (Cell B1 of Example Data tab).
2. Titles in cells C1:V1 and B2:B8 will stay the same.
3. Data inputs within range C2:V8 would change for each location. The idea is based off the location selection from the dropdown menu, different data is shown within the range and available for updates.
4. The chart (see Example Chart) would sum all location inputs in range C2:V8

## VBA Macro To Take List Of Multiple Inputs / Apply To Another Spreadsheet And Return

Sep 22, 2013

I want to create a macro to take multiple inputs from sheet 2, apply them simultaneously to the inputs on sheet 1, take sheet 1's output and list next to the inputs on sheet 2. I want to apply this to a spreadsheet with complicated calculations. Example spreadsheet attached. Related Macros I have will do a similar thing but only take one input at a time. Code as follows.

VB:
Sub x()
Dim r As Range
With Sheet2
For Each r In .Range("A2", .Range("A2").End(xlDown))
Sheet1.Range("A2") = r
r.Offset(, 2).Resize(, 3).Value = Sheet1.Range("C2:E2").Value
Next r
End With
End Sub

## Add New Data To Existing Cell Based On Multiple Selective Inputs?

Apr 1, 2009

I have a spreadsheet of courses required to reach a certification. On this spreadsheet I have listed the number of hours required for each course in one column, and how many hours I have accrued in an adjoining column. Not all the hours will occur at once, so I tend to bound from cell to cell adding hours in small amounts. What I am trying to do is create a macro that will allow me to add to the existing number of hours to the newly accrued hours, without typing over what is already there.

For example…Class 1 requires five hours total, and I have two hours accrued. If I accrue two more hours (for a total of four hours) I want to update cell E2 without going in to this cell manually and changing this number. I would like to enter the additional two hours in a text box or similar function, and have that function update E2. To add to the level of difficulty, there are four levels of class. This means not only do I need to be able to select which class hours need updated, but which level of class. I have attached the spreadsheet I am working with to try to make things a little clearer.

## How To Calculate Sales Based On Partial Cell Content (multiple Inputs)

Jan 15, 2010

I have made a dynamic calculator which will calculate the total sale based on 3 criteria in 3 different cells as follows:-

I would like to derive the sales qty in cell C5 if all the 3 conditions in the range B2:B4 is true.

In this case the sales qty for Style-Colour-MRP combination(9103-PINK-399) should be 6.

I am unable to figure out with the formula for the same....

## Sum Of Lookups

Mar 12, 2007

How can I conditionally total based on a Lookup?

e.g.
Column A shows the item code.
Column B shows the age of stock items as 1, 2 or 3 (years).
Column C has the cost of the stock items.
I want to total the costs for stock items (column C) according to age, so that the totals at the bottom would look something like:
Total stock value for year 1: \$14,537.10
Total stock value for year 2: \$7,657.70
Total stock value for year 3: \$1,773.00

## Lookups But Cut Out All The Numbers

Apr 4, 2014

How could I do a lookup on the following accounts but I want to ignore all the numbers and spaces. For example, in another sheet, I just have ACCRUED PTO and I want to do a vlookup on 601190 601190 5007 ACCRUED PTO.

407200 3044 UPR-STAT SELLER COV F.R.
407300 3047 UPR-GP/ST SELLER COV F.R.
601190 601190 5007 ACCRUED PTO
601150 601150 5033 WAGES OVERTIME

## Using Lookups & IF Queries Together?

Dec 28, 2012

I'm currently working on a side project for work that I believe will save many man hours as at the moment we're using paper and calculators!!! I'm scheduling buys. I've worked out formulas and formats to show how much we should buy and how they should be split (for example for UK purchases we buy x amount and split it 10% 90%). However, the dates of delivery are different. See below:

PORT L'poolPORT HKPORT Portsmouth
1.113-Aug-1206-Aug-1230-Jul-12
1.210-Sep-1203-Sep-1227-Aug-12
2.103-Sep-1227-Aug-1220-Aug-12
2.201-Oct-1224-Sep-1217-Sep-12
3.124-Sep-1217-Sep-1210-Sep-12
3.222-Oct-1215-Oct-1208-Oct-12

Campaign 1 first buy (1.1) I know that my product is sailing from port HK. Therefore I want it that in the 'delivery date' cell, it returns 6/aug/12 (that's the first lot of 10%, and underneath it returns 3/sep/12) which the remaining 90%...2.2).

However, both the campaign number AND port options are variable (using a data validation drop down list). In effect meaning if I choose campaign 2 instead of campaign one, it'll return the dates 27/aug and 24 sep....if I then change the port to Portsmouth, the dates will be 20 aug and 17 sep.

I've attached a quick view of the schedule I've created. The yellow cells are where I want the dates to be returned.

## Lookups In Matricies

Mar 3, 2007

I'm trying to use a state transition matrix in Excel. I randomly generate a
percentage and want to lookup the value in a corresponding table where this value would fall if we were to sum across the row. For example, the first randomly generated value is 13.5% and we are starting in state 6. Therefore, I want a formula that looks in row 6 (starting state) and determines which column (1-6) has the value 13.5% if you sum the values across (in this case the answer is 5). Then 5 becomes the new starting state and so on. Is there a formula or combination of formulas in Excel that can carry out this complex function?

State transition matrix
123456
185.00%10.50%3.10%0.74%0.66%0.00%
28.90%79.00%9.20%1.70%1.20%0.00%
31.00%7.50%73.00%15.00%2.50%1.00%
40.00%1.00%13.00%76.00%9.00%1.00%
50.00%2.00%5.00%6.00%71.00%16.00%
60.00%1.00%1.00%6.00%9.75%82.00%

## Sum Using Lookups And Match

May 22, 2007

I have a master table that has a list of Product Names in column A and the associated product rollup names in column B.

Next, I have a data table that has a list of company names, Product Names (the names are all included in the master list of Product Names), Transaction Type (Sale, Cancel) and Value.

Lastly, I have a data summary template that I built where I want to be able to calculate total values based on the data table and the product rollup from the master table.

I would like to build formulas into the summary template where it looks at the Product Name column from the data table and finds the associated Product Rollup from the master table and then sums all the values for Transaction Type Sale and then sums up all the values for Transaction Type Cancel. The end result would be a Sales Value for Product Rollup 1, a Sales Value for Product Rollup 2, a Cancel Value for Product Rollup 1, a Cancel Value for Product Rollup 2, etc.

## Check Lookups

Jan 28, 2008

I have 2 sheets, First is the Master that contains 2 columns (Item Code and Item Name), The second also contains the transactions for item codes and item names.

I can check all the item names that it's entered according its code using Vlookup for every row...My question: Is there an array formula (one formula) to check that all Item names is correct according to its code in Sheet1?

## Conditional If's And Lookups

May 3, 2008

Here what I want to do.

I have 2 columns A and C.

The A column displays the winning teams every week and column C displays the losing teams each week.

our league has 2 divisions. Now during the regular season schedule we go head to head against our own division and against the other division.

What I would like to do is keep track of win loss record against each division and against the others.

So for exampls if the Cardianls win against the Angels the Cardinals would be in column A and the Angels in column C. The Angels are in our division. (So are the Braves, White Sox, A's). And if the Cardinals beat the Yankees, the Cardinals are again in the A column and the Yankees are in the C column. In the other division are Blue Jays, Mets, Red Sox and Cubs. From that I would like to see the result of NL 1-0 and AL 1-0.

## COUNTIF, LOOKUPS And ROW

May 7, 2008

Sheet 1 has a data entry sheet - with a list of Local Authorities down the left, and criteria against which they are scored along the top. They either score, 1, 2, 0, or 'Unknown.' The order may be changed through sorting.

Sheet 2 is a summary, and I need to count how many 'unknowns' there are for each line.

I can't figure it out. And I am sure it is dead easy. In my defense I have been in bed ill for a week, and my brain isn't firing on all cylinders.

## Sumproduct And Lookups

Feb 21, 2007

I need a formula that combines sumproduct and vlookup. Basically i have a speadsheet with staff names and hours worked in two columns. I need to lookup the staff names to return their cost rates and multiply it by the hours for each individual. However, there may be 20 members of staff so don't want to have to do a formula for each person.

## Lookups Between Sheets

May 15, 2007

I have a player list, from which i have put a sample below:

ALL ROUNDERS W1 W2 W3 W4
Garry Adamson ar 23 2 45 12
Charlie Baxter ar 10 0 23 14
Iqtiwar Chaudray ar 0 0 1 2
Hugh* Doulton ar 0 5 12 10

On the left is the player name and then to the right are their scores for the first 4 weeks. Each team that has entered the league has a tab of its own with the 11 players they have selected on. I would like to just have to update the main sheet and then have a look up in the other tabs on an if the player is ion this squad basis... I have attached an example of the whole player list and an example of a team on the 2nd tab.

## Three Criteria Irregular Lookups

Sep 14, 2009

Without using helper columns, what is the best way to return a value from an array using three criteria from irregular data? The attached sample gives and example.

## Lookups Matching 2 Criteria

Dec 23, 2009

If you look at my attached example. I'd like the date line/columns in Sheet "8002372008" to be populated automatically with data from Sheet "Data".

Is this possible? VLOOKUPs and MATCH are what I was thinking, but I'm not sure how to do it.

I know it could probably be done in VB, but I don't want to have to click on each "800 Number" sheet to update it every time, so that my summary sheets are accurate.
