I have been trying to get this formula or function to work all day

This is for a grade book:
VLOOKUP(Semester grade,Table:table,column2)
VLOOKUP(S9,$S$14:$T$18,2)
S9 is the grade, S14 is the start of the table, T18 is the end of the table, then2 is the column 2. this table is in ascending order 100-90 =A and so on. Am I missing something?

Vlookups are like lookup functions but you can look in a range and specify the column it returns. lookup only looks up in one column.
hlookups are lookups where you can look in a range and specify the ROW that it returns

The VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP functions contain an argument called range_lookup that allows you to find an exact match to your lookup value without sorting the lookup table

What are uses of vlookup n hlookup?


An implementation of the vlookup in Excel could be:
You have an Excel table with student names and their grades.
You wish that you could somewhere in the sheet type a student name, and immediately retrieve his grade (based on the data in the table).
To achieve this, you can use "Vlookup": the function will look for the student’s name in the first column in the table, and will retrieve the information that is next to his name in the second column (which is his grade).

Hlookup is the same excpet it is for data arranged by rows instead of columns.

What is vlookup & hlookup?


1024x768 Normal 0 false false false /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} These are Excel functions for Lookup tables. The purpose of Lookup tables is to bring a value to the table, find the closest (or exact) match, and then return another value.

An example is the federal income tax table. On your tax return you get your gross income and number of dependents, go to the Lookup table, and find your taxable income.

The V in VLOOKUP means that the table is vertical; HLOOKUP has a horizontal orientation.

If you use the Insert Function button in Excel and paste either function, the dialog box will explain each required field separately with examples.

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!

EXCEL VLOOK Function


Just noticed a small syntax problem, try this:
VLOOKUP(S9,$S$14:$T$18,2,0)

I always add the last parameter of "0" to insure that that an exact match is found.

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

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.
