When performing a VLOOKUP, it returns the first instance of a match in the the lookup range.

So in the spreadsheet I have, I'm performing a vlookup....and finding a match...and then returning a value 1 column to the right...

What I "need" however is a formula that will accept that there is more than 1 row where the match exists and total all the values for that match.

I vaguely understand array formulas but have not been successful and am looking for some tips ...guidance etc....

I have a list with 8 columns. In the majority of instances, Columns A & B will have duplicate information. I need to be able to search columns A & B & return the information from them PLUS all info contained on the same row's from columns C/D/E/F/G & H. EG:...

My column headings are as follows...

Type Region Contact Phone Email ADD1 ADD2 ADD3

In column A (type) would be the type of contact eg:business/personal/family etc.

So... If looking for family I'd need excel to show me the region, contact, phone, email, add1, add2 & add3 for each family record. Hope this makes sense!

There are over 1000 records i need excel to search through & return matches.

I'm an intermediate excel user at best so finding it complicated. Tried vlookup but that stops when it finds a match & anything else seems over my head.

Column A would be Recipe Numbers, Column B the Planned Total.

I want to search column A for all matching recipe numbers.

Then, any recipes that match, look in column B for the planned totals, adding all incidents where they match.

Then the most difficult part, which just occured to me now.

I only need the Total Planned Total and Recipe name reported once.

Recipe#..........Planned Total

450................100

600................75

620................125

450................50

620................180

450................100

600................200

450................110

I will not be able to sort these lists.

If-Match-Sum? to display:

Recipe#............Total Planned Total

450....................360

600....................275

620....................305

I've researched for the first part... and it seems like Match will only find the first match and not look further? Am I wrong on this?

How to display the results hadn't even occured to me yet, since I was still trying to figure out how to GET the result.

I have a table of data (say Column1 to Column 5) with multiple rows.

Column 1 to 4 will have the lookup values in multiple rows and Column 5 data should be picked up using vlookup or other lookup function.

I managed to somehow bring all these lookup values in (Column 1 to 4) in a single column in another sheet. I am now trying to use some lookup or other functions to match this single column and pick column 5 data in original sheet. Result i am expecting is lookup value in first column and next to it column 5 value.

It is basically a lookup wherein lookup value is spread over multiple rows and columns and result column is fixed. I tried using vlookup, but lookup value column and column number had to change every time when i moved from column1 to 4.

I am using the below array formula in G2 (that I then drag across) to show the score for all the times "mike" appears. I would like to match all the times "mike" OR "red" appears, so that the value in K2 is "99".

=INDEX($A$2:$C$9999,SMALL(IF($A$2:$A$9999=$E2,ROW($A$2:$A$9999)-1,"hh"),COLUMNS($G2:G2)),2)

The table i'm looking up contains 2 rows with a value which matches my lookup value, how do i get the vlookup to pick up both values?

this is what i have:

ACEUSA-0017,730.84

SISTRUINSU-0018,865.69

WARNORAMER-00212,868.59

ACEUSA-00113,948.61

This is what vlookup picks up:

ACEUSA-001 7,730.84

ACEUSA-001 7,730.84

using this formula:

IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(I13,'May 2006 MJ'!$A$5:$B$41,2,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP(I13,'May 2006 MJ'!$A$5:$B$41,2,FALSE))

This is what i need it to pick up

ACEUSA-001 7,730.84

ACEUSA-001 13,948.61

I do need ISNA to take care of #N/A

Worksheet #1:

Column "A" going down (starting at A1 to A5) I have the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 entered in each cell...

Worksheet #2:

In cell A1 is the number "1"

In cell A2 is the number "7"

I want a formula in cell B1 (WS#2) that looks for the number in cell A1 (WS#2) in the range of cells A1:A5 on Worksheet #1, and if it finds the value of A1 (WS#2) in that range of cells on Worksheet #1, it returns the letter Y... if not it returns the letter N

So my result on Worksheet #2 should be...

Cell B1 shows the letter Y

Cell B2 shows the letter N

I have a table where the rows are conditions and the columns are experiment numbers, as an example below:

Experiment 1

Experiment 2

Experiment 3

Hardness

X

X

Solubility

X

X

Density

X

X

The table is fairly large. What I would like to be able to do is use a lookup/formula that will return all the experiment numbers a given condition is tested in. In other words, for a given condition (i.e., Hardness), which columns have an "X". Not sure if that can be done with a lookup or not or if there is another function necessary. I would like to be able to do it without macros though and also have it automatically update if I move the "X" around to different experiments.

I have a huge document that looks like this. This is only one part of roughly 2500 lines

blank

Original Budget

Previous Estimate

Estimate Actual

Actual Costs

[Code].....

My problem is that I need to extract Soft committ and actual cost for each element (this case its TPS658). What really makes the problem for me is that I only want cost for cost place 230, 250, 300, 350 (only 350 shown here). Not the total that is shown in the row for element name.

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".

I'm trying to return the next unique item in the list of partnumbers. The count column indicates that there are that many instances of that part number. I then populate down than many to VLOOKUP the value "count" number of times. The formula I am using to get the MFR code compares the pn to the one above it. If it matches, I want it to return the MFR offset by the one above it for that part number.

Source data: (will alwyas be sorted by part number, then by MFR)

I want the first vlookup part of the formula to return the NEXT MFR code in the source data.

I'm trying to do the next level of a v-lookup. I have a group of data with a text "flag" on certain rows. On my summary worksheet, I'm trying to do a lookup or a nested index function retrun all of the values with the text flag next to it.

I've been playing around with nested formulas and this is where I'm stuck. Here's what I came up with:

=INDEX($D$1:$E$9,(SMALL(IF($D$1:$D$9=$A$1,ROW($D$1:$D$9),ROW(1:1)),ROW(1:1))),2)

This only works for one row and not for the other rows. Maybe I'm going down the wrong path?

I have a giant lookup table with five columns. I have three variables, and I need to find the row in the lookup table where the variables match the first three columns of the lookup table. ie. Find the row where variable 1 matches the value in column 1, variable 2 matches the value in column 2 and variable 3 matches the value in column 3. If this row exists then return the value in columns 4 and 5 of that row. Otherwise, return a zero.

I am trying to enter a value in cell F1 by comparing the values in cells A1,B1 & C1. By using 'if, and, or' functions I can automatically input a figure for a limited number of values in A1 to C1. What I need to do is lookup from a database for say 10 possibilities in A1, five in B1 and 35 in C1 returning the correct number for the combination in F1.

I want to lookup values from one rawdata worksheet and have values appear on another sheet, but using 3 lookup values as the criteria. I cannot do this function with Vlookup as it only takes one criteria. I have looked for similar threads in this forum and came across an Index/Match function, but I cannot get it to work. I am attaching file. The data is in the 'rawdata' worksheet. I want values to appear in 'Input' worksheet, grey area using the 3 criterias (Dept number, GL number, and Seg code number).

I've search several posts and can't figure this out. Have sheet1 with facility number (A) and Description (B), monthly budgets (C-N) and yearly total at O. Each facility has 400+ GL so the only formula that has come close to working is this one: =INDEX('sheet1'!$O$1:$O$7695,MATCH(1,('sheet1'!$A$1:$A$7695=$D8)*('sheet1'!$B$1:$B$7695=G$5),0))

Basically "O" is the yearly number I want, "A" is the facility number and "B" is the Description (which is text). After searching several posts this one returned a result on the first facility, but returned NA on the rest. Also tried CONCENATE function with A&B in sheet1 which are equal to D10&G5 in sheet2. It returned the wrong information, I was looking for "1506Net Sales" and it returned for "1506Net Income".

a while back one of you gave me an awesome formula that pulls data from sheet 2 based on what was typed in A1 and A2 on sheet 1. Well I ran into a snag, is there a way we can add a 3rd match in the formula. See the attached file. I need to pull data from sheet 2 based on what is typed on sheet 1 in cell A1, A2 and A3.

Exp

Sheet 1, report to be printed

A1 = last name

A2 = first name

A3 = month

Sheet 2, data is held here

Need to pull data in column “M”

I have two worksheets, one named Data and one named Index. In column G of Data, there is an index number. In column G of Index, there is a list of special index numbers.

In columns A:F there is information about each special index numbers.

What I need is in Data, if the index number of column G exactly matches the value of a special index number in Index Column G, put the column A:F information for that row in the row with matching index number in Data.

i am trying to do a lookup on a data column (B) which contains time data on a worksheet which is a constantly growing list from a DDE data link macro- the data i want returned is in column A,

so for example

column A, column B

0.8970 13/02/2008 21:58

0.8965 13/02/2008 21:58

0.8990 13/02/2008 21:58

0.8995 13/02/2008 21:59

0.8982 13/02/2008 21:59

0.8983 13/02/2008 21:59

i am looking for the highest and lowest values where the time matches a certain hour of the day, so where another cell on the worksheet 1 equals 22, do a lookup on all the rows which is in time 22:00 and return the max no in column A (0.8983),

and the min in another cell(0.8977)

think my limited excel skills are not up to it i'm afraid despite searching through the forums and trying out a few lookup and max combos as array formulas.

I am wanting to use a vlookup or perhaps an array(?) to bring through multiple cell values based on being the maximum value. So say there are multiple employees (all with unique ids) under one manager (also with unique ID), I want to find the employee with the highest value in a particular column and return that employees details, such as name, employee number and the value itself, which are all in the same row. I have attached a basic example of the data involved.

In the attached sheet, I want to look up values from table (A1:G5) and then for each occurrence of a particular number, return the value in the same row in column H, and sum when there are multiple values (see green shaded area for desired output. For example, the number 8 occurs in E3, E4, and G5. I want to return the sum of the corresponding values in column H (1,5, and 2). I've spent hours trying to work this one out, I'm sure this is probably an array formula, but I can't manage to make it work.

I have a sheet, called "output", in which I need to complete column C "calculated values". I need to complete the table based upon a formula table (which is in sheet "formulas").

For the first row of data, cell C2, I need to take the price per order ($0.25; cell A2) and number of orders (40; cell B2) and copy data to cell B4 and B6, respectively.

Once the data has been copied to to cells B4 and B6 on the fomulas sheet, I need to copy the calculated value in Row N to the output sheet. Note that the value being copied from N can be N11, N12, N13, N14, or N15 (the one that is <> to null).

I have a worksheet where data has been entered from a userform. For each entry, there is a separate reference number in the form of contract number-schedule number-machine type-cage number (e.g. 123-123-ABC-1).

The machien type will not always be known so the user will need to do a search for the contract number-schedule number and then bring up all the possible reference numbers.

For example this could look like:

123-123-ABC-1

123-123-ABC-2

123-123-CDE-1

123-123-CDE-2

I would like this list of all possible values to pop up.

what look up function would work and how I can do this?
