Hi +ExcelIsFun

I really like your YouTube videos series.

I am so curious to know about how much time and efforts did you put to make
this kind of videos?

Do you do this full time or do you do it when you have time on weekends?

How much time do you give daily to make these videos? do you make it at
home or you went to some professional studio?

What kind of tools do you use to record these videos?

Do you record and edit this video by ownself or do you hire some company to
do that?

What kind of benefits do you get because of these videos?

How much money did you spend on this and how much money do you generate
from YouTube monetisation?

Is it good idea to make video and give it for FREE rather then writing a

share your tips to make this kind of exclusive youtube channel.

Who should make these kind of videos.?

Автор Rafael Pires ( назад)
Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I got a new job and one of my duties
is evaluate and develop reportings and I was pretty worried about
that...I´m glad I found your channel, it's helping me a lot.

How come I can not use Ctrl+F3 another sheet to get NamedRange
DLBoomerangs? You didn't mention if this trick of Vlookup with Named Range
Trick can only be applied with the same Working Sheet or different sheets.
Also don't i need to use F4 when i select the Range or it don't matter? By

Ok, I have a question for you, and I'm not even sure how to write it out.
:) I'm trying to affinitize a list of ~1,500 project ideas (text field),
using a list of approximately 50 "buckets", which are also text. For
instance, one project idea might be something like, "Use 3D printing for
low volume parts", another idea might be something about an end cap, or a
latch, or whatever. My list of bucket items have things like: 3D printing,
end cap, latch, etc. How do I get the formula to return the appropriate
bucket item (3D printing, end cap, etc.) relative to what's in the text for
a project idea? Thanks!

ok Vlookup might be good for my needs..... but.... there is a stick in the
mud that might make it not usable for me. Let's say I have a table of
data. Strung out on one row across the columns with about 30 bits of info;
each in it's own cell/column on that row. About 300 rows total in the
table. First cell of each row identifies say Boomarang color's that can
vary say blue, red, yellow etc. With V lookup I can pull all the data of
each of the blue boomrangs (of various types, brands etc.) to a new
location where I can deal with Just the blue one's out of the 300+ records
of all the boomarangs. Now when dealing with these Blue ones I will be
changing data in it's associated cell/columns; example cost in one column
and diameter in another, type of plastic used AND dates each of these
records were changed. Here is the stickler... on the fly or end of day?
how do I get this new updated info for all the blue ones back to where the
original/primary data table is kept? Is there a "V-Send it back to it's
home table and location" command :) ?

PS- reason Vlook up is potentially better than just "sorting" the original
table is I find the date's I get recorded in a cell via circular reference
formulas that record dates (Today command) when data changes, *somehow
these dates get changed to "the date the sort was done" instead of keeping
the date that was recorded on the original date the data was changed. I
need these dates for legal reasons. I'm not doing boomarangs obviously.
This is student progress records

* these date's getting changed was happening in OOCalc. Just recently got
Excel 2007 but concepts across the two are strikingly similar and was told
by others Excel would react the same way.

Hope this makes since.

Please help. My boss created a calendar in excel where she inserts staff
name under appropriate date and time she is to meet with them. Then she
has a separate spreadsheet with list of staff name, where she checks them
off when they have scheduled their monthly meeting/eval. So that instead
of going through the calendar she can go to the list and locate who has or
hasnt scheduled for the month yet. She either updates one or the other. Im
supposed to make sure that all staff meet with her on a monthly basis. So I
sit here trying to match the spreadsheets(list to calendar and vice versa)
and by process of elimination figure out who still hasnt had their monthly
meeting. Then I have to hunt them down. So... what can I create in excel
that would help me solve my problem? What formula can I use that would do
the matching up for me? Ive tried the formulas that you have shared but
its not working for me. Please help! I cant go another year spending
hours matching names...Desperate. Thank you!!!

Автор Tyler Schaner ( назад)
First off, great video! Extremely helpful.

As for my question; regarding duplicate values in the "lookup_value" the
vlookup will only register the first value it finds, is there a way to get
all values?

Example: my lookup_value are dates (3/6/2015) and my col_index_num are
dollar amounts and I'm trying to add all sales on 3/6/2015.

It currently is registering the first sale 3/6/2015 however the subsequent
sales are not being added to the grand total. Having 2 look up values
wouldn't work because there are duplicate sale totals (i.e. both
lookup_value's are 3/6/2015 & both col_index_num's are $160) They need to
be separated to denote separate transactions.

Thank you in advance!!

Автор Handoko Liam Rianto ( назад)
Hi, I just realized all this time I've been using the wrong lookup
function, I keep using LookUP() function for a vertical table everytime I
have new values I have to update the table in alphabetical order. However
with Vlookup I dont' have too. Any disadvantage of Vlookup I need to be
aware of? Thanks.

Автор Gareth Reagan ( назад)
Regarding using CHOOSE to work with multiple tables, if there are many
tables to choose from would it be more efficient to name the ranges of each
table then use INDIRECT in the VLOOKUP second argument to build the name of
the correct table and then return the array of data? e.g. Name data range
in the 3 tables tblABC, tblEDR and tblEDS, then use
VLOOKUP(B4,INDIRECT("tbl"&A4),2) in your example 17.

can we extract it?

I love these videos, but I can't seem to find the help I need with my
Vlookup. I have a list of accounts all starting with the same prefix, and
different suffixes (ie: 6000-100, 6000-215, 6000-350, etc.). I need to be
able to do a vlookup so that it returns the values if they contain the
prefix I'm looking for. I've done the vlookup using the prefix and the
wildcard, but if I repeat the formula down, it is just returning the first
value in the list (6000-100). How can I get it to return the values that
are listed with the desired prefix? I cannot separate the column so I have
to be able to read it as is. Any help/advice is GREATLY appreciated!!

Question - what if I am using VLOOKUP to get the cost of an item, but then
later on the cost of the item changes. Do I need to create a whole new
price column, or is there a way to change the item cost without affecting
previous data? Take a store front for example. I use VLOOKUP to populate
the cost of a "chair". Later on, the price of the chair goes up. If I
update the item cost field, any sales I recorded previously will then
update as well. Is there a way to use VLOOKUP, then lock the field so that
it won't update when I change the item price later on? Hope this makes
sense. Thanks for a great video!

Автор MrSarky1992 ( назад)
Hy! I hope you are reading this. So immediately when you were talking about
the Partial Text and MID function I started to wonder that "okay, but what
if that ID is not always 3". I swet blood but I came up with this solution:
- First: change the VLOOKUP table ID column to text with text to column.
- Second: use this monster:

It's in hungarian, I believe that the exact version in english is:
It's ugly as hell but believe it or not it's actually working!

Love ya!

=VLOOKUP(A15,VTable,4,0), but it resulted as "N/a" if I select the whole
table (VTable). But if I do it without "Boomerang Name Column that means

I wonder if you can help me please.
I have an excel workbook with just over two hundred sheets. Each sheet is a
patient with their various blood results. Unfortunately the order of blood
results is not the same in each sheet. For example; “liver enzyme” in one
sheet may be in column “D” and in another sheet it may be in column “K”.
Is there a formula that can find the column with the heading “liver enzyme”
and then look for the highest value in that column? And if there is such a
formula, can I apply it to the whole workbook rather than separately to
each sheet one-by-one?
I would be most obliged if you could help me with this matter
Best wishes
