From: Jen_T on 15 May 2010 00:09 Is it possibly to look at cell value and if in a range to place the record # in a cell ? E.g. Value in A2 that I need to know if in a range "R1234JK-3" RANGE Record # Proj # Billing # Review # 1 R1234JK-3 KIKII-87 KL12367 2 RM334 12456 0089JK_9 Ce;; Value returned in A3 "1" which stands for record 1 From: Bernard Liengme on 15 May 2010 08:50 I have interpreted this as follows; You have data such as Record # Proj # Billing # Review # 1 R1234JK-3 KIKII-87 KL12367 2 RM334 12456 0089JK_9 ..... I will assume this is in Sheet1 in cells A1:D100 On Sheet2 in cell A2 you have some text such as R1234JK-3 In cell A3 of the same sheet you want to know the record number in which this text appears in column B (the Proj# column) of Sheet1 Assuming the record numbers are in order, this will give the answer =MATCH(A2,Sheet1!B:B)-1 The reason for subtracting 1 is that the data begins with labels. If the labels had been in row 5, say( then we would use =MATCH(A2,Sheet1!B:B)-5 If the record numbers are not in order (or some are missing) then use =INDEX(Sheet1!A:A,MATCH(A2,Sheet1!B:B)) best wishes -- Bernard Liengme Microsoft Excel MVP http://people.stfx.ca/bliengme "Jen_T" wrote in message news:D56153F4-7D66-4C8F-A1B0-23853C66C0DB(a)microsoft.com...> Is it possibly to look at cell value and if in a range to place the record > # > in a cell ? > > E.g. > Value in A2 that I need to know if in a range "R1234JK-3" > > RANGE > Record # Proj # Billing # Review # > 1 R1234JK-3 KIKII-87 KL12367 > 2 RM334 12456 0089JK_9 > > Ce;; Value returned in A3 "1" which stands for record 1 From: Jen_T on 15 May 2010 09:23 The records are not in order so thank you for the INDEX function. My other concern is that sometimes there is multiple proj #s and may include the one I am looking for within that range. How would one accompolish checking the range in these types of situations.
