Answer: Vlookup with Data Filter
Hi Wayne!
Yes, it is possible to use the data filter to select a value and have it appear in column B4 using the Vlookup formula. Here are the steps to do it:
Now, to use the data filter to select a value, follow these steps:

Vlookup with Data Filter
Not using =vlookup().
=vlookup() will find those matching cells in that lookup table no matter if any rows are hidden. But maybe you could "add" the same filtering rules into your formula. Saved from a previous post: If you want exact matches for just two columns (and return a value from a third), you could use: =index(othersheet!$c$1:$c$100, match(1,(a2=othersheet!$a$1:$a$100) *(b2=othersheet!$b$1:$b$100),0)) (all in one cell) This is an array formula. Hit ctrlshiftenter instead of enter. If you do it correctly, excel will wrap curly brackets {} around your formula. (don't type them yourself.) Adjust the range to matchbut you can only use the whole column in xl2007. This returns the value in othersheet column C when column A and B (of othersheet) match A2 and B2 of the sheet with the formula. And you can add more conditions by just adding more stuff to that product portion of the formula: =index(othersheet!$d$1:$d$100, match(1,(a2=othersheet!$a$1:$a$100) *(b2=othersheet!$b$1:$b$100) *(c2=othersheet!$c$1:$c$100),0)) Wayne wrote: I use a Vlookup Formala for B4 The range is A10:M2000.I have a Data Filer on colume 1.My question is is it possibl to use the data filter to select the value and it will appear in colume B4.Thanks in advance Wayne  Dave Peterson

Vlookup with Data Filter
Assuming that A4 contains the lookup value, try the following formula
which needs to be confirmed with CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER, not just ENTER... =VLOOKUP(A4,IF(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET($A$10:$A$2000,ROW ($A$10:$A$2000)ROW($A$ 10),0,1)),$A$10:$M$2000),2,0) Adjust the column index number accordingly. Hope this helps!

If I understand what you are saying, (and I think I do)
here is a nice UDF written by Stephen Bullen that I use: Paste this into a Standard module and in the worksheet Cell B4 just enter =filterCriteria(YourRange) Function FilterCriteria(Rng As Range) As String 'By Stephen Bullen Dim Filter As String Filter = "" On Error GoTo Finish With Rng.Parent.AutoFilter If Intersect(Rng, .Range) Is Nothing Then GoTo Finish With .Filters(Rng.Column  .Range.Column + 1) If Not .On Then GoTo Finish Filter = .Criteria1 Select Case .Operator Case xlAnd Filter = Filter & " AND " & .Criteria Case xlOr Filter = Filter & " OR " & .Criteria End Select End With End With Finish: FilterCriteria = Filter End Function Hope this helps,, Jim May "Domenic" wrote in message : Assuming that A4 contains the lookup value, try the following formula which needs to be confirmed with CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER, not just ENTER... =VLOOKUP(A4,IF(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET($A$10:$A$2000,ROW ($A$10:$A$2000)ROW($A$ 10),0,1)),$A$10:$M$2000),2,0) Adjust the column index number accordingly.
