    VLOOKUP nTH VALUE

    Hello,

    I am trying to find the 5 projects with the largest amount of hours per person (engineer). After I have found the top 5 projects by hours, I want to pull the project name but the problem that I'm running into is when there are more than one project with the same Project Hours. Since I am using vlookup, only the first value will return for each of the same hours. For instance, Order 1 & 2 have Project Hours of 140 and both return a Project Name of No Assigned Project Number. The second value should read Project Number 2 but I'm not sure how to do this with vlookup.

    I have attached multiple images showing the equations used in the cells.

    Thank you in advance for your help in solving my situation.

    Best regards,
    Brandon

    Welcome to the forum.

    Will you please attach a small sample Excel workbook? We are not able to work with or manipulate a picture of one and nobody wants to have to recreate your data from scratch.

    1. Make sure that your sample data are REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired results are also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential data is removed or replaced with dummy data first (e.g. names, addresses, E-mails, etc.).

    4. Try to avoid using merged cells as they cause lots of problems.

    Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment (it hasn't worked for years, and despite our repeatedly asking the technical team who own the forum to fix it, they can't be bothered to do so), so to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

    Please pay particular attention to point 2 (above): without an idea of your intended outcomes, it is often very difficult to offer appropriate advice.

    Hello,

    I have attached a sample project for manipulation. Please note that the cells highlighted yellow on the Resource Maps sheet contain notes stating what I need this cell to state.

    Please try at D4
    =IF(C4=0,"N/A",INDEX(INDIRECT("'"&E4&"'!"&"BI:BI"),AGGREGATE(15,6,ROW(Z$1:Z$150)/(INDIRECT("'"&E4&"'!"&"BH1:BH150")=C4),COUNTIFS(C$4:C4,C4,E$4:E4,E4))))

    Another way using different formulas in the Engineer# sheets.

    First right click on BI, then insert a new column. Merge BI2 and BI3 to match the format of the other columns, then add this formula to the merged cells and fill down.

    Repeat this for all of the Engineer # sheets.

    Then change the formula in Resource Maps D4 to

    and fill down.
