I am using the vlookup function to look up data over several columns. If there is nothing in one column, I would like for it to return a blank cell instead of the 0 it returns now. Is there something else I can put in the formula to do this. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Todd, Best thing to do would be to post the formula that you're using. You could test to see if the vlookup returns a zero and change it to a blank or you may just want to set your page up to not display zeros.

I'm having some trouble with VLOOKUP in Excel 2000 and after extensive Googling i'm none the wiser. We have an Access 2000 database, some data from which I am exporting into an XLS. I'm trying to x-ref this with a monthly Excel (not initially 2000 but later saved in that format) report, with the tried and tested method of adding a column of VLOOKUP(refno, namedtable, 2, FALSE) to link in a column of information from the database to relevant lines in the report. I'm certain i'm doing it correctly, but in some circumstances it seems two cells seem not to equate when they ac...

Hey all, I have a category list of products and then a list of brand names for each product. So, I set up a series of drop down boxes (using Data Validation) for the categories and then a second series dependent which category you pick in the first, for the brand names. HERE IS MY PROBLEM: When I set up the category list I had to create them as One-Word-Names. I tried to set up a lookup table with the real category names (multiple words and symbols), but I can't seem to get the first drop down box to reference the lookup without then screwing up the Data Validation of the second (depende...

Let say you have a table with columns A, B, C, D, E, F and you want to do a vlookup, but not the regular vlookup but one that takes into account values in columns A and B. For instance: A B C D E F Day Tue 2 4 3 3 Day Wed 7 6 8 5 Day Thu 2 1 9 7 Taking the 2nd row, I want to do a vlookup based on Day and Wed instead of just using Day. Is there a function like that or any combination of functions that I can use to do this? You can use sumproduct to do something close to what you want. It is similar to a sumif ...

Can someone walk me through this please? I a workbook that imports a years worth of data from filemaker to be analyzed and charted in excel.

Why can't vlookup use calculated references? One table has its reference values listed like 123-456 (the table from which values must be extracted). The other table has its values listed like 123456 (the table which dictates which values to extract). So I used =SUBSTITUTE to remove the "-" in the first table. Vlookup doesn't seem to be able to use the adjusted reference value in the first table. Is there a work around? Regards, Robin VLOOKUP can certainly use calculated references: =VLOOKUP(LEFT(A1,3) & "-" & RIGHT(A1,3), Table, 2, FALSE) finds ...

I use the VLOOKUP function a lot but was wondering if it were possible to use this when there are more than one cell I want to separately use data from. Currently I have: =VLOOKUP(B1,Sheet3!$A$1:$B$65,2,FALSE) but what I can't seem to do is then take the data from the $C$ column, thus avoiding the $B$ column =VLOOKUP(B1,Sheet3!$A$1:$C$65,2,FALSE) ~ doesn't work as this includes column B. What I have to do at the moment is copy/paste the columns 'C' and 'D' from the 1st sheet to two new sheets so the data is in column B Many thanks Keith (Southend) =VLOOKUP(B1,Sheet3...

When pulling values through from a table array, is there any way that the formatting can be pulled through too, not just the value? (Office 2003) -- Paul Hyett, Cheltenham (change 'invalid83261' to 'blueyonder' to email me) No, a formula can only return a value. If the format applied to the table was conditionally formatted, then you could apply the same conditions to the cell with the formula. Hope this helps.
