Goal Seek in MS Excel !

Goal Seek In MS Excel !

When you know the desired result of a single formula but not the input value the formula needs to determine the result, you can use the Goal Seek feature available by clicking,
Data —> What-If Analysis —> Goal Seek

When goal seeking, Microsoft Excel varies the value in one specific cell until a formula that’s dependent on that cell returns the result you want.

For example, use Goal Seek to change the interest rate in cell D7 incrementally until the payment value in D8 equals 7,500

Excel HLOOKUP

HLOOKUP

Searches for a value in the top row of a table or an array of values, and then returns a value in the same column from a row you specify in the table or array. Use HLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a row across the top of a table of data, and you want to look down a specified number of rows. Use VLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a column to the left of the data you want to find.

The H in HLOOKUP stands for “Horizontal.”

Syntax

HLOOKUP (lookup_value, table_array, row_index_num, range_lookup)

Lookup_value    is the value to be found in the first row of the table. Lookup_value can be a value, a reference, or a text string.

Table_array    is a table of information in which data is looked up. Use a reference to a range or a range name.

  • The values in the first row of table_array can be text, numbers, or logical values.
  • If range_lookup is TRUE, the values in the first row of table_array must be placed in ascending order: …-2, -1, 0, 1, 2,… , A-Z, FALSE, TRUE; otherwise, HLOOKUP may not give the correct value. If range_lookup is FALSE, table_array does not need to be sorted.
  • Uppercase and lowercase text are equivalent.
  • You can put values in ascending order, left to right, by selecting the values and then clicking Sort on the Data Click Options, click Sort left to right, and then click OK. Under Sort by, click the row in the list, and then click Ascending.

Row_index_num    is the row number in table_array from which the matching value will be returned. A row_index_num of 1 returns the first row value in table_array, a row_index_num of 2 returns the second row value in table_array, and so on. If row_index_num is less than 1, HLOOKUP returns the #VALUE! error value; if row_index_num is greater than the number of rows on table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #REF! error value.

Range_lookup    is a logical value that specifies whether you want HLOOKUP to find an exact match or an approximate match. If TRUE or omitted, an approximate match is returned. In other words, if an exact match is not found, the next largest value that is less than lookup_value is returned. If FALSE, HLOOKUP will find an exact match. If one is not found, the error value #N/A is returned.

Remarks

  • If HLOOKUP can’t find lookup_value, and range_lookup is TRUE, it uses the largest value that is less than lookup_value.
  • If lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first row of table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value.

Example

The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

Column –>
Row
A B C
1 Axles Bearings Bolts
2 4 4 9
3 5 7 10
4 6 8 11

 

Formula Description (Result)
=HLOOKUP(“Axles”,A1:C4,2,TRUE) Looks up Axles in row 1, and returns the value from row 2 that’s in the same column. (4)
=HLOOKUP(“Bearings”,A1:C4,3,FALSE) Looks up Bearings in row 1, and returns the value from row 3 that’s in the same column. (7)
=HLOOKUP(“B”,A1:C4,3,TRUE) Looks up B in row 1, and returns the value from row 3 that’s in the same column. Because B is not an exact match, the next largest value that is less than B is used: Axles. (5)
=HLOOKUP(“Bolts”,A1:C4,4) Looks up Bolts in row 1, and returns the value from row 4 that’s in the same column. (11)
=HLOOKUP(3,{1,2,3;”a”,”b”,”c”;”d”,”e”,”f”},2,TRUE) Looks up 3 in the first row of the array constant, and returns the value from row 2 in same column. (c)

 

Excel VLOOKUP

VLOOKUP

Searches for a value in the leftmost column of a table, and then returns a value in the same row from a column you specify in the table. Use VLOOKUP instead of HLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a column to the left of the data you want to find.

The V in VLOOKUP stands for “Vertical.”

Syntax

VLOOKUP (lookup_value, table_array, col_index_num, range_lookup)

Lookup_value is the value to be found in the first column of the array. Lookup_value can be a value, a reference, or a text string.

Table_array is the table of information in which data is looked up. Use a reference to a range or a range name, such as Database or List.

  • If range_lookup is TRUE, the values in the first row of table_array must be placed in ascending order: …-2, -1, 0, 1, 2,… , A-Z, FALSE, TRUE; otherwise, HLOOKUP may not give the correct value. If range_lookup is FALSE, table_array does not need to be sorted.
  • You can put the values in ascending order by choosing the Sort command from the Data menu and selecting Ascending.
  • The values in the first column of table_array can be text, numbers, or logical values.
  • Uppercase and lowercase text are equivalent.

Col_index_num is the column number in table_array from which the matching value must be returned. A col_index_num of 1 returns the value in the first column in table_array; a col_index_num of 2 returns the value in the second column in table_array, and so on. If col_index_num is less than 1, VLOOKUP returns the #VALUE! error value; if col_index_num is greater than the number of columns in table_array, VLOOKUP returns the #REF! error value.

Range_lookup is a logical value that specifies whether you want VLOOKUP to find an exact match or an approximate match. If TRUE or omitted, an approximate match is returned. In other words, if an exact match is not found, the next largest value that is less than lookup_value is returned. If FALSE, VLOOKUP will find an exact match. If one is not found, the error value #N/A is returned.

Remarks

  • If VLOOKUP can’t find lookup_value, and range_lookup is TRUE, it uses the largest value that is less than or equal to lookup_value.
  • If lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first column of table_array, VLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value.
  • If VLOOKUP can’t find lookup_value, and range_lookup is FALSE, VLOOKUP returns the #N/A value.

Example

The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

The example uses values for air at 1 ATM pressure.

Column–>
Row
A B C
1 Density Viscosity Temperature
2 0.457 3.55 500
3 0.525 3.25 400
4 0.616 2.93 300
5 0.675 2.75 250
6 0.746 2.57 200
7 0.835 2.38 150
8 0.946 2.17 100
9 1.09 1.95 50
10 1.29 1.71 0
Formula Description (Result)
=VLOOKUP(1,A2:C10,2) Looks up 1 in column A, and returns the value from column B in the same row (2.17)
=VLOOKUP(1,A2:C10,3,TRUE) Looks up 1 in column A, and returns the value from column C in the same row (100)
=VLOOKUP(.7,A2:C10,3,FALSE) Looks up 0.746 in column A. Because there is no exact match in column A, an error is returned (#N/A)
=VLOOKUP(0.1,A2:C10,2,TRUE) Looks up 0.1 in column A. Because 0.1 is less than the smallest value in column A, an error is returned (#N/A)
=VLOOKUP(2,A2:C10,2,TRUE) Looks up 2 in column A, and returns the value from column B in the same row (1.71)
