    Multi-lookup

    Hello all,

    I'm having trouble figuring out how to lookup multiple values.

    In the attached file, I have a look up in place to return values from the "data" tab based on the date entered in B4 in the "summary" tab.

    This works fine and I use this method on a larger scale for other sets of data but I now want to return a sum of values for a range of user selected dates.

    On the right hand side of the "summary" tab is pretty much what I'm after. The user will input a from and to date (1-31) and I need a formula that looks up all the data for those dates.

    All help greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks.

    Re: Multi-lookup

    Hello,

    change your data labels in Summary!J7:J9 to be the same text as Data!A6:A8, namely

    Time run
    Breakdown
    Output

    Then use in Summary cell M7:

    copy down.

    The expected result for Output in your sample data is wrong. If you want to sum up days 1 to 5 it should result in 47,500, not 32.5.

    Alternatively, you have some explaining to do as to how to arrive at 32.5.

    cheers

    you could try in m7
    =SUM(OFFSET(Data!B6,,$K$4-1,,$N$4-$K$4+1))

    Re: Multi-lookup

    Please let me know if this is ok
    I had to add in some working rows.
    regards
    Peter
    PS I also changed some of the data in row 13 just to make sure the formula works, so thisis why it is different to what you originally posted.

    Thumbs up Re: Multi-lookup

    Wow!

    Thank you all for your replies!

    Firstly let me apologise for the lack of consistency in the original spreadsheet. I cobbled it together quite quickly so rushed a few things!

    peterjuhnke - thanks for the time and effort with the spreadsheet. This is a good solution but would involve redesigning the data tab and as we have 20 lines this would be quite time consuming!

    martindwilson - this seems to work when I tested it but teylyn got there first!

    Thanks teylyn - this worked like a dream and I've been able to apply the formula to the other lines and fields I need to total - perfect!!

    I've not used match, index or offset functions before so I will be having a play around with these to see if they can help with other problems.

    Thanks again, I'd never have cracked this on my own!
