IF THEN WHERE statement?

I have two sheets in a workbook. I need to set a cell's value where the ID on one sheet equals the ID on a different sheet. But there's not always going to be a match, they don't line up equally.  Is there a way where Excel looks for the value within an entire column, and if it finds one, it grabs the value in the other cell. (Excel 365 on Windows 10)

So: set sheet1:B2 to sheet2:VendorID.? where sheet1.AgentID = sheet2.VenderCode

Can that be done?

Sheet 1 Sheet 2 10 Replies

Re: IF THEN WHERE statement?

Please consider convert to number the ID values

=INDEX(Sheet2!A2:A17,MATCH(A2,Sheet2!B2:B17,0),1)

Yes, it can be done quite easily.

In your sheet 1, whatever column you wish to enter it

=INDEX(Sheet2!A2:A18,MATCH(Sheet1!A2,Sheet2!B2:B18,0))

Note, I just entered through row 18 because that's how far your image extended; those two references to A2:A19 and B2:B19 should reflect the actual size the data array in your own Sheet2)

Re: IF THEN WHERE statement?

=XLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!B:B,Sheet2!A:A)
Will work also. Just drag down.

Re: IF THEN WHERE statement?

As a comment, with XLOOKUP we may return entire spill at once

=XLOOKUP(A2:A10,Sheet2!B2:B100,Sheet2!A2:A100, "no such")

Didn't know this! I'll actually start using this in my day-to-day work, thanks for explaining!

Re: IF THEN WHERE statement?

Thanks! I entered it and I got 0 back as a value. I'm trying to figure out why because there's an entry it should have picked up

Re: IF THEN WHERE statement?

EDIT: I figured out what I did wrong and the formula is working. Thank you!
