I tried the vlookup with choice of 2 columns (17 in the table of contents)
in a very large worksheet. The formula only worked for the first two
rows. The remaining 735 rows produced "n/a" error messages. I wound up
creating a helper column (16 of the table of contents) but would have
preferred the other formula to keep my worksheet clean. I used the $ sign
in the arrays and then tried to remove them but nothing worked. F9 to see
the formula did not work because the size exceeded the limits. Any ideas
on what else I can try to make the choose function work?

Hello sir! Your Excel-lency, Mr. Mike Girvin! I'm a big fan of your work!
You have a knack of making complicated stuff look easy peasy... It's me
again. I don't know if you're viewing the comments since I understand this
is waaay back and I did not receive a reply on my previous question. I just
need to ask though with regards to PARTIAL TEXT LOOKUP, how do you make
excel search/look up a name from a database by only the first three letter
of the last name from a random list? In other words, how do I make Excel
find the first 3 letters of any name from the list if I don't exactly know
what to put in " " when I use SEARCH?

Hi Your videos are really informative and clear and I've benefitted very
much from it. I'm really a million $ thankful to you for what you upload in
your channel. I've something to ask you. I've a situation where in a table;
same look up value ( Eg: Carlota, Carlota Carlota) repeated three times and
corresponding value in next column is different for each Carlota. For an
argument This table has 2 columns only. I look up Carlota but obviously
Look up function always gives "N/A" in cells. Would you please suggest if
there's any function that can tell me if there's a function that can help
me to find all the different values that a Carlota stands for in a table or
a trick to tackle this situation. Can you also suggest if there's a
function that will tell me how many times a Carlota is repeated in a table
because I fed up using with Ctrl+F.

I have done this and it does work but i have a table with over 20,000 items
and some items might contain additional information that i dont always
know, how can i create a formula that finds the first part of the item #, ,
most of my items are 8 digits long but then also have a space then other
numbers,, example (900134142 120/60) ,or (900134142 24-60), is there a way
or a special formula that will find these first numbers without having to
know the last ones.?

Автор RealSacredCow (1257 лет назад)
I have enjoyed these videos a lot over the years, and still learn something
new with each video I watch. I have a question about something I have been
working on recently. I am in a league that uses different point awarding
scales based on where the person is in the brackets when facing an opponent.

Example 1:
Player A has 15 points
Player B has 10 points

When these players face each other, if Player B were to defeat Player A,
they would be awarded 3 points. Though, if Player A were to defeat Player
B, they would be awarded 2 points. Also, if by chance both Player A and
Player B were to draw in their match, Player B would receive 1.5 points,
and Player A would receive 1 point.

Example 2:
Player A has 9 points
Player B has 9 points

If either of these players were to win, they would receive 3 points. If
they were to draw, they would each receive 1 point.

Is there a way that this could be automated within Excel, using VLOOKUP, or
another function(s) combination?

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.?

How come I can not use Ctrl+F3 another sheet to get NamedRange

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.

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.
