Consolidate and Lookup

Hi all,
I receive 8 reports monthly, 1 for each area, with the all the activity

for that period. I would like to consolidate the data into one total
sheet. I have a master sheet with all the specialties where I would
like to have all the totals show. The activity will be different each
month so the the number of rows may change. The number of columns is

Below is what I have at the moment... but it cant be re-used as the
range is fixed. It also produces an N/A error if one produces an NA.

$B7 refers to a specialty code.


What is the best way to achieve this

As you are looking for exact matches, you can make the ranges much
larger than you would expect (eg $B$5:$N$100), so that you do not have
to adjust them each time you do this.

A common way of avoiding #N/A is a formula along the lines of:


However, as you have 9 vlookups (or should it be 8 ? - your final one
is repeated), that would be a bit clumsy.

Would it be possible to return the values from the other sheets into
individual columns (which could be hidden) and then to sum these
columns to give you the value you have now? In other words, you would
have this formula in column D (say):


and this in column E:


and so on for the other sheets. A simple =3DSUM(D7:K7) in L7 would give
you the consolidated total, with columns D to K hidden.

Hope this helps.

Dynamic INDEX lookup?
Basically I am trying to run one statement then use the informatio pulled from to complete a second statement. The first statement is: ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 "=MATCH(""StricklandT"",qperiodagentperformance!C[-10],0)" This will result in 206 - which will give me the cells below D206 an A206 The second statement (in theory): ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 "=INDEX(qperiodagentperformance!D206:D13000,MATCH("Agen Summary",qperiodagentperformance!A206:A13000,0)) See the worksheet has a listing of 20 or so Agents and under each agen is their Agent Summary.

Lookup and Count
Dear Experts, Looking for some help I have a list box in cell B3 from where I pick a date that is in the range starting in cell A17, to A41. Each cell from A17 to A41 represent a month, A17 = 01-Sep-03, A18= 01-Oct-03, etc For each month 28 entries, a number from 0 to 10 has to be entered into the adjacent cells, one entry per cell.

Is there any way I can, in Excel, take an IP Address formatted as xxx.xx.x.xx (variable length segments) and output a resolved hostname for it? Also, if I can only do it by visiting someone's web page, can someone point me at one that does allows mass lookups all at once? Thanks in advance, Aaron C...
