I want Excel to lookup a value in a table and return each row it finds that value in. As an example: Lookup Value: Ford Lookup Table: A1: Ford B1: Focus A2: Chevy B2: Malibu A3: Chevy B3: S10 A4: Ford B4: Ranger Results Table: A1: Ford B1: Focus A2: Ford B2: Ranger What I don’t want is: A1: Ford B1: Focus A2: B2: A3: B3: A4: Ford B4: Ranger In other words, I don’t want a bunch of blank rows in the new summary table. What function(s) can I use to create my summary table?

Hi Joe, have you tried using AutoFilter? If you particularly need the results in a seperate table, follow this. Assuming your lookup table is in Sheet1 and your results table will be in Sheet2: Put your lookup value in Sheet2!A1, then in Sheet2!B1: =IF(COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,$A$1)>=ROW(1:1), INDEX(Sheet1!$B$1:$B$50,LARGE(INDEX((Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50=$A$1)* (ROW(Sheet1!$B$1:$B$50)-CELL("ROW",Sheet1!$B$1:$B$50)+1),), COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,$A$1)+1-ROW(1:1))),"-") in Sheet2!A2: =IF(COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,$A$1)>=ROW(2:2),$A$1,"-") Copy Sheet2!B1 to Sheet2!B2, then copy Sheet2!A2:B2 down as far as required.

Normally a pivot table would work. I didn't mention in my original post that the data that I need to summarize will be imported into Microsoft Streets & Trips. The example I gave was an oversimplification of what I'm doing. I really have a list of locations and their corresponding longitude / latitudes that Streets & Trips will display on a map. The import feature is not very fancy and can not handle things like filters / pivot tables. Thanks for the suggestion though, it would work if I didn't have to use the data for importing.

Steve, Normally AutoFilter would work. The example I gave was an oversimplification of what I am doing. The summary table I am trying to create will be imported by Microsoft Streets & Trips. The data I am working with is actually a list of locations with their respective longitude / latitude. Streets & Trips can't handle filters and pivot tables. Therefore there is a need to create a new separate table to use for the import process. To add a few questions to your original answer (which worked by the way, thanks)... 1. How do I show more columns in my new summary table? 2. How do I add a second value for Excel to lookup? Once again, thanks for your help.

Ok here goes... (Put your list of criteria in Sheet2!Z1:Z10 for this example - obviously you can change that reference to whatever you need.) In Sheet2!A1 =IF($Z$1="","-",$Z$1) in Sheet2!A2 =IF($A1="-","-", IF(COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,$A1)>COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,$A1),$A1, IF(MATCH($A1,$Z$1:$Z$10)=COUNTA($Z$1:$Z$10),"-", INDEX($Z$1:$Z$10,MATCH($A1,$Z$1:$Z$10,0)+1)))) in Sheet2!B1:B2 =IF($A1="-","-", INDEX(Sheet1!B$1:B$50,LARGE(INDEX((Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50=$A1)* (ROW(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50)-CELL("ROW",Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50)+1),), COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,$A1)+1-COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,$A1)))) Copy A2:B2 down as far as required, then copy B2:Bx to C2:Cx (or, for other purposes, as far across as required). I suspect these could be simplified further, especially if that second one was re-created as an array formula (which I prefer to avoid where possible), but my eyes are starting to itch, so I'm off to bed.

Slight amendments: the first MATCH in the second formula should have ,0 at the end, and using SMALL rather than LARGE (with slight change to the final argument) may make the third formula a little more readable. =IF($A1="-","-", IF(COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,$A1)>COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,$A1),$A1, IF(MATCH($A1,$Z$1:$Z$10,0)=COUNTA($Z$1:$Z$10),"-", INDEX($Z$1:$Z$10,MATCH($A1,$Z$1:$Z$10,0)+1)))) =IF($A1="-","-", INDEX(Sheet1!B$1:B$50,SMALL(INDEX((Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50=$A1)* (ROW(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50)-CELL("ROW",Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50)+1),), COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,"<>"&$A1)+COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,$A1)))) "Steve Dunn" <stunn@sky.com> wrote in message news:FDD2C883-BA41-4262-B959-184DD247EBA2@microsoft.com... > Ok here goes... > > (Put your list of criteria in Sheet2!Z1:Z10 for this example - obviously > you can change that reference to whatever you need.) > > In Sheet2!A1 > > =IF($Z$1="","-",$Z$1) > > > in Sheet2!A2 > > =IF($A1="-","-", > IF(COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,$A1)>COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,$A1),$A1, > IF(MATCH($A1,$Z$1:$Z$10)=COUNTA($Z$1:$Z$10),"-", > INDEX($Z$1:$Z$10,MATCH($A1,$Z$1:$Z$10,0)+1)))) > > > in Sheet2!B1:B2 > > =IF($A1="-","-", > INDEX(Sheet1!B$1:B$50,LARGE(INDEX((Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50=$A1)* > (ROW(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50)-CELL("ROW",Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50)+1),), > COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$50,$A1)+1-COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,$A1)))) > > > Copy A2:B2 down as far as required, then copy B2:Bx to C2:Cx (or, for > other purposes, as far across as required). > > I suspect these could be simplified further, especially if that second one > was re-created as an array formula (which I prefer to avoid where > possible), but my eyes are starting to itch, so I'm off to bed.

Hello, I created a Pivot Table in an Excel file sent to me by a co-worker.

Is there a way to determine what the cell height is in Pub 2002? I know I can change it by dragging but I'm rather anal - I want to make all of them the same. -- The problem with resting on your laurels is that eventually you are sitting on dead branches. JoAnn What you do is select the whole table and say enter font size 16. Now when you go to make the Table smaller, the cells will only go to that point size. Consequently they will now all be the same height. You can now select the whole table again and change it to the point size of the font you want to use. Don't forget ...

Is there a way to return the cell reference, or column/row coordinates, of a cell within an array or table by providing lookup criteria? Perhaps something like this: For a table of value in A1:E10 F1: (the value to find) G1: =ADDRESS(MAX((A1:E10=F1)*ROW(A1:E10)),MAX((A1:E10=F1)*COLUMN(A1:E10))) Note: Commit that array formula by holding down the [Ctrl][Shift] keys and press [Enter]. That formula returns the address of the 1st cell containing the value in F1, or #VALUE! if there is no match. Am I on the right track here? *********** Regards, Ron XL2002, WinXP-Pro "Travis" ...

Is there any way to make an advanced lookup the default lookup? so you don't have to always choose that option when doing a lookup? Thanks for any help. Tracey D Advanced lookups ARE the default unless you've done something to make it now so. There isn't any way to "choose" the option when doing a lookup that I know of unless you have some type of customization (easy to do) that would give the user an option. patrick dev support -- This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

I am trying to run a pivot table report from an access database and I cannot get the pivot table to sum. It will show a count, but not a sum. When I choose the sum function, I get zero. I have used pt but this is the first time that I have had a problem and I am wondering if it has something to do with the way the database was set up in access. PB Most likely the numbers are brought in as Text. Ont the sheet in which they reside, format an empty cell as General. Copy that cell and select the data. Paste Special>Add>OK>Esc. Data should now be real numbers. Gord Dibben Excel...

Dear All, Can anyone show me how to call an existing GP employee lookup from a button of a modified form through VBA code.

One doing the vendor lookup - one user sees the 'show details' information upon lookup; other user sees the vendor list and needs to clik on the show details - how do you get the show details window to be the default option you see.

I have a form with subform working but with one issue - when I enter data into a row I start on the next row, but get error about duplicate key. I press the escape key, it clears the data I just tried inputing, and it updates the key field. The key field causing the error uses this in the default value property field- =Nz(DMax("SongID","MusicOnPC_Songs"),0)+1 Is there something missing to make it update after I tab out of the last field for that row, and move into the next row? try removing the expression from the DefaultValue property of the SongID field. instead, ...

I am trying to label my bank info that I import into Excel. I have a column with the charge amount and a column with the recipient. I think a lookup table would work for this, but I need to have it check for wildcards. For example, the grocery chain is numbered here, so one might be GROCER 5454 and one may be GROCER 8724, so I need the function to look for GROCER*, right? Also, if it does not fit any category, how can I get it to use "Other"? Do I make that one just "*"? Mine is not working very well. Maybe my syntax is wrong. Any ideas? TIA Is there anyway you can st...

Hello all, I am kinda new to Exchange and was wondering if there was a function built into Exchange 2000 that would "look" at the source domain of the email message and then perform a "reverse" DNS lookup to verify that the domain actually exists and if it doesn't then have Exchange discard the email without sending an NDR? Is this possible strait out of the box? It seems like I remember iMail gateway having this feature. I am trying to filter out some of the spam that fills up my users inboxes. Thanks in advance.
