Dear Experts,

Could you please check the attached file, it has a Pivot sheet with values, which I would like to vlookup on Sheet1.

The pivot is special from that point of view, that it has four sums, and the product is always in the first line of sums so at Sum1. But I would need from those always the Sum4 value.

Do you have maybe idea how to do this with vlookup? On Sheet1 I copied manually these Sum4 values.

thanks,
VlookupPivot.xls

Hello,

In cell C2 you can use

=INDEX(Pivot!$C$1:$C$1000,MATCH(Sheet1!A2,Pivot!$A$1:$A$1000,0)+3)

Adjust the range to suit your maximum expected pivot table row.

copy down.

If each product ALWAYS has Sum1 - Sum4, then this simple formula should work:

=INDEX(Pivot!C:C,MATCH(A2,Pivot!A:A)+3)

You could also try GETPIVOTDATA, although without a sample that has an actual PivotTable it will be hard to give you the correct syntax.

csehz,

Try:

=OFFSET(Pivot!A1,MATCH(Sheet1!A2,Pivot!A1:A49,0)+2,2,1,1)

It's in the attached file.

csehz,

Thanks for the grade.

Just keep in mind that Offset() is volatile and will slow your workbook down. Index() calculates much faster and will not re-calculate with every cell change.

cheers, teylyn
