#### Multiple combined formulas ?

```I am not sure what combinations of formula’s are needed to lookup an item,
evaluate multiple results and list the result.

Here is a sample scenario:

ID	Item	Result
1234	Degree	30
1234	Degree	15
1234	Method	Hand
456	Style	Green
789	Degree	30
1023	Degree	15
1023	Degree	10
1023	Method	Foot

I need to be able to lookup the ID number e.g. “1234” in column A, evaluate
all the item responses for 1234 that match, e.g. “Degree” in column B and
then evaluate the results for all the items called “Degree” for ID 1234 and
then if the Result is e.g. 30, record 30 in the cell.

Hope I have explained it well enough.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Not sure!

Is this what you want:

You want to lookup ID 1234 and item Degree and see if there is a result of
30, if so, return 30?

```Biff,

Yes, you are correct.  In some cases the resutl of 30 may not be there I
would need it to return the answer that is there or maybe a "no" or some
indication that it did not find the correct answer, if possible.
Thanks for the help.

Return the answer that is *where* ?

If you're specifically looking  for 1234 Degree 30 and there is no 30 what
result do you want?

```Return the answer that is *where* ?      A: The answer in column C that
contains the responses for "degree".....looking at the original sample, if I
was looking for # "1023", "Degree", "30" in the two "Degree" answers listed
and 30 is not there, if it could report the highest number found  for "1023",
"Degree" (e.g. 15) that would be good, if not, "None" or "False" or some text
answer that would work in the formula would be okay.

Thanks!!!

```See if this does what you want:

E2 = some ID number = 1023
F2 = some item = degree

Entered as an array** :

=MAX(IF((A2:A9=E2)*(B2:B9=F2),C2:C9))

```Wow, I think that will work!  Will go back and try it in my real spreadsheet!!!

Will MAX only work with numbers?  Going back your last response and my
example what if E2 was 1023, F2 = Method.  Is there a way to get it to list
"foot" as a text response?

Thanks!!!!!

Yes, that is correct

>what if E2 was 1023, F2 = Method.

Try this array formula** :

E2 = some ID number = 1023
F2 = some item = method

=INDEX(C2:C9,MATC(1,(A2:A9=E2)*(B2:B9=F2),0))

```It worked on some but..  I need to use a "range of cells" now in another
worksheet in the formula you gave me.  (I know how to select a range from the
other worksheet that I use in other formulas all the time.)  The formula is
giving me a "blank" cell with no answer.

Don't know if it is how I selected the range or in this case there are
multiple E2's with "1023" and multiple F2 with "methods"  and there are
multiple "foot" responses in "C" and some "hand" response in "C" for 1023 &
method.  Trying to figure out which of those variables is causing the "blank"?

Thanks

```I think I need a more detailed explanation of what you're trying to do. Tell
me using your real setup and real data. Tell me exactly where the data is.
Don't use general descriptions like the data is on sheet2. Where *exactly*
on sheet2?

In other words, I need *very specific details* on what you're wanting to do.

multiple selection
How can I select multiple records into a list box? I want that for append identical records (for select records) in another table. Many thanks Florin Use a subform instead of a list box. In a subform bound to a related table, you can append as many rows as applicable. It is possible (but not simple) to use an unbound multi-select list box that is populated in the Current event of the form, and executes Append, Delete, and Update query statements based on the ItemsSelected if they are changed. You will also have to find a way to respond to the user "undoing" changes. -- Al...

Need to have a dropdown list containing multiple rows
I am setting up an form and need to create a dropdown list that will contain 8 sets of data. Each set needs to contain 3 rows of data (name, street address & city/state/zip. The goal is to allow the user to click onto the cell, see the dropdown and select which address set to use. This would then place the data into three rows suitable for mailing. I have never attempted anything like this and am in need of assistance. Thank you. --- Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum.com/ Pat What you ask is easily done using Data Validation drop-down list and a few Vlookups but........Ex...

Multiple domains #6
Hi, Having done some research I have found that it is possible to send and receive email from multiple domains with Exchange 2003. I have a few questions that I would like cleared up if anyone can help. 1. Is it really as simple as configuring a recipient policy for the new domain and then changing the mail record for that domain to point to the proper IP address? 2. If I set up a new account in AD, and need this account to be associated with the second email domain, will the default SMTP email be for the first domain? If so, can I just edit this directly? 3. If I set the default SMTP add...

Combine multiple tables into one
I took over a database in which the last person created a new table for everyday worth of data (ie. Feb-21-08 is named 022108). There are over 100 tables in the single database with the same columns and table attributes, I would like to combine all of these tables into one where I have a Date_Key field in place of the table name. I figured out how to query the table names using the following: SELECT MSysObjects.Name FROM MsysObjects WHERE (Left\$([Name],1)<>"~") AND (Left\$([Name],4) <> "Msys") AND (MSysObjects.Type)=1 ORDER BY MSysObjects.Name; Now I j...

forwarding mail to multiple external addresses
I have a user on our Exchange Server 2003 that wants his email to be forwarded to 2 different external email addresses and not have the original mail stored in his exchange mailbox at all. I can set this up to froward to only one external email address by creating a contact in Active Directory with an external email address and then forwarding to that contact. However, it won't allow me to forward to multiple contacts. Please help as this seems like a pretty common request from several users. I'm not sure, as I haven't tested it before, but you might be able to create a ...

Finding Data in multiple worksheets
Using Excel 2000, how can I find data in multiple worksheets; example: any number between 200 & 299 in 32 worksheets? If you mean you want to find a single number across 32 worksheets, group your worksheets (click on the first, ctrl-click on subsequent (or even shift-click)). Then Edit|Find But I think I'd use Jan Karel Pieterse's FlexFind: http://www.oaltd.co.uk/MVP/ If you meant you wanted to find all 100 numbers (200-299) in all 32 sheets, then I think I'd have a macro search for each number and report the results on a new worksheet.

Compute from a derived formula
Hi I have cells in my XL with values like "2d 3h";since I cannot sum them up, I tried "SUBSTITUTE" the d with *8. For example, if the cell value is 2d it would look like 2*8. Now I would like to just use this value to compute, eventually to get 2*8=16. Any idea how I can achieve this? Thanks hari. yeah get rid of excel and use a database. you can do a lot more powerful stuff with databases Are all your values a single digit followed by single character? Do you need to distinguish between the different letters? Give us some more examples if not, and are there any patter...

show multiple values that add to total in bar graph
Is there a way to show multiple values in a single bar (in a bar graph) that add up to a total (example: 127, 129, 87, 85, 60, 126, 89 add up to 703)? I want a sigle bar that goes to 703 but breaks the single bar down into these segments (preferrably by color showing the smaller segment amounts within the color. HELP!!!! Thanks!

IIF / OR
I want the OnPrint of a report to check three fields and run code if any ONE of the conditions is met: Iif ([MyTextOne]=1 OR [MyTextTwo]=2 OR [MyTextThree]=3) Then RunSomeCode Else RunOtherCode I thought of using Select Case and calling procedures as each condition is met: Select Case Me![MyTextOne] Case is = 1 Call Check2 Case else Stop End Select Check2 () Select Case Me![MyTextTwo] Case is = 2 Call Check3 Case else Stop End select Check3 () and so on......... It will work, but gets a bit too long as the test conditions increase. It gets just as long with nested select case or nest...

Get Label formula with get.formula(selection()) in XL-2007
Dear group, in XL-2003 I can get a label formula with get.formula(selection()), when selection is a datalabel. Trying this in XL-2007, I get a type.mismatch. Any good ideas about this?
