 Josef.angel Posts: n/a Vlookup - indexing

Hi all

instead of asking the formula to lookup 40 in the secondary document directly
I'm wanting to base my lookup on the value in a cell that is in the same row
as the formula.

=VLOOKUP(40,'Z:\[stock.xls]6064'!\$A9:\$D2504,4,TRUE)

trying to substitute 40 with a nested index without success.
=VLOOKUP([index(A15)],'Z:\[Consignment Stock
qty.xls]6064'!\$A\$5:\$D\$2500,4,TRUE)

thanks

 Frank Kabel Posts: n/a Hi
try:
=VLOOKUP(A15,'Z:\[stock.xls]6064'!\$A9:\$D2504,4,TRUE)

or if you look for an exact match use:
=VLOOKUP(A15,'Z:\[stock.xls]6064'!\$A9:\$D2504,4,FALSE)

 Josef.angel Posts: n/a i've tried doing that. & I get #n/a. value not available
the vlookup is directing it to lookup 40 specifically in the separate
I want it to only do that after it finds out what is in A15 in this document
first

Can you tell me how you reference a cell within a worksheet within a
workbook - brackets, quotes etc.

 Frank Kabel Posts: n/a Hi
so dou you mean something like
=IF('Z:\[stock.xls]6064'!A15="some
value",VLOOKUP(40,'Z:\[stock.xls]6064'!\$A9:\$D2504,4,TRUE),"A15 is something
else")

 Josef.angel Posts: n/a sort of.. BUT the A15 is on sheet1 called consignedmaterial of 3 different
sheets
and the if document is the one with the formula in it called index
BUT 2 - i don't want to type in the 40 thats what i'm trying to looking up
first.
the "if almost has to be inside the lookup where the 40 is.

=IF('Z:\[index.xls]6064'!A15="some
value",VLOOKUP(40,'Z:\[stock.xls]6064'!\$A9:\$D2504,4,TRUE),"A15 is something

 Frank Kabel Posts: n/a Hi Josef
following
- describe exactly what is on what sheet. You may even post some example data
- describe exactly what you're trying to lookup

I personally don't know what cell A15 is or what values you have on your
other sheets. And I don't get what you mean with:
"the A15 is on sheet1 called consignedmaterial of 3 different sheets"
Is it on sheet one or is it in three different sheets?

 Josef.angel Posts: n/a got it.
=VLOOKUP(ConsignedMaterials!\$A21,'[rb Consignment Stock Sales
play.xls]6064'!\$A\$5:\$D\$2500,4,TRUE)

but cells were formatted to 8 digit numbers
00000064
to
64
was the final key to retun required info.

thanks
