## Value search within range (INDEX/VLOOKUP)

I have unfiltered range of values, they act as a key indicator in finding needed value result.

In search box I have three variables :**state, item name, value**. My goal is to find **result** based on these inputus.

Have tried INDEX LARGE, but it worked only with sorted values. It seems, that the problem occurs only with unfiltered results, but it's not a solution.

Values I will be looking for, 9 out 10 times falls within these ranges (not exact match).

Sorry, I misspelled it. Result shuold be **4.38**

Example: If entered CA/CAR/250001 it shuold return **4.38**.

You can use SUMIFS() with MINIFS() as criteria

=SUMIFS(D:D,A:A,G2,B:B,G3,C:C,MINIFS(C:C,A:A,G2,B:B,G3,C:C,">="&G4))

One Note: This assumes that the combination of State,Item,Value are unique.

If one does not have access to MINIFS one can use AGGREGATE in its place:

AGGREGATE(15,7,C2:C17/((A2:A17=G2)*(B2:B17=G3)*(C2:C17>=G4)),1)

**Excel formula: Lookup value between two numbers,** To lookup values between two values and return a corresponding result, you can use The LOOKUP function does an approximate match lookup in one range, and with dates and times, lookup values with VLOOKUP and INDEX & MATCH, � With VLOOKUP, we can use the range values in column D to assign the letter grades in column E to all the actual exam scores. The VLOOKUP Formula. Before we get into applying the formula to our example, let’s have a quick reminder of the VLOOKUP syntax: =VLOOKUP(lookup_value, table_array, col_index_num, range_lookup)

**Excel formula: Two-way lookup with VLOOKUP,** However, you can also create a dynamic column index by using the MATCH H2 supplies the lookup value for the row, and H3 supplies the lookup value for a range that spans the same number of columns VLOOKUP is using in the table.

Here is one way of doing things:

Formula used in `G4`

translates to:

{=INDEX(D2:D9,MATCH(G1&G2&LARGE((C2:C9<=G3)*(C2:C9),COUNTIFS(C2:C9,">"&G3,C2:C9,0)+1),A2:A9&B2:B9&C2:C9,0))}

Note it's an array formula and should be entered through CtrlShiftEnter

**INDEX & MATCH in Excel,** The Excel MATCH function searches for a lookup value in a range of cells and returns the relative position of that value in the range. The syntax� =VLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,col_index_num,range_lookup) What this means in basic terms is “find me a specific cell within a table of data where a certain criteria is met”. This is such a powerful function that can be used to speed up work in so many different ways.

**Complete Guide to INDEX & MATCH for Flexible Lookups in Excel,** The VLOOKUP function has to include all the columns in your range even if in- between columns aren't needed. INDEX and MATCH only requires the return value� You can then use a MATCH function to look for the value TRUE within the range returned by EXACT (lookup_value, lookup_range). The final lookup formula is an Excel Array Formula, so you need to press Ctrl+Shift+Enter after entering the formula. {Ctrl+Shift+Enter} = INDEX (result_range, MATCH (TRUE, EXACT (lookup_value, lookup_range),0))

**How to return a value if lookup value is in a range,** Explaining INDEX+MATCH in cell D10 Quickly lookup a value in a numerical range. You can VLOOKUP of three columns to pull a single record. INDEX-MATCH or VLOOKUP to return multiple values in Excel When you want to look up a value in a table based on another cell, you can use VLOOKUP function. But there is a problem with this function. It returns only one result even if more meet the criteria.

A. When I use the VLOOKUP Range based formula I think of it returning the largest pre-defined range value that is less than or equal to the input value. B. The VLOOKUP Range example for the Sales Incentive situation above can be extended to provide additional capability and flexibility. Consider the following three columns: 1.

##### Comments

- will value be an exact match?
- You could have an extra column concatenating A,B,C and then vlookup that column wherever you need.
- You would need to sort your data if
*"not exact match"*is needed. - That's almost perfect. But due to my error in question, 250001 shuold return 4,38. Any suggestions ? I have tried, but I'm unfamiliar with Aggregate.
- You would want to change the
`15`

to`14`

in the first criterion in the AGGREGATE and change the`(C2:C17>=G4)`

to`(C2:C17<=G4)`

- You do not need the helper:
`=INDEX(D:D,MATCH(MINIFS(C:C,A:A,$I$1,B:B,$I$2,C:C,">="&I3),C:C,0))`

But you do not take into account the matching again on A and B so it will return false positives if there are different A and B in the list and a distance is the same. - @ScottCraner Ah damn you are right but I could take account in the helper column
`=IF(OR(C:C-$I$3<0,A:A<>$I$1,B:B<>$I$2),1E+99,C:C-$I$3)`

and then it works because all the others will be`1E+99`

. - Problem is, I'm looking for values within the range.
- Correct, my answer was out before that was clear. Will update if I get the edits done, or will delete when I don't ;)
- it works good, but I misspeled the need I had. It shuold return 4.38
