    Adding a match formula to an existing formula

    Hi all

    I was helped previously by DLL with this formula:
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    This formula would pull data from various sheets depending on the user selection in the dashboard (the branch selected). If all branches are selected then it would need to sum all the branches together – I will come onto this as I have a problem with it...

    I now need to add in an additional match function, can anyone help with this please?

    I need it to match cell B67 (on the “calcs” sheet) with Column B on the corresponding sheet (e.g payables/inventory/receivables).

    I have highlighted the cell where I need the formula in orange.

    The other problem I have is that when ALL branches are selected it doesn’t add up correctly despite each branch being correct – why would this be? e.g. if you select branch 1 on the dashboard the forumla returns the correct data however if all is selected it pulls a number in and I dont know where this is from.

    Can anyone look into this please?

    Re: Adding a match formula to an existing formula

    Hi,

    The formula works for all the individual branches but not in total - does anyone know why this would be?

    I notice that when when all is selected it doesnt take into account this new addition (solution posted in post #2) - as it provides the following same data:
    Payables Trade payables -29026
    Payables Capital Creditors -29026
    Payables Other payables -29026

    I dont know what this -29026 is summing??

    Can anyone help with this part of the formula please?

    I am not following... where are you selecting "All" and where are you seeing the -29026 exactly?

    "all" can be selected from the option box on the dashboard sheet. The user can select the different branches also from here. These option boxes are linked to the sheet "calcs".

    The totals -29026 are on the calcs sheet highlighted in orange under the section payables. This may be only on my latest model. Do you need me to upload it again?
