# Formula Help - Maybe VLOOKUP formula

I want to look at a row that details the number of members per month and then depending on how many members, charge the appropriate fee. My problem is the fees are stepped and for every additional 2500 members the fee increases for the additional members (so if there are 5000 members, the first 2500 will be charged at say \$30 and then the next 2500 will be charged at \$20). I tried using a VLOOKUP formula to caluculate the value but I could not get it to take into consideration the stepped rate, I could only get it to charge the rate for the whole of the members at that bracket rate i.e. 5000 members at \$20 but in fact I need the formula to charge the first 2500 members at \$30 and then the next 2500 members at \$20.
No Members Rate First 2500 30 then 5000 20 then 7500 15 then above 10
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Correct a #N/A error Show All Hide All This error occurs when a value is not available to a function or formula.
1. Optionally, click the cell that displays the error, click the button that appears , and then click Show Calculation Steps if it appears.
2. Review the following possible causes and solutions. Missing data, and #N/A or NA() has been entered in its place
Replace #N/A with new data.
Note You can enter #N/A in those cells where data is not yet available. Formulas that refer to those cells will then return #N/A instead of attempting to calculate a value.
Giving an inappropriate value for the lookup_value argument in the HLOOKUP, LOOKUP, MATCH, or VLOOKUP worksheet function
Make sure that the lookup_value argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) is the correct type of value — for example, a value or a cell reference, but not a range reference. Using the VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, or MATCH worksheet function to locate a value in an unsorted table
By default, functions that look up information in tables must be sorted in ascending order. However, the VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP worksheet functions contain a range_lookup argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) that instructs the function to find an exact match even if the table is not sorted. To find an exact match, set the range_lookup argument to FALSE. The MATCH worksheet function contains a match_type argument that specifies the order the list must be sorted in to find a match. If the function cannot find a match, try changing the match_type argument. To find an exact match, set the match_type argument to 0.
Using an argument in an array formula that is not the same number of rows or columns as the range that contains the array formula
If the array formula (array formula: A formula that performs multiple calculations on one or more sets of values, and then returns either a single result or multiple results. Array formulas are enclosed between braces { } and are entered by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.) has been entered into multiple cells, make sure that the ranges referenced by the formula have the same number of rows and columns, or enter the array formula into fewer cells. For example, if the array formula has been entered into a range 15 rows high (C1:C15) and the formula refers to a range 10 rows high (A1:A10), the range C11:C15 will display #N/A. To correct this error, enter the formula into a smaller range (for example, C1:C10), or change the range to which the formula refers to the same number of rows (for example, A1:A15).
Omitting one or more required arguments from a built-in or custom worksheet function
Enter all arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function.
Using a custom worksheet function that is not available
Make sure that the workbook that contains the worksheet function is open and the function is working properly.
Running a macro that enters a function that returns #N/A
Make sure that the arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function are correct and in the correct position.

### VLOOKUP Formula

Using IF function or filter to generate the membership type and create a VLOOKUP for that..... Or using filter function you could create a pivot and insert the specific formula per type in that.

### VLOOKUP FORMULA PROBLEM

VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet2A2:B20,2,FALSE)

The assumption here is A1 in Sheet 1 is the cell you want to reference, This cell can be pasted - Any problems let me know.

### If/Then Formula

not really
Just create the
formula =if(e1=1,"X",if(e1=2,"Z","")) in cell K1 then
formula =if(f1=1,"X",if(f1=2,"Z"),"") in cell L1 then
formula =if(g1=1,"X",if(g1=2,"Z","")) in cell m1 then
formula =if(H1=1,"X",if(h1=2,"Z","")) in cell N1 then
if you wanted another statement
formula =if(H1=1,"X",if(h1=2,"Z",if(h1=3,"Y,""))) in cell N1
this is nesting the if statement you just keep adding conditions.
What you are asking I have to type this in 600 times
No just do one line and then highlight the cells with the if in it and then select copy from edit menu or right click and select copy
Then click on next 599 cells by clicking on first cell and hold mouse button down and drag down mouse to last 1000 row of cell and right click mouse and select paste. The formulas will alter accordingly as pasted to each cell

You could also use a vlookup statement
you open another workbook look at bottom of worksheet for tabs to add a workbook.
Then you create a table in other workbook
1 cell A1 H in B1
2 cell A2 Z in B2

you would still need to copy the cells down

### H look up

Hi vrusha,

Your right hlookup is very simular to vlookup, the key difference is it searches along the top row of the table, finds the matching data and gives you one of the below cells (depending on how you write the formula), just think of a vlookup on it's side.

The formula works like this:
=HLOOKUP(lookup value, table, row_index_number, range_lookup)

lookup value = is the value you want to match against the table i.e. ABBA

table = the range of cells that make up the table you want to search i.e. A1:D300

row_index_number = the number of rows from the top of the table you want to get the value from, 1 is the top of the table, 2 is directly below

range_lookup = if you want an exact match type FALSE, if you want the nearest match type TRUE

### Horizontal

Not sure if I get your problem. Do you mean the SUM() formula with the row does not work?
That is the simplest solution if you are entering the monthly numbers per month.

If you have all these values and need to sum them up based on the current month, you need to use the MONTH() with the NOW() formulas to get a month offset and use a relative reference for the SUM() formula.

### 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.

### Vloop

Are you referring to the VLOOKUP function in Microsoft Excel?

I love vlookup!

Suppose you have 1 worksheet with song numbers and titles in Row 1, Cols A:B:

Song# Title
123 Love Me Tender
234 Blue Suede Shoes
345 Dixie

Another worksheet has song number and performer in Row 1, Cols A:B

Song# Performer
123 Elvis Presley
234 Carl Perkins
456 Cher

Notice there is NO performer for song number 345 in the 2nd worksheet.

Now in the 1st work sheet, cell C2 insert this LOOKUP function: =LOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 in Col C. You should get a Performer for all songs even though there is not a song number 345 in the performer worksheet.

Help me out Mr. VLOOKUP.

Insert this VLOOKUP function in cell C2 of the first worksheet: =VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B,2,0)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 Col C. You should get the performer names for the 1st 2 songs, but not for 345 Dixie. The result should be #N/A.

That means VLOOKUP could not find a DIRECT match for song 345 in the second worksheet.

That is why I prefer VLOOKUP over LOOKUP.

I have found this explaination of the VLOOKUP parameters helpful:

1. Needle (A2)
2. Haystack (Sheet2!A:B)
3. RELATIVE Col containing result (2)
4. Need DIRECT MATCH ONLY (0)

Hope this helps.
