Re: [libreoffice-users] [more] Vlookup, and other Help

```Greetings,

You can do this with a set of VLOOKUP() functions. I started by
creating a table of values like so:

Ref Value B C D E F G H I 1 6 10 16 28 38 46 60 80 2 12 20 32 56 76 92
120 160 3

180 40 4

30

The values in column 1 are the values you will find in the B to I
cells. The other values are the values you will want to get based on
the IF() statements. I also named that table RefValues. Now, instead of
using something like:

=IF(B4=1;6)+IF(B4=2;12)+IF(C4=1;10)+IF(C4=2;20)

you can now use something like this:

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B4,RefValues,2,0),0)+IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C4,RefValues,3,0)
,0)+(...)+IFERROR(VLOOKUP(i4,RefValues,9,0),0)

If you really want to be fancy, you can do this with an array formula
that will process the entire set in one go, like so:

{=SUM(IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B4:I4;RefValues;COLUMN(B4:I4);0);0))}

To get this in, you enter the formula without the braces and then
terminate with CTRL-SHIFT-Enter. You may need to replace the
COLUMN(B4:I4) with something different if you want to index correctly
in the RefValue table.

I hope this helps.
Rémy.

```The reason is as the IF statements have grown, changed, copied --
they
are not working as they should. And this is why Im looking for a
better way. IF!!! I could do this in a db with a better front end -
that would be great but - Im not sure this company will let me do
that
so for right now - small steps to at least fix all the problems this
sheet is causing.  As for specifically H and I, both of those items
have had - as said in the original post - more possible values added
to over time, and will each have 5 possible values in a few months
so,
the IF statement will be updated again and if someone put the wrong
numbers in or it gets corrupted by the copying - Ill need to go back
and fix that. Its a mess.

Looked at the spreadsheet and tried some things, but not clear on
Copied formula from first row down to row 16 then modified.
=IF(B16=1,6)+IF(B16=2,12)
+IF(C16=1,10)+IF(C16=2,20)
+IF(D16=1,16)+IF(D16=2,32)
+IF(E16=1,28)+IF(E16=2,56)
+IF(F16=1,38)+IF(F16=2,76)
+IF(G16=1,46)+IF(G16=2,92)
+IF(H16=1,60)+IF(H16=2,120)+IF(H16=3,180)+IF(H16=4,30)
+IF(I16=1,80)+IF(I16=2,160)+IF(I16=3,40)
Not clear why H16 being 4 give 30 where previous patterns would
have it give 240?? Same with I16 being 3 gives 40 instead of 240.
Came with this simple formula and it mached result in most cases.
=b16*6+c16*10+d16*16+e16*28+f16*38+g16*46*h16*60+i16*80
Copied the relative formulas and numbers matched except where
values in H or I was 4 or 3.
Didn't look at vlookup formula.
Did note that on some of the lower rows you have blanks in cells
that resulted in #value, but chaning them to 0 resulted in correct
numbers.
So, is there a reason why H and I being 4 or 3 give different
values from the pattern. Same thing with shifting to other blocks.

```Well, that is odd.

I thought I was making headway but just got myself into more
of a problem.

The link above is a sample of what Im working with.
In this spread sheet I have hundreds of sections of this that
are

If you click on cell BG4 you'll see the IF hell function that
I
continually update (and fix).
This is created by someone else and the IF statement doesnt
account
for all the things
that are currently going on but - in general - Section One is
B4 to
I4. The entire colored
space from B3 to I13 is the whole section. Each row is
calculated by
putting in 1 thru 4 under
each item name, though at the moment, and the reason Im
looking to do
3 and 4 and the coming 5 are not being calculated.

Row 4, B4 to I4 either a 1 or 2 is put in. J4 is the number
of items.
Cell BE4 totals all items from each section.

Cell BG4 - currently the massive and incorrect IF statement -
each cell and calculates
a number. In this example, F4 is BL SM and is a 1 so BG is
38. Each
row can have a 1 thru 4
(upcoming 5) in each of the available cells.

Looking at Row 7, Cell BG7 is the start of something I
thought would
work but... I got stuck.
And, to be really honest, I got stuck writing this email for
help
because - I got lost in trying to
explain this HAHA

Looking at the function in BG7, check if its a number first
and then
look up the value of F3 item
1 in Sheet two which is 38. Cell BG8 does the same but shows
the
quickly growing IF statement
for getting data for 2 cells.

Question: does someone know of an easier way to do this
without
ongoing IF statements?
