I have a vlookup table to automatically input the population of a county when

I type in the county name. I am looking for a formula that will allow me to

crosscheck the spelling.

My vlookup table is in Column A and contains the name of the counties in

alphabetical order. Column B contains the population for each county.

Due to some fairly odd county names, I am concerned that the input will be

typed incorrectly. Therefore, I am looking for a formula to reference the

typed spelling against the accurate spelling in Column A. I would like the

cell calculation to respond, yes or no, true or false...whatever. I would

need this formula for each typed county.

I hope that is clear enough. If not, please ask.

Thanks!

I refer to a workbook name that changes slightly weekly in a vlookup function located in a different workbook. The portion of the workbook name that changes refers to a week ending date "month-day", e.g. 5-10 or 12-17.

What is the most effective way to deal with renaming the source workbook and also the formulas that refer to it?

Here is a formula that refers to the workbook name.

VB:0,VLOOKUP($C1, 'Indynas2public2010 Loading FLs[Loading FLs by Truck Run WkEnd [B]12-17[/B].xls]AW FLs by Order-BK'! $I$6:$K$15000,3,False)+IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP($C1, 'Indynas2public2010 Loading FLs[Loading FLs by Truck Run WkEnd [B]12-17[/B].xls]AW Shop Bay Master-BK'! $P$7:$Q$3000,2,False)=True),0,(VLOOKUP($C1, 'Indynas2public2010 Loading FLs[Loading FLs by Truck Run WkEnd [B]12-17[/B].xls]AW Shop Bay Master-BK'! $P$7:$Q$3000,2,False))),0),$I1))If you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

I've tried...

=VLOOKUP(RC[-1],INDIRECT("Elective Probability tables!r"&5&C&RC[-3],FALSE):INDIRECT("Elective Probability tables!r"&9500&"C"&RC[-2],FALSE),2)

but I can only get it to return a #ref! error which I think means that the cell reference isn't valid.

Thanks, Paul

information pulled into said cell by a VLookup formula. The information in

my data table are of differing lengths. I currently have to stop working in

my spreadsheet to size the cells by height to visually see all the

information.

I would like to be able to specify the column names eg $A:$K in a cell. And within the vlookup formula, I would like to reference the range back to this cell.

For example,

Cell A1 contain the text $A:$K.

In the vlookup formula in Cell B1, I would like to be able to write:

vlookup (B2, sheet1!$A:$K,3,false).

I would like the vlookup formula to pull the data basedon the column names that I change in cell A1.

Any idea how this could be achieved?

Thanks.

I am getting a syntax error with the following codes . Can someone help please

I am trying to automate the process for using a vlookup formula on a range of data that changes month on month.

The code I have so far is as follows

VB:The number of rows relating to the "PMB" and "COBRA" is likely to change month on month. The purpose of the vlookup is to look for a number from the rows with "PMB" in column A in the rows with "COBRA" in Column A and if found return the value with column L (C12). The data is arranged alphabtecially so that all of the COBRA labelled values are displayed above and the PMB labelled values are below.y = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(Columns("A:A")) With Sheets("Lot 2 Data").Range("A:A") Set found = .Find(What:="PMB", after:=.Cells(.Cells.Count), LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False) End With Application.Goto found, True ActiveCell.Offset(0, 11).Select b = ActiveCell.Row For x = b To y ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-8],R2C4:R[" & b - b - 1 & "]C,9,0)" ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select NextIf you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

When using the formula above I get the formula I am expecting in the first cell, however, I want the table array to remain the exact same for each cell down.

Also when I use b - 1 within the array value it doubles the value of b and bizarrely of I put b - b it returns the correct value of b. Is there a reason that it is doing this?

If I need to provide you with any extra explanation please let me know, any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks

does anyone know hwo to place a vlookup formula in a cell range using macro?

As i have a loop which loops through a cell range using the value in the cell to create the vlookup forumla to be placed in a cell in a seperate sheet. However this birngs an error of "Application-defined or Object defined error"

For Each cell In PPNewIR.Range("A1:A3000")

If cell.Value <> "" Then

PPNewIR.cells(Nrow, 6).Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(cell, PPNew.Sheets("ConvertManual").Range(""), 6, False)

End If

Application.StatusBar = cell.Address

Next cell

If anyone could help that would be great

thanks

jeskit

Edit: i found the solution to that error put data range in which A1:Y3000......However now when i run it i get an error message saying "unable to get the vlookup property of the worksheetfunction class"

I am trying to create a formula that looksup rates for an employee, however the rate will change if that person completes a night shift.

See Vlookup already in place =VLOOKUP($C3,Names!$A$2:$D$69,4,0).

So how do I make the formula look up 2 different, lookup values, with an IF formula? and How?

Hope this is clear.

Look forward to all your help.

6 11 13 4

The table above is a (massively simplified) table to return a number of points for a decathlon/heptathlon event. I know how write a vlookup formula for either male =vlookup(REF,$A$3:$C$7,3)

or female =vlookup(REF,$B$3:$C$7,2)

Is there a way to write a vlookup formula which would select $A$3:$C$7 as the table_array for any male athletes and $B$3:$C$7 for female?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

any help would be greatly appreciate - thanks in advance!!!!!!!

Any help is much appreciated

I have a workbook with two sheets: orders and products. In column "O" of the orders sheet, I need a VLOOKUP formula to be inserted in every cell. Here is what I would like to have in O2:

=VLOOKUP(L2,products!A2:C488,2,FALSE)

And here is what I would like in O3:

=VLOOKUP(L3,products!A2:C488,2,FALSE)

etc.

Here is the VBA code I am using to insert this formula:

Code:

Range("O2").Select For counter = 2 To numRows ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-3],products!A2:C488,2,FALSE)" ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select Next counterHowever, when it inserts the formula in O2, it throws in some extra characters. Here is what ends up in O2:

=VLOOKUP(L2,products!'A2':'C488',2,FALSE)

If I delete out (by hand) those four extra apostrophes, the formula works. Does anyone know how I can fix my code so that those four apostrophes don't appear in the resulting formula?

Please forgive me if I am making this code too complicated or completely screwing it up -- I am just teaching myself VBA using random websites

Thanks,

ie MasterSpreadsheetTestTypeA.xls

MasterSpreadsheetTestTypeB.xls

a user will only pick 1 spreadsheet to type text into when the run a test. I'd then like to be able to open a SummarySpreadsheet.xls to collect all the test data into. Basically they would open the SummarySpreadsheet and type in the Unique TestID Name into column A and then columns B thru X would automatically fill in (based on the data that was typed into the appropriate MasterSpreadsheet...).

On a sidenote, after the user fills in all the appropriate data into the MasterSpreadsheet, they'll be doing a "file, save as" and giving it a unique file name to include the TestID name. How can I get the SummarySpreadsheet to take into account this new filename without having to modify every cell's vlookup formula with the unique file name ? Is there a macro that can be run to take whatever text is in column A and add it to the file name in the vlookup formula ?

Hope I'm as clear as mud.

Thanks in advance for your assistance !

Can someone please advise me on how to search for a reference in a vlookup or using another function; but for the second row down, please see example below.

i.e.

Table:

Sam 1980

Sam 1981

Sam 1982

Sam 1983

The reference "Sam" starts in cell A1 and information i want to retrieve starts in Cell B1 all the way down.

I tried using =VLOOKUP("SAM",$A$1:$B$4,2,FALSE)

It returns "1980" every time, but i need 1981, 1982, 1983 etc when i copy the formula down. Can anyone help?

Many thanks

I have got a problem with copying a vlookup formula.

I have got two lists of numbers in a sheet. with vlookup I can put data behind the first colum. The prblem is that when I copy the Formula #N/A shows up. Please Help me with this.

I have a file that contains a table of information. This information is referenced in other files that are used by different locations.

From time to time, I must insert rows or columns to keep the information updated.

When I do this to the source file, if the destination file is also open at that moment, it seems to "expand" the range in the VLOOKUP formula. But if the destination file is not open, it doesn't change.

An ex. below:

VLOOKUP(CELL("contents",$A12),'[Master Sheet.xls]Sheet1'!$C$3:$AD$213,2,FALSE)

as the formula. Then I go to 'Master Sheet' and insert a column such that the range becomes $c$3:$AE$213

and have the above problem

I have taken off the $ signs to see if that helps and it doesn't. The only time that the formula has updated automatically for me is when both files are open when the insertion occurs.

Thanks for any help.

A2 - John

A3 - Rob

A4 - John

B2 - has a vlookup formula and shows a valuve of 3

B3 - has a vlookup formula and shows a valuve of 6

B4 - has a vlookup formula and shows a valuve of 5

A6 - I want to look up all entries of John in column A and return the total in coloumn B which would be 3+5=8. I have a formula which works fine if the numbers 3, 6 and 5 are just typed in but because they are from a vlookup formula I think this is the reason why it is not working properly. Cna anyone help?

formula changing the "table_array" part of the formula. When the formula is

copyed excell automaticaly changes the "lookup_value" to match the row number

that the cell is copied to. I want it to continue to do that without changing

the "table_array" part of the formula - Thanks in advance

I have a similar question to something that was already posted, however it

is different. Here it is:

I have a work sheet that has actual numbers in the cells of a column and

values from a VLOOKUP formula in another. What I want is to have the values

in the VLOOKUP column turn red if they are less than or equal to the numbers

in the other column, in the same row. I've tried many differnt things, but

nothing seems to work. Is this possible?

If i have the data on the Product monthly wise sales in the form of an array.

jan / feb / mar / apr / may..........

Prod a

Prod b

Prod c

Prod e

.......and so on.

How do i retrieve the value of Product c in the month of Apr ?

This would mean we would require to use hlookup as well as vlookup formulae.

Pls. help.

br, Sk.

VLOOKUP formula. Some of these cells contain a #N/A error. (That's not the

problem.) I want to be able to use conditional formatting to turn the cells

containing #N/A red, but for some reason I can't make it work! Even on cells

that have values instead, a conditional format just won't work.

Is this because I'm trying to do it on VLOOKUPs? Is this an Excel glitch,

or is there something special I have to do?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
