My workbook consists of 2 sheets, a quote and a pricelist. The pricelist onsists of Column A - product, Column B - Price, Column D - product, Column E - Price, Column G - product, Column H - Price. In the quote sheet i've created a VLOOKUP to search within the pricelist sheet, but cannot get the formula to search column A, D and G to find the correct product's price. Please help.

You probably need to organise your pricelist sheet so that you only have 2 columns, product and price. If this doesn't fix you, please provide the syntax of your vlookup code.

I’m trying to create a vlookup formula cell F2 that will look up the merchandise code in E2 and display the name using column K and L. Look for wpexact match


create an additional sheet in worksheet at the bottom of worksheet is a +
add a sheet put each merchandise code in each row going down the column worksheet.
in the next row put the name beside the matching code.
then when finished sort on both columns using the merc, code to sort ascending.

code_lookup1-lcxufp0edjxqrfkkn22ib0r3-5-0.jpg notice in the next picture the addition of $ in the row
this is done to allow you to copy down the formula and leave the reference array the same

code_lookup2-lcxufp0edjxqrfkkn22ib0r3-5-2.jpg look at bottom of spread sheet to see additional sheet being used called code to create the array for the look up. With more array rows just modify the formula to say =lookup(a2,codes!$a$1:$b$200)
lookup will give you a text answer where as vloopup will give a numerical value !

Add 20% uplift price to a pricelist in an excel spreedsheet


lets say you have the column B with the prices. Got to column C right beside the first price cell (I'll take B2 as first cell for example) which is C2 and type
=1.2*B2

Copy this formula in the column C all the way down to the last price Cell. That will give you all the updated prices.

Before you delete the column B where all your old prices are you need to do one more thing. Select the entire C column (new prices) go to edit and click on copy. Before you click anywhere else go back to edit and click on paste special and select value. This will change the formula cell you have created a minute ago to a value cell. Now you can delete the old prices. Good luck :)

How to use vlookup in openoffice using different sheets


=VLOOKUP(A2;Sheet1.$A$3:D27;2;0)

The cell I created this formula in was Sheet 3 Cell C9 - to show the different sheets
A2 is the cell I want to look up
Sheet1.A3:D27 is the range of cells that contains the data I want to return, The first column relates directly to cell C9 is Sheet 3. I locked the first cell in my range as I wanted to apply the same formula across other cells hence the $
2 is the number of the column that has the data I want to return, I had a choice in this formula of 4 columns
0 is the value to complete the formula

LOOK UP AND ALLOCATE


Hi,
Could you write the column names from both the sheets seprately, and one data eg. that you need. It would be easier to understand the problem.

Excel formula


I'm assuming you'd like to assign a numerical value to cardinal references (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.).

Best way to do this is to create a quick lookup table on a separate sheet of the same .xls document. Down at the bottom of the page, click on Sheet2 and create a quick table where column A has 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. and column B has your values.

Now click back to Sheet1 where your data is and in A2 put this formula:
=VLookup(A1, Sheet2!$A$1:$B$x, 2, FALSE)
Note: replace the lower case x in the formula above with the number of the last row of data in your lookup table on Sheet2.

You can copy and paste this formula down the column to calculate your other values.

Hope that helps!

HELP with macro config


Hi Hss Holdings,

The easiest way to do this is to use a formula called vlookup. You need to have the raw data some where in the workbook, but it can be a separate sheet. Put all the raw data in a table, make sure the account number is on the furthest left column, then start entering the formulas

vlookup(value_to_find, table_to_check, column_index_number, range_lookup(true/false))

value_to_find = the value you want to find on the left most column of the table
table_to_check = the table you want to find the data from
column_index_number = the column number of the data field you want to return into this cell, 1 = the left most column.
range_lookup = false for an exact match, true for the nearest match

Say the table is on sheet2 between A1 and E300

B15 is whatever you type, so no formula needed here
B12 =VLOOKUP(C1,Sheet2!A1:E300,2,FALSE)
G12 = B12 =VLOOKUP(C1,Sheet2!A1:E300,3,FALSE)
etc

Lookup,s


If you can move your name column (C) to the first column, you could leverage the VLOOKUP formula pretty easily.
To do this, do the following:
1) Move the C Column to be the A Column, shifting all other columns to the right.
2) (optional) Insert a new row at the top of the sheet (to hold the formula & seach value)
3) Use A1 as your search field.
4) In A2, enter the following formula:
=VLOOKUP($A$1,$A$2:$C$6,3,)

Describing above parameters, in the formula:
$A$1 -> the search field (name your looking for).
$A$2:$C$6 -> The table/grid you wish to search and return values from. The left most column (A) must contain the values to be searched.
3 -> is the column number (A=1,B=2,C=3, etc) within the table/grid to return.

If you cannot make the name column your first (A) column, there are more complex ways to do this. For instance, create a new sheet which redisplays the info in the structure easier for this method, and perform the VLOOKUP on that data. Other options might exist in creating a complex formula that would get you what you want.
Also, if you can sort column A (names) it would find results faster, if your data set is large.

Vlookup


Hi Ralph, On the first table If the name is in column A and dept is in B. Suppose the new names are in column D here's the formula =vlookup(D1,A:B,2,0) Note a few things - 1. You will only receive the 1st departament. 2. In case that the name in D doesn't appear in A you'll get N/A. This can be solved using the following formula: =if(type(vlookup(D1,A:B,2,0))=16,"",vlookup(D1,A:B,2,0)) Let me know if there's anything else. D.
