    Indentfying a number between field

    Hi all,

    I need a formula that looks at a section id say UW2022 in one field and a number which represents that say in another field next to it 300. Then i want it to look at another table lookup which says UW2022 in one field and next fields on that line the values between that section id say field 1 100 and field 2 400. So it would then return it as a true statement that 300 was between that range for UW2022 100-400

    Welcome to the forum.

    Excel 2008??? Really?

    You will need VLOOKUP with the approximate match flag.

    There are instructions at the top of the page explaining how to attach your sample workbook.

    The data is completely different ... Wrong workbook???

    Look, if you want help, you need to get this right. I am afraid I do not have either infinite amounts of time or patience.

    Of course it can, but there are still issues with your sample data.

    Excel 2016 (Windows) 32 bit

    7
    A34/D/01

    900

    Sheet: Lookup

    Why is there a missing section for the second code? 600-800???

    That works but it saying every line is S. It first start to kick in at rows 45-62 as that is the first line of the look which has the values between 200 -300 then it should kick in again the values are between 400 -422

    Because there is not a s occurance between 600-800 so it would come back as n/a on the raw data sheet where there is a number range between 600-800

    That works and picks up the first line of the lookup which is shown further up but then identifies every number value between 200-300. The next should be 400- 422 and the next should be a new section id A34/D/01 0-100. Basically it should look at the section id to the two values in the lookup then it should but a" s" between those numbers value within that range

    Right that works which is brill however the lookup will be a long list of different Section ID currently it is only picking those in the example I sent. What do we need to tweak so it expands the search for the full lookup list and does the same process and identifies the between values and adds an s next them. I really appreciate your time and will save me a load of hours manually doing this

    Re: Indentfying a number between field

    You would need to change the row number of the range from 7 to whatever is the largest row in the full lookup list.
    For example if the actual lookup list has 50 rows, including the column headers, then the formula could be modified to read:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    If the lookup list is dynamic then convert it to a table and the formula will change as rows are added.
